== INTRODUCTION ===============================================================
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This FAQ is for the Microsoft Xbox version of Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance. 
I've written this FAQ because those that are written for the PlayStation2 
version of the game (Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty) do not carry over 
to the Xbox version, due to a few differences in the games. Most notably is 
the fact that Substance has MORE dog tags. You can hold up the Marines in 
the Holds of the Tanker in this version of the game, and some of them have 
dog tags.

This FAQ is now complete, with all of the information for 100% of the dog 
tags in the game, as well as full unlocking info and lots more.

If you find any errors, incorrect information or know something that you feel 
should be added to the FAQ, please send me an email and let me know.

== GENERAL INFORMATION ========================================================
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Why do I want to collect Dog Tags?

Collecting dog tags allows you to unlock bonus items that cannot be obtained 
otherwise. These bonus items give you Unlimited Ammo (Tanker/Plant), 
Invisibility (Tanker/Plant), Infinite Grip Strength (Plant) and Infinite 
Oxygen (Plant). See the UNLOCKING INFO section for more details.

  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. How do I get Dog Tags?

All of the enemy guards in the game, as well as a few Marines are wearing dog 
tags. You can take them by sneaking up on an enemy and raising your weapon. 
The enemy will raise his hands. You should then walk around to the front of 
the enemy with your weapon still raised (see your manual to learn how to do 
this) and go into first-person view. Now point your weapon either at the 
enemy's head or crotch. The enemy will start to shake in fear and his dog 
tags will fall to the floor.

  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. What do I do with a guard who doesn't shake in fear?

Some enemies will not give up their tags as easily as others. They will 
stand firm when you hold them up and even dare you to shoot them. There are 
a few different ways to handle this.

      A. Deafen Him
         While standing directly in front of a guard, point your weapon to 
         either side of his head and fire a bullet right next to his ear. 
         You can do this with any weapon that fires live rounds (NOT the M9)

      B. Wound Him
         Fire a single round from the USP or SOCOM into his arm, hand, leg, 
         or foot. Do not shoot his head or torso... as this may kill him.

      C. Frighten Him
         If you have a large weapon like the Stinger Missile Launcher, point 
         it directly into his face.

If you choose A or B, after doing so, move the gun back to his face or crotch. 
He will now change his attitude and give up the tags. If you choose C, he'll 
start shaking right away and the tags will fall.

  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. How do I build up my Grip Strength?

In order to get two of the Hold tags (one in Hold No. 1 and another in 
Hold No. 3) you will need to traverse the east wall catwalk. In order to do 
this you will either have to have full health or a Grip Level of 3. Raising 
your grip strength requires that you do 100 pull-ups. Find yourself a railing 
that you can hang off of, and then while hanging simply press and hold the 
shoulder buttons (or white and black buttons if using a different button 
configuration) at the same time to do a pull-up. Make sure that you wait 
until Snake has locked his elbows or the pull-up won't count. When you've 
done 100 you will get a call on the Codec and your meter will change to 
Level 2. After another 100 the meter will change but you won't get a call, so 
keep your eye on the meter to know when to stop.

  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. Is there a quicker way to raise my Grip Level?

A much quicker (albiet more dangerous) way to build up your Grip Level is 
by performing a series of Hang-Drop-Catches. To do this, you must be on a 
platform who's railing lines up with the railing on the level below it. In 
the Tanker Chapter you can do this in Hold No. 1, right from the platform 
you start on. Here's how it works.

   1. Walk up to the railing and press Y
   2. Once you're hanging press A
   3. You'll start to drop, so IMMEDIATELY start tapping Y
   4. You'll catch the railing below, press Y to get back on the platform
   5. Go up the ladder to the top platform again and repeat the process

There is also a place to do this in the Engine Room, right where you enter 
it. It's easier to do it here since there are stairs rather than a ladder, 
but if you're trying to make it to the Holds with full strength before 
building up your Grip Level, you won't be able to get back there if you 
do indeed HAVE to raise it to get those two tags.

  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. Do I HAVE to build up my Grip Level?

Actually, no, you don't. If you can keep your health full 'til you reach the 
Holds (or have Rations and can get it back to max) then you'll lose grip slow 
enough that you can make it through the Holds to get both tags.

  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

7. Konami sent me a letter saying that my name would be on a tag... did you 
   find my name on a dog tag?

Probably not. I've heard/read that the most recent Konami Dog Tag Campaign 
was for the PlayStation2 release of MGS2: Substance which is due some time 
in 2003.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

8. Do I get anything special for collecting every tag in the game?

Yes you do. After collecting every tag in the game, finish your game. During 
the Clear Code and Save Game screens, pay attention to the bottom of the 
screen. You will see a message from Konami, directing you to a hidden web 
page where you can download MGS2: Substance wallpaper, icons and sound bytes. 


