Hints, Secrets, Glitches & Easter Eggs

 

Don't Shoot!

If the back-up squad has you cornered and you need a way out. Just grab one around the neck and now you have a hostage. They will only shoot at you if they have a clear shot so keep him in front of you.

Dog Tags Anyone?

Sneak up behind enemy soldier and press and hold square and snake/Raiden should say "freeze". Once this happens press and hold L1 to walk while still have gun pointed. Then go to front of enemy soldier and go into first-person mode with R1 and hold it and at the enmy soldiers head and he should say something stay there and he should start shaking. THEN YOU WILL HEAR A RING AND something hit the ground. Release the square button shoot the man and pick up his dog tag.

Raising The Grip Bar

To raise your grip bar level and do pull-ups (L2+R2 while hanging)to hang lean against the railing and press the action button (triangle) I recommend you go to the bottom of Strut A right above the water pool to do this so if you fall you'll land in the pool instead of plummeting to your doom, preferably at the beginning of the game when you are playing as Raiden before you head up the elevator for the first time:
Lv. 1 to Lv. 2-Total of 100 pull-ups
Lv. 2 to Lv. 3-Total of 200 pull-ups
Lv. 3 to Lv. 4-Total of 300+ pull-ups (its more than 300 because I lost count sometime after 300)
Basically it raises 1 level every 100 pull-ups
And be sure to keep count and you have the time to do this because its going to take a while. So good luck.

Fighting Fatman Fortune And Vamp

Okay so here are the easiest ways to beat them:

Fatman: Have the sensor a bomb detector out so when he plants bombs you can get rid of at least one or two and plant claymores all around the place so he might run over them then whip out your SOCOM and shoot his head while he's getting up thats about it for him
Fortune: Fortune if the easiest boss in the game, just avoid her attacks and other objects. Don't bother wasting any ammo because nothing can hit her
Vamp: Use The RGB6 Grenade Launcher, the M4 Assult rifle and your SOCOM. Shoot grenades at him while he's swimming and walking on the ground and the M4 whenever especially helpfull when he's above you on the bars. The SOCOM is just an extra weapon, but the RGB6 and the M4 are the way to go.

Emma's Fear Of Bugs And Location Of The M9

Okay as you'll find out, Emma is afraid of bugs. Once you get back to the elevator with her there's a whole mess of roaches blocking the way to get into it. If you grab her hand and walk her over to them she'll say something along the lines of "bugs, bugs, I hate bugs", which makes it difficult do deal with them roaches. SO you can go about this situation one of two ways. The first way is to keep Emma back and use your Coolent Spray (the spray you used to freeze Fatman's bombs)to get the roaches out of the way, BUT, there's a catch; the roaches will come back in time. So it takes pretty long because of that and if Emma gets too close to the bugs she goes all the way back near the water and you'll have to start all over. That one annoys me SO the second, quicker and somewhat funny way is to shoot her with your M9 Tranquilizer Gun and drag her to the elevator. If you do that she'll start to talk while she's asleep and say's some random things. If you don't have the M9 you can find it in these places on these difficulties:
Very Easy:On the stack of white boxes to the right of the door at the bottom of Strut A (where you start)
Easy:In the vents at the bottom of Strut A (you can see one opening to the right of the small set of stairs by the water)
Normal:I believe it is in Strut B in the room where you first see Vamp on the upper floor, on the pathway in the front (right next to the set of stairs). If its not there then its in Strut F, top floor, in the only room that you don't need a cardkey to open it.
Hard:Its in Strut F, top floor, in the only room that you don't need a cardkey to open it. Extreme:I'm not sure where it is on extreme because I haven't played it on that difficulty yet, but I'm just assuming its somewhere in Strut F, but like I said, I'm not sure where it is on that difficulty.
So yeah have fun and good luck with finding the M9 ESPECIALLY on extreme!

The Four Shots Of Killing Emma

When you get to start l oil fence take out your psg1 and shoot her anywhere but the head you can shoot her with any other gun except tranqs. and explosives. 1st the first time you shoot her she says hey are you trying to kill me? 2nd the second time you shoot her she says what is wrong with you, you suck you know that. 3rd the third time you shoot her she says i am sick of this! 4th the fourth time you shoot her she dies.

