Questions & Answers
How to Give Items for Favors to Complete a Mission in The Escapists?
Some players ask, how to give something to someone in The Escapists? I thinks they want to know how to give items for favors to complete a mission. The more common question is, when they are doing a “give this item to this person” favor, they go to whoever it is and press but it doesn’t bring up the interface to give them stuff.
It is because they don’t use the right item. For example, Alan might want Steven’s bar of chocolate. This means that any old bar of chocolate won’t do. Players can obtain said bar by either beating up Steven and taking it from him, or searching his desk. If players give the correct item to the correct person it should give them the reward. Otherwise he won’t get a response.
What Does Speed Do in The Escapists?
Speed help to escape when your being chased. A higher Speed decreases the time between attacks, increasing the character’s damage per second. Fitness increases movement speed and reduces energy loss when attacking, blocking and digging.
