This walkthrough emphasizes stealth and exploration. You can always go in with
guns blazing if that is your style.

This walkthrough is currently being updated to include Metro 2033 Redux
information. Metro 2033 Redux plays differently than Metro 2033.

\===========================================================================/

Medkit
--------
Press the [Q] key to use the Medkit. You can carry up to 5 stims in a Medkit.
Each stim will completely heal you and temporarily increase your natural
regeneration rate. Always use a Medkit when the Medkit prompt shows up on the
screen. You can buy Medkits at any station for 10 bullets.


Flashlight
------------
Use the [F] key to switch your flashlight on and off. The flashlight never runs
out of power. The flashlight can be made brighter by using the Universal
Charger.


Universal Charger
------------------
Hold down the [F] key to bring out the Universal Charger. Use the Left Mouse
Button [LMB] to manually build up a a charge. This powers both the Flashlight
and the Nightvision Goggles.

    Idle Animation: You inspect the charger and accidentally shock yourself


Journal/Lighter
-----------------
Use the [M] key to bring up the journal. The compass always points towards the
current objective. Use the Right Mouse Button [RMB] to see a list of your
current objectives. Use the Left Mouse Button [LMB] to use the Lighter for a
low level light source. The Lighter can give away your position so be careful
when using it.


Light Meter/Watch
-------------------
Use the [T] key to look at your watch. The three lights along the top are the
light meter which shows how visible you are to enemies. A green light means you
are in shadows and hidden. A yellow light light means you are in the shadows,
but partially visible. A red light means you are in a well-lit area and
completely visible.

The watch shows your current system time and the filter time remaining. The red
band means you have 5 or fewer minutes remaining; time to pick up a filter. The
yellow band means you have up to 10 minutes available. The green band means you
have more than 10 minutes available.


Stealth Suit and Heavy Suit
-----------------------------
You can wear either the Stealth Suit or the Heavy Suit. If you buy both suits,
you wear the last suit purchased. If you are not wearing a suit, you wear
raggedy knit fingerless gloves.

The Stealth Suit is only available at the Armory for 100 bullets. The main
parts of the stealth suit are urban camouflage type clothing, sneakers, leather
gloves, and a ski mask. The Stealth Suit quiets your footsteps and comes with a
pair of Nightvision goggles. This reduces the light meter by one step when
sneaking/crouching. No lights on the light meter means you are essentially
invisible.

The Heavy Suit is available at the Armory and Polis for 100 bullets. The Heavy
Suit reduces damage. The main components are a flak apron, fingerless cloth
gloves, and an enclosed helmet.

Activate the Weapons Bar using the Scroll Wheel or a number key to see what
suit you are wearing. The Stealth Suit shows up as a ski mask above the Medkit
icon. The Heavy Suit shows up as a helmet above the Medkit icon.


Gas Mask
-----------
The Gas Mask is essential for surviving on the surface and in toxic
environments. Gas Masks can be damaged, and become completely broken and
useless during fights. You can find replacement Gas Masks. However, you can
only pick up a Gas Mask that is less damaged than the Gas Mask you are using.
If you can't pick up a Gas Mask that means the Gas Mask you are trying to pick
up is as damaged or more damaged than the Gas Mask you are using.


Filters
---------
Gas Masks are useless without filters. You can only buy filters at Riga Station
(the first level of chapter 2) and at Market Station (the fifth level of
chapter 2). You can not buy filters at the Armory, Hole Station, or Polis
Station. You must find filters while exploring.

All filters have a number which equals the number of minutes the filter has
left before it needs to be changed. You can carry about a maximum of 35 minutes
of filters, but this does seem to vary from level to level. You can see how
many minutes you have left on your filters by using the [T] key to check the
time and looking at the red hand.
    0-5 minutes left  = red
    6-10 minutes left = yellow
    11+ minutes left  = green

As the filter is used up, the inside of the Gas Mask becomes fogged up. You can
manually change a filter by tapping the [G] key any time your Gas Mask becomes
fogged. You automatically change filters once the filter has been used up if
you don't manually change the filter first. If you use up all of your filters,
you automatically take off the gas mask. You will choke in about 30 seconds if
you are outside or in a toxic environment.

You can usually pick up filters only when you are low on filter time, usually
less than 5 minutes. However, there are some filters that you can always pick
up. Filters that you find while exploring can have up to 5 minutes of
additional time, although some filters can have up to 10 minutes. Additional
filter time can also be slightly random depending on how much filter time you
have left. If you have a lot of filter time, usually more than 15 minutes, then
filters tend to have less than 5 minutes.


Nightvision Goggles
---------------------
You get a set of Nightvision Goggles with the Stealth Suit and you can
find/loot them while you explore. Hold down the [N] key to wear/remove the
Nightvision Goggles. Tap the [N] key to turn the Nightvision Goggles off and
on. Hold down the [F] key to take out the Universal Charger and use the LMB to
charge up power for the Nightvision Goggles.
    1. Armory Station, comes with Stealth Suit
    2. Beginning of Frontline
    3. Loot from multiple enemies on Frontline
    4. Beginning of Trolley Combat
    5. Beginning of Black Station
    6. Loot from specific enemies in Black Station
    7. Free set at Sparta Base
    8. Beginning of Dungeon


Dirty Ammo and Military Grade Ammo
------------------------------------
There are two forms of ammo in the game.

Pre-war ammo is called Military Grade ammo and is also used as currency.
Military Grade ammunition has a distinct green case, copper jacketed bullet,
and a red and gold center. Military Grade ammo can be used in any type of
machine gun (Bastard, Kalash, VSV, and Kalash 2012). It can't be used in a
revolver. Military Grade ammo is reloaded automatically after you run out of
dirty rounds. Military Grade ammo is referred to as bullets in this guide as
that is the slang term used in the game by NPCs.

Dirty rounds are manufactured in the Metro. Revolvers use .44 caliber rounds.
Shotguns use 12 gauge/70mm ammo. The Tihar uses 15mm/0.59 inch ball bearings.
The Helsing uses arrows. Machine guns use 5.45x39mm dirty rounds that have a
dull brass casing with a lead jacketed bullet and a grey center.

Military Grade ammo and dirty rounds can be exchanged at any station.

    Ammo Exchange
                Buy for 1 bullet   Sell X rounds for 1 bullet
    Revolver       3 rounds             6 rounds
    5.45 ammo      5 rounds            10 rounds
    Shotgun        2 rounds             4 rounds
    Sniper         8 rounds            16 rounds
    Arrow          1 arrow              2 arrows


Weapon Summary
----------------
There are 5 weapon slots in the game: knives, revolver, machine gun, special
weapon (shotgun/pneumatic weapon), and grenades. You can carry one revolver,
one machine gun, and one shotgun/pneumatic weapon. You always have your Combat
Knife. You can carry up to 5 throwing knives, 5 grenades, and 5 sticky
grenades.

All revolvers can hold 6 rounds of .44 caliber ammo.
All machine guns can use 5.45x39mm dirty rounds or Military Grade ammo.
Shotguns use shotgun shells.
The Tihar fires ball bearings, or sniper ammo, with a 15 round magazine.
The Helsing uses arrows in a revolver type magazine with 8 chambers.

Weapons can be bought using Military Grade Ammo. Your current weapon has a
trade-in value that is subtracted from the cost. Weapons with scopes can only
be bought at stations, except for revolvers.

|___|  \__/ |_____|_2033 and REDUX_____________________________[M33-MUTANTS]__

Nosalis
---------
There's the underground nosalis, commonly called the snout. They are about
human-sized and resemble rats. There are three kinds. There is the common
hairless variety and a muscular, hairy type. The hairy ones are tougher than
the hairless ones. The third type is a winged nosalis that attacks using a
sonic scream.

The second type of nosalis is only encountered around D6. This nocturnal mutant
has glowing eyes and armored plates. It resembles a bipedal turtle. This type
of nosalis hates light and can be driven off temporarily with the flashlight.
It attacks like a lurker using hit-and-run tactics and hides in vents and
holes.



Watchers
----------
These mutants are found on the surface and are leaner and longer than the
underground nosalises. Watchers have small round heads with disturbing
human-like features. The common kind has grey fur. The stronger type has
darker fur and skin. Watchers stand on their hind legs and howl to alert
nearby Watchers. Watchers are tougher than nosalises.



Lurkers
---------
These are hairless rat-like mutants about as big as a medium-sized dog. Lurkers
make lurker holes which are always fatal if you fall into one. Lurkers use hit-
and-run tactics. They don't take a lot to kill, but a swarm of Lurkers can
quickly chew away at your health.


Demons
--------
Winged mutants and arguably the powerful mutants encountered. They attack by
swooping down from above and raking you with their talons. They can be avoided
by staying indoors or under cover as they need to land in order to attack. The
easiest way to kill a demon is to sneak up on it and hit it with a sticky
grenade. Otherwise, demons take a lot of ammo to kill. They are best avoided.


Bandits
---------
These are human criminals that have taken over some of the stations. They
typically use low grade weapons like Duplets or Bastard SMGs, but can be found
with Automatic Shotguns and Kalash rifles. They almost all carry grenades.


Reds/Fascists
---------------
These soldiers are currently at war in the Metro, trying to expand their
territory and spread their ideology among the survivors. Soldiers almost
always have either Kalash rifles or Automatic Shotguns. Almost all wear some
form of armor, even if it's just a simple helmet. A couple can be found with
Nightvision Goggles.


Librarians
------------
These powerful ape-like mutants can be found in the library (Library,
Depository, and Archives) . They are shy, but extremely territorial. Librarians
will always attack if you turn your back on them or if you don't back away when
they approach you. If they decide you're a threat, they attack. Librarians tend
to automatically jump through holes in the floor or ceiling even if they are
aggressive. Librarians each have their own territory inside the library and
won't leave their territory.


Anomalies, Ghosts, Dark Ones
------------------------------
Anomalies are glowing balls of energy that have an electrical attack.
Approaching or attacking an anomaly is an instant death for you.

Ghosts can only be seen when the flashlight is turned on. Walking into the
silhouette of a ghost usually results in death.

Dark Ones look like grey aliens with completely black, almond-shaped eyes; pale
and completely hairless skin; and elongated arms with three fingered hands.
Dark Ones surrounded by a red aura are hostile and trying to kill you. Always
run away from hostile Dark Ones. Dark Ones surrounded by a white aura are
friendly and trying to help you. It is safe to approach friendly Dark Ones.


Amoebas
---------
These are encountered in D6. Amoebas are gelatinous blobs that explode
spreading a toxic jelly over anything nearby. Amoebas spawn from disgusting
circular masses on the floor and walls. The best way to deal with amoebas is
to destroy the spawners so the amoebas don't overwhelm you.

    |  The tunnel grew colder -- Miller and I were close to the   |
    |  surface now. Soon we'd climb up into the howling wind, to  |
    |  find our way through whatever nightmares were waiting      |
    |  there. My long journey was nearly at the end. But would I  |
    |  have the courage...the will to see it through?             |

At the top of the ladder you can go to the left and interact with the fuse box
and turn the hand wheel by the left side of the first gate. On the left side of
the room you can interact with the control console, the telephone on the wall,
and the hand wheel to close the first gate. Follow Miller to the gate.

    !REDUX  Go to the left and grab the NOTE from the shelving

Go to the right side of the gate and press [E] to use the switch.
Hold down the [E] key to use the hand wheel to manually open the gate.

Hold down [CTRL] to crouch down and get under the gate. Here you can play with
the fuse box on the wall, close the second gate using the hand wheel, and open
the door on the right side of the hallway opposite the locker to turn off the
generator using another fuse box.

    !REDUX The Kalash in the crate has been removed and there's a gas mask
           in a wall locker in the side room opposite the lockers.

Open the wall locker above the open crate using the [E] key. Grab the two
filters. Grab the two Medkits and 12 clips of ammo from the lockers. You can
swap out your Kalash 2012 with the Kalash in the crate. Use the [SPACEBAR] to
jump over the gap. Press [F] to turn on your flashlight.

Follow Miller up the stairs. Press [G] to put on your Gas Mask before going
outside. Behind the counter to the left are two bodies where you can grab
another filter and some ammo. Fight off the nosalises. If you need to heal
during the fight, use the [Q] key to use a Medkit.
    !Steam Achievement: First Blood

    !REDUX  You can loot some ammo and a Medkit from the body. The
            Revolver has been removed.

Press the [E] key to grab onto the gate. Tap the [E] key to help Miller pull
the gate off the fence. If you go to the right there's a body sitting by a
tree. You can loot some revolver ammo and a <Revolver with rifle stock>. Hold
down the [SHIFT] key to sprint after Miller. You come under attack by a huge
pack of watchers. Then, the winged demons come.

    |  Life was never easy in the tunnel, but it was our home.    |
    |  There was comfort in its routines, in seeing the same      |
    |  people day after day. But since the mutant attacks had     |
    |  escalated, fear ruled the station. I had just turned       |
    |  twenty...and could never have imagined what would follow   |
    |  on the morning that my stepfather's friend, Hunter,        |
    |  arrived at the barricade...                                |
    |_____________________________________________________________|

For the Metro Dweller Achievement you want to talk to everybody, listen to all
the conversations, and knock on doors.

Your stepfather, Alex, comes to get you from your room in Exhibition Station.
There's a man resting on a woodpile just outside your room. There are two
guards talking by the lamp on the left. There's a room with a slightly open
door on the left. The man reading by the lamp says hello to you. There are two
doors to the left and one door to the right of the reader. Further down the
corridor there is a door you can knock on to the right and another door on the
left. There's a man standing at the bottom of the stairs.

At the top of the stairs, approach the guard that says hello to you. He sits
down on some crates.

    !MORAL GAIN    Listen to the man after he sits down

    !MORAL GAIN    Listen to the people waiting outside the hospital

    !MORAL GAIN    Enter the hospital. Listen to the guard after he
                    sits down

    !REDUX  Grab the note from the table

    !MORAL GAIN    In the first room of the hospital, go to the right
                    and stand under the overhead light.

    !REDUX          The moral point has moved. Move up to the curtained off
    !MORAL GAIN     section by the next door that's across from a pipe. Go to
                    the right and look at the wounded.

    Checking the other wounded in the hospital may or may not contribute to
    the Metro Dweller Achievement.

    !MORAL GAIN
Go through the second room of the hospital to the front hall. Here you meet
Hunter. Stand by the campfire and Hunter holds out a postcard for you. Take
the postcard to gain a MORAL POINT. If you're not quick enough, Hunter puts
the postcard back in his pack.

Then, the nosalises come.

Grab the revolver, ammo, and Medkit from the locker. Press [R] to reload the
revolver. Hunter automatically kills the first nosalis. Use your knife to kill
the ones that drop down from the overhead vent. Take out the revolver. You want
to kill the nosalises before they break through the ventilation grates.

After the fight is over, Hunter goes off to do some reconnaissance. Before he
leaves, Hunter makes you promise to notify Ranger Miller at Polis Station
about what is happening if Hunter doesn't make it back by morning. Hunter
doesn't make it back.

    |  Hunter did not return. It wouldn't be easy to find an excuse  |
    |  to leave the station and travel to Polis, but I had given     |
    |  my word. I learned that the Caravan was heading to Riga the   |
    |  next day, and needed guards. I signed on for the ride.        |
    |________________________________________________________________|

For the Metro Dweller Achievement you want to talk to everybody, listen to all
the conversations, and knock on doors.

You pick up some ammo, 10 rounds of Military-Grade ammo, and your Journal from
the table. The Military-Grade Ammo is used as money in the Metro. I'm going to
use bullets to refer to  money (pick up 2 bullets, give 1 bullet, buy for 10
bullets, etc). Use the [M] key to bring up your handy Journal with an
integrated objective compass. Press the Left Mouse Button [LMB] to use your
lighter. Use the Right Mouse Button [RMB] to read your Journal.

    !MORAL GAIN    Press the [E] key to play the guitar in your room

    !REDUX  Look down by the door and pick up the NOTE

Exit your room. Go straight, then left. Follow the path through the lower part
of the station.

    !MORAL GAIN    Stop to use the triangular guitar where the man is talking
                    to his son.

Look in the tipped over pot by door on the crate by door #9 for +3 BULLETS.

    !REDUX  You find +5 BULLETS hidden in the pot

Go up the stairs to the Market.

    !MORAL POINT
    !Steam Achievement: Generous
Talk to the man that's sitting next to the teddy bear. He asks for 2 bullets so
he can buy medicine for his sick son. Give the man the bullets for part of the
!Steam Achievement Generous and a MORAL GAIN. If you talk to the man and refuse
to give him the bullets, then you have a MORAL LOSS. You can just walk away
from the man without agreeing or refusing to help him, but can return to him
later and help or not help him.

    !REDUX  You can only customize your Revolver at the weapons merchant.
            The other Revolvers, the Bastard, and the Medkit are no longer
            for sale. This makes sense since you couldn't afford them.

There is a weapons merchant and a place where you can exchange ammo.

    !REDUX  You no longer lose a MORAL POINT for bothering the man
            in the glasses trying to make a deal

Go to the end of the Market and go to the right towards the Ammo Exchange
booth. There are two men talking at a circular table. Stay by the man with the
glasses. You have a MORAL LOSS for bothering him.

Go through the archway to the right of the butcher. Go straight and follow the
white signs to the  station's armory. You get a Bastard submachine gun (SMG),
100 rounds of ammo for the Bastard, a Universal Charger, and 3 Medkits. You can
practice at the firing range without using up any of your ammo.

Exit the Armory and go left through the open door towards the campfire.

    !REDUX          Look in the container at the guitar player's foot for
    !MORAL POINT    +5 BULLETS. In Redux, there's +8 BULLETS. If you take
                    the bullets, you have a MORAL LOSS.

    !MORAL GAIN     Go through the red door by the campfire to meet your
                    father.

    !REDUX  Pick up the NOTE on the right in your father's office.

    !MORAL GAIN     Listen to everything your father says for another MORAL
                    GAIN.

    !REDUX  There's +3 BULLETS across from the pigs

Go into the room past the campfire. Pick up +2 BULLETS from the bottom shelf
across from the pigs. When you're ready to leave, go to the platform. Talk to
the caravan leader and tell him you're ready. You board the rail car and set
off to Riga.

Lalalala. You're riding in a rail car down the tunnels of the post-apocalyptic
subway. The caravan gets diverted into a service tunnel. Take out one of your
weapons. Watch the freaky cutscene. You come to your senses back in the
rail car. One of your caravan companions gets the rail car moving again. It's
your job to protect the rail car. A bunch of nosalises, or snouts, start
chasing the rail car.

    !REDUX  You can no longer equip the knife, just perform melee attacks.
            You have to use the Revolver or SMG.

            One of the nosalises will grab you. Quickly tap the [E] key
            to fight your way free. Otherwise, you have to reload and
            start the fight again.

    !REDUX  You get a Duplet with a Stock

Wait for a nosalis to jump on the rail car. Kill it with your knife, revolver,
or SMG. Your companion gives you his <Duplet>, a double-barreled shotgun. Use
the LMB (left mouse button) to fire the left barrel and the RMB (right mouse
button) to fire the right barrel. One shot to the face should work. You can
unload with both barrels by using both mouse buttons at the same time. Continue
killing the nosalises that jump on the rail car.

You get knocked off the rail car. Sprint down the tunnel to safety.

    |  Riga Station was only the first step on my journey, but the  |
    |  caravan went no further. So, before parting ways, we drank   |
    |  to celebrate our survival. The vodka didn't drown my fear    |
    |  of traveling on to Polis alone. But I was about to find      |
    |  myself with an unexpected and notorious partner.             |
    |_______________________________________________________________|

You should be able to finish up the Metro Dweller Achievement in Riga as long
as you continue to talk to everybody, listen to conversations, and knock on
doors. There are also opportunities at Market Station to get the Metro Dweller
Achievement. The Armory is the last place you can work on the Metro Dweller
Achievement.