Emma & The Elevator

Elevator scene with Emma: instead of wasting time using the Coolant to get rid of the bugs, just use a stun grenade to knock her out and drag Emma over to the elevator.

Perverted Snake

When you meet up with Snake in Arsenal Gear place a "book" down somewhere close by him. He will say "Damn kid!", look both ways, then stare down at the magazine.

Fatman's Final Bomb

When Fatman activates his final bomb the only hint he will give you is that it's "very close by." After he dies, drag him away from where he is and you will see a C4 bomb attached to a large case of SEMTEX where he was sitting. Spray the bomb with coolant to deactivate it.

Tanker Chapter: Secret Route To Metal Gear RAY Hold

When the Commandant begins his speech, after going down the ladder, head to the left of the room. Under the ladder on the left side is a small hatch that can be opened. It leads to an air duct which will take you to the other end of the room. There is another hatch in Hold 2. Take the one on the right. A guard will drop a clip in front of you. This duct leads to an area directly underneath Metal Gear RAY. Crawl through the air duct on the right to get to a ladder, which takes you directly in front of the "MARINES" insignia on the side. Slide down the pole in front of you to get to the ground floor.

Tanker Chapter: Second Railing Shortcut

When in the first hold on the Tanker section (with Solid Snake), go down the first ladder and jump over the second railing. Take a ration if you are not at full health because your grip gauge will drop faster. Then, shimmy to the left by either pressing Left or L2. Shimmy to the section of the railing closest to the projection screen. When the guard that is up there turns around, hop over the railing and tranquilize him before he spins. Continue through the doors until you reach the third hold, where there is a guard dozing. Tranquilize him, then proceed to take pictures of Metal Gear RAY from the upper railing. You can get everything except the center forward shot from the railing. To get down there will be a pole somewhere along the walkway that Snake can slide down. After sliding down, there is a guard (depending on the difficulty level), who is dozing. Tranquilize him, take the center picture, then transmit the photos to Otacon.

Tanker Chapter: Pass Hold 1 And 2

When you arrive at the Hold 1 (where where the commandant is lecturing all the soldiers), you will see a ladder. Go down the ladder. You are now on the second floor/second stage. Hang the nearest ledge (hold L2 + R2) from the ladder, then move to the left. Note: This trick will work only if your grip is strong.

Tanker Chapter: More In-depth Information On Metal Gear RAY

Get to the Holding Decks where the Commandant makes his speech. Do not worry about the time limit. Get to the Commandant, take the pictures you need, and hide safely in a corner. If needed, tranquilize the sleeping guard to the left of Metal Gear (to Snake's right when you face it). Hide in the corner over there. In this corner, if you did not take the sub-flooring passageway, you can get a great shot of the "Marines" logo on Metal Gear (though you do not need it). Wait out the time limit, or if you have the bandanna or the stealth camo, have some fun with the Marines, but pay attention to the Commandant. By allowing time to run out, the Commandant will start his speech again. However this time he will make more references to Shadow Moses and reveal even more on the technical aspects of Metal Gear Ray, with information he did not include in his first speech.

Tanker Chapter: Loose Pipe

There is a place where a pipe can fall over if you are against the wall. After you get past the lasers in the engine room, go through the door. You can keep running until you see a solider approaching. Run towards him and go into the opening where the hatch is located. Stand up against the wall and peek around the corner to where the solider is. If you stand there long enough, a pipe will fall at your location and attract the guard, giving you the chance to shoot him.

Tanker Chapter: Hold 2 Screens

When you enter Hold 2, shoot all the guards in line with your M9 (including the one wearing the helmet). Press Triangle near the projectors repeatedly, and a clip of a woman should appear at first (the poster girl), then the second should follow. Note: You will be caught.

Tanker Chapter: Cables

There are many cables in the tanker that you can hang from. One is in the engine room just outside the room with the Vulcan Raven figure. Hang over the small railing and move across to get to the other side. The other cables are in Hold 1 on the second level, one from right to left, the other across the left side.

Tanker Chapter: Toy Pellets

When you see the toy in front of the flashlight, shoot it. It will start to shoot small pellets all over the floor. When you get hallway just before the engine room there is a little toy with a gun. Shoot the toy with your M9 and it will become activated and start firing.

