0.0	Just to explain
----------------------------------------

Yeah, I know no one ever reads this starting crap, but anyway here goes
a quick explanation of whatís up. This guide is nothing more than MY way of 
getting through the game, I have absolutely no doubts that there are many, 
many other ways to do every scenario, so besides that I just hope this helps 
to get you past some difficult part of the game :D Also, Iím not including a 
specific strategy for every boss in the game, just some ideas and facts that 
helped me when fighting them.

Well, since this is Extreme mode, you should have at least passed the game 
once, and so you must know the basics of where to go and what to do, this is 
not a walkthrough of where to go at what time, it is just a guide of how to 
deal with the enemies in the game. Areas that donít have enemies and are not 
really important, or items that I do not find necessary to progress through 
the game, Iíll just skip.
 Enjoy

----------------------------------------
   Version
----------------------------------------
 Version 1. 0 : well I started wrtiting the guide with some notes I had made
while playing the game and trying to get Foxhound ranking. 

 Version 1. 1 : not too much new really, just added a few extra notes I 
remembered afterwards and strategies sent to me

Version 1. 2 : couple of extra ideas

Version 1. 3 : Fixed some mistakes in the strategies sent to me, and some 
grammatical mistakes on my side lol

Version 1. 4 : Awesome, more Groznyj Grad strategies, don't have time to
test them but there they are anyway :D

----------------------------------------
0.1 Legal Stuff and Contact Info
----------------------------------------

Well, if you are going to post this guide in any other place that is not 
gamefaqs.com, at least give the proper credit to those that deserve it or 
Youíll find youíll be host for an innumerable amount of Spam and mail bombing 
xD

As for contact info, if you know any way that is easier than mine PLEASE send
it to me, if youíre going to send anything concerning this guide, the title 
must be MGS3: SA all caps or Iíll just delete, I get enough spam already.  
Send it to: 
oso_mentiroso@hotmail.com 

And please, please try to avoid sending mail insulting me or attacking what I 
did or anything like that, I just find it such a stupid waste of time. If you 
have a better way, send it and youíll be properly credited



----------------------------------------
0.2 How to use
----------------------------------------

First of all this guide is made specifically for EXTREME MODE Iíve played 
normal and extreme, and soldier locations are quite different from one mode to
another, so I would just use this for extreme.

Also remember that the ONLY weapon in this guide is the Tranquilizing gun MK22
If I ever use anything else in any area, I'll say so. 

Iíve posted my way of getting through each soldier infested area, posted in 
steps, and like I said, there are many ways to play this game, I just wanted
to show a specific way , so besides that I just hope this helps to get you
past some difficult part of the game



----------------------------------------
0.3 What you need
----------------------------------------

* You need to know how to use CQC
* You need to know how to beat the bosses, Iíll just point out some ideas
* You need to know how to get through the game
* You need to know how to shoot with the Mk22Öor at least have a decent 
enough aim ( if you really cant do it, well if you equip the thermal goggles 
it gives you a really crude crosshair, but I guess its better than nothing)


Also I would just like to say that the last section of Groznyj Grad where you 
have to escape ( the one before the sewers, with the tanks and all) definitely
 takes the prize for --Most annoying and difficult part to figure out--


To get Foxhound rank you will need to get (copied from gamefaqs webpage):
* No Special Item used. Not hard just start a new game
* 0 Alerts. Well that's what this guide is for
* 0 Kills. Read above
* Under 10 Life Bars of Damage. Hmm not sure about this one
* Under 5:00 play time. I don't think this is a problem either. Just remember
  to jump any cutscenes and jump through all radio conversations 
* Under 25 saves. well if you use 25 saves....umm...jeez... 
 
My saves were:
1. Ocelot Unit battle (yeah I never found Virtous M. too hard)
2. Ocelot battle
3. Pain
4. Fear
5. End
6. Fury (the later problem is escaping from Groznyj Grad lol)
7. Volgin
8. Boss


* 0 Life Meds. I never needed one as far as I remember 
* 0 continues. The reaaaaal tricky one, not dying. But you have 25 saves so 
  don't worry about it. However if you wanna do it tougher on yourself (like
  I did) you can try to save as few times as you can. Which means you will 
  sometimes have to fight against a boss because you were spotted or died
  a few minutes after. oh well. 


As a note to this requirement if you get spotted use the Fake Death Pill and
choose exit and reload your game to make the process faster lol


AND you must remember that pausing the game and going to survival viewer won't
stop the timer, thank you shinya for pointing this out.

That's about it, so let's get this party started!!!




----------------------------------------
1.0 Virtuous Mission
----------------------------------------

You know what to do, run up to the tree and get your backpack...yay
In the next are just go through the swamp, careful no to drown

1.1  Dremuchy North
Camouflage: Woodland/Leaf

1)Ok, see that log thatís a bit to your left, it's hollow so run to the log, 
 go through it, hide in the grass and wait for the soldier to walk past you,
 then run up to where he came from and get him out of your mind :D
2)Now here we have two choices, left or right ...take a left and run to the
 last bush or grass, there should be a soldier close to you so shoot him
3) Stick to the left wall, go past the first hollow log, and then stay on the
 2nd log... look towards the exit and shoot the soldier through the trees. 
 Exit area sticking to the left wall

