=========================================================================
2) GAMEPLAY
=========================================================================

I. Game Flow
------------
 After the tutorials and the first few missions, you're finally allowed
 to play the game 100%. Each mission begins at Intermission. Intermission
 allows you to edit your deck, buy new packs, save and go through 
 options, and finally select a map to play on.

 At the beginning of each round, you'll receive two cards from the deck,
 excluding the first round. In the first round, you begin with a full
 hand (six cards). There are a variety of cards in the game, including
 weapons, armor, actions, and movement. Proceed to the DECK CONSTRUCTION
 part of this section for further information on the deck, and how to
 create an effective one.

 Each mission has a set goal. If the goal or objective makes no mention
 of killing guards, then a better grade will be awarded when succesfully
 meeting the specific objective the game brings up (usually reaching some
 bullseyes at the end of the level). Other issues that determine a grade 
 is times found by the enemy, and the total cost incurred during the 
 match. You are rewarded up to three cards for a good grade (1 for a B, 
 2 for an A, and 3 for a S).

II. Using Cards
---------------

 There are three total ways to use a card. Most cards allow only two of
 these, while some rare ones only allow one way. These options are:
 1. Use, 2. Equip, and 3. Move.

 Most Use Cards have two options. You can use the card (AN: for example,
 using the SOCOM card can destroy a camera), or instead use it for
 movement. If used for movement, the COST used is the card's COST minus
 one.

 Secondly, there are cards that you can equip. Most of these are similar
 to the Use Cards, where you have the option to equip or move. An example
 of an Equip card is Body Armor or Front Evade LV.1.

 Lastly, there are some cards that only allow Snake to use them. Examples
 of this are Big Boss or Action +.

 
III. REST
---------

 The REST meter shows how many turns you have left in the current round.
 The default and standard amount is 2/2, meaning you have two actions to
 make before you're forced to END. Once Snake is at 0/2, the command
 menu automatically pops up. This menu can be brought up earlier simply
 by pressing X a few times during your turn.

 REST lowers COST as well. For example, let's say you've used an Action +
 to increase total rest to 3. After two turns, you'll be at 1/3 REST.
 All cards will have a reduction in COST by 2. If you were at 2/3 REST,
 then all cards' COST reduction would be 1.

IV. Reaction (REA)
------------------
 Reaction determines whether or not Snake can use defensive cards like
 Body Armor or the Front Evade cards. These cards in particular have
 a REA of 50%, meaning, there is a 50% chance that Snakes reacts to the
 attack from an enemy, and dodges/absorbs/blocks the attack. 

 There are cards like Liquid Snake or the MP5 that can increase Snake's
 REA or lower the enemy's REA.

 Additionally, all equipped weapons have their own REA. If the reaction
 occurs, Snake will counter using the weapon free of COST. After the
 firing, the weapon is destroyed. Also, the soldier countered upon has
 an opportunity to counter himself.

V. COST
--------
 Every card in the game has a set cost. If you use the card (whether for
 it's actual use or merely for movement), then the cost will be added
 to your total cost. This value determines when your next turn comes up.

 For example, let's say you use a Grenade (COST:7), and then a SOCOM
 (COST:5) to blow the grenade up, killing two guards. There are two
 remaining guards left on the map. One has COST of 3, the other has a 
 COST of 7. Snake has a COST of 12 after his two turns are up. Neither
 of the three characters can make their next turn, as you need a COST of
 0 to do so. However, COST is reduced at the same rate between Snake and
 the Genome Soldiers, so the first guard will have his turn up next. Then
 the next, and then finally Snake again.

 If you find your COST up high (like you needed to reshuffle your full
 deck, which has a penalty of 10 COST), there are cards like Meryl
 Silverburgh or Cost -4 that reduce it.

 If there are no enemies around Snake, then COST will automatically drop
 down to 0, and Snake can take another turn.

VI. Game Column
---------------
 Every character, whether ally or enemy, has a column representing three
 things. This information can be seen through the Aerial View Mode, and
 can provide some more information on what your next move should be.

 The first number represents the number of cards the person had in their
 hand. The second is the amount of COST they have accumulated. The third
 represents their turn order. If that number is a 6, then it means that
 with their current COST, 5 other characters will have their turn first.

VII. Equipping
--------------

 Most equip cards are easy to use. Simply equip the card in one of the
 two slots (4 slots with Equipment LV.2 and 9 slots with Equipment LV.3)
 and the card is activated. Examples of this are the boxes, card keys,
 and uniforms.

 The difficult thing that comes with equipping is with weapons. The game
 does a poor job of explaining what to do, and it doesn't help that the
 first weapons in the game, the SOCOM and FAMAS, are actually use cards.
 While the SOCOM becomes worthless early in the game, the FAMAS is still
 a decent weapon through the half-way point. So the game allows the
 gamer to reach this far without ever really forcing you to figure out
 how the hell equip weapons work.

