Saving Shaun? [SPOILERS]

posted by izzywozzy on - last edited - Viewed by 7.8K users

Hey, I've only done one playthrough of the game, and I decided to save Duck!
I was wondering what the plot's like if you had saved Shaun, and what about the whole "He's bitten!" thing with Larry at the drugstore?

Thanks!

    I'm not joking, NOTHING changes on this one decision. Shaun actually dies and Duck lives regardless. If you attempt to save Shaun, you either choose to fight the zombies(and fail) or try to pull him out of the tractor(and fail) and shaun die s. Meanwhile Kenny goes off to save Duck and succeeds.

    I personally hate this part of the game as it goes against the "your choices matter" part, but so far telltale has only pulled that BS once and the rest of the decisions actually do crap.

    Does Hershel thank you or anything? And I'm guessing Kenny ends up saving Duck.

    Yeah, Kenny saves Duck. Hershal still goes nuts and kicks you out. He says "you tried to save my son, I see that, but" and then kicks you out anyway. After that, nothing really changes. Kind of sucks, but so far that's the only time its happened.

  • I wish the scene would have been a little different if you chose to save Shaun. We know he is supposed to die from the comics. It should have let you "save" Shaun, but he still gets bit. Then have Lee and Kenny leave thinking Shaun was ok. It sounds like Lee and Kenny didn't know a bite kills you til you got to the drug store and Larry thought Duck was bitten.

    Would have been cool for an extra bit - maybe you could only get this scene if you chose to save Shawn by hitting the walkers away from him, giving him enough time for Herschel to come out and shoot the Walkers.

  • It's outcome has to do with Kenny's trust/faith in your leadership.

    That seems to be the prevalent outcome of each of our choices. The story isn't affected so much as the characters and their relationships with one another.

    That wouldn't change we still wouldn't try to save Duck.

    nope no matter how quick you are same thing happens..

    No, I ignored Duck in every way possible during that scene and Kenny still trusted me like I was his best friend.

    Until I said that beating an old man to death with a salt lick is a bad idea oh NOOO that gets him hating you.
