    V. 0.4 - Started Jan 14th 2002 - I added the basic part of the FAQ, i started
    the Tanker chapter and completed
    V. 0.5 - Started Jan 15th 2002 - Finished the Tanker chapter. Added charcter
    info. Added internet ranking guide. Added DARK SECRETS section.
    V. 0.7 - Started Jan 16th 2002 - After accidentally sending this FAQ twice in,
    I finally remembered to put the heading in. Started through Plant Chapter, went
    well through it.
    V. 0.9 - Started Jan 17th 2002 - Fixed up some things, deleted the stuff that
    wasn't needed.
    V. 1.0 - BIG Update. Started Jan 22nd - I got to fix up a few stuff. I
    completed the 'BOSSES' section (So many things for each boss is a sure win
    ^_^). Some items that people couldn't find even though answered many times in
    the message boards are also listed.
    I made an Expansion Pack in the Dark secrets FAQ which would be the best thing
    to read if you're interested in the Dark Secrets section.
    However I will only paste a bit of the things from there into here.
    It's 30th Jan. and I think I have finished the update (phew!).
    STILL, it's not complete! I added some info on some chosen characters by me,
    there is a lot more in my Dark Secrets FAQ.
    Metal Gear Rays have been explained by me for the Extreme mode section
    (PHEW!!!!!!!!) and now there is Solidus. He's not as hard, but with no Rations
    I think I'll next to update it in a month or more!

    This "Speed Walkthrough" FAQ was made for the Action Game 'Metal Gear Solid 2:
    Sons of Liberty' for the Sony Playstation 2 (Ps2).
    This FAQ was made single handed, so no extra credit will be taken to any
    contributors, as there are NONE.
    This FAQ was not made to be big in size. Basically, simple, neat and
    straight-forward work is presented to get the job done.

    \  Introduction    /
    /                  \
    Firstly, a basic question all might ask. 'What is different about this FAQ from
    the many others?'. Well, this FAQ's main section, the WALKTHROUGH was made so
    players could complete the game fully in little time. However, I will explain
    some details as I go along.
    Text, Cutscenes will all be summarized very briefly. The WALKTHROUGH is the
    main section, also, Misc. sections are added AFTER the walkthrough.
    My main goal: People to gain Easy Access to the Walkthrough. People who would
    like to go further into the game can read ahead.
    *Please note: This FAQ was not made for Metal Gear Solid 2 starters, please
    check out other Faqs people have written for specific
    details/cutscenes/storyline etc.

    - Tanker -
    MISSION: Infiltrate the Tanker and provide evidence of production of a new
    prototype codenamed METAL GEAR RAY.
    *A CAMERA has been issued into your ITEMS* section to provide this evidence.
    You will start off as SolidSnake.
    * Cutscenes show that Russians have invaded the Ship, you are not alone.
    =Locate Metal Gear Ray=
    -Equip your M9 tranq. gun and head Left. Keep low profile and head along the
    edge of the ship. Head Northwest along the side. A guard will be standing along
    the door. Shoot him and turn the Valve to open the door.
    (You can also take the right area and go through the door there, if you do,
    it's a  lot quicker but less counting on I think, if you do then continue at
    the point with the ***)
    -Head east and south. Ignore the upper room and continue east in the Crew's
    ***A guard will be narrowing he path up and down, shoot from afar go through
    the door in the northeast into the Lounge.
    -Face West and Crawl, head shoot the two guards to put them to sleep. Head up
    the stairs and go through the door on the right.
    -Head North and kill the guard when he walks the opposite way. Head through his
    guarded corridor and then left from a conjunction. Head into the left room and
    up the stairs.
    -Press 'X' to skip the cutscene and as you near the camera, tuck into the wall
    and slide across to prevent getting spotted. Continue right and up the stairs
    you see.
    -Head towards the screen (up, left, down) and enter the door on the left. Go
    through and tranq. the guard. Walk around and keep south to avoid the camera.
    At the right time, head up the stairs when the south guard is not looking.
    *A cutscene will show a different Russian unit infiltrate the ship. Then
    SolidSnake will notice someone in the distance to the West*
    -Open the door and enter the Battlefield.
    Tactic: Confuse her
    Ammo will appear in the bottom right corner and in the center/north middle for
    the M9. The trick to beating her quickly is to wait for her to come up close,
    while he hides to reload or take cover, switch to the opposite side. Aim
    carefully and quickly for her head or chest. Press L1 sometimes to auto aim on
    her in fast situations.
    When she blows the covers all over, look at the top of the screen to see where
    she is or look carefully frm where her shots appear from. Shoot in that
    direction. DO NOT shoot her legs, it does minimal damage and will take a lot
    longer to win. When she shoots the headlight to blind you, randomly shoot
    bullets there to shoot the light out.
    The battle will be over shortly.
    *About 5-7 good shots will Knock her out.
    -You will obatin the USP handgun from Olga (No BULLETS). *If you want, shake
    her for her Dogtag*
    -Head Right all the way and a guard will open the door to secure the area. He
    doesn't look your way, so Tranq. him.

    (Too LOUD). Head south down the stairs.
    -Head left missing the camera, Tranq. the watchful guard. Head into the EAST
    door up the top and down the stairs.
    -Shoot the NEW patrolling guard quickly. Slide across the wall to avoid the
    camera. Head down the stairs. Head through the door and take the north route,
    tranq. the guard and head to the other side using the corridor. head south and
    enter the door midway on the left into the Lounge.
    -Head down the stairs and to the right. Don't head south, you will only be
    backtracking, head to the stairs a little bit north and down them. Go through
    the door to enter the engine room.
    -Head north, ignore the TOY shadow of Vulcan Raven. Go through the door and
    combo the guard to knock him off, landing on another guard way below, killing
    them both. Hang off the ledge and drop down, becareful of the guard. head down
    the stairs and across the path to the other side. Head across the platform and
    south. turn left and up the stairs, kill the guard patrolling the narrow path
    at the top. Once again, use the platform to cross to the other side a bit
    north. Now head left and up the stairs. Kill the guard and go through the door.
