You may find a lot of "duh" | info in here, but it's better to have it than not. I've put more work into | this than any other guide I've done (even though I haven't done many). This | guide has about everything you need for the game and so far only has a few | tiny holes that will fill in shortly. That's only due to the fact that the | information in here has to be accurate. FYI, all directions (North, South, | South-East, etc.) are abbreviated (N, S, SE). Also, the guide may contain a | few teenie weenie spoilers. I said "teenie weenie." Relax. | | The game is actually a prequel to the first two Metal Gear Solid games, | taking place in 1964 just after the Cuban missile crisis over the course of | just two weeks. Your codename is Naked Snake; you had been sent on a mission | in Russia to rescue a scientist deep within the jungle. If successful, the | FOX organization might have become a recognized branch of U.S. defense. But | during the mission something went haywire. An American Davy Crockett | portable missile system had been stolen and the anti-government Brezhnev | faction used it to demolish a key military research facility. The Russian | leader Khrushchev blamed the US, on the grounds that A: it was an American- | made missile system and B: a U.S. aircraft signature was reported over | Russian airspace about an hour prior to the event. If proof of innocence is | not presented within a week, Russia will unleash a full-scale nuclear | holocaust on the United States. What, specifically, did Khrushchev have in | mind? The destruction of the U.S. defectant deemed responsible for the whole | catastrophe--The Boss. ____________ | CONTENTS | |¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ | 001 Controls | 002 Basics | .Health | .CQC | .Intrusion View | .Camouflage | .Cure | .Food | .Alert | .Suppressor | 003 Characters | .Snake | .Boss | .EVA | .Ocelot | .Volgin | .Zero | .Para-Medic | .Sigint | 004 Pre Game | .Difficulty | .No Kill | 005 Walkthrough | .Virtuous Mission | .Operation Snake Eater | 006 Post Game | .Statistics | .Rewards | 007 Weapons | 008 Items | 009 Camouflage | .Face paint | .Uniform | 010 Food | 011 Snake Vs.

Your | current health slowly regenerates at a rate determined by your Stamina (the | bar below it). Your maximum Health also increases very slowly as you play. | If you run out of health, Snake dies. You can also regain health by using a | Life Medicine. | | + Tip: it's better to wait for Health to recover by itself if possible, since | Life Medicine supplies are extremely limited throughout the game. | | Stamina governs a couple concepts of the game: 1) How fast your Health | recovers, and 2) your aiming accuracy. Stamina decreases very slowly over | time, but the decay can be sped up by actions like running, swimming, and | especially wounds and diseases. The speed at which stamina is lost through | movement has to do with the total weight equipped between weapons and items. | Stamina may be regained by eating, and is also affected in various ways by | some camouflage uniforms' effects. | | CQC | o Tap repeatedly for combo attack + knockdown | o With Left Analog Stick pressed in a direction, hit Circle to throw down | enemy and render him unconscious | o With Left Analog Stick neutral, hold Circle to put enemy in chokehold. From | chokehold: | - Use Left Analog Stick to drag enemy around | - Press L3 to interrogate enemy | - Firmly press Circle to slit enemy's throat | - Press Square to use equipped weapon while using enemy as a shield | - Tap Circle repeatedly to choke the enemy and knock him out | - Keep tapping Circle after he's unconscious to break his neck and kill him | - Use Left Analog Stick + Circle to throw enemy to the ground (won't KO) | + Tip: draw your gun when he's on the ground to hold him up | | TRANQUILIZING | By using the Mk22, you are able to knock out an enemy for a short period of | time. The speed at which the tranquilizer takes effect depends on the | placement of the darts and number of the darts. Getting a head or neckshot | will instantly drop them. Shooting them in the torso will take several | seconds to kick in, and shooting an appendage takes a very long time. If the | target does not go to sleep immediately, more tranquilizers can speed up the | process. They may also prolong the sleeping period, since after a little | while guards will begin to wake up. This takes several minutes at the least, | so even moving through an area very slowly should pose no problems. | | Dogs might awake if you go near them after they have been subdued. It's | better off to just kill the dogs. What the FCC don't know won't hurt em. | | SHOOTING SOLDIERS | Like when tranquilizing, a well-aimed bullet can kill in one blow to the | head. Chest shots take a few more hits, and arm/leg shots take even more | bullets. Additionally, hitting a soldier in their right arm will make them | drop their weapon, often resulting in their drawing a handgun if the arm is | not rendered useless. Shooting them directly in their radio near the left | shoulder will break it, preventing both incoming and outgoing calls. Even if | you cannot afford to kill anyone, using a lethal weapon to disable radio and | remove their weapon will not kill them but instead give you a greater | advantage. | | INTRUSION VIEW | Automatically engaged when crawling through thick grass and leaves and places | you can only travel through by crawling. You will be in FPV but without | restricted movement. You can enter FPV normally by pressing R1. Intrusion | view will cancel when you leave the covering or stand up. | | CAMOUFLAGE | Your Camo Index is at the top right of the screen. This shows the % of your | camouflaged-ness. Obviously the bigger the number the more hidden you are. | Choose the right camo and face paint for every environment you stay in for an | extended period. This means changing it often. There is a huge variety of | camouflage and its uses. See the camouflage section for all their locations | and effects. | | HOLD UP | Draw your gun from behind an enemy or in close proximity to one without his | seeing you to hold him up. He won't make any moves as long as it's aiming | towards him. You can hold an enemy up in FPV or out of it. | | CURE | Wounds restrict your maximum HP based on how many and to what extent your | injuries are. Telltale signs of an injury or sickness are bleeding, rapid | stamina loss, and the obvious red bar at the top of the screen. Injuries heal | slowly over time but can be cured partially or wholly by using either a | combination of or all the surgical items for each ailment. | | o Broken Bone: Splint + Bandage | o Cut: Styptic + Disinfectant + Suture Kit + Bandage | o Gunshot Wound: Knife + Styptic + Disinfectant + Bandage | o Burn: Ointment + Bandage | o Leech: Cigar | o Bullet Bee: Knife + Styptic + Disinfectant | o Arrow Bolt: Knife + Styptic + Bandage | o Hypodermic Needle: Knife | o (The medicinal cures are self-explanatory) | | + Tip: at the very least, extract all bullets with the knife, since you can't | run out of that surgical item. | | FOOD | Man's gotta eat. Eat to regain lost stamina. You can either find food on | guards occasionally or lying around encampments, but most of the time you'll | have to hunt for your food. By killing your food, it will spoil over time. | If food is tranquilized or caught with a mousetrap, it will never spoil, | obviously due to the fact that it is still alive. However, you only have 3 | cages to keep small animals in but many more spots for killed (rationed) | animals. Some large animals such as Indian Gavials and Markhors cannot be | caged, so tranquilizing them will automatically turn them into rations. The | time it takes for each food to rot depends on the type of food (i.e.: meat | spoils faster than plants). | | ALERT | There are 4 stages of an alert: no alert, caution, evasion, and alert. The | current alert status is displayed if there is any, and the counter shown | counts down to the next stage of alert. | o Alert Mode | - Activated if directly spotted by the enemy | - Enemies know where you are | - Additional enemies will come as long as the alert is active, up to a | certain point | - Counter goes down when you are completely out of sight (speed is | determined by the distance between you and the nearest enemy) | - Counter disappears completely when all enemies that know of your presence | are gone | | o Evasion Mode | - Activated by cancellation of Evasion mode | - Enemies don't know where you are but are more alert than usual and | patrol more aggressively | - No more enemies will come as long as this mode is active | - Counter goes down if you stay out of sight (speed " ") | - Counter disappears completely when all enemies are gone | | o Caution Mode | - Activated either by cancellation of Evasion mode, if an enemy hears | gunfire or is hit and not dropped, or if an unconscious soldier who knows | you are here is woken up, but didn't necessarily spot you | - Enemies may or may not increase in number, based on radio call status | - Enemies are slightly more alert than usual | - Counter goes down if you stay out of sight (speed " ") | - Counter disappears completely when all enemies that know of your presence | are gone | | RADIO | A radio call for support has different effects depending on the situation. | There are three types of radio calls: | o Alert Call | - If radio call is completed on alert mode, enemies will keep coming | until no more can be spared | - If radio call is interrupted, support group comes | | o Caution Call | - If radio call is completed, caution mode is activated, and may or may | not request support group | - If radio call is interrupted, support group comes | | o Support Call | - If radio call is completed, support group comes and may or may not | activate caution mode | - If radio call is interrupted, support group may or may not come | | + If a call is "interrupted," the soldier was taken out somewhere between | opening the call and completing it | | This seems like really vague information, but in reality the effects of all | radio calls are hard to predict. It's also hard to determine whether or not a | call in no alert mode will be a caution or support call, but every radio call | completed in alert mode will produce many enemies. Therefore, it is possible | to enter alert mode and, if all witness guards are removed before the link | has been opened, alert mode will cancel. Also, leaving the area will not | affect the alert status, but it will nullify all support calls made. If | chaff grenades, for example, are used before the link is opened, the call | doesn't count. __________________ | 003.Characters | |¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ | Jack | Codename: Naked Snake | Sex: Male | Age: Unknown | Nationality: U.S.A | Birthdate: Unknown | Birthplace: Unknown | Address: Unknown | The main focus of attention, Snake is one of the CIA's chief operatives as | well as FOX's pointman.

