Introduction ================ (Intro-0001) Hi there! Thank you for choosing my guide for Metal Gear for the MSX. However, this guide has been written for the Playstation 2 and 3 versions for the MGS3 Subsistence and Legacy Collection release. All you need to do is place in the second disk of the MGS3 Sub release, or the 2nd Disc from Legacy and load up Metal Gear Solid 3. From there, go to the menu and select Metal Gear. If you - reached this guide and are playing on an actual MSX (or other means...) do not worry, as this guide will also help you through the game. So honestly, this g -uide itself is not bias on which platform you're playing on (MSX, PS2, PS3!) Now with that said... Metal Gear, which was originally released in Japan and Europe on the MSX Home Computer is the beginning of a legacy created by none other: Hideo Kojima. It was during the development of this title, that it was going to be a typical - run and gun shooter, however due to the MSX Hardware limitations, the game was instead turned into what we know of Metal Gear to do this day. The concept of the game is to sneak around enemy forces, while trying to avoid combat. It is the first that places in stealth, strategy and tactics to get by. The game's - core concept and message is an Anti-Nuclear Weapons theme. You play a rookie FOX-HOUND Operative named Solid Snake, who has been tasked - with the mission: to infilrate an enemy nation fortress known as OUTER HEAVEN. Which is located at 200 kilometers North of Galzburg, South Africa. His mission is to find and locate a missing FOX-HOUND Operative, code named: Gray Fox, who went missing while uttering the last words of over the Raido TRANSCEIVER: "...Metal...Gear..." What exactly is Metal Gear?... The code name itself describes a military based weapon, armed to the teeth in serious fire power. It is a walking mobile battl -e tank, able to operative with little, to no support and has the ability to - launch Nuclear Weapons from any terrian from any part of the world. It is here in this game, as I mentioned before, you will utilize stealth, strategy and of course tactics, while utilizing a vast amount of weapons and equipment, that you will find as you progress through the title. You will have to hide from and sneak around enemy soldiers, surveillance cameras, laser sensoring equipment - and traps. You are also given task to resue Cvilian Hostages and P.O.W.'s in t -he enemy nation fortress. Welcome to the OUTER HEAVEN UPRISING, a force that threatens the entire world. ================ 8. Characters ================ (CHAR-00A0) FOX-HOUND ---- Big Boss: Your commanding Officer and leader of Special Forces Unit FOX-HOUND. Gives certain tips to Solid Snake in TRANSCIEVER. Gray Fox: The only member in FOX-HOUND to recieve the code name: FOX. A close friend to Solid Snake, he is captured by the forces of OUTER HEAVEN. Solid Snake: The main protagonist of the game. An excellent Soldier, but is considered a Rookie in FOX-HOUND. A master of Sealth, Weapons and CQC. RESISTANCE OF OUTER HEAVEN ---- Kyle Schneider - Resistance Movement Leader. Helps Snake find certain items. via. TRANSCIEVER. Diane - Former vocalist for the Punk Rock band Thin Wall. She helps Snake via TRANSCIEVER with Outer Heaven's layout, traps, weapon defense systems and game Bosses. Most of time answered by her brother Steve, if she is busy (excuses.) Jennifer - Resistance member, just like Diane. She infiltrated OUTER HEAVEN taking the guise of a Nurse. Help's Solid Snake by giving him info on weapons and equipment. (Note: She will not talk to you until you are ranked a 4th Star.) Civillian Hostages ---- Dr. Drago Pettrovich Madnar - A Russian Robotics Engineer, captured by the forces of OUTER HEAVEN. Forced to create the TX-55 Metal Gear unit. Ellen Madnar - The daughter of Dr. Madnar and former ballete Dancer. Used as leverage to force her father to work on the TX-55 unit. OUTER HEAVEN ---- Enemy Soldier Ambush - An Ambush that lays in wait for Snake in a room in the Enemy Nation Fortress. Shotmaker/Shotgunner - A former Spetsnaz Operative; Defected from the Soviet Union to join OUTER HEAVEN. Prison wardern and watcher of Gray Fox. Machinegun Kid - A former SAS Operative turned Merc, joins OUTER HEAVEN. He - specializes in Machine Gun tactics and guards the Parachute.

Tank - A tank equipped with two machine gun turrents and of course it's Main Cannon Bulldozer - This machine is simply used to smash our hero against the wall and end his mission. Metal Gear TX-55 - Created as a method of deterrance for Outer Heaven and to protect them from other Nations. Heavily armed with state - of the art Armaments, Machine Guns, Lasers, and Missiles. Also has the ability to fire off two Nuclear Weapons in the world on any terrian as it is a Mobile tank, unlike regular Tanks, it walks up right. The major threat in the game. ================ 9. How to Play ================ (PLAY-00A1) As mentioned above, Metal Gear isn't a normal war based game. It is a stealth game, where you control a FOX-HOUND Operative. The goal is to sneak by enemies unseen, while collecting weapons and equipment to better your odds of survival in the Enemy Nation Fortress: OUTER HEAVEN. However, sometimes stealth is not the answer if you feel like you're going to get caught. Here in this section, you will be shown the basics of how to play the game itself. Choosing the righ -t tactics is up to the player. _______________ i. Mechanics - As Solid Snake, you're going to want to understand the world _______________ and rules of Metal Gear. First and for most is taking control of Snake himself. The game itself as I write this, is being played on the Sony Playstation 3, using Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection. This is also for Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence. The HD Collection does not have the 2nd disc for MGS3. Here you will find the control layout for both MSX and PS2/PS3 use. PS2/PS3 ---- Sqauare: Fire a Weapon L1: N/A L2: Opens Equipment Menu X: Punch Circle: Punch R1: N/A R2: Opens Weapon Menu Triangle: N/A Select: Radio/Transciever Start: Pauses game, opens up menu screen Left Stick: Moves Player Right Stick: N/A D-Pad: Moves Player L3: N/A R3: N/A MSX ---- ^ | <- -> (Aorrow keypad: Moves Player, or make use of a Joystick or controller | with a D-Pad. v N on keyboard or B on controller: Punch Space Bar or A Button on controller: Fire Weapon F1: Pause or Unpause F4: Radio/Transciever F2: Opens Weapon Menu F5: Will save game if paused F3: Opens Equipment Menu F4: Will load game if paused NOTE ABOUT SAVING ON THE MSX: You will need a cassette player connected to the the MSX in order to save/load data. (I don't own a MSX so I assume you need a special cassette tape.) STEALTH --- The most important part of this game. Unlike the typical Run and Gun shooters that we have seen on some of the older consoles of the 80s/early 90s. Metal Ge -ar rewards the player with stealth game play. Basically, you move around an - enemy unseen. Enemies have a Line of Sight mechanic in the game which will be explained more later in this section. You will want to make use of walls, crates, vehicles, and shadow areas as well as the famous Cardboard Box to move unseen by the enemy. Shadowy areas can be seen in the game as more darker palletes on the map and guards cannot see you in these areas as long as you are not directly infront of them and remain stil -l. CQC ---- This stands for Close-Quarter-Combat. Naturally due to FOX-HOUND procedure, - Snake will have no weapons and will only have a pack of cigarettes and a pair of Bionoculars. Without any weapons, you are given the ability to punch a Sold -ier. Punching a Soldier has two effects. One Punch or Two, will stun an enemy in pl -ace, giving you enough time to move to a safe stealthed position. Walking thr -ough an Enemy Guard will not damage you, if they stunned. Neutralize/Killing a Guard requires 3-4 Punches and removes them from the map until you leave the screen. WEAPONS ---- Certain weapons in this game can be equipped with a Silencer to remove muzzle flash and silence the weapon. There are only two weapons in the game that make use of the SILENCER (which is found after a certain boss fight), which are the HANDGUN and SUBMACHINE GUN. Other weapons such as Grenades, R.C. Missles, and Mines, and Plastic Explosives and the Rocket Launcher make noise. Mines are Placement weapons: which only trigger when an enemy steps on them. Plastic Explosives are also Placement weapons: which only explode after a cert -ainly small period of time, which have a huge blast radius, so moving away is key. EQUIPEMENT ---- Equipment is what you will find when exploring Outer Heaven and spoken about by certain Hostages/P.O.W's or by certain TRANSCIEVER Conversations. An exampl -e of this are Key Cards which are required to open certain doors. You will - also have acceess to certain items that refill your health, negate damage and or use to progress to get further in the game. RANK ---- Rank increases after you save a certain amount of P.O.W's (Hostages) and goes from 1 to 4. Four being the highest. As you increase in rank your health pool goes up, as well as your ability to carry more ammo and rations. However, if you accidently shoot a prisoner, your rank will go down and can not be returne -d. So basically, save carefully and reload your save if this happens. You MUST be Four Stars in order to finish the game. _________________ ii. Enemy Guide - You will encounter many enemies in the game. Most you can _________________ avoid, others you cannot. If you are discovered by an enemy the game will go into Alert Mode. Alert Mode is triggered when an enemy soldie -r spots Solid Snake. There are two types of Alerts. "!" means that only the enemy on screen is gunning for you. While "!!" means that they called in for - reinforcements. Also if an "!" is activated, if you move off screen, the Alert will automatically cancel, while a "!!" means you need to defend yourself or get to