I'll keep updating this thread as interim solutions to known issues are found.
Steam-related issuesRanger Mode not available in game after unlock
Restart Steam, and try verifying the game cache to ensure everything was downloaded correctly (Library > right-click on Metro: Last Light > Properties > Local Files > Verify integrity of game cache).Can't find the digital novel and I ordered from the US
The digital Metro: 2033 novel should be in \Steam\steamapps\common\Metro Last Light\novel by default.
If you don't have anything there, you can also manually download it by clicking on the "DLC" entry, under LINKS, on the right-hand side of your Library entry for Metro: Last Light. Alternatively, go to the Store page for Metro: Last Light and find it under Downloadable Content.
If none of these solution work for you, please contact Steam support.Can't find the digital comic book
If you pre-purchased on Steam, find it in the Metro: Last Light Steam Library entry on the right-hand side, under "CD Key". Enter it here: https://digital.darkhorse.com/metro/
If you pre-ordered at retail and didn't get a key, contact your retailer.
We're continuously collecting information to find out the cause of issues on specific hardware setups. Try some of these typical and sometimes non-typical solutions in the meantime:Nvidia and ATI control panels
Make sure a setting in your GPU control panel software is not overriding settings in the game.Lower than expected performance on ATI cards
Make sure to turn off Advanced PhysX under Options > Game Options.Drivers
If the latest Nvidia driver doesn't work for you, try rolling back to 314.22.
Make sure your other drivers are up to date, as well (motherboard, peripherals).Game executable crashed on launch
There could be numerous reasons for this (a user's PC config or one specific thing messing with the game). But if you have a wireless headset with USB receiver, try unplugging it and see if that starts the game properly.
See this thread for details: http://steamcommunity.com/app/43160/discussions/0/810924765076291317/Random freeze when starting New Game
Try running the benchmark tool, located in the Steam installation folder.When I start the game, a developer console appears
This is not supposed to happen, but try typing "host 000" in the console to load up the main menu.
Gameplay relatedMy nightvision stopped working
If you used nightvision and after a while the vision starts to glitch, followed by Artyom removing nightvision and refusing to keep it on again: use the battery to charge up nightvision. It uses battery power.Pavel gets stuck
If reloading a checkpoint doesn't unstuck him, try quitting to menu and loading checkpoint. If that fails, restart the Chapter.