Tanker Chapter: Break The Door

Go to the left side of the dining hall on deck C. Exit the hall and you will be in the room with the girl posters. If you try to go back into the dining hall, Snake will rip off the door wheel. He will then place it back on the door. After that, the door will be locked.

Tanker Chapter: Hidden Poster

When you enter the engine room, go down to the bottom catwalk. When you reach the bottom of the stairs, run up and you will see a white disposal gate, similar to the ones on the deck. There will be a small square black hole. Hang from the horizontal rail above the hole. When you are hanging, hold R1 and the look to your left. You will see a poster like the one that the ''perverted'' guard is looking at. Shoot it and you will now be in alert mode.

Tanker Chapter: Exploding Poster Girl

There is a picture of a "poster girl" in the engine room, to the south (which is why the guard uses his binoculars to a wall). If you shoot her, the picture will explode, causing you to enter alert mode.

Tanker Chapter: Hideo Kojima Picture

When in the hold of the ship, in the second room where Marines are (the room with two screens), take a picture of the screen on the right while it is on. A "ghost outline" of Hideo Kojima will appear on the screen. Save this photo and Otocan will react strongly when he views it.

Tank Chapter: Picture Reactions

If you take a picture of Olga after the fight (when she is lying on the floor), Snake will make a kissing sound. After taking a picture of a poster girl Snake will say "good" or "great". He will also say "good" when you take a picture of the Vulcan Raven Toy. When in the holds with Metal Gear Ray. take a picture of the Commandant during the speech and Snake will say "hmmm".

Tanker Chapter: Take A Picture Of Ocelot

Go in the ventilation shafts, all the way to the sliding pole where you will see Ocelot standing. Be careful not to look away at first or he will disappear. After getting to the area where you slide down the pole, equip your Digital Camera. Zoom in on Ocelot just to get a good picture. Then go to the computer to submit the photo. Otacon will make a funny movement.

Tanker Chapter: View Sergei's Troops

When in the first or second hold, watch the big screen television. If you look closely, you can see Sergei's troops take their positions on the catwalks in the third hold.

Tanker Chapter: Sending Guards Over Edges

In the engine room's starboard entrance (the one used when you first go into the engine room), go down the hall. Go through the door on the left that leads into the engine room. There should be a guard with his back toward you, just standing there. Go behind him and do the Punch(2), Kick combo. He should fall off the edge and land on top of another guard.

Tanker Chapter: Scared Guard

When you enter Deck 2, after you pass the engine room port, go to the third opening on the right. Press R2(2) and a pipe will fall and the guard will be scared. Another guard will appear and you will not get caught.

Tanker Chapter: Double Knockout

Under any difficulty setting, enter the engine room from the starboard side with the Vulcan Raven toy. Enter the door to the guarded area slowly. There will be a guard here. Do the punch, punch, kick combo. If done correctly, the guard will fall down, die, and knock out the unsuspecting guard below.

Tanker Chapter: Good Hiding Location

You are often spotted in the room where you see the man's shadow. He is not the problem, but if you are spotted there is no place to hide. Go south and stay ahead of your enemies. There is a tiny location with a locker in the southern-most part of the room. It is a great hiding area. If you stay there, the enemies will keep moving as if you are still running around. You can now hide in the locker. If the enemies are too close to you, this will not work.

He will also start running away, but shreds of the box(es) will be left behind.

Plant Chapter: Getting Through Arsenal Gear

To get through the room with the RAYS, hide behind the crates until the enemies look away. Go up the stairs in the north-west part of the room and go across the closest connecting bridge. You should be in the northeast part of the room on the second floor. Knock out the enemy and enter the door behind him. Once you get in, answer some of the calls for laughs. You should get a call from Rose, and then Snake will come in the room and return your clothes. It is obvious what needs to be done after this.

Plant Chapter: Falling Platforms

Use the following trick to tell if a platform will fall or not. Shoot a platform (on a connecting bridge for example). If you hear a sound from the bullet hitting the floor, the platform is going to fall. If you equip the thermal goggles, the platforms that will fall will be colored differently. Also, if you look closely without the thermal goggles, the platforms will have a slightly different color.