Enjoy some mushroom vodka.

            There's a prostitute loose in the station named Nikki. You can talk
!Spoiler    to her after you talk to Bourbon. If you want to encounter her
            later, you need to spend all your bullets before meeting her. After
you talk to Nikki, you lose all your bullets which could be quite a bit. Buy a
weapon or some filters. Pick up only the bullets that you need to empty your
pockets.  You do not need to do the Nikki encounter for any of the achievements
or the Enlightened ending.

    !REDUX  You get +75 BULLETS from the caravan leader
            You find +2 BULLETS instead of +1 BULLET
            Pick up the NOTE from the right end of the bar

A grateful caravan leader gives you +30 BULLETS. You can pick up +1 BULLET from
the unoccupied table in the bar and another +1 BULLET from the sink at the top
of the stairs.

    !REDUX  The wall locker is empty.

Go downstairs. Go south underneath the bar. There's a wall locker with 2 clips
of 5.45 ammo and 1 clip of shotgun ammo. Search by the stack of wooden pallets
for +1 BULLET. Look to the right of the filing cabinets for +1 BULLET.

    !REDUX You can now enter the room under the stairs. There's some lockers
           you can check out and a firing range. Using weapons at the firing
           range doesn't use up any of your ammo. There's nothing in the
           lockers.

    !MORAL GAIN     You gain a MORAL POINT for giving a bullet to one of the
                    beggars by the subway platform. You can give bullets to
                    the other beggars, but you only gain a MORAL POINT the
                    first time you're generous.

    !REDUX  Pick up the NOTE from the bench

Go out onto the subway platform. Go to the first bench. Crouch down and look
by the railings at the edge of the platform. There's a +1 BULLET between two
of the railings.

The open room behind the stairs has some traders where you can buy weapons,
supplies, and exchange ammo.

    !REDUX  The weapons merchant now sells a basic Revolver and Bastard.
            You can now purchase customizations for any weapon you carry.

    !MORAL POINT
    !Steam Achievement: Generous
    !Steam Achievement: Realist
Look for the little kid wearing a hat. He'll tell you that someone is looking
for you. The kid offers to lead you to the man for 1 bullet. Give the kid a
bullet if you want the !Steam Achievement Generous and to gain a MORAL POINT.
Refuse to give the kid a bullet for the !Steam Achievement Realist.

Go left to get +1 BULLET on top of one of the wooden rooms. Cross over the
wooden walkway. There's another +1 BULLET on the top bunk of the last open
room on the right. Drop down into the central trench. Look for an open door on
the right. Both bunks are occupied. There's a +1 BULLET on the floor at the
foot of the bottom bunk. Go to the far end. You can pick up +1 BULLET in the
latrine on the right (ewwww).

Go up the steps and go left. There's a +1 BULLET on the crate by the candle.

    !REDUX  Walk onto the bridge and turn around. There's a key hanging
            from a post you can grab. Look to the right. There's a SAFE
            on a crate to the right of the doorway. Inside the safe is
            +30 BULLETS.

Go over the bridge. Here you'll meet Nikki, Riga's famous prostitute.

You can give Nikki a bullet to make her move out the of the way. DO NOT follow
Nikki into her room. Doing so leads to an encounter where you lose ALL of your
Military Grade Ammo.

You can grab another +1 BULLET from the bottom bunk of the room with the
slightly open door. Go back over the bridge and go left to the middle bridge.
Crouch down by the open door and check by the boots for a hidden +1 BULLET
(it's actually by the bottom bunk).

Cross over the bridge to a small eating area. Here's the man that wants to
talk to you.

    !MORAL POINT
If you didn't let the kid guide you to Bourbon, you lose a MORAL POINT.

    !REDUX  Bourbon pays you +15 BULLETS
    !REDUX  Pick up the NOTE from the unoccupied table

Sit on the chair to talk to Bourbon. He gives you +10 BULLETS as an advance
payment. Grab the +1 BULLET from the unoccupied table.

Tell Bourbon when you're ready and he'll lead you to the cursed tunnels. Turn
on your flashlight and follow Bourbon into the dark tunnel. There's a +1 BULLET
on the crate to the left just after you go through the doorway. There's another
+1 BULLET on top of the electrical box at the T-intersection. Bourbon goes
right. Follow Bourbon out onto the tracks.

    |  As I entered the abandoned tunnels with Bourbon, I wondered   |
    |  if I'd been wrong to trust him. But the station gates were    |
    |  still sealed, and there was no telling when I'd have another  |
    |  chance to leave Riga.                                         |
    |________________________________________________________________|

    !REDUX  Lost Tunnels and the Bridge are now a single level with
            some changes. See the 2.2 Lost Tunnels Redux section.

Follow Bourbon down the abandoned tunnel. Look for a body on the right. You can
pick up some shotgun rounds and some 5.45 ammo. Continue down the tunnel.

    !REDUX  Bourbon doesn't mention the singing pipes

    !MORAL GAIN
Bourbon tells you about the singing pipes. Crouch down and wait by the pipe to
gain a MORAL POINT.

Look for a side tunnel to the left. There's a body with some shotgun ammo and
a grenade. Kill the two Lurkers. Don't fall down any holes in the floor.
There's another couple of bodies further in. One has some 5.45 ammo and
+2 BULLETS. The other has a Tihar, a silenced sniper rifle, and some ammo
for the sniper rifle. Swap your shotgun for the Tihar.

Go back to the main tunnel and follow Bourbon again. Go to the right of the
subway car and enter using the rear entrance. Move to the front of the subway
car. Crouch down and go into the control booth of the subway car. There's a
dead body with a revolver and some revolver ammo. Exit the subway car.

Bourbon finds some dead caravanners, apparently killed by bandits. There's a
throwing knife in the wooden boards. You can recover an arrow from one of the
bodies and some gun ammo near one of the backpacks.

Follow Bourbon into the tunnel on the right. This leads to a bandit base.
Search the cabinets in the first room for the following items: +3 BULLETS,
shotgun ammo, revolver ammo, 5.45 ammo, and a couple of arrows. There's a
throwing knife stuck in the table. Jump over the tripwire. Disarm the trap.
Loot a shotgun shell from the trap. Turn off your flashlight if you have
it turned on. Go into the next room.

Target the lamp on the floor and press the [E] key to turn it off. Hide by the
door. Bourbon kills the drunken bandit with a throwing knife. Loot the throwing
knife and ammo.

You need to kill the patrolling bandits in the big room. Bourbon goes into the
next room and hides. Don't follow him. Stay in the doorway and hit the first
patroller in the back with a throwing knife for a silent one-shot kill. Recover
the throwing knife from the body. Turn off the lamp. There's a second
patrolling bandit. Wait until he's walking on the left side of the room and
kill him with a throwing knife before he gets to the campfire. Recover the
throwing knife and loot the body and weapon for ammo. Go back to the entrance
and move to the other side of the room. There's one bandit sitting on the
ground near a lamp. Sneak up behind him and kill him with a throwing knife.

The rest of the bandits are all keeping an eye on one another. There are four
sitting around the campfire. Beyond the campfire are two more bandits facing
each other. Kill the remaining bandits in the big room. Go back and retrieve
any throwing knives and loot ammo from the bodies. There's +20 BULLETS and a
bunch of ammo on the backpack by the campfire. Swap out your sniper rifle for a
shotgun. Open the door for Bourbon. There are three more bandits in the next
room. Kill them, loot them, and open the other door for Bourbon to end the
level.

    |  Our bloody skirmish with the bandits was over. I had expected   |
    |  mutants and monsters...but how many more of my "fellow humans"  |
    |  would try to kill me before I reached Polis?                    |
    |__________________________________________________________________|

Grab the ammo by the electrical boxes to your right.  Jump over the box.
There's a +2 filter, a revolver, and more ammo at the end of the bridge. Jump
over the gap and go down the stairs. Put on your gas mask. Fight off a group of
snouts. Loot the ammo, +4 filter, and +9 BULLETS. Go across the walkway to the
next platform. Go up the stairs. Hop on the box to get inside the train car.
There's one crate full of ammo, some grenades, and +2 BULLETS. Another crate
has a couple of double-barrel shotguns. The third crate has squeaky dolls.
Click on one of the squeaky dolls for a Discovery Point. Exit the subway car.
There's another body to loot in front of the subway car that has +15 BULLETS.

Wait for the Hanza military trolley to leave the area to get a Discovery Point.
If you alert the trolley, you come under fire. The trolley leaves after a
couple of minutes and you get an Ignorance Point. Go down the stairs and cross
over to the next platform. Fight off more snouts. Don't follow Bourbon up the
stairs. Go across the bridge to the next platform. There's a body that you can
loot for some ammo. If your gas mask is damaged, you can swap it out for a new
one.

Go up the stairs. Hop up on the box on the right side of the subway car and
jump inside. Go down through the subway car to another platform. Run across the
walkway. Some snouts run up behind you so you can fight them on the lower
platform or join Bourbon on the upper platform.

Go up the stairs. Go across the bridge to the next platform. Kill the snouts.
Turn around and go back down the stairs. There's a body on the lower platform
that has a couple of Medkits, ammo, and a fresh Gas Mask. Go up the stairs. You
can't actually get into the last subway car on the upper platform, but you can
loot some ammo and +4 BULLETS by checking the open doors on each side of the
subway car.

The tunnel is blocked. Go down the stairs. Sprint through the tunnel. Disarm or
jump over the tripwire. Turn around and kill the snouts. Go back to the bottom
of the stairs. Grab the ammo. There's a fresh gas mask if yours is damaged. Go
back and join Bourbon.

    !REDUX  Bourbon doesn't mention the singing pipes

    !REDUX  You find +3 BULLETS instead of +2

Look for a side tunnel to the left. There's a body with some shotgun ammo and
a grenade. Kill the two Lurkers. Don't fall down any holes in the floor.
There's another couple of bodies further in. One has some 5.45 ammo and

Go back to the main tunnel and follow Bourbon again. Go to the right of the

car. Crouch down and go into the control booth of the subway car. There's a
dead body with some revolver ammo. Exit the subway car.

            The Throwing Knife is missing

Bourbon finds some dead caravanners, apparently killed by bandits. You can
recover an arrow from one of the bodies and some gun ammo near one of the
backpacks.

    !REDUX You pick up +5 BULLETS instead of +3

Follow Bourbon into the tunnel on the right. This leads to a bandit base.
Search the cabinets in the first room for the following items: +5 BULLETS,
shotgun ammo, revolver ammo, 5.45 ammo, and a couple of arrows. There's a
throwing knife stuck in the table. Jump over the tripwire. Disarm the trap.
Loot a shotgun shell from the trap. Turn off your flashlight if you have
it turned on. Go into the next room.

    !REDUX  Check the lockers along the wall for some ammo

    !REDUX Bourbon doesn't kill a bandit before going into the big room

    !REDUX  The bandits can now all be killed using sneak attacks. You also
            only have one throwing knife. There's one bandit with a lantern
            that walks by Bourbon's hiding spot, then stands by the crates by
            the lamp. Stay crouched and get close to him. Use [E] to knock
            him out or [V] to kill him.

            Next, knock out or kill the two bandits that patrol near the
            campfire.

            Wait for the bandits around the campfire to finish talking.
            Instead of staying around the campfire, they wander off in
            different directions. Stalk and knock out or kill each one.

            I used a throwing knife to kill the bandit that's sitting on
            the right side of the tunnel by the glowing mushrooms.

            Knock out or kill the bandit on the left side of the tunnel by
            the doorway.

            Bourbon moves up to the doorway once all the bandits are down.

            Sneak through the doorway and neutralize the bandit leaning
            against the wall. Sneak down the hallway and take care of the
            bandit that's walking around the room. Sneak around the wall
            and eliminate the last bandit that's sitting in a chair.

            Go back to the big tunnel. Loot the ammo from the backpack
            by the campfire. Open the SAFE on the right side of the
            tunnel by the glowing mushrooms. There's just some more ammo
            inside the safe.

            Go back into the side tunnel. Follow Bourbon through the red
            door. Go through the next doorway and look to the left. Take
            the NOTE on top of the electrical box.

    |  Market Station was just a little further, but Bourbon warned  |
    |  me that our path went through the "lost catacombs"...         |
    |________________________________________________________________|

Loot as many items and ammo as you can. There's a Gas Mask and a +3 filter. One
of the bodies has a Medkit. Look by the two bodies by the pipe on the left side
of the room for +4 BULLETS. There are three cut scenes where you see Bourbon
approaching and opening the gate at the end of a long tunnel. During the second
cutscene, you get pulled backwards. Run forward towards Bourbon and away from
the opening doors when this happens. During the third cutscene, run forward and
you'll grab onto the gate and, with a little help, you pull yourself and
Bourbon to safety. Congratulations! You just avoided dying to, uh, something.

Ignore the snouts behind you. You can take off your gas mask now. Go down the
tunnel. Go into the doorway on the right. Go to the right and hug the wall.
Walk along the ledge to the body. If you go the left, the platform collapses
and you can die. You can loot +3 BULLETS and some ammo from the body. Swap out
your ordinary Revolver for the <Revolver with Extended Barrel>. Go back to the
tunnel and go to the right.

Loot the body for ammo and +20 BULLETS. Put on your gas mask. Jump down through
the hole in the floor. There's a throwing knife on the body in the corner.
There's some sniper ammo nearby. Exit the room. Go to the left for +4 BULLETS
and a gas mask. You can only pick up the gas mask if the one you are wearing is
damaged. Jump down into the liquid. I don't want to call it water since it's
green. Go to the other side of the room and go up the stairs. You can loot a +4
filter and some shotgun ammo from another body by the support pillar. Go
straight across from the stairs to find a ladder on the wall to the right that
goes to the upper level. Take off your gas mask. Take out your weapon. Approach
Bourbon by the gate.

Then, the nosalises come. Snouts like to circle around you so be sure to check
behind you and to the sides during the fight. You can crouch down and use the
knife. For the shotgun, hit snouts when they get in close for a one shot kill.
For the SMG, try to kill them before they get to you. If you get surrounded or
start taking damage, move to another area. Try to stay near Bourbon as he uses
his automatic shotgun to kill snouts. Use a Medkit when you start to see red
around the edges and can hear your heartbeat. Afterwards, Bourbon "negotiates"
entrance into Market Station. Go through the gate.

    |  I'd never seen a Market like this--you could buy almost   |
    |  anything. But, Bourbon owed money to the Hanza sentries,  |
    |  and was anxious to leave.                                 |
    |____________________________________________________________|

If you haven't gotten the Metro Dweller Achievement yet, continue to talk to
people and check doors. Listen to conversations.

Look in the crates on the left side of the room for a +1 BULLET. After a couple
of minutes, the Hanza sentries let you into the station. Open the rightmost
locker just past the sentries for a +1 BULLET. Turn to the left and enter the
subway car. There's another +1 BULLET straight ahead. Go through the curtain
into the main part of the subway car. Immediately turn around for a +1 BULLET
on the bunk bed. Go to the other end of the subway car. Go past the woman
that's sitting down. Look to the left for a +1 BULLET in the wooden window box.
Go to the end of the subway car. Turn around before going through the curtain
for another +1 BULLET. Exit the subway car by the toilet. I saw that! Don't
look in the toilet. That's disgusting. What are you doing?! There's nothing in
there. Bourbon meets you by the kid that's chalk-drawing on the wall. He gives
you +15 BULLETS to buy some filters.

Go into the next room. Look to the right by the crates stacked near the radio
operator for a +1 BULLET between the crates and the wall. The next room is the
bar area. Go to the left for a +1 BULLET on a ladder. Go to the bar area on the
other side of the room. There's a +1 BULLET on the high bar and another +1
BULLET on one of the tables. Go to the bar and smoke out of the hookah for a
Discovery Point. Go into the next room, the main market area. Go to the bench
with three pieces of luggage where two men are sitting down. Look at the
luggage for a +1 BULLET. Look at the stack of crates between the merchant
selling housewares and the trader selling dirt for +1 BULLET. Go to the other
side of the market. Look under the butcher's block for +1 BULLET. Talk to the
beggar on the left side of the market. Give the beggar a bullet for a Discovery
Point.

Go into the next room. Go right and hop up by the vehicle. Go to the corner and
drop down behind the vehicle. There's some 5.45 ammo and a +1 BULLET on the
floor by the rear wheel. Look on top of the white cabinet between the two
vehicles for another bullet behind the fuel can. The Ammo Exchange guy, Weapons
Trader, and Supplies Trader are on the opposite side of the room. Buy a couple
of filters.

            Go back to the bar area and approach Bourbon. If you didn't buy a
!Glitch     filter, Bourbon gives you a +4 filter. He'll let you know that his
            "negotiations" were a success and you can leave the station. To
avoid a major glitch, circle around Bourbon while he's talking so that Bourbon
is facing the turnstile when he finishes talking. Don't move too far away. Let
Bourbon finish talking. He should walk through the turnstile to the gate after
your journal updates. If Bourbon turns around after he finishes talking, he
never walks to the turnstile and you get trapped in Market Station. Once you
walk through the turnstile, you can't go back. Bourbon talks to the gate
commander and gets him to open the gate. Go outside. Follow Bourbon to let the
adventure continue.

    |  When we emerged into the ruins of Moscow, I felt both fear and  |
    |  sorrow. But, after a life underground, I also saw strange       |
    |  beauty in the dark skies and frozen landscape. "So, that's the  |
    |  dead city," grunted Bourbon. "Welcome home, Artyom."            |
    |__________________________________________________________________|

Hold down the [G] key to put on your Gas Mask. Follow Bourbon to find a dead
stalker. Loot the ammo near the body. The gas mask by the body is broken. Go to
the side of the room with the telephones. Go left into the room for +2 BULLETS
and some ammo. Look inside the square booth for some 5.45 ammo and a <Bastard
with silencer>. Look behind the red counter for a filter. Look for an open
doorway on the other side of the room. There's a spiked log trap. You can get
on the stairs and shoot the rope or the log to set off the trap. Go upstairs to
find RANGER CACHE #1. There's a couple of arrows, a Gas Mask, and a crate with
a bunch of ammo plus a +2 filter. Go to the other end of the building by the
broken wall. Look out the window on the left for a Discovery Point. Go to the
right edge. Jump down on top of the roof of the lower room. Grab the ammo and +
5 BULLETS.

Go to Bourbon. He should be waiting for you by the doors. He kicks open a door
and goes outside. There's a winged demon above you and to the right. Follow
Bourbon. Hop up on the car and jump across the gap to the other side. Except
you don't quite make it. Get out of the irradiated water and go up to the
ground level. Bourbon tells you to meet him near the air shaft. Take out your
journal.

Follow the compass to the building across from the building you just exited. Go
up the stairs into the building. Take out your weapon. There's a dead body with
a lot of ammo and +5 BULLETS. Look for a doorway in the corner of the room.
There are a couple of nosalises loose in the building. You'll encounter one at
the doorway. The other may come up behind you or attack you later on.

Go back to the first body in the lobby. Jump on top of the body. Jump onto the
ledge. Crouch down and you can get into the barricaded room. The room is very
radioactive so be prepared to use a Medkit. There's some sniper ammo and a
Tihar. Jump on top of the vending machine to get out of the room.

Go down the short hallway and go to the left. There's another body with some
ammo, and a +3 filter. Go towards the desk and go to the right. Look behind the
overturned desk in the corner for some 5.45 ammo.

Go down the hallway and through the gates to the stairwell. If you look under
the stairs there's some shotgun ammo and a Gas Mask. Then, the nosalises came.
Fight your way up the stairs. Go into the room with the desks. Enjoy the freaky
whispering and hallucinations. Go through the broken wall into the bathroom.
Exit the bathroom to a hallway. You get a brief glimpse of a Dark One. Go down
the hallway and get on top of the elevator. Drop down through the open access
panel. Here's RANGER CACHE #2. There's +6 BULLETS, sniper ammo, throwing
knives, a +5 filer, a +4 filter, and a silenced sniper rifle. You also get a
Discovery Point. Go back to the elevator shaft. Crouch down and drop down to
the bottom of the shaft. You can get the drop on the two nosalises looking out
the windows.