certain areas that Alert's are dismissed. N Enemies also have a certain Line of Sight (LoS) they use in Metal Gear. ^ They are able to see North, South, East and West in a direct line. So as | long as you are not in their LoS, or make use of Shadow Areas or the - <- -> famous Cardboard Box, you should be fine. | V There other things you need to be noted of while playing. Enemy Soldier's are not the only thing you need to worry about. Surveillance Camera's: These are mounted wall cameras that move from left to right or vise versa and only have 1 LoS. To pass them unnoticed, make use of the Cardboard Box. Please make notice, that if a Camera spots you it will be a "!!" type of alert, as an alarm sound will go off and the areas with them will be flooded with Enemy Soldiers. Laser Sensors: Some areas will have Laser Senoring Beams and will require eith -er. the use of INFRARED GOGGLES, Cigarettes, or memorizing their layout and pattern. Some beams are stationed and won't move, while later, beams will have a certain pattern and will move around, which you will have to by pass. You - can easily tell that you are in an area with these beams, by looking at the electronic boxes with a red dot in the middle of them. Laser Cameras: You won't deal with these until you reach the last area of the game. They will not trigger an Alert, but will shoot a powerful lazer at you - in which you need to avoid. PITFALLS/PIT TRAPS - These will cost an instant death. You won't see much of -- these unless you're on a higher floor, or an area that has them. Pit Traps - will open automatically around you, quickly move out of their way before being consumed by the blackness that is a pit fall. (sorry I couldn't resist!) Enemy Soldier Patrols ---- Each Guard you come across will have a level set (by how many Bullets it takes to kill them.) This is based on their color. I will also use the Ranking system found in later Metal Gear titles to give later players a better understanding of how this works. (I stumbled upon this by accident after learning some of the guards take more bullet hits than others in direct combat, in order to take -- them down. Grey: Level 1 (E) Brown: Level 2 (C) Red: Level 3 (B) Green: Level 4 (A) Blue: Level 5 (S) BOSSES ---- Certain floors/areas have Bosses. These are slightly harder than normal enemy Soldiers and require a certain tactic (such as a certain weapon) to defeat the -m. You can either contact Diane via TRANSCIEVER or use this guide to help --- gain an advantage. ================ 10. Walkthrough ================ (MGSMSXWALK-0000) And so it begins! ============= Chapter 1: Operation Intrude N313 ============= (MGMSXWALK-0001) __________________________________ Building #1: Main Floor (Area 1) ================================== As soon as the game starts, Solid Snake will swim to his targeted objective in order to in to the military fortress known as Outer Heaven. He will recieve a TRANSCIEVER call from Big Boss, who will explain the mission objectives. You - find that Gray Fox, another member of the same unit as Snake (FOX-HOUND), was taken hostage earlier. You have two mission objectives: 1. Rescue Grey Fox 2. Destroy Metal Gear TX-55 TIP: To keep in constant Contact with Big Boss, either use the TRANSCIEVER Frequency 120.85 (for Building #1) or if playing on the MGS3 release of MGS3: Sub, the HD/Legacy Collection, the select button on your DS3 (DS2) to open the TRANSCIEVER and press down on the D-pad to access previously used frequencies (of characters only) You will now infiltrate the fortress. You probably noticed that on your Equipm -ment and Weapon Screens: Snake will only came with a pack of cigarettes and - no weapons. Do not worry, as FOX-HOUND Operatives are specialized in P-O-S or Procure-on-site only and to leave no traces of their existence, period. You as Snake, are a ghost and stealth is crucial for this operation, and will need to make full use of it in order complete the mission. So as of right now, as mentioned above: You have no weapons. Lucky for you, - Snake knows CQC (Close-Quarters Combat!) You'll be outside of the fortress wit -h Tanks in front of it. Head inside and you will recieve a TRANSCIVER call -- from Big Boss who explains that your mission is Inflitration and stealth, you are not to be discovered by any enemy soldiers. (I just said that... It's like it knows...) You will be in a room with three tanks and come crates that you can use to hide behind. Make your way North to the next screen. Here you will encounter your first set of enemy soldiers on patrol. Pay strict attention to their movements and which way their head is pointed in order to bypass/take th -em out. For now, you will want to head East to the next screen. On this screen you will see three Cargo Trucks; the firstt truck, on the left, is holding some Rations, which are used to recover lost health if you are in a jam. Go inside and obtain a total of three (3) by leaving the truck and going back inside. NOTE: You can only carry a certain amount of Rations and Munitions due to the STAR RANKING SYSTEM. Now that we're done collecting Rations, leave the truck and hide on the left - of it and wait. After a moment an enemy soldier will come out of the middle tr -uck and begin his patrol route. Watch his movements carefully. Once you are in a clear position to move in, head in to the truck he just came out of, it is inside that you will acquire **CARD 1** Now quickly leave before the soldie -r returns. The third truck, if the coast is clear, you will find inside a ver -y handy piece of equipment **BIONOCULARS* which you can use to scout ahead in order to see what you are getting yourself into. NOTE: Use the BIONOCULARS to recon enemy placements and to see if there are Cameras and Infrared Sensors! Using them will pause the game world while you are observing. However it will not show enemy patrol routes. TIP: You should notice there are darker patch tiles in this game. These act as a means to conceal Snake in the sahdows, maker it harder for enemies to - spot you. Now head back West to return to the previous area. Upon re-entering the screen you will notice the guards have changed their positions and patrol routes. You will want to mental note this, as this is common through out the game. Bypass or take them out as needed and make your way South (back to where Snake made - his entrance inside of Buidling #1). Here is a good spot to make use of the BIONOCULARS and point them East with the D-Pad. You will see on this screen th -at there are two Guards on patrol surrounded by two parked tanks. Next, make your way East and watch their routes and movements carefully. Bypass/take them out as needed and continue East to the next screen. Here you will find a door. NOTE: Card levels go from 1 - 8. A locked door requires a certain Card Level to enter. Be mindful of this and memorize what you can, as it can, at most times: save your life. Use **CARD #1** to enter the door here, you will find a guard who will decide to fall in to sleep. (ZZZ's will appear of his head in a thought buble!) Use this time to your advantage and acquire the **GAS MASK**, which we will need soon. Leave the room and make your way back West Two times, then head back North to the room where we encounted are first section of guards. You will wan -t to Bypass/take them out as needed and continue heading North to the next - screen where you will see two more sentries. Again, pay strict attention to th -eir routes/movement patterns and Bypass/Take them out as needed. Head North again to be in front of a room with an Elevator in the back, guarded by two (2) Red Guards. Ignore them for now and make your way East. On this next screen you will come across three (3) trucks. The first one will have a **HANDGUN** inside, which we will now be equipped (but no ammo) to at least put up a fight, if need be. TIP: At this current state, do not fire your Handgun in an open area with enemy patrols, the flash and sound will force the enemy into Alert Mode. This is because we do not have a Silencer yet. Leave the truck and hide on the left of it. as the other two trucks will have enemy soldiers come out to do patrols. The first guard that pops out will rath -er quickly go back inside the truck, while the far right one will have an act -ual patrol route. Ignore the middle truck and head inside the far right one (3rd) truck. Inside you will find **MINE**, Don't worry about the Guard return -ing inside. Make your way out, avoid the middle truck as you will be ambushed by three (3) guards on the inside. Return to the previous screen (West) to be in the room with the Elevator that is being protected by two (2) guards. Hide and wait for their SHFIT CHANGE, which will make them leave their spot and pat -rol to the Eastern screen. Quickly and useeningly enter the Elevator. TIP: Use the inside Elevator areas for times to save your game progress! NOTE: There are two Elevators located in Building #1, this one takes us to the Third (3nd) Floor. The screen will change to a more Side scrolling position. Head in to the Eleva -tor and press up on the D-Pad or the proper MSX key to ascend to the Third -- (3nd) Floor. AUTHOR NOTE: 1/8/2019 - Rewrite. __________________________________ Building #1: Third Floor (Area 2) ================================== Leave the Elevator shaft to the next screen. In this room, you will notice tha -t there are two Surveillance Cameras. For now, ignore heading East. As we do not have the proper key card clearance for that section (to enter the rooms in that area yet...) For now, you will want to make your way South without being discovered by the Cameras. Watch their movements. You should notice there are two ways to go South. That option is up to you, as long as you can avoid from being detected from the security systems. On the South screen, you will see two enemy soldiers on patrol. On the Eastern wall, you will see a closed door and another one just opened. The closed door you will want to ignore for now, due to