Brenda shoots me
Hi I'm stuck on the chapter where Brenda shoots me, I can't figure out how to not get shot, please help me
Answer from: Mechanical R
You need to talk to her as you approach her, however there's a glitch which I'm also experiencing where the conversation option won't appear meaning you always get shot.
Answer from: TwisteDCroniK
After the second question, approach brenda very slowly and stop as soon as she says anything.
Answer from: lazycoffeeguy
Me too... i'm glad someone else is having this issue. I keep getting shot with no conversation or action option pops up. THEY NEED TO FIX NOW!!!!
Answer from: Dom K
I was having this problem too. You have to walk step by step and stop whenever she says something and you must always be looking up and the options will pop up.
Answer from: victim no.68
Nothing does work ! I tried install other version, i tried tap W, D buttons, I tried to stop when she says about 6345 times, I tried change some decisions I've made... NOTHING !!
Answer from: nonyourbusiness
Okay some say there is a glitch, maybe for some there is because they can stop moving but I saw something somebody said, you have to aim the options icon lower at her knees, you have to do it a few times as she keeps backing up. but the idea is if you aim lower, below the waist you will get the option for dialog. just don't make her angry
Answer from: Z3PP
Aiming below her feet fixed it for me, no idea why that works but it does. Thanks!
Answer from: Souljedi
Fina,Bloodily! Stressed myself out trying to get past this spot, have done all of the below and had to give up!!! Got home from work and tried again reluctantly and after 3rd attempt got it, Aim at the hostages right hip and inch forward until she aims at you, Stop them move curser about only over hip suggested and Bam! Got options to choose, But have to repeat until you get a a Zombie treat.... Enjoy, SoulJedi.
Answer from: hudd
I tried about 20~30 times and finally solved, Important thing is when brenda aims to me(just before shoot) DO NOT MOVE and move your mouse slightly over. then you'll make the conversation option, enjoy.
Answer from: T MONEY
Looking under her waist does work, just do it slowly and it will work just fine!
Answer from: answer
The way that worked for me was to stop moving as soon as she points at me and flail the cursor around and the option popped up
Answer from: PSpshaw
PS3 glitch not fixed. I can't stop walking. She just keeps shooting me, and there's no cursor anywhere. Fix this glitch!
Answer from: That guy 19
Yeah just taking it step by step worked for me too, but that glitch is just absolutely retarded.
Answer from: MeMoX
Approach to brenda very slowly and stop as soon as she says anything. thats it it worked for me
Answer from: jimmyjames
I thought it was a glitch too but its not after doing it about a billion times I figured it out out have to keep ur cursor around her hip and just very very slowly creep and do this like 3 times and zombie will get her
Answer from: lol
Its not a glitch, you just have to stop wen she aims at you
Answer from: metalKA
Yes it's a glitch, i think i need to do this episode all over again... i tried like 25 times, it works the first time but i got killed, then i wasn't able at all
Answer from: lee hunter
When she aims move below waist and when option opens don't make her mad or she shoot like lee you don't have the guts brenda (bam)
Answer from: wentle85
Yes, it is a glitch. She say stop, I let go of the stick, yet he continues to move and get shot. Everyone should drop the attitudes.
Answer from: mastercom
Its very easy, when ever she says stop or i will shoot, just stop and don't move, once she stops talking wait for few seconds and continue moving and if she says stop just do it, the option will come out and click the block on your pad to talk to brenda. Continue doing this until you will see the last option to get out from there.
Answer from: Snake
In case anyone is still having this issue on Xbox. The reason your failing is because the movement stick. Is still registering that your moving foward. The key is to move foward and to stop dead in. Your tracks, move the right analog stick around. The one with the options. Worked for me.
Answer from: broken
Ok so i had loads of trouble with this. On the ps3 very slowly bit by bit. Tiny steps walkin forward. The old lady will eventully point her guna at you, thats when the box should pop up to chat. If she shoots u all the time it probably the glitch try going slower. An try loads of times. It took me 30+ goes. Dont give up
Answer from: Guest
Looking below Brenda's waist, at the hostage's right hip, and walking forward VERY slowly finally got through this!
Answer from: prophet
Its not a glitch you just have to stop moving completely when she says anything
Answer from: Wyatt
The people who are saying its not a glitch are fortunate not to have wasted their money on a game you cannot finish. Stop being contrary. You're not right and it makes it worse for the people who never will finish this game.
Answer from: Derp
I timed my movements with when she looked away from me. The moment her eyes went to the hostage, I took a step forward. I kept inching closer and closer until the chat bubble finally appeared and then repeated the process until it was over.
Answer from: Problem solver
I had trouble with this for a while after doing alot of reading up on this problem i found the best solution for xbox is to let go of the analog stick completely when she points the gun at you instead of pulling back it works and its strange but try it!
Answer from: Dumb Glitch
Just figured it out. i was looking on other forums besides this one, switch your controller and try this scenerio again. My regular controller, even though the analog sticks WERENT sticking, was for some reason the cause for the glitch. i switched to a crappy wired controller i never use and it worked. i literally tried 30-40 times and after switching it took one try. time to switch back to the regular controller. talk about aggravating.
Answer from: Riley
When she tells you to stop, then stop. For a few seconds you approach her then stop again. And the same thing again 'till she gets killed by a zombie. It worked for me. But i have no idea what that glitch you guys are talking about.
Answer from: Pouya
The problem is after the second time, when i tell him " let her go,brenda" she says ill kill her lee and after that when i try to go near her she says " i told you to stop" and BOOM. i found a zombie near the stairs but i see no reaction from him and brenda wont get catched after the second question! i dont know what to do.
Answer from: NeverGetBitten
You have to slightly flick the joystick to move closer little by little, Slightly not quickly and you'll notice to be getting closer than where you normally get shot at. The SECOND time do as before "Slightly" flick the joy stick to move closer, Take Baby Steps! and she will again aim at you to shot but wont, leaving you action cross on her to see that you can communicate or "Reason" with her. The closer you get you will see a Zombie trying to grab her trough the stare rail, HAVE FUN! And always make the wise decision making, you can never trust anyone!
Answer from: WalkingDead
When you frighten brenda and go inside, walk slowly, looking up, until she says something the stop. This will happen twice then look back down at her and the conversation option will appear.
Answer from: Swanson
I had serious issues, turned ps3 remote off then on, inched forward, had no problems
Answer from: Logan
Hey, so i did pretty much everything, eventually i turned off my xbox and came back to it, but i also rewind to episode 6 until you are approaching the house, there you get given an choice if you chose to "alert Brenda of your presence" not frighten her, then it seems to work for me. I'd still approach slow etc. good luck guys and i hope this helps