    -As you head north, a talking guard will appear directly south of you. Just
    tranq. him. Now north west. Aproach the sensors and you'll get a call. Just
    skip it. Jump onto the Metal object and press R2+L2 to stretch up, using the
    USP shoot the green light (control unit). Now head pass 1 dead sensor, on the
    Right on the floor is another control unit, shoot it. Then proceed, on the left
    you can see a bit of a unit onto of the bombs, destroy it and open the door
    direclty infront of you.
    -Head north through the long narrow passage until you reach a guard. Tranq. him
    from a safe distance and head to the other end. At the corner, tranq. the Radio
    listening guard and proceed east. There will be a sleeping occasionaly guard
    with a status report, tranq. him and quickly open the door at the far end.
    -Head right then south and eventually you will come to a Cutscene which will
    engage in battle. Use the USP and pick the guards off from the crates. South of
    you is two packets of Ammo and a Ration that will appear when you get low on
    -After that you will automatically head through the door and a scene with
    OCELOT shooting a guard at point blank range will be shown. You are now in the
    holds, guards surround the area.
    -To do this quickly, head down the series of ladders until you get to the
    bottom. Head across to the left and crawl under the projector. Carefully move
    around the guard watching the east in the tight area and head north to the
    -In this area, head left and press the button to change the projector, then
    crawl under. Switch the button to make the guards face the opposite way if you
    have trouble. Head to the right and then north, Roll over the steel areas and

    -In this room you will see Metal Gear Ray, the commandant (Fortune's Husband).
    As soon as you get control, don't move. Select the CAMERA from your Items and
    aim at the crotch of the Metal Gear Ray, take the photo and a little chime is
    heard for confirmation. Head to the south in the middle on the room and on the
    floor is a thick back line, stand on it and aim at the Ray and take the photo.
    Now head over to the other side approximately the same area and angle, then
    take the photo as a whole to hear the chime. Now head north (avoiding the

    just threw. Now look for the Harrier on your map and aim (when the box gets
    red). Continue this until health is eventually going low on the Harrier.
    Eventually the Harrier will launch mulitple missles at you (Solidus will say
    DIE!!)Head downstairs and hide to make sure you don't lose health.
    He will once or twice launch a big missle that just BLOWS everything up,
    becareful of this.
    When you get low on Stinger Missles, Pliskin feeds you more. Jst keep shooting
    it with the stinger and eventually it'll die out.
    -After the cutscene use the edge to hang on and shimmy across to land on the
    pipe. Head north (walking) and walk up. Go acorss the platform while running so
    you don't fall. Hang down and land on the platform.
    -Tranq. the guards that appear and Raiden Flip over the first gap. Then hang
    and simmy across the second gap. Go up the ladder.
    -You are on the STRUT L perimeter head across it while missing the guards, use
    a Chaff grenade to make the cypher wacko. Lean against the wall and walk
    across, then crouch and do it to get under the object sticking out. Continue
    around and drop down on the platform.
    -Walk across and go up the stairs. Use a chaff to disarm the cyphers. Quickly
    raiden flip over the gap to get down. Now shimmy across the gap using the edge.
    Destory or confuse the cyphers and go through the door.
    -After the cutscene head west, down and up the stairs. Head north past the node
    and into the elevator. Go to B1.
    -Once down, head downstairs into the water. Swim directly straight all the way,
    the NIKITA is at the end. Grab it and headback useing the elevator.
    -Once on the original floor, head left then south. Turn right at the door. Take
    care of the cameras. Stand on the box and use the nikita, shoot the  missle
    through the gap. Follow the short path, dodge the president and aim the missle
    at the generator object.
    -Head out, south and past the area of te stairs. Now head north and turn left,
    through the door.
    =President - Dead=
    -After the cutscenes, head back to the elevator and back to the water. I will
    guide you through fully now.
    =Rescue Emma=
    *Get in the water and head down the stairs
    *Turn right where the light blue air space is
    *Go straight and refill air
    *Swim South and then turn left at the first turn.
    *Now swim on and turn right
    *Keep going, turn left, then turn right
    *Head straight dodging the water bombs and refill air
    *Open the door and go in
    *Turn left then right, then swim up and over the debree.
    *Then turn right and refill your air, you will now have the PSG1-T.
    *Swim over the dberee, open the door and refill air.
    *Go under water and turn right and swim up the stairs.
    -Now walk into the room using the door.....
    Tactic: Dodge his knives
    I can explain this in a long way...or in a short way. The short way is much
    simpler, but people still might not get it, but here goes:
    1. As soon as your start, select your stinger.
    2. Press R1 and shoot. Shoot him continuosly. When he moves a bit, follow his
    3. When he moves , keep track on him. This is the stinger cheat. It doesn't
    always work though.
    Try this if it doesn't work:
    1. Select the RGBG6 and use it first.
    Now continue using the grenade launcher as it's not that bad. Sometimes switch
    to the M4 when he gets out of reach, like on top and walks towards you.
    Dodge his knives and watch out for the orange spark which freezes your body.
    Don't fall in the water, otherwise instant gameover.
    Use the RGBG first, then switch to M4. It's the easiest way. When he throws his
    knives, shoot them and they'll just drop.
    Becareful though, there is an attack here he knocks you back, I almost fell in,
    I was hanging by the edge.
    Eventually he will fall.
    -Head north through the door and in the water
    *Turn right through the underwater door
    *Turn right again and turn LEFT the first chance you get
    *Swim up the stairs
    -Now go through the door and open the locker in the middle to find Emma (E.E).
    -Now you must guide emma back:
    *Go into the water
    *Turn right at your first turn
    *Turn right again and head up the stairs
    -Take emma to the Filter Chamber 2. After the scenes head across the room to
    the next water area.
    *Swim down, turn left, and then through the upper left depree, then get some
    *Swim across and then through the gap, then through the small hallway opening
    *Swim straight through the gaps, then through the door, get some air
    *Swim Straight through the door, turn left, then turn right
    *Turn left, go straight, then turn right and refill air.
    *Turn right all the way, ten at the end turn left and up the stairs.
    -Knock emma out and take her into the elevator. Go to the next level.
