================================
02.(I)The History of Metal Gear:
================================
(1)1987 saw the the relaese of METAL GEAR on both the NES and MSX.It was
an instant hit due to its gameplay involving stealth and cunning traps
and puzzles.Seeming as it was on the NES it wasn't in 3D meaning each
part of the game was a small screen.Basically it had only one view that
was an overhedad view and included poor grammer like "I fell asleep" and
"The truck is coming".Instead of using a CODEC you used a
"Transmissioner" a kind of radio.But many items in this game originated
from METAL GEAR including cardboard boxes,cigarettes(in MG1 these were
good for you)pan lvl cards and BDU!In this


(2)1990 was the year that METAL GEAR:SNAKE'S REVENGE was relaesed.The
game was still 2D(Being in the NES and MSX)and quite the same
gameplay.More weapons were availible and the storyline changed with more
twists.

(3)METAL GEAR SOLID:TACTICAL ACTION ESPISPIONAGE was releasd in 1998 on
the PSX.The power of the playstation allowed the game to appear in
3D,allowing the player to see all around them by peeking past
corners,seeing enviroments through first-person view.Because discs were
now used more data could be stored including voice-acting,and longer
gaming experiences(as the game was in the two discs).All the various
characters were given detailed background stories which is the most
impressive group of characters.This game introduced the CODEC,a small
"radio" implanted into the brain of Snake in the form of nanomachine and
the VR missions.This also game introduced Hal Emmerich,Meryl,Mei
Ling,Natasha Romanenko and Colonel Roy Campbell.

(4)It was in 1999 that METAL GEAR SOLID:VR MISSIONS was released.This
was a game that contained about 300 VR missions.This game was basically
ehere you took the form of a FOX-HOUND soldier preparing for combat via
virtual relaity missions in which they appeared as Solid Snake or as the
Cyborg Ninja.Most the missions were VR training based on the Shadow
Moses.

=========================
(III)DIFFICULTY SETTINGS:
=========================
There are about five difficulty settings in this game and are selected
after pressing the "CIRCLE" button on "NEW GAME".At first only four are
accessible but later on the fifth  setting can be chosen.There are a few
differences that range from handicaps,strength and number of enemies and
item capacity.

Very Easy:
----------
Easy as using a keyboard.Maximun capacity of items and bullets,minimum
amount of patrolling guards.Also in the Raidan's chapter all maps will
be automatically downloaded to you.Also you have a big energy gauge.Also
if you are sighted by an enemy you will only have to exit that area/room
dissapear.

Easy:
-----
A bit harder than very easy.Also like earlier all maps in Raiden's
chapter will be automatically downloaded.As easy as  using a remote
conrol room.Also a item capacity that's smaller and some more enemies.

Normal:
-------
This is the suggested level that you try doing the game your first time
as doing anything lower than this level means you're a little sissy who
might as well not be playing this.You might as well play this level
because I'm going to be writing the walkthrough in normal difficulty
level.

Hard:
-----
Much harder than other difficulty levels as you have a smaller item
capacity,energy gauge.Not only that but you have the choice to get GAME
OVER when you are caught.

Extreme:
--------
God only knows why they put this into the game.You'll get this by
finishing the game once.You will die after a few shots,you have very
little energy and item capacity.Also you will get GAME OVER whenever you
get caught.

European/American Extreme:
--------------------------
This is the hardest difficulty level in the game as you will get GAME
OVER the second you get caught.Also you will be killed in one hit while
playing a boss.

============
(IV)Enemies:
============
RUSSSIAN SOLDIERS:
They are the soldiers patrolling the Big Shell especially all twelve
struts of the Big Shell.They work for Olga Gurluckovich who inteands on
finding Solid Snake and claiming part of the ransom demand.They hold the
various DOG TAGS across the game.

GENOME SOLDIERS:
These are genitically engineered soldiers created by the Patriots in
isolated labs in America.They patrol only a few parts of the Big Shell
which include Shell Cores 1 & 2 and the Tanker.They work for Ocelot and
Dead Cell.They also hold DOG TAGS.

REINFORCEMENT "CLEANER" GUARDS:
These are called to rooms when you are spotted by an enemy or
surveillance cameras.They are armed with shotguns and have glass shields
in order to protect themselves from you.Unlike the Russian and genome
soldiers they don't hold DOG TAGS.

ARSENAL GEAR SOLDIERS:
These are much more bulkier and powerful variations of the genome
soldiers as they have been fitted by new army gear.They are found only
in Arsenal Gear and like the Reinforcement guards they don't hold DOG
TAGS.

CYPHERS:
They're are two types of Cyphers in this game.One is the Army-AT Cypher
a white floating surveillance camera,while the Marines-R9 is akin to the
Sniper Cameras as it is a floating surveillance camera equipped with a
rifle.

SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS:
They're are two types of cameras.Though rare up to Hard they will move
left and right looking for intruders.Normal cameras will set off an
alarm the second you are seen.Sniper cameras have rifles attached to
them abd attack while setting off an alarm.

INSECTS:
These don't do much but crawl around the ground.They wont harm you but
will attempt to eat your RATION packages if you hang around you and will
also scare women....

===========
03.Weapons:
===========
There are seven classes of weapons in this game for use as Snake and
Raiden during their attack on the new Metal Gear.Each of the weapons are
different and have different characteristics.Talk to either
Otacon,Colonel Campbell or Pliskin with them equipped.
  (I).Handguns        (V).Rockets
 (II).Machine Guns   (VI).Special
(III).Rifles        (VII).Grenades
 (IV).Explosives

--------------
3(I).Handguns:
--------------
BERETTA M92F:
Although it may be a quiet and efficient weapon it won't exactly kill
your enemies,but instead put them to asleep as it uses tranquillizers
instead of normal bullets.It's light and has a silencer attached to
it.This makes it an ideal weapon for getting DOG TAGS.Despite this it
can't penetrate the thick armour of Cyphers,control switches etc.

USP:
A powerful handgun that can kill a Genome Soldier in about 4 or 5
shots.Later on you will be able to acquire a suprressor in order to fire
the weapon and lessen your chances in getting caught.It uses laser
sighting and torch attached to it for accurate shots.A supressor can be
found on the Navigational Deck of the Tanker on Easy and Very Easy.

SOCOM:
Found after you meet Pliskin in the Transformer Room of Strut B this is
one of the most powrful pistols in the game.A surpressor can be found in
the Strut F of Shell 1.

-----------------
(II)Machine Guns:
-----------------
AK-74u:
This Assault Rifle is the most powerful weapon in the game.Instead of
letting you use a laser to aim it'll automatically fire when you hold
the fire.A supressor can be found one the Shell 1&2 Connecting Bridge.

M4:
Like the AK-74u it wil automatically fire when you hold the fire
button.It is shaped like an M-16 and is also quite powerful yet no
supressor can be found.

-----------
(III)Rifle:
-----------
PSG-1:
This useful item can be used to exacute assainations on seagulls or take
out control units hidden from view.In order to use this you need to use
PENTAZAMIN.

PSG-1T:
The exact same as the PSG-1 other than it uses only tranquiliser darts
in order to knock out guards and seagulls.

---------------
(IV)Explosives:
---------------
C4:
These plastic explosives are very powerful weapon used by Fatman.Place
the explosive on the ground and press the SQUARE button to set it off.

CLAYMORE:
These mines destroy anything in their path with a spray
of shrapnel. These mines use new technology to see if a person is
near.Use the SQUARE button to plant a mine on the ground and crawl over
them to get them.

-----------
(V)Rockets:
-----------
STINGER:
This is the coolest weapon in the whole game.When equipped you be able
to see the weak points of an enemy.They appear as grey boxes and you'll
be able to lock onto the target and become red when locked on.

