==============================================================================

 NOTE: Character bios taken from the Official Bradygames guide.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 SNAKE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The main character, this is who you play as. A man who formally introduced 
himself as "John Doe" and whent also by the nickname, "Jack". The operative 
assigned the codename "Naked Snake" during the historic operation "Virtuous 
Mission" reputedly cared little for the rappings of identity.

Long before he would lead the US to victory in the Cold War, his chief concern 
in life was one of many disciplines he learned during his training under The 
Boss, the woman whose combat talents led tha Allies to victory in World War 
II, also known as the mother of today's Special Forces. 

The exact depths of the relationship between Naked Snake and The Boss remain 
unclear, but what is known is that they met ten years prior to Virtuous 
Mission and drifed apart perhaps five years after their meeting. Together 
they crated the martial arts-inspired fighting style knows as Close Quarters 
Combat, or CQC. 

A mixture of martial arts combined with handgun and knife techniques, CQC is 
a means of disarming and disabling an opponent in as few moves as possible. 
Naked Snake utilized these legendart skills during the failed Virtuous 
Mission and the successive Operation Snake Eater. Though the circumstances of 
how he was able to complete the mission remain unknown, he was subsequently 
awarded the title of "Big Boss" and went on to establish the Special Forces 
Unit FOXHound. 

In later years he would betray his country and President to obtain the stolen 
weapon Metal Gear in an attempt to establish the soldier-ruled regime 
of "Outer Heaven" in Zanzibar Land. many psychologists have attempted to 
puzzle together the roots of his demoralization and eventual treason, and 
some point to the vague events of Operation Snake Eater. Understanding this 
complex historic character may be more than most could hope for.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 ZERO
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The Major assigned to run Virtuous Mission and Operation Snake Eater, both 
designed to aid Russion weapons development scientist and defector Doctor 
Sokolov escape from the clutches of the GRU. "Major Zero", as he came to be 
known, was the creator of the original FOX unit and a former member of the 
SAS. having failed to rescue Sokolov from Russian authorities during a 
previous mission that did not involve Naked Snake, the Major bore a heavy 
conscious and plunged ahead with Virtuous Mission. 

It may be due to his hasty preparations that Virtuous Mission failed and that 
The Boss defected to Russia. If he had prepared better, he might have known 
of The Boss' intentions before hiring her as a weapons and tactics 
consultant. 

When debriefed following the subsequent Operation Snake Eater, Major Zero 
remained unforthcoming as to the fulfillemtn of the mission and the 
involvement of the man later to be known as Big Boss. He would only agree 
that the operative codenamed Naked Snake was a major part of the operation, 
and that things would have gone terribly wrong without his involvement at the 
time.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 SOKOLOV
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

A Russian weapons research scientist and attempted defector, Sokolov was the 
subject of the rescue attempt entitled Virtuous Mission and the subsequent 
campaign called Operation Snake Eater. Due to his dissappearance during or 
after Snake Eater, many historians point out that he was likely assigned a 
new ientity. Sokolov is, after all, credited with the infamous Shagohad 
project, a precursor to today's Metal Gears. 

Though his reason for wanting to defect remains unclear, one can surmise that 
perhaps he became disillusioned about the nature of his work and wished to 
cease weapons production in light of the supposed lethality of the Shagohad. 
However, since the United States intended to utilize Sokolov in its own 
weapons research and development, what he hoped to gain by defecting could 
not be determined. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 EVA
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Thought to be a KGB spy working for Khrushchev, the spy working under the 
codename EVA rendezvoused with Naked Snake instead of the missing operative 
ADAM. It remains unclear whether Operation Snake Eater was largely successful 
due to her help or in spite of her rumored interference.

The only man who may know the answer regarding her involvement is the main 
operative codenamed Naked Snake, later known as Big Boss. Therefore, the truth 
regarding the woman known as EVA is perhaps lost in history. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 THE BOSS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Little is actually recored in any of the files regarding the woman known by 
the revered title, "The Boss". This is mainly due to the top secret, cloak 
and dagger nature of most of the missions in which she participated. What all 
of the files do state in resonance is that she was largely responsible for 
the victory of the Allies in World War II, and that she went on to become the 
creator and "mother" of the Special Forces. 

Yet for reasons entirely unknown to the US government, The Boss betrayed the 
country she had sever for over 20 years and two wars, defecting to the USSR 
during Virtuous Mission. She was blamed and accused of launching and 
detonating to "Davy Crockett" class portable nuclear warheads in Russian 
Territory. The reasons for her sudden and erratic behavior were unknown to 
all, save the other participants in Operation Snake Eater and her beloved 
hand-picked Cobra Unit, also known as the "Sons of The Boss".


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 OCELOT
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The commander of the Ocelot Unit that served the renegade Russian Colonel 
Volgin of the GRU was well known for his amazing learning and adaptive 
capabilities. Able to employ advanced combat skills within mere hours of 
seeing them in action, the Ocelot ommander was unmatched in his unit. For this 
reason, the GRU treated Ocelot as second in command to Volgin, despite 
presence of other higher-ranking officials within the specialized army.

In his later life, he joined the unit FOXHound and became known as "Revolver 
Ocelot". Ocelot's actions indicate the possibility that he could be a double 
agent, alling his true loyalty and motivations into question.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 VOLGIN
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Colonel and commander of the Russian GRU, which led an uprising against 
Khrushchev in the early '60s, Volgin bore the codename "Thunderbolt", due to 
his reported ability to channed and control electric energy. Volgin built and 
presided over the imprnetrable fortress Groznyj Grad, named for Ivan Groznyj, 
or "Ivan the Terrible". The Shagohod weapons system was allegedly being 
developed inside his fortress when Dodtor Sokolov attempted to defect. 

Volgin often uttered the Japanese phrase "Kuwabara, Kuwabara" before or after 
the performing psychotic, vicious acts of cruelty. There is no exact 
translation in the English language for this phrase, but in Volgin's usage he 
most likely meant to say, "The horror..." perhaps promising death and 
destruction to his enemies.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 THE PAIN
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Cobra Unit hornet soldier "The Pain" was a master bee tamer and hornet 
specialist supposedly capable of commanding entire swarms of stinging hornets 
to do is bidding and attack his enemies. A former comrade of The Boss, The 
Pain was one of several fearsome Cobra Unit commandos involved in the events 
of Operation Snake Eater.

The Pain ostensible developed his rare gift by allowing thousands of hornets 
to sting him for months at a time, until the hive came to believe that he was 
in fact another hornet himself. His intense willingness to suffer pain for his 
art enticed The Boss to recruit him for the Cobra Unit during the last world 
war.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 THE FEAR
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Cobra Unit spider soldier "The Fear" was appropriately named, due to his 
frightening appearance and abilities. The Fear dislocated limbs at will to 
enhance his strange ability to climb rough surfaces like a spider.

The dislocation allowed The Fear to leap great distances and to crawl across 
the ground at lightning-fast speeds. A formidable wilderness hunter, The Fear 
preferred to use a crossbow gun to "sting" his opponents with toxic poitions 
extracted from the world's deadliest insects.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 THE END
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

A veteran of dozens of wars, The End spent most of his latter days in a kind 
of preventative hibernation, staving off his own natural death until he 
finally found a battle worthy of his life. A superior marksman and sniper, 
The End employed camouflage techniques that made him invisible even the 
brightest, most exposed arenas. His sole companion in life was a squawking 
parrot, which woke The End up just in time for battle. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 THE FURY
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

An astronaut on secret Soviet rocket messions, The Fury reportedly fought 
with all the anger and rage he felt regarding the warlike state of the world. 
Equepping a headvy spacesuit and the most powerful flamethrower ever made, 
The Fury would unleash his flames of wrath upon his enemies, consuming them 
in puriflying fires he wished would consume the whole world, wiping mankind's 
slate clean.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 THE SORROW
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

A former Cobra Unit spirit medium soldier, The Sorrow could evidently speak 
to dead men on the battlefield to determind enemy positions and armaments. 
His tap into the spirit world also probided him a means to see slightly into 
the future, and to read the minds of interrogation subjects. However, The 
Sorrow was reportedly killed years before Operation Snake Eater. Therefore, 
there is no way he could have been part of The Boss's defection and the GRU 
uprising... could he?

[4] THE BASICS                                                          [0400]

==============================================================================

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 STAMINA
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Stamina is as important as health in this game. Stamina will deplete if you 
move using the Left analog, shimmy, climbing, attacking, etc. If Snake's 
stamina is low, aiming will be harder, for Snake starts shaking the gun. If 
you run out of Stamina, Snake's stomach will growl, possibly alerting any 
nearby enemies. Killing animals and taking food will help. Eat food in the 
survival viewer to regain stamina, helping Snake perform more activities.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BACKPACK
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Snake can't hold every single weapon and item that he acquires in the game. 
In order to use a particular item or weapon on the battlefield, you must open 
your survival viewer and select "BACKPACK". From there, you can select weapons
and items to your window. 

Back in the game, press R2 to view theaccessible weapons to use, or press L2
to use accessible items. You can only hold a certain amount of weapons and
items in your arsenal, so you must choose wisely. At anytime you want to
disable an item or weapon, just access your backpack and take it out. You can
replace it with another weapon or item to use.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 CURING
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After the prologue, Snake will be able to cure himself of inguries sustained 
in battle. Open the survival viewer and select "CURE". The screen will show 
injuries on Snake's body. You can use certain medicine for certain injuries. 

An example is a burn. You can use ointment and a bandage to completely heal a 
burn wound. For a gunshot wound, first you must extract the bullet with your 
knife, then use disinfectants, stitches, and bandages. If you find out that 
you don't have all of the medicinal items used to heal a wound, then your 
wound will only be somewhat cured. If a would is left without any type of 
medicinal care, then Snake's stamina will decrease more than usual.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 SAVING
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

I must admit, I didn't know how to save until Mission 3. If you don't explore 
enough with in-game menus and such, then you will have the same problem as I 
did. In order to save your game, you must press select and access your radio. 
From there, type in the frequency "140.96" to contact Para-Medic to save.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 CQC
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

CQC stands for close-quarters-combat, which proves to be very useful in this 
game. Some times, if you don't have any guns, this proves to be vey useful. 
If an enemy has spotted you, press O to unleash a 3-hit combo on your 
opponent, knocking him to the ground. If you aren't loticed by a guard, sneak 
up behind the enemy and press O when you are right behind him. You will grab 
the enemy by the throat. There are several techniques used once you've 
grabbed your opponent:

 Direct Throw (Left Analog + O) - You will slam the enemy to the ground, 
                                  stunning him

 Interrogate (L3 + O) - You will interrogate the enemy, where they could  
                        possibly leak useful information out of fear

 Human Shield (Square) - Once the enemy is grabbed, press Square to use the 
                         enemy as a human shield

 Slit Throat (Hold O) - Snake will slit the enemy's throat, leaving a bloody
                        body to be dealt with

 Neck Snap (Tap O) - Snake will start to choke the enemy, then proceeds to 
                     snap their neck


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 STEALTH
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Stealth is what this whole game is all about. Instead of normal shooter games 
where you wipe the field of enemies, you must be very strategic in this game. 
if an enemy is near, use the D-Pad to stalk him instead of the left analog 
stick, where you will make more noise. Crawling under grass and underbrush is 
very important for being undetected. Press X to crouch, then use the analog 
stick to crawl under platforms or through tall grass. 

In order to lose all hope of being detected, drag unconcious or dead bodies in
unaccessible or hard-to-find places, such as dropping them off of a bridge or
hiding them in tall grass. If an enemy spots a body of their comrade, they
will be even more cautious than before. When Snake is up against a wall, he
can knock on the wall by pressing O to attract nearby enemies to their
unsuspecting doom. Sadistic, I know. I love it.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 ENEMY STATS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Certain icons appear over enemies head to represent their status:

 ? - Suspicious of something (might have seen something strange). Enemy 
     proceeds to stare where he possibly saw you, then continues on his patrol

 ! (Blue) - May have heard a strange sound or seen a dead body. Enemy moves in
            to investigate.

 ! (Red) - Enemy spots Snake. The enemy will enter alert stage and tries to 
           call for backup.

 *** - Unconcious. Either kill or avoid the guard before he wakes up.

 ZZZ - Asleep. Either kill or avoid the guard before he wakes up.


