The Escapists 2 had totally remade the combat, as now there is blocking and better fighting. The player can block by using Right Click (Default) and it makes you take no damage, however, you are slow and every time you are hit while blocking it takes fatigue and thus you can't block forever. You can attack by Left Clicking (Default) and you will attack only once and your active weapon will hurt others. Holding Left Click will charge your attack and deal extra damage by moving you forward from the attack and you can stop moving by letting go of Left Click. This means that it no longer matters if you have a higher strength and/or speed (Now called fitness) to beat an enemy. With the right strategy, you can block and attack and not get hurt while damaging others! Also, you can use the middle mouse button to target the people you want to attack, making it easier to fight!


Note: this section is added to help you if you don't have one, but if you Decide to Add a Strategy, than You sure may. Anyone can edit. Please feel free to add your strategy here.

Strategy Name Giving, Difficulty Deciding, and Effectiveness (how good it works on certain targets).

You should give your strategy a name AND a difficulty. But what's the hard part? Most likely the difficulty. If it's the name, then just think of your strategy, retrace each step, put it into action, see how that looks and then give your strategy a name that reminds you of what you've seen. Now, the difficulties:


  • Has up to 4 steps
  • Easy to pull off
  • You have legible grammar


  • Has 5-8 steps
  • Not too hard to pull off
  • May not be the most legible


  • Has 9-15 steps
  • Pretty hard to pull off
  • May be pretty illegible


  • Has 16+ steps
  • Almost impossible
  • Might have glitches that make it hard.
  • May be freakishly illegible

Now we will talk about Effectiveness. There are 2 Effectiveness titles, one is Just One Victim, Group is tightly packed clusters.

Strategy 1: Hit and Run 1

This strategy is categorized as:

  • Medium to Master
  • Very Effective on ONE target, IF speedily used step by Step. I once used it to k-o a Riot Guard, with either a broom or a mop!
  1. Target your Victim (this step is very Important).
  2. Charge attack him/her.
  3. Run away after hitting target.
  4. Charge attack while running (still target them, you should auto chase them while charging)
  5. Dash Away again
  6. Repeat 4. and 5. until Victim is out-cold

Congratulations! You have successfully wasted time fighting someone.

Strategy 2: Hit and Run 2

  • Easy to Master
  • Effective Towards groups
  1. Run around and in and light attack enemies until they are out-cold

Congratulations! You have successfully wasted time fighting someone.

Strategy 3: Hit n' Block:

  • Normal to master
  • This works only with one player/enemies
  1. Hit the enemies and block and keep on blocking until the enemies charge attack and then before they complete hit, attack them and block


  1. Hit the enemies after they attack and keep on repeating until knocked out and make sure that guards don't notice!

Congratulations! You wasted time (but for good) fighting someone.

Strategy 4: Job for others:

  • Easy to normal
  • Inmate only
  • NOT good for favors since you need to personally knock them out to get credit
  • Don't reduce much opinion
  1. Hit an inmate then wait for him to follow you
  2. Go ahead of a guard and get hit
  3. Run around the guard so he can hit

Congratulations! You didn't use much energy.
