The Hostage: 100 Percent Completion

The Hostage: All Endings

Connor Failed to Reach Deviant in Time
This ending is possible if Be Honest with Deviant or Fail to Build Trust take place. These two are heavily dependent on the conversational choices made, so gathering lots of evidence before going outside is ideal. Take a sympathetic or understanding approach to avoid this ending and blame Daniel and disagree as often as possible to get it to unlock. Connor will have one last shot to run to Daniel and Emma to try and save her, but if the QTE (quick time event) is missed, this ending will unlock.

Connor Leapt for Emma and Fell
This ending is unlocked if the Be Honest with Deviant or Fail to Build Trust branches are unlocked. Luckily, if Connor can Get Close Enough (simply walk toward the deviant when outside) during negotiations, he’ll have the chance to run to Emma before she falls. Passing the QTE here is what unlocks this specific ending.

Snipers Shot Deviant
This ending is unlocked by raising the mission success meter to 100 percent. Before going outside, going into Emma’s bedroom and unlocking Learn Deviant’s Name is the minimum that must be done to achieve this ending. Once outside, be sure to reassure Daniel and ask him to trust Conner over and over. Dismiss the helicopter when asked. He will release Emma once the meter hits 100 percent and this ending will be unlocked.

Connor Died Protecting Emma
This is one of the easier endings to unlock. It requires only that Conner Get Close Enough. Once outside, move forward as far as possible until Connor can no longer progress. No matter how negotiations go everything should eventually bottleneck into a single choice where Connor can choose Sacrifice Self. That will unlock this unique ending.

Deviant Shot Connor
Connor must have investigated the dead officer’s body inside and found the gun under the table for this to be possible. Once outside lie about having the gun, then move forward until Connor is as close to Daniel as he can get. When the option comes up, choose to use the gun, but do not shoot. The Intimidate option is best here. Continue to threaten Daniel but never shoot and eventually he’ll shoot Connor.

Connor Shot Deviant
Connor must find the cop’s body inside and construct what happened to find the gun under the table. Take the gun, then lie to Daniel about it while moving forward on the roof until Connor is as close as he can get. Eventually the option will show up to use the gun, take it, but choose to shoot Daniel instead of intimidating him. That will unlock this ending.

With The Hostage 100 percent complete and all endings unlocked, players will proceed to the chapter called Opening. For even more choices and endings, check out our Detroit: Become Human 100 percent walkthrough for the best outcomes in each chapter.
