Introduced in Island Bound DLC, checkpoint allows guard working on it to perform pat-down searches on prisoners who pass through it.

That where you decide to set them up should be carefully thought out because checkpoints allow only for one way movement (when manned by guards) and using two each way may be required. They can also cause congestion and significantly slow down the speed at which prisoners travel.

Prisoners don't like being searched, so similarly to the metal detectors, they will avoid going through them by picking another way around (if possible), especially if they carry contraband.

Efficiency of pat-down searches depends on tiredness of the guard performing them so having them well rested is important.


  • Very crowded checkpoints can result in some of the prisoners being able to pass through without being searched.
