       Thanks to:
       
       The few people who helped me out in completing this game but now I am 
    a true master of this game.
       Konami for making a terrific game. I hope they make a sequel.
    
       Notice:
       NO PERMISSION is granted to reprint this summary for a for-profit 
    magazine etc. YOU CAN NOT take any part of my walkthrough without my 
    permission. If your job is to write articles in magazines or anything 
    you can't just sit down and COPY my work. I am writing this importance 
    notice short, but that doesn't mean that you take it easily UNDERSTAND?
    Whew! Ok, so let's go down to business.
       
     Before you play the game I suggest you watch the introduction and the 
    briefing. Also don't forget to read the "Specials" and do the Virtual 
    Reality Training, if you complete all the modes you can view the demos 
    of getting the 1st rank. Another thing is that you should contact 
    everybody by codec (you'll get to know) to get helpful hints in the 
    game.
    
      Walkthrough:
      First Solid will come out of the water and have a call from the 
    Colonel. After you finish talking, you'll get to control Solid Snake. 
    There are three rations in this area. Rations give health to Solid 
    Snake. One is in the water behind the barrel; the second one can be seen 
    if you `look' through Solid's eyes and the last one is near a crane type 
    thing. Beware of the two soldiers that are guarding this place; though 
    Solid has no gun he can break the soldiers necks. You can do this by 
    sneaking on the soldier and press the square button repeatedly. By 
    pressing just the square while fighting with him you can throw him out 
    of your way.
     Now what you have to do is wait for the lift to come down. You can 
    either hide at a good place or you can kill the guards. Anyway, when the 
    lift comes down, a soldier will come out of it too. Let me tell you that 
    if he (or any soldier in the game) you and you try to go up the lift, 
    this cannot be done because he'll start firing at you. You will be 
    having no choice but to kill him or run away if you are a scaredy-cat. 
    When you go into the lift, the lift will start going up automatically. 
    There will be a cut-scene and you will see Solid's face (not bad). He'll 
    get a Codec call from the Colonel; he will introduce you to two women. 
    One is Naomi and the other is a cute girl called Mei Ling (she isn't 
    exactly a woman). 
     NOTE: FROM NOW I WON'T BE AS DETAIL AS I AM. SORRY DUDES.
    (Oh well, life goes on) Ha ha ha.
    In this area you will find stun-grenades and chaff-grenades, a ration 
    and SOCOM your first gun. Watch out for the spotlights (hyuk) because 
    they are there to track any intruders. Get it? The SOCOM is inside the 
    truck, to enter it just well. go inside it and Solid will automatically 
    jump into it. There you will find the gun behind the crate or whatever. 
    There are two ways to go to the next area. Remember that you person you 
    saw who was sleeping standing still, when you entered this place. Well, 
    you oughta. Behind this guy you'll see uhhhh umm a small space where you 
    can crawl inside. But I say that you sneak up the stairs and move a bit 
    forward. Here you'll see the same kind of space, now crawl inside this 
    by pressing X and Up.The camera will go into first-person mode. When you 
    will be making your way through this area, you'll come to a ladder, when 
    you do press the Circle button. Now you'll be in a new area. Your 
    objective is to find the elevator and go into it. Before you do, find 
    the thermal goggles (yourself). The elevator's down the stairs. Go to 
    the prison area where you'll see a man you are looking for. Climb the 
    ladder and go to a dead end you'll see a light below. Press Triangle and 
    Down. There will be some FMV. Afterwards roam around the cell your in 
    for a bit. You'll something like a door being unlocked. Then get out of 
    the cell. More FMV. Equip your gun and start shooting like mad at the 
    soldiers. After you kill all of them there'll be more FMV. Now you know 
    that the woman who was fighting with you was the colonel's daughter, 
    Meryl. Now go to the ground floor again. Get the SOCOM suppressor and 
    the mine detector from the level 1-security doors. Don't forget the 
    bullets. Now go to the second floor. Get the bullets and the grenades 
    and the C4's. You'll see lot's of walls that if you knock on them, 
    there'll be hollow sound. Blast the walls with your C4's. Go to the wall 
    at the south that you have just exploded enter this new area. You'll see 
    another wall, blast it too. Enter. Blast two more walls. Go to the wall, 
    which faces the north side. FMV.