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

9. Will you give me the web page address?

Absolutely not... don't even bother asking. This FAQ is my help to you to get 
100%, but in order to get that reward you're going to have to earn it. Good 
luck, and be patient. The bonuses on that web page are worth the effort.

* indicates a guard that won't give up his tags easily

TIP - One set of tags on the Navigational deck, wing is being worn by Olga. In 
      order to get them, unequip your weapon, pick up her body, and then drop 
      it. The tags will fall to the floor. Don't leave the area without taking 
      her tags... she won't be there if you return.

TIP - Two of the soldiers in the Engine Room are one-shot deals. If you miss 
      them, you'll have to play through the Tanker again to get their tags. 
      The first soldier is the one standing right in the first doorway of the 
      Engine Room. The second is the guy who fixes the door near the exit to 
      the Deck-2, port.

TIP - If, after the Olga battle, you can't find one of the soldiers in the 
      Deck-A, crew's lounge, leave the area via the southeast door and then 
      re-enter. He should be there, now.

TIP - Some enemies with tags only appear after certain events. These events 
      will take place in the order they are listed below.

-- Deck-D, crew's quarters            appears after you enter the room in 
                                      northeast corner of Deck-D
-- Deck-A, crew's lounge              appears after Olga boss battle
-- Navigational deck, wing            appears after walking to the east side 
                                      of the area (opposite from Olga)


.. Hold No. 1 .................................................................
The first one requires you to have built up your Grip to Level 2.
From where you start, go down the first ladder. Go to the railing and 
press Y to hang from the outside of it. Now, press Up to go all the 
way to the other end of the room. Press Y once you reach the other 
end to swing back over the railing. A Marine with a dog tag is on 
the platform.

The second Marine is standing just to the left of the projector. Be
careful not to step in front of the projector when going for him.

.. Hold No. 3 .................................................................
The first guy is standing to the right of Metal Gear Ray and he keeps
nodding off. He's in a spot where you don't have to worry about any
of the Marines seeing you hold him up.

The last Marine in this hold is up on the ledge on the right of the 
room. The only way to get here is to hang from the railing in 
Hold No. 1 (see above) and move into Hold No. 2 through the door
where the Marine with the dog tag was. Again, hang from the railing
and go through the second Hold the same way you went through the 
first. When you enter Hold No. 3 the Marine will be right in front 
of you, waiting for you to take his tags.

TIP - Some enemies with tags only appear after certain events. These events 
      will take place in the order they are listed below.

-- Deck-D, crew's quarters            appears after you enter the room in 
                                      northeast corner of Deck-D
-- Deck-A, crew's lounge              appears after Olga boss battle
-- Navigational deck, wing            appears after walking to the east side 
                                      of the area (opposite from Olga)


.. Hold No. 1 .................................................................
The first one requires you to have built up your Grip to Level 2. From where 
you start, go down the first ladder. Go to the railing and press Y to hang 
from the outside of it. Now, press Up to go all the way to the other end of 
the room. Press Y once you reach the other end to swing back over the railing. 
A Marine with a dog tag is on the platform.

The next set of tags is quite difficult to obtain. It's easiest to get once 
you've obtained the Stealth Suit. Equip the Stealth Suit and go to the front 
of the Marine grouping. The Marine wearing the tags is the third from the 
right in the second row (and he is the only Marine in the room wearing 
boxer shorts). Pull your gun on the Marine right in front of him to get him 
to raise his arms, and then shoot him with an M9 dart to knock him to the 
floor. Now, pull your gun on the Marine with the tags to get him to raise 
his arms and you should be able to see the tags sparkling (in first-person 
view). Now, unequip your firearm and press the X button to put him in a 
headlock. Drag him to the left side of the room, letting go of the X button 
every few seconds and then pressing it again (this will keep him from 
passing out). Once there, equip your gun again and hold him up.

The other way to do this (without the Stealth Suit) is to tranquilize every 
Marine to the right of the one you're after. You can then get behind him, put 
him in a headlock and drag him away to get his tags.

.. Hold No. 3 .................................................................
The first guy is standing to the right of Metal Gear Ray and he keeps nodding 
off. He's in a spot where you don't have to worry about any of the Marines 
seeing you hold him up.

The next set of tags is another where it's easiest to get with the Stealth 
Suit. Equip the Stealth Suit and go to the front of the Marine grouping, 
between them and the stage. The Marine wearing the tags is the fourth from the 
left (fifth from the right) in the front row. Pull your gun on him to get him 
to raise his arms and you should be able to see the tags sparkling (in 
first-person view). Now, unequip your firearm and press the X button to put 
him in a headlock. Drag him to the left side of the room, letting go of the 
X button every few seconds and then pressing it again (this will keep him from 
passing out). Once there, equip your gun again and hold him up.

