There are easier ways to survive a match in Friday the 13th: The Game than killing Jason when playing as a counselor. Escaping via the car or boat are the most feasible, but not necessarily the most rewarding. Killing Jason instantly wins the match for the counselors, and the bonus XP can help you level up much faster than simply running away.

If you're determined to kill Jason in Friday the 13th: The Game, you'll need to meet a few conditions before you can begin. Before you start, make sure at least one counselor on your team is female. Killing Jason is easiest to pull off if you have a group of people you know and can communicate well with. It takes coordination between each counselor to accomplish each objective.

When starting the match, a female counselor needs to head to Jason's cabin. Within, you'll be able to find Jason's mother's sweater. Only a female counselor can wear the sweater, and once you have it, you can begin moving in for the kill.

Friday the 13th: The Game: Get Tommy Jarvis

While the female counselor is getting the sweater, one counselor should be distracting Jason. The objective is to buy time to get the sweater and to eventually get killed. Once a counselor either dies or escapes, you should call them back using the big CB radio. They'll re-enter the game as Tommy Jarvis, who is the only one that can deal a deathblow to Jason.

If you spawn as Tommy, you should collect as many weapons as possible, preferably axes and machetes, as well as the other shotgun laying around the level. When you're geared up, you should attack Jason with everything you've got, starting with the shotguns. Eventually, you'll knock off Jason's mask.

Once the mask falls to the ground, have Tommy Jarvis pick it up. Now the female counselor with Jason's mother's sweater can move in close and activate the sweater using the button prompt on the right. When the sweater is activated, Jason will begin winding up to attack the female counselor, but he'll freeze up at the last moment.

When Jason is frozen, another counselor should attack Jason with a powerful weapon to stun him. Once he's stunned, the player controlling Tommy Jarvis should interact with Jason. This will deliver the final blow, and you'll have completed the process for killing Jason in Friday the 13th: The Game.
