Finding out which guard has which key

From The Escapists Wiki

When naming your guards, note down the names of the first five guards. The first five guards always have the same keys:

Guard 1 has the Cell Key

Guard 2 has the Utility Key

Guard 3 has the Entrance Key

Guard 4 has the Staff Key

Guard 5 has the Work Key

All the other guards will not be carrying any keys.


  • A way to identify the guard who is carrying the respective keys is to rename the guard to the color of the key the guard is holding.

This is stored in the savegame, so it should stay the same on current savegames.