1.2 Dolinovodno
1) Not much here, you get a cinema with the beehive so shoot the beehive. 
 Run to exit

1.3 Rassvet
Camouflage: Splitter/squares

1)From your current starting position move a bit to the road or what could be
 considered a road, and stay at the side of the left brick wall, crouch and 
 shoot the soldier closest to you, he should be behind the first tree to the
 right.
2) After shooting the first one, look a bit upwards and shoot the soldier on 
 the platform at the top of the stairs
3) Wait a bit and another soldier will pop out of the left side, where the 
 wall is or what could be considered the perimeter of the building, shoot him
(since he may see the soldier you shot in number 1, you may have to shoot him
more than once, as long as he doesn't wake up number 1)
4) When he falls asleep, run to the to the stairs, start crawling, and to your
 right there should be some boxes, now to the north there should be a barrel
 thatís laying down in the middle of the area (one you can push)peek out 
enough to shoot the soldier in the slope (still lying down)
5) Walk down the slope, you can shoot the last necessary soldier through
 the holes on the right wall. Go to Sokolov

----------------------------------------
2.0 Snake Eater
----------------------------------------

Walk down the two scenarios, so we start this after The Bossí ambush

Camouflage: Tiger stripe or Black/ Black
1) After you lose your weapon, if you walk a bit northwards, there is the 
 main path you need to go to, but two soldiers are coming, start crawling and
 hide in the soil to the right of the small passage/hallway path, after the 2 
 soldiers go check the drone, you move. After that I always stick to the left
 wall, but after that I've never encountered enemies

Update: yes there are enemies that enter the area afterwards, however if you 
just lay down in the ground near to the trees they will eventually go away to
patrol

2.1 Dolinovodno

1)Advance a bit and stay between the tree to the right, and the small drop. 
 Stay on your belly and in the grass, then wait a bit (or a lot) until there is
 no more caution, 2 guards will stay; eventually one will go over the bridge
2) When he does, the other MUST be looking towards the chasm, when he does rise 
 to crouching position so the guard sees -something- then drop when he is not 
 looking towards you, crawl near the right wall, then follow the bridge soldier 
 BUT not so closely that he will notice you (I recommend crawling)
3) Once his first foot touches the ground, CQC him unconscious (stalk him), 
 don't risk CQC on him while on the bridge because he can fall to the river
4) Once on the other side of the bridge, watch the soldier on the other side 
 of the road loop (while staying in your side of the loop), when he turns 
and starts walking the other way run for the Exit

In the next area there are no enemies so just go for the room where you
met Sokolov on Virtuous

2.2 OCELOT UNIT BATTLE (10 enemies)
1) Get THERMAL GOGGLES from the locker in the corner, then get beneath the bed
 and wait for ocelots to open the door, as soon as the door drops down, shoot 
 the first guy you see, donít wait for the stun grenade to explode...after that
 wait for ocelots to come into the room.
2) When they get inside the room, start shooting legs, with some time 
 difference, so they all go -Huh?- you should have shot at least 4 ocelots 
 by now

NOTE: be careful, the guy nearest to the door is the ONLY one that crouches to 
look below the bed, if he starts to do this shoot him ANYWHERE in the body
for him to rise and forget about the bed.

3) after the first 4 are asleep, wait some more, 2 more ocelots will come 
 into the room, shoot the legs too and after they leave you leave... after
 some time they'll both fall asleep

4)Move the camera a bit to check if the ocelot on the roof is not there, if
 he's not, go to the next room, run upwards, left and drop down into the slope
 then run upwards towards the stairs, crawl and hide, soldiers can see you 
 here, CRAWL all the way up the stairs, when you are crouching in the platform 
 (never stand when youíre up there) shoot the soldier on roof first
5) 3 more to go, look below and over the brick wall and shoot another, now 
 in the platform you're at there are some boxes with a small protruding ledge
 that is facing towards you the player...crawl there
6) Look a bit to the left with thermal goggles, and shoot another soldier 
7) Then peek as much as you can to the left and shoot the last guy

In the Croc Swam, just go through the path to the left (with the two
fallen trees)and get the Croc Cap if you want to

2.3 Bolshaya Past South
If you took the left path like I told you to then:

1) Crawl down and pass the first fence, on the second one tranquilize the dog 
 and go up the tree and jump over the fence.
2) Once you are in front of the next gate ( the one you need to roll through),
 notice there are 3 soldiers, 2 non-moving all the way to your right(left & 
 right soldiers) and 1 mobile.
3) Shoot the right static soldier first, then the left static, finally shoot 
 the mobile one. (you may have to constantly shoot them if you missed the
 head shot) 
4) If all are asleep roll through the fence
5)Crawl through the hole in the next fence and stick to the left wall. If 
 necessary shoot the dog.
 ( donít forget choco chip uniform from hollow tree next to left wall)
6) Exit and enter next area

===============================================================================
===============================================================================
Here's and alternate strategy by Redha Hachani and his bro Seth:

I tried your strategy on the part where you fight the 10 GRU operatives and I 
believe that its lacking a bit. Still I find mine easier and done in less 
time; here goes.
1) Be sure to loot smoke nades from the stunned corpes you left behind
2) Grab the thermal goggles in the locker ( yeah I know you know that one )
3) Quickly run out of the Sokolov room and throw the smoke outside the room
 where you're standing.
Equip thermal goggles and beat the crap out the 3-4 guards that are there 
(if you threw it correctly they shouldnt be able too see you)
 
Ugh i dont remeber the rest but i know that starting with this and finishing 
with your  FAQ will be less time consuming.

