Man of Medan Endings Guide: How to Unlock Best and Worst Endings

The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan Endings

The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan is heavy on choices where a small misstep can alter the course of your characters’ fate. Depending on your choices, you can unlock a few different endings and final cutscenes in the Man of Medan. Let’s talk about all these endings and decisions you need to make to unlock them in Supermassive’s The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan Endings

Since we’re talking about endings, it’s needless to say but the guide is full of spoilers. Just a little heads-up. It’s also a good practice to manually save your progress before each chapter. This way, if you’re chasing a specific ending in Man of Medan, you’ll be able to go back and restart if you ended up making a bad decision.

Below is a brief Man of Medan walkthrough that will help you unlock all the endings:

Everyone Survives (Best Ending)
To unlock this ending, you need to make sure that no one dies during the QTEs. Some of the pointers to keep in mind include:

  1. Developing the relationship of Alex and Julia (find the ring on Danny’s body)
  2. No one having any weapons to avoid killing anyone accidentally
  3. Conrad not escaping
  4. Find as many clues as you can to avoid hallucinating
  5. Keeping Junior calm at all times (Rebreather comes in handy)
  6. Keeping the distributor cap intact by snatching it away from Olson (don’t let the rats get to Alex)
  7. Running away from Olson during the final scene
  8. Didn’t tell anything to the military over the radio

Everyone Survives, Thanks to Conrad (Good Ending)
To unlock this ending, you need to let Conrad escape and let the distributor cap be destroyed. Every other choice mentioned under the “Best Ending” still applies here.

Everyone Survives, Conrad Starts Hallucinating (Okay-ish Ending, Maybe)
For this ending, you need to change things a little bit. These things include:

  1. Conrad escapes using the boat
  2. You managed to keep the distributor cap alive

No Rescue (Bad Ending)
This ending sees all your characters stranded on the Outrang Medan ship and give in to their fears before eventually dying of hunger and thirst. To get this ending, you need to:

  1. Make sure Conrad doesn’t escape
  2. Don’t give your coordinates or share any sort of info. to the military
  3. Let the distributor cap be destroyed so you’ve no way of escaping
  4. Don’t talk to the outside world

Everyone is Imprisoned (Bad Ending)
To get the ending where the military arrives but everyone ends up being imprisoned by the military, you need to make sure that you make the following choices:

  1. Conrad fails to escape early in the game
  2. You didn’t collect enough clues to know the ship’s name or you didn’t tell it to the military
  3. You ignored the generator
  4. You shared your coordinates with the military
  5. You let the distributor cap be destroyed

Everyone Dies of Military Execution (Worst Ending)
This is the ending in which you managed to keep everyone alive for the “Best Ending” but one misstep will cause everyone to be brutally executed by the military. To get this ending, you need to make the following decisions:

  1. Conrad never escaped
  2. The distributed cap was destroyed
  3. You gathered all the clues to know the ship’s name (SS Ourang Medan) and mentioned it to the military
  4. If you didn’t, use the generator to start the radio again and someone else will say it

Olson and Danny are Revived (Head Scratcher Ending)
I don’t exactly know how to trigger this but my best guess is to make sure everyone dies before the final sequence by messing a lot of QTEs and you’ll see Olson turned into some sort of a superhuman monster with red eyes.

I hope this endings walkthrough for The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan helped you. If you think I missed some variations or endings, feel free to let me know!