NIKITA:
A large rocket launcher with a twist.Attached to the front of the
missile is a camera which is linked up to the launcher.With this feature
you can move the missile to wherever you want to get your target.While
you have this missile out it will speed up but will slow down when you
move left or right.

------------
(VI)Special:
------------
COOLENT SPRAY:
This isn't exactly a weapon but is a useful item that is versatile in
that it can help do many things:
1.Freeze plastic explosives eg.C4,semtex
2.Put out fires in order to pass them
3.Move any annoying bugs or insects on the ground.
4.Stimulating sleepy guards.

HIGH FREQUENCY BLADE:
This is the Cyborg Ninja's weapon that will be obtained near the end in
Arsenal Gear.Use the left analog stick in order to spin it around and
the right analog stick in order to move and direct the blade.Also an
other important note there are two modes that can be chosen using the
SQUARE buton:
RED - Kill:This will focus on killing the enemy or boss
BLUE - Knock out:This will concentrate on knocking out your opponant.

--------------
(VII)Grenades:
--------------
GRENADE:
When the grenade is thrown on the ground it releases an
explosion,injuring if not not killing anyone in the surrounding "impact
zone"

STUN GRENADE:
This weapon is useful when you are being chased by a large group of
guards.When used an small explosion will occur around the "impact zone"
and a flash of light will knock all surrounding guards out.

RGB89:
This is the greanade found in the Strut F Warehouse of Shell 1.When
fired a grenade will be shot into the air and will explode the second it
hits something.Best used for some of the bosses and when you are
surrounded by enemies.

CHAFF GRENADE:
This is a useful weapon that creates a temporary EMP(Electro magnetic
pulse)field that starts jamming all electrical devices including
surveillance cameras,cyphers,soldier radios and unfortunately your
radar.

=========
04.Items:
=========
During the game you will encounter many items to help you along your
way.Like the weapons they are divided into different classes.

  (I)Health   (IV)Goggles
 (II)Sensors   (V)Computers
(III)Special

----------
(I)Health:
----------
RATIONS:
Found all over the tanker and power plant.These are small packages of
food that will help you regain energy.The appear as small hexagon
shaped,brown boxes.In the item menu press O to recover lost life.

BANDAGES:
Can be found around each level in small boxes and are very useful if
your out of Rations.When you've been shot over and over again you will
start to bleed which not only drain your life away but also will make
guards follow you more easily.

MEDICINE:
This has absolutely no effect on your life bar but will help you get rid
of unwanted colds which can happen during long times of exposure to cold
conditions.A very rare item.

ARMOUR:
This is a very rare item in the game and is best saved for dire
situations.In most modes eg.Normal there is usually just one in the game
and is best kept for the fight against Solidus.It will take some damage
until finally wearing away.

PENTAZAMIN:
This is found around the plant and is needed to help you keep still
while using the two sniper rifles.As it is an anti-depressent like
valium taking too much will cause some side-effects.

------------
(II)Sensors:
------------
SENSOR A:
This is used to find the C4 packages located across Shell 1 of the
Plant.When it is activated the packages will appear as large yellow
areas on your radar.It works by detecting the ions and cologne released
by the bombs.

SENSOR B:
This is also used again to find C4 packages in the 1st Shell of the
plant.But it only is used to find Fatman's last bomb in Strut A.Instead
of appearing on your radar it will start to make sounds when you are
near it.

AP SENSOR:
This is in both Snake's and Raiden's inventory.Whenever you have alerted
an enemy and your radar disappears you can activate this and it will
make sounds in order for you to find out where an enemy is.

MINE DETECTOR:
Found in the plant and is used to get into the Shell 1 Core.When
activated it will cause hidden mines on the ground to be visible on your
radar as small yellow triangles.

-------------
(III)Special:
-------------
B.D.U:
This is the uniform of Dead Cell soldiers.It is the perfect disguise and
camoflauge and is needed to get into the Shell 1 Core and is given to
you by "Mr.X" and will get you to Ames.After finding Ames you will lose
the face mask and then the uniform itself.

CARDBOARD BOXES:
These silly items are found in various areas in both levels.There are
about five of them.When inside them you can hide from enemies but only
if you are not in the guards way.If you are in their way they will find
you.Also in [Strut E] of the Plant look for a crate next to the conveyer
belt belt.Go onto the crate and walk onto the belt in a box.Each box
will bring to a different place.
BOX 1:Strut C
BOX 2:Strut B
BOX 3:Strut A
BOX 4:Strut F
BOX 5:Hidden room in Strut E

STEALTH:
This is obtained by collecting a certain amount of dog-tags in both the
plant and tanker chapters.When activated you will be invisible from all
enemies,surveilance systems but not any of the bosses.But with this you
can still have some fun especially with guards and both C4 and Claymore
mines.

BANDANA:
This is again gained by receiving a certain amount of dog tags but only
in the tank chapter.When activated Snake will be able to have unlimited
ammo for all of his weapons.

WIGS:
There are three wigs in this game that can be obtained for Raiden when
you collect a certain amount of dog tags.The Brown wig will give Raiden
infinite ammo while the Orange wig will give you an infinite grip
gauge.And finally the Blue wig will give you an infinite oxygen gauge.

BOOK:
I really don't know why they didn't take the small risk of callling this
a Porn magazine which is exactly what it is.Unfortunatly you can't look
at it youself.When used it is thrown onto the ground and will be picked
up by a guard who will get so engrossed in the "literature" that he
won't know that you've just passed him out.

CELLPHONE:
Given to you by "Mr.X" this is a worthless item."Mr.X" will call you
some times to tell you how to put out fires and move bugs with the
coolant spray.When he calls you will feel the phone vibrating and
"Beep,Beep" sound.When activated you will receive a free text message
courtesy of Eircom!!

CIGARETTES:
If the government thought they had finally banned the advertising of
cigarettes on television then I guess they have failed.In both Raidens
and Snakes inventory they can be used to locate IR sensors hooked up to
Semtex.But they slowly deplete your health while being used.

DIRECTIONAL MICROPHONE:
This is found in the Shell 1 Core,on floor B2.You need this to find
Ames.Using this you will have to hear his heartbeat to distinguish him
from the other hostages.This can also be used to listen in on
conversations.

DOG TAGS:
Collecting these with activate the various cheats.In order to get them
you must aim your gun at the back of a guards head.He will then drop it
for you to collect.

SHAVER:
A secret item that has virtually no use but to add about two more lines
to a cut-scene between Raiden and Pliskin.Can be found in the Strut A
Deep Sea Dock of the Plant.This is found only on Hard and Extreme.

------------
(IV)Goggles:
------------
THERMAL GOGGLES:
This item turns the surrounding area red and will outline both enemies
and IR sensors in red.

SCOPE:
A set of state of the art binoculars which can be a lot of help in
locating hidden control switches connected to Semtex.Also good if you
need to locate an enemy.

DIGITAL CAMERA:
This useful item can take pictures that can be saved onto your memory
card.Sometimes if you take pictures of certain places the ghostly
spectres of the games producers will appear on the picture.Also if take
a picture of a soldier and his/her name comes up in blue then that means
that you have already collected his/her dog tag.

NIGHT VISION GOGGLES:
As the name suggests it will help you see in the dark and will outline
all enemies in green and as a result the surrounding area will be green.

CAMERA:
Used by Snake in the Tanker chapter in order to take pictures of Metal
Gear RAY.You can download them to Otacon with the computer in Hold no.1
next to the machine itself.Can also be obtained by Raiden in Strut E.

(V)Computers:
-------------
LEVEL PAN CARD:
These are small,clear keycards that are needed to enter specific
doors.First after meeting Stillman you receive the level 1 card.Later on
you will receive higher level cards until you receive the lvl.5 card.

MO DISK:
You will get this from the President after meeting with him in the Shell
2 Core.This is what you need to give to Emma Emmerich who has been taken
hostage.It contains a computer virus akin to FOXDIE as it is only suited
to specific computer programmes.