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

2.4 Bolshaya Past Base

1) Ignore the guy to your left, when he moves and turns go straight up 
 (towards the main building) and shoot the soldier in front of you( if 
 necessary )
2) Get to the rooftop. And look towards the exit, you should know which one
 is the exit. From there shoot the guy next to the building to your right.
 Get the Water Camouflage from the rooftop.
3) Wait a bit and another one will walk into your field of vision from the 
 small wooden house structure below you, shoot him...
4) Drop down and go into the wooden house for food, and go for the exit. 
 But look out for the soldier next to it (again, shoot if necessary)

---------------------------
3.0 OCELOT
Notes: Learn the spots  where he comes out of on each rock, careful when you 
use beehives against him, soldiers will back him up. When he runs from rock 
to rock or rock to tree, donít stay in the open, and look out because he can 
shoot you while heís running. Also look out for the coral snakes next to the 
rocks...
---------------------------

Cave
(Inside the cave you must get the ANIMAL for beating Ocelot with tranquilizing 
gun and the SNOW camouflage before the Pain battle!!!)

---------------------------
THE PAIN
Notes: When the battle starts you can get 2 or 3 quick shots at him before 
hornets attack, remember water is your friend here. When he puts up his bee 
shield throw grenades aiming at his crotch, that way theyíll almost always hit 
close to him. Stay behind the 2 rocks that you can climb, you can also take 
cover from ďTommy gunĒ  behind these.
---------------------------


Exit the cave, and start moving
On your way to the river donít forget the mk22 ammo from the small cave, but 
look out there are 2 claymores there, sometimes mice will blow them up for 
you

3.1 Ponizovje South

1) Avoid the lights but donít swim, just walk. Equip water camouflage, just 
 walk near to the lights,since they stop at some point and then turn around to
 restart their patrol... when they start to move back just crouch and wait 
 for it to go past. 
NOTES: Do not move when the lights are very close to you. Better safe than 
 sorry
 If you went for the croc cap then use it.
 ***the 3rd and last sentry turns around REALLY fast! So look out***

----------------------------------------
3.2 Warehouse
----------------------------------------

Warehouse Exterior

1) Crouch and look in First Person...shoot the soldier that is closest to you,
 (in the wooden planks) and then shoot the one you can see on the back, 
 near the stairs to the entrance
2)When the one in the planks is asleep, get in the water and swim hugging the
 right wall, stop a bit before the wooden planks, wait and shoot the last 
 soldier that will come out from behind some boxes in the middle.
3) Exit

Warehouse inside
1) Run up the stairs and come out the red door, from the wall before the 
 stairs you can shoot 2 soldiers, first one is to the right of your position,
 then look in front of you, shoot the 2nd that is between the boxes
2) Look at the zigzagging staircase and shoot the soldier that is coming 
 -down- the stairs 
3) Grab the Sp/Mk22 from top of the boxes
4) At the top of the zigzagging stairs and before the exit towards the next
 area there is another soldier, shoot the 4th guard from the stairs (peek in
first person) if you wish

----Get past the booby trapped forest and into G.G. Lab----

3.3 Graniny Gorki Lab exterior: outside
Camouflage: Tiger Stripe/Black

1) Donít move, crouch and crawl all the way to the left, hugging the left wall,
 when you are near the hole in the fence, shoot the guard in front of the fence
 and go through the hole
2) On the wall facing the left side of your screen (the cement wall) , there is
 a hole, but you can't see it because it's hidden in the grass. Crouch and go
 through it
 
Graniny Gorki Lab interior: outside

1) Once inside equip the scientist camouflage and mask, and run to the 
 entrance or simply stand in front of any soldier

Graniny Gorki inside

1) Run to where Granin is at,when you get to the security post (is it?) get the 
cig gas spray and equip it
2) Open the door, there should be a soldier and a scientist when the scientist 
 is walking away from the TV and towards the lockers run through the room and 
 to the next one. 
3) In this room with all the cubicles, just RUN through the room when 
 scientists are sitting down, but be careful not to crash into the soldier on 
 top.

3.4 Graniny Gorki Lab Back Through

After you meet Granin we need to go back through so:

1) Open the door and stand next to the soldier (you should be facing the door)
 wait for scientist to examine you (turn around so they wonít notice you) when
 he turns to leave, put to sleep the soldier THEN the scientist with cig gas
 spray (this can be done with just one spray)
2) Grab the SP/Mk22 from the first cubicle to the right, and run to the next 
 door if the scientist has not seen you, if he did see you just wait for him
 to return to his seat
3) Open the door and turn around quickly, the scientist will probably examine 
 you. Wait for him to go back and walk with his back towards you (walking to 
 the lockers again), exit this room (this can be tricky since you don't have
 too much control of the camera)
4) Get outside via the red door on ground level

Graniny Gorki Lab exterior: insideÖagain
1) The soldier that is in front of you should be put to sleep with cig gas,
  when he gets behind the small construction or wall or...something
2) Get the rifle from depot above and then run to the exit

Graniny Gorki Lab exterior: outside

1) Once outside put on your camouflage, and shoot the guy to the south.. you 
 can't miss him
2) Run to the corner of the wall and from there peek out and shoot the next
 soldier
3) From the grass shoot the dog
4) If you can just shoot the last soldier and run to fence
5) Grab the SP/Mk22 next to exit

