 SOLID SNAKE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The legendary hero who has thrice saved the world from the menace of Metal
Gear in the past, Solid Snake is an infiltration expert who always completes
his mission no matter how difficult the odds. Originally a member of FOXHOUND,
now a member of the NGO "Philanthropy", an anti-Metal Gear group.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 RAIDEN
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

A member of the special forces unit FOXHOUND, Raiden has no experience in real
life combat situations, but his skills as a soldier have been honed to the
highest levels through VR simulation training. The infiltration of the Big
Shell is his first actual mission.

[4] THE BASICS                                                          [0400]

==============================================================================

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 CQC
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

CQC stands for close-quarters-combat, which proves to be very useful in this 
game. Some times, if you don't have any guns, this proves to be vey useful. 
If an enemy has spotted you, press O to unleash a 3-hit combo on your 
opponent, knocking him to the ground. If you aren't noticed by a guard, sneak 
up behind the enemy and press Square when you are right behind him. You will
grab the enemy by the throat. There are several techniques used once you've 
grabbed your opponent:

 Direct Throw (Left Analog + O) - You will slam the enemy to the ground, 
                                  stunning him

 Human Shield (Square) - Once the enemy is grabbed, press Square to use the 
                         enemy as a human shield

 Neck Snap (Tap Square) - Snake will start to choke the enemy, then proceeds
                          to snap their neck

You can also hold up enemies, but this really doesn't have anything to do
with CQC. If you sneak up behind a guard and hold down Square (with a weapon
equipped), Snake will pull out the gun and tell the guard to freeze. The enemy
will stop in their tracks. Hold down L1 and slowly walk in front of them. Now
you can use R1 to aim your gun at the enemy. If you aim it down at their
crotch, the guards will usually beg for mercy and drop any items, including
dog tags. After collecting the goods, you can then dispose of them. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 STEALTH
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Stealth is what this whole game is all about. Instead of normal shooter games 
where you wipe the field of enemies, you must be very strategic in this game. 
if an enemy is near, use the D-Pad to stalk him instead of the left analog 
stick, where you will make more noise. Crawling under boxes and vehicles is 
very important for being undetected. Press X to crouch, then use the analog 
stick to crawl under platforms or other objects. 

In order to lose all hope of being detected, drag unconcious or dead bodies in
unaccessible or hard-to-find places, such as dropping them off of a bridge or
hiding them under an object. If an enemy spots a body of their comrade, they
will be even more cautious than before. When Snake is up against a wall, he
can knock on the wall by pressing O to attract nearby enemies to their
unsuspecting doom. Sadistic, I know. I love it.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 SAVING
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

I must admit, I didn't know how to save until late in the game. If you don't
explore enough with in-game menus and such, then you will have the same 
problem as I did. In order to save your game, you must press select and access
your radio. From there, type in the frequency "141.96" to contact Otacon to
save. Later in the game, you will have to use the frequency "140.96" and
contact Rose in order to save your game. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 ENEMY STATS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Certain icons appear over enemies head to represent their status:

 ? - Suspicious of something (might have seen something strange). Enemy 
     proceeds to stare where he possibly saw you, then continues on his patrol

 ! (Blue) - May have heard a strange sound or seen a dead body. Enemy moves in
            to investigate.

 ! (Red) - Enemy spots Snake. The enemy will enter alert stage and tries to 
           call for backup.

 *** - Unconcious. Either kill or avoid the guard before he wakes up.

 ZZZ - Asleep. Either kill or avoid the guard before he wakes up.


Certain alert stages will occur if the enemies become suspicious of you. If 
one comes up, a meter will appear under your radar and it will start to
deplete. You have until the meter runs out before the enemy resumes patrolling
and loses all suspicion of anything:

 Alert Phase - When a guard spots Snake. Guards will come to reinforce each 
               other. If you kill or tranquilize the guard who saw you, alert
               stage will turn off.

 Evasion Phase - Occurs when the alert phase timer expires. Enemies will have 
                 lost sight of Snake, but will resume the process of looking
                 for him. Another meter will appear once this phase starts.

 Caution Phase - This phase is triggered when the evastion phase ends, and 
                 another meter will start. Enemies patrol the area like
                 normal, but are more alert and cautious.

 NOTE: The item placement, enemy patrol routes, and all that junk is based on
       the Normal difficulty.

 NOTE: I'll be using the terms "north", "south", "east", and "west" in this
       walkthrough a lot. I really hope you know what they mean.

 AFT DECK
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: Pentazemin, Ration, Bandages
 Weapons: M9, Chaff Grenades

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

Well, here we go. After the opening cinema, a small tutorial will start. You
can skip it by pressing Start, but I recommend that beginners sit through it. 
Once the tutorial is over, you're ready to roam around on the deck. There's 
good news and bad news about this area. The good news is that the rain will
help drown out your movements, letting you sneak around easier. The bad news 
is that Snake can actually catch a cold if staying out in the rain for a long 
period of time. If Snake has a cold, he will sneeze at random times, possibly
alerting guards. Cure colds with Medicine.

At the start, walk to the left to find a box under a staircase. Collect it 
for some Bandages. There is a guard north of you, as you can tell by his 
flashlight. You can also notice him on the radar; the guard is the red blip 
and the blue area is his range of view. Remember, this is a stealth game; 
don't go runnin' and gunnin' all over the place. Lean up against walls, hide 
behind stuff, and tranquilize enemies.

For now, all you have is an M9 tranquilizer gun. Enter first-person view by
holding R1 and tranq the guard when his back is towards you. You can drag his
body around the boat, so unequip your gun (hold down R2 to access your weapons
and L2 to access your items) and hold down Square. Drag him north towards a
white box on the ground. Snake will throw the body over the boat's edge.

Run north to find a Ration behind a small box. Now make your way to the right 
side of the deck and ascend the small flight of stairs. Jump over a box to 
find some Chaff Grenades. Go back down the stairs and head north to the far 
end, where you'll find a Pentazemin behind a metal box. Climb the stairs and 
take out the guard, then go north to find anoter set of Bandages. 

Climb up to the third floor to find one last guard. Take him out, then return 
to the second floor of the left side of the deck. When you approach the metal 
door, Otacon will call you. After the conversation, repeatedly tap Triangle 
next to the hatch to open it. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 DECK A, CREW'S QUARTERS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: Ration
 Weapons: M9 Ammo

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

Proceed south to find two sliding doors. Go through either one to enter a 
tiny locker room. Open the lockers to find a Ration and some M9 Ammo. A neat 
way to keep hidden is to knock out a guard, then stow him in one of the 
lockers. After the guard is taken out, exit the locker room and go down the 
northeast hall and through the door. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 DECK A, CREW'S LOUNGE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: Ration                       
 Weapons: M9 Ammo, Stun Grenade

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

There are two guards situated in this fancy area. From the start, go down the 
stairs in front of you for some Stun Grenades. Return to the entrance and 
look to the left. There is one guard patrolling the hallway, so tranq him 
before you're spotted. The second enemy walks around the tables, so crawl 
behind the window to reach a magazine rack. Shoot one of the magazine to 
distract him, then take him out with any method. 

There is a Ration past the magazine rack and some M9 Ammo behind the mini 
bar. The mini bar is another good hiding place if you are accidentally 
spotted. Go up the staircase once both guards are taken out and head through 
the doorway on the right.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 DECK B, CREW'S QUARTERS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: Ration
 Weapons: None

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

Go south a little ways to find a dark-lit corner. Not only is it a good 
hiding spot, but you can also find a Ration here. Tranq the guard south of 
here; he walks back and forth through the hallway. Hide him in one of the 
lockers and go down the hall. Continue to the western side of the area to 
find a secluded staircase. Ascend the stairs to the next set of crew's 
quarters.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 DECK C, CREW'S QUARTERS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: None
 Weapons: Chaff Grandes

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

Snake will take notice of the security camera in the hallway. On the radar, 
it looks just like a normal guard -- it has a range of view and everything. 
Hug the northern wall and walk under the camera to avoid being spotted. 
Alternatively, you can use a Chaff Grenade to disarm it momentarily. Go past 
the camera to reach a flight of stairs. Open the locker behind them for a 
Chaff Grenade and head up the steps.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 DECK D, CREW'S QUARTERS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: Ration, Cardboard Box 1
 Weapons: M9 Ammo

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

As soon as you climb up the stairs, a guard will enter the cafeteria on the 
left. Quietly follow him into the room and Snake will notice another camera 
on the southwest corner of the room. Ignore it and knock out the guard. Hide 
him behind the counter, where you'll also find a Ration. Return to the 
entrance of the area and walk to the left. When you come to a fork, go north 
to enter a small warehouse. You can find some M9 Ammo and Cardboard Box 1 in 
the back. 

Exit the warehouse and look towards the southern end of the hallway to spot 
some massive contraption. Otacon will phone Snake and tell him to MOVE NO 
FURTHER! There is a tripwire linked to a whole bunch of C4 explosives. If you 
trip the lasers, you'll go kaboom. In order to find the invisible lasers, you 
can do one of two things. One option is to equip your Cigarettes; the smoke 
will help detect the lasers. The second option is to shoot the fire 
extinguisher on the other end of the death trap. The smoke will render the 
lasers visible. 

Before you do either one, wait for the guard to walk near the lasers. He will 
be in sight, but he won't spot you. Tranquilize him, then do one of two 
methods above. That way you won't be spotted as soon as you pass the lasers. 
Oh, by the way, simply crawl under the lasers to avoid blowing up. Once past 
the C4 trap, head west and up the staircase.

 DECK E, THE BRIDGE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: None
 Weapons: None

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

Snake will find a bunch of dead people here. Lovely. After the scene, go 
through the door to the left. There is a box containing USP Ammo, but you 
can't get it since you don't even have the weapon. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 NAVIGATIONAL DECK, PORT WING
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: Ration, Thermal Goggles, Wet Box
 Weapons: USP, M9 Ammo

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

Snake will encounter a woman in this cutscene -- an evil woman. He attempts to
capture her, but she has other plans. Boss time already? You know it!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Olga Gurlukovich
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Olga will run all over the place during this battle, but you should stay in 
relatively the same spot: the set of boxes in the center of the arena. First 
off, shoot out the spotlight behind Olga. That way it will be harder for her 
to find you. Next, check out the giant tarp on top of the boxes near Olga. If 
you shoot out the ropes on both sides, the tarp will fly off. Now you can 
peer in between the boxes for a clearer shot of Olga.

Olga has three hiding spots. The first is the massive group of boxes in the 
center; you can spot her through the boxes if you shot the tarp off. The
second is the pillar on the left side. Olga will sometimes perform a fancy
cartwheel and stop in the open, leaving you a few shots off without any 
interferance. Make sure to take cover a LOT, since Olga has incredible aim. 
Only peek out when she is reloading (when you don't hear any shots, 
basically). 

Olga also uses grenades in this battle. When you here her shout out something 
along the lines of "take that!", she will toss it at you. The loud rain 
sometimes deters from the noise that it makes, so simply run away from your 
position to avoid the explosion. 

This battle isn't too hard, but you have to make sure not to be too reckless. 
If you need any M9 Ammo, there is some in the middle of the arena. I found it 
easiest to hide behind the double stack of boxes on the right. Hold down R1 
to enter first-person view, then hold down L2 to strafe to the left. Let to 
to move back to your normal position. Use this tactic to peek out from behind 
the box. Peek, shoot, hide. Peek, shoot, hide. Peek, shoot, hid-- okay, I 
think you get the point.

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

After the battle and the cutscene that takes place afterwards, walk past 
Olga's unconscious body. If you want, you can shoot her to get a scolding 
from Otacon. I would suggest not using the USP you stole from her. Walk 
towards the tiny set of stairs and jump down on the other side to find a 
Ration tucked away in the corner. Go past the door that leads to the Bridge 
and go up the staircase.

Climb up the gigantic mast to find a pair of Thermal Goggles at the very top. 
Head back down and descend the stairs. Continue east for a soldier to enter 
the area. Tranq him before he climbs up the stairs. Once the coast is clear, 
go up the small steps and head to the back end to find a Wet Box. Like the 
name implies, this is a cardboard box that's totally soaked. It would not be 
wise to use this indoors. Walk through the door that the guard came out of.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 DECK E, THE BRIDGE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: None
 Weapons: USP Ammo

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Now that you have a USP, you can grab the ammo nearby. Go down the steps 
afterwards to the crew's quarters.

 DECK D, CREW'S QUARTERS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: None
 Weapons: None

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

Walk to the right to find a guard patrolling the hallway behind the C4 lasers.
Knock him out, then crawl under the lasers. Tranq the guard in the cafeteria
and and watch out for the soldier that occasionally comes up from downstairs.
I'd like to remind you that you CAN kill enemies now that you have the USP. I
also suggest that you shouldn't do it too often. First, it makes a loud noise
that can attract other enemies. Second, it's mean. You don't want to kill
everyone in a stealth game, do you? >:(

Once the coast is clear, go down the stairs. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 DECK C, CREW'S QUARTERS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: None
 Weapons: None

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

A guard is now present in this small area. He will walk to the left as soon 
as you go down the stairs. Knock him out before he turns around and hug the 
wall to avoid the security camera. You can also destroy it with a well-placed 
USP shot. Either way, proceed down the stairs on the west side of the hallway.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 DECK B, CREW'S QUARTERS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: None

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

The room is identical as when you first went through here. Go either north or 
south; it doesn't matter. Simply return to the door on the eastern side of 
the area to reach the crew's lounge again.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 DECK A, CREW'S LOUNGE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: None
 Weapons: USP Ammo

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

A lone guard patrols the main hallway. Take him out any way you'd like. Go 
down the western flight of stairs to find a rather stinky guard. Immobilize 
him and grab the USP Ammo down here. The flies will follow Snake now, but 
that isn't a big deal now that there are no enemies. If there were soliders 
left, the flies could reveal Snake's location. Return to the east side of the 
lounge and descend the stairs. Go through the door to reach the engine room. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 ENGINE ROOM, STARBOARD
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Items: Ration
 Weapons: Grenade, USP Ammo, M9 Ammo

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

Proceed north to spot the shadow of a rather old foe. Call Otacon for a funny 
conversation. Ignore the apparent danger lurking around the corner and go 
north. Haha, it's only an action figure. Oh Snake, you and your paranoia. 
Grab the USP Ammo from on top of the box. Don't bother opening up the 
lockers, especially the one on the left, unless you're a fan of dead bodies. 

Return to the hallway and go through the sliding door to the left. Don't walk 
in though, point your gun at the guard looking over the balcony. Tranq him 
and stow his body in a locker. Return to the lazy guard's post and head south 
down the catwalk. Stop when you get to the stairs and look down. A guard 
should be making his way towards the base of the stairs. When he stops, shoot 
him in the head with a tranquilizer. Proceed down the stairs and drag his 
lifeless body in the alley to the right.

Continue north and walk down the stairs. Tranquilize the next guard, who is 
facing the other way. One you have knocked him out, it is safe to shoot them 
without attracting any attention. If you wish, kill him and the guard on the 
floor above. 

Return to the bottom floor and head north down the catwalk. You will not only 
find some M9 Ammo back here, but if you look to the left, you'll find a guard 
across the chasm. I suggest killing him, because he will most likely wake up 
by the time you reach his body. Pop a cap in his head, then return to the 
staircase and walk to the left. 

There is a Ration on the far end of the walkway, so grab it if you'd like. 
Walk south and around the bend. Climb up the stairs and head north. You will 
find the dead body of the guard you killed. Shake his body for some items and 
collect the USP Ammo nearby. Go back down the catwalk and climb up the stairs 
here. You will find a guard on the side of a balcony who seems to be looking 
at something through his binoculars. Take him out and walk to the back end of 
the walkway.

Cross over to the left and you'll find some more USP Ammo. Follow the path to 
another set of stairs. Go up the stairs and shoot the guard patrolling. Walk 
to the end to find a door and continue through to leave the engine room.