==================
05.Basics and Tips:
==================
--------------------
Collecting DOG TAGS:
--------------------
In order to activate all the cheats you will have to collect these
hidden items.All of the guards have these and you will have to be
skilled to collect them.To get them hold up a guard and walk in front of
him with your weapon equipped.Then aim at either their crotch or head to
get them to surrender it.Although you will be able to get most of them
to give their tags away while holding them up with a M9,some will get
tough and taunt you to shoot them.If they do,tranquillise them and come
back to them with the USP or SOCOM.When you have these weapons and you
have them held up,shoot them in the leg and they will become
chickens!But for more fun and items get out the RGB86 and STINGERS and
point it towards them(But don't fire anything).Remember you will have to
get all the DOG TAGS in each chapter on each difficulty.


======================
06.Walkthrough-Tanker:
======================
CUT-SCENE:
We start our story on the George Washington Bridge in New York.As the
rain falls on a typically cloudy night a lone cloaked figure walks
beside the traffic and soon later he bungees off the bridge in
stealth.Just then he lands on a large Tanker and then we see his true
identity-Solid Snake.After receiving his mission briefing from Otacon he
spots a chopper flying past and takes a photo of Colonel Gurlukovich an
infamous Russian militia leader.After a while your mission as Solid
Snake begins.Otacon has recently received information about a new type
of Metal Gear.

               -------------------------------
               PART 1:INFILTRATING THE TANKER:
               -------------------------------
(1)When you begin the game you will find yourself at the starboard of
the tanker.Now head left while keeping yourself at the edge of the
ship.When you get to the first set of stairs pick up the BANDAGE
under and keep continuing to your left and steal the soldier's DOG
TAG.Then go past the next set of stairs,keeping to your left to find
a RATION package.Then go back to the stairs and go up it.Continue on
and steal the tag from the next soldier.Go across this alcove and
steal another DOG TAG.Go down the stairs an look for a box containing
PENTAZAMIN near the life boats.Then go up another set of stairs to
find some CHAFF GRENADES behind a box(Use the TRIANGLE button to get
over this).Go back to the stairs at the left and walk in front of the
door.Otacon will then contact telling how to open it.Press the
TRIANGLE button until it opens.

(2)When inside the tanker follow down the corridor and when you get to
two sets of doors go inside them.When inside look for a RATION in
locker nearest to the door in the far-left aisle.Open the one next to
it to find a picture of a woman.Bring out your CAMERA and take a
picture of her(Just for fun).Go collect the M9 bullets in the next
few lockers.Now get out of this room and continue along the corridor
to get into the Lounge.Go inside and knock out the guards.Go up the
stairs and into the door on the right.Now go up the corridor and
knock out the guard.Follow across to the left until you find a
stairs.Go up it.

(3)In the next area you will see a surveilance camera.Lean onto the wall
and slowly move across.Once past it continue on past the stairs and look
for a fire extinguisher.Opposite this is a gap in the wall.Climb into
this to get a RATION.Go back to the stairs and go up it.In this room you
are to go through the room to you left to the kitchen.Then get through
to the next area an go up the stairs.After a small cut-scene go outside
into the rain for your first battle.

                         BOSS #1:OLGA GURLUKOVICH:
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
WEAPONS: USP Handgun and grenades.
STRATEGY:
Straight away when the fight starts go to the far right of all the
wooden boxes and shoot the light behind Olga(Do it because it will help
you).Avoid Olga's bullets and hide behind the wooden boxes.Get up from
time to time and shoot her when she moves away from her hiding
place.After a while she will rip up part of the green tarpaulin.When she
does this it will become harder to see her,so look for a small brown
strap connecting the tarpaulin to the ground shoot it and continue on
attacking her.If you can't shoot the brown strap use your radar to kill
her.Remember whenever she says "TAKE THIS" watch out as she will throw a
GRENADE at you.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

(4)When she is dead you can take a picture of her "crotch" and shoot her
there just for fun.Then shake a DOG TAG out of her and jump down from
the ledge and head to the opposite side of the ship.Go up the first set
of stairs and up the ladder and collect the THERMAL GOGGLES.Go back down
the ladder and continue on.A soldier will come out and when he does
follow him and steal his DOG TAG.Pick up the WET CARDBOARD BOX.and go
back inside the Navigational Deck E.

(5)When inside go downstairs.Steal the DOG TAG from the soldier inside
the kitchen now that you have the USP.Go to the Semtex trap and shoot
the small control panel beside the fire extinguisher(It has a green
light).Go into the room past the Semtex trap.This is the Storage
Room.pick up the CARDBOARD BOX.Crawl under the shelves containing melons
and flour.When you do that a guard comes in and falls asleep next to
you.Get up and wait for him to wake up(remember he walks to his
right.After stealing his tag go back into the main room of this deck and
go down the stairs.Now go back into the Lounge and go down the stairs to
the left and steal the soliders DOG TAG.Go back into the lounge and go
down the stairs on the right.Go through the door to find yourself in the
Engine Room.

(6)In here you will find a small statue of Vulcan Raven from MGS1.Jump
onto the nearby steel box to ammo for your USP.Go into the next room and
knock out all the guards in the next.When you find yourself next to the
door at the end of the room go through the door.When in here a guard
will come inside so kill him.When thats done jump onto the small ledge
with USP ammo.Then get down and walk towards the door to get a call from
Otacon.

(7)It seems that there is another Semtex trap.Take out your USP and
shoot the white sack on the ground next to the door in order to see the
IR sensors.There are three control units to destroy so you can
continue on.

01-Get back onto the ledge where the USP ammo was and hold L2+R2 and
shoot the control panel that glows green on a high ledge beside the
sensors(Remember shooting the Semtex will kill you).

02-Get down and move towards the door without touching the IR
sensors.Then shoot the next control panels to your right,again beside
some Semtex.

03-When that is done shoot the next panel to the left of the
door.Go inside the door to continue on.

              ------------------------------
              PART 2:FINDING METAL GEAR RAY:
              ------------------------------
(1)When inside you will find yourself in a long corridor.Go forward and
and get the RATION to the left.Continue on and get the USP ammo to the
left again.Follow the corridor and knock out the three guards.In the
next corridor a cut-scene will follow showing a few soldiers chasing
Snake.Then you will have to kill about ten of them and remember there
are RATION packages and some USP ammo.When they are dead Snake will get
into the Hold No.1,where Colonel Scott Dolph of the Marines Corps is
giving a lecture.

(2)First go down the set of ladders and head towards the left side of
the room and when you reach the projecter crael past it.Then crawl
your way to the top of the room maxing sure you don't get caught and
enter the Hold R2.

(3)In here crawl past the two projecters and then go to the right of the
room and crawl to the top to get to some boxes.Go around them and enter
the Hold R3.

(4)In here you have to get some pictures.First take a picture of the
front of the machine and then take a picture of the front at both
left and right angles. Finally go to the back of Metal Gear and take
a photo of the Marines Corp logo.Then press the TRIANGLE in front of
the small computer to send your pictures to Otacon.

CUT-SCENE:
The Colonel ends his speech and soon enough Revolver Ocelot enters the
room joined with Gurlukovich.After a lengthy scene Gurlukovich is killed
along with Scott Dolph.Then Snake approaches Ocelot and we are "re-
introduced" with Liquid Snake.Ocelot leaves the ship in Metal Gear RAY
leaving Snake behind in the water.


=====================
07.Walkthrough-Plant:
=====================
CUT-SCENE:
As a chopper flies over the Verozano Bridge in New York we are reminded
of the Tanker incident two years earlier.Now a terrorist organisation
,called Dead Cell has held the President of the USA captive on a
cleaning plant where the Tanker sank.They have declared a ransom demand
of about $30,000,000,000(Thirty billion dollars).If the plant blows
up,the remaining oil will set alight and the coastlines environment will
be destroyed by harmful chlorides and dioxins.Now we enter the role of
Raiden

              ----------------------------
              PART 1:INFILTRATING SHELL 1:
              ----------------------------
(1)First jump into the water and look for the THERMAL GOGGLES.Press
CIRCLE to swim.Get out of the water via the ladder and crawl into a
small gap near some bugs.Move to the right to get a RATION.Go back
the way you came and up the stairs and open the lockers for another
RATION.Open the door and follow the passage.

