    Version 0.35 - January 13, 2002
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Sorry for the long procrastination.  I was doing lots of stuff over Christmas
    break, so that explains for a lot of things.
    
      - Checked the FAQ for some grammatical and spelling errors
      - Updated the Contact Information section
    
    Yeah, not much done, I know, but as I said, Christmas break, ya?  Well, anyway,
    hopefully I can get more work done on this thing now.  Next update expect dog
    tags section to be updated, since I have nearly gotten all of them.  Also I
    might have missed some grammatical and spelling errors.  Hey, I'm not perfect.
    ^_^
    
    If you have sent me an email, and haven't gotten a response, it is either
    because the answer to the question was in the FAQ or because I was on break and
    didn't really have time to answer it.  I might eventually respond, once I mess
    around with all my new Christmas gifts.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Version 0.3 - November 25, 2001
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Another small update.
    
       - Added some stuff to the Tactics section
       - Added some stuff to the Fun Quirks & Secrets section
       - Added some stuff to Contact Information
       - Re-formated some minor things
    
    The next version, you can SERIOUSLY expect the dog tag section to be updated
    (yeah I know, I'm lazy), and maybe some of the script. 
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Version 0.25 - November 24, 2001
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Not quite version 0.3, but a rather big update nonetheless.
    
       - Added the "Scripting" section, including the the script from MGS2 as well
         as the articles under the "Previous Story" section under "Special" on the
         main menu
       - Got a tad bit done on the actual script of MGS2, and finished the New York
         Mirror article
       - Added some stuff to the Fun Quirks & Secrets section
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Version 0.2 - November 24, 2001
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Second version of the FAQ.  Not very much of a large update, but it can help
    you a little.  The next update will probably be a very large one, probably
    having the dog tag section complete or near complete.
    
       - Added a tip on the Vamp boss fight (in the Filtration Chamber)
       - Added more to the Equipment section
       - Added some stuff to the Fun Quirks & Secrets section
       - Added the FAQ Information (right above this version update)
    
    Also big thanks to all of the contributors, thanks for all of the emails, they
    have helped this FAQ out a lot.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    Version 0.1 - November 18, 2001
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    First version of the FAQ.  Not that much done, I know, but now all of my free
    time goes to this, so it should get completed pretty quickly.
    
       - Game Introduction/Basics completed (but will be updated)
       - Walkthrough completed (but will be updated)
       - Equipment almost completed
       - Secrets section started
    
    In the distant future, you *might* expect some of the following things: boss
    strategies (in-depth), script, and maybe some suprises... :)
    
    Next update, expect equipment to be complete, Plant Chapter walkthrough to be
    complete/almost complete, more additions to Game Introduction/Basics section,
    a start on the Secrets section, and more in-depth information on the Tanker
    Chapter walkthrough.

    3.       Introduction
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    ...and welcome to my Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty FAQ/Walkthrough.
    Eventually, I'll try to get this sucker packed with in-depth information for
    every aspect of this game, but considering that could take a while, I got as
    much done as I could this version (which is not THAT much, quite frankly). But
    don't worry, soon the scroll bar will begin to get smaller, and smaller, and
    smaller, until it's extremely hard to click.  Yeah.
    
    Anyway, enough ranting. MGS2 has been a highly anticipated game, and after the 
    long, long ass wait, it has finally arrived.  The real question: is it worth 
    buying?  By all means, yes.  It surpasses its predeccessor, Metal Gear Solid, 
    in every which way.  So, I highly suggest that you go buy this game, right 
    now.  Anyhoo, the reason I decided to make this FAQ is because the game just 
    kicks so much bootay, and I felt I should write up this thing and help with 
    world with MGS2.
    
    Note, however, that this FAQ is still under some intense construction.  So,
    remember to wear your hard hat (yeah... that was dumb, I know).  I guess you
    could call it a rough draft since pretty much all of this is subjected to be
    updated.  I'll try to get this thing done as soon as possible, and if I feel 
    like it... I might add a walkthrough or something.  Well, enjoy the FAQ.
    
    One final thing.  The walkthrough is _very_ vaugh.  Eventually, I plan to have
    locations for all of the items in the specific area, etc., however right now
    all it does is explain what to do next.  I'll be playing through the game
    countless times to get all of the item locations, etc., but until then you'll
    just have to wait.  ^_^
    
    And yes, I KNOW the ASCII art sucks... I'm working on it.  ^_^
    
    NOTE:  This FAQ WILL contain spoilers.  Not very major ones, since it doesn't
    have a walkthrough, but it does contain spoilers, nonetheless.  So if you don't
    want to be spoiled, I suggest you stop now.

    4.       Game Introduction/Basics
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    I'm guessing the name is pretty self-explanitory, right?  Yeah, well basically
    in this section you, how do I put this, "learn" about the game.  Yeah.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    4.1      Game Screen
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Ah, the game screen.  Since I can't exactly do an ASCII diagram on the whole 
    screen, I'll just explain what things are on the screen and what they do.
     
    /LIFE GAUGE/  The life gauge is probably the thing you will
    want to look at most when you are in the midst of an attck.  Whether you're 
    getting bombarded with a hail of bullets, getting the crap beat out of you with 
    fists, being blown to bits with grenades, or some other form of pain, you will 
    take damage, and your life gauge will slowly deplete.  Once there is none left,
    you will die.  O_o
    
    /BOSS LIFE GAUGE/  This only appears during boss battles, and will deplete as
    you deal damage to the boss.  Once there's none left, they will "die."
    
     
    /BOSS STUN GAUGE/  This appears right under the boss' life gauge.  When you hit
    a boss with a tranquilizer dart (M9, PSG1-T) or a stun grenade, this gauge will
    deplete.  Once there's none left, they will... go to sleep.
    
    /GRIP GAUGE/  This appears when you are hanging on a ledge.  It depletes the
    longer you hang on.  Once there's none left, you fall, and if you're extremely 
    high up and there's nothing below you, you'll fall to your very painful death 
    on impact.  If you push L2 or R2 to do pushups, your gauge will increase after 
    you do quite a few and you'll be able to hang on longer.
    
    /O2 GAUGE/  This appears when you are underwater.  It will deplete the longer
    you stay underwater.  Once there's none left, it will start using taking life
    off of your life gauge.  Once you come up to the surface your O2 gauge will
    fill up again.
    
    /PARTNER LIFE GAUGE/  This only appears when you have a partner with you.  It
    works the same as your life gauge, only this depletes when you partner takes
    damage.   Understand?
    
    /PARTNER O2 GAUGE/  This only appears when you have a partner with you.  It
    works the same as your O2 guage, only this depletes when you partner loses
    air.  Get it?  Got it?  Good.
    
    /ITEM INVENTORY/  This is where all of your items are kept.  Press L2 to bring
    up the list and then scroll through.  Tap L2 quickly to unequip the current
    item equipped, and tap it again to re-equip the item.
    
    /WEAPON INVENTORY/  This is where all of your weapons are kept.  Press R2 to
    bring up the list and then scroll though.  Tap R2 quickly to unequip the
    current item equipped, and tap it again to re-equip the item.
    
    /RADAR/  The radar is pretty easy to use.  You are the yellow dot, and enemies
    are the red dots.  The green cone represents your field of vision, and the blue
    cones represent the enemies field of vision.  Of course, you and alter these
    cones and the radar significantly...
    
       -NORMAL MODE-                          Everything is like I described above.
       -SUSPECION-                            Enemies field of vision is now a 
                                                 yellow cone.
       -CAUTION MODE/AFTER BEING DISCOVERED-  Enemies field of vision is now a red
                                                 cone.
    
    So basically, don't go inside the enemies "cone," and hence you won't get
    caught.
    
    /CODEC/  Your system for communication with other characters.  Press select to
    bring up the screen.  Bring down the memory by pressing down on the left analog
    stick, and tune by pressing left and right on the left analog stick.  Press the
    circle button to call someone with the selected frequency.  If you are being
    called, you will hear a ringing sound and a select button will appear on the
    screen.  Press select to bring up the Codec.

