Holding a screwdriver. June 3rd, 2016.

The screwdriver is a weapon in Yandere Simulator.


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 Yandere-chan's reputation will not be damaged if she is seen carrying one.

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