Lost Cartridge Cold Read: All Hidden ‘Dead Ends’ Guide
This guide describes how you can get all of the hidden ‘dead ends’ in the game. Spoiler Alert!!!
I’d like to thank ‘Gross’ for helping me find some of these ‘Dead Ends’.
Playing With Fire
Light the furnace up using the lighter and walk towards the fire.
In the backrooms, walk to the door on the right (the door that leads to the area behind the front desk (the area where people return books)).
Feed Me, Mitch!
Attempt to grab the library card from the plant.
The Cutting Edge
Attempt to break the vending machine using the fire extinguisher.
The Reassuring Statistic
Attempt to use the rope on the vending machine.
Attempt to use the rope on the clock.
Step on a bear trap set by the eye monster.
Get caught by the eye monster.
High and Dry
Step on the rope trap set by the eye monster.
Wire Snake Food
Get eaten by the wire snakes in the room under the trap door.
Conductive, but Not Productive
Attempt to cut the colored wires without pluging them out on the other side (computer room, audio room & VHS room).
Attempt to climb down the ladder revealed under the trap door without using a rope.
Get chewed by the sleeping monster in the hidden room right next to the toy room.
At the moment, there is no way to play that death tape. You are wasting your time.
This is the End, Friend
Get caught by Jackie (in ENDING 2).
Waiting to long in the cold means…
When you start a new game, skip the cutscene and go past the car to reach the exterior part of the library.
Then don’t do anything and just wait. Eventually you’ll freeze to death and get the achievement.
Go to the audio room and give Bepis cans to the hole in the wall 5 times.
Attempt to take the handle from the doll by force.
Nowhere to climb
Attempt to hide in the room under the trap door while being chased (needs to have rope).
Get caught by the static monster during a chase.
Take too long while doing the 2nd part of the puppet puzzle in Pietro’s play.
Might have to switch around between your body and the puppet for a few times.
Eye on the Prize
Attempt to climb the ladder without using the hot kettle.
Attempt to eat the employee’s lunch.
Put the toy block in the stove (in the kitchen).
Hide in the coffin (in the VHS room) during a chase.
Force mitch to look at the rope over and over again (without taking it).
♥♥♥♥♥♥ Way to Go
Use the toilet and go out without washing your hands.
Get eaten by a bug (in the basement where the fortune teller is).
Previously was possible to obtain through other means but they were removed.
