    Section 2: (B)
                                Hints and Tips
    This section will tell you all you need to know about playing the game. First
    Lesson: if you move the directional pad upwards the character moves in that
    Direction, now if you mastered this then your ready to move to the real stuff.
    This is important for the game and is easy if you master it. Stealth means not
    To be seen by the Enemy. Just use your environment to stay hidden and always
    Keep one eye on the radar.
    Alert Mode
    This is when the place were the radar is turns red and a timer appears. This
    Happens when you have been spotted by a camera or soldier. When it happens
    Just hide and wait for it to disappear.
    The easiest way to kill an enemy is to equip a gun and riddle him with bullets
    but if this doesn't work you run up behind then and strangle them. You could
    also keep punching and kicking until there dead.
    You need to get some practice in before you can really use this. Get some
    practice in during the opening level. Knocking is when you hit your hand of an
    object in the gaming environment. It is good for getting guards to move to
    were you knocked so after you do it move quick.
    Operation Human Shield
    This is when you use an enemy as a shield. To do it walk up behind an enemy
    and grab him. Use him to move through a room with lots of guards so that they
    can't shoot you.
    Cameras are mounted onto walls in the game. If you see one than try get by it
    without it seeing you. All cameras have blindspots so use then. You could just
    throw a Chaff and run by.
    This is a new feature for this game. It involves hanging of walls or rails.
    Use this to sneak pas or hide from enemies.
    Hiding Guards
    This is another new feature in the game. After you kill an enemy you need to
    hide their body so no one will find them. Use lockers are grates.
    Saving Ammo
    For some people like me who love a good killing spree this is hard. Just get
    as much ammo as you can and don't waste it on pointless shooting.
    This part will tell you about all the enemies that are in the game. Everything
    I mention here should be avoided if possible.
    Guards (Soldiers)
    These are the guys that are in every part of the game. Their intelligence has
    improved since the last one but they still are stupid. They are genetically
    engineered soldiers -Genome Soldiers-. They can easily be killed, just shoot
    them strangle them or beat them to death.
    These are the most annoying things in the game. If they spot you they send a
    seemingly endless amount of guards. To get by one just run by when its not
    looking or run under the blindspot. If you dont want to it the right way them
    just lob in a Chaff and run by.
    Gun Cameras
    These are just like regular cameras only they have guns mounted on them. Do
    same to get by these as you do for regular cameras. If they hot you it can
    hurt so use a Chaff if possible.
    These are guys that you have to fight as you progress through the game. If you
    dont know how to kill a boss them they are absolute hell on earth. All of the
    bosses are from and elite soldier force called FOXHOUND. All bosses have a way
    to beat them, none are invincible.
    Section 3:
    Weapon:   M9
    Type:     Tranquilizer Pistol
    Location: The very start of the game on the right or in a locker or in the
    Info:     This weapon was first used in Sons Of Liberty and has now been
              carried across to the remake. This weapon is brilliant if your
              trying to complete the game with no kills. Remember that if you are
              going for no kills then you need to use this against bosses. This
              weapon has a silencer from the start so use it a lot but not when
              fighting large groups of enemies because it takes 2 seconds to
    Weapon:   Socom
    Type:     Pistol
    Location: In a truck on in the helipad level.
    Info:     The first gun found in the game. Very useful for killing an enemy
              at close range. Try keep a full clip at all times and be sure to
              get the suppressor. I don't know if this is true but I was told the
              first 3 letters stand for Special Op Command. E-mail me to confirm.
    Weapon:   Fa-mas (The killing machine)
    Type:     Machinegun
    Location: The armory in the door that needs keycard 2.
    Info:     The ultimate machinegun. Need I say more. Use this to kill a large
              number of enemies in one place OR if your like me use it to torture
              a soldier by riddling him with bullets.
    Weapon:   PSG1
    Type:     Sniper Rifle
    Location: The armory just after  Meryl gets shot.
    Info:     As you can guess this is used to kill enemies at a big distance and
              has to be used to kill sniper wolf. Use Diazepam or cigarettes with
              this to stop shaking. You cannot move when this is equipped.
    Weapon:   Nikita
    Type:     Rocket (missile) launcher
    Location: B1 in the Nuke Storage Building.
    Info:     Good for killing an enemy around the corner but be sure to hit him
              in the back 'cos if he sees it he will run. You need this to
              disable the power box.
    Weapon:   Stinger
    Type:     Rocket (stinger) launcher
    Location: In the building beside where you climbed down the wall with the
    Info:     This should be used to destroy machine. Don't use it to kill
              people 'cos its like killing a fly with a machine gun. This is the
              Best weapon to go up against the Hind D and Metal Gear Rex.
    Weapon:   C4
    Type:     Explosive
    Location: First found in the armory just before you fight Ocelot.
    Info:     This is not used too much in the game. You need it to blow open the
              wall to were Ocelot is. It is useful against Raven and can be
              used against Ocelot if you have enough time.
    Weapon:   Grenade
    Type:     Explosive
    Location: The armory, you need the level one keycard.
    Info:     I don't think I even used this the first time I played the game.
              This weapon is pointless. If you use it the alarm goes off. I
              think it's only in the game because an action game is not complete
              without a grenade.
    Weapon:   Stun Grenade
    Type:     Grenade
    Location: The room to the left of the Helipad.