Certain alert stages will occur if the enemies become suspicious of you. If 
one comes up, you have 99.99 seconds before the enemy resumes patrolling and 
loses all suspicion of anything:

 Alert Phase - When a guard spots Snake. Guards will come to reinforce each 
               other. If you kill or tranquilize the guard who saw you, alert
               stage will turn off.

 Evasion Phase - Occurs when the alert phase timer expires. Enemies will have 
                 lost sight of Snake, but will resume the process of looking
                 for him. Another timer will be set to 99.99 seconds once this
                 phase starts.

 Caution Phase - This phase is triggered when the evastion phase ends, and 
                 another 99.99 second timer will start. Enemies patrol the
                 area like normal, but are more alert and cautious.

==============================================================================

 NOTE: The item placement, enemy patrol routes, and all that junk is based on
       the Normal difficulty

 * = Must defeat boss by depleting stamina with Mk22. That's the only way to 
     receive these types of items.

==============================================================================

The opening scene to the game is not only long, but it's a nice cinema. Just
remember that you can press and hold R1 when it appears onscreen to look 
through the eyes of the man you will be playing as, Snake.

   Items: Life Medicine
 Weapons: None
    Food: Russian False Mango, Russian Oyster Mushroom, Siberian Ink Cap,
          Giant Anaconda, Reticulated Python

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The first area of the game. Don't worry, there are no enemies here. After 
Snake is done talking with the Major on radio, get a feel for the game by 
walking around and crawling. Remember that the Major says that he always 
refers north as up, south as down, east as right, and west as left. I will be 
using the same references. Got it?

Go east, then north once you reach the dead end. Pick up the box by walking 
over it. It's a life medicine. Slide down the hill, then press Triangle while 
next to the central tree with the ivy on it. You will climb it. Walk to the 
end of the branch, then press Triangle when you're under the backpack to swing 
down and get it. 

This is a good area to hunt for food, because there aren't any enemies. Look 
on the ground for snakes. They aren't hard to miss. Walk up to one and press 
Circle three times to kick the snake, killing it. Pick it up, and you can 
access the food in the Survival Viewer. You can use the Mk22 against it too, 
but there's no need to waste bullets, is there? Head north into the next area.

For your second area, this place can be dangerous. There are numerous gavials 
scattered along the swamp, and they can hurt you. Use your Mk22 to 
tranquilize them from a distance. If you're brave (or stupid), you can kill 
the gavials with your knife, but I don't recommend it. Most of the area is 
covered in quicksand, so stay near the edges. Search the grass near the first 
animal for bug juice, then continue east in the grass to find grenades. 

Go north through the quicksand and proceed onto the island. Watch out for the 
two gavials. Aim up in the tree and shoot the hornet's nest. Head off of the 
island towards the west side of the swamp. There will be more gavials, so 
avoid them and collect the suppressor in the western corner of the swamp. 
Continue east through the quicksand until you reach the northern bank. Walk 
down the path, shoot the fruit from the trees, and continue to the next area.

Ooh, guards! This is where you really can't run around anymore. First off, 
crawl in the crass in front of you. If you move around the camera a bit, you 
should see a guard coming straight ahead. Equip the Leaf Camouflage and wait 
until the guard is close enough for firing range.

Now, I must admit, I was awful at this area, because I'm not used to not 
having crosshairs for games. So what I did is that if I wanted to aim for a 
guy's head, don't aim at his head, aim a little below. If you're a pro at MGS 
games, then just tranq him in the face. 

Unequip everything, and press Square to drag hiss unconcious body into the
tall grass. Knife him to death, and get up, and hide behind trees until you
see a fork in the road. When the right path is accessible, head right and up
the hill. At the top, you will find the Dragunov Sniper Rifle. You can use it
if you want, but it's very noisy, so guards can spot you easier if you use it.

Head back down the hill, and crawl under the tree trunk to find bug juice. 
You can wait for the next enemy to come along. Crawl out of the other side of 
the trunk and into the tall grass. You can either tranq him or use some CQC, 
it's your choice. Either way, drag his body away from any guards' sight and 
kill him.

You can pick him up and put him down so he drops ammo. It's a useful technique 
called "shaking". Head north, and tranq any guards in your way. Instead of 
going straight the whole time, head east once the path is open. Crouch and 
look around for any guards. 

If the coast is clear, make a mad dash eastwards and a little north until you 
find another tree trunk. Crawl in it and collect the thermal goggles. There 
should be another enemy in front of you, so tranq and knife him. If at any 
time, an enemy sees you, quickly tranq him and hide in the tree trunk before 
reinforcements see you.

Once all the guards are eliminated, head to the western side and search the 
grass to find grenades. You can hunt for wildlife in the area, but if you're 
fine, then head north until you find a center pathway. Head up the path to the 
next area.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One little item found here can make the whole area easy as hell: the hornet's 
nest. Look down the ledge at the guard. Look above him. There should be a 
hornet's nest in the tree right above him.

Shoot the nest, angering the hornets and attacking the guard. The guard runs 
across the bridge, and the hornets end up attacking all of the other gaurds, 
chasing them out of the area! For some strange reason, like, if you miss the 
nest and alert the guard, simply tranq and kill the lone guard, then snipe the 
two on the bridge. 

Bring the guard's unconcious body next to the other two on the bridge. Slice 
the ropes on either side of the bridge, and the bridge will slide, sliding 
the bodies right off of the bridge and into the river. That was easy, wasn't 
it? You'll probably slide with the bodies. If you fall to the edge, Snake 
will grab on the edge. Press Triangle to climb back onto the bridge.

Across the bridge, collect the mushrooms on the base of the tree. Head west, 
then south down the small tunnel. You will come to the edge of the cliff. 
Shimmy across, and you'll end up in a small alcove under the bridge. Collect 
the XM16E1 and Pentazemin, then head back across and up the tunnel. Go west 
into the next area.

After the cutscene, head to the side of the right-hand wall. Crawl, and there 
will be an opening on the eastern side of it. Crawl through to the other 
side. A guard will be patrolling down the road. Once he gets inbetween the 
two brick walls, get behind him and perform CQC to knock him out. Drag him 
into the grass and knife him. Head up the pathway towards the eastern side. 
When you come up to the building, hide behind a wall and check that the coast 
is clear, then enter. You can find an M37 behind some crates. 

Move up the stairs. Only proceed up the first flight, then look above you at 
the platform. A guard shoud be ducking and looking around. He can't see you, 
so tranq him in the face. Go up the next flight of stairs and knife him on 
the upper level (I love that phrase).

Collect the suppressor and ammo for your XM16E1. Go back down the stairs, move 
east and hide behind some stacked cardboard boxes. A guard should come past 
and walk right next to you without seeing you. Use CQC on him and slit his 
throat or whatever. Just don't make noise.

Head back towards the eastern side of the ruined building and look on the 
wall for a ladder. Climb up to gain access to the roof. Shoot some Sunda-
Whistling Thrushes, and go back to the building. Go north all the way to the 
end of the building, and dive through the opening on the east side. If there 
is a guard waiting for you, take him out with CQC or your Mk22. Head south, 
then east in the small room. Open the door to encounter Sokolov.

After the cutscene, head back to Dremuchij North. A rather long cutscene will 
ensue, so kick back and relax. Once the cutscene ends, you will have to cure 
your injuries. Open the survival viewer, and since Para-medic will be holding 
your hand through the whole thing; listen to her orders and you'll be fine. 
You have just beaten the Prologue!

Enemies are absent this time through, so you can either hurry or take your 
time. You may want to go animal hunting if you're short on food. Enter the 
ruined base to trigger a cutscene. Eva arrives on the scene, and in the 
beginning of the cutscene, when the R1 icon appears, press R1 to "enjoy" the 
scene a little more. Eva gives you an Mk22, an M191A11 and a Scientist 
Camouflage. She tells you to rest. 

Snake falls asleep after their conversation. Snake will wake up to find 
Ocelot soldiers infiltrating the ruins. Eva escapes in a secret passageway 
under the ruins, and Snake tells her that he'll take care of the soldiers.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Ocelot Unit
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Follow Eva by opening the trapdoor and pressing Triangle. Once you're under, 
turn around and crawl through the opening. By the time you are right next to 
the opening, a guard should walk by. Throw a grenade under his feet and watch 
him get decimated. More guards will be alerted and run to investigate. Let 
them suffer the same fate by chucking a grenade at them. You can take out at 
least five out of the eight soldiers this way.

Go through the opening and into the building. Jump on the crates to the 
northwest to obtain the Cardboard Box A. Return to Sokolov was held and open 
the locker in the corner to get Thermal Goggles. Exit the room and in the 
corner is a Mine Detector. Pick it up, then head west. When you reach the 
stairs, go up them and get the AK-47 on the platform. From here, you can get 
a bird's eye view of most of the area. Pick off the guard who is to the left 
of you immediately.

Jump down and go back east. When you can go no further, continue north past 
some barrels. When you reach the boxes on the eastern side, bang on them to 
attract the soldier who is right on the other side of them. Kill him, then 
proceed north then west. Keep going west until you reach a dead end. Pick up 
the Zombie Face Paint. Go back to where the guard near the boxes was and aim 
towards the roof. Shoot a couple times to alert a guard on the rooftop. When 
he peeks over the edge, pop a cap in his head to take out the last soldier.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A cutscene will occur, where Ocelot gets served yet again, but by Eva this 
time in a rather painful way. Eva will crash through a gate in the northeast 
side of the area, so proceed there once the scene ends. Mission One ends 
after you leave Rassvet.

This is a big area. Start off by taking out any snakes on the coast to obtain

three portions of food. Stay towards the west side of the lake to pick up 
Smoke Grenades, White Phosphorous Grenades, and AK-47 ammo. Proceed forward 
until you see a submerged log. Dive underwater by pressing X and swim under 
the log to the other side. 

Swim to the bank, where Mk22 ammo and Grenades are waiting. Pick them up and 
continue to the ivy-covered tree on the west side. Climb up it, walk on the 
branch, and press Triangle to shimmy along the rope. Shimmy until you reach 
another hope below you. Drop by pressing X, then quickly press Triangle to 
grab onto the rope below you. Shimmy along that rope until you reach a 
platform. Drop onto it and pick up the Crocodile Cap. 

Jump off of the platform and swim to the western side of the lake. Search the 
corner and equip the Thermal Goggles to help look for two submerged boxes. 
They contain the CA-KO Camouflage and Chaff Grenades. Head back to the 
submerged log and where you found the Mk22 bullets and grenades. Continue 
past the ivy tree, but stop and equip the Thermal Goggles. Avoid the red

I enjoyed this area a lot. I don't know why, but I did. If you went the left 
path, then continue forward until an electric fence blocks your way. Look at 
the lower part of the fence on the right side. A little part it cut out. 
Crawl through to the other side. Climb the ivy tree that's ahead of you, 
climb across teh branch, and drop down on the other side of the next fence. 
Proceed a little bit, and look around. You will see a guard dog with it's 
back facing you. Shoot it in the head a couple times before it can alert any 
of the guards. 

Go east this time, and hide in the hollowed out tree trunk. Equip a camo to 
keep you hidden, such as the Tiger Stripe or Tree Bark. Bang on the tree to 
attract some guards. CQC a guard if he's alone. If not, then unleash your AK-
47 on all of them. Shake their bodies for goods, then proceed west. Avoid the 
quicksand by staying on the left side, and follow the lone guard. Stalk him, 
then CQC him if the coast is clear. Drag his body in the grass (funny, you 
can't throw bodies into quicksand). 

If guards become cautioned, hide in the grass and tranq then as they 
approach. Kill them, and backtrack towards the quicksand. Head back south, 
then turn east when the quicksand ends. Jump on the platforms and shimmy 
along the cliffside. Make sure you don't fall off, and when you reach the 
widened ledge, pick up the Splitter camo. Jump down, then proceed north. 

Walk west along the electric fence, but proceed slowly. There may be a guard
on patrol. Snipe him, and enter the opening past the electric fences. There 
shouldn't be any guards past this point. Head west and go inside the hollowed 
tree on the west side to obtain the Choco Chip camouflage. This time, take 
the right path; it makes things easier in the next area.