Free use of the EZ gun from | the start, where Camo Index stays at 80% regardless of anything and has | unlimited ammunition, although it has a one-bullet feed capacity. Maximum | ammo for weapons is on average 2x that of normal difficulty. Health starts at | about 75% and recovers quickly. | | EASY | Slightly more alert guards and a few more in number as compared to very easy. | EZ gun no longer available. Max ammo and health are the same as very easy. | | NORMAL | Average (game difficulty-wise) guards, numbers, and ammunition. Health starts | at about 50%. | | HARD | Guards are more aware, greater in number, and maximum ammo is about 1/2 that | of normal. Health is the same as normal. | | EXTREME (play through once to unlock) | Guards are completely aware and are very numerous. Maximum ammo is about the | same as hard, but health starts at about 25%. | | | //REWARDS | | Your status of time taken, alerts set off, people killed, etc. is constantly | being recorded throughout your adventure. Depending on what kind of | credentials you meet, you may get rewarded with several valuable items. Jump | to the Post Game section if you're aiming for a certain reward, but for the | first time playing it's best to not worry about these things and just enjoy | the story. And you can easily replay this, seeing as the game itself isn't | too long. ___________________ | 005.Walkthrough | |¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ | + The entire game takes place in Tselinoyask, Russia--"The Virgin Cliffs". | | //VIRTUOUS MISSION | | - Cutscene: Introduction / Mission Briefing / HALO Drop - | | DREMUCHIJ SOUTH | | /E/ 1.

Before you head N to engage them, | go W to a little side-area and pick up the SVD sniper rifle, your first | lethal weapon. Equip it from your Backpack in the Survival Viewer (Start). | Instructions are shown in the weapons window (R2) on operating it when the | gun is selected and the menu is open. It's best to go ahead and sneak around | and/or silently remove guards (this is crucial to success on higher | difficulties), but sometimes you might just have to face them. Remember that | if you hear a guard say "Who's that?" or something similar, first of all | don't move, crouch down, and hit him with more needles than a heroin druggie | if he comes close to you. If he doesn't move, he'll eventually say something | along the lines of "I must be seeing things" to let you know when you're in | the clear. | | + Look over the Basics section for more information on dealing with soldiers. | | When shooting at any and everybody in this game, always aim for the head or | right in the ol' jugular. If you're using a lethal weapon, a headshot will | take them out in one hit. The same applies to tranqs. When shooting the chest | and limbs, bullets will mysteriously kill them after so many, but it takes a | much more. A tranquilizer put in a chest or limb takes so much longer than | one put in the head. You either wait for it to kick in or waste more darts to | speed it up. | | + Tip: try picking up bodies with Square. The fallen guards may drop various | supplies when picked up. | | DOLINOVODNO | | - Cutscene: Hornets - | | __/E|___ 1. XM16E1 | /G \ 2. Mk22 Bullet | (| G | 3.

Grab | the M37 after you've KO'd the guard near the bottom of the stairs. With the | shotgun you're the life of the party, which obviously attracts unwanted | attention. You can either be a spy or get your Rambo on. Move E along the | fence and remove the guard on the E side of the building. Climb up the | ladder, and at the top, shoot any potential problems in the neck before | jumping onto the deck below and getting the Life Medicine if you need it | before approaching the door.

Of course, this doesn't really matter since there's nothing | of significance here to come back to anyhow. | | - Cutscene: Sokolov / Secret Weapon - | | Tom will call to check up on your standings with the mission.

Be a glutton and catch every | animal that moves. | | + Tip: You have 3 cages and a multitude of ration slots. If you kill or | tranquilize animals that won't fit in a cage, it will be stored as a ration. | Rations will spoil over time, so be sure to eat it before it spoils or throw | it out when it does (if it's spoiled, the animal icon next to its name will | have changed). However, if you tranquilize an animal small enough to occupy | a cage, you can keep it and eat it whenever you wish without any fear of its | going bad. | | Additionally, getting the Markhor codename (catch every animal) is about | CATCHING, not killing, which means even animals you've captured in a cage, | even if you set them free, will still be checked off the list. | | DREMUCHIJ NORTH II | Jump off the ledge to the N, go E, and... | | - Cutscene: Go Home American - | | The Boss just blew up your ride and f'n broke your gun (that's not all, you | had a pantload of suppressors with you!). What a bitch! First things first, | get down and hide. Guards are gonna come runnin when they see that mess you | made. Lay down beside the N passage and wait until they investigate the | crash. You can sneak by them, which will eventually raise a caution alert, or | you can throw a stun grenade at them before they call in to HQ for smooth | sailing. From there, go to the W fork and crawl between the sentries using | the grass and other obstacles as cover. Taking them on here isn't a smart | idea with only your knife and grenades, but if you simply can't resist, who | am I to say no? | | DOLINOVODNO II | Same ol, same ol, we're back at the bridge. It seems like Kojima compensated | for your lost gun by making the guards blind and deaf. Either way, you can | literally run up behind the guy on the bridge before taking him out with a | CQC throw--that is, if you don't fall off the bridge. After you do, drop off | the side near the end to get to the cave underneath (or crawl around to it). | Under there is the Raindrop uniform, Life Med, and some smoke grenades. Watch | out for the guy patrolling the path to the cave. If you fell down, you have | the advantage of taking him out from behind (assuming he's facing N). | | RASSVET II | Rest assured, this place is devoid of enemies. Grab the smoke grenades to the | NW, AK-47 up the stairs, the bug juice on the E side, Zombie face paint | behind the warehouse, and the cardboard box atop the crates. If you've got | some free time, keep calling Sigint with the box on. Once you squeeze a | reaction out of him, call him with anything else you fancy equipped. In the | room S of Sokolov's there's a Mine Detector in the SE corner. Enter Sokolov's | quarters, open the locker to the SW, Thermal Goggles are inside. What, did | you actually expect him to still be there? Exit. | | + Tip: if you're unsure about any camouflage just call Sigint when you put | it on. He'll also tell you the details of and possibly the history behind | any weapons you have equipped. | | - Cutscene: Who Are The Patriots? - | | Para-Medic will second EVA's notion for your rest. Hm... I wonder why EVA | didn't say the password... | | - Save Prompt 02 - | | - Cutscene: Wakeup Call - | | The guards outside are ready to kick your ass. That is, if they can find it. | The only way to go through with this is to immediately go under the bed and | have stun grenades ready. Toss one immediately when the door opens. If that | doesn't knock out 4 guards, keep tossing them (not all at once) until you're | stuck with 4 less enemies. From there, go down through the trap door in the | corner (Triangle) and shoot the guards on the E side and the one right in | front of the opening due S of you. You'll probably make several leg shots | that will take several seconds to get the job done. Don't bother wasting your | suppressor here, it won't do anything. Make your way to the E side and find | a spot where you can safely take the roofer out. Climbing up the ladder | without his seeing you is doable, but tricky. Either way, taking out the few | guards left from the roof is usually easy pickins with the exceptions of the | stragglers on the W sector of the complex. Once all of them have been | disposed of, raid the bodies for loot and go to the NE sector to initiate a | cutscene. | | - Custcene: Bitch's Perfume - | | Walk on to Chyornyj Prud. | | CHYORNYJ PRUD | This place is guard-free too. All you have to worry about are those damn | leeches and crocs. You'll pick up a leech every couple strokes in the water | without your bug spray on. You'll have to burn every single last prick off | with a cig in the Cure menu if you don't. Once in the water, swim underneath | the submerged log to the left, turning any croc that comes within 100 feet | of you into swiss cheese (yes, you can use guns underwater...). On land | you'll get a call from EVA. Blah Blah. Climb the tree and hang from the | branch. Work your