##########  6. COMPLETE WALKTHROUGH  ###########
Note : In this walkthrough, I included special notes, called the stuck notes. I 
put these notes on every difficult points, which most of the people are stuck. I 
give ONLY HINTS, not FULL EXPLANATION on the notes. When playing a game, I 
enjoyed finding out things by myself, not by reading a full walkthrough. That's 
why I put these notes on, so that the people who feels the same way as I do just 
browse my walkthrough, find the hints they're needed, and finish it by 
themselves. And if they still can't solve it, They can read the more thorough 
explanation below the notes. HAVE FUN !!
More note : This walkthrough is based on the import version. There might be some 
difference with the US version - because the US version has 4 difficulty levels. 
Those 4 difficulty levels differs on the location of items (ammunitions and 
ration), and how much items that Snake could bring after he defeats each boss. 
Furthermore, you will find the story in the animation are different. That's 
because I'm making the FAQ when I played the import version - and I'm just 
guessing the story at that time. I think it's better this way - cause it doesn't 
spoil the whole 'real' story. If you want to know the 'real' story, you can read 
it at the story section.
List of Stuck Notes :
1. How can I save the game ??
2. Where should I go after escaping from jail ??
3. What should I do after I defeat Ocelot ??
4. How do I get pass the electrified floor ??
5. What should I do after I defeat Ninja ??
6. How do I shot the sniper ??
7. What should I do to get rid of the time bomb ??
8. Where do I drop the Pal key ??
9. Where do I find the 2nd and 3rd Pal key ??

**************************DISC ONE WALKTHROUGH**********************

*******1st Act - The Dock*******
You finally arrive in the enemy base. The animation shows that Snake is coming 
from the water, using the diving suit. While he IS hiding, the Colonel calls him 
on channel 140.85. Now, let the action begins !!!
There are 3 enemies on this place, and 3 rations to get (even though right now 
you can only bring two rations at this time). 
The rations are : in the south west corner (in the water), in the north east 
corner, and in the south east corner. 
Kill the first two enemies, then wait for the third enemy to come in the 
elevator. Enter the elevator to go to the outside enemy's base.
++If the guard sees you and sounds the alarm, run to the water. Snake will jump 
into the water. You can not do this if the alarms don't go out.++

**Solid Snake opens his diving suit, and opens his goggle, revealing his face. 
When he stands up, the title METAL GEAR SOLID appears. Ain't it cool ?? ( And 
you thought that the first action was cool !! That is just the intro, you know 
?? )**

++ If you have finished the game with both endings (have bandanna and stealth in 
your inventory - and the save game has red colour letter), Snake will change his 
appearance. Instead of wearing his sneaking suit, he will wear a tuxedo. 
This was sent ++

*******Outside Enemy's Base - Helipod*******

The colonel & Naomi calls Solid Snake (140.85) thru the Codec

**Solid Snake hide behind the container, watching his enemy Liquid flies the 

The Colonel & Naomi call Snake again (140.85) and introduce Mei Lin. Mei Lin 
tells you that you can contact her in channel 140.96.

    ############## STUCK NO 1 #################
     How can I save the game ???
    ---------------- ANSWER   -----------------
     Contact MeiLin by using your Radio.

From now on, if you want to save your game, contact Mei Lin in 140.96 and choose 
the first option.

**Snake walks around and uses his scope to explore the area. The colonel tells 
him what to do.**

After the animation, go to the south west corner to get a ration. Go east to the 
snow, and go north. Hide behind the container, and kill a guard there. There's a 
ration to the left of one container, too. Go to the truck in the middle area. 
Jump behind the truck. Get the Socom gun. Go to the south-western of the truck. 
Get a chaff grenadex3, but be very careful with the lights.
Go west from there to go into a room with a camera. The animation shows that 
Snake notices the camera. Go behind the container. When the camera looks at the 
other way, get the stun grenades. 
You have got all the items you need in this place. You can now proceed to go to 
the air duct. There are two air ducts that you can go in. The first one is the 
duct in the north west corner, guarded by the camera. The second duct is in the 
upstairs, in the middle section. You can choose which duct to go. It doesn't 
matter because they all lead to the same place (The 1st level of enemy's base).
Before you enter one of the duct, the Colonel will call you through the radio 
(140.85). And when you are in the duct, someone will call you to the radio, too. 
It's Master Miller on 141.80. Go through the duct. If you choose to enter the 
upstairs duct, you will see the animation of 2 enemy talking to each other. Each 
duct contains one ration inside.
The Colonel will call you again on 140.85.

*******1st Floor of Enemy's Base A*******

If you choose to get in the lower duct, you will arrive in the lower level, but 
if you choose to enter the upstairs duct, you will arrive in the upstairs, too. 
Assume you come through the upstairs duct. Go to the left to get chaff grenade 
x3. Go right, but be careful because there's a camera there. Go south a little 
bit and enter the open door to the right. Get a thermal goggle there. Go 
downstairs after avoiding the camera. There's a box of Socom bullets under the 
stair. Take it then go into the elevator in the north middle part. Push the 
button beside elevator using O button.
Inside the elevator, go to floor B1.

*******Floor B1 of Enemy's Base A (Cell)*******

When you go out of the elevator, Mei Lin calls you at 140.96. After receiving 
that call, go along the aisle to the south, then to the east. On the end of that 
corridor, there's a duct containing a ration and a stair to the north. When you 
position yourself in front of the ladder, the Colonel will call you at 140.85. 
Answer that call, then climb the ladder.

   ***In The duct****
Just crawl through the duct. Then you will come to the junction. Turn left on 
the junction, and crawl until you reach the air holes. Use the look button 
(Triangle) + press Down on direction pad to see animation of a guard in the 
toilet. Proceed crawling farther to get Socom bullets. Go back to the junction, 
and go left. Crawl until you see the air hole, and look through the air hole ( 
with triangle + Down) to see Meryl doing sit up in her cell. 

++ After you see Meryl, go back and get out of the duct. Go into the duct again 
to see Meryl. You will see Meryl is doing one hand push up. Repeat going out of 
the duct and go back to see Meryl stretches her leg on the wall. Now repeat 
going out and back to see Meryl doing her sit up again. BUT NOW NOTICE THIS : 
MERYL IS NOT WEARING HER TROUSERS ^_^. Get out of the duct and go in again to 
see Meryl does her one hand push up (still not wearing her trousers). Get out of 
the duct and go in once again to see Meryl stretches her leg (still not wearing 
her trousers). If you go back and into the duct again, you only see Meryl does 
her sit-up, but now she wears her trousers. If you repeat going back and in the 
duct again, you see nothing changes.

Crawl again, and the Colonel will contact you through your radio at 140.85. 
Proceed crawling farther, and you will see this animation :

**Snake finally reached Office Chief DARPA's cell. Snake looks through the air 
hole, opens the airhole, and goes down to the cell. Then Solid Snake has a very 
long conversation with DARPA. This conversation brings Meryl attention, so she 
overhears it through the prison's wall. One soldier comes across the cell and 
warns DARPA not to talk to loud. DARPA continues his conversation with Snake. He 
told Snake about Metal Gear, Psycho Mantis, and PAL Card. Near the end of his 
conversation, DARPA gives Snake a LV1 Keycard. This keycard can open LV1 doors. 
Suddenly something struck DARPA......something mysterious !! DARPA is in pain, 
and then died. Meryl hears DARPA's voice, then starts to bang the prison 

After the animation, crawl under DARPA's bed. You will find a ration there. At 
this time you should be hearing someone knocks down the guard. Then the prison 
cell door opens. Go outside the cell ........

**Snake cautiously go outside. He looks on the floor, sees the guard that he 
previously saw in the duct was only wearing underwear. He was knocked down and 
tied up. Suddenly a rifle is pointed at Snake's head. Snake turns around. The 
girl who points the rifle at him shouts at Snake, tells him not to move.(By now 
I think we all know that the one pointing the rifle at Snake is Meryl. She wears 
the guard's uniforms). With his lightning speed, Snake manages to point his gun 
at her. They are talking so loud that they do not realise that there are three 
guards by the door. The door opens, and the guards come in.** 

++ If you haven't got a Socom when you entered the prison, you will see that 
Snake won't point his gun on Meryl (cause he didn't have it ^_^) - Instead, he 
will grab Meryl's rifle.
This was sent by Mike Meevasin  ++

Shoot the three guards with your Socom gun. There are 2 box of Socom Bullets. 
You can take them if you run out of bullets. Sometimes the guards drop Socom 
bullets or Ration. After the three guards died the alarm rings. Three guards 
come to attack you and Meryl. Meryl will kill these three guards (animation). 
Three guards appear again. Kill them all. Three guards appear once again. Kill 
them again. Then the last three guards throw three grenades on the floor. Avoid 
them by moving towards the door. Then kill the last 3 guards.

**Meryl go to the door, and check if everything's safe. After she feels it is 
safe to go outside, she runs to the elevator. Snake follows her. Then there's 
another animation, about a person's tied up in a room, being questioned and 
tortured. There were three other men inside that room (Psycho Mantis, Liquid 
Snake, and Revolver Ocelot). The animation is back to Solid Snake. Solid Snake 
tries to follow Meryl. Meryl, who is now inside the elevator, starts shooting at 
Snake, preventing Snake to follow her. Snake jumps to avoid the bullets and 
takes cover behind the wall. The elevator door closes. After that Solid hears a 
sound outside the elevator door. A floating figure appears.... it is PSYCHO 
MANTIS. He is saying a few words then disappeared into thin air.***

Then Naomi calls Snake at 140.85. Answer that call, and then go into the cell 
door again. Go south to the computer room. Get the Socom Bullets near the table. 
Go east to the toilet to get more Socom Bullets. Then go outside to the 
elevator, heading to Floor B2.