    -Tranq. the guard and carry out emma ......then tranq. the next guard in the
    gap. take her to the stairs and tranq. the guard. The final guard will appear
    near the exit, take care of him. Take emma outside.
    -Walk across the platform. Put out the fire useing the coolant at south point,
    then go through the door.
    -Head south without emma and take care of the two guards, take emma through the
    door at south where you'll head down the ladder.
    -You will now need to guide emma through...
    Equip the Therm goggles and sniper, take out the claymore mines and enemies as
    she goes along. This will take a short while. After this you will fight VAMP
    again who takes Emma hostage.
    This is too easy. Select the sniper, use O to zoom on him.
    Aim for his head, and after a few shots he'll fall into the ocean. Becareful
    not to shoot emma and she has less health and loses health gradually from vamp.
    -After this, head out and head straight to the computer room.
    You will automatically get into the elevator and go to the floor.
    -After the long cutscenes, you will be with solidus in a tortue chamber.
    Press TRIANGLE so you don't choke to death.
    -You are now naked go through the door and head out.
    -There are guards here so becareful. Head north while dogging the guards, then
    up the stairs on the left.
    -Take the platform to the right and you'll be on the other side, go through the
    -Walk up while listening to stupid calls until you get to one from Rose, your
    gear will be back from Snake shortly after.
    -Go with snake north and take care of the battle. Kill all eemies, when you
    reach the other side continue in.
    -There will be another scene, take care of ALL enemies and ignore silly false
    DEATH signs and stuff.
    -After the cutscene you will be up on arsenal gear.
    -After the long talk you will face Metal Gear Rays:
    Tactic: Shoot their legs, then quickly shoot their heads
    This battle could be long. The rays will continually come up and attack you.
    There will be three at a time.
    There will be ammo provided if you get low, as well as rations (one at a time).
    Don't stay near the Rays, they can cause heavy damage.
    If you try and attack from close, they'll either stomp you (the one in the
    center) or use the blue deadly laser.
    Watch out for the missles they launch, as they come down raiden flip in one
    straight direction.
    Always have your rations equipped as they can do multiple damage.
    As the machine gun comes, raiden flip OVER it to avoid and get a free shot into
    the Ray.
    When the blue missles come out, QUICKLY switch out of stinger view and raiden
    flip to make them miss.
    You will fight about 6 or 7 Metal gear Rays.
    When your rations stop coming from the center, this means they're almost out.
    The best way to deal damage to the center one is to Shoot it's leg, then
    quickly shoot it's head. Do this about 3 or 4 times and you'll kill it, this
    does mega damage.
    -After this there will be a scene, you must resist the chokeing from Solidus,
    this is much harder now.
    Tactic: Slice and Dice
    This is, the last boss.....against......DAD!
    This battle is pretty tough, yet you can manage through it. Use your HF. blade
    against him..well...it's the only weapon you have.
    His tentacles can be a problem at first......bu soon enough he'll lose them.
    Do not rush in and attack, strike and restreat.
    Stay out of his path, his Fire charge leaves you toast. The fire can be problem
    with him, as sometimes you must run aroun it to get a trike. When he does
    multiple Fire charges, then stand still and move slowly till it clears.
    Becareful not to fall off, just keep striking. Eventually he'll fall.

    This is not part of the walkthrough. However this was started earlier than the

    behind during the game.
    /\== TANKER ==/\
    Health Bar: 6/10
    Difficulty: Very Hard
    Tactic: Confuse her
    Olga is the only boss SolidSnake will face when you control him. She is not
    easy on Extreme mode, she is very hard. Your only weapon is the M9.
    The effective areas are ranked here:
    1. Head 5/5
    2. Chest 3/5
    3. Legs/arms 1/5
    Her attacks are:
    *USP handgun - Heavy damage caused if it connects to you. Extreme accuracy.
    *Grenades - Unlimited grenades, it's because of these most people actually beat
    I have played Olga a lot of times studying her moves, I have a complete guide
    on how to defeat her.
    Wait for Olga to approach the front, either behind the steel crate or the
    locker. Wait for her shoot three times, now when she reloads or takes cover,
    switch sides immediately and then carefully aim at her head to deliver maximum
    damage. This is the best way to get her.
    After the first strike, her talking will continue. She will repeat what she
    just did. Remember to roll over while running as this saves you from getting
    spotted by her.
    After 2 or 3 shots, she will shoot the strings of the giant blanket cover. This
    get's tricky. If you do not move around, she will toss grenades. Your Radar
    will be very useful if you have it as the grenade part is the only time to get
    Sometimes she will run around and head towards you and take cover somewhere.
    Switch sides and strike her quick, as sometimes she quickly looks at you and
    shoots you as you shoot her.
    After she's almost knocked out, the light turn on. This is biggest challenge of
    Olga. Being on EXTREME mode, you cannot shoot the light out. So after trying
    over and over again here's what to do:
    It's no use tring to strike her fom the far left as she kills you in two shots.
    So instead, hide behind the crates on the left side, look carefully on your
    radar. When it's yellow, watch it carefully. As soon as you here, YAR! and you
    see the yellow has become dark on the radar, run up on the left side of the
    locker but on the right side of the crate straight up to her as close as
    possible. Aim quickly, as she throws her foot comes out, shoot her chest or
    head if you are lucky very quickly. After that take quick cover.
    This is the procedure you need to follow in order to defeat her at this stage.
    Note: I designed that idea of hiding on the left of the locker because there is
    NO light, it is hidden.
    When her Life gets low she will start dragging her body heavily. This doesn't
    mean her shots will be any weaker. She is still as dangerous as ever. The main
    thing to look for is sometimes on the far left side, her shots get you even
    when you think you are safe. Always be sure you are hiding PERFECTLY.
    Don't go for the shot when she is running, as her sprays go widespread and do
    the same damage. It took me a while at first, but I had no rations. When I did
    end up beating her, my life hadn't lost anything anyway because I got too used
    to her. Don't get angry when she nails you, just keep trying.
    As in Metal Gear Solid 1, Stealth does not work on bosses. There is no use
    trying it on her. Keep trying and the job will get done.