This level is very, very big. From the start, look straight ahead. A guard 
will be patrolling right ahead of you. CQC him when the time is right, and if 
anyone sees you, run to the ditch and dive in it. Equip Sqaure Camo to stay 
hidden, and crawl around the base. You will find Snow Face Paint and Mk22 
Ammo if you make a whole lap around. At the other side, hop out and tranq any 
nearby guards. Go left until you reach a building. 

Go inside and collect any medicinal items. Go east to the next building. I 
actually reccommend alerting guards. Run into the building on the far right, 
and when enemies open the door to get you, you'll be right there with a gun 
in their face. Do this to take out a bunch of enemies. Get all the ammo and 
such, then head south towards the helicopter. If there are any enemies, 
navigate around the helicopter and CQC or tranq them. 

Machine guns stationed in the corners of the base work well to conserve your 
ammo. navigate around the outer edges of the base, taking out any sentries on 
patrol. Then, make your way into the base. From where you started, go 
northwest until you reach a ladder. Climb up the ladder and pick up the Water 
Camo in the top-left corner of the roof. Go back down, and take out any 
enemies inside. Go back to those two huts in the eastern side of the area. 
Equip TNT, then place them on the wall with Square. 

Run out of the building, and when you're in a safe position, press Circle to
detonate and destroy the building. Do the same with the next building, and
with the helicopter. Once they are all destroyed, head north to the next area.

Walk to this area to trigger a cutscene between Snake and Ocelot. He wants to 
fight you in a one-on-one duel. Only pistols. No interference.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Ocelot 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The area for the fight will be a large canyon. Ocelot is on one side, and 
Snake is on the other. Ocelot will run beind boulders and trees while peeking 
out of the sides to shoot you. Stay behind rocks of your own and when he 
scurries by, try to get a shot or two with your M1911A1 or Mk22 for the 
stamina kill. He will stop in the middle of the open area and try to get a 
good shot on you. That's when you shoot him in the head numerous times.

Look for the hornet's nests on the trees. When Ocelot runs under a rock, 
shoot the hornet's nest above his hiding place to chase him out of hiding. 
You can get a few shots off of him when he's panicking. If you ever run out 
of ammo, head south to a tree. There are grenades high in the tree and there 
is gun ammo in the western part of the canyon. It doesn't hurt to explore for 
item when the battle is still going on.

When you take out about half of Ocelot's health, he starts getting more 
talented and instead of simply firing at you, he will ricochet shots off of 
rocks to hit you, so there aren't many places to hide and cover. If you run 
out of M1911A1 ammo entirely, then switch to the AK-47. Ocelot wants a pistol 
duel, and if you use the AK-47, he considers it to be "cheating" and his 
soldiers fire at you. If you're out of all other ammo then there is really no 
other choice than to use it.

Ocelot will take a long time to reload during the fight. If you hear the 
noise of clicking guns and such, then he's reloading. He may take a while, so 
you can even throw a grenade at a rock or tree to blast him out of hiding. The
blast will hurt him and make him run away to another location. The battle is 
not too hard, so you will probably have little trouble.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once the battle ends, another cutscene will start up. The Pain will make an 
appearance, interrupting the duel. He sends his hornets to attack everyone. 
Ocelot flees, leaving his men to die at the hands of the hornets' lethal 
stings. Snake, in an attempt to lose the bugs, takes cover and jumps into a 
crevice leading to an underground cave. That's the end of Mission 2!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This cave area is very dark, and you WILL have trouble finding out where to 
go. I will try my best to help you, but it may be confusing. I will only 
navigate you to the most important items. If you wish to find all of the 
items, then have fun wandering around.

From the start, head east to the large cavern. Walk along the western wall and 
descend through the first passageway on the left. Continue straight, and in 
between the two waterfalls is a small opening with a skeleton. Kill any crabs 
on the ground and pick up the torch and the White Phosphorous Grenade that's 
next to the skeleton. 

Equip the torch to recieve some light for navigating through the caves. 
Return to where you started, and this time, go east. Crawl on the ground 
through the small passage, killing any snakes or rats in your way. You will 
end up in another waterlogged passage.

Swim straight forward and climb on the platform. Walk to the end and collect 
the battery. Head back once again to your starting point and go east again. 
Return to the waterfall room and hug the west wall and enter through the small 
tunnel. Climb to the top, collect the Cold Medicine and Serum, then crawl 
through the passage on the east wall.

You will crawl down towards another room. Search the edges of the room to 
find night vision goggles. These make navigating through these caverns a lot 
easier, so equip it. Dive down and look for an underwater passage. Quickly 
swim through it and get back to the surface before your stamina runs out. You 
will be back to the waterlogged passage where you found the battery. 

Once again, go back to the starting point and head east. This time, go 
through the central passage in the middle of the large cavern. Go up through 
the tunnel, and you will be back in the waterfall room, but on an upper 
level. Go north and stay on the upper level. Proceed north to enter another 
tunnel to your next area. (man, that's a lot of backtracking!)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once you enter, there will be two paths to take. Head right, through the 
narrow passage. Crawl through, and collect the M37 and Mk22 ammo. There are a 
bunch of crabs and frogs, so eat away. Crawl on, and collect the Snow 
Camouflage. The tunnel will continue on, so when you're out of the tight 
space, turn around. There will be some ammo scattered in the open area. Pick 
it up, then turn back around and proceed north. 

You will enter a sunlit cave, with water everywhere and an island in the 
center. Snake will enter, and The Pain will make his entrance, attacking you 
with hornets. He will land on the island in the center, and Snake jumps in 
the water to avoid the hornets. IT'S ON!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: The Pain
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Pain will take his place on the central island for the whole battle. You 
should stay in the water for a large portion of the battle. The Pain likes to 
talk to himself a lot in this battle, which actually makes it easier. For 
example, if he says "Tommygun!", then stay under the water. The Pain will 
pull out a Tommygun and start shooting you, even if you're under the water. 
Swim halfway around the poll and he'll surely be done firing at you. 

When he yells "Grenade!", he'll take out a grenade and use his hornet friends 
to carry it to you. When The Pain does say this, hop onto the surrounding 
rock structures and fire at The Pain with an AK-47 or M1911A1. He will just 
stand there, waiting for the hornets to drop the grenade at you; he's pretty 
much a sitting duck.

After you damage The Pain a bit, he will gather his hornets and make a shield 
around him. You can take out the hornet shield with some M37 shots, grenades, 
White Phosphorous Grenades, or Stun Grenades. Hop into the water and look for 
ammo or food if needed.

Sometimes The Pain will ask himself where you are. If he can't find you, wait 
underwater with your Water Camo on and he will walk around the edge of the 
island and bend over. Equip the Thermal Goggles to see him better and pop in 
some shots from underwater. Always look at your stamina while underwater. Your 
health will decreasure if you run out of stamina.

The Pain also makes mirror images of himself. If you shoot the decoy, it will 
give away your position and you'll be attacked. Equip the Thermal Goggles and 
shoot the one with the body hit for a surefire way to hurt The Pain.

Once half of The Pain's health has been depleted, he will start shooting 
hornets out of his mouth! These are bullet bees and as the name implies, they 
should be treated like bullets. If you get hit by one, you have to use the 
same cure treatment as a gunshot wound. Quickly swim around the island to 
avoid these attacks.

Remember, ammo can be found underwater and on the surrounding rock structures. 
There's also many fish to find, so there's plenty of food in this area. Once 
you've deplete all of The Pain's health, the hornet-loving freak will be done 
for. He explodes, letting you continue your way out of the cave.

This is a very straightforward area. Walk along through the cave. There will 
be a point where you decend down a rocky pathway. make sure you don't fall 
down into the pit below, or you're dead. Continue through, and hug the right 
wall to find an alcove. If you didn't pick up the Metal Detector in Rassvet, 
it's in the alcove. There will be a small cavern on the left side, with two 
Claymores on the ground. Shoot them and pick up the various ammo on the 
ground. Proceed north out of the cave.

Being spotted isn't a particularly good thing here, because they signal for 
hovercraft guards to take you out. Stay low in the water. When you reach the 
dock, swim under the dock and aim for a good shot. Stay angled, and when a 
guard starts to patrol the dock, tranq him in the head. Find the other guard 
not far away and tranq him too. You can kill them both once the area is safe. 

Climb onto the concrete platforms and watch out for the cobalt blue 
tarantulas. They're venomous, but provide little stamina recovery. A good use 
for them is to tranq one and capture it. At any time, throw it at an enemy's 
feet so it can bite and poison them.

Head into the weapons storeroom to find a plethora of supplies, including the 
main reason for why I told you to come here: the SVD. If you got this weapon 
in the beginning of the game, coming to this area was well worth it, and it 
will be used in an important battle a little later in the game. ^_~ Go back to

 Cheap Bastards Tip
 ------------------
 Hey, do you want to *NOT* fight a boss later in the game. Well, you 
 sharpshooters may have a chance to! You saw that creepy old guy in the 
 wheelchair featured in the cinema about two seconds ago, right? That's The 
 End, and you can kill him off early in the game, totally preventing this boss
 fight from happening! 

 Once the cinema ends, equip the SVD and check out the dock. Snipe the lowly 
 fools on the dock, and look for a guard pushing The End in his wheelchair. 
 You gotta be very quick, so shoot the guy pushing the wheelchair. Proceed 
 shooting the wheelchair until it blows up, killing The End. There you go, you
 cheap bastard, you just prevented a boss fight from ever happening! But I 
 must say, there will indeed be a surprise for you when you get to the point 
 in which you were supposed to fight The End.

Okay, that's the end of that. Let's rewind a bit. Once you start in the area,
snipe the guards on the dock. They're radio men, and they will call for 
backup if you are seen or heard. There are about three, so when they are done
for, swim to the boats. They carry some ammo. Pick all of it up, then proceed
down the dock and into the warehouse. Not too hard, eh?

I found this place to be somewhat hard to not be spotted in, but I have a 
strategy. When you first walk up to the first flight of stairs, stick a TNT 
on the wall. Now proceed through the doorway and down the stairs, looking to 
avoid any guards. If one calls for reinforcements, run back to where you 
stuck the TNT. Shielded guards will come and run up the stairs towards you. 
Press O when you have the TNT equipped to detonate it and blast the whole lot 
of reinforcements. 

Go back down the stairs and take out one or two guards. Head west to the 
wall, then south down a corridor where you can find the Desert Face Paint. Go 
back up north, and look up with your sniper rifle. Look up the flights of 
stairs to a balcony high up. Snipe the guard on the balcony, then proceed up 
the stairs. On the second floor, check the room in the corner for food 
supplies and a mousetrap. Head up to the third floor then out to the exit.

This whole area, which is quite large, is also enemy free and booby trapped

until you find the second guard. Tranq him as well, then continue west. There 
will be a Taiwanese cobra in the bushes. Kill it and avoid it's bite. There 
will be a hole in the fence; crawl through. Proceed north and collect the

Once on the other side of the fence, kill the two guards before they wake up. 
Proceed east and then north. Once you reach the door, press against it and

them, then shake all of the guards' bodies.

Head near the trucks, then walk down the path. Crawl in the grass, and you 
should see vents along the wall. Crawl in a vent and take the left way to the

Proceed closer to him, trying to face the other way. Once close enough, as in 
close enough to perform a CQC, use the Cigar Gas Spray on him. He will be 
knocked out. Open a cabinet and stuff his body inside. If you're a risktaker, 
you can silently knife him to death. 

Head through the next doorway. More scientists! Once again, don't face them 
and inch closer and closer to take them out. If a scientist does notice you, 
switch camos and tranq him before he signals the alarm at the end of the room. 
Dash into the next room and through the next doorway for another cinema. A

This place can be tricky, since there is a balcony showing the first floor.

Once you enter the area, another cinema will occur. A dart will come your 
way, finding it's way into Snake's thigh. As he hobbles behind a tree, he's 
bombarded by more arrows. A menacing laughter comes from the trees as a lanky 
shape drops to the ground. It's the next member of the Cobra Unit: The Fear. 
With his crossbow aimed, he's poised and ready to fight!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: The Fear
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As soon as the battle starts, cure yourself of the nasty arrow wound and the 
poisoning. The Fear will turn invisible, leaping from tree to tree like a 
crazed monkey. The only way to fight this goon is to use Thermal Goggles. Keep 
them equipped at all times. Since The Fear maneuvers around the area with such 
speed, he will always be able to see you. Heck, you can equip any camo you 
want, and it won't help you in this battle. 

