How to defeat the bear in Metro Exodus is a pretty pressing question. The monster is truly frightening, and it seems like it can’t be defeated. None of your weapons seem to be able to kill it. So, you’ll have to get creative in order to kill it. Plus, there’s a trophy / achievement on the line, called Master of the Forest. All of that said, here’s our Metro Exodus How to Defeat Bear – Master of the Forest Trophy will show you how to survive these encounters, and how to earn the Master of the Forest trophy.
How to Kill Bear in Metro Exodus?
The fact of the matter is, you can’t kill the man-bear-pig monster in Metro Exodus. You can shoot at it as much as you want, it’s not going to go down. The best you can do is stagger it for a bit. Instead, what you have to do is run away.
Basically, what you have to do is bolt in the other direction from where the bear came a-smashing trough. Then, when you get the chance, double back and juke around the monster. Run to the rope to the left of the now-tattered gate. Cut it by pressing Square on PlayStation 4 or X on Xbox One (not sure what it is on PC; whatever your binding for interaction is).
When the ladder drops down, all you have to do is grab on and clamber up to safety. If the bear catches up to you, you might have to run another circle around the graveyard and then grab hold of the ladder. Getting to safety should earn you the Master of the Forest trophy. Unfortunately, this is not the last you’ll see of the bear.
How to Beat Metro Exodus Bear?
When you meet the monster again, it’ll certainly be in a high-octane situation. The monster will be ablaze, and wreak a lot of destruction in its wake. As soon as the game puts you behind the wheel again, run over to the zipline. In a little bit, the monster will attack again. Unfortunately, you still can’t harm it; fortunately, you’re almost done with it.
As the bear tries to get you, the cliff you’re standing on is going to start crumbling, and the whole thing is going to come crashing down. It’s much trickier than it sounds, though. You’ll basically have to bait the bear into attacking you, and maybe even take some punishment, too; all the while, you have to hope that you’re in the right spot for the bear to fall down the cliff. Once you finally manage to pull it off, you’ll be able to make your way to safety, back to the Aurora. Thankfully, you can forget about the monster now, and instead focus on the other miseries that the game has in store.
And, that’s that, really. If the game is giving you trouble with something else, please feel free to check out some of our other Metro Exodus guides, such as Where to Tune Radio – Join Us on Air Trophy, How to Fix Broken Gas Mask – Martian Trophy, and How to Scrap Weapons & Clean Guns.