way across the tightline until you come to another rope | underneath you. Drop down and catch it, then continue onto the island to | receive your honorary croc club hat. Really useful later on. Afterwards, go | to the next area through either exit; they both lead to the same place. | | BOLSHAYA PAST SOUTH | There are two guards up front, which you should be able to drop no problemo | without crossing to the other side of the fence. Shooting the transformers on | either end of the fence will disable the electric current for those of you | that can't help not running into it. If you see Claymores on the ground (the | small boxes; use thermals if you can't see them), just crawl over them to | pick them up. Now, STEPPING on one is a whole other story. On top of | receiving damage as well as nasty burns, it'll trigger a caution alert. Now | onto doggy style. Shoot out any dogs you see from here on, whether they're | sleeping or not. They'll bring attention to you if you go anywhere near them. | They'll also find you anywhere if they've picked up your scent; camo doesn't | do any good. Sometimes the guards nearby will hear the death whine of a dog | you shot and go to check on Sparky. Pop em. Make your way E to the mud and | disable the guard you see halfway through. Step on the small ledge on the | right and at the end of it is the Splitter camo uniform. Shoot anyone else | visible from that point. Continue N to d-bo the Choco Chip uniform from the | hollowed stump past the fence, and head up the NW path to exit. | | BOLSHAYA PAST BASE | Jump inside the trench and crawl around, picking up the Snow face paint along | the way. Head over to the large building, taking out every guard that comes | within sight of the trench, and climb up to the roof to receive the Water | uniform. There are a lot of guards to take out here; only take out the ones | with a clear view of the trench. But if you get lucky, the guards will keep | checking on the ones on the ground, allowing you to claim about half the camp | from one spot. Once you meet a guy at the N mounted machine gun, hold him at | gunpoint or whatever game you want to play with him before removing him. Yes, | those big beautiful guns look tempting but so much as one bullet fired will | raise an alarm if anybody's still up and about. Either exit the area, or if | you want to take the time to explore the buildings you'll an M19 SP in the | main building, food and a mousetrap in the one N of it, and ammo, grenades, | and TNT in the NE armory. Otherwise, move on. | | + Tip: if you engage the enemy here or anywhere else, blowing up armories | like the one in the NE corner here will severely limit their firepower and | thus inflict less damage to your person. Blow them up either with the | machine gun or TNT you found. It should only take about 2 or 3 explosives to | ignite the building. | | BOLSHAYA PAST CREVICE | | BOSS BATTLE: OCELOT | | + Tip: always remember to take off suppressors during boss battles | | Also, the Mk22 pistol and stun grenades won't take off a boss's health but | his/her stamina instead. Draining bosses' stamina instead of killing them | won't add to your kill count and additionally will leave you with a goodie | most of the time. | | o Stalling him: | - Shoot his hat off | - Shoot down a local wasp nest | - Walk to the N edge of the stage to initiate a quick-draw duel | o Ammo is mainly in SE corner; WP grenades are on top of tree | o Stamina kill: Animal uniform | | Welcome to your first boss battle of the game. Camouflage does nothing here, | you ninny. The only thing keeping you safe from his bullets are trees, rocks, | and woodland creatures, although you can still get hit anywhere with | ricochet. The techniques used to beat him couldn't be any more basic--just | shoot him when he peeks his head out and when he decides to reload in the | open. On higher difficulties you'll need to take cover from his shots. | Ducking behind the rock on the left is usually the best choice. But on normal | and easier you can just stand still and take it if you're not a horrible | shot. He can't hide if you're on top of the tree branch, but keep in mind | that shooting from there makes you an easy target as well. Only try this if | you have excellent accuracy--if you shoot him first you won't be hit. | Defeating him non-lethally (depleting his stamina rather than his life) will | earn you an Animals camo uniform. It's similar to the Choco Chip but has even | better coverage and grants non-shaky hands when holding a gun, regardless of | stamina position. A camo well worth the effort (my 2nd most favoritest camo). | | - Cutscene: OFF, Anyone? - | | CHYOMAYA PESCHERA BRANCH | You've passed another PONR. Don't forget to pick up your Animals uniform if | you defeated Ocelot with tranqs (first time playing I did it by accident | thinking I had my M19 out). Light up a cigar and take first the left path, | then go for a dip in the lake. Some ammo's at the bottom. Swim through the | passage underwater to emerge in another part of the cave. In there you'll | find the Night Vision Goggles and some rations. A battery and AK-47 ammo is | on land at the N end of the pool (thanks to atstravis). Backtrack to the 1st | room, equipping the NVG if necessary. Take the right fork this time, then go | left. Continue on to reach 2 waterfalls. Between them is a box containing a | torch. You can use this instead of NVG if you want to conserve battery |(although it will recharge over time), but keep in mind that usage in guard- | ridden areas makes you attractively visible. You can also use it as a weapon |(more entertainment than functional) to light the enemy ablaze. Backtrack a | little until you come to a crawlspace to the right. As vague as these | directions are you'll be able to find it. From here on it's pretty much one | direction without any note-worthy finds. | | CHYOMAYA PESCHERA CAVE | At the fork in the beginning, go right and enter the surprisingly roomy | crawlspace after picking up the M37 shotgun and Mk22 ammo. Gut any tasty | seafood you see along the way. Upon reaching the roof extension, grab the | Snow uniform and continue crawling. Nab some smoke grenades and meet up with | The Pain. | | BOSS BATTLE: HORNET SOLDIER - THE PAIN | o Attacks: | - hornet armor (invincible) | - hornet sting | - grenade | - hornet suit (you're immobilized) | - tommy gun | - bullet bee | o Ammo is on the rocks, grenades are in water. | o Stamina kill: Hornet uniform | | The Pain can be pretty mean and bumpy to strangers. You're in for an easy | brawl, seeing as he absolutely doesn't move the entire time. To start, simply | pelt him in the noggin with whatever you please. After a few he'll enter | pissy buzzy Hornet Armor mode--all attacks are neutralized. Throw any grenade |(besides chaff or smoke, brainiac) somewhere near him to blow it off, then | continue to plug the bug. If you toss a grenade when he's without armor, the | wasps may catch it and bring it back to you. Eventually Pain will sick his | buggers at you, at which point you should swim with the fishes. He'll also | whip out his tommy for you (oh! so big!). You can either throw a trusty | grenade the second he shouts out "Tommy Gun" or dive into the water for | safety (lucky you--this is a Japanese game; all the characters shout out | their attacks before using them). When in the water, you can occasionally pop | up to shoot him, but you can't grenade him too well. Climb back up on any | rock when it's safe. When you've got him down to 1/2 health or stamina he'll | launch his bullet bees (seen with red trails) which take off a serious amount | of health. They can be easily avoided when seen coming by--guess what--a dip | in the lake. Frankly, I don't even know why you're using a strategy guide for | this bastard. | | Afterwards, step onto the thin ledge to the right of the exit, and at the top | roll onto the middle platform The Pain's camo is on if you tranqed him. This | grants you dominion over bugs and other various creepy crawlies. If you | squashed him with bullets, you missed out on some cool useless camo. | | CHYOMAYA PESCHERA CAVE ENTRANCE | | - Cutscene: Search Party - | | Nothing much here. You'll find some D-Meds from the fruits lying around at | the beginning. You'll also find some ammo for the Mk22, M19, and AK-47. Just | watch out for the Claymores near it. Afterwards, walk on through. | | PONIZOVJE SOUTH | Now would be a great time to try on that handy dandy Croc Cap. When swimming, | you're invisible with the Croc Cap is on, regardless of camo. Even if you're | standing up when a searchlight passes onto you, crouch down quickly and go | about your bisnass. About halfway through, pick up some chaffies underwater | and head W. | | PONIZOVJE WEST | Take out the guards from the water before climbing to the pier. Easy as