    ===================================DISCLAIMER==================================
    I have decided not to allow websites other than Gamefaqs (www.gamefaqs.com),
    IGN (faqs.ign.com), Gamerhelp (www.gamerhelp.com) & Gamespot (www.gamespot.com)
    to host my FAQs from now on.
    Please don't ask, because I will not grant permission.  It's just that too many
    sites don't keep their version of my FAQ up to date which makes for a lot of
    hassle in my mailbox.
    So if anyone sees this FAQ on any site other than those mentioned above, please
    let me know and I will take care of the situation, thanks.
    
    Just to make things crystal clear for some people, this FAQ is not to appear
    anywhere at the following URLs:

    ***IMPORTANT AUTHOR'S NOTE***
    This guide covers the North American version of the game ONLY!  I understand
    that the European and Japanese versions of the game likely have different dog
    tags and other such changes.  I can not verify these, nor do I plan to, they
    will not be added to this FAQ.  Someone who owns a copy of these versions of
    the game will likely write a FAQ that covers these tags/changes.
    
    
    I can now confirm that unlike Metal Gear Solid 2 you DO NOT get any kind of
    reward for collecting dog tags, so I guess it's purely for challenge.
    
    In this guide I give you the locations for all the dog tags that can be found
    in the game on the various difficulties, and I also point out which ones are
    particularly troublesome to get, and how to get them.
    
    First I simply list the details for each tag as it is displayed in the special
    menu of the game, then I give specifics for finding the difficult tags farther
    down.  I changed the format a little, with D.O.B first, followed by blood type,
    then the person's name and finally where they are found.

                                    (C) STRATEGIES
    ###############################################################################
    
    To get a dog tag you must hold up a guard which basically involves you 
    sneaking up behind them and drawing your gun (don't shoot it).  The enemy will
    put his hands up and be at your mercy, this is easiest to do from behind the
    enemy.  Once you have the enemy in your control either hold B (with A still
    held) or hold Z, this allows you to move around with your gun drawn.  Run to
    the front of the enemy and aim at his crotch or head.  The enemy will get
    scared and shake out his/her dog tag, and any other items if you continue this.
    
    When you hold up some enemies they will be too close to a wall or railing for
    you to get in front of them.  A good way around this is to hold B while you
    have your gun drawn, then simply run in front of them.  You will knock him
    around a bit and after a second or two you will be in front of him and ready to
    steal his tag.
    
    You can also grab an enemy in your choke hold, drag him to a nearby area, let
    him go and aim at him from there too.  Also if you manage to put a guard to
    sleep that you still need a tag from, you can pick him up and drop him many
    times to speed things up a little.  You could also drop the enemy against a
    wall and punch him in the head repeatedly from first-person view.  Or you can
    simply go about two-three areas away and return to the area with the sleeping
    enemy to have him awake once more.
    
    You could also hide in a box near an enemy and wait until he lifts the box up,
    then tap a direction to stand up.  Now you can draw your gun on the enemy to
    easily get a dog tag.

    In the following tables I will indicate the date of birth, blood type, and name
    found on each dog tag, and where to find that tag in the game.

                                    (E) TRICKY TAGS
    ###############################################################################
    
    Here I will list how you get certain tags that you get in a way that may not be
    obvious at first.  Also many guards (though their numbers may be different)
    have the same pattern on different difficulty levels.  So if you know how to
    get them on one difficulty then you'll know how to do it on another.  For this
    reason I'll ONLY describe how to get the same type of guard once, in the
    earliest difficulty that he shows up in.
    
    
    =========
    Very Easy
    =========
    
    005 - In the room beyond the level 1 door on the ground floor, where you find
          the socom suppresser.
    
    015 - Only appears after the boss battle here
    
    021 - Tranquilize the enemy here that sways their hips [without being seen],
          then pick up and drop the body to release the tag.
    
    022 - Tranquilize Meryl just before you enter the first level 5 door, then pick
          up and drop her body to release the tag.
    
    023 - Pick up and drop the body of the boss after the battle for the tag.

    For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
    here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
    the same idea.
    
    I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
    send money, so it's here for those people.
    
    
    For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
    Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
    excellent progress on a few FAQs.
    
    If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
    hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.
    
    My email address is fecalord (AT) gmail (DOT) com, and the paypal address is
    listed below.
    
    
    For those that want to contribute, you can use paypal at the following address:

    Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