    4.3      Tactics
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    /STICK 'EM UP/  Is there a guard in your way that's starting to piss you off?
    You can always try to avoid them, or you could have some fun and come from
    behind and point your gun at their head.  While the enemy guard is going
    through their patrol route, hide behind a wall or something similar to that,
    and right when they walk by you, wait until they turn their back, then walk up
    to them and go in First Person View and point your gun at them.  Their hands
    should go flailing in the air.  Now, you can go ahead and shoot them now or
    you could get some goodies from them.  You want the goodies, eh?  Then slowly
    release the square button so the gun does not fire, and CAREFULLY walk around
    them to the front, and as fast as you can put the gun back on them so they
    don't recover from the stick up.  Then aim the gun at their head, or, for
    some other humor, at their groin, and they should get scared and either a)
    drop a dog tag if they haven't already or b) if they have already dropped a
    dog tag, they should drop some other item or c) drop nothing at all.  Sometimes
    you might get the guards that say something like "Are you going to shoot me?"
    For these guys, whip out your USP or SOCOM and blast them in the arm.  Now they
    should be scared enough and drop some stuff.  Once you're done with them, I
    also get out my M9 and put them to night-night.  :)
    
    /DECOY/  This one is always fun.  If you're in an area with two guards, knock
    one out with your M9.  Then drag him someplace that is noticeable.  Now go
    near a second guard, bang on the wall, and lure him over to the already knocked
    out guard.  You might want to hide behind something so he doesn't see you.
    Anyhoo, once he sees the knocked out guard, pop out and nail him in the head
    with whatever weapon you choose.  Quite fun, eh?
    
    /WAYS TO GET OUT OF ALERT-EVASION MODE/  So you got caught, eh?  Well there are
    many ways of going about hiding once you've been discovered.  The most famous,
    by far, is hiding under boxes.  However, make sure you hide under the correct
    box, or the guards might get suspicious.  Hiding under a food box where tons of
    electrical applicance boxes are might not be the smartest idea.  Another good
    hiding place is a locker, if there are any nearby.  And of course, there is
    always ducking in a corner and hiding under tables...
    
    /EASY ITEMS/  Need some ammo or rations?  You could try the "Stick 'em up"
    tactic, or you can go about an easier one.  Find a guard, kill him or knock him
    out, then drag is body around and he might drop some junk.  For best results,
    once you are done dragging the body around, hide them somewhere so they won't
    be noticed.  :)
    
    /SHOOT OUT THE RADIO/  A good way to avoid being in Alert Mode is to shoot out
    the guards radio so they can't call in reinforcements.  There are a couple of
    ways to do this.  One way is to knock him out with your M9 or punch him out.
    If he is on his front, you should see the radio on his back (the radio is on
    the back side).  Take out your M9, and then shoot it, and bingo.  Now when he
    wakes up, and if he sees you, he won't be able to call for backup.  The second
    way to do this is to shoot it while the guard is concious.  It is harder, but
    much funnier.
    
    /WAKE UP/  You know you can wake up guards if they are asleep without having to
    wait minutes?  There are a couple ways to do this.  The first is to repeatedly
    pick them up and drop them.  This can still take a while, but it does work.
    The faster way is to spray them with the Coolant.  This tactic works very well
    if you are trying to get a dog tag.

    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    /DIFFICULTIES/  When starting a new game, you have the option of choosing a

                    extremely high capacity for items and ammo.
       -EASY-       Few guards on duty, high gauges, high capacity for items and
                    ammo.
       -NORMAL-     Normal.  :)

                    ammo.
       -EXTREME-    Maximum amount of guards on duty, extremely low gauges,
                    extremely low capacity for items and ammo.

    Here it is folks.  As I said before, the only thing right now that it explains
    is what to do, without any item locations, etc., but soon, it shall be el
    ultimo.  Yep, yessiree Bob.
    
    This walkthrough is based on normal mode.  Eventually I might be man enough to
    write an extreme walkthrough, but not now.  I'll stick with normal.  Also, at
    this time, I'll try to keep the spoilers at a minimum, however eventually I'll
    probably add a section devoted to the story.

    5.1      Tanker Chapter
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Enjoy the opening cinema once you start the game.  Pretty neat, eh?  Jumping
    off of the George Washington Bridge and all... pretty damn cool if you ask me.
    
    Anyway, once you land on the tanker, you will start a Codec conversation with
    Otacon, the computer genius and pee-in-pants guy from the original Metal Gear
    Solid.  He'll explain what your mission objectives are, how to move around,
    your inventory, etc.  Your main objective is to infiltrate the tanker and take
    pictures of the new Metal Gear, Metal Gear RAY.
    
    AFT DECK
    
    After the whole attack scene, you'll gain control of Snake. What you want to do 
    now is enter into the crews decks. From where you start, there are three 
    guards: one on the starboard side patrolling around the stairs to the level 
    above, one on the port side patrolling around the stairs to the level above, 
    and one directly in front of you patrolling the level above you. To enter the 
    interior of the ship, walk around to the right side. You should see one of the 
    guards around here. You can either avoid him, or take him out with your M9 
    pistol. To avoid being caught, you might ought to just take him out with your 
    M9 with a quick shot to the head, or if you're feeling a little risky, wait 
    until he's far away from the ships door and then quickly walk up to it and open 
    it (with the action button). 
    
    DECK-A, CREW'S QUARTERS
    
    There's a series of corridors here with a lone guard patrolling on the furthest 
    right corridor from where you entered. You can enter the locker room if you 
    wish, and get some goodies, or even mess around with the girly posters. ^_^ 
    Once you're done with the locker room, head back out to the corridor, and try 
    to take out the lone guard patrolling on the furthest right corridor with your 
    M9. You'll have to get him out of his route some way, cause you need to get 
    through this corridor to procede on. The easiest way, as I stated above, is 
    with the M9, but you can also make some noise (lean up against a wall, and tap 
    circle [O]) to lure him out of his route. Which either method you choose, 
    continue on down the corridor to the next door, and go through. 
    
    DECK-A, CREW'S LOUNGE
    
    From here, you should see a guy sitting on some stairs tapping on the ground 
    with his foot. Carefully pop him in the head with your M9. Go into the bar and 
    the reading area for some goodies, then head up the stairs where the guard was 
    and take the right door to procede to the next area. 
    
    DECK-B, CREW'S QUARTERS
    
    Once here, head left, and then you should see a guard patrolling this hallway
    on the upper most corridor.  Shoot him with your M9, and then continue down the
    corridor, go down, then left and continue up the stairs.
    
    DECK-C, CREW'S QUARTERS
    
    There is a secruity camera in the corridor just past the stairs, and if it
    sees you, you will go in Alert mode.  To avoid it, just lean against the wall
    and continue foward so the damned camera doesn't see you.  At the end of the
    corridor, you can go into the room here to get some items, and then continue
    up the stairs to the next area.
    
    DECK-D, CREW'S QUARTERS
    
    There are C4's in this area, but they're pretty easy to avoid.  Right when you
    go up the stairs, you should see a guard enter the dining area.  Knock him out
    with your M9, then continue into the dining area.  Go behind the counter for an
    item, and under the tables for more.  Don't bother tying to get the ammo by the
    camera, it's really not worth it and you can't use it yet anyway.  At the lower
    section of the dining area, wait until the guard outside the door turns his
    back, then go into the hall, and shoot him.  If you go around the corner, you
    will see the C4.  If you went the other way, all you had to do was duck under
    it.  But since you went the other way, you didn't even have to mess with it.
    Go back by the entrance door to the dining hall, but don't go in it.  Go up the
    stairs right next to it.  :)
    
    DECK-E, THE BRIDGE
    
    Here will be a cinema and a conversation with Otacon.  Once that is done, go
    to the door to the left side of the room, and press the action button, and get
    ready for your first boss battle action.
    
    NAVIGATIONAL DECK
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    BOSS FIGHT - OLGA GURLUKOVICH
    
    Olga's not too tough. However, right when the battle starts, you'll want to 
    shoot out the search light, which is in the back left corner of the part where 
    Olga is, as well as the tarp covering one of the crates, which is located in 
    the center of the part where Olga is. If you fail to shoot these out, she will 
    eventually use the light to blind you, and the tarp to hide behind. The trick 
    to this battle is getting Olga to think your someplace when you're actually in 
    another place. To do this, you should hide behind a crate located in one of the 
    
    nds of where you are, then either roll or crawl to the crates at the other end 
    of where you are. She should still be firing at where you were a few seconds 
    ago. While she is completely and utterly firing at the wrong place, pop up from 
    the crate at one of the ends you're hiding under, and try to shoot her in the 
    head, if you can get a clean shot. If you can't get a shot off in the head, 
    shoot the next best thing (the torso, if not that a limb, etc.). 
    
    Sometimes, if you take to long to shoot her and she can't find you, the hairy 
    armpit woman will begin to bambard you with grenades. They're not to hard to 
    avoid, and don't do that much damage when they hit you, but you should still 
    try to avoid them. If she can't find you even when she starts throwing grenades, 
    she'll start throwing them all over the damn place where you are, and it can be 
    trick to avoid. To do this, either attempt to avoid them, or show yourself, 
    then go back to hiding immediately. 
    
