Metro Exodus Guide

This Metro Exodus guide will help you survive its open world apocalypse. As well as basic tips we'll provide a walkthough to all the weapons, maps, endings and gear. This dusty, post nuclear shooter features a lot of choice and things you could miss if you're not even sure what you're looking for. So this guide will make sure you know about all you need to, where to find everything, and what to do when there are options to consider. 

Unlike the previous games this is a much more non-linear game, so this Metro Exodus guide is focused on making sure you don't miss out on anything because you didn't explore some distant corner - the open map has to be scouted manually with binoculars, for example, to find missions and landmarks. If you're not thorough you can miss entire chunks of the game entirely. You can also completely pass by some incredibly important gear and finish the game without every knowing it existed. That's not exactly ideal.  

Which is why this Metro Exodus guide, and the tips and explainers it contains, will keep you don't miss anything and make the best choices as you play.
