How to Unlock ‘The Final Girl’ Trophy/Achievement in The Quarry

The “Final Girl” trophy/achievement in The Quarry requires that only Kaitlyn survive from the main cast. For this to happen, the player must kill all other characters. Failing QTEs and making specific choices can do this easily, but ensuring Kaitlyn’s survival is a little trickier. Here’s how to unlock the ‘Final Girl’ trophy/achievement in The Quarry.

How to Keep Only Kaitlyn Alive

When playing as Kaitlyn, they must do everything they can to protect her. Ryan and Laura must also survive long enough to kill Chris Hackett so that Max can be led to his death.

Get the Doll in Chapter One

During the first chapter, players must get Abi and Emma into the cabin so Abi can examine the doll. Players must then keep the doll as it will be the only thing that can save Kaitlyn in Chapter Ten.

Kill Jacob

Jacob can die in two ways, the first being getting shot by Ryan in Chapter Four. To do this, players must shoot trees after Ryan saves Nick, then insist. When given the chance to shoot again, Ryan must wait until the timer runs out until the very end and shoot the trees again. If done right, it will kill Jacob.

The second method is to wait for Jacob to run away during Chapter Six. This forces players to either fail the Don’t Breathe event or run until Jacob enters the bear trap. Choosing to retreat and failing QTEs will sustain him long enough to be killed.

Kill Emma

When playing as Emma in Chapter Four, players can have her killed by opening the hatch instead of searching the bag. This will result in his death instantly. Alternatively, if Emma escapes but is bitten, players will be able to shoot Emma as Kaitlyn once she is freed from the car in Chapter Eight. She will be a werewolf and players can then choose to use silver shells to then kill her.

Kill Abigail

During Chapter Six, players will be able to get Abigail killed by simply not shooting Nick. When given the opportunity to shoot Nick, players can simply time out and Abigail will be decapitated by Nick before running away. Abigail can be killed later, however, this requires Emma to survive, invalidating the “Final Girl” requirements.

Kill Laura

Laura’s death hinges on her shooting Travis in Chapter Seven. When given the option to pick up Travis’ gun, players must use it to escape and not apologize when leaving. . This will cause Travis to kill Laura in Chapter Nine.

Kill Nick

In Chapter Eight, while Laura and Ryan investigate the Red Room with cages, Laura will attempt to shoot the werewolf. Ryan has the option to interrupt but the players have to let Laura kill Nick.

Kill Dylan

There are two ways Dylan can die and both happen while accompanying Kaitlyn. Playing as Dylan during Chapter Nine will eventually result in players being chased through the junkyard. When given the choice, Dylan must honk his horn and get the werewolf’s attention. If you fail all of the following QTEs, Dylan will be devoured while Kaitlyn can escape.

The second method to kill Dylan is to keep him alive until chapter ten when looking for a vantage point. Once the cabin is broken into, Kaitlyn can choose to run or wait. Choosing to wait will result in Dylan’s death as Kaitlyn shoots the werewolf and then flees.

Kill Laura

As long as players shot Travis in Chapter Seven, Laura will automatically be killed after Ryan kills Chris Hackett. The choice to bite Ryan won’t matter as long as he’s able to shoot Chris. If players fail to shoot Chris Hackett, then Max will remain a werewolf and wake up alive. This will then void the Trophy/Achievement.

Alternatively, players can have Laura, Ryan, and Travis work until the end of the game if she didn’t shoot Travis in Chapter Seven. Choosing not to raise the gun will upset Travis, causing him to try to take the gun to Laura. Passing the QTE will cause Travis to travel, giving players the option to shoot Travis. This will alert Silas and if neither Laura nor Ryan have werewolf blood on their faces, Silas will kill them both.

Ryan’s death hinges on Travis killing Laura. After being stabbed to death by the silver mirror, players must choose to be aggressive, causing Ryan and Travis to fight over the weapon. If the QTEs fail from here, Travis will kill Ryan in retaliation.

Alternatively, if Ryan didn’t agree to being bitten, he will die of his knife wounds shortly after killing Chris. If Laura is alive, then she may die later in Chapter Ten after killing Travis but refusing to shoot Silas.

Kill Max

As long as Chris Hackett is killed, players will start Chapter Ten playing as Max. When given the choice to stay or swim to shore, Max must swim to shore to be killed by a werewolf.

Keeping Kaitlyn Alive

In order for players to keep Kaitlyn alive, they must make sure to interact with the doll that is in the kitchen during Chapter Ten. Without it, players will die regardless of their choices. After interacting with the doll, players can carry on as normal until the werewolf bursts in.

Players can then run or hide and Kaitlyn will eventually head for the kitchen. When given the choice to run or go to the freezer, she must open the freezer. Then, as long as she interacts with the doll, she will have the ability to use the doll as a decoy. Kaitlyn will lock the werewolf in the freezer and run away. Players will then earn the Final Girl Trophy/Achievement once the credits start rolling.