A scene will occur when you enter the northern end of the area. A guard will 
come out from the southern door and report to his commanding officer. Hide 
behind the corner and take him out after the conversation ends. If you take 
out the guard as he's talking, then the guys on the other end of the line 
will send for backup. 

Collect the two sets of USP Ammo here and head north for an urgent call. 
There's another C4 laser trap here. We have a problem though. The lasers 
cannot be avoided and they MUST be disarmed. In order to disarm the lasers, 
you must use your USP and shoot out tiny boxes. They are distinguishable by 
blinking green lights. 

Alright, time for the first box. Equip your Thermal Goggles to check out the 
first set of lasers. Make sure you don't bump into them as you crouch nearby 
and get onto your stomach. Position yourself on the left side of the gate and 
take off the goggles. Look on the right side of the area and you should spot 
a small box with a blinking green light. Carefully aim your USP and shoot out 
the box. If you do, the first laser trap will be disarmed.

Get up and climb onto the lefternmost metal box. There's some USP Ammo on the 
top if you need it, but that's not what we're up here for. There is another 
set of C4 tucked away on a ledge north of your position. Enter first-person 
view and hold down L2 and R2: Snake will stand on his tippy toes. Doing this 
will give you access to another box, which is located above the C4 charges. 
Shoot it out to lower the second gate.

Now for the third box. Get on the ground and crawl past the first two gates; 
you can do this now that the lasers aren't in tact. Stay on the right side of 
the area and enter first-person mode. There is another C4 box positioned 
similar to the first one, except it's on the left side. Try holding down L2 
if you need some more room to destroy it. 

Once all three boxes are destroyed, the laser trap will be disarmed and Snake 
will be free to go. Whoopee! Go through the door past the now-harmless trap.

Ignore the voice over the loudspeaker and move along. You can find a Ration

your Thermal Goggles during this area so you can spot enemies from far away. 
They wear them too, so make sure to spot them before you're spotted yourself. 
I suggest using your M9 to tranq the enemies, since your USP has a built-in 
flashlight that can give away your position.

Continue down the hallway, collecting the USP Ammo along the way. I don't 
know why, but the ammo box in the corner of the hallway kept regenerating. 
I'm not complaining, since, you know, unlimited ammo is cool. Continue east

little more, a cutscene will begin. Snake will be ambushed by a group of 
guards. Uh oh.

This is a shootout. None of that fancy "breaking necks and tranquilizing 
guards" stuff. This is an all-out battle. Hide behind the box in front of you 
and peek out of the sides in order to shoot at the guards. They will do the 
same, so think of it like the fight with Olga... except with more targets. 

Peek out from the top and side of the box to shoot at the soldiers. Watch out 
for the guard in the back; he will throw grenades at you. Run away from your 
location to avoid the blast. You can also find a Ration, USP Ammo, and M9 
Ammo behind you if you ever get low on supplies. The battle will come to a 
close when three soldiers run towards you. Jump out from the confines of the 
box and blast them to end the battle.

Otacon reminds Snake of his mission: he must take pictures of Metal Gear RAY. 
He only has seven minutes to do so. On top of that, you cannot be spotted in 
the next three areas. If you are, say hello to the fancy "Game Over" screen.

Climb down the ladder in front of you and do the same with the next one to 
reach the floor. As you can see, you are in a room with a crapload of 
marines. However, they are all glued to the screen and shouldn't be a 
problem. Walk to the left and crawl under the projector. If you walk into it, 
your shadow will block the projection and you'll be automatically caught. You 
can actually turn off the projector as well. It's funny, but not recommending 
considering you will get a game over by doing so.

Walk north across the metal grating. Sneak past the marine and continue 
north. You will want to either roll over the metal grating or walk across. If 
you run, Snake will make too much noise and attract unwanted attention. Go 
through the sliding door to the next hold.

This hold is a bit trickier. As the scene implies, there are two projectors 
this time. Only one will be on at a time. One projector aims at the left side 
of the hold while the other one is towards the right side. So if the left 
projector is on, the marines will be facing to the left. If not, then they 
will face to the right. The lights will turn off for a couple seconds before 
the next projector turns on, so you will be given some time to get out of the 
open. 

First, crawl under the two projectors to the eastern end of the hold. Wait 
for the projector on the left to turn on. Once the marines have their backs 
turned to you, make your move. Roll over the metal gratings and run the rest 
of the way to the north end of the room. Go around the boxes and through the 
door.

Metal Gear RAY is here, so you will have to take some photos here. You will 
have to take four photographs of Metal Gear: a front view, a view from the 
right, a view from the left, and a shot of the Marines' logo on the 
prototype. When you first enter the room, whip out your camera and take a 
shot of Metal Gear RAY to get a shot from the right. You will know if you 
have taken a good picture if Snake says something uplifting, like "way to 
go!" or "all right!". Yay for self-motivation.

You will have to get on the left side of the room for the other shots. Walk 
behind the marines while the instructor is giving his speech. While back 
here, snap a photo of Metal Gear RAY to get a frontal view. Make sure to 
quickly get to the other side. If the instructor stops his speech, he will 
say something along the lines of "alright, take a break". The good news is 
that the timer will stop. However, the marines will turn in all different 
directions and talk to each other, making you an easy target.

Once on the left side, stand next to the camera man and take another picture 
of Metal Gear RAY. Only one more picture left. Sneak past the marine on the 
side and go north to reach a dead end. Look up and search on Metal Gear RAY; 
you should spot the word "MARINES" in giant white print. Take a picture of 
the word to get the final picture. 

Return to the crowd and sneak past them again to the right side of the room. 
Near the entrance of the area is a computer. Press Triangle to log on and 
email the pictures to Otacon. He will approve of the pictures. If he rejects 
one of the pictures, simply take a better photo afterwards. After Otacon 
accepts all four pictures, the mission will end. 

A very long and important cutscene starts, so watch it all for some action, 
drama, and all that good stuff. I'll include a small, spoilerific summary of 
what happens. Ocelot arrives. Ocelot defects to The Patriots. Ocelot kills 
Colonal Gurlokovich and General Dolph, the marines commander that was making 
the speech. Ocelot is possessed by Liquid Snake. Ocelot hijacks Metal Gear 
RAY. Ocelot destroys the tanker. Ocelot escapes while the tanker floods and 
Snake is left on his own. Got all that? I didn't think so.

==============================================================================

A lot of stuff goes down inbetween the closing cutscene and the start of this 
mission. Two years have passed, and Snake is nowhere to be found. You now 
take the role of Raiden, the newest member of FOXHOUND. He is on his first 
mission. What a newbie.

The creation of the Big Shell is a result of what happened two years ago. The 
destroyed tanker leaked massive amounts of oil, and the Big Shell was created 
in order to help clean up the mess. However, a terrorist organization decided 
to waltz in and kidnap the president, along with many other hostages. It's 
your (Raiden) goal to infiltrate the Big Shell, rescue the hostages, and 
defeat the terrorist organization. I know it's your first mission, but you 
can do it. You damn well better do it! *shakes fist*

   Items: Thermal Goggles, Ration

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

Just a reminder if you have not realized the simplest of concepts: YOU ARE 
NOT PLAYING AS SOLID SNAKE ANYMORE! You are now playing as Raiden, the young 
and inexperienced member of FOXHOUND. Get used to him, since you'll play as 
Raiden for the rest of the game. Whine if you like, but Raiden is pretty 
cool. I mean, he can do teh flipz!! 

From the start, dive into the pool and listen to Colonel Campbell's swimming 
controls. Dive down to the bottom of the pool in search of Thermal Goggles. 
They are hard to spot, but I'm pretty sure they are found in the southeast 
corner of the pool. Don't stay down there too long unless you want to drown. 

Exit the pool and open the lockers at the north end of the room for a Ration. 
Go back down the stairs and to the right. Stomp all over the pesky bugs and 
when you approach the metal gate, lean towards the railing overlooking the 
water. Press Triangle to grab the railing. Shimmy past the metal gate and 
press Triangle again to jump up. Pick up the Shaver and dive into the water. 

Climb back out and walk around the southern perimeter. Once on the east side, 
crawl under the machinery to find another Ration. Return to the lockers and 
open the hatch. I'm sure Colonel Campell has complained about you wasting too 
much time here. 

You will see a scene of a soldier apparently waking up. He then walks to the 
right. Raiden informs Campbell of the Russion intruder -- must be one of 
Gurlokovich's men. Follow him to the next room.

You will approach an elevator room. A scene starts where a bunch of soldiers 
get owned by a strange intruder, then Raiden tells Campbell. You will have to 
use a nerd, err, node in this room. Walk over to the computer in the northern 
corner and press Triangle. 

You can input your information here. Have fun making up wacky information 
about yourself. My name was ":D" and I am from Mongolia. Also, my birthday is 
January 1, 2100 and my blood type is O. Haha. Along with that, you have 
uploaded a map of the Big Shell and can alter other in-game options. A small 
note about nodes: they are in nearly every room. You mus access a node and 
download the map of the room in order for your radar to appear. So if you 
want to use radars here in the Big Shell, then find nodes.

The enemy guards will start to wake up after their assault from the unknown 
intruder. Run in the alcove behind the barrels. When the guards wake up and 
patrol the area, simply wait there until the elevator to come down. When it 
arrives, quickly dash behind the soldiers and enter the elevator. Raiden 
doesn't have the fancy techniques Snake had, so don't go trying to break any 
necks here. Just avoid the soldiers and head to the elevator.

You are now on the roof of Strut A. Here's a basic layout of the Big Shell, 
if you couldn't tell from the map. They are basically two hexagons connected 
end to end. Each edge of the hexagon are Struts (going from Strut A to Strut 
L), and they are all connected by bridges. In the center of each hexagon are 
Shells. There are only two (duh): Shell 1 and Shell 2. Right now you are on 
Strut A. Mmkay?

Jump up on the boxes next to you for some Bandages. Avoid the bird crap on 
the edges of the area. If you run, you will slip and fall on them. If you do, 
make sure to phone Colonel Campbell for useless fun. Walk over to the caged 
area on the left and get on your stomach. Crawl through the openeing on the 
left side to get a call from Campbell. After, go through the door.

Either way, get across the bridge to Strut F. It's easiest to go down the

Prepare for a cutscene that can be described as nothing short of awesome. You 
are introduced to Vamp, the first member of Dead Cell and one of the 
terrorists that is behind all of this chaos. He is also one of the most 
badass characters in the series. Anyways, you are saved from Vamp by a 
seemingly normal soldier that bears a striking resemblance to a certain 
character. His name is Pliskin, who also knows a lot about FOXHOUND and the 
VR training programs that Raiden went through. Funny that we meet someone 
that is more than meets the eye in the TRANSFORMER room. Get it? GET IT??

Anyways, Pliskin gives you his cigarettes and his SOCOM. He also gives Raiden 
his frequency: 141.80. After Raiden goes on without Pliskin, grab the SOCOM 
Ammo nearby and download the radar from the node. Open the lockers for a 
Ration and more SOCOM Ammo. There is also some M9 Ammo on a catwalk. Finally, 
go through the sliding door in the north end. Save your game when Rose calls. 
Open the lockers for a Ration and more SOCOM Ammo, then proceed through the

Enter the first door in front of you into the men's bathroom. Open the stall 
on the left for SOCOM Ammo. Why anyone would leave gun ammunition in a 
bathroom stall is beyond me. It's also fun doing stuff while looking at your 
reflection in the mirror. Now it's time to be a rebel. We're going into the 
woman's bathroom!

Head inside and open the stalls to find Bandages and M9 Ammo. Exit the 
restroom and proceed down the hall to trigger another cutscene. Raiden and 
Pliskin will meet up with a man named Peter Stillman. He is an old cripple 
that used to be a bomb diffusor. He is here to stop Fatman, another member of 
the Dead Cell. Fatman was a student of Stillman; he taught Fatman everything 
he knew about bombs. 

However, Fatman is evil now, and he's using his knowledge for chaos and 
corruption. Stillman asks for Pliskin and Raiden's help in diffusing the many 
C4 explosives throughout the Big Shell. He gives you the Coolant Spray and 
Sensor A. the sensor can be used to find the bombs on your radar. When you 
find a bomb, use the Coolant Spray to freeze the bomb. You can't disarm it, 
but this is the next best thing. You also receive the Lvl 1 Card, which can 
open doors marked "Level 1". Time for a scavenger hunt.

First, let me make a note: always keep the Sensor A equipped. This little 
gadget is the only way to find C4 bombs. When you gain control, log onto the 
node to the left and download the map. Head back to the woman's bathroom and 
walk towards the mirrors. See all that green junk on the radar? That means a 
C4 bomb is nearby. Look up in the corner to find the C4 bomb on the wall. 
Take out your Coolant Spray and hold down Square to spray the bomb. 

Once the bomb is frozen, Raiden will contact Stillman. The old man states that
the bomb's location is not like Fatman's normal routine. Oh well, there's
still a lot more bombs to find. Time to go backtracking! You can disarm the 
C4 bombs in any order, but I will list them in the set I'm most comfortable
with. Feel free to go rogue and take care of them any order you wish. I won't

By the way, now you can collect the SOCOM Ammo at the west end of the room. 
Immobilize the guard in the cubicle and go to the right side of the room. You 
can now enter the pump room through the southeast door. A guard is making his 
patrol to the right. Hide just around the corner and tranq him before he 
calls for backup. This is the only other guard, so take him out and you're 
good to go. Well, there is a camera, so shoot that out too.

Grab the SOCOM Ammo under the security camera and go south. Climb over the 
stairs and crawl under the pipe to the right. Once on the other side, leap 
over the ledge to find Box 1. 

Now head to the southeast end of the pump room. Crawl under the first two 
pipes to reach a fork. Make your way to the left side to find a Ration. 
Return to the fork and spot the brown pipe leading south. Crawl under the 
pipe and go south; parallel to the pipe. You will reach a small alcove, 
wherer another bomb is positioned. 

Deactivate it and Stillman will call you. He says that all the bomb's 
locations are placed in amateur locations; something Fatman wouldn't do. Trap 
or not, we still have no choice but to deactivate the others. Head to the FA

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

Lotta stuff here. Yay. Unfortunately, this area is tough considering the fact 
that there are a lot of enemies here yet we haven't accessed the node yet. 
From the start, tranq the guard in the hallway nearby and stowe his body in 
the empty room south of here. You can also find a Ration cleverly hidden 
behind the boxes just outside of the room.

Tranquilize the guard patrolling the hallway to the right. Hide his body as 
well, then run north. Some guards will probably get sent into the area 
because a status report hasn't been sent. Run to the railing in the northeast 
corner and drop down to the lower floor. Hide here in the staircase and the 
guards will leave after everything looks normal. Now all you need to do is 
immobilize the guard patrolling the area downstairs. There are many boxes to 
hide behind.

The box in the southwest corner can be easily accessed by standing on top of 
it. Grab the SOCOM Ammo on top and drop down. Collect the Stun Grenade near 
the middle of the floor and continue down the southern hall. At the end is a 
Chaff Grenade. Enter the room on the left to find Box 2. Also open the 
lockers for a Ration and Pentazemin, then download the radar from the node. 
There is a small air duct in the southern end of the locker room. Crawl 
through to reach an alcove holding a SOCOM Supressor and SOCOM Ammo. Equip 
the supressor so your shots will be silenced. 

Return to the locker room and leave. Next, enter the room on the right. Grab 
the Mine Detector and crawl under the shelf for M9 Ammo. Return to the second 
floor. In order to get the two Books on the high boxes, you'll have to crawl 
onto the railing and drop down. Now it's time to disarm the bomb... finally.

Go up to the second floor and dangle off of the railing to the left. Drop 
down onto a high stack of boxes. Look down and you should see the C4 attached 
to the wall. Use the Coolant Spray on it, then go up the stairs in the 
northeast corner. Head through the door here to the next bridge.

the conveyor belts. You can shoot him from behind the tranquilizer; that's 
what I did. Kill him with the silent SOCOM and walk north. You will find Box 
5 on top of a platform and Stun Grenades under a conveyor belt nearby. Take 
out the guard after he makes his status report, then log onto the node in the 
far right corner. After you have the map, go up the stairs in the eastern 
wing to reach the heliport.

