Detailed Walkthrough[]

This chapter heavily depends on what Kara chose (or was forced to choose) in Fugitives.

The Motel[]

If she chose the motel, then Kara already has clothes, but still needs to cut her hair. This path has the benefit of having a bit more time to talk with Alice again without interruption or other things that need doing. After finishing her talk with Alice, Kara will notice Hank and Connor entering the Motel office. This leads to Evading the Police.

The Squat[]

If Kara and Alice stayed in the squat, then Kara still needs clothes, the clothes and the scissors are upstairs as well as a human corpse that she can find in the shower. Once she finishes changing her appearance, she can come down to find Ralph has caught a surprisingly large rodent of some kind. Then, Ralph demands to have a family dinner with her and Alice. He cannot be talked out of it, so he proceeds to char it in the fireplace. It is then up to Kara how she will handle his erratic behavior with anything from calm compassion to threatening him.

Then, Connor is heard outside and the player perspective is switched to Connor. The Android detective can question Ralph while he searches the Squat. If Kara was kind to Ralph, then Ralph will intervene on their behalf when Connor gets close to their hiding place. Connor will give chase to Kara and Alice as soon as possible. If Kara threatened Ralph, they appear to be already fled and Ralph will tell Connor that she has ran out the back door. Connor will pursue them. This leads to Connor's Pursuit.

The Abandoned Car[]

The sparsest conditions are when Kara and Alice stayed in the car. Kara spends the first half of the chapter putting together her disguise while Alice sleeps, that's why there are no opportunities to interact with her. When Kara first goes to the trunk of the car, it is jammed, so she must find a crowbar on the ground before donning the clothes inside. She will also find a pair of scissors in front of the car and use one of its mirrors to cut her hair. Finally she wakes Alice up and they leave for the train station. This leads to Evading the Police.

Evading the Police[]

If Kara stayed either at the Motel or in the Abandoned Car, she and Alice have enough lead time to try and avoid detection, as they make their way to the train station down the road. Kara will need to think quick dodging behind things and likely crossing the street repeatedly. If they make all the way to the station, they will be home free, if not it leads to Connor's Pursuit.

Connor's Pursuit[]

If Kara and Alice stayed in the Squat or were spotted by the police, then the player will take control of Connor chasing them down on the street until the two take their chances climbing a fence and crossing an extremely busy highway. Hank will then tell Connor to stop, so Connor can choose to obey him or follow his mission at the risk of his life.

Regardless, it is now Kara's turn to get herself and Alice safely across the road in the face of insurmountable odds, and if Connor pursues them the player will be playing both characters.

  • This is the first chapter to feature two playable characters.
  • Markus is the only playable character who never makes an appearance in this chapter.
  • Some players believe that the highway chase in this chapter may have been based on a piece of concept art from Heavy Rain, one of Quantic Dream's previous titles. The concept art shows Ethan Mars being chased across a highway by Norman Jayden. This chase was not in the final game, so some believe the idea may have been repurposed to create the chase with Kara and Connor.
  • In a concept art of the game, it seems that the highway chase was going to lead to a multiple-vehicle collision but it was never realized or cut out.
  • If Kara chooses or is forced to sleep in the abandoned car, she will find a pair of old scissors sticking out of an abandoned tire and will use one of the side mirrors of the abandoned car to cut her hair.
  • At the parking lot, there is a graffiti on the nearest wall above the abused android that says "Death to Androids".
  • The quickest Kara can be alerted by the police in any version of this chapter is when she sleeps in the abandoned car. She can peek out from the gate and spot a patrolman as soon as she exits the car.
  • This is the only chapter that gives players the opportunity to change Kara's hair color. By choosing black or keeping brown, and with Kara having cut her hair short, she can more closely resemble the version of Kara in the tech demo.
    • Oddly, even after coming face to face with Connor, Kara doesn't attempt to change her appearance again.
  • If Kara successfully stole the clothes in the laundromat from Fugitives she will not have the option to change her clothes if she stayed in the squat or abandoned car.
  • The only way to have Ralph reappear in Battle for Detroit is for Connor to find Kara and Alice in the Squat and have Ralph defend Kara.
  • In order to unlock "Forgot Gun", Kara must have taken the gun in Stormy Night, not taken the clothes from the laundromat and stayed in the Squat in Fugitive. While in the Squat, change clothes, don't pick up the gun and go downstairs after cutting hair. When Ralph offers food for Alice, Kara must refuse both times. This will cause Ralph to stop Alice, and Kara will have the option to "Check Gun".
