Life is Strange: Chaos Theory – Decisions

This page of Life is Strange shows all decisions made in Episode 3 (Chaos Theory) and their outcomes. Please note that while decisions affect the game’s situation, they are not related to achievements.

Decision #1


Decision #1

The first decision is based on the survival of your plant. If you watered it in both the first and second episodes, it dies. However, watering it in only one episode allows it to survive.

Consequences:

Chapter 3

Max informs her mom that the plant is either dead or alive.

Decision #2


Decision #2

The second decision involves finding ingredients for a bomb in the chemistry lab. Searching through the tests on the desk, you can change Warren’s bad grade to B+/A+ (depending on whether you helped him during the experiment).

Choice: Change Grade

Consequences:

Chapter 3

Max changes Warren’s grade and he messages her about it in Chapter 4. In Chapter 5, Max can kiss Warren if she had helped him earlier.

Choice: Keep Grade

Consequences:

Chapter 3

Warren’s grade remains unchanged. He messages Max about it in Chapter 4, and Max can kiss him in Chapter 5 if she helped earlier.

Decision #3 and #4


Decision #3

The third decision involves replacing names on Vortex club invitations with your own. This decision takes place in the swimming pool, and it’s important not to speak to Chloe before finding the boxes shown in the picture.

Choice: Remove Names

Consequences:

Chapter 4

If Max convinces Courtney to add her to the list, she will help Max enter the VIP section. Otherwise, Max must sneak around the swimming pool.

Decision #5


Decision #5

The final decision is about erasing a recorded message from a police officer in Chloe’s house. The message implies that Chloe is responsible for the break-in, and erasing it spares her trouble. Playing the message has consequences, however. If played before erasing it, Joyce will hear it, and Max must rewind time.

Choice: Erase message

Consequences:

Chapter 4

Chloe receives mail summoning her to interrogation because her car was spotted near the school during the break-in. Joyce also messages Max, indicating that she knows about their involvement.

Choice: Keep message

Consequences:

Chapter 4

David answers the mail in an effort to protect Chloe.

Choice #6


Choice #6

There is another decision to be made in the parking lot where you can warn Alyssa about danger. To do so, approach her until the “Warn” option appears. After she gets splashed by a car, rewind time and quickly select this option. You only have a second to do this, so you may fail at the first attempt.

Choice: Warn

Consequences:

Chapter 3

Alyssa will talk to Max about Kate.

Chapter 4

If Max saves Alyssa four times, she will dedicate Robert Frost’s poem to her.

Choice: Don’t Warn

Consequences:

Chapter 3

Alyssa will not talk to Max about Kate.

Chapter 4

As a result, Alyssa will not cite Robert Frost’s poem.

Choice #7


Choice #7

To encounter the next decision, walk around the diner and find a homeless woman. You can either tell her the truth (warn her) or ignore her. If Max tells her the truth, she will believe and escape the city before a tornado strikes. Otherwise, she will die.

Choice #8


Choice #8

In the last chapter, there is another decision where you can take a picture of Chloe and her dad or not. Approach the camera next to Chloe and take a picture to make it appear in Chloe’s room in the alternative reality. If Max does not take the photo, it will not be in the room.

Choice #9


Choice #9

The last decision is whether to draw something on the fireplace or not. Approach the right side of the fireplace to see this option.

Choice: Draw

Consequences:

Chapter 4

The symbol will be present in the alternative reality, at Chloe’s home. Mark may later comment on the symbol.

Choice: No Action

Consequences:

Chapter 4

The symbol will not be present in the alternative reality, at Chloe’s home. Mark will not comment on the symbol.
