According to an email sent to Heroes Evolutions participants, there are 14 possible outcomes. This page notes the different possible versions of chapter 6 of Operation Splinter.

All cases

After 10 minutes, the Primatech contractor and the Pinehearst contracted player reach a small control shed at the end of the dam just outside town that was in Aaron's photo. In the shed, there are four closed-circuit camera displays: The first display, labeled "Generator Room", shows inside the dam where water roars through conduits and spinning machinery. Red Eye and Anna are there arguing. The next one, labeled "Maintenance Chamber", depicts a large, dark room next door to the first. A group of dam workers are hiding in the chamber, armed with pipes and tools. The third one, labeled "Upper Deck", shows the top of the dam, where a dozen Kill Squad soldiers are patrolling and a truck waits at the far end of the dam. And the fourth display, noted as "Water intake", shows a row of giant grills in the water on the back side of the dam, just below the upper deck. The lake next to the back side is mostly covered by ice, but in the open patches around the grills, four men in wetsuits are tying high explosives to the water intake.

The Primatech contractor tells the player about the potential ways things could go wrong: the workers jumping Red Eye and Anna, Red Eye jumping the soldiers or the bomb not getting defused. The player then asks if pessimism is a Primatech job requirement, and the Primatech contractor replies that it's more like an occupational hazard. The Primatech contractor lets the player choose their path.

Notes

  • Option 1 is the optimal/successful case since the primary objectives of Anna being rescued, the dam being saved, and both contractors staying unharmed are completed. Option 8 has the same result, but requires the contractors to risk their lives to a greater extent needlessly. Option 12 also has the same result, but risks the maintenance workers falling prey to the Kill Squad while the player talks to Red Eye. Option 14 also has the same result, but it both risks the maintenance workers falling prey to the Kill Squad while the player talks to Red Eye, and the contractors risk their lives to a greater extent needlessly.
  • Options 3 is the near-canon option since in that case, the Kill Squad gets away with Red Eye and Anna as specified in Graphic Novels #117-118, and the Primatech and Pinehearst contractors are tied up and forced to watch the dam explode as noted in chapter 4 of The Private. The official ending of the Red Eye graphic novels picks up with the Kill Squad holding Red Eye and Anna prisoner in the woods, and the squad torturing Red Eye. In chapter 4 of The Private, Jim tells Rachel Mills that Jeremy Woo was killed when terrorists blew up a dam nearby where they were working. He also notes that those responsible were caught, but that his company did not do anything and that they just watched.
  • Options 9 and 15 have a similar result to Option 16, but in Option 16 the dam workers are not notified of the impending explosion and do not flee when the player shouts for everyone to leave. Also, the contractors are not under sniper fire in Option 16.
