  • Infinite BP

    Save the game, then load your saved game to reset all enemies and item chests in the area, while Raiden's BP remains the same. To earn the most BP, find an area with item chests containing large Holo-Chips. Then, save the game using the Codec, and restart from the previous checkpoint.

      In File R-01: Coup d’État, proceed until reaching the area with the Ferris Wheel. On top of one of the roofs in this area is an item chest with a large Holo-Chip, worth 5,000 BP.

Repeat this process as many times as desired.

Kill the Tripods, then backtrack to where Raiden originally dropped down to fight a secret Humanoid Tripod that will only spawn when you defeat every tripod in the area. After defeating the Humanoid Tripod, it will randomly drop two large Holo-Chips, worth 5,000 BP each. Collect the Holo-Chips, then save the game, and restart from the previous checkpoint. Repeat this process as many times as desired. If you Ninja Run, you can get 10,000 BP or more approximately every minute.

    During the cutscene just before the Monsoon Boss battle, the perspective of the player will be in first person view. If you look to your right, after awhile the PMC soldier will begin playing with a cat.

  • Giant watermelon Easter Egg

    During the VR training tutorial, Raiden will enter a large area with carts of watermelons. Slice the watermelons in this area, and a giant will appear in one of the corners.

  • Solid Snake Easter Egg

    Call Kevin on the codec as File R-01: Coup d'État begins. Then, complete the first enemy battle, and enter the building. Talk with Boris, then call Kevin again. Raiden will get into a conversation about his past, and how he earned his current title. Once this conversation ends, call Kevin once more on the codec to hear about Solid Snake. The following is the transcript of the codec conversation:

      Kevin: So Raiden, who was this that told you to find your own name? Before you stopped going by "Jack"?

      Raiden: The one and only Solid Snake. Hero of Outer Heaven, Zanzibarland, Shadow Moses, the list goes on.

      Kevin: Right, right — guy's a legend. I forgot you knew him so well.

      Raiden: Yeah. He saved my ass at Big Shell... Not to mention a few times after that... I've lost count. In terms of pure combat ability, he's one of the greatest soldiers I've ever seen. But it's not only that... He knows what's right, and he just gets it done. Period. No one can stop him. I've learned a lot from him... He'd kill me if he heard me talking about him like this.

      Kevin: Wow, I didn't know you were such a fanboy. I thought you were gonna start crying there for a sec.

      Raiden: Very funny, Kev.

      Kevin: Seriously though, did Snake know he had a stalker?

      Raiden: [Annnoyed sigh]

      Kevin: Hey, relax! I'm only ribbin' you. I just wish I got to meet the guy, you know?

      Raiden: I know.

      Kevin: ...You're no fun.

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Easter Egg

    While in a sewer, Raiden will encounter an enemy accompanied with a small boy. During the intermission sequence, the boy will shout "A ninja?! Cowabunga!," then say "Go ninja, go ninja, go" to Raiden. This is a reference to Vanilla Ice's "Ninja Rap" song from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret Of The Ooze.
