Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Tips

Bypassing Gekkos
Shoot five tranquilizer rounds into the legs of a Gekko. It will collapse and thrash around on the floor. You can walk past without being spotted while that is happening.

Or:

Shoot one Tranq. round in each of the legs, and it will also fall down.
