    ******************************************************************************
    3. Assault Rifles = Pistols = Machine Guns? **********************************
    ******************************************************************************
    I intended to discuss the power of each gun in its respective section. That 
    was before I discovered through experimentation that almost every non-
    tranquilizing gun is equal in strength. 
    
    To be more specific, the following guns are equal in terms of power: 
    AK-47
    M1911A1
    M63
    Patriot
    Scorpion
    Single Action Army
    XM16E1 
    
    How do I know this?
    On the normal difficulty, I killed a guard with all the guns listed above by:
    1. Only shooting one arm, each gun killed a guard after exactly six shots.
    2. Only shooting one leg, each gun killed a guard once again after exactly six 
    shots.
    3. Only shooting the torso, each gun killed a guard after exactly three shots.
    
    So Assault Rifles = Pistols = Machine guns... in the MGS universe anyway.
    
    The SVD (Sniper Rifle) and the M37 (Shotgun) are not equal to the guns listed 
    above or each other in power, they will be discussed in their sections.
    
    ******************************************************************************
    4. AK-47 *********************************************************************
    ******************************************************************************
    In-game description: "A soviet made assault rifle, reliable durable and highly 
                          precise. Uses 7.62 x 39 ammunition. Magazine size is 30 
                          rounds. Equip in first person view and press the L1 
                          button to aim from the shoulder; press the Triangle 
                          button to switch between semi-auto and full-auto fire." 
    
    Location: Rassvet, there is only one set of stairs in the area, the AK-47 is 
              on the platform at the top.
    
    Alternate Location: If missed at the first location, it can be found later at 
                        Bolshaya Past Base, inside the small weapons building at 
                        the top right of the area.
    
    Alternate location: If you missed it at the first location, you can find it 
                        later in Chyornaya Peschera Cave Branch, in the area 
                        where you first drop down.
    
    Weight: 3.5kg 
    Pretty heavy, to conserve stamina this should be left in Snake's backpack when 
    not being used. 
    
    Reload speed: Approximately 2 seconds
    
    ***************
    Ammo capacities
    ***************
    Very Easy and Easy: 301 rounds
    Normal: 151 rounds
    Hard and Extreme: 91 rounds
    
    Shoulder aiming: This will line the gun's site directly in front of you, 
                     making aiming much easier. Also this will slightly magnify 
                     your view. 
    
    Full-auto fire: The rifle will fire continuously while you hold down the 
                    Square button. Unfortunately the recoil for this gun causes it
                    to shake a lot making it inaccurate. Since the magazine only 
                    holds 30 rounds, you can only fire for three uninterrupted 
                    seconds. This guns ammo capacity is also very small, you can 
                    only hold enough ammo for a few magazines. All in all, I don't
                    think this gun is very useful in full-auto fire mode.
    
    Semi-auto fire: In this mode the rifle will fire one shot with each press of 
                    the Square button. I find the gun most useful used in this 
                    mode. Since shoulder mounting slightly magnifies your view,
                    it's fairly easy to go for head shots from a distance. The gun 
                    will still have a large recoil, you simply have to adjust 
                    your aim after each shot.
    
    ******************************************************************************
    5. Cigar Gas-Spray (CQC) *****************************************************
    ******************************************************************************
    In-game description: "A sleeping gas pistol shaped like a cigarette. The gas it 
                          sprays puts enemies to sleep."
    
    Location: Graniny Gorki Lab B1 West, in the small room near the stairs you 
              enter from.
    
    Weight: 0.3kg
    The lightest in the game. Keeping this weapon on Snake at all times will barely 
    affect his stamina.
    
    Reload speed: N/A
    
    ***************
    Ammo capacities
    ***************
    Very Easy and Easy: 50 sprays
    Normal: 25 sprays
    Hard and Extreme: ? sprays
    
    Close Quarters Combat: While this weapon is equipped and you're not in 
                           disguise, you can still grab enemies and knock them 
                           out, slit their throat, interrogate them, all the 
                           stuff you can normally do when a weapon isn't equipped. 
    
    Firing: This blow gun will spray sleeping gas once with each press of the 
            square button. It's disguised as a normal cigarette and will be 
            visible in Snake's mouth as such when it's equipped. It's disguised as 
            such because it is meant for Snake to use while he's disguised as a 
            scientist, officer, etc. The spray does not travel far, so you'll have 
            to be right next to an enemy for it to hit him. When an enemy is hit 
            with the spray, he will fall asleep instantly. Also since this is a 
            blow gun that simply releases a spray, it is completely silent.
    
    ******************************************************************************
    6. EZ Gun (CQC) **************************************************************
    ******************************************************************************
    In-game description: "A suppressed tranquilizer gun developed especially for 
                          FOX. The suppression function is built into the gun 
                          itself. Also equipped with an internal laser sight. 
                          When equipped, causes stamina to recover faster and 
                          keeps the camo index high. Also eliminates footstep 
                          noise."
    
    Location: In Snake's backpack during a very easy game. Can be unlocked during 
              any other difficulty by completing the game after capturing at least 
              one of every food.
    
    Weight: 0.5kg
    One of the lightest guns in the game. Keeping this weapon on Snake at all times 
    will barely affect his stamina.
    
    Reload speed: N/A
    
    Ammo capacity: Infinite rounds on all difficulties
    
    Close Quarters Combat: While this weapon is equipped you can still grab 
                           enemies and knock them out, slit their throat, 
                           interrogate them, all the stuff you can normally do 
                           when a weapon isn't equipped. Also while holding an 
                           enemy, lightly press and hold the Square button to use 
                           him as a human shield while firing at other enemies; 
                           press and hold L1 to aim in first person and hard press
                           Square to fire.
    
