Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty Dog Tags Guide (PAL)
By Dark Angel (dark_angel13uk@hotmail.com)

This is only for the PAL version of the game as the American and I 
think the Japanese versions have less Dog Tags than the PAL version, 
and have different names etc.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------2. HOW TO GET DOG TAGS--------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Firstly, to obtain dog tags from guards you need to hold them up.  To 
do this, approach a guard from behind and get close to them, and pull 
out a gun, usually the M9, USP or SOCOM will do.  Using First Person 
View Mode (FPV) is particularly useful.  Your character will shout 
FREEZE! and the guard will put up his hands.  Now slowly release the 
Square button to put your gun away without firing or just unleash a 
shot away from the guard so you don't hit him.  Go around to the 
front of the guard and raise your gun again.  In FPV, aim your gun at 
the guard's head or genital area.  He will whimper and shake, making 
his dog tags fall to the ground.  

For some guards, they won't give up their tags so easily.  For guards 
who go "Are you really going to shoot me?" just equip the USP (in the 
tanker) or SOCOM (in the Plant) and shoot them in the foot or hand, 
then aim at their head again.  You can even use the Nikita or RGB6 to 
hold guards up.  They should now give up their tags.  Also, if you 
get one the "tough" guards and try holding them up with an empty gun 
they will notice the "click" when you need to shoot them and grab 
their gun.

Some guards aren't very easy to get around the front of.  For these, 
I like to walk "through" them, making them step backwards and you can 
now move in front of them.

Also, if you can't remember if you got a Dog Tag from a certain 
guard, take your Scope, Camera or Digital Camera.  Look at the guard 
and press Triangle, and if you have his Tag, his/her name will appear 
above the guard.  If the date on the tag is the same as the date on 
your Playstation 2, you'll get a Happy Birthday!! message.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------3. DOG TAG GUIDE ON TANKER EPISODE-------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Right now to the nitty gritty, the location of every dog tag, the 
name on the tag, their date of birth, and blood type.  On some, I'll 
give extra info about how to get the tag.

There are 394 Dog Tags in the PAL version, split over the Tanker and 
Plant levels and on different difficulties.  

By the way, the Date of Births are set out UK fashion, so that's day 
then month.

The information will be set out in the following way:

Name - Date of Birth - Blood Type - Location - (Note Number - See 
below)

The notes will be given below each difficulty list with number 
allocations.

---------------------5. AFTER GETTING ALL DOG TAGS-------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

After getting all 394 Dog Tags, you will get a Clear Code, like when 
you complete an episode.  Go to www.konamijpn.com/mgs2/alldogtags and 
input the clear code and you will be rewarded with wallpapers, icons, 
sounds etc to download for your PC.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------6. SPECIAL ITEMS-------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------

By obtaining a certain number of Dog Tags, you can get special items.  
When you complete an episode (Tanker, Plant or both) you can save 
your game and continue with the Dog Tag you have collected on that 
difficulty. Eg: If you got 20 Dog Tags on the Easy difficulty of the 
Tanker episode, then saved at the end and continued the Tanker 
episode on Easy difficulty again, you would still have the 20 tags in 
your equipment and the tags left on guards would only be the ones you 
have missed.  The items effects will only happened when the item is 
equipped.

To get the special items, you must have got the right number of tags 
(which will have to come from more than one difficulty, as for 
Stealth on the Tanker you can't get 78 tags from one difficulty).

On the Tanker episode:

Bandana (infinite ammo) - 46 Tags
Stealth (invisible to enemies) - 78 Tags

On the Plant episode:

Infinity Wig (gives infinite ammo) - 73 Tags
Stealth (invisible to enemies) - 121 Tags
Wig B (gives infinite grip) - 170 Tags
Wig A (gives infinite o2) - 218 Tags