As The Fear hops along the treetops, search for him in First-Person Mode and 
blast him once he stops momentarily. It's hard to see or know when he's 
attacking you with your Thermal Goggles on, because it's hard to see or hear 
the arrows. You can listen for him when he pulls the arrow back, kind of how a 
bow and arrow sounds like. Always open the cure menu to check if you have any 
injuries. The traps from before are still in tact and they can hurt you.

Continue blasting at him with your AK-47 or XM16E1. After a bit of fighting, 
The Fear will start complaining and searches for food. He'll sometimes shoot 
food from the treetops, then hop onto the ground and eat it to regain stamina. 
If you have any poisonous animals (living ones), throw them on the ground and 
they might attack The Fear as he gathers food. Sometimes, he eats rotten food 
and his stamina will go down and he will be stunned. 

The Fear will also become uninvisible for a short time, so use that as an 
opportunity to take him out and continue mauling him with some sort of
automatic weapon. You can also run up to him and blast him with your M37 
shotgun. The Fear doesn't have many attacks or tactics other than shooting 
you with arrows. The Fear will go down rather quickly; he's probably the 
easiest of the Cobra Unit.

- SITHDUKE says:
  What I do first is just to the left of your starting location is a tree with
  two mushrooms and a 2nd tree with a third mushroom just left of that one.
  These are idea to keep The Fear from collecting his own food and
  regenerating his stamina. If you shoot/kick them from the tree's base he'll
  automatically want your food instead of hunting his own. When The Fear
  consumes them he'll be poisoned and you'll also have enough time to kick him
  a few times while he's collecting the food. This is an ideal strategy if
  you're going for a stamina kill.

Once again, you are in the warehouse, but for a short time. Continue down the

he didn't see you, try to get him with a tranquilizer dart. If you want to 
speed out of the whole warehouse, jump off of the balcony on the top floor 
and run south to the entrance stairs, run up, and go through the orange-red

This a fairly large area, and it's pretty hard to navigate through. If you 
take the right path, it's much easier and you won't have to deal with as many 
guards. It's one long narrow passage. Be very careful, because this dense 
jungle makes the guards really hard to find. Put on the Thermal Goggles here 
and there to check if any camouflaged guards are nearby. The Anti-Personnel 
Sensor really helps here too. Crawl throught a lot of the area, as you can 
easily hide in the tall grass and numerous tree trunks.

Equipping the Thermal Goggles and sniping guards far away defeats the caution 
throughout some of the area. Cautiously take out guard by guard while 
crawling in the tall grass with a well camouflaged outfit. When you get to a 
large area, equip the Thermal Goggles. There will be a pitfall trap waiting 
right in front of the ammo. Navigate around the pit and get the ammo. When 
the road forks, take the right path.

if not, he will signal for help.

CQC him, then if the second guard possibly hears or sees you, take him out 
however you want. Since the radioman is dead, you can alert guards and they 
won't call for backup. Go north and stop at the first right. Start going east 
a little bit, but not all the way out into the clearing. 

Check out the cabin; guards are stationed on the porch. Take out all of them 
and go north again until you can go no further. Go left and slide down the 
hill towards the small shack. Collect the food inside, and blow it up if 
you'd like with the TNT. Go into the main cabin once the guards on the porch

 Cheap Bastards Tip, Part 2
 --------------------------
 If you killed The End back in Ponizovje Warehouse: Exterior, you will have to
 face a whopping 20 Ocelot guards! Have fun, you cheap bastard you. ^_~

If you decided to play fair and spare The End back at the warehouse, then you
will meet up with the old timer here in Sokrovenno South. The End, perched on
one of his many sniper posts, will wake up and begin talking to Snake. This is
the start of the very best boss battle in the game. Heck, it's one of the best
boss fights in a video game, hands down! This is the battle with The End.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: The End
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay, this is certainly one of the highpoints of the game. The battle with 
The End isn't just a "he's there, you're here, shoot each other" battle: it's 
a test of endurance. You must be patient in the battle with The End; don't be 
surprised if this battle takes over an hour long, even on Normal Mode.

The fight takes place along three humongous areas; all part of a dense jungle: 
Sokrovenno South, Sokrovenno West, and  Sokrovenno North. As you may now 
already, The End is a master sniper, so you guessed it: this is a sniping 
battle.

The forest is VERY dense, and The End will be stationed at specific sniper 
spots to fight you. You can vie those sniper spots on the map. Speaking of 
the map, you must use the map constantly to win. The End actually shoots 
tranquilizer darts which decrease your stamina rapidly if not cured.

A simple survival knife will fully cure you, but if your stamina runs out, The 
End will capture you and throw you in jail all the way back at Graniny Gorki 
Lab. All enemies will reappear normally, so you can't simply run back here.

Because of stamina being such a big importance in this battle, you will find 
many different animals in the three areas, which respawn once killed. You can 
even shoot and kill The End's pet parrot, which can be found in a tree near 
the weapon supply shack in Sokrovenno South.

The Thermal Goggles are a hassle to use because there is so much animal and 
plant life that actually sensing The End will be near impossible. He is also a 
master of camouflage, so occasionally you will be shot at without even knowing 
where he is. 

Some pure giveaways is his weapon. The scope on his sniper rifle will reflect 
sunlight, possibly giving away his location. If it starts raining, you know 
that the old man has fallen asleep. Run around the areas to all the sniper 
points, listening for any noises. He snores quite loudly, so if you hear 
snores, look at the closest sniper points to possibly find him and get the 
upper hand.

If The End ever says something, that means he's about to or already fired 
upon you. Once the first of his shots have been fired, open up the map 
immediately. His location will be revealed as a red circle. That should help 
you find out where he is and target him. You have one of two options: snipe 
him if you know his exact location or run towards his sniper point and attack 
him close hand or hold him up.

To hold up The End, point your gun at him and Snake will tell him to freeze. 
He will most likely refuse and run away. If you hold him up one more time at 
another point, The End will give you his Moss Camouflage. If you want the 
camo, you can also get it by depleting his stamina. This can be really easy, 
since the old geezer loses stamina over time; going from point to point. Once 
you think it's low enough, unload your Mk22 on him to take out his stamina 
completely. 

But beware, if The End's health or stamina is low, he will use the power of 
the forest (yeah, sounds cheesy) to regain all of his health and stamina! 
Prevent this by not letting him out of your sight. This can be a pain to do, 
because The End is surprisingly quick. Look around on the ground. The End 
leaves his footprints in the mud, so technically you can track him down 
through the whole battle. It's tricky, but always try to stay on his tail.

Very rarely will you actually encounter The End running from sniper point to 
sniper point. I'm glad to say that I did at one point in the fight. If you 
ever end up being close to the guy or see him in the corner of your eye, wail 
on him with shotgun bullets or snipe him if he is far away.

The End also throws stun grenades at you in a ground battle and runs away. If 
he steps in the mud, you can track him down easier. Ammo will be scarce and 
there's limited ammo in the weapons supply room. (I ended up having only one 
SVD bullet left when the battle was over!)

This is the type of battle whether you either love or hate. Some of the more
inexperienced players may have a lot of trouble in this battle, where experts 
may find themselves restarting the game just to replay the fight with The 
End! And because I found this battle to be incredibly unique and innovative, 
I have some users give me their tips, tricks, and their strategies for this 
stunning battle.

- LuigiandYoshiFan says:
  Wear the Mask, the scientist suit, torch, and any other ways of making
  yourself visible. Then when you've got his attention check the map. It will 
  give you his location. When you go there however he will have moved. Either 
  snipe him with the SVD you found or run as fast as you can to his current 
  location then hunt him down via thermal gogs. After that you wanna whipe out 
  your favorite weapon (in terms of accuracy and damage) this way you don't 
  have to worry about hunting blindly and several times.

- cheatachu72 says: 
  Spin around in circles until The End shoots at you. Get down, get to where
  he is, hold him up, get moss camo, get three headshots, turn away while he
  throws a flashbang, follow footprints with thermal goggles, rinse and
  repeat. The Fake Death Pill works once by letting him come to you and
  getting a free hit for you. I went into the weapons shack using the FDP 3
  times and it screwed up his lines. Five minutes later he said, "Think I
  can't tell the difference between a Fake Death and a real one?"

- VictimToDie4 says:
  My way of taking down the end was to use the Directional Microphone to find
  out what general direction he's in then go towards him using the crawl
  stalk. Then reapeat the Directional Microphone part again to pinpoint even 
  closer. When you do find him get right up behind him and wait. I usually go 
  for the stamina kill so i wait untill his stamina goes down to the point
  where he regains him stamina. Then i shoot him. After that i just keep
  finding him and just take him out. Not the quickest way but works for me.

- GinsuKnight says:
  When it rains, it seems that his stamina goes down all on its own, and
  sometimes makes him fall asleep. I was in the river map (west area) and saw
  Z's floating up from him almost all the way across the map. I just ran the
  long way around and held him up before he awoke. Worked well... course, he
  snuck up on ME about 5 minutes later and i got thrown in the pokey. Oh, and
  dont forget that using a big/loud gun (M63 comes to mind) to hold him up
  works well too. He refused to give up the camo, so I shot around his head a
  dozen times, and he gave it up on the spot.

- Graeme777 says:
  Always shoot him 3 times. And learn the map. Some places are better than
  others which The End will use more often. Also, watch out for the light
  reflecting off his scope. Sometimes it can be a full blown lens flare
  effect, other times just a flash.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With a lot of time and patience, The End will meet his end. The mission will 
also come to an end, where Mission 7 starts up after you reach the exit, 
which is found in the northeast corner of Sokrovenno North.

There isn't anything to do here. Proceed north until you get to a ladder. 
*sigh* ZOMG it's the ladder boss!!!! Okay, not really. It is just a normal
ladder, but it will probably take you several minutes to climb. Yeah, boring,
I know. At least they play epic music during the struggle. Climb up the

As soon as you enter the area, switch to Choco Chip camo and Desert Face 
Paint. You may need it for a while, so use it now to be safe. Get the itmes 
in the corner, then go west and slide down the hill. Kill the cobra that's in 
front of you; watch out for it's bite. When you come upon the large cliffside 
area, take a couple steps out in the open. 

Equip your SVD and look on the right wall. There should be a soldier standing 
on the high ledge. Snipe him first; he has an RPG-7: a very powerful rocket 
launcher. Once you snipe him, slowly proceed north. Guards are pacing the 
area in low trenches. Once you are out of their sight, go in the trench and 
CQC them. There are only about two or three of them, but if they call backup, 
many more guards come. 

If they do call for backup, run to the large boulder on the western side of 
the cliffside. There's some crawl space to hide in. You can chuck grenades at 
a group of guards' feet to take them all out in one blow. You might want to 
stay low, because the reinforcements have RPG-7s.

Once everyone's gone, collect the goods by shaking the bodies. Vultures will 
be feasting on the dead bodies, so if you're low on food, these guys are 
sitting ducks. Take them out as well, and collect more supplies scattered 
around the area before you proceed to the second mountainous area.

This is an extremely hard area if you won't sneak by and just kill everyone 
in sight. If you destroyed the helicopter back in Bolshaya Past Base with the 
TNT, then hovercraft guards patrol the area. Usually one patrols the area and 
the rest are used for backup if needed. Equip the SVD when you enter and aim 
to the left a bit. If you look up the pathway, there should be a guard 
patrolling right where you would walk up next. Snipe him, then go north and 
walk up the said pathway. 

There is a cave found here that's pretty good for hiding. Enter through the 
doorway to find some items and a cobra. Avoid it's bite and kill/tranq it. 
There is also a crawlspace that leads to the side of the mountain, which is 
also a good escape route. DO NOT KILL THE HOVERCRAFT GUARD. 

If you do, people will radio for backup, and a seemingly endless wave of 
hovercraft guards and normal guards will come to take you out. It's not worth 
it. Just avoid him, as you sneak up the pathway. Once you exit the cave and 
go east up the other path, duck behind the rock. If there are any guards, 
your best strategy is to tranq them and kill them with your knife or silenced 
pistol. 

