You are faced with a quick time event that will determine the life of Juniper at the end of Episode 2 of New Tales From The Borderlands. Anu, Octavio, and Fran have entered the Vault on Promethea and run into the Devourer – the Vault Monster – in chapter 4. Juniper tries to confront the Vault Monster during this encounter, however, as Anu tries to rescue Juniper from being devoured, you are challenged with a quick time event.
The quick time event is rigged because even if you manage to press the button in time, you will fail to rescue Juniper. The only way to successfully pull this off is when you have good team coordination. This means that your choices leading up to this event have impacted the outcome of this encounter.
