personal, private use. It may not be placed on any web site (except GAMEFAQs)
or otherwise distributed publicly without advance written permission. Use of
this guide on any other web site or as a part of any public display is
strictly prohibited, and a violation of copyright.


This FAQ Walkthrough is based on the NORMAL difficulty.  There will be more/
less enemies in higher/lower difficulties.

This FAQ Walkthrough is to help you do the following:
-- Get through the game (duh)
   More specifically, I'll try to provide strategies to get NO ALERTS

   An ALERT occurs when you see the word "ALERT" on the screen.  Even if it
   appears for a millisecond, that will count as an ALERT.

   Having NO ALERTS will give you the CHAMELEON rank.

     The reward for this rank:  STEALTH CAMOUFLAGE
       -- The Stealth Camouflage is an ITEM (i.e., it shows up on the left
          side inventory in the BACKPACK).  When equipped, this will give
          Snake a Camo Index of 100%.
       -- The Stealth Camouflage is considered a SPECIAL ITEM

+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
|  The other way to get Stealth Camouflage is to shoot all sixty-four (64)  |
|  Kerotan frogs.  Kerotans are small, green toy frogs.  Shooting all of    |
|  these will give you the KEROTAN rank.  I am NOT going to outline the     |
|  locations of these frogs in this Walkthrough.                            |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+

NOTE:  Obtaining Stealth Camouflage has NOTHING to do with the number of
       kills Snake racks up.  There has been quite a large amount of
       confusion with regard to this.

       NO ALERTS!  KILL ENEMIES TO YOUR HEART'S CONTENT!
         -- This guide, however, will focus on ways to get no kills.

-- Show how to catch a Tsuchinoko, and retain it (alive) through the game.

   Obtaining and retaining a Tsuchinoko will give you the TSUCHINOKO rank.

     The reward for getting this rank:  INFINITE AMMO FACE PAINT (IFP)
       -- The IFP gives Snake infinite ammunition for all guns and
          grenades.  Suppressors, however, will still wear down, even when
          Snake is using the IFP.
       -- The IFP is considered a SPECIAL ITEM

       -- Getting both the IFP and EZ gun is possible; keep the Tsuchinoko
          alive while getting the rest of the food and medicinal items.

-- Show the locations of weapons, face paints and uniforms.

-- Show where all forty-four food items and four medicinal plants are.

   I will be creating a checklist of the food items in each area after a
   general approach to getting through that area.  So, if you DON'T want to
   get all the food items, you can skip the food checklist.

   I will also be creating a checklist of the medicinal plants and items from
   animals in each area.  Pre-packaged medicinal items will NOT appear in
   these checklists.

   Instead of saying where ALL of them are, I will only mention the locations
   of new animals and plants.

   Obtaining all of these items will give you the MARKHOR rank.

     The reward for getting this rank:  EZ GUN
       -- The EZ gun is a permanently silenced tranquilizer with a laser
          sight, that will give Snake a minimum Camo Index of 80%.  In
          addition, it has infinite ammo and Snake's stamina will recover
          with this gun equipped.
       -- This gun is available at the outset in Very Easy difficulty
       -- The EZ GUN is considered a SPECIAL ITEM


   You do NOT have to eat every food item Snake collects.  It is easier, in
   my opinion, to keep track of the food items if Snake eats them, since
   Snake's food history (from Virtuous Mission and Operation Snake Eater) can
   be accessed in Operation Snake Eater.  

It *IS* possible to get all of the special items above in one play through.

The Kerotan rank is higher than the Markhor rank, which is higher than the
Tsuchinoko rank, which is higher than the Chameleon rank.

So, if you collect all forty-eight food and medicinal items while getting no
alerts, you will get the MARKHOR rank.


An alternative way to get the Stealth Camouflage and IFP in one play through
is to get one of the higher ranks (HOUND, DOBERMAN, FOX, FOXHOUND).

These are the criteria:

Play Time          :  Less than five hours (5:00:00)
Save               :  Less than twenty-five (25) saves
Continue           :  Zero (0) continues
Alert Mode         :  Zero (0) times
Humans Killed      :  Zero (0) people
Seriously injured  :  Less than twenty (20) times
Total Damage       :  Less than five (5) life bars
Life Medicine Used :  Zero (0) times
Special Items      :  Not used


NOTES:  It is possible to get these ranks with alerts, but neither the
        Stealth Camouflage nor the IFP will be awarded.

        Watching cutscenes and listening to radio conversations will be taken
        into account for the play time.  Cutscenes can be skipped by pressing
        ecks (X); radio conversations can be skipped by pressing triangle.

        The number of kills is taken into account for these ranks.  As long
        as Snake doesn't directly use a LETHAL weapon* on an enemy (who dies)
        it is NOT A KILL.  That is to say, if Snake tranqs an enemy on a
        vehicle, and it crashes, that is NOT a kill.  If an enemy is bitten/
        stung by a poisonous animal that Snake throws at him, or if the enemy
        eats poisonous food Snake proffers to him, those are NOT kills.  If
        Snake shoots an oil drum, and any nearby conscious enemies perish as
        a result of the explosion, those do NOT count as kills.  If there are
        unconscious enemies next to an oil drum and it explodes, these WILL
        count as kills.  Use of TNT and/or claymores to cause an explosion
        also DO count as kills.

        * LETHAL weapons refer to weapons that are not tranquilizers (MK22,
          EZ GUN, stun grenades, Mosin Nagant, Cigar Spray, Handkerchief).

        tap R2 twice, press (S) again, and repeat.

  CCCC  AMOUFLAGE    SSSS    YSTEM

******************************************************************(CAMO-SSTM)

In the upper right hand corner is a box, with a percentage below.
  This
percentage is the Camo(uflage) Index.  The higher the Camo Index, the better
Snake blends in with his environment.  This is reflected in the image in the
box.  If it stands out (i.e., the white image within contrasts brightly
against the background), the Camo Index is low.  If the image blends with the
background, the Camo Index is high.

Since this is a stealth game it is a good idea to have the Camo Index to
be at least 80%.  The maximum, of course, is 100%.  The minimum can be as low
as -40%.  There are only a few instances where 100% is possible (however,
with the stealth camouflage item, this is easy).  A negative Camo Index is
pretty easy to do; especially when firing a weapon sans a suppressor while
Snake has no shirt (i.e., "wearing" Naked uniform).

If the Camo Index is negative, Snake will be EXTREMELY easy to spot.

The Camo Index depends on a variety of factors:
-- Face paint
-- Uniform
-- Snake's environment
-- Whether Snake is lying prone, crawling, crouched, or standing
-- Whether or not Snake is in motion
-- Weapons being fired

The Face paint and Uniform contribute heavily toward the Camo Index.  These
can be changed by accessing the CAMOUFLAGE menu in the Survival Viewer
(by pressing START).  

Face paints, in general, contribute as much as 10%.  Uniforms contribute the
rest.  If a face paint has '00' on the right side of the bar, that means
changing to that particular face paint will have a negligible effect on the
Camo Index.  However, selecting the face paint can change Snake's look
aesthetically in cutscenes (such as the Zombie face paint instead of Black).

If the face paint has a negative number on the right side of the bar, that
means changing to that particular face paint will have a negative effect on
the Camo Index (i.e., lower it).  Inversely, if the face paint has a positive
number (such as '05' or '10'), it will have a positive effect on the Camo
Index (i.e., raise it).

Lying prone in tall grass, with the best face paint and uniform, will
generate the highest Camo Index.  Crawling will decrease Camo Index somewhat.
Crouching will decrease the Camo Index some more.  Standing has more of a
negative impact.  Next worse would be to stalk.  Worse yet is running around,
causing Snake to make noise, decreasing the Camo Index drastically.  The
absolute WORST is running around, with the least appropriate face paint and
uniform while firing a weapon that has no suppressor.

Snake begins with the following face paints:
-- No Paint
-- Woodland
-- Black
-- Splitter
-- Mask

The uniforms work in the same way as the face paints.  '00' on the right side
of the bar has a negligible effect on the Camo Index, while a negative or
positive number will decrease or increase the Camo Index, respectively.

Snake begins with the following uniforms:
-- Naked
-- Olive Drab
-- Tiger Stripe
-- Leaf
-- Tree bark
-- Squares
-- Black

******************************************************************(CURE-SSTM)

The bar on top is Snake's life bar.  When Snake gets injured, this bar will
get shorter.  Non-serious injuries, such as attacks from some animals, will
cause Snake's life bar to shorten.  When Snake sustains extra damage (broken
bones, burns, gunshot wounds, etc.) a segment of the bar will turn red.  To
replenish this segment, go into the Survival Viewer, and make use of the CURE
menu.  If this segment is not replenished, and you save and reload much
later, that segment will not be able to heal correctly.

After saving, and reloading later, the life bar will increase, if Snake
performed operations successfully.

Another way to fill Snake's life bar is to use Life Medicine.  Essentially,
these act as the rations did in MGS1 and MGS2. 

NOTE:  The CURE menu will not be available until near the end of the
       Virtuous Mission.

When Snake is ailing, and after accessing the CURE menu in the Survival
Viewer, large circles appear above an injury.  The affected area will be
displayed using an Xray effect.  The hurt areas will generate concentric
circles that radiate outward.  Use the left analog stick to highlight a
specific injury.  A line will extend from the circle to a box detailing
which type of injury/condition Snake has sustained, as well as treatments
that have yet to be done.

When the CURE menu is accessed, two divisions will show up.  Snake can cure
himself using medicine (L2) and/or perform surgery (R2) and pressing (O).

Medicine is used to treat poison (from food); to cure colds; to treat animal
poisons; and to cure stomachaches (from rotten food).  These are the
medicines found in the game:
-- Antidote (ANTIDOTE)        :  Treats toxins from food
-- Cold Medicine* (C MED)     :  Treats cold symptoms
-- Blood Serum (SERUM)        :  Treats poison from bites, stings, and bolts
-- Digestive Medicine (D MED) :  Treats stomachache symptoms from rotten food

The ANTIDOTE can be obtained by collecting the Baikal Scaly Tooth Mushroom.
The C MED* can be obtained by collecting a small bush with green leaves and
purple berries, normally at the base of rocks or trees.
The SERUM can be obtained by killing a European Rabbit.
The D MED can be obtained by collecting the Russian False Mango.

NOTE:  If you're running low on D MED or ANTIDOTE, you can make Snake vomit!
       Go into the CURE menu, spin the character round (right round) several
       times, press START to exit the Survival Viewer, and *vomit*

       This will drain stamina (see below).  But, at least, Snake's gastric
       ailments will be healed.

To use a specific medicine, press and hold L2, then cycle through the menu to
choose the appropriate treatment.  Press (O) to use the medicine.

Surgery is used to mend Snake's wounds, cuts, burns and broken bones; to get
rid of leeches; to disinfect cuts and gunshot wounds; to alleviate pain from
burns; to splint broken bones; to stop bleeding; to remove bullets, bolts, or
needles; and to stitch cuts closed.  These are the surgical supplies found in
the game:
-- Bandage (BANDAGE)         :  General purpose supply -- used to treat cuts,
                                burns, wounds and broken bones
-- Cigar (CIGAR)             :  Used to kill off leeches (burn sucker burn!)
-- Disinfectant* (DISINFECT) :  Used to treat cuts and gunshot wounds
-- Ointment (OINTMENT)       :  Salve used to treat burns
-- Splint* (SPLINT)          :  Used to help broken bones heal
-- Styptic* (STYPTIC)        :  Used to stop bleeding from cuts and gunshot
                                wounds
-- Survival Knife (KNIFE)    :  Used to remove bullets, bolts, needles, bees
-- Fork (FORK)               :  Used to remove bullets, and other foreign
                                objects, in lieu of the KNIFE
-- Suture Kit (SUTURE KIT)   :  Used to stitch cuts closed

The BANDAGE and SUTURE KIT items can be found in buildings or from enemies.
The DISINFECT can be obtained by collecting a shin-high tall grassy reed-like
plant with white flowers, normally at the base of rocks or trees.
The OINTMENT can be obtained by shooting down a Baltic Hornet's Nest.
The SPLINT can be obtained by collecting a shin-high tall grassy reed-like
plant with pink flowers, normally at the base of rocks or trees.
The STYPTIC can be obtained by collecting a small plant with broad green
leaves, normally at the base of rocks or trees.

NOTE:  The items with the asterisks (*) are the four (4) medicinal plants.
       To collect them, Snake can shoot them, knife them, or (punch punch)
       kick them.  The medicinal supplies above do not go into Snake's
       BACKPACK.

To perform a specific surgical treatment, press and hold R2, then cycle
through the menu to choose the appropriate treatment.  Press (O) to operate.

The bar below Snake's life bar is the stamina bar.  As Snake moves around,
his stamina will decrease.  The more energy Snake exerts, the faster his
stamina will deplete.  As stamina decreases, so does Snake's accuracy with
weapons.  When his stamina gets low, Snake's stomach will start to growl.
This noise can alert enemies to Snake's position -- since this is a stealth
game, this is highly undesirable.  If his stamina gets still lower, Snake's
hands will shake so badly, shooting enemies will become a problem.

The higher Snake's stamina, the longer he can hang from branches and ledges,
as reflected by the grip gauge.  In addition, the more stamina Snake has, the
longer he can hold his breath underwater, as reflected by the oxygen (O2)
gauge.

Another benefit of high stamina is faster health recovery.  As long as there
aren't any red bars in Snake's life meter, and Snake has a lot of stamina,
Snake will recover health quickly.

To keep Snake's stamina up, make sure to eat food by accessing the FOOD menu
in the Survival Viewer.  Snake can only carry three (3) LIVE animals that he
has caught (in a mousetrap or by tranquilizing).  These animals appear in
cages.

Snake can only carry sixteen (16) non-caged food items.  The cans (which look
similar to the MGS2 rations) can be the animals that he has KILLED or flora
that he has collected by (punch punch) kicking them, knifing them, or
shooting them.  These canned rations can AND will spoil the longer they stay
in Snake's inventory.

To find animals (and enemies), use the sonar -- which isn't provided in the
higher difficulties.  Be careful, though:  The sonar pings will attract
attention from enemies.

Make note of the food item in the FOOD menu.  If there are NO flies shown, it
is not spoiled.  If there is ONE fly shown, it has a 50% possibility of being
spoiled.  If there are TWO flies shown, it is spoiled.  If Snake eats any
rotten/spoiled food, he'll get a stomachache.  Snake's stamina will deplete
extremely quickly.  You'll have to use the CURE menu to heal him, or he can
vomit the rotten food.  The latter will take a good chunk of Snake's stamina,
though.

There are forty-four (44) food items; there are several types of fauna
(animals and arachnids) and flora that Snake can eat.

Caged poisonous animals can be thrown at enemies to poison (and eventually
kill) them.  Caged animals can also be thrown to distract enemies.  Rotten
food can be thrown at/near enemies.  If they're hungry, the enemies will
pick up the food and get a stomachache.  This is done by equipping the food
and/or cages as weapons in the BACKPACK menu (see below).

Snake's stamina increase from food is directly related to his affinity toward
the food.  If he likes the taste (YUM!) of the food item, his stamina will
increase more than if he's indifferent or flat-out hates it (ICK!).

However, Snake's palate can adapt.  What he initially dislikes, Snake can
grow to like over the course of the game, if you make Snake eat it often.
As he grows to like a certain food, the more stamina he'll recover from that
particular food.  A very cool mechanic, in my opinion.  (Though, if the food
is poisonous, Snake will NOT get used to the poison).

Man-made foods (Calorie Mates, Russian Rations, Instant Noodles) will NEVER
spoil.  These count toward Snake's sixteen canned ration limit.  Snake will
always make a full stamina recovery from the Instant Noodles and Calorie
Mates.  Russian Rations will not taste good initially, and thus, will not
increase Snake's stamina fully.  As mentioned in the previous paragraph, if
he eats it more often, the better it will taste, and the more stamina it
will increase.

Weapons, equipment and items found in this game MUST be accessed through the
BACKPACK menu in the Survival Viewer.

When the BACKPACK menu is accessed, two divisions will show up.  Snake can
equip items (left side) and/or weapons (right side).  Select/deselect the
weapons and items with (O).  To find out more information about a particular
weapon or item, press R2 or L2, respectively.

Snake can only equip eight (8) items and only eight (8) weapons at a time.

As you increase the number of items and weapons selected/equipped, the
heavier Snake's backpack will become.  Weapons and items have their own
specific weights.  The weight (in kilograms) is reflected at the bottom of
each division.  The heavier Snake's backpack, the quicker Snake's stamina
will deplete!  Therefore, it's a good idea to keep the number of items and
weapons on Snake's person to a minimum.

Snake begins with the following items during both missions (Virtuous Mission
and Operation Snake Eater):
-- Fake Death Pill
-- Revival Pill
-- Cigar
-- Binoculars
-- Motion Detector
-- Active Sonar
-- Anti-Personnel Sensor

Quick note about the Fake Death Pill.  This will simulate death for Snake.
It will usually fool enemies into thinking Snake has died, and will call off
any reinforcements and/or revert back to NORMAL phase.

To use it, press and hold L2, scroll to it, and press (O).  To recover from
the faked death, use the Revival Pill in a similar fashion.

However.  If you don't use the Revival Pill before the words "SNAKE IS DEAD"
changes all the way to "TIME PARADOX" ... Snake. will. die.  This death is
like any other death (from injuries, falling off a cliff, etc), and will be
counted in the tally of number of deaths in your final statistics.

Snake begins with the following weapons:
-- MK22 (Virtuous Mission only)
-- Survival Knife (Virtuous Mission and Operation Snake Eater)
-- Directional Microphone (Virtuous Mission and Operation Snake Eater)
-- Calorie Mate (Virtuous Mission and Operation Snake Eater)
-- M1911 (Operation Snake Eater only)
-- Stun grenades (Operation Snake Eater only)

As mentioned in the Food System section, caged poisonous animals can be
thrown at enemies to poison (and eventually kill) them.  Caged animals 
(especially snakes) can also be thrown to distract enemies.  Rotten food can
be thrown at/near enemies.  If they're hungry, the enemies will pick up the
food and get a stomachache.  Poisonous food can also be thrown at/near
enemies.  If they're hungry, the enemies will pick up the food and die.

This is done by equipping the food and/or cages as weapons on the right
(weapons) side.  Cages will appear below the last weapon; the rest of the
food appear below the cages.  Select the food item in the BACKPACK menu,
exit the Survival Viewer, equip the food item, and throw like a grenade!

When shooting, it's best to have a lot of stamina.  The best position while
shooting would be laying prone -- it's the most stable.  The next best would
be crouching; followed by standing.

Items and ammunition can be obtained from enemies.  Four items will be
yielded by a conscious held-up enemy.  Two items from enemies that are
unconscious (with stars over their heads) or tranquilized (with Z's over
their heads).  Lastly, one item from a killed enemy.

I'm going to recommend shaking down certain tranqed enemies for the
suppressors (for MK22 and M1911), batteries, and healing items.

To hold up an enemy, stalk behind an enemy and point a gun at his back.  Go
in front of him, then aim at his head or crotch.  The enemy will shake and
yield an item.  Strafe with L1, if you want, or hold him up again
(and again).  Between aiming at the head/crotch, aim at the torso.  Tranq
or eliminate him afterwards.

You can also hold up an enemy on the ground.  Stalk behind him and use CQC
to get a strangle hold.  Push toward Snake's front while re-pressing (O) to
push the enemy to the ground.  Aim and the head/crotch, as outlined above.
The enemy will stay on his stomach until another enemy snaps him out of it.

Ammunition from enemies can vary depending on which guns you have.  If the
only lethal gun you have is the M1911, then the enemies will drop ammo for
the M1911.  If you have the AK-47 or XM16, then they may drop ammo for those
carbines.  The same is true for the environment.  I will pick up the guns as
they come along, and, therefore, will be making note of the ammo in the area.
If you didn't pick up that fire-arm, the ammo will be different, and will
likely have the M1911 as the default lethal ammo.

Electrical items (equipment) such as the Motion Detector, Active Sonar,
Anti-Personnel Sensor, Night Vision and Thermal Goggles all use batteries.
Equipping
 a piece of electrical equipment will drain the batteries.  To
recharge them, unequip the equipment and move (i.e., run) around a bit.  The
more stamina Snake has, the faster the batteries will recharge.  (Note,
however, that running around will slowly decrease stamina.)  Batteries can
also be recharged by eating a special mushroom (Russian Glow Cap).

Batteries can be found in a couple buildings and from certain enemy soldiers.

A quick note about orientation in this game.  The camera can swivel 360
degrees around Snake.  Therefore, it is hard to use directions without a
constant frame of reference.

The solution?  The in-game map.  This can be accessed by pressing START,
selecting MAP and pressing (O).

Another way to easily discern direction would be to press on the right analog
stick (R3) to revert to the Snake Eater fixed camera.  With this camera, up
will be considered north; down will be south; west will be left; east will be
right.

Press R3 again to go back to the Subsistence camera.

All ASCII representations in the FAQ will have north as up, south as down,
left as west, right as east.

******************************************************************(STLH-SSTM)

Similar to MGS1 and MGS2, there are different phases concerning Snake's
attention from the enemy.

First, there's the NORMAL phase.  The enemy is blissfully ignorant of
whatever Snake is doing.  They haven't heard footsteps.  They haven't seen a
vague figure in conspicuous camouflage.  Everything is fine and dandy.  They
will patrol like it's another day in the jungle.

The opposite of the NORMAL phase is the ALERT phase.  Snake messed up some
way, some how.  The most basic way an ALERT phase is triggered is if the
enemy spots Snake at close range (or sometimes through irregular behavior).
Also, there are some alarms that can be pulled within buildings that trigger
an ALERT.

Usually when Snake is spotted, an enemy will have a RED exclamation mark (!)
above his head.  You will see the word ALERT on the screen, as well as a
counter.  Enemy reinforcements will flood the area where Snake is located.

To wind down the counter, it is best to use the most appropriate camouflage
and hide.  If you don't care about wasting ammo, feel free to kill every
enemy.

Note:  For those going for a rank that requires no ALERTs, dying and
       continuing after getting an ALERT will still count.  If you see the
       word ALERT at any time, even for a millisecond, reset.

If Snake is hidden well, the counter will wind down to the next phase --
EVASION.  An EVASION is NOT an ALERT.

REPEAT:  AN EVASION IS NOT AN ALERT!

But.  An EVASION can escalate into an ALERT if the aforementioned things
happen.

The enemy still feels threatened, but they aren't putting all resources into
hunting Snake.  They are mainly keeping a look out for Snake.  As long as
Snake isn't found, the counter will wind down to the next lowest phase.

The next lowest is the CAUTION phase.  A CAUTION is NOT an ALERT, either.

REPEAT:  A CAUTION IS NOT AN ALERT!

But.  A CAUTION can escalate into an ALERT if Snake gets spotted or an alarm
is pulled.

During the CAUTION phase, the enemy feels mostly secure but is still keeping
an eye out for Snake.

A CAUTION can be triggered by an enemy finding another enemy dead or
unconscious (with stars above his head).  Finding tranquilized enemies (with
Z's above their heads) will not trigger a CAUTION.

However, if an enemy witnesses a comrade get tranquilized, it will trigger a
CAUTION.

Another way to get a CAUTION is missing an enemy with a fire-arm, or shooting
him non-lethally.  If you don't shoot the head with the fire-arm, this will
trigger a CAUTION.

The CAUTION phase is usually preceded by a call by the enemy to headquarters.

When the CAUTION timer winds down all the way, it's back to the NORMAL phase.
Reinforcements will return to base, and the enemies will resume patrols.

A quick note about BLUE exclamation marks (!).  A BLUE exclamation mark will
not necessarily trigger a non-NORMAL phase.  It just shows that something has
garnered the enemy's attention -- usually footsteps.  So, if you run up to an
enemy, he will normally turn around with a BLUE exclamation mark.  As long as
you CQC slam (or tranq/kill) him immediately afterwards, everything will be
fine.

If you exit an area with one of these phases, the phase will carry over into
the next area (except on Very Easy and Easy).

Also, note that the positions of the animals and guards will be reset when
Snake goes into another area and returns.

There are four options when you start a NEW GAME.

I'm playing the MGS series for the first time!
 -- Default introductory cutscene.

I like MGS1!
 -- Snake will lose stamina at a slower rate during Virtuous Mission.

I like MGS2!

    until the backpack is retrieved.

I like MGS3!
 -- Unlocks all the cutscenes in Demo Theatre, European Extreme difficulty,
    Duel; unlocks face paints and camouflages that were introduced after
    MGS3:  Snake Eater was released.
      -- Brown face paint (O2 gauge will not diminish)

The recommended face paint and camouflage are based on an assumption that
the "I'm playing the MGS series for the first time!" option was selected.  If
you chose "I like MGS3!" there will be some cases when the camo index will be
higher if other face paints and camouflage are used.

However, I will be using camouflages and face paints as they are collected.

Also, the number of enemies in each area is based on the NORMAL status.

Cutscenes and radio conversations can be skipped, if desired.

When you gain control of Snake, get accustomed to the camera system.  Rotate
the camera by using the right analog stick.  If you're not familiar with the
controls, I'd recommend getting used to the amount of pressure needed to do
various things.  For instance, there's a difference between the amount of
pressure to cause Snake to crouch (kneel) and to lay prone.  Becoming
cognizant about this difference will be amazingly helpful when using CQC.
Since there aren't any enemies to practice CQC on, I'd recommend getting used
to crouching, standing up, then lying prone, etc.  Also, try out stalking
with the Dpad.

