Armor and Stealth suits
Before entering the train car at Armory Station, you can purchase a Stealth Suit for 100 military cartridges from the vendor across from the Ammo Exchange. There is a vendor next to that one that sells an Armor Suit that decreases damage. Both suits can be worn simultaneously. A similar Armor Suit is also sold by a vendor next to the Ammo Exchange in Polis.Nightvision goggles
In addition to buying the Sneaking Suit at the Armory Station, you can get a pair of nightvision goggles at Front Lines. While in control of Artyom, turn around, and follow the train tracks. The nightvision goggles will be in a red breaker box guarded by two soldiers.Extending filter

1. While in the Library, the two rangers will say the titles of several books. One of them is "Roadside Picnic" (1977) by the Strugatsky brothers, which is the book that Andrei Tarkovsky's 1979 movie "STALKER" was based on, which then was the inspiration behind S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow Of Chernobyl.
2. The first person you can talk to resembles a "loner" Stalker and says "Take it easy bro!"
3. The scene with the campfire with the guitar.
4. The winter mask that are on dead people.
There is an objective in "Outpost" regarding an S.O.S. message from "Defense". Go to the first Nazi controlled building, where a Demon snatches a fleeing Nazi, and fight through the area until reaching the upper level of that building. Find a hallway with three tripwire mines and two Demons. Get past the mines, then check the right room at the end of the corridor to find a ramp that provides access to the rooftop.

You can also perform good actions by exploring the environment, or eavesdropping on the stories NPCs tell in the cities around the metro. You will know you performed a good action when you see a brief flash of white after someone finishes a story or you save the life of a human. The following is a list of some of the actions that cause the gain and loss of morality points.

Search the indicated locations to find and play all 17 musical instruments and get the "Musician" achievement. There are only four types of instruments: Accordion, Balalaika, Guitar, and Piano. Note: There is no progress tracker for the instruments -- so make sure you do not forget any of them. Additionally, finding and playing them through chapter select will not work (even if you play the chapter until the end). You must find and play all instruments in the correct order during one playthrough.
During "The Dead City" chapter, there are a total of seven visions you must see to get the "Back To The Past" achievement. The visions make the world around you feel more alive for a few seconds. Everything will get brightly colored, and the environment will change to what it once was. Four of the visions are triggered automatically, and there is no way to miss them. So only three of them need to actually be found. The first one can be found after the playground vision, once you come out of the underground area, in a house to your right (before the car accident vision). The second one is a woman in the shower in a house on the left, after the car accident vision. The third one can be found when taking the stairs down the roof, in a small side room. You will get the achievement after seeing the seventh vision inside the old Metro.Easy "Forest Guardian" achievement
After the Boss fight with the bear in "The Garden" chapter, you will see some Watchmen attacking the back of the bear. Kill all three Watchmen to get the "Forest Guardian" achievement.Easy "Freedom!" achievement
After going through the prison in the "Pavel" chapter, you will have to use an elevator. You will then be in an office area with a lot of guards. After eliminating the guards, you will need to open a gate with your comrade. Before opening the gate, check the control panel on the right. There is a red switch. Activate it to free the prisoners and get the "Freedom!" achievement.Easy "Patron Of The Arts" achievement
During the "Bolshoi" chapter, you will go through a theater. In the front row, on the right side, is an open seat. Sit down, and wait approximately 10 minutes until the show is over. Do not go anywhere near the exit door. Shortly after the announcer says "Thank you and please come again", you will get the "Patron Of The Arts" achievement.Easy "Rain Man" achievement
During the entire "Bridge" chapter, you cannot kill any enemies to get the "Rain Man" achievement. The chapter is close to the end of the game. You can basically do two things to avoid killing any enemies: sneak around enemies quietly or run through the level as fast as possible. Running is easier and you will not run out of air (your gas mask consumes air over time, and you will die if it is empty). Just do not attack any of the enemies, and try not to get hit -- and use med packs, if necessary.Easy "Reunion" achievement
Shortly after the "Venice" chapter begins, you will have to go to a strip club. Instead of going inside the strip club, go left to find a man offering a mini-game for 10 coins. The goal is to simply kill all the mice within the time limit. Win the mini-game three times, and the man will give you a teddy bear. Give the teddy bear to the child with his mother in the same room to get the "Reunion" achievement.Easy "Revenge" achievement
During the "Red Square" chapter, you will hunt down Pavel. After wounding him, he will be attacked by demon hands. You can either walk towards him to save his life, or stand back and watch him dying. To get the "Revenge" achievement, Pavel must die. Thus, stand back and wait until a new cutscene begins.Easy "Savior" achievement
At the end of the "Contagion" chapter, you will go through a burning area and encounter Lesnitsky. He will be holding a hostage. You can either shoot him in the head or wait for instructions. To get the "Savior" achievement, you cannot shoot him. Just stand still and wait until he tells you to take off your gas mask. Take it off manually, and he will release the hostage.Easy "Scram" achievement
During the "Regina" chapter, you will drive a railcar. Eventually, you will have to push another railcar out of the way. At that point, the Watchmen (mutated dog-like creatures) will attack you. To get the "Scram" achievement, you cannot allow any of them to reach your railcar -- so you have to kill them very quickly. It is recommended to use military rounds instead of the normal ammo, as it does a lot more damage and will make completing this task much easier.Achievements
