       / 1.0  What The FAQ Is About \
    --                                ---------------------------------------------
    
    This FAQ is a collaborative effort between users 
    kliefox and riddlebox89
    
    It is intended to provide the reader with a comprehensive list of the available
    PassCodes.
    
    Unfortunately, on June 21st, 2010 it was discovered that the PassCodes supply 
    players with a completely random results.
    
    This means that if I use one code and get a T-shirt along with a female 
    recruit, another player might use that same code, but instead they may only 
    get a male recruit, and no T-shirt at all.
    
    This randomization makes it impossible to accurately detail what each code
    will provide the player, with the exception of the following generalities:
    
    1.) All codes that function properly will supply a single recruit.  These 
        recruits have randomly generated names, portraits, genders, and stats.
    
    2.) Codes that result in the player obtaining a T-Shirt will also provide a
        randomized recruit.  Again, all codes that work supply one recruit.
    
    3.) Some codes display as "incorrect" when entered.  I included the ones that
        did so for me at the bottom of the list of PassCodes.  They may or may not
        function differently for other players.
    
    The codes included in this FAQ have been tested using the North American
    Localization of the game.
     
    
    
         -------------------------------------
       / 2.0  How To Make Use Of The PassCodes \
    --                                           ----------------------------------
    
    This section is a step-by-step walkthru of how to make use of the PassCodes
    listed in this FAQ.  If you're familiar with using WiFi connections with your
    PSP, and have already created a PSN ID, please skip this section.
    
    If not, please read on.
    
    First you need to find a WiFi network to connect to.  This can be done either
    in your own home, or by visiting coffee shops and/or fastfood restaurants that
    offer free WiFi.  Might be slow in the latter case, but at least it will work 
    for what you'll need in the next steps.
      
    A word of warning:  A secure wireless connection in your own home is always 
    preferable to an unsecured one offered or provided by someone else, so please
    be aware of the inherent risks when setting up personal account information 
    through an unsecured wireless network. 
    
    Turn on your PSP.  If you have a UMD loaded, and the PSP's default "play-
    game/movie-at-startup" is ON, you'll need to exit the game/movie to get to
    the XMB screen of your PSP.
    
    Make sure your PSP's WLAN switch is clicked into the "ON" position.
    
    Next, you'll need to establish a PSN account.  This process only takes a
    few minutes, is free, and is fairly self explanitory.  
    
    Access the Playstation Network icon from the XMB, and then just follow the
    steps/prompts, and log in to your PSN account when you're done to confirm the
    created account, then log out and return to the XMB. 
    
    Next, start up your copy of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
    
    If you haven't done so already, start a new game, play through the first
    mission, save and quit back to the starting menu.  
    
    If you already have a save file, press up/down on the D-Pad, until you
    get to the "Extras" menu and select that.
    
    Highlight and Select the "Network" option.
    
    Wait for the PSP to connect to the Wireless Network you established earlier. 
    
    Use the Login and Password you set up for your PSN account
    
    Agree to the MGS:PW terms of service by selecting "OK"
    
    Use up/down on the D-Pad to highlight the "Enter PassCode" option, and
    select it with the X button.
    
    Press the X button again to select "OK" that you understand that your 
    save file will be used for this feature.
    
    On the next screen, select your save file that you will use for the PassCodes. 
    
    And lastly, enter the PassCode(s) of your choice, one at a time.
    
    
    
         --------------------
       / 2.1  Important Notes \
    --                          ---------------------------------------------------
    
    PassCodes are only good for one use per unique PSN ID.  
    
    Once you have collected the T-Shirts and/or recruits from each code, that's it.
    
    Using Multiple Game-Save Files will not get around this One-Time-Use
    limitation.
    
    If you attempt to use a PassCode that you have already used, either 
    intentionally or by accident, you'll get an error message advising that the 
    code is "already in use."  This does NOT mean that someone else has already 
    used up the PassCode.
    
    If you make typos in the PassCodes three times in a row, your access to be 
    able to input the PassCodes will be temporarily suspended for 24 hours.
    
    Some of the codes may work for other players, but not for you.  This has been
    determined to be normal, however, if a code does not work properly for you
    (error message "Incorrect Code"), please move on to the next one in the list,
    otherwise, you may get locked out like you would making typos three times in
    a row.
    
    If you do get locked out, don't worry, you will be able to resume your 
    attempts to input more PassCodes after a full 24 hours have passed.

       / 3.0  T-Shirt and Recruit PassCodes  \
    --                                         ------------------------------------
    
    Each recruit comes with randomly generated name, portrait, gender, and stats.
    
    It has been determined that the currently amount of Heroism Points DO NOT 
    effect the quality of the recruits obtained from these passcodes.
    
    That being saide, the codes are of best use at the beginning of the game, to
    fill in the population of motherbase, and also to potentially get a headstart
    on the "All-Female MSF" achievement.
    
    Passcodes that supply a T-shirt for use as a uniform or camo within the game
    will also come with a randomized recruit.

    A further detailing of the above section, describing the appearance of the 
    shirts obtained from the above PassCodes for use as "camo" within the Peace
    Walker game.
    
    The list itself is organized by the order of appearance within the 
    "Mission Prep" screen.
    
    In Mother Base>R&D>Other>Uniform:
    The game describes the T-Shirts as being "identical to Jungle Fatigues in
    basic characteristics," however, it seems they are actually more closely
    matched to the "Naked"-types of camo.
    
    Certain T-shirt colors do blend in better with certain environments; the 
    "Mission Prep" screen will detail a ranking of how well the T-shirts provide 
    camo in the various environment types.
    
    Real-Life versions of these T-Shirts are (or at least were) available for 
    purchase from Uniqlo stores.

    Credit Where Credit is Due
    A very big thank you to the following individuals and entities:
    
    To SteelWolf89 and KuSaNaG1 for contributing extensively to this thread:
    http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/960566-metal-gear-solid-peace-walker/55025685
    thus providing the base list of the codes that were covered in this FAQ.
    
    To riddlebox89, for instigating me with the suggestion to put this FAQ 
    together, and also splitting the work-load with me about 50/50 so that we 
    could compile the information, and provide the results of each code to those
    that would read this FAQ.
    
    To GlassGiant.com, for making a simple interface with which to turn images
    into ASCII art, which is how I made the Peace Walker peace-symbol displayed at
    the top of this FAQ.
    
    To everyone who posted in this thread:
    http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/960566-metal-gear-solid-peace-walker/55185583
    confirming that the stats of the recruits received from the PassCodes were 
    random, and also confirming that having higher Heroism/Hero Points increased
    the chances of getting a recruit with better stats. 
    
    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=393846&page=2
    for providing larger, high-quality photos of the UNIQLO T-Shirts.
    This enabled me to provide more accurate details in the T-Shirt Desciptions 
    section (4.0). 
    
    To Twin_Master for confirming that the descriptions for shirts UT (N425G Gray)
    and UT (N425G White) as being true, as well as pointing out that the boxes
    themselves are a reference to Metal Gear Online.
    
    To MonkeymanMagoo for testing and informing me that the players' heroism
    points level has no bearing on the quality of the passcode recruits, prompting
    a revamp of the guide to version 3.00.
    
    To "Mizuki" who visited a Uniqlo store in Signapore, and advised that my 
    description for one of the shirts matched what she saw in the store.  This 
    also reminded me that I failed to note that the shirts could be purchased from
    Uniqlo stores.
    
    And my wife, for putting up with all the repetitive blips and bleeps without 
    complaint while I was going through the process of uncovering what these codes 
    unlocked.
