ItemID: 60
Won't be confiscated
Limited-Use Item


The Flashlight (Called a Torch in Xbox 1 and possibly PS4) can be used to cast light in any dark place, mainly in tunnels or at night when you are outside of your cell. This item has limited use even though you can't actually equip or use this item, but somehow guards can. The use button for the flashlight is X in the Xbox version and activates automatically in PC. You can also beat down a guard and carry them as they have a flashlight, but this is not highly recommended as the guard will wake up and it won't be much use. The flashlight will not work in mobile. It is needed to escape the Jingle Cells prison.


This item is used by guards at night while keeping an eye out for escaping prisoners. It can be bought from inmates or found in their desks. Though guards do carry flashlights at night, they don't always have them in their inventory when beaten down. It is not essential as ALL escapes can be executed fine without one. It just increases the light level forward...ly...ish.