    Upon defuseing the last C4 BOMB in the bottom of Strut A. You will have to face
    Fortune at the elevator entrance.
    The rankings on attacking her are:
    1.Head Shot 0/5
    2.Chest 0/5
    3.Legs/Arms 0/5
    Health Bar - 1/10
    Difficulty - Normal - Hard
    Tactic - Cartwheel is the key
    Fortune may seem easy on other difficulties, but she is pretty hard. The
    changes that occur in EXTREME mode is that firstly, her shots are way accurate
    and they always fire two times quickly.
    There are different items provided for protection against her big cannon. The
    bets thing to do is to firstly, run up to her and cartwheel from side to side.
    This will waist some time with her and will give you some extra hideing areas
    in the future when you get low on health.
    There is no use shooting at her with anything and no damage can be done from
    the gizmo she has. She will eventually shoot the bars at the top of the screen
    and they will fall down and sometimes tear apart trying to hit you.
    Stay away fm the barrels, if her gun explodes one run quickly as the damage is
    bad. There are two big metal crate packs. I suggest using the one on the right
    first. Firstly crouch, this will make her aim for the  bottom where it's
    weaker. Try to continue this as long as possible. Just remember, the protection
    you have needs to be used effectively, as I don't think I can get through her
    with protection available.
    Sometimes smoke will appear on the floor and fire will rise, stay away from
    there as you lose health occasionally from being burnt.
    She destroys the crates and protection easily as she shoots quick, and two volt
    charges at a time....this could be a problem. When you run out of protection,
    it's hard to tell when she'll shoot. So run from each side to side, not in a
    small area as her volts WILL get you. If you start to bleed i guess you're on a
    strict DEATH range then. When the elevator comes down, the round is about 60%
    Eventually you will recieve a call from Colonel and Fatman will be your next
    target, a Cutscene ends the battle. This isn't an easy battle, so a few tries
    are needed.
    After heading to the top of Strut E and defuseing the last bomb, you will fight
    Fatman, an explosive specialist.
    Firstly, the hit rankings are:
    1.Head 5/5
    2.Chest 0/5
    3.Legs/Arms 0/5
    Health Bar 8/10
    I cannot defeat Fatman without the wigs, I am still stuck on him without any
    rations being used, no people killed, and no wigs being used, he is HARD!!
    Anyway here's how to defeat.
    Firstly there are 3 bombs you must diffuse to start off with. YOu get 10
    seconds each bomb, and he has plenty more.
    Firstly equip the Coolant and diffuse the bombs that he originally plants
    A.S.A.P. After they are gone, you will have a bit of time to get him. You must
    look around where he is at. His machine gun can get very annoying as this time
    it never misses and it stops you.
    While there are no bombs active, use the SOCOM to bring him down. You don't
    have to shoot at a specific area, just shoot his body! You will here squishing
    sounds, and after about 7+ shots he will tumble.
    When he is dizzy quickly run up to him, using either M9. or SOCOM, lay a bullet
    into his head from the front. It takes about 10 of these to put him to death.
    He will get back to the bombs, it's way harder to get him twice like this as
    soon as he gets up as he usually strikes you or takes off too fast on his
    If you have Infinite Ammo Wig, use it for Socom and the battle will be a lot
    easier....however I can't do it without the wig.
    He plants about 5 bombs maximum. While you are diffusing the 2nd last or last
    he will start shooting you and GET YOU, this really pisses a lot of people off.
    I have no use for C4, but C4 mightbe useful for him. Claymore's aren't any use
    at all, as you'll find yourself running into one eventually if you plant too
    This battle is one of the harest of them all, but wait.....there's more!
    Eventually he will go down likea ton of bricks (he probably weighs that much
    with the suit anyway). After the cutscene drag his ody somewhere and diffuse
    the last bomb which is where he died (you can't miss it =)
    The harrier is met after destroying the control units for the Semtex.
    The range of attacks on it are:
    Head Shot: 5/5
    Wing Shot: 5/5
    Tail shot: Near impossible but 5/5
    Health: 10/10
    Difficult: Hard/Very Hard
    It's effective no matter where you shoot it. You're going to need a lot of
    stinger missles to take it down. Solidsnake will throw stinger missles
    sometimes for you to collect and use using the Stinger.
    By the way, the first thing to do in battle is grab the stinger. There is no
    use going downstairs and the Roof is a limtation for shooting so stay above.
    Sometimes the Harrier will fly out into the open way out, and then come zooming
    in why fireing it's machine gun at you which almost always gets you.
    Aim the Stinger at the position if flew in and when it comes in range fire a
    stinger missle so it misses you for recovery.
    Don't shoot Snake or Otacon as its useless, and it's get them a little angry at
    you >:|
    Also, be on the look out for it's Machine gun when it flies towards you. Look
    for the Target and shoot at it with the stinger, are fireing quickly run down
    stairs because the machine Gun in unblockable upstairs.
    At one point near it's end, Solidus will scream, DIE! and the Harrier will
    launch heaps of continuos missles at you. During this time you should run
    around heavily and the destruction is massive. I dont think I have gone through
    that attack without getting hit while staying above. So head down as the
    missles come closer and the pipe provided at the front will block them off,
    giving you extra hits.
    Just keep fireing and dodging away. The stinger has improved in Metal Gear
    Solid 2. It will always find it's target. So if the Harrier is moveing left
    fast, shoot at it and the stinger will track it once it slows down.
    The job will get done eventually. Even though the Harrier has lots of health,
    the Stinger missles provided should be enough to tackle the thing.
    Vamp is met after your first under water trip in the Filter Chamber.
    Prepare for a very fustrating battle if you don't follow the steps!
    The Range of attacks are done differenlty here:
    Stinger 5/5  (not a lot of damage but maximum)
    RGBGL 5/5
    Socom 2.5/5
    Aks 47u 2.5/5
    M4A1 2.5/5
    Health: 10/10
    Under water
    Stinger (just shoot the water) - He loses a VERY VERY TINY almost unseeable
    amount of health and a bit of Knock Out health. You cannot shoot more than once
    while he's under water with any exlosive.