*******Floor B2 of Enemy's Base A - Armory *******

When you comes out of the elevator, wear the thermal goggle. There are 4 path to 
the south. Three paths from the left contain trap doors. You can see it through 
the goggle. 
There are 7 doors in this room. 6 doors to get the weapons, and 1 door to the 
south. Right now you can only open 3 doors.
Use the 1st level key card to open north middle door - get C4 explosives.
Go to the south middle door to get Socom Bullets.
Use the 1st Level key card to open south-west door - get grenades.

    ############## STUCK NO 2 #################
     Where should I go from here ??
    ---------------- ANSWER   -----------------
     Check the wall in level B2 
     there's a wall that you can blow using C4.

Check the southwestern corner wall. Using the look button (triangle), you will 
see that the colour of that wall is different from the other. Equip C4, then 
push yourself to the wall. Stick the C4 to the wall by using Square button. Move 
away, then press Circle button to blow the C4. The wall will be blown away, 
revealing a path.

       +++ NEW NEW NEW 5 : MORE HIDDEN ROOMS +++
++ There are two other hidden rooms on the north wall. One is in the left of the 
elevator, and the other is in the right of the elevator. The left room contains 
1 box of chaff grenades, and 1 box of stun grenades. The right room contains 1 
box of C4 and 3 box of Socom bullets.

Going through the path, you will find that the path leads to nowhere. But by 
using the look button again, you will see that the wall on the right can be 
blown too. Blow that wall and go through. Use the look button again. Blow the 
wall on the east and the Northeast (there are two paths to take). Before going 
any further, I suggest you check your Socom Bullets. If you're running out of 
it, go get them first or you will be sorry. Then go to the Northeast hole in the 

**Snake goes through the hole in the wall. There is a room behind that wall. 
There are 4 pillars inside the room and 1 big pillar on the centre of that 4 
pillars. An old man is tied on the big pillar. There's a lot of wire connecting 
the 4 pillars with the old man. Snake tries to help this old man. But when he 
approaches, the old man told Snake to stay away. There're bombs everywhere near 
the old man's body, connected by those wire. When Snake tries to come close 
again, there's a shot out of nowhere. Snake jumps to avoid the bullets. An enemy 
shows up with his 6-bullet gun, demonstrating his skill with his gun by spinning 
his gun around and around ( WHAT A COOL ENEMY ... ^_^). Then the enemy 
challenges Snake for a fight.

   *****BOSS NO 1 : REVOLVER OCELOT*****
Use your Socom gun. Ocelot will try to keep his distance with you. So run 
around, trying to get a close distance with him so you can shoot him. But don't 
waste your bullets here. There's only 3 box of Socom Bullets in this room. One 
of the box is positioned near the wire, so I don't advice you to get it, unless 
you are really short of bullets. And if you do, I suggest you get the bullets by 
crawling. DO NOT TOUCH THE WIRE. If you do, the bombs will explode, and the game 
will end. Try to get clear shot of Ocelot. And shot twice if you have the 
chance. This is an easy enemy....REALLY EASY, unless you are short of bullets.
---->BOSS TIPS : 
1. Try to get close and shoot him when he's reloading.
2. You can make the fight faster by using C4. But beware, don't plant the C4 too 
close to Baker. If you do, you will make the C4 tied in the rope explodes. This 
was sent by [email protected] ++ 

**Ocelot hides behind one of the pillar, reloading his gun. When he jumps out to 
shoot Snake, something's happening. A very fast and invisible figure moves in 
front of Ocelot and cuts his right hand, which is still holding a gun. Ocelot's 
jumps back, holding his arm painfully. Then that invisible figure cutting all 
the wire, so fast that the old man tied to the wire is released even before the 
bomb blow away. The mysterious figure then revealing himself to be seen....IT's 
a Cyborg Ninja (One of the coolest character EVER in a game ^_^ !!!). Ocelot 
runs away. Snake points his gun to the ninja. The Cyborg Ninja shouts and shakes 
his body then disappears before Snake can take any action.
Snake then talked to the old man, The old guy talks about Metal Gear, and 
there's a film about a rocket and military bases. Then the old man gives the 2nd 
level Keycard and a disc. Suddenly something strikes the old man, just like 
DARPA. The old man died without Snake knowing what or who does that.**

Then Solid calls the Colonel, Naomi, and Mei Lin at 140.85. After the 
conversation, Snake's life got longer and he can carry more of his inventory.
	Socom Bullet  - 25  -> 49
	Grenade       - 8   -> 12
	Stun Grenade  - 3   -> 6
	Chaff Grenade - 3   -> 6
	C4 bomb	  - 4   -> 6
	Ration        - 2   -> 2 ( doesn't change )

Go back to the weapon's room. Note that there are guards guarding this place 
right now. With the LV2 Keycard, you can now open the Southeast door to get FA 
MAS (Machine gun) and 2 box of bullets. Be careful with this room. Use your 
thermal goggle before you take FA MAS. There are 2 red lines on the ground. It 
means that there are infra red trap. Avoid the infra red ray by crawling under 
it. Go to the elevator and go to the 1st floor.

++ Equip your cigarette. The smoke that comes out of your cigarette will reveal 
the infrared. You can now see the infrared traps. But beware... your health is 
going down little by little.

right now.
Go to the Northeast corner. Use the keycard to open the 1st level door. Take the 
Socom Suppresser. Combine Socom with the surpresser. With this weapon, you can 
shoot a guard without sounding the alarm.
Go upstairs and open the 1st level door to the west. Get a chaff grenade and 
cardboard box A. Get out of this room and go to the north-eastern door (LV2) 
beside the camera. Get the mine detector.

     Use your radio to contact Meryl. 
     Find the right frequency

Press Select button to access the radio. Use your radio to contact Meryl at 
140.15. She will help you open the big gate downstairs (near the lift). Just 
wait until she opens the gate. After that gate opens, go through that gate. BUT 
BEWARE....Use the thermal goggle or your cigarette. You will see 5 infrared ray 
traps in this area. If you touch the light, the gate will be closed and the room 
will be filled with poisonous gas. You will die instantly.

******* Snow Area - Canyon *******

GOGGLE. You will see that there are Claymore bombs under the snow. They will 
explode if you step on them. Instead of trying to avoid them, crawl along the 
minefield. You will get the claymore mines in your inventory ^_^. Get all 5 
mines and check & equip your grenade in your inventory. Equip rations, too. Then 
go to the north ......

**Solid Snake sees a tank heading in his way (that's why the tank in the LV B1 
is missing), with Vulcan Raven riding on it. Raven shoots the mortar to Solid. 
Solid Snake jumps to safety.**

   *****BOSS NO 2 : TANK*****
The key to defeat the tank is to approach the tank and throw grenades in the 
tank. You must approach the tank in this way : Go south, approaching the gate 
where you come from, then go to the easternmost path, and go north. After you 
reach the safety rock, you will see a path along the snow that is lower than its 
surrounding. Crawl in this path to the west. You cannot get shot by the tank, 
because the snow is higher than the path (you are protected by the snow 
surrounding you). After you reach the western part, go north and hide behind the 
iron pillar. When the turret is not heading your way, approach the tank and 
throw the grenade on the tank. Run around the tank and throw grenades. After 2 
hit, the guard who drives the tank will fall from the tank, and a guard will 
replace him. Throw grenade two more times to the guard, and it's over.
---->BOSS TIPS : 
1. if you throw the grenade accurately on the guard steering the tank, you will 
see that it will only take one hit to take him down.
2. you can use chaff grenades to confuse the tank's detector. You can approach 
the tank.This was first sent by Jim Tamangan  

**Solid Snake approaches the guard, and takes the LV3 keycard from him. After 
Solid Snake goes to the Enemy Base B, the animation shows that Vulcan Raven is 
still alive. **

*******1st Floor of Enemy's Base B (Nuke Building 1)*******
Solid Snake gains longer life and more inventory space.

	Ration        - 2   -> 3 

Proceed to the north gate by crawling. You will get a radio call from the 
Colonel and Naomi (140.85). There are rules that you must obey in this room : 
1. You cannot use any weapon except for chaff grenade.
2. You should not be detected by the camera or the enemies. If you got caught, 
the enemies will release poisonous gas in the room.
There are some items in this room : chaff grenades in the north western part 
(behind the missiles), FAMAS bullets in the south east wall (under the camera), 
and Socom bullets on the north-western part of the truck.
Proceed upstairs, and go into the elevator. Go to level B1 go to the south door, 
and open the northeast door to get Nikita Missiles. Then go to level B2.

*******Floor B2 of Enemy's Base B(Nuke Building B2)*******

After you go out from the elevator, go east and press yourself to the wall. You 
will see a man on the other side of the wall. That's where you want to go right 
now. After that, go to south by using LV3 key. There are 2 cabinet-like-full-of-
holes devices on the left and right side. Those are air purifiers. Notice that 
the door in the south have yellow colour. That's because the room in the south 
has poisonous gas. 
Use the 3rd level keycard to open the south door. Beware of the poisonous gas. 
You can only stay for a limited time only in that room.
When you entered the room, You will see this animation.