    Info:     These can only make soldiers fall over or fall asleep but they
              cannot be used to kill soldiers. Luckily they do not effect Snake
              and this weapon can be really useful against the guards in the
    Weapon:   Chaff Grenade
    Type:     Grenade
    Location: In the middle of the helipad OR in the Armory.
    Info:     These aren't really weapons because you cannot hurt people with
              them but are very useful throughout the game. You need them to
              disable machines for a short time. This is a good item when up
              against Metal Gear.
    These are a food source which when used will increase your health. They can
    be found everywhere throughout the game for example guards and hidden areas.
    If you play on extreme mode they are not too plentiful and you can not hold
    These are surprisingly useful. Not just do they kill Snake slowly and
    painfully but they can be used to see lasers and calm your nerves when you
    have the PSG1 equipped.
    These have only one use in the game. They are used to calm your nerves like
    the cigarettes. Use them when battling Sniper wolf or whenever you have the
    PSG1 equipped.
    Key Cards
    These are cards given by bosses or allies throughout the game. You need to
    equip it before it can be used. If the key card does not work then it is not
    a sufficient clearance level.
    This is just a novelty. You can get it in the Armory near where you fought
    Ocelot. There is no use for it, just take pictures of whatever you want and
    save them to your memory card.
    This is not too important but is useful when bullets are flying everywhere.
    This does not protect you from bullets but it will reduce how much health
    they take away. You get it in the room where you needed to use the Nikita.
    Gas Mask
    As you guesses they are uses to protect you from gas. You need them in the
    B2 nuke building. They don't stop the gas completely put does help out a lot.
    You get them in the B2 Nuke Building.
    Mine Detector
    I only used this to find the pal key at the end of the game but it can be
    used to find out where claymores are kept. If your radar is not working or
    it is not on then this is just a waste of space. It is found in the Tank
    These are exactly like really cool Binoculars. As you geniuses properly
    guessed it is used to see things really far away. They're not too important
    'cos you never have to use them. You start the game with this.
    Thermal Goggles
    These are used to detect heat. You can see enemies in the dark, find mines
    on the ground and see where lasers are.
    Night Vision Goggles
    These like a lot of they items are not used much. As the name suggests you
    use them to see things in the dark. Don't use them in normal lighting 'cos
    they make it really hard to see.
    Cardboard Box
    This is good to avoid a conflict with guards when you're low on ammo. Equip it
    and guards think it's a normal box. Don't move in it if a guard is looking.
    They can also be used to move fast when you want to stay low and can be use
    to transport you to different locations in the game. Just get in a truck
    equip the box and what for a guard to come. It brings you to were the box
    I don't use this too much in the game but you just put this down in the
    guard's path and they will stop and look at it. While they are reading just
    sneak by.
    You get it off Otecon when you're trapped in the cell. Get on the ground and
    use it, it will look like blood and the guard will come in to investigate.
    Not very useful.
    You get this off Otecon. Since it has Sniper wolfs scent on it the wolfs
    Thinks that you are her and wont bite your head off. You use this once but it
    is a real time saver.
    Pal Key
    This plays a big part of the game and features in one of the most annoying
    parts in the game. You need it to deactivate Metal Gear or so you think...
    Optical Disk
    The C.D given to Snake by Armstech president Kenneth Baker. It contains all
    the test data from the Metal Gear tests.
    Section 3: (C)
    This section contains a freakishly large amount of spoilers for every metal
    Gear game so don't read this until you complete it, or do what do I care.
    Solid Snake
    The hero of the Metal gear series. He features in all the games. He was part
    Of the Les Enfants Terrible project along with Liquid and solidus. In the mid
    90's he joined Fox-Hound, this is were he got his name Solid Snake the second
    highest rank you can get. This is also were he first met Grey Fox (Ninja).
    In 1995 he was sent to Outer heaven, a military instillation which was taken
    over by soldiers. Grey Fox was sent in first but was captured. After entering
    he discovered a new piece of military hardware, Metal Gear. He destroyed it
    defeated the leader of the terrorists, Big Boss!!!
    He retires after this and then later became a mercenary selling his talents.
    Colonel Roy Campbell then asked him for help to rescue a scientist in Zanzibar
    land. The scientist known as Kio Marv designed a new oil -OILIX-. While here
    he met Grey Fox and Big Boss again. He also found a new type of Metal Gear
    which he destroyed. He also killed Grey Fox in a minefield and then Big Boss,
    his father.
    He again retired but was asked for help again in 2005. A group of terrorists
    took over a Nuclear Weapon Storage Facility on shadow Moses, an island off
    Alaska. He reluctantly excepted and with the help of Colonel Roy Campbell he
    managed to infiltrate the island. His mission was to rescue two hostages, the
    Darpa chief Donald Anderson and the Armstech president Kenneth Baker. Both men
    died but Snake found out about a new Metal Gear (Metal Gear Rex). Snake also
    found Grey Fox and Liquid Snake -his Brother-. After the death of Grey fox
    Snake destroyed Rex and Defeated Liquid.
    After, Snake and Otecon -the designer of Metal Gear Rex- formed an Anti-Metal
    Gear Organization recognized by the UN, Philanthropy. Snake snuck aboard a
    Tanker with a new metal gear prototype, his mission photograph the new metal
    gear, but while he was there Ocelot hijacked the new weapon.
    Snake became known as a terrorist and stayed low for 2 years. After two years
    he with the help of Otecon got info on a new Metal Gear in the off shore clean
    up facility Big Shell. Snake found and destroyed the new weapon with the help
    of Raiden. What happens next let's wait till November 2004 -Metal Gear Solid 3
    Snake Eater.