You will reach a turret. There really is no need to use it, because if the 
hovercraft guards hears you, then you're pretty much done. Same with the 
helicopter; if you take it out, another one will come. Just ignore it and 
proceed north, towards the three bunkers. 

Make sure the hovercraft is far away before you snipe the patrolling guards 
up near the bunkers. Check all of the bunkers for a plethora of items and 
weapons, including the RPG-7. There is one more guard, well, guarding the 
exit. Take him out by any means. If he alerts anyone, you can easily escape 
in time before any other guard sees you. Exit the area by proceeding north.

There's alway a helicopter patrolling the area here, no matter what. It can 
be handy if you "use" it correctly. If you want to snipe enemies or run, make 
sure to do it when the helicopter is above you, so the helicopter drowns out 
any sound you make. This proves essential for sniping guards here.

First off, there is a lone guard walking down towards you when you enter the 
area. Hide behind the crates at the start, then CQC him. Snipe any visible 
guards who are looking off cliffsides or ledges. Once again, make sure you 
snipe them when the helicopter if overhead. 

To be safe, travel through the trenches to reach the shacks in this area. 
There are mounted turrets, but DO NOT SHOOT DOWN THE HELICOPTER! The alert 
meter will come up, and the helicopter will strike back, using machine gun 
fire and a barrage of missiles to take you down.

Helicopters will probably kill you, and even if you do destroy it, another one
will arrive to take its place. It's a lose-lose situation for you, so just
avoid the thought at all costs. With that said, there really isn't much use of
the turrets, unless you have a good eye and decide to save SVD ammo and take
out the guards that way. 

The shack to the right has some ammo and grenades. Proceed through the 
trenches. Most of the guards stay up on the land, so in certain parts you can 
jump out and get them. It's better to just avoid them. You should reach 
another shack on your way to the northern side of the area. This place has a 
lot more ammo, TNT, and Claymores. 

Leave, and head west through the trenches. The top shack has a bunch of 
medical supplies, including bandages, suture kits, and ointment. Head est 
from the medical shack through the other trench. Keep going east, then go 
south with the trenches. The winding path ends up going north again, where 
there will be a doorway. Open the door and go inside to have another cutscene 
with Eva.

helicopter to take you out. Don't even bother with them. Just go back into 
the cabin. You can find some noodles and a lot of ammo in the rooms. Exit the 
cabin and head back to the mountaintop.

Flamethrower guards, yay! You heard me, now guards with flamethrowers have 
been positioned on the mountaintop. No worries, you won't be here for long. 
Go south from the cabin through the trenches. When the trench goes west, keep 
on the lookout for a flamethrower guard patrolling close by. You can either 
take him out the quiet, sneaky way, or you can shoot the fuel tank on his 
back for a quick kill. If you do shoot the fuel tank, it'll explode, 
revealing your hiding space. 

Choose either way you want. After taking him out, go up the ledge on the 
southern side of where you were just standing to get out of the trenches. 
Head down south a little bit and you should find a red door. The key that Eva 
gave you opens that door. Unlock the red door and go inside.

                                                        and down the stairs. 
In the cutscene, Snake will be patrolling the dark corridors. He hears a loud,
clanking noise, but he can't tell where. The Fury comes around a corner, and
blasts his flamethrower towards the ceiling, dropping bats like flies. He
flies up on his jetpack and shoots right towards Snake. Boss time!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: The Fury
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Fury will fly right over your head once the battle starts. Run to the 
north and get on the ledge. You will be fighting this battle in six long 
corridors. They are very dark, so Thermal Goggles are important here. Pace 
the ledge, looking down each corridor for The Fury. Make sure you have your 
Thermal Goggles on to help you spot his black suit in the darkness. When you 
find him, equip your SVD and shoot him about three times. He will fall to the 
ground and curse/shout.

Run to the other side quickly, because when he gets up, he'll charge to where 
the gunshot was emitted and blast the area with his flamethrower. Never fight 
The Fury close up unless you're good with the knife. You can actually slice 
open his suit, stunning him and making him get hurt by the flames. The Fury 
is surprisingly, quick, too. If you ever find him behind you, dive roll into 
him to knock him down, then get the heck away from him.

Run down one of the corridors and just try to make things hard for the guy. 
Try to stay away from the south side of the area, because there is a pit 
which makes things a lot easier for The Fury. He can easily charge into you 
and watch as you go careening down into the pit. After you hit him a good 
five to six times, he'll get really angry. 

The Fury won't pace the corridors anymore, he will use his jetpack to fly 
around each of them, giving you barely any time to snipe him. If The Fury 
ever gets you with his flamethrower, dive to get the flames off of you and 
cure yourself with Ointment and a Bandage. If at any point in the battle The 
Fury seems are away, he'll engage a countdown. When he gets to zero, he will 
activate his jetpack and use himself as a battering ram, crashing right into 
you. When you hear him count, run inbetween the corridors.

There are also a lot of barrels in the area, so use them to your advantage. 
If you'd like to save bullets, shoot a barrel that's close to The Fury. The 
explosive barrels damage the guy more than your guns. When you deplete at 
least three-quarters of his health, The Fury's patterns are nearly 
unpredictable. Once he finds you, he'll usually point that out to you by 
saying something like, "There you are!". So if you hear that, dive roll into 
him or run away.

Since he travels so fast now, close combat is basically all you can do now. 
Either way, sniping is out of the picture. Right when he gets up after a dive 
roll, pump him with your shotgun before he can whip out his flamethrower. If 
The Fury says that his suit is ripped, then he will be momentarily stunned. 
Lash out on him at this point and try to hide right after a successful 
attack. The Fury will be smoked in no time. (Haha, I made a funny.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With that battle done, there's no more Cobras left (other than The Boss, of 
course). After the sweet cinema though, the tunnel is sealed off, so no 
backtracking for you! Proceed forward, collecting the medical supplies, and 
now you can finally get out of this dang tunnel!

When you start in this insanely huge area (it's composed of several parts), 
you will be near a stack of crates. Collect the items on the lower floor then 
jump on top of the boxes. A guard will be patrolling very close nearby. 
Crouch on top of the highest box and tranq him when his back is turned. Kill 
him, and you might as well leave his body there; there aren't any enemies 
patrolling nearby. 

Go east until you reach a truck. Bang on the back of the truck to attract a 
nearby guard, and wait for him to walk around the truck to the back of it. Go 
around the front of the truck and get behind him when he's investigating 
where the noise came from. CQC him and leave his body there as well. 

Now turn around and go north, past the large storage sheds. A guard will be 
patrolling the north side. Use the sheds to hide behind him and CQC the enemy 
when you have the oportunity. Dash to the east behind the three sheds. Take 
out the next guard patrolling those sheds. Go through the northwest door in 
the cornet to head towards the northwest quadrant.

If you happen to see "zzz" on the screen, then a sleeping dog is nearby.
Tiptoe past them to avoid waking them up nad making things harder for you.
Hide behind the first armored cars. Once the guard is standing still on the
left side of the cars on the far west. Snipe or tranq him, then go north past
the dog. 

Take out two more guards by sniping them. They are right next to each other, 
so one is bound to see you if you get close. Go up the stairs on the right 
for some ammo, then descend them and continue north. The north shack has some 
nice ammo and TNT, so stock up. Go all the way back down to where you 
entered. It's best to clear out all of the areas before proceeding any 
further. Go to the eastern door near where you came in.

Upon entering, hide behind the structure. From here, you can snipe about 4 of 
the guards patrolling this area, which makes things a lot easier. If anyone 
calls reinforcements, head east and wait at the door behind the shed. When 
people come through the door, whip out your RPG-7 and let them all have it.

Keep doing this until all the reinforcements are dead. Go east from the shed 
until you reach another shed. From there, go north and take out the guard 
around the corner. Go into the shack to get some food and go back south. You 
should be right in front of a door; go inside it.

the alleyway, and do not pick up the box there! Save it for later, when you 
really need it.

Head back to where you took out the first guard to find another one. Duck 
behind the metal rods and CQC him when he turns around. Go ALL THE WAY BACK to 
Groznyj Grad Northwest and hop inside the truck at the far north of the area.

stay out of the room Raikov goes in. There's a scientist in there, and just 
like Graniny Gorki Lab, if one sees you, they will alert the guards. 

Follow him up the stairs when he leaves and into the upstairs room. He will 
walk south near a bunch of lockers. Keep on his tail and unequip the uniform 
to CQC  him. A cinema will be triggered, showing Snake stuffing Raikov's body
in a locker. You will get his uniform. You can press Triangle to salute to 
guards when they salute to you. Equip the Officer Uniform and the Raikov Mask

In the cinema, make sure to hold L2 and/or R2 so Snake doesn't take damage 
from Volgin. After the cinema, Snake is trapped in a prison cell with a guard 
keeping a close eye on him. You actually have a number of ways to escape:

 OPTION 1: In the previous cutscene, if you pressed R1 at the desired time, 
           you saw The Sorrow holding up a sign with a radio signal on it. 
           That radio signal is 144.75. Use it to open the cell door. The 
           guard, confused, rushes in. You can now proceed to fork him to 
           death (I've always wanted to say that). 

 OPTION 2: Use a Fake Death Pill to "die". The guard will open the cell door 
           and inspect Snake. use the Revival Pill to wake up, then kill the
           guard with your fork or bare hands.

 OPTION 3: The guard will throw food into Snake's cell. Like the hardass 
           that you are, simply throw back the food at him. He will eat the
           food instead. Occasionally, the food is rotten, and the sentry will
           hurry off to the little guard's room. Dial in the radio frequency,
           and go to the bathroom and take out the guard by surprise. I don't
           recommend this option, because the food isn't always rotten.

 OPTION 4: This is just like Option 3, well, kinda. Proceed to throw back 
           the guard gives to you. If the food isn't rotten, he will consume
           three or four of them. A funny cutscene will start, with the guard
           talking about his family. He holds up a picture of his family. When
           the R1 icon comes up, press it to look at the back of the card to
           see the radio frequency: 144.75. He will also give you Cigar Gas
           Spray. Why? I don't know. When the scene ends, stand as close to 
           the bars as you can and use the gas on the sentry. He will fall
           asleep, and you can open the door and fork him to death.

 OPTION 5: This one is incredibly simple, but lame and boring. Crawl under 
           the bed and hide there for a bit. The idiotic guard will wonder
           where you went and will panic. He will open the door and go inside
           to look for you. Crawl out from under the bed and kill him with 
           your trusty fork.

 OPTION 6: Another painfully easy one, yet quite funny. You may have realized
           that Snake can throw up. To do so, open the cure menu and rotate 
           the right analog to make Snake spin. Do this for about a minute and
           exit the screen. When you control Snake again, walk around a little
           bit and he should throw up. If you happen to do this while the
           guard is looking, he'll ask if you're alright and say something
           like, "Ew, did you just throw up?". The guard will enter the cell, 
           where you can proceed to catch him by surprise and fork him.

Leave the facility by going through the room right next to your cell, exiting 
through the southern door, and going through the second door on the left. Now 
you'll be back in Groznyj Grad Southeast. All the enemies will reappear, but 
hurry through the areas instead of taking them out. Don't even bother 
tranquing them. 

Go through the north door, then go through the east door when in the 
northeast section. You will end up in the northwest section. Go near the 
truck where you went inside to get to the weapons lab. Instead, hug the left 
wall and go through the small opening. Crawl under the pipes and open the 
trap door on the ground north from where you entered: this leads to the 
sewers.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head down the stairs, collecting ammo and items as you go. On the floor, go 
north through the sewage and muck. When you reach a dead end, crawl through 
the space on the left side. There will probably be guard dogs on each end, so 
whip out your SAA to take them out. The right side contains some SAA Bullets.

Once at the end of the corridor, crawl through the space on the right wall. 
You will be in a section with a lot more water, enabling you to swim and dive 
in it. Collect the styptic and food on the bottom floor under the water. You 
will have to go under another crawl space on the left, so walk through until 
more bars block your path, like the other passage. 

Crawl through the hole on the right and continue going east. Watch out for 
the guard dogs here; take them out with your gun. Go north towards the light, 
and another cinema will be triggered. Snake is cornered by Ocelot and some 
guards. In front of Snake are the bad guys, and behind Snake is a waterfall.

