  • Bonus combat vests

    Successfully complete the game to unlock new combat vests.

  • Big Boss Extreme mode

    Successfully complete the game to unlock the Big Boss Extreme difficulty.

  • Replay bonus

    Successfully complete the game, and save when prompted to create a cleared saved game file. Start another game session, encounter Mk II in Act 1, and load the cleared saved game file to get your Drebin Points, weapons, ammunition, items, and special items from your previous game.

  • Alternate ending

    If you fight Mantis with a Sixaxis controller, the ending is different than if you were using a DualShock 3 controller.

  • Easy Drebin Points

    First, acquire the drum can. You do this by finding the soldier that is hiding in the can and using it as a bathroom in Act 1: Middle East - Downtown. After that, go up ahead a few feet, where you will see three crates. When you have gone past them, you will see just two crates. You will also see about three rebel soldiers fighting. One is carrying an RPG and the other two have machine guns. They will die and respawn continuously. You will have a chance to pick up the RPG after the soldier has died three times. Do so because each RPG is worth 6,000 Drebin Points. The important thing is to stay anywhere behind the two crates, otherwise the trick will not work. Going further than the two crates will stop the respawning loop of the soldiers dying. The only way to get the RPG without breaking the respawning loop is to use the Mk II.

    When you enter the first hangar in Shadow Moses (with all the mini-Gekkos inside), kill all of them, and proceed to the next area past the two large Gekkos outside. Once you get inside, turn around, and go back to the hangar. All the Gekkos should have respawned. You will get approximately 20,000 Drebin Points each time you clear the area, and the entire process takes about five minutes. There is a ration in the room on the other side of the railing when done on the "Naked Normal" difficulty. Do not forget to pick up the guns and kill the big Gekko outside the base on the other side as well as all the mini-Gekkos. The bandana is not required, but if you do not have it, you will use a lot of ammunition. The grenade launcher is recommended for taking out the mini-Gekkos quickly. Be careful with the grenade launcher as it has a slow reload time. If a Gekko gets too close, you will not be able to reload.

  • Cheaper Drebin prices

    Set the PS3 system date to a Wednesday or Sunday, and Drebin will have cheaper prices. Additionally, all of Drebin's prices are cut by 50% during Act 5.

  • Easy Bandana and Stealth Suit

    To unlock the Bandana and Stealth Suit easier, wait until Act 5 (Drebin's prices are 50% off) to get the items for 2.5 million Drebin Points each instead of the 5 million Drebin Points they normally each cost. -From: Dallas4life04

  • Extra battery

    Save the game during Act 1. Go to the Mission Briefing screen, and select the saved game from Act 1. Press Square to control the Mk II while on the plane. Move the Mk II upstairs, and search for an extra battery. Collecting it will double the operating life of all battery-powered devices in the game.

  • Statue locations

    The statues required to unlock the Solar Gun can be found at the following locations:

      Frog: In Act 1: Middle East - Advent Palace garage, atop the Nomad vehicle.
      Octopus: In Act 2: South America, in the Research Lab Boss room, upper right room.
      Raven: In Act 3: Europe, on the top floor of the human phase of the Boss fight.
      Wolf: In Act 4: Shadow Moses, behind Snake's starting spot in the human phase of the Boss fight.
      Mantis: In Act 5: Outer Heaven, near the northern-most door during the human phase of the fight.

  • Audio flashbacks

    Experience the following audio flashbacks to get 1,000 Drebin Points for some of them:

      Find the crop circle near the river while tracking Naomi in Act 2 after the Laughing Octopus fight (flashback of the Colonel acting strangely in Metal Gear Solid 2).

      Find the Hind (flashback of the end of the Hind confrontation).

      The middle of the helipad (flashback of Hind D speech).

      The small shack to the West of the area (flashback of "A surveillance camera?!").

      Enter through either of the vents instead of the door (flashback Master Miller's introduction).

      Stand near the tank hangar's door (flashback of Meryl's "Where I can see you" speech).

      Stand in the decontamination room before the hallway to Otacon's office (flashback of Cyborg Ninja fighting Genome Soldiers).

      Inside Otacon's lab (flashback of Grey Fox's introduction).

      Stand in the filled-in trench leading up to the Comm Towers (flashback of Meryl telling Snake to continue without her).