**Snake surprises to see that the floor on this aisle is electrified. Solid 
Snake then looks at the wall, tries to find where the source of the electricity 
comes from. The animation shows where the power generator is. But it's in the 
other room.**

Then Snake had a call from someone that is not known (the vidcam shows no one). 
I think that man is trying to say that Solid Snake has to destroy that generator 
to proceed. 

    ############## STUCK NO 4 #################
     How do I destroy the Power Generator ??
    ---------------- ANSWER   -----------------
     Use your remote controlled Nikita Missile.

Solid Snake has to use the Nikita missile to destroy the power generator. It 
takes a few practises to do that. Do you know that you can control the Nikita 
missile ?? Just shoot it, and control it with your directional pad. Shoot the 
Nikita Missile and guide it through the aisle to the south. When there's a T 
junction, guide the missile to the west into another room. Then guide the 
missile to the northern room. Beware that the camera-controlled gun can shoot 
the missile, and the missile can explode if it hits the table, cabinet, and 
wall. After the missile goes to the northern room, guide the missile to the 
eastern room and guide it so the missile hits the power generator. The floor is 
now safe to walk on, but beware....the poisonous gas is still in there. So go to 
the north room between the air purifier, so you can breathe normally again.
Tips : use your triangle button to control the Nikita Missile from 1st person 

There are 3 doors in the aisle :
1st door (northern east) : contains rations
2nd door (middle east) : you can not open it right now (LV4)
3rd door (south east) : contains gas mask.

Use the gas mask to protect you from the poisonous gas. The gas will still 
affects you, but you will be able to stay longer in the gas filled room. 
Go south through the electric-before-floor. Go east and enter the door. Be 
careful of the camera-controlled-gun. Go to the air purifier. Right now you 
should hear a fight in the other room.
Go to the east room and to the north, using the LV3 card.

** Snake walked into the aisle. He stunned. The aisle filled with dead people. 
Bullets hole everywhere in the wall. Bloodstains are everywhere, on the wall and 
on the ceiling**

Go north, then .....

** A soldier comes from the north. Seems like he was really hurt. Then he fall 
and died **

Go a tiny little bit to the north again, and .......

** Snake hears a machine gun and someone's screaming. Snake runs to the voice, 
and sees something's weird. Snake sees a soldier floats on the air, as if 
something that is not seen holding him. The soldier then is thrown by that 
'something' to the floor - dead. That something now is revealing himself. He is 
the cyborg ninja who cut Ocelot's hand. Now the ninja goes to the northern room. 
The door's lock is broken.**

Go follow the ninja - enter the northern door, then ......

** Snake sees Otacon (the man that you saw behind the wall before) is frightened 
by something that can not be seen...something transparent. Otacon is so afraid 
that he pissed on his pants ^_^. The ninja reveals himself in front of him. 
Snake walks towards Otacon, and Otacon is surprised by Snake, thought that Snake 
is Ninja's friend. The ninja turns around and talks to Solid Snake. Feeling that 
the ninja's attention is drawed by Solid Snake, Otacon sneaks behind Ninja, 
runs, and hides inside a cabinet. Then ninja feels very angry and asks Snake to 
fight him.**

   *****BOSS NO 3 : CYBORG NINJA*****
Use only punches and kicks (O button), because the ninja can deflect your shots 
with his sword and avoid your bombs by jumping (including your C4 bombs).
Punch him 2 times, then there's animation where ninja puts away his sword. Now 
use hit and run tactic. Avoid his spinning kick. DON'T EVEN THINK THAT YOU ARE 
can break through windows, so just stay away. Sometimes he will try to stomp 
After his energy is depleted to 50 %, Ninja now uses his 'transparency' 
technique. Run around to find him ( and of course, kick and punch him ) before 
he finds you and kick your ass !!
After you managed to find him 3 times, the animation will show the Ninja is now 
hurts. He will now stay appear and fight like a man.
But beware, when you try to punch him, he will disappear and reappear behind you 
& punch you from the back.  The tactics is : punch once then go away from him. 
After he punches, go back and punch him.
After all of his energy depleted, the ninja is not dead yet. There's some 
explosion in his body. Don't go near because the explosion can hit you. The 
explosion is sometimes big, sometimes small. Wait when the explosion is small, 
approach him, and kick him. Do this three times, and you'll win.

++ 1. You can use your thermal goggle to see the Cyborg Ninja while he was 
disappearing. This was first sent by Siepiau ([email protected])

he's stun, you can shoot him.

**Snake calms Otacon that is still hiding in the cabinet, and manages to get him 
out of there. Snake talks to Otacon, asks him questions. Snake becomes impatient 
with Otacon's answer. Snake grabs Otacon by the collar. Then he releases him, 
and Otacon starts to tell the story about Metal Gear. The story continues with a 
film about the nuclear bomb in Hiroshima 09/08/1945. Then Otacon shows Snake 
that he can make himself transparent, just like the Ninja. Snake then calls 
Meryl at 140,15. But then something's happening to her and the radio is out. 
Otacon gives Snake a LV4 Security Card. Then Otacon tells a story about robots 
(Policenauts), then Otacon tells Snake that Snake can contact him at frequency

    ---------------------- ANSWER ---------------------
     Find Meryl. She disguised as one of the guards

++ Hide, and push yourself behind the desk or other sorrounding's item. From 
there, the camera will change and you will be able to watch the guards. Meryl 
has a cute way of walking - wiggling her behind ^_^. 
This was sent by John C ([email protected]) ++ 

One of the 2 guards in this room is Meryl. When she sees you, she will get out 
of the room and run to the women toilet (that's the east door that you can't 
open - Now you know why you can't open that door ^_^).
Go to the northernmost toilet ......

**Snake finds a set of the guard's uniform. Suddenly a rifle is pointed behind 
his head. Snake turns around to finds out that it's Meryl who points the gun at 
him. Meryl and Snake introduce themselves. Snake is interested on Meryl's tattoo 
on her left arm. Then they have a very long conversation. Meryl gives Snake PAL 
Key and 5th level card. Meryl gets out of the toilet, waits for Snake there.**

++ When Meryl sees you and goes to the toilet, follow her QUICKLY to the 
northernmost toilet. If you are quick enough, you will see that Meryl does not 
have time to change her clothes. You will see that in the animation, Meryl will 
not wear her trousers ^_^.

Go outside, then go to the south room. Now that you have the 5th level key, you 
can now open the southwest door. Get Diazepam (you'll need it later) and 3 box 
of FAMAS bullets. Get out of the room to join Meryl, and go to the aisle beside 
men's toilet. Open the door using the 5th level keycard. There's 5th level door 
there. When you approach the door, Meryl will approach that door, too. Approach 
Meryl, then ......

**Meryl suddenly has headache. Then the animation shows what inside the room (in 
B/W) - from the eyes of something / someone's floating. You can hear his breath. 
That something is floating approaching the door fast. Meanwhile Meryl's headache 
is suddenly lost. She asks Snake to open the door. But Snake is feeling strange 
about Meryl. She is not herself anymore. Her voice sound different 
.....Mysterious, isn't it ??**

Note : After the animation, try pressing the look button (Triangle). You will 
see that you are no longer looking from your eyes, but from Meryl's eyes ( or 
from someone's inside Meryl, maybe ?? )

******* The Commander's Room *******

Open the door, and go inside. Animation will show that the door shuts behind 
you. Wander around the room and you will see ....

** Meryl is controlled by someone behind her. That someone is the one that Snake 
saw in front of the elevator after DARPA died. He is Psycho Mantis. Meryl, under 
Psycho Mantis' control, points her gun at Snake.**

Now Snake is ready to face boss no 4.
   *****BOSS NO 4 : PSYCHO MANTIS & MERYL*****
Meryl is pointing her gun at Snake. She tries to shoot you, but you mustn't hurt 
her - How ??
There are two ways to confront Meryl : 
1. punch her until she's unconscious. But this is not a good way to treat a 
lady, so don't use it.
2. use your stun grenade. Meryl will fall down.

++ 1. Flip Meryl a few times, by pressing Square (without equipping any weapon) 
and direction pad. Flipping has no effect on Meryl's health, and is very fast.

2. Choke her 2 or 3 times. She will become unconscious. This was sent by Sean

Then there's animation where Psycho Mantis appears in front of Snake - floating. 
Snake points his gun on him.

++ Mantis says that he will look deep into your soul. Actually he's accessing 
your memory card. If you have other Konami's save game, such as Azure Dreams, 
Castlevania, etc - he will say : " So you like AZURE DREAMS ?". 
If you have US version, the import Konami's save game such as : Beat Mania 2nd 
Mix, Winning Eleven 3, etc will not be read by Mantis. Guess, the US version 
Mantis cannot read Japanese ^_^.

++ It says in the animation that Mantis is boasting about his telekinesis 
ability. Mantis tells you that he can perform his telekinesis on your Joypad ?? 
^_^ (Man, have you ever think that a character in the videogame can control 
things outside the game ??). He then tells you to put the joypad in the flat 
surface. Then he began to make the joypad moves by activating the strong 
vibrator on the joypad (if you have Dual Shock Controller). Fun  eh !!

Then the screen turns to black for the 1st time (it's normal - everybody I know 
experience it !! ). Then he begins to attack you.