He jumps off of the waterfall to avoid Ocelot and swims down a river. Snake
meets a strange foe, whom you might have seen several times before in the 
game. He's The Sorrow, and he is one strange foe.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: The Sorrow
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This really isn't a  boss fight, but since there is a boss meter, I guess 
it's an exception. The funny thing is that the boss meter is empty at the 
start of the battle! That's because The Sorrow is a ghost, and everyone knows 
that you can't kill someone that's already dead. The Sorrow will resurrect 
EVERY SINGLE ENEMY YOU HAVE KILLED. That means if you're a stealth master and 
haven't killed many guards, then this fight will be boring. If you're like me 
and probably killed everyone so far, then this might take a while.

As you tread upstream, ghosts of the dead enemies will be coming toward you. 
Some will merely walk past you, ignoring you completely. Most of them though 
will try to get their revenge and take out Snake. If Snake touches a ghost, 
then his life meter will start to get drained. Ghosts are slow, so they are 
pretty easy to maneuver around.

The Sorrow shoots out strange beams of energy at you. Technically, they don't 
hurt you, but it will knock Snake down if he's hit. If you get knocked down 
with a ground of ghosts around you, you'll be hurting. The beam is incredibly 
slow when shot, so you should have no trouble moving to the other side of the 
river to dodge it. 

You can shoot the ghosts to momentarily stun them as they emit an ear-
piercing scream. That proves to be very useful when a wall of ghosts is 
moving towards you. You will also come across the bosses as you make your way 
through. They aren't any different from the normal ghosts; just shoot them 
and proceed.

At the end of the river, you will come across The Sorrow's corpse. After a 
couple of seconds, Snake will drop dead. Don't press continue though, open 
your item screen and use a Revival Pill. It is just a lame trick by The 
Sorrow. If you press continue, then you will have to start the fight over 
again. After you use the Revival Pill, the "battle" ends. You get the Spirit 
Camouflage for beating this ghastly Cobra member.

You should have little problem with this area if you removed the transmitter 
already. If not, Ocelot guards will swarm the area. Go east past the small 
stream to go on the other side of it. Go north and you will reach a log. Go 
across it and you will end up on the other side of the stream again. Continue 
north up to the waterfall. When you get to it, walk around on the right side

You will start off in a nice place; on the western side of the area. Equip 
the Spirit Camouflage (this is probably now be your most used camo). It's 
like the Splitter; with that blue-gray color, but it masks your footsteps so 
enemies can't hear them, no matter how close you are. Run north past the 
tanks and take out the lone guard nearby. He's the only one in this pathway. 
Like before, reach the truck in the northern part of the area. Equip

who forgot) to find Sneaking Camouflage. It reduces all damage by half, but 
it's not very good camouflage style. Check the locker across from the one 
with the red stripe to find the Maintenance Uniform. Put it on now without 
any face paint. Go into the door on the left.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head west down the long corridor. Go north and enter the hallway where those 
two guards were; right before Sokolov's chamber. Pick up the Life Medicine 
and suppressors, then go back to the long corridor. Remeber that door that I 
told you to remember? Use Key C on it to unlock it and enter the Shagohod's 
hangar. You must plant four pieces of C3 on the four fuel tanks.

There are two on both sides of the Shagohod. So, there's one to the northwest, 
northeast, southwest, and southeast. Once again, avoid all maintenance 
members, because they are like scientists; they squeal. There are normal 
guards here, so don't act suspicious, like dive roll or bump into them. 

Go down the stairs and avoid the lone maintenance guy. Go to the west to the 
staircase and go up it. There is another staircase that leads up to a rafter. 
Walk past it, then put the C3 on the fuel tank right next to the stairs. Do 
down the next flight of stairs to your right towards the trucks.

Go north and plant the C3 on the second fuel tank. Crawl under the trucsk to 
find Instant Noodles and another Life Medicine. Go east, and you should run 
into the third fuel tank, which is behind a wall. Go around the wall and plant 
C3 on it, then go south up the ramp. 

The last fuel tank is more south, so continue until you see it, and plant the 
last C3 piece on it. Volgin will spot you, where The Boss and Ocelot tag 
along with him. They have captured Tatyana, who is really the spy. (if you 
haven't figured it out, she is Eva).

Volgin will challenge Snake to a one-on-one match, not knowing that the C3 is 
planted. If you press R1 at the desired time, you can see The Sorrow holding 
up a sign telling you how much more time there is until the C3 blows. Volgin 
lowers the platforms where the two of you are standing, and Ocelot watches 
from above.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Volgin
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is an incredibly easy battle, despite Volgin acting like a total badass 
throughout the whole game. Ocelot will actually give you ammo through the 
battle. There is a five minute time limit, but you should have more than 
enough time to finish him. Take off the Maintenance camo and switch to 
Sneaking. Equip any gun, and this will tempt Volgin to shoot an electric 
blast at you. 

If he hits you with your gun equipped, the gun will go off, wasting precious 
ammo and hurting you. Unequip it right before he's going to shoot, then run 
behind him. When the beam stops, unload your M37 shotgun on his back. You can 
only hurt his back, for he uses a shield to protect the front of his body. 
Repeat this simple process until you take out half of his health.

Now Volgin will use different electric attacks. He will fire a rapid stream 
of electricity at you. You can run from side to side to dodge it, then get 
behind him and blast his back. He'll use another electric attack: when he 
clasps his hands together and fires a beam. A very good method is to shoot 
the pipes above Volgin. Water will come gushing out on top of him. This hurts 
him and gives you an opportunity to strike as well. 

To make things easier, use Russian Glowcaps and Chaff Grenades to divert his
electric attacks. Volgin will sometimes go to a circuit box and "recharge". 
Since he has his back facing you, blast him when he is getting his energy
back. With Ocelot constantly helping you and the simplicity of this fight, you 
should not have a problem. If you deplete Volgin's stamina, the Cold War
Camouflage is yours.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ah, now it's time for one of the coolest parts in the game. Snake escapes the 
pit, and the C3 goes off, with Snake still inside the hangar! The building is 
being destroyed, with guards scrambling for their lives. Snake finds an exit, 
so he rushes out into the open.

Eva comes over with her motorcycle, and Snake jumps on. They start to speed 
away, but wait. What's that?! The Shagohod with Volgin at it's controls comes 
crashing through the hangar, still in one piece. The Shagohod wheels towards 
the motorcycle, so Eva and Snake bolt out of it's reach!

Once in Eva's motorcycle, you can equip and fire ammo, but the best part is 
that you have unlimited ammo! Eva will speed through all of Groznyj Grad and 
will stop at certain points to take out guards. Equip your RPG-7 or some type 
of automatic, like AK-47 or M63. Let the bullets fly as you take each guard 
one by one. When an area is cleared out, she'll move on to another area.

Take out all the guards and repeat this process until a cinema comes up. Eva 
and Snake will bust through a gate into the runway, and the Shagohod crawls 
towards the runway, destroying everything in it's path, even killing their 
own men.

Equip the RPG-7 for this area. Guards in motorcycles will start chasing you. 
Aim for the front of their vehicles with your rockets, so when the rocket 
gets to their motorcycle, they will hit it dead on. You will have to use a 
tactical reload to stay alive in this game. Press R2 twice once you shoot a 
rocket to automatically reload one. It's a LOT faster and easier. Take out 
all of the motorcycles, starting with the closest ones. 

If a motorcycle is too close to you, try to aim for the back of the vehicle 
so you don't damage yourself in the blast. You can even use an M63 to shoot 
the riders. The Shagohod will catch up to you, so shoot it's treads to slow 
it down. When the mechanical monster shoots missiles, take them out of the 
sky with your M63 or toss a Chaff Grenade to mess up their flight pattern. 
You will come to the rail bridge after pummeling the treads for a bit.

You will jump out of the side car. Equip the sniper rifle and aim for the 
explosives Eva planted on the bridge. Start with the one farthest away. Eva 
will command you where to aim, so it's not that hard. Blow out both of them 
to destroy the bridge. The Shagohod will fall off the bridge. That's what you 
think! It uses rocket boosters to speed up the falling bridge, over Snake and 
Eva, and lands behind them. It's ready to fight!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Shagohod
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The battle against the Shagohod is simple. You must do to it what you did on 
the runway: shoot the treads. Use a tactical reload (double tap R2) and your 
RPG-7 to shoot the treads. When sparks fly and Volgin complains that it's too 
slow, Eva will drive to the back of the giant tank.

Aim for the upper portion of the Shagohod and shoot the damaged part where 
the electricity is coming out of. You can possibly get two or three shots in. 
The Shagohod will turn around afterwards. When it fires missiles like before, 
shoot them out of the air or use a Chaff Grenade. Repeat the process of 
shooting the treads, then the back to defeat this very easy boss.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Volgin
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This time you will be on foot when you fight Volgin inside the Shagohod. At 
first, Volgin will begin chasing Eva. Go to the edge of the area and hop in a 
turret. Start blasting Volgin (he's on top of the Shagohod) and he will turn 
to face you. Jump off of the turret, because he will come speeding at you and 
he will run over the turret. 

Volgin will then fire machine guns at at you. Run away from them by going 
south. They should not even reach you. Volgin also fires a steady stream of 
bullets from the center of the tank. Run from side to side to dodge it. He 
will also fire missiles at you. Like before, use the M63 or Chaff Grenades to 
make short work of them.

After a while of running and dodging, Volgin will forget about you and start 
chasing Eva. Once again, hop in a turret and blast away until he destroys it. 
Repeat the process like before, but make sure to keep your distance. If you 
get too close to the Shagohod, he will actually run you over!

But there is a small space between the center of the vehicle and the treads 
that you can go through unharmed. You can whip out your sniper rifle and 
proceed to shoot at the back of Volgin's head before he gets a chance to turn 
around. Repeat this simple process to bring down the big man once and for all.

- Alternate Battle Strategy:
  I found a much easier way to defeat Volgin; so easy that you shouldn't get
  hurt at all. First, start off with equipping your SVD or Mosin Nagant. Shoot
  Volgin in the back of the head when he chases EVA. He will give his
  attention to you. Now, run right up to the front of the Shagohod. He will
  probably say something like, "I'll grind you into dust!".

  With that said, Volgin will attempt to run you over with the Shagohod. Get
  on your knees when he tries to run you over, get up, turn around, and snipe
  him in the head with either sniper rifle. If you are quick enough, you can
  do it, but he does turn around pretty quickly. So, if you're really good
  with sniping, you can take down Volgin without a scratch on you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With the death of Volgin (finally), Mission 9 ends as well. Only one more
mission left!

Once again, another motorcycle chase. This one is harder though, because 
there are hovercraft guards as well. Shoot the guards with a gun because if 
you hit one of the many trees in this area, you could get hurt as well. After 
a bit of shooting down hovercrafts, Eva will tell you to look to the right.

There are motorcycles on the ledge, so aim a little to the left of where ther 
motorcycles are driving and fire to take them out. You should have little 
trouble with this area. You will continue on, and a cinema starts. 

Snake and Eva notice a bullet hole in the fuel tank. With all their 
concentration on the behicle, they didn't see a log in the middle of the 
road. They smash into the log and fly off of the bike down a hill. Snake 
suffered from minor injuries, but the same can't be said for Eva. She was 
impaled on a tree branch, so Snake bandaged her up and gives her a gun for 
protection. You can go into the menu and Cure Eva as well as Snake.

overwhelming amount of guards will try to track you down, and with an injured 
comrade, things can get tough, because you have two lives to save. Go east 
from the starting point to collect pretty much all of the ammo in this area. 

Go south and take the left path. Now, the guards are surely following you. Go 
south along the narrow path until you reach a log. Go across the log and 
plant a Claymore behind you. Once across the log, plant another one behind 
you to slow down the guards from reaching you. Go south, then east to the

A cut scene will begin when you enter the area. Eva runs off to the WIG and 
Snake and The Boss have one last word. The Boss talks a lot about her 
childhood and such. She talks about the Philosophers and how her son was born 
on the battlefield. She shows Snake her scar, which looks just like a Snake 
(what a coincidence). The Boss tells Snake that if he can't beat her and 
escape in ten minutes, this whole place will be bombed to hell. She tosses 
off her coat and prepares for one final battle!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: The Boss
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here it is: the battle of the century. This is where it all comes down The 
Boss is very fast and tends to use CQC instead of guns most of the time. When 
the battle starts, equip the Snow Camo and Snow Face Paint. The Boss will run 
at you and use her own CQC. Rapidly press Circle to try to counter, but you 
probably won't. She's cheap like that. She will end up throwing you to the 
ground. Jump back up and try to punch and kick her. If you knock her to the 
ground, run away from her and dive into the white flowers.

