    This guide was written to help everyone out there utilize all of the hidden
    items in this game to help increase the gameplay experience.  I have listed
    everything in their respective categories, how to unlock and what they do.
    
    In the case of what I am classifying as an unlockable/hidden item is it is 
    something you do not get during normal gameplay.  Things you get during
    cutscenes or from other characters naturally do not count.  If you have to
    fulfill a certain requirement, search a certain area at a certain time or
    enter a password to obtain it, I am classifying it as an unlockable/hidden
    item.
    
    Please note that this guide does contain spoilers.  This is your warning.  I
    recommend beating the game once on your own before using this guide.
    
    For more specific information about emblems I recommend using bfscr's Emblem
    FAQ and for weapons I recommend using Malinthebeast's Weapon Guide.  Both can
    be found on http://gamefaqs.com/console/ps3/game/926596.html.

    Q: What is this '1911 Custom' I keep hearing so much about?
    
    A: It was the gun used in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater by Naked Snake. as of
    writing this, there is no known way to get this item until Konami releases the
    password.  It is only known about since it is in the official strategy guide.
    
    Q: Speaking of that guide, it says there is a password for...
    
    A: Either they are wrong or it isn't out yet.  The fine folks here at GameFAQS
    usually have the cheat codes up when they come out.  If it is not here, it is
    not out.
    
    Q: Do you have to get the 'Chicken Emblem' to get the corpse camo?
    
    A: No, you do not.  You only need to get more than 50 continues.  Getting the
    'Chicken Emblem' is just highly recommended since that is one of the
    requirements to get it.
    
    Q: Why don't you list all of the downloadable items?
    
    A: That stuff isn't hidden since there is an entire menu devoted to it.  Plus
    with it updating periodically I would have to update this guide every month
    or so.
    
    Q: How do I get a certain emblem or find out more about a certain weapon?
    
    A: This guide is mainly for a list of unlockable and hidden items and how to
    get them.  For more specific information about emblems I recommend using
    bfscr's Emblem FAQ and for weapons I recommend using Malinthebeast's Weapon
    Guide.  Both can be found on http://gamefaqs.com/console/ps3/game/926596.html.
