Main article: Ronald's Appetite

After being rescued, Nathan will wait in the room with the blue door. When Ronald Shiner complains about the lack of food, he rallies up the other survivors in the same room, including Nathan, to head out and look for food.

If Frank does not stop Ronald's mutiny, Nathan will leave the Security Room along with the other survivors in the same room. They will no longer count towards the number of rescued survivors.