      Boss 1: Revolver Ocelot.
    Easy. Keep running after him and shoot him. Don't hide.    
    FMV. Get out of all these areas and go back into the ammo room (where 
    you blasted the walls). Enter the Level-2 security room(s) and get the 
    FAMAS gun and bullets. Go to ground floor. Contact Meryl via the CODEC.
        NOTE: You can save by contacting Mei Ling, you can also talk to 
    colonel and Naomi and don't forget Master Miller who'll give you tips 
    and Nastasha who'll tell all about Gun's and stuff. 
    Wait for a minute. You'll get a call from Meryl. Then the big gate will 
    open. Enter through the gate and equip your thermal goggles. Your 
    thermal goggles help you locate traps. Watch out for the infra red laser 
    beams, if you them your finished. Get outta here. You'll come out again 
    in the open brrrr. You'll get a call from a secret person. Snake's fan 
    huh. Move a bit forward and there'll be an FMV sequence.
      Boss 2: Vulcan Raven.
    Easy. To get near the tank use your chaff grenades. Then when you get 
    near the tank, equip your grenades and watch out for the soldier firing 
    at you. What you gotta do is to throw the grenades at the guard. It 
    should be near him. Repeat it a few times and you'll win.
    Watch out for claymore mines. You can get them if you crawl under them. 
    Then go to the gate in front and enter the new area.
     Get the ration. Go to the dead end and crawl under it. You'll get a 
    call and you will be told that you can't use your weapons here and for a 
    good reason.
     BEWARE: If you get caught the soldiers will release poison gas and 
    you'll die.
    Find the elevator get into it and go to the second floor (I think). Get 
    the Nikita and the Nikita missiles. Go to the other floor. Here you'll 
    see another person. A scientist. Enter the next room, then again. A cut-
    scene. A call. Now your objective is to blast the power generator with 
    your Nikita missiles. What are you waiting for do it? Watch out for the 
    camera's who'll shoot at the missiles and make them explode. When you 
    blast the generator you can proceed. Go right and keep entering the 
    rooms. A FMV, a cool one. Proceed and there'll be a cut-scene. Then 
    enter the room.
     Boss 3: Ninja.
    However you only have to punch him to defeat him. If you want to cheat, 
    you can use chaff grenades and poor old Ninja won't be able to do 
    anything and you can do whatever you want to him.
    FMV. You'll meet Dr. Hal Emmerich, the scientist you saw before. After 
    you get to control Snake again get all the items on this floor. Then go 
    to the other floor (not the ground floor). Your objective is to find 
    Meryl. Go into the room where the soldiers are keeping guard. One of the 
    soldiers is Meryl. You can tell whether the soldier is Meryl or not by 
    looking how the way the soldier walks (excellent idea). You must let 
    Meryl see you, she'll get surprised and will run to the women's 
    bathroom. Follow her. If you follow her quickly, Meryl won't have time 
    to dress and you'll see her uhhhhh in her undies (don't do that man). 
    FMV (gosh there are a lot of them). Go to the room in the north. Keep 
    entering the rooms and there'll be a cut-scene. Something's wrong with 
    Meryl. Enter the room and go a bit forward. Meryl's gone nuts; she's 
    pointing the gun at Snake. Use your stun-grenades to knock her out. Well 
    well well, what do we have here?
     Boss 4: Psycho Mantis.
    Very hard and very easy. It'll be very hard to beat him without using 
    the cheat. Psycho Mantis can read your mind so it's hard to hit him with 
    or without gun. The cheat is that you can put your controller into port 
    two. This way Mantis won't be able to read your mind and you can defeat 
    him by punching him.
     FMV ofcourse. Go into the new area. Meryl will leave you. If you 
    haven't gotten the night-vision goggles you can get them on the right 
    side where there is the dead end. Now go to the snow area and crawl 
    under the log. There are wolves in this new area. Go up then right then 
    down where there is nothing but a dead end. There are two crawl spaces 
    however. There are items in the south and the exit to the right crawl 
    spaces. Equip your gun and shoot Meryl once, she'll slap you. Then equip 
    in a cardboard box and the wolf cub who is in love with Meryl will do 
    the "call of nature" on you. Now no wolf is going to attack you if 
    you'll equip yourself in the same cardboard box. Enter the door and 
    there'll be a cut-scene. Get the claymore mines. Go towards Meryl and 
    there'll be a FMV sequence. Meryl shot has been shot. You need to rescue 
    her. I AM SORRY BUT YOU GOTTA GO BACK TO THE GUNROOM WHERE YOU FOUGHT 
    OCELOT. There'll find the gun you need. PSG-1 (Sniper gun). Go back to 
    where Meryl was. 