lacking proper security clearance. So head to the opended doorway and go inside to find a Munitions Crate. Just try to remember enemy soldiers positionings in this section before entering and use it to your advantage as Solid Snake, to bypass/take them out as needed. NOTE: Munitions Crates fill up Ammo for the Handgun, SMG, Grenade Launcher and the Rocket Launcher only. Keep entering this room to max out your Handgun to 50 bullets. We cannot carry anymore than that due to your STAR/CLASS RANK. TIP: In order to increase your Star/Class Rank you must rescue 5 Hostages/P.O.W's to increase your rank level. When you reach a new level (1 to 4) your Health and overall Ration/Ammo carry will increase. Return to the room with the Ammo Crate inside, head to the western door and ma -ke use of CARD #1 to open it. Head inside to find your first Hostage/P.O.W. - walk up to him to untie him to recue him. NOTE: Whatever you do under any circumstances ABSOLUTELY DO NOT SHOOT the Hostages/P.O.W's. If you do, your rank will go down. This will be very important for later and I will explain it when the time comes. Next, use CARD #1 to open the door on the Eastern wall. Open it, but do not - step inside. Go into the Equipment Menu and put on the GAS MASK. If you do not have the Gas Mask, contact Schneider at TRANSCIVER FREQUENCY: 120.79 and back track on this walkthrough to find it, if you haven't thus far. Kyle Schneider so happens to be the Resistance Leader against OUTER HEAVEN. Make your way - through the gas chamber to the next door, located on the far Western wall; use CARD #1 to to open the door, but quickly equip your Gas Mask again so you will not take some damage before leaving (you will take slight damage as you open - the door though before you try to requip it.) On this next screen you will want to stay in the shadows (the dark tiles on - the floor) and take notice to the lone patrol and single Surveillance Camera. The first upper door on the Western wall we do not have clearance for yet. The second (2nd) door on the bottom of the Western wall will require CARD #1. In - here you will find a second Hostage/P.O.W. to rescue, who will have some info on the missing FOXHOUND Operative: Grey Fox and explains that he got captured by enemy forces. At least we still know he's alive; leave the room and watch out of security surveillance and patrol routes. Make your way East, here you w -ill see an opened door with a soldier (who cannot see you) on the other side. Head inside this room to find one of your first trap obstacle. The Roller here will move from left to right. If you are caught by it, you will crushed to dea -th and grants you an automatic Game Over. On the left side on this room, you will find a **PLASTIC EXPLOSIVE** (I recomend picking it up as we will need it for later.) You can only carry 5 Plastic Explosives and Mines for now. Next - you will want to go to the open doorway on the Eastern side of this room, all while you avoid the Roller. On the next screen, avoid the enemy solider, with bypassing/taking them out if needed. Slip by and continue heading East to the next screen. Here you will see two new patrols. Do whatever means to bypass/take them out. Then advance to the next screen (i.e go East.) On the next screen, you will see a lone guard and another two Surveillance Cameras. The first door you - see on the Eastern wall we cannot access yet. Instead, make your way towards the bottom eastern door with CARD #1 and open the door, enter this room to fin -d **CARD #2**. Leave the room, again bypass the security systems and the lone soldier and head in to the upper North Western door and use CARD #2, inside to find Ration(s). Replenish your health and stock if need be. Now leave this room and make your way East. Here you will recieve a TRANSCIEVE -R call from Big Boss. He will tell you (and if you noticed) the floor is elec -trified and in order to by pass it we will need an R.C. Missile (Remot Contro -lled Missle) to shoot the panel in order to disarm the floor. We cannot make any progress further. Contact Kyle Schneider and he will tell you that the -- weapon needed is in the South-West of this floor. Back track to the room with the two guards on patrol and slip by them and retu -rn to the room with Roller (where we previously found the PALSTIC EXPLOSIVE) and leave by entering the Western doorway. Here, head back West to the area wi -th a lone soldier and a single Surveillance Camera. On the upper Northen West door, use CARD #2 to enter the room to find the R.C. Missile. You can only car -ry 5 in total (for now.) Next: make your way back to the room with the electr -ified floor. Equip the R.C. Missile launcher and look to see where the Panel is. It should look obvious as it has a red switch on it. which is located on the Northern Western wall. TIP: R.C. Missiles, upon fired can be controlled with your D-Pad or the assigned MSX keys/controller. Fire it and take out the panel to turn off the floor then make your way the No -rth screen. Here you will see two soldiers on patrol and two hallways. On the Eastern hallway you will see a door that will require CARD #1 to enter. Inside will be a Hostage/P.O.W. upon his rescue, he will tell you information on anot -her Resistance member named Diane and she can be contacted on TRANSCIEVER -- Frequency: 120.33. If you contact her right away, a man named Steve will pick up the radio call and explains she went out shopping. Next, you will want to return to the previous screen make your way North while slipping pass the enemy. On this screen you will find an Elevator being protected by two guards. Ignore the Elevator for now (or use it if you want to play it safe and save your game at this time. Either way is good.) Head East, to find yourself in a room with Level 3 (B) Guards/Soldiers. The North Eastern Door here will require Card #2 and inside you will find the Legendary **CARDBOARD BOX**. The Western Door, is where we need to go and requires CARD #2 to enter. Once on the next screen, this room will be patrolled by lesser Soldiers. Use Card #2 to enter the center room (warehouse) and inside you will fight... ============================================================================== Boss: The Abmushers How did they know we were coming? There has to be a leak some where... Anyways these are just normal Level 2 (C) Guards. Just take cover and dispose of them with your HANDGUN, once they are all defeated, one of them will drop a very special item known as the **SUPPRESSOR** NOTE: if you need any extra help Diane is willing to give you some tips. ============================================================================== TIP: The Supressor is an attachment that is fitted to your Handgun and SMG (in which we will pick up a bit later.) This prevents muzzle flash and sound so you can take out soldiers quickly if needed without having to worry about the two Alert Phases. The Eastern door requires Card #1 and inside you will find a new weapon called the **GRENADE LAUNCHER**. Now leave these two rooms and get back in to the ma- -in area. You can use this time to head East to go back to the Elevator which we started from and use the previous floors to stock back upon Rations. Also, a good time to save would be here. Make your way back up to Floor 3 (if you wanted to restock on Rations) if not, make your way back East to the other Ele -vator. Inside here, this will not only take you back to the 3rd Floor, but yo -u can also gain access to Floor 2, Roof, Ground Floor. and the Basement. Head down to the Ground Floor (1st) Floor. ================================== Building #1: Ground Floor (Area 3) ================================== Outside the Eleavor, you will be on the Ground Floor. You will find yourself - in a room with three unoperated Tanks and two enemy soldiers on patrol. Make use of the Cardboard Box here and bypass/take them out as you head South to - the next screen. Here you will see three Surveillance Cameras, so make use of the Cardboard Box again. The door on the Western wall (left wall) will require CARD #2 to open. Inside you will find a Hostage/P.O.W with holds more info on Grey Fox. Apparently, he is being held in a top secret cell. Leave this room and head South again to be in a room with two soliders on patrol. The right (Eastern) door which requires CARD #2 holds the **SUBMACHINE GUN** (SMG) while the other door (western/left) requires CARD #1, which inside will hold another Hostage/P.O.W. Who tells you that the only way to get close to Grey Fox's secr -et shell is to get caught by the Enemy. You should also be CLASS/STAR RANK 2 now, which comes with a Health pool increase and Ration/Ammo increase. Next you will want to continue SOut to the next screen, here you will see two more enemy soldiers on patrol. By pass them, then head West to a dead end, mov -e towards it and enemy soldiers will sneak up on and sorround the rookie Soli -d Snake and capture him... We are now in a cell, use this time to save and to start... ============= Chapter 2: Capture/Escape! ============= (MGMSXWALK-0002) __________________________________ Building #1: Basement #1 (Area 4) ================================== Solid Snake will find himself in a basement cell and the TRANSCIEVER will beep so that he can establish audio contact with Big Boss, who states that the infi -ltration was a success. Snake's next objective: is to find the hidden cell - that is holding Grey Fox. But, how are we going to do that? Well Big Boss says to check the walls. To find the FOXHOUND Operative: Grey Fox is one thing, but escaping is a completely different ask all together. Check the Western walls and punch them. You'll notice one sound, when you punch it, but when you keep puching around the wall you'll eventually hear a noise a "?" thought bubble wi -ll appear over Snake's head, keep punching that wall until it opens. Head in to the next room to find Grey Fox, and untie him. He will have information on the Metal Gear. It turns out: that the Metal Gear TX-55 