      Climb as far as you can up the Comm Tower nearest where you enter and walk around (flashback of beginning of the Hind confrontation).

      In front of the other Comm Tower, facing the exit (flashback of Otacon's "What are you fighting for?" speech).

      Stand near the door leading back to the room where you fought Vulcan Raven (flashback of Raven's final speech).

      In Shadow Moses, near the elevator (flashback of Infiltration speech).

      Return to the crashed Hind chopper after the Crying Wolf fight (flashback of Liquid Snake being shot down).

      Aim the Mk.23 SOCOM while at Shadow Moses (Snake will say "Just like old times").

      Move the camera view directly overhead and move around (Snake will say "Just like old times").

  • Control opening commercials

    When starting a new game, you are shown two random commercials. You can change the channel by pressing Up and Down to get new commercials. There is also a Hideo 1 and Hideo 2 channel, which are like Video 1 and 2.

    At the start of the game when the commercials are on, you can press X to cycle through different channels. You can see a segment where David Hayter is being interviewed wearing a Solid Eye.

  • Control intermission sequences

    During an intermission sequence, press D-pad Up to zoom the camera in, then use the Right Analog-stick to pan the camera around. The harder you press Up, the more zoomed in the camera view. Also, some intermission sequences have prompts to see it through Snake's eyes by holding L1 (look for the icon at the top left of the screen) or view flashback images by repeatedly tapping X when a prompt appears (look for the icon at the top right of the screen). You can also pause an intermission sequence by pressing Start.

  • Intermission sequence extras

    During the following intermission sequences, press L1 to see secret events:

      Laughing Octopus: Laughing Octopus quickly leaps away outside the window during one of the L1 sequences when you first meet Naomi.

      Naomi's chest: In Act 2, after Snake loses his Psyche when Namoi tells him how long he has, press L1 to look at her chest and recharge Snake's Psyche.

      Naomi upskirt: In Act 2, when Snake's talking to Naomi and drops his cigarette, use the hidden L1 option to look up her skirt.

      Psycho Mantis' ghost: During the first intermission sequence with Beauty and the Beast, after using the option to look through L1, look to the left to see the ghost of Psycho Mantis.

      Sorrow: During the Psycho Mantis intermission sequence, keep L1 held. When Psycho Mantis disappears, you will hear Sorrow say something. Hold L1 (even though you are not prompted), and you will see Sorrow. Press X to start a flashback.

  • Listening to radio during briefings

    During the mission briefings, touch the the radio on the table upstairs with the Mk II, and it will play music.

    By switching the radio on and off in Act 4, you will get different songs, including a remixed version of the "Love Theme" from Super Smash Bros. Brawl and the ending theme from Policenauts.

  • Reset OctoCamo appearance

    Shake the Sixaxis controller to return Snake's OctoCamo to its neutral (black and blue) appearance. Note: This can also be done during intermission sequences.

  • View motion capture actor

    When a character is first introduced, press R2 to view that character's motion capture actor instead of his or her voice actor.

  • Reducing stress

    Sit in a box to reduce stress faster.

  • Regaining Psyche

    If something during an intermission sequences causes Snake's Psyche gauge to decrease, rapidly tap X to replenish it.

  • Regaining health and Psyche

    To regain health and Psyche, hold X go into the prone position with no weapon equipped. Snake's health and Psyche gauges will begin to recover. This is useful when trying for a no rations/recovery items completion.

  • Switching stances faster

    To switch between crawling and crouch-walking (and back) faster, move forward while pressing X. Use this trick to get prone behind cover quickly after crouch-walking past an enemy.

  • Easy hold-ups

    Shoot the tranquilizer gun at your target. Get close to the sleeping target, and go into the crouch position. An icon will appear to wake the target up. Press [Action] to wake your target. When he or she is about to wake up, position yourself at either side or the back of the target. Aim your gun, and Snake should hold-up the target. This is an easy way to do CQC and knife kills if you want to get the Assassin's Creed Emblem and costume.

  • Shoot from inside a dumpster

    There are dumpsters throughout the game which you can use to hide. Move in front of them, and press Triangle when the prompt appears. Once inside, if you have a handgun, The Operator for example, you can hold L1 to lift up the lid of the dumpster and aim your gun from inside.

  • Throw grenades underhanded

    While throwing a grenade, lightly hold L1 (default [Aim]) instead of holding it down completely.

