Venture to the Vile – How to Get Jail Bird Achievement

Jail Bird Achievement Guide

You need to wear the Prisoner’s Garb all the time. Don’t take it off, even for a short time. You won’t get the achievement if you:

  • Start Act 2 without it
  • Leave the tailor without it
  • Beat main bosses without it
  • Finish the game without it

General Tips

The Prisoner’s Garb makes you take more damage. To make it easier:

  • Upgrade claw weapon damage
  • Upgrade health with vile currency
  • Get tonic ingredients you see
  • Rest at every camp
  • Find Rachel in the Sewers for more tonics
  • Use Snake’s shop for materials if needed

You can use the option for double health, but turn it off before upgrading health.

Being a big gaming fan, I believe that I have a lot to share with other gamers. I got my first official job in the game industry in 2005 and continue to develop there.

I love playing on PC, but my main love for me will always be Xbox. Anyway, it's complicated and simple at the same time. After all, I'm back in the days of the ZX Spectrum (1994)…