unit is a mobile-walking battle tank armored to the core armed with to the teeth with weapons. It can be handled - solo or with little back up support. But that isn't what makes it the most dangerous warmachine of all time, it's capable to launching two Nuclear Missil -es, from any terrian on any part of the world. We also will need to find a - Civillian Hostage named Dr. Drago Pettrovich Madnar, who is being held inside Building #1 some where. Not only is he the developer of the Metal Gear TX-55 but is being forced to work on it for unknown reasons. Only he knows how to destroy the Metal Gear unit. After the conversation, you will want to check the southern wall by punching it until you see another "?" thought bubble appear over Snake's head. Keep pun -ching the wall until it reveals an entrance. Now if you goto your Equipment - and Weapon Menu, you will notice we lost all our tools. We can't finish the mission like this. Leave the cell by going South. Now that we are outside, you will want to go East to the next screen. ============================================================================== BOSS: Shotmaker Alright, so this the second boss fight in the game. Quickly make your way across to the west where some crates are and hide behind them. We have no weapons to directly fight him, but we're in luck. You should seen two doors on the eastern wall. The left door we cannot open (yet) and the door on the right is openable by punching it. Head inside before you take any damage, in here you will find all your WEAPONS/EQUIPMENT that you collected thus far in a bag. Now return to the boss room and hide behind the crates. Reason being is that his shotgun blast cannot penatrate the crates, so he will not hurt you as long as you main in this position. But how do we kill him? You can contact Diane 120.33 and she will tell you, or you can just equipped the R.C. Missile Launcher. Four (4) shots (at a time) will kill him. And whatever you do, don't try to get close to him or it will be an early grave for Solid Snake! ______________ BOSS TACTICS ============== - He will role side to side in order to try to aim at you. - His Shot Gun blast look like a burst shot, and does serious damage. - He will halt all attack when you're taking cover - His Shotgun burst cannot go beyond the cates. ============================================================================== Simple fight, eh? Now quickly check your Equipment window and you see that a very odd item has been added your inventory called a **TRANSMITTER** Quickly get rid of it wit the X button on your PS3/assigned MSX key. NOTE: If you keep the Transmitter in your inventory, it will alert all enemies to your position. So getting rid of it now, will save your life. Now head over the Left door on the Southern wall that we could not open. Use CARD #2 on it. Inside you will find munitions and **CARD #3**! Use your new access clearance to open up the Eastern door in the previous room (where you fought Shotmaker). Go inside and now we'll be futher in the basement. But take notice that there are guard dogs patrolling the area. They will either come up and attack you, or if switch screens they will chase you. The only way to disp -ose of them is use your Handgun on them, as punching them won't do anything. We have a few items we need to collect here, so we're going to be here for a little bit. Head East to the next screen, passing a door we can't enter yet. On the next screen, take out the Guard Dog that comes at you, then punch the western wall until you see a "?" appear of Snake's head. Plant a Plastic Explo -sive here, which will reveal an entrance. Head inside to find Munitions and Plastic Explosives. Use this room to restock on Plastic Explosives before we leave the Basement. Head back west near the area we originally came out of, take out the Guard Dog here and make your way North to the next screen. Here punch the Western wall until you see a "?" over Snake's head, plant another Plastic Explosive here, that will reveal room. Head inside! NOTE: Do not stand directly on or by Plastic Explosives or you will recieve some serious damage from its blast (and blast radius) In this room you will find an **ENEMY UNIFORM**, which we will need for later. Leave the room and go back to the open door just South of you (again the door that led to where the Shotmaker was). Now you will notice there is a maze like structure in this basement. Punch the wall (infront of the open door) to see a "?" appear over Snake's head, plant another Plastic Explosive here. This will open a path in to the maze. Ignore going West, as it leads to a deadend. Go East instead to the next screen, and follow it around until you come to anothe -r dead end. Once you reach it, punch the left portion of the wall until you hear a noise and a "?" appears over Snake's head, do the same as last time to blast open a new entrance. Head down the new path and follow it around around until you see a spot that takes you East. Ignore it, and punch the lower wall just where the East room connects. You'll hear a noise and a "?" will appear yet again, do the same thing here to blast open a new entrance. Go in and head around it until you come to a door, here use CARD #3 to enter the room and be sure to pick up the **BOMB BLAST SUIT** which we will need abit later. We are done here, so follow the maze around and go back to the first wall we opened up before we opended up the maze to stock back up on Ammo and Plastic Explosiv -e's. The Elevator can be found to the North, once inside, use this time to - save your progress. Next we need to get on to the Roof top! __________________________________ Building #1: Roof (Area 5) ================================== NOTE: We're going to have to do some minor back tracking to the Roof. We are only here for now to restock up on some R.C. Missiles. Once here, Big Boss will contact you via TRANSCIEVER, instructing you to look for a Bomb Blast Suit due to a Wind Barrier that will prevent you from getting on the roof. So since we already have it, equip it in order to push through. Head west to the next screen to find some enemy soldiers. Bypass them/take the -m out, once clear head to the next western screen. Here will be a lone guard. Bypass/take him out if needed and use CARD #3 on the door here, inside you will find R.C. Missiles. Stock back up and return to the Elevator to the North and then head to the Second Floor. __________________________________ Building #1: Second Floor (Area 6) ================================== We have a few items we need to grab on this floor that are important. Equip the Cardboard Box while you slip pass the Surveillance Cameras until you reach the nexct screen. Here you will see three soliders. Our objective is the door on the Western wall which requires CARD #3 to enter. So bypass them/take them out if needed. Inside this roo, you will notice there are munitions and Plasti -c Explosives blocked off. They are easy to get to from the previous room, jus -t watch out for the Surveillance Camera. Anyways, head West to the next door that also requires CARD #3. Before heading inside, be aware there is a Roller here, so you'll have to be quick to get to the Southern Door. Once through, on the next screen you will see a lone Guard that we can easily bypass/take out. Do so. Head to the next screen and you will see more soldiers in the area. Get past them by any means and continue heading West. Here in the hall, you will see two enemy soliders on patrol. One door is locked and requir -e's CARD #3, inside will be a Hostage/P.O.W. Who says that the only way to ge -t into the Courtyard of Building #1 is to use a Parachute off the roof top. Leave the room, the door that is opened on western side, you will find some Mines. But becareful, there are sleeping guards in this room, so restock with caution. Now head South to a room where you'll see an unelecrified floor turne -d off. If you alert the guard in this area he will turn it on, so bypass/take him out and head to the Western door and use CARD #3 Inside you will find the **INFRARED GOGGLES** Now back track all the way to the Elevator for this floor and save your game. From the Elevator, make your way south while slipping past the Surveillance - Cameras until you reach the next screen. Here you will see a lone guard who will fall asleep, use this opertunity to bypass him without being save and hea -d to the next screen. Now whatever you do, do not move. Equip your Infrared Googles. The screen will turn grey, but the lasers will stand out as red beams that you can easily see. Cross the first clear spot, then go right, then south past the beams on this screen. TIP: Snake can also use his Cigarettes to locate the beams, however on the PS3 version you will slowly lose life. (Confirm this for me if this happens - on the MSX version; I haven't played that port in years.) Keep going South, then turn and continue where the beam opens, then stop, now head down and around to the Cell door and use CaRD #1 on it to find a Hostage/ P.O.W. Once he saved, leave the room and head East to the next screen. Here you will find a lone guard, ignore him and go to the Cell door and open it - with CARD #3, inside you will find another Hostage/P.O.W. who has more info on Dr. Madnar, who is being held in a cell located in the inner Courtyard of -- Building #1. We have two solid leads for now, so that is good. Leave the room and enter the Western Door with CARD #3 and face... ============================================================================== BOSS: Machinegun Kid Quickly hide behind one of the pillars. Now equip your R.C. Missles and make - use of them to take him out. Pretty simple fight, you will kill him with at le -ast 5 direct hits. ============================================================================== Once we finish off with this Boss, head to North Eastern door with CARD #1 and go inside to acquire the **PARACHUTE** Now we need to get back to the roof. So backtrack to the