Plant Chapter: Turn On Hand Dryer

When in the Strut with a bathroom, go in and press Punch near the hand dryer (white box) on the wall and it will turn on.

Plant Chapter: Get The Girl Magazine

In Shell Core 1, in the B2 computer room, the parrot will say something about the top of the locker on the left side of the room. As you can see, there is a girl magazine on top there.

Plant Chapter: False Death

Go on the CD connecting bridge. Come out of strut C and go to the first set of steps. If you are arriving from strut D, go to the second set of steps. There will be a trap door on the ground. Stand on it, and Raiden will fall and scream as if he were falling into the ocean. However, he will not die.

Tanker Chapter: Knock Out All The Marines

Go to the part of the mission with all the Marines watching the slides. Equip your M9 and you can knock them all out. If you stay to the side of each row you will not be seen. Make sure to get a good headshot to avoid alerting them. You can even hold up Marines, but they will not give up anything. Make sure you use the M9 to avoid detection and try to make the entire floor fall asleep. It helps if you have the Bandanna or Stealth Suit. Note: The game will start to run very slow after about half the Marines are asleep.

Tanker Chapter: Marines In Boxer Shorts

Reach the last Marine room very quickly. If you were fast enough, all the Marines will be in boxer shorts.

Plant Chapter: Knock Out Guard Looking At Bird

Get on the AB connecting bridge on the Plant. Shoot a bird with the M9 tranquilizer and make sure that it lands somewhere near the guard. Shoot the bird that you already shot down with the M9 again. The guard will become suspicious. Take out your SOCOM and shoot the bird that the guard was looking at. For some reason the guard will be knocked out while watching the bird die.

Plant Chapter: Getting Mines

During this chapter, Fatman lays claymore mines around Shells 1 and 2. Use the mine detector to see where they are located. After doing this, crawl over the mines to pick them up.

This duct leads to an area directly underneath Metal Gear RAY. Crawl through the air duct on the right to get to a ladder, which takes you directly in front of the "MARINES" insignia on the side. Slide down the pole in front of you to get to the ground floor.

Tanker Chapter: See Revolver Ocelot

When you are in the room with Metal Gear RAY and the Marines go into the ventiation shaft, behind Metal Gear, and you be able to see Ocelot before he takes over and destroys the ship. Note: This obviously cannot be done after submitting your photos of RAY to Otacon.

Put the blade away and punch snake untill he is knocked out. Then Drag him and drop his body. His milatary tags will appear. It will count as more than one dog tag. Its pretty cool.

Quick Skip Codec Calls

Press X button to stop the talking, then hold Square until the Codec conversation is done. This is useful when advancing past long, boring intermissions, or intermissions that you have already viewed.

The Domino Effect

When playing in the tanker level, press square on a guard and trip him so he hits the next guard, which makes a very funny domino effect.

Tired Of Missing Tags In Tanker?

Have you ever had to shot a guy in the Tanker before you got his dog tags. Never want to wait so you skip him, you could easily get the tags in a shorter time if you happen to shot him. drag him to a stair case go up the stairs a bitt then drop him. pull gun out and start punching him till he wakes up it is shorter. no stairs around go near a wall and put him up against the wall and start punching hil make sure you can reach and hit him first. Then when he wakes up get in front or behind or any were in first person view and piont the gun at him. BINGO Dog Tags.

Fighting Solidus Snake

When you are fighting Solidus Snake in the very end (with the High-Frequency Blade), he will dash back and forth leaving large flames in his wake. You will see him crouch just before he dashes, this is the signal to do a flip to not get hurt. Also, at the end of his dash, he will do a large punch. As he is doing this, he takes a good amount of time to stabd back up, so if you get out of the way soon enough, you can attack him by running to his side or back.Once you get him to half health, he will relinquish his tentacles, and will be much faster. Once he gets rid of his tentacles, he will dash back and forth 3 times. On the third, he will come straight at you and do a large punch and/or a combo of blade attacks. Right as he sarts coming at you, you must do a flip to get out of the way. If you jump out of the way at the right time, he will do a combo of blade attacks, while he is doing these, run around to hid back and attack with your sword. Keep doing this and he will surely die.

