Strategies[edit | edit source]

Paris Central Pen has a zipline point on the roof of the prison to the northeast. This is the only way to escape, as the perimeter wall is too thick to chip through, and there's reinforced blocks underneath the prison, preventing tunnelling. The only way to use the zipline point is with a Zipline Hook.png Zipline Hook, and so you will need one of those before you can escape.

Crafting the Zipline Hook requires:

Item Requirements Intelligence Required Extra Info
Zipline Hook.png Zipline Hook Timber.png Timber + Wire.png Wire 60

You will need:

Zipline Hook.png Zipline Hook

Bed Dummy.png Bed Dummy

Fake Vent Cover.png Fake Vent Cover

Sheet Rope.png Sheet Rope or Length of Rope.png Length of Rope

Flimsy Cutters.png Flimsy Cutters or higher (If you have not cut the vent and slats open in advance, you will need Lightweight Cutters.png Lightweight Cutters at least)

Flimsy Pickaxe.png Flimsy Pickaxe or higher

Guard Outfit.png Guard Outfit (Optional)

Any type of food to lower fatigue (Optional)


To prepare in advance, you will need to cut or unscrew the vent in your cell, and then a set of slats immediately afterwards. Once these are both sorted out, it is just a matter of acquiring the list of items above.


On the night of your escape, place the Bed Dummy.png Bed Dummy in your bed and take off the Fake Vent Cover.png Fake Vent Cover (Prepare a second one in advance, if you feel it's about to break) and then replace it when you're in the vent layer. If you haven't done so yet, cut or unscrew the slats right after your vent. (If you haven't done this yet, you may need Lightweight Cutters.png Lightweight Cutters instead, in order to make it the whole way). Follow the vents around and put on your Guard Outfit.png Guard Outfit, if you have one. There should be a ladder to the roof. Climb up it, and you will be on a pedestal in the middle of the roof. Be careful, as there are searchlights sweeping the roof around this pedestal, and they will detect you if you don't have a guard outfit on. Make your way northeast of this roof section, and there should be a metal beam connecting to another roof. Go along it.


Down below, there should be grass, an electrified fence, and concrete. Use your Sheet Rope.png Sheet Rope/Length of Rope.png Length of Rope and rappel down onto the grass. Next, go along the perimeter of the prison all the way to the northwest. Once you're at the top-left of the prison courtyard, head down until you see a small room with a ladder leading up. Use your pickaxe to chip down a section of the wall so you can get inside. Place the wall block back in the hole after you're through, in case any patrolling officers happen to wander in this direction. Now climb the ladder and you'll be back on the roof.


Follow the metal beams to another fence. Follow that along until you reach the north side of the fence, and then use the cutters to get through that section (This is why you'd need Lightweight Cutters, if you didn't deal with the slats in advance). You can leave the hole there, since you're escaping now. One you're through the fence, you should be able to head right. There is one last searchlight sweeping that section of the roof. Head right and get past it, and you should see the zipline start. Use your Zipline Hook.png Zipline Hook on it, and you'll zipline out of the prison. The game will end once you land on the adjoining roof.