    Firing: This gun will fire one round each time you press the Square button. 
            Like every gun that fires tranquilizer rounds, this gun must be 
            cocked after every shot. Aiming in first person view is a breeze 
            thanks to the laser sight, you can also greatly magnify your view by 
            pressing and holding the L1 button. The gun has infinite ammo, and 
            while equipped it keeps your camo index at 80%.

    7. M1911A1 (CQC) *************************************************************
    ******************************************************************************
    In-game description: "A .45 gauge automatic pistol that boasts high 
                          reliability and massive stopping power. Magazine size is
                          7 rounds. Open the window and press the Circle button to
                          attach/detach a suppressor."
    
    Location: Rassvet, EVA will give Snake this weapon when you meet her there.
    
    Weight: 1.0kg
    One of the lightest guns in the game. Keeping this weapon on Snake at all 
    times will barely affect his stamina.
    
    Reload speed: Approximately 1 second
    
    ***************
    Ammo capacities
    ***************
    Very Easy and Easy: 71 rounds
    Normal: 36 rounds
    Hard and Extreme: 22 rounds
    
    Close Quarters Combat: While this weapon is equipped you can still grab 
                           enemies and knock them out, slit their throat, 
                           interrogate them, all the stuff you can normally do 
                           when a weapon isn't equipped. Also while holding an 
                           enemy, lightly press and hold the Square button to use 
                           him as a human shield while firing at other enemies; 
                           press and hold L1 to aim in first person and hard press 
                           Square to fire.
    
    Firing: This gun will fire one round each time you press the Square button. 
            Aiming in first person lines the gun's site up directly with your 
            view, this makes aiming very easy. This gun is also perfect for 
            killing enemies stealth-fully thanks to it's suppressor. This is my 
            weapon of choice, providing I'm not trying for a no kill game.

    8. M63 ***********************************************************************
    ******************************************************************************
    In-game description: "An American-made system weapon, belt-fed light machine 
                          gun version. Uses 5.56mm x 45 ammunition. Magazine size 
                          is 100 rounds."
    
    Location: Svyatogornyj East, inside the top-left room of the cabin. You have 
              to climb over the crates to reach it.
    
    Alternate location: If you missed it at the above location, you can find it 
                        later in Groznyj Grad North West, inside the small 
                        weapons building.
    
    Weight: 4.5kg 
    The second heaviest gun in the game, to conserve stamina leave this in the 
    backpack when not being used.
    
    Reload speed: Approximately 5 seconds
    
    ***************
    Ammo capacities
    ***************
    Very Easy and Easy: 1001 rounds
    Normal: 501 rounds
    Hard and Extreme: 301 rounds
    
    Full-auto fire: This rifle's only mode of fire. It will fire continuously 
                    while you hold down the Square button. The recoil for this 
                    gun causes it to shake a lot making it inaccurate. Like every 
                    fully-auto weapon, you can only carry enough ammo for a few 
                    magazines. That's not a bad thing for this weapon, being as 
                    each magazine carries 100 rounds. You can fire uninterrupted

    Close range shots: This gun is ideal for close range shots. It will fire one 
                       round with each press of the square button and it must be 
                       cocked after each shot. This gun may not be accurate but it 
                       doesn't need to be; shooting any guard anywhere on their 
                       body will kill them in one shot and send them flying. It 
                       can also kill groups of enemies with one shot, providing 
                       they're close together.
    
    Distance shots: The guns weak point, using it at great distances should be 
                    avoided. The gun will do very little damage; it will take at 
                    least three shots to kill an enemy, that is if you can hit 
                    him.

    Close Quarters Combat: While this weapon is equipped you can still grab 
                           enemies and knock them out, slit their throat, 
                           interrogate them, all the stuff you can normally do when 
                           a weapon isn't equipped. Also while holding an enemy, 
                           lightly press and hold the Square button to use him as 
                           a human shield while firing at other enemies; press and 
                           hold L1 to aim in first person and hard press Square to 
                           fire.
    
    Firing: This gun will fire one round each time you press the Square button. 
            Like every gun that fires tranquilizer rounds, this gun must be cocked 
            after every shot. Aiming in first person lines the gun's site up 
            directly with your view, this makes aiming very easy. A guard will not 
            be alerted after he's hit with a shot from this gun, so always use 
            the suppressor as to avoid alerting them from the sound of your gun 
            fire. A head shot will instantly put enemies to sleep, a shot in the 
            leg or arm will take about 12 seconds, and a shot in the torso will 
            take about 8 seconds.

            more precisely. There is almost no involuntary movement done by Snake 
            even when standing, this makes head shots a breeze. One shot to the

    Full-auto fire: The submachine gun will fire continuously while you hold down 
                    the Square button. Unfortunately the recoil for this gun 
                    causes it to shake a lot making it inaccurate. Since the 
                    magazine only holds 30 rounds, you can only fire for three 
                    uninterrupted seconds. This guns ammo capacity is also very 
                    small, you can only hold enough ammo for a few magazines. All 
                    in all, I don't think this gun is very useful in full-auto 
                    fire mode.
    
    Semi-auto fire: In this mode the submachine gun will fire one shot with each 
                    press of the Square button. I find the gun most useful used in 
                    this mode. You can't aim precisely or shoulder mount this 
                    weapon, but the laser pointer more than makes up for it. The 
                    gun still has a large recoil, you simply have to adjust your 
                    aim after each shot.

            When firing in first person, the between shot time is a drawback for

            For whatever reason, Snake is unable to walk/run while firing this 
            gun. The only plus to using this weapon is the bullets ricocheting. 
            If you're like me and could care less about that, you'll stick to 
            using the M1911A1, after all they're equal in power.