Elevator (don't forget to use the Infrared Googles for the - sensor beams) and head up. (Also use this time to save!) __________________________________ Building #1: Roof (Area 7) ================================== As we did before, equip the Bomb Blast Suit to get through the Wind Barrier. We are going to stock up Munitions and R.C. Missiles before we progress. First head West. Bypass/take out the guards here and continue East to find a Lone So -ldier and a door. Take out the guard with whatever means, and use CARD #3 on the door and enter it. Inside we'll be back in the room with R.C. Missiles, so stock on up. Now return to where the Elevator was and head west. By pass the guards easily here, and continue West. By pass the two guards here while you continue to head West. On this next screen, easily bypass the next set of sold -iers and head South. You'll find an open door, inside will be Munitions so, - stock up! Once you are finished here, leave the room with the ammo crate, and take the South Eastern path down. Follow it around to a door and use CARD #2 to open it, head inside to find a Hostage/P.O.W. Who also gives you info on how to jump off the Roof via Parachute. Your CLASS/STAR Rank should now be at level 3. So do some restocking if you need to, but when you're done doing that head back tot he Elevator to save. Now from the Elevator, return to the West screen. Like last time, by pass the soldiers here and move to the next western screen. Once there, sneak around th -e guards here, and make your way south to be on a new screen with a moveable bridge (This is why I had you save.) carefully move across it to the next scre -en and do it again. If you fall it will be an automatic game over. Once you hit the other side of the roof, a Sky Trooper will spot you and force an alert phase. Quickly go West to the next screen. Keep doing so until you come to an electrified floor. Quickly use a R.C. Missile to shut off the panel here, and open up the door with CARD #3, head into the room and quickly grab the **MINE DETECTOR**, use your SMG (Submachine Gun) here to take out the Sky Troops that flood the room. Leave it, and make your way east (just make sure to stay at the top part of the screen.) Eventually you will come across a... ============================================================================== BOSS: Hind D As soon as you hit the screen, hide behind the upper crates in the corner or its gun will shred you to pieces. None of your regular armaments will do in this fight. So instead, equip your Grenade Laucnher, move from the corner safe spot. Make sure to stay in the shadows of the Crates so its bullets won't shre -d you. Make use of 20 Grenades and he will go down. Just be sure to fire them one at a time. ______________ BOSS TACTICS ============== - The Hind D will just spew it's machine gun at you. So take cover. ============================================================================== Now that were done here... Head Nad North (where the Hind D was cutting us off from advancing.) Next you'll see an entry point on the western side of the scr -een. Equip your Parachute and you'll come to a ledge. Jump off to find Snake in the Courtyard (Ground Floor) of Building #1. Now that we are done here... Head North (Where the Hind D was cutting us off from advancing.) Next you'll see an entry point on the Western side of this screen. Go and it will appear to be a dead end. Jump off this ledge point and Solid Snake will use the Parachute to get down below in to the courtyard. __________________________________ Building #1: Ground Floor (Area 8) ================================== Once you have landed, equip the Mine Detector and go South. You will see some Mines scattered across the ground. Ignore the truck on the left and enter the one on the right to find **CARD #4** inside. Leave the truck and head back - North to where we landed, quickly open the door in front of you with CARD #4 and inside a scene will trigger and you will find out Dr. Madnar isn't in his holding cell. Leave the room and go West. On this screen, open the last door you see on the Eastern portion. Inside you will find a Hostage/P.O.W. who has info on Dr. Madnar. Apparently they just transfered him to Building #2. Leave the room then go up to the other door and use CARD #4 on it. Here we will be back in a place that is familiar. (This is the start of the game.) Use this - time to stock up on Mines and Rations. Then wait for the guards here to change their shift and use the Elevator and save. Our next objective is to make our Building #2. But before we do that, there's a piece of gear we need to grab th -at will make our game slightly more easier in terms of combat. From outside of the Elevator (which we saved from) head East to the next part of the screen. The door on lower Eastern Side use CARD #4 Head inside and you will be in a room with four enemy soldiers in the center. Equip your Cardboard Box and sneak past them heading East again. On this next screen head straight towards the Elevator and enter it, then head down to the Basement level. __________________________________ Building #1: Basement #1 (Area 9) ================================== From the start of the Basement area, head east, then go South, dispose of the Guard Dog and continue heading South on to the next screen. Keep going from screen to screen until you have to turn West, do so. On the next screen you should see a Southern Door, use CARD #4 here and go inside to find a nifty -- piece of equipment the **BODY ARMOR** TIP: Body Armor will reduce damage taken in half by enemy weapons. We are done here, head back to the Elevator and get back to the Ground Floor. __________________________________ Building #1: Ground Floor (Area 9) ================================== Once back on Ground Level, leave the Elevator, you will now see two enemies on patrol. Equip your Cardboard Box and get by them, while heading West. You will then be back in the room with the four soldiers in the center, your objective is to get through the door on North Western wall. Go outside to reach... _________________________________ Building #1: Destert #1 (Area 10) ================================= Here you will see two Trucks. The on the right will transport you back inside Building #1's Courtyard. If you take the same Truck again, it will Transfer you back inside Building #1. So ignore them, instead the left truck holds some Plastic Expolsive (if you nee them.) But becareful, this place is filled to - the teeth with land mines. Equip your Mine Detector to see where they are and carefully bypass them. Head North. This next screen has more mines, continue heading north but I recomend staying on the right side. On the next screen you should be behind a truck with Rations inside of it and you'll notice that some Tank rounds are being fired at you. Continue heading North while hugging the right side, until you eventually come across a... ============================================================================== BOSS: Tank Stay on the sides, and pay attention how the Tank moves. Normal weapons will - not be able to get through its thick armoring. As it moves Northern and Wester -n. It will shoot its Machine Gun, if you get in front of it, it will fire its main Cannon. How do we destroy this thing? Equip the Land Mines and place them where the Tank is going to move. Use one - at a time and take cover when you only need to. Continue doing this until the tank is destroyed. (12 Mines) Just whatever you do, don't plant double Mines as the 2nd hit won't register, you'll have to use one at a time. So stick a Mine down, and take cover until the Tank runs over it. Also, the Body Armor we picked up earlier, should help you some if you take - hits from its Machine Gun and don't let the Tank directly touch you, or it will run you over and cause an instant death. 10 direct hits from a Mine will destroy it. ============================================================================== With the Tank Destroyed, head back South to the truck to restock on Rations. Now continue North two times, get past to where the tank was guarding and keep going the same direction, eventually you'll be outside of Building #2. It does seem that the Enemy has gotten intel that Solid Snake is trying to make his - way in to the new building. There has to be a leak some where... Big Boss will then contact you and tells you how to infiltrate Building #2, by putting on - the Enemy Uniform. He will also change frequencies from 120.85 to 120.13. With the Enemy Uniform on, just walk up to the stationed patrols, and they - will grant you access (heh simpletons.) ============= Chapter 3: Locate Dr. Madnar ============= (MGMSXWALK-0003) ___________________________________ Building #2: Ground Floor (Area 11) =================================== In this building you will see an aquaduct. Ignore it for now and make your wa -y West. You will see two guards, one on the western side and another one on the Northern side. Keep in mind the enemies can still see you through the gra -tes surrounding the water works. Bypass/take out the Western soldier then use CARD #4 on the left Northern door, inside you will find munitions and a resupply of mines. Just remember to equip your Cardboard Box before leaving and re-entering the room, so that the North Eastern guard doesn't spot you. When you leave the room, remember do not move while in the Cardboard Box, just wait for the guard on the right to turn his head, then proceed back to the ent -rance of Building #2. Next head into the water works (keep the Cardboard Box on.) If the enemy does spot you, don't worry about taking damage. Follow the - aquaduct West, then head to the Northen Door. Make use of Card #4 and open the door, but before entering be sure to equip Snake's Grenade Launcher and remove the Cardboard Box. Once inside... ============================================================================== BOSS: Bulldozer Not a hard fight, but you must be absolutely good with timing. It will slowly come towards you and if you hit by it, it is an instant death. So if it gets - too close, just quickly head out of the room to reset it. To by pass it, you will need to destroy it with Grenades and the timing has to be quick before it runs you over and or smashes you against the wall. 1. Reset the boss if you need to. 2. If you need Ammo, remember where the Mines/Ammo Box is on this floor. 