View Full Version : Replacing mask filter adds 2 minutes to my time? Bug?
03-16-2010, 11:41 PM
I'm currently on the chapter after the Market station, I was warned to bring filters and stocked up on a good few thinking each would give me a full 15 minutes to my time every time it gets replaced. Well, that doesn't seem to be the case as some are adding next-to-nothing to the time I can keep using the mask.
Anyone else getting this?

Just means you have a bad mask :/

My mask isn't cracked at all, though. The game itself is also saying it's fine as it's not giving me the option to pick up other masks on the ground.

I never got more than 7 minutes of air time during my entire play of Metro 2033, despite there being a 15 minute max. I must've missed something.
I do know there are rare upgrades in certain Stations, though, such as improved body armor and filters. Might've just missed 'em.

are you playing on hard? because i also never had more than 5 minutes. was only playing dead city and came back with like 13 filters, so it wasn't really an issue, when you scavenge every ranger stash.

Yeah, I was playing on Hard. I never had an issue with running out of air -- it just would have been nice if I could have had the full 15 minutes per 3 filters, rather than multiple amounts of 5.

With a cracked mask and your filter running out your limited view and heavy breathing really add to the tension though. Sure it would've been nice but I guess the developers weren't exactly going for nice and cozy :D

Wow guys really?
My best mask gave me around 11 minutes!
I found it in D6

Aragh. I must now re-scour D6 and find that mask. ...not that I need to since I beat it, but. I'll probably attempt to do that later. Right now, debating about buying Call of Pripyat. x.x

Are there masks without cracks? I always had one with little cracks in the upper right and the lower left corner and if I had one of these on I couldn't exchange it with a new mask. So I guess they were as good as it gets.
Do you play on hard?
