Currently this port from the PC to the Xbox one and PS4 does have bugs and may effect overall gameplay. The list is incomplete as of now so if their are any bugs please label them in this section and make sure it is a bug that can be recreated in-game.

  • Punching Bags: There is a bug were no more than two successful trigger pulls would not register into the training meter resulting in not earning any speed at all.
  • Unnecessary Heat: There is a bug were the player can be accused of trespassing in a inmate's cell even if they have the mailman or library jobs, thus meaning that all mail and books must be given to the prisoners instead.
  • Self-Defense: There is a uncommon bug were players can be wrongly accused of starting a fight with another inmate even though they didn't throw the first punch or if the hostile inmate hits the player and somehow raising the heat meter, officers will also Attack the player who fought back at the inmate.
  • Roll Calls: If you are knocked unconscious at the last second of Evening Roll Call the screen will be covered in black.