    His attacks (basic):
    *Run around on the top ledges and throw single knives.
    *Spin on the pipes and throw knives at you (about 3 or 4 which is slow).
    As his health gets down......
    His attacks (advanced):
    *Run around on ground level (he is faster than you) and do a spining cut.
    *Spin very fast on the top ledge and throw knives as super speed.
    *Use his shadow orange knife to freeze you, then throw knoves (I have the
    complete solution to this!).
    *After shooting him at the north end he'll lean against the wall, then a few
    seconds later cut his way into the water. This will knock you in if youget in
    his way >:| !
    Ok now. After playing so many times against Vamp I finally got to know what his
    moves are.
    At first Vamp will be very easy to put to shame with your stinger. The best
    thing to do at first is to use your RGB grenade launcher to launch one shot at
    him (Don't waste stinger missles!)
    Now he will go into the water. As he swims, use First person mode to look into
    the water. Now equipd your M4A1 or Aks 47u and lock onto him. Now this requires
    timing, as his swims, continuosly lock onto him and start tp TAP the FIRE
    button. THis guarentees bullets will get him. If you just hold the FIRE button
    only the last few bullets will connect.
    Master the underwater tapping move. When he jumpes straight out of the water,
    keep watching in first person as he gets up. Now quickly shoot the stinger
    before he gets a chance to throw his knives at you and then Unequip it and RUN!
    You should be fudging his butt...until he only has 6/10 health left.
    Now Vamp will start to get ROUGHER.
    Vamp will now jump lamely out of the water giving you a free hit. He will more
    often head up the top and throw fast knives. You will be entering his Advanced
    Vamp will sart to use his Orange Knife which freezes your body.
    However, it can be washed out soon enough by following this COMPLTETE METHOD.
    As you are frozen keep watch on Vamp, do NOT let him get out of sight. He will
    do this about 3 times...
    Make sure you are standing, as he throws his knives of death, bop down so they
    fly straight past you.
    You should keep watching him and mastering this.
    Now when he is 2/10 health left...he will get NASTY  >:|
    This is the most fustrating area to EVERYONE. Even if you have 2 Rations
    left...h is still capable of wooping you as hard as possile!
    He will not go into the water until you get him now! :'|
    Still.....you have to keep track on him.
    he will use his ORANGE KNIFE every single time! This will get annoying. You
    should keep running. As soon as throws the knife and it misses, equip your
    stinger and BAM! him As Quickly As Possible!
    If he gets you with the Orange Shadow knife then you must follow strict rules.
    Always stand, when you hear a SILK-CUTTING sound he will be throwing his
    knives, so quickly BOP.
    Do not crouch too early otherwise he'll get you and the damage he does is
    really painful >:|
    This is a very bad part as many people lose here at this point if they do it
    wrong. Just make sure to him in the water whenever you can!
    The Machine guns are useless here, unless in water. Keeping tapping the fire
    button to get him while he is under water to cause some damage!!
    EVENTUALLY, and I do mean EVENTUALLY, while he's exploding you'll be all tires
    and out of fustration.....phew!
    BOSS 5: VAMP again
    Ok I won't go into detail here because he's just too easy!
    His health is about 3.5/10
    His attacks are chokeing emma...sound simple enough?
    Ok....thank god this is not an actual close encounter fight!
    Actually, you can take him out in a few seconds.
    Firstly use some Pentazamin and zoom using CIRCLE using the PSG1 nto him.
    Now just aim at him and tap the Fire button (SQUARE. This could be very easy if
    you just keep tapping! The damage caused will damage him more.
    No thanks to Snake, the battle will be over and Vamp's bullet to the head (your
    last shot :) will send him flying into the sea.
    If you like, tape this on video and put it on slow motion while you play some
    titanic music when the ship starts to sink.
    Extreme modes' Rays are just the ULTIMATE thing to battle!
    Health 10/10 x 15 to 20 RAYS
    Head damage 3/10
    Body 3/10
    Legs - Lowers defense - 0/10
    The key to this battle is to take out two at the beginning. I think this battle
    is one of the hardest ever.
    Ok so you now that their numbers aren't small.
    Firstly equip your Stinger and get a Pillow ready to punch it because you're in
    for quite some hits.
    The Rays take you out in two shots at full health. No more no less.
    AT first, leg shoot the first RAY straight infront of you. Then Head shoot him
    to do some kick-ass damage (You'd be so much better if you us this method as
    about 6 head shots equal one of these).
    The best thing to do after your first attack is aim for the left or right. Do
    NOT aim for both of them. If you get them both, then you'll have to deal more
    So once they are hit, they'll start to get angry.
    While you run around, keep leg shooting then head shooting the Rays.
    Only aim for the first ones you first targetted with. if you leave the one you
    didn't attack, he'll then just use one missile launch or something. If he
    starts to do it continuosly, give him a head shot, nothing else.
    Once the first two are taken out they'll start to move in. THis is where it
    gets serious. You have to keep your cool and follow the same strategy.
    When you keep attacking the one RAY that has jumped directly infront of you,
    keep uneqipping the Stinger and moveing to another location (not that far).
    if you see two missles launching at you from the RAY directly infront of yu,
    then TAP R2 and Raiden Flip and best as you can to make the Missiles Sway you.
    The heavy duty steps the Metal Gear Ray's cause are unbelieveable so do NOT get
    close to them.
    because it's on EXTREME, so is their behaviour.
    I seriously think that no-one will ever get this right the first time on
    EXTREME because it's just THAT HARD.
    The time is reallly annoying to because their are just SO MANY RAYS!
    This is a really fustrating time in Metal Gear Solid. As soon as you get to
    about 3 Stinger Missiles then grab more.
    Keep searching for the right spots to get the best direct hits.
    Don't travel mid-close either, that Blue Laser of theirs is really dangeous as
    The machine gun is not that much of a threat, but it still does EXTREME damage.
    Actually, because I spent like 30 continues on this, at the end, I had mastered
    the RAYS so much I didn't get hit, ONCE!
    If you don't believe me then pratice on Hard Mode, the same thing happened
    there with me. They just got so predictable yet still had to defeat.