You'll trigger a cutscene of Raiden confronting Olga, who doesn't look as 
manly this time. She escapes, but that doesn't matter now. Go around the 
walkway after the scene to find a sleeping guard and some Claymores. Head up 
the stairs where Olga was to reach the heliport.

Box 3 and a Stun Grenade are to the left of the stairs. Watch out for the two 
guards up here. The heliport is fairly large, so sneaking up behind them is a 
cinch. Go north towards the jet and crawl under. You can tell by all the 
green stuff that there is a bomb nearby. Crawl under the right wing of the 
jet and you should spot the C4 latched onto the wheel. 

Freeze it and Raiden will contact Stillman. He confesses that he can walk 
just fine; he lied about having a fake leg. He was so ashamed about what 
happened years ago, that he wanted to hide from the past. Stillman decided to 
go to Shell 2 in order to disarm another bomb. Blah blah blah, I don't care. 
Just finish the conversation and leave.

The node is right next to the entrance, so download the contents. This area 
is pretty tough even with the radar, since there are several soldiers and no 
real hiding places. The guard on the lower floor gives status reports, so 
refrain from knocking him out. From the entrance, look up and knock out the 
two guards on the top floor. 

Wait for the guard on the bottom level to have his back turned, then run down 
the catwalk and up the stairs to the top floor. Run to the guard in the 
circular part of the room (the center) and drag his body north towards the 
staircase you just came up. See that white gate to the right? You can dump 
the bodies into the water below there, so do so with this guard. Make sure 
not to do it when the guard is right below you. 

Do the same with the second guard on this floor, so that the only guard left 
is the one on the bottom floor doing the status reports. Collect the Ration 
in the middle of the top floor. You can find SOCOM Ammo on the left side of 
the area and M9 Ammo under the staircase leading to the bottom floor. 

Now we have to deactivate the bomb. The bomb is cleverly hidden -- it's 
clearly on the left side of the room. It is on the bottom floor, but not in 
plain sight. You must be quick. Take out the guard on the bottom floor and 
run to the left side of the room. Press Triangle while standing next to the 
black hatch on the ground to open it, revealing the C4. Disable it, then run 
back upstairs and enter the area to the left; all before reinforcements come.

Raiden gets a call from Stillman. He says that Fatman has one-upped him, and 
Stillman is trapped with a bomb. He warns Pliskin to get away from Strut H 
and reassures Raiden. His influencial words are cut off by a giant explosion. 
Well, see you later Stillman. Eh, I guess not actually -- he's DEAD!

There are some goodies in the elevator room. If you have time, grab the 
Ration and SOCOM Ammo. You should have plenty of time, but sprint your heart 
out if not. Return to the pool where the mission first started and walk to 
the southern end of the water. Equip Sensor B and it'll start beeping near 
the hanging submarine. Crouch down to find the final C4 underneath the 
submarine. Spray it with your Cooling Spray to deactivate the final bomb.

Colonel Cambell says that the explosion moments ago flooded Shell 2, but he 
still has to save the president and the hostages. He calls a little later 
saying that a hostage has been killed, and that another one would die every 
hour. Rescuing the president is a must now.

Return to the elevator room to start a scene. Fortune arrives on the 
elevator, and is once again, depressed. She thinks you were the person who 
killed her father. She realizes that Raiden isn't that person, but decides to 
fight him anyways. Time to cheer her up... with weapons!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Fortune
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a fight that you cannot win. Your only goal is to stay alive. See, 
with Fortune's crazy powers, you cannot hit her with bullets. You have no 
real way of hurting Fortune, so you must avoid her attacks until the elevator 
appears. Luckily there is a lot of cover in this area. The boxes to the left 
are on fire, so avoid them until it ceases. 

Hide behind the boxes as Fortune takes a shot. When the room dims and you 
hear a buzzing sound, take cover before you get pummeled. Make sure not to 
get hit, since one shot from her rail gun can take out over half of your 
health. The crates can withstand a lot of punishment, so you should be fine 
hiding behind the same set of boxes for nearly the whole fight. It would help 
to run back and forth across the room though. 

After the room takes a beating, objects will begin to fall from the ceiling. 
They're just another thing to avoid here, so run away from any falling rocks 
or other junk. Fortune is usally calm with her shots, but sometimes she'll 
lose it and continuously fire for several seconds. Stay on the move to avoid 
the chaotic situation. Eventually, the battle will end with Colonel Campbell 
calls you. Saved by the bell, right? 

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

Fatman has contacted the Colonel and lets him know that another bomb has been 
planted. This time, he wants to meet up with Raiden. Fatman seems to be on 
his own without Dead Cell, so a rogue Fatman is much more dangerous. You have 
to make your way to the heliport to meet up with Fatman, but getting past 
Fortune is more important.

Vamp will come down the elevator and meet up with Fortune. He tells Fortune 
of Fatman's plans. They realize that they have to stop Fatman as well. As the 
two Dead Cell members are talking, Raiden fires a shot at Fortune. It 
deflects off of her and finds its home in Vamp's forehead. Lovely. Raiden 
escapes while Fortune mourns the death of her longtime friend. Well, only for 
a couple seconds: Vamp wakes up. What? You thought a bullet to the head could 
take out someone that awesome? Nah.

                                                     the map well. Fatman will
hide bombs throughout the Heliport, just like he has been doing throughout the
game so far. You will have to battle the big man while disarming the bombs.
Needless to say, knowing this area up and down is very important to winning
the upcoming battle.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Fatman
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fatman will skate around the heliport while placing bombs around. You only 
have around one minute to disarm the bombs before the whole place blows up. 
Make sure to equip Sensor A to help find the C4 bombs. Fatman usually places 
two at a time, so you will have to be quick. It's best to ignore the big guy 
entirely while you take care of the bombs. 

Run around the heliport and disarm the bombs as Fatman skates around. If you 
meet up with him in between the metal boxes, then watch out. A small tip: do
not go head-to-head with Fatman; the big man will always win at a game of
chicken. He'll mow right through you and keep on moving. Most of the bombs are
easy to find. They are usually on the side of the green metal boxes or on the
edge. Fatman will rarely place them on the shelves or crates at the south end
of the area, but plans may change later in the fight.

Sometimes Fatman will follow you around while you chase after the bombs. Just 
to make things more annoying for you, he will pull out a machine gun and 
start shooting at you. This would be a good time to retaliate. Either shoot 
him with your SOCOM or keep the Coolant Spray equipped and knock him down 
with CQC. Fatman gets knocked out often, so a couple shots or kicks will 
leave him unconscious for several seconds. 

Another good way to damage Fatman while searching for the bombs is to plant 
Claymores around the helipads; they best work in between the boxes. Fatman 
weaves through the metal boxes, so him getting hit will be common if you 
place several Claymores around the vicinity. Just make sure not to run into 
them yourself. You can also attack Fatman with your SOCOM if you end up 
running into him (not literally) while searching for the C4 bombs.

After Fatman loses over half of his health, he will begin placing more bombs 
in trickier locations. Sometimes Fatman will place up to four bombs at a
time. You will have to move quick and keep Sensor A equipped. Stay on the
move to take out all of the bombs. He will number the bombs, so you'll know 
how many there are. The timer also states how many as well. 

Another dumb strategy is to try and kill Fatman as quickly as possible without
focusing totally on the bombs. That isn't recommended; the strategy in the
fight with Fatman is to be patient. Keep yourself safe by disarming the C4
bombs and attack Fatman when you get the chance; not the other way around.

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

In his last breath, Fatman activates his final bomb as he wishes to die as a
legend. The bomb will go off in less than 2 minutes. If you have Sensor A
equipped, you'll realise that the bomb is right near Fatman. Pick up his
corpse and drag it to the side, revealing a bomb under him. Deactivate it to
finally end Fatman's reign of terror. Laugh and get fat? I think not.

You will start off at the northern end of the room. A guard south of here 
will walk to the left and right. Sneak down the hall and take him in front of 
the doorway. Go into the room to find some lockers and a couple packs of C4. 
Stuff the guard's body into the locker and grab the C4. Do the same with the 
guard that walks around the perimeter of the area. 

Exit the room and go west. Head to the west wing, where you can find another 
door marked "Level 2". Go inside the room, but stop immediately upon 
entering. See the C4 tucked in the corner? This room is rigged, and your 
Coolant Spray doesn't work. Whip on your Thermal Goggles to spot the lasers. 
Crawl under the lasers to the north end of the room, where you can find an M4 
and some ammo. Also check the locker for more M4 ammo.

By now, guards have most likely gotten worried about the lack of status 
reports and are now heading to your location. It's no sweat now that you can 
enter so many tiny rooms. Just hide in a room and wait for them to leave. 
They will leave if you managed to hide the bodies well. 

Drop down to the second floor (or go down the stairs) and eliminate the lone 
soldier. The northern doors are connected by a large room, so go through 
either door. You can find an AKS-74u along with its corresponding ammo. Make 
sure to also collect the other ammo lying around. Now that you have the AKS-

Immediately upon entering, equip the B.D.U and the AKS-74u to properly 
disguise yourself. Walk up the stairs to reach the main section of the first 
floor. It's crawling with guards, but you should be alright if you act 
normal. And what I mean by that is simple: don't do cartwheels, don't unequip 
your outfit or weapon, don't bump into guards, and don't do anything else 
wacky or idiotic. Simply walk around the area like a normal human being. 

Proceed to the southwest end of the hall to find a doorway; head on in. You 
can find a Chaff Grenade and the node. Downloading the map is a must. Open 
the lockers for M9 Ammo and M4 Ammo. The northern locker is stuck, so you 
will have to use CQC to break the door down. Make sure to do it when no one 
is around. If the locker door hits you, Raiden will lose his suit, so 
immediately equip it again. Open the lockers at the south end of the room for 
a Claymore, Book, and C4. 

Exit the room to the left and head down the west wing. The door down here is 
locked, but you can find some SOCOM Ammo. Remember not to bump into any 
soldiers, since you will lose your suit and immediately become spotted. If 
you do, hide in the locker room and either put your disguise back on or hide 
in one of the many lockers.

Continue to the northern end of the area and press Triangle next to the 
elevator. The security camera will check you. If you have the B.D.U and the

Before entering the main computer room, head to the eastern hallway. Open the 
lockers on this side to obtain some M9 Ammo. Go north to find a Ration tucked 
away in a small alcove.

Now return to the main computer room. Remember to keep your cool, since there 
are three soldiers in here. One of them just goes from computer to computer, 
looking at pornography. I think he's too distracted to be some sort of 
threat. Avoid the guards and enter the small cubicle in the northeast end to 
find Box 4 and AKS-74u Ammo. Also access the node to get the map. 

Walk in between the pair of guards to find the Directional Microphone in the 
northwest corner, lying plain in sight. There is a Bandage under the 
computers in the middle, but I would ignore it if I were you. Apparently the 
guards think crawling around on the ground is strange, and you will get 
caught.

You'll witness a scene of a guard using a retinal scan to access the next 
area. Well we obviously cannot do that, so we will have to find a guard 
willing enough to help us out. First off, enter the small storage room to the 
right and download the map from the node. Search the lockers to find a Ration.

One guard will patrol the hallway and the break room; the other two are on 
their break and won't do a damn thing. One just stares at the vending machine 
like a buffoon. I suggest killing the active guard and stuffing him in the 
locker in the break room. Also collect the Stun Grenade and the SOCOM Ammo 
from there as well. We have to use one of the guards to access the retinal 
scan, so at least one soldier must be alive. Here's how I did it:

Enter the break room and start punching one of the lockers. The closest guard 
will go to investigate. Once he stares at the locker long enough, shoot him 
with your M9 or SOCOM. I suggest M9, because if you mess up with the other 
guard, then you always have a backup. Either way, stowe him in a locker with 
his dead buddy. 

Now there should be only one guard left. He is staring at the big FHM poster 
on the wall, so he's an easy target. Sneak up behind him and press Square to 
get a hold of him. Drag him out of the break room. If he starts to struggle, 
press Square to show him who is the boss. Drag him all the way to the retinal 
scan, and Raiden will use him to open the door.

The colonel will phone you some tips to find Ames. First off, you have to use 
the Directional Microphone to find out which one is Ames; he has a pacemaker. 
Second, press Triangle to interact with the hostage if you think it's him. 
Only press Triangle if you're sure it's Ames. If it is the wrong hostage, the 
lone guard in this room will get suspicious. Quickly switch back to your AKS-
74u if that happens. If you blow it in here, then it's game over. 

Run around the room to find a Bandage in the southwest corner and a Ration in 
the southeast corner. Now it's time to search for Ames. You will have to use 
the Directional Microphone on the hostages, but make sure to do it when the 
guard is far away. If he sees you with a giant microphone in front of a 
hostage, then he will obviously get suspicious. If this happens, equip your 
disguise and he will question you. You should be fine if you act normal.

If you want to skip the hard work and find out where Ames is, then I guess 
I'll tell you. That is my job I guess. First off, I will let you know that 
the Directional Microphone will emit a beeping noise instead of a normal 
heartbeat; that should help you when finding him. 

If you want to know where Ames is, then fine: Ames is in the southwest corner.
He should be in a blue suit and lying on the south end of a table covered in
boxes. Double check by using the Directional Microphone. When you find Ames,
press Triangle with the Directional Microphone still equipped to start a long
cutscene. 

You'll learn a lot of stuff during this scene. He states that the president 
is in the core of Shell 2. To sum things up, the president must stay alive in 
order to activate the new Metal Gear. Ames also says that the Big Shell 
wasn't built in order to help clean up the oil spill; all of that was 
planned. In fact, the Big Shell was built to hide the new Metal Gear. 

Raiden spies on a conversation of Ocelot and "Snake". They talk about Fatman's
death and a "man in a sneaking suit". They are sealing the path leading from
Shell 1 to Shell 2. It's a pretty crazy conversation, so a lot of stuff will
be too early to understand. Olga will enter the scene and talk smack, then
Liquid will try possessing Ocelot again. It's all crazy to understand. Is that
man really Solid Snake? Or are there two Solid Snakes?

Raiden starts talking with Ames again. He talks about the bad guys' plans and 
the "Sons of Liberty". Raiden takes the Lvl. 3 Card from Ames. After the 
conversation, Ocelot will walk into the hostage room. You have ten seconds to 
equip your AKS-74u. Simply equip the gun and refrain from moving to start 
another scene. Blah, blah, blah, stuff happens. Oh yeah, and Colonel Ames 
dies. Raiden gets caught, but Mr. X saves the day!

An announcement will order all guards to stay on high alert. You don't have 
your mask, so the suit won't do you any good. You can switch back to your 
slick uniform. You'll have to take out the soldier the old-fashioned way, so 
get moving with your tranquilizing and all that garbage. Take out the guard 
in the hall, then lure one of the guards out of the break room to immobilize 
him. After that, take out the final one inside the break room. After the 
coast is clear, enter the elevator and return to the first floor.

This room can be pretty tricky, so you will have to be extra careful. First 
off, use your SOCOM to destroy the security camera upon exiting the elevator. 
Wait for the guard patrolling to start walking south, then enter the hall and 
shoot him. You can also take out the guard at the far end of the hall. 
Destroy the camera above, then head to the east wing. Destroy the security 
camera here as well, then quickly exit the core.

You should know the layout to this place, so I shouldn't have to tell you how 
to dispatch of the guards. Once the coast is clear, find any Level 3 doors. 
The first one is not too far from the entrance. Go south, then to the left to 
find it. Head inside to find the RGB6 and some ammo for it. This is a grenade 
launcher, so much fun can ensue from this baby.

Next, go down the east wing and enter the room for a PSG1 and some ammo for 
it. This is a sniper rifle; just what we need to get the mission done here. 
Look to the right of where you found the weapon to spot a crawlspace. Crawl 
through to find a PSG1-T at the end. This is a sniper rifle, but it fires 
tranquilizers instead of bullets. 