cake. | Inside the room is an SVD sniper rifle, TNT, grenades, and ammo. Backtrack. | | PONIZOVJE SOUTH | Swim north to the warehouse with your Croc Cap still on. | | PONIZOVJE WAREHOUSE: EXTERIOR | | - Cutscene: Russian Roulette - | | There are 3 guards here which pose no problem. For some reason your Croc Cap | works here too. Once they're limp, step onto the barges to collect AK-47 and | Mk22 ammo and stun grenades. Behind the crates you'll find some Night Vision | Goggles if you missed them in the cave. | | PONIZOVJE WAREHOUSE | There are 3 guards here, too: one at the bottom of the small stairs, one | patrolling the far crates, and one near the top of the larger staircase. | Knock out the first two and you can take the third out from the left wall by | moving very slowly. Make sure backup doesn't come. Grab the Desert face paint | behind some boxes to the S. Notice the door at the bottom of the stairs you | just went down. You'll have to come back to it eventually. Pick up a Mk22 SP | pack atop the stack of boxes by jumping over the rail above it. Behind the | door halfway up the tall stairs is some Noodles, a Calorie Mate, and a | mousetrap. Skeedaddle. | | GRANINY GORKI SOUTH | Here you'll find a lot of bad eats, but you will find a few Instant Noodles | spread about and a book (Japanese spread models; not exactly my taste but | still entertaining). You can throw those about to distract some horny guards. | The rope-triggered traps here you can crawl under or roll over, and snare | traps--the ones that pick you up and dangle you by your feet--can be disarmed | with Triangle. Pitfalls can be ran over, just don't stop. Whatever you do, do | NOT stop or de good Lawd have amussy on your soul. All traps can be easily | seen with Thermal Goggles, strangely. Don't bother going through here setting | off all the suspiciously placed traps; they'll just be reset later. | | GRANINY GORKI LAB EXTERIOR: OUTSIDE WALLS | Kill the dog first and then you can easily take out the other guards. Crawl | through the hole in the fence to the far left. Once you're sure everybody's | takin a break (by that I mean they're dead, etc.), pick up an M19 SP on the | W wall. The crawlspace below you is quicker but the other way's easier. If | you go to the E side, you'll find a door. Locked. No problem, just ask | somebody to let you in. Put your back up against the door and knock on it | with Circle. Then, play a little ding dong ditch by diving into the grass on | your right. Shoot him when he opens the door. Sucka. | | GRANINY GORKI LAB EXTERIOR: INSIDE WALLS | If you went through the door, crawl along the outside wall to reach the grass | patch right in front of the door (not the big doors, the smaller one to the | right). There should be a guard patrolling the area. Pop him. There are also | a few walking around way on the other side of the area. These are the guards | you'll see up close if you went through the crawlspace. Take them out either | way. Head to the NE armory to find TNT and M19, M37, and AK-47 ammo and | reunite with your badass XM16E1. Exit the shack and you'll find some | claymores and smoke g's on the back of the W wall past the guards. Go about | halfway down the wall and you'll find a crawlspace to enter the lab. Take off | your facepaint and slap on that Scientist uniform EVA gave you. With that on | it's like Where's Waldo. You're impossible to find. You can either get the | Oyama face paint by using the crawlspace or you can just go through the front | door if you don't really feel like collecting the goofiest face paint ever. | | GRANINY GORKI LAB 1F | Crawl through the ducts and pick up the Oyama face paint. Keep going until | you reach the courtyard. Go through the door to the W. In the lab, don't | start anything. To not make trouble with any guards, say, if you run into one | or make a weird motion, look them in the eye when they yell at you. Leave | when they tell you to. And don't do anything that would obviously get you | shot at. Also, don't let any scientists see your face. If they look at you, | turn your back and leave. Of course, if for some reason you wanna take anyone | out whether it be guard or 4 eyes scientist, do it from behind and hide the | body in a locker, for instance, when no one's looking so as not to raise a | caution alert. Anyways, if you need some supplies, head downstairs to B1 | East. If not, head upstairs to 2F. | | GRANINY GORKI LAB B1 EAST | In the guard's office you'll find Mk22 bullets and some Antidotes. Under his | desk is M19 and M37 ammo. Go to the end of the hall and into the 2nd prison | cell. When no one's looking, crawl under the bed to pick up a Life Med. | There's nothing in the ducts. A mousetrap is in the 3rd cell. When you're | done snooping head back up the stairs. | | GRANINY GORKI LAB 1F | Keep going upstairs. | | GRANINY GORKI LAB 2F | Go N. In the first door you'll find a Mk22 SP. In the 2nd you'll find the | bathroom. Notice the last stall is locked. When no one is around punch the | shit out of the door. It'll pop off (and possibly crush you in the process) | and inside is the Fly camo. Sweet! Awesome! Idiot! In the hall, go to the end | and check the first two lockers on the left to find XM16 and AK-47 ammo. Go | through the door if you didn't pick up the Choco Chip uniform in Bolshaya | Past South. Else, go back and head SW. In the next door you come to a Calorie | Mate and two Instant Noodles are laying around. In the last door you'll find | another balcony. Here you'll find a book. That's everything on the 2F. You | can drop off the balcony for fun or go back down the stairs. Either way is | fairly safe. | | GRANINY GORKI LAB 1F | Go S and in the 3rd locker you'll find some M19 bullets. Go into the | library--the door across from the lockers--and pick up Med supplies. Be | careful of the scientist. Here, I think it's easier to just KO throw him from | behind with your labcoat off, but only if it's mano-y-mano. No one else can | see you. If you removed the outfit, put it back on and exit. Move W, N, then | W through the lobby and down the stairs to B1 West. | | GRANINY GORKI LAB B1 WEST | Go in the door on your right and the end of the hallway to pick up the Cigar | Gas Spray. This is really the only weapon you can use as a scientist, plus | it's non-lethal. Exit and go into the door across the hall. There's another | dude in here too. Light up a Cuban in his face (the gas spray one...). Go | into the next room, stepping over the geek's limp body. Here, just avoid | the poindexters rather than try to knock them out. There's a battery right | when you walk in. Run down the isle like you don't wanna get married and meet | up with your next objective. | | - Cutscene: Nice Shoes / Philosopher's Legacy - | | Now make your way through to the stairs. Easy as it was walking in. | | GRANINY GORKI LAB 1F | Run through the computer area. In the room after that, immediately use the | Cig Spray after opening the door. Then, just go back to the duct in the | courtyard. It's a lot easier to leave through there than it is the front | door. | | GRANINY GORKI LAB EXTERIOR: INSIDE WALLS | Take your scientist coat off and for Pete's sake smear something on your | face. Do the same thing you did before, only backwards. Take out all the | guards then exit through the hole to the SW. | | GRANINY GORKI LAB EXTERIOR: OUTSIDE WALLS | Same goes for here, too. Nothing's changed. Take out any guards you see and | prepare for a fight. | | GRANINY GORKI SOUTH | | BOSS BATTLE: SPIDER SOLDIER - THE FEAR | o Ammo is everywhere | o Stamina kill: Spider uniform | | First and foremost, Cure the venom and remove and bandage the bolt. Once | that's taken care of, take out your Thermal Goggles--you'll rely on them | heavily throughout the battle. He'll pretty much stay in the trees, and stop | occasionally for you to shoot him while he shoots back at you. If you're | using a blood thirsty full auto, it'll be over pretty fast, but using the | Mk22 takes a little longer. Both ways are incredibly easy, seeing as your | shots deal more damage than it did on Pain. The only difference is The Fear | will start to look for food when his stamina gets low. Shoot up some Poison | Dart Frogs and poisonous mushrooms for him to snack on (with a lethal | weapon). He's a lousy shot, so whipping him up some poisonous food even while | he's firing like a maniac is still a walk in the park. He will eat everything | you prepare when he's hungry. Plus, he's very vulnerable when climbing down | to look for some food. But get too close to him on the ground and he'll bowl | you over. Think of this as "training" for your next big showdown. This battle | will be over quickly if you don't set off too many traps on yourself. | | After it's over, go SW a little to pick up the Spider camo if you tranqed | him. It gives 