Return of the Obra Dinn: All Crew Members and Causes of Death

Return of the Obra Dinn is a truly unique mystery game and I absolutely love it, even though it does drive me crazy every now and then. It is most difficult to track all the crew members and find out their causes of death – but things will be a lot simpler now thanks to our bare-bones guide to the Return of the Obra Dinn crew members and their cause of death.

You will still have to play the game and go through all the exploration elements yourself, but it will be easier now that you have this info. You will know where to search, what to do and you’ll have a bit of sanity left instead of having to wander aimlessly around.

As you can imagine, there are a ton of spoilers in our Return of the Obra Dinn walkthrough below so only read if you really want to know the causes of death of all crew members of the Obra Dinn. This list is not based on the chapters the deaths occur, but on the rank of the crew. Use Ctrl + F and search for a specific name if needed.

Now that you’ve been warned, let’s get started and move on with out guide.