    Colonel Roy Campbell
    The former head of FOXHOUND and uncle to Meryl. He retired after Zanzibar. In
    2005 he was asked for help in a crises occurring on Shadow Moses. He accepted
    and hired the one man he know could do the job, Solid Snake. Roy Campbell was
    in charge of the operation. He helped Snake via codec from a navy tanker, the
    USS Discovery (the same one from Metal Gear Solid 2, I don't know).
    Late in the mission he was arrested by secretary of defense, Jim Housman. He
    was cleared and I don't know what happened after that...
    Meryl Silverburgh
    The niece of Colonel Roy Campbell. Both her parents were soldiers and so she
    became one too. After she joined the army she was assigned to Shadow Moses
    were she was captured in the takeover. After she was rescued by Solid Snake
    they progressed and she was later captured again in an ambush from Sniper Wolf
    who shoot her. She was brutally tortured and was then strapped to a bomb.
    Snake rescued her and both left the island. What happened next, I don't know.
    She properly had a falling out with Snake and went back with her Uncle Roy
    Mei Ling
    She is a "Visual And Data Processing Specialist" during the takeover of Shadow
    Moses. She was the person who developed the Radar system and may or may not
    have been a teenager I don't know. She was also in charge of saving Snakes
    progress. She made a quick appearance in Metal Gear Solid 2 via codec so maybe
    she joined Philanthropy with Snake and Otecon.
    Hal Emmerich (Otecon)
    Hal Emmerich worked with Armstech and was the Chief Engineer for the Metal
    Gear Rex project. While ha was young his stepmother had and affair with him
    (sick), his father killed himself in there pool after he found out. Hal's
    sister Emma Emmerich was in the pool at the time and came to hate Hal for not
    helping her. Afterwards Hal ran off. During his work with Armstech he became
    chief Engineer for the Rex program and during the Shadow Moses take over he
    fell in love with sniper wolf who was later killed. After Shadow Moses him and
    Snake worked together in an Anti-Metal Gear organization, Philanthropy. He met
    up with his sister years later in the Big Shell facility, She then died (I
    think he's bad luck, everyone he knows seems to die -is Snake next?).
    Naomi Hunter
    She was in charge of FoxHounds medical staff. She was an orphan after both
    her parents were killed by Grey Fox (Ninja). After seeing what he did Grey Fox
    took in Naomi and fed her with his rations. Grey Fox was then captured in
    battle, he was then rescued by Big Boss who brought them both to America. She
    studied there and became an export in nanotechnology. After Snake Killed Fox
    she vowed to get revenge on him. So she joined fox-hound and was assigned to
    help with the Shadow Moses situation. She injected Snake with the FoxDie Virus
    which would eventually kill him. I'm not sure what happened to her after
    Shadow Moses.
    Natasha Romanenko
    Natasha was a "Freelance Military Analysis" during the Shadow Moses takeover.
    She grew up near Chernobyl and was exposed to a large amount of radiation
    the explosion. She later went to America were she met her future husband
    Richard Ames. After there divorce she became a freelance military analysis,
    she was then approached by Ames for help with Shadow Moses. She excepted and
    helped Snake by telling him about nuclear weapons and other military hardware.
    After Shadow Moses she wrote a book, "In the Darkness of shadow Moses"
    Liquid Snake
    Liquid was in charge of the takeover of Shadow Moses. He was one of the kids
    born from the Les Enfants Terrible Project, he was called 'the inferior one'.
    During the takeover he pretended to be Master Donald miller and tricked Snake
    into activating Metal Gear. He died from FoxDie but he came back after Ocelot
    crafted Liquids arm onto his own body (his hand was cut off). This caused
    Liquid to take over Ocelots body. He then hijacked Metal gear Ray...
    Revolver Ocelot (Shalashaska)
    Ocelot is a genius at torture and a master gunman. He was very Patriotic and
    dreamed of rebuilding mother Russia. He joined with Big Boss in the takeover
    of Outer Heaven. He then joined fox-hound and was part of the Shadow Moses
    takeover. He killed Anderson and Baker through torture. His hand was cut off
    by Grey fox. After the shadow Moses incident he helped Soludis go into hiding
    and then became a patriot spy. He hijacked the new Metal Gear weapon and
    killed his former partner Gurluckavich. During the Takeover of the Big Shell
    he killed President James Johnson. In the end Liquid took over his body and
    hijacked Metal Gear Ray...
    Grey Fox (ninja)(Frank Yeager)(Exoskeleton)
    Grey Fox is the highest rank you can get in Foxhound. As a child he was a
    slave and was rescued by Big Boss, who helped him become a soldier. He found a
    young girl in Zimdadwe who he helped, 'cos he killed her family. While he was
    fighting in Mozambique he was captured and tortured. He was rescued by Big
    Boss and went to America with his 'sister'. Naomi studied in America but Fox
    continued fighting then he joined Foxhound. He went to outer Heaven to stop a
    takeover but was captured, he was then rescued by Solid Snake. A few years
    later he went with Big Boss to Zanzibar Land. Snake was sent in and killed Fox
    in a minefield. Afterwards his body was sent to America for testing. An metal
    skeleton was grafted to his own and he was brought back to life. He was
    painfully experimented on and eventually escaped. I then went to Shadow Moses
    to kill Snake. In the end he was killed saving Snake from Metal Gear. will he
    make another comeback?, I don't think so.
