The U.S.S. Anomaly is one of the maps in The Escapists 2. Ten keys are needed to unlock this prison. It is the last and hardest prison in the game.

Description[edit | edit source]

Billed as an institution "designed to solve the problem of Earth’s overcrowded prisons", the Anomaly is the game's hardest-to-escape-from fortress that's packed with robotic guards, cameras, contraband detectors, and dogs, and is overseen by an AI warden. Luckily, the prison's space-age tech isn't exclusive to the establishment, as you'll have the chance to leverage jet packs and shuttles as you plan your interstellar escape.

Strategies / Ways to Escape[edit | edit source]

Race From Space[edit | edit source]

Gamemodes: Singleplayer only.

  • Increase your intellect to 60 (70 to upgrade the contraband pouch useful but not necessary).
  • You'll need to get the following
    • Screwdriver/Pickaxe or 2 Energy Modules
    • A Contraband Pouch
    • A Red Key
  • Obtain a Jetpack. You can obtain a Jetpack by doing the following:
    • Security Room (Easier): Find a screwdriver and head to the area above the East Maintenance Man's room. Place a desk underneath the vent and equip your screwdriver and unscrew the vent above that room and head east above the contraband room. Break that vent and go down to get Jetpack of desk, now leave.

Alternatively dig into the wall of the contraband room

    • Force Field: Go to the corner near the front of the Security Room BUT go north. Slip past the contraband detector and go upstairs where there is a desk guarded by a force field (which somehow cannot be deactivated with a shutdown generator). You have to head to the computer by the top right and disable it with the 2 Energy Modules. Then get the Jetpack.
  • Head all the way to the left (Where the dogs are at and contraband detectors behind Red doors. Go in there, head the farthest left that you can in that room, and then turn off the gravity).
  • Escape!
  • OR, just find a screwdriver or crowbar, get the jetpack, find guard number 3, steal his key and yolo through the sensors and security. Since the dogs take a few seconds to find contraband, you can escape within 3 in game hours.

Perimeter Breakout[edit | edit source]

Gamemodes: Singleplayer and Multiplayer.


  • Increase your intellect to 60 (50 if you would rather get 2 lightweight cutters)
  • You'll need to get the following:
    • Screwdriver
    • Sturdy Cutters (Or 2 lightweight cutters if you managed to get 2 for cheaper).
  • Head to the shower room, and below it should be a small medic room, then a room w/ a purple key. Head up to the top.
  • Head to the bottom fence and cut through it.
  • Head to the desk, and in the top left of the desk room should be a vent. Enter the vent with the screwdriver and then cut ALL of the fences until the end.
  • Exit the vent, and head up and out to the space ship.


METHOD 2: Speed running method.

  • Get 2 files
  • Get 1 screwdriver
  • Either raise intellect to 60 and get plastic Red Key or steal a key from guards (Rename the 3rd officer in the menu to "Red Key" since he has the red key)
  • Head to the maintenance room (to the right of the greenhouse entrance)
  • Move the desk to the middle to match the Vent.
  • Open the vent
  • Once you open the vent, go all the way east, than south and unscrew up.
  • Go up again and you'll be in a room
  • go north until the red Door.
  • Go through the red door and drop your key (if you didn't make a plastic one) (You do this so that the dogs do not find you)
  • go out the door, and with the 2 files, cut through the fence and make your escape
