Will be confiscated
Limited-Use Item
Digging 5 / 5
Chipping 5 / 5

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Multitool is the best digging/chipping tool in The Escapists and The Escapists 2. Currently not on the Console, or Mobile

Effectiveness[edit | edit source]

The multitool is 5/5 for both digging and chipping. Like a Sturdy Pickaxe it takes 5 uses on a wall to chip through (20% per successful chip), and it plows through a rock underground in no time (depending on the rocks initial durability usually 1-3 hits). Digging dirt underground takes 3 uses on a dirt space to clear it (33% on each dirt space), just like a Sturdy Shovel, and 5 uses to dig a hole up or down (20% per dig).

Durability[edit | edit source]

The multitool only degrades 1% per use, meaning you can dig 33 dirt spaces underground (with no boulders) or chip through 20 wall blocks before it breaks! Assuming you have enough fatigue to dig that much! Unfortunately, there is no way to repair or upgrade a multitool, so If you need to dig more than it can hold up to, you have to make a brand new one from scratch.

Bacsically, a multitool has the power of a Sturdy Shovel and a Sturdy Pickaxe together, but combined into one item! So you don't have to switch between a shovel for dirt and a pickaxe for rocks while digging a tunnel. You only need to have one item. this makes it much faster to tunnel underground. And because of the durability you can dig/ chip through many more dirt spaces or wall blocks before it breaks compared to a shovel/pickaxe.