       +++ NEW NEW NEW 9 : BLANK SCREEN +++
++ When you first fight Mantis, the screen will turn to black - and there's a 
word on the right side of the screen. It's called Hideo. In Japanese, when you 
have a problem on the transmission of the TV station, the station will show you 
this screen. It means that Mantis' power is so powerful, that he can control 
your TV. This was sent by    
But maybe this word is taken from the director of this game, Mr. Hideo Kojima.++

Use your punches and kicks only to defeat him. Don't use your bombs, cause they 
will explode as soon as you throw it. And don't use your gun, because he is 
really good at avoiding your bullet. 
Psycho Mantis has 5 patterns, so watch it carefully. Here's how to defeat them :
1st pattern : Mantis disappears for a short time, then he appears in other 
places - throwing a force ball on you. He does this 3 times. To defeat this 
pattern, use the triangle button to see from Mantis' eyes. From his view, you 
can predict where he's hiding. go there and punch him. 
2nd pattern : Mantis uses his telekinesis to raise 3 chairs in the room and uses 
them to protect himself from you. The chairs are circling on Mantis, making big 
and small circles. To defeat this, crawl and move beside Mantis (still 
crawling), then get up and punch him after the chairs' gone.
3rd pattern : Mantis uses 2 vases from the table to attack you. To defeat this, 
crawl and wait until the vases' gone, then punch him.
4th pattern : Mantis uses 3 deer heads to attack you. To defeat this, crawl and 
wait until the deer heads' gone, then punch him.
5th pattern : Mantis uses books from the cabinet and pictures from the wall to 
attack you. To defeat this, go to the upperleft corner, near the statue. Wait 
until Mantis comes there, then punch him.

After Mantis' energy depleted to 50%, he will control Meryl again to attack you. 
Use the stun bomb again on her. After that, he control Meryl again. He orders 
Meryl to commit suicide. Use the stun bomb again on her.
Now Mantis starts to use the 1st pattern over and over again. Find him all the 
time, and punch him. After his energy's become 15%, he will combine his 
technique. First, he uses pattern 3 & 4. Then he uses pattern 2 & 5. To defeat 
him, just crawl to avoid those things, wait until they're gone, then get up and 
punch him. You'll defeat him. 

1. Don't get discouraged while fighting Mantis. Mantis is really good avoiding 
your punches. You maybe will only land one sixth of your punches. 
2. If you cannot defeat Mantis, there's an easy way to do that. Just lose to 
Mantis once, then continue. When you begin this fight, break the statue on the 
northwest and northeast corner. After this, Mantis will not be able to avoid 
your punches as good as before.

++ 1. Use your thermal goggle to see Mantis while he was disappearing. This is 
easier than using the triangle button.
This was first sent by [email protected]    
2. When you face Mantis, the Colonel will inform you this way to defeat him. 
This is the theory : Mantis can read people's minds. He can read your mind, too. 
That explains why he can avoid your punches so well. In order to defeat him, you 
have to use 'your other mind' (like you have 2 minds !!). Consider your 'current 
mind' is your 1st controller. You can now use your 'second mind' by using your 
2nd controller. Plug your 2nd controller to the Playstation port, and use it to 
fight Psycho Mantis. Psycho Mantis cannot dodge your attack now. You can even 
shoot him, but you still cannot use your grenade or bombs.

Colonel and Naomi calls Snake at 140.85.

**Psycho Mantis is nearly died. The animation shows that his spirit is flying in 
the room. He tells Snake that there's a secret passageway behind the cabinet in 
the northeast. Then Mantis asks Solid to open his mask. Meryl sees Mantis' real 
face then shocked. Mantis then tells a story to Snake. Then he asks Solid to put 
his mask back on. At his last breath, he uses his telekinesis technique to move 
the cabinet. Then Mantis dies.**

south and to the east. Go to the south first to get FAMAS bullets, Diazepam, and 
ration. Then go back and go to the east hole to meet Meryl (see that the wolves 
are all fond of Meryl ^_^).
There's a ration behind Meryl. Then open the north door using your keycard.

++ Try hurting Meryl by punching or choking her when she's with the wolves. If 
you do that, the wolves will attack you. ++

close to Meryl, then hurt her by punching, choking, or shooting her - then 
quickly press L1 button to equip your Cardboard Box. Meryl will not ask the 
wolves to attack you. Instead he orders the wolf to pee on your box ^_^. Don't 
be ashamed. There's an advantage. You can walk around the wolves in the box 
without getting attack, because the wolves think that you're one of them. But 
don't forget which box to use. If you use different box, the wolf will still 
after you.

*******Path to Communication Tower A(Underground Passage)*******

**Meryl says to Solid that the path is full of booby traps (claymore mines), so 
Solid have to be very careful about it. Then Meryl show Solid how to get pass 
the mine field.**

Guide Snake to follow Meryl's footprint, then ......

**Suddenly, from unknown place, a sniper is targeting Meryl. Seeing the infra 
red on Meryl's body, Snake warns Meryl about the danger. Meryl doesn't move 
because she's so surprised. She just follows the red mark pointing at her body, 
then down to her left leg. Then Meryl's got shot on her left leg. Meryl screams. 
Snake jumps to safety. Then the sniper shoots Meryl at her right leg. Meryl goes 
down. Her pistol drops. Meryl tries to reach for her gun, but the sniper shoots 
Meryl on her left hand. Snake wants to get close to help her, but he can't. 
Meryl knows that somewhere in the tower there's a sniper aiming at them.**

    ################### STUCK NO 6 #########################
     How do I shot the sniper ??
    ---------------------- ANSWER --------------------------
     You have to go back to Enemy Base A to get Sniper Rifle

The Colonel and Naomi then call Solid at 140.85. 
After some time, you will see that you cannot get close to Meryl, because the 
sniper shots you first. Get 4 claymore mines from the snow. Then the Colonel 
contacts you again in the radio - orders you to get the sniper's rifle in the 
floor B2 Enemy's base A (I know, it sucks - but we have to save Meryl ).

Go back to the elevator - go to floor 1, then go out to the south. Cross the 
open area (snow) again. This time, please be careful. The enemies have put some 
camera and more claymore mines on the ground. Go to the elevator, then go to 
floor B2. Get the sniper rifle (PSG1) in the northwest door - use the LV5 
keycard to open it. Be careful, there are infrared traps on this room. Use 
thermal goggle.

The colonel calls Snake again at 140.85.

After you pick up the rifle, go back where Meryl was shot (It's a long way again 
). You will see that Meryl is no longer there. You can only see Meryl's blood. 

   *****BOSS NO 5 : SNIPER WOLF*****
Use your sniper rifle. Find the enemy. Shoots before the enemy does. If you ran 
out of bullets, you can get one box of bullets to the left. Don't waste your 
bullet, because it is limited. If you feel that Snake is not stable anymore, use 
Diazepam. Diazepam is a pill or drug to keep a sniper calm. Shoot her a few 
times, then she's down.

Solid Snake gains longer life and more inventory space.
	Socom Bullet  - 121  -> 145
	Grenade       - 24   -> 28
	Stun Grenade  - 15   -> 18
	Chaff Grenade - 15   -> 18
	C4 bomb	  - 12   -> 14
	FA MAS Bullet - 251  -> 301
	Claymore      - 12   -> 14
	Nikita        - 16   -> 20
	Ration        - 4    -> 4
	Diazepam      - 6    -> 8

Go north, then check the ledge on the left wall. There's a box of PSG1 bullets. 
Go north until you come to the tower. Then go west to get a box of ration. Go 
behind the barrel to get a box of Socom Bullets. Go to the right. There's a box 
of FAMAS bullets under the stairs. Go upstairs and get a box of PSG1 bullets.

*******NOTE : NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME TO SAVE .The choice you are about to make in 
the next scene will affect the ending of this game. And you cannot let Snake 
dies in the next scene, because you cannot continue if you fail.   *********

Go downstairs and head towards the LV6 door to the right (even though you know 
that you can not open it ^_^). Then ....

**The alarm rings when Snake approaches the door. Two soldiers come from Snake's 
behind and point their rifle on Snake. Then Sniper Wolf comes along with the two 
soldiers. Sniper Wolf asks Snake to drop his gun. Snake drops his gun and raises 
his hands. Sniper Wolf admires her enemy then scratches Snake's left cheek. Then 
one of the soldiers hits Snake in the back of his neck. Snake falls down.... 
When Snake begins to regain his consciousness, he can only see 6 lights, like in 
the operation room. Snake cannot move. His hands and his legs are tied to the 
bed. Snake can hear 3 people are talking. Then the bed rotates, so the Snake is 
now in standing position. Snake can see that 3 persons: Liquid, Sniper Wolf, and 
Revolver Ocelot. Snake talks to Liquid, then Liquid got called from someone. 
Liquid leaves the room. The conversation continues - than Sniper Wolf leaves the 
room, too. that leaves Snake with Ocelot. Ocelot is about to torture Snake.**

You control Solid Snake right now. Snake has two choices in this place : 
1. Do not surrender. Tap O (circle) repeatedly.
2. Surrender. You can do this by pressing Select.