      Boss 5: Sniper Wolf.
    Equip your PSG-1 (cool isn't it). Watch where her breath is and when she 
    appears, shoot her. Repeat the same thing and you'll defeat her. Meryl 
    has gone. You can get the bullets from this area. Now save before you do 
    anything. Move towards the Level-6 security door. FMV. You have been 
    held as a prisoner. You have two choices surrender or go through the 
    torture. That's why there are two endings. You surrender, Meryl dies. 
    Bad ending. You go through the torture and resist it, Meryl has been 
    saved. Good ending. However, if you die when you are being tortured. 
    Game Over and no continues.
       As a true man and especially what Snake would do is to go through the 
    torture. What do you have to do in the torture cell? Ocelot'll tell you. 
    You will be tortured twice. In the cell Snake won't have any items or 
    weapons but don't worry. After the second torture the guard, after some 
    while will go the toilet? When he does Otacon (the scientist) will come 
    and give you some items. When he goes you can either use the tomato 
    ketchup or crawl under the bed to fool the guard. He'll be alarmed and 
    will open the door, then get up and kill the guard and you are free. Go 
    to the only room there is and enter it. There you'll find your kit with 
    weapons and all. Enter the door on the right. Hmmm don't you think you 
    have come here before? Ofcourse. You have come here again, this is where 
    it all started (well almost). Now you gotta go back to where you fought 
    Sniper Wolf. When you get there, there will be a cut-scene and FMV. Then 
    go to the door where you had been caught and enter it. You are in Tower 
    A. Go up than left to a door and enter it. As you'll enter the door 
    guards will come running after you. Kill them and get the rope and start 
    climbing the stairs. Equip your FAMAS and shoot anyone you see. There is 
    no need of stealth here, it's impossible. When you reach the roof climb 
    the ladder. Then open the door and move a bit forward. FMV. Equip your 
    rope than move a bit forward.
      Your objective now is to go down the building via the rope. How? The 
    colonel will you. When you go down use your scope to spot three soldiers 
    ready to gun you down. Well, you gun them down with your sniper or 
    Nikita. Then proceed to the north, there's that blasted hind again. Go 
    left and enter the door. Get stinger and stinger missiles. Then enter 
    another door and go down the stair. In the end the stairs would be 
    broken then go up again. Proceed down and there will be a cut-scene and 
    FMV. Then go upstairs and use chaff grenades to confuse the cameras. 
    When you reach the top, collect the stinger missiles and climb up. Then 
    enter the door. FMV. 
      Boss 6:Hind.
    Use your stinger missiles and hide behind the crate that's near the 
    door. Liquid (who's in the hind) will fire missiles at you. You'll be 
    unharmed if you will hide behind the crate. After about 8 or 10 hits the 
    hind will be destroyed.
     FMV. Go down the stairs to the elevator. This time it works. Enter it 
    and go to the new floor. When the lift starts, you'll get a call from 
    Otacon. You'll know what's going on, kill the guards who are on the 
    elevator with you. In this new area all you have to do is to get out of 
    here. There are some bullets here if you want them. You are out in the 
    open again. Move a bit forward and you'll get sniped. Don't worry, Snake 
    isn't even bleeding! You'll get a call. well look who's here. 
     Boss 7:Sniper Wolf.
     Round 2. This is the last time you'll fight her and this time you'll 
    kill her. Use your Sniper and Diazepam (a drug) so you want your arms 
    (Snake's) won't move. Also use your thermal goggles so you can spot Wolf 
    easily.
     FMV. Wolf has died and Otacon's sad because he liked her. Continue your 
    quest or mission I should say. There area lot of doors here where there 
    are rations and bullets etc. When you get all the things you need go 
    into the level-6 door and enter it. Use chaff grenades to confuse the 
    cameras, then go down.
