Metro: Last Light Redux – How to Get Good Ending (List of Conditions)

Good Ending Guide

All credit goes to Mzass!


You all already know that Metro Last Light has two endings:

  • Bad, where Artyom dies destroying D6 and good, where Black helps Artem to keep D6 (most players get a bad ending, because to get it, you just need to beat the game).
  • But to get a good ending, you need to fulfill the conditions. The main thing is to do good deeds and not to kill opponents unnecessarily, but to bypass or stun. And for every good deed there will be a flash (good deed). The more good deeds, the more karma, that is, the chances of a good ending.

I must say right away that you can sometimes kill or not get some kind of flash, but it’s not scary, just do more good deeds and just try not to kill just like that. Fortunately, YouTube has a huge number of guides on how to get through this or that location without killing.

I love games and I live games. Video games are my passion, my hobby and my job. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices. My first official job in the game industry started back in 2005, and I'm still doing what I love to do.


  1. Good guide, although you must correct one thing. Actually Paul is not what he is called. The real name is Pavel.

  2. now imma do 2cd playthrough just to get the good ending and spartan mode that i only need to get left owo

  3. You can actually do about half of those and get a good ending. Some events seem to be key events. For example you always have to save Pavel and help bear. But in my multiple playthoughs I didn’t bother much about not killing – I start stels and try to knock out, but just kill everyone once detected. Also fuck Lesnitsky – he dies. I kill guardians, I kill Demon with cubs etc. Just listen to dialogs, watch cutscenes, find secrets etc.

  4. Did literally all of these except 6, since I killed every enemy besides those who surrendered… So 15 out of 16. STILL got the bad ending. Wow.
