This is my ongoing exploration of the Metro series, played in release order, where I will chronicle my playthrough like a text-based Let’s Play. This time I continue Metro Exodus.
After a slight detour on my way to get the passenger carriage, I was well on my way-to another detour…
The problem that I was finding with this wide open space, compared to the cramped spaces of the Metro, was that there was just so much to see, and so many places to go…
Deciding to head for the main objective - get the railcar so that I could collect the carriage. An anomaly formed, sparking electricity all over the place. Heading up the nearest structure, as I wanted a good vantage point and to escape the anomaly, I could hear some noise coming from a big hole in the roof. Upon closer inspection, it was a demon asleep in a nest, not a hole in the roof. I quietly took Nastya’s teddy bear from its place in front of the nest, then as quickly as I dared took the zipline down to the ground.
Safely away from the demon (which were a hassle in past games and I had no intention of tangling with now), an anomaly formed pretty much on me, zapping me and requiring me to leg it away. I was in such a hurry that I almost blundered into some pilgrims - I assumed that they wouldn’t be happy to see me, so avoided them. I located a dead one who had left a note about how they had tried to vanquish an anomaly, and failed, as well as a tape from someone else who had been sent for the same task.
Thinking that I had a way to get the railcar, I went over to an old factory and looked for a way in. Unable to find one, I decided to use a boat to cross the surrounding bit of water. I was going to explore an old service station when I overheard some bandits talking. I quietly sniped the man on top of the station - forgetting that I had uninstalled my silencer. Thankfully, however, a bunch of mutanimals stormed the place, distracting the bandits while I looked around the area. Once the mutanimals had been defeated, I went around murdering the bandits until the final survivor surrendered. As with last time, I left him alive and conscious whilst I looked around and looted.
