The Quarry's true ending is a challenging one to unlock, requiring specific actions to be taken throughout the entirety of your playthrough. That's why we're here to guide you through it step by step. Here's our guide to unlocking The Quarry True Ending.

What Is the True Ending of The Quarry?

To clarify, The Quarry's true ending is more than getting every character through the night without dying. It also sees most every surviving character earn a happy ending, and requires you to do some extra leg work in addition to making all the correct choices.

To that end, we've laid out each step you'll need to take chapter by chapter, as well as how to get the specific items you'll need to trigger the happiest ending for the characters possible.

Before we get into it though, it's worth mentioning that there are some select QTEs you'll want to fail in order to avoid certain character deaths. We'll let you know exactly when they occur, so don't worry about being caught off guard.

Likewise, you'll need to find every Evidence collectible during this playthrough. While most aren't hard to find, a few can only be obtained through very specific methods or else you'll be locked out. We'll provide the info needed to track them down in this guide, but we also recommend using our dedicated Evidence Collectibles guide if you need additional info.
