You'll have 8 FROGs to deal with. Move to the south side of the door on the right side of the upper right room. SIX of them will come from the inside. Hide-shooting from this spot will make things much easier. After they're taken care of, TWO more will come, but move to the south by the bookcase, as they will come from the north, take them down. A boss battle will follow when you run to the left side of the room. -[[[LAUGHING OCTOPUS]]]- Her attacks- Homing explosive projectiles Machine gun Camoflauge mimmicks Tentacle Rolling Ball Your Night Vision is very useful here, as the battle begins, unload your Mosin Nagant into her. She'll then disappear, turn on Night Vision. She'll be hiding on a wall, use your Mosin, and take her down. Next she'll hide in a box, shoot it with the MK 22 a couple times and you'll get her. Make sure you avoid her homing explosives and tentacle ball. She'll then be on a wall looking like someone crucified, Shoot her, then she'll act as MK II, again, shoot her. She'll act as a dead soldier next. Then as Naomi, after you beat her, you must face her BEAUTY side. -[[[LAUGHING BEAUTY]]]- Her Attacks- Trying to grab you Before you take on the beauty, run to the north east room, in the south east corner of this room, is the Laughing Octopus doll. Now, hurry and shoot the Beauty. She'll dodge. But if you aim right you'll hit her. FIVE shots with the Mosin Nagant will take her down. Don't let her grab you, because she'll try seducing you, and take you to a white-room, which I personally haven't encountered yet. You must beat her in THREE minutes or you'll be sent to the white room automatically. After you take her out, Drebin will call you. Beating her will earn you the facecamo, and if you took her out tranq wise, you will earn her face, as a camo. -MOUNTAIN TRAIL- After the codec call from Raiden, turn on your NVG. To know which footprints are Naomi's, look closely with then NVG, her footprints look arrow shaped. Unlike the others. Follow the path until Otacon tells you they split up into different directions. Take the left-most path, and you will cross a bridge. Tranq the one guard, and the take the right-most path. Slowly continue, and tranq the guard laying up on the hill. Follow the middle path, going towards the guard you just tranqed. Continue forward and another guard will be waiting at another split up. Tranq him through the rocks, and take the path to the left of where he is, right next to him. You will come to a waterfall, and her prints vanish. -MOUNTAIN TRAIL RIVERSIDE- Otacon will say something. Take the left most path and you will see her prints again on the left trail. From here on, take the middle path. Be cautious, as 2 FROGS will be around here, crawl, and tranq both of them. Continue along the path and you will see a soldier, tranq him, be careful as there is a mine next to him. Take the right path, and follow it. Continue on, and you'll see another guard, tranq him. Take the path on the left side of the guard. Take the path further, and stick to the path with her prints, be careful, as a guard is there. Tranq him, and move on. A bit further is another guard, take him down and follow the trail with alot of prints. This leads you to a cave/tunnel, go inside. And a cutscene will follow. -DREBIN TANK GETAWAY (VISTA MANSION)- Ok, during this part, kick the zombified soldier off your tank. Don't shoot the powered suits, keep kicking soldiers off the tank, Drebin will drive through. On the next area, Gekko will be there, take them out with the machine gun, avoiding the soldiers, as you don't wan't to kill them. -DREBIN TANK GETAWAY (POWER STATION)- Shoot the door with the machine gun, then shoot the tank when told. Then, shoot the doors again, taking them off. -DREBIN TANK GETAWAY (WOODLANDS HIGHWAY)- Shoot the Gekko and the tank. -MARKETPLACE- From here on, you have to reach the exit while avoiding the Gekko. Go north, staying on the very left, then head towards the destination east. Oh, and try avoid being dropkicked by the Gekko ;). Getting there will ensue a cutscene. And ACT 2 comes to a close. -[[[[E-4 ACT THREE - THIRD SUN]]]]- EASTERN EUROPE -MIDTOWN S SECTOR- TIP: Wearing a face other than any of Snakes or the default facecamo, will allow you to walk passed PMCs unnoticed, given a weapon is not drawn. You must be wearing the civilian disguise for it to work. This act can be frustrating if you're not careful, as you can easily spook him. When you start, run straight from your position. A cutscene will follow, and you will have found a resistance member. Very carefully tail this guy. After a few minutes of tailing him, he will stop as a PMC soldier will be up ahead. Very carefully tranq the PMC soldier, and he will continue on. Stay behind the truck/van, and tranq the guard up the road. When he climbs up the stairs, stay at a fair distance, because he will run back and urinate on a statue. Once he's done that, get a bit closer. Careful, as to your left will be two PMC troops, tranq them. Continue trailing him for a few more minutes. At one point, he'll hide behind a door, lean out, then run down an alley to the next area. -MIDTOWN NE SECTOR- Turn left, and he'll come walking out, As you follow, be careful, stay on the sidewalk, as this area has a helicopter with a searchlight. And stay near the wall, as there are THREE PMC soldiers. Continue on, and soon he'll walk behind TWO PMC troops, tranq them both. Continue on and he'll lead you to the next area. -MIDTOWN N SECTOR- When you first come in you'll hear some screams. Stay a bit back, as the resistance member will come out dressed as a PMC troop. Continue following, and up ahead you'll see two PMC troops, tranq them. Continue following up the road, and soon he'll take a left, going passed THREE PMC troops, tranq them. As you continue following, Otacon will soon tell you that they're conducting vehicle patrols. When you see them, equip the drum can and stay still until they pass. Continue following, and soon, he'll lose the PMC uniform, and you continue following him to the end of the path, which will trigger a cutscene. Following the cutscene, will be a bike chase, similar to that from MGS3. -CHURCH COURTYARD- The MK22, P90, and stun grenades are all you will need here. Do not use the P90 on enemies. Use only the stun weapons on them. -RIVERSIDE WEST- Same strategy as before. -RIVERSIDE EAST- Same strategy as before. This time use the P90 to take out those unmanned birds. Once your done, a cutscene follows, as well as a boss battle. -[[[RAGING RAVEN]]]- Her Attacks: Grenade launcher Swooping into the building Smoke grenade Missile dropping Ok, when you start off, head to the balcony. She is easy to notice among the other birds. When you get a clear shot. Hit her with the Mosin. Make sure you run from her grenades, as they take a good portion of life away. When you beat her, you must face her BEAUTY side. -[[[RAGING BEAUTY]]]- Her Attacks- Trying to grab you When the battle first begins, run all the way up to the top balcony. Turn on your NVG, and you'll find the Raven Doll. Then, hurry and take her out, same rules apply to her as did the Octopus Beauty. After you defeat her, cutscenes will ensue, this marks the end of Act 3. Beating her rewards you with the grenade launcher, and her face camo, granted you used non-lethal means. -[[[[E-5 ACT FOUR - TWIN SUNS]]]]- SHADOW MOSES -Various Areas- Welcome back to Shadow Moses, the setting of Metal Gear Solid. When you start, you'll see that you are MGS1 Snake, take either of the two routes from MGS1. The left air duct, or the second floor duct. Also, avoid the enemies.

