Usage[edit | edit source]

The File is used to create cutters and tool handles. It has 13 uses. They can be crafted into Flimsy Cutters or Tool Handles. Cutters can be used to cut vents, slats and fences. Note that although the File itself also does some cutting, it is more effective to use the Cutters, since they are faster to cut and longer lasting. Tool handles can be used to create shovels and pickaxes, which make the File an indispensable item in the act of breaking out of any prison, regardless of the difficulty, since they are one of the base materials in the craft of the most effective tools in the game, along with the famous Roll of Duct Tape. Files are also items in The Escapists: The Walking Dead.