Exit the room and go south. Enter the small room on the left for some 
Claymores, Grenades, and SOCOM Ammo. Open the locker for some PSG1-T Ammo as 
well. That's all we can get for now, so return to the EF Connecting Bridge.

           |   _______   |  Alright, the first one is destroyed, but lets take

           |  4      ____|  Look at the first control box you destroyed on the
           |________|       big yellow pillar thing. Kay? Now aim to the left
              START         and you should see the next control box on the
                            ground. Zoom in and fire at the green light.

Now for the sixth and seventh control boxes. Point your rifle towards the 
doorway to Shell 2, which is easily distinguished by the large white "SHELL 2"
next to it. Look to the left to find a control box surrounded by explosives.
Fire at the control box, then look to the right of the doorway to find a
similar explosive setup. The control box is in the center of a ring of
explosives. Be careful and fire away. Remember that you can use Pentazemin to
calm yourself.

The next control box is behind the flag to the left of the doorway leading to 
Shell 2. Walk to the right side of the balcony and you should see the very 
tip of the control box behind the flag when it flaps around. Simply shoot 
through the flag to hit the box. 

The ninth control box is in another hard-to-find location. Use R1 to enter 
first-person view and look to the right. Look under the seventh control box 
(the one in the middle of the circular set of explosives) to find a small 
flock of birds resting on a ledge. Zoom in onto that area with your sniper 
rifle to spot a control box behind the birds. Shoot once to scare the birds 
away, then fire to destroy the ninth control box. 

The final control box is the trickiest of them all. Look above Shell 2 to 
find a Cypher floating around. If you zoom in at the bot, you'll notice a 
control box mounted above its head! Wait for the Cypher to stop moving, then 
shoot at the control box. That's all ten!

Once all ten are destroyed, you're free to go. Walk across the bridge to get 
a call from Pliskin. He found an escape vehicle and introduces Raiden to 
Otacon. However, things on Pliskin's end isn't working out so well. Raiden is 
introduced to a lot of other things from Colonel Campbell and Rose. Anyways, 
another scene begins.

A helicopter closes in on Raiden's location, but it's Pliskin! Yay! However, 
Raiden spots a mysterious figure. It's that Snake guy! Pliskin thinks 
otherwise. The imposter calls Pliskin "brother" and another interesting 
nickname. From now on, we'll call the bad guy Solidus Snake. Ya know, that's 
what the game says.

Anyways, a fight ensues and other crap happens. Can you say "Vamp with a 
Harrier"? They escape and Pliskin gives Raiden a Stinger. Raiden versus 
Harrier. Who do you think will win?


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Harrier
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First off, pick up the Stinger and Stinger Ammo once the battle begins. The 
Stinger will automatically home on to your target, so simply aim and let the 
missles fly! That's a very good thing, since the Harrier will be hundreds of 
feet away. Simply look for the red blip on the map to spot it. 

Aim at the airplane and wait for a red diamond to appear. When it does, fire 
away and the Stinger should hit its target. As the Harrier makes a successful 
lap around the bridge, it will fly over you. Make sure to avoid the Harrier 
as it flies overhead. Sometimes, the Harrier will fly out of sight; make sure 
to look at the red blip (make sure you're not aiming at Pliskin though!). 
You'll see a streak of light, and the Harrier will race towards you. If you 
manage to lock on, then fire a Stinger missile at it to knock the Harrier off 
its route.

The Harrier's next attack is very obvious. It will fly right above you and 
start to drop missiles onto the bridge. In order to avoid getting rained on, 
run down the stairs and take cover. Once the missiles stop, the Harrier will 
jet away. You can actually manage to get two good hits from this close if you 
have good aim of the Harrier. 

When Solidus Snake says "Go to hell!", then seek shelter immediately. Either 
hide behind one of the orange pillars on the top floor or go downstairs. The 
Harrier will fire its machine gun, and staying out in the open is suicide. 
Pliskin will help out by attacking the Harrier during this time. 

The Harrier can also float beside the bridge and shoot volleys of missiles. 
Run below to avoid the attack. When the missiles stop, the Harrier will float 
there for several seconds. This is your cue to fire around two missiles at 
the plane.

The Harrier's final attack is devastating. The Harrier will fly away and a 
small scene will show. It will release three powerful missiles that break 
apart. They will fly towards your location. You can actually lock onto all 
three with your Stinger. If you manage to destroy all three before they come 
in contact with the bridge, then you will be fine. 

If not, then run the hell down to the lower level. The bombs will hit the 
bridge and even destroy it partially. If you are caught in the hit, then 
Raiden will lose over half of his health and will be caught on fire. Repeated 
cartwheels will put out the fire, but use two Rations to heal up before the 
next attack on the Harrier.

Of course, Pliskin isn't dead weight. He will occasionally tell Raiden that 
he'll handle the Harrier and attack for you. Aside from that, Pliskin will 
drop Rations and Stinger ammo down onto the bridge. If you accidentally 
destroy Pliskin's helicopter, then no more aid for you!

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

Once the battle ends, the Harrier will crash and fall into the water below. 
However, it gets caught by... Metal Gear RAY! Oh crap. Well, at least Solidus 
Snake lost his eye. Solidus got served! Vamp retreats by running on water. 
Ehh, I won't even bother making any obvious referances. Anyways, Metal Gear 
RAY and Solidus escape, but the connecting bridge and totally destroyed.

Oh yeah, and Raiden finally finds out that Pliskin is the real Solid Snake. 
Gosh, I would have never guessed. After the long conversation, it's time to 
get moving. Lets roll!

Walk towards the nearby fire to get a text message from Mr. X. Raiden is 
soooo hip! Answer your Cell Phone and it'll tell you to use Coolant Spray in 
order to extinguish fires. Try it out with the fire right there, then run 
down the stairs and grab the Ration. Hurry back up before the bridge falls. 
Next, walk towards the small ledge. Perform a running cartwheel over the gap 
to the ledge. Pick up the PSG1 Ammo and go north. Put out the fire here and 
grab the AKS-74u Suppressor. 

Next, cartwheel over the yellow pipe to the ledge and continue across. The 
brown platforms will fall from under you, so hurry across to reach a dead 
end. Drop down onto the railing and carefully drop down onto the catwalk 
below. As soon as you drop down, three guards will begin to patrol the bridge 
above. Snipe all three, then run down the walkway. Jump over the first gap, 
then shimmy across the railing once you reach the second gap. Climb the 
ladder to the next area.

The catwalk is monitored by some guards through the windows. You can either 
sneak past the two or tranquilize both. Either way, avoid them unless you 
want to deal with a squad of Cyphers. Cross past the windows to reach a 
narrow ledge. Shimmy across until you reach a large vent, then crouch and 
continue across. 

Walk under the guard that decides it's a good time to take a leak over a 
balcony. Unfortunately, he does it right above you. Avoid the long stream of 
pee and walk to another dead end. Drop down onto the walkway below and pick 
up the AKS-74u Ammo, then continue across. Walk to the far end for a Ration, 
then return to the stairs and slowly ascend to reach an area filled with
Cyphers.

Run north to a dead end and pick up the Chaff Grenade and AKS-74u Ammo. At 
the opposite end of the catwalk is some SOCOM Ammo. Destroy the Cyphers with 
your M4 to make the area a lot safer, then go across the ruined bridge. Drop 
down over the railing and shimmy over the gap, then enter the door.

with your SOCOM and collect the Nikita Ammo. 

Head down the stairs and hop onto the box where the SOCOM Ammo was. There is 
a ventiliation shaft in front of you, so fire a Nikita missile into it. The 
missile travels slowly, so guiding it through the vent should be cake. When 
you reach the president's room, aim for the blue circuit panel - NOT the 
president himself.

Once they are destroyed, the electric floor will be no more. Head north of 
the Shell 2 entrance and across the deactivated floor to meet up with the 
president. After the introduction and subsequent crotch-grabbing, the 
president will inform Raiden that he worked for the Patriots before his 
betrayal. You'll learn a lot of stuff about the Patriots and all other stuff; 
it's super complicated.

Anyways, Raiden is given a new task: find Emma Emmerich, the last remaining 
programmer for the new Metal Gear (Arsenal Gear). Raiden receives the Lvl. 4 
Pan Card and the MO Disk from the president, then eventually Ocelot comes and 
kills the president. Head back down to the basement.

                 room, and that there is a new weapon in Arsenal Gear: a
purified hydrogen bomb. Well, lets deal with this guy first, shall we? Ahh,
this moment of battling Vamp has finally come, and it's a good one.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Vamp
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The arena has a very basic layout; there is a square-shaped walkway with a 
large pool of water in the center. The water is basically like a vaccum: once 
you fall in, you sink like a rock. Lets put it this way: if you fall into the 
water, then you automatically die. Of course, Vamp can swim around in the 
stuff like a fish, but then again, he's badass. I guess badass people can do 
those type of things.

As soon as the battle starts, fire a few rounds of your M4 to hit Vamp. He 
will then glow red and sink into the water. After a few seconds, Vamp will 
leap onto the square-shaped ledge above you. He will begin by throwing a 
knife at you. Avoid the knife; it looks like a sparkle of light. When you see 
Vamp glow red, he will spin across the railing; throwing several knives at 
you. Cartwheel out of the way and fire when you get the chance.

Vamp will end up jumping back into the water. When he emerges this time, he 
will jump onto the playing field. Vamp is a master at close-hand combat, so 
don't try to outbox him. Fire away with your M4 or RGB6. If he gets too 
close, he will swipe at you with incredible speed. 

When the fight with Vamp winds down, he will begin to stay underwater longer. 
This gives you more time to collect the various weapon ammo and Ration around 
the room. His attacks deal a lot of damage, so make sure to avoid his knives. 
You can shoot them away with your gun, but that is a lot riskier. 

Vamp's final attack is interesting. He will throw a knife at your SHADOW, and 
you will be pinned to the ground. Once this happens, he will run up and 
attack you. Simply shoot the knife off of the shadow to move around again. 
Alternatively, shoot out the lights to avoid every casting a shadow.

The battle with Vamp is very tricky. You should be alright if you have a full 
stock of Rations and if you move around a lot. Dodge his knives when he is on 
the balcony above you and make sure to run away when Vamp is pursuing you. 

When Vamp is on the balcony, use your M4 or AKS-74u to attack him. If Vamp is 
on the platform along with you, use your RGB6. Stand in one of the four 
corners and wait for Vamp to jump out of the water. As he momentarily catches 
his breath, hit him with a grenade to damage him and knock him back into the 
water. It's a tough fight, but you should be able to win.

 Keenan H. - Additional Strategy
 "To start, shoot the lights so there's no possibility for his shadow binding
 trick, ignore him at first. He will go underwater and then come up and start
 throwing the glowing knives, just keep dodging them until he goes back
 underwater. Once he's underwater that time he will stay long enough for you
 to launch two grenades from the RGB6 down there, the grenades will explode
 and drain his O2 meter to nothing.

 Then stand at the spot where it's easy to fall in and point your RGB6 at the
 other side, he will come up parallel to you giving you a chance to shoot him
 with the RGB6, he will then go back underwater again and come back up almost
 immediately to start throwing those knives again. Dodge his attacks and when
 he goes underwater AFTER throwing his knives, repeat the process all over
 again.

 When his health is low he won't go underwater, just whip out your M4 and try
 to find where he is standing, if he's standing on the upper area just dodge
 his attacks some more, but when he is in the same level as you try to shoot
 the M4 where he is standing, just hit him a couple of times and you win! I
 hardly lost any health in the fight, but it took me an hour to figure out
 this way to do it."

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

Vamp will emit a battle cry and sink into his watery grave. It looks like 
Vamp is finally gone for good. Still, Arsenal Gear is active, and we don't 
have time for chit-chat. Enter the room north of the entrance.

back and swim up the stairs to reach the locker room. Pick up the Pentazemin
off of the ground. Open the lockers on the left for a Book and some C4.

Emma is hiding in the he northern locker. After the long talk, the scaredy 
cat will finally go with you. Time for more swimming. Emma can hold a lot 
less air then you, so you'll have to make several pit stops before exiting 
the chamber.

There is a scene learning about Emma and Otacon's past. After the scene, it's 
time to drag Emma around. Press Triangle to hold her hand and drag her 
around. You can also trap her in a chokehold with Square and drag her around. 
Avoid the left side of the arena; it's filled with Claymores. Head to the 
southern door for another scene. Remember that annoying bird back in Shell 1? 
Well, that pest was Emma's pet. Figures; they share some similarities.

You'll have to bring Emma through the main Filtration Chamber. This time, 
it's a lot more difficult with the girl, but just make sure to rest at the 
white blips. You should know how to make it out of here. Once you reach the 
elevator, you will be stopped by another "hazard": bugs. Emma hates bugs, so 
just knock her unconscious and drag her body into the elevator. From there, 
head up to the first floor of Shell 2.

   Items: Pentazemin, Ration
 Weapons: SOCOM Ammo, PSG1 Ammo, AKS-74u Ammo, M9 Ammo

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

Things can get tricky here, because we have to avoid enemies with all that 
dead weight on your back. First off, leave Emma in the elevator and take out 
the guard in the break room. Leave his body there, along with Emma. Head down 
the southern hall; the next guard should be patrolling in the west wing. 
Tranq him, pick up the Pentazemin, and leave his body in the store room 
across the hall. Bring Emma into the store room and down the stairs. 

Descending the stairs will trigger a guard's appearance back at the elevator. 
Leave Emma in the store room and kill the guard that appeared. There are two 
guards patrolling below the stairs, so head back there. Kill them both and 
hide their bodies in the corner. If more soldiers come down here, then they 
will most likely end up leaving.

Once the coast is clear, drag Emma down the stairs and up to the other side 
of the area. Leave her behind the boxes and enter the chamber where the 
president was before. You can find a Ration, M9 Ammo, PSG1 Ammo, and AKS-74u 
Ammo. If any more soldiers come, Emma should be safe in her position. When 
the coast is finally clear, bring Emma out of Shell 2.

I used an alternate strategy. After leaving Emma in the store room, go down 
the stairs and kill the two guards patrolling here. The other guards 
stationed in the area will go down the stairs and see the bodies. Kill the 
guard before he phones for help. More guards will get suspicious, so keep 
repeating the process to eliminate all the guards in the area. If you wait 
too long and a guard calls for backup, then you will have to do this with 
more soldiers.

Pick up the Ration, PSG1 Ammo, and Chaff Grenade here. Leave Emma under the 
roof here and head across the bridge. Go across the rebuilt bridge and 
destroy the two Cyphers. Look down the stairs across from the walkway and 
wait for a soldier to come up the stairs towards you. Take him out, then 
descend the stairs. You can find SOCOM Ammo and M4 Ammo here. 

Now that the coast is clear, bring Emma across the repaired bridge. Go south 
to reach a large fire. Put it out with the Cooling Spray, then quickly bring 
Emma through to a doorway. Raiden won't be able to get in, but Emma gives him 
the Lvl. 5 Card. Wow, she actually IS useful.

Walk to the right to find some SOCOM Ammo, then slowly proceed south without 
Emma. Look down the hall to spot a guard. Take him out quietly, then do the 
same with the final guard across the walkway. It's only two guards, so it 
isn't exactly hard. Once both are taken out of the picture, open the hatch 
and bring Emma through. Raiden will open a door in the floor leading down 
into who knows what. Well, time to find out.

Once Raiden and Emma are done climbing down a ladder that rivals "The Ladder" 
(Metal Gear Solid 3 fans will know what's up), then it's time for some more 
sniping. Forget about the sunset; Snake puts it nicely: it's time to play 
sniping. Hehehe...

Emma will have to cross the narrow catwalk while Raiden backs her up by 
sniping the enemies in her way. It's best to keep your Thermal Goggles to 
help spot hazards easier. First off, dispose of the two guards across the 
walkway. Once both of them are taken out, focus on the walkway Emma is on. 
Claymores. Take out the group of Claymores before Emma hits them. Also take 
out the Cypher in the background to the right. Don't worry about ammo; an 
unlimited amount of PSG1 Ammo will appear next to you when you're running low.

