Death hints are short snippets of text that pop up on the screen after the player dies in Amnesia: The Bunker. They serve to provide clues for the player on how to avoid the various dangers within the bunker.

General hints[]

Soldiers are smart. They take what we give them and they improve it. And they talk to each other. Knowledge spreads among the men via letter and note and gossip. Trust the men.

Romain Delpy, Général de brigade, 4th army of the Third Republic

You need supplies, you best learn to make them yourself. Scrap, scrape, save and make do. That's the trick. Only a fool waits for an official re-supply.

Sgt. Major Johannes Melius

A tool's no good to you unless you have it in hand ready to use. That's just common sense.

Sdt. Charles Lavoie

My father used to tell me that the world was made of sturdy stuff. He said reality was firm, tangible. Like planks of pine. I'm glad he died before this hell started or else he'd have seen the truth: anything can be destroyed. Even the hardest wood. And underneath it all is chaos.

Sgt. Major Johannes Melius

Monster hints[]

The enemy is always listening. Never run, your feet will betray you. Instead, move like a cat. Careful. Slow. Fearful but predatory.

Sdt. Jules Corbin

All predators hunt by sound. If you want to kill then listen. If you want to survive, then for God's sake be silent.

Sgt. Major Johannes Melius

These new flashlights are loud as hell. Useless in the field, the Germans would hear us cranking them miles away.

Sdt. Francois Allard

Some of the men have taken to playing games in the trenches. Can you imagine? Death surrounds us and they are playing hide and seek. Scurrying underneath tables. Flattening themselves under their bunks.

Sgt. Major Johannes Melius

I shot him three times before he backed off. I wonder what they're feeding those soldiers.

Sdt. Charles Lavoie

They say war forges boys into men. Maybe that's true. But it's done the reverse to me. I fear the dark and what it hides more now than ever. The light of the generator, it keeps the darkness and its monsters away. I wish they'd keep it on all night.

Sdt. Francois Allard

Mulhouse. 1914. Days before the retreat. I was surrounded by wire and mud. A German right there. Right in front of me! I knew I needed a sound that could distract him. So I grabbed an old wine bottle and tossed it. The clatter it made! The German jumped at it and I had him.

Sdt. Jules Corbin

They say that every enemy has a tell. Take the artillery fire for example. When it gets louder, you know the Germans are coming soon after. Know your enemy well enough and they will tell you all you need to know.

Sgt. Major Johannes Melius

Rat hints[]

I think I'm losing it, really losing it. The shells were so loud yesterday I found myself just staring at a group of rats. They were gnawing at a fresh corpse. I didn't shoo them off. Just watched. Wondering... why the fresh corpse... why not the cooked one right next to it?

Sdt. Francois Allard

My new favorite past time: scaring the rats with fire. Laurent says I'm sadistic but I saw him laughing.

Sdt. Henri Bruno

The gas attacks. Insanity. Being out there in one, it's like being in hell. But with a mask? With a mask you can see your way out of the inferno.

Sdt. Charles Lavoie

That Laurent, he's like one of the rats! So protective of his food, I even look his way while eating and he threatens to stab me. Then again, should I want one of his biscuits, he's also quite easy to distract.

Sdt. Henri Bruno

They don't tell you this in training but never shave. The battlefield rats, they love blood. Any amount of it. One nicked and you'll wake to them gnawing on your face.

Sdt. Charles Lavoie

Our rodent bunkmates, they really aren't so bad. Just don't interrupt their meals and don't bleed. They'll leave you alone.

Sdt. Jules Corbin

Trap hints[]

Last raid, up and over, 70 meters straight into machine guns. But we made it, by God! Then I jumped into the German trench and found it lousy with traps. Traps everywhere! That's where I lost my leg.

Sdt. Francois Allard

Frezenberg. May. Days of hell. I tripped a wire and thought for sure I was dead. But it was only a sound trap. I was lucky... but then the Germans came running...

Sdt. Henri Bruno

The amateur soldier thinks once they reach the German line, once they infiltrate, the raid is over. No. That is where the raid begins. Come prepared with tools to disarm traps. Come prepared for close quarters combat. Come prepared for blood.

Romain Delpy, Général de brigade, 4th army of the Third Republic