You're back in the lobby of the building. Go back upstairs to the hallway with
the elevator. Go into the room on the right. You can pick up some shotgun ammo
underneath one of the desks. Go back into the hallway. Exit the building
through the broken wall. Go to the left by the wall. Crouch down and look under
the slab for some sniper ammo. There's a nosalis on top of a garage to the
right. Then, the nosalises come. Fight off the nosalises. After the fight, you
can go back inside and swap out your gas mask if your mask gets damaged.

    !Glitch
Go downhill and go around the wall. Go right and go uphill. If you jump here
you fall through the world. There's a body with some ammo at the top of the
incline.

Go down to the ground and go to the right and past the garages. Look in the
back of the white vehicle for +2 BULLETS. Open the dumpster for some arrows and
a Medkit. Go into the next building. There's a nosalis sleeping by a body. Kill
the nosalis. The body inside the building has a Medkit and revolver ammo. Exit
the building. Go into the white truck to find RANGER CACHE #3 with ammo and a
gas mask. The filter may or may not be usable. Exit the truck and go left. Go
towards the playground. Enter the building by hopping through the unblocked
window. RANGER CACHE #4 is inside the building with +4 BULLETS, a +3 filter,
and some ammo. Jump onto the couch then jump onto the shelf blocking the window
to grab the ammo on top of the shelf.

Exit the building and go into the playground. You get a vision of pre-war
children in the playground. If you shoot one of the children or towards a
child, the vision immediately ends and you hear a Dark One whisper, "His
path..into nowhere" and you get an immoral point. If you fire a weapon into the
air the Dark One says, "wants to kill...does not understand" and you get an
immoral point. If you stand still and wait for the vision to end, you hear a
Dark One whisper, "What awaits them?" and you get a Discovery Point. If you run
through the playground before the vision ends, you get an immoral point and no
whispering. If you look over by the swings after the vision, you can get a
glimpse of a Dark One. If you fired a weapon, you have to fight some nosalises.
If you remained still without firing weapon, you can avoid the nosalises. Go
through the broken fence in the corner by the cars. Go to the right. Inside the
white truck is a dead body with some ammo. Exit the truck and go to the right.

Go into the building. Around the corner at the bottom of the steps is a body
with some ammo, +30 BULLETS, and a +2 filter. Turn off your flashlight. Go into
the main room. Go to the right and look for a doorway in the corner. Inside the
back room is RANGER CACHE #5 with arrows, sniper ammo, and +2 BULLETS. Finding
this cache is good for a Discovery Point. Go into the other room that's to the
left of the steps. Go the left side of the room. You can climb up the rubble to
find some ammo tucked in the corner.

Then, the nosalises come. Kill all the nosalises. If you are having problems
getting your gas mask broken during the fight, run back to the barricaded room
by the playground. Go into the corner by the office chairs. You can safely take
off the gas mask during the fight and survive without choking if the gas mask
gets broken during the fight. If you need to replace your gas mask, backtrack
to the ranger cache that was inside the truck. Afterwards, return to the
building where cache #5 was located.

Exit the building through one of the windows. Go to the right. Follow along the
wall of the building and go around the corner. Go down to find a body and some
ammo. Go back and stop by the blue telephone. There's a lamppost going down
into the water. Go down the lamppost and sprint to your right to the body to
grab the shotgun ammo. Go back to the lamppost and use it to climb up out of
the radioactive water. You may have to use a Medkit if you take too much
radiation damage. At the top of the lamppost go to the right. Go down the
boards to the ledge that's right above the water. Walk along the ledge. There's
another corpse with some ammo. You get a Discovery Point for finding this body.

Go back inside the building. Go to the right and exit the building using the
window in the corner by the rubble that has a wooden board leading out of the
building. Go to the left towards the sign that points towards Dry Station. Go
around the corner of the building. Go down into the ruined subway entrance.
There's a body with +2 BULLETS, a +4 filter, and a gas mask. Go towards the
water and go to the left. There are two sticky grenades in the back of a truck.
Let's call this RANGER CACHE #6. Cross the irradiated water to another ruined
subway entrance with steps going up. Equip a sticky grenade. Turn off your
flashlight.

A demon lands nearby and starts feeding on a body. Sneak up behind the demon
and throw the sticky grenade at the demon when you get close. If you're lucky
the grenade sticks to and kills the demon. Turn around and go to the van. Look
inside the van for a supply case containing shotgun ammo and a gas Mask. Look
through the gate for a glimpse of a Dark One checking out a body. Check the
body the demon was snacking on for ammo. Go past the body and down the steps.
Look for a board sticking out of the wall on the right. Use that to get to a
ruined area where there's a body in the corner with some ammo and +5 BULLETS.

Turn around and look for a pipe leaning against the wall and leading up towards
the bus. Crouch down and crawl up the pipe. Stand up and turn around so you're
facing the ledge. Jump onto the ledge and go up to the doorway. The next room
is radioactive. Crouch down to enter the room and grab the arrows and the
Helsing from the body. You may need to use a Medkit while you are looting the
body. Crouch down to get out of the room before the radiation kills you. Go
back to the body the demon was devouring.

Go up the rubble to your left and get into the building. Disarm the grenade
trap. Go into the next room on the right. Avoid the spiked log Ewok trap. Jump
over the shotgun tripwire by the filing cabinets. Turn around and disarm that
trap. Go into the next room to find RANGER CACHE #7. There's ammo, 2 Medkits, a
gas mask, +10 BULLETS, and two +5 filters on the table. Play the tape recorder
to hear an audio journal from Hunter and get a Discovery Point. Go back to the
room where you first entered the building. Go down the stairs to end the level.

Loot the body that's right in front of you. Turn around and go through the hole
in the wall. There's another body at the top of the stairs with ammo and +15
BULLETS. Go back to the first body. Go through the doorway into a flooded
section of the building. Use the boards to get to the next room. Grab the
shotgun ammo at the bottom of the stairs. Go up the stairs to loot more shotgun
ammo, a +1 filter, and +2 BULLETS from a corpse. Go down the stairs and go to
the left into another flooded room. To the left is a large crack in the wall.
Run through the crack to find RANGER CACHE #8. There's some revolver ammo, +5
BULLETS, a +2 filter, and a +5 filter. Go back into the flooded room. Use the
boards to go across the water. There's a third corpse with some ammo and +20
BULLETS. Go up the boards. There's a car to the left. Drop down to find another
body with some ammo. Go back up to the surface.

Go straight ahead to the blue object. Turn right at the corner of the building
and go down the alley. At the end of the alley by a dumpster is a body with
some ammo and a +5 filter. Watch out for the nosalis. Exit the alley and go to
the right. Around the corner is Bourbon going through the pockets of a corpse.
Loot anything that Bourbon missed. Loot the other corpse by the gates.

Follow Bourbon. Open the closed dumpster on your right to get some sniper ammo.
There's also a Tihar, a silenced sniper rifle. After the dumpsters go to the
right. Go down the stairs to find +2 BULLETS and some ammo on yet another dead
body. I couldn't pick up the filter. Catch up to Bourbon. Follow him up some
steps to a white truck. There's an opportunity to kill a demon here. Take out a
sticky grenade. Go past the white truck. Throw the sticky grenade at the demon
as soon as it lands on the top of the truck.

Look to the left and go past the small shed to the wall. There's a crumpled
body with some revolver ammo and <Revolver with silencer>. You can stay by the
wall here and kill any nosalises that jump over the wall. Run back to Bourbon.
Hold off the nosalises. Don't let Bourbon get killed. A demon will fly in and
attack. Follow Bourbon through the fence when he runs away. If you already
killed the demon on top of the truck, just immediately run to Bourbon. If you
didn't kill the demon on top of the truck, stay by the dumpsters and you can
use a sticky grenade to kill the demon when it lands. You must immediately run
to Bourbon after tossing the sticky grenade so you don't get caught in the
explosion. Bourbon helps you into the air shaft to end the level.

    |  As we went underground, it struck me that my city was now a   |
    |  foreign and hostile place. I felt safe here, in the darkness  |
    |  of the Metro more so, when Bourbon claimed to have friends    |
    |  at Dry Station.                                               |
    |________________________________________________________________|

Take off your Gas Mask. Turn around and loot all of Bourbon's stuff. You can
take his <Automatic Shotgun> from his pack. His <Kalash> is at the end of the
air shaft. You won't be able to get back into the vent. Take out your Throwing
Knives. We're going to sneak through Dry Station. Drop down through the same
grate that Bourbon used. Go straight ahead and blow out the lantern. Get away
from the connecting tunnel. Kill the first patroller when he goes into the
connecting tunnel. Move up and loot the body. Look to the right. Kill the
bandit sitting in the chair. Blow out the lamp, loot that body, and get the
ammo from the table. There's also a <Bastard with silencer> on the table.

Go back to the main tunnel. You can loot some arrows from the tall wooden
target board. Go into the connecting tunnel on the other side and extinguish
the lamp. Loot the ammo on top of the crates. Go to the left and blow out the
lamp. Go into the subway car. Blow out the lamps. There's a Medkit, an arrow,
and a grenade by the first lamp. There's a throwing knife by the second lamp.
Exit the subway car and head towards another lamp. Crouch down and turn it off.
Go down to the foot of the ramp. One of the guards runs past you to the
bathrooms. Sneak to the bathrooms and kill him. Turn around and sneak up to the
sandbags. Stay out of sight of the bandit on the couch. Wait for the bandits to
finish their conversation. Use a throwing knife on the guy sitting on the
couch. Climb over the sandbags. Blow out the lantern. Loot the body.

There is one more bandit on patrol. There's two rat racers in the central
tunnel. There's another group that you can hear talking. Ignore all those
bandits. Climb over the sandbags and go to the doorway to the right. There's a
tripwire just past the doorway. Look to the right to disarm the trap. Sneak up
and blow out the lamp. The nearest bandit gets killed by an arrow. Loot the
body. Stand up and kill the bandit that's across from you.

There's another bandit on patrol above you. Get in the corner of the wall and
the sandbags. Face the broken crate and the doorway. Crouch down and watch the
bandit. You want to hit him in the back with a throwing knife when he's on the
platform. You should be able to hit him through the railing. If you mess it up,
just reload the last checkpoint and try again. Next, watch the bandit to the
left. When he's walking away, sneak across and blow out the lamp. Sneak into
the kitchen area and loot the body. There's a Medkit on the shelf by the table.
Don't sneak too far into the kitchen or you'll get spotted.

Turn around and sneak through the gate. Go to the right and stand by the couch.
Turn around to face a connecting tunnel. Wait for the bandit on patrol to enter
the tunnel. Use a throwing knife to kill him. Loot the body. Go through the
connecting tunnel. You'll see a bunch of boxes to the right. Look for a narrow
gap between the boxes.

Welcome to the box maze. Climb over a box. Crouch down and crawl under some
boxes. Take the first left, go left, go right twice. Climb over some boxes.
Take the first right then go right again. Turn around and kill the bandit using
a throwing knife or a silenced weapon. Loot the body for some ammo and +4
BULLETS. Use the hookah. The bandit is carrying an <Automatic Shotgun with a
Bayonet>.

Okay, now to exit the box maze. Turn around and go right two times. Follow the
path. Go straight as far as possible. The path goes to the left. Just keep
going and you'll exit the box maze. Go to the right. Go between the wall on
your left and the boxes on the right. Hop up on the bench. Sneak towards a
connecting tunnel. Stop when you see the feet of the bandit to the left. Move
backwards when the bandit stands up and wait. The bandit gets taken out by
another arrow. Loot the body. Blow out the lamp.

Look across the main tunnel. There's a bandit on patrol on the wooden walkway
above the floor. Wait for the bandit to stop at the end of the walkway and use
a throwing knife to kill him. Creep out into the main tunnel. Look to the right
and use a throwing knife on the bandit. Sneak around and kill the bandit
sitting by the fire. Loot the bodies. Jump up on the two crates with the
barrel. Jump onto the upper walkway. Sneak down to the doorway. Look into the
room and silently kill the bandit. You can find some sniper ammo on the table
and +4 BULLETS by the record player on the upper platform.

You can kill the remaining bandits. There's one bandit on patrol. There are two
bandits racing rats in the main tunnel. There are three bandits eating in a
dining area by the kitchen. I couldn't find a reliable way of killing the
patroller without alerting the rat racers or the bandits in the dining area.

Go towards the lighted gate at the end of the main tunnel. There's a huge hole
in the floor. Put on the gas mask and drop down. There's a Medkit and some ammo
you can pick up behind the ladder. Don't forget to remove the Gas Mask after
you climb up the ladder. Go through the door into the next room to find out the
fate of Bourbon. A ranger drops down from the overhead vent. This is Khan.
Sweep the room for ammo. There's +25 BULLETS on the table in the center of the
room. One corner of the room has a nosalis head trophy. Look behind the pillow
on the bed for +2 BULLETS. Follow Khan out of the room to end the level.

Go to [3.2 Ghosts].

You can sneak through Dry Station without killing any bandits. Take off the Gas
Mask. Loot the ammo from Bourbon's Pack. You can take Bourbon's <Automatic
Shotgun> and <Kalash>. You won't be able to get back into the vent. Drop down
through the same grate that Bourbon used. Sneak across to the wooden board and
take the three arrows. Sneak into the connecting tunnel with the lamp. Loot the
ammo on top of the crates. Sneak into the left tunnel and go to the left. You
can loot an arrow, Medkit, grenade, and throwing knife inside the subway car.
Turn around and sneak up to the lamp by the ramp. Blow out the lamp and go down
to the bottom of the ramp. Wait for the guard to run past you. Sneak up the
ramp and go to the doorway on the left.

Disarm the shotgun tripwire in the doorway. Blow out the lamp on the left. The
guard gets killed automatically. Loot the body and recover the arrow. Wait for
the three guards to finish their conversation. Sneak up and use a silenced
weapon to shoot out the overhead light on the right. Stand up and shoot out the
lamp on the left. There is one guard on patrol above you. Wait for that guard
to get to the middle. Sneak to the left and go through the metal gate.
Immediately go to the right side behind the wooden barrier. Turn around and
face the connecting tunnel. Wait for the patroller to walk towards you before
sneaking into the connecting tunnel.

Go to the right and look for a gap between the boxes. Climb over a box to get
into the box maze. Take the first two lefts. Go around the corner and climb
over some boxes. Go straight ahead as far as possible. Go right, left, right.
Go straight again until you can only go left. Follow the path to get out of the
box maze. Go to the right and hop up on the bench. Sneak down towards the end
until you can see a pair of boots in front of you. Wait until the bandit stands
up. Move backwards a little and the bandit gets killed automatically. Peek
around the corner and use a silenced weapon to shoot the lamp. Loot the body.
Exit the connecting tunnel and go to the left. Quickly go to the door that's
under the lightbulb.

Go through the door into the next room to find out the fate of Bourbon. A
ranger drops down from the overhead vent. This is Khan. Sweep the room for
ammo. There's +25 BULLETS on the table in the center of the room. One corner of
the room has a nosalis head trophy. Look behind the pillow on the bed for +2
BULLETS. Follow Khan out of the room to end the level.

    |  fighting the bandits, I did sense someone helping me from  |
    |  the shadows. Khan assured me that Bourbon's fate was not   |

    |_____________________________________________________________|

This level is easy. Listen to Khan and follow his directions.

Follow Khan down the hallway to an abandoned subway tunnel. Listen to the pipes
for a Discovery Point. Go down the tunnel. There's a dead person here with a
Duplet and some ammo. Make sure your flashlight is lit. Catch up to Khan. Watch
the freaky silhouettes. The body on the right has a grenade. Before you get to
the subway car look to the right for +5 BULLETS on a crate. Climb into the
subway car. Watch the freaky shadow play.

Follow Khan. Get onto the platform on the right side of the tunnel to avoid the
train. For the next part just stay very close behind Khan to avoid the
defenders. You get a Discovery Point for getting past the defenders. You can
skip the Discovery Point by waiting after you get past the defenders instead of
staying right behind Khan.

You leave the tunnel and go into some rooms. In the L-shaped room is a body
with a clip of 5.45 ammo. In the next room there's a skeleton with some ammo to
the right. Across from the skeleton is a wooden crate inside a cart. Jump up on
the box next to the cart. Look into the crate for some ammo and a Kalash.
Follow the blood trail by the door to find a body in the corner with some
shotgun ammo and a grenade. Finding this body also nets a Discovery Point.

The next room is empty except for a Revolver. Avoid the radioactive mushroom
patch. You can hear growling coming from the next room. Then, the nosalises
come. Open the door and kill the nosalises. The deceased in the next room was
carrying a Duplet and some ammo. Look by the cart for +15 BULLETS next to the
backpack. Run past the radioactive mushroom and drop down into a lower tunnel
to end the level.

    |  Khan was an unusual man...but I suppose he was also a man of  |
    |  his time, moving between the dark and the light, searching    |
    |  for answers buried in the rubble.                             |
    |________________________________________________________________|

Run down the small tunnel to another subway tunnel. There's a body with some
ammo and a Bastard SMG. Follow Khan down the tunnel and stop when he says not
to move. Stay behind Khan and watch the pretty anomaly. You get a Discovery
Point. When Khan moves, you can move. Look to the right. The anomaly moves past
you in the other tunnel. You get another Discovery Point. There's some shotgun
ammo and a Medkit by the subway car. Hop up on the electrical boxes to get to
the other side of the subway tunnel. Go to the right instead of following Khan.
There's a dead body tucked behind some electrical panels that's good for a
Discovery Point. Loot the ammo from the body. There's also a <Revolver with
rifle stock>.

Join Khan by the subway car. There's a dead body with lots of ammo by the
subway car. Then, the nosalises come. You know what to do. Then, the anomaly
comes and fries all the nosalises. Yayyy! Go through the subway car. Don't
follow Khan into the other tunnel. Go straight ahead towards the glow. There's
some arrows, a Medkit, and +4 BULLETS by the human remains. You also pick up a
Discovery Point. Go back and go into the other tunnel. Go left to the subway
car. A dead guy has dropped his Revolver. Turn around and join Khan at the
gate. There's an arm and a suitcase on the left. There's +15 BULLETS by the
arm, +5 BULLETS sticking out of the suitcase, and some ammo. Get next to the
rail car. Press the [E] key to climb on board. Off we go to the next level.

    |  Khan led me into Cursed Station. The name was no accident -  |
    |  its people were locked in an endless war for survival.       |
    |_______________________________________________________________|

Follow Khan to the defenders. Loot the ammo from the cache. There's also two
grenades, a Medkit, and a total of +5 BULLETS. Khan tells you what to do. You
have to close the airlock and blow up the left tunnel to stop the nosalises.
Listening to Khan gets you a Discovery Point. There's a stationary machine gun
that you can use to kill nosalises until the machine gun ammo runs out. You can
do this to work towards the !Steam Achievement Heavy Metal (kill 15 enemies
using stationary machine gun). Most of the nosalises attack from the left.

Turn off your flashlight. Go into the tunnel on the right. Go right to the end
of the tunnel. Loot the +3 BULLETS and ammo from the corpse. Hop down onto the
tracks. Get up against the right wall away from the platform. Crouch down and
sneak to the other end of the tunnel. This avoids getting attacked by
nosalises. About two thirds of the way down the tunnel there's a body by a fire
on the platform that you can loot for some 5.45 ammo. The demolition team is up
on the platform at the end of the tunnel. Grab the bomb and +2 BULLETS. There's
a Medkit if you need one. Kill any nosalises that attack you.

