Gang Leaders[edit]

  • Sometimes a Legendary prisoner who arrives through Intake will also be a gang leader.
  • They will immediately assume control of their gang, and will establish a leadership hierarchy.
  • Can promote gang members into Lieutenants, up to a maximum of 1 lieutenant per 10 soldiers.
  • Can recruit non gang members into the gang. (Must visit the prisoner first)

Gang Members[edit]

  • Are fiercely loyal to their leaders
  • They will become angry (temperature increase) if their leader is being punished in Solitary or Lockdown
  • If a gang leader is killed, the entire gang will immediately try to start a riot

Gang Territory[edit]

Gang Territory Capture[edit]

  • Gangs will attempt to take control of key areas of your prison.
  • The attempt is called a 'Play', and is led by a Lieutenant.
  • He will gather a group of gang members together and give them instructions.
  • The soldiers will then proceed to the zone in question, and assert their authority over that zone.
  • If they are unchallenged, the territory will turn their colour and they will have ownership of it.
  • The player cannot build or change room setups within gang territory

Captured Territory[edit]

  • Once captured, territory shows up in the Gangs view as the colour of the gang who has claimed it
  • Rival gang members are not permitted into the territory
  • Non gang members can enter the territory and use the facilities (e.g. Phones), but must pay Protection Money to the gang
  • Gangs accumulate money from non gang members this way, and will use the money to buy equipment such as stolen weapons
  • From time to time a lieutenant will arrange a 'Play' to revisit the territory with a group of soldiers, as a show of force.

Contested Territories[edit]

  • Sometimes a gang will be strong enough to take a territory from a rival gang.
  • They will only attempt this if they have sufficient numerical advantage.
  • A lieutenant will arrange a Play and will send enough soldiers to take the territory by force.


  • Once a gang has claimed a territory, they must be Evicted to remove their influence.
  • Click on the EVICT button in the gang view to begin this process.
  • Any gang members within the territory will immediately turn hostile.
  • Nearby gang lieutenants will arrange new 'Plays' in an attempt to re-capture their territory from your guards.
  • Once you have defended the territory for 24 hours, the ownership reverts to 'Unclaimed'.

Securing a territory[edit]

  • With enough guards, you can protect a territory against any gang control.
Nb this can only be done with an unclaimed territory - any gangs must be evicted first.

Security Rooms[edit]

  • Security rooms also count as territory, and are automatically guard controlled.
  • Guards can project their power from security rooms to any neighbouring territory.
E.g. a security room with 10 guards inside will 'project' 10 guards onto all neighbouring yards, common rooms etc.
Nb. 'Neighbouring' means there must be a door between the security room and the yard/common room.

Contraband trading[edit]

  • All prisoners can now trade their stolen contraband with other prisoners for money.
  • Prisoners will sell items they don't particularly want, and use that money at the shop or to buy other items from other prisoners.
  • The price of any item is based on the supply and demand of that item within the prison.
  • The approximate trade prices of all items can now be seen in the Intelligence / Dangers view.


Ranged Weapon Accuracy[edit]

  • All ranged weapons have had their accuracy nerved (previously 100% for anyone).
  • Tazers: 60% accuracy
  • Tazers used by Armed guards: 70% accuracy
  • All other ranged weapons: 70% accuracy
  • All other ranged weapons used by Armed guards: 90%


The following rooms now all require Prison Labour to be unlocked:

  • Shop
  • Library
  • Mail Room


  • Additional Contraband can now be stolen from the following rooms:
  • Forestry : Saw / Axe / Spade


  • Guard deployment screen now uses same layout engine as Jobs
