Description[edit | edit source]

Riot Guards (Also known as SWAT Guards) are incredibly tougher than the normal Guards. They can easily knockout any ill-prepared Inmates that are retaliating or escaping.

Attack Method[edit | edit source]

You will need an open area away from other guards, if you want to go to the control room and take on the two there, a Makeshift Stun Gun will only take one hit but not Instant KO, until you hit one more then it is Instant KO. Armour is unnecessary but good for getting some kind of upper hand, it's very possible in an open area to defeat them with your fists but also very difficult without high strength.

When do they appear?[edit | edit source]

The Riot Guards appear only when the prison's security is at 5 stars, during a lockdown.

When a lockdown has not been initiated, they can be found in the Control Room.

Security Levels[edit | edit source]

  • 1 Star - More Guards
  • 2 Stars - Dogs are released
  • 3 Stars - Even More Guards
  • 4 Stars - More Dogs
  • 5 Stars - SWAT Team + Lock-Down (Just SWAT Team in Versus)