Fight Less Metal Gears

Play the game on normal, and when you fight the 25 metal gears, you will only have to fight 5 of them because they will say it's no use.

Sleeping Snake

Right agter you meet up with snake for the first time (after seeing vamp for the first time) after you stop taliking with snake he will fall asleep. Call him on the codec and he will be asleep and snoring and raiden will say, "is he sleeping?, or "wish i were that relaxed."

Get Shaver

Have you ever wondered how to get in the fenced area in the very beginning of the plant chapter? I'm gonna tell you how. First get out of the water. Now hang on the ledge to the left of the ladder. Then move to the left and you can move right past the fence. Finnaly get off the ledge and get the box. It is the Shaver.

Funny Message

When the guard is peeing on raiden call the colonel. The colonel and rose will make fun of raiden.

Easy Plant Tags

The easiest way to get dog tags on the plant chapter is to get the coolant, after that shoot gaurds with the M9,then sray them with the coolant,make sure you're in front of him,then point the gun at his head after he wakes up & presto dogtags everywhere.

Bathroom Guard Is Back!

The guard in the Shell 1 B1 Conference Hall can be heard while listening in on Ocelot and Solidus. If you are listening with the Directional Microphone, steer it to the left. The guard in there is taking a dump and talking to himself about other memories. He can also be heard when covering Emma from guards and gun cyphers on the oil fence with the PSG1. When Emma is behind the second column she is being confronted by the Bathroom Guard. Codec her is you want but I recommend on not talking to her. It is really funny.

Defeating Vamp

When you are looking for Emma, you have to fight Vamp, "You can't kill him ether." To defeat him easily use your Stingers and Grenades. When Vamp is in the pool, Through 2 or 3 grenades in. When he is out of the water lock on your stinger and shoot him. He should die, "Pass out," very quickly.

Get M9 Faster In Plant Chapter

When you start the plant chapter, when you come out of the water, you will see an open vent on the floor just a little bit to your right. Crawl into the vent and turn right, and then take your first left. You'll see the M9 box in front of you. Note: will not work in normal, hard or extreme. In those levels you'll find it later.(don't ask me where). After you get it go out the way you came in. You will see a rack to ur left and there will be M9 ammo under it.

Easy Vent

On the part of the plant where you have to guide the nikatia missile through the vent, try using the vent in the room with the two cams in, its alot more easyier and simple!

Cool Wigs

To earn those wigs, you have to be on the 'plant' and have to get so many dog tags. Brown Wig:Get 80-90 dogs, this gives you infinite ammo!!! . Blue wig:Get 170-180 dog tags, this gives you infinite air underwater!!!

Emma's Parakeet

Shoot the bird cage in the computer room in the B2 of the Shell 1 core. The parakeet will say "It's him, someone get over here," or "Enemy sighted, send backup." You will have to shoot the cage about 5-8 times for the bird to say something. This is pretty much a waste of ammo unless you have the brown wig.

Easy Fortune Escape

Alright, all Metal Gear fanatics know that fortune can not be killed when she's wearing that electromagnetic belt thingy, so here's an easy way to escape the wrath of her electricity gun. All you need to do is run left to right throughout the whole battle, never try to shoot her. Also if a beam or box falls in your path dont try going over it or past it, just avoid it because it will probably put you on fire.

Pee On Raiden

Once you're on Strut L, There will be Gurlukovich soldiers looking throught the windows. Crawl to avoid any rough stuff. There will also be several gun-equipped Cyphers near the corner. Take them out with your SOCOM. Once you've done this, go and follow the walk way and there will be a scene of a soldier who has to go pee. Since there's no bathroom in sight, he'll go over the railing and Raiden can go directly under the pee and get "wet". NOTE: This will not happen if you're in Alert, Evasion, or Caution mode.

Suicidal Guards

While on the heliport in Strut E go behind the guard and choke him (with no weapons drawn push square) but don't kill him.Take him near the edge trying not to fall. Put him so that if he gets up he'll face the water. Keep picking him up and dropping him until his legs hang off. When he gets up he'll fall off the the edge.

See Snake In The Box

After stillman tells you to go and find the bombs, go the oposite way and you will see snake crossing the rail hidden in the box.