    Repeat the "I'm here! Now I'm not! Ha!" steps until she falls.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Now you've got a USP.  Yay!  If you want, you can go around the side of the
    navigational deck, climb up the ladders, and get some items, including the
    thermal goggles.  Once you're done, head back down, and go back through the
    door you came from back into the bridge.
    
    DECK-E, THE BRIDGE
    
    Get the items here, and continue all the way back down to Deck-A, crews lounge.
    Pretty much the same strategy in the past parts, just backwards.
    
    DECK-A, CREW'S LOUNGE
    
    Shoot the guard that's walking back and forth below the stairs, then take a
    right once you get to the bottom of the stairs, then you should come to a
    corridor with another set of stairs.  Go down, and enter the door in the little
    room at the bottom of the stairs.
    
    ENGINE ROOM
    
    In here, you should see a shadow of Raven.  No, unfortunately it's not actually
    him, just an action figure up next to a flashlight, LOL.  For some fun, shoot
    him and he'll start making noises and shoot out little pellet like thingies.
    Heh, cool.  Open the locker in this area if you want for a little scare.
    Continue onward, and the next area is pretty straight foward.  Knock out any
    guards along the way with your M9.  Your ultimate goal is to get at the totally
    opposite end you are now (west wall, top level).  Once you get here, enter the
    door, and then you'll see a scene where a guard fixes a door and patrols this
    next little area for a bit.  Not to hard, just shoot him with your M9, as
    usual.  ^_^
    
    Here, you'll get another call from Otacon, explaining how to avoid the infra
    red sensors and blowing up the bomb.  So, you should see a little green
    flashing light on the floor to the right.  Shoot it, but becareful not to hit
    the C4.  Note that you must use your USP for this.  Now, climb up on the crate
    like object with the USP ammo on it, and look up on the ledge above the door
    and you should see a second green light.  Get off the ledge, and go farward a
    bit until you are almost at the door, but don't quite pass the last infra red
    sensored wall.  You should see a little green thing protruding out of the left
    side of the wall.  Shoot it, and you should have disarmed all of the infra red
    sensors and C4.  Open the door in front of you.
    
    DECK-2, PORT
    
    Just continue down the loooong corridor, but becareful, cause there is a guard
    patrolling the first long corridor, and he can sometimes be hard to notice,
    since it seems the corridor is pretty empty.  Shoot him when you see him, and
    once you reach the end, make a right, and shoot the two guards in this
    corridor.  Go through the door to the starboard side of this deck.
    
    DECK-2, STARBOARD
    
    Just head through this long corridor, and eventually you'll activate a cinema.
    Once the cinema's done, get ready for a fun, fun battle.  Take out your USP if
    you want to have some real action, and shoot the guards from the crate you are
    behind when they walk by, and duck after you kill each guard.  After this,
    get ready for another cinema, and then you should be in the next area.
    
    HOLD NO.1
    
    You now have seven minutes to get to Metal Gear RAY's hold, take the pictures, 
    and upload them from the computer terminal to Otacon. 
    
    Pretty easy from here. Just go down the ladder, and when you reach the bottom, 
    get in the crawl position. From the bottom of the ladder, if you face north (
    up), you'll want to head west (left). In crawling position, just hug the back 
    wall, avoiding all of the marines fields of vision. Once you get to the end of 
    the back wall, head north (you should be now hugging the west [left] wall). 
    Continue going foward until you reach a door, and go through.
    
    HOLD NO.2
    
    Similar to the first hold, except now the guards will switch position to face a 
    different projector screen every 15 seconds or so. Head east (REMEMBER to 
    crawl) hugging the back wall, and once you reach the end, head north hugging 
    the east wall. Once you reach the end, go behind the crates and enter the door 
    behind them.  
    
    HOLD NO.3
    
    Ah. Here we are. Metal Gear RAY. From where you are, head back in to the 
    corner, which you be right next to you. Whip out your camera, and take a nice 
    snap shot of Metal Gear RAY from the front-right position (which is where you 
    are now). Now get into crawling position, and hug the back wall until you get 
    about half way from the west wall and east wall. Now, take a picture of Metal 
    Gear RAY, which should be directly in front of you (this will be the front 
    picture). Get back into crawling position, and head west hugging the back wall 
    again until you reach the corner. Get out your camera, and take a picture (this 
    will be the front-left picture). Now, at some point, Scott Dolph (the guy 
    making the speech) will tell his men to take a short break. At this point, the 
    marines watching the speech will look in everywhich direction, so you should 
    probably stay behind a crate or something to avoid getting seen. Another thing 
    to watch out for is when Dolph will say "Intruder in the back! Intruder to the 
    left! Intruder to the right! Intruder to the back!" or something along the 
    lines of that. The way to tell that this is about to come is when he takes a 
    long pause from his speech (which can be about 5 or so seconds). So basically, 
    whenever he is taking a pause, quickly find something to hide behind. 
    
    ANYWAY, onto the next, and last, picture. From where you are (the left corner), 
    get into crawling position and head north, hugging the west wall. Eventually, 
    you should run into a large crate. From here, stand up, whip out your camera, 
    and look to your right and up a bit, and you should see the words "Marines" 
    right there. Take a quick snapshot. Now, head ALL the way back to where you 
    took the front-right picture, making sure to crawl and hug the walls as you 
    head back. Near the corner, you should see the computer terminal. Walk up to 
    it, and press the action button, and bingo! You're done with the Tanker 
    chapter. All sorts of scenes will follow (and no, I'm not about to spoil them 
    for you), and eventually you'll be asked to save. Do so. 
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    5.2      Plant Chapter
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    In the Plant Chapter, you don't play as Solid Snake, you play as Raiden.  His
    controls are pretty much the same as Snake's, but you'll have to get used to
    his voice.  :)  Watch the scenes, then you'll gain control of Raiden.
    
    STRUT A DEEP SEA DOCK
    
    From here, head north, and open the watertight door.  You'll see a short scene,
    then continue down this hall, and open the next watertight door you come too.
    Now you will see another scene.  After its over, head to the top right corner
    of the room, and you should see a little computer.  Walk up to it and press the
    action button.  You'll be asked to give a name, then you can edit things such
    as location, blood type, etc., as well as some of the game options.  This
    computer is called a "node," and you'll be seeing quite a few more of them.
    
    Once you're done with the node, your radar will be working.  After a few
    seconds of leaving the node, the guards should wake up.  Hide behind a crate
    until the elevator comes down.  When it does, quickly sneak past the guards,
    and enter the elevator.
    
    STRUT A ROOF
    
    After a Codec conversation with the Colonel, you'll be on the roof of strut A.
    On the left grated fence, there is a little opening toward the bottom, on the
    part that juts out.  Get in crawling possition, crawl through, and then you'll
    have a Codec converstation with Colonel.
    
    STRUT A PUMP ROOM
    
    In this little room, either walk up behind the guard and snap is neck, or
    simply avoid him.  Either way, get to the node located in the top right corner
    of the little cubical area.  Just outside the cubical to the left and right,
    there should be doors.  Take the right one for now, so you can get a weapon.
    
    FA CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    A scene occurs, then the Colonel will call and explain Cypher's.  Cross this
    bridge, avoiding the Cypher (wait until it goes to the lower level), and go
    through the door at the other end.
    
    STRUT F WAREHOUSE
    
    You're on the top level of this Strut F warehouse, and on this level there
    should be a door which leads to a room that contains the M9.  It's the only
    room on this level that does not require a keycard, so it shouldn't be too
    tough to find.  Also, the node is located on the bottom floor in one of
    the south most rooms.
    
    FA CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Just head back to the Strut A door, and don't let the Cypher see you.
    
    STRUT A PUMP ROOM
    
    Now take the door on the left side, which is opposite from where you are now.
    
    AB CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    A scene and a talk with Colonel insues (yet again...).  Take out the guard on
    the far end of this walkway, then cross the bridge, not letting the other
    guard see you.
    
    STRUT B TRANSFORMER ROOM
    
    75% of this area contains scenes, and right when you enter they start.
    After the long yet awesome scenes, you'll gain control of Raiden again.
    Pliskin gave you a SOCOM, so now you can start killing people with bullets
    instead of just knocking them out.  Anyway, use the node which is located by
    the stairs near where Pliskin is.  Once you've messed with the node enough,
    go foward, walk up the stairs, go through the door here, head left, then go
    through the door here.
    