Turn around and take the first connecting tunnel on the right into the main
tunnel. There's a body with +2 BULLETS and some ammo. There's a hole in the
wall, but it's guarded by ghosts. Turn around and head towards the defenders.
In the main tunnel there's a body with some revolver ammo. The central part of
the main tunnel has tents. There's a body with 5.45 ammo. Go into the left
tunnel by going to the right when you're facing the defenders. There's a dead
body next to a couple of crates. There's +2 BULLETS on top of the crates. Go to
the right and go down the left tunnel away from the defenders. You'll come
across a body with some ammo on the platform. Drop down to the tracks. At the
second wooden structure there's a nosalis waiting for you to the left. Continue
to the end of the tunnel. There are supports on either side of the tunnel.
Target one of the supports and use the [E] key to plant the bomb. Immediately
turn around and sprint down the tunnel as far as possible.

Go into the main tunnel to the tent area. There are three staircases on the
right side of the main tunnel. Go up any of the staircases. You'll need the Gas
Mask at the top of the stairs. There's a body at the top of the center
staircase with ammo and a Medkit. There's another body in front of the
escalators with ammo and +4 BULLETS. There are three supports. Press [E] key
near any of the supports to plant a bomb. Run down the stairs. Don't get caught
under the airlock when it closes..

Khan meets with you. Follow him to get past the ghosts that were blocking the
hole in the wall. This leads to a shrine on top of a ventilation fan. There are
three candles on the ground in front of a lantern. Two of the candles have +2
BULLETS for a total of +4 BULLETS. Khan opens a door in the floor for you.
Climb down the ladder to end the level.

This is the last station where you can get the Metro Dweller Achievement. The
last two friendly stations, Hole Station and Polis, don't have any doors to
check or conversations.

Look to the right. Press the [E] key to turn the valve. This shuts off the
steam in front of the vent. Crouch down and crawl through the vent to the
subway tunnel. Go down the subway tracks to the gate. The guards let you in.
Continue down the subway tunnel to the platform. Go all the way to the end of
the platform. Pick up +3 BULLETS by the oil drums and wooden pallets. Turn
around and go through the gate. Go straight across to the subway car. Go right
and go down to the end. Grab the +3 BULLETS that are top of a wooden crate.
Turn around and go back towards the ammo exchange booth. Go to the left of the
booth and go through the door. You get arrested! The comedian makes a break for
it and gets you away from the arresting guards.

Hold down the [SHIFT] key and sprint after the comedian. When he says duck,
crouch down and follow him. When he stands up, you stand up. Sprint after him
down through the station. When you go around the corner look to the right for +
3 BULLETS on a crate. Quickly grab them before the guards can catch you. Keep
following the comedian through a doorway. He'll tell you to run up some stairs
to the left. Go up the stairs onto a walkway. The guards have you cornered. You
jump off the walkway to safety.

Exit Andrew the Blacksmith's room and go to the right. There's +3 BULLETS on a
crate. Turn around and go towards the guard. There's a minor glitch here where
you can walk through the closed door on the right. Go through the doorway past
the guard. Keep going through the station until you catch up to the Blacksmith.
There are three traders on the left and two traders on the right.

Crouch down and look at the right foot of the ladder. Pick up the +3 BULLETS.
The rail car is pushed over the top of the hole. Press the [E] key to climb up
the ladder and hide in the luggage hold. The rail car gets moved onto the main
subway tracks. Enjoy the ride!

Lalalala. Just riding along in the bottom of a rail car. Yeah, knew that was
going to happen. Now there are two main ways to proceed through this level. You
can sneak through the entire level without killing anybody to get the !Steam
Achievement Invisible Man. The other way is to kill enemies which allows you to
get the !Steam Achievement Rescue Ranger. If you kill everybody then you can
get the !Steam Achievement Hedge-hopper.

Go down the tunnel towards the rail cars. Go to the left side of the rail cars
and go down the stairs. Go straight ahead to a walkway. Look for a ramp going
down to the left. Go down the ramp and blow out the lantern. Sneak towards the
platform where two soldiers are interrogating a prisoner. Wait for both
soldiers to leave the platform. Move up onto the platform. Go to the lantern.
There's a break in the railing. Jump down onto the pipe.

An alternate way to start the level is to wait for the soldiers to disembark
from the train and go down the stairs on the left side of the train. Sneak onto
the stairs. You can get a Discovery Point if you stay on the stairs and listen
to the two guards by the campfire on the lower level of the bridge. The
Discovery Point is not necessary and can make it hard to sneak past the two
guards, especially without the Sneaking Suit.

Go to the left. Jump over the gap. Jump down onto the top of a ventilation
shaft. Go straight and jump onto the metal platform attached to the wall. Jump
over another gap to an even smaller metal platform with a railing. Turn to the
right and move along the top of the pipe. Hop onto the perpendicular pipe to
the left. Move up the pipe. Jump over the narrow gap onto a second pipe. Turn
right onto the narrow metal beam.

Go across the metal beam to the wall. Hop up onto the metal walkway with the
railings. Go left along the ventilation shaft to the opposite wall. There's a
dead body with some ammo and a Gas Mask. Turn to the left and jump down onto
the metal balcony. Jump down onto the pipe. Turn towards the glowing fungus on
the wall. Follow the pipes down to the ground. Put on your gas mask.

To avoid detection, go to the right wall and go straight. About halfway across
there's a guard with a spotlight watching the ground on the left side. Go to
the left wall once you get past the spotlight. Disarm the trap. Move past the
trap and go right past the rubble to the right wall. Disarm the trap. Turn to
the left and move towards the glowing mushroom patch. Go to the right and
disarm the trap. Go past the trap and go to the left wall to disarm another
trap. There is one final trap in front of the glowing pipe. Go into the glowing
pipe. Climb up the ladder on the right side of the wall.

Take off your gas mask. Go down the pipe and climb up a second ladder. Blow out
the lamp. There are two guards across from you and one guard on patrol.
Unfortunately, sneaking to the crates or opening the wall locker alerts the
standing guard to your presence. Do not move forward as this alerts the
standing guard, too. Wait for the guard on patrol to stand by the other two
guards. Sneak into the passageway and go left. Go down to the end of the
passageway and go left. Immediately go up the stairs.

Watch out for the broken glass on the ground by the doorway. Three soldiers
will run past the doorway. A couple of seconds later a fourth soldier walks
past the doorway. Go through the doorway and go to the right along the tracks.
Stay against the right wall of the tunnel. Get past the lighted area. Blow out
the lamp on the right side of the tunnel. Move to the left side of the tunnel
to avoid the armored trolley. Hide in the shadows when you hear the armored
trolley coming down the tracks.

Move up to the next lamp on the left side of the tunnel. Stay in the shadows.
Wait for the armored trolley to move away from the guard. Move up and blow out
the lamp, then immediately move to the right side of the tunnel to avoid the
guard. Move down the tracks and look for the sandbags on the right side. Move
onto the wooden platform. Turn to the right and drop down to the ground. Move
to the left to avoid the nearest guard. Move along the left wall to avoid the
soldiers. Move forward as far as possible. Go to the right. Climb up the ladder
to the tracks.

There is one standing guard and one patroller to the left. There's another
patroller to the right. Sneak across the metal beam to the tracks. Otherwise,
you fall down to the lower area. Watch the guard on the right. When he walks
away, sneak out onto the tracks and follow him. Move to the right side of the
tracks to avoid him. Wait for him to walk away from you. Cross over to the left
side of the tracks and move towards the next guard. Look for the ramp on the
left side of the tracks. Go up the ramp and through the door into a large room.
Just as you enter the large room there's a supply crate to the right with an
<Automatic Shotgun>, +10 BULLETS, and some ammo. There's a Medkit in the left
corner of the room. Open the door under the light to end the level.

Go to [4.2 Trolley Combat].

Turn around and head down the tunnel. Blow out any lamps along the way.
Silently kill the two guards. Go down by the campfire. You can get Nightvision
Goggles and +3 BULLETS from the wall locker. You get a Discovery Point for
taking the bullets. Turn around and blow out the lamp nearest the rail car.
Sneak around the right side of the rail car. Hide behind the barrel. Follow the
guard when he walks away from the rail car. Get to the right railing and sneak
up to the crate that's past the fire. Turn around and wait for the guard. Kill
him with a throwing knife. Turn around and kill the second guard when he's
standing by the campfire by the vehicle. Blow out any lamps. There's +4 BULLETS
on one of the crates on the right side of the tracks. There's some sniper ammo
and a Tihar in the wrecked subway car. You can snipe the two guards on the
opposite tracks.

Sneak back to the rail car. Go on the left side of the rail car opposite the
campfire. Go to the top of the stairs. There are two guards on patrol on the
lower platform. You can listen to their conversation to learn about the tunnel
under the bridge and get a Discovery Point. Kill both guards silently. There's
a supply case by the campfire with ammo and a <Revolver with silencer>. Go down
the ramp on the left. Blow out the lantern. Approach the platform where two of
the soldiers are interrogating a deserter. You get a Discovery Point for
learning about the manhole. Silently kill both soldiers.

Go to the left to the stairs. Quickly go to the top of the stairs and go left
into the tunnel. Don't touch the generator as this will alert the soldiers. You
get a Discovery Point for listening to the soldiers talking about the suicide
bombers. Stand by the doorway in the tunnel. When the soldiers are done
talking, kill the guard that walks into the tunnel. Go down the stairs. Put on
the gas mask. Go to the end of the passageway for a Discovery Point. There's an
<Automatic Shotgun with Bayonet> by the body. Go back upstairs and take off the
gas mask. Kill the two wounded soldiers on the right for the Hedge-hopper
achievement.

Let's silently kill the rest of the Communist soldiers. Kill the guard that
stops at the bottom of the stairs on the right. Kill the second patroller when
he stops by the sandbags. Blow out the lamp by the table and pick up the 5.45
ammo. Kill the next solider on the right that's underneath the platform. Go up
the stairs and kill the enemy by the stationary machine gun. Go back down and
kill the rest of the enemies. Always kill the nearest enemy that's behind the
rest of the remaining enemies. You can go across a bridge on the right to loot
the two bodies from earlier. Shoot out the spotlight.

Go back to the platform where the deserter got shot. Move up onto the platform.
Go to the lantern. There's a break in the railing. Jump down onto the pipe. Go
to the left. Jump over the gap. Jump down onto the top of a ventilation shaft.
Go straight and jump onto the metal platform attached to the wall. Jump over
another gap to an even smaller metal platform with a railing. Turn to the right
and move along the top of the pipe. Hop onto the perpendicular pipe to the
left. Move up the pipe. Jump over the narrow gap onto a second pipe. Turn right
onto the narrow metal beam.

Go across the metal beam to the wall. Hop up onto the metal walkway with the
railings. Go left along the ventilation shaft to the opposite wall. There's a
dead body with some ammo and a Gas Mask. Turn to the left and jump down onto
the metal balcony. Jump down onto the pipe. Turn towards the glowing fungus on
the wall. Follow the pipes down to the ground. Put on your gas mask.

To avoid detection, go to the right wall and go straight. About halfway across
there's a guard with a spotlight watching the ground on the left side. Go to
the left wall once you get past the spotlight. Disarm the trap. Move past the
trap and go right past the rubble to the right wall. Disarm the trap. Turn to
the left and move towards the glowing mushroom patch. Go to the right and
disarm the trap. Go past the trap and go to the left wall to disarm another
trap. There is one final trap in front of the glowing pipe. Go into the glowing
pipe. Climb up the ladder on the right side of the wall.

Take off your gas mask. Go down the pipe and climb up a second ladder. Blow out
the lamp. There are two guards across from you and one guard on patrol.
Unfortunately, sneaking to the crates or opening the wall locker alerts the
standing guard to your presence. Do not move forward as this alerts the
standing guard, too. All three guards are wearing armor. You really need to
pump up the Tihar or Helsing for silent kills. The throwing knife sometimes
gets deflected so that's not a good choice here. Follow the patroller when he
walks away from the other two guards. Silently kill the patroller. Blow out the
lamp and shoot out the light over the generator. Sneak back to the two guards.
Get in a headshot on the sitting guard and quickly kill the standing guard. Get
the +5 BULLETS from the wall locker for a Discovery Point. There's a Helsing
and two arrows on the crate. There are four more arrows in the wooden board by
the manhole.

Go back to the stairs. There's two sticky grenades in the wall locker
underneath the stairs. Go up the stairs. Watch out for the broken glass on the
ground by the doorway at the top of the stairs. Three soldiers will run past
the doorway. A couple of seconds later a fourth soldier walks past the doorway.
Wait for the guard to walk past the doorway going from left to right. Peek out
the doorway. You should see another guard walking from right to left on the
opposite side of the tracks. Wait in the doorway and pump up your pneumatic
weapon. Go out onto the tracks and kill the guard to the left on the opposite
side of the tracks. Turn to the right, make sure the pneumatic weapon is fully
pumped, and kill the other guard. Loot the bodies.

Go left towards the Nazi front line. Go to the right railing and look for a
guard standing by a stationary machine gun down and to the right. Get in a good
position and snipe him. Above him is another enemy. Snipe him, too. Make sure
to pump up the pneumatic weapon between shots due to the armor of the targets
and the distance. Move over to the left side of the tracks. There's another
enemy on a platform sticking out from the tracks on the left side. Snipe him.

There's a platform straight ahead on the tracks. There's one enemy on the left
side and three enemies on the right side. Pump up the pneumatic weapon. Kill
the enemy on the left. Move over to the right side of the tracks so you can see
the other three enemies on the platform. Sneak up the right set of stairs a
little bit. Pump up the pneumatic weapon and quickly snipe them from right to
left. Look to the left side of the tracks and snipe the lone enemy. Look
straight ahead and snipe the two enemies in front of the platform. Loot the
bodies. There's ammo and grenades on the upper platform.

At the bottom of the left set of stairs by the platform there's a set of stairs
going down to the lower platform. Go down the stairs a little bit so you can
the lower platform. There are two stationary enemies and one patroller. Snipe
the patroller when he stops at the bottom of the stairs. Snipe the enemy
standing by the light. Move to the right and snipe the third enemy. Loot the
bodies. There's some sniper ammo by the stationary machine gun. If you go back
towards the Red lines you can jump over a gap in the platform. Go forward and
there's a grenade trap at the end of the second bridge.

Go back up to the tracks and go down the subway tunnel. Go up the raised
platform on the left side of the tracks. A rail car comes down the tracks. Wait
for the rail car to leave. Run back to the platform where you killed the four
enemies. Get on the platform and face the tunnel. Pump up the pneumatic weapon.
Wait for the rail car to return. Snipe the driver then the gunner. This also
causes the rail car to explode. I couldn't recover any ammo from the exploded
rail car.

Run down the tunnel. Extinguish any lights along the way. At the other end of
the tunnel there's one guard. Snipe him when he's in the tunnel. Go down the
tracks and snipe the enemy by the sandbags. Go down the tunnel and snipe the
other two enemies. There are six enemies left. Two are standing by the fire.
Two are on patrol. You have to kill the prisoners for the Hedge-hopper
achievement. You also have to kill the prisoners before killing the remaining
Nazis. Kill the two patrollers when they are out of sight of the two enemies by
the campfire. Kill the two prisoners. You get the sad moral sound when you kill
the prisoners. Kill the two guards by the campfire. You get a sad moral sound
when you kill the last two enemies on the level. There is nothing in the two
dead end tunnels below the tracks. Get back to the tracks. Go through the
doorway on the left side of the tunnel. Push open the door to the last room.
There's a supply crate to the right with an <Automatic Shotgun>, +10 BULLETS,
and some ammo.  There's a Medkit in the left corner of the room. Open the door
under the light to end the level.

Go to [4.2 Trolley Combat].

Get through the Communist lines and get behind the Nazi lines. You can sneak or
fight your way through the Communist and Nazi lines. The quickest way to do
this is to go immediately sneak down the stairs to the left of the rail car.
Sneak past the two guards on the lower platform. Blow out the lamp. Wait by the
platform for both guards to walk up the stairs. Make your way behind the Nazi
lines. Read through [4.1.1 Frontline - Invisible Man] if you need help getting
to the manhole.

You can sneak or kill the remaining soldiers. The easiest and most reliable way
to destroy the rail car is to lure it to the top of the stairs and use a
grenade. The rail car will always stay stationary in front of the doorway, but
moves around on other parts of the tracks. The rail car can kill you if it runs
you over. Prevent the enemy from killing the middle prisoner by either killing
the guard or alerting the guard. You have to kill the two guards on the tracks
and the four enemies below the tracks. The middle prisoner, the Red leader,
stands up when he can be rescued. Simply approach him and you get the
achievement and a Discovery Point. Kill the enemy at the far end of the tunnel
by the door to the exit of the level.

    |  When I came to my senses, I lost all hope. Nazi prisoners  |
    |  were used for slave labor or target practice.              |
    |_____________________________________________________________|

Loot the ammo from the bodies. There's a <Kalash>, an <Automatic Shotgun>, and
a <Revolver with silencer> available. Open the door behind the bodies to get
access to a storeroom. There's a Kalash, a couple of Automatic Shotguns,
grenades, and a pair of Nightvision Goggles. Go to the T-intersection and go
right. There's a wall locker with some throwing knives and maybe a filter. Open
the door with the blood stain and go into the room. There's a wall locker with
+5 BULLETS, a Medkit, and a Gas Mask. Meet up with the two rangers and follow
them. In the room with the two bodies, check the body on the right for +5
BULLETS. Exit the room into a tunnel and meet up with the rangers.

You board the armored car with Pavel. You get to man the machine gun turret.
Use [A] and [D] to rotate the turret. Use the [F] key to toggle the machine gun
spotlight. Press [E] to honk the horn when you stop at the gate. You get
discovered at the first roadblock. Good job, Pavel. Rotate the turret and
destroy the two armored trolleys chasing you. Next, kill the guards on the
platform to the left. Blow up another armored trolley that comes up behind you.
Rotate the turret to the front and destroy the obstruction. Just past the
obstruction there are a couple of enemies to the left. Destroy another armored
trolley behind you. After that trolley there's some enemies in front of you,
then to the left, and a final armored trolley behind you.

Rotate the turret to the right towards the opposite set of tracks. The Panzer
bulldozes the subway cars off the tracks and starts firing on you. Use the
machine gun on the supports underneath the tracks that are behind and in front
of the Panzer. This collapses the tracks and dumps the Panzer to the ground.
This completes the !Steam Achievement Tank Buster.

You exit the armored trolley at a gate. There's some sniper ammo by the
skeleton in front of the armored trolley. Follow Pavel into the tunnel on the
right. Open the door for Pavel and go into the room. Go through the small entry
room. Open the door to the right and go into the next room. Turn around to the
left and there's a wall locker with a Gas Mask. Pick up the +5 BULLETS on the
filing cabinet on the left side of the room. Go around the corner to the left.
There's a wall locker on the left wall with some 5.45 ammo. Open the door for
Pavel and go into the tunnel to end the level.

You're onboard the ranger rail car. Duck underneath the pipe to avoid getting
smashed in the face. You can shoot the pipes, but this is a waste of ammo. You
can stand up the rest of the way. You'll go down a side track. There's a guard
in front of you. Silently kill the guard before he gets to the station to get
the !Steam Achievement Raider. If you don't silently kill the first guard or
the guard makes it back to the station, the enemies at the next station will
attack you. Otherwise, you just pass through the station and don't get attacked
until you are almost past the station. If you get attacked, duck down to avoid
taking direct fire from the enemies. You don't need to kill any of the enemies
to make it through the station. You may need to use a Medkit if you take a lot
of damage.

Duck down as you leave the station to avoid smashing your face into a pipe. The
rail car quickly picks up speed. Stay crouched to avoid some enemies behind
some sandbags. Pavel steers the rail car into a tunnel to the left. Stay
crouched or just duck under any face-smashing pipes. You reach the depot.
Then, the nosalises come. Kill any nosalises that jump onto the rail car. There
are winged nosalises that attack with a sonic scream. Just ignore the winged
nosalises and use a Medkit when you take a lot of damage.