Assume you did not surrender. Ocelot will try to torture you three times. There 
are two bars on the screen : 
   1. Life bar - it's Solid's life bar.  
   2. Time bar - it's shows how long the torture will end.
The object of this scene is : Snake has to survive the torture. Ocelot will 
torture you three times. During these torture, Snake's life bar must not empty. 
When the torture begins, tap O repeatedly to fill the life bar. Tap really fast, 
because the life bar carries on to the next torture. The 2nd torture is longer 
than the 1st torture, and the 3rd torture is the longest. If you don't make it, 
you will have to load the game, because there's no continue option. 
Snake then is put in jail. In the corner of the jail, Snake sees DARPA's corpse. 
When you press L2 or R2, you will see that Solid doesn't have anything in his 
inventory. No stuff, no weapon, ZIP.
There's a guard walking around Snake's jail - sneezing all the time. 
Then the Colonel and Naomi call Snake at 140.85.
After the call, the guard will go to the cell door, and call you for more 
torture (Actually the guard says : It's ShowTime !! ). You are brought into the 
torture room once again. Survive this torture again. Then Snake is put in the 
jail once again.

       +++ NEW NEW NEW 11 : MASSAGE ANYONE ?? +++
++ If you use Dual Shock controller, and you survived the torture, then you will 
hear this conversation in the Codec. When Naomi contacts you on Codec, she will 
asks what's wrong. Snake will say that his arm hurts. Naomi then orders you to 
put the controller on your arm. Naomi then sends 'signal' to relieve the pain - 
by vibrating the controller !! ^_^. Talking bout massage, eh !! ( Is there any 
massaging game in PSX ?? ) ++

### If you choose to surrender in the game, this is where you will start. In 
other words, if you choose to surrender, you will automatically put in jail and 
don't have to endure the second torture.

The Colonel calls you at 140.85 again.

Wait for a moment, use the look button on the guard. You will see that the guard 
will have a stomach-ache. It was so sudden and so bad, that you will see the 
guard running very fast to the toilet ( I think it's about to explode ^_^ ).
After the guard leaves you, wait for a moment. Someone will call you at the 
door. It's Otacon !!

**Snake is so relieved to see Otacon. After they have a conversation, Otacon 
gives Snake a bottle of ketchup, a scarf, a LV6 Security card, and a ration. 
Then Otacon hears that the guard is coming back. Then Otacon leaves.**

Now you got to act fast!! You want to get out of the prison. There are two ways 
that I know to escape from the prison, but you got to do it before the guard 
arrives from the toilet.
1. Use the ketchup by equipping it, lying down by pressing X button, and press O 
button. You have to do it before the guard arrives. Snake will pretend to be 
dead. The guard arrives, sees that Snake is dead, then open the cell door to 
check him out.

++ If you use the ketchup to fake dead when the guard is around, he will laugh 
at you. 
This was first sent by Siepiau ([email protected]) ++

2. Hide (crawl) under the bed. When the guard arrives, he will think that Snake 
has escaped. He will open the prison door to check him. 
3. If you do not do anything to escape, you can escape by just waiting in the 
cell. When the guard has his stomach-ache, someone will rescue you. It's Cyborg 
Ninja !! 
This was first sent by Siepiau ([email protected])  

Then what should we do with the guard ? You can kill him, but there's a more 
amusing way!! Run from the guard, go outside the cell, go north, then east. You 
will see a LV6 door on the north and a ration on the south. Pick the ration, 
then open the LV6 door. You will see the animation that the guard runs after you 
and finally be able to point you with his rifle. But he has a stomach-ache again 
!! So he will leave you and go to the toilet ^_^.
Look to the right of the torture bed. You will see there is a red box. Pick it 
up. It's Snake's belonging. There's an animation where Snake go behind the 
torture bed, changing and equipping his stuff back ( NOW WE'RE BACK IN BUSINESS 

NOTE 1 : Check your inventory (L2 button). Please check if you are carrying a 
time bomb. Sometimes the enemy put a time bomb on Snake's inventory. When the 
time bomb runs out of time, it will explode. The explosion will kill Snake 

    ################### STUCK NO 7 ####################
     How do I get rid of the bomb ??
    ---------------------- ANSWER ---------------------
     Just throw the bomb. 

NOTE 2 : After the torture, sometimes Snake will catch cold. ( IT'S TRUE !! ). 
Maybe because he don't wear any shirt in the prison. SO from now on be careful 
while hiding, sometimes Snake will sneeze. The enemy can hear it, and will check 

To get rid of the bomb, you must wait for the mysterious man to call you. 
Usually he will call you 1 minute before the bomb explodes. To throw the bomb, 
hold L2, and press the directional button to choose for the time bomb, then 
while still holding the L2 button, press O button. It's the same way of using a 
ration or Diazepam.

Open the door on the east, with LV6 keycard, but be careful with the camera-gun. 
When you open the door, you will see that the area is familiar to you. IT'S 
LEVEL B1 at ENEMY BASE A(Cell). But the enemy has put 2 camera + gun outside the 
elevator, so you have to be very careful.

Go to the elevator and go to floor B2. Pick every ammo there, and go to the 
place where you fought Ocelot. Go south and go east. Now you can open the 2 
doors that are previously locked. Open the lower door to get stun grenades and 
chaff grenades.

Go back to the elevator to Level 1, and proceed to Enemy's Base B.

******* Enemy's Base B *******

We're here just to collect the items that we cannot get previously.
Go to the elevator - floor B2. Go south to the electric-before floor. Go south 
until you reach the junction, and take the left path. You can now open the south 
east door. It contains body armor.
Go back to the elevator - floor B1. Go to the south and open the middle west 
door (LV6). You will get medicine. This medicine will cure Snake's cold.
Then go to the place where Meryl got shot.

++ When you go to the cave where the wolves are, equip your scarf. You will 
charm the wolves, like they're charmed by Meryl. 
This was sent by Olong([email protected]) ++

**Solid looks at the place where Meryl get shot by the sniper. The floor is 
still covered with Meryl's blood. Snake got a flashback about Meryl's getting 
shot. Then the Colonel, Naomi, Miller, and Mei Lin call you at 140.85.**

After the animation, proceed north to COMMUNICATION TOWER A.

Enter the LV6 door where you previously get caught. Go along the aisle, and pick 
FAMAS bullets, & Socom bullets along way. Now check your FAMAS bullets, and 
equip FAMAS. Enter the door to the west. The camera will spot you, the alarm 
will go off, and guards are coming, trying to catch you !! At this place Snake 
doesn't have to sneak. He will have to fight all the guards. Get the Stun 
Grenades and Rope, then go south - open the door. Go upstairs fast. Shoot 
enemies that are trying to catch you. Run upstairs as fast as you could. 
Eventually you will find LV6 door. When you approach it, Otacon will call you at 
141.12. He told Snake not to open the door. Just go upstairs (you cannot open 
the door anyway). There's a lot of ration, FAMAS bullets, and Socom bullets on 
the way, so pick them up.

++ 1. This can be done if you have a bandanna. If you're trying to get the FOX 
rank, then you know that you may not kill more than 25 enemies and may not use 
more than 1 ration. This place should give you a headache, because if you must 
kill all the enemies to survive. If you don't shoot the enemies, then you must 
use your rations to survive, which means you cannot get the FOX rank. To fix 
this, equip bandanna and stun grenades. Throw stun grenades FREQUENTLY as you 
ascending the stairs. By this the guards will be stunned all the time. But the 
screen will be white all the time - makes it hard for you to see the way (when 
you're in the top floor). If it happens to you, you can stop throwing the stun 
grenades for a while to look where you go. Usually when you reached the top 
floor, the guards won't be able to follow you. You will not lose your live and 
not kill even a single guard if you do this right.
2. If you haven't got a bandanna, then try this : Flip the guard instead of 
shooting him. I've tried this, but you musn't get too close to the guard. If 
you're to close, the guards will hit you with his weapon.

On the top floor, you can get Socom Bullet and FAMAS Bullets. Go along the path 
and you will come to a ladder with ration on the south of the ladder. Pick the 
ration and climb the ladder. Then open the door at the northeast corner (LV6 
door). You're on the roof now.

**Solid Snake arrives at the roof. He examines the roof, and notice that there's 
a satellite disc. Below the satellite disc, there's a LV 6 door on the nearby 
building (Communication Tower B).**

Go to the stair to the north, then ...

**Solid Snake is on its way to the satellite disc. Suddenly some missiles strike 
the disc, causing the disc to be broken. The disc falls to the ground below. 
Snake jumps to safety. While Snake is wondering who shot the disc, suddenly 
Liquid Snake with his chopper comes from behind. Apparently, it was the chopper 
that shots the Satellite disc. Snake runs towards the Communication Tower B 
roof, but the path there is damaged by the missiles that wrecked the Satellite. 
Snake could not cross, but Snake has to reach that LV6 door he saw before, so 

Equip the rope, and go to the fence in front of you.

**Solid Snake ties the rope on the fence, while the chopper blows the building 
behind Snake. Snake comes down the building and lands on a ledge. Liquid's 
chopper comes and try to shoot Snake**

Snake got call from the Colonel - 140.85. Apparently, the Colonel explains to 
Snake how to use the rope.
Press X button to jump down - you can swing to the left and to the right by 
holding the directional button.
Press O to climb - it's not much use.

The objective is : to go down to the bridge that connect the Communication Tower 
A to Communication Tower B. On the way, avoid gas and the chopper's bullets. 
Keep going down until you arrive in the snowy area.

