— Level description

The Chase is the twenty-third level in Metro: Last Light.


In this level, Artyom and Khan chase down a Hansa train (hijacked by the Red Line) to rescue the Baby Dark One. Near the end of the level, this train inexplicably explodes, throwing both Artyom and the Baby Dark One to the surface. It's revealed in the "Khan" level of the Chronicles Pack that Uhlman and a group of Rangers blew up the train.

    • This may have been just to hide the story early on in development or that the story was originally going to have the Nazis as the main antagonists.