Envious Guard

When you get to the part where you are leaving the torture room inside arsenal gear, we have all noticed that when you press up against the torture machine, there is a conveniently placed soda can that blocks out raidens "male reproductive organs"-to avoid any obscene language. Well, if you are playing on normal or any higher difficulty, leave the room and alert one of the guards. Then do the only thing you can do, run. Run back to the torture room and press back up against the machine. Let the guards clear the room and when they leave, one of them will look down towards raiden and say "I wish i had that!"

Girly Slide Show

Ok, we all know about the girly posters in the tanker chapter right? If not, then your aren't heterosexual. Anyway, take a picture of like two of them and then when you get to the holds in the room where there is a projector, start pressing the action button a whole bunch of times right by the projector so that snake presses the button alot. Eventually, there will be a video of a tasty looking chinese girl on the screen. Keep pressing it and there will be another girl video on the other screen. You will get caught because when the marines can't figure out which screen they wanna stare at, snake goes off and puts the commandant back on and they turn around and spot you.

What Emma Really Thinks

If you point the directional microphone at Emma as she is walking across the bridge when you have to cover her with your sniper rifle, she is like "oh gee i'm scared, it's too shaky' what if i fall?" Well point it at her when she is behind the first column shaped building and you can hear her talking about raiden. Call her afterwards to give her a piece of your mind. Point the Directional microphone at her when she is behind the second building and the same guard who has stomach problems in the hostage room will pull his gun on her and they talk for a second- his name is johnny- and then his stomach problems come back on him. ~In the hostage room when you listen to solidus and ocelot talking, point your microphone to the left at the bathroom and you can hear the guard in there dropping a bomb and he isn't having a good time~

Hidden Books

There are five books hidden above a locker on the west side of the Shell 1 Core's B2 level. Punch the locker until the door falls off, and the books will fall from atop the locker.

Olga's Dog Tag

On the tanker after you beat Olga drag her around and drop her, you get a dog tag that says Olga Gurlukavich

Red Alert!

When you are on a connecting bridge that has a guard patroling it, or if he's on top of a strut like the ones on the E-F connecting bridge, throw a chaff grenade, grenade, or a magazine off the bridge, into the water, then the guards will call backup.

Easy Kill Ray

Shooting the metal gear ray in the leg will make it crouch and open its mouth. Quickly shoot his face and the results are much better. (health wise)

Hold Hatches

Are you always getting sighted by the Marines when you're in the Holds? Well, there's a way to get to Hold No. 3 without being seen. There are hidden Hatches in Holds 1 and 2. These Hatches will get you to Hold No. 3 in no time! To open the Hatches, you must stand up and press the triangle button. The list below tells you where the Hatches are located and where you can find them. HOLD LOCATION 1 Near the ladder on the west side 2 Near the ladder on the east side

Slower Guards

To get slower guards pull out your m-9 and shoot the guard in his head when he falls asleep pull out your usp or socum and shoot him in the upper leg, so when he gets up he will be limping.

Fun With Posters

In the locker room on the Tanker part open a locker and there is a poster inside. Hit one with or with out you gun and something cool will happen!

Thermal Goggles

Once you beat Olga Gurloukavich, go to the south- west corner and head up the stairs. There you'll find a crew's look-out tower. Go up the tower to the 3rd section and you'll find a spinning box. In this box is a pair of 'THERMAL GOGGLES.' These goggles are night-vision goggles. If you go to FIRST PERSON VIEW and there's a soldier near-by, you can tell if he has a 'DOG-TAG' or not.

Codec Fun

If you wanna fool around for a second, press the SELECT button and you'll view the codec. Go to frequency 141.12 and press the UP button on the directional pad. This will contact Otacon. To fool around, press R2 while Otacon's talking to make Snake talk without moving his lips! Snake will say stuff like "OH MAN!" and "NO WAY!" Another thing you can do is move the analog sticks. The left analog stick will move Otacon's face. If you press the left analog stick, Otacon's face will zoom in! If you move the right analog stick, the same things will happen except it will happen to Snake.

