       Version 1.0: Well, I finally staretd on the game. Going to try to get to
                    Revolver Ocelot fight and submit it.
       =========================================================================
       Version 1.A: Added a few things, including Weapons and items, and codec
                    info. Going to try to get up to the Ninja fight today.
       =========================================================================
       Version 1.1: Working on adding the Psyco Mantis to at least the Sniper
                    Wolf fight, and maybe to the Hind D...More general info
                    should be added in the next few days, along with a few
                    corrections. Like a few people who have been emailing me,
                    send me any corrections.
       =========================================================================
       Version 1.2: Got the Torture and Hind D boss part done, along with the
                    first part of the Right Equip Screen items. Look for more
                    info in the next few days. And before I forget, I added
                    a few email corrections and tips.
       =========================================================================
       Version 1.3: Added the final touches to the main part of the guide and
                    the items section. Next is the Ghost, Dog Tags, Soldier
                    AI, Enemies Biology, and maps of each areas. Also, if you
                    wish to submit any tips and hints, they are more than
                    welcome. Also, for those that are confused, the guide mostly
                    reflect the earlier difficulty levels. I will perioticly
                    add corrections to match the rest of the guide.
       =========================================================================
       Version 1.4: Not much, just changing my email...This is like the 10th
                    time today I have said that...

      \-------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    
       The Beginning/Revolver Ocelot (031):
       ===========================================================================
                                    Cargo Dock
       ===========================================================================
       Once you get passed the beginning and the Codec convo, you will be in the
       beginning of the Cardo Dock. Head to your right and pick up the M9 (SOCOM
       like pistol that fires traquilising rounds instead of real bullets, and
       just stuns the target instead of killing them right off). Take out the two
       guards with the M9 and wait for the elevator to come down. Once it is down,
       go on it to start a cutscene and head to the next area.
    
       ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Note: It has been revealed that the M9 changes from game to game. On easy,
             it is located in one of the lockers. On Normal, it is located under
             the truck. On hard, it is in the armory part.
       ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
       ===========================================================================
                                      Heliport
       ===========================================================================
       After the long cutscene with the Hind D and the Codec convo's, you will
       have a new goal: Make it to the other side and enter though the air ducts.
       Save if you want to, and continue on.
    
       Head past the heliport landing area and get the SOCOM from inside a truck
       (A small pistol that can fire real bullets, but has a long reload time).
       Either take out the guards, or sneak past them, and crawl into the air
       duct to the next area.
    
       ===========================================================================
                                    Tank Hangar
       ===========================================================================
       The first part of the area is the air duct, head forward and right to start
       a convo with Master. Continue onward to head into a flooded part of the
       duct. Continue forward and don't stop to reach the other side. Once you are
       on the far right side (The rats will lead you), head out of the air ducts
       to reach the main hangar part.
    
       To get to the next area, head past the guards (Or kill them or knock them
       out), and head to the elevator on the left side. Make sure you are not
       in evasion mode, and press the Y button. Head down to the B1 floor to reach
       the next area.
    
       ===========================================================================
                              Holding Cells/Upper Ducts
       ===========================================================================
       Once you are in the Holding cell area, head down the hall and head to the
       right to find a ladder. Head up the ladder (Y Button), and continue onward.
       Head to the second holding cell to start a cutscene with the "DARPA" cheif.
       Once that is done, you will have to team up with a unknown female soldier
       and take down your first "boss".
    
       /-------------------------------------------------------------------------\
       |Boss: Genome Soldier Swarm                       Difficulty: Easy        |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |Info: Pretty easy fight, since you have FPM now. The Genome Soliers will |
       |      usually come in swarms of 3, and leave behind M9 and SOCOM bullets,|
       |      as well as Rations. Try to aim for the head, crotch, and chest area|
       |      for a instant kill without having to waste ammo.                   |
       \-------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    
       Once that is done, you will enter another cutscene with the Unknown Soldier
       revealing that she is under the control of Psyco Mantis, and a clue to the
       identity of the DARPA cheif. Once that is done, take the elevator down to
       level B2, the Armory.
    
       ===========================================================================
                                      Armory
       ===========================================================================
       Equip the Lv. 1 card and enter the Level 1 doors to pick up C4, SOCOM ammo,
       and Grenandes. Head to the lower left part of the area and place a C4 bomb
       on the southern wall, and press the B button to explode it. Continue on to
       the next area.
    
       ===========================================================================
                                  Southern Armory
       ===========================================================================
       Unfortunatly, the atmosphere of this area does not allow you to use the
       radar. However, the white plaster walls are the indicaters where you should
       place the C4. The first fake wall is at the very end. The second one is
       at the end of the second area. Enter it to see a cutscene with Ocelot, and
       start the first real battle.
    
       /--------------------------------------------------------------------------\
       |Boss: Revolver Ocelot                        Difficulty: Easy             |
       |--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |Info: Ocelot is a bit easier now that you have the first person mode. RO  |
       |      uses a pistol that can only fire 6 times before he has to reload, so|
       |      use that to attack. Ocelot will run if you are on the opposite side |
       |      of him, so attack from across the room. Be careful, though, if you  |
       |      trip the C4 wire, you will instantly die.                           |
       |--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |      Attacks and Actions:                                                |
       |      -Shoot: Revolver Ocelot has six shots before having to reload, and  |
       |              since this is his only attack, it is pretty easy to avoid.  |
       |              His bullets will usually richishay of the wall, so watch out|
       |              for that.                                                   |
       \--------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    
    
       Revolver Ocelot/Vulcan Raven & M1 Tank (032)
       ===========================================================================
                               Southern Armory/Armory
       ===========================================================================
       After the Ocelot and Ninja fight, Baker will start to talk, and give you
       two items: the useless MO Disk, and the Level 2 Security card, and gives
       you a hint on where to find Meryl's Codec info (Hint: The back of the
       GCN Disc Box the Twin Snakes came in). Once that is done, head back to the
       west Armory.
    
