How to Fix a Car in Friday the 13th: The Game
The best way to fix a car in Friday the 13th: The Game is to work together with the other Counselors. Fixing a car requires a few items, and by having more people looking for these items, you will be able to speed up your escape. To repair a car in Friday the 13th: The Game, you'll need to find three items:
- Car Keys
- A Car Battery
- A Gas Can
Keep your eyes open for a car key, a car battery, and a jerry can full of gas. These three items are vital for fixing a car. You can only carry one large item at a time, so if you have a weapon in your hand, you will drop it if you want to pick up the gas or battery. The car key will slip into one of your three inventory slots.
Take the gas, battery, and car key back to the car. Insert the battery into the hood, and the gas into the side of the car. Once these are finished, you can get in and use the keys to start the engine.
Each of the steps in fixing the car requires you to complete a mini-game. The mini-game is rather simple: a circle appears and a bar ticks around it like a clock. At each section, you need to press a button to continue repairing. Do this without missing a button-press and the circle will complete, fixing the car. However, if you miss a button press, the bar will jump back, alerting Jason.
The only part that doesn’t have its own mini-game is when you use the key. You simply need to get into the driver’s seat with the key and hold the interact button (E key on PC) until the car starts.
After all the components are in the car and all the mini-games are completed, you will have successfully fixed and repaired a car in Friday the 13th: The Game. Now all you need to do is drive along the road and head to the exit. Keep an eye out for Jason as you escape from camp.
