Metro: Last Light has just been released and, like all games these days, it comes with a slew of collectibles. One such collectible item is knows as an Equipment Stash.
There are a total of 16 Equipment Stashes and they come in different shapes and sizes. Sometimes they appear as useful items like bullets and such on a surface waiting for you to be picked up. Some of the stashes are actual crates, while others have a weapon or ammo on the ground.
The only way to determine whether a collectible is an actual Equipment Stash or a random pickup is by walking over to it and looking at it up close. When you do this some on screen text should show up that says ‘Press the action button to pick up the stash’. This way you can differentiate between an equipment stash and other items.
There are 9 Stashes in Sundown and 7 in Nightfall and finding and collecting all of them will unlock the ‘Equipped’ Trophy/Achievement.