(2)When in the large room look for a computer.This is a node.Press the
action button next to it and fill in your details.Then when the enemies
wake up quickly choke them and the wait for the elevator to come
down.When it does,go up it.When up here on the roof go to the top-left
of this area and crawl under the crawlspace in the wire mesh.Go inside
and down the stairs.You can see the node but it's
guarded get yourself alinged to the wall and punch it to distract the
guard.Activate the node to get your radar working.

(3)Now go into the door at the top-right and when on the [A-F Bridge] go
down the first set of stairs and collect the CHAFF GRENADES(unlike
the Tanker chapter you want to conserve these)Continue along on the
bottom floor and go up the stairs and into [Strut F].Go forward and
collect the RATION beside a door and go into the room to get the
M9.

(4)Now continue into the room and drop onto the bottom floor.Get to the
bottom of this room and you'll find yourself at two doors.Go into the
one on the left and activate the node.Then look for an aaie-vent and go
into it.You then find yourself next a the SOCOM SUPRESSOR in another
room.Pick it up and go back the way you came.

(5)Return to [Strut A] and go into the top left door to the[A-B
Bridge].Pass the guards and when inside [Strut B] a cut-scene will
follow.

CUT-SCENE:
As Raiden enters Strut B the walls are drenched in blood as the remains
of Team Alpha,while their bodies lie on the floor.Suddenly Raiden spots
the remaining members being attacked by Vamp.They are eventually
killed.soon later a lone gunman is about to slayed until Raiden
interveans.Vamp dissapears leving Raiden and "Pliskin" alone to
talk.After a while Pliskin notices that a dead naval officers handcuff
is missing.Then Raiden is given the SOCOM.

Continue on to the [B-C Bridge]or go back to get DOG TAGS.When on the
bridge another cut-scene will start.

CUT-SCENE:
Several members of Team Bravo will be fighting against both Fortune and
Vamp as the kidnap the President.Vamp then takes in his hand a black
case...

(7)Go across the bridge,collecting the CHAFF GRENADES.When iside Strut

here so you'll have to wait.

CUT-SCENE:
Raiden enters the kitchen to meet both Stillman and Pliskin.Here he
learns about Fatman and how to disarm several bombs located in each
Strut.He is given SENSOR A ,the COOLANT SPRAY and a LVL.1 PAN CARD

(8)Now you have to defuse all the bombs in Shell 1.First activate the
node and go back to [Strut A].

              --------------------------
              PART 2:BOMB DISPOSAL UNIT:
              --------------------------
01-When in Strut A go into the lvl.1 door and go to the small steps
   nearest to the surveillance camera.When across it crawl under the
   pipe to your right,get up and get on the small crate to get the
   CARDBOARD BOX.Go to the other set of steps and crawl under the
   pipe in front of you and then the one to your left.When you get to
   a brown/red pipe,follow down its path to find the bomb.Get the
   BANDAGES  next to the pipe and go on to [[Strut B].

02-In here look for a fuse box inside the room where you met Pliskin
   (Also where the node is).It's the one that's open and is beside
   the door.Close it to find the bomb.Move on to [Strut C].

03-When you enter here go into the womens bathroom(The bathroom on
   the right).Go up to the mirrors and look at the top of the right
   one.You can see the bombs reflection so freeze it.Now onto [Strut
   D].

04-When you enter the room simply go down the stairs and continue on
   until you get to the stairs.Go down them and walk back to where
   the door is open the small press on the ground.Look for the node
   at one of the entrances to [D-E Bridge].Now onto [Strut D].

05-Now inside [Strut E].When inside activate the node in the top-
   right corner collect the CARDBOARD BOX on the way to the stairs on
   the right.Go up the stairs and another set of them.When on the
   Helipad go to the back of the Harrier 2 and crawl under the wing
   and freeze the bomb.Go back into the parcel room and go to the
   back.Look for a small  crate next top the conveyar belt and use
   the BOX#5 and get onto it.It will transport you to a room with the
   DIGITAL CAMERA.Get onto the conveyar belt and return to [Strut
   E].Then go to the right side of the room and walk down the stairs
   to collect the MINE DETECTOR.Now go to the right of the room and
   go up the stairs.Go up another set of stairs and freeze the bomb
   under the Harrier 2 Jet.Now go back downstairs to the Parcel Room

06-Now go follow the corridors(forget the stairs).You see that big
   square on the floor? Hang onto the left side and drop onto the
   crates on the left side of the room.Freeze the bomb and presto!!
   You'll now receive a call from Stillman.

              ------------------------
              PART 3:FATMAN'S REVENGE:
              ------------------------
(1)Stillman says that he found a large bomb in Sheel 2 and that they're
maybe another one in Shell 1.He now wants you to go to the pantry in
[Strut C] to find SENSOR B for this new type of bomb.Go out to the
pantry in the kitchen via the conveyer belt in [Strut E] and collect it.

CODEC MOMENT:
Now Stillman contacts you to warn that the new bomb will go off when all
the C4 explosives are frozen(Just in time for Pliskin to announce he's
frozen all the ones in Shell 2.Stillman becomes scared as the countdown
starts on both bombs.The bomb is located in the Deep Sea Dock,[Strut
A](This is where you started this chapter).

(2)Now you have about six minutes and forty seconds to find it.Get out
of here and head straight to [Strut A].Get to the roof and onto the
elevator(when you walk around the back of it Stillman will contact
you).When down there walk to the dock(where the pool is)and go down the
stairs.Look at the submarine because that's where the bomb is.Walk to
the right of the ladder and hang off the edge of handle bar and move to
the right.Get up and up the set of starirs next to the diving suits.Walk
to near the edge(but not to the very edge of you'll dive into the
water).From here you can freeze the bomb.

(3)Now go back to the room with the node,to find an unwanted visitor
come down the elevator.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
                     BOSS #2:FORTUNE
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
WEAPONS:Photon Rail Cannon
STRATEGY:
Now here is a different type of boss fight.Instead of trying to kill her
all you have to do is avoid the bullets of her cannon until Vamp comes
down in the elevator.She will constantly fire at objects around the room
and remember one shot from will kill you(depending on the difficulty
level you selected).Stay away from the barrels of oil,as they will
ignite.Watch out also for falling debris from the ceiling.During your
fight against Fortune,Colonel Campbell will contact you via codec to
tell you that Fatman has left a huge bomb on top of the Heliport at
Strut E.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------

(4)Now get to Strut E straight away.You will have about eight minutes
and twenty seconds to get to the bomb.Go up to the Helipad and defuse
the bomb.Out of the shadows of appears Fatman.It seems strange as he
knew nothing about the ransom demand.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
                     BOSS #3:FATMAN:
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
WEAPONS:C4 explosives,SOCOM pistol
STRATEGY:
Because Fatman is on rollerblades he is quite fast for his size.Keep you
SENSOR A equipped at all times.First he'll start planting bombs so
quickly freeze them.After a while he'll stop he does get near him and
use STUN GRENADES to put him on the ground so shoot him in the head as
much as you can.It's best to move while aiming used on claiming DOG TAGS
as this will automatically lock onto him.Keep shooting his suit to get
him on the ground.After a while this recess will be over.Now start
freezing bombs again and if he stops right beside you shoot him in the
head.Repeat this until he dies.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------

(5)Fatman now dies after planting one more big bomb.Grab him and pull
him away and freeze the bomb that was underneath him.Now go down the
steps to meet the Cyborg Ninja aka Mr.X!

