Detailed Walkthrough - How to Save Laura
Outside of getting QTEs right and moving the plot forward, you want to use a spoon found in the window of your cell to pry open the brick near the floor. When you are attacked by Max, you can then find a syringe upstairs and hide it in that brick. Then, use it on Travis to get out unscathed.
After this, you'll find Laura and Nick in the Hackett house. She's already turning by this point so you just have to stay alive a little longer. Choose to shoot the gun as Laura and choose to leave the knife in as Ryan.
Then, make your way through the house, doing all the QTEs. As Ryan, shooting Chris in the following conflict will bring Laura back. If you choose to have her bite Ryan, both will be fine after killing Chris.
From here, kill Silas alongside Travis to cure everyone else. If you get all of this done, Laura will make it out of The Quarry alive.
If you're playing through the game for yourself right now and recognise them, here's what you should know about The Quarry voice actors. It's a game with a bunch of Hollywood stars behind it, so knowing who is who (if it isn't clear enough already) can add some extra meat to the bone of the game.
