Sword of Damocles is an achievement in Metro Exodus that can be obtained in The Taiga level.


This achievement is obtained by completing the level The Taiga on any difficulty, regardless of the result (based on the collected amount of moral points, there are two possible outcomes. Completing this level with the "good" outcome also grants the player another achievement - Alyosha).


  • The Sword of Damocles is an item from Greek mythology which is often referred when talking about situations that can get fatally worse at any time. In this case, it refers to the damaged dam seen at the end of the level which can collapse anytime and flood the entire valley with toxic water, most likely killing most of its residents and rendering it inhabitable.
