The Quarry Blood Pact: How To Infect Every Character

The following guide will show you how to acquire the blood pact achievement and how to infect every character in The Quarry.

Blood Pact is an achievement in The Quarry that requires you to infect all nine playable characters during a single playthrough, which is not an easy task at all.

You will probably need to do multiple playthroughs through Chapter Select because the Rough Night achievement requires you to save all characters.

The way to infect someone is to have them get mauled or bitten by the monster. If the right choices are made during a particular sequence of events, every character in the game will find themselves in the waiting claws of the monster.

The following guide will show you what those choices are and how to infect every character in The Quarry.

How To Infect Every Character In The Quarry

Take note that there are three characters who you will not need to infect. Laura, Max, and Nick will get infected automatically as the narrative unfolds.

Sadly, there is no way to stop Max, Nick, or Laura from contracting the disease. Players might want to know how these characters get infected, so here is a brief overview :

  • While Max is investigating the Storm Shelter, Chris, a werewolf, bites him.
  • Abigail will flee into the woods after the scene takes place by the fire pit. Nick is ambushed by Silas not long after he catches up to Abigail.
  • When Laura returns to The Island after killing Kaylee in Chapter 7, Max bites her.

Below are the rest of the characters who you need to infect to unlock the Blood Pact achievement in The Quarry.

Chapter 3: Abigail

You need to help Nick survive a monster attack in Chapter 3 to infect Abigail.

When you see Nick under attack, help him to get away. This will have the monster come at you next. Here, just get the monster off and run away from that place.

Now, keep on running, press R-Up, and get through the Smash event. You will arrive at a point where you stop next to a tree. Make sure that you do not climb the tree. You just need to fail the Hold Breath event to get Abigail infected.

Chapter 4: Emma

While searching for a bag in Chapter 4, the monster falls from above. You must use the taser against him and then take his photo.

Now run away, press R-Down, and go through the Smash event. Now, you will again come across the monster, so press R-Up two times and spray him.

Press R-Down, and block the door while the monster tries to get inside the hut. You will have to use the trapdoor as there is no way out.

When the monster gets inside the hut, fail the second QTE and press R-Right. Now, fail the Smash event and press R-Up while you are struggling with the monster. This will be enough to infect Emma.

Chapter 5: Dylan

Dylan will be required to grab a cable that the werewolf cut when he is stuck in the Radio Hut during Chapter 5. Dylan’s hand will get bit when he reaches for the roof.

Ryan will therefore have the choice to amputate Dylan’s hand to stop the illness from spreading. Choose frightened to watch Ryan refuse to take Dylan’s hand away, allowing the virus to spread.

Chapter 6: Jacob

Players only get one opportunity to infect Jacob, just like Abigail. It can only be completed with a failed quick time event and is in Chapter 6. It is not advisable to avoid the werewolf’s initial assault on Jacob.

Jacob will get bitten in the neck if the attempt is successful and he becomes sick. Players must take caution because there are numerous ways for Jacob to perish in a single scene.

You must make sure that you throw dirt at the monster in Chapter 3 as Jacob. That will help you get him infected later on.

In Chapter 6, fail the first QTE while fighting the monster. Now, run and go through the Smash event. You will then come across a point where you get injured because of the blades emerging from the ground. At this point, go for Pry Open instead of Pull Free to get Jacob infected.

Chapter 9: Ryan

In Chapter 9, choose the Sympathetic option. You should accept the offer when you are asked to fix your injured arm. Now, do not pull away when the girl attempts to approach your arm. This will get Ryan infected.

Ryan can pass away in three different ways in Chapter 9. When the opportunity arises, shoot Chris, and if Ryan and Travis end up fighting, shoot Travis. Of course, if Laura does not bite him, he will bleed to death.

Chapter 9: Kaitlyn

Kaitlyn can be infected in Chapter 9 as well. She will try to sit in the car that fell from above. At this point, you should choose the path to Warn Kaitlyn instead of Car Lift and R-Up.

Next, you should Slam the Car instead of choosing the Sound Horn. Kaitlyn will fall from the car, and monster will attack again. Now, you must fail the QTE to get Kaitlyn infected.

After infecting all of these characters, you will unlock the Blood Pact achievement in The Quarry.