-------------------------------------------------
4.0 THE FEAR
Notes: Obviously use thermal goggles, and remember to go get the mk22 ammo box
 (thatís to the right of your starting position, on top of a small hill) but do
 it before depleting half  of his stamina bar. Because Fear will start looking
 for food.
 WHEN he needs to eat, he always does 2 jumps. First one from his 
current branch to another one. And from that one he does the second jump to 
another branch from where heíll try to grab fruit. Remember this and wait for
 his 2nd jump and you donít even have to move at all.
Seriously: GET the Spider Camouflage
-------------------------------------------------


4.1 Warehouse
Note: these steps must be done fast and as it is written

1) Go downwards and stop in front of the 2 black barrels, from here you need
 to crawl all the way to the first step of the stairs. From here stand if you 
 want to and go all the way past the box and smash into the railing
2) Snake should be facing you and he should be near the railing. Look to the 
 left (snake's right) and below you, shoot the guy on the shoulder... DO NOT 
 headshot him
3) Look to the left(snake should be facing you again) and crouch, shoot the 
 soldier thatís walking towards the exit stairs, as soon as you shoot him crawl 
 back  past the box (that last soldier looks up to where you're at)
4) Stick to the wall to the right past the box, hit it so soldier below will 
 hear something. Then run back past the two barrels and stay hidden where the 
 rail meets the wall. (camera should be aiming at exit to where you just fought
 the fear)
5) Soldier will start coming up and then notice the sleeping soldiers, when he 
 turns around and starts going down the stairs drop down and CQC him
6) Go down the stairs and stay on the little ledge where that soldier was at.
 Grab the items from the room and come out, walk southwards and down the 
 platform, grab the disinfectant and serum and stay there (snake should be 
 facing you) go into FPV and watch the stairs to the exit and wait for last 
 soldier to go down these, shoot him. 
Get the sp/mk22 and leave...phew


4.2 Svytagorny West
1) Go left near the wall, and notice that ground divides into mud and grass, 
 stay on the grassy zone. Crawl through the grassy side (below you may see 
 one soldier), get to the other wall and into the ďhallwayĒ type of area
2) At the end of that hallway shoot the soldier that should be northwards
 in front of snake (tread carefully so you dont run into him)
3) Next stick to the right wall (should be bottom wall I think) when you 
 exit the hallway, and hide in the first grass you see. Look at the logs in 
 front of you and shoot another soldier
4) Go to the sleeping soldier and hide on the grass in that central area with
 trees all over, look to the left and shoot the last soldier
5) Exit


----------------------------------------
5.0 THE END
Notes: His 1st sniping spot is always next to storehouse where the SVD is at 
 in the southern part, get his camouflage and use it (by aiming at his head and
 then aiming elsewhere 3 times...he will drop it). There is mk22 ammo in the 
 storehouse in case you need it. Use thermals to follow his footprints, and
 microphone to pinpoint his position. Stalk when close to him or End will 
 hear you and shoot you. 
 When he is more that 2 stamina bars down, if you take too long heíll
 do photosynthesis and recharge a LOT of his stamina.
 Mosin Nagant is useful for Fury and Volgin battles, so I recommend getting it.
----------------------------------------

5.1 Mountain

Mountain Base

1) Well I got lazy, so as soon as you have to turn the corner to start facing
 enemies, equip the Spider camouflage and run to the exit

Mountainside
Equip the moss camouflage to get you stamina back, after youíre finished equip 
animal camouflage

1) Run and grab the items, and start going upwards that ramp/slope type of 
 ground. Before this first ramp/slope ends, peek up and shoot the guard
2) Go all the way up the next ramp, wait for soldier to turn and shoot him
3) From your current position, long-shoot the next soldier in front of you
4) Go up the next ramp, and get into the hole on the side, so you come out 
 the other way. Hit wall above the hole you just got out of and get in quickly,
 wait for the soldier to come check it out, shoot him.
5) After coming up the next ramp, you can go left(on ground level), or walk to
 the right and go up the platform. Go to the platform and walk all the way to 
 the end of it.
 When you get to the end, shoot the left soldier (nearest to the edge of the
 mountain), and quickly the right one, if you can...then shoot the third one,
 if you can't then get between the 2 bunkers and shoot from there.

Mountaintop
-----Donít forget to get the Splitter camouflage to the right----
1) Get in the fox hole, and crawl through it, shoot first soldier you see in
 the foxhole.
2) Wait for another soldier to go check the first sleeping soldier and shoot 
 him
3) Move up more, and shoot the next one you see (again, tread very carefully. 
 Time is not a problem here)
4) Move more and shoot the next one...shouldn't be too hard
4) Finally shoot guy near the exit(near the antiaircraft weapon) and Exit

Mountaintop again

After Evaís little scene we need to go back through...yay

1) Go down the foxhole and shoot the soldier with flamethrower when he goes 
up that big step and next to the antiaircraft
2) Go up that big step, and go to the right of the antiaircraft weapon, drop
 into the small cache in the wall
3) Peek out to the left (your left), and shoot the green soldier, wait for him
to fall asleep
4) Drop and Exit

----------------------------------------
6.0 THE FURY
Notes: Use mosin nagant, 1st stamina bar half is really easy, just remember 
that if you get burned roll and stay on your belly and the flames will go out.
What I did was use tactical reload, if he is WALKING and is at the SAME ground 
level as you are just aim with mosin nagant, shoot him once...tactical reload 
quickly without moving at all, shoot with mosin nagant again (dont even have to
look through scope) then change quickly to Mk22 and shoot again lol, if you
can pull this off 3 times hes pretty much done for.
However I believe it is possible if you have a fast enough trigger finger to
shoot the mosin nagant 3 times in a row using tactical reload. Hard but possible
you can take fury out in about 2 or 3 minutes
----------------------------------------

