K.A.P.O.W Camp is one of the Maps in The Escapists 2. One unique escape is needed to unlock this prison. Upon entering, during the cutscenes where the warden gives you the tour, he says that the 3rd floor is haunted. He may just be saying that because this is actually the way of the "Glide to Victory" escape. Look below for more info on how to escape. K.A.P.O.W. Camp is marked as medium difficulty, meaning it is somewhat difficult.

Description[edit | edit source]

Captured behind enemy lines, you and your squadron find yourself thrown in the notorious K.A.P.O.W. camp. Not content with sitting out the rest of the war, you decide to comb your quiff and find a way out of this joint in true Hollywood-heartthrob style!

Cell Desks[edit | edit source]

Due to the cameras located in the cell rooms, guards will be alerted if you search a desk that is not your own. To combat this, you can either:

  • Wear a guard outfit (obtained by crafting or from looting an unconscious guard).
  • Move all the desks into the adjacent room below the bathroom. Because the desks are out of sight from the camera, you can freely search with no heat level. Blocking the red door is no problem, the guards will still use them and climb over/through the desks.
  • Jam the camera by using a Roll of Duct Tape, which will consume the tape and temporarily disable the camera.
  • Switch off the generator, since it doesn't require any keys and anyone can access it.
  • Search them from the side when the cameras are facing away so they do not notice.

Escape Plans[edit | edit source]

  • Perimeter Breakout
  • Speed McQueen (The Motorcycle scene is a Reference to the 1963 Film The Great Escape).
  • Glide To Victory (Probably based on a planned escape of Colditz Castle in WW2)

Ways To Escape[edit | edit source]

In the K.A.P.O.W. Camp there are 3 possible ways to escape.

Perimeter Breakout[edit | edit source]

Preparation:[edit | edit source]

The Escape:

After placing the bed dummy in your cell, check in to Evening Roll Call.

Rush to the generator room. You may use the northeastern passage if you do not have a Contraband Pouch.

When Lights Out hits, turn off the generator and run through the red or purple door and through the Contraband Detector south of the meal hall and turn south and then south-east. Cut through the two fences.

Congratulations, you are free!

Trivia[edit | edit source]

This Prison is a reference to Prisoner of War Camps in WW2. Notably, the Glide to Victory escape is inspired by a real-life plan to escape Colditz Castle, a German camp, via a glider. Its name is a pun on Prisoner of War, which is commonly abbreviated as POW, thus forming the English onomatopoeia from which you can derive "kapow".