++ Notice the LV6 door on the ledge. It's the door that you previously can not 
open when you climb the stairs. You can not open it because it is frozen. Now 
you can open the frozen door by blasting it with C4. Just stick the C4 on the 
door and blow it.  You can now go back to the stairs area. But I guess there's 
nothing that we can do by going back.
This method will not work if you try it from the other side of the door (when 
you are chased by the guards previously). 
This was sent by [email protected] ++

In this area, you can pick a ration to your left and a C4 to your right. DON'T 
TRY TO CROSS THE BRIDGE FIRST. By using your scope, you can see that three 
guards are guarding the bridge on the other side. If you get too close, the 
guards will start shooting at you and you won't be able to shoot them. Instead, 
use your Nikita Missiles to kill them. Usually it takes about 3 missiles to 
bring them down. You will know whether the guards are dead by listening to the 
music. If the music fades, then the guards are all dead. Cross the bridge. Near 
the end of the bridge, the chopper will appear in front of you and try to shoot 
you. Use your keycard to open the door to the west. Don't forget to pick the 
ration along the way.

   +++ NEW NEW NEW 13 : SNIPER'S SNAKE ??+++
++ You can use your sniper rifle to take the guards down. It's harder than using 
the Nikita, because you might get hit from their shots, but it gives you a 
feeling like you're a sniper.

Inside the room you will find Stinger Launchers and Stinger Missiles. Then open 
the door to the south. 

Go south to reach the elevator. Press the elevator's button. You will see that 
the elevator is not working. Check the elevator by walking to the elevator's 
gate. Then go back to the door, and now take the path to the right (behind the 
elevator). Get grenades, FAMAS bullets, and Socom bullets. Go east, and climb 
down the stairs. Keep climbing down until you find that the stairs are broken.  
Go up again to the elevator. Before reaching the elevator ...

**Snake hears someone is trying to operate the elevator as well. Snake hides 
behind a pillar, getting ready with his gun. When he jumps out to point the gun, 
he finds out that the man is Otacon. Otacon had a long conversation with Snake. 
Then Otacon makes himself disappear, and go to the stairs leading to the bottom 

Now you can go to the east - go upstairs. But beware, everytime you climb the 
stair, use the look button. There're camera-equipped-guns on the top wall. Use 
the chaff grenade to make the camera jammed. Then climb upstairs again. There're 
4 sets of camera, so you will need 4 chaff grenade to go to the top.
On the top floor, you will see a ladder leading upstairs. Instead of climbing 
the ladder, go along the south path to get 2 box of stinger missiles, chaff 
grenades, FAMAS bullets, and ration. By now you should have a full inventory of 
Stinger Missiles (20/20). Now go back and climb the ladder. Go through the door 
on the northeast side. You will reach the roof.

** The chopper appears in front of Snake. Liquid talks to Snake, then he flies 
his chopper to attack Snake.**

   *****BOSS NO 6 : CHOPPER (HIND)*****
Use your stinger missiles to shoot the chopper. Stay beside the container in 
front of the door. This container will be your safety place. It will be your 
'shield' against the chopper's bullets, so don't go to far from this container. 
There's a ration on the south west area of the container, and a stinger missiles 
on the south east corner. Don't waste your stinger missiles, so don't shoot if 
you don't have a clear shot.
Use your radar to know the chopper's location. If the chopper is shooting from 
the south, take cover on the north of the container, etc. Use your stinger radar 
to check where the chopper is. After the chopper takes a few hits, usually the 
chopper will then fly below the building. You cannot shoot it when he's under 
you, so shoot the chopper only when the chopper flies above you. If you put the 
crosshair of the Stinger on the chopper, the stinger will lock on the chopper. 
But in some cases, the lock does not guarantee to be sure hit. For instance, if 
the chopper is too far, then the missile will miss. 
When you hit the chopper 4 or 5 times, the chopper will go away, and animation 
shows that the chopper is shooting the south area. Go to the north before the 
missile hits you. 
Shoot the chopper 8-10 times again, then the chopper will fire its last 
missiles. Avoid it by running to the south west corner. Then the chopper is 
toasted !!

**The chopper is starting to fly unstable. Liquid is panic. The chopper falls 
apart. Then the chopper falls to the ground. Liquid screams " 
SSSNNNNAAAKKEEEEEEEE !!!". Then the view changes : from the Snake's back. Snake 
is watching an explosion causing by the chopper.**

Otacon calls Snake at 141.12. He tells Snake that he has fixed the elevator.

Go back down to the elevator - don't forget the security cameras!! You still 
have to use 4 chaff grenades to go to the elevator. Then press the button on the 
elevator. You can use the elevator now.

**Snake enters the elevator. Suddenly the elevator bell rings. Snake feels 
confused. Is there something wrong ??** 

Then press the elevator button to go to floor 1. The elevator door closes, and 
the elevator starts to move. Suddenly Otacon calls at 141.12. He says that some 
guards are in the elevator, too. They're using the transparency technique, so 
Snake can not see them.

Now is fighting time. Kill 4 transparent guards. Use FAMAS or C4.

Sniper Wolf asks Snake to end her pain ( to kill her ). Snake points his gun on 
her. Otacon, watching the scene from far, feels very sad for Sniper Wolf. Sniper 
Wolf asks Otacon to bring her rifle. Otacon brings the rifle to her. She holds 
the rifle, and asks Snake to shoot. Otacon does not have the courage to watch 
this, so he turns his back and covers his ears. Then the camera zooms out fast, 
the screen becomes all white, then..... BANG !!
Snake uses the scarf to cover her face, then he leaves the place. Otacon shouts 
to Snake while watching Snake leaves. Then he makes himself disappear, and leave 
the place too.**

You are now free to roam the snow field area. There's a lot of door. I list them 
all :
- There are 2 doors on the west. The northern one (LV6) contains 4 Nikita 
Missiles and guarded by 1 camera. The southern one contains Cardboard box C and 
2 rations, guarded by 2 cameras.
- There are 2 doors to the east. The north one contains 2 boxes of PSG1 bullets, 
2 boxes of Socom Bullets, and 3 boxes of FAMAS bullets no camera. The south one 
contains 2 boxes of chaff grenades and 1 box of grenades guarded by 2 camera.
- There are 3 doors to the north. The left door leads to the enemy's last base. 
You cannot open the middle one right now, because it's LV7. The right one 
contains 1 box of diazepam, 1 box of stun grenade, and a ration - but the place 
is covered with claymore mines. 

Go to the north - northwest door, which leads to the enemy's Last Base. Avoid 
the cameras, go to the north west corner to get a box of Socom bullets. Go east, 
then go downstairs........ DISC ONE Ends.

++To change to disc two, wait until the METAL GEAR SOLID logo appears on the 
screen. Then open your disc cover by pressing the open button, BUT DO NOT PRESS 
THE POWER OR THE RESET BUTTON !! You will see that the disc has stopped 
spinning. Remove the first CD, and put the second CD on your PSX. Close the 
cover, and press START on your controller. The game will now load.++

**************************DISC TWO WALKTHROUGH**********************

*******LV 1 of Enemy's Central Base - Blast Furnace*******
Go downstairs, and open the door. Go north and go west to the bridge to get a 
box of chaff grenade. Then go to the bridge on the south, leading to the west 
wall. Press yourself to the wall, then walk sideways to the south to get a box 
of Socom bullets. Then walk sideways to the north to reach the north bridge. But 
be careful - there's a crane moving around. If this crane hits you, you will 
fall to the molten iron and burned to death !! Walk sideways and press X to 
duck. When the crane moves above you, get up (by pressing X again) then go to 
the north bridge. 

++ If you have problem when crossing the ledge, you can destroy the crane with 2 
stinger missiles or with 2 nikita missiles. Actually, it's OK if you shoot just 
one time, cause the crane will stop moving.

Go north and go downstairs. You will find Socom bullets under the stairs. You 
can find a ration if you take the west path (downstairs), and you can find C4 
explosives if you walks to the south. Go north and downstairs. There's a box of 
Socom bullets under the stairs and There's a door on the northeast. Don't enter 
this door first. Go through the south - it leads to STEAM ROOM (REMEMBER THIS 
PLACE AS YOU WILL COME HERE AGAIN). Get 2 boxes of PSG1 bullets and 2 boxes of 
Nikita Missiles. Crawl to the south west under the pipes. You can get 2 box of 
Stinger Missiles, and 1 box of chaff grenades. Go back through the STEAM ROOM - 
go north. Open the door to the northeast.

In the next room, go north and you will see that an elevator is coming to your 
way. Before you go to LV B1 with the elevator, explore the room first - There 
are 2 boxes of FAMAS bullets on the south west, and 1 box of Socom bullets on 
the northwest corner. Get 2 boxes FAMAS bullets on the east, and get one box of 
Socom bullets behind the east container. Now you are ready to go down with the 
elevator. Just press the button on the panel with O button.

**Just as the elevator starts to move down, 3 guards appear from behind the 
container. They jump on the elevator.**

Fight those 3 guards with your FAMAS rifle. These guards are tougher than the 
ordinary guards. If you want to kill them fast, you can throw them outside the 
elevator. After those bad guys are dead, proceed to LV B1 of the enemy central 

*******LV B1 of Enemy's Central Base*******

Go north of the elevator, then go to the east. There's a camera-equipped-gun 
inside. Get a Socom bullets on the north. NOW USE YOUR THERMAL GOGGLE and go 
south. There are claymore mines on the south side. Crawl to get the Claymore 
mines. While still crawling, go to the southeast corner to get ration and to the 
north east corner to get a box of FAMAS bullets.
Then go down with the elevator. Press the button on the panel - Use O button to 
do that.
Now you are going down on the elevator. There are lots of birds circling you. 
Then Master Miller calls you at 141.80. Enjoy the ride to floor B2.

