Alan Wake 2 Point Of No Return Walkthrough

Alan Wake 2 is a survival horror game developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Epic Games. The game features a thrilling storyline that follows the protagonist, Alan Wake, as he tries to uncover the truth behind the mysterious events that are happening in the town of Bright Falls.

One of the most challenging parts of the game is the “Point of No Return” chapter, which takes place during the game’s campaign.

In this chapter, players must navigate through the game’s story mode and complete certain tasks before proceeding any further.

In this article, I will explain what the Point of No Return is in Alan Wake 2 and how to complete it.

Point Of No Return: Alan Wake 2

The game has two playable characters: Alan Wake and Saga Anderson. Most of Alan’s chapters have the Initiation tagline, while most of Saga’s chapters have the Return tagline.

There’s a core feature that allows you to switch realities so you can experience the perspective of the other protagonist.

However, you’re still required to go through both arcs just to complete the campaign.

Saga Anderson’s Point Of No Return

Occurs at the end of Return 6 – Scratch.

After scaring off Wake’s doppelganger, you’ll have a chat with Casey and Estevez in the Sheriff’s Station in Bright Falls.

You’ll have to add more evidence on your case board, then use the Profiling action on Tor. This will reveal a method for you to rescue Alan Wake.

Once the above tasks are done, you’ll notice that you’re able to chat with Estevez. First about the Clicker, and then about coming up with a new plan.

A warning will then show up clearly on your screen: 

This is the beginning of the endgame. To travel to Cauldron Lake, you need to save your game first. Exploring and traveling to other areas will be limited if you continue.

Before you proceed, I recommend obtaining all the collectibles in Saga’s arc. These include Alex Casey Lunchboxes, Cult Stashes, Nursery Rhymes, Deer Heads, Manuscript Pages, and Mayor Setter Placards.

Happens once you place Alice’s photos in the shoebox.

As such, I suggest grabbing all of Alan’s collectibles, such as Words of Power and Echoes, before proceeding any further.

In any case, that’s everything you need to know about the Point of No Return in Alan Wake 2.
