How to Kill Jason in Friday the 13th: The Game
Those who’ve been following the development of Friday the 13th: The Game are well-aware of the fact that the development team has stated on several occasions that it is absolutely possible to defeat Jason Voorhees. The question is -- how?
People all over the web have been trying to figure it out, and many agree that since the game is asymmetrical there needs to be a win condition that comes up very rarely during the gameplay. Actually, players who had the chance to chat with the developers stated that this condition comes up once every 75 game sessions.
So, first of all, you need to have a lot of time and patience to be able to kill Jason, and secondly, you need to know the win condition to be able to spot it at the right time. Below is described one of the ways how to kill Jason in Friday the 13th.
Stun and Knockout Jason
Since Jason Voorhees is a playable character in the game, he has his own level of stamina and health. However, he is extremely strong, so it’ll take a few stuns before you will be able to defeat him. Many players believe that the more times you manage to stun him, the weaker he becomes.
There are several ways how to stun or knock down Jason in Friday the 13th. The most effective way is to hit him with a machete or an axe, and you need to make sure that you hit the head, as it is his only truly vulnerable part of the body.
After you’ve weakened Jason by stunning him several times, you will be able to knock him out using a baseball bat. It will put him down for about 10 seconds, which gives you a lot of time to prepare for the next step.
Remove the Mask and Kill Jason
Jason Voorhees is constantly wearing a hockey mask on his face that serves as both a disguise and a protection. But if you managed to knock him out, his stamina will drop sharply and he will become much more vulnerable.
So the next step that will get you closer to killing him is to make sure that you can break his mask. This may require an involvement of several counselors, so probably don’t try it alone. Surround him and keep hitting until the mask goes off.
Finally, you need to have enough time to deal damage and kill Jason for good. You must find a way to keep Jason stunned for as long as possible, and the only way to do it is to set up a bear trap, which may hold Jason for an entirety of 15 seconds.
This is still not a sure thing, since Jason needs to step right into it. Also, the trap can be easily spotted, and that’s why it’s so hard to kill him. But if you manage to get him trapped, and then hit his unmasked head, there is a huge chance that you will be able to take him down.
At this point people have been expressing their doubts about the possibility of killing Jason in the beta of Friday the 13th, and many will probably just wait for the official solution and the release of the finished game.
Yes, the chance of killing Jason is extremely small, but this doesn’t mean that it’s impossible. Anyhow, let us know if you’ve found any other way to kill Jason in Friday the 13th: The Game in the comments below.
