DPG01-----Introduction-----

Many people have abstained entirely from killing enemy soldiers out of fear of increasing their Demon Level, which results in limited gameplay, as most weapons available to the player are lethal. Hopefully this small guide will clarify the basics of the Demon System and encourage the use of different weapons and allow the player to experience a different way of playing.

On the other hand, for all of those who want to reach the Demon Snake level, in this guide you'll find a complete list of ways to increase your Demon Level, as well as things to avoid if you want to raise your Demon Level quickly.

DPG02-----The basics of the Demon System-----

The Demon System determines certain factors of the appearance of Venom Snake, the player can gain or lose Demon Points by performing certain actions; once the player acquires enough Demon Points, they will increase their Demon Level, which will trigger a cutscene and enlarge Snake's Shrapnel-horn. Sadly, there isn't any sort of indication in-game that tells the player exactly how many Demon Points they currently have, their only clue as to how much they may have is the current size of Snake's horn.

Also, one thing to note is that Hero points do not affect your Demon Points or Demon Level in any way, although certain actions that reward the player with hero points also decrease their Demon Points.

DPG03-----Demon Levels-----

There's 3 different Demon Levels:

1- Normal Snake: starting level; basic appearance of Venom Snake.

2- Horn Snake: it has a longer horn than Normal Snake (http://imgur.com/EbBrNdP). In order to increase your Demon Level to 2 for the first time, you must accumulate 20,000 Demon Points.

3- Demon Snake: it has the longest horn and Snake is always covered in blood (http://imgur.com/RwjC9lQ). In order to increase your Demon Level to 3 for the first time, you must accumulate 50,000 Demon Points.

Once you reach Demon Level 3, you can change your Demon Level back and forth by increasing/decreasing your Demon Points, allowing you to revert the effects of Demon Snake and change the horn's size.

Normal Snake: lowering your Demon Points to 39,999 or less will change Snake's appearance back to normal.

Horn Snake: after returning Snake back to normal, if you raise your Demon Points to 40,000 Snake's horn will grow.

Demon Snake: after returning Snake back to normal, if you raise your Demon Points to 80,000 Snake's horn grows again and gets covered in irremovable blood.

So it actually seems like you have to try to get to the Demon Snake. I think I've only had 6 kills in total and only failed like 3 extractions. Side ops antics count right?

So if it's just completely separate from heroism is there just no disadvantages to just having a bigger horn?

How do you gain nuclear weapons to dispose of? I've heard it's one of the dispatch missions, but in 50+ hours of gameplay I've never seen any of those.
