Boss help

When fighting Psycho Mantis plug your controller in port 2 and he will not read your mind, also when he controls Maryl do not punch her, instead use a stun gernade and she will fall,also when he sends out the furniture duck down and when he he throws the pots go up against the wall.

When fighting the nija stay out of open areas,and when he goes invisible use your thermal goggles to get a glimpse at him.

Now when against Volcan Raven use a nikita and manuver it around the beds and hit him in the back,but this will be a little while so prepare to move around!

Fighting Against REX

Here's a small tip, we've seen the whole high tech tracking devices before, you should already know that you should throw Chaff Grenades.

At Stage two, If you're trying to evade from Liquid's eye sight, throw Flash Grenades, the stun is short, but you'll have enough time to disappear, and he'll spend time looking for you.

Fighting Rex

During round one, use Chaff grenades to disturb Rex' radome. While the Chaff is up, continuously fire Stingers at the radome (the magnetic scanning pad on the left of Rex's "head"). Remember to throw out more Chaff grenades as the chaff lightens up. Do this right, and Rex can't even touch you.

After a lengthy sequence infolving Gray Fox, you'll fight Rex once again. Since the radome is out of service, Liquid will manually target you with his eyes. Chaff grenades woun't help you in this round, so hide behind or underneath Rex to avoid being spotted. Run to either side of the beast and fire a Stinger into the cockpit when the oppurtunity comes along. Watch out for Rex's feet...

In the torture room...

When you are in your cell after the torture room...there are some ways that you can get out.But you cannot do them unless the guard is gone.The guard can be gone when he is:
a)at the bathroom
or b)sleeping.
When he is doing either,you have a chance to escape.If you don't know how to do this here is one way:when Otacon has given you the food and Wolf's handkecheif,use the ketchup the same way you will use Rations.When the ketchup is used,don't move.When the guard comes out,and you just freeze,he'll look at you and say "What the hell?"Then he will run into the cell,when he's close enough,stand up and either run away to the door,or make him outcold.If you messed up on the "ketchup plan", then here's another way.If the guard is either sleeping or in the bathroom again,crawl under the bed and wait until he finishes.When he checks up on you,he'll say the same thing he did with the ketchup,and once again,when he's close enough,make him outcold or run away from him.If you still failed,don't worry,there is one more hope,if he is,once again,in the bathroom or sleeping,an "unknown force"will open the cell door for you.

NOTE:I'm not sure if Ninja(the "unknown force")will come to you in other levels--I've only played the game in Easy.

ANOTHER NOTE:If you submitted to Ocelot's torture,then it is faster for you to get the stuff that Otacon will give you.

This might come in handy.

Meryls anger management

When you meet up with Meryl just before you have to defeat Psycho Mantis. Go up to Meryl and punch her then run away. She will then chase you and keep chasing you untill she catches up to you. When she does, you cannot move and she then hits you back, knocking you to the ground.

She will ask the small wolf to urinate on your box. Tadaa! You have become one with wolves. Now you can go in and out the cave without worrying about the wolves hurting you. Equip the box that the wolf pissed on, and walk under it.

Verified by: this cheat is unverified Submitted by: Iscariot on February 22, 2004

Camera

You can retrieve the camera from a secret room held in B2 of the tank hangar. To access it, you'll need at least two C4 explosives (three if you want to fight Ocelot right away). One will open the wall to the hallway that you'll need to get to to fight Ocelot. Another can be used to blow up the wall to get into the chamber where President Baker is being held, and the third explosive can be planted at the end of the hall before entering the chamber.
Once open, another hall guarded by two gun cameras will be revealed. I suggest using chaff grenades to stop the cameras from shooting, and you're going to need at least a level 4 keycard to open the door to the room where the camera is being kept.
Once you gain the camera, you can use it for some fun tricks, such as photographing the ghosts of the game developers (check these cheats for a complete listing).

When you beat the game, if you leave with Meryl, she will give you a prototype of an item called "Bandana." This gives you infinite bullets with any weapons you have. This appears in your inventory when you start your second game.

Uncencored Guard

To see the naked guard (without the censor) there are 2 ways 1) Is to equip the scope and zoom all the way in then if you do that then the censor shouldn't be there or 2) Get out the tourture room without getting the red box with Snake's items and weapons and his shirt then there will be 2 gun cameras then if your fast enough you will slip past the cameras and wonder around the cells without the shirt on but you could see the guard fully naked without the censor but the elevator will not work so you cannot finish the game like this so get back to the tourture room and get all your equipment back (the red box)
