Well I can't say I'm an expert, but you need to cover up that you're missing from your cell as well as your escape route to allow yourself the time to escape also having the officers finding your escape route. I would recommend first gathering non-illegal items to use for your escape (unless you can hold 6 illegal items and put them back after breakfast and lights out). As your stuck in there looking for supplies, try to do some favors for some money to buy supplies you can't find, have no access to (like job items such as police uniforms), or get recipe papers for your crafting (which you will need to rely on). Depending when you want to work on your escape route, it may take some days or less. I haven't tried it, but you could try break a part of the wall in your cell to the outside, but keep in mind you want to cover the escape route by placing a bed dummy (2 pillows and sheets) and put back the wall you broke down where it was. You can be as creative as you want to be from there. Just take your time getting the hang of how much time you have, and what 6 items you will bring to your way to freedom. Good luck.

Bed Check: Craft a bed dummy because if a guard comes by and your cell is empty it's off to solitary for you instantly. This is done with a sheet and 2 pillows, which are gotten by right-clicking on a bed a second time after you steal the sheet. There is a minor annoyance where to pick it back up you have to take the sheet and pillow off your bed first but that's not that big of a deal, the pillow counts as a weapon and can be handed to someone for a small boost of opinion.

Vents: Craft a fake vent cover with 2 paper mache. Paper mache is made from super glue and toilet paper. Fake vents have 5 uses before they degrade so while this has the most easily accessible space for leaving stuff you have to be sparing with it. Alternately if you have a screwdriver you can just put the actual vent back and it only has 5% left so a single use will always reopen the vent

Walls: There are 3 ways to cover a wall hole. Placing the wall block back down which leaves it at 10% durability, crafting a fake wall block with 2 paper mache and 1 ink but this has durability and will degrade in 5 uses, or the absolute best option is to craft a poster from a magazine and duct tape. The poster has no durability and can be taken down and replaced(just right click on it like all fake covers) as much as you want. How the guards don't notice the generator shack suddenly has a poster in it for no reason I don't know but it makes it easy to get in and out of your cell and other places.

Tunnels: You can place your desk over the hole to hide it for easy access. Dealing with the dirt is actually extremely simple, just give it to other prisoners. I haven't actually used tunnels for escape yet and just use them for contraband storage because if you get sent to solitary while the will confiscate everything and fill back in the hole, the open are below is still open. Just grab 4 plastic spoons and reopen the hole and you have your storage area open again. I would assume this would still apply for long escape tunnels but you would have to get the braces to extend it any further.

Toilets: This is somewhat risky but toilets can hold 3 items and are not searched during a desk check. Just make sure you don't flush. Also be aware that things in the toilet slots are NOT saved to the save file. This means that while they remain through sleeping and waking up, anything that was in the toilet slots just vanish if you load the game. Useful to dispose of some things without risking an overflow and being discovered if you want to use it as an exploit but gifting unwanted items is usually better and safer. I tend to store my Bed Dummy in the toilet for easy retrieval when Lights Out comes and if I forget to keep it in my inv when I sleep/save and it vanishes on a game load then it is no real loss.

Other Desks: These work for a short term storage space. Just make sure you pack mule's name isn't called and you'll be fine. Dirt and wall blocks are the exception, if these are found anywhere the whole place goes on lockdown and you will go to solitary so these must be disposed of ASAP.

Those tips will help but the best advice I can give is to go slowly. Take your time and make sure everything is done right and won't be seen, if it would be risky to do something at a certain time, don't do it then. Unless you're on your final escape attempt then rarely is something time sensitive enough to be worth risking being sent to solitary and having all loose contraband everywhere(vents, tunnels, and crawlways inside walls) confiscated. Other inmate's desks aren't but those risk being randomly searched.

Some more very helpful tips:

Desk Refresh: Each time you sleep all other desks besides your own are restocked with a comb, toothpaste, toilet paper, and soap. That makes these items infinitely available and thus pointless to horde inside your own desk, just pop into another person's cell and snag what you need when you need it.

Comb Shivs: Following along with the last one, combs are restocked every day. gather combs from desks, use them on a wall(10 fatigue each), and make them into shivs. Then you can give them to other inmates for a boost of opinion. You can also do this for a much smaller boost with pillows.


The easiest way out of the very easy map is to chip your way into the tunnel behind your cell, cover or replace the wall, do it again within the fenced area to the right, then cut through the fence to the right of the guard tower while wearing a guard uniform. You could do this with plastic silverware within 2-3 days by leaving the wall/fence at 4% durability and only one hit away to prep it for your escape.

Really it's not knowing about the plastic silverware being able to be used as tools that trips up most people I think, they should probably be added to the info boxes when you go through the first day of Center Perks.

You’ve committed crime but now you’re caught. With thrilling and immersive gameplay, you need to create an escape route in a world of other prisoners and ruled by routine.

You’re banged up.What will you do within the limited time? Will you ran out of ideas or will you escape successfully? See if you can manage the routes and break the walls.

Watch out the guards, see if you can use all handy things to help you out. You must have done it under their noses with cunning strategies. Will you willing to live a pison life or try to find a way out?

Escaping requires cunning, strategy, the right equipment and staying at least two steps ahead of the guards. Recruit your fellows and create your own gang. You might even take over a prison! The guards are out to stop any escape attempts, so you’ll have to avoid suspicious behaviour and pretend being tamed, working a prison job and hiding your stolen contraband.

The Escapists is a thrilling sandbox strategy prison simulator that challenges you to bust out in a number of different ways. How you survive and do that is up to you, all will be decided by  yourself. But when you’re out of your cell, a rigid daily schedule is designed to keep you in line. You're expected to work at one of several jobs during the day, exercise and showers are mandatory.

some points from the players:right click on a bed to take the bed-sheet, any bed counts and other prisoners don't get pissy about it even if they are still sleeping there. You can use a bedsheet on the bars of your cell to cover them to hide what you are doing. The guards will eventually take them down so it is best to save the sheets in your desk and do this about an hour after lights out(around 00:00), do your stuff and then take them down and put them back into your desk when you are done. They can also be used during the day to hide a somewhat risky move like hiding contraband in a tunnel or the vents that you won't be able to hold in your inventory if a desk check happens but will the sheets not last long before being taken down so make it quick if you absolutely have to.