    BC CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Yet another scene and Colonel Codec call.  Continue across the bridge and enter
    Strut C.
    
    STRUT C DINING HALL
    
    Go through the little hallway here, and you find Peter Stillman.  Yet more
    scenes will insue.  Now, you must disarm all of the C4's that Fatman has
    planted in each strut.  Fun!  You now have Sensor A, which can sense Fatman's
    cologne scent, the Coolant, which is used to "freeze" the C4's, and a level 1
    keycard.  Anyway, when you gain control of Raiden head left and acess the node 
    in the next room.  Head back to the door you entered strut C from, but take the 
    door on the right to enter the women's bathroom.  Walk up to the mirror here, 
    and look up.  You should see the C4 on the ceiling.  Take out the Coolant, and 
    spray it until the light goes from green to red and you hear a little dinging 
    sound.  Stillman will contact you via Codec, and once its done head out the 
    door back to the BC connecting bridge.
    
    BC CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    There's a Cypher here now, but not much to worry about.  Cross the bridge back
    to strut B.
    
    STRUT B TRANSFORMER ROOM
    
    Shoot the guard patrolling the hallway here with your M9 so you don't alert the
    one in the actual transformer room.  Enter the transformer room through the
    door, and shoot the guard in here.  Now, next to the door you came from, there
    should be a transformer door which is open.  Close it, and you should see the
    C4.  Use the Coolant to defuse it, then go back to the hallway, go down and
    head to the AB connecting bridge.
    
    AB CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Shoot the guard patrolling the walkway, then cross back over to strut A.
    
    STRUT A PUMP ROOM
    
    From here, shoot the guard in the cubical with the M9, then go through the
    south most door in this room.  You should be in a room with a lot of pipes and
    computer terminals and such.  There should be a guard patrolling this area.
    Don't shoot him, or more guards will come to check out why he hasn't check in
    with a report.  Just avoid him for now.  From the door, head up, then walk
    over the little staircase.  Get in crawling position, and crawl under the
    pipes, then head left and crawl under two more pipes.  From here, hug the south
    wall until you go under another pipe.  Keep crawling under it until you reach
    a little square area where the C4 is.  Take out the Coolant and freeze it.  Now
    head back out to the cubical room, and take the right door.
    
    FA CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Be careful of the Cypher, and cross the bridge and go through the door at the
    end.
    
    STRUT F WAREHOUSE
    
    From where you are, head out into the main area of this room.  Shoot the guard
    on the level you are on, and head over to the left side of this room.  Go next
    to the railing, and angle yourself so you are directly over the boxes below.
    Now press the action button to hang over the railing, and then press cross (X)
    to fall down on the boxes.  Jump down into the square area here, and you should
    see the C4.  Use the Coolant to freeze it.  Now climb out, head up the stairs
    in the top right corner of the room, and go through the door at the top.
    
    EF CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Here, you'll get a Codec call from "Mr. X" explain how there are Claymore mines
    in the area.  Take out the mine detector, get in crawling possition, and crawl
    over the claymore mines (the yellow cones).  You should pick them up, and now
    they should be in your items inventory.  Also be careful of the guard looking
    out from the tower above.  Shoot him with the M9 if you can (not to hard).
    The path to the left here leads to the Shell 1 Core, but you probably don't
    want to take it since the floor is rigged.  :)  Head across the bridge area to
    the door at the other end.
    
    STRUT E PARCEL ROOM
    
    Shoot the guard with your M9 that is directly across one of the conveyor belts
    from where you are, then walk north to the node.  Access it, then go down the
    path you just walked from, but once you reach about half way head right and
    go up the stairs, and then out the door.
    
    STRUT E HELIPORT
    
    Head down this circular walkway, and a few seconds later you will active a
    scene involving Olga.  Then Pliskin will contact you via Codec, and tell you a
    bit about here (nothing you already don't know, however).  Anyway, head up the
    stairs, then either take out the guards or sneak past them, and head north
    until you reach Harrier (the jet).  Go in crawling possition, crawl under the
    wing, and then use the Coolant to take out the C4 which is right under the
    Harrier.  Go back down the stairs and enter the Parcel Room again.
    
    STRUT E PARCEL ROOM
    
    Shoot the guard closest to you, then quickly head out through the door in the
    top left corner.
    
    DE CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Take out the guard, then cross the bridge to the other side and enter the door.
    
    STRUT D SEDIMENT POOL
    
    There are a few guards here, but try not to take them out so they can still
    send in reports.  Head foward, down the stairs, then head down to access the
    node.  Now head around the whole room, until you reach the other side.  The
    C4 is under the floor.  Press the action button against the little orange patch
    of floor, then take out the Coolant and freeze the C4.  You'll now get a call
    from Stillman.
    
    Now you need to head back to Strut C and get Sensor B, which can locate
    Fatman's scentless bombs.  From where you are now, walk about half way around
    the circular room, walk up the stairs, and go through the door above where you
    just where.
    
    CD CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Be careful of the camera as well as the guards here, and go through the door
    at the other end.
    
    STRUT C DINING HALL
    
    Go back to the area where all of those long arse scenes were before, and pick
    up Sensor B here.  A Codec conversation will occur, and now you have 400
    seconds to get to Strut A Deep Sea Dock (don't worry, more than enough time).
    Go down from here and exit the door.
    
    BC CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Cross the bridge, avoiding the Cypher.  How many times have I said that now?
    
    STRUT B TRANSFORMER ROOM
    
    Shoot the guard patrolling the hall, go down the hall, make a right, then go
    through the door.
    
    AB CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Avoid the guards, and go through the door at the other end.
    
    STRUT A PUMP ROOM
    
    Pass the cubical and make a left at the south most wall, and go up the stairs
    that you originally went down when first entering this area.  Go through the
    door at the top.
    
    STRUT A ROOF  
    
    Go through the open door in the grated fence, and get on the elevator to go
    down.
    
    STRUT A DEEP SEA DOCK
    
    You'll get a call from Stillman and Pliskin here (poor Stillman).  Head
    through this room where all of the crates are, down the hall, and into the room
    where the water is.  Go around the water, and look up at the top of the
    sub-like structure.  You should see the C4.  Quickly take out your Coolant, and
    spray the blasted thing.  Head back to the elevator, and a scene occurs, and
    now you must fight Fortune.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    BOSS FIGHT - FORTUNE
    
    You can't really do much here except hide.  Get behind some crates or barrels,
    and eventually the battle will end.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    STRUT A ROOF
    
    A Codec call from Colonel appears, and now you have 400 seconds to get to the
    heliport.  *sigh*...  Be careful around here, as there are some claymore mines.  
    Use the mine detector and pick them up.  Head through the grated fence and go
    down the stairs.
    
    STRUT A PUMP ROOM
    
    Go to the door to the right of the cubical in this room.
    
    FA CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Just get across avoiding all the threats.
    
    STRUT F WAREHOUSE
    
    Go around this level, to the top right corner, and go through the door here.
    
    EF CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Just get across avoiding all the threats. ...
    
    STRUT E PARCEL ROOM
    
    Shoot the guards in here, then quickly go north and up the stairs to the
    heliport.
    
    STRUT E HELIPORT
    
    Walk through the walkway, go up the stairs, and run to the end of the heliport
    and freeze the C4 with the Coolant.  Now a scene will insue, and you will now
    fight Fatman.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    BOSS FIGHT - FATMAN
    
    You should have the Sensor A out.  He will randomly plant C4's around the
    heliport, and you must go around and freeze them with the Coolant.  After about
    two or three C4's he will take a break and start strolling around on his roller
    skates.  At this time, get out your SOCOM and blast him with about four or
    five shots until he falls down on the ground.  Now QUICKLY shoot him in the
    head.  Sometimes he might pull out a gun and start shooting at you, but it's
    pretty easy to avoid.  Repeat this process until he falls.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Once you beat him, yet another C4 will be activated.  This one's really easy
    to locate, though.  Unequip your current weapon, then grab Fatman and drag him
    away.  You'll get Peter Stillman's dog tag, and you'll see the big C4 lying
    right where he was lying.  Get out the Coolant, and freeze that bastard.
    
    Now you'll talk with the infamous Ninja, as well as get the BDU, which lets
    you disguise as an enemy guard.  However, you need an AKS-74u to go with it,
    otherwise guards will know who you are.  You'll also receive a level 2 keycard,
    and a cell phone.
    
    We now must get the AKS-74u, which is located in the Strut F warehouse.  Head
    back to the Parcel Room.
    