Train Emma's Parakeet

Aim the directional microphone at Emma's parakeet and press triangle to say "You must be Ames!" Do this enough times and the bird will repeat "You must be Ames!" ;)

Happy Birthday

If you put in the present date as your birthday in the Tanker section, you'll get a surprise.

Da Monster

On the Tanker chapter, beat Olga Gurlukovich and shoot her body a few times with the M9. Otacon will contact you and say "What are you, some kind of monster?"

AK Suppressor

Afte defeating the Harrier, you will find this item on the other side of the bridge. Remember to use the coolant to extinguish the fires.

Snake's Dog Tag

After Snake gives you the High Frequency Blade and Equipment, knock him out and shake him to get his Dog Tag.

Mei Ling

Repeatedly save until you have listened to everything that Otacon has to say. Now, Mai Ling will appear.

The Box

Call Snake while in the box to listen to some weird message.

Mysterious Walking Box

After meeting Stillman, go north instead of south to diffuse bombs. You can see somebody crawling in a box across the bridge.

Get Dumped

If you kill enough birds, or fight the hostages, Rose will dump you.

Bathroom Troubles

In the plant chapter, during the hosage situation, where you're listening in on Solidus Snake's and Ocelot's conversaton, turn the Directional mic. To the room to the left and you'l start to hear some guy complaining and doing his "business".

Grip Level

In the Plant Episode (Raiden) you'll notice when you do Hanging Mode your Grip Gauge will say Grip Lvl. 1 (Grip Level 1). It is possible to make it go up. When in Hanging Mode press L2 and R2 at the same time to do a pull up. After you do 100 Campbell will call you to tell you your grip went up, do 100 more and Campbell will inform you that your grip is up again. Your Grip Gauge should say Grip Lvl. 3, and you can hang on for a long time. Do this at the beginning of the Plant to have it the rest of the game. I don't know if this works for Snake so try and see!!!

Main Menu Fun

At the main menu screen you can press the L2 Button and a flash and gunshot will happen. You can also move around the Right Analog Stick and the background will move and change color, just like in Metal Gear Solid 1!!!

Hidden Locker

Once you're on the tanker on DECK-B in the CREW QUARTERS, you'll see a shadow coming from a corner. That's a russain soilder. Take him out with your M9. Now, walk all around the deck until you see a wall that goes in. On the left of the wall is a hidden locker. Press the 'TRIANGLE' button to open the locker. In there will be ammo for the USP Handgun. If you don't have this gun, you'll get once you fight Olga Gurlokuavitch. The cornel's daughter. This fight will come later. Now you have another place to hide yourself, unconscious enemies, or dead enemies.

Cut Off A Guard's Radio

This is an important task to do espically when you are trying to get there dog tags. If the guard turns around you can actually shoot there radio and it will "fail". You know it has failed when it sparks. Sometimes he notices and sometimes he doesn't, so watch out and try not to stand in the open when you do this. Once his radio has "failed" or been disabled, you don't have to worry about "attack teams".

Disconnecting A Soilder's Transmission

If an enemie sees you, of course he'll try to kill you and he'll also call for backup. To stop the soilder from calling for backup, equip the 'CHAFF GRENADE' and use FIRST PERSON VIEW to aim right at the soilder's radio. A direct hit will cut off the transmission. Now you don't have to worry about any backup team. But you do have to worry about the enemie that was going to call for backup. Knock him out and you'll be all set.

Distracting A Soilder

If you see an item that's labled 'BOOK' or an item that's labled 'MAGAZINE' you can pick these items up and drop them anywhere you want. If a soilder comes across the 'BOOK' or 'MAGAZINE', he'll pick it up and read it. Now, you have a chance of shooting the enemie. NOTE- If you go right in front of the distraced soilder, he'll put the 'BOOK' or 'MAGAZINE' down and start to shoot you and call for backup. Stay back while aiming and shooting!

Bug Splatter

There will be several times in the game when you will be confronted by bugs. Take out a stinger or a grenade launcher and fire it into the mass of bugs in first person view, the bugs will splatter all over the camera.

Getting Past The Fire

After you rescue Emma and you are taking her to strut L, you will encounter a fire blocking your way. Use the coolant you got from Stillman. It will put the fire out.

