It was clear that Black Station was occupied by fascists, but Ulman had said he'd wait for me there. I had to risk it.

—Level description

Black Station is a medium length stealth or combat level where Artyom has to make his way through the Nazi controlled Black Station to rendezvous with Ulman, with whom Artyom rides with to Polis. Black Station is one of the more difficult human-enemy based levels as there are many Nazis, and the smallest bit of noise can reveal Artyom's position. There are two possible ways through the station, around through the generator room or through the main platform. The latter is not advised as there are many Nazis there.

OverviewEdit

As Artyom reaches the Black Station, a Nazi aims his weapon at him. Luckily, Ulman takes out the Nazi with a well aimed throwing knife. Separated by a metal fence Ulman leaves Artyom a VSV and urges him to move on so they can meet later. Just like in the mission Frontline, there are at least two ways to complete this mission: sneaking or gunning, both moderately taxing by their own rights. Regardless of however it is achieved Artyom is able to move past the trapped front corridors, evade or eliminate conversing and patrolling Nazis, and navigate through abandoned tunnels. After eventually finding the way to the other side of the fence, and moving past the last patrolling Nazis Artyom is able to locate Ulman and his railbike. Upon climbing in Artyom's dangerous journey nears a close. As Artyom slips into sleep however he has another disturbing vision of the dark ones. The choice involved: flee from the approaching dark one, or stand and wait or walk into it as it approaches. Regardless of the choice, the level will conclude at the end of it.

TriviaEdit

  • The Black Station does not refer to any station on the Moscow metro map. This location is probably a Nazi outpost on the Serpukhovsko–Timiryazevskaya Line, somewhere between Serpukhovskaya and Polyanka stations.
  • It is the last level where you encounter human enemies, this is also the last Nazi occupied area you visit.
  • It is the only level you will find enemies using VSV sniper rifles. 
  • This level gives some good insight on the views of the Nazi soldiers, while also offering many moral points. You can listen to two soldiers talking about deserting and fleeing to Hanza. Another soldier questions the Nazis techniques and atrocities which another, more cynical, soldier tells him that it's just how it is. You can also listen to a group of soldiers talking about Metro-2 and the Invisible Watchers.
  • If you alert the guards before Ulman can finish talking to you, he won't place the VSV for you to pick up. Instead, he will leave the area in a hurry.