CUT-SCENE:
Mr.X gives you the location of Ames saying that he is in the Shell Core
of Shell 1.He also tells you that Ames has a pacemaker and to get the
DIRECTIONAL MICROPHONE to locate him.He then gives you the B.D.U. and a
CELLPHONE plus the LVL.2 PAN CARD.Now you must find the AK-74 in order
to get to Ames.Raiden soon learn that the Big Shell is not a cleanup
facility,but is the storeroom for a large nuclear bomb and that both the
black case taken by Vamp and Fortune on the bridge earlier is the key to
activate it along with the missing handcuff Pliskin noticed in Strut B.

              ---------------------------
              PART 4:THE SEARCH FOR AMES:
              ---------------------------
(1)Go straight to Strut F and then go into the area below with all the
crates.Go into the lvl.2 door and get the AK.Now Get to the EF Bridge
and use the MINE DETECTOR to get to the small bridge in  order to enter
the Shell Core.When inside equip the B.D.U. and AK.Go to the
bottom of the corridor and go into the  nearby door and activate the
node opposite the lockers.Now get out of here and head towards the
elevator near the top.

(2)Go to Level B2 and go through either of the doors continue on down
the corridor.At the bottom of the room enter the computer room and
pick up the DIRECTIONAL MICROPHONE in the top left corner.Go to
the right and pick up the CARDBOARD BOX.Activate the nearby node(as you
will be coming back here in a while).Now head to the elevator and up to
Level B1.

(3)When you are here go into the room to your right and activate the
node.Go back outside and wait for a guard to come near the
elevator.Grab him and pull him towards door down the corridor.Move
him to the eye-scan beside the door and you will enter the room.When
inside you will have to look for Ames.He is a Caucasian male with a
bald head and brown sideburns.He also is by himself lying on the side
of a table at the bottom of the room.

(5)Take out the microphone(It is in your weapon select screen)and aim it
at him and press TRIANLGE(Make sure there isn't any guards
around).Another clue is you can hear the beeping of his pacemaker.

CODEC MOMENTS & CUT-SCENES:
During this conversation Raiden learns a shocking secret!President
Johnstone is working with Revolver Ocelot!!It seem that Revolver
alongside Soliduse are planning to fire the nuclear bomb above Manhattan
which will relaese a fifty billion watt surge of electricity.This is the
EMMA effect as all electrical appliances will be fried leaving Soliduse
and his gang called the "Sons of Liberty" to turn the island into
another Outer Heaven.You will then learn that the President is
imprisoned in Shell Core 2.Then Raiden hears a nearby conversation after
giving you the LVL.3 PAN CARD.
Using the microphone listen in on the conversation between both Soliduse
and Ocelot.Remember the size of the text represents the volume.After a
while Olga will come inside.

|   Semtex traps.                                                   |
|                                                                   |
|14-On top of the second Cypher hovering above Strut G.             |
|___________________________________________________________________|

When they are destroyed there is another boss to defeat after a cut-
scene.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
                  BOSS#4:HARRIER 2 JET:
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
WEAPON:Cluster Bombs and Missiles.
STRATEGY:
Go straight to the door of Strut G and hide behind the railing.Then wait
for the Harrier to make a couple of circles around the struts.Remember
the harrier is the red triangle.Now when it disspears from view and look
towards it and when it speeds towards you fire two Stinger Missiles.Then
when it is above you fire a couple of rounds with the RGB86 and after a
while it will begin to fire misssiles across the bridge from the
side.When it does this go to the stairs and avoid them.Repeat this until
it is crashes into the bridge and falls into the sea.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------

(3)Now that the bridge is in pieces put out the fires beside the stairs
using the COOLANT SPRAY.Go down the bridge to collect the RATION,but
come back up quickly.Now see that thick strip which was once the middle
of the bridge?Run and cartwheel across to the next ledge and pick up the
ammo.Put out the fire and collect the AK-74 SUPRESSOR.

(4)Go to the pathway near you and quickly run scross as some of the
tiles will fall down.Then at thew end hang off the side and drop
off.Tranquilise the two guards and then continue on ,cartwheeling and
hanging.Then go up the ladder.Crawl the rest of the way despite the
falling tiles(When you reach a guard who decides to "relieve" himself
get under his urine and contact both Cmpbell and Pliskin for fun).Hang
of the edge here again.Then cartwheel across the broken bridge after

and catch some air)Go left two more times and take a right.Catch some
air and go through the submerged corridor.

(2)Make your way back to dry land and get top the elevator.Emma refuses
to go near it as the ground is covered by bugs.Take out the COOLANT
SPRAY and use it to drive them away.Pull her into the elevator and go to
the first floor.

(3)Leave Emma her and knock out all the guards patrolling this
area.Bring Emma along and then when you reach the stairs three more
guards come inside.Tranquilise them and bring Emma out to the KL Bridge.

(4)Kill the guard and use the COOLANT SPRAY to put out the fires and

towards the hatch.

CUT-SCENE:
After going down a 130 foot ladder both Emma and Raiden look off into
the sunset.Raiden insists that Emma should get to Strut E before himself
via the oil fences.She does that and Raiden calls Snake,asking him to
help secure Emmas journey across the fence.


(5)Pick up the ammo.Then get the right of the strut you're on.Now equip
the THERMAL GOGGLES.Pop a PENTAZAMIN (use these sparingly you should
have at least five for the next boss)and shoot the claymore mines on the
bridge that Emma is walking across.

(6)When you have done that shoot the guards on the strut in front of
her(Also the Cypher floating around).After a while Snake will contact
you again.He says that if you need help just contact him.Contact him
straight away and let him do the rest.

CUT-SCENE:
After Emma crosses across the second fence Vamp suddenly appears from
the water and holds a kinfe to Emma's throat.God does anything kill this
guy?.


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
                          BOSS#6: VAMP
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
WEAPON:None
STRATEGY:
Instead of fighting you Vamp has decided to keep a knife up to Emmas
throat.Now her life is in the balance.Use the PENTAZAMIN and aim at his
head.Then shoot him in the head several times in the head until he's
dead.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------

CUT-SCENE:
When the battle is over Emma's stomach starts to bleed.Snake picks her
up and brings her to Shell Core 1.Raiden runs quickly acros the oil
fences to Strut E.

(7)When inside go through the door and into the Parcel Room.Kill the
guard and head out to the E-F Connecting Bridge and into Shell Core
1.Get into the elevator and down to lvl.B2 an to see another cut-scene.

CUT-SCENE:
Raiden appears in the computer room to find Emma lying on the ground
with Otacon comforting her.Snake on the other hand is takes the MO Disk
made by Emma.When it enters the GW system,everything seem fine until it
loads up to 90% and stops.After a while Emma dies leaving Otacon to
admit he had an affair with Emma's mother.Then he picks up her parakeet
and leaves the room to save the hostages,crying on his way.Then as both
Snake and Raiden enter the elevator,the Cyborg Ninja.Everything fades to
black and all twelve struts and the two cores dissapear under the water.
Then we find Raiden in a torture bed while Revolver Ocelot are talking
about something called S3.....Then we learn the truth about Raiden's
past.It seems he was a soldier in Columbia during the civil war in the
late 1980's.After a brief talk with Rosemary,Raiden is startled to find
Olga Gurlukovich come into the room as she reveals herself as the Cyborg
Ninja.She then reveals she has been helping Raiden in order to make sure
her child is alive(Basically Raidens nanomachines are hooked up to her
child and he dies so does her child).After punching Raiden in the
stomach she frees him and leaves.

              ---------------------------------
              PART 9:INTERCEPTING ARSENAL GEAR:
              ---------------------------------

(1)When you come to go straight out of the room(Remember your butt naked
meaning your chances of catching a cold and you will lose more energy
from bullets etc.).Activate the node next to the locker(get the MEDICINE
in the locker) and continue on.