    Psycho Mantis
    Mantis is the best telekinetic in the world. The first mind he dove into was
    his father who he found out hated him 'cos his wife died giving birth to him.
    Mantis killed him and ran away. He also helped in the takeover of Shadow Moses
    were he battled and was killed by Snake. Before he died he helped Snake find
    a secret passage . He said it felt good to help people than died.
    Sniper Wolf
    Wolf is a deadly Sniper. She grow up in Iraq as a Kurd. After Sadam gassed her
    town she was brainwashed and taught to fight. After the was she was brought to
    America were she was 'deprogrammed'. She worked with fox hound, and was
    to go 7 days without food or sleep in order to kill her pray. She was killed
    by Snake after an ambush on him.
    Vulcan Raven
    Raven has incredible strength and can withstand extreme cold. He became a
    Mercenary and joined Big Boss in Outer Heaven. He later joined Fox-hound and
    helped take over Shadow Moses. He uses a 20-millimeter Vulcan Cannon. He was
    killed by Solid Snake.
    Decoy Octopus
    Octopus is a master in diskice. He had such good skills that he went to work
    with Foxhound. He would learn everything about a person's history and culture.
    Sometimes he would go as far as a complete blood transplant so that the blood
    would match the copied person. He died of FoxDie after impersonating Donald
    Section 4:
    This is as the heading tells you the dock to shadow Moses. This is an
    Intro level to get you used to the idea of sneaking or in my case KILLING.
    First off you are standing on the waters edge, you can go into the water
    and get the ration if you want. On the right there is a M9 use this to kill
    some people. For people going for a good score I'm going to help you by
    getting you through the game without using guns unless you need to and in my
    case I always need to use guns. If you play on other difficulty levels the
    location of the M9 changes. It's ether at the start, in a locker or in the
    armory. So keep on the lookout.  Next go back up the steps and crawl under
    the pipe. Here you have to get to the top of the room to the elevator.
    Avoid the patrolling guards and don't walk in the puddles as this causes
    footprints. When you get to the top you receive a codec call telling you
    to wait for the elevator. Hide behind the truck on the right so you will
    not be seen. When the elevator comes down get in and the cutscene starts.
    WARNING: if you are seen you cannot get into the elevator for some time.
    After the cutscene you are free to roam the open area. Run to the right
    and look for the gap in the wall circling the helipad, run through here but
    don't get seen by the searchlights. To the top of the screen there is a truck
    were the second weapon is found (the socom), use this to kill the guy to the
    top left of the screen and crawl in to the ventilation shaft. You can also
    knock on the crate to distract the guard. Use chaff grenades for the camera if
    you have got them.
    WARNING: If you don't do this quick guards will come because of the noise
    made from the Socom.
    Tank Hanger
    In the vents you get a call from Miller and he tells you to follow the
    rats until you get to the Tank Hanger. You need to get to the left of the
    screen where the stairs are. Avoid the guards and go up the steps without
    letting the camera see you. Get the Thermal Goggles and go back down to
    the first floor. To the top of the screen there is an elevator, you
    should kill the guards here as the elevator may take some time to come up.
    When you are in the elevator press the B1 (basement 1) button and wait.
    Holding Cells
    This is were the Darpa Chief is being held. You can't open any doors here
    yet so just walk to the end of the hallway and climb the ladder to yet
    ANOTHER set of vents. From here take a left and crawl to the end were you
    have to take a left again. Look down the vent to see "a women doing
    exercises". At the next vent you will see the Darpa Chief. After a LONG
    cutscene you will be ready for you first real fight. As far as bosses go
    this is simple, all you have to do is shoot everyone you see (except
    Meryl of course). If you need ammo or rations you can get it of the dead
    guards. Meryl can't die here so don't worry about her. When you kill
    everyone wait for the cutscene to end and check out all the rooms you can
    now go into but you only get ammo so it's not important. Go to the
    elevator and press the B2 button.
    This is a Hugh weapons storage room but for now you can only open the
    doors with the number 1 on them. When you get the C4 go to the odd
    looking walls to the left and the right of the elevator doors. These
    walls can be blown with C4 and there is ammo inside. Next go to the
    bottom left of the screen and blow the walls here as well. Do this at the
    end of the hall again until you get to Baker and Ocelot. Here is the first
    real Boss Battle.
    This may be tough for first time players but just do what I say here and
    you'll be alright. First thing DO NOT touch the trip wires in the middle
    of the screen were Baker is as he is completely strapped with C4. So what
    have we learned so far: touching wire DEAD, not touching LIVE. To beat
    Ocelot keep moving and don't get hit by his bullets -(Dough)- To hit him
    run the opposite way he does and shoot him quick then run OR you can wait
    for him to start reloading then shoot him. Most importantly in this fight
    is to just keep moving or else you are a living target. Keep in mind Baker
    has a health bar so don't hit him and he is slowly dyeing from torture so
    if you're to long he will, you guest it DIE. When Ocelot is almost dead a
    cool cut scene comes on were you get to meet Ninja.
    After you get the key card and all the cutscenes are over go back to the
    main room in the armory and now you can get inside all the rooms marked 2.
    Be sure to get the fa-mas here and watch out for the lasers. If you want
    to do it my way you can gun everyone in this room down with your shiny
    new machine-gun. When your done head back to the elevator and go to the
    top floor (level 1).
