Count Child

For this stage, you will get a penalty with your controls when a snot-nosed brat uses Artyom like a carnival ride. This means normally weak creatures (like Lurkers) become extremely dangerous when you cannot sprint or aim very precisely to destroy them. Use the first room to get used to Artyom's new dead zone, and notice that aside from the sluggishness of the turning controls, your character cannot sprint (although he can still make small jumps). You will have to change your tactics slightly...

ByB Cuieit 1 Dead City

You will need to keep the gas mask on for this level and the next. If you take off the mask for a period of time longer than ten seconds or so, Artyom will die. Should your mask be damaged or destroyed, and you cannot find a replacement, you might as well restart from a checkpoint, or if your checkpoint recorded the damaged mask, restart the whole level. There is an achievement for both this level (Dead City 1) and the next one (Dead City 2). If you locate all the Ranger Caches, you will...

Y epv k ya Ei he rea I

Both the Ranger and the Enlightened endings have the same outcomes within the labyrinth. Unlike the last level, approaching the homo novus will kill Artyom in this level. For the first portion turn around twice to find the exit. For the second portion turn around when you see the red glow of the hostile (run the other direction). For the section where the hall loops infinitely with the single yellow light, go counter clockwise until you pass the lamp twice, then reverse direction to exit. Flee...

Pipe Bomb Sticky Bomb

Explosives that can be cooked (hold Primary Fire) before throwing. Secondary Fire will throw the explosive underhand (shorter range, and different arc). Stick bombs will stick to the first surface or enemy it touches. Note that mutants tend to run towards Artyom, so sticky bombs on mutants may not be a good idea. Revolver (Extended Barrel) Revolver (Silenced) Bastard (Silenced) First Air Kit Your allied guard will give you his Duplet double barreled shotgun during the stage. Keep it around it...

Reading the watch

The fancy schmancy time-piece you see when you press the Time button is nothing more than your system's clock if your clock was set to 12 34 P.M. then your watch in the game will display the correct time on its main dial.

LlkiiiMiY Bridge

This map will be a test of how smart and observant you are. While parts of the map are seeped in poison, requiring you to use a gas mask, you can actually sprint past the poisonous areas and fight enemies in safe to breathe zones -- basically the top level of the bridge. If you decide to fight enemies while you have a gas mask on, you will irrevocably damage it, and ultimtely endanger yourself by exposing your lungs to various caustic airborne agents. Don't be stupid -- fight smart. You can see...

Lrromui Outpost

If you want the DJ Artyom achievement, you will need to have audio tape from the dying commander from the level, Defence. If not, you are screwed. You will also need to work quickly on this level, especially if you don't have a lot of air filters. Loot the corpse in the tunnel and wear your mask. Head up the slope and turn right. You should see a tool shack you can hide in. Do that if you have the Sneaking Suit. You should see a tool shack you can hide in. Do that if you have the Sneaking Suit....
