Metro: Last Light – Easy Cash Guide

In this guide, I’ll show you how you can make tons of money which you can use later in the game for buying high powered weapons or supplies.


Are you new to Metro Last Light? Maybe you just got the game today and you have been enjoying your time with it but you can’t seem to find a good source of income and you are constantly running low on MGR. (Money)

Or maybe even you are playing on survival ranger hardcore and you are constantly running out of ammo, filters, med kits and you have no money to purchase any of the three needed items.

Well in this guide i will show you how to easily make money using a certain level, a merchants shop and some of our lovely bandit friends.

Chapter 14: Bandits

Metro: Last Light - Easy Cash Guide

It’s on this chapter where you will be able to perform this money trick. You can start a new game and make it to this chapter whilst saving up some money or just rushing through and not exploring the optional game areas. It will take some time to do it as you need to run back and fourth but if you want to have a lot of MGR that you will be able to use for the rest of the game. Then the time you will put into this trick is worth the trouble.

The Trick

Once Artyom comes to his senses and you get back onto the railcar. You will keep going along the path until you stumble upon a camp of Red Line refuges who inform you that they have a “bandit problem”.

In this small camp there is a weapon merchant and a bit further forward are bandits with three separate occupied sections. Those bandits usually carry highly modified Revolvers, Lolifes, Ashots or Duplets. Deal with them by killing them or knocking them out. How you do it is up to you.

Once you rid of them, pick up their weapons. If you are in spartan mode then you can pick up two of them in place of two of your other weapons. If you are in survival ranger hardcore mode then you can only pick up 1 as the other weapon is your primary and you can’t sell all of your three weapons at once. Just try to remember where you dropped your original weapon. You wouldn’t want to lose it and have to buy a new one.

Now run back to the merchants shop and sell the bandit weapons you picked up. The seller will accept the weapons for prices of 60 to even 80 MGR!!!

Do this how many times you wish. As long as there are bandits and weapons. You will easily be able to finish the game without even dropping to 100 MGR. Of course be smart with the money, don’t go mindlessly buying stuff you don’t need just because you have too much. Remember you can still use the MGR to deal some hefty amount of damage to humans and mutants alike.
