  • Hints
      Automatic ration use

      By equipping rations as opposed to simply using them, they will automatically be used by Snake when needed. This is especially useful in Boss battles, or when there is a chance of being hit by a powerful attack.

      See FaMas bullets

      Shoot until you have two bullets left, then equip your bandanna and shoot again.

      Defeating Revolver Ocelot

      Use the shoot while running trick and follow him around the arena. Keep shooting him in the back until he is down.

      Defeating the tank

      Throw a chaff grenade on the ground, and when it explodes, run towards the tank and throw a grenade into the tank. If the grenade does not go into the tank, it will take a small amount of health off. However, if it did it will instantly kill the guard. It is possible to defeat the tank with only two grenades.

      Get past the wolves

      You can use the handkerchief to get past the wolves that are in the cave before the place where you first meet Sniper Wolf.