       There, you will have to evade some guards. Head back to the elevator and
       go back to level 1.
       140.15
       ===========================================================================
                                        Hangar
       ===========================================================================
       Try to knock out or kill the guards before entering. Before continueing,
       there is a few things you may want to pick up. Destroy both cameras on the
       upper parts of the stairs and enter the left level 2 door for one of the
       boxes you can use. Before continueing, however, go to the already open
       door on the upper right side and get the Thermal Goggles. Now thats out of
       the way, Call Meryl at Frequency 140.15 to get her to open the door to the
       canyon area. To get her to open the door, go up the stairs and stand on
       the metal section until she calls you back. Once she does that, the door
       will open.
    
       The next part will be tricky. There are about 6 motion detectors that are
       naked to the human eye, and will require either the cigs, or the Thermal
       Goggles (T. Goggles are highly recommended). Only cross one at a time, and
       wait for the beams to go completely up before crossing. Once you are on
       the other side, you will be in the next area, the Canyon.
    
       ===========================================================================
                                       Canyon
       ===========================================================================
       As you enter the area, a strange person by the name of Deepthroat, and
       tells him to be careful of the Claymore mines. Equip the AP Sensor and
       avoid the mines. About half way across, a part Indian by the name of
       Vulcan Raven will attack in a Tank, starting the second boss battle.
    
       /-------------------------------------------------------------------------\
       |Vulcan Raven and the M1 Tank                Difficulty: Hard             |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |Info: The fight itself doesn't really start until you reach the tanks    |
       |      area, so be careful. The tank will fire at you when you are trying |
       |      to get there, so throw a chaff grenade to throw off the Cannon part|
       |      for a short period of time                                         |
       |                                                                         |
       |      The real challenge comes from trying to damage the tank, which     |
       |      comes from damaging the gunners at the top. You have several       |
       |      options. You can either shoot the gunner from the hill area, use   |
       |      the tranq. darts to lower his fatigue meter, or throw grenades     |
       |      near him. Be warned, though, the gunners cannot be damage while    |
       |      they are inside the tank.                                          |
       |                                                                         |
       |      There are two gunners total, and you will win once you kill the    |
       |      second one.                                                        |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |      Attacks:                                                           |
       |      -Cannon Blast: Raven fires a long distance shot from the main      |
       |                     cannon of the tank. Can be stopped with a Frag      |
       |                     Grenade.                                            |
       |                                                                         |
       |      -Rapid Fire:   The gunners will use there FA-MAS Like weapons to   |
       |                     Rapidly fire at you. Can use the metal storage bin  |
       |                     on the right to avoid.                              |
       |                                                                         |
       |      -Trample:      The tank will try to run over you, usually taking   |
       |                     either 1/2 of your life bar, or instantly kill you. |

       Bobby Johnson says:
       ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
       "You mention him as being hard..but to make this guy EXTREMELY easy, after
       running at the tank and being shot at, run behind the rock and equip
       grenades..then, when you're on the right side of the rock, he'll shoot at
       you but only hit the rock..now, get in first person, lean to the right, and
       hold a grenade for a few seconds..relase it, aiming at the tank treads..if
       done right, you'll get a very short cutscene, showing the tread being blown
       up..do this to both tank treads, and every time you successfully blow up
       part of the tread, the tank will get slower and slower (I've blown up I
       believe like 2 sections of each tread)...now, all you have to do is run up
       right beside the tank, and toss grenades into the Gunner's pit over and
       over again..if you're close enough, the tank cannon AND the gunner will not
       be able to hit you..."-Bobby Johnson
       ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Thank you Bobby for that helpful email submission.
    
    
       Raven & M1 Tank/Cyborg Ninja (033)
       ===========================================================================
                            Canyon/Nuclear Weapons Storage Building
       ===========================================================================
       After the Raven fight, Snake will pick up the Level 3 PAN card and continue
       on to the Nuclear Weapons Storage Building. Here, you will get a codec call
       telling you that you cannot use "Explosive" weapons on the first floor, but
       that doesn't limit you to stealth. You can use the M9's Traq. Darts to
       knock out the guards. Once you are ready, crawl under the door.
    
       On the first floor, go to the far left and go up the stairs. From there,
       knock out the guards, and head to the elevator. Press Y and enter, and
       select the B1 floor.
    
       ===========================================================================
                                   Underground Office
       ===========================================================================
       Your only purpose on this floor is to get the Nikita Launcher. Head in on
       the Level 3 door in front of you cna continue on inside the central area.
       Head to the right and look for a rectangle shaped item box with the Nikita.
       Get some ammo for it, head back to the elevator, and head down to B2.
    
       ===========================================================================
                                    Leaked Gas Area
       ===========================================================================
       A unique area indeed...The first part of the area is airlocked, but the
       rest of the area is filled with toxic fumes that will depleat your O2
       Gauge. Before fireing each Nikita, make sure your 02 level is at it's max.
       The floor is also electrified, and the only way to pass it is to take out
       the generator on the right side.
    
       From the safe point, fire the Nikita and guide it to the right, then up,
       then though the middle of the glass door, right, and left into the
       generator. After that, you will be able to walk on the electric floor.
    