(2)When you enter the next room,Colonel Campbell will contact you and
will act really strange(this is because Campbell and Rose are both part
of the Arsenals artificial intelligence system GW which has been
affected by the FOXDIE computer virus.Now this is where all those
stealth practice was meant for.

(2)Make your way to the top of the room without being noticed and go up
the stairs to the left when you get the MEDICINE.

(3)Keep contacting Campbell until he says:

"You wouldn't be trying to give yourself a bogus score by using some
ingenious trick would you?That's just about as low as anyone could
possibly
stoop!I can't believe you sometimes..."
(Because when you get your stuff back from Snake your weapons will have
full ammo,because you need ALOT of Stingers for the next boss)


(4)Go to the top-right corner here and enter the Arsenal Colon.When
inside run up and down the room and keep answering the codec calls.Then
when "Rosemary" calls you:

CODEC:
"Rosemary" reveals that she was sent by the Patriots to spy on
Jack.That's why she was always nervous!Despite this she tells him that
she didn't expect falling in love with him.Jack becomes angry and she
tells him that she is pregnant until her voice changes.

(5)Then Jack spots Snake who comes with all of his gear.Snakes gives
you back all you stuff and also the HIGH FREQUENCY BLADE.Listen to his
instruction on how to use it.Practice with it for a while and head
towards the door at the top.

(6)When inside you will be spotted by a Cypher and enenmies will start
shooting at you.Use the M4 and AK (hold the L1 button to shoot while
running).Help Snake as much as you can and don't let him die.Make sure
that you that you have three or four rations when you exit.When you
enter the next area Otacon will call telling that both the Rosemary and
Campbell that you talk to on the Codec are not real but are in fact part
of the GW system in Arsenel.

(7)Go into the next room and prepare for another fight against hoards of
guards.This time use the HIGH FREQUENCY BLADE.During the fight the GW
system will play with your mind twice by making the "MISSION FAILED"(The
words "mission failed"will be replaced with "fission mailed")screen
appear twice.Instead of your dead body scene the will be replaced by the
"playing screen".Use the blade to kill as all the guards.After that
another cut-scene wil start.

CUT-SCENE:
Fortune appears and aims her gun at Snake who then persuades Raiden to
go away.Raiden goes up a ladder and then finds himself in the Arsenals
Rectum(Ha!Where does Hideo get this stuff?)with Soliduse and learns what
S3 stands for:Solid Snake Simulation,a simulation to create the perfect
soldiers.Suddenly Raiden is attacked by several
Metal Gear Ray units.

(8)Depending on what diffulcty level you are doing you have to destroy a
certain amount of RAY units.
VERY EASY - EASY:Three units
NORMAL:          Six units
HARD - EXTREME:  Twelve units

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
                     BOSS#7:METAL GEAR RAY UNITS
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
WEAPONS:Missiles,Lasers,Rail Gun.
STRATEGY:
Straight away fire a Stinger Missile at the leg of the RAY unit in front
of you.Then quickly at the head.Do this to one of the other untis and
then quickly to the middle one.Concentrate on these two until they are
destroyed(By the way when four blue missiles come out of the top of a
unit run around to avoid them).When a unit jumps onto the middle of the
arena shoot its leg then its head.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------

CUT-SCENE:
As a RAY unit appears and is about to kill Raiden until Olga comes
along.Soliduse then appears and kills her.The RAY starts to attack him
along with all the remaining ones.He eventually destroys them.Ocelot
calls him saying that the computer virus created by Emma has taken over
100% of Arsenal Gears artificial intelligence.Fortune then appears with
Snake,handcuffed.Soliduse then tries to choke you for a second time with
his tentacles.

Keep pressing the TRIANGLE button until he stops.

CUT-SCENES:
Then Fortune starts to leave the area(leaving Snake behind).Soliduse
startles her by revealing that he persuaded Ocelot to suggest the idea
to her and Vamp.It seems he was going to give it them when he left and
let the Patriots kill them while he took information from GW  concerning
the names and wherabouts of all twelve members of the Wisemans
Comitte.When she laughs at his failure to get the information(as it has
been destroyed along with GW)Ocelot reveals the entire truth about the
Tanker and the Big Shell.
Everthing was a simulation of Shadow Moses!!!!!!!Have you seen the
simularities?Olga and Gray Fox were both diguised as Cyborg Ninja's who
helped the hero.A computer virus that momics FOXDIE(Foxdie was a
articficial virus that simulated heart attacks and only attacked
specific genetic code.In other words it only attacked specific
people).FOXDIE killed the DARPA chief and President Baker with heart
attacks in MGS1(Also Ames nanomachines shut down his pacemaker giving
him a heart attack as well as the President.Didn't FOXHOUND(eg.Sniper
Wolf,Pyscho Mantis,Vulcan Raven and Decoy Octopus) remind you of DEAD
CELL?Raiden was chosen as their relationship was akin to that of Big
Boss and Snakes.Also Fatman is a member of the La-Le-Li-Lo-Lu and was
coaxed there if Stillman his enemy was there(If the Big Shell was
destroyed then the experiment would have finished.Fatman was another
test for Raiden).
It was an exercise set up by the Patriots all as a simulation for Raiden
in order to create the perfect warrior.He also reveals that he set up
the death of Fortunes dad and husband in order to fuel her anger to form
Dead Cell.He then lied to the gang that the Patriots had done all this
so she could keep the show running.He then shoots her and she falls
down.He reveals that a new gadget created by the Patriots kept bullets
away from her.She shoots her gun at him and dies(he has one of his
own.Ocelot then gets into a lone RAY unit and Fortune stands up and puts
her hands forward.Ocelot fires bombs at missiles at her but they miss
her until she falls down and dies.Liquid takes over and reveals that he
told Otacon about both RAY and ARSENAL.He leaves in RAY followed by
Snake.Arsenal heads towards New York and crashes into Federal Hall.Then
"Campbell" and "Rosemary"(By they both of them are real but GW
prentended to be them)reveal themselves as S3 that stands something
other than Solid Snake Simulation.What the talk about is very
philosophical stuff(Listen carefully as it can get confusing).I'm not
going to spoil anything so you'll have to listen to it yourself,but the
real Rosemary is also hooked up to Raidens nanomachines.(God!Hideo and
the rest of Konami really worked hard on this).Now you'll start a hard
fight against the last boss(God!I hope I don't get RSI).

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
                    BOSS#8:SOLIDUSE SNAKE
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
WEAPONS:Tentacle Whip,Fire Triangle,Tentacle Missiles.
STRATEGY:
Now this is what you have been waiting for.Equip the BODY ARMOUR and
look for a RATION at one of the corners of the building.Wait until
Soliduse goes into a fighting frenzy with his swords.When he is finished
you'll have about two seconds to hit him with the blade(Make sure it's
in kill mode).You'll also have a few seconds when he tries to whip you
with his tentacles.Keep hiting him until he removes his tentacles.Now
he'll do th Fire Triangle where he charges at you.
Keep using the blade to prevent you from being hit.Now you must him
after another frenzy attack.Repeat this until he dies.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------
CUT-SCENE:
Soliduse dies leaving Raiden on the roof.Then he jumps off Federal Hall
and onto 52nd Street,while crowds build up on the street to see what
happens.The real Rosemary appears and she and Raiden kiss and then talk
about the future.
P.S.Vamp will appear in the surrounding crowd.
Snake then appears and soon leaves with a disk from Arsenal Gear
containing the names of Patriots,Wisemans Comitte.Then after the theme
song Otacon and Snake can be heard talking about the disk.When asked who
they are Otacon replies saying they have been dead for a 100 years......

