This walkthrough provides the best route through Part 5: Resolution to stay alive and earn the best stats. Many routes are possible to the end, and I encourage you to try them all. Sections of the game that are optional will not be included in this walkthrough.
For the purpose of this walkthrough, I’ll use the most common character type, a high-dexterity soldier. The group consists of Emma, Heather, Tom, Candace, Uncle Lou, Mindy, River, Devlin, Eugene and Jason. Badger is in the Cathedral as well.
Name: Mark Miller
The start of Part 5, chapter 1 has you dealing with the aftermath of the zombie attack on the Cathedral. The first major choice has you selecting a speech to say to your group who survived the zombie attack. Choose I try to raise the group’s spirits with encouraging words for the best increases to allegiance and morale.
Next, you have to deal with the fact you let Badger take refuge in the Cathedral during the Badger is part of our group now. While you take a slight hit to group morale, Badger is useful in the next few chapters.
Then, you are presented with the chore of assigning survivors to various tasks around the Cathedral. Follow chart A to assign survivors to optimal tasks.
Note: the number of people you assign to boarding up the entrance to the Cathedral must go up the lower your Cathedral Defense score.
- Cathedral defense of 60 or greater = 2 survivors (or 0 if you are a Carpenter or Tom is assigned)
- Cathedral defense of 45 to 59 = 4 survivors (or 2 if you are a Carpenter or Tom is assigned)
- Cathedral defense of 44 or lower = doesn’t matter, but assigning 5 or more improves Cathedral defense and allegiance

Following task assignments, you supervise the work, moving through each task.
At the end of the day, you move into an office. While setting up your new office, a procession of zombies in religious garb walks past. To survive, choose I stay still in the hope he continues past the office, followed by Follow the zombie cardinal, nuns, and altar boy as they proceed to the Gathering. What follow is a short sequence in which you run to the Sanctuary and get help from fellow survivors to kill the zombies.
To investigate how the zombies got inside the Cathedral, the survivors suggest a search of a back, secluded area. When asked by Tom to accompany you, choose, I’d rather go alone, Tom.
Following your search, you share your findings with the survivors. Choose The explosion during the raider attack must have created a hole allowing trapped zombies to escape.
