Favours are jobs you can do for other inmates to raise their opinion of you and earn cash. Declining jobs will cause that inmate to lower their opinion of you, causing them to raise store prices, snitch on you and attack you on occasion. This also includes accepting a job and later giving up on it.

Favour Types

Distraction

This favour is accomplished by targeting and hitting an inmate or guard during an assembly event, causing the guards to focus on chasing after you. Alternatively, you can take off your clothing briefly.

The events during which this favour can be carried out are:

  • Rollcall
  • Meals
  • Exercise Period
  • Shower Period

You do not need to knock out the person you choose to target, you just need to hit him once. Payment is received the moment you hit your target once.

Be careful not to hit the inmate you are doing the favour for, as you will not get your payment if you do so.

  • At next [period] distract the guards for me while I slip away -- I've got a cell to shakedown!
  • I've been tailing a thieving rat for days and worked out his routine. Distract the guards at next [period] for me so I can check his stash.
  • Distract the guards at next [period] so I can dish out some justice using this screwdriver!

Beatdown

This favour involves knocking out a inmate or guard. As your target will attempt to fight back, it is recommended that you train your strength and speed before you perform Beatdown favours, especially if your target is a guard, as guards hit much harder than most inmates since they use Batons (or Stun Rods). When carrying out a beating job, follow your target first and beat him up when he is in an isolated area, as Guards will attempt to knock you down if they see you attacking a target. The beatdowns involving a guard will reward you twice as much as inmate beatdowns.

  • That punk [inmate] has been disrespecting me. Knock him about the place a bit and I'll pay you.
    • [inmate] is plotting something- i can smell it. Go knock him down and remind him who's in charge.
  • Pretty sure [officer] fancies me. Go break his face.

Item Return

This favour involves retrieving an item from a specific inmate or guard.

Inmates may have the item in their desk or on their person; if it is in their desk, you can simply raid it to retrieve the item, but if it is on their person, you will have to either knock him out personally or wait for him to be knocked out by a guard or another inmate, and then raid his body for the item.

As guards do not have living quarters, the item will always be on their person, so if your target is a guard, you will most likely have to knock him out personally, as other inmates are almost never capable of knocking out guards by themselves.

The item you will need to retrieve will flash repeatedly and will bear the owner's name in front of the item name. You do not need to personally bring it back to its owner; you just need to pick it up.

Payment is received the moment you pick up the required item.

  • I paid [inmate] good money for a [item] and he never delivered. Get it for me and I'll pay you for the trouble.
  • [inmate] and his pals extorted a [item] of me. Thing is, I want it back. How about it?

Find Item

This favour involves finding a specific item and bringing it back to the inmate that asked for it.

The item requested can be acquired from any source, whether you buy or steal it, but you must personally bring the item back to the inmate that asked for it and giving it to him through the "Give" tab.

Payment is received the moment you give the requested item to the inmate in question.

  • I need a [item], can you hook me up with one?

Tips

  • Prepare a Wad of Putty if you need to beat down a guard, so that if the guard has a Key, you can complete your favour and make a Key Mold. at the same time.
  • Try finding the requested items from 'Find Item' jobs by raiding other inmate's desks first, so that you can complete such jobs without needing to spend money to buy the items.
  • If the target of an Item Return favour is an inmate, you can attack him first, then lure him to a guard and let him hit you once so that the guard will attack and knock him out, saving your health in the process.
  • Do not do too many Distraction jobs in a row, as they will increase your Guard Heat substantially, potentially resulting in you being shot by a Tower Guard and sent to the Infirmary.
