The End of the Road, simply known as the End of the Road, is an 'extension' of the vast linear, long area known as The Road in the Nightmare. The End of the Road is specifically an area where players will face many imminent threats that will spawn more frequently than any other zones in the Nightmare. They will also likely encounter the Democan on a 'frequent' basis, the 'main boss' of the two zones.
The End of the Road will be indicated and mentioned after the players managed to pass through two 'complete-darkness' areas two-thirds near the end of The Road. The End of the Road can then be identified after players had reached a closed-up road blocked with debris, boulders, and other road hazard signs and barriers near the very end of the road. Players may notice several particles of varying colors of the Frontier emitting from the ground as the players venture to the sinister environments of the End of the Road of what appears to be a nightmarish factory of some sorts.Upon exploring the very end of the road, they will notice moving platforms moving up and down, left to right as they attempt to navigate through obstacles, creatures, and other objects found at the very end of the End of the Road.

Once they have managed to find the Journeyman in the maze, they may interact with the NPC to listen to the tunes in order to progress through the opening of The Vault. Once the players listened to all three tunes, the Journeyman will

Mobs such as the Boomer, Democan, Path Gambler, Spiker, and The Chewed are one of the many creatures that can be found in the zone on a frequent basis, making it difficult for players to navigate through the place without dying. Despite the 'violent nature' of the zone, players may visit the zone to farm various creatures and collectibles that spawns in the zone for gold.
