Holding a screwdriver. June 3rd, 2016.

The screwdriver is a weapon in Yandere Simulator.


In the game, the screwdriver was found by the school entrance for debugging purposes, but was moved to the Science Club in the November 15th, 2016 build.[1]

The screwdriver can be concealed and is not seen as suspicious, so the player's reputation will not be damaged if they are seen carrying one.

The screwdriver can be used to electrocute a rival and to disable metal detectors in Mission Mode.
