    This is prisons is pretty easy to escape from in the Classic Prison category. There are multiple unique escape methods for each level but I'll outline the 1 I feel is the fastest and easiest for this level. It requires a bunch of items but isn't too challenging to obtain them or time consuming.

    CAN BE DONE in local or online multiplayer.

    2nD Player will not get the achievement. I know what you're thinking.... find a person with a save file right before the escape and I can join their game and get the achievement right?!?! WRONG! laugh

    NOTE - That if you decide to play / collect the items needed for escape in multiplayer the 2nd player will have to quit out right before the escape as this is a single player escape method.


    - Intellect 60
    - Jet Pack
    - Guard Uniform*
    - X1 Talcum Powder (Common Item found in Desks)
    - X1 Toothpaste (Common Item found in Desks)
    - X1 Lighter (Common Item found in Desks)
    - X1 Plastic Item (Comb or Toothbrush

    *Guard Uniforms are either:
    1. Lootable from Guards Body
    2. Craftable by combining Infirmary Clothes with Ink, Infirmary Clothes are in turn craftable by combining Inmate Clothes with Bleach


    The 1 items will be crafting for our escape from these listed is:
    1. Plastic Red Key

    Start off by accumulating all the uncommon and common items and increasing your stats especially making sure to get the Intellect up to 60. Once you've done that Combine x1 Talcum Powder with x1 Toothpaste to get x1 Wad of Putty. Combine x1 Lighter with x1 Plastic Item to get Melted Plastic. This IS a contraband item so be sure to hide them in your desk hiding spot with cn_X

    Now we've got the Wad of Putty and Melted Plastic done. Find a guard uniform by either method and store it in your hiding spot of your desk again. Lose all your heat including stars by following the rules until they're gone. Now time to escape! Equip your Guard Uniform and have in your inventory the Plastic Red Key. Make sure not to go through any Contraband Metal Detectors and head to the right of your Cell Blocks to the Contraband Room. This is marked on your map with the STAR symbol and has two guards in it. Use your Plastic Red Key to get in while your uniform is on! Grab the desk and the JetPack inside it! Now head to the far left of your cell block to the chest looking symbol on the map WARDEN'S OFFICE. Be sure to avoid any contraband metal detectors again on the way. Once you use the Plastic Red Key again on the lower left of the screen drop it next to the door so that the upcoming dogs don't smell ya! Now walk past the dogs and the guard and head into the Warden's Office. Press the button on the wall with the JetPack equipped and you've ESCAPED!!!!

    thanatos8285I'm not sure it's necessary to drop the key, I did that and the contraband alarm still went off, I assume due to the jetpack. I was still able to run to the button and finish the level so it was fine, I'm just not sure it would have made much of a difference if I had the key.

    Found a wonderfull site. If you don't know The Escapists Wikia, here it is:

    There you can know all escape possibilities, solo or co-op. There are 3 ways to escape U.S.S Anomaly. Number 1 and 2 are solo. Number 3 only co-op.

    All the text below is copy paste from the website! I take no credit!

    This is a SINGLE-PLAYER ONLY escape.
    - First get your intelligence to 60 (70 to upgrade the contraband pouch useful but not necessary).
    - Next, you'll need to get 4 items : A Plastic Red Key, A Contraband Pouch, A Guard Costume OR 2 Energy Modules, and A Jet pack.
    - No matter if you got the Guard's Outfit or 2 Energy, head to the area where 2 Red Double doors meet.
    - If you got the Guard's Outfit, head to the contraband desk in the SWAT or Special OPS room.
    - If you got the 2 Energy Modules, head up towards the guards room. Go up the stairs and there will be a desk guarded by a force field. You have to head to the computer by the top right and disable it with the 2 Energy Modules. Then get the Jet pack.
    - Finally, 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.
    - Good Job! You escaped via the longest way and the most dangerous way! Hats off to you!

    This is a SINGLE-PLAYER ONLY escape.
    - First get your intelligence to 60 UNLESS you get 2 lightweight cutter.
    - Next you'll need to get following items - A Screwdriver and A Sturdy Cutter (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. Then 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. You then exit the vent (last tile), and head up and out to the space ship.
    - Congratulations! You escaped!

    This is a MULTIPLAYER ONLY escape.
    - First, get your intelligence to 60 or partner (70 if you want to get Energy Sword)
    - Then you need to acquire the following items in order to escape - An Energy Module (2 Batteries and 1 Wire), A Medical Mesh (Easiest to get from Medic Desk), and An Oxygen Tank.
    - Once you got the items, head to the top of the cafe, there should be double doors, just follow the path to the Multiplayer doors.
    - Then you need to insert the items into the pod near the top on the right (You should see the ESCAPE button).
    - Congratulations! You escaped one of the hardest prisons via multiplayer!