3. If you need extra rations, head back outside and head to the lone truck. ============================================================================== With the machine destroyed, Head North to the door and use CARD #4. Next you - will be in a room with an Elevator and laser sensors. Equip your Infrared Gogg -les in order to see the trip beams. These beams are different than the ones - we saw previously in Building #1 as they have pattern that fluxes. So pay on attention to that. Head to the Elevator and use it to save then leave. You - may want to keep the Ifrared Goggles equiped. Avoid the sensors and head East to the next screen. Next, head South and get in to the water (again: use the Cardboard Box to avoid the soldiers!) NOTE: Avoid the dark shadowed watery areas for now, or you will take damage and possibily drown. Now make your way to the Western door and use CARD #2 to enter the room. In here, bypass/take out the lone guard and go pick up the **ANTENNA** on the - table. This will prevent your TRANSCIEVER from being jammed. Now back track to where the Northern Elevator was (just remember to use your Goggles) and head up to the Roof. ___________________________ Building #2: Roof (Area 12) =========================== Once you are on the Roof, and enter the area - you will be ambushed by the -- enemy. Make use of your Submachine Gun here to mop up the mess that is to make way. Now make your way to the closed door on the South West and use CARD #2. Inside the cell, you will find a P.O.W. who has intelligence on Dr. Madnar. Leave this room and then make your way East to the next screen, continue to follow it East then go down South. Here you will see some Sky Troopers, just ignore them and head to the door and use CARD #4, here inside: you will have to face the Soldiers, make quick work of them and quickly get **CARD #5** and head out. TIP: Make use of the Body Armor we picked up and Rations if you need an extra advantage in combat! Next head East to find a closed door. Use Card $5 here and head inside to a room with an Elevator. Quickly head inside to cancel the Alerta nd now head ba -ck down to the Ground Floor (Floor #1). Don't forget to save! ___________________________________ Building #2: Ground Floor (Area 13) =================================== From the South Eastern Elevator: Upon arrival, once you leave the Elevator, Snake will be ambushed yet again, but this time it will not be in a state of Alert. Kill the guards here then use Card #5 on the Southern Door. In this room you will want to watch out for the floor in the center of the crates as it is a Pit Trap. One wrong move and it will be game over. So, just don't go near it, okay? Instead use CARD #5 on the Western Door. We are now on the South Eastern part of the Ground Floor. From here head North, to the next screen. This area should now look familiar. Bypass/take out the guards here and head East. Here, there will be three more soldiers that will be on patrol. One on the other side of the Water works and the path we need in order to progress. Head North to the next screen. Here, - you will find another locked door. Use CARD #5 to enter it to find a P.O.W. He will tell you information on the Water Works and its connection on how to get to Building #3. Now leave this area and head back to the North Eastern Elevato -r. If you don't remember, head South from the room we previously entered. Then - you will back in the room with three guards by the Water works. Bypass/take - them out, and then head West. On the next screen, equip the Cardboard Box and get into the water, then follow it around to the north entry poinnt then to the next screen. Head North West here to the next screen and you will be in the room with laser trap sensors, so equipped your Infrared Goggles, head in to the Elevator and save. TIP: Use this time to get Munitions from the previous room (the room just befo -re the Bulldozer) and Rations in Desert #1 in the truck located to the West of where you fought the tank (just remember to save the game at the Elevator when you get back.) Our next Objective is in the Basement. To get there, we need to go back to the South Western Elevator. Leave the North Eastern Elevator (remember equip your Goggles) and head East to the next screen. Now equip your Cardboard Box and make way South. Get into the water works when everything is clean, then make your way to the south entry point. Now head South in the opening. Head to the door on the Eastern side and use CARD #5. In here, remember to avoid the Trap Floor and make your way to the Eastern opened door. Fight your way through her -e to the Elevator then head to the Basement. ___________________________________ Building #2: Basement (Area 14) =================================== Once here, take out hte Guard Dogs or run past them and head to the South door and use CARD #5 to gain access. Once in the main area, Scheinder (the Resistan -ce Leader) will contact you via TRANSCIEVER letting you know that the whole - entire basement is a gas chamber. With this point noted, bnefore we continue on enter the Northern door on the left, with CARD #5 to open. It is here that you will find another P.O.W. Leave the room, returning to the previous one. Next, head to the Western door and use CARD #5, but before going in make sure to equ -ipped your Gas Mask. On the next screen, make your way North and then East on the next screen, here you will want to punch the Eastern Upper Right wall to hear a noise and a "?" will appear over Snake's head. Planet a Plastic Explosive here to blast open the wall to create a new path. Head in, and then go North. Here use Card #1 on the North door and head inside to find another P.O.W, who has information on how to get out of the Basement level. You should reach CLASS/RANK 4 now. Leave the room and on this screen you see a door on the left. use Card #5 to enter. It seem's we have found Dr. Madnar, release him of his binds, but we soon quickly find out it was his body double to lay a trap. Quickly move away from the center of the room or you'll be pulled under for an instant death. Snake finds out that the REAL Dr. Madar is in fact on the Second Floor. Next you will wanto go through the Western opened door. In this room, you'll find **CARD #6** laying on a table. Use it to open the Southern door (just remember to equip your Gas Mask before going outside of the room!) Next you'll see a door on the Western Wall, ignore it for now and head North, then East. On this screen you'll see an opened room, inside you'll find a Roller Trap and some munitions, rations and some Plastic Explosive. Use this time, but carefully stock up (especially Plastic Explosives) head back to the Gas Chamber and make your way back West and use CARD #6 on the Western doo -r. ============================================================================== BOSS: Fire Trooper His Flame throwing has a pretty far radius. Make your way to the Eastern wall here, then equip the SUBMACHINE GUN. Quickly get to his side, and fire it. He will go down easily. If he moves towards you, just move to the where he was originally standing. But you shouldn't have to do this, as the SMG takes care of him too easily. ============================================================================== Now enter the Elevator and head to the Second Floor. Don't forget to use this time to save! ___________________________________ Building #2: Second Floor (Area 15) =================================== TIP: Making use of the Cardboard Box here is crucial if you want to remain unseen. Tread lightly on how you wish to do this. This floor is crawling with enemy patrols, so be on your guard! Our first obje -ctive is make our way East to the next screen. Ignore the Southern door, and continue advancing East while bypassing/taking out the guards. On this screen use Card #6 on the door here. Kill all the enemies inside this room, then you will see a very special item that is the **ANTIDOTE** which we will need later on. Now leave this room and return to the previous section. Now leave this -- room and return the previous screen. Bypass/take out the guards here then use CARD #1 on the South-Eastern door. Upon entering, you'll be in a Boss room. Quickly make your way to the center of the room in between the crates and avoid them now. Reason being is that: we aren't properly equipped to damage the two Cyborgs here, especially with - our current weaponry. Equip CARD #1 and use it on the Southern left door. On this screen. On this screen, bypass/take out the lone soldier here and make your way south then head West to the next screen. Here you'll see in this area that a door is open to the North Western portion; ignore it, as tempting as it sounds, there are guards inside. Only go in there if you really need Muniions. Instead, head North to find more patrols. Bypass them/neutralize them. Continue heading North to find a locked door. Use CARD #6, inside you will -- finally find the Civillian Hostage: Dr. Madnar. Upon saving him, we found out Continue heading North to find more patrols. Do what you must here and make your way North again to find a locked door. Use CARD #6, inside you will final -ly find the real Civillian Hostage: Dr. Madnar. Upon saving him, we find out that: that his daughter too is a Hostage, by the name of Ellen Madnar and he will not tell us any intel on Metal Gear until we save her. We also find out that she is being held in the basement of Building #1. Leave this room and head South Again, by pass/neutralize the soldiers here, continue south and do the same thing again (i.e the soldiers) and thern head East. Here, bypass/take out the guards here, and use CARD #1 on this door to return back to the Boss room. Now we need to open the southern bottom right door with Card #5. Now, do what you need to do with the soliders and head inside the opened cell to find a P.O.W. who has information on crossing the African Desert #2 to get to Building #3. We will need to find a Compass to cross. Return the previous room and head back the boss room. Now enter the Eastern Door, use CARD #5. This will have two guards, take out the Northern one, then head to the door he was watching. Use Card #3 inside you will find another P.O.W. who has information on contacting OUTER HEAVEN Resistance member named Jennifer at TRANSCIEVER Frequency 120.48. Make note of this, and laeave the room. Take out the bypass/take out the guards and head to the other door located on the North East (right door.) Head inside using the CARD #6, then return to the previous room (take out the guard) then contact Jennifer (120.48) once done, head back inside and pick up a serious form of fire power: the **ROCKET LAUCNHER**, however, we do not have the ammo for it yet. Remember that room I told you to skip with the guards in it? That's where we need to go to stock up. Just note that if you go into that room it will trigg -er an Alert Phase. Once done, head back to the Boss room to face... ============================================================================== BOSS: Bloody Brad When entering this room the first time, you will notice there is no boss music and they rush you on the sides, but will return to their center positioning as you move to the center of the room. You cannot damage them with conventional bullet weapons, so you will need the Rocket Launcher that we picked up. Just go to the sides and blast them, and take cover when you can. Get rid of these Cyborg wannabes! ============================================================================== Defeating the Cyborg twins, makes **CARD #7** appear. We have two pieces of eq -uipment we need to acquire then we are pretty much done with Building #2 (for now.) Use CARD #2 on the North Eastern door (upper right door) and head to the next screen. Head East to the next screen and avoid the guard or take him out. Now make your way to the next screen, then make your way to the door, here you will want to contact Jennifer Again (120.48) and she will open the door that - leads you to the **COMPASS** (which we will need a bit later.) Now make your way back to the Ground Floor. (You should have Building #2 memor -ized by now.) ___________________________________ Building #2: Second Floor (Area 16) =================================== From the South Eastern Elevator, leave the two rooms until you come to the Wat -er Works. Head North just a tad, then go West to the next screen. Take out - the soldier here and use Card #6 on the door, inside you will find another pie -ce of equipment the **FLASHLIGHT** which is important if you want follow - either or of these routes. We have two choices to get back to Building #1. There are two routes to take and of course the use of Trucks. A. Head to the Basement of Building #2: Even though this is the fastest route to get back, you will need the Flashlight and it is filled with Pit Traps all over the place. This is the hardest way to get back, and I would not recomend it, nor will I explain how to get through it because it can be darn right impossible. (I'm dead serious.) B. Stay on the Ground Floor of Building #2: This is the safest route, and you can easily avoid an instant death (especially if you haven't saved in quite some time.) It takes a bit longer, to get back to Building #1, but you can use this time restock up on munitions and rations. Also, you can save your game before taking off. The choice is yours.... ============= Chapter 4: Hostage Rescue ============= (MGMSXWALK-0004) ___________________________________ Building #2: Desert #1 (Area 17) =================================== Make your way past the Desert, don't forget to stop to stock up on Rations if you need them on the first truck you see going back West. Also, don't forget there are mines here, so use your Mind Detector, you will eventually come back to Building #1. Use Card #4 on the door to head inside. ___________________________________ Building #1: Ground Floor (Area 18) =================================== Once inside, you will be in a room with soldiers in the center of the room. J -ust bypass them, and head East directly to the Elevator and take it to the Basement level. ___________________________________ Building #1: Basement (Area 19) =================================== Remember to avoid/out run the dogs or shoot them here. From the Elevator make your way West. Head West again on the next screen, then South two times. This area should look really familiar to you. Head West and you'll just be outside of the cell that held Solid Snake and Grey Fox. Use Card #6 on the Eastern Doo -r. Once further in to the basement kill the two dogs here and use Card #6 on the door here. and inside you will hear someone screaming "HELP!", Be mindful of the pit trap here. Punch the Eastern wall until a "?" appears and then you will want to place a Plastic Explosive to open a new path. Head inside to meet and rescue Ellen Madnar. We find out that Dr. Madnar's daughter being used as leverage to force her father to work on the Metal Gear weapon. We are pretty much done here, stokc up on whatever ammo and rations you need and return to Building #2. Remeber to avoid/out run the dogs, or shoot them here. From the Elevator make your way West. Head West again on the next two screens then South. This area should look really familiar for you. Use CARD #3 on the door and you'll just now be outside of the holding cell that housed Solid Snake and Grey Fox. Make use of Card #6 on the Eastern Door. Once further in the basement kill the two Dogs here, and use CARD #6 on the door. Once inside, you will hear someone screaming "HELP!", though bemindful in this room as there is a trap floor. Punch the Eastern wall until a "?" appears over Snake's head and then place a Plastic Explosive over that wall to clear a path. Head inside to meet and - rescue Ellen Madnar. We found out that Dr. Madnar's daughter is being used as leverage to force her father to work on the Metal Gear weapon. We are pretty much done here. So stock up on whatever ammo and rations you need and return back to Building #2 NOTE: This basement has a under tunnel, which I mentioned above that takes you back to the Basement level of Building #2. I suggest not using it. If you do, do so at your own accord. Also you will need the Flashlight to advance in this section. Building #2: Ground Floor (Area 20) =================================== You should know this place by now. Make your way directly to the Elevator as you avoid the soldiers and passing the security sesonor beams that you came across earlier. Once inside the Elevator head to Level 2. ___________________________________ Building #2: Ground Floor (Area 20) =================================== You should know this place by now. Make your way directly to the Elevator as you avoid the soldiers and passing the security sesonor beams that you came across earlier. Once inside the Elevator head to Level 2. ___________________________________ Building #2: Ground Floor (Area 21) =================================== Make your way back to Dr. Madnar and rescue him again. This time he will tell you information on the Metal Gear TX-55 unit. As well as its location and how to destroy it. To do that, we msut attach Plastic Explosives on its legs, as its armor is weakest at those points. However, there is a certain order we - must do it in: L = Left Leg | R = Right Leg SEQUENCE _____________________________ R-R-L R-L-L R-L-L R-R-L R-L-R ============================= However, Dr. Madnar forgot the final place ment. So I guess it's up to us afte -r that point. (Don't worry! That is why you're using this walkthrough! I will tell you, when we are at that final point!) Now make your way back to the Elev -ator. Use this time to save and make your way to the roof. ___________________________________ Building #2: Roof (Area 22) =================================== Rmember that once we gain entry here, an Alert Phase will trigger. Book it to the 2nd Elevator and return to the Ground Floor. ___________________________________ Building #2: Ground Floor (Area 23) =================================== Make your way back out to the main area where the Water Works are. If you do not know, from the Elevator, go South, enter the room, then head to the East Door and use Card #5 (needed for both doors here.) then in the next screen - head North. Now get in to the water (remember to not go in the dark part.) and make your way West, then North, then head East until the next screen, continue East on to the next screen and then head South to find a way out of the water works. From here make your way East until you come to a door that requires -- Card #7. Now before going outside, you're going to want to use the Antidote and the Compass. Reason being is that the Scropion venom is toxic, and if you don't use the Compass the desert will drag on forever. ___________________________________ Building #2: Desert #2 (Area 24) =================================== We have quite a ways to go. All you need to do is equip the Compass and make sure to use the Antidote the minute a Scropion touches you. Eventually you will come to Building #3, but you will be ambushed. Quickly head inside with the use of CARD #7 another fire fight will start. ___________________________________ Building #3: Ground Floor (Area 25) =================================== TIP: I suggest using Body Armor and use Rations only when needed. Punch the - Upper Right wall to see a "?" appear, place an Plastic Explosive to blast a hole in to it and continue North. Just be sure to stay on the right side. Now quickly as