After you've familiarized yourself with the controls, get the backpack(u)
hanging in the tree.  Do so by heading north and slightly west.  Notice the
log at a diagonal?  Head towards it.  There is a crawl space below a
horizontal log.  Crawl to the north.  Stand up after crawling, and head to
the large tree with vines at the trunk.  Climb the tree by pressing the
action button (T).  Snake will sidestep onto the branch.  Press (T) to hang
from the branch, then go right to claim Snake's backpack.

Watch the tutorial radio conversation or skip it by holding (T).  Note that
there is some dialog after the tutorial.  So, if this is your first time
through, watch the whole thing.

After the short cutscene, try out the SURVIVAL VIEWER by pressing START.
You can change camouflage or face paint.

Recommended Face paint:  Woodland
Recommended Camouflage:  Leaf

Try equipping/unequipping weapons and items in the Backpack.  

Practice removing and re-attaching the suppressor on the MK22.  With the MK22
selected, press and hold R2, then press (O) once to remove, and press again
to re-attach the suppressor.  Try firing a shot with and without the
suppressor.  Notice the difference in the Camo Index?

If you don't want to get some food, head to the north.  Otherwise:

+-------+-------------------------------------------------------------------+
| FOOD! |  Equip the SURVIVAL KNIFE by pressing and holding R2, then scroll |
+-------+  to the knife.  Let go of R2.                                     |
|                                                                           |
| Since there are no enemies in this area, might as well conserve the       |
| suppressor.  Remove it for the time being.                                |
|                                                                           |
| Go back to the base of the large tree with vines.  Look in FPV at the     |
| trunk of the tree.  Direct your gaze upward, along the trunk, until the   |
| branch that the backpack was snagged on is in the middle of the screen on |
| the right side.  Now, look to the left (at the same level).  Hopefully,   |
| you will see three large yellow fruit.  Shoot one.  Collect the RUSSIAN   |
| FALSE MANGO and D MED.  If you can't find these, an easier place to see   |
| them is the area with the Reticulated Pythons, southwest of this location |
| (see below).                                                              |
|                                                                           |
| To make this easier, equip the SONAR (L2 side).  Send a ping by pressing  |
| L3.                                                                       |
|                                                                           |
| To the southwest of the large tree is a clump of grass (near the diagonal |
| log).  In the middle of the clump is a RETICULATED PYTHON.                |
|                                                                           |
| To the north of the large tree, at the boundary between bare ground and   |
| the grass is a GIANT ANACONDA.  PPK (punch punch kick) from a step away   |
| to kill the anaconda.  Or, you can lay prone, and stab it with the knife  |
| by pressing (S) fully with the KNIFE equipped.  Or, you can tranquilize   |
| it.  Although ammo won't be problem in the Virtuous Mission, I'd          |
| recommend either the first two to conserve ammo (a good habit).           |
|                                                                           |
| Head back south to Snake's insertion point.  Crawl under that horizontal  |
| log, and, in the clump of grass to the north of Snake's insertion point   |
| are two TREE FROGs.  Lay prone then crawl near the middle of the clump.   |
| Stab one (or both) by pressing (S) fully.  Crawl north to find a          |
| SIBERIAN INK CAP.  Knife it.  Or, make Snake stand up, then PPK in the    |
| direction of the mushroom.  The Ink Cap can be found at the base of two   |
| more trees -- at the base of the tree near the diagonal log, at the base  |
| of the tree to the left of the eastern incline.                           |
|                                                                           |
| Stand up (if not already), and head west.  There is a log lying           |
| horizontally.  Get atop by pressing (T).  PPK the RUSSIAN OYSTER MUSHROOM |
| and drop on the west side of the log.  There is a RETICULATED PYTHON.     |
| Slash it with the knife by tapping (S).  Head further west to find        |
| another RETICULATED PYTHON.  To the west of the python is {MK22 AMMO}.    |
| As mentioned before, if you couldn't find the Russian False Mangoes, the  |
| tree in the middle of this area has plenty.                               |
|                                                                           |
| After getting the snakes, head east to the insertion point.  You can      |
| use the action button to climb atop the log again, or you can roll over   |
| it.  Run toward the log, and before reaching it, press (X) to roll.       |
| Continue heading east.  There will be another clump of grass.  This is at |
| the base of an incline.  Head up the incline.  Near the middle of the     |
| incline is a patch of bare earth.  Time to practice some stalking.        |
|                                                                           |
| Be vewwy vewwy qwiet.  We're hunting.... magpies.  o_O.                   |
|                                                                           |
| While stalking, keep to the left side of the incline.  When Snake is at   |
| the base of the thin trees, switch to the MK22.  If you want both, be     |
| sure to re-attach the suppressor.  Aim in FPV at Snake's feet.  Slightly  |
| north of Snake's position, there will be movement in the grass.  When you |
| see the MAGPIE, shoot it with the MK22.  There are two of them.  If you   |
| can find the other one, quickly shoot it.  If not, just take the caged    |
| one.  It's not really worth the time or effort to get both.  Near the lip |
| of the ledge is {LF MED} -- life medicine.                                |
|                                                                           |
| Go down the ledge or roll off it.                                         |

Follow the bend of the path to the north.

Keep going north until you see the lake of mud.  Of doom!  Make your way to
the east, staying close to the elevated earth.  There is some {BUG JUICE}
between the gavial and trees.

Be careful of the other Indian gavial, hiding in the ferns to the east.  Near
the middle of the ferns, dangerously close to the gavial's tail, are
[GRENADES].

Make your way to the place where the mud is thinnest.  Roll to the north,
over the mud, and between the two gavials on the island.  At the base of the
trees' southern face, is some {MK22 AMMO}.

To the west, across the mud, is a {SP/MK22}, the MK22 suppressor.

Head to the north, across the mud.  Follow the slight bend of the path to the
next area.

If you want food, head back to the mud.

Watch the cutscene and listen to the radio sequence.

There are a few KGB sentries patrolling the area.

If you want the [SVD - Sniper Rifle], immediately after the radio call, go
down the small decline, and head to the east.  This can also be done after
taking care of the first sentry.

Note that the FPV button for the SVD is L1.

Immediately north of the starting position is a horizontal hollow log.  In it
is some {BUG JUICE}.  If you wish, you can tranq the sentry from within the
log.  Or, you can do the following.

Head to the northeast to the large patch of grass.  Lay down in the grass by
the trees to get a 90% camo index.  Wait until the guard passes in a
clockwise fashion and has his back to Snake.

Time to practice some CQC.  Equip the MK22.  Stalk behind the KGB soldier.
When Snake is close, press and hold (O) -- but don't press all the way down.
You can interrogate him, slam him to the ground, or slit his throat.

Instead of grabbing the soldier, you could CQC slam him by pressing (O)
lightly and flicking the left analog stick downward.

After taking care of the first enemy, head to the north to find a patch of
grass.  There is a fork in the path.  To the north is another patch of
grass.  Further north is an enemy patrolling around some trees.  There is
a hollowed stump with [GRENADES] within it.

The fork leading east has some bare earth.  There's a large tree with vines
on the north side of this path.  On the opposite side of the path is a large
trunk lying horizontally.  Climb over the trunk to find some [STUN
GRENADES].

Further east is a fallen log lying north/south.  Roll over this, and take
cover in the grass.  Look to the northeast to find another enemy sentry.
Tranq him from afar.

To the far east is a hollowed stump.  Within the cavity is {MK22 AMMO}.

North of this stump is another horizontal hollow log.  Get the item within;
they're {THERMAL GOGGLES}.

Northwest of the thermal goggles, and guarding the exit to the north is yet
another KGB soldier.

If you want food, take care of the soldier guarding the exit and head west.

| called YABOLOKO MOLOKO.                                                   |

| After getting the yaboloko, make sure that all of the KGB soldiers are    |
| incapacitated.  Head to the south where the fork in the path is.  There   |
| is a golova tree (with fruit hanging from the branches).  Below the       |

| You can get the birds by sniping with the thermal goggles equipped, or    |
| use a grenade.  The latter is easier, in my opinion.  Either way, Snake   |
| will be able to dine on a SUNDA WHISTLING-THRUSH.                         |

Watch the cutscene.  You know what Snake was smirking about, right?  Shoot
down the hornet's nest.  Watch as the KGB sentry run across the bridge,
causing two others (on the bridge) and another sentry to follow suit, as the
hornets harass them.  There is another Baltic Hornet Nest to the north.

Head to the north and cross the bridge.  Make sure to do the following as
quickly as you can, before the guards return.

In the northern cliff face, under the bridge, is a niche.  There are two ways
to get here.  One is to slide off the left side of the bridge, which causes
Snake to hang.  Try a drop/catch by pressing (X) then mash (T) to grab hold
of the branch.  Climb onto the branch by pressing (T), then make your way
into the niche.

The other, safer way would be to continue on the path to the north, then
head west.  Follow the western wall to the south.  When Snake reaches the
cliff face, lean against the cliff face and side step to the right.  If Snake
slips and hangs from the cliff, don't worry!  Move Snake in the appropriate
direction and climb up when there's enough room.

Either way, grab the [XM16].  There is also some {MK22 AMMO} and
{PENTAZEMIN}.

Make your way west along the cliff face.  

Pause, and use sonar to check if there are any sentries returning.  If there
are, wait until three of them cross the bridge.  The last one will guard the
exit area to the north, as well as the passage along the west side.  Wait
until his back is to Snake, then take care of him as needed.

If the sentries don't return, then head north.

Watch the cinematic.                                        _______

Press START, and access the map.  Make note of the         |   |---|
facility.  Sokolov's position is marked by an 'X.'      ___|_3_|___|  C
Notice the 'X' is within an outline similar to      A  |1mm    |
the ASCII representation (as shown to the right).      |       |
                                                       |s      |
There will be three guards sweeping the perimeter,      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ 
and three guards sweeping 
the interior (the latter            B
marked as '1,' '2,' and '3').                       +-----------------------+
                                                    | Legend:   s = Shotgun |
One perimeter guard goes north/south to the west    |          mm = stairs  |
of the facility ('A').  Another goes east/west      |           r = LF MED  |
to the south of the facility ('B').  The last       +-----------------------+
perimeter guard goes north/south to the east of
the facility ('C').

There are numerous large drums filled with flammable fluid in the area.  They
will explode when shot at by a lethal killing weapon (i.e., SVD, XM16).  Some
can be rolled; these are the ones that lie horizontally.  The rollable ones
are at the following positions:
-- At the top of the stairs by '1.'
-- At the corner of the facility, south of '2.'
-- By a tree, south of 'C.'
-- North of the facility.

After the cutscene, use the Binoculars or SVD scope to make sure 'B' starts
to go east.  If you want, shoot 'A' with the SVD.

Or, you can tranq 'B' in the stomach.  While waiting for him to be knocked
out, make note of a hole in the brick wall on the right side.  Crawl through
the hole into the grass.  Crawl until Snake is in the grass, at the corner of
the wire fence.  If 'A' is still alive, tranq him.  By now, 'B' should be
asleep.

Near '1' are a couple of items.  Notably, the [M37 - Shotgun], marked as 's.'
If you want to get this, read this paragraph.  If not, continue onto the next
paragraph.  After taking out 'B,' lie in wait in the grass by the brick wall.
Once the opportunity arises, tranq or CQC '1.'  There are several large metal
boxes in the southwest area of the facility.  The M37 can be found at the
base of the west side of these boxes.  There also a couple more items up the
stairs (marked by 'mm') -- {XM16 AMMO} and {SP/XM16}, the suppressor for
the XM16.  Northeast of '2' and north of '3' is a {LF MED} (marked by 'r').

Continue east along the periphery of the wire fence.  Follow the fence north,
then east again.  Quickly go into the grassy patch.  Tranq 'C.'

Make note of the ladder on the wall of the facility.  Climb the ladder.  Once
on the roof, head south.  Roll over, or drop from the, southern lip of the
roof.  Head toward the door.

When you open doors, it depends on the amount of pressure applied to the
left analog stick.  Since it's pressure sensitive, the doors can either be
opened slowly or slammed open.  It's best to stalk in the direction of the
door to open it slowly.

As long as there is NO ALERT mode, Snake will make contact with Sokolov.

Watch the cutscenes and radio conversations.

(b^_^)b Nice hand gesture, Ocelot.  I'm talking about the pointing at Snake
with his fingers, like this:

Get the M37, XM16 ammo and suppressor and life medicine, if you want.

There is a new food item, if desired.

Be sure to shake down Ocelot.  Do so by unequipping the MK22, then pick up
Ocelot by using (S).  You will obtain a {MOUSETRAP}.

Equip the mousetrap in your backpack (weapons side).  Go back to where Snake
found Sokolov.  In that room, take note of the locker in the southwest
corner.  Lay the mousetrap in the middle of the room by pressing (S).  The
mousetrap will remain there until Operation Snake Eater.  Just don't crawl
over it.  Otherwise, Snake will pick it up.

If you don't lay the mousetrap, you'll have to wait a while (into Operation
Snake Eater) to get another one.  Mousetraps are the only means to catch the
elusive Tsuchinoko.

Head south, back into

I'm going to suggest calling SigInt for some humorous radio conversations,
so, if you want to hear these in the future, I'd recommend calling him two or
three times at the beginning of Operation Snake Eater, to get them out of the
way.  The first convo is his introduction.  The second is about the Davy
Crocketts.  The third is about the Camo Index.

Call SigInt while wearing "Naked" camo.  It's called a zipper, Snake.

Enjoy the M1911 pistol while you can.  Also, if you didn't lay the mousetraps
earlier, notice that you don't have them anymore!

During Operation Snake Eater, you may have to use the CURE menu often.  As
such, I'll point out the medicinal plants.  Knife or PPK them.  This first
area has all four medicinal plants.  How convenient!

If you have been eating all of the plants and animals as Snake has come
across them, go to the CURE menu, press R1 to see Snake's injuries (there
should be none, right now).  Press R2 to see Snake's medical history.  Press
Right on the Dpad to see Snake's food history.  Refer to the PREVIOUS FOOD
ITEMS checklist below and compare the items.  If you have more items in
Snake's food history, that's a good sign (there aren't any Sunda Whistling-
Thrush nor any Indian Gavials in this area).

If you don't want to collect medicinal and food items, head north through
the narrow gap, and continue to the northwest.  Otherwise, happy hunting!

| FOOD! |  To the north of the yabloko moloko tree, at its base, there is   |
+-------+  an OTTON FROG.  If you can't find it, use the sonar.             |
|                                                                           |
| Head north through the narrow gap.  Make note of the horizontal log in    |
| the middle of the area.  It has Russian Oyster mushrooms growing on it.   |
|                                                                           |
| There will be a JAPANESE FLYING SQUIRREL gliding from tree to tree in     |
| this area.  While it's climbing a tree, shoot it.  It can be difficult to |
| find this rodent.  So, use the sonar and kill all the animals in the      |
| area.  The last dot should be the flying squirrel.                        |
|                                                                           |
| Now stand at the southern tip of the horizontal log.  Look to the         |
| northwest, at the base of the thick stump of a trunk.  There is a large   |
| cluster of mushrooms.  This is the BAIKAL SCALY TOOTH.                    |

| CURE! |  When you get control of Snake, look to the left, at the base of  |
+-------+  the rock wall.  There is a shin-high tall grassy reed-like plant |
|          with pink flowers.  This is used to make a SPLINT.               |

| Now stand at the southern tip of the horizontal log.  Look to the         |
| northwest, at the base of the thick stump of a trunk.  There is a large   |

| Stand at the northern tip of the horizontal log.  Look to the northwest,  |
| at the base of a slender tree.  There is a shin-high tall grassy          |

Make sure you have as many items as you want from the previous area.  Once
Snake rolls or walks off the ledge, Snake can't go back to Dremuchij East.  

If you got the SVD in Virtuous Mission, this area should look familiar.

Make your way to the northwest.  As you go over the incline, you will hear a
horse neigh.  If you don't want the new food item, continue west.

+-------+-------------------------------------------------------------------+
| FOOD! |  After you hear the horse, continue to the base of the incline.   |

Why hello, Boss!  Thanks for shooting my drone!  And disassembling my M1911!

+=============================+
| Number of enemies:  Two (2) |
+=============================+

The explosion will gain the attention of a couple GRU soldiers.

There are a couple ways to progress from here.

++++++++++++++  The first way is to lie in wait against the rock in the
+            +  north, near the cluster of slender trees.  This cluster is
+ OPTION ONE +  adjacent to a bright green patch.
+            +
++++++++++++++  Two GRU soldiers will investigate the drone.  Before one of
                them tries to radio into headquarters, the other will say,
"What's this?!?"  If they succeed in calling into HQ, there will be a
CAUTION phase, and more enemies will appear.  So, it's best to get rid of
them quickly.

When both are standing still, quickly stand up and throw a stun grenade
at their feet.  Be sure to look in a different direction when the bright
light flashes (look down at Snake's feet).  If you don't, Snake will be
blinded.

While they're dazed, either CQC slam or roll into them.  If you choose to CQC
slam them, be sure to unequip the stun grenades.  Either way, they'll both be
knocked unconscious.  Head north into Dolinovodno.

+-------+-------------------------------------------------------------------+
| FOOD! |  Before you head north, and you're collecting food, at least get  |
+-------+  the KING COBRA.  The easiest place to find one is under the      |
|          Golova tree.  There are a couple more in the east, north of      |
| where the thermal goggles were in Virtuous Mission.  The goggles are not  |
| there in Operation Snake Eater.                                           |
|                                                                           |
| Stab the King Cobra before it bites you.  If it does bite you, go to the  |
| CURE menu and use SERUM.                                                  |
|                                                                           |

If you're going north into Dolinovodno, skip to (OPSE-DOLO)

++++++++++++++  The other way is to head south into Dremuchij Swampland as
+            +  soon as you regain control of Snake.
+ OPTION TWO +
+            +  If you want, you can get the King Cobra while the two GRU
++++++++++++++  soldiers are knocked out.  If not, don't worry -- there is
                going to be another opportunity very soon to collect the
King Cobra.


I'm going to outline the second way since there are a couple food items to
obtain.

Nothing has really changed in this area.  There aren't any items, however,
so continue south. 

If you want the Hornet Nest (and ointment), you can knife it.  Be sure to
quickly roll into the mud, and swiftly make it to solid land.  This will
minimize the harassment from the hornets.

If Snake is in the mud too long, leeches will attach themselves to Snake.
You will hear a somewhat odd sucking/slurping sound when a leech attaches
itself to Snake.

This will cause Snake's stamina to drain.  Go into the CURE menu, and burn
them off with the Cigar.

There are [GRENADES] and [STUN G] -- stun grenades -- at the insertion point
of Snake's Virtuous Mission (at the base of a cluster of trees).  As you may
recall, this is at the southern-most part of this area.

There are some [CHAFF G] -- chaff grenades -- to the west, where the
Reticulated Pythons are located.

Nothing to see here.  Continue north.

Remember, if Snake is in the mud too long, leeches will attach themselves to
Snake.  This will cause Snake's stamina to drain.  Go into the CURE menu,
and burn them off with the Cigar.

Welcome back.

The two GRU soldiers will be patrolling this area.  One will be patrolling
in the northwest under the yabloko moloko trees.  The other will be
patrolling in the northeast, where the thermal goggles were in the
Virtuous Mission.  NOTE:  They are NOT here in Operation Snake Eater.

In my opinion, it is easier to go to the northeast and wait in the grass
by the large tree (on the east side of the large rocky outcropping).  Once
the guard turns his back on Snake, run up to him and CQC slam him.

Run and roll to the north, then crawl to the base of the large tree on the
right.

It's a shame Snake can't throw anything to bring down that Hornet Nest again.

Patiently wait until the GRU soldier starts to cross the bridge.

If you want to take a risk, equip a ration that Snake doesn't like
(i.e., tree frog) as a weapon, and toss it toward the bridge.  This will
distract the GRU soldier.

Roll over the embankment and quickly run up to the enemy.  CQC slam him.

Yet another option would be to briefly get the attention of the guard by
crouching.  The enemy will become curious.  Don't panic!  Lay prone again
and wait until he turns his back and heads up the ramp to the left.  While
he's making his way to where Snake was, quickly, roll over the embankment.

Head to the north and cross the bridge.  Make sure to do the following as
quickly as you can, before the GRU soldier regains consciousness.

In the northern cliff face, under the bridge, is a niche.  There are two ways
to get here, as you may remember.  One is to slide off the left side of the
bridge, which causes Snake to hang.  Try a drop/catch by pressing (X) then
mash (T) to grab hold of the branch.  Climb onto the branch by pressing (T),
then make your way into the niche.

The other, safer way would be to continue on the path to the north, then
hide in the grass.  Look to the west.  Guarding the pathway south, along
the western wall, is a GRU soldier.  When he turns around and walks to the
south, run up and CQC slam him.

Head south.  When Snake reaches the cliff face, lean against the cliff face
and side step to the right.  If Snake slips and hangs from the cliff, don't
worry!  Move Snake in the appropriate direction and climb up when there's
enough room.

Either way, grab the [SMOKE GRENADES].  There is also some {LF MED}.  In
addition, there is the <RAINDROP CAMO>.

Make your way west along the cliff face.  If you dropped off the side of the
bridge, pause, and use sonar to check the position of the guard patrolling
the exit area to the north, as well as the passage along the west side.
Wait until his back is to Snake then CQC slam him.

If you took the other, safer way, then head north.

There aren't any enemy sentries this time.  But there are a LOT of items in
this area.  Collect them before going into the room where Sokolov was held
captive.

As before, there are numerous large drums filled with flammable fluid in the
area.  They will explode when shot at by a lethal killing weapon.  Some
can be rolled; these are the ones that lie horizontally.  The rollable ones
are at the following positions:
-- At the top of the stairs by 'A.'
-- At the corner of the facility, south of 'g.'
-- By a tree, 'J.'
-- North of the facility, by 'Z.'
                                                            
At the top of the stairs ('mm') is the [AK-47],             Z
marked as 'A.'                                              _______
                                                           |g B|T S|     J
To the north of the facility, by one of the rollable       |   |---|
large drums, is the <ZOMBIE FACE PAINT>, marked as      ___|___|__d|
'Z.'                                                   |Amm    |
                                                       |       |
To the east, by a tree and metal crates is some        |       |
{BUG JUICE}, marked as 'J.'                             ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ 

[SMOKE GRENADES], 'g,' can be found in the northwest of the facility, by the
corner of the wire fence.

East of the smoke grenades, and above some wooden crates is
{CARDBOARD BOX A}, marked as 'B.'  For a funny radio conversation, equip the
box and call SigInt.  You may have to call him a few times to get the convo
I'm talking about -- it begins with "Uh, Snake ... what are you doing?"

If you equip a cardboard box while going up an incline, Snake will go
faster.  His gait is lengthened and he covers much more distance.  Try it
out on the stairs to the west.

In the area immediately south of Sokolov's holding room is a {MINE DETECTOR},
tucked in the corner, marked as 'd.'

After enjoying the peace of the silent evening, go through the door into the
room where Sokolov was held.

Crawl over the mousetrap in the middle of the room to pick it up.  If you
cannot find it, consult your map in the Survival Viewer.  It will appear as a
square if nothing is caught, or as a filled-in square if something is caught.

Also don't forget to pick up the {THERMAL GOGGLES}!

They are in the locker in the southwest corner of the room.  This locker is
as wide as Snake's shoulders and opens to the east.

Reminder:  DO NOT FORGET TO GET THE THERMAL GOGGLES FROM THE LOCKER.

After picking up the mousetrap (as well as any caught animals) and thermal
goggles, go out the door.

Watch the cutscene as Eva gives Snake the <SCIENTIST CAMO>, then SAVE.

Watch another cinematic as Eva makes a radio call.

+===============================+
| Number of enemies:  Eight (8) |
+===============================+

Good morning!  Well, it was, until the Ocelot unit appeared.  There are eight
(8) Ocelot soldiers patrolling the area.

This whole part will be in EVASION mode.  This does NOT count as an ALERT.
However, it is possible to trigger an ALERT if an Ocelot unit member spots
Snake.  They have VERY keen vision, so be careful!

There will be four Ocelots storming the room, marked        _______ 
as '4.'  They will come in two groups of two.              |   |  s|  A
                                                           |   |---|
On the roof, a sniper will stop at the four             ___|___| 4 |
corners.  He's marked by 's.'                          | mm    |ŻŻŻ
                                                    C  |       |      B
The Ocelot soldier at 'A' will move a short            |_______|
distance north/south.

The Ocelot at 'B' will move a short distance east/west below '4' and
north/south south of 'A.'

'C' will move north/south.


Once you get control of Snake, crawl under the bed next to the wall, and
face the door.

Go to your backpack, equip stun grenades and the MK22.  If you're going for
no kills, deselect the M1911; otherwise, you might accidentally kill
someone.

Once they're knocked unconscious, they will never wake up!

Hopefully, you have at least two stun grenades.  Equip the stun grenades.
After you hear "MOVE!" twice, an Ocelot unit member will use a M37 to shoot
the door down.  After the second "MOVE!" press and hold (S) to get ready to
throw a stun grenade.

A soldier will toss a stun grenade into the room.

Throw one of your own at their feet.  Turn to the left to face the wall, and
minimize the momentary blindness.

Sometimes, your flash grenade will take out two people.  Other times, four.
If it's the former, throw another at the duo by the door.  If you don't have
any more stun grenades, tranq them with the MK22.

Stand to the left of the bed, by the wall.  Go into FPV, then have Snake
stand on his tip toes by pressing R2 and L2 simultaneously.  Take aim at
and tranq the Ocelot member by the tree at position 'A.'

Open the trapdoor that Eva used by pressing (T).  Drop down, and crawl to the
south.  Head toward the vent, but do not crawl through.  Guard 'B' will be
sweeping across.  Shoot him wherever you can and let the tranquilizer take
effect.