If any enemy spots Emma, take them out before any Cyphers appear. They are 
more dangerous than soldiers, so initiate quick headshots to save time. 
Remember to use Pentazemin, but not too much. You only have a max of ten, and 
this is a long trip. 

Snake will help you out when Emma reaches the second walkway. If you ever in 
too deep, call him and he'll help with the sniping. The only thing you need 
to worry about on the second walkway are Cyphers. Take them out when they fly 
around occasionally. Guards are posted at the second oil tower, so snipe them 
before Emma reaches it. 

The third walkway is a bit tougher, just for the fact that it's the farthest 
away. Make sure to take out the Claymores -- it's a lot easier when using 
Pentazemin. Also take out any Cyphers here, since there shouldn't be many 
soldiers after the second walkway.

Once Emma makes it far enough, a certain someone takes Emma hostage. I 
wouldn't say this is a boss battle, but you must take out Vamp before he 
strangeles Emma to death. Pop one last Pentazemin and quickly shoot Vamp in 
the head four times to end the "battle".

Vamp will fall into the water again, yet Emma appears to be hit. Snake goes 
to get her; apparently Emma was stabbed badly. Now you have to reach Snake 
and Emma before Emma dies of blood loss.

There are no guards here, so running through isn't a problem. Run north 
through the obnoxiously large pile of bugs, then enter the elevator to 
trigger a cutscene. Snake pops in the disc, which should insert the virus. 
However, nothing is ever easy in the game. The virus didn't upload, so we are 
out of luck. So, Emma dies a tearful death, and the virus was no good. Damn, 
Vamp is causing us more problems than I realized! But then we realize more 
gross stuff about the Emmerich family. 

An announcement blares over the speaker that Arsenal is ready to launch. 
Otacon is assigned to take care of the hostages, and the Raiden/Snake team is 
going to destroy Arsenal Gear and take out Solidus Snake for good. The ninja 
appears, and reveals himself as a... her? Mr. X was really Olga Gurlokovich, 
and the ninja totally owns Raiden without Snake doing a thing! Okaaaaaaay, 
this is weird. Save the game, even though Raiden cannot respond.

Raiden wakes up in a torture chamber with Ocelot and Solidus. Hit Triangle 
repeatedly when Solidus shoves his metal tentacles down your esophagus. Yet 
Solidus refers to Raiden as his son. Hm? Jack the Ripper? Wow, even more 
weird. It gets complicated.

   Items: Ration, Medicine, Box 5

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

Due to the fact that Raiden is naked, he cannot do much. He cannot hang from 
ledges or perform basic attacks. You cannot flip over enemies or do any of 
that fancy stuff from behind. In fact, don't bother even trying to attack 
enemies. Raiden gets a call from Colonel Campbell, which is fishy to say the 
least. Every once and a while, you'll get weird calls from Campbell. They're 
funny to hear, but annoying at times. 

There is a guard to the right; when he turns his back, cartwheel to the box 
on the right. When he walks back south, speed past him. The second guard is a 
little tricky. He will stand in between a row of boxes. When he looks to the 
left, then run to the box to the right of him and duck down -- he will look 
to the right. When he turns back to the left, run north and you should be 
able to avoid him. Run to the box at the right and walk around to the other 
side; there is a Ration found here.

The third guard will walk around the perimeter of a large box in the center. 
Simply walk around the side opposite of the guard and head to the northwest 
side of the box ahead for some Medicine. Use it immediately; you wouldn't 
want to sneeze and blow your cover, would you? 

South of the Medicine is a stairway, so proceed up the stairs. As you do, 
Campbell and Rose will call and tell Raiden to turn the game off. Needless to 
say, don't. From now on, they'll start calling Raiden; telling him that he's 
been playing too long. What are you guys, my parents? ;>_<

You should now be on the top floor. Head south a little ways and you should 
see a guard along the way. Hide behind the box north of the guard's position 
and wait for him to head down the catwalk. When he does, sprint south past 
the guard and under the camera to reach Box 5. Grab it and equip the box. 

This next part sucks, because I'm pretty sure it's impossible to get past 
without being detected. Return to the camera and the guard north of the box. 
Stand under the camera, then when the guard turns his back, sprint past him 
and go north. Once you reach the staircase leading back down, cross the 
catwalk to the right side of the room and run down the hall. When you enter 
the door to the next area, Alert Mode will stop.

I'm not even going to comment about the area name. Go south to find another 
Ration, and use it if you got too beat up in the previous area. Head north 
down the shaft and continue to ignore the Colonel's many calls. Keep 
answering them; you have nothing else to do since the doors are locked. I 
don't know why, but your radar ends up being replaced by some Japanese girl. 
Gosh, this game is trippin'. 

Eventually, Rose will call you. Answer and listen to the long conversation. 
It looks like Rose is a spy sent by the Patriots, but she fell in love with 
Raiden and things went off track. Still, Rose is a dirty spy! It's like an 
episode of Jerry Springer!

Well, Snake finally arrives and gives Raiden his stuff. Along with it comes a 
present from the Olga: a High Frequency Blade. It's what she was using under 
her Mr. X disguise. Watch the tutorial on how to use this bad boy. After 
training with it a bit, it's time to go. Time to go slice and dice!

end of the hall, you can switch to your High Frequency Blade if you'd like to 
save time. 

Snake will give you Rations if your health is low, so be as reckless as you 
would like. :) When the door opens, Otacon will tell Raiden that Colonel 
Campbell is inside of Arsenal. In fact, that's where the signal is coming

more accessible for the bad guys. Stay in the center and take them out one by 
one. Snake will give you ammo for your weapons and Rations, so you shouldn't 
die here.

Occasionally, a fake "Game Over" screen will appear, stating the infamous
"Fission Mailed" at the top. You haven't lost the game, don't worry. Simply
fight in the small screen in the top corner until it eventually goes away. 

Once the climactic battle ends, Fortune will appear. Damn, I forgot about her.
She's still complaining about how she cannot die. Blah blah. Snake stays

Raiden appears in a strange, tron-like room where Solidus Snake's voice will 
begin talking to you. Pick up the Ration in front of you and listen to his 
rant. It takes quite a while, so just sit around and mess around with your 
new sword or something. After, Solidus will appear with an army of Metal Gear 
RAYs. Oh boy, this will be fun.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Metal Gear RAYs
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You will have to fight a crapload of Metal Gear RAYs, but only three come out 
at a time. With that said, only one can stand on the arena, so the other two 
will wait in the background and fire missiles at you every so often. The 
three work together; one will attack after the other, and it keeps going in 
an endless, deadly cycle. They will either fire a cluster of missiles at you 
or shoot the machine guns on their shoulder. Once one Metal Gear RAY 
finishes, the next will start, leaving you little time to attack.

The only weapon you can use is the Stinger. Use the quick-equip method 
through this fight: press R2 to unequip it, then R2 again to equip it. Doing 
so saves time when getting bombarded by these beastly machines.

The battle changes slightly when one Metal Gear RAY steps onto the platform. 
First off, it will usually start by emitting a laser from its mouth. Avoid 
the laser and counterattack with a Stinger to the face. Also listen for the 
beeping; it will let you know if there are any oncoming missiles from the two 
Metal Gear RAYs surrounding the arena.

The Metal Gear RAY on the arena can also shoot a pair of missiles from its 
knees, but they are slow and easy to dodge. The only other attack it has is 
its massive feet. Don't get too close, or it will step on you. Luckily for 
us, Rations and Stinger ammo appear occasionally. Make sure to pick them up 
if you run out. 

The Metal Gear RAYs have three targets on their body; their two knees and 
their head. You can only damage it by hitting their face, but there is a neat 
trick: hit a Metal Gear RAY in their knee with a Stinger missile and it'll 
open its mouth. Fire a Stinger in its mouth to take out around a quarter of 
its health! This can also be done if you fire a Stinger into a Metal Gear 
RAYs mouth when it is using its mouth laser attack.

There is a pretty large amount of these guys you have to fight. It is all 
about patience and endurance. Don't get too trigger happy, or you'll end up 
dying before you know it. Make sure to constantly move and stock up on ammo 
and Rations around the battlefield as well. It is a long fight, but I'll 
admit, it's pretty fun. Don't fret if it takes you several times. You have to 
defeat five or six Metal Gear RAYs to end the battle.

 Keenan H. - Additional Strategy:
 "I didn't see a mention of Chaff Grenades anywhere. The Chaff Grenades
 prevent the tracking of the missiles that the RAY's launch from their backs,
 not the ones from the legs though, but without Chaff Grenades I would've
 found that fight even harder."

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

Alright, time for my awesome, super short, spoilerific summaries of a good, 
hour long cutscene. Olga appears. She sacrifices her life for Raiden so that 
her child can stay alive. The virus effs up all the Metal Gear RAYs, but 
Solidus destroys them all. Damn. Fortune appears with a bound Snake. Way to 
go champ. Okay, save your game.

Solidus will strangle Raiden again, so repeatedly tap Triangle to avoid 
dying. Turns out that Fortune was going to eventually betray Solidus, but he 
finds out. He was actually going to give Arsenal to Fortune anyways. He was 
using Dead Cell all along. Ocelot appears and finds another way to make 
things complicated. Still, Ocelot does the seemingly impossible: he shoots 
Fortune. 

She never had any special powers; she had an electromagnetic field around 
her. One that now Ocelot controls. He cannot be hit by bullets, so he hijacks 
a Metal Gear RAY. By stroke of luck, Fortune gets up. She somehow deflects an 
onslaught of missiles! Looks like she is Lady Luck, but even luck cannot stop 
everything. Fortune dies and Ocelot prepares to attack, but is possessed by 
Liquid again. Metal Gear RAY jumps into the ocean and Snake follows.

 FEDERAL HALL

   Items: Ration
 Weapons: None

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

Back to Raiden and Solidus. Well, they appear in front of Federal Hall. He 
talks about bogus, boring stuff. Raiden gets a call from "Colonel Campbell"
and "Rose", which makes things even more complicated. Solidus starts talking
again, who reveals that he killed Raiden's parents. Who cares, right? Lets
just fight already! 


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Solidus Snake
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solidus is armed not only with his metal tentacles, but also two deadly High
Frequency Blades. First off, keep your High Frequency Blade sharp (press
Square until the icon is red); this is the only weapon you can use and this
is the only way to fight.

Solidus Snake must have like, a degree in swordfighting or something; he's
insane with a blade. He is capable of blocking nearly any frontal attack, so
don't even bother walking up and slashing him -- you will most likely get a
kick in the gut for your troubles.

Solidus can also attack with his tentacles. When they glow blue and hover in 
front of his body, he will perform one of two attacks: first, the tentacles 
will whip towards you. Block with L1 or just dodge them. If you get hit, then 
press Triangle rapidly to avoid getting choked. 

His second attack is unblockable. Solidus will fire several missiles out of 
his tentacles. This attack is deadly, but leaves him open for attack as well. 
When he begins firing his missiles, quickly run to the side of him and slash 
his back for some easy hits.

Somtimes, Solidus will jump onto the nearby building, then launch himself 
towards you. Cartwheel out of the way, then slash his backside. He also has 
an annoying mode of transportation, which involves him jetting away and 
creating a stream of fire behind him. 

The best time to attack Solidus is when he is using tentacle attacks. You can 
also attack when Solidus rears his two swords back. As he lunges foward, move 
to the side and slash away. You will have to also be careful during this 
fight. You do not have any Rations, so there is no way of healing. Equip the 
Body Armor to reduce damage received. 

After whittling down around half of Solidus Snake's health, he will lose the 
tentacles and beef up. Now the battle will become much more dangerous. 
Solidus will now jet around the arena up to three times, so avoid his zig-zag 
motion. He will follow up with lunge attack, so simply stay away from Solidus 
the whole time. Luckily, Rations start to appear in the corner of the arena. 

The battle isn't that difficult (the previous boss was harder), but there are 
several things to be careful of, like falling off of the building and 
avoiding his attacks. It's more difficult when the tentacles disappear, since 
it becomes a straight-up sword fight. Make sure to block his attacks and 
attack when you see an opening. For example, block Solidus when he kicks you, 
then slice and dice your foe. Stay on your toes and attack when the time is 
ready, and you will eventually come out the victor. 

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

Alright, time for another super-long cutscene. I don't feel like describing 
the ending of the game other than the fact that Solidus Snake is killed after 
the battle, so you're left on your own to find out what happens. Well hey, 
thanks for selecting my guide to help you with your troubles, and I hope that 
it did help you enough. Okay, bye.

...

Wait, how the hell did Raiden fight and kill Solidus with handcuffs on?!

==============================================================================

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Olga Gurlukovich
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Olga will run all over the place during this battle, but you should stay in 
relatively the same spot: the set of boxes in the center of the arena. First 
off, shoot out the spotlight behind Olga. That way it will be harder for her 
to find you. Next, check out the giant tarp on top of the boxes near Olga. If 
you shoot out the ropes on both sides, the tarp will fly off. Now you can 
peer in between the boxes for a clearer shot of Olga.

Olga has three hiding spots. The first is the massive group of boxes in the 
center; you can spot her through the boxes if you shot the tarp off. The
second is the pillar on the left side. Olga will sometimes perform a fancy
cartwheel and stop in the open, leaving you a few shots off without any 
interferance. Make sure to take cover a LOT, since Olga has incredible aim. 
Only peek out when she is reloading (when you don't hear any shots, 
basically). 

Olga also uses grenades in this battle. When you here her shout out something 
along the lines of "take that!", she will toss it at you. The loud rain 
sometimes deters from the noise that it makes, so simply run away from your 
position to avoid the explosion. 

This battle isn't too hard, but you have to make sure not to be too reckless. 
If you need any M9 Ammo, there is some in the middle of the arena. I found it 
easiest to hide behind the double stack of boxes on the right. Hold down R1 
to enter first-person view, then hold down L2 to strafe to the left. Let to 
to move back to your normal position. Use this tactic to peek out from behind 
the box. Peek, shoot, hide. Peek, shoot, hide. Peek, shoot, hid-- okay, I 
think you get the point.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Fortune
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a fight that you cannot win. Your only goal is to stay alive. See, 
with Fortune's crazy powers, you cannot hit her with bullets. You have no 
real way of hurting Fortune, so you must avoid her attacks until the elevator 
appears. Luckily there is a lot of cover in this area. The boxes to the left 
are on fire, so avoid them until it ceases. 

Hide behind the boxes as Fortune takes a shot. When the room dims and you 
hear a buzzing sound, take cover before you get pummeled. Make sure not to 
get hit, since one shot from her rail gun can take out over half of your 
health. The crates can withstand a lot of punishment, so you should be fine 
hiding behind the same set of boxes for nearly the whole fight. It would help 
to run back and forth across the room though. 

After the room takes a beating, objects will begin to fall from the ceiling. 
They're just another thing to avoid here, so run away from any falling rocks 
or other junk. Fortune is usally calm with her shots, but sometimes she'll 
lose it and continuously fire for several seconds. Stay on the move to avoid 
the chaotic situation. Eventually, the battle will end with Colonel Campbell 
calls you. Saved by the bell, right? 


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Fatman
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fatman will skate around the heliport while placing bombs around. You only 
have around one minute to disarm the bombs before the whole place blows up. 
Make sure to equip Sensor A to help find the C4 bombs. Fatman usually places 
two at a time, so you will have to be quick. It's best to ignore the big guy 
entirely while you take care of the bombs. 

Run around the heliport and disarm the bombs as Fatman skates around. If you 
meet up with him in between the metal boxes, then watch out. A small tip: do
not go head-to-head with Fatman; the big man will always win at a game of
chicken. He'll mow right through you and keep on moving. Most of the bombs are
easy to find. They are usually on the side of the green metal boxes or on the
edge. Fatman will rarely place them on the shelves or crates at the south end
of the area, but plans may change later in the fight.