80% coverage ANYWHERE but drains stamina very fast. If you want | to get the Infinity Face Paint the easy (*cough* cheater) way, place | mousetraps around here to pick up a goofy looking Tsuchinoko. You'll have to | constantly check the traps (a jingle will signal something is caught) and | reset them for a solid 10 min before you get Mr. T. Make sure he stays alive. | | + To the best of my knowledge, there's only one Tsuchinoko in the game, so | eating it when trying to get the IFP is a huge no-no. | | PONIZOVJE WAREHOUSE | We're back here to enter the previously locked door. But if you want a little | something special, you'll have to go the extra mile. In order to get the | Water face paint, you'll have to backtrack all the way to Ponizovje South |(the river). I'm not gonna lead you step by step. Just look underwater near | the entrance to Peschera Cave. BTW, all the guards that were patrolling the | river have left, so there's no skill involved, only patience. Anyway, getting | through the warehouse is the first priority. There's no one on the top level | where you are. From the edge of the catwalk, you should be able to take out | all the guards on the ground floor with your silencer on if they all go to | check on each other. That just leaves the guy on the 2nd level. Get in the SE | corner beside the staircase and while crouching hit him when he's at the end | of his walkway (it's a tough shot). From there, either go get the Water face | paint or go through the previously locked door to Svyatogornyj. It's that | sliding door right next to the one you came through on your first visit here. | | SVYATOGORNYJ SOUTH | Take a few steps and you'll get a call from EVA. There aren't any guards in | the area. Just stock up on food, wait for health to recover, take a break if | you need it. There's a book around here somewhere... | | SVYATOGORNYJ WEST | This isn't necessarily tough to get by here, it's just the fact that the | guards don't stand out too well. There's quite a handful of them around here. | Use thermals if you need any help. Make your way north using the grass, logs, | rocks, whatever for cover. There're no items here, so go on through without | searching. At the fork ahead, take a detour and go E instead of N, where your | target is. | | SVYATOGORNYJ EAST | Head E so you won't have to deal with any guards in the woods and carefully | make your way to the cottage. There's only a few guards outside that need to | be removed. Only shoot at them if you can take em out in one hit. You don't | want support arriving, not here. Crawl underneath the supports and in the | very back, towards the center, there's a door you can climb through. Claim | your M63. There's someone walking around; be careful if you're going through | the rooms. He's pretty loud, though, so you'll know if he's near. You can | find some SPs if you check the place out. Leave through the door in the floor | you came through. The storage shed to the NW has 2 Calorie Mates and a | Ration. When you're satisfied, go SW and return to Svy W. | | SVYATOGORNYJ WEST | Head N, avoiding everyone as best you can. Half of the guards behind you you | won't have to worry about unless you trigger an alarm. You've only got a few | of them between you and Sokrovenno. | | SOKROVENNO | | BOSS BATTLE: ANCIENT SNIPER - THE END | o Favorite hiding spots: | - Sokrovenno South: high ledge just right of the path to Sokrovenno North | (to get there, go to Sokrovenno North, go E up a large hill, then S to | come back out on the ledge) | - Sokrovenno North: on any of the places on the N ledge | o Hiding spot giveaways: | - He gives off heat (thermals, geenious) | - He will doze off if you take too long finding him (plus he snores) | - His scope sometimes reflects sunlight at you (look for a small flash) | - His bald noggin sticks out a little. | o Ammo is in armory in Sokrovenno South | o Stamina kill: Mosin Nagant | | After you finish your chit chat with EVA, the fight will start. I'll say it | up front: if you absolutely DO NOT want to fight this dude, save your game, | and you can either wait 10 days in the real world or set your PS2 clock 10 | days ahead. When you open your game, it turns out The End is dead. But if you | do this you forego the Moss camo--one of the best--and his Mosin Nagant | sniper rifle--also the best (even though you don't get to keep the Nagant | when starting a new game anyways). This fight is very time consuming and | extremely aggravating. First off, look at the map. He's hiding in one of | several sniper spots. The possible locations will appear on the map as | circles. Your job is to find him. He should be on the ledge due N of your | position when you start off. If he fires, you're in sight of him. Crawling | around everywhere can't hurt when you don't know where he is. Running around | will definitely get you shot. If you are shot, be sure to remove the needle | immediately to prevent rapid stamina loss. Look on the map again--it'll show | where he's hiding whenever he fires. He'll more than likely stay put until | you fire back at him or he sees you come close to him. | | + It's rumored that shooting down his parrot on top of the armory in the S | section will stop the End from regaining stamina while not moving. | | Baldy will almost always be laying down in tall grass even though he has been | guilty of crouching behind the occasional rock or something. It doesn't | matter. Just sneak around behind him. Once you manage to track him down, | either by using the techniques above or by pure luck of guessing, DON'T | CHARGE HIM, GO AROUND you big ninny. Hold him at gunpoint until he surrenders | his Moss uniform (try aiming your gun at him, jerking the gun to the side, | then aiming at him again a few times). With this you gain 100% Camo Index | laying in grass plus you regain stamina in sunlight! Anyway, shoot the | bastard once he coughs it up. This is where the battle is won or lost. He'll | get up, throw a stun (turn your back) and run. Fill him up, leaded please. | Attach your thermals and follow him, shooting as you go with a lethal weapon, | even if you're not gonna kill him. He'll surprisingly outrun you, but the | more you shoot him the more he'll stall, allowing you to get in more trigger | time (stamina kill: pull out the Mk22 when he gets close). If you manage to | catch up beside him he'll throw another stun. You can keep up the process, | but if he does manage to get away, put your thermals on--his tracks glow. If | you don't hurry, the footprints will lose their heat distribution. Also, | watch his stamina. When it's draining fast he's on the move. When it stops | he's waiting for you. So don't just follow his footsteps blindly. Again, | check your map. Check it often. When you see the prints leading you straight | to a sniper spot sneak around behind him. Shoot him in the back as many times | as you can before repeating the chase process and receiving chastisement for | shooting an old fart from behind (alternatively, he'll praise you if you | snipe HIM). | | + Whenever you sneak up on him, take time to look at all the tranquilizer | darts on him if you used the Mk22. Like a porcupine. | | Since you're watching his stamina, aggressively pursue him when he's runnin | on empty. He'll start to hunt, and that's the last thing you want. One meal | and he's back at his peak and the battle starts all over again. Lastly, if | End holds YOU up you'll be put in a cell back at the looney bin in the | Graniny Gorki lab. Just don't lose track of the End and you'll wipe the floor | with his grimy geriatric ass sooner than you think. | | To show the dead guy what a good sport you are, shoot down his pretty parrot | pal on top of the armory and eat it if you haven't already. Or you can just | cabbage patch. Whatever you do, don't forget to pick up his Mosin Nagant in | the middle of Sokrovenno North if you tranqed him and the SVD in the armory | if you passed it in Ponizovje. | | KRASNOGORJE TUNNEL | When Kojima decided to push the limits of the PS2, he did it in the most | unthinkably maniacal way possible: to put a ladder in the game that you never | reach the end of... Well, you do... eventually. Set the controller face down | so that it's pushing up on the left analog stick. In the time it takes to | climb MGS3's ladder of doom you could be saving on hundreds in car insurance. | Why haven't you called GEICO yet? | | KRAZNOGORJE MOUNTAIN BASE | Another PONR. This is the toughest area to get by so far. When you get to the | large open area go to prone and grenade the guard in the ledge right ahead of | you (you may not see him but toss one over anyway). From there, snipe the guy | on that high point on the rock wall. There should be a crawlspace near the | first guy you removed. Go through it and you'll be on that killer position. | Toss