Use the log in the center of the area as a landmark to where everything is. 
Get into the crouching position and look around for The Boss with your SVD. 
With the Snow camo and face paint on, you're nearly invisible. If The Boss 
does manage to see you, unequip your SVD and equip a weapon that you most 
likely won't use. She will grab your gun and scatter all the pieces: the gun, 
the ammo, etc. With a useless gun out of the way, you can add something more 
useful to your arsenal.

Look for flower petals being kicked up in the air to spot The Boss's quick 
movements. She will probably hide behind a tree and come out with her gun 
aimed. Once you spot her, zoom in and when she is aiming her gun, shoot her 
in the chest. Shooting her in the head deals a bit more damage, but chances 
are that you might miss. Shoot her in the chest two or three times to knock 
her down, then run away from your current position. Repeat this process of 
shooting her and running to a new area.

The time limit is the hardest part of this battle. This "cat and mouse" 
strategy is good, but it will probably waste some time. When the music 
starts, that means that five minutes is up and you only have another five 
minutes to take her out. Another good strategy is to plant TNT on the trees. 
Since The Boss always hides behind trees at one point or  another, detonate 
them when she's behind a tree to get her caught in an explosion, greatly 
hurting her. 

If you take her out with the MK22 and deplete her stamina, you'll have you 
will have the Snake Camouflage to use in the next playthrough. There are 
three rare snakes to find in this area, Snake Liquid, Snake Solid, and Snake 
Solidus. If you happen to eat one, all of your stamina is refilled instantly! 
This is an extremely fun battle, but it's also extremely hard. Pat yourself 
on the back once she's done, because you just beat the final boss of the game!

==============================================================================

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Ocelot Unit
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Follow Eva by opening the trapdoor and pressing Triangle. Once you're under, 
turn around and crawl through the opening. By the time you are right next to 
the opening, a guard should walk by. Throw a grenade under his feet and watch 
him get decimated. More guards will be alerted and run to investigate. Let 
them suffer the same fate by chucking a grenade at them. You can take out at 
least five out of the eight soldiers this way.

Go through the opening and into the building. Jump on the crates to the 
northwest to obtain the Cardboard Box A. Return to Sokolov was held and open 
the locker in the corner to get Thermal Goggles. Exit the room and in the 
corner is a Mine Detector. Pick it up, then head west. When you reach the 
stairs, go up them and get the AK-47 on the platform. From here, you can get 
a bird's eye view of most of the area. Pick off the guard who is to the left 
of you immediately.

Jump down and go back east. When you can go no further, continue north past 
some barrels. When you reach the boxes on the eastern side, bang on them to 
attract the soldier who is right on the other side of them. Kill him, then 
proceed north then west. Keep going west until you reach a dead end. Pick up 
the Zombie Face Paint. Go back to where the guard near the boxes was and aim 
towards the roof. Shoot a couple times to alert a guard on the rooftop. When 
he peeks over the edge, pop a cap in his head to take out the last soldier.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Ocelot
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The area for the fight will be a large canyon. Ocelot is on one side, and 
Snake is on the other. Ocelot will run beind boulders and trees while peeking 
out of the sides to shoot you. Stay behind rocks of your own and when he 
scurries by, try to get a shot or two with your M1911A1 or Mk22 for the 
stamina kill. He will stop in the middle of the open area and try to get a 
good shot on you. That's when you shoot him in the head numerous times.

Look for the hornet's nests on the trees. When Ocelot runs under a rock, 
shoot the hornet's nest above his hiding place to chase him out of hiding. 
You can get a few shots off of him when he's panicking. If you ever run out 
of ammo, head south to a tree. There are grenades high in the tree and there 
is gun ammo in the western part of the canyon. It doesn't hurt to explore for 
item when the battle is still going on.

When you take out about half of Ocelot's health, he starts getting more 
talented and instead of simply firing at you, he will ricochet shots off of 
rocks to hit you, so there aren't many places to hide and cover. If you run 
out of M1911A1 ammo entirely, then switch to the AK-47. Ocelot wants a pistol 
duel, and if you use the AK-47, he considers it to be "cheating" and his 
soldiers fire at you. If you're out of all other ammo then there is really no 
other choice than to use it.

Ocelot will take a long time to reload during the fight. If you hear the 
noise of clicking guns and such, then he's reloading. He may take a while, so 
you can even throw a grenade at a rock or tree to blast him out of hiding. The
blast will hurt him and make him run away to another location. The battle is 
not too hard, so you will probably have little trouble.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: The Pain
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Pain will take his place on the central island for the whole battle. You 
should stay in the water for a large portion of the battle. The Pain likes to 
talk to himself a lot in this battle, which actually makes it easier. For 
example, if he says "Tommygun!", then stay under the water. The Pain will 
pull out a Tommygun and start shooting you, even if you're under the water. 
Swim halfway around the poll and he'll surely be done firing at you. 

When he yells "Grenade!", he'll take out a grenade and use his hornet friends 
to carry it to you. When The Pain does say this, hop onto the surrounding 
rock structures and fire at The Pain with an AK-47 or M1911A1. He will just 
stand there, waiting for the hornets to drop the grenade at you; he's pretty 
much a sitting duck.

After you damage The Pain a bit, he will gather his hornets and make a shield 
around him. You can take out the hornet shield with some M37 shots, grenades, 
White Phosphorous Grenades, or Stun Grenades. Hop into the water and look for 
ammo or food if needed.

Sometimes The Pain will ask himself where you are. If he can't find you, wait 
underwater with your Water Camo on and he will walk around the edge of the 
island and bend over. Equip the Thermal Goggles to see him better and pop in 
some shots from underwater. Always look at your stamina while underwater. Your 
health will decreasure if you run out of stamina.

The Pain also makes mirror images of himself. If you shoot the decoy, it will 
give away your position and you'll be attacked. Equip the Thermal Goggles and 
shoot the one with the body hit for a surefire way to hurt The Pain.

Once half of The Pain's health has been depleted, he will start shooting 
hornets out of his mouth! These are bullet bees and as the name implies, they 
should be treated like bullets. If you get hit by one, you have to use the 
same cure treatment as a gunshot wound. Quickly swim around the island to 
avoid these attacks.

Remember, ammo can be found underwater and on the surrounding rock structures. 
There's also many fish to find, so there's plenty of food in this area. Once 
you've deplete all of The Pain's health, the hornet-loving freak will be done 
for. He explodes, letting you continue your way out of the cave.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: The Fear
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As soon as the battle starts, cure yourself of the nasty arrow wound and the 
poisoning. The Fear will turn invisible, leaping from tree to tree like a 
crazed monkey. The only way to fight this goon is to use Thermal Goggles. Keep 
them equipped at all times. Since The Fear maneuvers around the area with such 
speed, he will always be able to see you. Heck, you can equip any camo you 
want, and it won't help you in this battle. 

As The Fear hops along the treetops, search for him in First-Person Mode and 
blast him once he stops momentarily. It's hard to see or know when he's 
attacking you with your Thermal Goggles on, because it's hard to see or hear 
the arrows. You can listen for him when he pulls the arrow back, kind of how a 
bow and arrow sounds like. Always open the cure menu to check if you have any 
injuries. The traps from before are still in tact and they can hurt you.

Continue blasting at him with your AK-47 or XM16E1. After a bit of fighting, 
The Fear will start complaining and searches for food. He'll sometimes shoot 
food from the treetops, then hop onto the ground and eat it to regain stamina. 
If you have any poisonous animals (living ones), throw them on the ground and 
they might attack The Fear as he gathers food. Sometimes, he eats rotten food 
and his stamina will go down and he will be stunned. 

The Fear will also become uninvisible for a short time, so use that as an 
opportunity to take him out and continue mauling him with some sort of
automatic weapon. You can also run up to him and blast him with your M37 
shotgun. The Fear doesn't have many attacks or tactics other than shooting 
you with arrows. The Fear will go down rather quickly; he's probably the 
easiest of the Cobra Unit.

- SITHDUKE says:
  What I do first is just to the left of your starting location is a tree with
  two mushrooms and a 2nd tree with a third mushroom just left of that one.
  These are idea to keep The Fear from collecting his own food and
  regenerating his stamina. If you shoot/kick them from the tree's base he'll
  automatically want your food instead of hunting his own. When The Fear
  consumes them he'll be poisoned and you'll also have enough time to kick him
  a few times while he's collecting the food. This is an ideal strategy if
  you're going for a stamina kill.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: The End
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay, this is certainly one of the highpoints of the game. The battle with 
The End isn't just a "he's there, you're here, shoot each other" battle: it's 
a test of endurance. You must be patient in the battle with The End; don't be 
surprised if this battle takes over an hour long, even on Normal Mode.

The fight takes place along three humongous areas; all part of a dense jungle: 
Sokrovenno South, Sokrovenno West, and  Sokrovenno North. As you may now 
already, The End is a master sniper, so you guessed it: this is a sniping 
battle.

The forest is VERY dense, and The End will be stationed at specific sniper 
spots to fight you. You can vie those sniper spots on the map. Speaking of 
the map, you must use the map constantly to win. The End actually shoots 
tranquilizer darts which decrease your stamina rapidly if not cured.

A simple survival knife will fully cure you, but if your stamina runs out, The 
End will capture you and throw you in jail all the way back at Graniny Gorki 
Lab. All enemies will reappear normally, so you can't simply run back here.

Because of stamina being such a big importance in this battle, you will find 
many different animals in the three areas, which respawn once killed. You can 
even shoot and kill The End's pet parrot, which can be found in a tree near 
the weapon supply shack in Sokrovenno South.

The Thermal Goggles are a hassle to use because there is so much animal and 
plant life that actually sensing The End will be near impossible. He is also a 
master of camouflage, so occasionally you will be shot at without even knowing 
where he is. 

Some pure giveaways is his weapon. The scope on his sniper rifle will reflect 
sunlight, possibly giving away his location. If it starts raining, you know 
that the old man has fallen asleep. Run around the areas to all the sniper 
points, listening for any noises. He snores quite loudly, so if you hear 
snores, look at the closest sniper points to possibly find him and get the 
upper hand.

If The End ever says something, that means he's about to or already fired 
upon you. Once the first of his shots have been fired, open up the map 
immediately. His location will be revealed as a red circle. That should help 
you find out where he is and target him. You have one of two options: snipe 
him if you know his exact location or run towards his sniper point and attack 
him close hand or hold him up.

To hold up The End, point your gun at him and Snake will tell him to freeze. 
He will most likely refuse and run away. If you hold him up one more time at 
another point, The End will give you his Moss Camouflage. If you want the 
camo, you can also get it by depleting his stamina. This can be really easy, 
since the old geezer loses stamina over time; going from point to point. Once 
you think it's low enough, unload your Mk22 on him to take out his stamina 
completely. 

But beware, if The End's health or stamina is low, he will use the power of 
the forest (yeah, sounds cheesy) to regain all of his health and stamina! 
Prevent this by not letting him out of your sight. This can be a pain to do, 
because The End is surprisingly quick. Look around on the ground. The End 
leaves his footprints in the mud, so technically you can track him down 
through the whole battle. It's tricky, but always try to stay on his tail.

Very rarely will you actually encounter The End running from sniper point to 
sniper point. I'm glad to say that I did at one point in the fight. If you 
ever end up being close to the guy or see him in the corner of your eye, wail 
on him with shotgun bullets or snipe him if he is far away.

The End also throws stun grenades at you in a ground battle and runs away. If 
he steps in the mud, you can track him down easier. Ammo will be scarce and 
there's limited ammo in the weapons supply room. (I ended up having only one 
SVD bullet left when the battle was over!)