The other way to do this (without the Stealth Suit) is to tranquilize every 
Marine to the right of the one you're after. You can then get behind him, put 
him in a headlock and drag him away to get his tags.

The last Marine in this hold is up on the ledge on the right of the room. The 
only way to get here is to hang from the railing in Hold No. 1 (see above) 
and move into Hold No. 2 through the door where the Marine with the dog tag 
was. Again, hang from the railing and go through the second Hold the same way 
you went through the first. When you enter Hold No. 3 the Marine will be 
right in front of you, waiting for you to take his tags.

* indicates a guard that won't give up his tags easily

TIP - One set of tags on the Navigational deck, wing is being worn by Olga. In 
      order to get them, unequip your weapon, pick up her body, and then drop 
      it. The tags will fall to the floor. Don't leave the area without taking 
      her tags... she won't be there if you return.

TIP - Two of the soldiers in the Engine Room are one-shot deals. If you miss 
      them, you'll have to play through the Tanker again to get their tags. 
      The first soldier is the one standing right in the first doorway of the 
      Engine Room. The second is the guy who fixes the door near the exit to 
      the Deck-2, port.

TIP - If, after the Olga battle, you can't find one of the soldiers in the 
      Deck-A, crew's loungs, leave the area via the southeast door and then 
      re-enter. He should be there, now.

TIP - Some enemies with tags only appear after certain events. These events 
      will take place in the order they are listed below.

-- Deck-C, crew's quarters            appears after Olga boss battle
-- Deck-D, crew's quarters            appears after you enter the room in 
                                      northeast corner of Deck-D
-- Deck-A, crew's lounge              appears after Olga boss battle
-- Navigational deck, wing            appears after walking to the east side 
                                      of the area (opposite from Olga)


.. Hold No. 1 .................................................................
The first one requires you to have built up your Grip to Level 3.
From where you start, go down the first ladder. Go to the railing and 
press Y to hang from the outside of it. Now, press Up to go all the 
way to the other end of the room. Press Y once you reach the other 
end to swing back over the railing. A Marine with a dog tag is on 
the platform.

The second Marine is standing just to the left of the projector. Be
careful not to step in front of the projector when going for him.

The last Marine is standing in front of a crate in the southwest part
of the room. There are two guys who are not part of the main group
over here. The guy you want is further left and south than the other.

.. Hold No. 2 .................................................................
The first Marine is standing just to the right of the projector. Be
careful not to step in front of the projector when going for him.

The second one is walking around to the left of the main grouping of
Marines. From the back of the room, you need to make your way up the
right side, across the from and then back down the left side to get 
to him.

.. Hold No. 3 .................................................................
The first guy is standing on the left side of the room, just north and
left of the camera on the left (in front of the crate). 

The next guy is standing to the right of Metal Gear Ray and he keeps
nodding off. He's in a spot where you don't have to worry about any
of the Marines seeing you hold him up.

The last Marine in this hold is up on the ledge on the right of the 
room. The only way to get here is to hang from the railing in 
Hold No. 1 (see above) and move into Hold No. 2 through the door
where the Marine with the dog tag was. Again, hang from the railing
and go through the second Hold the same way you went through the 
first. When you enter Hold No. 3 the Marine will be right in front 
of you, waiting for you to take his tags.

                                      of the area (opposite from Olga)

The first one requires you to have built up your Grip to Level 3.
From where you start, go down the first ladder. Go to the railing and 
press Y to hang from the outside of it. Now, press Up to go all the 
way to the other end of the room. Press Y once you reach the other 
end to swing back over the railing. A Marine with a dog tag is on 
the platform.

The second Marine is walking around in the northwest corner of the 
room. I'm pretty sure he is the ONLY person moving on the floor. Wait 
'til he moves to the north of the last crate before holding him up. 
In this spot the other Marines can't see him.

The last Marine is standing in front of a crate in the southwest part
of the room. There are two guys who are not part of the main group
over here. The guy you want is further left and south than the other.

.. Hold No. 2 .................................................................
The two Marines in this area are both at the northern edge of the 
main grouping of Marines, one on the left and one on the right. They
are the two guys walking around, NOT the guys at the northern edge of 
the room just standing guard. Since the Marines move their sight from
left to right as the projector changes, you need to time your hold up
so that it starts right after the projector changes and the Marines 
move their heads.

.. Hold No. 3 .................................................................
The first Marine you should grab is on the right side of the room.
There are two over here when you first come in, but let them move a
bit and one will make his way up and to the right of Metal Gear Ray,
to a spot where no one can see him.