Crawl out of the vent.  Lean against the corner of the building.  Use the
camera to your advantage by rotating it around Snake.

If you want, you can back up a couple steps, and toss a SMOKE grenade
(pretty much) vertically onto the roof.  This will distract him.  Or, you can
wait until he moves to the northeast.  Either way, roll quickly to where 'A'
was.  Lie prone and take cover in the grass.  Tranq the sniper.

One left.

Before the last Ocelot member is eliminated, let's gather some items from
the fallen foes.  The Ocelots will disappear after Snake eliminates all of
them and approaches the northeast for a cutscene.  So....

Unequip your weapon, and shake down 'A' a couple times.  'A' will drop a
{SP/MK22} and a set of [CLAYMORES].

Climb up the ladder to shake the sniper.  Be careful not to drop him over the
edge of the roof, lest he die.  He'll drop {AK AMMO} and a {BANDAGE}.

Drop down from the southern lip of the roof, to the quartet of Ocelots.

One of the ones closest to the door will drop {AK AMMO} and a {BATTERY}.  The
other one close to the door will drop a {SP/M1911}, the suppressor for the
M1911 pistol, and {PENTAZEMIN}.

One of the ones farthest from the door will drop a {SUTURE KIT} and a
{BATTERY}.  The other one farthest from the door will drop a RUSSIAN RATION
and [WP G], white phosphorus grenades.

Guard 'B' will drop {STYPTIC} and R. NOODLES, instant noodles.

Time to get the last guy, 'C.'  Head west to the stairs.  There is a vent in
the brick wall, opposite the base of the stairs.  You can see the enemy's
feet.  Lay prone by the base of the stairs.  Shoot the feet or legs and wait
for the tranq to take effect.  Or, if you have another stun grenade, toss it
at the enemy's feet.

Go around the brick wall and shake him down twice to get {C MED} and another
Russian ration.

Did you get the thermal goggles?

Head to the northeast by 'A' and watch the cutscene.

+------+--------------------------------------------------------------------+
| NOTE |  If you want, you can go south to Dolinovodno or Dremuchij North,  |
+------+  Swampland and South to catch some food.  Some food items,         |
|         however, will not be there.  Personally, I'd recommend getting    |
| the four Baltic Hornet Nests (but not eating them).  Otherwise, head      |

There are two exits to the north.  To get to one, Snake has to make his way
across the swamp.

Snake can swim in the water.  Press (X) to go underwater.  Tap (X) to swim
underwater while using the left analog stick to guide where Snake goes.  If
you want to surface, tilt upwards and tap (X).

The water in the swamp is infested with Indian Gavials.  If Snake happens
upon one while swimming in the water, the Gavial will bite onto Snake, and do
a barrel roll.  Errm...  Death roll.  So, be careful not to get close to a
Gavial.

Leeches are also present in the lake and will latch onto Snake very quickly.
You will hear a somewhat odd sucking/slurping sound when a leech attaches
itself to Snake.  To prevent this from happening, use the {BUG JUICE} from
Rassvet.

Leeches will drain stamina.  So, keep an eye on that stamina bar!

It is also a good idea to periodically check the CURE menu for leeches.  If
leeches are attached to Snake, use the cigar to burn them off.

After Snake enters Chyornyj Prud, head to the west along the shore.  Use the
thermal goggles (you got them, right?) to find some {AK AMMO}, [WP G], and
[SMOKE GRENADES].

Use the Bug Juice.  Continue along the western edge of the swamp.  If you
want to go through this area faster, have Snake swim.  

Either way, there will be a couple logs laying horizontally across a gap in
the rocks.  Go underwater, and swim through the opening under the logs.
Continue along this outlet until Snake is on solid ground.  In the water,
there are [GRENADES] and {MK22 AMMO}.

Check the CURE menu for any leeches.

Head to the north.  Equip the thermal goggles.  If you see a brightly
colored patch, make your way around it.  It's a booby-trap.  This one is a
bottomless pit.  There's another booby-trap (a spiked log triggered by a
trip-wire) that Snake will come across if he goes along the eastern route.

After Eva calls, head to the northeast until you find a large tree with vines
on its trunk.  Climb up the tree by pressing (T).  Refill your stamina, then
go along the branch.  Swing down onto the branch by pressing (T).  While
Snake is hanging, move along the rope to the east.  Angle the camera to look
down onto Snake.  When Snake is above another rope that crosses below him at
a diagonal, press (X) to drop, then mash (T) to catch onto the bottom rope.
Head northeast along the rope.  When Snake is above an island with a floating
box, press (X) to drop.  That box is the {CROC CAP}.

Move toward the southern edge of the island.  Drop onto the lip below and
pick up {M1911 AMMO} and [STUN G].

Use the Bug Juice again, roll into the water, and head northeast onto shore.
Go along the shore to the east.  When you're near the far right of the area,
equip the thermal goggles, and venture east into the water a bit.  It might
help to submerge Snake.  You will find [CHAFF G], and <GA-KO CAMO>.

Head north.  If you look carefully, you can see the trip-wire of the booby-
trap.  If you can't see it, use the thermal goggles.  Shoot the wire to
make the spiked log drop and wait for it to stop swinging, then continue
north.  Or you can simply roll over the trip-wire and go north.

+-------+-------------------------------------------------------------------+
| FOOD! |  After you enter the area, go west along the rock wall.  There is |
+-------+  a patch of ferns.  There, you can find the CORAL SNAKE.  A       |
|          little north of this position, a few feet from the shore, is a   |
| MILK SNAKE.  They look similar, so check the FOOD menu to see you have    |
| both.                                                                     |

| Approach the shoreline.  Equip the thermal goggles and look in the water  |
| nearby to find the small POISON DART FROG.  If you have keen eyes, you    |
| won't need the thermal goggles -- just look for the small red and blue    |
| frog.                                                                     |

| Go into the water along the western edge.  Swim under the log into the    |
| outlet.  With any gun besides the MK22, shoot the AROWANA.  Tranqing it   |
| will merely make it fall asleep (O_o), and can't be collected by Snake.   |
|                                                                           |

I'm going to divide Bolshaya Past South               X  X
into five segments.  'X' will represent               NnNn
the exits.  'N' will represent the north              M  M
middle segment.  'M' is the middle middle             MMMM
section, while 'S' is the south middle                SSsS
segment.  'E' will represent the entrances            E  E
into Bolshaya Past South.

There are electrified fences between the sections.  When the thermal goggles
are used, they glow white hot.  Each of these fences have a rectangular
control box which also appear white with the thermal goggles equipped.  If
you shoot these, the power will short out and the fences will no longer be
electrified.

Both fences between 'S' and 'E' have boxes on the west side.

The 'S'/'M' box in the west is located on the east side.

The west 'M'/'N' box is located on the west side, while the east 'M'/'N' box
is located on the east side.

It doesn't matter which exit out of Chyornyj Prud you took; both electrified
fences between 'S' and 'E' have a place to crawl under, on the right side of
each.  The west 'S'/'E' fence has a hole cut out under a tree, while there
is a burrow under the east 'S'/'E' fence.

Welcome to the 'S' section.  If you use the thermal goggles, you'll see
some rope between a couple trees.  These are non-lethal booby-traps.  They
will, however, signal Snake's presence to the enemy, which will result in a
CAUTION mode (unless all of the enemies are taken out).  The approximate area
is marked by the lower case 's' and 'n.'

Snake, be careful!  There are claymore mines around there.  Use a Mine
Detector!  Or better yet, the thermal goggles!  Why?  Because the former
uses audio to alert you of the mines, while the latter makes it much easier
to see them.

There are ten (10) claymore mines spread east/west along the 'S' section.
Crawl over them to pick them up.  If you don't, and run over them, you'll get
injured and burned.  And will cause a CAUTION mode, to boot.  You can shoot
them, but make sure there aren't guards that can hear the explosion.  Be
careful of the claymore by the large tree with trunk vines near 'S' and 'M.'

Climb up that tree and go along to the tip of the branch.  Drop down.  Kill
the Great Dane with a single silenced head shot.  This will draw the
attention of a GRU soldier from the east.  Lay in the ferns north of where
the dog was, and tranq him when he gets close.

Head to the east and avoid the leech-infested mud.  Go along the eastern edge
of the mud to the north.  The rock wall seems to have formed some steps.
Climb up these steps by pressing (T) near the higher edge.  Lean against the
rock wall and side-step toward the north.  When the ledge is wide enough
(i.e., twice the width of the walkway Snake just traversed), it's safe to
stop leaning against the rock wall.  Crawl north to the edge of the ledge to
obtain the <SPLITTER CAMO>.

While laying prone, tranq the two guards west of Snake's position.  You can
get closer, but be careful of the noise-making booby-trap trip-wire.  This
should be done quickly.  I recommend tranqing the farthest (western) one
first before tranqing the other.  The CAUTION mode will be cancelled if done
fast enough.

Head to where those two were.  Lay prone again, and tranq the GRU soldier to
the north.  Go through the gap in the electrified fences into the 'N'
section, and head west along the fence.  You should come across a large
hollowed stump.  Within the stump is the <CHOCO CHIP CAMO>.

For a funny radio conversation, don the CHOCO CHIP CAMO and call SigInt.
Mmmm .... scones.

Head to the GRU soldier you last tranqed (to the east).  Shake him down a
couple times to get {MK22 AMMO} and {SP/MK22}.  Then head to the northeast
exit.

| FOOD! |  South of the large tree with vines on the trunk, there is a very |
+-------+  sunny patch amidst the claymore mines.  Lay the mousetrap in     |
|          the sunny patch after picking up the claymores.                  |
|                                                                           |
| It takes several minutes to catch the elusive snake, so go ahead and      |
| climb the tree, drop down and kill the Great Dane.  Tranq the inquisitive |
| GRU soldier.                                                              |

| Get the <SPLITTER CAMO> and the <CHOCO CHIP CAMO>.  Shake down the guard  |
| for the MK22 ammo and suppressor.  If you still haven't heard a chime,    |
| shake down the other guards for items.                                    |
|                                                                           |
| Hopefully, by now, you should hear a chime.  If you shot the fence's      |
| control box, don't fret.  Go back to the area where the Great Dane was.   |
| South of that position, you'll notice a log lying diagonally, southwest   |
| to northeast.                                                             |
|                                                                           |
| Using the log as an arrow, go from the southwest tip to the fence.  Lie   |
| prone and crawl along into the fence eastward.  Eventually, Snake will    |
| find a hole in the fence.                                                 |
|                                                                           |
| If you still have yet to hear the chime, I would recommend going back to  |
| Chyornyj Prud momentarily.  Once in Chyornyj Prud, use Bug Juice and swim |
| in the swamp to the other exit.  Then, return to Bolshaya Past South.     |
|                                                                           |
| You should be greeted by a chime.  That means that something has been     |
| caught in the mousetrap.  And that something is the TSUCHINOKO!           |
|                                                                           |
| DO. NOT. EAT. IT.  If you do, you can't get the IFP (Infinite ammo Face   |
| Paint).  For some congratulatory messages, call Para-medic.  I had Snake  |
| eat it in a second play through after getting IFP, and Snake thinks it's  |
| delicious!                                                                |

+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+


As you may notice, there is only one food item (particularly, fauna) in this
area.  This is why I suggest you catch the Tsuchinoko here.  I've managed to
catch one in other areas (until Sokrovenno), but this area is the easiest, in
my opinion.

It's been found that the probability of finding the Tsuchinoko is based on the
following expression:

   1
-------     where n = number of animals in the area
 n + 1

So, in Bolshaya Past South, after killing the Great Dane, n = 0, which makes
the expression

   1                    1
-------  which equals  --- which equals 100%.  It just takes some time.
 0 + 1                  1

Another popular spot is Graniny Gorki South, where n is almost 20.  You would
have to kill ALL of the animals in that area to get the same probability
found here.

| Number of enemies:  Six (6) |

Recommended Face paint:  Splitter
Recommended Camouflage:  Choco Chip

This small base has a main building with an electrified fence perimeter.
Immediately north of the building is a food storehouse.  Northeast of the
food storehouse is a machine gun turret.  There is another one to the south
of this position, southeast of the building.

To the east of the building is a helicopter.  Zoom in on the chopper with the
binoculars and call SigInt; Snake will coin the name "Hind."

In the northeast, there are two small buildings -- a medical storehouse and
an armory.

South of the building, there is a GRU guard walking east/west to the southern
machine gun turret.  Another is circling the Hind.  Yet another is standing
next to the southern entrance into the building.  A GRU guard, located to the
west, walks north/south.  There is a guard stationed at the northern machine
gun turret.  The sixth guard is located by the armory in the northeast.

The southern guard should be walking to the right.  Run in a wide, clockwise
curving arc then CQC slam him.  Tranq him afterwards.  Quickly drag and drop
him into the trough.  Head to the south, then west along the rock wall.

Once you see the gap in the electrified fence by the southwestern gun turret,
go through it, and head into the trough.  While in the trough, crawl to the
north, under the wooden bridge to find <SNOW FACE PAINT>.

After getting the face paint, crawl north out from under the wooden bridge.
Look to the west to check the position of the guard there.  Wait until he
heads back north, or you can tranq him.  If you tranqed him, shake him down
a couple times to get {AK-47 AMMO} and a {SP/MK22}.

Approach the building to the east.  Through the wire fence, tranq the guard
by the door.

Equip the box and go through the door.  Head up through the room, then into
the next room to the right.  Below the window, south of some wooden crates,
there is a {SP/M1911}.

While still hiding in the box, go between the middle and southern bed.  Under
the middle bed is {M1911 AMMO}.  Under the southern bed is a {MOUSETRAP}.

If the guard circling the Hind sees you, don't panic.  Equip the box and
stay still until he investigates.  After he turns around, pop out of the box
and tranq him.  Or, you could simply run into the other room.

Head back through the two previous doors, back to the southern entrance into
the building.  Perpendicular to the door is a ladder.  Climb the ladder, then
head to the northwest corner to find <WATER CAMO>.

Check the position of the soldier going around the Hind.  Tranq him in the
chest.

Roll onto the food storehouse to the north.  Tranq the guard at the northern
machine gun turret.  West of him, under the bridge of the trough, is some
{MK22 AMMO}.  If you go east along the trough, and after a couple
perpendicular turns, you can find a {BOOK}.

Head into the food storehouse to find a RUSSIAN RATION, CALORIE MATE and
another {MOUSETRAP}.

This next part is optional; if you want, you can get the items from the
medical storehouse and armory and wreak some havoc.  Otherwise head north to
the exit.  (If you want, prior to actually exiting, change to your favorite
face paint and camouflage).

+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
(NOTE:  If you didn't catch the Tsuchinoko in Bolshaya Past South, and if
        you want, you can hunt down all the rats, set a mousetrap, and wait.)

Before you get the items in the medical storehouse and armory, I'd recommend
checking to see if the southern machine gun turret guard is still knocked
out.  If there is only one or two Z's, tranq him again.

Tranq or CQC the guard circling the Hind.  Head to the northeast.

Go through the electrified fence and enter the medical storehouse to find a
{BANDAGE}, {ANTIDOTE}, {LF MED}, and {D MED}.  Exit, and go clockwise around
the storehouse.

Slowly approach the armory to the northeast, and tranq the guard there.  Drag
his body to the west of the wooden crates.  The plan is to blow up some
buildings.  If a previously tranquilized/knocked out guard is caught in the
blast, it will count as a kill.

Go into the armory to find some {M1911 AMMO}, {AK-47 AMMO}, [WP G], [STUN G],
[GRENADES], and [TNT].

Time to wreak some havoc with the TNT.

If you blow up the armory, the enemies will run out of ammo for their
weapons quicker.

If you blow up the medical storehouse, they won't be able to treat themselves
for food poisoning or bites/stings from poisonous animals.  The latter will
cause them to die quicker.

If you blow up the food storehouse, enemies will go hungry; they will say as
such as Snake goes through enemy territory.  Also, they can get knocked out
much easier; for example, normally, Snake can roll into an enemy three times
before the guard passes out, but when the enemies are hungry, one roll will
KO them.

When the doors fall down, that means the enemies will be effected.  The
interiors of these buildings will be dark, and for some food storehouses,
their structural integrity will be severely compromised.

These types of buildings may have no doors.  Detonating a TNT charge in these
door-less buildings will have no effects on the enemies.

The effects of blowing up these buildings will only affect the areas near the
specific buildings.  If the areas are separated by a man-made or natural
obstacle, the soldiers won't be affected.  Same for the areas that have their
own armories, medical and food storehouses.

Equip the TNT and place one in the armory, medical and food storehouses.  Do
this by pressing (S).  To detonate the TNT, press (O).  If you place multiple
TNT charges after each other, they will detonate in the same order, with each
successive (O) press.

If you set a TNT charge without detonating it, and enter the next area, and
return, you will have forfeited the TNT charge.

You know that Hind just sitting there?  You can blow it up with the TNT.  Or,
you can shoot it with the northeast machine gun turret.  If all the guards
aren't asleep/dead, the latter will cause an ALERT phase.

HOWEVER!  If you do this, it makes an area later in the game more difficult.
Therefore, I'd recommend not blowing up the Hind.

After placing the TNT in the three buildings, head near the exit in the
north.  Stand behind a tree.  If you haven't already, detonate each TNT
charge.  If any guards are awake/not dead, there will be a CAUTION phase.
Don't worry about it and just blow up the buildings.

Stand up and head north.  (If you want, prior to actually exiting, change to
your favorite camouflage and face paint).

Rawr.

Did you pick your favorite camouflage and face paint?  Usually, I choose
Splitter camo and Zombie face paint.

Time for a boss.

A brief description of the environs, first.  Ocelot and Snake are separated
by a crevasse.  There are boulders strewn about and trees on both sides.

Snake can find some {AK-47 AMMO} south of the western rock.  {MK22 AMMO} and
[GRENADES] to the east, with {M1911 AMMO} to the southeast.  [WP G] can be
found in the climbable tree to the east.

There are also some animals.  I'd recommend tranqing or killing the snakes
as soon as possible.  If you have a couple cages open, you might as well
tranq them; see below for why.

Twelve shots.  This time he has twelve shots.  Like in MGS1, you can see how
many bullets Ocelot has left in the upper left under his life/stamina bars.
It won't count as a kill if you use lethal weapons (AK-47, M1911, WP and
regular grenades), but you won't receive his awesome camo if you do so.
Therefore, I recommend stamina killing him (i.e., draining his stamina).

This battle is pretty straight forward.  Take cover and use the MK22 without
the suppressor.  Ocelot will also take cover behind the rocks and tree.  He
will peek out from either side of the rocks and tree.

At the beginning of the fight, he'll fire bullets that ricochet once.
Near the end of the fight, the bullets will ricochet twice.  The former is
traced in green, while the latter is traced in red.

Aim for the head or chest.  Sometimes, you can shoot Ocelot's beret off his
head.  Try this when he's stationary.  This will buy you some time as he will
later pick up the beret; shoot him a couple times when he does so.

Try to make use of the tactical reload technique:  While in FPV, fire a shot,
tap R2 twice, fire another shot, repeat.  This will make the battle go by
faster.  Good luck!  And, remember, practice makes perfect.  :)

When Ocelot's soldiers fire at you, the Major will stand out in the open, so
brave the flying bullets and get in a couple of shots.

Ocelot, the arrogant bastard, will reload his single action army in the
middle of the battle, right in front of Snake.  There will be a short
cinematic of him doing so.  If you skip the cinematic, he will have to
reload during the fight itself, so press (X) when it starts, and get in a
couple more shots.  From now on, he'll take refuge behind the tree to reload.

When Ocelot is hiding, use bug juice (if you have any left), and shoot down
the Baltic Hornet Nest on Snake's side.  Pick it up and save it.

If you stand in the center, close to the edge of the crevice, Ocelot will be
happy to duel with you.  While he's getting ready, shoot him a couple times.

Some fun things to do, which are considered "Dirty tricks" by Ocelot:

-- Shoot the Baltic Hornet Nest on Ocelot's side.  The hornets will harass
   Ocelot, so get in a couple shots.  As expected, Ocelot will get pissed.
-- The snakes can be tranqed and used as weapons.  Equip them and throw them
   at Ocelot.  He won't be too happy with this.  He'll kill the snakes by
   stomping on them.
-- Throw stun and/or smoke grenades while Ocelot is taking refuge behind the
   tree.
-- Use a Fake Death Pill.  He will come close to check on Snake.  Use the
   Revival Pill and Ocelot will take cover.

These dirty tricks will distract Ocelot; take advantage of them and get in
some quick shots.

Wear the Croc Cap to get some ... feedback from Ocelot's troops.


Repeat the above until the fight is over.  You can't get his camo yet, but
watch the cutscene.  Can you feel the pain?

Save the game here if you want to hear Zero talk about James Bond.  "007 was
the biggest thing out of England since the Mayflower."  XD

Snake's vision will get used to the dark, so, if you want, you can wait for
his eyes to adjust.  Otherwise, use the thermal goggles.

Equip the thermal goggles and pick up <ANIMALS CAMO>.
I'll call this the "camo area."

This awesome camo will provide the benefits of full stamina (i.e., no hands
shaking when shooting weapons), despite the condition of the stamina bar;
however, if Snake's stamina is really low, his stomach will still growl.  In
addition, this camo will provide decent camouflage in desert colored areas.

This area has many branches, and can become as confusing as a maze.  I advise
you to periodically check the map if you're not good at mazes.

Head to the western wall, and follow it north.  You should be following a
narrow path.  Eventually, Snake will come across a small body of water.  If
you want some {M1911 AMMO} and {AK-47 AMMO}, equip the thermal goggles, and
swim to the bottom.

To the east, there is an underwater passage that leads to a dead end with a
RUSSIAN RATION.

Head north through the water.  Climb up onto the ledge.  Continue north along
this path to find more {AK-47 AMMO} and a {BATTERY}.

Head back south to the "camo area."

Head to the east along the southern wall.  This area has numerous Kenyan
Mangrove Crabs.  As such, I'll call this the "crab area."

From the center of the "crab area," go northwest.  This is yet another narrow
passage.  It terminates in a lagoon with twin waterfalls.  Head between the
waterfalls, and in an alcove, you will find a skeleton next to some [WP G]
and a [TORCH].

Equip the torch as a weapon.  You can swing it like a baseball bat with (O).

Head west of where you found the torch (on the opposite wall of the twin
waterfalls) through another narrow passageway.  Stay close to the wall on the
right, as the passageway will open up over the area where the battery was.
Continue along the ledge.

It seems like a dead end, but Snake can crawl under the rock.  Snake will
emerge into a widened, roughly rectangular area.  To the southeast are some
{C MED} and {SERUM}.

In the west wall of the rectangular area is a broad crawl space.  Follow this
tunnel to find a passageway, terminating in a large circle.  At the north of
the circle is some {AK-47 AMMO}.  To the south, after carefully going along
the periphery, are {NIGHT VISION GOGGLES}.

Drop down the hole in the middle.  This is the dead end with the ration from
before.  Swim through the underwater passage, then head south to the "camo
area."  Go back to the "crab area."

If you go northeast of the "crab area," you will find another long narrow
passage with {M1911 AMMO} and [GRENADES] at the dead-end next to another
skeleton.

Return once more to the "crab area."  Now that you have some decent
illumination and Snake's eyes are used to the dark, you can find a crawl
space in the northeast corner of the "crab area."

Crawl north along the tunnel.  Near the end of the tunnel, there is a
Taiwanese cobra.  Tranq/kill it before it bites you.  If it does bite Snake,
use serum in the CURE menu.

Snake will emerge above the twin waterfalls.  Immediately south of the
tunnel exit is some {SERUM}.

Head to the north along another narrow passageway, which will widen into a
large area.  Near a skeleton to the east is {MK22 AMMO} and {AK-47 AMMO}.
Northwest of the skeleton is some {BUG JUICE}.

If any bats are disrupted, use a sonar ping to placate them.

Continue north to the exit.

Upon entering this area, there will be a fork in the ... cave.

Take the way to the right.

After following the narrow passageway, Snake will come across a widened area
with a skeleton.  Next to it is {MK22 AMMO} and the [M37 - Shotgun].

After picking up the shotgun, crawl to the north.  Eventually, Snake can
stand in the passageway.  Go forward to get the <SNOW CAMO>.

Go and crawl to the north.  Follow the curving tunnel.  When Snake can
stand again, go to the south to find {M1911 AMMO}, {AK-47 AMMO}, and
[SMOKE GRENADES].

The area with the M1911 and AK ammo can be reached by taking the left fork
from before.

Watch the cutscene as the Pain makes his appearance.

The arena for the battle is roughly circular.  There is a large, flat rock
island in the middle of the arena where the Pain will stay.  There are two
smaller flat rock islands to the south and the northeast that Snake can
stand on.  The exit to the north, and the entrance to the southeast are both
blocked by the Pain's hornets.  Near the entrance is a {LF MED}.

{AK-47 AMMO} will spawn on the southern island.  {MK22 AMMO} and {M37 AMMO}
will spawn on the northeast island.  A little bit west of the southern
island, under water, you can find [GRENADES].  On the incline to the
battle area's entrance is some {M1911 AMMO}.  All of these will spawn
continuously during the fight.  Once the fight is over, however, they will
no longer spawn.

As always, I recommend stamina killing the Pain.  Doing so will allow Snake
to obtain the Pain's Hornet Stripe camo.

When the battle begins, throw a hornet nest at Snake's feet then jump into
the water.  Why?  Because the Pain will throw a bottle of pheromones (special
chemicals that can be smelled by the hornets).  Some tagging hornets will
swarm around Snake because of the pheromones.  However, with the hornet nest
present, they will go in there instead, which will make the Pain get
frustrated at his hornets.

