When I first got the Raikov mask and put it on, both eyes on the mask were open. When I used it later during the Volgin fight one eye on the mask was closed. I thought it was weird until I realized that, by the time of the Volgin fight, Big Boss had lost an eye. So the eye on the mask closes after Big Boss loses his eye. I never noticed that before when I played it on the PS2 back in the day and it tripped me out when I realized why it was like that.
Don't listen to min-maxers. Min-maxers do not want you to have fun. They want you to do math.
