‘Friday the 13th The Game’: How To Start The Car

Friday the 13th: The Game

The campers have a lot of different ways they can escape in Friday the 13th: The Game. You can choose get out by foot, by car, by boat, or even by killing Jason.

Finding the car can be a hassle and you need to work with the rest of the campers if you’re going to be successful. First things first, you or someone need to locate the car you will be fixing up. If you have the map, the car will show up on it, which makes things easier, but usually you’ll have a camper that spawns near it.

You’re going to need a few more things after you find the car:

  1. Keys
  2. Battery
  3. Fuel

You can track all these things down by yourself but it will be a lot quicker, and safer, if you work as a team and collect all the parts together. These items will usually be found in nearby buildings so you won’t have to travel across the universe to get these parts. In some cases, you might and the car might not be the best option in that case.

The battery and fuel will be in plain sight so you won’t have to do much digging around to find those. The keys will be found in dresser drawers so you will need to do a lot of searching for those. If you are carrying the battery or the fuel, you will be defenseless as you can’t carry a weapon with those. This is where you have to rely on other campers to defend you. A skilled Tommy Jarvis is useful in these situations.

Once you have all the parts, you just have to add them to the car and you’re ready to go. Fixing the car starts up a quick-time event that requires you to press one of two buttons when prompted (R1 or L1 on PS4, RB or LB on Xbox One and the mouse buttons on PC). Every time you miss an input, it will take you longer to fix the vehicle and Jason will be able to sense what you’re doing if he’s close enough. You pretty much screwed if Jason finds you while you’re fixing the car so don’t mess up.

Escaping with the car is a whole different beast as Jason can just appear in front of you on road and smash down on the hood. Our best advice we can give is to pick up everyone you can, a total of four, and try to escape together. Worse case scenario is he stops the car but he likely won’t be able to get all four of you. Maybe you’ll have someone willing to sacrifice themselves for the greater good.
