The Stepladder is an item in The Escapists.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

The Stepladder can only be purchased from inmates. It cannot be crafted.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Stepladder is a useful tool for entering or reentering vents from below. Placing the Stepladder on a tile will allow you to stand on it, like a Desk. This lets you see the ventilation system, unscrew/cut vent covers and enter vents.

Be aware that once used to get into a vent, the stepladder will remain where placed and will need to be retrieved.

In the console version the Stepladder cannot be placed down so you have to drop it by pressing B on your controller. Once it is dropped you can stand on it.

The stepladder has the same effect as a desk, so there is no need to buy it unless you need to access vents away from your cell.