       Most of the items are ammo, but there are two items of interest, and only
       one of them you can get now. The first one is the gas mask that is in the
       Level 3 door on the right set of doors. The second is the Body Armor in
       the Level 6 door on the left side, but you cannot get that right now. Once
       You get those, continue to the left side. Once you enter the door, a
       small cutscene will come up and show the Ninja killing quite a few Genome
       soldiers. Once that is done, head in the door the Ninja went in to start
       a boss fight.

       |Boss: Cyborg Ninja                          Difficulty: Easy/Medium      |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |Info: A pure hand to hand combat battle. The cyborg Ninja's Katana will  |
       |      block any bullet attack, so make sure you only use your hand       |
       |      attacks (B Button moves). Fortunatly, the fight is pretty easy.    |
       |      The Ninja's attacks don't do that much damage, so you should get   |
       |      off by using a single ration for the entire fight. The Ninja fight |
       |      has several phases, including a part where he will use Stealth     |
       |      (Look for the transparent outline, or use the Thermal Goggles).    |
       |      The ninja's attacks include a slashing attack at the beginning, a  |
       |      airial stomp, and a rushing attack, all which only damages you for |
       |      a small ammount.                                                   |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

       |     -Katana Swipe:  Uses his blade to either attack you, or reflect your|
       |                     bullet attacks. Stops using after you hit him twice.|
       |                                                                         |
       |     -Airial Attack: Appears on the celing, and causes a ripple wave     |
       |                     effect in the carpet.                               |
       |                                                                         |
       |     -Stealth:       Uses the stealth device to make him a crystal-like  |
       |                     outline. Use Thermal Goggles.                       |
       |                                                                         |
       |     -Rush Attack:   Appears to the side of you and rushes, lightly      |
       |                     damaging you.                                       |

       Cyborg Ninja/Psyco Mantis (034)
       ===========================================================================
                                Nuke Building: Level B1
       ===========================================================================
       After the Ninja fight, head back to the main area and get back on the
       elevator and select B2. Once there, head to the central area and look for a
       guard that walks "Differently" from the other guards. Once she sees you,
       she will run to the womens bathroom on the right side of the elevator. Be
       fast enough, and you can catch her in her underwear.
    
       After learning about her past, she will give you the Level 5 PAN card. Now
       thats out of the way, you can finally head to the comanmanders room and
       start the next boss battle
    
       ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
       TIP: There are two things you should do before the Psyco mantis fight.
            First, get as much ammo as you can, and get the FA-MAS from the
            armory. The fight itself will be extremely long with out ammo, and
            unless you have a save from before the fight, you cannot go back.
            Also, you cannot backtrack earlier in the game until you finish the
            torture part.
    
            Second, if you want to, have a Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Super
            Mario Sunshine, Eternal Darkness, or Super Smash Bros. Melee save on
            the slot 1 memory card. If you have those, Mantis will mention those
            when you fight him, and will also mention Silicon Knights if you have
            a ED save on file.
    
            Also, make sure you have one of the two Sniper Rifles in your
            inventory before continueing. You will need them for a boss fight
            after that. The PSG-1-T (Fires Tranq. Darts), is in the middle section
            of the B1 floor, and the PSG-1 is in the Armory, near the location
            of the Revolver Ocelot fight.
       ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Once you do everything, head down the hallway in the middle of B1, and into
       the commanders room.
    
       ===========================================================================
                                   Commanders Room
       ===========================================================================
       Once you are in the room, the fight with Mantis will be delayed a bit, and
       Meryl (Under the control of Mantis), will try to attack her. Use a Tranq.
       dart, or knock her out. DO NOT use lethal bullets. Once that is over, the
       battle will begin.
    
       /-------------------------------------------------------------------------\
       |Boss: Psyco Mantis                         Difficulty: Hard              |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |Info: Definatly the best and the hardest boss fight in the game, Psyco   |
       |      Mantis is a force to be reckoned with from the Origional           |
       |      Playstation owners, and is the only boss fight to recieve and full |
       |      overhall. Mantis will start off with a odd attack that makes a     |
       |      Black screen with the words "HIDEO" (AKA: The series creator), come|
       |      up, to confuse you. Once that is done, he will go into a non patter|
       |      form of using Psycic Blast, 3 random pieces of furnature, and the  |
       |      statues as a form of offence.                                      |
       |                                                                         |
       |      The thing about this battle, though, is Mantis will always dodge   |
       |      your bullets and attacks UNLESS you change to the 3rd or 4th       |
       |      control port. In the origional, you had to change to the second,   |
       |      but vets will quickly learn that the 2nd is the same as the 1st.   |
       |      Also, after a few minutes, Mantis will eventually be able to read  |
       |      THAT port, meaning you will have to change to the other open one.  |
       |                                                                         |
       |      Fortunatly, Psyco's attacks are rather weak, meaning that 2 or 3   |
       |      rations would be best for a beginner to the game. If you run out of|
       |      ammo, you will have to attack him with your fist and weaken his    |
       |      fatigue gauge. Once one of the gauges is empty, you will win the   |
       |      fight.                                                             |
       |                                                                         |
       |      Oh yea, almost forgot, about 2/4 of his energy gone, Mantis will   |
       |      use Meryl as bait and try to kill her (meaning a game over). Use   |
       |      a Tranq. Dart or knock her out to prevent that.                    |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |      Attacks:                                                           |
       |      -Psycic Blast: Mantis charges a ball of energy for about 3 seconds |
       |                     releases it, and teleports. He usually yells before |
       |                     launching it, so attack him before he does.         |
       |                                                                         |
       |      -Black Screen: Mantis yells "Darkness!", and a black screen with   |
       |                     the words "HIDEO" come up. Only there to confuse    |
       |                     people, since it pauses the fight.                  |
       |                                                                         |
       |     -3 Item Shield: Mantis calls apon any 3 objects in the room and     |
       |                     causes them to rotate around him. Used for both     |
       |                     Offence and Defence.                                |
       |                                                                         |
       |      -Stone Statue: Mantis uses a statue to circle him, similar to the  |
       |                     3 item shield.                                      |
       |                                                                         |
       |      -Teleport/Fly: Mantis has the automatic ability to fly in the air, |
       |                     as well as the ability to teleport after a attack.  |
       |                                                                         |
       |      -Mantis View:  Randomly shows his point of view, let go of the     |
       |                     buttons to exit. Used to confuse the player.        |
       |                                                                         |
       |     -Meryl Attack:  Mantis uses Meryl as a pawn and tries to attack     |
       |                     snake. Knock her out.                               |
       |                                                                         |
       |    -Meryl Suicide:  Mantis will try to get Meryl to commit suicide.     |
       |                     Knock her out.                                      |