          After the ranger gets pulled out of the rail car, you must stand up
!Glitch   if you are crouched. If the rail car crashes and you are crouching,
          you get sent to the Big Sky. You can wear Nightvision Goggles without
the glitch happening. This glitch can also happen if a live nosalis gets stuck
on the side of the rail car as you leave the depot. If you end up in the Big
Sky, reload the last checkpoint to fight through the depot again.

Go straight ahead to the subway cars. There are two traps on each side of the
subway cars. You can loot some ammo from the dead soldiers inside the subway
cars. There's also a couple of Kalash rifles and an Automatic Shotgun on the
floor. There's an open crate with pistol ammo, a Medkit, +10 BULLETS, and a
<Revolver with rifle stock and silencer>. Open the supply crate on the other
seat for a <Bastard with silencer>, grenades, 5.45 ammo, and a lot of gun ammo.
Exit the subway cars and go back to the crashed rail car. Crouch down and enter
the broken pipe. Go right to find a body by a radioactive mushroom with some
ammo and +2 BULLETS. Turn around and go down the pipe past the break to end the
level.

    |  After Pavel's death, I was on my own. Somehow, I had to  |
    |  reach Black Station. Ulman would meet me there and take  |
    |  me to Polis.                                             |
    |___________________________________________________________|

You exit the pipe into a subway tunnel. Go down the tunnel to Hole Station for
a Discovery Point. Talk to the captain, the man standing on the raised platform
behind the sandbags. You get recruited to join the station's defense, called
the Children of the Underground. To the left of the captain is a crate with
lots of ammo and a Medkit. Two of the guards get killed by a massive sonic wave
that knocks everyone out. One drops an automatic shotgun and the other drops a
Kalash. Then, the nosalises come. Fight off the nosalises. Another sonic wave
makes the remaining defenders black out.

You and the captain survive, but the captain is mortally wounded. Loot the
bodies of the dead defenders. Go up the steps to the platform. The captain
gives you a mission to transmit a report to Polis from the station's radio
beacon on the surface. Take the message from the captain for a Discovery Point.
Go up the ramp and loot the dead body. Go down to the ground. Go through the
doorway. Go up the ramp. There's a supply case by the bed with shotgun ammo, +2
BULLETS, and +5 BULLETS. Go down to the tracks and go through the barricade. Go
to the right. Climb up the ladder and crouch down to get on the platform.
There's a couple of Throwing Knives. Go back down to the tracks. Go to the
rail car. There's a +1 BULLET by the body. In front of the rail car is an
overturned crate with arrows and sniper ammo. Go down the tracks and through
the gate.

There's a dead lurker on the platform with an arrow. Don't fall down the lurker
holes on the platform. Grab the +2 BULLETS and ammo from the body at the foot
of the ramp. Go up the ramp for some shotgun ammo in the guard booth. Then, the
lurkers come. There is a large group of lurkers loose in the station. Kill
lurkers until you no longer hear the snarling noises. This is a great time to
work on any of the personal weapon achievements since lurkers don't do a lot of
damage and are pretty weak.

Go down the right tunnel to the subway car. Inside the subway car is a cache of
5.45 ammo, a Kalash, a +5 filter, and a Gas Mask. I couldn't loot the gas mask.
Disarm the trap by the cache. Go through the subway cars. You get a Discovery
Point once you exit the subway cars by the staircase. There's a dead body with
some ammo and a <Revolver with rifle stock>. Go through the doorway to the
right of the body and grab the +3 BULLETS from the shelf. Go up the stairs to
the upper subway car. Pick up +3 BULLETS by the fireman's pole leading to the
lower subway car.

Move into the main tunnel. Go left. The room on the left is empty. Don't fall
down the lurker holes. Go to the corner for some shotgun ammo by a Duplet. Go
to the right to the other corner for more shotgun ammo. Move up along the left
wall. The room with the lamp is empty. The body by the tipped-over gurney has
some 5.45 ammo. Go up the stairs on the right side for a 5.45 clip. Go back to
the main tunnel. Go into the room that's between the booth on the left and the
body on the right. Grab the shotgun ammo and +3 BULLETS on the table. The body
by the stairs on the left side of the tunnel has sniper ammo and a Tihar. Go up
the stairs on the left side of the main tunnel and go to the end of the upper
hallway for a Discovery Point. There's also two Medkits. Go down to the main
tunnel. Go to the right side of the tunnel. Go past the big pot and go through
the doorway. There's a little bit of ammo by the body. There's a gas mask, a +4
filter, and Medkit on the crate. Go through the doorway.

Put on your gas mask. Go around the lurker hole and go up the stairs on the
left side of the room. Go across the metal walkway on the left to a storeroom.
There's a dead nosalis with an arrow, a dead body with shotgun ammo, a safe
with more arrows, and a total of +12 BULLETS. There's a Helsing on the floor
and ammo on a table. There is a +3 filter and a +4 filter on the crate by the
dead nosalis. Go back downstairs.

Then, the lurkers come. This part of the main tunnel is infested with lurkers.
Kill them at your convenience. There's a room on the left side with shotgun
ammo. Go up the first set of stairs on the right side for some revolver ammo by
a discarded revolver. You can get some arrows and a throwing knife if you go up
the second set of stairs on the right. Crouch down to move around the shelters.
At the very end of the tunnel is a Kalash and some 5.45 ammo.

Move into the left tunnel. Take off the gas mask. This tunnel has lurkers in
it, too. Go through the subway car for some 5.45 ammo. The upper subway car has
a Revolver, a body with ammo, and a grenade. Go back down to the platform. Go
to the radio for a Discovery Point. Loot the ammo and +4 BULLETS. There's a
<Revolver with rifle stock> on the platform. There's a minor glitch here where
your revolver drops through the platform if you swap your revolver with the
revolver with the rifle stock. Go down past the subway cars and into the subway
tunnel. Go all the way to the red light to pick up +15 BULLETS. Go back and go
into the side tunnel to end the level.

    |  I worried that my home, Exhibition, would share the fate of  |
    |  Hole Station. But within that nightmare, I met a young       |
    |  survivor, who was very brave, and very talkative.            |
    |_______________________________________________________________|

The kid climbs on your back Yoda-style. This slows down your ability to turn.
Loot the ammo by Uncle's body. Exit the room. Go through the hallway to the
subway tunnel. There are two bodies in the hallway, a Bastard SMG, and a
Revolver with an Extended Barrel. Out in the subway tunnel go to the right.
There's a Duplet and some shotgun ammo. Then, the lurkers come. The kid on your
back will helpfully point out the obvious. Kill the lurkers in the tunnel.
Don't fall down any lurker holes.

Go towards the blocked end of the tunnel. Go up the wooden boards and go into
the tunnel on the right. There's another Duplet and shotgun ammo at the side
tunnel entrance entrance. At the other end of the tunnel is ammo and a
<Revolver with rifle stock>. Jump over the gas can trap or trigger the trap and
run away. Go down the hallway to the room. Open the locker and loot the ammo.

Go up the passageway to the right of the locker to enter a larger tunnel. Then,
the lurkers come. Kill the lurkers then move down the tracks. There's a body
with an Automatic Shotgun and another body with a Bastard SMG, plus ammo.
There's another body behind the oil drums at the dead end with a Kalash and +5
BULLETS. Follow the tracks past the wooden structure and more bodies. Go into
the dead end where you see the headlamp. Get the +2 BULLETS from the body. Go
into the side tunnel to the room with the campfire. There's a body with a
Kalash in the middle of the room. If you look on the left side of the room
behind the sandbags there's some shotgun ammo. The other body in the room has a
Revolver, some ammo, and +2 Medkits. Exit the room.

The kid will helpfully point out the huge lurker hole in front of you. Jump
over the hole. Move down the hallway to the next room. There's a Duplet and
some shotgun ammo. Then, the lurkers come. Kill all the lurkers. Exit the room
and go into a large chamber. There's some shotgun ammo and a Duplet by the
cooking fire. There are two passages out of the large chamber. The passage on
the left has a couple of bomb bobby-traps. The path on the right goes through
some green water. Go down the right path. Go to the right and loot the ammo and
+2 BULLETS from the body. Go down the right path. Just keep going straight
until you reach the shotgun. Stand up and turn around to loot some ammo from
the body. The left path leads to the same place as the right path.

Go into the big pipe at the end. There's a Kalash in the big pipe. You exit at
the bottom of a huge shaft. Go to the left. Carefully move along the ledge and
hop up on the crate to get to the body with ammo and +4 BULLETS. Go to the
other side of the room and loot the other body. There's also a Kalash. Go up
the wooden ramp. Climb up the ramp to the top. Walk along the ledge to return
the kid to his family. The grateful mother will offer you some bullets. You can
take the +20 BULLETS or refuse them. You get a Discovery Point for refusing the
reward. Nothing special happens if you take the reward.

You move into the refugee tunnel. Go uphill. There are a couple of traders. One
exchanges ammo and the other has weapons and Medkits for sale. Neither one has
any filters.

    |  I went up again, to the gloomy charm of post-apocalyptic  |
    |  Moscow. I was warned in Hole Station about a new squad    |
    |  of Nazi rangers on the surface.                           |
    |____________________________________________________________|

There's a fresh Gas Mask right in front of you. There's also a body of a dead
guard with ammo and a Kalash. Exit the tunnel and move around the ice blocks to
the right. Hide in the shed. There's another Gas Mask in the shed. Wait for the
Nazis to go past the shed into the tunnel. Look out the doorway of the shed.
There's a guard on patrol on the upper walkway in front of you.

If you have a Helsing, you can get a silent kill from the shed. Using a
silenced revolver or silenced VSV rifle won't always get a silent kill,
especially if you don't have a scope. The guard is too far for the throwing
knife. Wait for the guard to stop on the right. Leave the shed and sneak to the
right to the ladder. Wait for the guard to stop at the right again before
climbing up the ladder. Stay behind the boxes so the guard doesn't see you.
Take out the throwing knives. Sneak towards the guard. Go down the little ramp
and hide by the tall box and the solid railing. The guard should walk around
the corner towards you. Quickly kill him using a couple of throwing knives.
Look in the crate by the alarm bell for a gas mask and a <Revolver with stock,
optics, and silencer>.

Go across the middle walkway to the opposite side of the upper level. If you go
left, you can go down the ramp and loot a body that has some revolver ammo.
Sneak to the right and go up the stairs. Take out the throwing knives or the
Helsing. Go to the left. Sneak around to the doorway of the building so you can
see the back of an enemy. Don't sneak too far or you get spotted by a second
enemy in the building. Quickly kill both enemies before they can raise an
alarm. Loot the bodies. There's a nice +10 filter inside the building. Outside
the building there's a grenade trap between the building and the wall. The
grenade is hidden in the white plant next to the building.

Exit the building and go towards the large building on the left. Sneak up to
the first window on the ground floor and silently kill the enemy inside the
room. Ignore the demon that flies off with the enemy. Extinguish the lamp. Stay
at the bottom of the slab that leads up into the building. Wait for the two
guards to finish talking. Watch the shadows on the ceiling. Wait for the shadow
of the guard to walk away. Sneak up the ramp and quickly kill the guard that's
to the right just as you enter the room. Sneak up to the doorway and kill the
other guard when he's in the other room. There's a gas mask on the desk.

Sneak across to the other room and loot the body. There's some revolver ammo in
the left corner by the windows. Sneak out of the room to the hallway and go
into the next room on the left. Hop up on the crate by the window and loot the
+4 BULLETS. Go out the window onto the wooden boards. Go to the right and sneak
along the ledge outside the building. Go to the end of the pipe and jump
through the window into the room. Grab the revolver ammo from the chair. Sneak
across the room to the right corner by the door. Wait until you see the guard
walk away from you going from right to left. Go out into the hallway and silent
kill the guard. Now backtrack outside the building. Go into the hallway and
silent kill the guard sitting by the fire and alarm bell. Go up the stairs by
the alarm bell to loot some 5.45 ammo from the back. Go to the blocked stairs
going down to loot an arrow.

Go down the stairs to the alarm bell and fire. Go to the right and go all the
way to the last doorway on the right. There's a board with a white arrow
pointing at the doorway. Go through the doorway onto the slab. Go all the way
to the right corner and stop. Listen carefully for the footsteps of the guard
above. Wait until the the footsteps are going away from you before moving. Go
all the way to the outside part of the building. Go down the slab to the wall.
Look to the left for a body under the slabs clutching some revolver ammo. Sneak
to the top of the slab that's on the outside wall of the building. Get in the
corner and stand up. Turn around so you can see the floor above you on the
left. Silent kill the guard that stops in the hallway.

Sneak up the slabs to the upper floor. Go to the left towards the two rooms.
Silent kill the guard in the room on the right. There's an Automatic Shotgun in
the opposite room. Sneak back to the hallway and look in the dark area on the
left. There are two guards inspecting some cabinets. Try to silent kill both
guards. Go down into the darkened area and loot the bodies. One guard has a
Medkit and the other guard has three Throwing Knives. Climb up into the hallway
and drop down on the other side. Go back to the hallway with the sign with the
white arrow. Go all the way to the other end of the building.

Jump out the window onto the excavator. Run to the far right corner of the
backyard. There's a corpse with 5.45 ammo and a Bastard. Go back to the
excavator. Climb onto the excavator and use it to get on the ladder on the
building. Climb onto the roof. Run into the small shed. Use the tape player
inside the shed to transmit the emergency message from the captain of Hole
Station and complete the !Steam Achievement DJ Artyom.

Let's kill a couple of demons. Pick up the two sticky grenades. Equip the
sticky grenade. Move out of the shed a little and look up. As soon as you see a
demon start to land, toss the sticky grenade using the Right Mouse Button to do
a quick toss. The sticky grenade should stick to the demon and kill it as it
flies away. Repeat for the second demon. Exit the shed. There's a body on the
roof with a Kalash.

Go to the left of the body on the roof and look for a steep slab going down
into the building. Exit the room into a hallway. Go straight across the hallway
into the next room. There's a corpse with an Automatic Shotgun and +5 BULLETS.
Disarm the three grenade traps in the the hallway.  The other room on the left
has some sniper ammo on a desk. Exit the hallway and go down the slabs on the
left. You're back in the hallway with the alarm bell and the fire. Go down to
the last room on the right and use the slabs to get to the dark area on the
other side of the building.

Once you drop down the hole there's no way to get back to the upper floors. Go
through the hole in the floor. There are six enemies on this floor that have
already been alerted to your presence. Might have been those sticky grenades
you were using on the roof. Kill the enemies in the area. Grab the +5 BULLETS
off the shelf before leaving the room. Look in the room on the left and get the
+5 BULLETS from the cabinet in the corner. Go up the stairs on the left side of
the main room to get two arrows at the top of the stairs. Go into the other
hallway. The first room on the right has some revolver ammo along with a
Revolver with extended barrel. You can turn off or shoot the tape player. The
other room on the right is empty. The room on the left is where we killed the
first enemy in the building. Go back to the main room. Go towards the sandbags
and campfire. There's some supplies to the left that include a +7 filter, a +8
filter, a Gas Mask, and some ammo. Exit the building and go to the right.

There's a spotlight in the distance. Head towards the spotlight by running to
the right and run along the edge without going into the radioactive water. This
puts you on a partially collapsed part of the ground by a ruined set of subway
stairs. The bunker with the spotlight should be straight ahead. There is a six
man Nazi patrol moving among the wrecked cars and one Nazi watching the bunker.
Kill the Nazis in the area. If you go back towards the building, there are some
holes in the surface. There is one set of three holes surrounded by cars. Go
down there to find a body with a <Bastard with silencer>. You can find a Gas
Mask in the hole that's closest to the building. Go down the stairs to go
underneath the bunker and end the level.

Go to [4.7 Black Station].

    |  I went up again, to the gloomy charm of post-apocalyptic  |
    |  Moscow. I was warned in Hole Station about a new squad    |
    |  of Nazi rangers on the surface.                           |
    |____________________________________________________________|

This version of the Outpost walkthrough can be completed with as little as 2
minutes of filter time once you start the level. It skips sneaking and takes an
alternate route through the building.

Put on the gas mask or swap your gas mask for the new one by the entrance. Loot
the body for some ammo. Run out of the tunnel and go to the right. Run around
the ice blocks and go past the shed. Immediately climb up the ladder to the
upper level. There's a <Revolver with stock, optics, and silencer> inside a
crate near the alarm bell. Kill the guard on the upper level, run across the
middle walkway to the opposite side, and go up the stairs. Ignore the enemies
and run into the small building on the left and grab the +10 filter from
inside. Kill the two guards near the small building.

Head towards the three story building on the left. Ignore the demon that grabs
one of the enemies. Go through the the break in the wall on the left before
getting to the building. Go across the bridge. In the corner of the backyard to
the left is a corpse with some 5.45 ammo and a Bastard. Climb up on the
excavator. Walk along the arm of the excavator to get to the ladder. Climb up
the ladder onto the roof of the building. If you have the recorded message from
the Defense level, go into the small wooden shed on the roof and use the tape
player by the radio to transmit the message for the !Steam Achievement DJ
Artyom.

You can easily kill a couple of demons here. There are two sticky grenades in
the shed. Equip a sticky grenade. Move out of the shed a little and look up. As
soon as you see a demon start to land toss the sticky grenade using the Right
Mouse Button to do a quick toss. The sticky grenade should stick to the demon
and kill it as it flies away. Repeat for the second demon. Exit the shed and go
to the left. There's a body on the roof with a Kalash. Go past the body and go
down the steep slab into a room.

Exit the room and go straight across the hall into the other room. Grab the +5
BULLETS and shotgun ammo from the corpse. Exit the room and go back into the
hallway. Disarm the three grenade traps. The room on the left has some sniper
ammo. Exit the hallway, go to the left, and drop down to the next floor. There
are four enemies in this part of the building. One of the guards wearing a blue
parka has a lootable filter if you don't shoot off his gas mask. The enemy
wearing the heavy suit has two filters if you don't shoot off his gas mask or
helmet. Using grenades can also destroy the filters. Kill all the guards with
body shots if you want to pick up between +7 and +9 in filters. Check the rooms
on this floor for some revolver ammo and +4 BULLETS in a window by a backpack.
Go to the central room with the alarm bell. Go up the stairs to get some 5.45
ammo by the backpack and an arrow stuck in the railing by the blocked stairs
going down.

Let's take a shortcut and skip some enemies. This is a one way trip. Go to the
bottom of the blocked stairs and go through the broken railing to drop down to
the next floor. Grab the two arrows by the candle. There are seven enemies
here. There is one outside patroller, one patroller by the guard bell, a guard
sitting by the alarm bell, an officer asleep in a room on the left, a guard in
the hallway on the left, an enemy in another room in the left hallway, and
another enemy in a room in the hallway on the right. I haven't figured out a
way to silently kill the rest of the enemies in the building without one of
them raising an alarm. Kill all the enemies. Check the rooms in the hallway on
the right for a total of +10 BULLETS. The room with the tape player has some
revolver ammo and a Revolver with extended barrel. Check by the campfire/alarm
bell for two filters, usually a +8 and a +7, some ammo, and a gas mask. Exit
the building and go to the right.

There's a spotlight in the distance. Head towards the spotlight by running to
the right and run along the edge without going into the radioactive water. This
puts you on a partially collapsed part of the ground by a ruined set of subway
stairs. The bunker with the spotlight should be straight ahead. There is a six
man Nazi patrol moving among the wrecked cars and one Nazi watching the bunker.
Kill the Nazis in the area. If you go back towards the building, there are some
holes in the surface. There is one set of three holes surrounded by cars. Go
down there to find a body with a <Bastard with silencer>. You can find a Gas
Mask in the hole that's closest to the building. Go down the stairs to go
underneath the bunker and end the level.