the guy over if you want to. From there you can easily take out anyone | you need to. Don't bother shooting everything that moves. In this area the | guards will pretty much stay put; shoot only the guards that are directly in | your way. Pick up ammo underneath the archway rock near the exit. | | KRAZNOGORJE MOUNTAINSIDE | Take extra caution that you don't invoke the wrath of the almighty Hind | chopper. That's the last thing you want happening. If a guard sees you, you | could be looking at a missile aiming right between your butt cheeks from that | eye in the sky. Use the many holes in the mountainside to work your way | around the guards and at the top, there are two ledges that lead to the small | camp to the W. If you get on the higher one you can pick up some Mosin tranqs | and snipe the guards below with either gun, but watch your back; the guards | will check that spot. If you don't mind killing, set a claymore behind you to | discourage them from finding you. But if all else fails, there are several | mounted machine guns on the mountain... Check the shacks for lots of cool | goodies, including the coveted RPG. Lots of fun with this gun. | | KRAZNOGORJE MOUNTAINTOP | Just like in Bolshaya Past base, jump in that trench and wreak havoc from | there. As long as you are very careful of the few guards patrolling the | trench you should have no problem. Use the small holes linking the trench to | the supply sheds to your advantage. Here, too, you don't need to take out | every guard, just the ones that are necessary. You shouldn't need to remove | more than half the guards. EVA's waiting for you in that shack at the top. | | KRAZNOGORJE MOUTNAINTOP RUINS | | - Cutscene: Wild Beast / Groznyj Grad - | | KRAZNOGORJE MOUNTAINTOP: BEHIND RUINS | Head back through the building, collecting ammo and noodles on the way, and | out to the base. | | KRAZNOGORJE MOUNTAINTOP | There's more enemies now than there were, including flamethrowers. Shoot | their backpacks for a laugh or you could just sneak as usual. This time | you're aiming for that red door halfway up the encampment. | | GROZNYJ GRAD UNDERGROUND TUNNEL | Stock up on lethal ammo at the bottom of the stairs and Mk22 bullets near the | barrels on the catwalk. Continue to the left and climb down the ladder. | | BOSS BATTLE: FLAME SOLDIER - THE FURY | o Ammo is found everywhere | o Stamina kill: Fire uniform | | Don't worry, this is nothing like The End. The Fury's much easier. Very easy. | In fact, you shouldn't lose any life to him. There's really no strategy | here besides to put on black camo and don't even hide--just find a spot | at either end of a hallway, crouch, and when he noisily clanks on by nail him | as many times as you can. Then just run and pick another spot to shoot when | he sets everything on fire. If you're caught on fire, just roll. But you can | easily avoid the fire if you keep your distance from him. | | Yet another PONR, as indicated by the now-blocked passageway. Pick up the | Fire camo if you tranqed him and proceed. The only place you use this is... | well... fighting Fury! Really there's no real reason to get this other than | to just expand your collection. Snake's backpack is really starting to bulge | with all that crap in it. Hard to believe he has an RPG and sniper rifles in | there. They must be collapsible. | | GROZNYJ GRAD SOUTHEAST | | - Cutscene: The Fortress - | | This area isn't that tough to get through. For now, anyway. Don't worry. All | guards are in easy access and usually hang out in the open spaces where you | have plenty of room to shoot at them if they suspect something's up. I won't | cover all the sections of the exterior of Groznyj Grad but feel free to | explore, although there's nothing really valuable to find. Go to the door | roughly N of your starting position. | | GROZNYJ GRAD NORTHEAST | Go around to your right and head for that red door somewhere to the N. Don't | get caught in the spotlight. | | GROZNYJ GRAD WEAPONS LAB: EAST WING | Same thing as the lab: put on your Scientist coat and take off your face | paint. Only here you can't explore the entire place completely unguarded. You | need to find Raikov. Who? It's the only dude with blonde hair. I'd recommend | doing this before tearing the place apart looking for goodies. Once you find | him (I guess it's a him...), follow him/it until he goes to the lockers | upstairs, knock it out, kill him, or do both when nobody's around. | | - Cutscene: Goodnight Blondie - | | Was he sportin the g-string? Anyway, put on his uniform and--hey! Put on | that phenomenally convenient mask you've had with you this whole time. You're | the big cheese now, do whatever you want. Crawl everywhere, salute plants, | drop a log in the toilet without flushing, or even beat the living shit out | of anybody and they won't do anything as long as you're Raikov. An XM16 SP is | in the 5th locker, 1st row. There are also a few rations in some other | lockers. On the 1st floor in the previously off limits NE room you'll find a | Scorpion, Mk22 SP, and ammo. In the room right below the stairs there are | med supplies and in the SE room a mousetrap is on the crates. In the library | there's a book on the floor (hm...) and in the bathroom there's nothing. | Well, besides the usual urinal lineup, piss stains and such. Go through the | door at the bottom of the locker room. | | GROZNYJ GRAD WEAPONS LAB: MAIN WING | Go through the long hallway after sneaking a peek at the famed Shagohod and | enter through the door at the end. | | GROZNYJ GRAD WEAPONS LAB: WEST WING CORRIDOR | Walk up to the sentries in all your royalness to trigger a long intermission. | | - Cutscene: Phase 2 / Lost Hope / Fairy Disguise - | | - Save Prompt 03 - | | GROZNYJ GRAD TORTURE ROOM | | - Cutscene: Torture Room / Defaced - | | For a little bonus, save your game here and reset. You're in for a surprise | when you load it. Trust me, you'll be happy you didn't miss it. When you | regain consciousness, you'll find you're stripped of all your belongings and | you're in your birthday suit, but at least the gents gave you a fork. | Apparently they don't know U.S. seals are trained in the ancient art of fork. | The guard will toss you food every so often. Plan your escape once you've had | your fill. Remove the transmitter and fake death pill from your body through | the Survival Viewer. Once again, as always, you have an option as to your | mode of escape, but the first way is more fun: 1) Wait until he gives you | some rotten food, then throw it back at him through the hole. He'll eat it | and--uh oh, mudslide's a'comin. Call the frequency Sorrow gave you in the | cutscene if you went to FPV: 144.75, or: 2)Just use the fake death pill and | revive yourself the instant he leaves. Unleashing fork-fu on him is another | option but has a high alarm chance. You can't make it through this area with | an alert if you're playing on the difficult levels. Zero will call you when | you exit, but don't pick up if you're not in a talky mood. Notice that from | now on you can't see completely in FPV; the right side is blocked. It doesn't | really put you at that much of a disadvantage though. Also take note that for | some jewish reason you can't CQC anymore. You can find a camera in the | guard's office. With this you can take pictures of damn near anything and | save them on your memory card. You get to keep the camera when you start a | new game. Pick up some med supplies in his bedroom if you need any, then exit | through the W hallway. As long as you left without his seeing you in person | or the empty cell you're safe. | | GROZNYJ GRAD SOUTHEAST | The SAA you have for some reason is the very essence of cool. Why? Not only | can you spin the right analog stick with it equipped to play with it, but | when shooting it, you can ricochet bullets off walls to hit people like | Ocelot did. Only difference is, you need practice. Now the only thing you | need are bullets. You'll find SAA ammo around here in various locations; some | you can pick up from guards (use the KO roll rather than the throw). When you | head around the building to the right pick just pick up Cardboard Box C. If | you want to get some SAA bullets, hop down in the drainage tunnel just N of | the building (you'll have to take out that guard N of the cardboard box). But | that way brings you a lot farther away from your objective than just going | through the crawlspace in the wall to the W. Either way, you'll end up in the | same area, but in different starting positions. You can also take the door, | but there's no advantage there. | | GROZNYJ GRAD NORTHEAST | If you manage to make it to the door on the W in one piece, go through it by | all means. But there are some guards you just can't sneak by. This is where | the cardboard box comes into play. If