  • Infinite ammo

    Successfully complete the game without submitting to Ocelot when being tortured to save Meryl. Then at the end of the game you will receive a bandana. Save your game, then start a new game using the same saved game. Now when you equip the bandana you can use an unlimited amount of ammo and will not have to reload your gun.

  • Stealth camouflage

    Successfully complete the game with submitting to Ocelot when being tortured to not save Meryl. Then at the end of the game you will receive stealth camouflage. Save your game, then start a new game using the same saved game. Now when you equip the stealth camouflage enemies (except bosses) and cameras will not detect you.

  • Camera

In the room are security card level 4 and 6 doors. The camera is in the room behind the security card level 4 door. Alternatively, beat the game with submitting to Ocelot when being tortured. After you receive the camera there will be an "Album" option on the main menu, use this option to view pictures that have been taken.

  • New textures

    Successfully complete the game two times using the same saved game file, and getting a different ending both times by getting the bandana and stealth camouflage. Then during the next (third) time the game is played, reach Ninja without using the bandana or stealth camouflage. If done correctly, Ninja will be red. There will now be new textures for Snake and Ninja and new bonus music during the ending.
