The Walking Dead: A New Frontier Episode 5 Walkthrough And Choices
The Walking Dead A New Frontier Episode 5
(Last Updated On: June 15, 2017)

The fifth and final episode of season 3 of Telltale’s The Walking Dead: A New Frontier is now available for Xbox One, PS4, PC and mobile game users. The final episode gives gamers a brief wrap-up of the events that took place over the past several months, and you can find both the standard and alternate walkthroughs of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Episode 5: From The Gallows.

YouTuber RapidRetrospectGames has both walkthroughs available, showcasing what happens in the standard playthrough and the alternate playthrough where different choices are made. You can check out the standard playthrough below. This usually consists of common choices that most other gamers make as well when they play through the game.

In the last episode players had the choice of killing one of the two comrades while David was being tried for rebelling. Javier ended up killing Joan during a negotiation process.

After a recap of Episode 4, there’s a flashback showing how David and Javier’s father who reveals that he has cancer.

There are a couple of choices you can make that will help or damage David and Javier’s relationship. If you choose to support their father over David then David will feel betrayed. If you reinforce David then he will feel a stronger connection with Javier.

After the flash back ends there’s an action sequence involving Javier, David, Kate, Gabe and Clementine.

Follow the QTE action cues until the title screen pops up.

You’ll have a series of choices to admonish David in how he talks to Gabe.

You’ll then have a choice in either forgiving or condemning Eleanor for betraying the group.

You’ll also have a choice in either cutting off the arm of a bite victim or letting him die peacefully.

If you cut off his arm he’ll die from shock.

Things quickly break down and David breaks Fern’s arm and shoots her husband as he begins to turn.

David will ask Javier to stand with him on the ledge. This is a defining player choice. If you choose to stand with your brother it will increase the bond between Javier and David.

If you show encouragement and loyalty to David, this will further increase the bond between Javier and David. If you choose otherwise it will weaken the loyalty between the two, as indicated in the video above.

Tripp will also make an appearance and you’ll have a choice to reestablish the relationship with Tripp.

Gabe and Javier will have some discussions about David, and then another short action sequence will commence.

After the group makes the swing across the bridge using the helicopter propeller, Tripp will fall to his death.

The group will then need to distract the zombies in order to get to the construction vehicles. Javi will need to split open a walker and walk through them. Simply avoid touching the walkers to complete the task.

David changes the plan and decides to take the group and leave. Kate decides to stay behind and save Richmond.

Kate announces that she’s in love with Javi and players will have the choice to either fight David or uphold the promise they made to their father and tell David they love him.

After David leaves with Gabe, players will have the choice of either chasing after David and Gabe by using the motorcycle or going back to Richmond with Kate and Clementine and saving the city.

If you decide to go back to the city and help the people, there’s another QTE that plays and then you’ll need to open the gate atop the lookout tower. In order to open the gate press the green button.

If you decide to help out at Richmond and fix the gate, Clementine and Javier will then choose to leave and go after David and Gabe.

However, by the time Javier reaches them, David is dead and Gabe is dying.

One of the final major choices will be to either give Gabe the gun or don’t give him the gun.

At the end Javier and Kate will have the choice of agreeing to start family or not while living in Richmond.

Jesus comes back to help save the people, but he can’t stay and says he has to go help other people.

Following a short conversation with Clementine the game will end.

In the alternate ending if you choose to go after Gabe instead of helping Kate, Javi will be able to get to the truck with David and Gabe and fight off the zombies with his bat. You can check out the alternate ending below courtesy of GamerrZOMBIE.

In the alternate ending David gets bitten in the neck. Javi will have an opportunity to talk to David before he dies.

Gabe will then use the gun to kill David before he turns.

Javier and Gabe will then return to Richmond and get the gate open.

By the time they get back to Richmond they find out that Kate has been turned. They don’t show or explain how, but she manages to cover the hole in the wall. It doesn’t necessarily make sense since Javier wasn’t there to open the gate in the first place, so how did she get the tractor through?

Nevertheless, the ending where Gabe lives ends with the two at the memorial talking about Kate’s death, as opposed to Javier and Kate talking about David, Gabe and Mariana dying.

One alternate ending that might be a little difficult to get involves having Clementine go and meet up with Gabe to stop him and David from fleeing. Clementine will be able to rescue Gabe while Javier and Kate repair the wall using the tractor. YouTuber JackSepticEye managed to uncover this ending in his playthrough, which you can check out below.

Yet another alternate ending, if you have a good relationship with Clementine, she’ll be able to save Gabe and Javier will be able to save Kate. If you didn’t kill the Doctor in Episode 4, he’ll also be alive. If the Doctor lives then he’ll tell Javi and Clementine where AJ is, and Clementine will leave Richmond to go find AJ and bring him back.

One other ending known as the “Everyone lives ending” features Javier saving Gabe, David and Kate.

If you build up a strong enough relationship with Clementine, she’ll go after Gabe. If Javier goes with Clementine he’ll be able to help save David and Gabe. Players will be able to talk to David and convince him to either return to Richmond or to “keep walking”.

