Chapter 6: Five Hours Until Dawn (Matt and Emily)

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Until Dawn

(Death flag!!)

Butterfly Effect: In Self Defense
Matt walks calmly through the herd
Matt attacks the caribou

You'll continue off where Matt and Emily were surrounded by caribou near the edge of the cliff. You'll have the option to hit one of them or not. The best choice is of course leaving them alone. If you did hit them, Matt will be pushed off the cliff. You need to press the QTEs correctly; otherwise he'll fall off and die. Tell Emily to calm down and walk towards the herd. When you get the prompt to hit the deer, ignore it and you'll get through this sequence fairly easily.

Next, you'll be controlling Emily. Continue along the trail until you reach the base of the fire tower. Once you trip the motion sensor and activate the security light, don't go upstairs yet. There's a totem by the bench to the left. (Guidance Totem #6) After viewing it, continue upstairs.

There are no immediate items of interest here so just climb the ladders until you reach the top of the tower. First, open the locker nearby to find Hannah's Missing Poster. (Twins Clue #11) Next, examine the radio then open the door and head outside. Find the nearby fuse box and interact with it to restore power to the tower. However, don't go back inside yet.

Butterfly Effect: Who Gets the Gun
Emily gives the flare gun to Matt
Emily keeps the flare gun

Though I tagged this as a death flag, the actual death scene will not occur this chapter. However, your decisions during this particular butterfly effect will play a great role in the later chapters. This is a very important choice as the flare gun itself can determine the survival of either Matt or Emily. Kindly check this Butterfly effect's page to learn more about the decision branches and their effects.

After deciding who keeps the gun (or whether using it or not), return back inside and activate the printer to get Beth's Poster as another clue. (Twins Clue #12)

Once done, interact with the radio and you'll have two sets of choices. Just select Comply and Inform. After that, the tower will collapse and you'll have to watch out for a QTE instance.

Butterfly Effect:Save Yourself
Save Emily
Jump to Safety

During the tower collapse, you'll be given an option to Save Emily or Jump to Safety. You can attempt to save her once and you'll get the second and last chance to continue attempting to save her or jump to Save Yourself. Do not attempt to save Emily twice if Matt doesn't have the flare gun. He'll get killed by the wendigo in the mines later on. If Emily has the flare gun, and you still want Matt to survive, just jump to safety so that he won't encounter the Wendigo anymore.

After making your decision, the control will switch over to Ash and Chris back in the lodge.
