Metro 2033

Metro 2033 Achievements

Last Man Standing

Complete the game in Ranger Mode Hardcore.    

First off, the two new difficulty achievements DO NOT stack. However, you can find a workaround HERE which allows you to finish the game on Ranger Mode Easy and then redo the last checkpoint on Hardcore.

There is only 1 important tip that I'd like to give to anyone that is about to attempt Ranger mode Easy / Hardcore: Filters are consumed very quickly so buy as many filters as you can in Riga station.
You cannot buy any more filters in the rest of the game, and the ones you find will most likely not be enough to last you through Dead City 1 & 2, Outpost and Library.
I think that the maximum amount of filters you can buy is 42 (there is a "bug" here that will allow you to keep spending your money to buy filters without actually increasing the stock of filters in your inventory. So stop at 42).

Also keep in mind that when your gas mask is cracked, the filters last a lot less than their normal duration.

Torm23 is right. I forgot to buy them before I left Polis. I'm pretty sure that I found every filter from then on through the rest of the game, and I finished with just 1 extra filter. You'll be cutting it pretty close if you make it assuming you don't stock up before you leave.

Just finish the game on RANGER MODE HARDCORE mode from the start a new game screen and NO you can NOT stack the difficulty achievements. Ranger mode hardcore needs its own play through.

Good tips are:
If you’re running low on filters take mask off until it needs to be put on and then remove until you find enough filters.

Run through the levels unless you have a team or companion let them take the enemies out to save on your ammo.

Save as much ammo as possible if there is only one enemy ‘you have a big ass knife’

I just beat the game on easy, loaded my checkpoint and changed it to ranger easy and got that achievement then again loaded my checkpoint and set it to ranger hardcore and the achievements popped. You do NOT have to play the whole game on those difficulties if you do not want to.

you can easily have the achievement inquisitor (killing two demons) in outpost, go to the top of the building on the roof outside where you have to broadcast the message you received earlier in the game in Defense level (if you picked up the tape you can have the achievment DJ Artyom) then stay hidden in the small house and w8 for the demons to land, they'll always land at the same area and will come back all the time just shoot and kil lthem with any weapon and that's it !

I think you guys that are going out to dashboard and back in to get the achievment, should really try it out. Ranger Mode Hardcore is alot of fun.

One tip to add on to Torm23's comment on filters. Yes, make sure you max your filters at Market station. However, I ran into a bug or mabye its on purpose but if you get 42 filters for instance, the game wont let you pick up new filters until your down to 1 minute left. I thought I was going to have to restart at d6 after getting the air filters on as the game wouldnt let me pick up any filters.

Once I was down to 1 minute, I could pick them up and finished the game.

#4 is spot on. Best of it all, I was able to get the Enlightened achievement after reloading on Ranger Easy by shooting the laser guidance system, then going for the bad ending again for Last Man Standing. Just need a few more achievements for the 1240g.

Totally still works 26th august 2014!!

but you gotta back out to dashboard and then continue after changing difficulty

although because ei and already played the game before and done both endings, i had to play the whole way through again, i did it on ranger mode easy, just to ensure i get that one at least, it popped, i then did this method but backed out to the dashboard, worked like a charm!! perfect :D