    STRUT E PARCEL ROOM
    
    Shoot the guards in here, then head down and exit the door in the bottom right
    corner.
    
    EF CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Cross the bridge avoiding all threats, again.
    
    STRUT F WAREHOUSE
    
    Head left here, then downwards and then left again, and enter the door here.
    There are infra red sensors here, so be careful.  Take your SOCOM, and shoot
    the control panel to deactivate the sensors.  BE CAREFUL NOT TO ALERT THE 
    GUARDS.  Anyway, get the M4 and ammo in this room.  Now exit this room, and go
    down the stairs in the top right corner.  Go left, then enter the door and get
    the AKS-74u in this room.  Now exit this room, and up the stairs and go through
    the door.
    
    EF CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Eliminate the Cypher's here, then go half way across this bridge here, then
    make a left.  Go into ducking position, and hug the railing and go across the
    bridge.  You can just run across, but the floor will collapse.  But, it's
    better to have the floor there on your way out, so I suggest you press against
    the railing now.
    
    Once you get across, get the ammo and equip the BDU and AKS-74u.  Head through
    the floor and enter the Shell 1 Core.
    
    SHELL 1 CORE, 1F
    
    Be careful not to run into any guards in this area.  If you do, your uniform
    will removed and you'll be discovered.  Anyway, continue down this hall, and
    make a left, and go downward until you reach a room.  Use the node here.  After
    you're done, go back down the hall, and enter the elevator at the end and go to
    the B2 floor.
    
    SHELL 1 CORE, B2 COMPUTER ROOM
    
    Go around this large room, and enter at the bottom.  In the top left area, the
    D.Mic is on the ground.  The node is to the right of here.  Once you're done,
    go to the elevator again, and head to the B1 floor.
    
    SHELL 1 CORE, B1
    
    Here, access the node which is in the room to the right of the elevator.  Exit
    this room, and go into the hallway.  There should be a guard patrolling around
    here.  Wait until his back is turned to you, then unequip your weapon, and
    then press square to get him into a choke possition.  Drag him over to the
    retinal scanner which is located about halfway down this hall, and then a scene
    will occur and the door will open.
    
    SHELL 1 CORE, B1 HALL
    
    A Codec conversation with Colonal occurs, and then you are left to find Ames,
    one of the presidents Secret Service agents.  He has black hair, and is not
    a woman, so if the person is bald and is a woman, it's not him.  For me, he was
    located in the bottom left area, facing the wall.  It's best to use the D.Mic 
    and locate him, as I am not sure if his location is random or not.  His 
    heartbeat is *very* weird, as it has a ringing sound to it.  Once you locate
    him, press the action button while the D.Mic is up, and then some scenes will
    occur.  You'll get the level 3 keycard from Ames.  During the middle of the
    scenes, you will have a few seconds to equip your AKS-74u.  Don't move from
    where you are, or you'll be shot.  After this, more scenes will occur, and
    then you'll be back in level B1.
    
    SHELL 1 CORE, B1
    
    Head to the elevator, but be careful of any guards that might come your way.
    Once you get to the elevator, go to the first floor.
    
    SHELL 1 CORE, 1F 
    
    Go back the way you entered.  Be careful of the guards.  You might want to
    knock them out if you can't find a clear way to get to the EF connecting
    bridge.
    
    EF CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Shoot out the Cypher's if there are any near you, then run across the bridge.
    Go down to strut F at the end of the Shell 1 Core bridge.
    
    STRUT F WAREHOUSE
    
    You now have access to all of the rooms in this area.  Go through all the doors
    you haven't already and get the PSG1 and RGB6.  After that is done, head back
    to the EF connecting bridge.
    
    EF CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Shoot the Cypher's if you need to, then cross the bridge to strut E.
    
    STRUT E PARCEL ROOM
    
    Head to the top left corner of this room and go through the door to the DE
    connecting bridge.
    
    DE CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Take out the guard, then go across the walkway and enter strut D.
    
    STRUT D SEDIMENT POOL
    
    Go down the small staircase, and walk about half way around the circular path
    until you are facing totally north, then go through the door.
    
    SHELL 1-2 CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    You'll get a call from Pliskin explaining that you need to take out the green
    light on the control panels to disarm the SEMTEX which is layed out across this
    whole bridge.  Some are far away, so I suggest using the PSG1 and a Pentazemin.
    Their locations are:
    
    1)  On the pillar directly in front of you
    2)  On the door frame right behind you
    3)  On the left side of the grated bridge, next to the pillar
    4)  On a ledge in the back-bottom-right
    5)  Behind the flag
    6)  On a Cypher flying above the door to Shell 2
    7)  On to the far back left 
    8)  On the left side of the far door
    9)  On the right side of the far door
    10) Right by the doorway on the otherside of the bridge
    
    You'll know you got them all once there is a little scene.  Head foward a bit,
    then you'll have to fight a boss.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    BOSS FIGHT - HARRIER
    
    Immediately pick up the Stinger which is right by you.  This battle is really
    not that hard, it might just take a while.  Whenever you get a clear shot, aim
    the Stinger at the Harrier until it's locked-on (the crosshair will turn red),
    then fire.  At times, it will fly all the way across the screen until you can't
    see it anymore (however you can see it on the radar).  It will then come
    rushing foward firing missles and bullets.  The bottom part of the bridge
    contains more cover than the top level does, but it's harder to hit the
    Harrier.  Pliskin will throw down ammo for the Stinger and rations 
    periodically.  Keep shooting the Harrier with Stinger missiles until it goes
    down.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight more scenes and Codec conversations will occur.  Once you gain
    conrol of Raiden again, there should be a rail right next to you.  Press the
    action button to go into hanging mode by fliping over the rail, and then go
    foward until you are under the orange pipe, then press the cross (X) button to
    fall down.  Carefully walk north, making sure not to fall off of the pipe.
    Once you get to the end, climb up onto the ledge, then walk along this bridge
    like area here, avoiding the guards that come out of the door, as well as the
    holes in the bridge area.  Once you reach the end, climb up the ladder.
    
    STRUT L PERIMETER
    
    On this walkway, there are window type things with two guards patrolling.  Go
    into crouch position, lean against the wall, and go foward.  There is a loose
    board in the walkway, so when it starts to shake quickly hurry across that
    board.  Once you get to the end of the walkway, continue to stay in crouch 
    possition, and lean up against the wall to stay on the thin ledge here.  Once
    you get to the end of the ledge, you'll see a scene where a guard has to piss,
    and he'll pee off of the ledge he is on above you.  You can avoid it by wall
    hugging or hanging over the rail if you wish, or you can have more fun by
    walking straight though it.  Feel the vibration!  O_o
    
    Once you reach the end of the walkway, go into hanging mode onto the rail, and
    drop down to the bridge area below you.  Take out all of the Cypher's in this
    area, then walk up the stairs once you get half way across the bridge you are
    currently on, and you'll be on another bridge.  There should be a busted-up
    walkway going into Shell 2 branching of the bridge you are currently on.  Walk
    up to it, then do one of those cool cartwheel jumps to get across the first
    hole.  Then go into hanging mode or crouch hug against the rail to get to the
    other end of the bridge, then enter the door at the end.
    
    SHELL 2 CORE, 1F AIR PURIFICATION ROOM
    
    Here you'll see some scenes.  Once you gain control of Raiden again, go down
    the stairs below you, then up the stairs adjecent to the ones you just went
    down.  Go north in this hall here until you are at the end, then go right into
    a room with a node.  Once you're done here, go back out in the hall to the
    elevator, and go to floor B1.
    
    SHELL 2 CORE, B1 FILTRATION CHAMBER
    
    Use the node which is right by you, then head into the water, and swim foward
    until you get to a room with the Nikita.  Once you've obtained it, just swim
    back to the elevator area, get in, and go back to the first floor.
    
    SHELL 2 CORE, 1F AIR PURIFICATION ROOM
    
    Go down the hall, then down the stairs.  Stand on the large crate/ledge like
    thing, and then fire a Nikita missle into the vent.  The vent is pretty
    straight foward, and eventually it will feed out into the room with the
    president.  Control the missile and ram it right into the large control panel
    like objects.  Now take Raiden back up the stairs to the right, down this hall,
    until you get to the floor that was previously electrified.  Go across, and
    head through this door.  You'll have some scenes with the president, and the
    usual Codec stuff.  Once this is done, head out back through the door, down
    the stairs, up the stairs, down the hall, in the elevator, and go to B1.
    
    SHELL 2 CORE, B1 FILTRATION CHAMBER
    
    The part ahead is a little tricky.  Whenever you need air, swim to the little
    white spots on the map, and then swim up to get more oxygen.  Anyway...
    
