    [1] Intro
    
    I decided to write this guide to help people obtain unique characters
    without the use of a password where possible. While some are easy to
    obtain, others are not so obvious and require specific steps. I hope this
    guide helps you recruit the team you desire. There are some minor spoilers
    so read at your own discretion. 
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    [3] Characters
    
    Please note that some characters will only be unlocked on a subsequent
    play through and others require you to save your game and turn off your
    PSP and reload the game. Some also require you to be at a certain point
    in the game and have no outstanding reports. Some even require other
    special conditions. I will outline those in the section to follow.
    Also stats are based off of those my characters have.

    Method: You must stamina kill him and beat the game before January
    1st, 1971 on any difficulty. I suggest playing on easy and using
    stealth camo. Also make sure to have a good spy team deployed to
    avoid using aborts and wasting time waiting for them to give you
    reports. Restarting does not effect your time limit only aborting
    does.

    Method: Acquire a medic level of 80 and beat the game. On the next play 
    through save the game and reload your PSP. She will then join your
    party. 
    
    In order to obtain a medic level of 80 you will need high ranking
    medics. I personally had 2 level S medics and the rest level A.
    I managed to obtain one S from the hospital and the other through
    AP scan. The hospital will give you lots of level A staff.

    Method: Make sure you put spies in the town, guest house, and western
    wilderness. After you get Sokolov head to the Silo Entrance. You will
    receive a call from Campbell about a spy report even though there was
    none. Head for the top left corner and interrogate the officer.
    He wears green and is by the rpg ammo. There is a bridge there.
    He will mention a man with twirling revolvers. 
    You will then get a report from the town about a government
    official that is there at night time. Head to town at night.
    Go to the north east side of town and interrogate an official
    in a blue suit. He'll mention a man with revolvers at the
    airport. Go to the airport. On the third floor there will
    be a guard. This is the same room you interrogated the 
    blue politician. Interrogate the guard and he will give you
    a frequency of 141.23. After you leave you will get a report
    about a government official at the guest house. Go to the
    north east room in the northwest building of the guest house
    and interrogate the man in the blue suit twice. You will
    get a report about another government official in the
    western wilderness. Now go to the basement in the western
    wilderness and capture the official in the blue suit. Now
    go to the security base. In the North West building there
    will be a set of lockers. Open them and your character will
    mention the frequency numbers. Go to the X in the middle of
    the communications base. Eva will call you to meet up at the
    airport. Wait 6 days. The easiest way to do this is to go to
    a place and exit and use the wait feature. Now go to the 
    airport and you will get a call from Campbell. Head to the top
    of the airport where you interrogated the politician in the 
    blue suit. You will get a call from Eva telling you her plane
    will crash. Now you will get a report about Eva being spotted
    in the western wilderness. Go to the basement of the western
    wilderness and rescue Eva. She is now on your team. 
    
    * Must have no outstanding tasks.
    * Must not capture the politician in the blue suit at the airport.
    You can only interrogate him, but do not recruit him to your team.
    AP scanned politicians are ok to have in your party.
    * Must have beaten Null for the second time.

    Method: You will need to recruit 200 soldiers before you beat the
    game. Once you have recruited 200 you have to go and face Gene.
    You must beat him by stamina kill. Please note that you do not
    have to get 200 soldiers in one play through. For instance you can 
    get 80 on the first, and then 120 on the second, and then go fight
    Gene and you will unlock him. My method of recruiting soldiers 
    consists of going to the airport and alarming the guy outside.
    Then run back to the truck. A bunch of guys will start shooting at
    you close to the truck. Stealth camo helps a lot to take these guys
    down. Once you knock them all out with your mk22 and the alarm mode
    (after caution preferably) stops drag all the soldiers back to the
    truck. Using this method I get about 8-9 soldiers each time. Not only
    that but most are fox soldiers which are good for online. Keep 
    repeating until you get 200 soldiers. It is possible to obtain soldiers
    through other methods. Ap and GPS scanning will count towards the 200
    count. I imagine that real combat online and the trade function work
    toward the 200 but I have not had a chance to personally test it out
    yet. Also note that you can only have 100 soldiers at a time. This
    includes Snake and Jonathan so really you only have 98 free slots.
    In order to make more room you will have to discharge some. Simply
    select the soldier menu
    (the one where you can view their weapons and careers), and
    press triangle. From this menu select comrade discharge. Any
    prisoners you have in prison will not count towards the 200 so make
    sure to wait until they get transferred over to rookie stage. When
    you gain 200 soldiers and stamina kill Gene start a new game. Save
    the game and reload your PSP by turning it off and then turning it
    on again. Now load your game and it will say a new soldier was
    found. Gene is now in your party.

