How to Wipe Your Mask in Metro Exodus
Metro Exodus takes you out of the dank Metro tunnels of Russia and onto the war-torn surface. Of course, there are still plenty of supernatural threats to contend with, and the move to the surface hasn’t changed what the franchise is all about. There are a few old tricks you’ll need to know, like how to wipe your mask in Metro Exodus.
Despite making your way onto the surface, you’ll still venture through tons of irradiated areas that require the use of a gas mask. If you’ve played a Metro game before you should be familiar with how the gas mask works, as Artyom will usually put it on automatically as you enter irradiated zones.
However, while you’re trekking along on your adventure in Metro Exodus, the mask will consistently get water, mud, blood, or any other number of vile liquids splattered all over it.
You’ll need to wipe off your mask to keep your vision clear while fighting off enemies. To do this simply hit the L1 (LB) button and Artyom will wipe off the mask.