    All I can say to finish this up is DON'T PUNCH THAT PILLOW TOO HARD, EVENTUALLY
    Ok here's what to do, you can fudge the explaining for Vamp!
    Firstly, Vamp is a supernatural freak. You should make sure that you understand
    what power he contains.
    [               ]
     \ - Items -    \
    *Thermal Goggles
    This is located at the top of the watch tower after defeating olga. Head up the
    stairs to your right, climb up the ladder and grab it. On the tanker, it is
    helpful for seeing which enemy has a dog tag and which hasn't much easier.
    This is located at the beginning of the Chapter (Plant). When you start, head
    right from the stairs (don't go up them) and then hand on the ledge infront of
    you. Shimmy right until you pass the fence and hop back over. The shaver is the
    white spinning object, impossible to miss.
    When you first meet Pliskin (Snake), you will see Raiden give it to him in
    return for the Cigarettes. While in Arsenal Gear, his beard will look all
    smooth and clean......and shaven.
    *M9 - Easy Mode + Very Easy Mode only
    On very Easy mode, the M9 is ontop of the crates in the upper right section of
    the first place you start off in In Easy mode, head through the vents near the
    steps, it is in the vents at a far back place.
    If you want to make life easier at the start of the game on normal, hard or
    extreme mode, head through the upper left door while in the STURT A pump
    facility instead of the west one. Dodge the cypher accordingly and once in
    STRUT F, head east (miss the guard patrolling the corridor) and enter through
    the Cardless needed door. The M9 is in this room along with ammo.
    *Soccom Suppressor
    This is found on the B1 floor of strut F. Head to the bottom (B1) once in Stut
    F and then south. Now head the rom on the left, there is a vent which is hidden
    by the box. Grab the box and go through the vey crawling till you reach the
    other side. Grab the items and climb up so you can exit the room (The soccom
    suppressor is there, along with ammo and a Mine Detector).
    *AKs 47u Silencer
    ON very Easy mode, this is located in the same Level two area with the Aks 47u.
    On every other mode, it is first seen after the Harrier battle up north. To get
    this with 99% guarentee, head north from where you start (not where the fire
    is) on the short catwalk. Now head left as far as possible but don't fall down.
    You should be infront of the edge handleds which aren't fully across the
    catwalk. Now since you are on the side with short running space, becareful. Run
    up and as you near the edge Raiden Flip, you will land on the edge (barely).
    This COULD take a few tries.
    Becareful not to fall once on the other side, on the left are some PSG1
    bullets. Head north and spray the fire using the coolant. On the other side is
    the Aks 47u Silencer. This doesn't make it complete silent, the soldiers will
    sometimes say," WHAT WAS THAT NOISE" or something like that.
    *PSG1 - T
    It's not REALLY an item but it deserves to be here. It's just a tranquing Psg1
    that doesnt shoot bullets of course.
    it hold 5 bullets so it's only useful if you dont want to kill anyone in the
    game to get a high ranking but rather put soldiers to sleep.
    While in your under water adventure in the DEBREE room in the south end of the
    map it's the second last air hole. There are stinger missles under it so it's
    not hard to miss.
    [               ]
     \ - FUTURE -   \
    - A BOSS section will be added especially for Extreme mode with full details.
    The section is half way complete.
    -When I collect all dog tags, all items recieved via
    I will make a list of them....
    [                     ]
     \  Charcter Summary  \
    =+=+ SolidSnake +=+=
    SolidSnake, a legendary hero of the Shadow Moses event. Supposedly the main
    character of the main, however the game can not be whole with his storyline
    only. Best friend is Otacon (Hal).
    He has the same DNA genetic code as Liquid Snake, until proven, was classified
    DEAD. Likes smokeing, and is an expert in battle.
    SolidSnake is around 32 - 35 years old. With his intelligence and actions, he
    shows age doesn't matter. As the story unfolds, he is just a clone. He was
    cloned from the Perfect Soldier, BIG BOSS. BIG BOSS was (or IS) about 70+ years
    This is why he was the ultimate soldier.
    Solidsnake appears in ALL Metal Gear's. His skills are far beyond an average
    soldier. When Metal Gear Solid 2 arrived, he didn't become the MAIN character,
    though playing a big part.
    His weapon handling skills are up to scratch. With his best friend, Hal
    Emmerich, the information he learns makes him a wise and noble soldier.
    =+=+ Otacon +=+=
    SolidSnake's ally. He is an expert in engineering. A helpful hand is always
    there for Snake. Not only providing strict Stealth for Snake, but helps in
    battle as well (Call him for tips). He gives details on your weapons/situation.
    Otacon is mainly known as a side-kick for SolidSnake. He's more a genius. When
    building Metal Gear REX, he got his first idea by a simple cartoon show. Robots
    and high tech military technology influenced him into all his work.
    Don't let the glasses fool you, he's the handyman of the game. He can pilot a
    helicopter and is highly experienced in the field of technology. He DOES have
    his limits.
    His Sister is Emma Emmerich. When she first comes into the project of Metal
    Gear RAY, which soon turns out to be a guardian for Arsenal gear, Otacon gets
    depressed after finding out about Emma and the project, as somehow their family
    has a DARK HISTORY.
    Otacon is always the survivor. He is reminded of Sniper Wolf and her death.
    Even though there was no footage of them together, they did have something for
    each other.
    =+=+ Olga Gurlokovich +=+=
    A member of a special Russian unit. After the sinking of the Tanker, she
    betrays her unit and joins a unit controlled by the Patriots. She carries a
    baby, the father is yet unknown and is being kept in Russia. If Raiden (jack)
    dies, a signal is sent by his Nanmomachines to the Patriots, and then it is
    She get's a point blank head shot from Solidus at the near end of the game,
    from a P-90 (looks like it). Though being a HIGH FAST RATE machine gun, she
    gets one bullet.
    She proves she will do anything to save her child. She gets her promise from
    SolidSnake that he WILL find the baby. Raiden is her message carrier. If Raiden
    goes, the baby goes.
    She has white hair similar to Raiden. After the Tanker raid, her feminine ide
    kicks in with her longer hair, and women touches.
