Recommended Areas

Underground areas are the best as they have lots of escape routes. You can either go upstairs or try to blend in, but be careful as the monster will catch on if you do it too much.

A dark skin can help you blend in better. If you fail a puzzle, just run away as fast as you can! That’s about it for the basics, it’s not too complicated.


To start off, I recommend getting at least one perk. It’ll make things a lot easier.


Being a leader means helping your teammates out when they’re injured. Try letting your team know you can heal them, and maybe they’ll come to you for help. It’s a cool idea, but I haven’t had anyone come to me yet.

Punching Bag

This perk makes it easier to escape if the monster finds you and is good at hunting. However, it’s not very useful against Boxy Boo. I would only use this perk if you can’t afford a better one or if you’re having trouble escaping from the monster.

Leave No Trace

This perk is another good option for escaping from the monster, especially if you’re dealing with Boxy Boo or a skilled hunter. It makes your footsteps invisible, which makes it harder for them to track you down. I definitely recommend using this perk.

Shadow Walker

I also recommend this perk. In fact, I think it’s essential for the Sewer Rat playstyle. Your footsteps are pretty loud, and this perk can help you stay hidden.

Rolly Polly

I haven’t tried this one yet, but it seems like it could be a really good escape perk if it’s upgraded. Otherwise, it’s just okay. I’ll update this once I’ve had a chance to try it out.

Distant savior

This perk is similar to Rolly Polly in that I haven’t tested it yet, but it seems like it would be a really useful support perk. You could use it to quickly pop up and save your teammates.

Sewer Rat Tactics

Here are some additional strategies for the Sewer Rat playstyle:

  • Maintain Situational Awareness: Keep an eye on the monster and potential escape routes at all times.
  • Use Sound: Use the monster’s footsteps and noises to anticipate its movements.
  • Stay Under the Radar: Avoid drawing attention to yourself by making unnecessary noise or staying in open areas.
  • Work Together with Your Team: Communicate with your teammates to coordinate actions and increase survival chances.

The Sewer Rat specialist is a fun and challenging playstyle that rewards stealth and evasion. By following the tips in this guide, you can become a master Sewer Rat in Project Playtime and help your team survive the horrors.