It matters not if the nest was spoiled.  Once the Pain's hornets go into the
nest, it will become transformed into the Nest of Pain's Hornets
(R. P. H. Nest).  This new nest will never spoil and will give Snake full
stamina recovery.  It's possible to have four of these nests (two from
Dolinovodno, one from Dremuchij Swampland, one from Bolshaya Past Crevice).

If throwing the nests at Snake's feet is difficult to do (those damn things
keep slipping off the rock face!), then just keep them selected as weapons in
the backpack.  The tagging hornets will stick to Snake, immobilizing him.
However, at the same time, they will also go into the nests.

Normally, after the hornets immobilize Snake, the Pain will follow up with
one of his attacks.

Grenade!  The Pain will yell, "GRENADE!" at which his hornets will envelop a
grenade and fly it in Snake's direction.  When it's close to Snake, the
hornets will dissipate.  The grenade will then fall and explode.

Tommy gun!  The Pain will yell, "TOMMY GUN!" at which the Pain's hornets will
gather around a machine gun, which the Pain will fire at Snake.

After the Pain has sustained damage to a quarter of his life or stamina, he
will wear armor.  What kind of armor?  Hornet armor, of course.  Three shots
from the M37 will cause the hornets to dissipate.  A well placed smoke or
frag grenade has the same effect.

Keep in mind that Snake can shoot his pistols while treading, and swimming in
the water.  Make use of this fact for the first quarter of the Pain's
life/stamina bar.

So, after upgrading the hornet nests (if you did so), jump into the water
to the south.  Try to keep a rock island between you and the Pain when in the
water.  While treading water, aim in FPV, and press L2 and R2 to elevate
Snake a little bit.  This gives Snake a bit of an advantage.

Whenever the Pain uses his tagging/immobilizing hornets ("Go, my brothers!"),
just jump in the water and swim underwater to avoid them.

Once the Pain starts wearing his armor, I'd recommend getting on one of the
islands.  Use the M37 to blast his armor into hornet mulch.  Then tranq him.
If he gets his armor again, repeat the process.  Alternatively, you can try
throwing a hand grenade onto the platform at the Pain's feet.  Either way,
afterwards, plug his head or chest with tranqs.

When Snake is on an island, and the Pain summons a grenade, quickly blast the
hornet orb with the M37 (or spray it with AK-47 fire).  This will make the
Pain's attack backfire on him, as the grenade will cause the Pain's armor to
dissipate.  Tranq him some more.

Try to make use of the tactical reload technique:  While in FPV, fire a shot,
tap R2 twice, fire another shot, repeat.  This will make getting rid of the
armor easier, and the battle will go by faster.  Good luck!

When the Pain uses the tommy gun attack, go into the water and use the rock
island as a shield.  Try to get in a couple shots by using the FPV + L2 + R2
technique.

Don't forget the ammo spawn points when you're running low.

When the Pain's health/stamina is halfway depleted, a cutscene will show him
removing his balaclava and using his latest attack:  the bullet bee.  You'll
know when he uses this attack since the bullet bees will fly around the
island with red trails behind them.  As with the tagging/immobilizing
hornets, jump into the water to avoid the bullet bees.

If Snake gets hit by a bullet bee, immediately go into the CURE menu and
heal Snake.  The bullet bee will burrow and drain Snake's life.  Use the
disinfectant, knife and styptic, in any order.

Sometimes, the Pain will create a doppelganger.  To see through this ruse,
equip the thermal goggles.  His copy will not give off a heat signature.  You
know what to do:  tranq the warm body.

Repeat the above until the Pain can't take it any more.  Watch the cutscene.

Snake will appear on the northeast island after the Pain dies.  You can now
backtrack if you want.

Head to the north toward the exit.  If you stamina killed the Pain, prior to
going to the next area, head along the ledge to the right.  Adjust the camera
as necessary to prevent Snake from falling back into the water.

If you keep following the ledge, you will find yourself above the area where
the Snow Face paint was located.  However, that's not where we want to go.

About halfway along the curving ledge, there will be an outcropping which
forms a lip pointing toward the island where the Pain stayed during the
fight.

Keep Snake close to the wall, then position the camera behind Snake.  Run up
the lip, and before Snake gets to the edge, roll onto the island.  Near the
center of the northern edge is the <HORNET STRIPE CAMO>.

This camo will basically act like Bug Juice; it will repel pests (hornets,
spiders, and leeches).  If this camo is worn, and you shoot a Baltic Hornet
Nest down, the hornets will harmlessly swarm around Snake.  When Snake gets
near an enemy, the hornets will attack the enemy, causing him to flee.

Jump into the water and head north to the exit.

Before you go down the slippery slope a few feet north, make sure you have
everything you want from the Chyornaya Peschera Cave (and Branch).  Once
Snake slides down the slope, he can't go back.

Okay.  Head north and watch the cutscene.  Cool!  Hover guards!  I love the
sound of those things.

Continue along the sinuous path.  The area will broaden.  To the northwest
is a small cave with two [CLAYMORES] aimed at {MK22 AMMO}, {M1911 AMMO},
and {AK-47 AMMO}.

Take the path to the northeast and make your way down the ledges.  For a
quick way down, roll off the north-northeast lips of the ledges.

Also, equip the Croc Cap.

This area is pretty much straight forward.  Submerge Snake and swim under
water to the north.  Stay to the left side of the channel.

The spotlight underneath the hover guard's platform outlines the enemy's
field of vision.

It is possible to swim all the way past the second hover guard with a single
breath; this requires full stamina to do so.

If you panic about Snake's oxygen gauge, get some air, and kneel while
wearing the Croc Cap.  As long as Snake is unarmed, the guard will dismiss
Snake as a crocodile.

There are three small circular areas between the mangroves.  The north-most
has [CHAFF G].  The two guards will hover over the first and third (south-
most and north-most, respectively).

Tranqing a guard will make him fall asleep and crash, which will trigger a
CATUION.  This does not count as a kill.  If Snake is under the explosion,
he'll get burned.

Shooting out the craft's search light with a silenced weapon will also
trigger a CAUTION.

Shooting at the hover guard's engine with a silenced weapon will also trigger
a CAUTION.  Do this enough and the craft will explode in a giant fireball.
This counts as a kill.

At the north of the mangrove area, there are two paths.  The path to the
west can be hard to discern, so once you swim past the second guard, angle
Snake to the left.

The path to the left leads to Ponizovje West.  There, you can find the
SVD and a new food item.  With the SVD, you can snipe a certain character
that will be shown in the area to the north.  Even if you don't snipe this
character, it's best to pick up the SVD, so you can make use of it later.

Don't forget to wear the Croc Cap.

Also, equip the Croc Cap.

After entering the area, swim underwater toward the southwest corner.  In
the middle of the rectangular area, underwater, is a {SP/M1911}.

Surface, then hug the west wall, while going north.  When you reach the
corner of the cement, peek out to the right in FPV, then tranq the guard.

Climb up onto the western wooden dock, then shoot the oil drum to the
northeast with the M1911.  The explosion will send the enemy flying into the
water, where he will die.  However, according to the statistics at the end
of the game, this does not count as a human kill.

There are three boats near the western wooden dock.  The southeastern one has
{MK22 AMMO} and {M1911 AMMO}.  The western boat has [WP G].  The
northeastern one has [STUN G].

Go north along the dock to a set of stairs.  Under the platform to the left
of the stairs are some [CHAFF G].

In the northwest corner of the area, behind some wooden crates, is a
{SP/MK22}.

Head to the armory in the northeast.  There, you'll find more {MK22 AMMO},
{M37 AMMO}, {AK-47 AMMO}, [TNT], [GRENADES], and the main reason to come to
this area, the [SVD - Sniper Rifle].

Note that the FPV button for the SVD is L1.

Equip the TNT, set it in the armory, retreat, and detonate.

Select the SVD in the backpack prior to heading north.  If you DO kill the
boss in the next area, you will have to face numerous Ocelot members in the
areas where you face this boss.  In addition, you can't collect his camo.

This particular boss fight, in my opinion, is wonderfully epic.  So, of
course, I'll suggest refraining from killing him.  However, you CAN injure
him a bit.  This will make the boss fight later much easier (yet shorter).

After making your way back to the north/south channel, head to the north.
To go faster, swim underwater to

Watch the cutscene.  Nice stealth camouflage, the Fear.  Leaving the End by
himself.  Like a sitting duck.  So... tempting... to snipe...  >:)

So, go ahead.  Satisfy the temptation.  Bust out the SVD and cap his shoulder
once or twice.  This will take out a large chunk of health.

If you go for the head shot, and actually manage to kill him, he will explode
("THE ENNNNNNDD!").  The ensuing explosion will propel one of his wheels at
Snake.  If you don't move out of the way, Snake will get hit in the noggin by
the metallic wheel.  As mentioned before, killing the End in this fashion
will not allow you to collect his awesome camo.

Needless to say, a CAUTION phase will be raised.

Personally, I don't waste the SVD slugs on the End.  I waste them on ... the
flammable oil drums after tranqing the guard in the head on the eastern
wooden dock.  Next, switch to the SVD, and shoot the oil drum to the right of
the End -- west of the stairs.  This explosion will damage the End.  Then,
while the guard is saying, "What's wrong?" shoot the oil drum against the
western wall, obscured by some wooden crates.  This oil drum can be hard to
spot; it's located northwest of Snake's location.  The drum is close to where
the rock wall meets with the cement of the warehouse wall.  Look past the
docked boat to find it.  You can take one more shot at the End, if you want.
Just shoot his shoulder or back, lest he die.

The timing is pretty tight.  After the first SVD shot, a CAUTION will pop up.
After the second SVD shot, the CAUTION will be cancelled.

If the support unit comes to investigate, don't panic, and shoot the oil
drum, by the stairs, near the entrance to the warehouse.  Be sure to wait
until both support members are close to the oil drum.

The guards caught in the blast will not be counted as kills!

If this is too hard, go underwater, and swim to the southwest.  Tranq the
GRU soldier on the west side.  Then, tranq the guard on the eastern dock.
Head north onto the western dock, then tranq the 
guard near the stairs to
the northeast.

Get the {SP/M1911} and {M1911 AMMO} under the eastern dock.  There is some
more {M1911 AMMO} under the western dock.

The western dock has two boats flanking it.  The western boat has {MK22 AMMO}
and [STUN G].  The eastern one has {AK-47 AMMO}.

Underwater, to the southwest, is some {SVD AMMO}.  To the east is some
{M37 AMMO}.

Go around the corner, then up the steps.  Using the cardboard box will make
Snake go up the stairs faster.

Cross the threshold while wearing the box and head to the south.

On the bottom floor, there are two GRU soldiers.  Both are patrolling large
metal crates, in a counter-clockwise fashion.  There is a set of crates to
the north, and one to the south.  There is another guard on the third floor.

South of the doorway, there is some {ANTIDOTE} and {SERUM}.

Stand near the railing and tranq the southern soldier.  When the one in the
north comes to investigate, quickly tranq him as well.  Wait for the guard
on the third floor to come to the southern part of his patrol.  Tranq him.

Roll over the railing to the west.  Against the west wall is a {BANDAGE}.

To the south of the bandage is the large entry to the warehouse.  This is
the way the End made his entry (if he didn't die).  Against the door, in the
southeast corner is <DESERT FACE PAINT>.

Make your way north, then head up the stairs.  In the food storehouse, there
is a {MOUSETRAP}, INSTANT NOODLES, and a R. C MATE -- Calorie Mate.  Use the
TNT on the food storehouse, if you want.  At the south of the eastern walkway
is some {STYPTIC} and {DISINFECT}.

Lean against the railing to the west of these items, then press (T) to hang
from the walkway.  Drop down by pressing (X) and pick up the {SP/MK22}.

Go to the third floor.  Shake down the soldier there to receive some
{M1911 AMMO}.  Upon the second shake down, he will yield a pistol suppressor.
If you have more M1911 suppressors, he'll give up a {SP/MK22}; otherwise,
he'll give up a {SP/M1911}.

Although there aren't any enemies in this area, be careful.  There are plenty
of booby-traps.  Use the thermal goggles to visualize them.  The exit is
pretty much straight north of the entrance to the area.

Want proof?  There are a couple casualties still hanging around.  After you
enter the area, and drop down to the lower area, hug the left rock wall.
Equip the binoculars, and look slightly east of north.  Beyond a large tree
with vines on its trunk, there is a scientist impaled by a spiked log.

So, watch out for the booby-traps!

There is some mud to the west.

There are some bottom-less pits covered with vegetation to the west and to
the east.  The latter one is just north of some {LF MED}.

To the northwest and east are trip-wires attached to some invisible 
claymores.  The one in the northwest is near some INSTANT NOODLES.

If you trip the trip-wire trap to the southeast, arrows will be shot at
Snake from the west.

Trip-wires to the northeast, west, and near the middle of the area all have
spiked logs ready to swing down upon Snake.  The one in the west is near a
{BOOK}.

There are a couple snare traps at the bases of two trees to the north.  They
will appear as circular loops (with the thermal goggles equipped).  If Snake
gets caught, press (T) to cut the rope after Snake stops swinging.

+-------+-------------------------------------------------------------------+
| FOOD! |  After Snake enters the area, drop to the lower level.  Then hug  |
+-------+  the rock wall to the east.  Head east until you see a large tree |
|          with vines on its trunk.  At the base of the western face of the |
| trunk, you'll find a mushroom with a long stem.  It's easier to see with  |

There's an electrified fence separating Snake from the fortified wall of
Graniny Gorki.  There are two GRU soldiers -- one to the east and one to the
west.

Head to the north, then lay prone in the grass.  A couple birds may fly
away, giving away your position to the guard in the east.  Tranq the guard to
the east.  Then kill the dog to the north.

While the guard comes to investigate the noise, make your way to the east to
find a {SP/MK22} circled by a Taiwanese Cobra.

Head to the west.  Crouch behind the tree to the west of the grassy patch.
Tranq the guard to the west.

Continue going to the west.  There's a control box for the electrified fence
to the left.  There's a shallow indentation that Snake can crawl through,
below the (electrified) fence near the control box.

Head to the north of the tree to find a {SP/M1911}.

If you want, you can enter the grounds by accessing a vent in the fortified
wall.  This vent is found in the patch of grass immediately south of the
tree.  If you can't find it, crawl east along the wall, in the grass.  (When
you're near the vent, the screen will change dimensions like when Snake
approaches the entrance into another area.)

However, I'm going to outline another route.

Make your way east to where the first guard was.  Go along the wall to the
north.  Notice the door south of some crates?  It's locked.

The solution?  Knock on the door by leaning on it and tapping (O).

"Ok, just a second!"

While you wait for the GRU soldier to open the door, stand by the crates.
The soldier will open the door and head south.

Tranq the soldier.  Shake him down twice to get {MK22 AMMO} and a {BATTERY}.

Go through the door.

Go around the building in a clockwise fashion (south, then east, then north).
Tranq the guard to the north.  Then, head to the northeast to find an armory.
Inside, you'll find {AK-47 AMMO}, {M37 AMMO}, {SVD AMMO}, [TNT], and the
[XM16].

If you want, set the TNT in the armory, but don't detonate it, yet.  There are
two guards to the west.  Tranq the one to the north first.  Then head to the
southern truck.  Under the south truck is some {M1911 AMMO} and {MK22 AMMO}.

Tranq the other guard, then detonate the TNT charge.

If you head to the northwest, you'll find some [SMOKE GRENADES] and
[CLAYMORES] by the lab building.  If you want, you can enter the lab building
by accessing a vent in the brick wall.  This vent is found in the patch of
grass immediately south of the smoke grenades and claymores, halfway down
the side of the building.  If you can't find it, crawl east along the wall,
in the grass.  (When you are near the vent, the screen will change dimensions
like when Snake approaches the entrance into another area.)

However, I'm going to outline another route.

The only damage Snake can do is with the PPK combo.

This next part is optional, but to cover all the areas in the game, I'm going
to suggest this next part:

PPK the guard to the east.  Wait for him to stand up, then walk south.  He'll
tell you to stop.  Watch the mini-cutscene.  You'll be sent to jail, which is
outlined in the next section.

If you don't want to go to jail, follow the brick wall to the southern face
of the lab building.  There are a pair of locked doors that face to the
south.  Around the corner to the east, there is the entrance to the lab,
which faces to the east.  Skip to (OPSE-GG1F)

I think it's pretty humorous that you can create an ALERT by yourself by
pressing (T) in front of the intercom.  If you're going for no ALERTs, then
do not press the button.

Avoid bumping into guards as much as possible.  Doing this too often will
result in an ALERT.

Do not roll.  This will make the enemy suspicious.

If an enemy guard tells Snake to stop, don't panic!  Just stop and wait for
the enemy guard to walk up to Snake.  Press (T) to straighten Snake's
glasses and wait for the guard to finish inspecting Snake.  Running away from
a guard calling at Snake can trigger an ALERT.  So don't flee!  As long as
the guard isn't suspicious, he won't signal an ALERT.  Some guards are mean
and will hit or shove Snake.  Don't retaliate, or it's an instant ALERT.

If the scientists on the main floor see Snake behave un-scientist-like
(e.g., rolling, PPKing), they can/will press the button on the intercom to
signal an ALERT.

If the scientists try to inspect Snake, pressing (T) to adjust Snake's
glasses will not fool them.

There's an office at the corner with the door opening into it on the eastern
wall.  Inside, you'll find {ANTIDOTE} and {MK22 AMMO}.  Be sure that the
guard isn't nearby when you collect the {M37 AMMO} and {SVD AMMO} under the
desk to the south.

Exit the office, then head north and up the stairs, 's,' into

After ascending the stairs, go west along the hallway.  Follow the walkway
looking down on the lobby below and head to the southwest.  Go into the food
storehouse to find two packages of INSTANT NOODLES and a CALORIE MATE.

Switch to any camo, set a TNT charge in the storehouse and go out the door.
Head to the east, next to the other door.  Detonate the TNT, then quickly
change into the scientist outfit.  Why?  Because the explosion will trigger
a CAUTION.

Be VERY careful when opening doors in this status.

Go through the second door to find an elevated patio overlooking the
courtyard.  Pick up the {BOOK}.  To waste some time off the CAUTION timer,
eat the spatsa here.

Go back through the door.  Walk to the west, then north, then east along the
walkway.  If any guards get suspicious, remember to stop and press (T).
Don't retaliate if the guards injure you.

Walk to the north, then carefully open the door into the second floor
library.  To the southeast, between a bookshelf and a desk, you'll find a
{SP/MK22}.

When it's clear (i.e., the guard is walking away from the bathroom), go into
the bathroom to the north.

'Lckr' stands for lockers.  'D' stands for destination.

You'll notice that the guard in this area is hungry.  That's the result of
the destroyed food storehouse.  Scientists, for some reason, are not hungry.
You can feed the guard, if you want.  Just stay out of sight, then switch to
any camo.  Equip (rotten or poisonous) food in the weapons section, then
throw it like a grenade.  "Munchies!"

Quickly switch back to the Scientist camo.

After going down the stairs, head south, then west.  Make sure the guard 'G'
isn't in the office, and go inside.  You'll find the cigar gas-spray,
{CIG SPRAY}, against the eastern wall.  Equip this in your weapon inventory.
It can be used with ANY camo.

Once it's clear, go out of the office, then into the lounge.  Stand in the
southwest corner.  Wait until the scientist is heading west, then go north.
Get right behind Scientist '1' and use the cig spray by tapping (S).

While he's unconscious, open the left locker to find a Knockout Handkerchief
{HANDKER}.

Head east through the door.

Run to the southeast to find a {BATTERY].

Equip the box.

Run up the aisle between the computer banks.  Between the north-most computer
banks on the east side, there is a suppressor for the XM16, {SP/XM16E1}.

Head to the northwest, and go through the door.  If you want, you can change
into whichever camo you like best.  Approach the door to the west.

As long as there is no EVASION or ALERT phase, Snake will make contact...
with...

Eh.  Watch the cutscenes.

I love this rendition of the MGS theme.  Press R1 at the appropriate times to
see models of REX, RAY, and Jehuty (from Zone of the Enders), and some Metal
Gear blueprints.

Metal Gear?!?!??!


After Granin gives Snake the key, it's time to re-trace your steps.  Change
back into the Scientist camo, if necessary.

Knock on the door to Granin's office, and he'll get pissed!

Equip the box again, then head east through the door.  Run down the aisle
between the computer banks.  Go through the door into the lounge.  Quickly,
run south along the eastern wall.  Next to the door, be sure to unequip the
box.

Open the door out of the lounge, go south and east.  Then, make your way up
the stairs into

Snake will emerge into the patch of grass to the south of where the
[SMOKE GRENADES] and [CLAYMORES] were.

Crawl south, then using the MK22, tranq the guard near the tree.  Tranq the
other guard that is patrolling near the trucks further south.

Get up, and make your way under the southern truck for some {MK22 AMMO} and
{M1911 AMMO}.

Go into the grassy patch to the west and go through the vent.  If you can't
find it, crawl west along the wall, in the grass.  (When you are near the
vent, the screen will change dimensions like when Snake approaches the
entrance into another area.)

Watch the cutscene.

I've dislocated my shoulder once and was in a lot of pain, but dislocating
both?!??!  Jeesh.

I bet the Fear is a cunning linguist.  >_>

Did you pick your favorite camouflage and face paint?  Usually, I choose
Splitter camo and Zombie face paint, although, watching Snake walking in the
jungle in the Ga-Ko camo makes me laugh.

Time for another boss.

You've already passed through this area once, at night.

The booby-traps have been reset.  As such, it's a good idea to equip the
thermal goggles.  Another reason why the thermal goggles are a boon for this
fight?  The Fear will activate his stealth camouflage and jump from tree
branch to tree branch.  With the thermal goggles on, you can track the Fear's
progress.

If you don't have the thermal goggles, good luck.  Try watching where the
leaves fall from, and I hope you have a decent sound system.  It can be
quite difficult to follow his movements without the thermal goggles.

Snake will find himself in the center of the forest.  Initially, the Fear
will appear above Snake on a branch, to the north.

At Snake's feet is a European rabbit.  Also hopping around close by are some

First and foremost, press START and access the CURE menu.  Use the
knife, styptic and bandage, in any order.  Also make use of the serum to
eliminate the poison.

Equip the thermal goggles.

Although we've accrued many suppressors, you might as well take off the
suppressor.

I recommend using the MK22 to stamina kill the Fear.  The Fear's camo is
pretty good.

Using the MK22, aim upwards and shoot the Fear's face.  He will likely jump
to a tree to the south.  Track his movements, and cap him in the chest or
head.  He pauses between each jump; shoot him at each pause.

If you don't go on the offensive, the Fear will.  He will take out his
crossbow and take aim.  He usually taunts before firing.  So, when he pauses
to get Snake in his cross-hairs, take the shot first.  Should Snake get shot,
go into the CURE menu and repeat the steps above.

After getting plugged by enough tranquilizer darts (or bullets), the Fear's
stamina (or life) meter will be at half.  All this jumping will take its toll
on the Fear's stamina, as well.  At this point, he'll announce that he needs
"Food!"

Giving Snake a reprieve, the Fear will hunt some of the animals in the area.
Let's save him the trouble, shall we?

But, we're no philanthropists.  On the contrary.  We will proffer some
poisonous food!

When the Fear is hungry, shoot at the fly agaric mushrooms at the bases of
the trees.  Or kill some of the poison dart frogs hopping about.

The Fear is an opportunist and will eat this food, rather than hunt for
himself.  He'll disengage his stealth camouflage and scramble down a tree
trunk.  In a blurred scurry, the Fear will rush to the food.

"Poison!" he will declare, while standing still.  Cap him in the head with
the MK22.  Or PPK/roll into him.

While he vomits, tranq him some more.

He will again take refuge in the trees.  But he's still hungry.  So, shoot
another fly agaric, and repeat the above.

You must deliver the final blow to his stamina meter.  It will not deplete
all the way from his vomiting.  Tranq, PPK or roll into him to strike the
final blow and defeat the Fear.

If you want, you can use a hybrid of the two strategies (i.e., tranq the Fear
like crazy until halfway through his stamina bar, then do the Fake Death Pill
trick).


Watch the cutscene.  Kaboom!  To find out the reason why the Cobra members
explode, call Zero.

Snake will appear in the middle of the forest again (i.e., where the fight
started).  Roll to the south (and a bit west) to find the <SPIDER CAMO>.

This camo will provide a very good Camo Index in all areas.  Enemies won't
see Snake unless he's directly in front of them.  The bad side:  It depletes
stamina like no other.  Basically, it's as if Snake has a ton of leeches
latched onto him, while coming down with food poisoning.

The {LF MED}, {BOOK} and INSTANT NOODLES are where they were before.

The same three soldiers are present.  The two GRU soldiers on the bottom
floor are still patrolling the large metal crates in a counter-clockwise
fashion.  The guard that was on the third floor, is now on the second floor.

Because the food storehouse was destroyed, these soldiers will be hungry.
However, there will be INSTANT NOODLES and a CALORIE MATE, which will
distract the guard on the second floor.

When you enter the area, throw a chaff grenade.  Then, head south and stop by
the oil drum.  Wait until the guard on the second floor notices the food,
then go to the railing to the southwest.  Roll over the railing to drop onto
the landing between the second and third floors.  Lay prone on the landing as
close to the western wall.

When the guard emerges from the food storehouse and stops at the base of the
stairs, tranq him.  Then, make your along the western wall to the south.  At
the corner of the rail, stand (on tip toes by pressing R2 and L2) and tranq
the guard that circles the northern crates.  Then tranq the last guard to the
south.