    Tank Hanger Again
    Back here again. First, you can get lots of cool stuff in this area but
    you need to call Meryl. As Baker said you can get the number on the back
    of the game case- this took me so long to figure out cos I kept trying to
    look at the disk Baker gave you. But just in case you're like me or you have
    a 'pirate game' (F.Y.I there are no pirate games on the gamecube cos of
    the disk size so don't fall for the evil looking raincoat wearing guy in the
    back ally as he is ripping you off) but to cut to the chase her number is
    140.15. After the longest ever codec call -15 minutes- she says she will
    open the door. So just explore here and get the Socom Silencer on the
    ground level, and check all the upstairs rooms for some new stuff. When
    the door opens go in and get through the lasers without touching them or
    you can settle for the alternative, POISON GAS. use you Thermal Goggles
    In case you haven't noticed one of the tanks is gone, think about it.
    Be careful here because there are claymore mines on the ground. Use your
    mine detector if you got it in the tank hanger or you could use your
    Thermal Goggles. You will get a call from someone named "Deepthroat" who
    is a very important person in the game. Crawl over the mines to pick them
    up or just avoid them. When you get by them a TANK will come out
    controlled by Vulcan Raven.
    This is not to bad, the trick is to throw a stun grenade on the top of the
    tank to stop it them keep chucking in regular grenades to kill the guys
    inside. You might need to do this a few times to kill everyone. Watch out
    for the Bazooka, IT HURTS. If you need ammo there is some at the top right
    of the screen.
    Nuke Storage Building
    That's one more section complete and now you have more health, how cool is
    that -if you want you can go on a celebration killing spree but in the
    next section you cant use weapons because you might hit one of the Nukes
    and BOOOOOM, bye bye legs.
    First off just as you enter the building go to the left and get the rations
    then go to the top of the screen and crawl under the door. After the
    Codec call all of your weapons are 'No Use' so here you need to test your
    stealth so use the box if you have it or you can use the M9, which kind of
    gets rid of the whole need for no weapons. Go all the way to the left and
    avoid the guard, if you think he might see you equip the box. When he is gone
    go up the steps and open the elevator door. If the other guard comes equip
    your box and stay out of the way. When you do this go to level B1.
    Nuke Storage Building B1
    You can get some good and important stuff here with the level 3 keycard.
    Most importantly the Nikita missile launcher. If you want go to the toilet
    and kill the guy taking a piss. Get all the other goodies here then head
    back to the elevator and go to B2.
    Nuke Storage Building B2
    The Nikita is important for this room. Walk through the first 2 doors and
    watch the cutscene which show the electric floor and the room filling with
    gas. Don't worry too much about the gas, if your o2 goes low just walk
    outside and then back in. Use the Nikita in first person view to go to the
    room with the power box and blow it up. Now walk down the hall and go into
    the room on the right to get the gas mask. Go back outside to get air if
    you need to. I will tell you how to get through this area, just follow my
    notes here to do it. First walk to the end of the hall until you reach a T
    intersection and take a right. Watch out for the camera and go through the
    door. You now don't need to worry about the gas any more. Follow the path
    and open any doors you need to. After a few really cool gory cutscenes
    the mystery person will walk into a room, follow him.
    When you walk in a cutscene will start with Hal Emmerich wetting his pants
    funny ye!!!  After the cutscene the fight between you and the Ninja will
    The hard thing about this boss is that you cant use any of you weapons but
    as a hint you can still use your chaff grenades which will short circuit
    his suit for a short time.
    At the start all you have to do his quickly punch and kick him before he
    can hit you, so speed is the answer. He will change his routine a few
    times but just keep doing this punch kick combo. When he uses his stealth
    suit just look for distorted areas or use the Thermal Goggles. After this
    bit he changes again, now what you have to do is punch him once and then
    when he jumps over you do the combo again. If you do the combo first he
    will really hurt you. When he looks like he is going to blow up you need
    to move out of the way an after the bubble appears around him you can
    riddle him with bullets. Do this until the cutscene comes on.
    After another long cutscene go back outside with your shiny new level 4
    Nuke Storage Building B2 Again
    Go around this area again because you can get some new stuff in the doors
    marked level 4. When you checked everywhere go to the elevator and press
    the B1 button.
    Nuke Storage Building B1 Again
    This is a short bit. What you have to do is find Meryl, she is dressed as
    a soldier and that makes it hard. She is in the room across from
    the elevator but there is another guard here also. Check the rooms first
    to get some nice goodies then on to find Meryl. There are two ways, the
    first is looking at the soldiers asses and which everyone is walking like a
    women is Meryl or you could do it my way and beat up the guards and whichever
    one yells like a women is you guessed it Meryl. Follow her into the girls
    toilet (cool) and watch the cutscene. After, leave to the corridor, take a
    left and then a right onto the long corridor. What for the cutscene and
    get ready to fight Psycho Mantis. Before you do this you should get the PSG-1
    from the middle of the B1 floor.