    Go into the water, and take the first right you come too.  Then go left, then
    right, then right again.  Go left until you reach a door, then open it.  Swim
    through this rubble here, then go up the stairs and through the level 4 keycard
    required door.
    
    Some scenes occur, then you fight Vamp.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    BOSS FIGHT - VAMP
    
    Vamp can be a pretty tough opponent.  First of all, you don't want to fall down
    in the water, or you will be instantly killed.  Secondly, when he glows redish,
    he is immune to bullet-based attacks.  Anyway, there are three places he could
    be on this map: in the water, on the area you are on, or the railing of the
    catwalk above you.  When he is in the water, throw in grenades or some sort
    of explosive.  When he is on the level you are on, and he is his normal color,
    shoot him with a bullet-based, preferably the M4 or the AKS-74u.  When he is
    on your level but red, hit him with an explosive, preferably the Stinger or
    a grenade from the RGB6.  When he is on the railing of the catwalk, either
    shoot him with a bullet-based weapon, or the Stinger.
    
    The attacks you want to look out for are the knives he throws when he's on the
    top level, and the "shadow-freezing" attack, in which case you freeze in place
    and can't do anything.  To avoid both of these attacks, just keep moving 
    around.  His last lethal attack is when he starts using his knife in crazy ways
    when he is on your level.  It's nigh impossible to avoid, as he's flipping
    every which direction, and I have no idea how to avoid him.  Hopefully you have
    enough life to survive.  The best way to try to take as little damage as
    possible is to stand in one place and get out a bullet-based weapon and attempt
    to shoot him whenever he comes near you.  There is a way to avoid being caught
    by his shadow-freezing attack.  At the beginning of the battle, look at the
    ceiling of this area, and shoot out the lights, which will render his
    shadow-freezing attack useless.
    
    Shoot him using the tactics from the first paragraph, and eventually he will
    "die".
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After this fight, head north and use the door in the top right corner.  Go
    under water, and go in following directions: right, left, left.  Get out of the
    water, and access the node.  Open the lockers here and eventually you'll 
    stumble across Emma.
    
    Now you have to swim all the way back to the elevator.  I know, it's a pain
    in the ass.  Just use the same directions as I gave before, just do it in
    
    everse order, and switch the directions (if I said right, go left, and if I
    said left, go right).  Once you get to the elevator, Emma will start to
    complain about bugs.  Just whip out your Coolant, and spray them, and they
    should go away in little packs.  Once they're all gone, take Emma to the
    elevator, and go to 1F.
    
    SHELL 2 CORE, 1F AIR PURIFICATION ROOM
    
    Take out all of the guards in this area, then take Emma and head back to the
    entrance of the Shell 2 Core, and head through the door.
    
    KL CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    The bridge is fixed now, but it's still a good idea to take out all of the
    Cypher's and guards around the area.  Once you have, cross the bridge, then
    use the Coolant to take out the fire on the bridge that the Shell 2 Core bridge
    connects too.  Continue down the bridge and go through the door at the end.
    
    STRUT L SEWAGE TREATMENT FACILITY
    
    Knock out the two guards with the M9, then head down, and watch as more scenes
    occur.
    
    STRUT L OIL FENCE
    
    Oooooo, sniping action!  Emma has to get across the oil fence, and you must use
    the PSG1 to shoot things down as she crosses.  Use a Pentazemin, and then 
    collect the Thermal Goggles if you don't already have them (should be on the 
    ground near you), and equip them.  First, take out the claymore mines on the 
    first walkway, then the ones on the last walkway.  Shoot any Cypher's or guards
    that you see, and make sure they don't hit Emma.  If Emma gets hit, it's okay,
    don't reset the game or anything.  Despite her being very small, she is one
    tough cookie.  Once she gets to the last walkway, Vamp will pop up... again.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    BOSS FIGHT - VAMP
    
    Vamp is easy this time.  Just shoot him in the head, but becareful not too
    shoot Emma.  After about three shots, the battle ends.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    STRUT E MATERIAL DISTRIBUTION FACILITY
    
    This area is pretty straight foward.  Just use the southern most door here to
    go to the EF connecting bridge.
    
    EF CONNECTING BRIDGE
    
    Shoot down the Cypher's here, then take the bridge that leads to the Shell 1
    Core.
    
    SHELL 1 CORE, 1F
    
    Quickly head to the elevator, and go down the B2.
    
    SHELL 1 CORE, B2 COMPUTER ROOM
    
    More scenes (probably some of the most emotional ones in the game) occur, as
    well as the Ninja knocking you out.
    
    ARSENAL GEAR - STOMACH
    
    Here you will see more scenes, and you will be "tortured" by oxygen-stealer
    type things.  Once you see the O2 gauge pop up, press triangle as fast as you
    can to recover your oxygen.  After this and more scenes, you will be eventually 
    released from the table you were locked onto.  Head out of this room to the
    right, access the node here, then leave this area from by the door you should 
    be near.
    
    ARSENAL GEAR - JEJUNUM
    
    Since you are naked and there are many guards here, try to avoid taking any of
    them out or you will most likely be caught.  Also, you should be getting mass
    Codec calls from Colonel.  You can either look at them (some can be humerous),
    or you could just ignore them (although you will need to check your Codec calls
    in a bit).  Head foward, then up the stairs to the left, then carefully go
    foward passing the guards here, and go through the door on the right.
    
    ARSENAL GEAR - ASCENDING COLON
    
    In here, keep checking your Codec calls, and eventually you should get Rose
    instead of the mad Colonel.  After this, you'll get some more scenes, and Snake
    will appear again, and give you your equipment and the H.F.Blade.  Equip it,
    then use the right analog stick to mess around with it for a bit, then go north
    and a scene will insue yet again, and you'll head into the next room.
    
    ARSENAL GEAR - ILEUM
    
    Ah, some bust 'em up action!  Get out either your SOCOM or M4 (preferably M4),
    and shoot all of the guards that come near you, then take cover behind some of
    the crates if you get under heavy fire.  Cautiously continue forward, taking
    out any guards that get in your way.  If you run out of ammo or are near
    running out of ammo, Snake will throw some to you.  Once you kill a specific
    amount of guards, you can continue to the next area.
    
    ARSENAL GEAR - SIGMOID COLON
    
    In this circular room, get out a gun, and prepare to shoot the oncoming flood
    of guards.  For some real fun, get out the H.F.Blade and slice all of the
    guards to death.  In fact, I actually _recommend_ you use the blade, because
    you HAVE to use it very soon, and you might as well get some practice now.
    At some point, a sort of game over screen will come up, but it will say "Emit"
    instead of "Continue."  YOU ARE STILL ALIVE.  Use the little screen in the
    top left corner to shoot and stuff, and eventually the fake Game Over screen
    will go away.  After this battle, another scene will occur, then you head up
    the ladder to the next area.
    
    ARSENAL GEAR - RECTUM
    
    Here, you'll see some scenes, and then a boss fight will come.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    BOSS FIGHT - METAL GEAR RAYS
    
    At first, this battle seems extremely hard, but it is actually not as hard as
    it might seem.  In normal, you have to fight about five of them, but it might
    vary on other difficulties.
    
    Anyway, the only weapon you should be using during this battle is the Stinger.
    The object is to either shoot them in the head, or shoot them in the leg, then
    the head.  Shooting them in the leg then the head does much more damage, but it
    also takes more time, thus making you more vulnerable to attacks.
    
    At the beginning of the battle, three Metal Gear RAYs will be standing in the
    back.  Do the above strategy, BUT damage them all three equally.  Once one of
    them gets to about 1/2 to 1/4 health, it will jump out to the center of the
    area.  Do the same strategy as above.  Once you destroy the one in the center,
    another will jump into the center, but if you damage them equally like I said,
    you shouldn't have to hit this one that much since it doesn't have much health.
    This process will continue until you kill about five Metal Gear RAYs.
    
    The Metal Gear RAYs have four attacks: shooting a barrage of bullets at you,
    shooting missiles into the air that are suppossed to be aimed at you, firing a
    laser at the ground when you get to close, and firing heat seeking missiles
    while it's in the center.  To avoid the bullet attack, simply run out of the
    way.  To avoid the missiles that are fired in the air, keep moving around.  You
    can tell how close they are by the beeping sound, the closer they get, the
    faster the beeping goes.  To avoid the laser, just walk out of the way.  To
    avoid the heat seeking missiles, go to the edge of the area, and right when
    they get close to you, either jump out of the way, or get into crawling
    possition.  They should go past you.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the battle, MORE scenes will occur.  Another part occurs where you must
    repeatedly press triangle to gain oxygen, like in the torture part earlier.
    After that, you'll end up on Federal Hall.
    
