Killing Jason in Friday the 13th: The Game is pretty damned hard, and doing so requires LOTS of cooperation between you and your fellow camp counselors and a little help from one of Jason’s greatest nemeses.
So, how do you put down everyone’s favorite mama’s boy? Follow the steps below. Of course SPOILERS are about to ensue so STOP reading here if you don’t want to know what to do and who Jason’s nemesis is.
Still with us? GOOD!
Locate the CB Radio.
Once you locate the CB radio, you can use it to call in none other than Tommy Jarvis (Friday the 13th Parts 4-6). In order to get Jarvis into the game, one of the counselors will have to either escape or make the ultimate sacrifice for the team and let Jason get an easy kill. The now either escaped or dead player will come back as Jarvis, and he’s a man on a mission: Kill Jason.
Locate Pamela Voorhees’ Sweater.
We’ve all seen the shrine Jason set up for his mom. Good Jason. Good boy. Good. The next step is electing someone playing as a female character to go to Jason’s house and find the infamous article of clothing. Once she does and puts it on, it gives that player a ONE-TIME USE ONLY ABILITY that allows Jason to be stunned and confused. Think Ginny in Friday the 13th Part 2. More on that in a minute.
Be warned as soon as you enter the Shrine, whoever is playing as Jason will get an alert and he can teleport directly to there. NOT EASY.
Stun Jason and Knock His Mask Off.
Easier said than done, believe me. Jason will need to be stunned or trapped. Our recommendation is to lure him into a previously set bear trap. Once he’s still, you’ll need a weapon to bash the hell out of his skull, and his mask will (eventually) go flying off. It helps to have multiple counselors hitting him at the same time. Jason, as you know, is a pretty tough sonofabitch so expect some casualties. The machete works best at getting the mask off.
Interestingly enough… the person playing as Jarvis can grab the mask and put it on at this point, but that doesn’t seem to be a necessity in getting the job done. However, if Jarvis has the mask, Jason cannot get it back, so your won’t be forced to repeat the above step.
You… you wearing Pamela’s sweater, while Jason is unmasked, NOW is the time to use your sweater to stun Jason. You’ll even get to hear Pamela talking to Jason, thereby confusing him and making him drop his guard. This is so fucking cool. Make sure you’re (or a teammate) is holding a baseball bat or ax to instantly knock Jason to his knees. Hesitate when Jason drops his guard and you will be murdered.
The Death Blow.
Once Jason is on his knees, the player who is Tommy Jarvis must approach him and hit whatever button is INTERACT on your controller. NOTE: Tommy must have either an ax or a machete. Once you do that, BOOM!… a cut-screen showing off Tommy killing Jason… at least for now.
