So I'm playing the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and... I wonder, why didn't...

MASSIVE MGS2 SPOILERS

Why didn't Raiden just shoot Fortune when she was on her knee mourning Vamp? She was completely helpless at that time. I know bullets would deflect, but I mean why didn't he just put the gun TO HER head and shoot?

The little gizmo she has can deflect bullets, but judging by all the other cutscenes, they need to be a fair distance near her before they take effect. I doubt it can deflect a bullet a point black range where the gun is touching her skin.

hmm that is a good question, but since that grenade that was thrown at her turned out to be a dud, maybe he thought his gun would jam.... or maybe he just doesnt want his cover blown. idk im not that far enough to know why.

You don't question MGS. You just accept it.

I would say he had to reach fatman asap and couldn't risk pissing fortune off again and wasting more time. Also, nanomachines, son!

Becuase that wasn't his objective at the time, remember mgs2's plot point of control and manipulation, Raiden (at first) did exactly what he was told, like a puppet, until the strings began to unravel

Crying over Vamp or not, you really think Fortune would just LET Raiden come up and put a gun to her head?

He was under the impression that she had magical protection provided by lady luck, he had no reason to assume a point blank shot would work either. This is even assuming that she is so grief stricken that she would let him get that close.
