This will trigger the evil ending of the game The Hunters think The Unity should be available for everyone if they can use it. You must also kill or persuade Keeper Aquilus before the final mission. During your final mission, you can persuade the emissary to step away, but doing this will not reward you with a gun. Killing the emissary will reward you with the gun Eternity’s Gate.

Side With The Emissary

The Emissary has a different view than the Hunters. According to them, Unity should be safeguarded from those unworthy.