Go to the second floor.  Pick up the {STYPTIC} and {DISINFECT}.  Inside the
food storehouse is another {MOUSETRAP} -- the guard ate the INSTANT NOODLES
and CALORIE MATE.

Lean against the railing to the west, then press (T) to hang from the
walkway.  Drop down by pressing (X) and pick up the {SP/MK22}.

On the ground floor, shake the northern guard to get {MK22 AMMO} and
{M1911 AMMO}.

Recall the {BANDAGE} near the west wall?  Get it, if you need/want it.

will open.  This is the door that Granin was talking about.

South of both doorways, there is some {ANTIDOTE} and {SERUM}.

I'm going to outline how to get a face paint in a previous area.  So, if you
want to skip this, go through the door that Granin's key opens and skip to

Immediately after Snake makes his way into the area, tranq the guard in
front of Snake (to the south).  Go to the corner of the wall, then peek out
to the left, and tranq the guard to the far west.

There is another guard that will go up the steps.  So, back up a couple steps
and be patient.  The GRU guard will ascend the stairs and look to the south.
Tranq him then.

Get the {SP/M1911} and {M1911 AMMO} under the eastern dock.  There is some
more {M1911 AMMO} under the western dock.

[SMOKE GRENADES] can be found near the oil drums to the west, near the edge
of the western dock.

The western dock has two boats flanking it.  The western boat has {MK22 AMMO}
and [STUN G].  The eastern one has {AK-47 AMMO}.

More likely than not, the enemies will still be asleep, so go into the
warehouse.

If the enemies are awake, repeat the steps from before (when the End was
wheeled into the warehouse).

Tranq the guard in the head on the eastern wooden dock.  Next, switch to the
SVD, and shoot the oil drum to the west of the stairs.  This explosion will
kill the guard by the oil drum.  While the guard is saying, "What's wrong?"
shoot the oil drum against the western wall, obscured by some wooden crates.
This oil drum can be hard to spot; it's located northwest of Snake's
location.  Remember, the drum is close to where  the rock wall meets with the
cement of the warehouse wall.  Look past the docked boat to find it.

Reminder:  The timing is pretty tight.  After the first SVD shot, a CAUTION
will pop up.  After the second SVD shot, the CAUTION will be cancelled.

If the support unit comes to investigate, don't panic, and shoot the oil
drum, by the stairs, near the entrance to the warehouse.  Be sure to wait
until both support members are close to the oil drum.

Recall, the guards caught in the blast will not be counted as kills!

If this is too hard, go underwater, and swim to the southwest.  Tranq the
GRU soldier on the west side.  Then, tranq the guard on the eastern dock.
Head north onto the western dock, then tranq the 
guard near the stairs to
the northeast.

If you didn't get them on the way out, get the {SP/M1911} and {M1911 AMMO}
under the eastern dock.  There is some more {M1911 AMMO} under the western
dock.

The western dock has two boats flanking it.  The western boat has {MK22 AMMO}

Go around the corner, then up the steps.

hugging the eastern wall, and go through the door immediately to the north.

If you didn't get the items on the way to the exterior, head to the south.

Roll over the railing to the west.  Against the west wall is a {BANDAGE}.

Make your way north, then head up the stairs.  In the food storehouse, there
is a {MOUSETRAP}.  The INSTANT NOODLES and CALORIE MATE will be gone.  At
the south of the eastern walkway is some {STYPTIC} and {DISINFECT}.

Lean against the railing to the west of these items, then press (T) to hang
from the walkway.  Drop down by pressing (X) and pick up the {SP/MK22}.

There are two main pathways at the south of          ( 1    /\ 2 \ 
this area.  When Snake first enters this area,       (  p  (__) p )
there is a large gray and green tree near the        t  _________)
western rock face, marked as 't.'                  Entrance

One pathway goes northwest of this tree.  The other goes to the east.

Both pathways to the south have bottom-less pits for booby-traps, which are
marked as 'p.'  Equip the thermal goggles to see the patches of leaves
concealing the mouths of the pits.

The southern half of the figure eight is patrolled by two enemies, one on
each side.  Guard '1' goes roughly north/south.  Guard '2' goes in a circle,
clockwise.

The northern half of the figure eight has two guards as well.  Guard '3' goes
roughly north/south, while Guard '4' goes in a circle clockwise.

The middle of the northern half of the figure eight has a spiked log booby-
trap with a trip-wire between two trees, 'l.'  The trip-wire for this trap is
aligned north/south.  There is another trip-wire strung east/west near the
exit of the area to the north, heading to Sokrovenno South (marked as :SS:).

A snare booby-trap is set on the eastern path of the northern half of the
figure eight, marked as 's.'  This is near the exit of the area to the
northeast, heading to Svyatogornyj East (marked as :SE:).

When you enter the area, take the northwest path.  Follow the western rock
face to the north.  There is a large patch of brown dirt.  A little north of
the brown patch is a hollow log, near some grass and a pit booby-trap.  Crawl
north through the hollow log and tranq Guard '1' as he comes close to Snake.

There is some {XM16 AMMO} by the pit booby-trap northwest of Guard '4.'

I'm going to outline how to get a large caliber machine gun, and blow up the
nearby food storehouse.  Head to the northeast into Svyatogornyj East (:SE:).

I would recommend saving in this area prior to going into Sokrovenno North.
You can quickly pop into Svyatogornyj East, then return to Svyatogornyj West
and save.

This is a really large area.  The west part of the area has a slight incline.
Two guards (I'll call them "strolling guards") will go down the incline, east
past a depression, back north, then west to the top of the incline (in a

To the north of the cabin, there is a                    ______________|
large tree with climb-able vines, 'L.'

There is a trap door, 'D,' into the               sT
northern room.  It can be accessed
from below the cabin.

'..' and ':' are breakable windows.


 'X' is {XM16 AMMO}    'K' is {MK22 AMMO}    '3' is {M37 AMMO}

 'V' is {SVD AMMO}     'N' is [TNT]

'mu' is {SP/MK22}     'su' is {SP/M1911}    'xu' is {SP/XM16}

 'M' is the [M63 - Machine Gun]

The TNT and {SP/XM16} are under beds.

When Snake first enters the area, head to the east along the southern rock
face.  In the southeast corner of the area, hidden in some grass, is a
{BOOK}.

Go north along the eastern rock face.

Stand against the cabin wall at the northeast corner.  Knock against the
wall.  Quickly take cover and lay prone in the grassy patch to the north of
the cabin (and east of the climb-able tree).

Guard 'I' will investigate the sound.  Tranq him when he's facing the wall.

Go into the cabin by going through the nearby door.  Climb over the box to
the west and grab the [M63 - Machine Gun].

There is a trap door to the north of where the M63 was located.  Go under the
cabin by using the trap door -- press (T).  

Crawl to the northwest corner of the deck.  While still under the deck, send
out a ping with the active sonar.  This will likely catch the attention of
Guard 'W,' so crawl into the grassy patch to the northwest.

With Guard 'W' lured to the corner of the deck, wait for him to look under
the deck.  Tranq him.  I suggest luring him to the northwestern corner so
that he's out of sight of the two strolling guards.

Crawl to the south under the cabin.  As soon as the two strolling guards head
west, tranq Guard 'S.'

Go out from under the deck.  Catch up to the two strolling guards.  Go onto
the incline to the west.  Look to the south for the strolling guards.  Tranq
the nearest guard first, then the other.

Go back to the cabin to get the ammo, TNT, and suppressors.  By now, you
should have several suppressors for both pistols.

After getting these supplies, head to the northwest of the cabin to find a
food storehouse.  Pick up the two CALORIE MATEs and RUSSIAN RATION.  Set a
TNT charge, get out of the storehouse, and detonate the TNT.

Go south of the food storehouse, and follow along the rock wall.  Go up the
incline to the west and south past the two tranquilized GRU soldiers.

Continue south, and exit back into

If you want to, you can make a quick dash to the northern exit.  Immediately
after Snake enters the area, run along the eastern rock face to the north.

Otherwise, after entering the area, make your way into the grass.  Go to the
north-most part of the grassy patch, by the trees.  Equip the thermal goggles
and tranq the guard to the west.

Head north along the eastern rock face to avoid hitting the trip-wire for
the spiked log booby-trap.

 ~ If you killed the End on the dock in the Ponizovje Warehouse: Exterior
   area, you will have to face Eight (8) Ocelot members in this area, alone.
   There will be a perpetual CAUTION phase.  This does NOT count as an ALERT.
   However, it is possible to trigger an ALERT if an Ocelot unit member spots
   Snake.  They have VERY keen vision, so be careful!

Watch the cutscene and listen to the radio conversation.

Welcome to the jungle.  The End's got fun and games.

This boss battle takes place in three humongous areas (Sokrovenno South,
West, and North).

An important thing to note in Sokrovenno South is an armory to the west of
the area.  Within it, you can find [TNT], {MK22 AMMO}, {XM16 AMMO},
{M37 AMMO}, and {SVD AMMO}.  If you didn't get the SVD at the Ponizovje
Warehouse, you can get it here.

Blow up the armory if you want.  The ammo will re-spawn after the battle is
over; pick it up then.

There is a snare booby-trap to the southeast of the armory, by a tree.

An important thing to note in Sokrovenno West is the multi-tiered waterfall.
The sound of the water will dominate all others when using the directional
microphone (d. mic).

The important thing to note in Sokrovenno North is the exit after the fight!

The End can go into any of the three areas, which is pretty random.  So,
since the battle starts in Sokrovenno South, I will just outline my strategy
in this section.

The weather will change throughout this battle.  It may be sunny, cloudy,
foggy, and/or rainy.

Snake will find himself in the center of the forest, taking cover behind a
batch of trees.  Most of the time, the End will appear at a sniping spot on
an overlooking cliff to the north.  Sometimes, he will appear at another
sniping spot on another cliff to the northeast.


A quick note on the four possible ways this boss battle can end (no pun
intended.... actually, maybe it was intended o_O):

1)  Snake defeats the End.  *** RECOMMENDED ***
--------------------------
How:  Stamina kill (preferred) or lethally kill the End.  This will be
      outlined below.

2) The End defeats Snake -- Reckless Boy
-------------------------
How:  The easiest way to do this is to run around Sokrovenno, firing an
      un-suppressed weapon.  If this is done in a wide open area and Snake
      hasn't been shot, go to another part of Sokrovenno and repeat.  The End
      will shoot Snake repeatedly with his drugged needles.  Do not remove
      the needles in the CURE menu.  Eventually, Snake's stamina will drain
      completely.  Watch the cutscene.

3) The End sneaks up behind Snake -- You Disappoint Me, Young Snake
---------------------------------
How:  Save after the introductory cutscene.  Turn off the console.  Either
      load the game a couple DAYS later, or eject the disc and set the
      console's internal clock ahead by a couple DAYS and load.  Watch the
      cutscene as Snake is caught napping.

4) The End dies of old age.
---------------------------
How:  Save after the introductory cutscene.  Turn off the console.  Either
      load the game a WEEK or two later, or eject the disc and set the
      console's internal clock ahead by a couple WEEKS and load.  Watch the
      cutscene and radio conversation to find that the End had, as Zero
      eloquently puts it, "kicked the bucket in the middle of battle."

Numbers 2) and 3) will cause Snake to be thrown into the jail in the Graniny
Gorki Lab facility (B1E).  Therefore, Snake will have to re-tread his steps
out of the facility, through the Fear's area (without enemies), the 
warehouse, and Svyatogornyj.  When Snake returns to Sokrovenno, he will be
greeted by the End.  This is the reason why I suggested saving in
Svyatogornyj West, prior to entering Sokrovenno.

As mentioned before, the majority of the time, the End will appear at a
sniping spot on an overlooking cliff to the north.  Other times, he will
appear at another sniping spot on another cliff to the northeast.

When the battle begins, equip the thermal goggles, and peek out around the
left-most tree.  If you can see a lens flare (reflection from the End's
sniper scope) from the north, aim the MK22 at the center of the lens flare
and shoot three quick shots.

Although you don't really have to use this tactic against this boss, try to
make use of the tactical reload technique:  While in FPV, fire a shot, tap
R2 twice, fire another shot, repeat.  This will make the battle go by faster.
Good luck!

If you don't see the lens flare from the north, head north around the batch
of trees and veer to the northeast.  Follow the rock wall to the north.  As
you approach the cliff, crawl/stalk near the edge, by the rock wall.  Equip
the thermal goggles, peek out to the left of the rock edge.  Shoot the End
thrice quickly.

The End will be impressed and move to a new sniping spot.  When he moves
from sniping spot to another, his stamina will decrease.

The End will be using drugged needles during this fight.  Therefore, Snake's
stamina should be monitored throughout this battle.

Once the End fires his sniper rifle, his position will be shown on the game's
map (press START, go to MAP) as a red filled-in circle.

The End will move to a new sniping spot after he gets shot enough times, and
after he takes a few shots at Snake.

NOTE:  If Snake gets shot by the End, go to the CURE menu and use the knife
       to remove the End's sniper needle.  Easy as pie.  Eat something to
       recover the lost stamina.

Don't worry!  There is a great deal of flora and fauna in this area.

+-------+-------------------------------------------------------------------+
| FOOD! |  After the introductory cutscene, and getting the three shots in, |
+-------+  go to the west, then north to find the armory.  Perched on the   |
|          southeast corner of the armory's roof, is a familiar bird (for   |
| those that played MGS2).  Go up the ramp to the armory for a better       |
| angle.  It's the End's green PARROT.                                      |
|                                                                           |
| If you kill it, the End will get angry at Snake.  If you tranq the parrot |
| then release it (by equipping and throwing it as a weapon), the parrot    |
| will go to the End's location and squawk, "GRANDPA!" -- which will give   |
| away the End's sniping spot.  Use the directional microphone to           |
| triangulate the End's position.                                           |

If you equip the directional microphone (weapons side), you can follow his
progress as he gasps for breath.  Use the d. mic to find where the sound is
loudest -- that's the End's new sniping spot.  Move a few feet and use the
d. mic again to help triangulate the End's position.

After the first three shot volley, and supposing you caught the Parrot, you
can release it (by throwing the cage like a grenade).  The Parrot will fly
to the End.  

Run into Sokrovenno North (or West) and use the d. mic to find where the End
is located.  If you can't find him, you can run out in the open to draw his
fire.  If he still doesn't fire at you in that area, go into another area and
repeat.

There is an easier way to locate the End.  Press START, go to the MAP, and
use the Konami code.  (Normal is the highest difficulty where this trick
will work; it won't work on Hard or Extreme).

[]-----------------------------------------------------------[]
|                                                             |
| Konami Code:  Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right (S) (T) |
|                                                             |
[]-----------------------------------------------------------[]


Press the directions (Up, Down, Left and Right) with the Dpad.

When this is done on the MAP, the End's position is highlighted as a red
filled-in circle.  Once you exit the Survival Viewer, the red circle will
disappear, so you'll have to re-enter the Konami Code when you access the
MAP again.

Time for the fun (but somewhat challenging) part.  It's time to sneak up on
the End and hold him up.

With the knowledge of the End's location, flank the End by taking a
round-about route to his position.  When you're near the end, double check
that the End has his back to you.  Use the Dpad to stalk up behind him.

After stalking within a couple feet from the End, equip a pistol and hold him
up by pointing the gun at the End (in FPV).  The End will be surprised and
will lay prone on his stomach.

Time to get his camo.  Point the gun at the End's head (or ass) to cause the
End to wriggle, then point the gun at his belt.  That is holding him up once.
Point the gun at the End's head/ass again, then back to his belt.  Each time,
he will say, "I don't think so."  Point the gun at the End's head/ass one
last (third) time, and he'll yield his excellent <MOSS CAMO>.

This camo will provide an excellent Camo Index in verdant areas; particularly
100% Camo Index in green areas.  In addition, the Moss Camo has 
photosynthetic properties:  While Snake wears this camo, and it's exposed to
light, Snake's stamina will increase!

Cap the End three times.

Be prepared for a stun grenade.  I'd advise hiding under the cardboard box
and/or turning Snake away from the grenade to alleviate the blindness caused
by the flash-bang.  While the End is fleeing, pick up the Moss Camo if you
haven't already.

Recommended Face paint:  Woodland
Recommended Camouflage:  Moss

Equip the thermal goggles to see the End's footsteps.  If it's raining, the
footsteps will be washed away.  Use the thermal goggles with the directional
microphone to pinpoint the End's location.  Don't forget to use the Konami
code every time the End moves to a new sniping spot!

A couple quick notes:
-- The End will fall asleep if Snake is taking too long.  He is especially
   likely to nod off when it's raining.  (It's raining, it's pouring, the
   old man is SNORING!!!!)  Use the d. mic to listen for the End's snoring
   when it rains.  Sneak up on him if you want.
-- When the End's health and/or stamina bar depletes to a quarter of its
   length, the End will ask the forest to give him energy for one last battle
   (like he did in his introductory cutscene).  Lo and behold, the End's life
   and/or stamina meter will be increase half its original length (i.e., if
   the health bar was at a quarter, it will now be at three-quarters)!

There are three options now that Snake has the Moss Camo.

RECOMMENDED
++++++++++++++  Continue using the MK22 to tranq the End.  This can be done
+            +  from afar (like the first three shots in Sokrovenno South).
+ OPTION ONE +  Or, you can track the End's footsteps with the thermal
+            +  goggles and his sounds with the directional microphone.
++++++++++++++  And, of course, the Konami code can be used every time the
                End moves to a new spot.  After tracking the End, you can
sneak up on him and cap him three times, at point blank range (preferably
after telling him to "FREEZE!"), or just eschew stalking and tranq him from
a few feet away.  Repeat the process until the End runs out of stamina.

The reward for stamina killing the End is his [Mosin Nagant - Sniper Rifle
with Needles].

This powerful rifle can come in handy for a couple boss fights later in the
game.


++++++++++++++  Start using lethal weapons like the M1911 and SVD.  This is
+            +  a sniper's duel, after all.  Make use of the thermal goggles,
+ OPTION TWO +  directional microphone and the Konami code.  The latter will
+            +  be especially helpful if you're just going to use the SVD.
++++++++++++++
                There is no special reward for killing the End in this
fashion.


++++++++++++++++  After getting the Moss camo, go into a new area (i.e., if
+              +  you're in Sokrovenno West, go into Sokrovenno South), then
+ OPTION THREE +  save.  Going into a new area will create a checkpoint of
+              +  sorts, thus allowing Snake to retain any objects/food he
++++++++++++++++  collected.

After saving, turn off the console.  Load the game a couple weeks later or
advance the PS2's internal clock a couple weeks then load.  The End will die
of old age.

There is no special reward for ... allowing the End's end in this fashion.



I would recommend OPTION ONE.

After whichever option you choose, watch the cutscene for a crazy denture
popping explosion.  If you killed the End's parrot, it will appear ghost-like
in the cutscene.  If it's still alive (even in one of Snake's cages), it will
appear corporeal.  Don't worry about the latter, Snake will still possess the
bird.

Head into Sokrovenno North if you aren't there already.  Skip to (OPSE-SOKN)

If you chose OPTION ONE (stamina killing the End), slide/roll off the cliff

The reward for stamina killing the End is his [Mosin Nagant - Sniper Rifle

This powerful rifle can come in handy for a couple boss fights later in the
game.  Also, note that the FPV button for the Mosin Nagant is L1.

Whether or not you picked up the Mosin Nagant, head to the southeast along
the rock face.  Follow the incline up to the east.  Head along the eastern
wall, to the north.  When the End dies in the cutscene, vines will retract
from a tunnel's entrance.  Use the MAP to see where it is (it's marked 'X'
in the Sokrovenno North map).  That tunnel is located to the northeast.

Get whichever food items you desire.  The ammo will re-spawn in the armory in
Sokrovenno South.  And, if you didn't get it earlier, the End's parrot will
appear on the southeast corner of the armory's roof.

There are some [SMOKE GRENADES] and some {SERUM} to the north.

Prior to going down the slippery slope to the west, if you want some food,
go back to the previous area.  Once you go down the slope, you can't go back
to the Krasnogorje Tunnel.

After you go down the slope, head to the west.  There are undulations of
rock, forming peaks and valleys on both west and east sides.

Go to the west and follow the rim of the cliff.  When you're at the
southwest corner of the cliff, kneel and look to the northeast.  You will see
a guard with an RPG perched on a ledge.  On that ledge are some [CHAFF G] and
[GRENADES].

If you want the chaff and regular grenades, make your way to the northeast.
Tranq the guard that patrols in the second valley from the south, on the east
side.  There is a hole in the eastern rock wall of this valley.  Go through
the hole and crawl up the curving incline to find the RPG GRU soldier.
Tranq him and take the loot.  Slide down to the second valley and make your
way west.

If you didn't want the chaff and regular grenades, continue north along the
periphery of the rock.

I recommend crawling along the periphery since the Camo Index is above 90%.

Tranq the guard in the second valley from the south, on the west side.

Continue north.  

There are two large slabs of rock slanted at a diagonal, forming a stone
tent.  If you crawl north through the area below the slabs (i.e., crawl
through the tent), you'll find {SERUM}, {SVD AMMO} and {MK22 AMMO}.

This area is pretty much a zig-zag ascent up the mountainside.

What is that sound?

It's the Hind.  What's a Russian gunship doing here?

It's just circling the mountain in a clockwise fashion.  Don't worry about
it.  Seriously, don't give the helicopter a second thought.  The only way it
will turn on Snake is if you shoot at the helicopter or you get an ALERT.

If you get a CAUTION near the edge of the mountainside, the helicopter will
sweep sideways, facing the mountainside.  But, as long as your Camo Index is
high, you don't have to fret.

Remember that Hind that was stationed at Bolshaya Past Base?  If you blew it
up, the Hind here and in the next area will be replaced by one of those
hoverguards that patrolled the mangrove swamp of Ponizovje South.  The guard
on the hovercraft sweeps along the mountainside and is more likely to see
Snake and any downed enemies.

There are machine gun turrets in this area.  Using them on the Hind or
hoverguards will cause an ALERT.

It is possible to snipe the helicopter pilot with the SVD, which will also
cause an ALERT.  If the pilot is sniped, small explosions will erupt on the
fuselage and the chopper will disintegrate.

Helicopters can also be destroyed with the RPG (see below for the location).

Time to give the Mosin Nagant a try.  Equip it, and the thermal goggles.

Using the Mosin Nagant's scope, follow the zig-zagging path up the mountain.
To the west, on the second incline, is a GRU guard.  Tranq him with the Mosin
Nagant.  A couple of inclines above this guard, up and to the right, there is
another guard by a machine gun turret.  Tranq him with a drugged needle, too.

Head north along the eastern rock face.  Pick up the {SVD AMMO}.  Continue
north along the eastern rock face to find {ANTIDOTE}, {AK-47 AMMO},
{M1911 AMMO}, and {M37 AMMO}.

Before heading west, tranq the guard if you don't have the Mosin Nagant.

Go up the incline to the west and find some [STUN G] in a niche to the north,
a third of the way up the incline.

Continue up the ramp.  There will be a hole in the rock with a tunnel which
will lead to an alcove, visible around the bend.  Within the alcove, there is
{XM16 AMMO}, {SVD AMMO}, {STYPTIC}, and [WP G].

Resume going up the incline to the east, then follow the hairpin turn.  Tranq
the guard to the west if you don't have the Mosin Nagant.  Go up the incline
to the west.  Across the machine gun turret, in a niche, is {XM16 AMMO}.
This niche has a tunnel that will open to the path around the bend.

Follow another bend and go up the ramp to the east.

Above this current ramp is a ledge, which has an incline that goes diagonally
from the east to the west.  At the top of the east/west diagonal is another
guard.  Go to the corner of the ledge, east of the small boulder, and peek
out to tranq him.  Or, wait for the guard to turn to the west then tranq him.

Continue going to the east on the current ramp to find an alcove with a
{BANDAGE}.  Further to the east is a drop off to triangular ledge with
{M37 AMMO}.  If you get this, you'll have to drop below and make your way up
the inclines again.

Go up onto the ledge where the guard has been incapacitated.  There are two
paths from here.

If you go east, go up the steps and follow the thin path to the west to find
{MOSIN NAGANT AMMO} (or {M1911 AMMO} if you didn't get the Mosin Nagant).
You can drop from this path to the thin path below.  Lay prone if you get
spotted.

If you didn't go east, head to the west along the thin path.

When the thin path broadens, to the north, you'll see a series of ramps
flanked by gun turrets.  The southeast building is an armory.  North of the
armory, guarded by a GRU soldier is the food storehouse.  To the west of the
food storehouse is the medical storehouse.  There is one guard south and one
guard north of the medical storehouse.

When the path broadens, hug the eastern rock face until you get to the rock
below the eastern gun turret.  Crawl west around the boulder under the gun
turret.  Lay prone on the west side of the boulder and wait for guard south
of the medical storehouse to go down the ramp.  Keep him in your sights and
when he stops to the south, tranq him with the MK22.

Crawl to the northwest a little bit to the boulder by the ramp.  Wait for him
to look west and tranq the guard next to the food storehouse.

Head east up the ramp and into the armory.  Within, you'll find [TNT] and the
[RPG-7].

Note that the FPV button for the RPG-7 is L1.

I'd recommend getting the TNT after you blow up the food storehouse.

Make your way up the next ramp to the west to the medical storehouse.  Before
going inside, go along the eastern wall.  When the guard is facing west,
quickly peek out and tranq him.  Go inside of the medical storehouse to find
{SERUM}, {SPLINT}, and {DISINFECT}.