6.1 Groznyj Grad

1) Climb the boxes, and in the wall to the right there is a hole, crawl
 and exit towards Southeast quickly
2) Get below the car to the north, and shoot the soldier, get on the roof. 
 Drop on the other side and run towards exit to northeast. Look out for soldier
 near the door though...as always shoot if necessary
3)Here hide behind the small boxes in front of you, shoot the soldier that is 
 standing between all the big boxes near the entrance to the facility
 Move up to one of these boxes and wait, if another soldier sees him, CQC him
 (sometimes it happens and the soldier moves towards your position)
4) EXIT

Inside
1) RUN!!!!No I'm serioues just RUUUUUN up the stairs that are in front of snake 
(to your right), once in second floor, press yourself against the wall BEFORE 
 the lab entrance, you should be between a railing and a wall overlooking 
 the stairs...when soldier comes that way CQC him (wait for him to go a little
 past you)
2) Wait for Raikov to come out of lab, when he starts to check the soldier CQC 
 him, then quickly drag him to lockers
Note: The Lockers that are in the same floor you are, if you did not realize 
 this before, you can use Raikov to open the door that would otherwise be 
 closed to you, drag him close to the door and then turn his body towards it.

6.2 Torture room - prison cells

1) Grab the R. bat meat, and save it DON'T eat itÖthen let Johnny turn around
 and walk to the other side of the room to exit. 144.75. hit him to knock him
 out, 1 combo from behind then combo him when he starts to rise so he doesnít
 call an alert....KICK must always hit even if punches do not (that way you 
 donít give him the chance to see you)
2) Once outside the cells, wait like 5 seconds in the stairs and stalk to the
 south past the car, and into the hole in the wall to southeast
3) go to big box at the top, and wait there for all soldiers between the first
 row of boxes and the wall to leave (use FPV duh), run through and get between 
 the 2 bunker like structures, go up between one of these and a truck. Check 
 around you and if it's clear (it should be) exit
4) Peek out the box so soldier sees something, wait and run for Northeast

--------step 5 must be followed exactly. Timing is everything here---------
Please if somebody knows of a better way to get through this part MAIL IT!!


5) Run hugging the south wall, eventually youíll run into some boxes, stay
 behind those, from there you can see between the two rows of tanks, notice 
 that there is a soldier walking there, watch out for that soldier, wait a bit 
 after he stops, then move, but you must still stay as close to the bottom 
 wall as you can. HE MUST NOT SEE YOU AT ALL.

Keep running hugging the bottom wall, then go upwards running near the fence 
to the left, pass the first car, and in the FIRST tank near the fence, 
(you should be between fence and tank) crawl below it, grab the ration and 
go back the way you came. 

Quickly move up to the 2nd tank and STAND there ( not crouching or crawling ) 
wait for the dog to spot you, as soon as it sees you crawl below tank. 
While you are below it you should hear a "Huh?", exit through the FRONT of the 
tank.

Move to the next tank and move the camera to see the soldier move parallel to 
You (you should be between the tanks), when he passes the tank youíre at, run 
forwards and pass all the tanks, Then in the car thatís at the top crawl and
hide under it.

Here we wait, see that soldier that is walking in the highway, that is our
 mark. 

Take the time to spot the dog thatís sleeping between the red stop 
markers. So anyway, once the soldier I told you about is right in front of
the front of the car (lol) again and walking past you, come out from the side 
of the car, not the front! you should be between the car and the blue box.

As soon as you rise move snake a bit closer to the highway, that is stick his
body a bit past the blue boxes and a soldier will see something, heíll go to 
check it out. 	
When he gets close enough, get on the exact other side of the box,
(that should be between the wall and the boxes) and throw the R. Bat meat to 
where the dog was or is, doesnít have to be exact but close enough. As soon as
you throw it. RUN LIKE HELL!!! to your right, more or less to where you threw
the food at, but run exactly in a straight line, and once you hit the next 
wall, run upwards and to the exit (that is you need to make an "_|" shaped run)
wake up the dog if you must, it will see the food and ignore you, finally 
crawl and exit towards the sewers YAY!!!	

Get past the sewers and past the Sorrow battle...

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

Alternate Strategy sent by Kurdboy, I've never tried this strategy but here it 
is

 1)As soon as you end up in the torture room there is a rat, so kill it (donít
use the fork as snake will eat it). Then the guard should throw you a meal
and keep that too as you will need it later. Now you after the guard turns
around you type the code 144.75 and open the door. Now knock him out from 
behind. You can also pick the guard and drop him too and you will get instant 
noodles. I would eat the noodles because later on snake stomach will 
start making noises and alert the guards. Now leave the torture room and 
go outside.
 
 2)When outside wait for 5 seconds in the stairs and walk to the south past 
the car to the to the southwest wall and into the hole. 
 
 3)Now as soon as u come out of the hole run north under the bunker like 
things, as the 2 guards cant see you. Wait for the first guard and second 
one to BOTH face south and crawl west to next bunker. From there wait for the
second guard there and run west to the corner (but donít pass the wall as there 
will be a guard facing south. Try to move the camera to see when he turns around
and heads north. Wait about a sec and run (donít let the guard hear your 
footsteps). When u get to the truck run straight to the exit. 
 
Next part donít wait or anything run immediately hugging the south wall to exit.
 