     +++ NEW NEW NEW 16  :  DON'T KILL THE RAVENS +++
++ If you kill the ravens that are flying there, the Colonel and Naomi will warn 
you - calling you not to become a scarecrow and not to kill the raven's again 
This was first sent by Jim Tamangan  ++

*******LV B2 of Enemy's Central Base*******
This place is so...chilling. You can see that this place is colder than any 
other place in this base. 
Go west behind the container to get Nikita Missiles and C4 bombs. Then go to the 
east containers to get ration and Nikita Missiles.
Then open the door on the north.

**Snake goes into a big-refrigerator-like room. There're a lot of raven birds in 
there. Then Snake sees someone's lying on the container in front of him. The 
person stands up and talks to Snake. It's VULCAN RAVEN, the one who attacks 
Snake with the tank (remember boss no 2 ??). Vulcan Raven jumps down to meet 
Snake. Now Vulcan Raven is fully equipped. He has this HUUUGGGEEEE Gaitling Gun 
(looks cool, isn't it ??). Then Vulcan Raven demonstrates his ability - the 
ability to control the bird. A bird lands on Snake's shoulder, stays there then 
leaves. After a few words, Raven is now ready to fight Snake.**

   *****BOSS NO 8 : Vulcan Raven - 2nd Encounter*****
Don't walk in front of him, he will shoot you wildly. Instead, use Nikita 
Missiles. Guide the Missile so it hits him. But don't underestimate him, he can 
shoot your Nikita Missile if he sees it. So guide your Nikita Missile to hit him 
from behind or from side. You have to guide it around the container - not in the 
straight line so he will have tough times to gun it down. If Raven gets close to 
you, predict which path he will take and plant claymore mines and C4 bombs. 
There are Stinger Missiles, Nikita Missiles, and ration. After a few hits, Raven 
starts to shoot at containers, so the containers are falling down, blocking 
several ways. Raven is now moving much faster than before. Claymore mines don't 
work on him right now, so use the Nikita Missiles only.

++ 1. Use your grenades. Pick one of the sets of boxes in the room and have 
Raven follow you there (or just wait until he comes there).  Throw a grenade at 
the corner that Raven is one side away from and then continue around the box 
towards Raven's back.  The grenade will land just past the box's corner and 
Raven should see you just as you turn the corner (his gun should just become 
visible)... while he stands there shooting the grenade will explode, hitting 
him. You can do this until he has 15-20% life left... where the pattern still 
works but you have to throw the grenade earlier (in other words, make an 
educated guess as to Raven's exact path) and you obviously can't use an area of 
only 1 set of boxes.

2. Use the stinger missles against him. They lockon thru walls, so as soon as 
the gun started to appear around the corner you could launch and by the time the 
missile arrived all of him would be in view, the explosion would give you time 
to clear off to another vantage point and start lining up again.

**Vulcan Raven is now hurting very bad. Bloods are everywhere on his body. He 
talks to Snake, and give him the LV7 keycard. And then he tells Snake about 
DARPA's dead - while in prison : After Snake went away from the cell, Vulcan 
Raven came and picked up his body. It was not DARPA's after all !! It was 
someone disguising as DARPA. After telling him the story, he orders the birds to 
eat him !! The birds are starting to eat him, then Snake leaves him. When Snake 
turns around, he finds that Vulcan Raven's body is no longer there. The birds 
have eaten him completely. **

Solid Snake gains longer life and more inventory space.
	Socom Bullet  - 192  -> 217

Then Snake got calls from the Colonel and Miller, talking about Naomi at 141.80.

Note : You can now go back to the snowfield area to open the 7th level door. It 
contains 4 boxes of Stinger Missiles and guarded by 3 camera.

After you defeat Vulcan Raven, open the door on the north. Get a box of chaff 
grenade on your left. USE YOUR THERMAL GOGGLE. You will see that there are 2 
trap doors on the floor. After crossing the trap doors, take a box of ration. 
Take a look around with triangle button. There is a lot...A LOT of camera-
equipped-gun. So use your chaff grenade to distract the camera. Cross the 
bridge. You can go to east to get 3 boxes of Stinger Missiles. Open the door to 
the north, but before doing that get a box of Stinger Missiles in front of the 

*******METAL GEAR REX's ROOM*******

Go downstairs to the north then ........

**Snake is now standing in front of METAL GEAR REX !! (Man, look how big it is 

Go north to the junction then take the path to the left. Get a chaff grenade on 
the corner.  Then go to the north, and go downstairs to get a ration. There's a 
river to the west. There are sometimes items in the river (the position of the 
items are random), but you will take damage in the water. To check whether 
there's an item or not, use your thermal goggle. Go back upstairs and go back to 
the front of Metal Gear Rex. Take the east path now, and go downstairs to get 
FAMAS and SOCOM bullets. Go back upstairs and proceed to the northeast. There's 
a ladder there. Before you climb the ladder, Otacon will call you at 141.12. 
Climb the ladder afterwards.

Go east to pick up the chaff grenade. Go back to the junction and take the west 
path. Go south to get FAMAS bullet. Go to the north. Just before you climb the 
ladder, Otacon will call you again at 141.12. Climb the ladder afterwards.

There's a ladder to the left, but you maybe want to explore the area first. Go 
to the north path to get FAMAS bullets, chaff grenades, and 2 boxes of stinger 
Missiles. Now you are ready to climb the ladder. 

Now you are on top of Metal Gear REX. Otacon and the Colonel will call you at 
141.12. Now climb down the ladder to the left.

Go along the path to the north, west, then south. Get FAMAS bullets, and 2 Socom 
bullets on the way. Go east a little bit, and climb stairs to the south. Then 

**Snake sees two persons in the Control Room. They are Revolver Ocelot and 
Liquid Snake (apparently he's not dead from the helicopter blast !!). They're 
talking about their plan. Snake hides behind the wall to hear their 
conversation. They talked about project FOXDIE (??) and project OUTER HEAVEN 
(??). Without Solid's knowledge, there's a camera near Snake. 
Snake calls Otacon at 141.12. Otacon explains to Snake how to use the PAL Card. 
He also explains about the three marks on the computer. One of the marks is the 
same as the mark on the PAL card. 
Then Ocelot sees Solid in the camera. Ocelot shoots at Solid. Solid is so 
surprised that he dropped the PAL card. The PAL card is now falling to the river 
below. Snake tries to catch the card, but he can't make it. Liquid calls Snake 
from the control room, and the Control Room's door closes.**

The alarm rings. The guards are coming at Snake. Kill the guards. Run back to 
the top of Metal Gear Rex. The guards will stop following you. Go downstairs. 
You must look for the PAL key in the water. Sometimes you will get a bomb. If 
you do, Master Miller will warn you at 141.80. Drop the bomb by accessing the 
inventory screen (L2) button, selecting it by using directional pad, and while 
still holding the L2 button, press O button. 

    ################### STUCK NO 8 #######################
     Where do I drop the PAL card ??
    ---------------------- ANSWER ------------------------
     The PAL card is brought by the rat. 

Look for the PAL card. The rat brings the PAL card. You can get the PAL card by 
touching, shooting, or bombing the rat. The rat will drop the PAL card. But 
sometimes in the US version, the card is not brought by the rat, it's just in 
the water. I experienced this once. 

After you get the PAL card, go back to the control room (where Ocelot and Liquid 
having a chat previously). Use the chaff grenade to make the cameras jammed. 
Then use the PAL key on the computer laptop according to the symbol. Look at 
your PAL key's symbol in your inventory. Go to the computer with the same 
symbol. Then there will be an animation where the square thing behind the 
computer goes down, and the card will go out of the computer. Now you have to 
put the PAL key with the same symbol on the computer.

    ################### STUCK NO 9 #######################
     Where can I find the 2nd and 3rd PAL key ??
    ---------------------- ANSWER ------------------------
     You don't find them. You change the symbol.
     PAL keys symbols change according to the temperature.

Now this is really tricky : The symbol on the PAL key can change. The change 
depends on the temperature on the room you're at. The yellow symbol (C) appears 
when you're on a normal temperature room. The blue symbol (W) appears when 
you're on a low temperature room - cold. The red symbol (Z) appears when you're 
on a high temperature room. 

I assume you have put the yellow card into the computer (yellow colour is the 
default colour). To change the card colour to blue, you have to be in a room 
where the temperature is low, such as : the room where you fight Vulcan Raven, 
or the snow area outside. Stay there for about 2 minutes, then the card colour 
will change automatically. Then go to the Control room to insert the second card 
into the computer. Then go back to the elevator to floor B1. On the elevator 
Master Miller will call you at 141.80. Proceed to the elevator to level 1. Go 
south to the STEAM ROOM (the room where there pipes and steam everywhere - It's 
a high temperature room). Stay there for two minutes, then the card symbol will 
change to red. Make your way back to the control room on Level B2. On the 
elevator, Naomi + Colonel will call you at 140.85. Naomi will tell you about a 
guy name GREY FOX. 

Go to the Control Room - once again, use the chaff grenade to make the cameras 
jammed. Then equip the PAL key then walk to the right computer. 