Finally go to the east to the food storehouse.  Inside, you'll find three
RUSSIAN RATIONs and a CALORIE MATE.

Before using TNT to blow up the food storehouse, move the guard northwest of
the wooden crates adjacent to the building.

Blow up the food storehouse after the helicopter flies around the mountain.

Then, head north of the storehouses and make your way up onto

This area is roughly rectangular, tilted at an upward angle from south to
north.  There is a zig-zagging trench cut through the incline.  The chopper
continues its sweep around the mountain; this time it goes counter clockwise.

There are a few gun turrets in this area.  One is on the ledge to the north
of Snake's starting position of the area (I'll call this the western gun
turret).  There is another to the northeast by a small building (lower
northeast gun turret).  On the ledge to the northeast is another gun turret
(upper northeast gun turret).  There is one last gun turret near the top of
the mountain (north-most gun turret).

While in the trench, use the cardboard box as much as possible to keep low
to the ground and to go faster up the slope.

There are two guards immediately to the north (to Snake's left when he enters
the area).  One is on the same level as Snake is, while the other is on the
ledge above next to the western gun turret.

With the MK22, tranq the GRU soldier at the same level as Snake.  Leave the
other guard (by the turret) alone.  For now.

Head to the northeast to a building next to the lower northeast gun turret.
This is a small armory.  Within it, you'll find {M37 AMMO}, [SMOKE G] and
[GRENADES].

Go to the northeastern corner of the building.  Look up and to the north to
see a guard by the upper northeast gun turret.  Tranq him.

To the northwest, you can see a guard patrolling the trench.  If you're a
good shot, tranq him with the MK22 from here.  Otherwise, crawl to the
northeast to the steps leading down into the trench.  North of these steps is
a red door.  Crawl northwest up the incline to the west of the door.

Near the lip of the trench, you will see the guard.  When he gets close and
stops, tranq him with the MK22.

Drop down into the trench.  Equip the box and head northwest.

There will be a path going north into an armory.  Before going into the
armory, look on tip-toes to the west.  Remember that one guard by the western
gun turret that we left alone?  Tranq him now as he's making his way north on
his patrol.

Go inside the armory to find [CLAYMORES], {M63 AMMO}, {RPG-7 AMMO},
{SVD AMMO}, and [TNT].

Set a TNT charge in the armory, but don't detonate it yet.

Climb up the steps to the west of the armory.  Go to the northwest corner of
the armory, by the wooden crates.  Wait for the last guard to stand near the
north-most gun turret.  Stand on tip-toes and tranq him.

Detonate the TNT now.

Head northwest into the medical storehouse.  Inside, you'll find {BANDAGE},
{SUTURE KIT}, and {OINTMENT}.

Drop back into the trench and follow it as it goes to the east, southeast,
then finally to the north.

If you want, you can change into your favorite camouflage and face paint
before exiting the area.

Go to the red door and enjoy the cutscenes.

SPECIAL CUTSCENE:
After Ocelot comments about Eva's boots, and when Ocelot is walking away Eva,
press R1 to see Eva imitate Ocelot's hand gesture.

This isn't recommended, but, 

A FUN NOTE:  You can use the SVD or Mosin Nagant to shoot at the soldiers in
             Groznyj Grad.  However, this will likely trigger an ALERT!
             Multiple Hinds (or hoverguards) will swarm from the north.  Good

Recall that red door near the lower northeastern gun turret?  That's where
we're going.

There isn't a Hind circling the area any more.  But, two of the regular GRU
soldiers have been replaced by guys sporting flame-throwers.  These guys lug
around two tanks of fuel on their backs.  You will hear a clanking sound when
these guys walk.  Foreshadowing, anyone?

Instead of a GRU soldier by the upper northeastern gun turret, there is a
flame-thrower walking the trench nearby.  The guard patrolling by the western
gun turret has also been replaced by a flame-thrower.

There is still a GRU soldier patrolling by the north-most gun turret.  There
is another GRU soldier by the medical storehouse.

The last GRU soldier is patrolling the wooden bridge south of the armory (in
the middle of the area) toward the ledge above the red door.

A funny note about the flame-throwers.  If you shoot at the lower valve
between the tanks with a lethal weapon, the fuel will leak.  The flame-
throwers will do a funky dance trying in vain to stop the leak, but there
will be a small fire which will spread and consume them.  They explode in a
large fireball.  The explosion will trigger a CAUTION if other enemies are
still conscious.

If you want, you can go straight to the red door.  But, there are a couple
enemies that will yield batteries.  If you really want them, I recommend
following the additional instructions with asterisks (***).

Head south along the trench.  On the east side of the trench (left side when
south is up), there is a ledge.  You can roll onto this ledge.  Crawl south
on this ledge then tranq the flame-thrower when he appears in the trench.

If this is too difficult, head south along the trench.  Stop and lay prone
before the bend.  A flame-thrower will go up the steps leading to the upper
northeast gun turret.  Tranq him.

*** Head north along the trench and tranq the guard by the north-most turret.
Go to his body, then tranq the guard by the medical storehouse.  Shake him
down twice; once to get {M37 AMMO}, twice to get a {BATTERY}.  Go into the
medical storehouse to get more {BANDAGE}, {SUTURE KIT}, and {OINTMENT}.
Back track to where you were before. ***

Go to the east of the upper northeast gun turret.  Slide into the depression.

Peek out to the west and tranq the wooden bridge GRU soldier below.  If
you're not going for the items and ammo, you can just wait until he goes to
the west.

Drop onto the ledge above the red door.  Then drop/roll onto the ground by
the red door.

*** If you tranqed the wooden bridge GRU soldier, shake him down once to get
a {BATTERY}. ***

*** Tranq the flame-thrower to the west.  Go into the armory (in the middle

When you get to the ground floor, head southeast to find some {M1911 AMMO},
{XM16 AMMO}, and {M37 AMMO}.

Head north along the corridor.  Near the end of the hallway, on the east
side, there are {BANDAGE} and {OINTMENT}.

At the T-intersection, if you go to the right, you'll find {AK-47 AMMO} and
{MK22 AMMO}.  Further to the right, beyond some oil drums is a {BATTERY}.

You can hang over the side of the railing and go east, and climb back up.
Or, you can just take a few steps away and shoot at an oil drum to cause them
all to explode.  The latter option will cause the bats to go crazy, so use a
sonar ping to placate them.

Head west along the walkway, then go north.

At the end of the walkway, there is a ladder.  Roll or drop down to the lower
level.

The lower level where the Fury's battle takes             ___--ŻŻ____
place is rectangular.  It's a series of six              |S         A|
hallways going north to south.  Crude ASCII              |___________|
representation to the right:                             |           |

The height of the north/south pathways are               | | | | |   |
varied.  The two on the far left and the                 | | g   x | |
two on the far right are taller than the two             |   | | | | |
in the center.                                           | | |       |
                                                         | | | | | | |
There is a raised ledge going east/west at                 m       k 
the north of all of the hallways.  At the
north is a locked door.

There are some oil drums in the northeast, northwest and southeast corners.

The hallways, to the south, drop off to a bottomless chasm.

There are red water pipes laced across the ceiling.  Shooting one with a
lethal weapon will cause water to leak.  It can be somewhat difficult to
anticipate where the water will land, especially with a pyromaniac firebat
flying around the area.  But, this will douse flames.


 'S' is {SVD AMMO}     'A' is {AK-47 AMMO}      'g' is [GRENADES]

 'x' is {XM16 AMMO}    'm' is {M1911 AMMO}      'k' is {MK22 AMMO}

The grenades and XM16 ammo are on ledges between columns.


For once, I'm not going to laud the use of the thermal goggles.  When the
Fury uses a flame attack, the image of the fire can burn Snake's eyes,
blinding him.

The thermal goggles can be used to track the Fury or to check his position,
but be careful!

If Snake hasn't been caught on fire or in an explosion, a word of warning:
Snake will do a painful flip and land on his stomach.  Therefore, it is a
very good idea to stay away from the southern lip.  Otherwise, if the Fury
blasts Snake while he's near the southern end, Snake will do some acrobatics
off of the platform and do a flip to his death.

Watch out for the flames from the Fury's flame-thrower and thrusters.

When/if Snake catches fire, stand up or kneel and make use of the cardboard
box.  It will quickly extinguish the fire and minimize damage done to Snake.
Rolling a couple times has the same effect.

If Snake gets severely burned, go into the CURE menu and use ointment and a
bandage.


The Fury will use his flame-thrower.  A lot.  In the air or on the ground,
he wants things to BUUUUURRNNNNNNN.

Although I warned not to go to the south, do it just once at the very
beginning of the fight.  Head south and look for which side is brighter.  
It's usually the east side.  (If both sides are equally bright, then he's on
the west side).  Stand near the south-most column looking to the east.  Peek
out and tranq the Fury three times.  Step behind the column when the Fury
retaliates.  If he's still there, cap him three more times.  Repeat as many
times as possible while the Fury is in the same place.  Otherwise, head
north.

Try to make use of the tactical reload technique:  While in FPV, fire a shot,
tap R2 twice, fire another shot, repeat.  This will make the battle go by
faster, especially if done with the Mosin Nagant.  Good luck!

When the Fury gets bored (i.e., when he's not getting attacked), he will
prepare to use his thrusters.  The Fury will stand still and do a countdown.
4... 3... 2... 1... Lift-off!

Take advantage of the sitting duck, and prior to lift off, tranq him (with
the Mosin Nagant) as many times as you can.

After getting hit three times, the Fury won't count down, but he'll take off
and re-locate.  Watch out for the flames from his thrusters.

You can try to tranq the Fury when he's in the air, if you want.

Stand between the columns at the north and wait for the Fury to stop flying
around.  Use the sonar to get a bead on him.  When you hear the metallic
clank of gas tanks, he has landed.  Stay hidden between columns, and make
note of which hallway he's going to patrol.

If he approaches the hallway where Snake is, don't panic.  Lean against the
column and wait for the Fury to get near.  Stop leaning against the wall,
and go on the offensive.  Roll into him when he's close to rounding the
corner.  The Fury will fall to the ground.  Who's fooling around, now?  While
he's getting up, as quickly as you can, turn Snake around and tranq the Fury
three times.  Take refuge a bit to the south, using the column as a shield.
Use the box if Snake catches fire.

If the Fury goes down another hallway, wait for him to commit to that hallway
and stalk behind him.  Roll and/or tranq him (with the Mosin Nagant) as many
times as possible.  You can also PPK him.

For the first half of his stamina/life meter, the Fury will primarily stay on
the ground, and will occasionally use his rockets to move to another hallway.

When his health/stamina is at half, he'll complain, "My flight suit is
ripped!"

After that, he's more prone to running around and using his flame-thrower.

Repeat the above strategies until the Fury is defeated.

There is an alternative way to defeat the Fury.  Lay prone near the locked
door to the north and snipe the Fury (with the Mosin Nagant) when the
opportunity presents itself.  The Fury will do many countdowns since he's not
getting attacked much.

Either way, after the fight watch the cutscene.



After the cutscene, step to the west to find the <FIRE CAMO>.

This camo will reduce damage from fire and explosions by 50%.


A little to the north is some {DISINFECT}, with some {MK22 AMMO} on the
opposite side of the hallway.

On the east side of the rail walkway is a {SP/MK22}.

At the end of the hallway to the north, at the base of a ladder, is some
{BANDAGE}.

West of the bandages is some {OINTMENT}.

part of this area by some crates.  To
the west is a set of red stairs up to a red platform.  Under the platform are
{M1911 AMMO}, {XM16 AMMO}, [SMOKE G], and [GRENADES].

To the immediate north are a series                [1]     [2]  a  [3]
of metallic storage units.  There is a
GRU soldier, 'a,' patrolling these storage         [4]     [5]     [6]

Under storage unit '7' is {XM16 AMMO}.
Under storage unit '9' is [CHAFF G].

To the west of storage units '1,' '4,' and '7,' is a series of chest high
concrete barricades.  To the west of the barricade are three hangars.

There are three more hangars further to the west, near the western wall of
Groznyj Grad Southwest.

There is a GRU soldier, 'b,' patrolling the northeastern corner of the three
eastern hangars (the ones closest to the storage units).  There is another
guard, 'c,' by the southwestern corner of the same hangars.

One guard, 'd,' goes north/south on the east side of the western hangars.

After getting control of Snake, get onto the crate immediately to the north
of Snake's position.  When Guard 'a' shows up, tranq him.  Get the items
under the red platform and under the storage units, if needed.

Go north between '7' and '8' then west between '4' and '7.'  Roll to the west
between the middle and southern hangars.  Head north along the western faces
of the eastern hangars to the exit.

If you want to get a {SP/M1911}, head south after passing by '7.'  Tranq
Guard 'c.'  Continue west toward the western hangars.  Tranq Guard 'd.'
Go onto the rear of the armored car to get the suppressor.

Head north, then when Guard 'b' isn't looking, go a little bit east.  If the
guard at the northeast gets suspicious, tranq him.

Trust me.

The food storehouse has two CALORIE MATEs and a RUSSIAN RATION, by the way.

There's a vent system that terminates to the north of this storehouse.  The
vent system goes into Groznyj Grad Southeast.

The Groznyj Grad Weapons Lab is located to the north.  The destination is
the East Wing of the Weapons Lab.

There is an armored car between Guard '3' and '4.'  On its back, there are
[CHAFF G], [GRENADES] and [STUN G].

The armored car to the east of this one, east of Guard '4,' has {MK22 AMMO},
[SMOKE G], and [WP G].

The stuff on the armored cars can be collected after doing something in the
next area.

Snake will emerge in the southern part of this area, at the southwest corner
of the hangar.

After entering, go to the east.  Wait at the southeast corner when Guard '2'
faces north.  Tranq or CQC slam him.

Head north along this alley.

Go around the northwest corner of the wall.  Head east along the southern
wall until you get to a lamp post.  Head north from the lamp post and go to
the south of a large metal storage box.  Knock on the box.  Guard '4' will
go clockwise around the box to investigate.

While he's distracted, head northwest and enter the door into

I would recommend collecting the weapons, items and medicinal plants after
taking care of Raikov.

There is plenty of funny stuff to do with Raikov.
-- Stand in his way.  Don't move.  Raikov will get impatient and will do the
   "ball tap" on Snake.  People who played Metal Gear Online with Subsistence
   will know what I'm talking about; this was Raikov's special CQC move.
-- While away from other guards, wear the mask and bump into Raikov and let
   him look at Snake's face.  He'll say, "How beautiful."  This will trigger
   an ALERT, though.
-- Punch Raikov.  In retaliation, Raikov will PPK Snake similar to how Raiden
   PPK'd in MGS2.  This will trigger an alert.
-- When there are no enemies around, wait for Raikov to pass by.  Then change
   to any camo and stalk behind Raikov.  Grab him from behind with CQC then
   interrogate him by pressing and holding L3 a few times.  He will mention,
   "April 30, the day we met" which is a reference to dialog from MGS2.
   Raikov will also talk about Volgin's weaknesses:  water and bright colored
   mushrooms (Russian Glow Caps).
-- Trigger a CAUTION near Raikov (but out of his sight).  After using the
   red intercom, he'll seek refuge... in a bathroom stall.

If you put Raikov to sleep and a guard happens upon him, he'll say, "Major
Raikov, you really have to stop sleeping in here."  This is especially funny
after getting a CAUTION, putting Raikov to sleep, and knocking on the
bathroom wall to grab the attention of a guard.

The main objective of this area is to get Raikov into the locker room area,
on the second floor.  You can intercept him any where from the south stairs
to the locker room area.  If he's far from the 2F locker room, you'll have to
drag him up there.  Make sure that Snake isn't seen while doing so.

One way to do this is to go east and use the Cig Gas Spray (or Knock out
Handkerchief) on Guard '2' when he's near the mousetrap room.  Then, go up
the southern stairs and knock out Guard '3.'  Knock on the wall to the north
of the black sign, marked as 'k.'  Go to the south of the door by the red
sign.  Raikov will come and investigate.  Run up and use the Cig Gas Spray
on him.  Drag him to the locker room.

( If you want to, you can kill Raikov before or after Snake drags him into
  the locker room.  Make absolutely sure that Snake isn't seen.  There will
  be something funny later in the game if you kill Raikov. )



After taking care of Raikov and getting him into the locker room, watch the
cutscene and obtain the <OFFICER CAMO>.

NOTE:  If you allow a guard to see Raikov after Snake gets the Officer camo,
       it will be Mission Failed.  This counts as a Continue.


Recommended Face paint:  Mask
Recommended Camouflage:  Officer


When Snake wears the Officer Camo and the Mask, he will fool (most) people
into thinking that he is Raikov.  Take advantage of this to explore the
rest of Groznyj Grad.

Guards will salute when you approach them.  Be sure to return the salute by
pressing (T).  Holding (T) for too long or not saluting back may make some
guards suspicious and trigger an ALERT.

There is a {BOOK} (another kind of book, *wink*) in the northwest corner of
the library.

Go into the 1F Armory.  A {SP/MK22} is located in the southwest corner.  To
the east of the suppressor, on a crate is {XM16 AMMO}.  {M37 AMMO} and
{M63 AMMO} are on crates in the middle of the armory.  {MK22 AMMO} can be
found on a crate in the southeast corner.  In the northeast corner is the
[SCORPION - Sub machine gun].

Go into the medical (Med) room.  The {ANTIDOTE} is on the crate to the east.
The {BANDAGE} is on the crate to the south.  The {SUTURE KIT} and {OINTMENT}
are on the crates to the north.

In the 2F computer room, there is {CIG SPRAY AMMO} under the center desk.

Under the western table in the dining area, you can find {HANDKER AMMO}.

The four medicinal plants are along the 1F western wall to the south.

Since the guards think Snake is Raikov, you can do some funny stuff without
worrying (too much) about getting an ALERT.  Punch them for fun.  For even
more fun, stand real close in front of a guard, and while he's saluting, go
into FPV, look down and punch.  If done correctly, this will knock the guard
out with one hit!  X_X  Ow.

Collect the weapons, items and medicinal plants now if you want.

There is some {CIG SPRAY AMMO} in the middle of the computer room on the
second floor.

If you want to explore the rest of Groznyj Grad, wreak some havoc with the
TNT, and get the in-game digital camera (with which you can take pictures and
store them on your memory card), read about the next areas.

If not, head south of the lockers, then west.  Go through the door and skip
to (OPSE-WLMW)

The southwest part of this area             | 2             |

{BANDAGE}.  Under the next one to the       |___________|
north is a {DISINFECT].  Under the
one to the west of this one has a
{STYPTIC}.

Under the northwestern tank is {MK22 AMMO}.

On the back of the armored car, north of the tanks, are {AK-47 AMMO} and
{MK22 AMMO}.

Guard '1' goes east/west, starting from the middle of the tanks.  Guard '2'
goes north/south between the tanks.

Guard '3' patrols north/south.

Knock all three guards out.  The easiest way would be to roll into them.

There is a sewer entrance to the northeast, obstructed by horizontal pipes.
Stationed south of these pipes is another slumbering Great Dane, 'd.'

To the east of Guard '3' is a set of red steps.  At the top of the steps is
some {M63 AMMO}.

West of the sewer entrance is a large truck.  Snake can climb into this truck
to be transported.  We'll make use of this in a little bit.

In the northwest corner of the area is an armory.  Within it are {M63 AMMO},
{XM16 AMMO}, {M1911 AMMO}, {M37 AMMO}, and [TNT].

Collect the ammo that you need.

Make sure all three guards are not awake.

Switch to any camo, head into the armory and set a TNT charge.  Don't
detonate it yet.

Make your way southeast to the large transport truck.  Roll or press (T) to
climb into the truck's cargo area.  Detonate the TNT now.

Change back to the Officer camo, and equip cardboard box A.

Watch the mini-cutscene and Snake will be transported back to

Head to the west to find two soldiers guarding a door.  When you get close
to them, there will be a short cutscene of Snake going through the door.

Watch the cutscenes as Sokolov explains the Shagohod's progress.

SPECIAL CUTSCENE:
When Snake talks to Sokolov, zoom in on the upper-right hand corner of the
chalkboard by pressing (T) and moving the camera.  Notice the five digit
number?  Five digits.  Hmmmm...

Snake's ... a man?!?  Of course he is.  But how could Volgin know he's not
really Raikov?  I think Volgin's an elf; he can tell by the packages.

@_@ Holy cow!  Snake gets the crap beat out of him.  Be sure to SAVE.

Listen to what happens to Sokolov as he becomes a ghost of a man.

The following (next three paragraphs) will happen with a black screen.

Depending on how well you healed Snake in the CURE menu, Volgin will comment
on Snake's condition (similar to how Psycho Mantis in MGS1 commented on games
you liked to play by reading the memory card).  If you healed Snake very
well, Volgin will say that Snake has "a beautiful body ... like a newborn
baby."  If not, he'll make remarks about Snake's scars.

After Volgin says, "Well then, let's get started," press and hold L2 (or R2)
until the next cutscene starts.  Do not let go!  Pressing and holding L2 (R2)
during this whole time will minimize the damage done to Snake.

If you let go of L2 (R2) before the next cutscene starts, Snake will sustain
all the damage Volgin inflicts.  To be safe, hold L2 (R2) until Volgin says,
"But, I am a patient man."

Watch the cutscenes.

Interesting how this Snake lost his eye.  #_o  

SPECIAL CUTSCENE:
When Ocelot walks out of the room twirling his Single Action Army, press R1
to see the Boss imitate Ocelot's hand gesture.

SPECIAL CUTSCENE:
Press R1 when the Boss leans close to Snake after she shoots him.  Look over
her shoulder to see ... a ghost... holding up a sign with the same five
digit number that was on Sokolov's chalkboard.

Notice when you look in FPV, the periphery of the screen will be faded.

Off to jail for Snake!

Snake will find himself in the central cell in the Torture Room building.

While in the jail cell, save the game.  Para-Medic will talk about Dracula.

Notice when you look in FPV, the periphery of the screen will be faded.

Pick up the {FORK} in the southwest corner of the cell.  This instrument will
allow Snake to eat a food item without having to go through the backpack.  A
single stab will do the trick on single-serving food items.  Stab an animal,
stamina increases (and any other effects the animal has on Snake).

NOTE:  Food eaten with the {FORK} will be cataloged in the Food History of
       the CURE menu.  However!  These food items will not count for your
       food collection (if you're going for the MARKHOR rank -- i.e., all
       forty-four animals + four medicinal plants).  This is especially true
       for the last three animals.

+---------------------------------------------------------------------------+

The fork can also be used as a weapon.  Who needs a knife when you've got a
fork?!?!?

Speaking of replacing a use of the knife, go into the CURE menu.  See those
two circles?  Use the fork to pop out a Fake Death Pill from Snake's thigh
(Thanks, Boss!), and a transmitter from Snake's shoulder (Dammit, Ocelot!).

NOTE:  If you refrain from removing the transmitter, there will be a surprise
       later in another area.  

Did you remember to remove the transmitter in Snake's shoulder?

There are a number of ways to escape from the prison.

Hiding under the bed will NOT work.  The guard will lay down and look.

Knocking and PPKing will make the guard admonish Snake.  Shuddup in there,
willya?!


RECOMMENDED
+++++++++++++++  Did you catch the five digit number in those special R1
+             +  scenes?  If you did, wait until the guard goes to the
+ OPTION ZERO +  bathroom.  Then, press SELECT, tune to that five digit
+             +  number, and press SELECT again.  Escape.
+++++++++++++++



IF YOU DIDN'T CATCH THE FIVE DIGIT NUMBER, KEEP READING.  :)



RECOMMENDED
++++++++++++++  The guard will throw a food item three times into the jail
+            +  cell.  Instead of eating it, pick up the food item and throw
+ OPTION ONE +  it through the jail bar opening.
+            +
++++++++++++++  Repeat for the second and third food items.  A special
                cutscene will play.

Johnny will discuss the foreign relations between the two countries and will
give Snake a pack of smokes.  Hey!  These are the Cig Gas Spray.

SPECIAL CUTSCENE:
When Johnny shows the picture of his family, press R1 to see a familiar
five digit number:  144.75.

More importantly, Johnny shows Snake the way to freedom.  144.75 is the
frequency used to open the jail cell door.

This is the same frequency that was shown on Sokolov's chalkboard and by the
ghost.

Knock on the jail bars to get Johnny close by.  Use the Cig Spray to knock
him out.  Then press SELECT, tune the radio to 144.75, and press (O).

Or, wait until Johnny has to go to the bathroom.  Fans of MGS1 and MGS2 may
recall the unfortunate guard named Johnny Sasaki who has bowel problems.  Now
we know that it runs in the family (get it?  hehe).

While Johnny is in the bathroom, use the frequency.

++++++++++++++  Equip the Single Action Army.  Use the recently recovered
+            +  Fake Death Pill.  Johnny will panic and open the jail door.
+ OPTION TWO +  Don't worry about the "!" noise.  Remember, it's not an ALERT
+            +  unless you see the word "ALERT" on the screen.
++++++++++++++
                After Johnny turns around and exits the cell, use the Revival
Pill and exit the cell.


++++++++++++++++  Vomit.  Yes.  You read that correctly.  Vomit.
+              +
+ OPTION THREE +  Go into the CURE menu.  Spin Snake round several times.
+              +  Press START again.  Bleearrrghhhh.
++++++++++++++++
                  When Johnny comes in to investigate, equip the Single
Action Army, and steadily tap (O) until Johnny passes out.  


Whichever option you choose, head west out of the cell into the corridor.

Shake Johnny down twice to get [SMOKE G] and INSTANT NOODLES!

(Johnny can be killed by the fork, if you feel sadistic).

Waiting too long will allow Johnny to regain consciousness and signal an
ALERT.