    Psycho Mantis
    This boss can move things in the room and he can also tell what you're about
    to do. First you have to knock out Meryl so she won't kill you. You can use
    the M9 or flip her over your shoulders or do the punch kick combo, after this
    you get to fight Mantis. When the screen goes black plug the controller into
    the controller port 3 or 4 (I always wondered what might happen if you use
    both controllers at the same time, e-mail me if you know). After a while you
    will have to start switching between both of them because Mantis will find
    out. If he uses stealth then flick on the Thermal Goggles to find him then
    shoot him. He will throw chairs and stuff at you, just keep moving to avoid
    them and use your box to block some pictures he will throw on you (crawling
    also works). Keep shooting him in between his attacks and use thermal goggles
    when you need to. When he takes control of Meryl again just knock her out but
    do not strangle her because in case you haven't guessed it she'll DIE. After
    this just keep trying to hit Mantis till he is dead. After yet another
    stupidly long cut scene you are in control of snake again.
    Plug your controller back into the port 1 controller slot and go into the
    open passage with Meryl, get the supplies if you need them then use the new
    keycard to go into the door.
    After you talk to Meryl go to the right and get the ammo. You can look
    through the wall here and see Meryl but this is not important. To get to
    Meryl first crawl under the rock to an area with wolves which can be
    killed with the Socom. Go round the turn and kill the other dogs. When you
    reach the dead-end crawl under the wall and head to the right until your
    out with Meryl again. Follow her through the door.
    Wind Tunnel
    This is the most annoying, irritating, stupid level in the whole game.
    First Meryl will show you the path to get by the claymore mines planted on
    the ground. This is not the only way to get by them, you can use your
    Thermal Goggles to see them or you can just crawl over them. You're mine
    detector will not work here, and as a warning if you go Meyrl's way you
    will get hit by one claymore.
    When you get by this bit a cutscene will and Meryl will get shot. You cant
    save her yet so don't try. What you have to do is get the PSG1, which is
    aaaaaaalllllllllll the way back in the Armory (remember this from were you
    fought Ocelot).
    To get to the Armory first off leave the way you came in then go back
    through the caves to the room were you fought Mantis. Go outside this room
    and walk down the corridor to the elevator. Press the F1 button, this will
    take you back the Nuke storage facility. Use the box to hide from
    guards here and try to get to the bottom right of the screen were you
    entered the first time you were here. This will take you back to the
    Canyon were you fought the tank. This is a bit different from the last
    time you were here. There are cameras on the walls and there are more
    mines on the ground. Crawl to the entrance while avoiding the cameras and
    when your there go through the door. You are now in the tank hanger were
    there are no more lasers. Run to the elevator and go to the B2 Armory. You
    can get into all the rooms here so check them all out. The room with the
    PSG1 has lasers in it so use the Thermal Goggles. After you get the gun go
    aaaaaaalllllllll the way back to were Meryl was shot.
    Sniper Wolf
    This boss can get really annoying if she gets a shot on you because if she
    gets one shot she'll properly  get a second. When you walk in equip your
    PSG1 and target Wolf. When she comes out from her hiding place you have to
    shoot her before she gets a shoot at you. If you have diazepam here use it
    because it will steady you're nerves thus making you not shake. Make sure
    she is in view at all times and just keep shooting her until she dies.
    When she dies go to were she was and get all the supplies there. Head back
    down the steps and go through the door here. Another cutscene comes on and
    you are captured. You are now brought to the torture chamber.
    Torture Camber
    This is as the room name tells you the torture chamber. What you have to
    do is keep pressing the A button until to torture stops, keep doing
    this for a few seconds after the torture stops to regain some more health.
    On the PS1 you could use the auto controller halfway through torture as
    long as you turn it off before the torture stops. e-mail me to tell me if
    it can be done on the gamecube.
    When you are in the holding cell Otecon will give you ketchup. What you
    need to do is crawl on the ground then use the ketchup to trick the
    guard to come in, and when he does kill him. You can also hide under
    the bad or wait for Ninja to open the door. Just so you know the harder
    the difficulty level the more times you have to do the torture chamber.
    When you are out go the  torture room and pick up your stuff in the
    In case you were wondering the guy in the cell was the body of the
    Darpa Chief. I'm not going to ruin some of the storyline by explaining
    why he is here. One more thing, if you submit you end with Otecon and if you
    don't you end with Meryl.
    Back To The Wind Tunnel
    Here we go AGAIN. You have to go all the way back to the wind tunnel so
    you can go through the door you were caught at last time. If you did
    not give in when in the torture chamber check you inventory 'cos there
    is a bomb in it. Just equip it then throw it. Since you have the level
    6 keycard I suggest going into every single room to stock up on ammo
    for the next part. Be sure to do this  in the tank hanger and the
    B2 Armory. Remember were you fought Ocelot, there is a wall near there
    that you can blow up to get to a secret room. When in the caves use the
    handkerchief so the wolfs don't attack you. When you are back in the wind
    tunnel kill all the guards on the way to the top. When you go through the door
    at the top you get seen by a camera no matter what you do.
    Communications Tower A
           ------GET READY TO FIGHT A S**T LOAD OF GUARDS------
    This place is not considered a boss but in my opinion it is one of the
    hardest parts in the game (especially on extreme mode). Be sure to get
    the rope when you first come in here. Use your fa-mas for this bit and
    be sure you have lots of ammo + rations- you'll need'em. Just keep
    shooting while you run. If it moves kill it. Don't focus so much on the
    guards behind you 'cos they cant really hit you if you get to the next
    curve quickly. After a Hugh run up the steps and the fun bloodbath you
    will be at the top. Though? Go through the door at the top and climb
    the ladder outside. Got any hints for this part, e-mail me at:
    Communications Tower A Roof
    When you reach the roof with the Hugh satellite dish walk to the top of
    the screen to were the steps are. The hind D will fly up and destroy
    the walkway -unlucky-. You need to walk over to the edge of the tower
    and use the rope. A cutscene will come on and snake uses the rope.
