    I stood and listened to every single person in the station until they were done talking. I knocked on every door in the place, only two people opened their doors for me briefly, some others just slept, or cried, or told me to go away. But keep knocking on the same doors to exhaust every possible line of text they might have. I played with the two guitars, one is yours in your room, one is the one next to the man and his son playing with toys. I turned every light on and off that I could.

    In the end this achievement didn't pop for me until I reached Riga station. In the scene where you are drinking vodka and they are toasting you. I got up from the table and stood and listened to the people in that room and it popped.

    I suspect there must be a counter that increases for every conversation you listen to or object you interact with. I'm not exactly sure what specific things cause it to count up but if you just make sure to do everything you possibly can then this should pop.

    MasterTimosIt popped precisely as yours did. Listened to a few conversations in Riga Station after the toasting scene and got it.

    It did took me a long time to figure this one out, i didn't got it on my
    first play-trough. But with a little logical thinking ;-) i got it: i quote the
    achievement: "A true metro citizen. You know everyone and have
    seen everything." So i started from the level hunter again, and i finally
    found what to do to get this Achievement: Just start from the level
    'Hunter' and talk to everyone, knock on every door (multiple times)
    and listen to what the people have to say. even listen to conversations
    between other persons. sometimes you'll get a white 'flashback' like
    flash (i think these are the ones you'll need). Talk to the doctor, the
    people waiting at the entrance etc. search every store and look at
    everyone a couple of seconds and wait until they start talking and
    let them finish (or keep pressing X together with looking at them).
    Repeat this process in the next level (Chapter 2 - Exhibition).

    My advice is to continue playing from Hunter to Exhibition my
    experience in quiting and selecting the next level is that it results
    in not getting the Achievement. Also take extra care in listening to
    all the conversations here, Give the man the money/cartridges
    for the medicine (the man on the bench next to the teddy and
    women). in the diner/bar there are two man negotiating about a deal
    listen to them first then get close he tells you to get lost, stay
    anyway and listen to their short conversation; you'll get another
    'flashback' moment here.

    After passing the guitar playing resident enter the half closed room,
    here you will encounter your stepfather, talk to him by pressing X
    and let him finish, repeat this a couple of times until you can't start
    another conversation, then get to the train-cart en talk to the
    "captain-like-guy" let him finish and tell him that you are NOT READY.
    He will tell you something like "Get your gear, you'll have a minute".
    After this, return to your stepfather and talk to him again. This was the
    'flashback' moment where i got my achievement.

    Also keep in mind that i helped-out all the homeless/hobbo's i
    encountered on my journey (also in my first play-trough).

    I really hope this guide helps some people out, because for me
    it was a pain in the ass this achievement.

    Have fun hunting and good luck.

    VenomXNLOkay thank you for the message, i removed the warning part now. i think it just glitched then when i played it.
    Maybe they fixed it now, or i was just unlucky back then ;-)
    Anyway thanks for the heads up so i could improve my Guide a little more.
    please don't forget to thumbs up if you like the (rest) of the solution. Thank you

    Metro Dweller achievement: "A true metro citizen. You know everyone and have seen everything."

    All I did was take my time [slowly] exploring ALL around the first [and second] Metro stations. If I heard people talking to each other, I stopped and listened until they were finished with their story. [I even waited around a bit longer to see if they would talk some more.] I also clicked X on just about everyone to see if they would talk with me. [I gave bullets to everyone that asked, even the jerks that didn't deserve it.] The last thing I did was try to open every shack door. [If I was able to knock on a door, I would continue knocking several times, especially if someone replied.] Only one person actually opened their door, but he was "busy" with his lady friend.

    [As you carefully observe your surroundings and take your time listening to every conversation, you should occasionally receive a screen flash and water drop sound. As others have mentioned, there appears to be an internal counter keeping track of what you do, see and hear.]

    I was surprised when I got the achievement. I wasn't trying for it. It popped on my first play through.

    Good luck!

    AmazingPunkHey, thanks for this. One thing i did notice which may be of help to people who are struggling. The screen flashes when you have added to the counter, i noticed this all the way through from the prologue up until i met Artyoums dad just before you get on the caravan. As soon as I had spoken to his dad(or whoever he is) there was a flash and "pop" the acheivemnet unlocked! Hope this may help ;-)