    =+=+ Fortune +=+=
    'Lucky in battle and nothing else'. She is right about that. Nothing can hit
    her. She posesses a magnetic field gizmo which distracts incoming metallic
    items and sways them away. She doesn't know of this, and it causes horrible
    deaths in her life, everyone she loved died.
    =+=+ Vamp +=+=
    Vamp is not there for VAMPIRE, it is there for Bisexual. Rumoured that he had
    an attraction for Fortune's husband that died on the Tanker. He has
    supernatural abilities like running on water, and surviving through Super
    purified water pumped with enough Hyrdogen to make you get in the water and
    never come out. He has died once..(?) and can't die again he quotes. He is
    romanian, and a wizard of knives. He aquired his thirst for blood when he was a
    little boy. A church bombing occurred (could this be Stillman's church he
    failed to save) he was under the rubbles of the church with the dead bodies of
    his family membors. He had to quench his thirst, so he drank the blood of his
    family. The thirst never went away.
    =+=+ Raiden +=+=
    The hero of the PLANT chapter. His girlfriend, Rose, joins him on his mission.
    But late in the game she tells the truth about her job, she was sent to spy on
    him. EVERYTHING was fake. He was military trained as a young boy. Colonel is
    his Ally. However there is a BIG DARK SECRET. Read after this section to find
    out. His foster father is Solidus Snake. His codename RAIDEN is a Jet name, the
    name JACK was the password for the Jet plane.
    =+=+ Solidus Snake +=+=
    Previously George Sears. He was the president and then kicked off. He wants to
    annhilate THE PATRIOTS and take their position to have supreme power. He
    trained small children when they were young for battle. He has white hair, and
    tentacles made by the U.S ARMY (a suit).
    =+=+ Colonel - Rose +=+=
    He is the Ally of Raiden. He guides Raiden through his....so called 'Mission'.
    He is a BIG SPOILER SECRET altogether, so find out ALL about HIM in the Dark
    Secrets section.
    =+=+ Fatman +=+=
    The name is NOT a joke, although is may be. He is an expert in explosives. His
    trainer was Peter Stillman. He has a big Explosive suit that he wears, highly
    armoured, nothing gets through it. His head is the only thing shootable.
    =+=+ Peter Stillman +=+=
    Until now, he lived a lie of his life pretending his leg was blown from a
    church explosion. He couldn’t save them, he failed. Anyway he is a great help
    in diarming the secret bombs Fatman plants by the sensors he creates.
    He made his first and last appearance in Metal Gear Solid 2. Solidsnake knows
    him for the explosives part. Look up any explosives book and you'll find his
    name in it.
    He taught Fatman all his skills and things about bombs. After teaching Fatman
    too much, he ends up dead from a bomb that gets activated once all it's
    components are deactivated. Stillman did not teach Fatman this trick, and so
    this is how he was beaten.
    =+=+ Emma (E.E) +=+=
    She is the sister of Hal. As Raiden describes,"You're not only cute, but smart
    to". She is an expert in computers, and she has an anti body virus which helps
    destroy a harmful program called the GW or AI. She pretended to hate her
    brother. Read the DAKR SECRETS section in order to find out more, and why.
    =+=+ Ocelot (Shalashaska) +=+=
    Ocelot is back, with Liquid's arm. Talking about him will definately bring
    light into something. So more info lies ahead.
    =+=+ Ames +=+=
    He doesn't talk with Raidne much. Although he dies on the floor after saying
    Ocelot tricked him and lied, he does scare me a bit....Anyway, he bas brown
    hair that is tied at the back. Ocelot says something about him being a member
    of the La-Li-Lu-Lo-Le (i forgot how it went).
    Ames says ocelot will never escape them. Right now, there are theories the L5
    group are the patriots, however, nothing shows proof to confirm...sadly...
    =+=+ Mr.X +=+=
    Mr.X is Olga, I'll tell you now if you didn't know. I have a possible theory
    that she is related to grey Fox deeply. When she first calls herself Deepthroat
    and changes, Raiden asks why it would matter if she did, maybe it was because
    she didn't want to remember him because he is dead or something?
    Maybe a painful memory?
    Mr.X wears the same suit as the cyborg Ninja (Grey Fox) in Metal ger Solid 1
    and carries the same katana....so something is going on here.

    =============================== MAJOR SPOILERS ============================
    Ok now, there is a lot that goes on in Metal Gear Solid 2. I have sectioned
    them by the characters. If you haven't played the game, then finish it and
    understand first before you brainstorm here as it's better from the original.
    I made an original name for this section, so it's basically a secret storlyine
    - secrets revealed section. Read on.
    Colonel and Rose.....Raiden's creations?
    Here is how it goes:
    When Raiden was a small boy, he was taken into the S3, this is Solid Snake
    simulation. So VR TRAINING wasn't SolidSnake, it was Raiden. When Raiden was
    young, he was taken into military experiences. However his mind doesn't allow
    his memories to appear.
    Instead, he has bad nightmares every night of flashbacks from way back. He does
    not get it...why?
    Rose talks about one day, when she barged into his room without permission. And
    all she saw, was a dresing table and bed, no pictures, not ANYTHING. His life
    was dull. Until he realised the truth.
    From his experiences, his brain stored them, however memory never kicked in.
    When the patriots ordered to Wire him up with Nanmomachines, his mind, out of
    nothing, created 2 AI's. This ROSE does exist, except she is a spy that was
    sent to examine how Raiden is doing. But she says that falling in love wasn't
    part of the job, but Raiden doesn't take that kind of crap!
    Actually, the HINTS and stuff given to him by Rose and Colonel are actually
    already known by Raiden and stored in his brain, but he can't remember. So the
    Nanmomachines allowed him to create these and then send the messages back to
    him. Sounds confusing, but it's how it works.
    Rose's real features are still COMPLETELY kept on low profile. Her hair style
    was made to suit his style, her eyes to, aswell as the way she dressed, acted
    The reasons why the Colonel acts very strange at the end of the game (aswell as
    Rose) is because the AI was being infected by a virus which Emma created and
    installed. So all information was being scrambeled. Otacon says the message
    tracks always lead back to the actual Plant.
