Secrets

  • Enhance Grip Level Easier

    You can enhance your grip level by doing 100 pull-ups on a ledge, or you can do 10 drop-and-cathes. To do a drop-and-catch, find two ledges which are parrelel to each other. Hang off the higher ledge, and press X, then repeatedly press Triangle. You should grab on the lower ledge. If you do this 10 times, you get an enhanced grip level. There are 3 total grip levels. Two ideal places to do this are the Tanker's Engine Room, and the Plant's Strut D.

  • Guy on toilet from MGS1

    When you get to the Shell 1 Core and you're supposed to listen in on a conversation between Solidus and Ocelot, point the Directional Microphone over to the left near the stage and you should hear Johnny from MGS1 talk to himself. It has a hilarious ending.

  • More grip

    If you hang on a ledge and press L2 and R2 you will do a pull-up. If you do enough of these, your grip level will rise. The maximum is level 3.
