Kill all advisors on the run.

Each of the characters may meet their fate in different ways, and sometimes the preparations for their demise will take several chapters before everything falls into place. As a general rule of thumb, when it comes to dialogue options, choose to be mean, antagonistic, or lie when it’s obvious the other person knows the truth, which ensures that tensions run high and nerves fray.

If you want the clearest path to a bloody night, here are the specific chapters where you can kill the advisors at the beginning of the story.

Chapter 4


Shortly after starting this chapter, players will take control of Ryan at Campfire. With everyone on edge, there will be noises in the bushes and Ryan will get a chance to shoot. He takes aim and shoots both times into the bushes. Instead of an animal or a monster, he will kill Jacob and leave him in a bloody mess.


As for Emma, ​​once you control her on the island, choose the dirt path or take the stairs. In any case, you will reach a tree house, where there will be a trapdoor and some bags. Despite the scary noises, choose to open the hatch first and the monster trapped above will rip it apart.

Chapter 6


Once in the pool after saving Nick from the water, the conversation between the would-be lovers takes a turn for the worse and Nick throws Abigail against the wall as she becomes more infected. Now, armed with the shotgun, don’t shoot Nick and let him attack, and Abigail will meet her death here.

Chapter 7


Be sure to follow these decisions to stage Laura and Ryan’s deaths later. Once you have control of Laura at the police station, don’t walk and go back to bed immediately, choosing to go to bed. The next day, Laura will fake an injury to lure Travis into the cell, where he will present himself with the opportunity to grab his gun. She does, but misses the QTE to shoot him, and she’ll leave Travis in the cell wounded but not dead, and seeking revenge.

Chapter 8


Once you make your way to Hackett’s house and drop into the mines, you will eventually reach a red lit area as Laura and Ryan. Here you will find Nick trapped in the cage and Laura will point her shotgun at the monster. Don’t interrupt him and Nick will be shot.

Chapter 8


At the junkyard, Dylan will ride the tow truck in an attempt to find the right car part. However, a monster will attack and you will have to make the following decisions. First, he warns Kaitlyn, then chooses to honk the horn to scare the monster away. However, if you fail the QTE, the monster will break the windshield and kill Dylan.

Chapter 9


We’re almost done with all the advisors and now it’s Ryan’s turn. Along with Laura, you will find a chained monster in the attic before falling to the ground. The monster will then attack, with Ryan grabbing the shotgun. He chooses to shoot the monster, but Travis will stab Laura and then attack Ryan. Choose the Aggressive option, then fail the QTE. This will cause the shotgun to fire at Ryan’s face.


Just before Ryan’s death, Travis gets revenge on Laura for leaving him in the cell for dead and stabs her to death once Ryan shoots the monster. If you somehow made the decision not to leave Travis for dead, the pair will work together in Chapter 10, where there is one more chance to kill Laura by having him not kill the creature during the final scene. Travis will then kill Laura.

Chapter 10


With the monster killed by Ryan, this lifts the curse on Max, who now finds himself alone on the island. Walk to the end of the island and you will have to make a decision: either stay on the island or try to swim to shore. Choose the last option and Max will reach the shore on the other side. Here, a monster will immediately attack him and bite him in the neck, killing Max.


Last one standing, it’s time for Kaitlyn to meet her end. In the lodge, when the monster attacks, she chooses to wait and not run for the first option, and don’t shoot the monster. This will give the creature a chance to grab Kaitlyn and smash her into the ground several times before devouring her.

That’s all there is to know on how to get the bad ending and kill all the councilmen in The Quarry. Note that not all Hacketts have to die, and following this tutorial will keep some of them alive. Now that you’ve managed to spark the bloodiest night of Hackett’s career, you may want to try the opposite. Trying to keep all the advisors alive can be tricky, but it’s not impossible if you take note of a few things.
