Not all users who have passed the new Metro Exodus know that at the level with the Caspian Sea it is necessary to fight not the real Baron, but the impostor. Where is the real Baron and what does his death affect?
The location with the Caspian Sea is rightfully one of the largest of all open locations that exist in the game. And the user, having appeared in a new level, will receive another task - to eliminate the Baron. Only now it is not as easy to complete this task as it seemed, because at the level of the Caspian there are not one, but two NPC characters with such a nickname. Therefore, the majority of users who have played the new part of Metro Exodus have a question - how to find the real character Baron and which of the two Barons is "the one".
How to find the real Baron
In order to find another Baron, it is enough to come to the point marked on the map (the image is attached). This character is hiding in the east of the location, and after the user arrives at the Baron, you can talk to him. And after the Baron tells about himself, it will become clear that now the head is not the real Baron, but the most ordinary impostor.
In addition to the story about himself, the Baron will also talk about plans for the near future, as well as those events in his life that have happened to him and are happening at the moment. At the end of his monologue, he will simply remain standing and waiting for the player's decision. And there are two options - either kill the Baron, or leave him alive and just leave. What is the best thing to do and how will the further gameplay change from this?
Execution cannot be pardoned
In fact, killing the real Baron and Imposter Baron in the game will not affect anything. That is, the user can kill the true leader or let him go, and this will not affect the ending in any way. As for the impostor, regardless of the decision of the protagonist, this act will in no way affect the ending of the game and what will be Artyom's karma.
Perhaps, the user's actions can affect only one moment - namely, the reports of Gul from the Caspian Sea, which Artem can always listen to using the radio. For example, if the user does not kill the real Baron, then Gul will definitely mention this and Baron himself.
As a result, the murder or pardon of the real Baron and the Baron-impostor is a personal matter for each player, which will not affect the game in any way and will depend only on the player's own worldview and desires.
Where is the Impostor Baron
Everything is quite simple here - it is enough to follow the plot of the game, and there it is already impossible to make a mistake. A meeting with the Impostor Baron is guaranteed during the main story mission at the Caspian level, related to the extraction of fuel for Aurora. The impostor will also have to meet with his own personal account, unless, of course, arrange a war with the guards.
