The Metro Exodus lighthouse mission bug takes place in the Caspian region of the map, which is chapter six in the game. Players are tasked with mounting an assault on the lighthouse, and you can either take the enemies out silently and stealthily, or go in all guns blazing. Once they’re dealt with, you’re supposed to head to the next area by way of a boat.

That would be the case, except some players are running into a glitch that means the boat doesn’t materialise. Threads such as this one have been popping up on the game’s Steam community forums to query what the problem is. It doesn’t matter if your companion is ignoring you or if they acknowledge you, but either way they fail to lower the boat to you. Players are being trapped in this area with no means of progressing forward with the mission.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the only way to solve this problem is to restart the chapter. Yep, all of that progress you’ve made has been for nothing if you encounter the Metro Exodus lighthouse mission bug.

Failing that, the only other option is to wait until Deep Silver and 4A Games patch through a fix for this bug. You could be waiting a week or two for that to happen, depending on how long it takes to solve though. Either way, you’re going to have to make a less-than-positive decision.