This is also considered to be the best ending since almost everyone survives, and Clementine gets confirmation that AJ is still alive. However, it’s been stated that both David and Kate cannot both live in the end.

The season ends saying that Clementine’s journey is not yet through.

    Hey Billy, I found this on Reddit, not sure if it has ALL the endings but this shows some of the different endings that the player can have: http://i.imgur.com/xAVIXDU.png

    Thank you so much for making this! Hope this helps.

    • Cool thanks for sharing that. I’m sure it will definitely help a lot of people trying to find all the best endings.

    • BahamutKIller

      How do you get Clem to offer to say she will go after Gabe and David, my Clem told me shed go with me wherever I go so I had to either let Gabe or Kate die, there was no way arounf it.

  • lovielevie

    I had another alternative ending. I chose to go after Gabe and David, BUT instead of David dying he was fine. I’m not sure how that happened, it might have had to do with choosing whether or not to fight him after he finds out about Javier and Kate (I chose not to fight). But in my ending, David and Gabe did NOT get bitten. Clementine went with me to save them too so maybe that has to do with it. When we got back to Richmond, Kate still ended up turning though. But the fact is that there is an option where Gabe and David aren’t bitten and can be saved with Clementine’s help.

    • Sapphire Artemis

      How?

  • cabosse098

    I did every thing you said to get the best ending but Kate still died??? But Clem said the she would go any were I would so would that effect it at all?

    • Did Clem choose to leave to go save Gabe? Because if she does then you can go save Kate.

      If Clem goes with you to save Gabe and you manage to get their fast enough to save Gabe and David, then Kate might survive. It seems to be a tricky thing to do, but if you really want to save Kate it’s best to go with her. It’s hard to save both Kate and David.

      • cabosse098

        Ok thanks for the tip but I’ll try to restarte the game and and do my best too save them both

    • Sapphire Artemis

      Kate lived in my ending but David died and Gabe got bit I found him n gave him mercy

  • BrizLionGooner83

    My first play through Clem was “I’m with you Javi, no matter what” I knew if I decided to go after with Kate Gabe would die. I swore that the only two other than Javi I wanted to survive was Clem & Javi. So when I chose with Clem to go after Gabe, both he & David Survived, if I’d gone with Kate they’d both have died. Then I played through again & Javi & Clem split so went with Kate which means Kate & Gabe plus Clem survive which I was happiest about. Don’t think there is an option where both Kate & David survive together.

    • It’s really difficult but there have been a few people who managed to get both Kate and David to survive. It requires a lot of human interaction wrangling, like a cowboy riding in a rodeo of discourse decorum.

      • tyler ray

        No, Kate and David can’t both live, its one or the other. The video posted about everyone living was fake, and edited to seem like everyone lives.

    • Bofa

      Wow, for the ending where clem will go wherever javi goes, did you side with clem on every decision the entire season? Im curious how you got that ending

      • BrizLionGooner83

        There are a lot of variables but it all depends on 3 characters, how you treat Clem, Kate & David. However you can’t have both Kate & David Survive together. My advice is if you want Clem to split up with you when you go after David and Kate don’t do everything she wants throughout the story, if you want her to stick with you then support most of her decisions.

      • Sapphire Artemis

        No. I let Conrad trade her off to the new frontier. It didn’t help then but in the end we had each other’s back. N when she shot the guy over bullets I told them it was an accident instead of what Clem said to say

        • Bofa

          Nice. So i played it through twice now. First ending i got was Gabe and Kate lives. David dies.

          Second ending i got, David and Gabe die. Kate lives.

          Both playthroughs i shot conrad, lied for clem when she shot the guy over junk bullets, killed lingard, did NOT let david in at the warehouse, and a few other minor dialouge choices. But first playthrough i was with Jane at the end of season 2, and second playthrough i was with Kenny.

          BrizLionGooner83 is right, there are so many variables to this game!

  • Zack

    This is wrong- there’s another alternate ending! If Clementine decides to go with Javi, and you choose to go save Gabe, you save both David and Gabe. There’s a choice to decide if David stays with them or leaves forever, but he lives regardless in this ending.

    • Yep, thanks for the heads up. Added that in there. Seems like it’s kind of tricky keeping David alive.

    You missed a third alternative ending. It’s played out in one of jacksepticeye’s videos. Clementine will want to go after Gabe and Kate will want to save Richmond. Going with Kate will save both Gabe and Kate. :]

      How do you get that kind of ending, where Clementine WANTS to save Gabe? Does it have anything to do with the last episodes? Sry, I just want to get the one where she wants to save Gabe xD

  • BrizLionGooner83

    I thought this game was to be released on 30th May, I’m in Brisbane Australia and I have a PS4 yet I still can’t download it. When I click into episodes, on episode 5 it still says “Episode 5 Coming Soon”! Anyone know why? So confused. Should by my time now being 20:08 be released worldwide, just don’t understand…..

    • Usually updates on PS4 at around 5:00pm EST. That’s around 7:00am in your time I think.