       Psyco Mantis/Sniper Wolf (035)
       ===========================================================================
                                    Wolf Caves
       ===========================================================================
       A small section filled with a new type of enemy: Wolves. The wolves will
       attack you if you do not have Wolfs Hankerchief (After the torture), or
       have the Small Wolf Pup pee on the box. To quickly get past wolf infested
       areas without wasting ammo, use flash grenades. The pathway is (from the
       enterance), right a little, up, crawl, right, crawl, right, and crawl
       again to get to the area Meryl is at. Once you are ready, go to the next
       area.
    
       ===========================================================================
                           Path to the Communications Tower
       ===========================================================================
       In the next area, there are a few claymore mines. Along with Meryl showing
       you the pathway, use the Thermal Goggles as a guide. Once you are on the
       other side, a cutscene with Sniper Wolf shooting Meryl will play, and then
       start your next boss battle.
    
       ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Note: If you didn't take my advice earlier and got one of the PSG-1's, you
             will need to backtrack as soon as the boss battle begins. Either one
             will work, and it doesn't matter which one you pick up. The PSG-1-T
             is in the middle part of the B1 Nuke Building (Before the P. Mantis
             fight), and the PSG-1 is all the way in the Armory, so I personally
             recommend picking up the PSG-1-T for a quicker fight.

       |Boss: Sniper Wolf, Fight 1                     Difficulty: Easy/Medium   |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |Info: After the last fight, the shootout battle is actually somewhat of a|
       |      break. Sniper Wolf only has one attack, and thats to shoot you with|
       |      her sniper rifle. Fortunatly, she will use the laser targeter on   |
       |      her rifle for assurance, so you can dodge her attacks by moving the|
       |      control stick around.                                              |
       |                                                                         |
       |      The best place to attack is about half way on the wall and half way|
       |      on exposed on the left or right enterance points to the alley. Wolf|
       |      will move to around after you shoot her, so be prepared. Once her  |
       |      fatigue or health bar is gone, you will win the fight.             |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |      Attacks:                                                           |
       |      -Aim: Sniper wolf will always use the laser pointer on her rifle to|
       |            aim before she attacks. To throw her off, move the Control   |
       |            stick around.                                                |
       |                                                                         |
       |     -Fire: After around 5 seconds of aiming without inferance, she will |
       |            well...shoot you..and it stings...                           |
       \-------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    
       After the fight, walk up the alley and to the door on the right to start
       a cutscene, and you getting captured.
    
       Torture/Hind D: (036)
       ===========================================================================
                                 The Torture Process
       ===========================================================================
       Now that you are captured, you will be in a cutscene with Ocelot, Sniper
       Wolf, and Liquid talking about the U.S. Government and other issues. After
       that is done, you will have to do a somewhat exausting mini-game where
       you have to endure a high voltage charge, or submit to it.
    
       So, what exactly does submitting and endureing have to do with the game?
       Although it won't affect the game currently, it will near the very end, and
       it also determines what special item and ending you will recieve. If you
       submit, you will get the Otacon ending where Meryl dies, and you will
       recieve the Stealth Camo, which is much more useful then the later special
       item. Endure, and you will recieve the true ending with Meryl, and get the
       Infinity Ammo Bandana. Personally, you should get the stealth the first
       time, re-do the game, and get the Bandanna. In terms of usefullness, the
       Stealth is extremely good for getting around guards, but useless against
       bosses, while the Bandana is good for both enemies and bosses.
    
       Anyways, getting back to the game, to submit, press the start button
       as soon as it starts to stop it, and you won't have to do it again. To
       endure, repetedly press the A button to restore health. If you run low
       on health, you will die, but not be able to continue, meaning you will
       heave to start from your last save. The torture will last as long as the
       blue bar under the life bar has some left in it. You will have to endure
       the torture two times to be able to get the good ending, and submit once
       to get the bad.
    
       After the first torture session, they will place you in a cell, and the
       colonel will contact you and start a long codec convo about what snake
       heard and about the DARPA chief. Once that is over, call Mei Ling to save,
       and then contact Otacon to start the escape process. If you submitted, he
       will eventually come after a few minutes, but if you endured, he will
       come after the second torture session.
    
       Once he comes, he will give you the Level 6 PAN card, Wolf's Handkerchief
       (Good for avoiding wolves in the wolf cave), and Ketchup (Used to escape).
       To get Johnny to open the cell, use the Ketchup and lay down on top of it
       (to make it look like you are bleeding). Eventually, Johnny the guard will
       come around and unlock the door, giving your window to escape. Knock him
       out, and contune on down the hall.
    
       Once out, go pick up the ration near the torture room door, and enter it.
       Go to the right of the torture table and get back your stuff. Beware,
       though, go look though your left inventory for a bomb, and if there is one,
       press A to throw it. Otherwise, it will be instant death.
    
       Now that's out of the way, there is a few things before you can do before
       you continue, and it would be wise if you do. Since you are on the Holding
       cell area of the Hangar, you can do a few things before that were too long
       and hard to do. Head back down to level B2 (Armory) and get the PSG-1 and
       FA-MAS if you haven't already. Head back though the canyon area, to the
       nuke building, and to the gas filled B2 area to get the Body Armor to the
       left path. Once that is done, head back though the wolf cave (Equip the
       Handkerchief to avoid the wolves), and to the Sniper Wolf area.
    