 4)This part is where the magic is. Ok RUN exactly west past the first tank. 
NOW if you look on the ground wile youíre running the ground is divided into 2
colored concrete. The tanks are on the dark colored concrete and youíre running
about 2 feet away on going strait west. The first guard 2-3 tanks away walks 
out and sees something and say ?HUH?.
Just before you reach the second tank go (not too much inn though, just barely 
through it) on the dark colored concrete (still running at full speed). The
guard all the way back also says ?HUH?. Then after you touch the dark 
concrete come back to the south side of the tank never (never stop running).
Go around that tank straight north and summer salt to the next tank to the
north and to the first guard just past you and wait a little for the 
second guard to get in front of the tank your standing next to then run 
straight to the next row of tanks to the east. Then wile still running go
pop out to let the guard north see you and he will say ?HUH? and run
around that tank to the tank north of you and wait for the 
guard to pass the tank that you are next to. As soon as that happens run 
northeast behind the guard there and crawl behind him slowly. Crawl behind 
him for about 2-3 seconds and bring out the rat meat and throw it west of the
dog and it will make a popping sound. Donít through it too far away from guard
because he will not hear it. If the dog wakes up before you through the 
meat donít worry and through it quickly as they canít resist meat. The guard
will also hear or see the dog eating so he will go to investigate. As soon
as the guard reaches the meant, throw the second meat northwest a bit and 
he will got to it as well. At this time the dog is eating meat and the guard is
investigating. As soon as the guard is on his way to the second meat run
straight to the fence and crawl under the 2 pipes. Donít run around the two
pipes and crawl under the last to east as there is another guard to the
northwest. Donít worry if any guard says I think I saw something? or 
anything like that, just keep going. Note that all this has to be done fast 
and donít hesitate. Most of this part is running and should be easy, it could
 take a few times to get used to it.

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

This one could be the end of all our nightmares!lol
Thanks to Redha Hachani and his bro:

Starting from the prison cell:

1) Grab the fork and kick the rat
2)Wait till the guard throws the bat and pick it up ( do not eat the rat or 
 stab him with the fork,do not eat the bat)
3)wait till the guard faces south again and do the frequency that opens the door
4)DO NOT RISK HARMING THE GUARD.... just run outside
5)Outside. use your first meal and aim for the pile of red metal beams, your
 meal should bounce and land in front of the guards
6) As soon as you hear him say HUH! run to the wall on the other side. You 
should see a grilled surface on the ground. Start stalking at that point
7) As soon as the other guard near that wall goes south, run and crawl through 
  the little opening
8) Entering Northeast: just stick to the South wall and run
9) Now arriving Northwest
10) this part is Very tricky and requires skills, few people are able to do the 
same without gettin an Alert...First equip your other meal and run towards the 
spotlight BUT do not get in.
Then aim for the Inside out corner of the building. Aim high and make a long 
throw,just keep the button pressed for a longer time (u know the bridge u 
cross to get into Grodznij Grad west facility, where sokolov was being kept,
THAT inside out corner, near the tower)
11) As SOON as u hear the thing popin run towards the other guard near the 
stairsand either have ur SAS equip (no ammo in) and do a roll and then 
aiming at his back so you can say Freeze, OR, if ur skilled in the art of 
gettin a punch punch kick combo without gettin spotted, do that with the SAS 
unequiped and as soon as u kick him and he falls, equip the SAS and aim at 
his back

Its important that u hear Snake say freeze and the guard say UGH..VERY IMPORTANT

After that just run to the sewers and avoid the sleeping dog by going left
But no too much to the left, since there's a guard on the left
Which means you'll get an alert...
And you'll be pissed


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

Here's another one sent by niall paterson

Knock out the gaurd patrolling around the tanks. 
Hide beneath the top tank (beside the armoured car) looking out at the other 
guards. 
When the gaurd wakes up the game goes into a caution. Although reinforcements
are called the patrol routes of the gaurds change and you are given an 
opportunity to reach the sewers without being seen. Watch out for the gaurd with
the shield. He will walk around the yard then he will head south. As soon as you
can come out from beneath the tank without being seen by this gaurd run for the
sewers. None of the other gaurds will be nearby at this point. 
===============================================================================
===============================================================================

Here's another one by	kcbrax:

An alternate way to escape from the pison without an alert is to throw three
meals back to the gaurd and this will begin a cut scene where he will give you a
pack of cigarettes.  But these are the CIGARETTE SPRAYS that you aquired earlier
in the game :D.  It might not be as fast a the other methods, but its smooth ;).

After I got out of the cell I went straight down... waited for the gaurd to turn
around and walk away.  I sprayed him then made a right and crawled under the
wall into the area where I began after beating The Fury.  Then headed to the
right to the last crate and put my back against it.  Waited for the guy in the
back to turn and go on his path.  when he did this I walked to the end and
waited for the guy around the corner to turn around STALKED him and sprayed him.
Then after this I ran all the way to the area with the tanks.  This was a tricky
part for me but I pretty much sprayed everybody here.  Head up to the second
tank without being spotted by the gaurd.  Afer he turns STALK and then spray
him.  Then run back one tank and show yourself to the gaurd that is out in the
open, he will come to see what was there, and u must run around the tank to come
up behind him a spray him.  Then run up to the guy that is under neath the tower
that the search light is housed(By now he wouldnt be underneath the light but he
is in the genral area somewhere between the boxes).  Spray him then wait for the
dog that is adjacent to you to go to sleep then sneek past it, and then wait for
the gaurd that is by the opening to the tunnel hatch to walk away. Run like hell
to the hatch opening and then you are done.