If you didn't get the {CAMERA} earlier, follow the corridor to the north, and
go through the last door on the left.

Otherwise, go across the corridor to the west.  Turn left, then right to go
back into

Listen to the radio conversation.

Did you remember to remove the transmitter in Snake's shoulder?  Last chance!

To the southeast, on the top landing, there's some {SAA AMMO}.  To the
southwest of the same landing is some {LF MED}.

At the base of the stairs to the west is a RUSSIAN RATION.

Head to the north.

As you go north, you'll run into a large metal gate.

Ignore all the Great Danes and make your way north.

Climb/roll onto the walkway to the left.  Crawl through the vent.  Head
north, then crawl through the vent to the right.

Go to the north.  Ascend the first flight (southern) stairs on the right 
side.  Continue north along this walkway.

There is some {SAA AMMO} to the south, under some corroded bars.  Continuing
south, there is more {SAA AMMO} by a gate with a Great Dane.  Going through
the nearby vent will allow Snake to go onto a walkway with a {LF MED}.
This back tracking is unnecessary and will allow the Great Danes to close in
on Snake.

If you want {SAA AMMO}, a RUSSIAN RATION and INSTANT NOODLES, follow the left
(western) walkway to the north, and drop into the water.  In the water, to
the east of these items, is some {STYPTIC}.  Go north and ascend the second
flight (northern) steps on the right.

Either way, after going north on the right side, crawl through the nearby
vent.  Go to the north.  Crawl through the vent to the left.

I love the music during this part.

Continue to ignore the Great Danes.

Roll into the middle channel and head north to the light.

Watch the cutscene.  Enjoy the music as the enemies chase Snake.  Like a
fugitive, Snake does a swan dive into

Kanashii.  Kanashii.  Ore wa kanashii.  When I saw this in the Japanese
trailers, I was so excited!  This next part is very strange, yet cool.

This area will appear somewhat familiar.  It's a re-creation of the mangrove
swamp in Ponizovje South.  But, it's flooded and the trees are on fire!

Snake must wade through the river to the north.

*****************************************************************************
*                                                                           *
*                         BOSS BATTLE:  THE SORROW                          *
*                                                                           *
*****************************************************************************
                                                                  (BBAT-SRRW)

Why did I say there are five enemies?  The Sorrow will show Snake the sorrow
caused by killing people.  Even though you may not have lethally killed the
four bosses thus far (the Pain, Fear, End, and Fury), they will still appear
on the river.  The fifth enemy is the Sorrow, himself.

If you've been killing people prior to this point in the game, the Sorrow
will summon the ghosts of the people you killed.  There is a maximum number
of one hundred (100) ghosts.  Depending on how you killed them, they will
say different things.  (If you killed Raikov, you will see a naked ghost
holding his privates running to the south -- a familiar scene for those who
have played MGS2).

Every time a ghost touches Snake, Snake's health meter will decrease a bit.
Periodically, there will be skulls drifting down the river.  These have the
same effect.

Therefore, it is a very good idea to avoid the specters -- especially since
the main goal of wading upstream is to get the Sorrow's awesome camo.

The Sorrow has a tentacle-like attack.  It's somewhat reminiscent of the
effect used in the movie "The Abyss."  Each time Snake is hit by the attack,
there is a brief snapshot that flashes on the screen.  Some of these
snapshots can be disturbing.  To evade this attack, move diagonally to
one side (northeast or northwest).

Getting hit by the Sorrow's attack will knock Snake down.  Should this happen
near a bunch of ghosts, expect Snake's life meter to decrease quite a bit.

Don't try to swim underwater.  If you do, a KGB soldier will hold Snake's
head below the surface, causing Snake to die prematurely, therefore not
allowing you to obtain the Sorrow's camo.*

The Cobra members you've faced will appear in the order you fought them.  As
such, it's quite easy to tell how much farther north you have to go.  After
you pass the Fury, you'll see a skeleton in the river.  The Sorrow will get
agitated.  He will keep saying that Snake doesn't belong here.

Touch the skeleton, and Snake will die.

Do NOT select "Continue" nor "Exit."  Instead, use the Revival Pill!
(If you do select "Continue" a few times, Zero will tell you to use the
Revival Pill at the Snake is Dead screen).

* If you don't want the Sorrow's camo, then use the Revival Pill after being
  drowned.

By the way, you won't get the Sorrow's camo until Snake gets his gear
returned to him.

Watch the cutscene.

 ~ If you did NOT remove the transmitter, you will have to face Four (4)
   Ocelot members in this area.  There will be a perpetual CAUTION phase.
   This does NOT count as an ALERT.  However, it is possible to trigger an
   ALERT if an Ocelot unit member spots Snake, or if you use the Single
   Action Army revolver.  They have VERY keen vision, so be careful!

( The only advantage of not removing the transmitter is to see a funny
  tongue-in-cheek cutscene behind the waterfall.  This cutscene is unlocked
  if you choose "I like MGS3!" at the beginning of the game )

Watch the cutscenes and listen to the radio conversations.

Go across the stream to the east.  Run to the north along the eastern rock
wall and follow the path to the west.  Go atop the makeshift log bridge and
continue west.  After hopping down from the log on the western shore, make
your way up the shallow stream (north of the little cascade).

Follow the curving stream to the north, and go onto the eastern shore.  Head
east, then north as the path curves.  By now, you should see a large
waterfall to the north.

Head to the northwest and make your way up the winding stream.

Watch the cutscenes.  Mmmm.  If you had the transmitter until the previous
area, you'll see a special cutscene before Snake gets his gear returned to
him.

SAVE if you want.

Watch more cinematics.

Look in your camouflage menu.  Scroll up to find the Sorrow's <SPIRIT CAMO>.

This awesome camo will prevent Snake from making any noise when moving
(i.e., footsteps), which means that Snake can run right up to an enemy
without them noticing any sounds.  Also, when Snake grabs an enemy in a CQC
chokehold, Snake's stamina will increase.

Also, look in your food inventory.  If you had any instant noodles before,
guess who ate them?  Eva!  >:0

If you want to re-capture the Tsuchinoko, you'll have to back-track south to
Tikhogornyj, as outlined in the next area.

If not, head north collecting the {DISINFECT} to the northeast and {SP/MK22}
to the northwest of the chamber.  Continue north along the hallway to find a
{SP/M1911} in an alcove to the right.  Follow the northwest diagonal and find
a {STYPTIC} in another alcove.  Keep going north along the hallway to find a
{BANDAGE}.  On the opposite side, in another alcove, is some {MK22 AMMO}.  I
would also recommend collecting (but not eating) the Russian Glow Cap here
and further north.  Maintain the trek to the north to find some {AK-47 AMMO}.
At the end of the hallway is some {M1911 AMMO} and {CARDBOARD BOX B}.

Go south a bit, and go through the door to the west.  You'll find a
RUSSIAN RATION to the west and some {MK22 AMMO} in the northeast corner.

Ah.  That was refreshing.  The main reason to come back here is to
re-capture the Tsuchinoko for the IFP.  Southeast of this area's entrance
wriggles the Tsuchinoko.  It's to the southeast of the large tree next to the
lagoon.  It may be a bit hard to see, but it's flopping around.  Equip the
thermal goggles to see it better.  Tranq it, then dive into the lagoon.

Near the southwest, at the bottom of the pool, is <KABUKI FACE PAINT>.

If you haven't already, head north collecting the {DISINFECT} to the
northeast and {SP/MK22} to the northwest of the chamber where Snake cooked a
snake (Snake Eaterrrrr).

I'd recommend tranqing (at least) one Tree Frog.  But don't eat it!

Continue north along the hallway to find a {SP/M1911} in an alcove to the
right.  Follow the northwest diagonal and find a {STYPTIC} in another alcove.

Keep going north along the hallway to find a {BANDAGE}.  On the opposite
side, in another alcove, is some {MK22 AMMO}.  I would also recommend
collecting the Russian Glow Cap here and a bit further north.  But don't eat
them!

Maintain the trek to the north to find some {AK-47 AMMO}.  At the end of the
hallway is some {M1911 AMMO} and {CARDBOARD BOX B}.

Go south a bit, and go through the door to the west.  There is a
RUSSIAN RATION to the west.  You'll find some {MK22 AMMO} in the northeast
corner.

Make sure that you have all the food items you want; after going into the
next area, you won't be able to access Tikhogornyj.

Watch the cutscene.

The Great Danes are in the same positions.  The one to the west will be
awake initially, and then will go to sleep.  The other one is still sleeping
by the sewer entrance.

The supplies under the tanks and in the armored car are still there.  Under
the southeastern tank is a {BANDAGE}.  Under the next one to the north is a
{DISINFECT].  Under the one to the west of this one has a {STYPTIC}.

Under the northwestern tank is {MK22 AMMO}.

On the back of the armored car, north of the tanks, are {AK-47 AMMO} and
{MK22 AMMO}.

The armory in the northwest have {SAA AMMO}, {XM16 AMMO}, {M37 AMMO}, and
[TNT].

The four enemies are in the middle of the two rows of tanks.  Two of the
guards still go on their regular patrols (one goes north/south, while the
other one goes east/west) after a couple minutes.  The other two guards will
remain stationary.

There are also two guards in the watch towers to the northeast and northwest
of the tanks (but south of the Weapons Lab West Corridor).

I would recommend not picking up any supplies/ammo among the tanks.

Go to the south of where the armored car parked in the cutscene.  Roll to the
east.  A guard will become suspicious.

Don't worry about it and continue heading to the east.  Hug the east wall and
go north.

Once you're under the Weapons Lab West Corridor, head west to the middle of
the area and continue north.

Since there are no enemies near the armory, pick up any ammo you want/need.

Otherwise, go onto the truck and equip cardboard box A.

Once again, you'll get transported to

If you want the stuff in the armory, use the Cig Spray on the guard when he's
in the doorway.  Remember, a {SP/MK22} is located in the southwest corner.
To the east of the suppressor, on a crate is {XM16 AMMO}.  {M37 AMMO} and
{M63 AMMO} are on crates in the middle of the armory.  {MK22 AMMO} can be
found on a crate in the southeast corner.  In the northeast corner is
{SCORPION AMMO}.

Go up the northern stairs.  Under the western table in the dining area, you
can find {HANDKER AMMO}.

Recognize that yellow line?

Watch the mini-cutscene as Snake makes his way to the door leading to the
Shagohod.

Listen to the radio conversation.

If you want, you can follow the yellow line to the west (to the Groznyj Grad
Weapons Lab West Corridor) to find {LF MED}, {SP/M1911} and {SP/XM16} where
those two guards were earlier.

If not, head through the door.

Equip the C3.  You can plant the charges while dressed as a Maintenance
Worker.  With regards to placing the explosive, you're not required to plant
the C3 on the fuel tank itself.  To plant C3 on the tank, lean against it and
press (S).  You can also set it on the ground next to the fuel tank.  If
you're too far, Snake won't
be able to set the charge,
at all.                                             Ground floor

There are three Maintenance                      Legend:       mmmmm = stairs
workers (Mechanics) on the ground
floor.

One is located to the west,
marked as 'a'; he's fiddling with a bunch of computers.  One meanders
east/west, inspecting the front of the Shagohod up close, 'b.'  The third one
can be found going back and forth from the northeast fuel tank up the ramp to
the eastern side of the Shagohod, 'c.'

Two more Maintenance workers are on scaffolding on the second story, next to
the Shagohod.  One is on the third story.

The Shagohod hangar is HUGE.  It's three stories tall.  There are a CRAZY
number of those red ALERT intercoms on all four walls, especially on the
ground floor.

There are ledges along the east and west walls.  To get onto the eastern
ledge, climb the ladder on the east wall.  To get onto the third story ledge,
head south along the second story ledge and climb the ladder.  To get to the
western ledge, go north on the third ledge until you see a yellow beam that
goes east/west.  Walk along the beam to the other side.

In the northeast corner on the second floor ledge is a CALORIE MATE.
In the northeast corner on the third floor ledge is {HANDKER AMMO}.
In the northwest corner on the third floor ledge is {CIG SPRAY AMMO}.

West of the southeastern steps are some cardboard boxes.  Nearby, you can
find {MOSIN NAGANT AMMO}.

More {MOSIN NAGANT AMMO} can be found in the southwest corner (after going
up the southwestern steps).  

{MK22 AMMO} can be found south of the computer banks that Mechanic 'a' is
using.  The ammo can be found in the niche under the staircase/scaffolding
of the Shagohod.

A RUSSIAN RATION can be found on the third story, in the southwest.  Go up
the long flight of stairs in the southeast.

Under the eastern truck 't,' north of the Shagohod, is some INSTANT NOODLES.
Under the western truck 't,' north of the Shagohod, is some {LF MED}.


Make your way down to the ground floor.

Head north on the east side of the hangar while Mechanic 'b' is facing to the
west.  Stay close to the Shagohod as you head north to the eastern fuel tank.
Equip the C3 and plant the first C3 charge on 'E-FT.'

Unequip the C3.

Go east to the eastern wall while Guard '4' is going to the south.  Then head
north along the wall and lean against the rail overlooking 'NE-FT.'

When Mechanic 'c' stops fiddling with the tank and heads up the ramp at the
same time that Guard '2' is looking to the west, roll over the rail.  Go
between the fuel tank and the large metal storage unit to the left.  Equip
the C3 and plant the second charge on 'NE-FT.'

Unequip the C3.

Listen to the radio conversation with Eva.

Head north.  Hug the north wall and go west.

After emerging in front of the western truck, head to the southwest and use
the Cig Spray on Guard '1.'  Go to the north side of the northwestern tank.
Equip the C3 and plant the third charge on 'NW-FT.'

Unequip the C3.

Go up the stairs to the south.  Make your way to the west of 'W-FT,' between
the fuel tank and the western wall.  Kneel and change camo (you don't have to
now, if you don't want).

Recommended Camouflage:  Sneaking Suit

While kneeling, equip the C3 and plant the last charge by 'W-FT.'

Watch the cutscenes, then SAVE.

There is a time limit to this fight:  Five (5) minutes.

When there are a couple minutes left, there will be a warning about how much
time is left.  If you don't defeat him in five minutes, it'll be a Mission
Failed.

It won't count as a kill if you use lethal weapons, but you won't receive his
awesome camo if you do so.  Therefore, it is STRONGLY advised to stamina kill
this boss.  His camo will be INCREDIBLY handy later in the game.

Volgin and Snake will ride the rectangular large cargo elevator to a lower
floor.  On the underside of the catwalk, there are water pipes.

There is some {SAA AMMO} at the start of the fight to the northeast.
{XM16 AMMO} can also be found in the north.  {MK22 AMMO} can be found to the
northwest.  {M1911 AMMO} is in the southwest.  {AK-47 AMMO} is in the
southeast.

Ocelot will watch from the catwalk above and cheer on Snake.  On occasion,
he'll toss down some ammo.

At the very beginning of the boss fight, tranq Volgin.  Or, better, yet, go
up to Volgin and CQC slam him.

If you choose to CQC Volgin, you can use the roll to drain more of Volgin's
stamina.  Run in his direction, and when Snake's feet are very close to
Volgin's body, press (X) to roll.  Only use the roll attack once if you did
the CQC slam from the front.  If you're able to do the CQC slam after CQC
grabbing Volgin from the side/behind (do the slam by re-pressing circle and
forward with the left analog stick), you can use the roll attack a couple
times.

If you're not comfortable doing this, tranq Volgin (with the Mosin Nagant)
when Volgin's on the ground.

Volgin will create a charge around his body before standing up.  Therefore,
after each successful attack, roll away to avoid damage.

After that, Volgin will generate an electrical shield in the front of his
body.  This shield can repel weapons fire from the front.  As such, do not
attack Volgin from the front!

Keep your distance from Volgin!  Only attack when Volgin has his back exposed
or is weakened/distracted.  Make the most of your opportunities.

Try to make use of the tactical reload technique:  While in FPV, fire a shot,
tap R2 twice, fire another shot, repeat.  This will make the battle go by
faster, especially if done with the Mosin Nagant.  Good luck!

Volgin will use electrical melee attacks.  His electrical punches can make
Snake puke from having thousands of volts course through him.

Be sure to eat food to replenish stamina if Snake vomits!

There is one devastating melee attack where Volgin will uppercut Snake into
the air and deliver an electrical stomp.  At the least, this will break a
bone.

Volgin has a long range attack, as well.  He will raise his arm to chamber
some bullets.  With his electricity, Volgin will shoot several bullets at
Snake.  To evade this attack, run in a wide, circular arc.

If Snake breaks a bone, go into the CURE menu and use a splint and a bandage.
For a gunshot wound, use styptic, disinfectant, bandage and the knife/fork
(in any order).

Volgin has another electrical attack, where he sends a large tracking bolt of
electricity in Snake's direction.  If Snake has a gun equipped, the
energy will be attracted to the metal in the gun, completing the circuit.
This will cause all of the rounds remaining in the clip to be fired and will
damage Snake.  When Volgin uses this attack, unequip the weapon.

The latter attack can be avoided in another way.  Remember what Raikov said
when interrogated?  No?  One of Volgin's weaknesses is a "bright colored
mushroom" -- the Russian Glow Cap.  Hopefully, you have some from behind the
Tikhogornyj waterfall.  It doesn't matter if they're rotten.

At the beginning of the fight, throw a Russian Glow Cap like a grenade to the
northeast corner.  Whenever Volgin uses this electrical attack, the bolt of
electricity will go into the ration of mushrooms!  This will leave Volgin's
back side wide open to tranqing head shots (with the Mosin Nagant) or a CQC
slam.

A good idea would be to fake out Volgin by equipping the MK22.  Then unequip
it as Volgin initiates the tracking bolt attack.  Evade the electricity, and
get to his side or behind him.  CQC slam or tranq him.

If you have a caged tree frog, equip it as a weapon and throw it on the
ground.  Volgin will freak out and zap it with electricity.

KUWABARA!  KUWABARA!  Take advantage of the situation and tranq him from
behind (with the Mosin Nagant) or CQC him.

There is a short refractory period after each of Volgin's attacks, so, make
use of the CQC slams.

Be sure to take advantage of Ocelot's distractions.  From time to time,
after Ocelot cheers on Snake, Volgin will look up at the catwalk and question
Ocelot's allegiance.  Tranq or CQC Volgin when he's distracted!

Also, if Volgin is standing underneath the catwalk, shoot a pipe with a
lethal weapon.  Volgin, with his electricity, will short out momentarily.

When Volgin is sapped of electricity, he will go to the circuit box to the
northwest and recharge his... batteries?  While he's doing this, he'll
expose his back to Snake.  Don't pass up this freebie!  Get in as many shots
(with the Mosin Nagant) as you can.

Use the Fake Death Pill ONCE.  Volgin will be fooled and turn away.  When
he's not facing Snake, use the Revival Pill and tranq him as many times as
you can or CQC slam him and roll.

When Volgin's life/stamina meter gets to half, a mini-cutscene will play.

Ocelot will be told to leave.  He does so after calling Volgin by his name
(which is disrespectful since Ocelot's not referring to him by his rank).

SPECIAL CUTSCENE:
When Ocelot is leaving, press R1 to see Ocelot do his hand gesture at Snake.




Recommended Face paint:  Mask
Recommended Camouflage:  Sneaking Suit

Switch the face paint to the Mask to get another freebie.  Volgin will
think that Snake is Ivan (Raikov).  Evade Volgin's embrace and cap him a
few times in the back of the head.

Afterwards, be sure to put some distance between Snake and Volgin as the
latter will punish Snake if he's up close for hurting his favorite Major.
(I recommend using this tactic in the second half of the fight since Ocelot
will no longer distract Volgin.  You could have used the Mask in the first
half, if you so desired).

Volgin will continue to use the same attacks from the first half.  The
tracking bolt of electricity will divide into three during this half.  If
you have another Russian Glow Cap, toss it into the arena.  Otherwise, be
sure to unequip any weapons when Volgin does this attack and head between
bolts.

Volgin has a couple new attacks for the second half of this fight.  He will
throw some bullets into the air, and using his electromagnetism, will cause
them to hover.  The bullets will create a sphere-like shape around Volgin's
upper body.  Then, Volgin will discharge his energy, causing the bullets to
fly.  The way to dodge this new attack is to run behind him.  Or, you can run
diagonal up to him and lay prone (and crawl toward Volgin).

The other new attack is sending a long bolt of electricity along the ground.
It surges from the north to south and will sweep from east to west.  Roll
over the bolt at the correct time.

Continue to shoot Volgin from behind and use CQC until Volgin runs out of
stamina.  He will flop onto all fours and will yield the <COLD WAR CAMO>.

This awesome (and very polychromatic) camo will prevent enemy soldiers from
firing in Snake's direction as long as Snake is facing them.

Be sure to pick the Cold War camo up quickly, because the cutscenes will play
in a couple moments after Volgin is defeated.

Watch the cutscenes.

Watch the cutscene.

From now on, you'll be responsible for Eva's health/stamina as well as
Snake's.  Should she die, it's mission failed.

Eva will drive her favorite motorcycle, while Snake hangs out in (and hangs
onto) the sidecar.  While in the sidecar, Snake's weapons will have infinite
ammo!  (Is Eva wearing a brown wig or something? >_>)

Equip the MK22, stun grenades and RPG-7.  Take the suppressor off the MK22.
If you didn't pick up the RPG-7 in the mountainside, don't worry!  The
sidecar has one.

The Shagohod, if fired upon, will sustain very minimal damage.  It's a much
better idea to focus on the enemy guards, as they are a bigger threat.  Just
trust Eva, and her driving.  o_O;

This chase is like a long interactive cutscene.  Eva will drive all over
Groznyj Grad.  She will start in Groznyj Grad Northeast.  Then she'll zip
through Groznyj Grad Southeast into Groznyj Grad Southwest.  Finally, she'll
go into Groznyj Grad Northwest.

There will be numerous GRU soldiers firing upon Eva and Snake.  Time to
make use of the Cold War camo.  As long as Snake is looking in their
direction, the enemies won't shoot!  Take advantage of this situation and
tranq/knock them out.  Regardless of where you shoot them, one shot will
make them fall asleep (or die).

Eva will make her way from the area near the food storehouse in Groznyj Grad
Northeast to the area in front of the Weapons Lab:   East Wing's entrance.
There will be three guards on the west side of the large metal boxes.
Another guard will be on the watch tower.

As Eva approaches the area with the metal boxes, toss a stun grenade in that
direction and look down.  Or, tranq all three.  Don't worry about the watch
tower guard; as long as Snake looks in that direction, he won't fire.

After the Shagohod turns the corner, Eva will take some evasive maneuvers.
She'll zip through Groznyj Grad Southeast.  Wave to the torture room building
as it passes.

Snake and Eva will go into Groznyj Grad Southwest, where a pair of GRU
soldiers will pop out from behind the storage units.  Toss a stun grenade
between the two.

Next, Eva will head west toward the hangars.  A trio of enemies will emerge
from the southwestern hangar.  Toss another flash bang among them.

Two GRU soldiers will try to flank Eva and Snake.  They'll appear from
between the middle and northern hangar.  Use another couple stun grenades.

Eva will next drive north into Groznyj Grad Northwest.  She'll stop by the
northwestern tank.  To the north, there are two GRU soldiers under the
Weapons Lab West Corridor.  Three more can be found in the corridor.  Tranq
them all.  It's easiest to use a stun grenade on the quartet, then the MK22
on the trio in the corridor.

(For aesthetics, when Eva says "Behind you!" change into your favorite camo
and face paint.  Just be sure to change the camo back in the next area.)

The Shagohod will emerge from the east.  Watch in awe as the tanks get
pushed together in an effort to crush Eva and Snake.

Eva will then drive to the north.

Watch the cutscenes as Volgin rampages through his fortress and shows no
consideration for his comrades.

The Shagohod will pursue Eva and Snake into

Since the map is not accessible during this part, and the rail bridge where
Eva put the C3 is to the north, I'm going to designate the initial forward
direction as north.

There will be numerous GRU soldiers firing upon Eva and Snake.  Time to
make use of the Cold War camo.  As long as Snake is looking in their
direction, the enemies won't shoot!  Take advantage of this situation and
tranq/knock them out.  Regardless of where you shoot them, one shot will
make them fall asleep (or die).

After Snake and Eva enter the area and go down a small decline, they will be
greeted by a trio of GRU soldiers.  Throw a stun grenade among them.

Eva will drive to the east, then around a corner to the north, and an enemy
will appear behind a barricade, next to a tent.  Tranq him or toss a stun
grenade.

This area has six buildings.  Eva will
drive around four of them for quite a           [NW]       [NE]
bit.  I will concentrate on these four.
At the moment, you'll see the two I'll          [SW]       [SE]
ignore, and two which enemies appear
from behind.  The latter two will be           [Ignored] [Ignored]  ^
referred to as the southwestern and                                 |
southeastern buildings.                          ---------------->  |

After turning the corner to the west,
passing a forklift, four enemies will
run between the two southern buildings.  Throw another stun grenade when
you see the forklift.

Eva will turn around (to the east) and two more enemies will appear around
the corner of the southwestern building.  Tranq them or use a stun grenade.

After driving a bit to the east, she'll turn around and pause near the
forklift.  A GRU soldier with a RPG will appear on the southwestern building.
Tranq him, or toss a flash bang up to his position.

Eva will go back to the west and go north around the southwestern building.

Three soldiers will try to flank Eva and Snake.  One will appear from between
the northern buildings.  Another will appear to the east of the northeastern
building, while the last will appear between the southern buildings.  Take
care of them.

As Eva comes upon another forklift, she'll turn left (north).  Two more
enemies will show up from behind another barricaded tent to the northeast.
Knock them out.