you hear "Who's that?" then throw on | your Sunday best and wait till they come over to check you out. They will | first kick the box then peer inside. Give em hell when they lift it off. This | doesn't let you get by without raising any alarms, just taking out guards | individually without support coming. Don't just leave your box if they take | it off you when you're done with them. But all in all it's better just to not | even get caught. Head W. | | GROZNYJ GRAD NORTHWEST | The sewer entrance you're aiming for is in the NE corner. You're gonna have | to go near the tanks on the left to get by the searchlight. It's pretty easy | sneaking around the people patrolling here. It's the dogs that are the | problem. You can shoot them if you have bullets, but that'll raise caution. | The obvious choice is to just not go near them; if you do, stalk or crawl. | SAA bullets are on the truck just past the tanks. Head N and if you crawl | behind those barricades no guards should notice you. Be careful of the dog | near you, though. If you're crawling he shouldn't be a problem as long as | you don't bump into him. Go through that gate just past the dog and crawl | under the pipes to reach the ladder. | | GROZNYJ GRAD SEWERS | EVA will call you. Turns out everybody knows you're gone and the sewers have | been sealed. Hey, no problem for creepy crawly Snake. Grab the Life Med, head | down the stairs, and run. Run like the dickins. This area's not a straight | shot, but isn't a maze either if you don't screw yourself up. Just run along | the main path until you reach a gate, then crawl through the left hole and | you'll pop out on the other side. Keep running. At the second gate, go | through the right hole. Now run like a nigga. | | - Cutscene: Waterlogged - | | LOCATION: ??? | | BOSS BATTLE: SPIRIT MEDIUM SOLDIER - THE SORROW | Don't worry. This isn't a "boss battle" boss battle. All you have to do is | walk towards the end of the river, avoiding all the people you have killed | along the way. Yup, the whole gang is here, from that guy you blew up to the | guy who got his throat slit open. And they seem pretty pissed by the sound of | that groaning. Don't bother shooting at anyone here, there's no need. Just | keep on walkin. When you are killed (or you kill yourself from boredom) use a | revival pill at the continue screen. At the end of the river--the long, long, | very long river--you'll see his lifeless body floating there and you'll | instantly die when you touch it. If you do, you'll get my favorite camo-- | Spirit (recover stamina when choking guards and, even better, completely | silent movement) when you get your stuff back. Likewise, use the revival | pill. It is honestly worth all that walking (or trudging, actually). But if | you already have it, just drown in the river before using the revival pill to | save yourself from all that walking. I don't know what's worse, this or that | damned ladder. | | - Cutscene: The Sad Truth - | | TIKHOGORNYJ | Zero's unfallibly timed radio call will fill you in on all the tidbits you | missed about Sorrow. When that's finished you'll touch base with EVA before | setting out. Cross the river to get to the E bank and walk on the log up | ahead. There's a huge variety of food here if you need a quick bite. Go | behind the waterfall from the ledge. | | TIKHOGORNYJ: BEHIND WATERFALL | | - Cutscene: Need a Towel? - | | - Save Prompt 04 - | | - Cutscene: Russian BBQ / Gameplan - | | Hey, check out the new eye patch. Ever see that movie Captain Ron? Grab the | Kabuki face paint at the bottom of the pond outside the waterfall, its only | purpose being to brighten your day! You can also find your Tsuchinoko in the | area if you had one alive in your inventory at the time of capture (it'll be | in the open this time, just shoot it w/ Mk22). Go N while picking up Mk22 and | M19 suppressors and bullets, various medical supplies, and the Cardboard Box | B. | | GROZNYJ GRAD NORTHWEST | | - Cutscene: Bad Luck - | | Did you miss your guns? I bet you did. They look a little rusty. Why not dust | em off and put em to good use? Getting by here should be no problem with your | once long departed firearms. Go through the SE door. | | GROZNYJ GRAD NORTHEAST | You're in the middle of boot camp. The people here aren't focused so much on | finding you, rather they're focused on their hated instructor. As much as you | hate sneaking, it's easier to go by them than take them all on. You will have | to put out the guards that aren't running around and actually patrolling, | though. Mk22 ammo and grenades are in the truck to the N. Walk through that | oh so familiar red door we all know and love. | | GROZNYJ GRAD WEAPONS LAB: EAST WING | Do I really have to explain what to do here? I mean by now you realize what | to put on when you're in here. Well, sure as hell not the Raikov suit; that's | been exposed. Revisit the locker room to find 2 great uniforms, one in the | 3rd row, 5th locker (sneaking), and one in the last row, 2nd locker |(maintenance). That XM16 SP is still in the same spot, but at this point in | time you really don't have a use for it. Put on the maintenance suit and go | through the door EVA showed you. In case you don't watch cutscenes, you're | automatically pointed towards the door when you walk in. | | GROZNYJ GRAD WEAPONS LAB: MAIN WING | Pull out that maintenance suit and that C3 of yours and plant it on the 4 | liquid fuel tanks (if you can't put some C3 down, it's not a liquid fuel | tank). The whole scientist deal applies here too: don't let any workers see | your face. EVA will give a ring after 2 C3 pieces have been put down. | Afterwards, finish off the other two. When you're done, you're done. | Badabing. Forgetaboudit. | | - Cutscene: Butterfly Kiss - | | Call from the Major. You've now reached the final PONR. From here, it's only | one-way until the end. Oh, and get ready for a good clean fight (clean, ha!). | | - Cutscene: Caught Red-handed - | | - Save Prompt 05 - | | - Cutscene: Philosophers' Legacy - | | BOSS BATTLE: COLONEL VOLGIN | o Vulnerable when: | - His frontal shield is overpowered | - His back is turned (running, recharging) | o Ammo will be thrown down occasionally from Ocelot | o Stamina kill: Cold War uniform | | I'm not gonna lie to you, this is a beast of a battle. You have 5 minutes to | kill this shmuck. He's pretty much invincible when he has his shields up. | Keep shooting until they fall or you can grenade him. He can only block shots | from the front. Shooting him from behind, although the opportunity rare, | always delivers damage. Whenever he hits you with a lightning bolt, you'll | lose all the bullets in the clip. Either unequip your weapon if you think | you're gonna be struck or just don't let it hit you. Pull out an automatic | weapon regardless of whether you're going to kill him or not and keep | unloading on him, stopping only when he's about to hit you with lightning. | You'll break his shield eventually. Keep firing if you're putting him 8 feet | under or quickly change to the Mk22 if you're a lover and not a fighter. Save | your grenades for later. Vogin'll lose energy with every attack he makes and | every hit he takes, so he'll have to recharge even if you're not hitting him | although doing so speeds up the process. The room starts out blue when his | energy has peaked and the color fades as he loses power. Be ready when the | hue has disappeared and shoot the second he turns his back to recharge. When | the battle is halfway complete, you get a little break where Volgin asks for | help and the complex is evacuated. When the battle resumes, your opponent | will appear with a few new tricks, like the bullet wave. Lay down when this | happens, you absolutely do not want to be hit with this. He'll also fire a | bigger electric bolt, but the mechanics of the fight remain constant. Use up | all your grenades on him now (remember: stun grenades only for lowering | stamina). This is probably the toughest fight to pull off; it might take a | few tries. If you short circuited his stamina you'll get the Cold War | uniform. With this on you stick out like a sore thumb anywhere but guards | can't shoot you from the front. Its only practical use is coming up. | | GROZNYJ GRAD| | - Cutscene: Inevitable Fight - | | Well, the Shagohod's still intact and is right on your tail. EVA's driving | while you shoot in the car. Get ready for the ride of your life. All your | weapons have infinite ammo, even grenades. Besides that, if you missed the | RPG on the mountain you'll automatically have it here (it's vital to the | story). Just pick your most favoritest WMD and start blasting. I think you | are given some leeway in the accuracy department, with you moving and all. | There's no strategy here, just hit everything that moves with all you got. | However, that