  • Ignored by PMCs

    PMC soldiers will ignore you when wearing Otacon's or one of the Beauty's face paints if you are not attacking or displaying a weapon. This allows you to track the Resistance easier.

  • Faster iPod navigation

    Instead of rotating the Right Analog-stick to control the iPod, use Triangle, Square, Circle, and X.

  • Secret ghost photographs

    Equip the Sorrow Doll, and have the camera from the Nomad. You can use that camera to find thirty ghosts in Shadow Moses. After taking pictures of them, they can be viewed in the photo album with a new option. Note: The doll is only needed to see the ghosts prior to taking the photographs.

    In Shadow Moses, when you return to Otacon's office to shut down security and turn on the power, take a photograph of the area to the left of the Policenauts poster. When viewed, there will be a superimposed image of Hideo Kojima's face.

    Take a picture of the wolves after the Crying Wolf battle. Sniper Wolf's face will appear in the corner.

  • Secret Sunny and Naomi pictures

    Do not pick up the camera during the briefing when it first becomes available. Wait until Act 4 to get the camera, and it will have some funny pictures of Naomi and Sunny playing around in the kitchen.

  • Hidden development team autographs

    While tracking Naomi, get to where there is a PMC soldier standing next to a claymore. Move northeast from there to find a metal plate on the ground with signatures and handprints from the game's developers. Note: Lay down on it to get the handprint design for your camouflage. Register it to memory, and you can use it whenever desired.

  • Hidden crop circle

    When you are tracking Naomi's footprints in Act 2 after the Laughing Octopus fight, you will arrive to a river. Instead of crossing the river, look to your left. You will see another set of footprints. Follow these, and they will lead you to a crop circle where you will hear some strange dialog by the Colonel about an alien abduction.

  • Vomiting Snake

    If you kill a large enough number of enemies in a conflict zone, you will hear Liquid from Metal Gear Solid say "You enjoy all the killing, that's why!", and Snake will vomit. Note: You can delay the vomiting by hugging the wall. The next time you kill someone, however, it will happen again until you finally vomit.

  • Glowing eyes

    Use the Solid Eye with the Raiden A mask to make Snake's eyes glow.

  • Posing as statues

    In Act 1, go to the place with the two broken statues. Press Triangle to climb up on the empty statue pedestal in that area. Press Triangle again, and Snake will assume a statue position, and the OctoCamo will blend in. Keep pressing Triangle, and Snake will grab the crotch of the statue next to him and eventually break off that part of the statue.

  • Altair costume posture

    When wearing the Altair costume after unlocking it, there are some changes Snake will make to his posture. First, he stands with his hands by his sides and outstretched just like Altair, as opposed to hanging down in front of him with his fists clenched. This change will only occur when you do not have a weapon equipped. Second, where Altair had the ring finger on his left hand missing, Snake bends his up to give a similar visual effect. He will even keep his finger bent during intermission sequences in which the costume you are currently wearing appears.

  • Beauty And The Beast preview

    In Act 1, when in the underground hanger/cave, you can use the Mk II to listen to a wounded PMC soldier's conversation. He will talk about the Beauty And The Beast group before you actually meet them.

  • Posing Beauties

    When fighting any of the Beauties, successfully complete the first Boss phase (Beast form). After that they will come out of their protective suit and try to grapple you. If you run around long enough and prolong the time (usually about five to ten minutes), the screen will fade, and you will enter a white area all alone with the Beauty. Note: A timer will appear at the top of the screen. She will attempt to grapple again. Simply equip the camera, aim it at her, and she will pose for you. Click the camera on and off to get various poses. Eventually the timer will run out (3:00), and the Beauty will die. This works well when you want a new background for your PlayStation 3 because the game allows you to take in-game photos and send them to your homepage.

    Play the "Oishii ChuhanSeikatsu" Japanese pop song on your iPod while fighting a Beauty. She will start dancing. If you aim a camera at her, she will pose.

  • Beauties straddle Snake

    During any of the Beauties battles, lie down, and they will straddle Snake, then he will knock them off.

  • Beauty And The Beast magazine models

    You can buy a magazine with pictures of the models that the Beauty And The Beast unit were based on from Drebin.

  • Japanese models on TV

    Flick the TV remote with the Mk II to get Japanese models to appear on the television.

