ItemID: 60
Won't be confiscated
Limited-Use Item

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Flashlight (Called a Torch on Console versions) can be used to cast light in any dark place, mainly in tunnels or at night when you are outside of your cell. This item has limited use even though you can't actually equip or use this item, but somehow guards can. The use button for the flashlight is X in the Xbox version and activates automatically in PC. You can also beat down a guard and carry them as they have a flashlight, but this is not highly recommended as the guard will wake up and it won't be much use. The flashlight will not work in mobile. It is needed to escape the Jingle Cells prison.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

This item is used by guards at night while keeping an eye out for escaping prisoners. It can be bought from inmates or found in their desks. Though guards do carry flashlights at night, they don't always have them in their inventory when beaten down. It is not essential as most escapes (with the exception of Jingle Cells and Santas Sweatshop) can be executed fine without one.
