much bullets. Pick up bullets if a guard drop any. If you manage to
do it, you'll get a demo that shows how to get the best times on
weapon mode. That's why I didn't write how to get the best times on

 If you are going to e-mail me, write "Metal gear Solid VR" or "MGS
VR"
Or something like that in the subject if you know something like a
tactic or something like that. If you don't write that in the subject
it may get deleted by mistake. You can also e-mail me if there is a
typo error or grammar error that need to get fixed. And remember that
every tactic (or a typo that needs to be fixed or something else)
that I will submit on this walkthrough will give you credit.
