V. Introduction
---------------
If any of the information is wrong and needs correcting please email me 
with the correction and I will give you the credit for it. This FAQ is 
not 
yet complete but I will try to complete it in ample time. Most of these 
are 
ranks my friends and I have gotten and *TRIED* to confirm the 
requirements 
the best we could, again it is open to correction. Another thing to 
remember 
is although a certain requirement is listed it doesn't mean that it is 
meant 
to be there. For example, "Play Time" was listed for the Panther 
Ranking but 
it's been confirmed now that "Play Time" has nothing at all to do with 
getting that rank.

place 
my traps and check them to find a Tsuchinoko. The box should say 
something 
like TCHNKO. After you are captured go to the waterfall and meet EVA, 
after 
the cut scene go back outside the waterfall and search the area to find 
the 
Tsuchinoko, do not kill it, just shoot it with the Tranquilizer gun.

VII. Frequently Asked Questions
-------------------------------

Q: Why can't I find a Tsuchinoko, I've been looking for [time]?

A: I am not sure why some people have a hard time finding the 
Tsuchinoko, I 
found it within one minute.

Q: Where is the Tsuchinoko after I get captured?

A: Go outside the waterfall after talking to EVA and it should be in 
that 
area, near the tree where the waterfall empties into the stream.

Q: Is it true to get the Chameleon Ranking all you need is no alerts?

A: Yes. You can die, continue, save, and kill as many people as you 
want, 
all you need to do is not get seen.