  • Barely dressed women

    Flick the remote for the screen Campbell talks to you on with the Mk II to see pictures of ladies in their underwear.

  • Naomi's cleavage

    When Naomi is in the Nomad and on the computer talking, use the Mk II to look at Otacon's computer. His webcam is focused on Naomi's cleavage.

  • Alternate Rose's shirt

    During the third playthrough of the game, when you first meet Rose she will be wearing a new shirt.

  • Shake Rose's breasts

    When you speak with Rose on the Codec, shake the Sixaxis to make her breasts move.

  • Reading Playboy magazine

    To look through the Playboy magazine, press R1, then go into first person view. Then, hold L1 and press Circle to go through the pages. If the game puts you in third person view, press Triangle to enter first person view to see the models.

  • Akina Minami posters

    There are two posters of Akina Minami in the Vista mansion. Look at them in first person view, and Snake will say her name and his Psyche gauge will increase.

  • Clearing areas

    When you are in the basement lab at Shadow Moses and the Gecko appears, send the Mk II to the electric console to the right of the elevator. Note: This is the same console that was destroyed with the rocket in the original Metal Gear Solid. Use the Mk II to reactivate the electric floor and destroy the Gecko.

  • Defeating Vamp

    In the first part of the battle against Vamp, after you get his health low enough, he will fall down. As he gets up, grab him in a CQC hold, and inject him with the syringe that you obtained earlier. This will disable his Nanites and make him mortal.

    You do not have to deplete Vamp's health before CQC grabbing him. Hide and sneak up behind him for a CQC.

    Instead of depleting his life, use a tranquilizer gun and shoot his head. He will fall down, immediately giving you the chance for the CQC.

  • Rats

    Crawl around the vents in Shadow Moses to encounter Rats. When they see Snake, "!" will appear above their heads, accompanied with a sound. They will run away. Keep chasing them, and they will repeat the "!" alert. Following the rats is a good way to get in. If you call Otacon after you see the rats, Snake will talk about them and how they helped him before.

  • Long game advisory

    If you complete a chapter after 4 a.m., a message will come up during the install screen (Snake smoking), suggesting that you get up and do some stretches, and saying that you have been playing awhile.

  • Mystery man

    When tailing a resistance member, if you look behind Snake, you will occasionally notice a man with a hat and trenchcoat also tailing him. This is how the Scarabs found the hideout. If you try to shoot him, he will duck away around the corner and disappear.

  • Feminine guile comments

  • Otacon comments

    Try to access any feature that requires Internet connectivity while not connected. A chat menu featuring Otacon will appear, and he will try to give you technical support.

  • Message from Liquid

    In Act 5, if you die and wait an extended period to select "Continue" or "Exit", you will hear Liquid say "It's not over yet, brother!", and the "Exit" button will change to read "Exist". Using it will move your selection over to "Continue", but then you will have the option to exit again.

  • After death messages

    After dying, call Rose to hear a conversation about Snake having dreams of being killed or a comment from Snake saying that he feels like he has died once before.

  • Controlling briefing projector

    During the Act 5 mission briefing, use the Left Analog-stick to change the projection's height on the screen. This will make some of the attendees angry.

  • Trailing wolves

    Tranq Crying Wolf, and the wolves in that area will follow you.

  • Attacking wolves

    In Act 4, kill one of the wolves after you defeat Crying Wolf. The others will attack you. Call Otacon, and he will wince. Call Rose, and she will tell you that animal cruelty is the first sign of criminal behavior, and says that she will have you psychologically assessed if you continue to kill them.

  • FROG soldier reaction to searches

    Hold up a FROG soldier, and body search them. When you would normally ball crush a male prisoner, they will say "You men are all the same", "You're disgusting!", or "Ugh" and kick you.

    When you search a FROG soldier when they have no items, she will giggle as if ticklish.

    When you search a FROG soldier and touch her chest, sometime she will moan or say "You're pretty good at this".

  • Militia soldier execution

    Sneak through the first part after the opening, and go through the buildings. At the building to the right of where the APC shows up, crawl under the rubble. You will see a militia soldier get brutally shot after pleading for his life.

    Follow the resistance member in Act 3 to see him urinating in the fountain in the small park.

    In the central park during Act 3, there is a statue that Snake can interact and imitate. Stay in that pose until a resistance member appears, and he will urinate on you.