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

And yet another one by Chris Germon

After a little experimentation, I found what I think is the easiest way out of
the hard groznyj grad part. This method gets you past this area in about 30-40
seconds and mostly just involves running to certain points, making it fairly
easy.You only need one meal for this, but an extra is recommended. To get two
meals, either kill the rat without the fork or shakedown johnny. I used the same
route to get to the northwest part, and once there this is how I got out.
   ***Steps Must Be Followed Quickly and Exactly***
NOTE: For the purpose of easily visualizing this, I'm using the following system
for describing the layout of the tanks. A number corresponds to what row each
tank is in with respect to THE SOUTH, the lower the number the closer to the
south. The letter signifies left or right. So, tank 1R is the tank closest to
you upon entering, and would have 3 tanks above it and be on the right. Tank 1L
being the tank directly left of it. That being said, the actual maneuvering is
fairly simple.

1) As soon as you enter the area run so that you are below tank 1R and cannot be
seen by either soldier. NOTICE the squares on the ground in the tank yard, these
will be units of measure for a few parts. Once you are on the lower left side of
tank 1R, wait about 3 seconds for the soldier walking to the right's head to be
in line with the tip of the cannon of the tank he is in front of. Run downwards
the distance of 1 square, then left 2 squares so that you are 1 square below the
right side of tank 1L. The guard facing you will see something and start walking
to investigate. 
2)As soon as the guard sees you, drop another square, and run back 2 squares so
that you are 2 squares below the left side of tank 1R. run in small circles in
that space until the other guard sees you, he will come too. If you did this
right, both guards are almost next to eachother and coming for you.
3) Now, you're going to run (nearly) without stopping until you are behind the
guard by the stairs. Once both guards on your left pass the tank, run straight
up, go between tanks 2R and 3R into the center, then run straight up to left
side of 4R. When you turn to go between tanks 2R and 3R, the guard walking
towards you in the road will see you and go to that spot to find you. When you
get to the left side of tank 4R, press the wall and wait for the guard that just
saw you to pass,(it'll only take about a second), then run straight up, pass the
car, then run right all the way to the stairs.  The run, starting from the side
of 1R, looks like this 

 ---------------------------------
 | CAR
 | 
 .TankR4 <---Guard passes you here
 |
 |TankR3
 -------.<---Guard see's you here
  TankR2|
        |
  TankR1.<---Pass tank patrol here


4)Now it's just a guard and a dog in your way. Equip your meal, and stalk the
guard to a distance of 1 square behind him (Roughly 5 steps). WARNING. The dog
wakes up from the soldier walking over it. As soon as this happens, throw your
meal towards the weapons storehouse, but at a distance close enough the the
guard in front of you will go to investigate it. This is the only slightly
tricky part. The dog is now taken care of, and if you made a good throw you can
stalk right around the barrels, behind the guards back, and crawl under the
pipes and out of sight before the guard turns. If not, he will catch you as you
are crawling. This is why i recommend throwing your second meal when you have
stalked directly in front of the fence and are about to enter. Throw it further
in front of the guard, giving yourself and extra 5 or so seconds, which is
plenty of time to escape.

6.3 Tikhogornyj

1) Cross the river, and run up and near the fallen tree trunk to cross the 
 river back through, when the soldier turns go after him and stalk right behind
 him, stop behind him, he will be looking slightly to the right, then suddenly
 look slightly to the leftÖso move to his right side, so you have the chance to 
 walk past him when he turns around and walks back the way he came. Yeah
 (I know it's pretty lame lol but it works...basically always stay next to his 
 back so his "cone" of vision does not see you)
2) 2nd guard, just get past him when he comes back and starts getting into 
 higher ground
3) 3rd guard, stay behind the rock in the river, run a bit so heíll hear 
 footsteps, run around the other side of the rock while he's busy checking.
4) 4th guard, go up the riverbank and stand behind some trees to your right 
 and before him, hit the tree, when he comes to check. RUN
5) Exit

6.4 Groznyj Grad Northwest

1) Shoot the guy that is blocking the two doors, when heís asleep run for 
 Northeast
2) Go down and hide behind the first boxes you see and wait for soldier to run 
 upwards, run for next side
3) Get to the corner of the bunker like structure, and wait for soldier to walk
 back towards you to shoot him
4) Shoot the guy to the left, you should stand behind the 2 barrels, wait for 
 him to fall asleep
5) Run to the car, wait for the soldier between the big boxes to turn around 
 then run and enter the facility

Inside

1) Equip Scientist uniform and run to locker room (through the other stairs, 
 not the ones you climbed the first time through because you can't), you 
 should stick close to the wall that has the entrance to the library (if you 
 don't a soldier may see you sometimes)
2) Get maintenance AND sneaking suits from lockers
3) Get in worker outfit, and go into the room, I'm going to start planting from
 right to left
4) plant the 1st c3, on the side of the tank that has a console and is facing 
 south
5) 2nd c3  on the side of the tank that is facing the boxes
6) 3rd on the side of the tank that is facing north, on the console that is 
 facing the big gate
7)4th on the side of the tank that is facing the wall

----------------------------------------
7.0 VOLGIN
Notes: Put on the mask + sneaking suit , wait a bit for him to ďrecognizeĒ you 
and take out the mosin nagant, shoot him in the face, use tactical reload and 
shoot him in the face again, take out the mk22 and shoot him quickly one more
 time. 
When he does the ďHere it comes!!!Ē thing, get behind him and mosin nagant his
 neck. Afterwards continue the fight as normal. 1st part of fight, make him 
use his lightning to blow up your gun, on 2nd half just run around him and 
wait for him to waste his charge trying to hit you. For his bullet rain 
attack, just crawl.
----------------------------------------


