This chapter in our guide to Metro Exodus focuses on stealing a boat in Taiga.
Leave Olga's tower and follow the path. Use the ladder to go down - you will come across pirates' hideout. Decide whether you want to kill them all or steal a boat without attracting attention. Your choice determines the chapter's ending - if you want to have a happy ending for Alyosha, choose the stealth approach.
Stealing a boat - offensive approach
There are only a few enemies here - they shouldn't be a threat. A few accurate shots will be enough to kill them. Go to the lever and open the gate. Go down and get inside the boat.
Stealing the boat - stealth approach
Use covers to eliminate enemies without being noticed. If you just run around, they will spot you instantly and raise the alarm.
The most difficult part here is to reach the lever. To do that, reach the upper floor first. Keep stunning enemies - the majority of them is standing with their backs turned toward you.
After using the lever, reach the bottom floor quietly and start moving towards the boat. If you stunned the majority of the enemies, you don't encounter any enemies on your way.
Visiting the Admiral
Swim forward - you will come across a few statues depicting humans. Reach the shore and move forward. You see a monster. The Admiral tells you to avoid using firearms. Don't worry, he is bluffing - shoot the creature.
Enter the old warehouse and use the fuse box. Turns out that the power was cut off - you need to bring it back.
Leave the building. Use thermal goggles and then go behind the warehouse. You see cables leading from the fuse box - follow them.
You reach the generator. Activate it - the power is back. Go back to the warehouse and use the fuse box. Enter the lift and go up.
You meet a mad Admiral who lost his mind and is now living with corpses of his subordinates. If you want to, you can sit at the table and listen to what he has to say (this will give you a trophy/achievement).
Next, cut the string and go up the ladder. Use the rope - you will reach the other side. You are very close to the dam.
