Metro: Last Light

Metro: Last Light Achievements


Complete the game in Ranger Hardcore.    

Please refer to Ranger Elite for information on how to fix the DLC.

Ranger Mode Hardcore takes your Metro experience to a whole other level. With Ranger Mode Hardcore, everything on your HUD is disabled, so you won't be able to see the action button prompted, or any of the in-game menus to choose bullets, weapons or charge your headlight. Everything still works, but its much more limited. Weapons, ammo and filters are also limited. You will want to scour as many supplies as possible when playing the game so you do not run out of anything. Enemies will also deal more damage, but your guns also deal more damage.

Here are some tips to help you on your way through Ranger Mode Hardcore.

  1. Watch your watch. The little wristwatch is the single most helpful tool in the entire game in Hardcore. Both the timer and the blue light will help tremendously. If the blue light is on, this means that you can be seen by any enemy within eyeshot. If you have your gasmask on, and the timer goes below :59, then that means you have less than one minute left on your current filter. Save as much air as possible to extend your filters.
  2. Stick to the shadows. To accompany the blue light, sticking to the shadows is the easiest way to get through Ranger Mode. Although you do more damage, using ammunition is something you'll want to avoid. You will only want to use your guns in situations where it is a necessity. Being on the surface is one of these places.
  3. On the level "Bandits," you will have the opportunity to kill/knock out the entire level's enemies. In the beginning of this level is a merchant. If you choose to, you can pick up every weapon and every bit of ammo to sell. You will earn well over 1000 MGR, which also deal more damage to enemies.
  4. Stick to one gun throughout. If you stick with one weapon throughout your play through, not only will you be able to sell all other weapons and ammo, you can use this ammo against enemies. Stick with the Kalash (AK-47), as its the only weapon that can use MGR as ammo. The Kalash is also one of the best guns in the game, as well.

Was a day one for me until that stupid ranger DLC get cheevos...
Now I'll wait for a price drop, see if more DLC is coming and (mostly) if the game is as bugged as the 1st one.

At least when you pre-order at GameStop, you get it for free.

Would be nice if normal ranger mode stacks this time.

@2...The ranger mode is dlc that's packaged with the game, at least the limited edition version, so if you pick it up day one, it wont cost any extra.

I guess I need to pre-order the game now to get Ranger Mode.. this actually makes me sad. Hopefully there are some pre-orders still available at the local EB Games.

Wicelow, you're probably safe to assume this will be the only DLC, as Metro 2033 only ever had one also. Gamestop is also offering an exclusive RPK with preorders, which MAY come out as DLC later, but hard to know since they say "exclusive Gamestop."

And about these bugs, I'd like to know what they were with the first game. I pre-ordered it as well and I never had any problems since day 1. If they have changed anything since then, I don't even know what since I haven't played it in a long time.

So they ripped a mode that was in the game already and decided to make it a pre-order bonus? Glad I'm getting this for free.

I actually like the Metro team because they tried to include Ranger Mode in the game without pre-ordering, and were basically forced to make it DLC because everything has to have something for retailers(like Gamestop) to offer. There is a page about this on VG24/7 when I looked up Last Light DLC on Google.

Also, $5 is the lowest amount they were allowed to charge for it as DLC, also, which proves if it were up to them, the full game would come to you no matter when you buy it, without having to DLC, but oh well this world we live in now...

@9 It wasn't part of the original Metro 2033 it was an add-on that came later to up the difficulty of the experience. It's just starting as a pre-order DLC that will most likely be available Day 1 to everyone else to buy, or come with the first run of the game in stores and after that will most likely cost 160-240 MSP just like the other.

I really hope making hard mode a payed for DLC doesn't become a trend. I'll wait for Metro 2nd hand or when it drops in price before buying.

Comment #14 by colderclimate
Tuesday, May 14, 2013 @ 09:27:36 AM

Hang on, you seriously wouldn't buy the game because of an achievement? Shouldn't the game be the reason you want to buy it? Remember when achievements didn't exist but there were still fun games?

Hey guys I seem to have a problem THIS ACHIEVEMENT wont unlock, I have replayed the ending a few times. Still nothing please help.

Comment #23 by Niftynubbie
Thursday, May 16, 2013 @ 08:48:13 PM

Same goes here.......

A major glitch that should have been easily found in their testing.

I don't really won't to replay the whole game again, hopefully that are able to issue a fix and we just that to replay from the last check point.

Comment #24 by WaspyPeach
Saturday, May 18, 2013 @ 05:14:02 AM

It sucks this won't unlock.. and I was going for Shadow Ranger as well which seems to be impossible on ranger hardcore......
Oh well hopefully they'll have some fix for it soon... and i'll just have to do a THIRD playthrough for shadow ranger.

@27 Ya the thing that sucks too is that Im afraid to replay the whole game on Ranger hardcore 2x, just to find out they made a patch to fix it AAAAHHHHH. Well I will give it some time if there's no fix I will probably skip it all together bummer

Good thing I read about this problem. I only played an hour last night so il just restart it on easy.

Comment #30 by bblue2344
Tuesday, May 21, 2013 @ 05:06:45 AM

Can anyone confirm if any of the other achievements get glitched while playing on this mode? I started my ranger elite/ shadow ranger playthrough only to find out about this glitch shortly after. So i would like to continue playing on ranger and go for the no human kills but Im afraid it might not unlock either so let me know if i should restart on original mode before i get to far into it. thnx.