She will then turn around and go back between the two southern buildings and
do a loop clockwise around the southwestern building.

Another RPG-toting GRU soldier will appear, this time on the northeastern
building.  Tranq or flash bang him.

Three more soldiers will appear to the east, by the forklift.  Dispatch them.
Eva will turn around to the west, do a U-turn, and head back east.

With the way clear, Eva will go north past the barricaded tent.

On the second level of a multi-leveled staircase to the northeast, is another
RPG-wielding GRU soldier.  Tranq him.

To the west, by a ladder, is another enemy to be tranqed.

Eva will continue to the west.  One guard will appear from under a tent.
Tranq him.

On the second level of another multi-leveled staircase to the northwest, is
another RPG-toting GRU soldier.  Look in his direction, or tranq him.

Finally, Eva will drive north to

There are several waves of eight enemies pursuing Snake and Eva.  There are
four enemies driving motorcycles, each with a gun man in a sidecar.

The Shagohod will not be a factor in this part... for now.  It's way too
far behind.

Keep looking to the rear, toward the enemies.  It's possible to just keep an
eye on these guys and not fire a single shot.

But, that wouldn't be fun, now would it?

Tranq the drivers of the motorcycles.  They will crash, but the kills won't
be counted in the final statistics.

The location of the MK22 shots fired will matter.  There will be a delay for
the enemy to fall asleep if it's not a head shot.

If you want, you can look at the ground (i.e., at the spare wheel) and keep
tossing stun grenades.

Or, if you feel like it, use the RPG on these suckers.  KABOOOM!  They won't
appear on another Sorrow's River, but they will count in the final stats.

Watch the cutscene.  Finally, Volgin makes use of the Shagohod's boosters.

Initially, there will be four enemies driving motorcycles, each with a gunner
in a sidecar.

However, Volgin, in his haste, will run over the motorcycles if you didn't
take care of them.  Talk about friendly fire.

After the motorcycles are gone, switch to your favorite face paint and camo.
Just don't wear the Spider camo.

Try to make use of the tactical reload technique with the RPG:  While in FPV,
fire a shot, tap R2 twice, fire another shot, repeat.  This will make this
area go by faster and will make the next area much easier.  Good luck!

Also, if this is done throughout this part, Volgin won't have enough time to
use any of his attacks!

And, don't worry, you're not wasting any ammo!

Otherwise...

As a precautionary measure, equip chaff grenades.

Sometimes, Volgin will decide to use homing missiles.  Eva will warn you when
this happens, but, to be pro-active, throw chaff grenades between rockets.
The chaff will mess with the missiles' targeting.

Or, if you feel like it, you can blow the missiles out of the sky.  Use the
RPG to do so.

Keep the Shagohod at bay by firing rockets at the spinning treads.  This will
slow him down a bit.

If the Shagohod gets close, Volgin will use the machine guns ("Fire!").  Be
sure to fire a rocket at the treads if this happens.

If the Shagohod gets extremely close, Volgin will try to "grind you into
dust!"  Definitely fire a rocket at the treads when the Shagohod gets too
close for comfort.

This will immobilize the Shagohod momentarily.  Eva will drive around so
Snake can shoot the Shagohod's rear panel.

If the Shagohod starts to move, shoot the same tread again or the other one.
Keep the Shagohod immobilized.  Once you get a clear angle of the rear panel,
take the shot.

When there are blue streaks of electricity, that specific part of the
Shagohod won't take any more damage.  For example:  When the rear panel has
blue streaks across it, additional rockets to the panel will not do any
damage.

Try to make use of the tactical reload technique with the RPG:  While in FPV,
fire a shot, tap R2 twice, fire another shot, repeat.  This will make this
battle go by faster.  Good luck!

Basically, all you have to do is shoot the tread, do a tactical reload, shoot
the rear panel when the opportunity presents itself, do a tactical reload,
shoot the tread again, and repeat.  Stay on the offensive, so Volgin won't
have a chance to attack.


Otherwise...

As a precautionary measure, equip chaff grenades.

Sometimes, Volgin will decide to use homing missiles.  Eva will warn you when
this happens, but, to be pro-active, throw chaff grenades between rockets.
The chaff will mess with the missiles' targeting.

Or, if you feel like it, you can blow the missiles out of the sky.  Use the
RPG to do so.

If the Shagohod gets close, Volgin will use the machine guns ("Fire!").  Be
sure to fire a rocket at the treads if this happens.

Volgin will also fire a wide, red beam of machine gun fire from the center of
the Shagohod's "face."

If the Shagohod gets extremely close, Volgin will try to "grind you into
dust!"  Definitely fire a rocket at the treads when the Shagohod gets too
close for comfort.

Watch the cutscenes.

Ruh-oh.

Volgin will maneuver the Shagohod while standing atop it.

Eva will drive around the arena, trying to distract Volgin.  Volgin will give
chase her until Snake attacks him.

If Snake doesn't attack and distract Volgin, Eva can die.  She can also die
from friendly fire, so be careful.

The second part of this boss battle is pretty straightforward.  With the
RPG-7, shoot one of the treads.  This will immobilize the Shagohod
momentarily.  Don't shoot Volgin from the front; remember he generates a
shield!  Run a little at a diagonal (i.e., northeast), then tranq Volgin from
an angle.  Use the MK22 or Mosin Nagant.

If the Shagohod starts to move, shoot the same tread again or the other one.
Once it stalls, run at a diagonal again, and tranq Volgin.

When there are blue streaks of electricity on the treads, it won't take any
more damage from additional rockets.

Stay on the offensive, so Volgin won't have a chance to attack.

Remember, there are four machine gun turrets in the area.  You can use these
if you don't care about getting no kills.

These will definitely get the attention of Volgin.  After he turns toward
Snake, make sure to hop out of the turret, or Volgin will ground Snake into
dust!

Otherwise...

As a precautionary measure, equip chaff grenades.

Sometimes, Volgin will decide to use homing missiles.  Eva will warn you when
this happens, but, to be pro-active, throw chaff grenades between rockets.
The chaff will mess with the missiles' targeting.

Or, if you feel like it, you can blow the missiles out of the sky.  Use the
RPG to do so.

If the Shagohod gets close, Volgin will use the machine guns ("Fire!").  Run
in a wide arc around the Shagohod.

Volgin will also fire a wide, red beam of machine gun fire from the center of
the Shagohod's "face."  Run laterally when Volgin uses this attack.

If the Shagohod gets extremely close, Volgin will try to "grind you into
dust!"  Don't panic, and equip the box.  Run laterally, or be bold and run
under the middle of the Shagohod!

Eventually, Eva will try to get Volgin's attention.

Repeat the above until Volgin has expired.

Watch the cutscenes.  I love the expression on Snake's face.  ;O

Kuwabara Kuwabara.  Tsk tsk.  Irony.

When Eva approaches Snake to hug him, press R1 to see from Snake's point of
view.

SPECIAL CUTSCENE:
After the fireworks, when Eva hugs Snake, press R1 to see over her shoulder.

Now's not the time to celebrate.  Enemies will resume their pursuit, so

Since the map is not accessible during this part, I'm going to designate the
initial forward direction as north.

There are three enemies driving motorcycles, each with a gun man in a
sidecar.  Initially, these motorcycle enemies will be accompanied by three
hoverguards.

Keep looking to the rear, toward the enemies.  It's possible to just keep an
eye on these guys and not fire a single shot.

But, that wouldn't be fun, now would it?

Tranq the drivers of the motorcycles.  They will crash, but the kills won't
be counted in the final statistics.

The location of the MK22 shots fired will matter.  There will be a delay for
the enemy to fall asleep if it's not a head shot.

Eva will drive along a lengthy sinuous mountain road.  As Eva and Snake make
their way north, they'll pass two buildings built into the mountain and two
outposts.

Throw stun grenades while looking down at the spare wheel.  These will knock
out the motorcycle drivers.  Or, you can tranq them, if you want.  Don't mind
the hoverguards; since you're looking in their direction, they won't fire at
you.  Besides, when the path goes into the mountain, the hoverguards will
disengage and fly elsewhere.

After the hoverguards stop pursuing Eva and Snake, they will reach a
building against the western wall.  If the initial three motorcycle enemies
were eliminated, three more motorcycle enemies will lie in wait near the
building.   Turn to the west (Eva's left), and throw a stun grenade
between/in front of the three motorcycles.

If they join the pursuit, throw stun grenades while looking at the spare
wheel or tranq them.

Eva will race through a few curves in the road and pass another building with
three motorcycle enemies waiting to ambush Snake and Eva (if the previous
wave of three motorcycles were eliminated).  Turn to the west and throw a
stun grenade between/in front of them.  If they join the pursuit, throw stun
grenades while looking at the spare wheel or tranq them.

Eventually, Snake and Eva will ride through a tunnel.  Happily, the
motorcycle enemies will disengage their pursuit.  Not so happily, there
will be ambushes by GRU soldiers on foot.

The GRU soldiers not in vehicles will fall asleep/die after one shot,
regardless of where they are shot.

After emerging from the tunnel, Snake and Eva will follow a winding route to
an outpost with a guard tower, where five GRU soldiers are waiting.  All five
are amidst the armored cars.  Throw a stun grenade between them or tranq
the enemies as fast as you can.  Eva will take evasive maneuvers, so the
former method will be easier.

Eva will do circles a couple times before continuing to the north.  After
another winding path, Eva and Snake will be ambushed at another outpost,
where another five GRU soldiers are waiting.  Four are on the ground by
armored cars, while the fifth is in the guard tower.  Throw a stun grenade
between the soldiers on the ground and tranq the man in the tower, or just
give them the look.  #_o

This second outpost has barricades in the way, so Eva will drive in an
arc to get around the obstacle.

Three hoverguards will appear as Eva and Snake make their way into

There are several waves of three hoverguards pursuing Snake and Eva through
the forest.

Whenever I get to this area, I look for Ewoks to come to the rescue.  >_>

This area is pretty straightforward.  Face the south and use the MK22 on the
hoverguards.

Keep looking to the rear for the majority of the area, toward the enemies.
It's possible to just keep an eye on these guys and not fire a single shot.

But, that wouldn't be fun, now would it?

The location of the MK22 shots fired will matter.  There will be a delay for
the enemy to fall asleep if it's not a head shot.

Equip the M63.  About three-quarters of the way along the path, there will be
a log blocking the way.  Eva will warn you, so turn to the north and shoot
it with the M63.  If you can't see it, shoot a little in front of Eva's
motorcycle.

Try your best to shoot it!  Otherwise, Snake will sustain damage.

After the hoverguards crash into the rock walls, Eva and Snake will continue
north into

There are several waves of six enemies pursuing Snake and Eva.  There are
three enemies driving motorcycles, each with a gun man in a sidecar.  They
will emerge from the river (to the right) and from behind you.

Keep looking to the rear for the majority of the area, toward the enemies.
It's possible to just keep an eye on these guys and not fire a single shot.

Throw stun grenades while looking at the spare wheel or tranq them.

If you want, you can use the RPG on these guys.

Eva and Snake will drive north along a river.

Initially, the three motorcycles will pursue directly from the south.

Once Snake and Eva get to shallow areas of the river, the trio will split,
trying to flank Snake and Eva.  Two motorcycles will go on the eastern bank
(on Eva's right), while the other will stay behind Snake and Eva.  Or, all
three will go onto the eastern bank.

Use thermal goggles if they're hard to spot.

Get ready for a jump!

Ouch.

Listen to the radio conversation.  Afterwards, the CURE menu will be
automatically accessed for you.

Eva has two cuts while Snake has a cut and a broken bone.

Heal Snake first.

For the broken bone, use a splint and a bandage.  For the cuts, use styptic,
disinfectant, the suture kit, and a bandage, in any order.

You must be within a few feet of Eva to cure and feed her.

All of the options and functions for the CURE menu will be applicable to Eva.
Look at her food history.  <_<  Look at her medical history.

Eva can be made to vomit by spinning her around in the CURE menu.

You will be responsible for feeding Eva, to keep up her stamina.

Eva's appetite is ENORMOUS.  I've heard of women with fast metabolisms, but,
damn!

When her stamina is less than a quarter of a bar, she'll start complaining,
"I'm hungry."  This will alert enemies to her presence, in the next section
and next area.  Eventually, she'll ask for Instant Noodles; remember all
those Instant Noodle wrappers behind the waterfall?

You may think it's a good idea to tranq her.

Not so much.  She will start dreaming, and will mention Snake, the Boss (!!!)
and.... a dog?!  I'm guessing Kojima is poking fun at the GTA3 protagonist.

The solution?  CQC slam Eva from the front.  Yes, it is very mean.  But, this
will prevent Eva from making noise, and it won't drain her stamina.

Eva will follow Snake if he summons her.  Do so by pressing (T).  Snake MUST
be in her line of sight but doesn't have to face Eva when he does this.

If Snake is facing her, he'll extend his left arm, and wave his hand toward
his chest.

If Snake isn't facing her, he'll raise his left arm and wave his hand over
his shoulder.

The more stamina she has, the faster she'll walk.

If she's crouching, she'll be hard to CQC slam.  So, walk a couple steps away
and wave to her.  CQC slam her after she gets to her feet.

She will do as Snake does.  If he crawls, she'll stay crouched.

Eva will fall for the Fake Death Pill trick.  She'll be surprised after you
take the Revival pill.

If you PPK Eva while she's still conscious, she'll kick Snake.


After healing Snake and Eva, head to the north of the starting position. To
the northwest, you'll find {AK-47 AMMO}, {MOSIN NAGANT AMMO}, and {SVD AMMO}.

Directly to the north, you'll find two RUSSIAN RATIONs.

To the northeast, you'll find {MK22 AMMO}, {XM16 AMMO}, [CLAYMORES],
[GRENADES], [SMOKE G], and [STUN G].

After getting the ammo and rations, leave her alone.

She'll panic if she's alone too long.  Don't worry about it in this
section.  Just don't head to the exit in the southeast, yet.

Equip the thermal goggles, and collect all the Siberian Ink Caps.

Go back to Eva, and go into the FOOD menu.  Highlight the Siberian Ink Cap,
press (O), then down to select EVA, then (O) again.  She won't like it.  But
keep feeding her until her stamina is completely filled.  (C'mon!  She had
all those gourmet meals!!!)  Exit the FOOD menu.

CQC slam her now.  Her stamina will stay at 100%, which will increase her
rate of healing.

Go collect the Reticulated Pythons.  Refill Snake's stamina if you want,
then head to the southeast.

Don't worry if Eva is still knocked out, the cutscene will still play and
Eva will join Snake in the next section.

Good morning, Eva!  Did you have a nice nap?  <_<

After Eva and Snake get a short head start, there will be several waves of

four enemies catching up to them, from the north.

Just head south.  Dawdling will increase the chances of getting an ALERT.

If the GRU catch up to Snake and Eva, Eva will use her Mauser to mow down
enemies.  Watch out, though, because the enemies will try to flank Snake and
Eva.

Using claymore mines will slow down the enemies, but it also hinders Snake's
and Eva's progress through the area.  Walk a few steps, let Eva catch up,
plant a mine behind her, and repeat.

After entering the area, give Eva another Siberian Ink Cap, then take the
left (east) fork.  This fork is very easy to navigate.  While Snake is
waiting for Eva to catch up, shoot down a few Russian False Mangoes.

The right (west) fork has a chasm with a narrow bridge.

Recall, Eva will follow Snake if he summons her.  Do so by pressing (T).  
Snake MUST be in her line of sight, but he doesn't have to face Eva when he
does this.

If Snake is facing her, he'll extend his left arm, and wave his hand toward
his chest.

If Snake isn't facing her, he'll raise his left arm and wave his hand over
his shoulder.

Refer to the MAP to keep yourself oriented.

Head southeast a few steps, then summon Eva.  Constantly repeat the process
until you get to the exit.

Keep in mind the more stamina Eva has, the faster she'll walk.

Both Snake and Eva have to be awake at the exit to go into the next area.

This area is roughly shaped like three          (              )
pearls on a string.  The middle pearl           (  8           )

Guard '9' crouches and faces to the east.


If you go into the CURE menu in this area, you'll notice that Eva has lost
her clothes!  :o  She's still wearing her bikini, though.


Immediately after entering the area, feed Eva to refill her stamina.

If you haven't already, be sure to re-attach the suppressor to the MK22.

Un-suppressed weapon fire will draw the attention of the patrolling guards to
Snake's position.

Do NOT miss when you shoot at the enemies.

You don't have to go for head shots with the tranq.  Let the drug take
effect.

These guards are so intent with their search, they won't wake up sleeping
comrades.

In fact, the sleeping guards will not wake up, as long as there's a CAUTION
and Snake remains in that specific part (i.e., southern pearl, etc).

The instant there is an ALERT, however, they will spring awake and rush to
Snake's position to fight.

Equip the thermal goggles to see the enemies better.  Crawl to the north
through the ferns.  Tranq Guard '1.'

Stand up and go to Eva.  CQC slam her.

Walk up to the horizontal log to the north.  Lay prone to the east side of
the log and tranq Guard '2.'  Or, you can go down the eastern path, and CQC
slam him.

Stand up and go (south then) along the western path.  From a distance, tranq
Guard '3,' or CQC slam him.

While you're waiting for Guards '4' and '5' to reappear from the north, do
some hunting if you're running low on food or cure items.  But be sure to
keep an eye to the north.

Drag Eva along the western path into the ferns while keeping an eye to the
north.

When they appear, tranq Guards '4' and '5.'  Use body shots if you want.

PPK Eva awake.  Take the western path of the hollowed pearl part.

Before you get to the second patch of ferns near the ledge, by the Siberian
Ink Cap, CQC slam Eva again.

Near the edge, crouch, and using the thermal goggles, tranq the rest of the
enemies.  You can use the Mosin Nagant, if you want.

I would recommend going to the right side of the ledge to tranq Guard '7.'
Then tranq Guard '9' to the left.  Guard '8' is hidden well, but when '9'
gets hit with a Mosin Nagant dart, '8' will stand up and turn around.
Tranq '8.'  Look to the right and tranq Guard '6.'

PPK Eva awake, drop down from the ledge and make your way to the northeast.
Don't worry about Eva's stamina as you're about to exit.

Prior to going to the exit, change to your favorite camo and face paint (or
the Sneaking Suit and Snow face paint in preparation for the boss battle).

Watch the cutscenes as Eva goes to get the WIG ready, and Snake feels the
Boss's presence in

There is a time limit to this fight:  Ten (10) minutes.

This is a pretty difficult battle.  For one thing, there's the time limit.
For another, the 3D Subsistence camera is disabled!  You'll have to fight the
Boss using the Snake Eater camera.

Near the end of the fight, the Boss will count down the remaining minutes.

When time expires, there will be a cutscene of MiGs blowing up the place,
just as the Boss promised.  This will be a game over.  So, if you don't want
any Continues, and the Boss has the majority of her stamina/health left,
reload the file and try again.

The Boss will use her Patriot as a long range weapon.  And, she will mix it
up with Snake by using CQC.  She'll run at him after warning him, with such
phrases as "Here I come!" or "Get ready!"

The Patriot will also be used to ward off incoming weapon fire, as long as
she sees Snake firing at her.  If you manage to flank her, you can get in one
quick shot.

After the first shot, you'll give away your position, and the Boss will
retaliate.

The Boss will not fall for the Fake Death Pill trick.  She'll shoot, slash
Snake with a knife, and finally jump into the air, breaking a bone in order
to revive Snake.

If Snake gets a cut, use a bandage, disinfectant, styptic and a suture kit.
For a broken bone, use a bandage and a splint.  For a gunshot wound, use
the bandage, disinfectant, knife, and styptic.

Rokovoj Bereg is filled with white flowers.  This provides good camouflage
for the Boss (who is wearing white), and excellent camouflage for Snake (if
he wears the Snow camo and face paint).  The Sneaking Suit gets moderate
camouflage, and will come in handy to reduce damage when the Boss uses CQC
on Snake.

When the Boss runs, she'll stir up flower petals in her wake.  This is a good
way to keep track of her.

Use the thermal goggles to keep a fix on her position.

She will run among the numerous trees in the area.  She will lean against a
tree, sidle against it and peek out to look for Snake.  If she finds Snake,
she'll shoot him with the Patriot.  If not, she'll run to another tree and
repeat the process.

Also strewn about the area are some horizontal logs.  They are located in the
north, south, and east.  These can provide cover for Snake, if you choose to
fight the battle with a sniper rifle.  They also have some white snakes that
provide full stamina (see below).

Be sure to unequip your weapon when the Boss charges at Snake.  If you don't
manage to ward off her CQC, she will do a field strip:  The Boss will
separate the gun from the ammo.  This results in four weapon/ammunition tins
which she flings away in disgust.  One tin is the weapon itself; the three
other tins are the ammo.  If you have grenades equipped, she'll divide them
into four.



At the very beginning of the fight, the Boss will charge at Snake.  When the
Boss grunts, she will be initiating her CQC attack.  If you manage to press
and hold (O) at the correct time, Snake will ward off her CQC.  Mashing (O)
-- i.e., tapping (O) repeatedly -- can work as well.

One way to ward off her CQC is to do a quick U-turn.  Run away from her
a couple steps, go in a half-circle to face her, then press (O) as she
reaches Snake.

There are a few animations for Snake countering the Boss's CQC.  They seem
to be random.

After warding off her CQC attack, tranq her with the MK22 in the head.  Then,
do a CQC slam from the front.  Or just PPK her.  When she's on the ground,
get in two more shots with the MK22 or use the roll attack.

Take cover behind a tree!  Or perhaps next to a log...

If you're good at warding off her CQC attack, try to flank her by going
from tree to tree, taking cover along the way.  Allow her to run up to Snake
and counter the CQC.  Tranq her once, CQC slam or PPK her, then get in
another couple shots.  Take cover again, and repeat.

If you're not comfortable with CQC, snipe her with the Mosin Nagant.  Take
cover by a log and follow her progress with the thermal goggles.  You can
lay prone and get an elevated view by pressing the FPV button (L1 for the
Mosin Nagant), R1 and R2 and L2.  When she peeks out from behind a tree,
Boom!  Get in a head shot!

An alternative would be to take cover from tree to tree and use flash bangs.
Once you know where she is, lean out from the tree and toss a stun grenade
in her direction.  Refrain from looking in that direction or equip the
cardboard box.  While she is dazed, tranq her once, CQC slam her, tranq her
twice, and take cover.

Near the end of the fight, you can hear the Snake Eater theme.  At first,
it is real faint.  But, as time gets closer to expiring, the music will
crescendo, and the Boss will count down the remaining minutes.

Repeat the previously outlined steps until the Boss has no more stamina.



After depleting the Boss's stamina, she will yield the <SNAKE CAMO>.

This camo will provide a good Camo Index (at least 60%) when lying prone.

Be sure to pick the Snake camo up quickly, because the cutscene will play
in a minute or so after the Boss is defeated.

Watch the un-skippable cutscene.

"Jack... you're a wonderful man.  Kill me.  Kill me now.  Do it."

If you don't press a face button to fire the shot, the game will wait a
minute or so before Snake pulls the trigger.

More (skippable) cinematics follow.

SPECIAL CUTSCENE:
While the red petals float to the sky and the horse tilts its head upwards,
press R1 to see the Joy reunited with the Sorrow, like Obi-Wan and Anakin in
"Revenge of the Jedi."

One last duel, eh Ocelot?

Choose the revolver on your (Snake's) right to get the Single Action Army
revolver for subsequent play throughs.  If you choose the one on the left,
Ocelot takes it back and won't give Snake a revolver.

Press (S) as quickly as you can.  Watch the cutscenes.  See you next trip,
have a nice fall!

Save after the radio conversation, if you want.

SPECIAL CUTSCENE:
When Snake... ermm, Big Boss, gets his new code name while in front of the
President, press R1 and look at the window over the President's right
shoulder to see Ocelot do his hand gesture one last time.  Do this when 
the
President says that Big Boss is "a true patriot."

SPECIAL CUTSCENE:
When Big Boss is at the graveyard and salutes at the tombstone, press R1 to
see from his point of view; his eyes well up when he salutes.



Congratulations on beating the game!

Don't forget to SAVE after the credits roll!

Upon completing the game you should acquire the following items for
subsequent play throughs:

-- EZ Gun : Weapon                          <= SPECIAL ITEM
-- Infinite Ammo Face Paint (IFP)           <= SPECIAL ITEM
-- Stealth Camouflage : Equipment           <= SPECIAL ITEM
-- Single Action Army revolver : Weapon
-- Digital Camera : Equipment
-- Patriot : Weapon
-- Tuxedo Camo
-- All of the face paints you have collected
-- All the camouflages you have collected
     -- Exceptions:  Scientist, Officer, Maintenance

To make use of these items, save the gave after the credits roll.  Then, load
that save file.  Choose whichever option, then play the game.  Get the
Backpack, and voila!

Weapons do not carry over.

If you didn't get the EZ Gun, it's because you missed at least one food item.

If you didn't get the IFP, it's because you didn't keep a Tsuchinoko caged
throughout the game while Snake had his gear.

If you didn't get the Stealth Camouflage, it's because you got at least one
ALERT or didn't shoot all the Kerotans.


If you didn't get the Single Action Army revolver, it's because you chose the
wrong one on the WIG.

If you didn't get the Digital Camera, it's because you didn't pick it up in
Groznyj Grad.

Please put "Metal Gear Solid 3" in the subject title, so it won't be deleted.

Please don't send emails about the number of enemies in the Groznyj Grad
motorcycle chase.  Although I appreciate the input, I'm sure I'll get
conflicting numbers.  Thanks.

Also, do not send emails with viruses or attachments.
