"Destruction, Darkness. We quickly raced forward knowing all too well that each decision we made held newfound hope or endless despair."
— In-game description

Decisions, Decisions, known in the Japanese script as Determination (決意 Ketsui?) is the fifth and final scenario of Resident Evil Outbreak, and takes place in and around the Raccoon University in the last hours before Raccoon City is destroyed. The level was completed from a draft outlined as Scenario "R041", one of some forty or so proposed stages for the game.


At a rescue station (which appears to be the R.P.D. underground garage), George Hamilton sees a note from his friend Peter Jenkins, asking for his help at the university. A few hours later, George leads a group of two or three other survivors into the university.

The survivors find Peter, killed by a gunshot to the back of the head. His notes suggest that he was working on an anti-virus called "Daylight", which eliminates the t-Virus infection from the body. A drug synthesizer is said to be located in the third floor lab and the survivors spread out to locate the three components necessary to generate the anti virus.

Meanwhile, a team of mercenaries from the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service encounter Thanatos, an experimental Tyrant created by former Umbrella researcher Greg Mueller, who was instrumental in creating the Daylight anti-virus as a means of combating the t-Virus. Meanwhile, U.B.C.S. operative Nikolai Zinoviev tries to obtain a blood sample from the Tyrant, shooting it with a capsule designed to draw blood into a vacuum tube. The creature resists, and quickly annihilates the groundside U.B.C.S. team before heading back indoors. After the survivors are able to disable Thanatos by luring it under faulty wiring, the capsule falls, enabling them to retrieve it full of T-blood, one of the three components.

The search for the V-poison leads the team down through Raccoon City's subway system and into an emission tower populated by a wasp colony. A pre-collected sample of their poison is recovered on the top floor.

The P-base, a sample of the unaltered Progenitor virus which "t" derives from, is found in a water-processing facility deep under the university, where Hunter γs are being kept.

When finally synthesising the vaccine, the power to the machine is cut. Looking around 3F, they are confronted by Greg. The scientist introduces himself and discusses having them killed by Thanatos. Greg is then shot through the head by Nikolai, allowing the survivors to escape with the "Daylight" sample. Nikolai starts the timer of a series of charges planted around the university.

The harried survivors reach the courtyard as the university is destroyed, and a rescue helicopter circles around to pick them up. Before it can descend to reach them, however, they are forced to deal with the Thanatos, which survived the explosion and has mutated into a 12' tall Super Tyrant. They either kill it with firearms or find an ampule shooter that rests on an abandoned M8 Greyhound armoured car and use it to fire a dose of Daylight into "Thanatos-R". If the latter is chosen, the anti-virus reacts with its contaminated blood and kills it spectacularly. The helicopter then rescues them and they escape the city as it is bombed, with the Daylight in hand and hope for the future.



The stage begins with the player's first objective being to find Peter, starting from the entrance hall. Peter is in the study room directly beneath, which can be accessed through a door behind the staircase. As the player lacks a key to open this door, they must go on a treasure hunt, collecting the Red Jewel and Blue Jewel which are then to be placed within the eye sockets of a moose head positioned on the wall opposite. The Red Jewel can be found hidden inside a cuckoo clock in the general manager's room on level 1F. Found in the same room is the Number Memo file, which contains a hidden code revealing the precise time the clock must be set to release the jewel. The Blue Jewel meanwhile is found inside a piano in the art gallery on level 2F. This jewel can be recovered either by playing the piano as Cindy, or by pulling a blue string in the presidents' room on level 2F.

It will be discovered that Peter is dead, but left behind notes on how to synthesise the antiretroviral drug, "Daylight". To do this several ingredients must be recovered from around the university: P-Base, T-Blood and V-Poison. The ingredients are to then be placed within a machine in the Laboratory on level 3F. First, however, power must be restored to the elevator, which has been shut down by a security system. This requires finding both the "Torn Memo" and "Part of Torn Memo" files, which are found in the study room and 1F passage B, respectively. Together, they will reveal a four digit code.

When the elevator becomes accessible, the player has the option of venturing to levels 3F, B2F and B4F, the latter two being starting points for the ingredient hunt. If playing with AIPCs, they will go their separate ways at this point to recover the ingredients. There is, therefore, the chance that if playing on Easy the player will have no need to look for all three.

Route 1: Emissions Tower[]

Choosing to explore level B4F, the player will pass through a stretch of sewers populated by giant spiders, followed by a dilapidated subway tunnel defended by giant wasps. As these wasps are poisonous, it is advised the player keep track of any Blue Herbs. On the other side of the train is the Emission Tower which can be traversed back to campus. While still on level B4F, the player must head from the T-shaped passage, through the storeroom and to the spare power supply room in order to restore power. When this is done, a ladder can be climbed from the T-shaped passage up to the emission tower access passage on level B3F.

As power has been restored, the player can now enter the emission tower elevator, which will take them up to level B1. This part of the map is where wasp activity is at its peak, so it should be advised that Blue Herbs be located before heading up. On level B1, the player can find V-Poison stuck to the wall, which is being turned into a hive for the wasps. With the ingredient in the player's possession, they need only walk up the stairs into a control room to get outside to the back square.

Route 2: Water purifying facility[]

The water purification facility on level B3F either of two ways. If it was the first choice by the player, it will be reached by heading down the elevator to level B2F and heading down a manhole to the west waterway. The water purifying facility can also be directly reached by going down another manhole in the back square. Level B3F is under the control of Hunter Gammas, who will use the water to hunt and hide from the player.

Route 3: Pier[]
