How to Kill the Hackett Family in The Quarry

The Quarry is a new interactive horror title from Supermassive Games, considered the spiritual successor to 2015’s Until Dawn. Players control a group of youths residing at a camp known as Hackett’s Quarry as camp counselors when an inconceivable horror descends on them.

Much like Until Dawn, player choices in The Quarry shape their ending and who survives the night of horror. Among these figures are the enigmatic Hackett family, who own the camp and seem to have sinister motives.

It is possible to kill all family members if players wish, and it will reward them with an achievement/trophy as a result, well worth it for aspiring achievement hunters.

As a game with a branching narrative and a sequence of choices and consequences, players must meet the right requirements to complete their goal in The Quarry. To ensure that all of the teenagers survive the night, at least a few members of the Hackett family must be killed, but it is possible to kill them all while keeping the hard core of the protagonists alive.

This is explicitly requested by Eliza in-game, and players can see this by following the steps below. Please keep in mind that these steps are for spoilers in future chapters of The Quarry’s story, so players may want to return to these steps once they have completed the game.

  1. Kaylee – This particular death of Hackett is the easiest to complete in The Quarry. In Chapter 5, Laura will automatically shoot Kaylee regardless of the choices made. All players need to do is progress through the chapter to kill her, and they can then progress to the other members.
  2. constancy – In chapter 9, Constance will attack Laura in a very dark scene. Players need to make sure they win their Quick Events to defeat Constance. If successful, Laura will shoot Constance in the head, killing her instantly.
  3. Jedediah – Later in Chapter 9, after Constance’s death, players will have a choice. They have the option to attack Jedediah, and they must do so and pass the quick event that follows. If you do it right, Jedediah will be strangled to death.
  4. Chris, Bobby and Travis – These three Hacketts in The Quarry can be killed in succession. Once Ryan has been stabbed, take him out or stab Bobby with it when he’s encountered later. Either way, Chris will attack defenseless Bobby in his werewolf form. Players can then control Ryan and shoot Chris. If players failed the Chapter 7 quick event, where Laura snatches the gun from Travis, he would already be dead. However, if they are successful, he will stab Laura and approach Ryan, offering Ryan to shoot him. Players can choose not to shoot him here, and he will join Laura and Ryan later. Travis can still be killed later if players don’t shoot Silas near the end of the game. Silas will also kill Laura and Ryan, so players must weigh their options.
  5. Caleb: Method 1 – This Hackett can be killed two ways in The Quarry, depending on whether Travis teams up with Ryan and Laura. Players who don’t want to team up with Travis must grab the Silver Bullets from the Chapter 9 Storm Shelter while playing as Abi and Emma. When Kaitlyn flees Caleb in Chapter 10, she will find her way to Abi and Emma for help. Kaitlyn’s silver projectile will be placed under the door. Pick it up and shoot Caleb, which will kill him.
  6. Caleb: Method 2 – In Chapter 1 of The Quarry, as Abi, help Emma to enter the locked cabin. Once inside, head left to find a Stuffed Bunny. In Chapter 10, when controlling Kaitlyn, have her hide instead of heading towards Abi and Emma. As she runs into the kitchen, choose to head into the freezer. Select to use the decoy, and Caleb will charge next. Now when Silas is shot, the werewolf curse will be broken and Caleb will die inside the freezer due to the cold temperature.