       ===========================================================================
                            Communications Tower: Enterance
       ===========================================================================
       After seeing the flashback cutscene with Meryl, head back to the area where
       you were captured to enter the communications tower.
    
       ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Note: Since there will be many guards up ahead, it is highly recommended
             that you get the FA-MAS before continueing, since the guards are
             getting a little tougher and fast, and the simple fact that you will
             be going up staircases for the next hour or so.
       ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
       ===========================================================================
                                Communications Tower A
       ===========================================================================
       Like I said earlier, you will be spending a good hour climbing stairs.
       To get to your next destination, you will need to climb 27 flights of
       stairs to get to the top area, and on top of that, you will have guards
       chasing you. Equip the FA-MAS and Body Armor and head up the stairs. On the
       9th floor, you will get a call about the frozen level 6 door, telling you
       to go to the top. Once you are on the 27th floor, look for a ladder on the
       left side and climb up it. Head though the door to reach the roof area.
    
       ===========================================================================
                              Communications Tower A: Roof
       ===========================================================================
       Once you are at the top, go forward to start a cutscene with the Hind D
       exploding most of the roof. Once that is done, you will have to climb to
       the bottom using one of two methods. If you got the rope from earlier, you
       can use that to repel down to the bottom area. To control it, use the A
       button to push of, and the directional pad/control stick to show where you
       want to move. The second is to use the hanging method and drop down. To
       get there safely using the hanging method, drop and catch (X to drop, and
       Y to grab) twice on the left, head to the very right, drop down there
       twice, and head back to the very left and drop down twice again to safety.
    
       Once you are at the bottom, you will find that you are on level 9, meaning
       you are at the frozen level 6 door. Put some C4 on the frozen door and
       detonate it to open it up for a quick route. Anyways, use the Thermal
       goggles and the FA-MAS or the PSG-1 to take down the guards, and continue
       on to Tower B. Once you are in the enterance, you will pick up the Stinger
       Launcher and have the ability to launch heat seeking missles. Once that is
       done, head down to the lower parts of Tower B.
    
       ===========================================================================
                                Communications Tower B
       ===========================================================================
       Before you can do anything, head to the elevator and try to press Y to
       find out it is broken. Then, head back to the left and down a few flights
       before finding that the stairs to the underground section is destroyed.
       The, head back to the elevator to start a cutscene with Otacon. Now thats
       out of the way, head to the right to find the crates that were previously
       blocking your path are stacked up. Head up the stairs, but be careful,
       there are gun turrets on the walls, and they will increase in number the
       farther you go up. Once you are at the top, go up the ladder on the
       northern wall to head to the Tower B Roof, starting the next boss battle,
       Liquid and the Hind D.
    
       /-------------------------------------------------------------------------\
       |Boss: Hind D                              Difficulty: Medium/Hard        |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |Info: Although some see it as hard, I see it more as long and            |
       |      frustraiting. The fights actual difficulty depends on where you    |
       |      fight, and fortunatly, you are already there when you begin the    |
       |      fight. Head to the section in between the storage tanks and the    |
       |      enterance area to the boss to avoid most of Liquid's attacks.      |
       |                                                                         |
       |      Like the M1 Tank fight, Liquid has a gun and a rocket launcher, so |
       |      it will be somewhat hard to avoid his attacks while you are out in |
       |      the open. Equip your rocket launcher and follow the 3 squares      |
       |      around until you can see him, and fire. Simple as that.            |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |      Attacks:                                                           |
       |      -Rapid Fire: Liquid fires a round of bullets at you. Hide behind   |
       |                   the storage tanks for more defence.                   |
       |                                                                         |
       |      -Missles:    After awhile, liquid will randomly fire several       |
       |                   misslies at you. Use your own stinger missles to      |
       |                   counter, or dodge them.                               |
       \-------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    
       Hind D/Sniper Wolf #2 (037)
       ===========================================================================
                        Communications Tower B/Underground Area
       ===========================================================================
       Now that that's out of the way, head back to the elevator area in Tower B.
       Fortunatly, if you destroyed any gun turrets during your first accending,
       they will still be off line. Press the Y button to enter the elevator.
       Once in the elevator, however, Otacon will warn you that 3 Stealth Camo's
       were stolen and the guards with them are in there with you. Equip the FA-
       MAS to make very quick work of them, and head to the next area.
    
       Once you are out, head down the right path and down the hall. Since there
       are several Gun Turrets, you may want to throw a frag grenade down before
       heading down the hall. Once you are at the end, head though the door and
       into the next battle: The Final Battle with Sniper Wolf.
    
       /-------------------------------------------------------------------------\
       |Boss: Sniper Wolf #2                          Difficulty: Easy           |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |Info: She has more health now, but she is virtualy the same. Sniper Wolf |
       |      now uses the trees for cover and moves from one tree to the other  |
       |      (Right to left), but is virtually the same battle. Do to the       |
       |      distance in between her and you, you will have to use either of the|
       |      PSG-1's.                                                           |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |      Attacks:                                                           |
       |      -Aim: Before she shoots, she will always aim her laser pointer at  |
       |            you for accuracy. Move arround to avoid it.                  |
       |                                                                         |
       |      -Run: After being hit, she will move from tree to tree and hide.   |
       |            Not much you can do.                                         |
       |                                                                         |
       |    -Shoot: After aiming, she will...well, shoot you. And it hurts...    |
       \-------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    
       After that, you will see the Wolf death seen. Boo Hoo Hoo, you killed A
       WOMAN. Anyways, check the various warehouses for supplies and shake her
       dead body from her feet for her dog tag. Once that is done, head to the
       building in the Northwestern part to continue.
    
