All exits in Killer Klowns from Outer Space and how to find them

Get out before the Klownpocalypse.

Killer Klowns from Outer Space is the latest asymmetrical horror game to hit PC and consoles, and if you’ve played previous games in the genre like Friday the 13th or Dead by Daylight, then you know how important it is to learn the locations of the exits on each map.

The exit system works slightly differently in Killer Klowns from Outer Space and relies more on RNG than other similar games, but there are certain items and abilities that can tip the odds in your favor and help you escape those Killer Klowns with ease.

How to find exits in Killer Klowns from Outer Space

There are five exit types on each map in Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

  • Boat
  • Bomb Shelter
  • Gate
  • Portal
  • Ice Cream Truck

Even though there are five preset exit types in Killer Klowns from Outer Space, they always spawn in random locations on each map. There are multiple places where each of them can show up in each match, and it’s up to you to track them down. The boat may not always be at the same dock, for example, and the gated bridge that you escaped through in one match may not be accessible the next time around.

The only exception to this rule is the ice cream truck, which only appears right before the Klowns trigger a Klownpocalypse by hanging enough cocoons. The ice cream truck will crash through a random location on the outskirts of the map and open up a new exit for a very brief period, giving the final few survivors one last chance for a final escape.

How to locate exits in Killer Klowns from Outer Space

While each of the game’s exits appears in random locations, there are ways to locate them without stumbling around in the dark. Every match features a Meeting Point, a designated area that appears at the beginning of a round where survivors can group up together and find better gear. Arriving at a Meeting Point will mark the locations of each exit on your screen for a short period of time.

There’s also a very rare item that you can use to mark exits on your screen. If you manage to find a Compass during a match, hold onto it no matter what. It will permanently show you where each of the exits can be found, letting you plan your escape much more easily.

As a general rule of thumb, certain exits tend to appear more frequently in certain parts of the map. The boat and gated exit will always be located on the edge of the map, while the bomb shelter and portal can be found closer to the center of the map. Keep an eye out for big pink walls of cotton candy, too, as this means the Klowns have barricaded an exit that you can take.

All Escape Items in Killer Klowns from Outer Space

Each exit requires specific escape items to unlock or activate them, and these items spawn randomly throughout each map as well. You’ll need to loot every container you come across and hope you get lucky. There’s no guarantee where each one will end up, and you might find items for an exit all the way across the map. These are the items required for each exit.

  • Boat: Spark Plug and Gas
  • Gate: Key
  • Bomb Shelter: Keycard and Gas
  • Portal: Two Spark Plugs
  • Ice Cream Truck: Klownpocalypse

It’s a good idea to work with your fellow survivors and see which escape items other people have found so you can coordinate an exit plan with them. Each exit can accommodate multiple humans and the Klowns are easier to take down with a team, so grouping up is key to survival. After a few matches on each map, you’ll have a better idea of where to search for each exit, too.