----------------------------------------
7.1 The Chase
----------------------------------------

Run away

1) Well, what can I say, stun grenades are your friends, and EVA is not
 affected  by them (now that's one hell of a driver if you ask me). 
 So just try to throw them more or less towards the  soldiers. Use the 
 sneaking suit to half the damage.
2) When you start being chased by bikes, face forward and throw your grenades
 in  front of you, that way theyíll go below you and hit the bikes behind in
 the face, if bikes attack you from the sides, throw the grenades to your side, 
 not towards them or youíll miss, always a bit ahead of them


Thanks to Redha Hachani and his bro Seth for pointing this out:

I've seen your faq at the end you say use the Sneaking suit for the escape,
youre just making it hard on yourself, use the COLD WAR camo that Volgin 
drops.
Enemies won't shoot you with it
----------------------------------------

SHAGOHOD
Notes: Not much really, use RPG-7 and tactical reload to beat it quickly. If 
it shoots missiles use a chaff grenade, if he starts to machine gun you, just 
shoot a tread. How fast CAN you shoot that RPG-7 huh?  muahahaha

SHAGOHOD+VOLGIN
Notes: RPG-7 and Mosin Nagant only(or Mk22 duh), shoot the tread and QUICKLY
 shoot Volgin, if he shoots missiles get below shagohod and heíll hit himself, 
if he machine guns you, run diagonally and backwards. 

Use these 2 boss fights to recover lost Life..seriously they shouldn't even hit
you
----------------------------------------

More runaway
1)Well, more stun grenades, same thing as last time, but be careful with the 
 logs in the way through, (thatís what the rifle is for, shoot the logs when
 you must) but when enemies hit you from the sides throw stun grenades to 
 the side and a bit to the front

----------------------------------------
7.2 Final escape with Eva
----------------------------------------

 Well, first of all USE MOSS CAMO

1) Start moving until you get the cut scene, and as soon as you get control 
 over snake and Eva again, move as fast as you can straight down, and at the 
 first tree you see in the left turn (you have two choices here to go down
 or to go up the slope that is to the left), turn around...crouch and aim for
 the soldiers that should already be there
2) Shoot the one to the left (that is what would be the leader of the party) 
 first, on the chest, but do not headshot
3) Then shoot any of the guys to the right of him, 1 or 2 soldiers that get 
 shot should be enough to gain you some time, then let them run back, the first
 one wont run though
4) Shoot the first one you shot again and again until he falls

Now, why I did this: When you shoot the first one, he will freeze wondering 
what happened, and so will the guys next to him, however these will start 
running ifyou dont shoot them quickly. When you leave, the enemy team will be 
hiding, andthe leader will be asleep where they can't see him (yet). When the 
team starts moving, they'll see the body and check it and move again. Another 
enemy shouldfall asleep and the team will stop a bit longer and so on...you get
 the picture, it should gain you enough time to get away...

5) Rise and go up the slope ( the left turn I told you about) get into the 
 little cave thatís there before the fallen tree, make Eva get inside 
 (or as much as you can) and wait for all the soldiers to pass you
6) Go past the log and start going down the slope, when you see you're close 
 enough to the soldiers, start crawling and peek out of the last tree before 
 the area where all the soldiers are at. (you should tell Eva to stop before
 doing this though)
7) Start shooting soldiers, it doesnít matter what order just shoot them all
8) Once they're all asleep, QUICKLY go back for EVA, more soldiers should be
 coming behind you, if they are, shoot one or two of them, at least one of
 them must fall asleep. I do they go "huh?" then run back to hide, and then 
 go back and check the first soldier that is asleep. It's the same trick we
 used when the first enemy team attacked at the start of this scenario...
 That way you'll have  enough time to run to the exit.
9) Run towards the exit. Soldiers should be busy checking what happened.

Notes: You must keep at least 6 or 7 bullets for the next area

Final Runaway..2
Note: Thermal Goggles are really convenient here
1) As soon as you can move snake again, look to your left and shoot the guard 
and wait 
2) Wait a long time, until you see only 2 (or 3, I forgot) soldiers below you,
 shoot them and wait for them to fall asleep 
3) Shoot Eva so she doesnít use so much stamina. Then go shake one or two 
bodies to get more mk22 ammo
4) Move up and take a right in the crossroad, 2 soldiers should be coming down
 the path, if they're not wait, trust me they will come......shoot them. 
5) Go back for Eva, drag her or heal her, and go down, this time take the left
 path
6) Stay at the edge, donít drop down. Just crouch and shoot 2 soldiers to your
 left, then notice that there are 2 snipers in the area too, one is directly 
 below you, the other one is a bit further away, but to the right as well.
 Wait a bit to check if there are no more soldiers around. If there is another
 one shoot him, then check your back if everything is clear, move to the exit. 
YAY!!!


----------------------------------------
THE BOSS
Notes: you can use counter CQC if youíre good enough to do it. If not, you 
should have the snow camouflage from the caves, so...equip it and use the mosin 
nagant, other than that this fight shouldnít be too hard...I guess
----------------------------------------

Congrats, you just beat MGS3 in Extreme, with no alerts and no kills. 
GJ on getting Foxhound rank..yay!