    Method: Make sure you have spies in the harbour and the plant.
    Wait until you get a report about left over parts used to offload
    metal gear. Then go to the bottom floor of the harbour
    where you first found the colonel and the crate with the metal gear
    parts. At the bottom floor Ghost will contact you about retrieving the
    Saturn V blueprints. Now make your way to the Power Substation
    and head to the building where you laid the time bomb. There
    will be 2 guards here, and one of them you will need to interrogate.
    I believe it is the one closer to the back entrance of the building.
    He will give you a frequency of 145.61. Now proceed to the Silo entrance
    and head for the X on the map. It will lead you to a locked door to a
    building in the northeast section of the map. Campbell will give you a
    call explaining that you need to use a code to open the door. Stand in
    front of the door and input the frequency 145.61 you obtained from the
    guard. Run in and grab the black and red secret documents. You will
    receive a report from the plant telling you to rescue someone. Go 
    to the plant and go inside the main building. Climb the stairs and
    go inside the small room between the 2 sliding doors by the tech guy
    in the blue suit. Sokolov will be standing there and he will be 
    recruited. 
    
    * Must have beaten Null for the second time.
    * Might not be able to recruit politician at the airport
    * Might not be able to have outstanding tasks. I did and 
    was still able to get him so it might depend.

    until December 16th 1971. You will get a report about a women in a 
    strange dress at the guest house. Go to the guest house and head
    to the right hand side of the north west building and you will find
    her on the second floor. Now drag her back to the truck. She will
    now be in your team.

    Method: At this moment it is known that instead of getting Elise you
    sometimes get Ursula for having a medic level of at least 80.
    Otherwise you will have to input the password PK +ESP.
    Note at this time it is known that you can not have both in your
    party at the same time.

    [4] Common Trouble Spots
    
    These are common things people overlook when attempting to get a
    character. If these tasks are not fulfilled, you may not get the report
    you need or the info from an interrogation.
    
    1. Outstanding Tasks - This is a big one. In order to obtain certain
    characters you must not have any outstanding reports from your spy
    unit. This means every report must have a red complete message next to
    it, before you can receive new reports or events allowing you to unlock
    the characters. This includes getting every gun reported found, every
    prisoner that needs to be rescued, ect.
    
    2. Not Being Far Enough in the Game - If you find you can not get the 
    character you want because your spy unit is not giving you the proper
    reports or whatever the case may be, then proceed further in the game.
    In fact I recommend that you beat Cunningham and attempt to get your 
    characters before the final fight with Gene (if applicable eg: Paramedic
    you need to get sooner). At this point in the game you will have no 
    outstanding missions to interfere with you unlocking a character.
    
    3. Not Enough Spies - You do not have enough spies to get the report you
    need. To solve this only put people that actually have spy attributes
    (Spy, surveyor, ect.) in the location they need to be deployed. Also
    make sure you have max spies (4) deployed in the area you need to get 
    your report from.
    
    4. Not Starting a New Game and Reloading your PSP - For some characters
    you can not unlock them until your next play through. You need to 
    complete the tasks necessary to unlock them in your current play through
    then beat the game and start a new game off of the same file that you
    just beat. Now play until you can save. Once you save your new game, 
    exit and turn off your PSP. Turn your PSP back on and load your game.
    It will say a new soldier has been found. The character you were 
    working on getting will be in your party.
    
    5. Not Having Enough Room in Your Party - You will not be able to 
    unlock a character if you have a full party of 100 units. Try discharging
    some to make room then saving your game and reloading your PSP again.
    Now that you have enough room the character you want should join your
    party.

    [5] Hacked Character Info
    
    Hacked characters are regular characters that are edited. Their 
    appearance and sometimes stats are altered. The characters can be made
    to look like Naked Snake (Snake you start out with that has no shirt
    and camo pants. He will only look like this in single player not online
    as of now), or Roy Campbell. Also the Japanese exclusive camo soldiers
    (basically regular soldiers with colourful patterns or logos of stores
    in Japan I believe) are hacked because no one with the North American
    version has the GPS attachment for the PSP to legitimately obtain them
    as of now. Players will change the look of regular soldiers to look
    like camo soldiers. If you are going to use or make hacked characters
    please do the community a favour and only use them in single player.
    If you are planning to use the camo soldiers online then please use
    their intended stats which can be found online through various 
    sources such as message boards. 
    
    Please note I do not have the resources (proper firmware) to produce 
    hacked characters so I can not help you obtain them. The only thing
    I can suggest is asking around, because there are currently some
    save files with them, or perhaps someone else can assist you.

    [6] Rumours
    
    Ga-Ko: It has been rumoured that using or producing 100 Ga-Kos will
    unlock this character.
    
    MGS4 Snake: At this time it is not possible by any means to obtain
    this character. 
    
    Ursula: It has been rumoured that if you obtain a medic level of over 80
    with the second number being odd (eg: 83, 87, 93) you will obtain Ursula
    assuming you don't already have Elisa on your team. I have tried this
    by discharging Elisa and beating the game with both a medic level of 83
    and 99 and I did not unlock Ursula, but rather got Elisa back. So I think
    it is safe to say this is not the case. I have yet to try all odd
    numbers, but I think this is simply not the case.
