Friday the 13th Quick Tips

  • Running as a counselor will make it easier for Jason to find you.
  • Don’t try to fight Jason unless you have a weapon that will stun easily such as the bat.
  • Immediately look for the parts you need to fix the car, boat or phone so you can escape.
  • Fixing the phone is the easiest way out because you only need to find the fuse once you’ve located the phone.
  • Search through drawers inside buildings to find the walkie-talkie, map, first aid spray and other useful items.
  • As Jason, don’t worry about cinematic kills. Just score the kill as quickly as possible so you can move on to the next victim.
  • Use the Morph ability as Jason to quickly move around the map and hunt your prey.