---------------------------------------------------------
Here is a list of what Colonel Campbell will drone on about when you
enter the Jenijum Room of Arsenal Gear.Because Emmas virus has attacked
only 90% of Arsenal Gears AI it has affected both Campbell and Rose's
transmssions seeming as they are part of the GW system.
Here is a list of all the things that they say.Most of the transmissions
are from earlier Metal Gear games while others are totallly
insane.Basicaly some of them along with the "FISSION MAILED" screen are
uses of psychological warfare that is part of S3(A friend of mine
actually thought it was a bug as he had played for 15 hours straight
when he got to this part).When you enter the Jenijum Room the Campbell
will contact you with the first funny moments:
_____________________________________________________________________
COLONEL:"Raiden recover your items"

RAIDEN: "What about Snake?"

COLONEL:"Forget him.He was never part of the simulation.You must act
         out your role"
RAIDEN: "Why do you keep talking about my role?!"

COLONEL:"Well isn't this a type of role-playing game?Raiden, turn the
game console off right now!"

RAIDEN: "What did you say?"

COLONEL:"The mission is a failure! Cut the power right now!"

RAIDEN: "What's wrong with you?"

COLONEL:"Don't worry, it's a game! It's a game just like usual."

ROSEMARY:"You'll ruin your eyes playing so close to the TV."

RAIDEN: "What are you talking about!?"

COLONEL:"Raiden something happened to me last Thursday when I was
driving home.I had a couple of miles to go--I looked up
and saw a glowing orange object in the sky,to the east!It was moving
very irregularly...suddenly there was intense light all around me--and
when I came to,I was home What do you think happened to me?"

RAIDEN:"You know what Colonel come to think of it I've never actually
        met you in person"

COLONEL:"Raiden!We have Rosemary".

After meeting Ames you will be albe to listen in on a conversation
between Soliduse Snake,Revolvor Ocelot and Olga with the DIRECTIONAL
MICROPHONE move it to the left in order to hear a genome soldier having
trouble in the nearby bathroom.Also if you point the microphone towards

she's lying.

Straight after meeting Stillman and Pliskin in the Strut C Kitchen go to
the CD Conneting Bridge to see the guard unconcious.Then take out your
SOCOM and shoot the cardboard box that is running around the place to
reveal Pliskin.Contact him continuosly until he informs you about
it.Then go back to the Kitchen and knock the door of the pantry where
Stillman is in until he gets pissed off.Also in the Shell 2 Core knock
on the wall opposite the elevator until the President gets furious.Then
in the Storage Room with Emma,shoot at the locker she is in to scare
her.

WHAT THE F**K IS HE TALKING ABOUT?:

has said something your character will think something bad about them.

-----------------------
MY EYES,OH GOD MY EYES:
-----------------------
You can have alot of fun with the First-Person View.First when on the
Strut A Roof and stand where there is alot of bird feces(watch out as
you can easily fall).Then look up into the sky until a piece of feces
drops onto your camera.Then when on the Strut L Perimeter,when the guard
starts to take a whizz get "your head wet" and look up at him.Then when
on the Big Shell plant a C4 next to some bugs(In the Strut A Deep Sea
Dock or the Filtration Room in Shell Core 2,while bringing Emma to the
Shell Core 1)and then get to the other side of the room.Detonate the
C4,while looking at the bugs to get them SPLAT!on your face.Also if you
die while in the first-person view the screen will break into a million
pieces.

--------------------------------------------
SORRY MADAME,I DIDN'T MEAN TO FRIGHTEN YOU:
--------------------------------------------
When inside the Hostage Room on level B1 of Shell Core 1,start using the
DIRECTIONAL MICROPHONE on alot of the hostages other than Ames.When you
do this Raiden will get p****d off and will then frighten the
hostages.Then look for a woman named Jennifer who has her legs slightly
open.Then like a pervert you can  tranquilise her and crawl inbetween
her legs and take a look around!!Also if you keep scaring hostages other
than Ames with the microphone some will start to wet themselves and
Raiden will become agitated.To get another angle crawl under the table
Jennifer s facing and take a look.

-----------------------
FRY,LITTLE,PIGGY!!FRY!:
-----------------------
When you first enter Shell Core 1,Olga's comrade will activate the
electric floor in front of the door leading to the President.Now equip a
CARDBOARD BOX and run onto the electrified path to see it burn.Then
throw a MAGAZINE CLIP onto it to see it maganetised.

-------------------------
AMERICANS WATCH PORN TOO:
-------------------------
Inside the Tanker,when you reach Hold No.2 walk to the side of the twin
projects and press the small button with the action button.Then press it
over and over again(this will cause the picture of Commandant Scott
Dolph's lecture go from one screen to another)until two Japanese models
on a beach(By now you should have no control).Then after a while you
will be caught.Also when inside the Ascending Colon of Arsenal Gear,you
will get a few codec calls and after a while your radar will be replaced
with a Japanese model.Remeber if answer any more calls it will
dissapear.

---------------
SLITHERY STUFF:
---------------
(1)When playing the Plant chapter on Hard and Extreme you can get the
SHAVER at the very start,in the Strut A Deep Sea Dock.Hang onto the
railing and over to the two submarine suits.Then when you give it to
Snake in Strut B,his beard will be shaven at the end.

(2)While fighting the Harrier 2 Jet,fire stinger missiles at the Kasatka
K-62 and both Otacon and Snake will curse at you and fire bullets at
you.

----------------
PICTURE PERFECT:
----------------
Taking pictures of different things in the Tanker chapter will give you
different responses from Otacon when you load them to him.Remember
loading a new game will result in the pictures being automatically
deleated.

(1)Take a picture of the poster with a Japanese model wearing a red
dress,which is found in the locker of the Deck-A:Crews Quarters and he
will blush.

(2)Take a picture of Olga's crotch after you have put her to sleep and
Otacon will blush.

(3)Take a picture of the Vulcan Raven doll and the muscle poster in the
Engine Room and Otacon will question Snake's sexuality.

(4)Take a picture of the couple in the Engine Room on the two lockers
next to the Semtex traps.

(5)Take a picture of the lone Marine in Hold No.1 who isn't wearing any
trousers and Otacon will laugh!

(6)Take a picture of the screen on the right in Hold No.2 to see Hideo
Kojima's ghost.Send this to Otacon to get an unusual reaction.

-------------------
MAN ARE YOU CRAZY?:
-------------------
Doing certain things during the game wll cause your surperiors to call
you with nothing but disgust for you.Here is a list of them
Sometimes you have to call them persistantly.

(1)In the Tanker look for the two posterts with Japanese models and
contact Otacon while looking at them in First-Person View.

(2)Shoot Olga after fighting her and Otacon will call you and will be
angry at you.Also if you keep contacting Otacon he will bring up Meryl
into the conversation.Then look at Olga in First-Person View and call
Otacon for more conversations about Meryl.

(3)Call Pliskin persistantly after meeting him to hear his
nightmares.Then shoot him a few times and then contact Campbell and
Pliskin.

(4)Get into the cubicle in the men's bathroom with the FHM poster and
contact Campbell,Pliskin and Rosemary while looking at it inb First-
Person View.

(5)Call Rosemary and Pliskin when inside the womens bathroom for fun.

(6)In the Tanker chapter talk to Otacon with the PENTAZAMIN equipped and
then use it.Talk to Otacon again and when in the Plant chapter do the
same again except call Pliskin to get a follow-up.

(7)When you get a lvl.2 grip gauge in the Tanker,Otacon will
congratulate you.Also  olonel and rose will congeratulate you when you
get a lvl.3 grip gauge.

(8)When you kill at least 20 seagulls on the Plant chapter(With the PSG-
1,of course),Campbell and Rosemary will be angry at you.

(9)Contact Pliskin,Campbell and Rosemary while you have the BOOK
equipped.Also when you enter the Shell 1 Core for the first time contact
Pliskin and then Campbell while running.

(10)Contact Otacon a few times in the Filtration Room(where you fight
Vamp for the first time)to hear him and Emma have a fight.Also if you
shoot Emma a few times with the SOCOM Otacon will get furious.After a
few shots both him and Snake will ignore.