Cold War camo you got if you defeated Volgin non-lethally has | its chance to shine here. For a pure adrenaline rush, get out of FPV | whenever you can to witness the adrenaline pumping, motorcycle maneuvering, | giant legged tank smashing, stuff blowing up ripped out action. EXTREME! | | - Cutscene: To the Bridge / In Debt - | | GROZNYJ GRAD RUNWAY SOUTH | Same here. Just shoot everything you need to. | | GROZNYJ GRAD RUNWAY | | - Cutscene: Hello Comrade - | | Yawn. Keep shooting. What did you expect? | | - Cutscene: Watch Out Ocelot - | | Volgin'll try to run you over. Nothing you can do but lose some health. You | could slow it down with a few RPG hits to its treads, but it doesn't really | do much. | | GROZNYJ GRAD RAIL BRIDGE | | - Cutscene: One Chance - | | Here, shoot out the blinking C3 on the right with your SVD that's already | equipped and wait for the tank to come onto the bridge. On EVA's command blow | up the second explosive. | | - Cutscene: It's Over...? - | | BOSS BATTLE: SHAGOHOD | o 1st Battle: | - Riding in sidecar | - Treads can be stopped with RPG | - Shagohod vulnerable in rear | - Ammo is unlimited | o 2nd Battle: | - Walking | - Volgin can only be shot from in his back | - Shagohod attacks include duel machine guns, particle beam, missiles | - No additional ammo can be found | o Stamina kill: sorry, nada | | Holy tap dancin jeezus Batman! That thing's still alive. This battle is split | into two parts, but this is all no sweat. In the first round, shoot a tread | with an RPG and it'll lock up. Then blast the tank in its back where sparks | are coming out. Rinse and repeat until you go into part 2, where you go it | alone on foot. EVA will distract it while you blow the stuffing out of | Volgin, who ingeniously decided to pilot it from the top. As always, you | can't hit him from the front for some reason, so do the honorable thing and | pop him in the back. Once shot at, Volgin will wise up and turn his attention | to you. Spend most of your time under the tank (not under the tread), rolling | underneath when it passes over you, then turning around to plug a missile up | Volgin's butt (or the Mk22 for the non-killing Ghandi method--don't worry, it | takes off a much bigger chunk here than it did before, just aim for his | peabrain). If you're in the mood, hop into any of the mounted guns, but | readily abandon it if the tank starts barreling towards you. Just keep | hitting him in the back and don't get run over and you'll do fine. Not as | much as you'd expect from the "weapon from hell." | | - Cutscene: A Fitting End - | | GROZNYJ GRAD RAIL BRIDGE NORTH | Another easy bike chase. Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot. BTW, despite the | explosions and rag doll bodies experienced by bike and hovercraft drivers | when shot, if you tranquilized them it doesn't add to your kill count. | | LAZOREVO SOUTH | Now them hoverfolks is chasin yeh. I reckon yeh cud shoot em with that thar | boomstick a' yurs. | | LAZOREVO NORTH | More chasing, more shooting. When will the killing stop? Who knows? Who | cares? | | ZAOZYORJE WEST (a.k.a. Zaozyorje South) | | - Cutscene: Only a Flesh Wound - | | Heal up EVA and continue. She'll lose stamina mad fast, so keep stuffing her | face frequently through the Survival Viewer (she has to be near you). She'll | move to your position with Triangle if she's in sight. When you get about 1/2 | way through the forest,... | | - Cutscene: On the Trail - | | Guards will be closing in from behind. Lay down in the grass and EVA'll do | the same. Shoot everything coming towards you (haven't you learned by now?). | Once every guard in sight has been removed, you should be able to run to the | exit before the next batch arrives, keeping EVA with you, if you don't stop | moving. Gather any and all good food you see along the way, which will be | mostly snakes and fruits, but do it quickly. At the end you'll have to lift | EVA up before pulling yourself up--in other words you can't exit the area | without her bitch ass. | | ZAOZYORJE EAST (a.k.a. Zaozyorje North) | Hide in the first patch of grass you see. The enemies will notice you easily | and run at anything they see move. All the douchebags in this area can be hit | from the entrance. They'll be walking around and are very careful as to your | hiding spot. They won't miss you if they come anywhere near you. Some golova | fruits here should be enough to fatten up EVA. After the unit in this area | has been wiped up, continue on until you reach a drop. DO NOT go down there, | instead, using a sniper and thermals if you need them, snipe all the guards | in hiding. When you think you're done, instead of jumping down, fire off a | few unsuppressed bullets to rile any survivors up. Squeeze as much ammo out | of the dropped sentries as you can before continuing to the final boss | battle. Remember not to leave EVA behind. If you left EVA behind before | dropping down, well, I can't help you there. | | ROKOVOJ BEREG | | - Cutscene: Beautiful End / Meaningless Competition / Empty - | | BOSS BATTLE: THE BOSS | o Ammo: none | o Stamina kill: Snake uniform | Good news! This is the only time in the entire game you get to use your dusty | old Snow camo. Wait, there's more! You even get to fight this battle seeing | as much cleavage as EVA shows off. At the start, she'll charge. You can | either dive out of the way or counter with CQC. To do this, wait until she | bumps into you (don't attack too early) and do either a KO throw or chokehold | maneuver (the button combination is the same but the results ain't). You'll | disable her assault and leave you ample time to shoot her, hit her, whatever. | It only works one-way; you can never go up to HER and use CQC. Only she can | come to you. Disappear in the flowers after you deliver your attack, cause | she'll start shooting at you. Laying down, peek with L2 and R2 and follow her | with your gun sights. If you lose her, try the thermals (they don't help | much) or the Motion Tracker, but waiting for the trail of flower petals she | kicks up when she runs should suffice. When she's stopped moving, fire off a | clean suppressed headshot. She'll start to blast away with her Patriot | regardless of whether she actually knows where you are. If the firing stops | after a short time, you're golden. If not, find a new spot. This battle is | all hide and seek but it has a time limit, which Boss will notify you of the | time you have left every now and then. Don't worry about the time, though, | since there is more than enough time for you to make well aimed shots if | you're going at a steady pace. The only thing you have to worry about is if | her intuition leads her immediately to you. This rarely does happen, but then | again, it's possible. When you're hungry, snack on the three delicious white | snakes found only in this area (Solid, Liquid, and Solidus... where have I | heard that before...), all 3 hanging out by different logs. If you defeat | Boss non-lethally you'll start a new game with the Snake uniform in your | pack. No, it doesn't look like her shiny jump suit, and yes, all it does is | give you another reason to play dress-up with Snake. | | - Cutscene: Eternal Parting - | | After the game's only non-skippable cutscene, you can zoom in with Triangle | while you pull the trigger manually on your beloved Boss. By now you should | have a bigger tear on your cheek than the Indian on that old TV commercial. | Or not; it's only a video game. Get ready for some trippy cutscenes. | | - Cutscene: Field of Blood / Prolonged Fight - | | | When the game resumes play, select the SAA on the right and you'll get to | start your next game with one. | | WIG INTERIOR | | - Cutscene: Duel! - | | Depending on which gun you select, you can initiate two different cutscenes. | Choosing the left one will let you win the duel but won't give you an SAA on | your next game. Winning the duel doesn't mean you kill him, either--it was a | blank anyhow. | | - Cutscene: Close Call / Miracle - | | Oh, it's you, Zero... What do you want now? | | - Save Prompt 06 - | | - Cutscene: Love Machine / True Patriot / Big Boss / The Unsung Hero - | | - Closing Credits: "Way to Fall" - | | - Phonecall from Ocelot to Chief Director - | | ~ Fin. | | + Bet none of you figured out ADAM was Ocelot. He was working for the CIA the | whole time, but you would've known that already if you were paying | attention. There're also more discreet inferences in the story I'll leave to | you to piece together, such as the identity of the Boss' child and the true | destination of the Legacy. After fully enjoying the whole experience, see | how you did. _________________ | 006.Post Game | |¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ | //POST GAME STATUS | | Some statistics are kept track of during the game.