This is the type of battle whether you either love or hate. Some of the more
inexperienced players may have a lot of trouble in this battle, where experts 
may find themselves restarting the game just to replay the fight with The 
End! And because I found this battle to be incredibly unique and innovative, 
I have some users give me their tips, tricks, and their strategies for this 
stunning battle.

- LuigiandYoshiFan says:
  Wear the Mask, the scientist suit, torch, and any other ways of making
  yourself visible. Then when you've got his attention check the map. It will 
  give you his location. When you go there however he will have moved. Either 
  snipe him with the SVD you found or run as fast as you can to his current 
  location then hunt him down via thermal gogs. After that you wanna whipe out 
  your favorite weapon (in terms of accuracy and damage) this way you don't 
  have to worry about hunting blindly and several times.

- cheatachu72 says: 
  Spin around in circles until The End shoots at you. Get down, get to where
  he is, hold him up, get moss camo, get three headshots, turn away while he
  throws a flashbang, follow footprints with thermal goggles, rinse and
  repeat. The Fake Death Pill works once by letting him come to you and
  getting a free hit for you. I went into the weapons shack using the FDP 3
  times and it screwed up his lines. Five minutes later he said, "Think I
  can't tell the difference between a Fake Death and a real one?"

- VictimToDie4 says:
  My way of taking down the end was to use the Directional Microphone to find
  out what general direction he's in then go towards him using the crawl
  stalk. Then reapeat the Directional Microphone part again to pinpoint even 
  closer. When you do find him get right up behind him and wait. I usually go 
  for the stamina kill so i wait untill his stamina goes down to the point
  where he regains him stamina. Then i shoot him. After that i just keep
  finding him and just take him out. Not the quickest way but works for me.

- GinsuKnight says:
  When it rains, it seems that his stamina goes down all on its own, and
  sometimes makes him fall asleep. I was in the river map (west area) and saw
  Z's floating up from him almost all the way across the map. I just ran the
  long way around and held him up before he awoke. Worked well... course, he
  snuck up on ME about 5 minutes later and i got thrown in the pokey. Oh, and
  dont forget that using a big/loud gun (M63 comes to mind) to hold him up
  works well too. He refused to give up the camo, so I shot around his head a
  dozen times, and he gave it up on the spot.

- Graeme777 says:
  Always shoot him 3 times. And learn the map. Some places are better than
  others which The End will use more often. Also, watch out for the light
  reflecting off his scope. Sometimes it can be a full blown lens flare
  effect, other times just a flash.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: The Fury
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Fury will fly right over your head once the battle starts. Run to the 
north and get on the ledge. You will be fighting this battle in six long 
corridors. They are very dark, so Thermal Goggles are important here. Pace 
the ledge, looking down each corridor for The Fury. Make sure you have your 
Thermal Goggles on to help you spot his black suit in the darkness. When you 
find him, equip your SVD and shoot him about three times. He will fall to the 
ground and curse/shout. 

Run to the other side quickly, because when he gets up, he'll charge to where 
the gunshot was emitted and blast the area with his flamethrower. Never fight 
The Fury close up unless you're good with the knife. You can actually slice 
open his suit, stunning him and making him get hurt by the flames. The Fury 
is surprisingly, quick, too. If you ever find him behind you, dive roll into 
him to knock him down, then get the heck away from him.

Run down one of the corridors and just try to make things hard for the guy. 
Try to stay away from the south side of the area, because there is a pit 
which makes things a lot easier for The Fury. He can easily charge into you 
and watch as you go careening down into the pit. After you hit him a good 
five to six times, he'll get really angry. 

The Fury won't pace the corridors anymore, he will use his jetpack to fly 
around each of them, giving you barely any time to snipe him. If The Fury 
ever gets you with his flamethrower, dive to get the flames off of you and 
cure yourself with Ointment and a Bandage. If at any point in the battle The 
Fury seems are away, he'll engage a countdown. When he gets to zero, he will 
activate his jetpack and use himself as a battering ram, crashing right into 
you. When you hear him count, run inbetween the corridors.

There are also a lot of barrels in the area, so use them to your advantage. 
If you'd like to save bullets, shoot a barrel that's close to The Fury. The 
explosive barrels damage the guy more than your guns. When you deplete at 
least three-quarters of his health, The Fury's patterns are nearly 
unpredictable. Once he finds you, he'll usually point that out to you by 
saying something like, "There you are!". So if you hear that, dive roll into 
him or run away.

Since he travels so fast now, close combat is basically all you can do now. 
Either way, sniping is out of the picture. Right when he gets up after a dive 
roll, pump him with your shotgun before he can whip out his flamethrower. If 
The Fury says that his suit is ripped, then he will be momentarily stunned. 
Lash out on him at this point and try to hide right after a successful 
attack. The Fury will be smoked in no time. (Haha, I made a funny.)


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: The Sorrow
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This really isn't a  boss fight, but since there is a boss meter, I guess 
it's an exception. The funny thing is that the boss meter is empty at the 
start of the battle! That's because The Sorrow is a ghost, and everyone knows 
that you can't kill someone that's already dead. The Sorrow will resurrect 
EVERY SINGLE ENEMY YOU HAVE KILLED. That means if you're a stealth master and 
haven't killed many guards, then this fight will be boring. If you're like me 
and probably killed everyone so far, then this might take a while.

As you tread upstream, ghosts of the dead enemies will be coming toward you. 
Some will merely walk past you, ignoring you completely. Most of them though 
will try to get their revenge and take out Snake. If Snake touches a ghost, 
then his life meter will start to get drained. Ghosts are slow, so they are 
pretty easy to maneuver around.

The Sorrow shoots out strange beams of energy at you. Technically, they don't 
hurt you, but it will knock Snake down if he's hit. If you get knocked down 
with a ground of ghosts around you, you'll be hurting. The beam is incredibly 
slow when shot, so you should have no trouble moving to the other side of the 
river to dodge it. 

You can shoot the ghosts to momentarily stun them as they emit an ear-
piercing scream. That proves to be very useful when a wall of ghosts is 
moving towards you. You will also come across the bosses as you make your way 
through. They aren't any different from the normal ghosts; just shoot them 
and proceed.

At the end of the river, you will come across The Sorrow's corpse. After a 
couple of seconds, Snake will drop dead. Don't press continue though, open 
your item screen and use a Revival Pill. It is just a lame trick by The 
Sorrow. If you press continue, then you will have to start the fight over 
again. After you use the Revival Pill, the "battle" ends. You get the Spirit 
Camouflage for beating this ghastly Cobra member.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Volgin
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is an incredibly easy battle, despite Volgin acting like a total badass 
throughout the whole game. Ocelot will actually give you ammo through the 
battle. There is a five minute time limit, but you should have more than 
enough time to finish him. Take off the Maintenance camo and switch to 
Sneaking. Equip any gun, and this will tempt Volgin to shoot an electric 
blast at you. 

If he hits you with your gun equipped, the gun will go off, wasting precious 
ammo and hurting you. Unequip it right before he's going to shoot, then run 
behind him. When the beam stops, unload your M37 shotgun on his back. You can 
only hurt his back, for he uses a shield to protect the front of his body. 
Repeat this simple process until you take out half of his health.

Now Volgin will use different electric attacks. He will fire a rapid stream 
of electricity at you. You can run from side to side to dodge it, then get 
behind him and blast his back. He'll use another electric attack: when he 
clasps his hands together and fires a beam. A very good method is to shoot 
the pipes above Volgin. Water will come gushing out on top of him. This hurts 
him and gives you an opportunity to strike as well. 

To make things easier, use Russian Glowcaps and Chaff Grenades to divert his
electric attacks. Volgin will sometimes go to a circuit box and "recharge". 
Since he has his back facing you, blast him when he is getting his energy
back. With Ocelot constantly helping you and the simplicity of this fight, you 
should not have a problem. If you deplete Volgin's stamina, the Cold War
Camouflage is yours.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Shagohod
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The battle against the Shagohod is simple. You must do to it what you did on 
the runway: shoot the treads. Use a tactical reload (double tap R2) and your 
RPG-7 to shoot the treads. When sparks fly and Volgin complains that it's too 
slow, Eva will drive to the back of the giant tank.

Aim for the upper portion of the Shagohod and shoot the damaged part where 
the electricity is coming out of. You can possibly get two or three shots in. 
The Shagohod will turn around afterwards. When it fires missiles like before, 
shoot them out of the air or use a Chaff Grenade. Repeat the process of 
shooting the treads, then the back to defeat this very easy boss.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: Volgin
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This time you will be on foot when you fight Volgin inside the Shagohod. At 
first, Volgin will begin chasing Eva. Go to the edge of the area and hop in a 
turret. Start blasting Volgin (he's on top of the Shagohod) and he will turn 
to face you. Jump off of the turret, because he will come speeding at you and 
he will run over the turret. 

Volgin will then fire machine guns at at you. Run away from them by going 
south. They should not even reach you. Volgin also fires a steady stream of 
bullets from the center of the tank. Run from side to side to dodge it. He 
will also fire missiles at you. Like before, use the M63 or Chaff Grenades to 
make short work of them.

After a while of running and dodging, Volgin will forget about you and start 
chasing Eva. Once again, hop in a turret and blast away until he destroys it. 
Repeat the process like before, but make sure to keep your distance. If you 
get too close to the Shagohod, he will actually run you over!

But there is a small space between the center of the vehicle and the treads 
that you can go through unharmed. You can whip out your sniper rifle and 
proceed to shoot at the back of Volgin's head before he gets a chance to turn 
around. Repeat this simple process to bring down the big man once and for all.

- Alternate Battle Strategy:
  I found a much easier way to defeat Volgin; so easy that you shouldn't get
  hurt at all. First, start off with equipping your SVD or Mosin Nagant. Shoot
  Volgin in the back of the head when he chases EVA. He will give his
  attention to you. Now, run right up to the front of the Shagohod. He will
  probably say something like, "I'll grind you into dust!".

  With that said, Volgin will attempt to run you over with the Shagohod. Get
  on your knees when he tries to run you over, get up, turn around, and snipe
  him in the head with either sniper rifle. If you are quick enough, you can
  do it, but he does turn around pretty quickly. So, if you're really good
  with sniping, you can take down Volgin without a scratch on you.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BOSS: The Boss
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here it is: the battle of the century. This is where it all comes down The 
Boss is very fast and tends to use CQC instead of guns most of the time. When 
the battle starts, equip the Snow Camo and Snow Face Paint. The Boss will run 
at you and use her own CQC. Rapidly press Circle to try to counter, but you 
probably won't. She's cheap like that. She will end up throwing you to the 
ground. Jump back up and try to punch and kick her. If you knock her to the 
ground, run away from her and dive into the white flowers.

Use the log in the center of the area as a landmark to where everything is. 
Get into the crouching position and look around for The Boss with your SVD. 
With the Snow camo and face paint on, you're nearly invisible. If The Boss 
does manage to see you, unequip your SVD and equip a weapon that you most 
likely won't use. She will grab your gun and scatter all the pieces: the gun, 
the ammo, etc. With a useless gun out of the way, you can add something more 
useful to your arsenal.

Look for flower petals being kicked up in the air to spot The Boss's quick 
movements. She will probably hide behind a tree and come out with her gun 
aimed. Once you spot her, zoom in and when she is aiming her gun, shoot her 
in the chest. Shooting her in the head deals a bit more damage, but chances 
are that you might miss. Shoot her in the chest two or three times to knock 
her down, then run away from your current position. Repeat this process of 
shooting her and running to a new area.

The time limit is the hardest part of this battle. This "cat and mouse" 
strategy is good, but it will probably waste some time. When the music 
starts, that means that five minutes is up and you only have another five 
minutes to take her out. Another good strategy is to plant TNT on the trees. 
Since The Boss always hides behind trees at one point or  another, detonate 
them when she's behind a tree to get her caught in an explosion, greatly 
hurting her. 

If you take her out with the MK22 and deplete her stamina, you'll have you 
will have the Snake Camouflage to use in the next playthrough. There are 
three rare snakes to find in this area, Snake Liquid, Snake Solid, and Snake 
Solidus. If you happen to eat one, all of your stamina is refilled instantly! 
This is an extremely fun battle, but it's also extremely hard. Pat yourself 
on the back once she's done, because you just beat the final boss of the game!