Go to [4.7 Black Station].

    |  It was clear that Black Station was occupied by fascists, but  |
    |  Ulman had said he'd wait for me there. I had to risk it.       |
    |_________________________________________________________________|

This is the kill everyone/stealth walkthrough.

Take off your gas mask. Go up to the gate to talk to Ulman. He leaves you a
silenced VSV rifle. Loot the body and the rifle for ammo. There's Nightvision
Goggles in the corner on top of the woodpile. Go into the passageway. Do not
crunch any glass, disturb any can alarms, or trigger the two Ewok traps. Sneak
past the two Nazis while they are talking. Finishing listening to their
conversation for a Discovery Point. Go into the lit hallway and blow out the
lantern.

Sneak back to the first two Nazis. Carefully sneak so you can see through the
doorway. Silently kill the guard that's sitting with his back to you then
quickly kill the second guard when he stands up. Loot the bodies. There's a
throwing knife stuck in the crate and some ammo on the backpack. Go back to the
hallway. Wait for the guard to walk away from you. Follow him and kill him with
a silenced weapon after he goes around the corner. Blow out the lantern. Turn
around and go back to the overhead light. Shoot out the light and go through
the gate.

Sneak around the corner to see two more guards. Go to the right and hide in the
corner closest to the guards. Listen to their conversation for a Discovery
Point. Follow the guard that walks past you and kill him after he goes around
the corner. Backtrack and kill the other guard when he's standing by the lamp.
Loot the body by the lamp. Go to the right and shoot out the overhead light. Go
straight and to the left. Go around the corner and there's a supply crate with
a Tihar and some sniper ammo. Turn around and go through the gate. Go right
again to the room with the lamp.

Go to the left and sneak down the hallway between the two grates. Go around the
corner and sneak across the wooden platform to the other side of the room.
Don't go down the ramp. Listen to the guards talking about the generator for a
Discovery Point. Wait for the sound of footsteps to stop before going down the
ramp. This lets the guard get set in position so they don't see you. Face the
wall and sneak down the stairs on the left. Silently kill the two guards and
loot the bodies for ammo. Shoot out the first lights in the subway tunnel. Go
into the tunnel and look to the left. Shoot out the other light when the guard
is not standing under the light. Silently kill the guard and sneak down to the
body. Kill the guard sitting in the next room. Go into the room and get next to
the generator. Press the [E] key to sabotage the generator and get a Discovery
Point. There's a Duplet, some shotgun ammo, and +5 BULLETS by the campfire.

Go across the room past the generator and go through the doorway to a hallway.
Go up the stairs and stop before walking into the light. Peek around the corner
to the right. When the guard walks away, sneak up and blow out the lantern.
Sneak into the subway car and wait. Kill the guard when he's standing with his
back towards you. There's two arrows in the dark end of the subway car. Check
the other end for another arrow and a <Helsing>. Exit the subway car. Climb up
the ladder by the side of the subway car to get on top. The supply crate on top
of the subway car has a VSV rifle, some 5.45 ammo, and +4 BULLETS. Jump down
and go straight through the two gates to the stairs. Look under the stairs for
a body with +3 BULLETS and possibly a Medkit.

Go across the room past the generator and go through the doorway to a hallway.
Go up the stairs and stop before walking into the light. Peek around the corner
to the right. When the guard walks away, sneak up and blow out the lantern.
Sneak into the subway car and wait. Kill the guard when he's standing with his

of the subway car has a VSV rifle, some 5.45 ammo, and +4 BULLETS. Jump down
and go straight through the two gates to the stairs. Look under the stairs for
a body with +3 BULLETS and possibly a Medkit.

Go back to the subway car and go to the left down the platform towards the
lamp. Before the lamp there's a tunnel going underneath the subway platform. Go
just a little bit into the tunnel and look to the left. Jump up on the boxes
and got to the left to get to a secret area that gives a Discovery Point. Exit
the secret area and go straight. Turn left at the wall to get underneath the
next area.

Go to the right to the wall then go to the left to reach the unlit exit from
the crawlspace. Wait underneath the platform for the guard to walk away. Leave
the crawlspace and go across the tracks to the right. Sneak up to the doorway
on the left. Go through the doorway before you get spotted. Go down the stairs
and go into the room with the lamp and the <Automatic Shotgun>. Exit the room
by going right. Blow out the lamp above the broken door. Go up the stairs. Wait
in the doorway until it's clear. Exit the hallway and go across the tracks and
hide in the corner by the wooden barrier. Silently kill the nearest guard when
he's standing at the top of the steps.

The guard in  the center of the platform has Nightvision Goggles so we want to
be careful here. Sneak along the tracks to the other end of the tunnel. There
is one enemy looking through a supply crate. There's another guard that is on
patrol. Get in position so you can see the enemy by the supply crate. Kill the
patroller before he gets to the enemy by the crate. Quickly kill the enemy by
the crate before he notices anything. Sneak up onto the platform and loot the
ammo from the supply crate and the bodies. Stay by the crate and move sideways
to the left until you can see the lamp on the other side of the platform. Wait
here and silently kill the other patroller. Look to the left and kill the enemy
with the Nightvision Goggles. There's a Medkit, a couple of grenades, shotgun
ammo, 5.45 ammo, and +15 BULLETS by the fire.

Go back to the room with the automatic shotgun. Go down the tunnel into the
sewers. Put on the gas mask. Go to the left. There are two bodies in the sewer
tunnel and both are empty. Go into the room with the shorted out electrical
wiring. The wall locker has a filter. Go up the staircase. Take off the gas
mask. Shoot out the light. Go to the left. Watch out for the broken glass. You
get a Discovery Point for overhearing the enemy's mumbling. Go into the room on
the left. There's some sniper ammo in the locker. Exit the room and go to the
right. Silently kill the enemy sitting by the lamp. Sneak up and blow out the
lamp. Go into the bathroom on the right and loot the ammo from the backpack in
the last stall. Listen to the long story about Metro 2, the Russian Ragnarok,
and the Invisible Watchers for a Discovery Point.

Sneak into the big room. There are four enemies. One enemy is on patrol. The
second enemy is leaning against the sandbags. The third enemy is sitting by the
fire. The fourth enemy goes to sleep by the fire after listening to the Metro 2
story. Kill the patroller when is out of sight of the other enemies. Kill the
guard leaning against the sandbags followed by the enemy sitting by the fire.
Kill the fourth guard before he wakes up. There's some ammo by the backpack and
+5 BULLETS under the pillow. It looks like the enemy that was leaning against
the sandbag has Nightvision Goggles plus a <VSV Rifle>. Go through any of the
three tunnels to go back to the room that had the enemy with the Nightvision
Goggles in the center. There's a Tihar and some sniper ammo by the fire. Go to
the right wall for a supply crate with a revolver, revolver ammo, and a
throwing knife.

Go back to the room that had the four enemies. Go through the doorway into a
room with a lamp. Go down the steps and go down the square hatch in the floor
to a sewer tunnel. Put on the gas mask. There's a body with some ammo and two
filters I couldn't pick up. Go down the sewer tunnel. Hop over the spiked log.
Avoid the Ewok trap. Go up the steps on the left to a passageway. Take off the
gas mask. Go around the corner to the left. There's a body with a Kalash and
some 5.45 ammo in the dead end on the left. Go through the doorway and follow
the path to the end. You meet up with Pavel. Climb into the sidecar of the
rail bike.

You have a vision. You're in a stone tunnel. There's a wooden barrier in front
of you. A Dark One breaks through the barrier and approaches you. You have two
choices. You can turn around and run through a gate into a dark room. The gate
closes and you stand around in the dark until the vision ends. The other choice
is to let the Dark One approach you or walk towards the Dark One. The vision
changes and you see a green, leafy canopy and a blue sky overhead. Khan speaks
to you. You get a Discovery Point and the vision ends.

Go to [5.1 Polis].

    |_________________________________________________________________|

This Merciful walkthrough skips turning off the generator.

Take off your gas mask. Go up to the gate to talk to Ulman. He leaves you a
silenced VSV rifle. Loot the body of the dead Nazi. There's also Nightvision
Goggles in the corner. Go into the passageway. Try not to crunch glass
underfoot, disturb the cans, or trigger any traps. Sneak past the two Nazis
while they are talking. Finish listening to their conversation for a Discovery
Point. Go into the lit hallway and blow out the lantern.

Sneak up to the crate. Wait for the guard to walk away from you. Go around the
corner and use a silenced weapon to shoot out the light. Go to the right and
around the corner to see two more guards. Go to the right side and hide in the
corner closest to the guards. Listen to their conversation for a Discovery
Point. Wait for one guard to walk past you. Sneak towards the lamp and blow it
out. Look through the gate and shoot out the overhead light. Sneak through the
gate and hide in the corner on the left. The patrolling enemy will walk to the
gate, stand there briefly, and walk away. Sneak behind him and go to the left.
Go to the dead end to find a supply crate with sniper ammo and a Tihar.

Move so you can see where the guard is walking by the crate. Wait for the guard
to go past you towards the gate. Go straight ahead sneak up to the pipes.
Crouch down and climb up on the pipes. Stay on the left pipe until you have to
switch to the right pipe. The right pipe isn't able to support your weight
completely and will make a loud screech when it buckles. Drop down at the end
of the pipes. There's another Tihar and some sniper ammo by the campfire. The
supply crate by the left wall has a Revolver and revolver ammo.

Sneak into the tunnel on the left. There's a guard that walks into the tunnel
so be careful. When the guard is walking away exit the tunnel and go to the
left. Hop up on the ledge. Wait for the guard to walk into the tunnel. Go
straight along the left wall and go through the doorway on the left. Go through
the room and down the stairs to the square hatch in the floor. Wait by the
hatch for the guard to finish talking about Metro 2 for a Discovery Point.

Go down the square hatch in the floor to a sewer tunnel. Put on the gas mask.
There's a body with some ammo. There are two filters that I wasn't able to pick
up. Go down the sewer tunnel. Hop over the spiked log. Avoid the Ewok trap. Go
up the steps on the left to a passageway. Take off the gas mask. Go around the
corner to the left. There's a body with a Kalash and some 5.45 ammo in the dead

    |_________________________________________________________________|

This Merciful walkthrough includes turning off the generator and going through
the rest of the level without killing any enemies.

Start out by talking to Ulman. Loot the ammo from the enemy that Ulman killed.
Ulman leaves you a VSV rifle. Sneak past the tripwires, cracked glass, alarm
cans, and loose boards to get past the first two guards. You get a Discovery
Point for listening to their conversation. Blow out the lantern in the
passageway. Sneak up to the crate.

Wait for the guard to walk around the corner. Shoot out the overhead light with
a silenced weapon. Go to the left and around the corner. Go straight ahead
along the left wall and wait in the corner. Shoot out the lantern. Wait for the
guard to walk past you and go into the passage on your right. Go to the left
past the crate. Go left and sneak across the boards to the other end of the
room. Stop at the top of the short ramp that leads down on the ledge along the
side of the room. You get a Discovery Point for learning about the generator.
Sneak down the ramp and quickly shoot out the light on the left. If you go the
the right you can get a Medkit. Go through the hole in the wall without bumping
into the alarm can. Quickly drop down to the ground. There's a body under the
stairs with a Medkit and +3 BULLETS.

Look through the two gates towards the subway car. Wait until the guard by the
subway car walks away. Go through the first gate and take the first right.
Shoot out the lamp in the doorway. Look through the doorway and back up as much
as possible. Wait for the guard to go back through the doorway at the other end
of the hallway. Sneak down to the doorway and shoot out the overhead light in
the room. Quickly go back to the other end of the hallway. Wait for the guard
to walk into the room again. Sneak down the hallway. Enter the room and go to
the right. Sneak around the boxes and sabotage the generator. Quickly sneak out
of the room and go back to the bottom of the stairs.

Wait for the guard by the subway car to walk away. Sneak through the two gates
and extinguish the lantern. Quickly sneak into the subway car and go to the
right. Hide in the corner on the right. Wait for the guards to relax before
moving. The enemy by the subway car may walk into the subway car, but as long
as you stay hidden in the corner he won't spot you. Grab the two arrows on the
ground and the three arrows in the improvised target. Wait for the guard to
stop nearby. When he starts to walk away, sneak down the subway car. Get on the
right side and get up on the last set of seats. Look on the opposite set of
seats for a Helsing and another arrow. Follow behind the guard when he starts
to walk away from you again. Go all the way to other end of the subway car and
hide in the right corner again. The guard almost always hears something and
checks the inside of the car. Wait for him to walk away. When he's near the
other end of the subway car, sneak out of the car and through the two gates to
the stairs. Go up the stairs.

Wait at the top of the stairs and make sure the enemies are not on alert. When
it looks clear, sneak through the hole in the wall and get back on the wooden
platform on the right. Watch the opposite end of the room for the patroller.
When the patroller turns around and walks away, sneak along the side of the
room. Go around the corner and past the crate. Go straight along the left wall
and hide in the corner. Wait for the guard to walk past you. Go into the
passage on the left and go around the corner. Go straight past the first
overhead light and into the next passage. Go around the corner and hide in the
corner on the right.

Go to [4.7.3 Black Station - Merciful (Quick)] and start at "Method #1" or
"Method #2".

Take off your gas mask. Go up to the gate to talk to Ulman. He leaves you a
silenced VSV rifle. Loot the body of the dead Nazi. There's also Nightvision
Goggles in the corner. Go into the passageway. Try not to crunch glass
underfoot, disturb the cans, or trigger any traps. Sneak past the two Nazis
while they are talking. Finish listening to their conversation for a Discovery
Point. Go into the lit hallway and blow out the lantern.

Sneak up to the crate. Wait for the guard to walk around the corner. Shoot out
the light and go to the right. Sneak down the passage towards the next pair of
guards. Go through the hole in the wall on the right onto a wooden platform.
There are two ways to go from here.

Method #1
-----------
Drop down and go to the left. Run past the enemies and go up the escalators. Go
into the tunnel on the left. Run past some more enemies and go into the doorway
on the left. Run past the lamp and the sandbags and go down the stairs. Drop
down into the sewer tunnel. Put on the gas mask. Navigate past the traps and
follow the path until you reach Pavel. Get in the rail car. Stand still or walk
towards the Dark One during the vision for a Discovery Point. Run away from the
Dark One if you don't want a Discovery Point. Go to [5.1 Polis]

Method #2
-----------
This way is a little bit more involved. Drop down from the platform and run
along the subway tracks on the right. Go through the doorway on the left with
the lamp. Go down the stairs into a storage room. There's an Automatic Shotgun
on the crates in the center of the room and a Medkit in the corner by the
broken wall. Go through the broken wall in the corner into a sewer tunnel. Put
on the gas mask and go to the left. Go into the room on the right with the
sparking electrical cable. There's a filter in the wall locker. Sneak up the
staircase.

Shoot out the light at the top of the stairs. There is one mumbling guard by a
lamp a couple of rooms ahead. Listen to him for a Discovery Point. Sneak
through the first doorway on the left. This is where Ulman met you at the start
of the level. Check the lockers for some sniper ammo. Sneak out of the room so
you can see the enemy by the lamp. Shoot the helmet in the room before him. The
enemy will stand up, then walk away after a few seconds. Go into the room with
the lamp and extinguish the light. Go into the bathroom on the right for some
revolver ammo on a backpack.

Sneak into the big room. Shoot out the light on the left just as you enter the
room. Listen to the story about Metro 2 for a Discovery Point. Sneak to the
right following the wall. Wait by the scaffolding. When the patroller walks
into the tunnel, sneak forward and go through the doorway on the right. Go down
the steps. Drop down into the sewer tunnel. Put on the gas mask. Navigate past
the traps and follow the path until you reach Pavel. Get in the rail car. Stand
still or walk towards the Dark One during the vision for a Discovery Point. Run
away from the Dark One if you don't want a Discovery Point. Go to [5.1 Polis]

    |  It's hard to describe my feelings at that moment...exhausted,  |
    |  yes, but joyful - I had made it! Once I delivered Hunter's     |
    |  message, the rescue of my home station could be decided by     |
    |  those stronger and wiser than I. And my task would be over.    |
    |_________________________________________________________________|

You finally make it to Polis Station. Polis is bigger, brighter, and cleaner
than any other station you've visited. Follow Ulman into the checkpoint. Listen
to the Captain. Ulman goes to look for Miller and returns a couple of minutes
later.

There is a trader selling a Heavy Suit, an ammo exchange trader, and a weapon
trader. Deal with the traders before approaching Miller. This is the only time
you can get a Kalash 2012 with a scope and silencer and still have enemies to
face. The Helsing is useful in the library if you plan on fighting your way
through there. You can get a free Automatic Shotgun with Bayonet later.
Exchange any unusable ammo. Sell all of the sniper ammo. If you don't have a
Helsing, sell all your arrows. You can also sell the majority of your revolver
ammo. Hold on to about 100 shotgun shells and sell the rest. Keep all your 5.45
ammo.

Put on your Gas Mask. Go to the left. Loot the ammo and +10 filter from the
body. Go back to the start. Use the pipe by the car to cross over the
radioactive water. The rusty pipe breaks apart under your weight. Use the other
pipes to the left to stay out of the water. There's a blue object in the water.
Jump down on the blue object and use the boards and slab to get up on the ledge
with the body. Watch out for the demon that lands next to you and attacks you a
couple of times. The body has some ammo and a <Revolver with stock, optics, and
silencer>. Look to the left and go down the manhole into a tunnel. Use the
Combat Knife to break the icicles. Exit the tunnel to the surface. Go all the
way to the left to the body with an arrow, ammo, +5 BULLETS, and a Kalash. Go
back to the blue object. Use the pipe and boards to get up to the surface.

Go to the left and go past the wrecked vehicles. Kill any nosalises along the
way. Go into the back of the white truck on the right for a large ammo cache.
There's sniper ammo, three arrows, throwing knives, +4 in BULLETS, and a Kalash
in one of the supply crates. Exit the truck and look to the left by the van.
There's a body with a Gas Mask, 5.45 ammo, and a +10 filter. Go past the bus
and go to the left by the delivery truck. There's a body with a +1 BULLET. Move
up to the wrecked car on the right. Turn to the left and go up the steps of the
library. A demon flies down and attacks you. Go up to the wall and go all the
way to the left. Go down the stairs. Use the combat knife to break through the
icicles. Go into the sewer tunnel. Sprint to the other end of the sewer tunnel
to a cache. There's some ammo, a grenade, throwing knives, and +5 BULLETS.
Sprint back to other end of the sewer tunnel and go back to the surface.

Follow the wooden boards to get out of the depression. Stay at the bottom of
the steps. Part of the library crumbles and smashes down onto the steps in
front of you. If you go up the steps immediately, the falling debris kills you.
Go up the steps and go to the right. Near the entrance are two dead bodies in a
snowbank along with a Revolver, Gas Mask, and some ammo. You meet up with
Miller and another ranger, Danila, at the entrance. Before going into the
library, turn around and look to the left. Go to the white van that's on the
left side of the statue. There's a supply case inside the van with shotgun ammo
and +5 BULLETS. Approach the library entrance to end the level.

    |  Upon entering the Great Library, I was in awe. It seemed like  |
    |  a fairy tale castle, and as in the old stories, its treasures  |
    |  were guarded by monsters.                                      |
    |_________________________________________________________________|

There's a body by the doors with a filter. Go down the hallway with Miller and
enter the library. Danila and Miller will hold the doors until you find a way
deeper into the library. Go to the right for a body with ammo, a Kalash, and a
filter. Go up the stairs. The door in front of you gets closed and barricaded
from the other side. Go to the right. There's a filter by the carnivorous
tentacle. Shoot the tentacle and it will curl up towards the ceiling. Grab the
filter. Run past the other ceiling tentacles. There's a corpse with an
<Automatic Shotgun>, a filter, and some ammo. Sprint past the other tentacles.
Loot the body on the slab for some 5.45 ammo. Jump through the hole in the
wall. Pick up the 5.45 ammo from the body on the left.

