Metro: Last Light – Musician Achievement Guide

Playing instruments isn’t just soothing in Metro: Last Light, it’ll also earn players a difficult achievement. Music is one of the few pleasures left in Metro’s dreary underground setting, taking place in a post-apocalyptic Moscow. The soothing sounds aren’t as numerous as say, Artyom’s Diary notes, but they’re easy to miss.

Finding these hidden instruments will add to the player’s hidden morality score, too. If you’re looking to get the best ending, or just want that achievement, check out the list of locations below.