**The square thing behind the computer goes down. All keys are opened. The 
computer says that Metal Gear is now ready to use !! Snake is so surprised. He 
thought that the PAL keys are supposed to stop it !!
Then 141.80 Miller calls, thanking Snake for 'helping' him to operate Metal 
Gear. Snake is so surprised and angry. Then the Colonel appears on the vidcam 
and angry at Snake.  Miller opens his glasses, and changes his hair, revealing 
himself. MILLER TURNS OUT TO BE LIQUID SNAKE ALL ALONG !! Miller has used Snake 
to operate the Metal Gear REX, without Snake even knowing it !!. Then Liquid 
sounds the alarm. The door in the Control Room closes, and the room now is 
filled with poisonous gas !!**

Equip your gas mask, then use your radio to call Otacon at 141.12. Otacon will 
try to help you. Wait, then Otacon will call you at 141.12, tells you that he 
manages to override the security. The door now opens.
When Snake goes out from that door, he sees Liquid is running towards the Metal 
Gear REX. Get a ration to the south then follow Liquid. you will see the 

**Snake sees Liquid is standing beside Metal Gear REX. Snake points his gun on 
him, but Liquid says something that makes Snake put down his gun. Then they have 
a conversation (something about FOXDIE and Naomi). After a long talk, Metal 
Gear's cockpit is opening. Snake quickly points his gun on Liquid, trying to 
shoot him. But Liquid is faster. He jumps into the Metal Gear REX's cockpit, 
closes it then starting the elevator. Snake jumps to the Metal Gear REX's base. 
Then the base elevates until it reaches the upper floor.**

   *****BOSS No 9 : METAL GEAR REX*****
Use your stinger missiles. Aim at the disc on the Metal Gear REX's left 
shoulder. Lock on it, then shoot. The tactics is : to shoot the Disc, then run 
between Metal Gear REX's feet to the back. Wait for Metal Gear REX to turn 
around, and shoot the disc again. By running between the legs, Metal Gear REX's 
homing missiles will miss. But avoid going near his right leg. He will stomp you 
- and if you hit, you will die instantly !! Do this until he is defeated. But 
remember, don't waste your life bar because the fight will continue.

1. FOR IMPORT VERSION : One thing you should know when you fight Metal Gear REX 
(1st) is : Metal Gear REX uses detector to find you (you can see it in the top 
right map) and luckily, his detector can be jammed with chaff grenade. So when 
the fight starts, go directly in front of him before Metal Gear REX moves. 
Before Metal Gear REX gets up, equip chaff grenade and throw it in front of him. 
Metal Gear REX will not be able to move. Then quickly equip your stinger 
missiles, aim it at the drum-like thing on Metal Gear REX's left shoulder and 
shoot it. When the missile is on its way, quickly equip the chaff grenade and 
throw it. Quickly equip your stinger missiles and shoot him again. So the 
tactics are : quickly switch between chaff grenade -> stinger missiles -> chaff 
grenade -> stinger missiles etc. If you do it right, you will not lose any 
This was sent by Will Bakali ([email protected] 
2. Somehow the 1st tactic doesn't work on the US version. I've tried it on 
normal mode, and I ended up getting hit by the missiles. So here's the tactic : 
stay under its feet. Metal Gear REX will have hard times finding you, and he 
will stop for a while. Take this chance to go to his behind- left side, then 
shoot the Radome with your stinger missile from behind. Then repeat the method. 
Sometimes Metal Gear REX will move so fast that he will see you at times. He 
seems to move all the time, making it hard for you to shoot the radome. If it 
happens, use your chaff grenades. The chaff will make the Metal Gear REX to miss 
all his shot, and sometimes keep repeating his last moves (such as : keep firing 
his laser without aiming you). You can shoot the stinger at this time or you can 
go under his feet like the tactic above. The chaff grenade will make the cone of 
vision sensor from red to blue.

   ***Animation*** - THE COOLEST ANIMATION IN THIS GAME ^_^ !!!
**Metal Gear REX is now broken. It seems to malfunction. When Snake approaches 
it, suddenly Metal Gear REX starts to move again towards Snake, try to stomp 
him. Snake retreats, then a figure running and jumping from Snake's behind 
towards Metal Gear REX. It's Ninja, or should I say Grey Fox !! Grey Fox helps 
Snake by holding Metal Gear's leg. Metal Gear REX tries to stomp Ninja, but Fox 
dodges, and jump backward. While on the air, Fox uses his right arm to shoot 
Metal Gear Rex's Disc. The disc malfunctions for a little while, giving time for 
Fox to hide behind the container with Snake. Snake and Fox had a conversation, 
while Metal Gear REX is trying to find them by shooting all the containers. Fox, 
thinks that hiding is useless now, tries to reach for the Stinger Missiles. He 
jumps, dodges every Metal Gear REX's attack. But when he jumps in front of Metal 
Gear REX, Metal Gear REX fire his laser beam. This laser beam cuts Fox left arm. 
Fox jumps backward, trying to shoot REX with his right arm, but before he does 
that, Metal Gear REX runs forward and slams Fox on the wall with its head. Now 
Fox is stuck between the wall and Metal Gear REX's head. Fox is still trying to 
shoot the disc. Metal Gear REX now retreats. Fox drops to the ledge in the 
second floor. The cockpit now opens. Liquid talks to Fox. Fox shouts to Snake, 
ordering Snake to shoot Liquid. Snake aims his stinger to Liquid, but he seems 
to hesitate. Liquid, in Metal Gear REX, then push Fox from the ledge to the 
floor, then stomps him on his body. Fox speaks to Solid. But then Metal Gear REX 
walk backwards, stomping over Fox whole body !! Fox is dead. Solid Snake feels 
so angry and start to attack REX.**

   *****BOSS NO 10 : METAL GEAR REX - 2nd Encounter*****
Use your stinger missiles again. Now aim for Liquid inside the cockpit. Use the 
same strategy as before, until he is toasted !!

++ Move behind Metal Gear REX all the time. Liquid will have troubles on finding 
you. After some time, Metal Gear REX will stand still. Shoot the cockpit from 
under his feet. Repeat this until Metal Gear REX is toasted !!

**Metal Gear REX seems to be malfunction. When Liquid tries to stomp Snake, 
Metal Gear REX becomes unstable. Metal Gear Solid is now wrecked. There are 
explosions everywhere. The explosion hits Snake, and throws Snake to the wall. 
Snake is unconscious. Apparently, Liquid is still alive. Liquid approaches 
Solid. Then the screen fades. 
Then the animation shows Liquid talking to Snake on the top of Metal Gear REX 
(which is now wrecked). The place is now surrounded by fire.  Snake is being 
tied up by Liquid. After a long conversation, there's a real live video about 
scientists, and about the Desert Storm operation in Iraq (1991). After another 
long conversation, Liquid shows Snake that he had Meryl !! Snake's so surprised 
to know that Meryl is not dead. Meryl is lying unconscious and being tied up 
too. Snake calls the Colonel on 140.85. After the chat, something's happening. 
Snake asks Mei Lin, then someone (unknown) appears in vidcam and talks to Snake. 
After the conversation on the radio, Liquid releases Snake and asks him to fight 
one on one. To get the situation more exciting, Liquid put a time bomb beside 
Meryl and put the timer for 3 minutes.**

   *****BOSS NO 11 : LIQUID SNAKE *****
You don't have anything on the inventory or weapon, so you can only uses punches 
and kicks (O button). Approach him, then punch him. Don't go near the edge of 
Metal Gear, you can fall down ( Not exactly fall, because you will be hanging on 
the edge and manages to get up - but it will waste a lot of time ). The time 
limit is 3 minutes. If time is up, then Game Over. Beat him up. If his energy is 
low, he will use his dash attack on you. Go away from him, wait for his dash, 
then dodge at the right time. He will miss the attack and stand still for 
sometime, leaving himself vulnerable. Punch and kick him at this time. you will 
defeat him.

Go to the right through the door. Pick a ration there. Then go left. You can 
pick a ration beside the stair. Get the ration, climb the stairs, and go to the 
door on the left.

Animation will show that Meryl (or Otacon) will be seen by the camera. The alarm 
rings and the 3 guards are coming your way. Fight the guards with your punches

When the jeep starts, go to the Jeep. Snake will now uses the gun on the jeep. 
The gun has unlimited ammo. Meryl (or Otacon) will be the driver. Use your gun 
on the barrel outside the gate. The barrel will explode and the gate will be 
open. Meryl (or Otacon) will drive jeep through.
After some driving without any enemy, then Meryl (or Otacon) has to stop the car 
because there're barricades. Blow the barricades by shooting at the barrels in 
front of the barricade. Kill 2 guards there. Then Meryl (or Otacon) will drive 
through. After some driving, they will be stopped once again by the second 
barricades. Shoot all 3 guards there. Then go through. 
After a few moments of safe driving, then a jeep approaches from behind. IT'S 
LIQUID SNAKE !!! (Oh man.... How can I kill this man ???). Liquid is trying to 
follow you and bumps you with his car. Just shoot him. After a few shots, the 
camera will change. Shoot him again. After a few shots, the camera will change 
again, like the first one. After a few shots, Liquid is now trying to shoot you 
from the side. Aim your gun to him. If you aim correctly, Liquid will be shot 
everytime. Then Liquid will try to bump your car from the side. Shoot him. Then 
Meryl (or Otacon) will try to warn you that there's a cliff outside. Liquid 
accelerates his car, and suddenly stops in front of your car. The two cars crash 
each other, and fall to each side.
