Apparently Metro 2033 has 2 endings with one requiring you to complete various good-guy actions throughout the game. I've read that you need to use a lot of stealth to avoid killing people to reach the good-guy ending. The specific level 'Frontline' was really rough for me so I am wondering what tactics I could use to get through it stealthily.

Patience. And a lot of saving. And a lot of patience. It took me a few hours before I finally got through it. The guards generally follow the same set path every time you reload it. When you get closer to the end, you should be able to just sprint past the last few guards. The extremely difficult part is getting past the fascists (i think its the fascists....the ones that are facing you as you sneak through the level).

Extinguishing the lamps and taking out lights with throwing knives also helps. You can tell which way the guards are facing by the lamps on their heads.

Well, time to take another shot at it. Thanks for your advice. –  ChaosPandion Sep 12 '10 at 19:06

Use this guide video, I used it and past the mission with ease! It pretty much explains step by step how to get past each guard. It's kinda impossible or will take some time to do it your self alone. There isn't any tip that can be given just pacience if you have it.

I hope the video helps.

Please at least summarize what's in the video. That way, if the video ever goes down, this answer still has some use. –  Frank Jun 15 '13 at 14:11
