Metro: Last Light Achievements

Test Сomplete

Complete the TOWER level.  
After entering the simulation, you’ll be given the ability to choose 3 weapons to take into the arena of your choice. The weapon selection will be sparse at first, but will increase in number as you complete missions. Essentially you’ll want a Kalash, the Shambler and for precision shots either the tricked-out Lowlife or one of the Sniper Rifles when these become available. Though feel free to choose whatever you’re most comfortable with.

Mission 1:
- Choose the only path available
- Will consist of 2 waves of Human Enemies

The arena is essentially a large rectangle with 3 levels, the upper level being merely a catwalk, and the lower level largely being submerged in ankle-deep water. The enemies will initially spawn from the two large doors under the sign that shows what wave you are currently in.

However, positioned around the map are the yellow switchboxes that are used to shut off lights in the main campaign. Enemies can use these boxes to open additional spawn points around the arena. Once these points are open, they cannot be closed by the player.

If the player has Claymores, they can be set up right in front of the two initial spawn points before the wave begins for some easy kills. Then they can stand on the upper level catwalk and kill the soldiers as they spawn in the doorways, taking cover on the right when your health is low. Or post up behind the pillar on left side of the middle level just as you come upstairs from the water-filled lower level. When posted there, enemies will slowly try to creep up on you and can get hung up on the wall. This allows you to pop around the corner and shoot them easily while they are “confused”. Though using this method you will need to keep an eye on enemies creeping down from the upper catwalk across the arena.

Mission 2:
- Choose the path on the far right
- A HUGE zone that will consist of 4 waves of Nosalises

This arena is largely similar to the one in Mission 1, a rectangle with three levels, but frankly, it doesn’t really matter.

The only strategy to employ here is to simply run around the arena and never stop. Really, that’s it. You may end up having to shoot 1 or 2 Nosalises that get directly in your way, but overall they can be dodged very easily. Any damage you take will likely be healed before you ever have to use a health pack. Even the “screaming” Nosalises have little effect with this method.

Simply run around the arena until the arbitrary time limit for each wave expires (there is no timer except the one between waves), the Nosalises will die and the time to the next wave will begin to count down. After completing the 4 waves, the “Willpower” achievement will unlock.

Mission 3:
- Choose the path on the far left
- Will consist of 5 waves of Human Enemies

This arena is largely a box, again with three levels. Make your way up to the top floor and post up behind one of the corner pillars on the side opposite the spawn doors that have the notice above them telling you what wave you’re in. You’ll know you’re on the right side when you find a small, open area that has an ammo cache to open for 40 MGR and a pack of health kits on a pillar to the left of the ammo. In general, enemies will only try to come at you from one direction, however a few will get clever and try to come up behind you. Like the first arena, there are additional spawn points the enemies can open, so you’ll need to keep an eye on them once they are open. Whichever side you post on, you should lay a few Claymores down on the opposite side to mitigate the number of enemies that might try to flank you.

Also, some of the enemies will camp and there are snipers (noted by their green laser sights) that will wait for you to pop out. But keep in mind that, like the Nosalis levels, there is only a finite time for each wave. So if the enemies are just posted up waiting for you, you can simply wait them out instead and end the wave.

Mission 4:
- Choose the path on the far left
- Will consist of 5 waves of Nosalises

When the mission starts, turn 180° and run through the tunnel. You will emerge into a large, square section of the arena with a raised pathway all the way around it. This will be your flight path for the next 5 waves. Simply run around the top of the arena dodging Nosalises until the waves end.

Mission 5:
- Choose the only path available
- Will consist of 3 waves of Nosalises

There is a mingun and extra ammo for it to pick up if you feel you need it, but it will be unnecessary. This room is one giant circle and the only enemies are Nosalises, so employ the strategy of simply running around the room until the waves end. At the end of Wave 3, the achievement will unlock.

does anyone else think this is hard, or is there something im missing? specifically the first (i have no idea if there are others) level where you can buy rangers to help you. my first try was on the hardest rating and died on the last wave. the next 2 lower ratings were just as hard and died the same place.

I am up to the second stage with 5 waves to defeat, I've been unto the 5th a couple of times but have never been close to completing it yet.

Not sure how many waves there are but hoping its just the two.

The first dlc was pretty good, but this one, ewww... it'd be better if you could play online, instead of playing alone. It gets a bit frustrating after a while too.

I forgot to say that I find it quite hard, at least now that I just started it. After the first lever where you fight off the soldiers, I went straight to the last one, the "huge" one, for the achievement. I died on the last wave. So I tried the other two levels, thinking they were easier, but I was damn wrong.

@Lt Fierce, I had the same problem in the previous DLC missions. If you currently have a Campaign in progress of Ranger Mode (where you have no HUD) it effects the DLC missions and you play them in Ranger Mode. Just start a new campaign under Easy or something and you'll have your HUD back.

My advice do it on easy. For the nosalis levels you can run in circles as the guide states it works great. For the human level in the two story arena i recommend hiding above the area where the wave sign is. There should be containers there you can use for cover and it allows you to cover both ramps that lead up to the 2nd story. Buy the extra men and just plant claymores on the walkways leading up and watch the extra spawn doors. The first wave i fought off where you spawn for the most part and then just kept running back there to get ammo after each wave. Behind where you spawn are 3 ammo boxes. I used a kalash 2012, a volt driver, and the preved. Save your grenades if you can and wait for the later waves. For the final level use the minigun and buy both sets of heavy trooper help.

Do the first mission as huge mission.Keep running in circles and if you throw incendiary in front of you,make a little wall.They get hurt and you finish them off.

@#13 - If you follow my guide up there, you'll get it.

I thought it was impossible, too, until I tried the method I shared.

Good luck.

I get to mission 3 wave 4 and I'm still being slowed down by those spitters
I followed the above guide but I'm still getting creamed.
Is there any way to make this easier? I'm playing on easy and its still hard
As hell!!

I finally got the achievement after hours of trying over and over again. It was really frustrating but as long as you keep at it you will eventually get it, I followed the guide above and it did help to an extent. I thought on the nosalies missions I could just run around and dodge until the wave ended but it wasn't possible in my situation. I had to pretty much kill all of them as I was running around. worst dlc I have ever played.
