Metro Exodus lightning ball is officially known as an Anomaly or Dark Star. It can be found in other games in the series, like Metro 3033 and Metro: Last Light. But what is it and what do they mean?
Metro Exodus Lightning Balls: What is an Anomaly?
Anomalies are dangerous phenomenons that appear in Metro 3033, Metro: Last Light, and occasionally in Metro Exodus. It is a floating orb that radiates electricity and is feared by both humans and mutants.
The anomalies cannot be killed by players in-game. They can be found in the Volga region in Metro Exodus, specifically in areas where there is more metal present. Anomalies are more active during the night, too.
There is a new type of anomaly found in the Novosibirsk level in the Institute. The anomaly will radiate rays of light and have a gravitational influence on objects in the area.