       Wolf/Vulcan Raven (038)
       ===========================================================================
                                   Blast Furnace
       ===========================================================================
       One of the better parts of the game, and one of the more deadlier runs.
       The place is filled with melted steel and other substances to create a
       lava-like surface, so be careful. Touching it WILL cause instant death, and
       cause you to be melted into oblivian.
    
       The quickest way to get to the next area is, from the beginning, go to the
       right to the crane area. Place yourself against the wall and then crouch
       to avoid the crane. Once you are on the other side, head down the pathway
       on the right side to the Cargo Elevator.
    
       ===========================================================================
                                   Cargo Elevator
       ===========================================================================
       As you can see, there are no guards at all, only gun turrets. After
       collecting the various gun rounds, head on the elevator and press the Y
       button near the control panel to start it. After that, a cutscene with some
       Ninja-Like guards will come up, and force you to fight. Once again, use
       your FA-MAS to quickly take care of them. Once it stops, head down the
       right hall to the next one and do the same thing. Once it stops, get out
       and enter the next area, the Cold Storage, to start your next fight against
       our favorite Eskimo!
    
       /-------------------------------------------------------------------------\
       |Boss: Vulcan Raven                           Difficulty: Medium          |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |Info: Some say he is hard, some say he is a piece of cake, and I say he  |
       |      greatly varies apon difficulty levels. Ravens only (but powerful)  |
       |      attack is to use his heavy Sub-Machine gun to blast you up REAL    |
       |      good. Fortunatly, do to his weight and the weight of the weight of |
       |      the gun, he is extremely slow, and takes about 20 seconds just to  |
       |      head from one side of the room to the other.                       |
       |                                                                         |
       |      There are several things you can do. The first is the offensive.   |
       |      Make sure Raven is at the complete opposite side of the room as    |
       |      you are and take out the FA-MAS and blast him in the head area.    |
       |      He will start attacking, but if you have 2 or so rations, you      |
       |      should be fine. The second is to plant C4 and Claymores on the     |
       |      Floors and lure him near you. Claymores are easier to use, since   |
       |      C4 needs to be detonated. The third is to use any Nikita Missles   |
       |      you have left over and attack him while his back is turned. He will|
       |      destroy them if he see's them, so be careful (and save your Stiner |
       |      milles for later). Once his health or Fatigue gauge is gone, Mr.   |
       |      Eskimo will surrender!                                             |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |      Attacks:                                                           |
       |      -Sub Machine Gun: Uses a powerful Sub Machine gun to blast the shit|
       |                        out of you. Keep a close diffence from him, since|
       |                        it is nearly impossible to get away from him if  |
       |                        you get too close.                               |
       \-------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    
       Once raven is eaten by the ravens, collect his dog tag from the area he was
       eaten and continue. Avoid the guards and head though the door to the last
       area, the underground base.
    
       Raven/Metal Gear Rex (039)
       ===========================================================================
                                  Underground Base
       ===========================================================================
       The holding area of Metal Gear Rex, this is the marker of your final hour
       of the game. In all, there are 3 levels: Bottom, 2nd, and control area.
       Although it may seem large, most of the time spent is codec convo's and
       cutscenes. To continue, head to the right and head up the stairs. From
       there, continue up and head on the left path. Continue down and head up
       the stairs after you reach up the end to see a cutscene with Revolver
       Ocelot and Liquid talking about their plans and Snake losing the PAL
       Key card.
    
       Your next goal is to retreve the PAL Card from the bottom, and it can
       be in one of two locations. Head back down to the very bottom and wade
       in the toxic pool until you find it. Along with the PAL card, you can
       find such items, such as the SOCOM Supressor for some odd reason (IF
       you didn't get it the first time), a Time Bomb, and various ammo and
       rations. If you cannot find it, head up the left ladder and look for
       a hole on the bottom north wall. Wait until the mouse comes out and
       shoot him, revealing the key.
    
       Once that is done, head back to the control room (Take out the camera's
       first, or you will face instant death VIA poison gas). Go to the laptop
       on the very left and press Y with the card equipped to enter the first
       key. Next is Cold.
    
       You have two options. You can either head to the Raven room and wait until
       it freezes, or do the new method. While still on the Control level, head
       to the very right side and hang over the railing until you see the platform
       with the two pipes. Release, and quickly press Y while dropping to grab
       onto the pipe platform (Or die..). There are two pipes: Steam and Liquid
       Nitrogen. Use your gun to release the nitrogen from the second pipe
       (and make sure you have the card equipped), to freeze the card. Head back
       to the control room and enter it in the second computer from the left
       to enter the second card. Last one is steam. Same case, either head to
       the steam room before the Raven room, or head back to the pipe and release
       the steam with the card equipped to warm it up. Head back and put the card
       in the last slot to...ACTIVATE METAL GEAR REX!!!!
    
       After that, the door will shut, and gas will leak into the room. Equip the
       Gas Mask and call Otacon to get him to open it. While he is attempting to
       open it, walk around the door area, and he should call you back after that,
       opening the door. Once that is over, walk out the door to start a cutscene
       with Liquid, and the long Metal Gear REX fight.
    