you can move south and by pass the pit trap (go to the corner of the crates) another one should form, just slowly walk between the two pits then head in to the Elevator. Head to the Basement (which is 100 feet below) ___________________________________ Building #3: Basement (Area 26) =================================== We aren't going to be here for long. Be beware of the Laser Turrents on the Northen walls. Get behind the pillar (on the south) then punch the wall to see a "?" appear. Blast it open with a Plastic Expolsive. Head inside the new pathway, here you will find **OXYGEN CYLINDER** which we will need in order to breathe under the water in Building #2. Make your way back there. Just remember to use the Compass and Antidote when - it is needed. ___________________________________ Building #2: Ground Floor (Area 27) =================================== From the back entrance, make your way East then south until you find the openi -ng of the water works. Equip your Oxygen Cylinder and head in to the dark of the water. Keep heading North until you reach an opening on the west side. Av -oid the Guards here and head North to find an electrified floor. Use a R.C. Missle to dismental it and use Card #1 on the left door to find Munitions to stock up on and you will recieve a TRANSCIEVER call from Schneider. Apparent -ly he knows who the real leader of Outer Heaven is but is quickly cut off. Leave the room, destroy the panel and head to the right door and use CARD #7 inside you will face... ============================================================================== BOSS: Dirty Duck This fight will be tough, but I will simplify it. Quickly save the three P.O.W hostages that he is hiding behind like the true coward he is. He will throw so -me serious Bommarangs to damage you. Move to the side of him, and in the cent -er (just avoid the Pit Trap) and you'll have an opening to hit him with your Handgun's bullets. Do this until he is dead, then save the P.O.W. Hostages and acquire Card #8 which we will need to advance further into Building #3. NOTE: If you accidently killed one of the hostages, you will lose a CLASS/RANK Star. If this happens you need to reset the game and reload your save or you cannot finish the game, period. There's no other way around it. ============================================================================== After saving the Hostages, one of them reveals themselves as Jennifer's broth -er. And gives you information on how to escape Outer Heaven. Now is a very - good time to stokc up on Munitions and Rations. Now make your way back to the Basement area of Building #3 Just remember to use the Compass and Antidote to get back there. ============= Chapter 5: The Final Confrontation ============= (MGMSXWALK-0005) ____________________________________ Building #3 - Ground Floor (Area 28) ===================================== Remember to avoid Pit Traps in this area while making your way back to the - Elevator and head to 100th Basement Floor. ____________________________________ Building #3 - Basement (Area 29) ===================================== Once here, avoid the Laser Camera's, and head to the door on the Eastern Wall. Use Card #8 to enter, inside will be last P.O.W. to rescue in the game. Who tells us the man in charge of this Uprising is none other than FOXHOUND's comm -anding officer: Big Boss! Can it be true?! Leave this room and head West. You will want to Avoid/dodge the laser beams in this next screen from the Cameras. Go to the Northern door and use Card #8. Before going inside equip the GAS MAS -K! Ignore the Northen door here on the upper right, as it will lead to a Pit Trap and a dead end. Punch the left Northen wall until a "!" appears and plant a Plastic Explosive to create the right path. On the next screen becareful as there will be another Pit Trap. By pass it and head to the Northen door and - use Card #1. Equip your Gas Mask before advancing. This next area is littered mines, on top of it, is a Gas chamber. Equip the - MINE DETECTOR then head to the North door, use Card #1. In this room, the floo -r will be electrified. Make a run to the open door, if your health is low, - use a Ration. Once on the other side head on in to face... ============================================================================== BOSS: Metal Gear TX-55 Metal Gear itself is not mobile. The only thing here you need to worry about are the Laser Turrents. Dodge them when you can. I suggest equipping the Body Armor to aid in this task. You will need to plant Plastic Explosive's at the unit's legs in a certain order. That order is the following below: L = Left Leg | R = Right Leg SEQUENCE _____________________________ R-R-L R-L-L R-L-L R-R-L R-L-R ============================= The final placement is: Right. NOTE: You will need 16 Plastic Explosvies to defeat the TX-55 Unit. If you even MESS up slightly, you will have to start all over. If you have been deranked from any hostage kills, you will not be able to defeat it. ============================================================================== Attention: Now that Metal Gear TX-55 has been destroyed, An emergency alert is dispatched. Outer Heaven is now on count down to destruction. Head in to the Western Door to face the the legendary soldier... ============================================================================== BOSS: Big Boss As the timer counts down, you will be confronted by Big Boss. The trick here - is to make use of direct Rocket Launcher hits while avoiding his weapon around the crates. Kill him in order to be able to escape Outer Heaven. ============================================================================== Once Big Boss is defeated, head into the now opened Door. If you need to buy more time, equip and consume the pack of Cigarettes. Use the last ladder on - the far left. Climb it until you escape Outer Heaven. You have finished Metal Gear for the MSX/PS3. Congratulations and enjoy the - credits! ...And maybe a plot twist?... ============ 11. Weapons/Accessory ============ (MGWEP-0006) Fist: You can preform CQC with your First. Punching an enemy 1-2 times stuns them. While a 3rd hit kills them Handgun: Your basic Pistol, can be fitted with a Suppressor. Mine: Land mines that can be placed on the ground. Can be used to destroy armored vehicles (such as tanks) and can be used to lay as traps for Enemy Soldiers. However, the blast is loud and can trigger an Alert Phase Plastic Explosive: A charge set and will go off in a certain time. Large blast and very loud. Can Alert Soldiers and demolish fake walls. R.C. Missile: Short for Remote Controlled Missile. You can fire these and use the D-Pad (or assigned MSX keys) to control its destination. Very useful on some Boss fights and used to destroy the Control Panels for Electrified Floors. Grenade Launcher: Hurl's grenades at a distance with a retical sight. Also used to destroy tougher armored vechiles and take down attack Helicopters. Also used to take out enemies from a medium distance. Submachine Gun: Or SMG, this weapon makes Snake prone and cannot move while firing. However, the bullets spread in a circular motion allowing you to get corner shots and the like. It also can be fitted with a Suppressor. Rocket Launcher: Most powerful weapon in game. Able to destroy anything in its path. Loud, and can alert enemies to your location. Suppressor: Used to silence and reduce muzzle flash of the Handgun and SMG. ============= 12. Equipment ============= (MGE-0007) Binoculars: A recon scotting tool. Excellent to use to see what is coming up in front of you, behind you, or either east or west. Excellent tool to use so that you can prepare the movements and tools you need to use to advance. Under rated at most. Cigarettes: Lucky Stripes are Solid Snake's prefered brand. However on the PS3 version, equiping them will slowly lower your Health. Can be used as an Alternative to by-pass enemy laser sensors. Card #1 - #8: Key Cards are used to access certain doors. Not one will work on the other. So memorizing Key Card accesses is key to using them. Otherwise you'll sometimes find yourself in a bad spot and will will have to go through every card to find the right one to open the door. Ration: This item restores your health. Having it euipped will do the same thing automatically. Transmitter: You get this item automatically after you've been Captured and got Snake's equipment back. This tool provides as a tracking - device and will alert all enemies to your position. Get rid of it quickly. Don't even think, do it! Gas Mask: This allows you to breathe normally in Gas Chambers which can be found in certain areas of Building #1, #2 and #3. You will not lose Health if you have equipped in these rooms. Cardboard Box: A box, that will later become famous. Use it to hide and sneak away from Surveillance Cameras, also excellent to use to slip past enemy Soldiers. Enemy Uniform: This item is used to gain access to Building #2 without having to alert the enemy. Bomb Blast Suit: The Bomb Blast Suit at first makes you think that its useful for high end explosive charges. However it's not, its simply a plot item, to advance on the Roof. Infrared Goggles: Used to see laser sensoring equipment so that you can easily bypass the beams. Parachute: This item is used to land in the center of the Courtyard inside Building #1. Mine Detector: Detects land mines that have been planted in certain areas in the game. They show up as red little dots on the screen. Body Armor: This item cuts damage in half from Enemy attacks. Antidote: This cures the poison that Scropions inflict on you. Antenna: This allows you to use your TRANSCIEVER in Building #2 Compass: This allows you to nevigate your way through the Desert to get to Building #3 Flashlight: This is used in the section Basement level between Building #1 and Building #2 Oxygen Cylinder: This allows you to Breathe under water in Building #2 (the dark shadowy parts.) without risk of losing Health. =========== 13.