    So now you know, yet there's a LOT MORE.
    Liquid Snake, back...and he has a lot to say
    Liquid, back in the form of a HAND implanted into Ocelot. While takeing over
    ocelot he says a LOT of things, very helpful to. He clearly states that The
    only way to awaken from the arm was to be in the presence of Solid Snake,
    that's why Snake was brought to Arsenal Gear. He says that he is in the spy of
    the patriots. So OCELOT IS THE SPY OF THE PATRIOTS. Liquid finishes off by
    saying he is of to kill the patriots, and even though he doesn't know the way,
    since he is in ocelot......he knows NOW.
    Solidus thought he was in control, until Ocelot brings the information to him.
    It was all a big plan to awaken him.
    Metal Gear, not the creator, but the created
    You will learn, Metal Gear. Ok now, One Metal Gear is enough to launch a nuke,
    and cause a LOT of damage. Ohh but wait, there's more. Metal Gear Ray, an even
    NEW version of Metal Gear. But what's different this time?.....well...25 of
    A big black project called ARSENAL GEAR is the creator of Metal Gear. The
    actual thing can create almost anything. It is a Massive database for the
    Patriots to HIDE. So we know about this now, but there's more possibilities
    Arsenal Gear has the power to create anything. There is a possiblity in the
    Sequel that Arsenal Gear's creations might be one of your enemies. The PLANT
    was made to be destroyed to cover up Arsenal Gear. It was made to cover up
    Metal Gear.
    The Patriots....who are they?
    There are 12 Patriots altogether. I will give a basic summary of how much power
    they contain quoted:
    'They have the power to change history as we see it'.
    Basically, all information taken to the public was organized and discusssed by
    the Patriots. They have supreme power. Here's an example by Emma:
    'Take the alphabet for example, 26 letters right? There could've been 30'
    So the patriots could've said to the public there are 26 letters of the
    aplhabet, even if there are 30/ Even with scientists researching, information
    carried out is discussed by the 12 patriots. President Johnson wanted to become
    a Patriot so he became President. Becoming president is just like a pawn in a
    game of the Patriots.
    The script for the last part is coming in my New FAQ.
    Olga, more than just a soldier
    Olga is a mother, as most may know. The Father of the baby is unknown, by us,
    not by her. When she became pregnant, this made strict rules from her father,
    such as staying with her unit etc.
    The baby is somewhere in Russia. When she gave birth to her baby, it was in a
    hospital run by the patriots, she did not know of this. As soon as she gave
    birth, the next morning, the baby was gone, The patriots had it taken away. She
    has never held her baby in her arms.
    By using Raiden, the patriots had a plan. Since Raiden is wired with
    nanmomachines, when he dies, the machines send a signal to the patriots. This
    signal means he is dead. The patriots said that if he dies, the baby dies. THe
    patriots send her one picture a month of her child. Sadly, olga does not live
    to the end of the game so she never holds her baby....well...we can't proove
    she's dead...scenes of pictures never really mean anything when it comes to
    ALIVE and RETURN in Metal Gear Solid.
    Mr.X is Olga, I'll tell you now if you didn't know. I have a possible theory
    that she is related to grey Fox deeply. When she first calls herself Deepthroat
    and changes, Raiden asks why it would matter if she did, maybe it was because
    she didn't want to remember him  because he is dead or something?
    Maybe a pinaful memory?
    Mr.X wears the same suit as the cyborg Ninja (Grey Fox) in Metal ger Solid 1
    and carries the same katana.
    Olga is the NINJA to be more familiar. How she got the suit...we don't know.
    However, there is a possibility that Grey Fox was the father of her baby, even
    though he was hammered to bits and squashed by Metal Gear REX (for a quick
    memory part: FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOX!!!! - Solid Snake)
    We can't answer everything yet....we might never answer them all.
    Ames, he didn't say enough
    Ok if you've experienced Metal Gear Solid 1's Decoy octopus as the DARPA cheif
    with his foxide, this will speack out aloud.
    Ames had something secret to tell, but he never did. When Ocelot was about to
    kill him, he had some sort of Heart Attack, possibly Fox Die. We don't know
    yet, however I highly sense some BACKTRACK SCENES in the sequel reulting in a
    flashback of Ames dieing on the floor.
    He says," YOU....YOU LIED" or something to Ocelot. What is there that Ocelot
    was keeping? We don't even know if we know what it is.
    Possibilites sometimes become ideas, and sometimes facts. So time will tell.
    By the way, Ocelot says that Ames' nanmomachines were designed in the first
    place, to shut down his pacemaker, this is the virus that mimics FOXDIE.
    Raiden the carrier boy
    "Thanks to DarkL2030 for this"
    When the President is killed (is that the way you treat the guy that's
    controlling your country Ocelot!?) by Ocelot, Ocelot says something about
    Raiden, the carrier boy. This could mean different things......such as:
    *The nanmomachines in his body. This is a connection with Ocelot killing Olga,
    as it IS Ocelot. Raiden's nanmo's could be sending messages and body actions to
    the patriots of every single move he makes, and so the Patriots find out more
    about him.
    The Big Shell, it was going to go BOOM!
    for a reason
    I'll get straight to the point on this one. The Big Shell was supposedly set to
    be destroyed by Fatman (?, yes you'd think that to after fighting him).
    The Big Shell was created to be a BIG cover up for Arsenal Gear and it's
    development. When Big Shell Blew up, it would have destroyed all Arsenal gear
    evidence, so the big news would all be about the Big Shell.
    The facility is two giant hexagons joined end on end. There are STUTS that
    divide them into these small sections. And by 50% sections, it's SHELL 1 and
    SHELL 2.
    The word SHELL is there so it represents the protection against Arsenal Gear
    until development. The Big Shell is Arsenal Gear's first protective facility.
    When Arsenal becomes independent enough, but not completely, 25 Metal Gear Rays
    are issued to protect it.
    Since Arsenal Gear is not able to reproduce yet, Solidus doesn't want it.
    Instead he wants the 12 names of the Patriots.
    to me....but it also helps me explain more things simpler :)