Sometimes Fatman will follow you around while you chase after the bombs. Just 
to make things more annoying for you, he will pull out a machine gun and 
start shooting at you. This would be a good time to retaliate. Either shoot 
him with your SOCOM or keep the Coolant Spray equipped and knock him down 
with CQC. Fatman gets knocked out often, so a couple shots or kicks will 
leave him unconscious for several seconds. 

Another good way to damage Fatman while searching for the bombs is to plant 
Claymores around the helipads; they best work in between the boxes. Fatman 
weaves through the metal boxes, so him getting hit will be common if you 
place several Claymores around the vicinity. Just make sure not to run into 
them yourself. You can also attack Fatman with your SOCOM if you end up 
running into him (not literally) while searching for the C4 bombs.

After Fatman loses over half of his health, he will begin placing more bombs 
in trickier locations. Sometimes Fatman will place up to four bombs at a
time. You will have to move quick and keep Sensor A equipped. Stay on the
move to take out all of the bombs. He will number the bombs, so you'll know 
how many there are. The timer also states how many as well. 

Another dumb strategy is to try and kill Fatman as quickly as possible without
focusing totally on the bombs. That isn't recommended; the strategy in the
fight with Fatman is to be patient. Keep yourself safe by disarming the C4
bombs and attack Fatman when you get the chance; not the other way around.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Harrier
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First off, pick up the Stinger and Stinger Ammo once the battle begins. The 
Stinger will automatically home on to your target, so simply aim and let the 
missles fly! That's a very good thing, since the Harrier will be hundreds of 
feet away. Simply look for the red blip on the map to spot it. 

Aim at the airplane and wait for a red diamond to appear. When it does, fire 
away and the Stinger should hit its target. As the Harrier makes a successful 
lap around the bridge, it will fly over you. Make sure to avoid the Harrier 
as it flies overhead. Sometimes, the Harrier will fly out of sight; make sure 
to look at the red blip (make sure you're not aiming at Pliskin though!). 
You'll see a streak of light, and the Harrier will race towards you. If you 
manage to lock on, then fire a Stinger missile at it to knock the Harrier off 
its route.

The Harrier's next attack is very obvious. It will fly right above you and 
start to drop missiles onto the bridge. In order to avoid getting rained on, 
run down the stairs and take cover. Once the missiles stop, the Harrier will 
jet away. You can actually manage to get two good hits from this close if you 
have good aim of the Harrier. 

When Solidus Snake says "Go to hell!", then seek shelter immediately. Either 
hide behind one of the orange pillars on the top floor or go downstairs. The 
Harrier will fire its machine gun, and staying out in the open is suicide. 
Pliskin will help out by attacking the Harrier during this time. 

The Harrier can also float beside the bridge and shoot volleys of missiles. 
Run below to avoid the attack. When the missiles stop, the Harrier will float 
there for several seconds. This is your cue to fire around two missiles at 
the plane.

The Harrier's final attack is devastating. The Harrier will fly away and a 
small scene will show. It will release three powerful missiles that break 
apart. They will fly towards your location. You can actually lock onto all 
three with your Stinger. If you manage to destroy all three before they come 
in contact with the bridge, then you will be fine. 

If not, then run the hell down to the lower level. The bombs will hit the 
bridge and even destroy it partially. If you are caught in the hit, then 
Raiden will lose over half of his health and will be caught on fire. Repeated 
cartwheels will put out the fire, but use two Rations to heal up before the 
next attack on the Harrier.

Of course, Pliskin isn't dead weight. He will occasionally tell Raiden that 
he'll handle the Harrier and attack for you. Aside from that, Pliskin will 
drop Rations and Stinger ammo down onto the bridge. If you accidentally 
destroy Pliskin's helicopter, then no more aid for you!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Vamp
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The arena has a very basic layout; there is a square-shaped walkway with a 
large pool of water in the center. The water is basically like a vaccum: once 
you fall in, you sink like a rock. Lets put it this way: if you fall into the 
water, then you automatically die. Of course, Vamp can swim around in the 
stuff like a fish, but then again, he's badass. I guess badass people can do 
those type of things.

As soon as the battle starts, fire a few rounds of your M4 to hit Vamp. He 
will then glow red and sink into the water. After a few seconds, Vamp will 
leap onto the square-shaped ledge above you. He will begin by throwing a 
knife at you. Avoid the knife; it looks like a sparkle of light. When you see 
Vamp glow red, he will spin across the railing; throwing several knives at 
you. Cartwheel out of the way and fire when you get the chance.

Vamp will end up jumping back into the water. When he emerges this time, he 
will jump onto the playing field. Vamp is a master at close-hand combat, so 
don't try to outbox him. Fire away with your M4 or RGB6. If he gets too 
close, he will swipe at you with incredible speed. 

When the fight with Vamp winds down, he will begin to stay underwater longer. 
This gives you more time to collect the various weapon ammo and Ration around 
the room. His attacks deal a lot of damage, so make sure to avoid his knives. 
You can shoot them away with your gun, but that is a lot riskier. 

Vamp's final attack is interesting. He will throw a knife at your SHADOW, and 
you will be pinned to the ground. Once this happens, he will run up and 
attack you. Simply shoot the knife off of the shadow to move around again. 
Alternatively, shoot out the lights to avoid every casting a shadow.

The battle with Vamp is very tricky. You should be alright if you have a full
stock of Rations and if you move around a lot. Dodge his knives when he is on
the balcony above you and make sure to run away when Vamp is pursuing you.

When Vamp is on the balcony, use your M4 or AKS-74u to attack him. If Vamp is
on the platform along with you, use your RGB6. Stand in one of the four
corners and wait for Vamp to jump out of the water. As he momentarily catches
his breath, hit him with a grenade to damage him and knock him back into the
water. It's a tough fight, but you should be able to win.

 Keenan H. - Additional Strategy
 "To start, shoot the lights so there's no possibility for his shadow binding
 trick, ignore him at first. He will go underwater and then come up and start
 throwing the glowing knives, just keep dodging them until he goes back
 underwater. Once he's underwater that time he will stay long enough for you
 to launch two grenades from the RGB6 down there, the grenades will explode
 and drain his O2 meter to nothing.

 Then stand at the spot where it's easy to fall in and point your RGB6 at the
 other side, he will come up parallel to you giving you a chance to shoot him
 with the RGB6, he will then go back underwater again and come back up almost
 immediately to start throwing those knives again. Dodge his attacks and when
 he goes underwater AFTER throwing his knives, repeat the process all over
 again.

 When his health is low he won't go underwater, just whip out your M4 and try
 to find where he is standing, if he's standing on the upper area just dodge
 his attacks some more, but when he is in the same level as you try to shoot
 the M4 where he is standing, just hit him a couple of times and you win! I
 hardly lost any health in the fight, but it took me an hour to figure out
 this way to do it." 


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Metal Gear RAYs
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You will have to fight a crapload of Metal Gear RAYs, but only three come out 
at a time. With that said, only one can stand on the arena, so the other two 
will wait in the background and fire missiles at you every so often. The 
three work together; one will attack after the other, and it keeps going in 
an endless, deadly cycle. They will either fire a cluster of missiles at you 
or shoot the machine guns on their shoulder. Once one Metal Gear RAY 
finishes, the next will start, leaving you little time to attack.

The only weapon you can use is the Stinger. Use the quick-equip method 
through this fight: press R2 to unequip it, then R2 again to equip it. Doing 
so saves time when getting bombarded by these beastly machines.

The battle changes slightly when one Metal Gear RAY steps onto the platform. 
First off, it will usually start by emitting a laser from its mouth. Avoid 
the laser and counterattack with a Stinger to the face. Also listen for the 
beeping; it will let you know if there are any oncoming missiles from the two 
Metal Gear RAYs surrounding the arena.

The Metal Gear RAY on the arena can also shoot a pair of missiles from its 
knees, but they are slow and easy to dodge. The only other attack it has is 
its massive feet. Don't get too close, or it will step on you. Luckily for 
us, Rations and Stinger ammo appear occasionally. Make sure to pick them up 
if you run out. 

The Metal Gear RAYs have three targets on their body; their two knees and 
their head. You can only damage it by hitting their face, but there is a neat 
trick: hit a Metal Gear RAY in their knee with a Stinger missile and it'll 
open its mouth. Fire a Stinger in its mouth to take out around a quarter of 
its health! This can also be done if you fire a Stinger into a Metal Gear 
RAYs mouth when it is using its mouth laser attack.

There is a pretty large amount of these guys you have to fight. It is all 
about patience and endurance. Don't get too trigger happy, or you'll end up 
dying before you know it. Make sure to constantly move and stock up on ammo 
and Rations around the battlefield as well. It is a long fight, but I'll 
admit, it's pretty fun. Don't fret if it takes you several times. You have to 
defeat five or six Metal Gear RAYs to end the battle.

 Keenan H. - Additional Strategy:
 "I didn't see a mention of Chaff Grenades anywhere. The Chaff Grenades
 prevent the tracking of the missiles that the RAY's launch from their backs,
 not the ones from the legs though, but without Chaff Grenades I would've
 found that fight even harder."


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Solidus Snake
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solidus is armed not only with his metal tentacles, but also two deadly High
Frequency Blades. First off, keep your High Frequency Blade sharp (press
Square until the icon is red); this is the only weapon you can use and this
is the only way to fight.

Solidus Snake must have like, a degree in swordfighting or something; he's
insane with a blade. He is capable of blocking nearly any frontal attack, so
don't even bother walking up and slashing him -- you will most likely get a
kick in the gut for your troubles.

Solidus can also attack with his tentacles. When they glow blue and hover in 
front of his body, he will perform one of two attacks: first, the tentacles 
will whip towards you. Block with L1 or just dodge them. If you get hit, then 
press Triangle rapidly to avoid getting choked. 

His second attack is unblockable. Solidus will fire several missiles out of 
his tentacles. This attack is deadly, but leaves him open for attack as well. 
When he begins firing his missiles, quickly run to the side of him and slash 
his back for some easy hits.

Somtimes, Solidus will jump onto the nearby building, then launch himself 
towards you. Cartwheel out of the way, then slash his backside. He also has 
an annoying mode of transportation, which involves him jetting away and 
creating a stream of fire behind him. 

The best time to attack Solidus is when he is using tentacle attacks. You can 
also attack when Solidus rears his two swords back. As he lunges foward, move 
to the side and slash away. You will have to also be careful during this 
fight. You do not have any Rations, so there is no way of healing. Equip the 
Body Armor to reduce damage received. 

After whittling down around half of Solidus Snake's health, he will lose the 
tentacles and beef up. Now the battle will become much more dangerous. 
Solidus will now jet around the arena up to three times, so avoid his zig-zag 
motion. He will follow up with lunge attack, so simply stay away from Solidus 
the whole time. Luckily, Rations start to appear in the corner of the arena. 

The battle isn't that difficult (the previous boss was harder), but there are 
several things to be careful of, like falling off of the building and 
avoiding his attacks. It's more difficult when the tentacles disappear, since 
it becomes a straight-up sword fight. Make sure to block his attacks and 
attack when you see an opening. For example, block Solidus when he kicks you, 
then slice and dice your foe. Stay on your toes and attack when the time is 
ready, and you will eventually come out the victor.

 HIGH FREQUENCY BLADE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Arsenal Gear: Ascending Colon (Mission 7)

A badass weapon that is unfortunately obtained at the very end of the game. 
You use this weapon with the Right Analog Stick. Push the Right Analog stick 
left and right to slice horizontally and up and down for a vertical slash. If 
you move it in a circle, the Raiden will perform a spinning slash. Press R3 
to have Raiden lunge forward. The only real downside other than the learning 
curve is how long it takes when you equip and unequip it. Other than that, 
the High Frequency Blade is awesome.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 M9
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Aft Deck (Mission 1)
           Strut F, Warehouse (Mission 3)

Your basic weapon, the M9 is a tranquilizer gun that you start off with in 
the opening scene. This M9 is silenced and can be used to put enemies to 
sleep. A headshot is the best way to put a guard to sleep, since hitting them 
in the chest or limb won't do much at first. Beginners might toss this weapon 
aside later in the game, but stealth masters use this and only this if they 
want to prevent killing their targets.  


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 USP/SOCOM
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Location: Navigational Deck (Mission 1)
             Strut B, Transformer Room (Mission 3)
 Suppressor: Strut F, Warehouse (Mission 4)

After fighting Olga, Snake will take her USP. Both the M9 and USP are light 
and small weapons, so they are rather similar. The obvious difference is that 
the USP fires bullets which can injure your targets. After the Tanker 
chapter, Raiden will receive the SOCOM in place of the USP -- both are nearly 
the exact same weapon. The SOCOM have a laser sight which provides better aim 
when in first-person view whereas the USP has a flashlight at the tip. You 
can find a suppressor for the SOCOM later on. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 AKS-74U
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

   Location: Strut F, Warehouse (Mission 5)
 Suppressor: Shell 1-2 Connecting Bridge (Mission 6)

The AKS-74u is found at the warehouse later in the game and is used primarily 
as a disguise. Other than pretending to be a soldier, this weapon is very 
powerful when in use. It has a very high rate of fire and can deplete a clip 
in a hurry. This is on par with the M4 in terms of usefulness. This is best 
used in Alert Mode when deciding to fend off enemies as opposed to hiding. 
You can also obtain a suppressor for this item. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 M4
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut F, Warehouse (Mission 5)

The M4 is found at the same time as the AKS-74u and is similar in style. Both 
are machine guns and have a large clip and high rate of fire. In all honesty, 
both the M4 and AKS-74u are incredibly similar, so I found myself using one 
instead of the other throughout the whole game. Both are very good items, but 
the M4 does not have a suppressor while the AKS-74u does.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 PSG1
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut F, Warehouse (Mission 6)

The PSG1 is a sniper rifle found late in the game. This is really only used 
in certain situations and pretty useless otherwise. The PSG1 automatically 
zooms in through the crosshairs when equipping, and you will have to take 
Pentazemin in order to stop trembling. A plus side is that it is an 
incredibly powerful gun and fun to use.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 PSG1-T
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut F, Warehouse (Mission 6)

The PSG1-T are for the people who play this game without killing a soul. This 
is the same as the PSG1 except that it shoots tranquilizers instead of 
bullets. Other than that, the two are exactly alike. You will have to take 
Pentazemin in order to get a clear and steady shot of your targets.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 RGB6
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut F, Warehouse (Mission 6)

The RGB6 is a grenade launcher that, needless to say, can fire grenades. The 
clip only holds four or five grenades, but these things can destroy groups of 
soldiers if aimed properly. The RGB6 is powerful, but not very good in 
stealthy situations. Only use it when in Alert Mode and have nowhere to hide. 
The RGB6 will end up collecting dust when you get the Stinger, though.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 STINGER
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Shell 1-2 Connecting Bridge (Mission 6)

The Stinger is a massive missile launcher designed to take down bigger and 
badder foes. Upon equipping, you'll enter first-person mode and you'll be 
stuck like that. The neat thing about Stingers is that you can lock onto a 
target and after firing, the missile will home onto its location. This is 
useful if you, oh I don't know, ever have to fight a Metal Gear RAY or 
something. Ya know, just throwing that out there. It's a tad on the slow 
side, but very useful.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 NIKITA
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Shell 2 Core, B1 Filtration Chamber (Mission 6)

A neat, yet useless weapon. The Nikita is another missile launcher, but you 
get to control the missiles via remote control. They go very slow, so you can 
steer the missile wherever you want. However, the sluggish weapon will alert 
guards before they're even hit and will most likely get shot down. It's a 
totally useless weapon aside from the one point where you HAVE to use it.

