The Bed Dummy is a usable item that is placed on the player's bed.


The Bed Dummy can be used to cover an escape at night. Place it in your bed at night and the Guards will not set off a lockdown/send the player to solitary when they see the player's cell empty. To remove it, hold [interact] facing the bed.

Does not work when placed on an NPC's bed (Except The Escapists 2). Can only be placed with a pillow and bed sheet already on the bed. Note when a bed dummy is tucked in a bed, players are not able to sleep on it (however, NPCs can).

Do note that using the Bed Dummy does not entirely protect you - if seen by a guard while outside during Lights Out, you will be sent to solitary/a lockdown will ensue nonetheless. Wear a Guard Outfit, Infirmary Overalls or even a Civilian Outfit (TE2) to prevent this.

The Bed Dummy is a very cheap item, so using it to increase a character's opinion is viable. It increases opinion by 3.