(11)Punch Emma and contact her for her reaction.Then knock her out with
the M9 and lie ontop of her and call Otacon.

(12)When inside Shell 2 Core 1F,contact Otacon repeatildy to make him do
some freaky stuff.Then when you exit the Core with Emma contact Snake to
hear about his new errand.

(13)When on the oil fences listen in on Emma's chattering(with the
DIRECTIONAL MICROPHONE)after destroying the Claymore mines and shooting
the guards and Cyphers.When she talks about the soldier with diarrhea
contact her and also when she talks about your hair.You can also shoot
at Snake(he's on the strut to the right)when he gets there and contact
him and use the microphone in orcordance with your CODEC.

(14)Keep contacting Otacon when swimming through the sunken corridors of
Shell Core 2 B1,to get information on Emma,Arsenal Gears GW System and
the Patriots.Contact him repaetidly at the beginning of the game to get
some cool stuff.Also contact him during the Tanker chapter to get
information about the rooms etc.Also contact Campbell during the Plant
chapter to also get information on each room and the Big Shell.

(15)When your in the hostage room keep kicking the hostages when the
guard(s)are not looking.Both Rosemar will break up with you when you
contact Campbell.Contact Her frequency and Campbells after you have done
this.

(16)After destroying the Harrier 2 Jet,contact Otacon and Snake to get
information on Outer Heaven,Ames and Natasha.

(17)The dining hall has a Plasma TV.Look at it in First-Person View and
call Otacon.

(18)Go behind Emma and then kick her in the arse and call Otacon.

--------------
Little Things:
--------------
To find the four Easter Island Statues follow the instructions:

(1)In Strut D you'll find on the central pump.
(2)In the Computer Room of Shell 1 Core you'll find this under a
   desk.
(3)Go into the room in the Air Purification Room of Shell 2 Core,with
two gun cameras and get on the crate after destroying the cameras.Fire
two Nikita missiles onto the grating of the air vent and guide a missile
inside.At the first intersection destroy the grating on the right and
send a fifth missile inside to see the statue.

(4)On Extreme look for this in the upper-right locker in the room that
Emma is in.Avoid the CLAYMORE mine.

These are to be done in the Computer Room in Shell 1 Core when all
guards are carefully killed.

01-Spray the parakeet with the COOLANT SPRAY for a while and it will
   get angry at you.

02-If you fire bullets at the parakeet and you'll notice it uses the
   same technology used by Fortunbe and Ocelot.After a while it'll
   call for backup.

03-Use the DIRECTIONAL MICROPHONE to hear the birds heartbeat and
   after a while it will repeat you if you keep using it over and
   over again.

04-Call Campbel straight away after finding the parakeet to listen to
   something funny

12.Song Lyrics:
===============
"CAN'T SAY GOODBYE TO YESTERDAY"
--------------------------------
VOCALS:Carla White
PRODUCED BY:Rika Muranaka

I stare at the stars and the sky up above
And think "What am I made of?"
Am I full of sorrow? Am I hurt and pained?
Or am I filled...with love?
I walk by myself on the streets below
And ask every child I know,
Do you think tomorrow will bring sun or rain?
Which one of these will show?

I can't say good-bye to yesterday, my friend,
I keep holding on 'till the end
Out of the darkness there is no other way
Than the light leading to yesterday

It's there that I'll find
In a peace not warm
And dreams that I let slip away
I'll find the joyfulness I'm looking for
Way back in yesterday

Why can't each of us in the world ever see,
The best things in life are free
Little sounds of laughter or one hug, a smile
A kiss from you to me

I fall to my knees
I cry and I cry
Love, do not pass me by
Happy everafter, please stay for a while
Make time refuse to fly

I can't say good-bye to yesterday, my friend
'Cause i know how good it has been
Face it forever, here I stand, come what may
In the old in the new yesterday

It's there that I'll find
In a peace not warm
And dreams that I let slip away
I'll find the joyfulness I'm looking for
Way back in yesterday

==========
13.Themes:
==========

---------
GENETICS:
---------
As you probably know the main theme of the original Metal Gear Solid was
"Is a person defined by their genes?".This releated to Snake and his
connections with Liquid and Big Boss.In the opening sequence when it
shows Snake,it depicts a strand of DNA breaking apart,representing his
breakaway from his past.Then after showing Raiden it depicts the DNA
strand coming together representing the fact that he still hasn't
accepted his past.The main theme of this game is "Is there information
that is not inherited in our genes?"

-----
LOVE:
-----
Love is a major theme in Metal Gear Solid 2:Sons Of Liberty.It can be
found between both Jack and Rosemary throughout the Plant Chapter.Both
of them feel strongly for each other and it through them revealing their
secrets to each other that they realise how much they love each other.As
explained in the DVD with this game Hideo reveals that he got both their
names from "Titanic"(1997).He did this in order to show that in both MGS
2 and Titanic the two Jacks and Rose's love couldn't be broken by either
the sinking of the ship or the terrorist threat.

--------------
NUCLEAR POWER:
--------------
This is one of the most important themes in the game as it reflects on
the nuclear arms race and one very clear question:Is it really worth
it?When will it end?Why is the point?This is really a major question
especially during this point in history.From this game we soon
understand that the threat will only exist as long as the means and
weaponry to control it does.

---------
HUMANITY:
---------
From The Patriots conversation at Federal Hall we can really start to
think that whether or not we consider ourselves a civilised species(This
is intresting,especially from the point of view of an computer).In the
lines like "Be nice.Be good to others,but beat out the competition"
technically this is sorta true.A lot of what "Campbell" and "Rosemary"
say is very philosophical and will make you think.

====================
14.Intresting Facts:
====================
----------
LOVE SONG:
----------
The theme song for Metal Gear Solid "Whatever May Become" was origianlly
sang in Gaeilic Irish.

-----------------
GUEST APPEARANCE:
-----------------
If you've wondered why Mei Ling appears in the end credits you can hear
her correcting one of Otacon's sayings in the Tanker(It's sometime after
the one where he talks abouts chickens and cows.(Don't even ask me).

-------------------
HEY THERES MY NAME:
-------------------
At the end of the game on the cut-scene where Raiden meets Snake in
front of Ferderal Hall,the camera will focus on his dog
tag(Raidens)showing the information you put on it(YOUR name etc.)into
the node in the Strut A Sea Dock.

-------------------------------
MUST HAVE BEEN SOMETHING I ATE:
-------------------------------
All the rooms of Arsenal Gear are named after parts of the human
digestive system.These include the Stomach,Descending Colon and Rectum!!

-----------------------------
AH SO THAT'S WHY HE IS SCARY:
-----------------------------
Vamp was designed and based on a flaminco dancer.That is why he has long
black hair.Also it the reason that you fight him for the first time the
theme for Vamp(Spanish flaminco type music thingy)is played and does a
little twirl.Also he is a commander because in MGS 1 after defeating
Vulcan Raven he mentions to Liquid that he had a meeting with a
Commander Ivan.To support this,in "Sons of Liberty" if you keep ringing
Pliskin when you start defusing the bombs he implys the fact that he may
have heard of him before.When meeting Vamp for the first time he
mentions the line "Crazy Ivan knows what he's talking about"when he is
talking about the purified hydrogen bomb.

---------------------------------------------
THERE'S ONLY ROOM FOR ONE OF US IN THIS TOWN:
---------------------------------------------
If you've ever seen the movie "Escape from New York" you'll notice that
Kurt Russel plays the character Snake Pliskin.Pliskin is the name that
Snake uses when he meets Raiden.Also Iriquios is the Aloquion word for
snake(the Aloquion tribe lived in Manhatten before it was taken over by
the Dutch).Another intresting fact is that Manhatten is also the
Aloquion word for "hill of snakes".