The next guy is standing on the left side of the room, just north and
left of the camera on the left (in front of the crate). Just make 
sure that the Marine patrolling between the group and the Commendant
is walking away from you and not towards you when you hold him up.

The next guy is the one I just mentioned, patrolling the area between
the group and the Commendant. Wait for him to walk to the left or to
the right of the group so he's out of their line of sight before 
holding him up.

The last Marine in this hold is up on the ledge on the right of the 
room. The only way to get here is to hang from the railing in 
Hold No. 1 (see above) and move into Hold No. 2 through the door
where the Marine with the dog tag was. Again, hang from the railing
and go through the second Hold the same way you went through the 
first. When you enter Hold No. 3 the Marine will be right in front 
of you, waiting for you to take his tags.

      the Deck-2, port.

TIP - If, after the Olga battle, you can't find one of the soldiers in the 
      Deck-A, crew's loungs, leave the area via the southeast door and then 
      re-enter. He should be there, now.

TIP - Some enemies with tags only appear after certain events. These events 
      will take place in the order they are listed below.

-- Deck-C, crew's quarters            appears after Olga boss battle
-- Deck-D, crew's quarters            appears after you enter the room in 
                                      northeast corner of Deck-D
-- Deck-A, crew's lounge              appears after Olga boss battle
-- Navigational deck, wing            appears after walking to the east side 
                                      of the area (opposite from Olga)


.. Hold No. 1 .................................................................
The first one requires you to have built up your Grip to Level 3.
From where you start, go down the first ladder. Go to the railing and 
press Y to hang from the outside of it. Now, press Up to go all the 
way to the other end of the room. Press Y once you reach the other 
end to swing back over the railing. A Marine with a dog tag is on 
the platform.

The second Marine is walking around in the northwest corner of the 
room. I'm pretty sure he is the ONLY person moving on the floor. Wait 
'til he moves to the north of the last crate before holding him up. 
In this spot the other Marines can't see him.

.. Hold No. 2 .................................................................
The two Marines in this area are both at the northern edge of the 
main grouping of Marines, one on the left and one on the right. They
are the two guys walking around, NOT the guys at the northern edge of 
the room just standing guard. Since the Marines move their sight from
left to right as the projector changes, you need to time your hold up
so that it starts right after the projector changes and the Marines 
move thier heads.

.. Hold No. 3 .................................................................
The first Marine you should grab is on the right side of the room.
There are two over here when you first come in, but let them move a
bit and one will make his way up and to the right of Metal Gear Ray,
to a spot where no one can see him.

The next guy is standing on the left side of the room, just north and
left of the camera on the left (in front of the crate). Just make 
sure that the Marine patrolling between the group and the Commendant
is walking away from you and not towards you when you hold him up.

The next guy is the one I just mentioned, patrolling the area between
the group and the Commendant. Wait for him to walk to the left or to
the right of the group so he's out of their line of sight before 
holding him up.

The last Marine in this hold is up on the ledge on the right of the 
room. The only way to get here is to hang from the railing in 
Hold No. 1 (see above) and move into Hold No. 2 through the door
where the Marine with the dog tag was. Again, hang from the railing
and go through the second Hold the same way you went through the 
first. When you enter Hold No. 3 the Marine will be right in front 
of you, waiting for you to take his tags.

TIP - Do not leave the Strut A Deep Sea Dock in the beginning before getting 
      the dog tags from BOTH of the soldiers here. You won't get another 
      opportunity to get them and you'll have to play the entire mission 
      through again just for one or two tags.

TIP - Get the tags from BOTH soldiers on the AB connecting bridge your first
      time on it. After that, only one soldier will appear, so you only have
      one chance to get both tags.

TIP - The tags located in Arsenal Gear-Ascending Colon are being worn by 
      Snake. As soon as you regain control of Raiden after getting your 
      gear back, unequip the HF Blade and knock Snake out (either punch/kick 
      him or use the chokehold method). Once he's on the floor, pick him up 
      (using the X button) and then drop him. The tags will come loose.

TIP - Some enemies with tags only appear after certain events. These events 
      will take place in the order they are listed below.

-- Strut A roof                     appears after meeting Stillman
-- Strut B Transformer Room         appears after meeting Stillman

* indicates a guard that won't give up his tags easily

TIP - The tags located in Arsenal Gear-Ascending Colon are being worn by 
      Snake. As soon as you regain control of Raiden after getting your 
      gear back, unequip the HF Blade and knock Snake out (either punch/kick 
      him or use the chokehold method). Once he's on the floor, pick him up 
      (using the X button) and then drop him. The tags will come loose.

TIP - Some enemies with tags only appear after certain events. These events 
      will take place in the order they are listed below.