    FEDERAL HALL
    
    One final battle.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    BOSS FIGHT - SOLIDUS SNAKE
    
    This battle is actually quite easy.  You can only use the H.F.Sword here.  The
    only thing you really need to watch out here is to not fall off of the roof,
    otherwise you're screwed.  O_o  Anyway, I found this battle most easy if you
    do a 360 degree attack (spin the right analog stick around), then do vertical
    slashes, and you can hit him up to about three times.  Once you hit him,
    quickly run away.  Just repeat this process until he's about 2/5 health, then
    he will start charging across the roof, making flame walls as he goes.  If you
    get caught on fire, roll on the ground until it goes out.  Repeat the same
    process as above at this point as well, just be more cautious.
    
    Rinse and repeat until he is dead.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    H A N D G U N S
    
    /M9/  This handgun uses tranquilizer darts as its ammunition, and comes
    equipped with a suppressor and laser sight.  It is extremely powerful, and it
    can take a while (several minutes depending on the difficulty) for a guard to
    recover from the dart.  Note, however, that it will not kill them, no matter
    how many times you hit them.  Always try to aim for the head, as hitting them
    in certain body parts might take more or less time for them to get knocked out.
    
    /USP/  The USP fires real bullets, so you can actually kill people.  It has a
    laser sight, but no suppressor, so it's fairly loud and will catch the
    attention of guards.  However, it does have a light attatched to it, but it
    doesn't really help THAT much...
    
    /SOCOM/  Similar to the USP, however it seems to be a bit more powerful.  It
    also comes with a laser sight, but has no suppressor, however you CAN use a
    suppressor with it if you find a suppressor.  Be careful when using this thing,
    it's pretty damn loud.
    
    R I F L E S
    
    /AKS-74u/  This is what most of the terrorists use in the game.  Has a laser
    sight.  For mass chaos, jump the square button as hard as you can, and hails 
    of bullets should come spewing out.
    
    /M4/  Very similar to the AKS-74u, but it doesn't seem to be quite as accurate.
    Comes with a laser sight.  Use the same tactic for the AKS-74u for a crazy
    bullet shower.
    
    /PSG1/  MGS2's sniper rifle.  Very powerful, and can zoom in pretty darn close.
    Press circle to zoom in closer, and cross (X) to zoom back out.  Fire in the
    head for best results.  :)
    
    /PSG1-T/  The exact same thing as the PSG1, only it fires tranquilizer darts
    instead.
    
    E X P L O S I V E  W E A P O N S
    
    /Stinger/  Ah.  Many of us should know this weapon of mass destruction from the
    last game.  Aim, shoot, bang.  Use the crosshairs to lock on a targer, then
    just fire and watch the heat seeking missles do their job.
    
    /Nikita/  This really only has one purpose in the game, but is still fun
    nonetheless.  Fire the weapon, and use the directional buttons to steer it.
    Unfortunately, you can't go up or down with it, you can only go left or right.
    
    /RGB6/  Your standard grenade launcher of mass destruction.  Unfortunately you
    can't fire extreme distances, but its crazy damage makes up for that.
    
    G R E N A D E S
    
    /Grenade/  Use these to blow those pesky guards into little pieces.  Pull the
    pin by holding square, and keep holding it to increase the range.  But don't
    hold it TOO long...
    
    /Chaff Grenade/  These disable all electrical applicances for a certain
    amount of time.  Pull the pin by holding square, and keep holding it to
    increase the range.
    
    /Stun Grenade/  Stuns enemies by causing them to loose vision and sound for a
    sort period of time.  Blast them with whatever you've got during this period.
    
    E X P L O S I V E S
    
    /C4/  Booooooooom!  Tired of defusing all of those damned C4's?  Plant your
    own then!  Plant it with square, and remote detonate it with circle.
    
    /Claymore/  I just like to call these things "proximity mines," cause, well,
    that's sorta what they are.  They blow up when anyone goes in its line of
    "vision."  The fun thing to do is plant them and then lure guys into them.
    Mwahahahahahahaha...
    
    M I S C E L L A N E O U S
    
    /Coolant/  Use these to "freeze" those darn C4's.  It has other uses too, such
    as pissing off bugs and putting out fires...
    
    /High Frequency Blade/  Oooooooooh!  What's this?  A sword?  Awesome.  Press
    up and down on the right analog stick for a vertical swing, for a thrust press
    down on the right analog stick, and for a spin attack spin the right analog
    stick in a 360 degree motion.
    
    /Magazine/  An empty magazine for a handgun.  It's purpose?  Toss it to
    distract a guard.
    
    /Book/  Full of naughty girly pictures.  O_o  Use to distract guards.  To bad
    you can't read them yourself.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    6.2      Items
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    /Rations/  Standard military rations.  Use them to heal your life gauge.  Also
    stops bleeding.
    
    /Bandage/  Stops bleeding.  No more blood trails, eh?  And that beeping noise
    goes away too!
    
    /Camera/  Use to take pictures, mainly of Metal Gear RAY in the Tanker chapter.
    
    /DG.Camera/  Take pictures and save them to your memory card.
    
    /Cigs/  Use these thingies to detect invisible things, such as infra red
    sensors.  As the game says, highly addictive and hazardous to your health.  So,
    yes, you loose your health.  ^_^
    
    /Thermal Googles/  Use these these to detect objects that omit heat.  AKA
    bodies, claymores, infra red sensors, etc.
    
    /Pentazemin/  Basical you use these things to improve your aim, especially
    useful with the sniper rifles, PSG1 and PSG1-T.
    
    /Body Armor/  With this, damage you recive is halfed.
    
    /Sensor A/  Use this to detect some C4's.  Only the kind with Fatman's cologne
    smell.  I wonder how bad he smells without cologne...
    
    /Sensor B/  Use to detected Fatman's "odorless" C4's.  But I don't see how
    they can be odorless...
    
    /AP Sensor/  Used for sensing enemy sentries.  Basically, when a guard is near,
    the controller will vibrate.
    
    /Cardboard Box/  Gotta love these.  Whenever you are discovered, these are a
    good way to avoid being re-discovered.  You can even look out the side of the
    box!  Comes in a verity, and I'll list them, once I get more time.  :)
    
    /Phone/  Your common cell phone that you see everyday, comes with email
    capabilities, and vibrates when you get a call/email.
    
    /D. Mic/  Whenver you point this at a life form of some sort, you basically
    hear their heartbeat.  Pretty cool if you ask me.
    
    /N.V.G./  Night Vision Goggles.  See in the dark, ooooooh.
    
    /Medicine/  Use to cure colds.
    
    /Dog Tags/  Dog Tags containing information from the contest winners of...
    something.  Collect them to gain some good items.
    
    /Bandana/  Give Snake unlimited ammo (can only be used in the Tanker Chapter).
    
    /Stealth/  Make Snake invisible (but you can still see some things like ammo).
    
    /B.D.U./  Disguise as an enemy guard.  Pretty cool if you ask me.

    Here we are.  Quite possibly the hardest part of this entire FAQ, because it
    requires so much writing.  For the MGS2 script, there are not any actions AT
    THE MOMENT.  Once I finish the full script, I will go back in add in the
    actions.  It is to hard to do all of the dialogue and actions all in one go, so
    once I finish the dialogue I will go back and add the actions.  And I 
    appologize for any grammatical or spelling errors, I am not perfect.  :)

    SOLID SNAKE: The Hudson River, two years ago... We had classified intellegence
    that a new type of Metal Gear was scheduled for transport.  The whole thing
    stank, but our noses had been out in the cold too long.
    
    SHALASHASKA/REVOLVER OCELOT: Our boy is right on schedule.  He'll know soon
    enough...
    
