Center Perks Edit

The Preparation Edit

  1. Get your speed and strength to 60+ and get a good weapon (Glass Shank or a Makeshift Bat should do the trick). Cups of Molten Chocolate will help massively, if you can get more than 4, you may as well skip this part.
  2. Increase your opinion with fellow inmates (You may not need to do this if you have a good weapon and high strength and speed)
  3. Get 4 duct tapes or lengths of rope

The Takeover Edit

  1. Attract the guards in some way to your cell (I did this by clogging the toilet). Remember to recruit your buddies if you have any.
  2. Knock em out and tie em up
  3. Once you get the letter from the warden, pick up a guard and walk to the southern entrance gates
  4. If it is 10pm-10am, you will need the Entrance Key, although you do not need a plastic one because the guards are tied down. Simply take the Entrance Key from whichever guard has it and you don't need to worry because the guards can't get up
  5. Escape!

Stalag Flucht Edit

The Preparation Edit

  1. Get your speed and strength to 60+ and get a 5 / 5 weapon like Nunchucks or a Whip
  2. (Optional) Get over 80 opinion with inmates (I did this by stealing combs from desk, making comb shivs and giving them to inmates)
  3. Get four duct tapes or ropes

In order to do the method below, it will help if you get Woodshop, Tailor or Janitor job, even if it's just for the procedure of taking over

The Takeover Edit

  1. Go to the job area. Do not use a contraband pouch. Activate the detector. This is how you will attract guards.
  2. Beat up the guards and tie them up. If you have the Woodshop, Tailor or Janitor job, store your kidnapped guards in your respective job area. Wait til guards come into the building. DO NOT exit the building. You will get shot by the sniper towers and guards may come in while you are not looking and untie the captives
  3. When you get the surrender note from the warden, exit the building from the left (remember a hostage). When you exit the building go straight down and there will be an unlocked door. Walk through the door
  4. Enjoy being free!

Shankton State Pen Edit

The Preparation Edit

  1. Get 8 duct tapes or ropes
  2. Befriend inmates, 3-4 should be enough (a great way to befriend these inmates is to get the Kitchen Job and make a little extra chicken, then give to random inmates multiple times)
  3. Get your stats up to 80+
  4. Get a strong weapon like a Whip or Nunchucks
  5. Get at least 3 cups of molten hot chocolate

It may be useful to keep your duct tapes and hot chocolates in the secret corridor behind the cell walls

The Takeover Edit

  1. At rollcall, use 3 cups of hot chocolate on the guards
  2. Tie them up and hold them captive in the job area
  3. Attract guards or go look for them, but make sure that no guards manage to untie the 3 captives
  4. Keep on beating up guards and tying them up
  5. When you get the note, steal any keys you need for your escape
  6. Reach the gate and you're free!

Jungle Compound Edit

The Preparation Edit

  1. Get 8 duct tapes or ropes
  2. Get strength and speed to 90+
  3. Get Nunchucks or Whip
  4. Get at least 3 hot chocolates
  5. Get Exotic Feather and Ink
  6. Get a Plastic Staff Key
  7. Get a Guard Outfit

I would also recommend getting plenty of Medkits and Bottles of Medicine

The Takeover Edit

  1. At morning rollcall, attack the three guards with hot chocolate. Pick one up immediately to use as a hostage, or you will be shot immediately (when doing this, I got shot twice because I didn't pick them up quickly enough, luckily I had 50 health, so I survived but I used up all my medkits).
  2. Tie them up and hold them captive in your cell
  3. Exit the cell quarters and look for other guards. REMEMBER THE HOSTAGE or you will get blown to pieces by snipers
  4. Attract them to your cell, put down the hostage and fight the guard in your cell. Rinse and repeat
  5. Disguise as a guard by putting on the outfit
  6. When you get the note from the warden that opens the gate, take a hostage and go to the gate up north
  7. Get into the guards' sleeping quarters and steal the ID Papers
  8. Sign that bad boy
  9. Go to the south of the prison
  10. Give the papers to good old Checkpoint Charlie
  11. Charlie will let you through, even though it looks like you are a guard who is casually carrying a hostage and walking away from a colossal riot
  12. Profit

San Pancho Edit

The Takeover Edit

  1. Wait until 23:00 lights out
  2. Put on the Guard Outfit
  3. Go through the Red Door
  4. Get a couple guards to follow you. If you have two red keys, it's better to do it one at a time
  5. Get them to chase you around the courtyard while you knock them out one by one with the hot chocolate
  6. When all of them are knocked out, tie them up and hold them hostage in the deliveries warehouse.
  7. Repeat from Step 3 to Step 7 until you get the note from the warden
  8. Get to the secret room
  9. Get in the hole and go to the northern-most point of your underground passage. Dig up with a Sturdy Shovel at the very end

HMP Irongate Edit

WARNING! THIS IS GOING TO BE HORRIFICALLY HARD. THIS WILL TAKE MANY ATTEMPTS

The Preparation Edit

This is going to be very different to other takeovers that you will have done. You do not need high strength or speed. Just really good luck.

  1. Get 10 molten hot chocolates
  2. Get 10 duct tapes and/or lengths of rope
  3. Create the Makeshift Raft.
  4. Dig under your desk. This is where you'll store the raft

The Takeover Edit

  1. Go to the cell block and attack a guard with a hot chocolate
  2. Hold him captive somewhere (I did this challenge twice, once I kept the captives in cells, another time I hid them in the infirmary. I would recommend to infirmary because it's bigger and you won't have to keep them in multiple different places)
  3. Keep doing this until lockdown occurs
  4. Go round and find guards. MAKE SURE THEY DON'T TOUCH YOU. THAT WILL KILL YOU BECAUSE THEY HAVE STUN RODS.
  5. When you find one, keep running away from that guard, then turn around quickly and hit them with the hot chocolate
  6. Tie him up
  7. Repeat until you find the guard with the Staff Key. take the Staff Key and then continue.
  8. Get the surrender note from the warden
  9. Take the makeshift raft
  10. Go the rollcall area and go out of the Staff Door
  11. Keep on going through the red doors
  12. Continue walking south
  13. When you reach water, walk east until you reach the port (2x3 area of wood floor tiles)
  14. Use the raft on the port
  15. Profit