Go to the door on the right. Look through the hole and shoot the board that's
barricading the door. Danila and Miller will let you out of the room. Exit the
room and go to the left. Jump over the broken column. Break through the broken
door on the right. Go into the room and climb up the bookcase leaning against
the wall. Look up through the broken wall and shoot the chandelier. The
chandelier swings down and breaks through the next door.
    !Steam Achievement Quick-witted

The body in the room has a <Revolver with stock and optics> and some revolver
ammo. Go back through the broken door. There's a body by the window with an
<Automatic Shotgun>. Go into the chandelier room. The body at the bottom of the
stairs has a Duplet and some shotgun ammo. The body on the right has a filter,
revolver ammo, and a <Revolver with Extended Barrel>.

Go up the stairs to the next room. Go up the stairs on the right to find
another body. Miller and Danila are on the right side of the room below the
upper level. We missed Miller and Danila fighting a demon, and seeing Danila
almost getting carried off by the demon, but getting dropped hard on the ground
instead. We also missed Miller giving some crucial information on how to deal
with the Librarians. First, Librarians won't attack if you face them.
Librarians always attack if you turn your back to them. Second, slowly back
away when a Librarian approaches you. Doing both of these things prevents most
Librarian attacks. Miller has to take Danila for medical help and leaves you to
face the Librarians and find the secret military archives.

Go up the stairs on the right side of the room. Climb up the card catalog to
the upper level. You can pick up some shot gun ammo by the Duplet at the left
end. Go through the doorway. Watch out for the ceiling tentacle. Go left to the
other end of the hallway. Break through the broken door. Go through the doorway
to end the level.

There is a librarian right in front of you. Go forward past the staircases and
go to the right. Look behind the overturned bookcase for a body with pistol
ammo and a <Revolver with rifle stock>. Go across the room to the desk with the
lamp. Behind the desk is +5 BULLETS and a Throwing Knife by a body.

Okay, now go down the stairs and go towards the librarian. The exit to the room
is the door on the right side of the room. The body in the room has some
shotgun ammo and a gas mask. Do not turn your back on the librarian. Once a
librarian starts to attack you, you have to kill it or run away. Circle around
the librarian. If the librarian approaches you, back away slowly. Don't get
backed into a corner. When the librarian starts to pound the ground with its
fists, stay still. The librarian eventually walks away and jump up into the
ceiling.

There is another librarian past the broken door in the hallway. There is
nothing in the room on the left. Go to the T-intersection. There's a body to
the right with a +5 filter and a gas mask. Go to the left and go through the
open doorway. A librarian uses a slab to block the doorway once you enter the
room. There's a dead soldier in here with revolver ammo and a Revolver. Go
through the broken door to the next room.

Going past the big hole in the ceiling triggers the third librarian which
breaks through the door on the left. Back into the previous room and the
librarian should jump into the ceiling. Go back to the hallway. The room on the
right has a filter on the floor. Go into the room on the left. On top of the
filing cabinet is a +2 Medkit. Go through the hole in the wall and through the
door to the bathroom. Loot the body for some shotgun ammo. There's an
<Automatic Shotgun> and a filter by the body. On the other side of the doorway
leading to the urinals is +5 BULLETS. Approach the hole in the wall and grab
the shotgun ammo. You get grabbed by a librarian. Go through the doorway to the
right of the hole in the wall and exit the bathroom.

There's another librarian in the hallway. Go down the hallway and go around the
corner to the right. There's a body at the foot of the stairs that might have a
gas mask and a filter. Go up the stairs and go to the left. There are three
arrows you can get by the hole in the wall. Turn around and go past the hole in
the floor to the windows. A librarian jumps up behind you. After you've dealt
with the librarian go past the large square hole and the next hole in the floor
and jump down the third hole. In the left corner you can find +5 BULLETS and a
+5 filter. Climb up the leaning bookcase to get back to the upper floor.

Crawl through the hole in the wall. You can get some sniper ammo, a +5 filter,
a Medkit, and a gas mask from the body. Open up the metal gate and exit the
room. Go around the corner to encounter another librarian. Go through the
doorway on the left. Go through the room and go through the doorway on the
right. You're now above the room where you encountered the first librarian. Go
to the side of the room with the windows. Head towards the elevator. A
librarian knocks you into the elevator and kills a demon. The elevator gets
knocked down to a lower level. Pick up the +3 Medkit from the floor of the
elevator. Crouch down to exit the elevator. Deal with the librarian in the
room. Go through the door opposite the elevator to end the level.

    |_____________________________________________________________|

Take off the gas mask. Hop over the wooden structure to the left. There's a
body with revolver ammo and a Medkit. There are two librarians in the next
room. Wait for one librarian to leave. Enter the room. There's an arrow in the
column. Go through the gate on the right and deal with the other librarian. The
partially eaten body has a clip of 5.45 ammo. There are two arrows in a
bookcase. Exit the room and go down the hallway.

The broken staircase is unstable and will fall apart when you walk across it.
Quickly jump and run to the next staircase. There are ledges on either side of
the stairwell that you can jump to for some added safety. At the bottom of the
stairwell climb up the ladder.

The next room has a librarian. Go down to the lower level. There's a little
room in the far left corner that has a ribcage with some 5.45 ammo. Get onto
the ventilation shafts. You can climb up the staircase to the top and jump onto
the ventilation shaft. The other way is to use the slabs and wooden boards to
get to the dual pipes. Crouch down on the dual pipes to get on top of the
ventilation shaft. There are two bodies in opposite corners of the room. One
body has +5 BULLETS and two clips of 5.45 ammo. The other body has some shotgun
ammo, revolver ammo, and a Medkit. Follow the ventilation shafts to the opening
in the wall on the right. Go into the ventilation shaft with the boot. Watch
out for the grabby librarian at the grate on the left. Exit the vent into a
room.

Go down the first flight of stairs and look to the right. There's a sleeping
librarian on the ground. To the right of that librarian is +5 BULLETS. Sneak
down the stairs and drop to the ground. Sneak along the left side of the room.
Go through the opening on the right. There's another sleeping librarian. Sneak
towards the librarian. It should wake up and run away. Go around the corner and
go straight past the glowing stalagmite in the floor. There's some ammo and a
Medkit. Go through the doorway by the stalagmite. Go to the top of the stairs.
Go through the doorway at the top of the stairs. Don't use the wooden boards to
cross the room as they break under your weight. Jump over the gaps.

Go through the doorway and go to the bottom of the stairs. There's another
sleeping librarian in the next room. Go to the right wall. Sneak across the
room and go up the stairs. Make sure not to kick any of the bones on the
ground. You're back inside the library building. Go towards the first doorway
on the right. There's a 5.45 clip on top of the cabinet to the left of the
door. Go into the room. Open the safe to get some revolver ammo and two +5
filters. The other room on the right is empty. Go to the metal door on the
other side of the room. You automatically search through the secret military
archive until you find the information on D6 in the drawer labeled D6. You grab
the D6 dossier and exit the level.

You arrive at Sparta Base. You can listen to the two rangers talking about the
survivors right after the war. There some rangers hanging around the radio. On
the other side of the garage is Vladimir. Here you can pick up supplies and
take any weapons you want.

Vladimir has the following items: throwing knives, Nightvision Goggles,
filters, a gas mask, a Medkit, grenades, sticky grenades, ammo, a Duplet, an
automatic shotgun with bayonet, a Kalash, a Revolver with rifle stock, and a
Kalash 2012. Swap out the Tihar or Helsing for the automatic shotgun with
bayonet. You can also swap out a silenced revolver. You won't need any sniper
type weapons, but you probably want to hold on to a scoped weapon.

Ulman is chopping wood. Go up the stairs. Talk to Khan for a Discovery Point.
Talk to Miller. Tell Miller you're ready to end the level.

    |__________________________________________________________________|

You're traveling in the ranger's train to D6. You have a white out. Walk
forward towards the human figure by the tree. The vision changes and there's a
Dark One in front of you. Follow the Dark One through the gate for a Discovery
Point. If you don't follow the Dark One or walk away from the Dark One, you get
an Immoral Point. You "return" to the train.

The train arrives at the gate. Then, the nosalises come. This is the only time
you can use a flamethrower. Kill at least 5 enemies to get the !Steam
Achievement Pyro. Use the flamethrower on the back of the train to kill the
nosalises. Point the flamethrower down as far as possible and sweep it back and
forth. This should kill almost all the nosalises. Let go of the flamethrower
and kill any nosalises that jump onto the back of the train. The rangers get
the gate open and the train makes it to the D6 station. Follow the rangers to
end the level.

Go into the second room on the left. Grab the shotgun ammo and +28 BULLETS.
There are three filters on another shelf. There's a set of Nightvision Goggles
by the radio in the back of the room. Go down the hallway  and go into the room
on the left. Pick up the +10 BULLETS in the left corner of the room by the
nosalis leg. Go to the gate where the rangers are waiting.

Go to the wall to the right of the gate. The breakers under the light turns on
the rest of the overhead lights in the room. Open the gate using the breakers
on the right side of the gate. The breakers on the left side of the gate are
broken. Stay just inside the gate by Vladimir. You need to protect Vladimir.
Then, the nosalises come. The rest of the ranger squad goes into the room at
the bottom of the ramp. Stay with Vladimir and kill the nosalises that run up
the ramp. The ranger squad moves to the opposite side of the room. Go down the
ramp and follow them. Another group of nosalises attack. Move into the next
room and fight off another wave of nosalises. Protect Vladimir. The third room
also has a group of nosalises. Move up to the gate. Boris gets taken out by a
nosalis. He drops his VSV rifle with a scope. Loot his body for ammo and move
on to end the level.

There's a Gas Mask on the right. Go into the room on the right for shotgun ammo
and +30 BULLETS. There is also two filters in the crate that I couldn't pick
up. Join the rangers at the gate. Put on the gas mask. Look at the crates to
the right of the gate for +2 BULLETS. Follow the rangers down the stairs to the
pool. Fight off the two waves of nosalises. There's a Gas Mask and a Medkit on
the left side of the room.

Go to the right side of the room and go down the passage. Take off the Gas
Mask. The rangers open a gate and send you in alone to find the control panel.
Crawl under the gate and it slams shut behind you. You get trapped in a room
with an armored nosalis. The armored nosalis doesn't like light so keep the
flashlight turned on it to keep it away from you. Stay calm and kill the
armored nosalis.  Go into the next room and grab the ammo and +15 BULLETS from
the crate.

Exit the room to a hallway. Go right. Use the combat knife to break open the
door to the bathroom. Loot the body for 5.45 ammo. Exit the bathroom and go
left. Follow the hallway and break through another door with the combat knife.
Go left and break through another door. Loot the arrows from the crate and +44
BULLETS from the safe. There are a couple of filters. Break through the door by
the safe. Exit the room and go straight into the hallway. Go left and follow
the hallway to a manhole. Climb down the ladder into the sewers. Put on the gas
mask. Go down the sewer tunnel with the glowing fungus at the end. Go through
the broken wall on the right into a tunnel.

Go up the tunnel to the cave. Take off the gas mask. There's an armored nosalis
in the cave. Kill it before continuing. Go around the upper level to find some
arrows and a crate with some ammo and a Medkit. Go back around and go down the
wooden planks to the metal platform. Loot the weapon next to the body for +18
BULLETS. Go down the steps. Run across the metal walkway into a room. Use the
breakers next to the door to open the door.

Go through the door and go left to meet up with the other rangers. Stefan, the
other redshirt ranger, died while you were in the cave. There's a Gas Mask next
to the gate. Then, the subway comes. Board the subway to end the level.

    |  We were close to D6 now. It was hard to believe that we'd  |
    |  found the legendary Command Center. But, was it worth so   |
    |  many lives? Soon, we'd know the answer...                  |
    |_____________________________________________________________|

Put on your gas mask. Miller hands you a filter. Exit the subway. Vladimir and
Ulman get to stay by the subway. Follow Miller to the right and go down the
stairs to the lower platform. Go through the first open subway door on the
left. Cross over to the next subway train. Don't get electrocuted. Turn right
and go to the control booth of the second subway train for a cache containing a
Kalash 2012, a Gas Mask, a +10 filter, and +50 BULLETS. Exit the second subway
train onto the opposite platform. Go down the steps. Run around the giant hole
and go up to the top of the staircase. Join Miller in the control booth.
There's a locker in the control booth with some 5.45 ammo, a Gas Mask, and a
filter.

Now to turn on the air filtration system. Open the door of the control booth
and go up the stairs. Run around the circular walkway and use each panel to get
access to the starter motors. Notice that each panel is numbered from 1 to 4.
The white number appears to the right of the yellow electrical symbol. Listen
to Miller's instructions to start the motors in the correct order. Target the
red square button on top of the motor. Hold down the [E] key until the motor
starts up. The sequence is random.

Go back down to the control booth. Watch out for the walkway on the way back as
it collapses. Take off the gas mask. Follow Miller out of the control booth and
down the stairs. Don't go all the way down the stairs. Walk onto the subway
platform. Crouch to get onto the transport platform with Vladimir and Ulman.
The platform slowly spirals down into the central shaft.

Exit the platform when it stops. Look in the cab of the nearest yellow vehicle.
Use the switch to turn on the vehicle. It crashes into the gate and rams the
gate open. Run to the right. Check the little yellow vehicles. One of them has
a Kalash 2012 and +42 BULLETS. Go back to the rangers. Go through the open
gate. Check by the crates on the left side of the room for a Kalash 2012 and a
supply crate full of books. Go into the control booth. There's another supply
case with copies of the Metro 2033 books. Grab the +42 BULLETS off the cart by
the door. Exit the control booth and go down the hallway to join the rangers in
the Control Center.

You can take off the gas mask. There's a supply shelf on the right side of the
room with lots of 5.45 ammo, a Kalash 2012, a +2 Medkit, a Gas Mask, and a
couple of +5 filters. So, guess who gets sent to manually start up the reactor
in the lowest levels. Plus, everything has to be shut down to power up the only
platform that goes to the reactor. It was a dark and stormy night, and the moon
was full. Follow Miller and Ulman back to the gates. Then, the amoebas come.
Well, just two. Miller decides to leave Ulman with Vladimir. Go through the
gate and start running to the right. Follow Miller around the central shaft and
join him on the transport platform.

Stay on the platform once it stops. Turn around and use a scoped weapon to
destroy as many amoeba spawners as possible. The amoeba spawners are pulsating
green-blue blobs on the floor and walls. There are four spawners on the floor
through the "b4" opening. There is one wall spawner and two on the floor in the
"b3" opening. Exit the platform. Check out the little yellow vehicle to the
right for a packed cache: Kalash 2012, shotgun ammo, 5.45 ammo, +15 in BULLETS,
+10 in filters, and a squeaky doll.

In the next part, you get rushed by amoebas. These greenish translucent spheres
explode when they get close and cover the area in toxic amoeba jelly. Amoebas
spawn from pulsating green-blue blobs on the floor and walls. Your job is to
destroy the spawners as Miller kills the amoebas with his electric shotgun.
Miller can survive as long as he doesn't get overwhelmed by respawns. Also,
stay far behind Miller as this prevents him from constantly walking forward and
getting killed. Let Miller get out of sight. Stay up against the right wall and
move forward a little bit. There are some spawners you can destroy before
Miller starts walking forward. Follow behind Miller and destroy any spawners.
Let Miller kill the amoebas.

Check the supply crate that's leaning against the yellow vehicle for 5.45 ammo,
shotgun ammo, a Kalash 2012, and a couple of filters. There are two wall
lockers to the left of the lift. One wall locker has a book. The other wall
locker has a Medkit, two filters, and a Gas Mask. Go into the lift to end the
level.

    |  Going down to the heart of the ancient citadel, I felt a chill  |
    |  in my soul. What man had the right to name himself the master   |
    |  of D6, and the devastating weapons it controlled?               |
    |__________________________________________________________________|

Put on your gas mask. Miller takes away all of your grenades. Run out of the
lift before Miller and get ahead of him. This is Miller 2: Electric Bugaloo.
You have to get through another bunch of amoebas. This encounter is more
difficult than the previous amoeba encounter. Kill the amoebas first, then kill
the spawners. Try to stay ahead of Miller, but don't get too close to him.
Miller always destroys amoebas after they get in close. You don't want to get
covered in toxic jelly. Try to destroy the spawners in front of Miller first
and then check your back.

Another way that seems to work pretty consistently is to run ahead of Miller
all the way to the ladder. Run and jump to stay away from the amoebas. This
will draw most of the amoebas to you. Destroy spawners starting from the ladder
and working back to the lift. This way Miller doesn't get rushed and you
destroy most of the spawners before Miller gets to them.

Miller climbs up the ladder. Go back to the beginning to loot all the items.
The supply shelf near the elevator has Gas Masks, a Revolver, a +2 Medkit, a
bunch of 5.45 ammo, and two filters. There's a wall safe packed with 5.45 ammo
and +30 BULLETS. There's another supply shelf with a Kalash 2012, a VSV rifle,
5.45 ammo, a Medkit, a Gas Mask, and filters. Climb up the ladder. Take off the
Gas Mask. Join Miller in the control booth.

Press the red button next to the door to the right side of the control booth.
Exit the control booth. The goal is to run past the tentacle monster and climb
up the ladder on the other side of the room. Run down the stairs and run past
the biomass. Don't fall off the platform. Climb up the short ladder that's
between the yellow and black stripe strips. Climb up the other ladder to the
platform.

Press the red button on the left side of the door to enter the crane control
cabin. Use the W,A,S,D keys to move the crane. Look at the control panel in the
lower left corner of the screen. You may need to move the mouse around to make
it visible. The control rods are the three blue targets with a dot in the
center. The crane is a red marker with a green target in the center. You need
to move the crane so the blue dot is in the center of the green target. The
computer tells you when the crane is lined up correctly with the control rod by
saying "Contact zone reached" and the red markers around the green target
disappear. Hold down the Left Mouse Button to lower the crane. The control rod
is raised automatically. Hold down the Right Mouse Button to raise the crane.
Raise all three control rods.

Moving over the biomass causes it to attack. Go straight from A10 to A1. Move
over to D1 and raise the first control rod. Move down and raise the D4 control
rod. Move across and raise the final control rod at H4. The biomass starts
attacking after you raise the first rod. The third control rod by H4 can be a
little tricky since the biomass keeps knocking you off target. Just keep
lowering and raising the crane and use the movement keys to make fine
adjustments until you lock on. After you raise all three control rods, move the
crane back to A10 in the lower left corner of the crane control panel so the
crane marker is to the left of the four red boxes. Press the [E] key to exit
the crane control booth. Climb down the ladders. Sprint past the highly
radioactive reactor to the control booth. Follow Miller down the passage and
enter the lift to end the level.

    |  "By fire and sword we'll take back our world.." Miller believed  |
    |  this, and was ready to die for it. But I was filled with doubt.  |
    |  We had already scorched the Earth once. Now, the fire was in my  |
    |  hands, and I had to carry it through.                            |
    |___________________________________________________________________|

Go down the tunnel to the control booth. Open the locker for some 5.45 ammo.
The gas mask and filters are gone. Exit the subway control booth and follow
Miller down the stairs. Don't go all the way to the bottom of the stairs. Go
onto the subway platform. Ulman meets you by the subway. There's an open supply
crate on the floor with a Gas Mask, a filter, a Kalash 2012, a Revolver with
Extended Barrel, revolver ammo, 5.45 ammo, arrows, three grenades, and +50
BULLETS. Pick up the guidance system, the box with the tripod, to the right of
the supply crate. Apparently, you carry the guidance system in your pocket.
Enter the subway car and stand next to Miller to end the level.

    |  Miller and I left the train, then climbed up the tunnel to the    |
    |  Korolev Performance Hall. We were close to Ostankino Tower, now.  |
    |  In the frozen streets, we joined the other Rangers in the         |
    |  furious battle that began my story...                             |
    |____________________________________________________________________|

You should recognize this sequence from the Prologue. Put on the gas mask.
Switch over to the Military Grade ammo. Get the ammo from the supply crate,
including +210 BULLETS. Fight off the nosalises. Then, the demons come. This
time Miller saves you with his electric shotgun. Loot the two bodies of the
dead rangers.