Comment #31 by gotta catch em all
Tuesday, May 21, 2013 @ 04:09:18 PM

@#30Ya the shadow ranger achievement is glitched(at least in Ranger Hardcore) I recommend doing it on easy, simply because its less of a hassle, and even for what ever reason if it doesn't unlock it will be much easier to go back and try again. Ranger Hardcore is very repetitive and it may make your experience to get this achievement very unpleasant.

Comment #32 by bblue2344
Wednesday, May 22, 2013 @ 06:24:33 AM

thnx 31. I really hope they are able to get this patched. Although ive heard rumors that 4A, or Deep Silver, was under financial pressure during development and they are unable to pay microsoft's $40,000 fee to issue a patch.

Comment #33 by gotta catch em all
Thursday, May 23, 2013 @ 01:36:44 PM

#32 aw man I hope they get that patch, I haven't played Metro LL for a while now because the achievement glitch. The achievements, I am missing are difficult to get on Ranger Hardcore.

Comment #34 by WRENCHO
Thursday, May 23, 2013 @ 05:06:35 PM

#33 i havent played for a while either, i want to, but not if the game is broke and have to beat a game multiple times for and achievement, it sucks i loved 2033 and i had a blast beating this one too

I beat the game with no human kill and on ranger hardcore. I was waiting for the Achievements to pop-up. Now am just sitting at the start menu. Well time to play it on easy.

Comment #37 by gotta catch em all
Friday, May 24, 2013 @ 12:01:45 PM

#36 I DONT RECOMMEND THAT because if you start a new game on easy, you will have to replay the entire game on Ranger Hardcore again, with the patch to fix the Ranger Hardcore glitch all you will have to do is replay the last chapter to unlock.(if you dont erase your Ranger Hardcore mode save file)

Comment #38 by gotta catch em all
Friday, May 24, 2013 @ 12:05:40 PM

#34 I simply loved Metro 2033, the thing I find odd is that Metro 2033 had way less bugs, and issues compared to Metro LL and Metro LL has some impressive visuals, and stealth mechanics.

Comment #39 by xLonexWolfx
Saturday, May 25, 2013 @ 03:51:37 AM

This achievement may possibly unlock. The method that I used was to re-download the Ranger Mode DLC. Then I cleared my cache for good measure. Loaded up Metro Last Light and selected continue and the achievement for Ranger Mode Easy unlocked.(That being the difficulty selected) I believe replaying chapter D6 will also work if continue is not an option. Good luck! (To be specific this was done on Ranger Mode Easy not Hardcore. Should work for both. Giving Hardcore a run next.)

#39 i might just try that, all or nothing lol

Saturday, May 25, 2013 @ 10:26:00 PM

I don't understand people complaining about having to play the game multiple times. You can't get all the achievements without doing this anyway. As for glitched cheevos... yes, irritating, but if the game is fun, that's what should matter. If gaming turns into work, what's the point? Or, who cares if you don't get them all? This isn't Pokemon.

Comment #42 by gotta catch em all

Erase 'Preferences' for this game in your hard drive and replay D6 and Shadow Ranger will pop if you only kill the flame thrower and shield guys.

Comment #46 by unknowndarkness
Sunday, May 26, 2013 @ 02:15:03 PM

So I tried deleting my game preferences and beat d6. Got shadow ranger but not ranger mode. I was like alright then. Cleared my cache and got ranger hardcore. Note: I was going for shadow ranger but didn't get it originally

Sunday, May 26, 2013 @ 05:54:15 PM

I am happy that this is working for everybody. I had read somewhere that 4A updated the DLC file. Hats off to 4A for getting around Microsoft's expensive and time consuming patch process. Already purchased the season pass and I am very excited to see what they have to offer in the future. Good luck everyone and have fun!

Comment #49 by needtoboost
Tuesday, May 28, 2013 @ 11:11:42 AM

Just got this, no guide needed. Just don't kill human enemies (although I did kill some in Red Square) and stock up on ammo (always find ammo caches). If you have any questions I could try and answer, message: vG dArK Night96.

Very easy cheevo, buy SeasonPass which comes with instant redeemed weapon the Auto Heavy Shotgun from Metro 2033, that can hold like 20 shells, that means no reloading in high action, high risk of failure situations. Helped a lot.

is this game hard?

Comment #56 by HavfruenArild
Wednesday, July 24, 2013 @ 06:27:27 AM

Found a playthrough of a guy who plays through on Ranger Hardcore without killing anyone, and he's not using any guns until the bear boss fight:

Thought I'd share this with anyone who has trouble completing it.

It also proves that you can complete the train sequence without killing anyone.

Comment #57 by MorbidEclipse24
Wednesday, July 24, 2013 @ 06:34:41 AM

Everything works fine now.. if anyone's wondering. This cheev was surprisingly easy as well. The aksu assault rifle and saiga shotty with some claymores and youll be good. Fun stuff and nice cheevs :-)

Comment #58 by HavfruenArild
Friday, July 26, 2013 @ 10:05:11 AM

Does anyone know if you would void the achievement if you restart the chapter you're currently on?

I got fucked over by a checkpoint on the chase level where I start with very low health and two medkits. I die before I get a chance to use them.

Comment #59 by Zijdenbobo
Monday, August 19, 2013 @ 04:46:30 PM

#58 I'm wondering about this as well. I'm near the end of the game, in the gardens before the "bear" fight, with no ammo and on my final filter.. I'm hesitating to restart the chapter, afraid that it will void the achievement..

Comment #60 by Zijdenbobo
Tuesday, August 20, 2013 @ 05:12:55 PM

I can confirm that chapters select doesn't void your playtrough. I just got both ranger achievements this afternoon, áfter restarting the chapter.