       /-------------------------------------------------------------------------\
       |Boss: Metal Gear REX                        Difficulty: Medium/Hard      |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |Info: REX is actually somewhat easy, just long. In all, there isn't much |
       |      strategy behind this battle. The arena is completely square with   |
       |      no where to run. In all, there are 2 different phases, the Radome  |
       |      part (Where you need to hit the round thing on the right part), and|
       |      the second is to hit the middle part.                              |
       |                                                                         |
       |      After the first part, you will see a cutscene with Gray Fox        |
       |      Sacreficing himself to destroy the Radome. During that, you will   |
       |      have a in-game cutscene where you are contiplating on if you should|
       |      shoot REX with Gray Fox in the way (Naturaly, you won't, however). |
       |                                                                         |
       |      Although the second part is a bit easier, it's also a bit akward.  |
       |      Your view will change to sideways, and you will have to shoot the  |
       |      middle (Cockpit) section of Metal Gear REX to damage it. You can   |
       |      also damage the laser and gun turrets by locking onto them, but    |
       |      they are a waste of time.                                          |
       |                                                                         |
       |      In all, REX has 4 attacks: Missles, Gun Turrets, a Laser, and to   |
       |      stomp you with his feat. The laser goes in a sideway patter, so its|
       |      pretty easy to dodge. The machine gun deals damage similar to the  |
       |      guns from wall turrets and guards. The missles, however are the    |
       |      biggest problem. Not only are they powerful and the attack he uses |
       |      the most, but they cause you to exit Stinger mode. Finally, he will|
       |      try to use REX's feet to stomp you into the ground. Although rare, |
       |      it is extemely powerful.                                           |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |      Attack:                                                            |
       |      -Missles: REX fires several lock on missles to damage you and to   |
       |                knock you out of first person view. Unequip the stinger  |
       |                and run around to avoid them.                            |
       |                                                                         |
       |      -Laser:   REX fires a white laser beam that goes from right to left|
       |                (and vice versa). Simply step back to avoid it.          |
       |                                                                         |
       |      -Guns:    REX fies several rounds from a gun turret mounted on it  |
       |                that is similar to the attacks of guards. Walk from side |
       |                to side to avoid it.                                     |
       |                                                                         |
       |      -Stomp:   REX tries to use it's legs to stomp on you. Powerful, but|
       |                slow and inaccurate. When under his legs, imediantly     |
       |                run from under it to avoid his attack.                   |
       \-------------------------------------------------------------------------/
    
       Once that is done, you will then see a long cutscene with liquid, and
       engage in the final battles of the game.
    
    
       The Finale (03a)
       ===========================================================================
                                 The Final Battles
       ===========================================================================
    
       /-------------------------------------------------------------------------\
       |Boss: Liquid Snake                            Difficulty: Easy           |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       |Info: After the fight that is known as REX, liquid is a walk in the park |
       |      Although there is a time limit, you can easily beat him. Since you |
       |      (and him) are only using your fist, the only attacks he has it to  |
       |      charge at you and to punch. One small thing, if you fall, you die, |
       |      but if he falls, he gets back up. One final note is you have about |
       |      3 minutes to defeat him.                                           |
       |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

       Now that's done, you will finally see the major changes with the torture.
       If you endured, Meryl will be alive and Otacon will "Sacrefice" himself
       to open the escape route. If you submitted, you will find Meryl, dead, and
       Otacon will talk about moving on, and shit like that. Either way, the one
       that you talk to during the scene is your travel partner. After that is
       done, your final task will be to esacpe. And the only way is by Jeep.
    
       ===========================================================================
                                   Escape Route
       ===========================================================================
       Before continueing, get the ration on the other side of the stairs (Since
       you do not have any of your old items). In the next area, your partner will
       take a about 30 seconds to get into the jeep, and guards are pouring in.
       Get the ration on the upper left corner, and try to avoid the guards fire.
       Once you are in the jeep, go into first person mode and blast the barrel
       near the gate to move on to the next area.
    
       ===========================================================================
                                   Escape Tunnel
       ===========================================================================
       In all, there are 2 segments, the checkpoints and liquid. The first part
       is getting past the checkpoints. To do so, blast the two barrels at the
       checkpoints to continue. Next, liquid will appear and try to ram and shoot
       you. Keep fireing on him, and don't threat him running into you a few
       times. Once you get into the cutscene, your job is done, and the cutscenes
       will take over for you.
    
    
       ===========================================================================
                                      Aftermath
       ===========================================================================
       I don't want to spoil what happens (Although I will say that the Otacon
       ending is MUCH better then Meryls). Once you do that, you have completed
       most of the game! You can go back on that save file and get the other
       ending and special item. And once you do that, you can play the game again
       a third time with a few changes, including:
    
       -Snake in a Black Tuxedo
       -Meryl in Snakes Sneaking suit
       -The Ninja is now mostly dark red and some blue, also known as the Crimson
        Ninja
    
       Although you can collect the dog tags, they don't unlock anything special.
       Congradulations! You beat a remake of a nearly 6 year old game!

       Guns and Missle Launchers:
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------
       M9
    
       Type: Tranquilizer
    
       Special Features: Sound Supressor already equipped
    
       Found:
       -Next to you at the beginning.
    
    
       Info: A modified Beretta M92F to fit Tranquilizer Darts, it is one of
             the newer weapons to the seires. Unlike the SOCOM or USP, the M9
             fires non-lethal darts that puts it's target to sleep. Also, unlike
             bullets, it already has a supressor, so it dosen't set off the alarm
             if it is fires, and passing by guards arn't as suspicious.
    
             In boss fights, the M9 acts as the alternate to lethal ammo, the
             fatigue gauge weapon. In any boss fight that has a fatigue gauge
             along with a health bar, you can use non-lethal ammo to win the
             boss fight and not add to your kill list.
    
             One final note, each Tran. dart takes about a one second delay
             between each fire to reload, so it is wise to use them from a
             farther distance when taking out a group of Terrorist.
    
             **Update: I got a email from a person named Wogle telling me of the
                       true modification of the M9 (Guess I forgot...)
    
