Metro Exodus: Tips for beginners
In general, try to avoid combat. Staying realistic about the point in getting dragged into a fight is important as it allows you to save the very limited provisions and also your life. You should only decide to rid an area of enemies if the location is suitable for looting.
Some characters may die. Make sure to follow our walkthrough closely, and also to sneak as much as possible. This will increase the chances that the given ally will reach the end of the adventure alive.
The system of "invisible karma" returns in Exodus. In short, it works by awarding positive or negative points for specific actions. For example, if you do not want to get bad karma, avoid killing opponents who have voluntarily surrendered.
Clean your weapons regularly. Weapons in poor condition perform badly. You can clean weapons in workshops found in the game world.
Some tasks are easier to complete at a certain time of the day. The game allows you to wait and, for example, sneak into a given location after dark, when avoiding detection might be a lot easier.
Exploration of the map can lead to many valuable discoveries. You can not only find various collectibles, but also supplies and items that will be useful for improving equipment. This may be particularly relevant on higher levels of difficulty, where the problem of shortages in provisions and ammo is more acute.
Sniper weapons come in handy on open maps. Some locations in the game world are quite large, which is a start contrast to the suffocating, sealed locations from previous games. Thanks to the sniper rifle, you will be able to effectively get rid of distant targets.
More detailed tips and tricks, as well as tips on subjects other than those listed above, are available at Tips for beginners.