Intruder Warning

On the tanker level in the third hold where Metal Gear RAY is held, listen carefully to the Marines speech. If you hang around to long he will test the marines by saying there is an intruder to the right, left, back and front. If you are not careful the alerted marines will catch you. Also watch out for when he lets them stretch out and relax because they can spot you if you don't hide.

Stealth Camouflage

Successfully complete the whole game and then go back to the tanker mission. There, collect about 60 dog tags (You'll have to go through Very Easy, Easy & Normal difficulties) and you will be rewarded for your efforts the stealth camouflage to use on your next mission.

Eye Check

When you are on the ship and you have to get your eye examined to get through the door. Get another soldier and get him in a choke hold (do not kill him), bring him over to the place to check your eyes and it will let you in.

Wanna Get Yelled At?

After beating Olga, and retrieving her gun. Take out your tranq. gun and give her a shot. Upon doing so Octacon will be sure to give you a piece of his mind.

Get Bandana

Collect all the dog tags on any difficulty on the tanker mission. Then play the tanker mission again on a different difficulty and collect at least one dog tag. When you beat the misiion, you will have the bandana which gives you unlimited ammo when equipped.

Lazy Marines

When you are going through the tanker, you get to the part where the commander is giving his speech. If you make it to the 3rd hold in under a minute, the marines were to lazy to put their pants on! They all have blue and white stripped boxers on.

When Going To Shell 1 To Save The Presendant

There are about six bombs that you have to take out. The 1st two bombs are located at the far end ond the ramp on the walls take out both with the Sniper Rifle. Then use the SUCOM to take out the bombs that are in plane view. Then move Raiden to the left and look through 1st person view and you will see and bomb on the floor take it out. Once you do that you have 2 more turn Raiden around and look up over his head take the bomb out.The last bomb is hard because you have to use the Sniper Rifle to take it out, onces you have selected the Rifle you have to follow the Marine Spy cam flying around the roof top. take out the box thats on top of the green light and your done. Do not shot the green light r you will have to start over again.

Defeating Fatman

After you freeze the bombs that he place around the stage take your shot after Fatman falls to the ground run up to him and use the 1st person view and take a clear shot to the head. After he tells you that there is one more bomb to find use the sencer that the Cop gave you to find the bombs and grag Fatman off the bomb and freeze it. Remember you must use the bomb sencer to locate all the bombs through out the stage ok.

Fighting Your First Bad Guy

After finding out were the tanker is going, go outside and you will be faced with a bad guy. First thing you do is take out the spot light. Secound take out the strings that's holding down the cover. Last, go for the target... You can use the walls to bounce the bullets of the wall to hit her after you take your first shoot run to the other end of the ship, the reason for this is that she will think you are still were you just taken your shot. Play mind games with her, but the best way to take her out is to make 3 clear shots to the head. Remember take out the light and the cover ok.

Hear Thoughts Of Codac Talks

Get Rid Of Dead Soldier Bodies

When you find a soldier shoot him and kill him. Once you have done that take his body to the side of the ship and you will see a white line on the ground. Bring the body over to it. If you get close enough to it Snake will automatically throw the body overboard.

Some Funny Stuff

This isn't really a hint. It's just something to do to amuse yourself. 1) Find a staircase, make Snake RUN down or up the staircase. Press the X button to make him roll. When he rolls on the staircase he falls flat on his face, it looks funny. 2) Don't know what to do with those cigarettes? Let Snake smoke them for the whole mission. It drains his health and as an added bonus it looks funny.

Various Things

1. In the locker area look for one of the lockers with the asian woman poster. Stand up against the poster and knock on her "private" area to alert the guards. 2. Also with the posters, alert the guards somewhere leaving the locker with the poster open. Hide and when they see the poster its pretty funny. 3. Go in a locker and crouch down. Call Otacon to talk about the old days. =) 4. Yet again with the posters! ...Look at the posters in the eyes or breasts for a second or two and call Otacon....Lets just say thats snake obviously lonley at times!!!

Keep holding the R buttons and repetedly press L2 to do multiple pull ups, DO NO PRESS L2 FAST!, only for about a second. Now do 100 pull ups and you will get a call from Otacomn saying your grip strength is up.

Stuff About Guards