    SOLID SNAKE: This is Snake.  Do you read me, Otacon?
    OTACON: Loud and clear, Snake.
    SOLID SNAKE: Kept you waiting, huh?  I'm at the "sneak point."
    OTACON: Everything going okay?
    SOLID SNAKE: The stealth camo's busted.  Landing impact.
    OTACON: We must have overused it.  Sorry, but you're gonna have to deal with 
    it.  You're not in the military anymore.
    SOLID SNAKE: Right.  I didn't plan on relying on this gadget anyway.
    OTACON: The private sector is not so bad, is it?  Privacy guaranteed...
    SOLID SNAKE: I'm happy as long as no one gives me any more unwanted gifts.
    OTACON: You mean that thing with Naomi?
    SOLID SNAKE: And I can't say I miss the chattering nanny either.
    OTACON: Mei Ling's not so bad.  That reminds me, I have to get in touch with
    her again about that new Natik flashware.
    SOLID SNAKE: Diverting toys from the SSCEN (U.S. Army Soldier System Center)
    again?  Giver he a message for me: someone will find out sooner or later.  
    She's better off assuming it's sooner and quite while she's safe.
    OTACON: Too true.  Okay, Snake, let's get to work.  You know the technical
    specs of Metal Gear were sold on the black market after Shadow Moses?
    SOLID SNAKE: All Ocelot's doing...
    OTACON: Exactly.  And now every state, group and dotcom has its own version of
    Metal Gear.
    SOLID SNAKE: Not exactly a classified weapon for today's nuclear powers.
    OTACON: This new one seems to have been designed to wipe the floor with all the
    other models.  The only consistent description is that it's an amphibious,
    anti-Metal Gear vehicle...
    SOLID SNAKE: That explains why this one is under the Marine Corps jurisdiction.

    "In the Darkness of Shadow Moses: The Unoffical Truth"
    
          Author: Nastasha Romanenko
          Reviewed by George Franklin
    
    Some topics in the recent American past have the immediacy and power that still
    engage our collective imagination.  Name's like, "The Grassy Knoll," or
    "Roswell," roll off our tongue with deliberates by most other nations for holy
    lands.  With this new non-fiction account from Nastasha Romanenko, Shadow
    Moses--the scene of a nuclear siege two years ago--is set to join their ranks.
    
    Official history states that the official takeover of a nuclear weapons
    disposal facility on a lonely outpost on the Fox Islands, Alaska was the work
    of a radical right-wing group.  Their demands for the release of group members
    incarcerated in federal penitentiaries were never met, and the incident was
    speedily resolved by the successful deployment of a commando unit.  B.S., the
    author asserts.  Romanenko says that she served as an advisor to the Nuclear
    Emergency Search Team, and deconstructs what she claims what she claims to be
    a cover-up story by the government with precision.
    
    According to the author, Shadow Moses Island was nothing less then the U.S
    Army's testing grounds for a top secret weapon known as Metal Gear REX, an
    all-terrain bipedal tank with advanced nuclear capabilities.  As for the
    facilities takeover, Romanenko alleges that it was the U.S. military's own
    shadowy "wet-works" force, known as "FOXHOUND," that staged an armed 
    insurrection in a bid for REX's possession.
    
    The government responds to this crisis by sending in a lone operative, a former
    FOXHOUND member known only by the code name "Solid Snake," into Shadow Moses.
    His infiltration is aided by a remote mission control team consisting of an
    unidentified "Colonel Campbell," FOXHOUND medical cheif "Naomi," radar and
    electronics expert "Mei Ling" (supposedly a teenager), and the auther herself.
    Once on the island, "Snake" joins forces with Metal Gear's developer-turned-
    prisoner "Otacon" to eradicate the weapon of mass destruction.
    
    Among the other remarkable characters that make an appearance in Romanenko's
    expose is another FOXHOUND commando, a revolver-virtuoso called "Shalashaska"
    a.k.a. "Revolver Ocelot."  One of the most controversial allegations in the
    book deals with this figures connection to a disavowed Russian led by a 
    "Colonel Gurlukovich."  Romanenko paints a bleak picture of a thousand-strong,
    highly disciplined army with nuclear weaponry operating covertly within the
    American border.  Even more irresistible to conspiracy scholars and students of
    recent history is her thinly veiled suggestion that the whole affair was 
    planned from the beginning by certain forces inside the U.S. government.
    
    The U.S. Army and the usual suspect of federal agencies have issued a statement
    denouncing the book as a complete fabrication.  However, with the number of
    detailed eyewitness accounts that back up the author's assertions cropping up
    the daily web, the denials serve more to enhance the book's growing reputation.
    "Shadow Moses" is an engrossing read for casual and serious readers alike, and
    promises to involve readers in a meaty debate over truth of the matter for many
    years to come.

    So you want to cover ever inch of this game, eh?  Well, you've come to the
    right place.  This section is the most heavily under construction, so don't
    expect to see a lot done.

    8.1      Dog Tags
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Dog Tags are really the only "secret" type items that can unlock things, like 
    items, etc. How to you get them, you ask? It's quite simple, really. All you 
    have to do is do the "Stick 'em up" tactic, and they will drop a dog tag. 
    Pretty much every guard in the game has a dog tag, and each difficulty (very 
    easy, easy, normal, hard, extreme) can be played over and over until you collet 
    all of the dog tags. However, once you get a dog tag from a specific guard, the 
    will never drop it again on the game you are currently playing. Anyway, this 
    section will list all of the dog tags, where to get them, and the rewards for 
    getting them. However, only the "where to get them" part is complete at the 
    moment...

    8.3      Fun Quirks & Secrets
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    /DG.CAMERA/  To get the digital camera, simply beat the game.  I'm pretty sure
    this is the way to get it.  You get it in both the Tanker and Plant Chapter,
    and you can save your pictures to your memory card.
    
    /RAIDEN OPENING SCREEN/  Once you beat the game, instead of the red picture of
    Snake being on the opening screen, a blue Raiden will be there.  Pretty neat.
    
    /CODEC FUN/  To zoom in on the character portraits in the character screen,
    press L3 and R3 (L3 = pushing the left analog stick, R3 = pushing the right
    analog stick).  You can also move around the character portraits by moving
    around the left and right analog sticks.
    
    /JAPANESE MODELS/  Ever notice the posters of the Japanese models in the Tanker
    Chapter in the Deck-A crew's quarters?  Well, if you open the far left-back
    locker and the far right-front locker, you will see two of these posters.  If
    you go inside one of the lockers where the posters are, you can press L1 to
    lean foward, and you can actually hear Snake smootching them.  If you lean
    against the far left-back locker while it is open and you have a weapon
    equipped, then tap it by pressing the circle (O) button, you will here a boing
    sound when you tap the breats!  Then unequip your weapon, and tap the "lower
    region" of the poster, and get ready for something very, very funny.  Note:
    you might want to take out all of the guards in this area before you tap the
    lower region, for saftey precautions.
    
    /CINEMA FUN/  To pan in during the cinema's, simply press the L1 button.  But
    don't have to much fun with Olga's armpits, now!
    
    /PLESSKEN/  Snake gives Raiden the name Pliskin for his SEAL identity.  The
    main character of John Carpenter's Escape from New York/Escape from Los Angeles
    movies is... Snake Plessken, same pronounciation.
    
    /WATCH IT KID/  After you get the SOCOM from Pliskin and the scenes are over,
    he should be sleeping.  If you aim the M9 or SOCOM at him, he will get mad at
    you and start saying stuff like "What are you trying to pull?"  He will still

    9.       Frequently Asked Questions
    -+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    
    What?!  You have questions?!  Oy, I guess I'll have to answer them then.  If
    you have a question, feel free to email me, and as long as I'm in a good mood
    then I shouldn't bombard you with threats.
    
    Q:  WHICH HOSTAGE IS AMES?  I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND HIM.
    A:  His location is totally random every game, however he always has black
        hair, and is always a male.  So, he is never bald, and is never a woman.
        It's pretty easy to find out which guy he is with the D. Mic, as you
        should hear a weird beeping sound when you point it at him.
    
    Q:  HELP!  I'M NAKED AND I'M STUCK IN THE ASCENDING COLON!  WHAT DO I DO?
    A:  Check your Codec calls!  You're probably getting crazy (yet humorous) calls
        from the Colonel.  However, at some point while you are in the Ascending
        Colon, you will get a call from Rose, instead of the gone-bad Colonel.
        Then the game will continue on, after that call.
    
    Q:  HELP!  I HAVE MY CLOTHES BACK AND I JUST GOT THE SWORD FROM SNAKE, BUT I'M
        STUCK IN THE ASCENDING COLON AGAIN!
    A:  Just practice with the sword for a bit, then head up the colon and the game
        should continue.

    If you have some input on the FAQ itself (i.e. a secret, or something like
    that), you should probably email it to me, since I'll probably forget if you
    give it to me through AIM/MSN/ICQ.  If you message me through some form other
    than email, you might not recieve a response.  This is because I am either a)
    doing something private, b) working on the FAQ, c) eating, d) not even at the
    computer, or e) just ignoring you.  So, email me for best results, otherwise
    you might not get a response.
