Successfully complete the game. The digital camera will be available when a new
game is started.The digital camera is located in Strut E Shell 1. Go to the
bottom of the screen and locate the platform with three red lights on it. Climb
up onto it and equip the Z.O.E. Box. When the conveyor stops, press [Action] to
climb on. You will be taken to another room. Press [Action] again to get off and
retrieve the Digital Camera. Exit the room in the same fashion.
Stealth, Bandanna and Wig bonuses
Complete the following goals to get the Stealth (invisibility), Bandanna
(unlimited ammo for Snake), and the Wig (unlimited ammunition for Raiden). To
get Stealth and Bandanna, complete the Tanker mission three times on three
different difficulty settings (all on the same saved file) and get 120 dog tags
(40 on each difficulty; you can miss some because there are 42 on very easy, 43
on easy, and 48 on normal). To get Stealth and Wig, complete the plant three
times on three different difficulty settings (all on the same save file) and get
all the dog tags.
Plant chapter: Angry Rose
When you are covering E.E. with the sniper rifle, shot a lot of birds. They will
contact you on the CODEC. The next time you try to save, Rose will get mad at
Plant chapter: Emma comments
When you are sniping the guards to get Emma across the oil fence, get Snake to
snipe for you. Use the directional microphone to listen to Emma talk to herself.
She says things about how she thinks Raiden is cute.
Plant chapter: Shaver
You can get the shaver in the Plant chapter only under the extreme difficulty
setting. You will give it to Snake later, who will shave his beard near the end
of the game.
Tanker chapter: USP Suppresser
After completing the game once and saving it, start a new game with the saved
data. On the Navigation Deck after the battle with Olga, go up the ladder to
where you would normally get the Thermal Goggles. On the middle platform, before
the goggles, should be a USP Suppresser on the left. You can now equip the USP
with it and muzzle the gunfire for the rest of the Tanker chapter.
After you complete the Tanker chapter three or four times, you can find the USP
Suppresser on the navigational deck after you defeat Olga. It is located on the
second floor on the lookout, near where the thermal goggles are found.
Tanker chapter: Secret passage
In the Holds 2 room, go all the way to the left to find a hatch. Open it, and
you will climb down into a small area. Crouch and go through the vent on the
ground. You will eventually see a gun clip fall through and a man will start
talking. His shadow will be on the ground. Wait there until his shadow leaves,
then move through the area. After you get past that, you will reach an opening
and an intermission sequence will begin. After it ends, crawl through a vent on
the right side of the small room. After you crawl through, you will find a
ladder. Climb up the ladder, and it will lead you to a small perch. Look down at
the bottom of Metal Gear RAY, and you will see Ocelot standing there. He will
then go away. You can keep doing this and experiment with things to do with
Tanker chapter: Vulcan Raven action figure
Immediately when you enter the engine room, there is a small Vulcan Raven figure
standing on the ground with a flashlight shining on it. If you shoot it, it will
start shooting very small balls around and will repeatedly say "Raven!", or
Avoiding alert mode
When a patrolling guard sees you, run into a room where the screen goes black
and tells you where you are. The game will not go into alert mode, evasion mode,
or caution mode.
Easy radio shots
To knock out an enemy's radio easily, when you hold them up shoot it (on the
belt to the right of their back). Also shoot an enemy's radio when they are
knocked out to prevent them from calling for help if they wake up. If you shoot
at an enemy's radio when he is calling for backup, it will be destroyed and you
will have a better chance to kill him. This also works if you throw a Chaff
Grenade at a enemy's radio.
Instead of doing half an hour of pull-ups, go to a place with two rails at the
top and bottom, evenly lined up. Then, do the hang-drop-catch ten or twenty
times to get a fast level 2 and 3 grip.
Equip a ration icon. When your life reaches zero, the ration will automatically
restore part of your life so you do not have to.
Deactivating C4 bombs
When deactivating the "Baby C4 bombs", the last one for the very easy and easy
difficulty settings is under the submarine hanging from the ceiling in the
bottom of Strut A Shell 1, where you started out as Raiden. The one on the hard
difficulty settings always move around the room, usually in the caged area under
the stairs or behind the computer controls.
In the Shell 2, B1 after retrieving Emma, go to the elevator. Plant a C4 in the
middle of the bugs crawling around on the floor. Walk a short distance away and
enter first person view. Detonate the C4. If done correctly, bugs should
splatter all over Raiden's face.
When Emma is crossing the oil fence, look with your PSG-1 sniper rifle. Snake
will have a green mask on his face.
Emma and Snake's funny comments:
When Emma is walking on the oil fence and Snake is in his sniper position, take
your Directional Mic and point it at both of them.
Collecting dog tags
Use this trick to collect dog tags from nearly all guards. The only drawback is
that it may take some time, depending on where you are in the mission; knocking
out all other nearby guards before starting and targeting reporting guards last
is recommended. If you cannot get close enough to a guard to demand his dog tags
without being spotted, begin by tranquilizing him from a distance. Run to where
he falls. Pick him up from the shoulders to make sure he is facing up. Position
yourself so that you are standing in line with his head (but not literally on
top of him). Also, make sure that when he stands up there is enough room in
front of him that you can run around and demand his dog tags. When he starts to
get up, equip you M9. The moment he reaches a standing position, hold him up.
The guard will not have time to turn around and see your character. To wake up
guards faster, use either the Coolant Spray technique outlined elsewhere or prop
the guard against a wall (feet first, preferably), enter first person view, and
punch at the highest part of his body. Both ways will get them up faster, but
make sure you are in a good position to hold them up in case they wake up faster
than expected. This technique also works well to salvage failed attempts (i.e.
you were spotted, panicked, and tranquilized him, which is a good reason never
to have your USP or Socom equipped when first holding someone up as you do not
risk panicking and killing the guard by accident.)
Wake up a guard in sneaking mode
While Ninja Raiden is in sneaking mode, walk up to a unconscious guard and enter
first person view. Send a thrust (stab) into the enemy's head. This will wake
him up. Kill the guard and hide his body so the other soldiers will not find it.
While Raiden is in sneaking mode, walk up to a unconscious guard and enter first
person view. Aim at the enemy's head, then keep punching him. This will wake him
up. Kill the guard or he will call for back up. Hide his body so the other
soldiers will not find it.
Complete the Tanker chapter with Snake. After that, get to the roof with Raiden.
You will see a group of birds. Shoot one with the M9. The rest of the birds will
fly around. If you see one go directly above your head, it should send some
droppings on you. You have to be in first person view. The bird droppings will
also come off the screen when you go back to third person view.
When playing as Raiden in the Plant chapter, go into strut C after the
intermission sequence where Vamp kills the SEALS. Go into the women's bathroom,
open a stall, then go into first person view. Look at the toilet. This may
require a few times attempts. Call the colonel and he and Rose will be mad at
you and Rose will not let you save the game. You can also go into the men's
bathroom and call the colonel when looking at the urinal and he will excuse
VR Missions: Get taken away by Gurlugon
On Raiden's seventh variety mission in VR mode, when you fight Gurlugon, equip
the enemy uniform and the AK and let Gurlugon attack you. He will stop the
attack and fall in love with you. He picks you up and leaves with Raiden, and
Raiden tries to get free. Note: This counts as a mission failure, but is funny
VR Mission: Gurlugon kills himself
When playing through Raiden's variety VR missions and you reach Gurlugon, hide
behind the tall box on the left closest to Gurlugon. When the box is destroyed,
a magazine appears. Gurlugon will go crazy and ends up killing himself. This
counts as a success in the VR mission.