Follow Miller and stay close to him. Do not run ahead of Miller as this gets
you killed. Lagging too far behind Miller also gets you killed. Miller runs a
little bit then stops. Kill the nosalises when Miller stops. If the gas mask
gets broken completely, there are a couple of bodies on the way where you can
get a better gas mask. Go into the building for supplies. There's a wall locker
on a chair that has a Gas Mask, a filter, and a Medkit. Inside the booth is a
supply crate with ammo and grenades. Exit the building. Follow Miller outside
to a covered, fenced-off area. Fight off another group of nosalises. Follow
Miller to the ground floor of the tower. Get into the elevator with Miller to
end the level.

    |  The elevator delivered us to the top of the tower. For decades,   |
    |  news was broadcast from this place. But whether today's news      |
    |  would be good or bad, depended entirely on us. Once we installed  |
    |  the guidance system, our mission would be over. But plans were    |
    |  made to go wrong.                                                 |
    |____________________________________________________________________|

You fall off the elevator. Get in the elevator to avoid the demon. After the
demon flies off, exit the elevator and go to the right. Like there's any other
way for you to go except down. There's a Gas Mask and filter by the edge. Climb
up the white cabinet and drop down into a little section near the edge. The
demon comes again. Go right between the cabinets or computers or equipment
racks. There's a wall locker with a Gas Mask, a +2 Medkit, and a filter.
Continue towards the right. The demon attacks again when you get close to the
windows. A cabinet gets knocked down behind you that prevents you from
backtracking.

Crawl under the next cabinet. Stay along the outer edge. Jump over the huge
hole in the floor. Keep going and Miller tells you there's a staircase nearby.
The staircase is located near the outside of the tower and looks like the
scariest staircase ever created. Go up the stairs and go straight. Keep going
and you'll rejoin Miller.

Miller gets wounded by the demon. Kill the demon. Loot the ammo from Miller's
gun. Go to the railing and go left to the elevator. Climb up the concrete slab
opposite the elevator to get to the next level. Jump over the gap and grab onto
the ladder that's on the outside edge of the tower. Start climbing up. The
ladder starts to break apart. Start tapping the [E] key, and keep tapping the
[E] key, until you make it to the top of the tower. There are three separate
quick time events and if you don't tap fast enough, you fall to your doom.

Go along the walkway to the doorway. You can go down the stairs for a couple of
filters. Go up the stairs to the top of the elevator shaft. You hear the Dark
Ones. What you hear depends on how enlightened you are based on your actions
during the game.

    Default Ending                         Enlightened Ending

    "...he is here..."                     "...he is here..."
    "...he brings death..."                "...can hear us..."
    "...he's coming to destroy us..."      "...can understand us..."

Cross the room and go outside. Go to the left. That snarling and grunting is a
demon. Climb up the metal sheets. Go inside the tower. Jump across to the
platforms. The platforms collapse! Start tapping the [E] key to climb up the
cables. Keep tapping the [E] key until you are standing on something solid.
There's a filter at your feet. Climb up the ladder on the wall. You have
another vision.

Jump down onto the walkway to the left. Climb up the second ladder to get to
the top of the tower. Walk to the end of the platform sticking out from the
tower to automatically set up the guidance system.

You're on a platform surrounded by four doors. Two of the doors lead to walls.
One door leads to an open dropoff. Going through that door kills you. Find the
door that leads to a passageway. You're back at the tower.

You are in a stone maze. Always move towards the white light. Always move away
from the red light. If one of the red entities catches you, you die. If you
seem stuck in an area, turn around and a new passage will appear. Keep moving
through the maze avoiding the red entities. At the T-intersection, go to the
right towards the standing figure. The figure on the ground is a trap.

After you successfully navigate the maze, you are in the stone tunnels. Go
straight. Take the first right. Jump across the platforms. Take the first left.
At the end of the tunnels, you get a Revolver. Hold down the Right Mouse Button
to use the iron sights on the revolver. Turn around, move backwards as far as
possible, and kill the Dark One that is chasing you by shooting the Dark One in
the head and neck area. By backing up, you have enough time to reload the
revolver and get 12 shots off instead of 6. You return to the tower when the
Dark One is killed.


"If It's Hostile, You Kill It" Ending
-------------------------------------
The Dark One lies dead on the platform. The guidance system has already
finished counting down and announces, "Homing procedure complete." The missiles
are launched and the Dark Ones are destroyed. The End.

The guidance system is counting down. If you don't shoot the guidance system
and let it count down, you get the "If It's Hostile, You Kill It" ending. Use
a weapon to shoot the guidance system to knock it off the tower. The Dark Ones
are saved.

    |  journey were their attempts to reach out to us. I don't   |
    |  know if I was the first to communicate with them, but I   |

--------------
Combat Knife
--------------
    LMB - Slash     RMB - punch

A homemade combat knife with knuckle duster. The slash is a quick and
relatively powerful attack. The punch attack has a very short range and more
power than the slash. You can't get silent kills using the Combat Knife as
dying enemies will almost always have a noisy death.

    Idle Animation: You check the edge, point, and the hole in the pommel


----------------
Throwing Knife
----------------
    LMB - throw     RMB - stab
    Hold LMB - power throw

Excellent short to medium range silent kill weapon. One-shot kill when hitting
the back of a target or an unaware target. Not very effective against armored
opponents. Tends to lose power with range. Hold down the LMB before throwing
for a more powerful and longer throw. The stab can be used in close quarters,
but does not always result in a silent kill. Throwing knives can be recovered
after being thrown. You can carry a maximum of 5 throwing knives.

    You can find throwing knives on your journey or purchase them for 10
bullets at any trading post.

    Idle Animation: You juggle the knife in your right hand


-----------
Revolvers
-----------
    LMB - fire      RMB - aim with iron sights/scope

The 6-shot revolver is the standard sidearm. However, with modifications it can
be turned into a rifle or sniper rifle. The revolver is quite powerful at close
range and is effective against some of the nosalises. The revolver has multiple
variants with different modifications.

    Silencer - less power, silently kill
    Scope - increased accuracy with long range shots
    Extended Barrel - increased accuracy at mid-range
    Rifle Stock - performs like a rifle, high accuracy with low kick-back

    Idle Animation: You inspect the revolver and twirl it around in your hand
    Idle Animation (rifle): You switch hands to uncramp your fingers

----------
Revolver
----------
    Trade-In Value: 53 bullets

The unmodified six-shooter. Excellent stopping power at point-blank range. You

A homemade submachinegun that fires assault rifle caliber ammo (5.45x39mm) that

    LMB - fire      RMB - aim with iron sights/scope
    30 round magazine, standard or Military-Grade ammo

Pre-war Kalashinokov AK-74M automatic rifle. The game manual and in-game refers
to this as the AK-47, but the AK-47 uses 7.62x39mm cartridges while the Kalash
uses 5.45x39mm ammo. The Kalash, along with the Kalash 2012, are the most
powerful machine guns in the game. A Kalash can easily kill an armored target
with just two or three shots to the upper chest/neck area even from medium to
long ranges. The scoped variant makes an excellent, but noisy, sniper rifle.

    40 round magazine, standard or Military-Grade ammo

Another pre-war Kalashinokov with a higher magazine capacity than the
traditional Kalash. The 2012 has a bullpup configuration with a top-mounted
ammo magazine, similar to the P90. The Kalash 2012 has been designed to use the
same 5.45x39mm ammo as other machine guns. It comes with an integrated laser
sight. The scoped version of the Kalash 2012 also has an integrated silencer.

    LMB - fire left barrel
    RMB - fire right barrel
    LMB+RMB - fire both barrels simultaneously

A homemade double-barreled shotgun. Extremely powerful at short range, but
hampered by being a two-shot weapon. You can kill multiple targets as the shot
does spread a little bit and some enemies, like nosalises and lurkers, tend to
bunch up together.

                    Hold RMB - overhead smash
                    RMB - stab (with Bayonet)
                    Hold RMB - downward stab (with Bayonet)
    [R] - quick reload of 1 shell with 0 or 1 shell loaded
    [R] - reload up to 5 shells with 0 to 3 shells loaded
    [R] - reload up to 6 shells with 4+ shells loaded
    Hold [R] - full reload

A semi-automatic shotgun with a 6 shell magazine. Because of the structure of
the magazine, the reloading is a bit complicated. The sixth magazine slot is
not always available depending on how many shells are already loaded and how
many shots have been fired.

You can also do a melee attack with the RMB and a power melee attack by holding
down the RMB. There is a variant with a Bayonet which does about the same
damage as the Combat Knife but with a longer range. You usually don't have to
crouch down to hit targets that are crawling close to the ground.

Tihar
-------
    Cost/Trade-In Value:  free / 116 bullets
                           160 / 142  with scope

    LMB fire        RMB - aim with iron sights/scope
    Hold [R] + LMB/RMB - overpressurize air tank

A homemade pneumatic sniper rifle with integrated silencer. You should always
overpressurize the air tank before taking shots. The air tank loses pressure
when shots are fired and leaks constantly when overpressurized. A fully
overpressurized Tihar is quite powerful, but quickly loses power with each
subsequent shot and as the air tank leaks. Armor can deflect most shots from
the Tihar.
    1. Lost Tunnels, side passage
    2. Tihar with Scope, Market Station
    3. Dead City 1, barricaded room in lobby
    4. Dead City 1, elevator cache

    6. Frontline, subway car behind Red line
    7. Hole Station, body by left stairs in main tunnel
    8. Tihar with Scope, Hole Station

    Idle Animation: You inspect the weapon and adjust the front sights

Helsing
---------
    Cost/Trade-In Value: free / 142
                          220 / 196  with scope

    LMB fire        RMB - aim with iron sights/scope
    Hold [R] + LMB/RMB - overpressurize air tank

Another homemade pneumatic weapon. It has a rotary 8 arrow magazine. The
pressure gauge is the red indicator on the side of the weapon. The Helsing is
the most powerful default weapon in the game. Just pumping up the Helsing a
couple of times is enough to kill armored opponents at range. A fully
overpressurized Helsing can kill Librarians with just two or three headshots.
All kills with the Helsing tend to be silent kills, unless you shoot the enemy
in the leg or arm.

Arrows can be recovered for a virtually infinite supply of ammo. Sometimes the
arrows can get stuck in a piece of equipment that gets separated from the body
so you may have to hunt around to recover all your arrows.
    1. Found near the end of Dead City 1
    2. Helsing with scope at Armory Market
    3. Frontline behind Nazi lines
    4. Hole Station, upstairs on the left by the safe
    5. Black Station, in the subway car

    Idle Animation: You check the magazine, safety, and air tank connection


------------------------
Grenade/Sticky Grenade
------------------------
    Cost: 15 bullets  grenade
          20 bullets  sticky grenade

    LMB - throw     RMB - quick underhand toss
    Hold LMB/RMB - let fuse burn down before throwing (cooking off)

A pipe bomb with a five second fuse. The sticky grenade uses nails to stick
into enemies, walls, or ceilings. You can carry 5 grenades and 5 sticky
grenades. You can cook off a grenade to reduce the time to detonation after
throwing the grenade to catch enemies by surprise. Cooking off is inherently
dangerous as you can get caught in the detonation. Grenades are very effective
when tossed into small rooms. Use sticky grenades at close range to kill
demons.

    Idle Animation: You make sure both end caps are secured

    Inquisitor
    ------------
    You automatically kill one demon on the level Top. You can easily kill a
    demon with a sticky grenade near the end of Dead City 1. You can also kill
    two demons on the rooftop of Outpost. Demons are also encountered on Dead
    City 2 and Alley.

    Heavy Metal
    -------------
    Stationary machine guns can be used at the beginning of Cursed, at the
    start of Frontline, and during Trolley Combat. The machine gun at Cursed
    has limited ammo, but an infinite number of enemies. It only takes one or
    two hits to kill a nosalis. There are multiple stationary machine guns
    available on Frontline, but all have limited kill zones. Anything killed
    during Trolley Combat using the MG-Turret counts towards the achievement.


Level Specific Achievements
-----------------------------

0.2 Hunter

    Quick Draw
    ------------
    On the level 'Hunter' kill the nosalises before they break through the
    ventilation grilles.

    Keep moving around the room and listen carefully. You can hear which
    ventilation grille the nosalises are going to attack next. Try to kill the
    nosalises in the vents with a headshot.



1.1 Exhibition and  2.1 Riga

    Generous
    ----------
    Help the poor, a coin for the kid, medicine for the sick. You help everyone
    you see.

    You need to give a bullet to a beggar at Exhibition, Riga, or Market
    Stations. The coin for the kid is the one found at Riga that offers to
    lead you to Bourbon. The medicine for the sick is the man sitting on the
    bench by the teddy bear at Exhibition Station.

    You can't get Generous at the same time as Realist.



2.1 Riga

    Realist
    ---------
    A coin for a hungry kid? Get a job.

    Refuse to let the kid at Riga station lead you to Bourbon.




4.1 Frontline

    Hedge-hopper
    --------------
    On the level 'Frontline' kill all of the enemy Red Army and Fascist
    Soldiers.

    See 4.1.2 for details. The most easily overlooked kills are the
    two soldiers that you pass during the opening scene, the two wounded
    Fascists soldiers behind the Fascist lines, and the three Red prisoners.

    You can't get Invisible Man or Rescue Ranger along with Hedge-hopper.


    Invisible Man
    ---------------
    Complete 'Frontline' without killing anyone.

    See 4.1.1 for details. You can't get Hedge-hopper or Rescue Ranger along
    with Invisible Man.


    Rescue Ranger
    ---------------
    Save a group of 'Reds' from Fascist captivity.

    This achievement is earned at the end of Frontline. All three Reds must
    survive so you have to prevent the Red leader from being killed. Kill the
    Fascists in the area. The leader will stand up when the rescue is
    possible.



4.3 Depot

    Raider
    --------
    On the level 'Depot' silently kill the first guard and break into the
    Fascist station unnoticed.

    You don't need to silently kill the guard. You just need to kill him
    before he gets close enough to the station to alert the soldiers in the
    station.



4.4 Defense and 4.6 Outpost

    DJ Artyom
    -----------
    On the level 'Outpost' reach the radio tower and broadcast the commander's
    message.

    You get the message at the beginning of Defense. You have to take the
    message from the commander after the nosalis attack. The radio tower is on
    the roof of the building on the Outpost level.



4.7 Black Station

    Merciful
    ----------
    Complete the level 'Black Station' without killing any Fascist soldiers.

    There are a few ways you can do this achievement. The fastest way is to
    jump through a hole in the floor near the start and run to the sewer hatch.
    A slightly longer way can be done by skipping the generator and sneaking
    through the rest of the level. The longest way involves turning off the
    generator and sneaking to the end.




5.1 Polis

    Scrooge
    ---------
    Save 500 military-grade rounds.

    You can exchange ammo at a station to get the 500 military-grade rounds.
    The best place to do this is at Polis. Restore the last checkpoint after
    getting 500 military-grade rounds in your inventory.


    Wheeler-dealer
    ----------------
    Exchange 500 Military-Grade 5.45 rounds at Exchange kiosks.

    This can also be done at Polis Station. Simply sell all your ammo to get
    as many Military-Grade rounds as possible. Buy arrows or shotgun shells.
    Sell the ammo to get Military-Grade rounds. Continue to do this until you
    run out of ammo or the achievement unlocks.


    Metro Trader
    --------------
    Make 10 deals in weapon shops.

    The description says weapon shops, but I believe you can buy anything. The
    cheapest items are Medkits, filters, and throwing knives, which all cost 10
    bullets each. Medkits and Throwing Knives have a limited capacity. You can
    buy as many filters as you want, but past a certain limit filters won't
    add to total filter time.



5.3 Library

    Quick-witted
    --------------
    Break the support and activate the chandelier in less than 20 seconds.

    This is done on the Library level. The description is a little misleading.
    You have 20 seconds to shoot the chandelier after you break into the side
    room with the hole in the wall.



5.4 Depository and 5.5 Archives

    Heavy Reader
    --------------
    Kill a librarian.

    This can be done on the levels Depository or Archives.



6.1 Dark Star

    Pyro
    ------
    Kill 5 enemies with a flamethrower

    The only time you can use a flamethrower is at the end of Dark Star.




6.4 D6 and 6.5 Biomass

    Pathoanatomist
    ----------------
    Kill 5 amoebas.

    You encounter amoebas at the end of D6 and the beginning of Biomass.




2.6 Dead City 1 and 2.7 Dead City 2
    Ranger
    --------
    Find all Ranger stashes in Dead City 1 and 2

    There is no clear definition of a Ranger stash. There are the obvious
    supply crates, but just finding all the supply crates is not enough to get
    the achievement. You do need to find the dead bodies, but perhaps not all
    of them. You do need to find some of the ammo that is laying around, but
    not all the ammo. Probably the best definition of a Ranger stash is any
    grouping of multiple items that includes a filter.

    Dead City 1
1) Go up the stairs in the terminal at the start of the level
2) Locate the cache by going through the access panel of the elevator
4) Locate the cache in the back room of the ruined supermarket
5) Find the body on the ledge near the water outside the supermarket



1.1 Exhibition, 2.1 Riga, 2.5 Market, 3.5 Armory
    Metro Dweller
    --------------
    A true metro citizen. You know everyone and have seen everything.

    The exact criteria for getting the Metro Dweller achievement is unknown.
    The achievement can be completed as early as Riga and as late as the
    Armory. The best way to get the achievement is to check all the doors and
    try to interact with as many different people as possible. Stand in front
    of a person and sometimes they will address directly. Some
    conversations start automatically and may or may not count towards the
    achievement. Some interactions result in the flashes, or discovery points,
    but this may relate more to the Explorer Achievement or the Enlightened
    Achievement.

    Explorer
    ----------
    There is no place in metro you did not visit

    The exact requirements for earning this achievement are unknown. I think
    it is definitely related to getting flashes when finding objects on any of
    the levels. I know that you don't need to get all the flashes in order to
    get the achievement. It may also be related to finding hidden objects that
    don't give a flash. Again, not all hidden objects would need to be found
    in order to earn the achievement. The best advice is to find as many dead
    bodies, ammo stashes, supply crates, and flashes as possible.


Ending Achievements
---------------------

    If it's hostile, you kill it
    ----------------------------
    This is the default ending. If you kill your way through the game without
    doing much exploring, you are probably going to get this ending. You can
    also get this ending if you don't knock the guidance system off the tower
    at the very end of the game if you did enough to unlock the Enlightened
    ending.


    Enlightened
    -----------
    In order to unlock this ending, you need to make as many moral choices as
    possible during the game without making too many immoral choices. Moral
    choices are the flashes and a buzz followed by whispering. Immoral choices
    are a grayed out screen followed by an ominous sound.

    See the next section on Discovery Points.

Talking to certain people, finding certain places, and doing certain actions
can cause the screen to flash or gray out momentarily. A flash and a buzz
followed by whispering is a positive discovery. When the screen grays out
followed by an ominous sound means something negative has happened.

These discovery points are related to earning achievements in the game, most
notably unlocking the Enlightened ending of the game. By default, a discovery
point results in a flash, or positive discovery, with no negative consequences
for missing or ignoring the discovery point. A few discovery points results in
a negative gray out only. These are marked as immoral points. Discovery Points
that always result in either a flash or a gray out are marked as Ethical.

All moral and immoral discovery points can be skipped, except for the one for
finding Hole Station. You can bypass the man asking for help buying medicine in
Exhibition Station by not talking to him. You can skip the playground vision by
running out of the playground before the vision ends. All other Ethical
Discovery Points always result in a moral or immoral point.