    Communications Tower A Wall
    Listen to the codec call 'cos it tells you how to use the rope which is
    important for this bit (DUH!!!). The descent is not that hard. Keep
    pushing yourself of the wall on going down. If you keep moving the Hind
    Won't hit you much. Move left and right to avoid the gas, but if you get
    hit just ignore it and keep moving until you're at the bottom. When at the
    bottom you need to put some C4 on the door to get it opened. Do this and walk
    A-B Connecting Bridge
    This is an easy level. When you walk out you need to equip you Nikita.
    Launch a missile down the bridge and around the corner to were there are
    some guards. Keep doing this until everyone is dead. If you go out
    there first you'll be blown into little pieces. When you kill everyone
    and walk down there the Hind D will come back again. Run through the door
    and get the stinger missile launcher. Don't go back out, just continue to
    through the next door.
    Communications Tower
    This tower is a synch compared to the last one. There are 0 guards. No
    fun huh? Run to the top to were the path is blocked. You can't get by
    here yet. If you try the elevator it won't work so run to the bottom of
    the tower, and in the typical MGS way this is blocked also. Go back to
    the elevator and a cutscene with Otecon will start. After, you can run
    to the top. Use chaff grenades for the cameras and run by them. Get the
    supplies at the top and get ready for another fight. Run outside to the
    Hind D (Liquid)
    This boss is easy unless you are doing it on extreme. Like all bosses
    he has a weakness. Equip your stinger missiles and get a lock on him.
    When he fly's out shot him and run before he gets a shoot on you. Keep
    this up for a while. If he starts shooting than hide behind the crates
    on the opposite side he is on. If you want to stay low than equip the
    box to get a fast 'crawl'. When he shoots missiles than hide behind the
    crates. When it goes underneath just watch the radar and shoot him
    before he can shoot you. Easy. When he is gone head back down to the
    Communications Tower B Again
    When you are at the elevator you can go in. Equip your fa-mas -trust me
    and walk in. After the codec call equip your Thermal Goggles to see
    the stealth guards. You need to use lots of ammo to kill the four guys
    and when they are dead the elevator ride is over. When you are out of
    the elevator you will need to use a few chaff grenades to get by the
    next rooms. If the camera gun sees you then you can hide behind the
    wall. Just be careful and use stealth or chaff grenades. Keep going
    until you reach the snowfield. There was a part there with LOTS of
    cameras there and you can't sneak by these. Use a chaff grenade.
    When you walk in you will be shoot by Sniper Wolf, then a codec comes
    on with Otecon telling you not to kill wolf.
    Sniper Wolf
    You can try do it the right and sniper her or you can run to the right were
    you are safe and take out your Nikita and just launch them at her one after
    another. Don't move it too much 'cos you'll use more fuel. Use your diazepam
    or cigarettes to steady yourself and don't loose track of her or she will
    riddle you with bullets. When she is finished run up to her and watch the
    cutscene. After the cutscene check out all the rooms you can go into to stock
    up on supplies. You need to go into the room to the right of were sniper wolf
    was, this will lead to the furnace. Check out you got everything first
    then continue on down the steps to the door.
    Blast Furnace
    When you walk in here you nee to kill the guard. I like to make him
    fall into the lava but you could shoot him. Go to the left of the room
    and there is a ledge you can walk across if you sidle up against the
    wall. Shoot the crane that is moving across with a stinger or just get
    down when it comes near you. If the crane hits you while you are getting
    across you will fall and die. When you are across run to the bottom of
    the steps killing everyone you want. When at the bottom walk into the
    "secret" room were you can get body armor just watch out for the hot gas
    and cameras. When you do this walk back to were you came in and go to the
    top of the screen and go into the door.
    For this part your rations may not work but if you equip them they will
    work after a while. Before you hop on the elevator take out your fa-mas
    'cos you'll need it. When you get on the elevator super guards start
    jumping in. Kill'em all or if you're low on ammo just fling'em off the edge.
    Keep this up until all are dead. When you're out watch the camera, there is
    also a claymore on the ground so watch it. Run to the next elevator and
    get in. Don't worry there is nothing to worry about here except for a
    surprising codec call but I cant say what it says -SPOILER SPOILER-. Play
    to find out yourself. Once your out walk behind the crates and get the
    supplies. Afterwards walk in the door to the next boss battle.
    When you first walk in you are attacked by ravens then Raven come out
    with the coolest gun in the game which you cant get. After the cutscene
    you get to fight Raven. If you do this on extreme it is a nightmare. I
    just cant get by him and this is ME!!! Got any advice e-mail me:
    I'll tell you all I know for this guy. First you need to remember that he is
    not able to run very fast. I use lots of nikitas against him. Run away from
    were he is and shot a Nikita, control it towards him and be sure to hit
    him in the back 'cos he will just shoot them if you go for the front. You
    could also aim a stinger at him just before he walks around a corner, fire
    and run, OR you could plant a claymore and he can just walk into it. If you
    do it this way you could run into your own bombs so be careful. I like to
    plant a C4 near a claymore that way when it goes off wait a few seconds then
    blow up the C4 to get two easy shots on him. You could also do all of the
    above and make it easy on yourself. After he dies -and gets eaten by birds-
    (that's cool) you get a call from Millar and the story just gets confusing
    from this point on. I wont say what happens. DO IT YOURSELFS.
