The Quarry is a survival horror game in which players take control of 9 different teenagers who must survive the night at Hackett’s Quarry. Similar to Until Dawn, players must make the appropriate decisions if they wish to survive. Otherwise, a gruesome death awaits.

However, the requirement to unlock the Hard Pass trophy is so vague that it has most people confused and concerned that the trophy might be bugged.
Requirements To Unlock The Hard Pass Trophy
When it comes to unlocking the trophy, the only hint given in the trophy’s description is “Refuse Eliza’s Help”. Eliza is the mysterious older woman in Hackett’s Quarry. She appears between each chapter and demands a Tarot Card from the player.
Now the hint given in the trophy’s description can be interpreted in many different ways. Eliza offers predictions of the future to the player. So at first glance.