             "Just correcting a small mistake in your explanation of the M9. It
             is modified Beretta M92F, not a USP-Woggle
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------
       SOCOM
    
       Type: Bullet
    
       Special Features: Supressors
    
       Found:
       -In the back of the truck on the Heliport
    
       Info: The SOCOM is the gun Snake will be using alot in the beginning.
    
             Unlike the M9, the SOCOM/USP does not have a reload time between
             each shot, so you can fire as many as you like before having to
             reload.
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------
       FA-MAS
    
       Type: Quick Burst Bullets
    
       Special Features: Quick unload
    
       Found:
    
    
       Info: Similar to the AK-47 from MGS2, the FA-MAS is a quickfire rifle that
             is handy for taking out a large group of guards. Although it is
             uneeded to complete the game, it is a handy weapon for dealing out
             damage quick. It unloads ammo quick, so make sure you are on target
             and not off target, since it does not have a supressor, it will
             surely set off the alarms.
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------
       PSG-1
    
       Type: Sniper Rifle, uses lethal bullets
    
       Special Features:  Uses first person mode. More accurate, but causes hand
                          tremors. Use Cigs or Pentazemin to cure for awhile.
    
       Found:
    
    
       Info: A high power Sniper Rifle that uses the first person mode, and
             can only be used in that mode (in other words, you cannot move
             around while using it). The PSG-1 uses real lethal bullets, so it
             will kill if hit in one of the main lethal points on a non-boss
             underling. Due to the ammount of intensity while using the weapon,
             the game adds in a flaw: your hands will tremble while using the
             weapon, so you will need a item, such as Pentazemin to calm your
             nerves.
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------
       PSG-1-T
    
       Type: Sniper Rifle, uses tranquilizer darts
    
       Special Features: Causes enemies to sleep (Or lower the Fatigue meter)
                         when hit.
    
       Found:
    
    
       Info: A high power Sniper Rifle that uses the first person mode, and
             can only be used in that mode (in other words, you cannot move
             around while using it). The PSG-1-T uses Tranq. Darts, so the target
             will not be kill if hit, and will only cause the enemy to sleep or
             lower the fatigue meter in boss fights (The purple bar under health)
    
             Due to the ammount of intensity while using the weapon, the game adds
             in a flaw: your hands will tremble while using the weapon, so you
             will need a item, such as Pentazemin. to calm your nerves.
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Nikita
    
       Type: Remote Controlled Missle
    
       Special Features: Can be controlled for a short ammount of time before it
                         self destructs, or hits a corner. Uses First Person
                         view to use.
    
       Found:
    
    
       Info: A remote controlled missle launcher, the Nikita is a highly powerful
             weapon that is needed to continue in the game. The Nikita missles
             will fire in First Person view and can be controlled for around
             20 seconds before self destructing (Look in the upper left corner
             for the time gauge), or hits a corner. Since it can only be used
             in FPV, you will need to be stationary while using it.
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Stinger Missle Launcher
    
       Type: Heat Seeking missle launcher
    
       Special Features: Can lock onto enemies and certain targets. Only one can
                         be used at a time.
    
       Found:
    
    
       Info: Similar to the Nikita, but instead using heat seeking missles to
             attack. Stinger missles use a lock on system uses only in First
             Person Mode to lock onto the targets and hit them. Stinger missles
             can track the target if far away, but will blow up eventually
             from time, or hitting a object that is in the way. You can only
             have one Stinger missile in the air at one time.
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
       Mines and Explosives:
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Grenade
    
       Type: Timed Explosive
    
       Special Features: Explodes after 5 seconds after the pin has been pulled
    
       Found: Misc. Locations
    
    
       Info: A old style hand grenade that uses a pin and throw system to
             damage the enemies. Hand Grenades will only explode after the pin
             is pulled, and that is usually indicated when Snake pulls back his
             arm. Grenades will explode after 5 seconds, so make sure you have
             thrown it and backed off before then.
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Chaff Grenade
    
       Type: Electrical Jamming
    
       Special Features: Throws off electrical devices and cameras, but jams the
                         radar.
    
       Found: Misc. Locations
    
    
       Info: A type of interferance grenade that causes a wave of electrical
             malfunction for about 15 seconds. This is useful for knocking
             cameras offline and weapons, such as the Tank. Unfortunatly,
             a side effect of the Chaff Grenade is that it will jam the radar
             for that ammount of time, so know where you are before using it.
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Stun Grenade
    
       Type: Causes Stun condition in all nearby soldiers
    
       Special Features: Causes Stun condition in all nearby soldiers

       Special Features: Can be detonated from far away.
    
       Found: Misc. Locations
    
    
       Info: A type of explosive that will only explode when detonated with the
             B button. C4 is useful for killing soldiers from far away and
             blowing holes in walls. Like grenades, however, it can also cause
             you damage, so detonate them from a safe distance.
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Claymore Mines
    
       Type: Non controlled explosives
    
       Special Features: Can kill soldiers that walk on them
    
       Found: Misc. Places

             ground, you will have no control over them, and will only go off
             when you or a soldier walks across them. The sensor will also
             detonate the mine if a soldier walks into it's line of sight.
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------

       Special Features: Fully Recovers health
    
       Found: Misc. Locations
    
    
       Info: One of the most important items of the game, Rations will fully
             recover all health and bleeding, but will not cure colds. Rations
             are military style MRE's that usually have some sort of meat, side
             dish, desert, and drink that can be used on the battlefield (Misc
             info there, folks. Nothing to do with the game at all). Anyways,
             you can only carry 5 rations, so make good use of them.

             and defeating certain bosses. Dogs Tags were rumored to unlock
             something, people thought after Dennis Dylack said there would be
             other unlockables, but the Canadian appearantly lied, and people
             were pissed off. So to people looking to collect them in hopes that
             something comes available: Don't. They do absolutely nothing of
             interest.