  • Boktai: The Sun Is In Your Hands reference

    There is a gun called the "Stun Gun" which is actually a reference to one of Hideo Kojima's older games, Boktai: The Sun Is In Your Hands for the Game Boy Advance. This is confirmed when Solid Snake raises the gun towards the sun to recharge and yells out "Sunlight", much like the main character did in Boktai.

  • Hideo Kojima references

    After defeating Screaming Mantis and immediately after Psycho Mantis vibrates your controller, keep pressing X to see Hideo Kojima.

    If you prolong the Psycho Mantis fight long enough, the game will show the opening screen, except the word "Kojima" will replace "Konami". The game will then resume the Psycho Mantis fight.

    Press L1 to examine the .50 Cal Anti-Material Sniper Rifle to see "Recommended by Hideo Kojima."

    When Snake hides from the two Irvings next to the box of watermelons, the box reads "No Place For Hideo."

    You can see a ghost image of Hideo Kojima in Otacon's lab using the camera. It is between Policenauts and the poster that from a distance reads "Final Fantasy VI".

    On the computer, the term "Video 2" is called "Hideo 2".

    You fight Crying Wolf in the same area you fought Sniper Wolf.

    You can find the Hind D still in the Snowfield where you fight Crying Wolf.

    During the Mantis fight, switch your controller ports when your television switches to "Hideo 2". Otacon will come on the Codec and notify you that the trick does not work twice. You will also get a suggestion about destroying the bust.

    When you die in Act 4, the "Game Over" music from the first Metal Gear Solid will play.

    After you die during the final Boss battle and select "Exit", it quickly changes to "Exist". Liquid Ocelot says "Not yet Snake, it's not over yet" and it moves the pointer back to "Continue". This is a reference to a quote by Liquid in the original Metal Gear Solid.

  • Metal Gear Solid 2 reference

    Call Rosemary with a ration equipped to see a reference to a sequence that happened in Metal Gear Solid 2, when Raiden calls Snake on the Codec with a ration equipped and comments about Rose's cooking.

    Press L1 to view the description for the Mosin-Nagant. It mentions The End and his sniper duel with Big Boss.

  • Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes

    If you stare at Meryl's breasts, she will blush similarly to how she did in Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes.

  • Metal Gear Solid series references

    Look at the two puppets dangling from Screaming Mantis. The two puppets appear to be Psycho Mantis and The Sorrow from previous Metal Gear Solid games.

    When Snake and Naomi talk about war changing and how it used to be "just a game", all of the Metal Gear Solid titles appear in an indexed list. After MGS4, there are a few boxes titled "In Production."

    When you first enter Big Mama's hideout and the guards start talking about Snake, press L1 to see posters from Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, and Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops.

    In the Nomad briefing missions, take control of the Mk II, and go to the right of the helicopter. There are three separately caged chickens, each with its own label: "Solid", "Liquid", and "Solidus". This is a reference to the three Big Boss clones. A further reference to those chickens happens at the very beginning of Act 1 when Sunny is cooking eggs. She says "Only two eggs? Solidus must've taken the day off."

    The rubber duck in the upper gantry of the Nomad can also be found in Capture The Flag mode in Metal Gear Online; in the GA-KO camouflage in Metal Gear Solid 3; and floating in the flooded Shell Core in Metal Gear Solid 2.

    When you are in the final showdown with Liquid, when it enters the third stage of the fight, Liquid will do Ocelot's signature hand gesture.

    In the Act 2 briefing, there is a PlayStation 3 on the table.

    After you defeat Crying Wolf in Act 4, Otacon will call you as you enter that building and tell you to change discs. He then catches himself and starts talking about Blu-Ray and the PlayStation 3.

    When you send out the Mk 2, look over Snake's shoulder by tilting the camera. He is using a PlayStation 3 controller to control it.

    Use the Codec to call Rose during the fight with Screaming Mantis. Campbell will tell you to switch controller ports. Rose will get angry and say there are not any controller ports because this is on a PlayStation 3.

    If you use a Sixaxis controller against Psycho Mantis he says, "What? No vibration!" and the flashbacks show the Sixaxis.

  • PSP reference

    During the Act 2 briefing, Sunny is playing a PSP. The game is Penguin Adventure, a 1986 title for the MSX computer system, which was Hideo Kojima's first game.