 GRENADE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Engine Room, Starboard (Mission 1)
           Strut F, Warehouse (Mission 6)

It's like an RGB6, except you have to pull the pin and throw the damn thing 
(aka: don't ever use these weapons). It's hard to aim where you want to toss 
it, so stick with the RGB6. You won't have to deal with them, since Grenades 
are rather rare.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 STUN GRENADE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut F, Warehouse (Mission 4)
           Strut E, Parcel Roon (Mission 4)
           Strut E Heliport (Mission 4)
           DE Connecting Bridge (Mission 5)
           Shell 1 Core, B1 (Mission 5)

A crappy weapon that should never be used by the player. The Stun Grenade 
will stun enemies after throwing it, but it automatically sends you into 
Alert Mode. They are commonly found, which makes this weapon that much more 
annoying. Argh.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 CHAFF GRENADE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Aft Deck (Mission 1)
           Deck C, Crew's Quarters (Mission 1)

           Shell 2 Core, 1F Air Purification Room (Mission 6)
           KL Connecting Bridge (Mission 6)

This can be used in the early stages of the Plant chapter to temporarily 
disable Cyphers and other mechanical devices. After throwing, a Chaff Grenade 
will mess up radio waves and any other type of mechanical device. They're fun 
to use in order to mess up guards' radios and Cyphers.

           Shell 1 Core, 1F (Mission 5)
           Strut F, Warehouse (Mission 6)

Another fun weapon, you can collect Claymores by crawling on them when 
active. Claymores can be placed and set in areas; just like little mines. 
They will explode after someone treads on one, so make sure that person isn't 
you! The only time I used Claymores was during the fight with Fatman. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 C4
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut F, Warehouse (Mission 5)
           Shell 1 Core, 1F (Mission 5)
           Shell 2 Core, B1 Filtration Chamber No. 2 (Mission 6)

Just like Claymores, C4 can be placed and detonated. However, they can only 
be detonated by remote control. I'm not sure if that makes them more or less 
useful than Claymores; it's up to you. The only time I used C4 was during the 
fight with Fatman.

           Shell 1 Core, B2 Computer Room (Mission 5)
           Shell 2 Core, B1 Filtration Chamber No. 2 (Mission 6)

Books are a neat little weapon. The empty Books don't do anything other than 
reverting a guard's attention. Throw it away from you, and the guard will go 
and inspect the noise. Some Books are "naughty" and contain explicit 
pictures. Toss them a guard's way and they will open the book and become 
distracted, allowing for you to sneak by unnoticed. Hehehe.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 COOLANT SPRAY
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut C, Dining Hall (Mission 4)

Again, not really a weapon, but a very useful tool. Coolant Sprays can be 
used to disarm C4 bombs scattered around the Plant. This can also be used to 
extinguish fires temporarily. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 DIRECTIONAL MICROPHONE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Shell 1 Core, B2 Computer Room (Mission 5)

It's not really a weapon, but it's in the category for some reason. The 
Directional Microphone is used to hear stuff. Wow, I can hardly contain by 
excitement. You can phone in on secret conversations, listen to guards from 
far away, or pinpoint specific people out of a large group if they happen to 
have a pacemaker or something like that. You know, just throwing that out 
there. :)

           Strut A, Rooftop (Mission 3)
           Shell 1 Core, B2 Computer Room (Mission 5)

When shot or stabbed, you will begin to bleed and slowly lose health. Use a 
Bandage to stop the bleeding and losing health.

           Strut E Heliport (Mission 5)

           Shell 2 Core, 1F Air Purification Room (Mission 6)
           KL Connecting Bridge (Mission 6)

These cards are found throughout the Plant. A card's number can only doors 
with its corresponding number. You can get five cards through the game, each 
opening specific doors and allowing you to proceed through the game.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 B.D.U
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut E Heliport (Mission 5)

This is a guard's uniform, so this with the AKS-74u lets you impersonate a 
guard perfectly. This is vital in accessing Shell 1 in the game, but is 
totally useless afterwards (your mask was stolen!).


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BODY ARMOR
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Shell 2 Core, B1 Filtration Room No. 2 (Mission 6)

Wear this Body Armor to reduce damage dealt to you by half. Very useful in 
tough areas or boss fights, however it's found very late in the game. :(


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 AP SENSOR
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Aft Deck (Mission 1)
           Strut A, Deep Sea Dock (Mission 3)

The AP Sensor detects lifeforms. When equipped, the controller will rumble 
when someone is nearby.

           Shell 1 Core, B2 Computer Room (Mission 5)
           Arsenal Gear: Jejunum (Mission 7)

You will find a variety of boxes in this game; primarily used for hiding. 
Don't get into the habit of walking around under a box, since guards aren't 
used to mobile boxes. Boxes can be safe in a pickle, but don't rely on them 
too much.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 VIRUS DISK
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Shell 2 Core, B1 Filtration Chamber No. 1 (Mission 6)

The Virus Disk was given to you by Emma. You can't do anything with it,so 
simply deliver it to Otacon and Snake.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 SCOPE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut A, Deep Sea Dock (Mission 3)

You can see stuff from a distance using the Scope. Zoom in with Circle and 
out with X. You don't really have to use them through the game.

 Location: Navigational Deck (Mission 1)
           Strut A, Deep Sea Dock (Mission 3)
           Strut 1 Core, B1 (Mission 5)
           Strut L Oil Fence (Mission 6)

Whip these goggles on to detect heat. Bright red objects let off heat, so 
lights and humans will be bright red. Helpful in spotting enemies and other 
things in a dark room and such. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 NIGHT VISION GOGGLES
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Shell 2 Core, B1 Filtration Chamber No. 1 (Mission 6)

These let you see in the dark. However, they are found so late in the game, 
you will probably never have to use them. I didn't.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 SENSORS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut C, Dining Hall (Mission 4)
           Strut C, Dining Hall (Mission 4)

These two Sensors can help you spot C4 bombs planted around the Plant. When 
equipped, green clouds will appear on the radar if a C4 is near. Sensor A 
works on normal C4 explosives whereas Sensor B works on odorless ones.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 MINE DETECTOR
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut F, Warehouse (Mission 4)
           Strut E, Parcel Room (Mission 4)

have to use it once or twice in the game to spot Claymores.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 CAMERAS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Aft Deck (Mission 1)
           Strut E, Parcel Room (Mission 7)

You can take pictures with a Camera. Snake will use it in order to snap 
photos of Metal Gear RAY. You can find a Digital Camera late in the game, 
which saves your photos to your memory card. Neat!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 CELL PHONE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut E Heliport (Mission 5)

A hip, up-to-date device, the Cell Phone can be used to contact Mr. X. He 
will send you text messages from time to time.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 CIGARETTE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Aft Deck (Mission 1)
           Strut B, Transformer Room (Mission 3)

Cigarettes will deplete your health, but help you spot hidden laser traps. 
They can also help you stop shaking when sniping if you happen to be out of 
Pentazemin. Otherwise, don't use Cigarettes unless you want to die. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 SHAVER
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Location: Strut A, Deep Sea Dock (Mission 3)

A trivial item, if you manage to find it and give it to Pliskin, he will be 
clean-cut the next time you meet him.

Found if you collect enough Dog Tags, the Brown Wig will supply you with 
unlimited ammo when worn. Only used in the Plant Chapter. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 ORANGE WIG
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

unlimited grip, letting you shimmy to your heart's content. Only used in the 
Plant Chapter.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BLUE WIG
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Found if you collect enough Dog Tags, the Blue Wig will supply you with 
unlimited amount of oxygen. Now you can imitate Aquaman and swim as long as 
you want! Only used in the Plant Chapter.

[9] DOG TAGS                                                            [0900]

==============================================================================

Dog Tags are a neat little item dropped by guards and other enemies. You will 
have to get guards to surrender them to you. In order to do this, hold them 
up. After holding up a guard, walk in front of them and aim at the guard. 
They will become scared and drop the Dog Tag along with any other items. 

Some guards are a little persistant, so simply aiming your weapon at their 
crotch should get the job done. Others are even less willing to drop their 
Dog Tags, so shoot one of their limbs (don't hurt them that much) to finally 
make them surrender their stuff. Dog Tags are important because you can nab 
some sweet items if you collect enough.

[10] SECRETS                                                            [1000]

==============================================================================

There are a crapload of easter eggs and secrets in this game that I don't have
nearly enough time to find them all. However, I found a nice list on Konami's
official site for the game. Check it out:

http://www.konami.jp/gs/game/mgs2/english/mr/secret_en.html 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 SNAKE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 SNAKE SNEEZES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shoot the fire extinguisher or flour bag with a USP, etc. and get sprayed/
powdered for a certain period of time.

Or (1) stand on the deck in the EXTREME game level and go in, or (2) stand on 
the deck in the VERY HARD game level for more than a minute and then go 
inside. 

Conditions to start sneezing:
- standing still
- flattened against a wall
- crouching
- crawling position but not moving
- flattened against a tank

If you stay still for 3 minutes, you will stop sneezing. 


 SNAKE GETS EXCITED
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stand in front of the sexy poster in the locker room in Deck A and call Otacon
on the Codec. You can see Snake excited.  


 RAVEN'S SHADOW
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you call Otacon on the Codec after you see Raven's shadow in the Tanker 
engine room starboard, you'll hear them being surprised about Raven being 
alive.  


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 OTACON
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 MEI LING APPEARS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Otacon recites proverbs when you save the game on the Tanker. If you keep on 
saving, Mei Ling makes an appearance on the 13th time. 


 OTACON IS KIND
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you have one more photo to take in the Metal Gear Ray photo shoot event in 
the tanker when you only have 30 seconds left, Otacon says what he already 
has (i.e. 3 photos) will do. 


 OTACON CHECKS PHOTOS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Take photos of the following and show them to Otacon, and you will get 
special responses. If you take photos of these many times, you will get 
different responses.

- Locker posters (both left and right) in tanker 1F locker room 
- Olga (she will talk if during battle) 
- Olga's face and crotch 
- Engine room starboard macho poster, portside boy and girl posters, south
  wall girl poster, Raven figure 
- Hold 1: underwear soldier (if taken from under the floor) 
- ghost photo (starboard screen photo taken from the projector position
  (happens at a 1/3 possibility) 
- Metal Gear Ray - front, front left, front right, MARINES lettering;
  Commandant Scott Dolph, Ocelot. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 OLGA
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 OLGA GETS ANGRY
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Take a photo of her during battle and she gets angry.


 OLGA MAKES FUN
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you enter Hanging Mode during battle, she makes fun of you. 


 REACTIONS FOR DOING THINGS TO OLGA WHILE ASLEEP
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you call Otacon on the Codec right after battle, he says that she is cute. 
If you attack her while she is asleep, Otacon reprimands you. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 MARINES
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HUMAN BOWLING PINS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you attack the Marines that are lined up, they crash into each other and 
fall down like bowling pins. Getting a "strike" does not give you anything.


 UNDERWEAR MARINES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you are playing the Tanker Chapter for an even number of times (2nd 
time, 4th time, etc.), the Marines in Hold 3 are in their underwear.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 ENEMY SOLDIERS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 ENEMY SOLDIER REACTIONS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Spray the Coolant Spray at a sleeping enemy and the enemy will wake up 
quickly.

The enemy's clearing patterns will change if you remain unspotted in 
clearings in the deep sea dock, Strut F warehouse, Shell 2 Core 1F.

If you approach an enemy soldier with a shield and get shot, your blood will 
splash onto the shield.

If you shoot attacking enemies, they will inject painkillers in themselves.

On the first floor of the tanker, if the soldiers come into the locker room 
to do a clearing, they will look at the poster if the locker door with the 
poster is open.

Shoot the exclamation point on top of the enemy's head and he loses track of 
what he was doing.

Place a book on the floor and the enemy will sit down and start reading it.


 DEALING WITH THE STUBBORN SOLDIER
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The stubborn enemy soldier will not give you items when holding him up unless 
you shoot at him (not with the tranquilizer; the bullet does not have to hit 
him) or point a more powerful weapon such as the Nikita missile, Stinger, and 
RGB. 


 URINATING SOLDIER
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is a urinating soldier at a certain point of the Strut L perimeter. The 
urination continues for about one minute. If you call the Colonel on the 
Codec while being urinated onto, he will try to make you feel better.


 DOG TAG STUFF
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thermal goggles will enable you to see whether or not a soldier has a dog tag.

If you keep on pressing the Action button (triangle) when equipping the
camera or binoculars, you will see the name of the soldier on top of his head 
from whom you have acquired the dog tag. If the date of birth shown on that 
soldier's dog tag coincides with the date of the PS2 console clock, you will 
see "Happy Birthday!!" right above the name on top of his head.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 RAIDEN
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 RAIDEN CATCHES A COLD
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Raiden catches a cold 2 minutes after the torture event. Take the medicine or 
get your gear back from Snake to recover.

Conditions to catch a cold:
- standing still
- flattened against a wall
- crouching


 SPECIAL EVENTS FOR NAKED RAIDEN
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If the enemy performs a clearing in the torture room, flatten yourself 
against the torture bed. You can fool the enemy that way.

The enemy will look at Raiden and say a few words of envy.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 PLISKIN
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 ATTACKING PLISKIN
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pliskin will attack you if you attack him first in the following locations.
- Strut B, Transformer Room
- Strut L Oil Fence
- Arsenal Gear: Ascending Colon
- Arsenal Gear: Sigmoid Colon


 PLISKIN TALKS IN HIS SLEEP
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the Strut B transformer room, call Pliskin on the Codec a few times while 
he is sleeping. He will say "Liquid!".


 PLISKIN SHAVES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you have picked up the Shaver in the deep sea dock, you will end up giving 
Pliskin the Shaver. Then when you meet him as Snake in Arsenal Gear, he does 
not have his beard.


 CARDBOARD BOX EVENTS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can spot a guy wearing a cardboard box on the CD Connecting Bridge. You
must go to the CD Connecting Bridge within 1 minute after the Peter demo.
(After 1 minute, or if you go to another location, the cardboard will no
longer appear.

If you attack the cardboard box man, he will run away while leaving cardboard 
box debris. Even if his cardboard box is totally destroyed, he will wear 
another one. 

If you wear a cardboard box and keep on calling Pliskin on the Codec, he will 
start talking about his passion for cardboard boxes.

And if you totally destroy the cardboard box of the guy on the CD Connecting 
Bridge, you can hear Pliskin's grievance.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 EMMA
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 EMMA'S REACTIONS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shell 2 Core, B1 Filtration Chamber No. 2: There is a window at the first 
breathing point. After the Vamp battle, if you go there before going to the 
locker room, you will be able to see Emma sitting on the stairs.

After rescuing Emma, you can call her on the Codec when accompanying her on 
frequency 141.52.

Shell 2 Core, B1 Filtration Chamber No. 2: Shoot Emma with the M9 and call 
her on the Codec. She talks in her sleep. "Venus in Cancer..."

Shell 2 Core, B1 Filtration Chamber No. 2: Attack her (but do not kill her) 
and call Otacon on the Codec. Otacon will be angry with you.

Shell 2 Core, B1 Filtration Chamber No. 2: If you kill Emma yourself, the 
Colonel, Rose, and Otacon will all criticize you upon GAME OVER.

Shell 2 Core, B1 Filtration Chamber No. 2: Set a C4 near Emma's back, and you 
can actually set a C4 on her back. 


 EMMA EVENTS (STRUT L OIL FENCE SNIPING EVENT)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can listen to Emma talking to herself with the directional microphone 
when she is behind the two large pillars during the pontoon bridge sniping 
event. Behind the first pillar she talks about Raiden's looks.

Behind the second pillar she encounters Johnny.

Point the microphone at Snake and you hear him talking to himself about 
asking Emma out for a meal.

Point the microphone at Emma while she crosses the bridge. You can hear her 
complaining.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 STILLMAN
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 STILLMAN'S REACTION
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When Peter Stillman is inside the pantry, knock on the door or press the 
Action button in front of the door. Peter will respond. If you do this 8 
times or more, Peter becomes angry.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 PRESIDENT
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 THE PRESIDENT'S REACTIONS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you flatten yourself against the wall of the room with the President, you 
will see a demo.

The President is asleep when you meet him in the HARD and EXTREME modes.

Knock on the wall of the room with the President or make a bullet hit the
wall. The President will flatten himself against the wall.

When the President is asleep, he will not be woken up by an explosion unless
it happens right on the wall or inside the room.