    Walk through the next door and get the ammo. Walk up the corridor and watch
    out for the trap door. You get to a part with a F**K load of cameras. I don't
    think you can sneak by them so you are going to have to use a Chaff. Run
    through to the next door across the room.
    Underground Base
    As you walk up the corridor a cutscene will come on and you get to see metal
    gear in all its glory (Big no?). You need to get to the very top so first go
    to the left and run all the way around until you reach a ladder. Climb it
    and keep following the platforms and ladders until you reach the top. Kill
    everyone you want to and listen to all the codec calls (the calls are long so
    don't listen if you don't want to). When you get to the control room at the
    top you see liquid and Ocelot. During the cutscene Ocelot shoots the pal key
    out of your hand and it falls into a sewer at the veeeeeeeeery bottom. You
    need to climb down, get into the water, equip you metal detector and find it
    but be careful 'cos there are bombs there also. If you pick one of these up
    you have to equip it and throw it away before it blows your arms off. After
    you get the key run allllllll the way back up to the control room and insert
    the pal key into the first slot. The deactivate metal gear you need to
    insert 3 keys. Otecon tells you that the pal key changes in different
    temperatures (room temperature, cold temperature and hot temperature), so
    after you insert the pal key in room temperature and then climb back down
    to the bottom. You need to go to were you fought raven. This is only a room
    back so it won't take to long. Kill all the guard it the room if you want or
    you could save your ammo. You get a codec call when the pal key changes. When
    the call is over go back to the control room and insert the cold key into
    the second slot. Now you need to go to the blast furnace, which is a good bit
    back. Go to the room were you fought raven, run through it, go up the
    elevator and you there. Wait for the key to change again then go back to the
    control room. You get a codec call during this and there is a major twist to
    the tail. Play the game to see what happened!!! When you get to the control
    room insert the pal key into the last slot. Gas fills the room so just equip
    the gas mask and wait for Otecon to open the door for you.
    Metal Gear Rex
    Here you are. The whole game has been leading up to this battle. To destroy
    Rex first you need to destroy the Radome system. To do this you have to shoot
    out the antenna thing (the radome) on its arm. Equip the stinger missiles and
    shoot. After he is hit throw a chaff to block his radar type thing. Shoot him
    again then throw another chaff. Do this until the cutscene starts. You now
    learn more about who Ninja is and what he has against you. As usual I'm not
    going to tell you what happened, PLAY YOURSELF. After the cutscene you have to
    finish off Rex. Here is what I do for this bit. Run under his legs and stay
    there until he gets confused and stops moving. Equip you stinger and SHOOT
    under where Liquid is (Metal Gears "chin"). Even though you are under him he
    can still hit you. He could use lasers so just stay directly under him and
    you'll be fine OR it could stomp on you. This hurts, A LOT but you do have
    time to move when he is about to hit you so stay alert. Keep on doing this
    until Metal Gear is turned into million dollar scrap metal.
    This is a hand to hand combat fight so you can't use weapons. To make thinks
    even better you have a timer, 3 minutes to fight him. And as if that wasn't
    enough you loose 30 seconds from liquid telling you the rules. Be careful
    not to fall of the edge 'cos you might fall and die. You have to keep doing
    the punch kick combo on him. If he charges at you go into the crouch and it
    won't hurt. You could try this next strategy but it is hard to get just
    right. Punch him and what a second then punch him again and keep doing this.
    If you get it right he will lose lots of health before he can move out of
    the way. The next trick I got from the fight against  Solidus in Metal Gear
    Solid 2. Just as liquid charges at you hang off the edge. He can't hit you
    here but get up quick before he knocks you off, then do the punch kick combo
    before he can react. Keep this up till he is dead.
    Depending on whether or not you submitted in the torture chamber this next
    bit will change slightly but what you need to do stays the same.
    The Great Escape
    Finally you're here. This is the final level in the game. After this you're
    done and done, complete 100%. You only have 9 minutes to do this or shadow
    Moses will be turned into a car park. Run to the room to the left of the
    screen and then into the parking lot. You have to wait for the car to be fixed
    so kill anyone who comes in. If you have no ammo then just hide behind the
    when you're ready to go hop in the car and shoot everyone with the gun. You
    don't need to worry about ammo here so don't take your finger off the trigger
    and do what I do, if it moves kill it. You come to a checkpoint, all you
    have to do is kill everyone and move on up the tunnel. After this, in comes
    Liquid AGAIN!!!!
    I always wondered if Liquid and Snake are identical brothers  then
    how come Liquid can live through a plan crash, a crap load of stinger
    missiles and a huge drop from  Metal Gear while snake gets shot once and dies
    makes you think. No?
    Keep shooting Liquid and use any rations you have here, there is no point in
    saving them. Keep shooting until you reach the end of the tunnel.
    A cutscene comes on and there is a cool car crash. Snake and Otecon/Meryl
    are trapped under a car and who should climb out of the wreck -Liquid-
    I won't say what happened next,
    *******************************IT'S A SECRET!!!******************************
    One more thing if you are wondering about that last codec call with Ocelot

    In this section as the title may suggest is for cheats and hints. If any of
    these do not work tell me so I can change it or if there is something you know
    that I don't then tell me: mgsrocks@hotmail.com and I'll be sure to say your