                           ************** END OF DISC 1**************
    No FMV. Enter the door. You are in a blast furnace. No worries here of 
    getting caught because if you do you'll have to fight only one soldier 
    or so. The lift's not working. Now what do we do? I'll tell you, there's 
    a space on the left side of the screen where you can push your self to 
    the wall go to the north side. Beware of the thing that is constantly 
    moving, if you touch it you'll get knocked down into lava. When you 
    reach the north side go down the stairs. There are bullets in this area 
    too. Go south into a room where there is steam coming out of pipes. 
    Remember this room, just remember it ok? Go north. Start the lift or 
    whatever it is. Guards will jump out of no where, so kill them. When you 
    have gotten down there's another lift waiting for you and so are the 
    claymore mines. Get them and start the lift again. Hmm what are ravens 
    doing here? When you reach the bottom get the Nikita missiles and open 
    the huge door at the north.
     Boss 8:Vulcan Raven.
    Round two again. You can use Nikita missiles, C4s and claymore mines to 
    defeat this man. Don't go in front of him because he'll nail you with a. 
    a . helicopter's machine-guns!
    FMV. Go north and enter the next area. Lot's of camera's so use chaff 
    grenades. If you'll go upstairs you'll find stinger missiles. Enter the 
    next door.  Proceed a bit forward. Keep going. aah wow! You are standing 
    in front of Metal Gear Rex. Keep going up the ladders and you'll keep 
    getting calls. When you reach the top go to the left side of Rex's head 
    and down the ladder. Proceed until you reach some small stairs. Go up 
    and watch FMV. Kill the guards and go to the bottom. Your most important 
    card is lost. It's not an American Express card it's the PAL key card. 
    Your objective is to find it. It is in this area. Where is it? It's some 
    where in the water. Find it and then go up again into the room where the 
    three computers are. Insert the Pal key card in the left computer. Then 
    go where you fought Vulcan Raven and wait for a few minutes. You'll see 
    that the PAL key card has turned blue. Go back again and insert the card 
    in the middle computer. Now last, go back in the steam room (remember?) 
    and wait for a few minutes. The card has turned red. Go way back again 
    and insert the card key in the right computer. FMV.
    You'll get a call. The colonel's furious, you have done the wrong thing. 
    You had to stop Metal Gear not to start it. You'll also find out that it 
    wasn't Mister Miller you were talking to, it was Liquid all the time. 
    You are trapped in poisonous gas. Call Otacon via the codec. He'll open 
    the door for you. Get out and follow Liquid. FMV. 
     Boss 9:Metal Gear Rex.
    This is it folks. It's Metal Gear and you'll have to fight this huge 
    thing. Use chaff grenades to make Rex uncomfortable and use stinger 
    missiles on the disk on his left shoulder. Call Otacon for some info 
    about him. When you have beaten him enough the Cyborg Ninja will show up 
    to help you. He's actually Franki Jeager, your buddy who died in war 
    fighting you! There'll be some FMV and cut-scenes that will show how the 
    Ninja dies fighting Metal Gear. Snake gets furious. He's gonna blow 
    Metal Gear Rex out for good this time.
     Boss 10:Metal Gear Rex.
    Round two. Same old thing you have got to do, only use stun-grenades 
    instead of chaff-grenades on him.
    There'll be a long FMV sequence. Snake has got to fight and defeat 
    Liquid hand-to-hand under three minutes.
      Boss 11:Liquid.
    You have three minutes. Keep punching him and he'll be defeated. 
    FMV. If you had surrendered to Ocelot in the prison cell, Meryl will be 
    dead and if you had survived the torture Meryl will be alive. You will 
    have either Otacon or Meryl as a companion to get out of this place. The 
    situation is that the security of defense have captured the colonel and 
    Naomi under some circumstances. You have ten minutes to get out of this 
    place before the jets nuke this place. Get into the jeep and kill the 
    guards. Keep proceeding and. oh great! It's LIQUID. I don't think he's 
    gonna leave Solid even in hell. Now all you have to do is to fire at 
    him. After you have shoot him ten times both of the jeeps will crash. 
    CONGRATS on ending the game. Watch the ending FMV sequence. WHAT 
    HAPPENED? I won't spoil this for anything.
                                         ******* END OF GAME*******