Point the Directional Microphone at the President and you can hear him 
talking to himself.

The President will dodge Nikita missiles in EASY mode by rolling, sliding, 
and doing sommersaults. In EXTREME mode, he'll run into the missile.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 FATMAN
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 FATMAN'S REACTIONS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It only takes one shot at Fatman's inline skates to make him fall. The skates 
cannot be destroyed.

When Fatman is playing with a seagull, if it lands on Fatman's collar, the 
seagull pecks on Fatman's head.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 VAMP
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 DURING THE ENDING
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the ending polygon demo (when Rose appears), you will find Vamp in the 
crowd in the background.


 SHADOW BINDING COUNTERMEASURES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you destroy the surrounding lights, Vamp will not be able to perform his 
shadow binding. You can undo Vamp's shadow binding not only by hitting the 
lights but also by shooting the knife that is binding the shadow.


 VAMP HAS HIS WEAKNESSES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you attack Vamp on his forehead and chest scars, you can give him more 
damage than usual.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 HARRIER
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 MISSILE ATTACK COUNTERMEASURES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Harrier has a missile pod that you can lock onto with your Stinger 
missiles only when it is close to you. Shoot that pod with the Stinger and 
destroy it. Then the Harrier will only launch a few missiles from then on.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 CREATURES
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 SEA LICE REACTIONS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Spray the Coolant Spray on them and they will go away.

Attack them in First Person View with explosive weapons and the dead sea lice 
come flying at you.

If you crawl for 2 seconds or more where there are sea lice, a sea louce will 
enter your item menu. The sea louce in the item menu will eat 1 ration every 
20 minutes. After eating 3 rations, the satisfied sea louce will disappear. 
Move the item icons rapidly to get rid of the sea louce.

Equip Rations with the sea louce attached and get attacked by the enemy. The 
Ration will be unequipped automatically.

Use all Rations while the sea louce is attached and you will be able to read 
a description of sea lice.

If you complete the game with the sea louce attached and then register your 
CLEAR CODE at our MISSION RECORDS website, you will be given the rank of SEA 
LOUCE.


 SEAGULL REACTIONS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Spray the Coolant Spray onto a seagull and it will fly away immediately.

If a falling seagull (falling when attacked/tranquilized) lands on an enemy, 
the enemy will incur damage and faint.

If you keep on attacking seagulls, the Colonel and Rose will reprimand you.

If you attack the seagulls 20 times, seagulls flying nearby the player will 
attack the player.

If you look at a seagull in First Person View when it is flying over you, 
droppings will land on the camera.

You will slip and fall if you run on piles of seagull droppings on the Strut 
A roof. If you slip on the pipe at the Shell 1-2 Connecting Bridge, you will 
fall off and die.

If you wear Cardboard Box 5 (the Zone of the Enders box - the one with the 
eye symbol), seagulls will not attack you. Birds in general are afraid of big 
eyes, as seen on rice fields where "big eyes" are used to scare away birds.


 PARROT REACTIONS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Attack the parrot and bullets will not hit it. Grenades will not explode.
The parrot will then mimic the enemy and bring about the Alert mode (when 
enemies are around).

If enemy soldiers talk about girlie magazines (Book), the parrot will then 
memorize that talk and then give you hints on where books are hidden.

If you point the microphone at the parrot and keep on asking "You must be 
Ames." for 10 times, the parrot will start saying "You must be Ames."


 BUGS' REACTIONS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can use the Coolant Spray to kill bugs near light bulbs.

There are bugs flocking around an enemy on B1, portside. If that enemy drops 
a ration when you shake him when he is unconscious, the bugs flock to the 
ration. If Snake picks up that ration, the bugs flock to Snake. Even if Snake 
moves onto another area, one bug will keep on chasing Snake. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 MISCELLANEOUS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 DEMOS AND CODEC
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

During the Codec, press R1 or R2 to "voice your opinion." The R1 is for 
positive responses and R2 for negative responses. How strong you press the 
button determines how positive or negative a response you will give.

You can move the camera with the Analog Sticks during the Codec. Moving them 
up, down, left, and right will move the characters accordingly, and pushing 
them in will allow you to zoom in. 

During polygon demos, you can zoom in with the R1 button and move the camera 
with the right analog stick.

The first website photo of the tanker flashback demo in the Shell 2 Core 1F 
will feature the photo you actually took in the hold. (If you play the game 
from the Plant Chapter, a predetermined photo will be used.)

If you toss an enemy body over the deck or knock him off the railing on the 
tanker, the second website photo of the tanker flashback demo in the Shell 2 
Core 1F will feature this scene.


 STAGE STUFF
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is a steel pipe in the farthest of the 3 rooms in Deck 2 port. Flatten 
yourself against the wall and wait for the enemy to come. Then the pipe falls 
and the enemy will spot you.

If you destroy the light in the small room on the 1st floor of Strut F, the 
enemy's vision will be limited.

After completing the game and playing it again, from the 2nd time on, Ames' 
position in the hostage room becomes random.

The location and number of scented and unscented bombs in each strut changes 
in VERY HARD and EXTREME difficulty levels.

In EASY mode, you can use the radar in all areas if you access the node once.


Shell 2 Core electrified floor
------------------------------ 
If you step on the electrified floor while equipping a cardboard box, the box 
will burn up and disappear. You will see a MOAI statue inside the duct for an 
instant.

Place a BOOK on the electrified floor and it will burn.

Toss a Grenade (regular, Chaff, Stun) onto the electrified floor and you will 
see electric currents while it is moving. It will explode when it stops.

Toss a Magazine (gun clip) onto the electrified floor and you will see 
electric currents while it is moving. Shoot the Magazine to move it and you 
will see electric currents again.  


Spot with flames
----------------
Equip the cardboard box and come in contact with the flames. The box will 
burn up and disappear.

Place a Book where there are flames. The Book will burn up and disappear.

When your clothes are on fire, equip the enemy soldier uniform or Cardboard 
Box and you can put out the fire.

Anywhere you see flames, use the Coolant Spray and you can extinguish the 
fire. 


Shell 1/Shell 2 infrared control units 
--------------------------------------
Press the L1 button on Controller 2 (a controller inserted in the controller 
slot 2) to move the "Sons of Liberty" flag. If you hit the L1 button 
repeatedly, the flag will be blown in the wind in the other direction.

If you enter, exit, and re-enter the Shell 1-2 Connecting Bridge area 8 
times, you will see a "flashback" of where the hidden control units are 
hidden.
The number of control units changes depending on the difficulty level.

From the 2nd time on, the hostages other than Ames -- shown in the demo 
during the dialogue with the Ninja when the hostage room is shown for the 
first time -- change depending on the time of the PS2 clock.

12 AM (midnight) - all young women
10 PM - all middle-aged women
1 PM - all middle-aged men


 HIDDEN CHARACTERS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can take a picture of Ocelot in Hold 3. This is possible when you come 
under the floor from Hold 2. If you look in First Person View toward Ray's 
front leg from the vertical pole mezzanine and you will see Ocelot. If you 
move your viewpoint and then come back again, he is gone.

If you point the Directional Microphone toward the toilet (on the left of 
where Solidus and Ocelot are) in the Shell 1 Core Hall during the hostage 
event, you will hear Johnny Sasaki ragging. If you equip Sensor A, you will 
get a
different response from when it detects a bomb.


Raven figure
------------
Tanker Chapter - Engine Room, Starboard (shoot it and it will keep on firing
                 BB rounds)
Plant Chapter - in the water near Shell 2, B1 Filtration Chamber #1


There is a rubber duck found at the breathing point near Shell 2, B1 
Filtration Chamber #1.


 MOAI STATUES

                        sediment tank (can be seen in First Person View only).

Strut E, Parcel Room: Level B1 security level 5 door room between the wall and
                      Cardboard Box (can be seen in First Person View only).

 CARDBOARD BOX TRANSPORTATION
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you equip a cardboard box, you can get on the conveyor belt. Which box you 
are equipping determines where you are taken.
 
Box 1 (grocery)               - Strut C, Dining Hall 
Box 2 (electronic appliances) - Strut B, Transformer Room 
Box 3 (daily commodities)     - Strut A, Pump Room 
Box 4 (action figures)        - Strut F, Warehouse 
Box 5 (video game software)   - Strut E, Parcel Room B1
 

 POSTER STUFF
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you knock on certain places on the posters, you will hear a "bounce" sound 
(whey you have a weapon equipped) or see an exclamation point (when you do 
NOT have a weapon equipped). (If enemies are around, you will attract them 
and enter Alert Mode).

When you are in the locker, if you press the R1 button to get close to the 
poster, you will hear a kissing sound.

Shoot the poster an enemy is looking at with his binoculars and it will
explode. The other poster in the engine room will also explode if shot.

 LOCKER STUFF
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you are in the locker, if you hit the R1 button strong, you will make a 
noise. However, if you hit it slowly, you will not make this noise.

There are books on top of the locker on the left side of the Shell 1 Core, B2 
Computer Room. Punch/kick the locker and 5 Books come falling down.


 STRUT C RESTROOM EVENTS AND MORE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Approach the hand dryers in the restrooms and they will activate.

If you approach and then leave the urinal in the men's room, you will hear a 
flush.

If you call Rose on the Codec from the ladies' room in Strut C, she will look 
down on you and not allow you to save for a while.

In the Hostage Room, crawl under the table in front of the young female 
hostage. If you call Rose on the Codec while staring at the lady, she will 
look down on you and not allow you to save for a while.


 NAME ENTRY AT THE NODE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When entering your name at the node, if the names of the MGS2 development 
team are entered, you will see their personal info.

What is entered here is what is shown on Raiden's dogtag in the ending.

If the birthday entered at the node happens to be the date of the PS2 clock, 
you will see "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!" in the bottom right.


 PROJECTOR FUN
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Press the Action button (triangle) by the left or right of the projector in 
Hold 2 to switch projection directions. Change it 7 times and you see a 
special movie and the game ends. You can see this movie once only. If you 
continue and change the projection direction 7 times again, a Marine will 
come looking for you.


 HANGING MODE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you climb back up from Hanging or fall off from Hanging or from something 
you have climbed up on and land on an enemy walking by, you can knock him 
unconscious. If you land on a sleeping/unconscious enemy, he will wake up.

If you fall while in Hanging mode, press the Action button (triangle) to grab 
onto the railing on the lower level ("fall-and-grab").

Do pull-ups while in Hanging mode by pressing the R2 and L2 buttons in First 
Person View. Do 100 pull-ups (they don't have to be consecutive) and your 
Grip Gauge will become longer (Level 2). Do 100 more (a total of 200) and the 
Grip Gauge will become longer again (Level 3 is the maximum level).

A fall-and-grab while in Hanging mode counts as 10 pull-ups.

If you watch closely, you see a wire in the air at the north side of the 
Engine Room. You can take a shortcut across the wire in Hanging mode.

Hold 1: You can keep going forward on the landing of the right and left
        ladders. You can then move to other holds from the 2nd floor by
        hanging across the railing.

Hold 1: You can go across the wire near the starting point in Hanging mode.


 COLONEL CAMPBELL'S CODEC QUOTES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the end of the game (after the torture scene), Colonel Campbell will, uh,
get messed up. From this point on, he will constantly phone you with random 
gibberish. You don't have to answer his calls, but they are funny. Here is a 
list of all of Colonel Campbell's quotes (courtesty of El Greco):

"I hear it's amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm, in flap-jaw space,
with the tuning fork, does a raw blink on Hiri-Kiri rock! I need scissors 61!"


"La-Li-Lu-Le-Lo!  La-Li-Lu-Le-Lo!  La-Li-Lu-Le-Lo!"


"...Infiltrate...the enemy fortress...Outer Heaven!
...Destroy...the final weapon...Metal Gear!"


"Your mission is to infiltrate the fortress Galuade, rescue the hostages and
neutralize Metal Gear before its assembly is complete."


"Variety Level 13 Rescue Meryl, the 'Return of Genola.'"


"Mind the gap."


"President Baker should be somewhere to the south of where you blasted through
the wall. Hurry and save him before the terrorists discover his code."


"Kawanishi-Noseguchi, Kinunobebashi, Takiyama, Uguisunomori, Tsuzumigataki,
Tada, Hirano, Ichinotorii, Uneno, Yamashita, Sasabe, Kofudai, Tokiwadai,
Myoukenguchi."


"I noticed this a while back, but you have far too many Game Overs. Sorry to
be blunt, but you really stink at this game."


"Honestly, though, you have played the game for a long time. Don't you have
anything else to do with your time?"


"You got a PSG-1? You can use that against Sniper Wolf. Hurry up and save
Meryl!"


"You seem to get a real thrill out of slaughtering the enemy. Are you
frustrated about something?"


"Even my patience has its limits. I just can't leave this thing up to you any
longer. I'll do the fighting! You can just go home!"


"Actually, I am in really bad shape financially. I pay money to my ex-wife as
part of our divorce settlement, among other bills... I just had no choice but
to make you pay for lunch the other day. I'm really sorry."


"Anemone or Clematis plant's juice can cause a rash. When pruning them it's
a good idea to wear gloves."


"Big Boss here... Enter the track on the bridge to the right...Over."


"Actually, there is something I have been meaning to tell you but I just
couldn't... I think you should know, though. On Saturday morning last week I
saw a guy leaving Rosemary's room...How should I put it, it was like they
were..."intimate." I'm sorry. Sorry to bring this up during the mission,
but..."


"I say again. Your duty is to infiltrate Zanzibar Land. And seize Kio Marf, an
abducted Czechoslovakian biologist."


"Snake, there's a fork in the conveyor belt. The machine is automatically
sorting cargo according to some system. Take a good look at the device."


"Snake, take the power plant out. Set C4 explosives on four key points
to destroy the structure."


"Snake, they've input both detonation codes. The only way to stop the launch
now is to use the card key to re-input the codes."


"Snake, destroy the power plant's main turbine. It's located in the B1 floor
of the plant. Break into the B1 floor."


"Variety Level 7 Shoot down the space invaders! Training will have to be
postponed if we are invaded by UFOs."


"Weapon Mode Socom Level 01 Destroy all targets to reach the goal! Number of
targets: 3."


"Snake, like Shakespeare said: "Nought's had, all's spent, Where our desire is
got without content." Basically, it means that your desire can get you into
trouble if you're not careful. That goes for Items too. Don't get too greedy 
or you might be sorry. Be careful, Snake."


"Snake, remember what De Gaulle said: "The graveyards are full of
indispensable men." Snake, you're all alone and surrounded by bad guys. Try to
be careful and avoid getting into a fight whenever you can."


"Listen, you haven't reported in for a long time until now. You think you can
just CALL only when you want something? You disappoint me."


"Communicator Entertainment Program Idea Spy 2.5 (Two-point-five) Episode 1 
New York. Here in the city where dreams come true and desires rule, something 
is being bought, sold and thrown away, even as we speak. But behind the scenes
of business as usual, the nefarious J.E. (Junker Expensive) Corporation lines
itsnalready bloated coffers with profits from worthless products. As J.E. 
swindles yet another innocent into purchasing high-priced junk...the FBI 
mobilizes a top-secret task force to put a stop to the menace. Now, the city's
best-kept secret spy is out there, briefed and ready to protect the people 
from J.E., the catalogue of conspiracy -- just call him 2.5 (Two-point-five)."


"I can't believe it -- that someone who has committed all those twisted acts
in the woman's bathroom  would make it this far... this is the end of the
world."


"Munch, munch...Um? Raiden? I'm eating right now. Get back to me 
later...munch,
munch..."


"You wouldn't be trying to give yourself a bogus score using some ingenious
trick would you? That's just about as low as anyone could possibly stoop! I
can't believe you sometimes..."


"That reminds me, I saw Gubayama the other day in Shibomnigee. He said to give
you his best."


"I'm not home right now. Please leave a message after the beep. BEEP"


"ZZ...zz..."


"I was a North American Fall Webworm in my past life. Those were the good old
days... What were you in your former life?"