INCHWORM passed this Gekko. Once passed, you will then be in a PS3'd version of the Heliport. You will encounter alot of flashback conversations. Pick up the chaff. in the middle of the heliport. From here, you have THREE entry ways. The two air ducts, and the front door. Equip the chaff you just aquired. Go to the front door, and throw one. Run as fast as you can to the door straight across from you. The giant door on the right. throw another chaff right as you reach the tank. Once you reach the Canyon, crawl the entire way, do not wake the Gekko. Stay in the middle. Crawl to the slightly opened door. -NUCLEAR WARHEAD STORAGE BUILDING- No need to worry here, no enemies.

Run through the room, and go to the damaged switchboard. Equip the MK III, face it, and press triangle. It will destroy the Gekko. Now, take the elevator back down. -NUCLEAR WARHEAD STORAGE BUILDING- Go back to the door you went to. But this time, a Gekko will come out. Wait until it jumps down from the stairs, lay down, take out your MK 22, and wait until it walks into plain sight, shoot both legs and it'll go down. When it gets back up, repeat. Keep doing this until Otacon finishes. When he is, run to the next area.

Beating her earns you the Rail Gun & her face camo. -BLAST FURNACE- This level is sort of tricky, as there are scarabs around. First, run left down the walkway, and lean against the wall to get across. Once across, look on the west wall, there is a scarab. Shoot it down with your silenced Operator. Drop down, out of the scarabs sight. You may lose some slight health.

To use the machine gun cannon, aim with L1, and shoot with R1, use the missiles by aiming with L1 lock on, and shoot with R1, charge up the laser with L1. and Shoot with R1. Also, during certain occasions (in the upcoming battle), pressing triangle performs a special attack. Also, pressing and holding triangle will cause Snake to scream LIQUID!!!, recovering some life.

Be careful now, stay to the very right of the ship. As there is a Gekko. Move forward, but stay low, as two more jump down from the north, take them out. Look up high and you'll see one looking around on a higher deck, tranq him. Slowly advance while crawling. Look to the left on a higher deck when advancing, you'll see another guard, take him out. When you get to the two sleeping guards, stay put, as another Gekko will drop down, this one will be destroyed by bombs.

Take them all out, and get ready for the final B&B Corps member. -[[[SCREAMING MANTIS]]]- Her attacks- Getting Meryl to shoot you Using soldiers to shoot at you teleport slice Getting Meryl to kill herself Puppeteering you This one is VERY easy once you know the trick.

Shoot it until it falls, when it does, Equip it, and aim it at her. Then shake the controller while holding L1, profit. Now you must face her Beauty form. But before you take her down, get the MANTIS statue. It is in between the two staircases from where you start at the north. When you have it, take her down, and congrats. You have all 5 dolls, earning you the SOLAR GUN. A very useful gun which will come next playthrough, that knocks enemies out with a full charge. A cutscene will follow. -MISSLE HANGARS- When you regain control, go along the hallways. After you go through them a few cutscenes will follow. When you regain control, this hangar will have scarabs. Don't bother shooting at them, just run like hell and roll when you are near them. It saves time, and you won't get as hurt. You must pass through three of these, the fourth will trigger a cutscene, and you won't be controlling Snake as he's running. -MICROWAVE ROOMS- Hurry through the room, be careful not to touch any of the prods. At a certain point you will be shocked automatically. The further you move, you'll be shocked again. This will require you to repeatedly tap Triangle. Further on it will happen again. Only this time you'll be crawling. Quickly tapping it will get you right at the door, even though you most likely won't make it, the cutscene will follow anyway. After quite a few cutscenes, there is one thing that remains, the final boss battle. -[[[LIQUID OCELOT]]]- His Attacks- Punching Kicking Elbowing You in the Head (when he grabs you) Liquid Ocelot has 4 Phases: Liquid (MGS1), Liquid Ocelot (MGS2), Ocelot (MGS3) and Ocelot (MGS4).