 The key thing with equip weapons is to look at the ammo it uses. For
 example, the USP uses four CAL45 bullets when you shoot with it. Two
 other cards use the same calibur bullet; the USP (Laser S.) and the
 S.A.A. Colt.

 Let's say you begin a map with two USPs, one USP (Laser S.) and one
 S.A.A. Colt, and you want to kill the guard right next to you with the
 USP. First, equip the USP in one of the available equipment slots. Next,
 you now have to load this USP; as it is right now, there are no bullets
 in it.

 To load the USP, you need a WPN card that uses the same calibur bullet.
 Going back to your hand, you have three different cards that will load
 your USP so you can fire. You can use the same USP card, or you can
 use a different gun that uses the same bullet. Let's say you're going
 to load your USP with the USP (Laser S.). Usually, there is no rule that
 this card is better to load then the other card. To load, equip the
 USP (Laser S.), and move it over your already equipped USP. Instead of 
 saying 'Replace' on the top of the screen, it will say 'Loading.' Press
 circle, and you will load the gun, and the game will give you the option
 to fire at the guard.

 You could use either of the three cards left in your hand to do so.
 However, you'd likely want to skip using the Colt, as the gun will only
 load three bullets, whereas the USP can be loaded with a total of four.
 If you look at the Colt card, you will see it fires three CAL45 bullets.
 The amount of bullets a gun fires is the same amount it will load, so
 if you were to use the Colt to load the USP, you would only fire three
 bullets. If you need a total of four bullets to kill the guard, 
 equipping the Colt isn't going to work.

 I should also note that the number of bullets shot is determined by
 the ammo card. So while it may seem the USP has a total of four shots,
 you could technically load it with another card that fires 8 CAL45s.
 Although there is no such card in this game, other weapons in this game
 deal with this situation. The Chronicle Pack's R-5 has a total of
 five shots, but you can equip the M4 to fire a total of eight. So what
 does this do to your deck? Not a whole lot, but you may consider putting
 in 2-3 R-5s (the far superior gun) and 1-2 M4s (the better loader) to
 maximize your damage output as opposed to just putting in 4 R-5s.

 Additionally, there are many types of supplement equip cards in the 
 game. Examples of these cards are Sniper Wolf, Aim, and Hold Up. You use
 these cards similar to how you load the gun. Lets continue to use the
 USP example, but instead, let's say you just have a USP and Sniper Wolf
 card in your hand, and the guard is three squares ahead of you looking
 at you.

 In this example, you could just use the USP to fire at the guard, but
 since he's looking at you, and is so far away, your hit % will be very
 low. To counter this problem, you can use the Sniper Wolf card to 
 supplement your USP. Before loading it, equip the Sniper Wolf card on
 your already equipped USP. Now, load it and fire. Sniper Wolf 
 supplements your USP by providing a 100% hit chance, and allows you to
 kill the guard instead of missing three or four of your bullets.

 Most supplement cards only have very specific uses, so make sure you
 take the time to look at these cards, and see if they're the right
 cards for your deck.


VIII. Deck Construction
---------------------

 With the basics of the game understood, it's now time to look deeper 
 into the deck you'll be using. There are a number of deck styles you can
 use, and it's really up to you as the player to decide what style you
 want. Some cards will be found in most people's decks. These include
 cost reduction cards, high BLK movement cards, and probably some
 sniper rifles.

 There are a lot of cards in this game, and it can be a little confusing
 in regards to creating a smallish 30 card deck. Some cards are only
 useful in certain situations, so you can eliminate these from your main
 deck most of the time. Examples of these cards is the Mine D. card.
 If you're on a map without mines, there is no reason to have the Mine D.
 card in your deck. 

 These deck examples will not be very helpful for those beginning the
 game. There is an underlying theme in the cards (lots of COST 
 reductions, lots of high BLK movement), so you can base these decks
 with lesser cards. However, the Sniper Deck isn't going to be a useful
 build for someone who doesn't have access to the PSG-1 yet.

 These decks are in a work in progress, so please send in your input.

 Sniper Deck
 -----------
 A lot of people tend to use this type of deck for Teliko, as they give
 Snake something funner to do. Still, the sniper rifles in this game are
 devastating, and can really, dare I say, pWn the competition. This deck
 can also work well in multiplayer, although some minor changes will 
 no doubtedly be made (like tossing the Jonathon Ingrams).

 4x PGS-1
 4x SVD Dragunov
 3x Mosin Nagant
 4x Sniper Wolf
 4x Johnny Sasaki
 4x Running Man
 4x Stealth
 2x Action + or Action ++
 ----
 30 Total Cards


 CQC Deck
 --------
 This deck cannot be accomplished until the very end of the game. Once
 the Power Plant missions are done, the MGS3 pack is available at
 Intermission.

 4x Running Man
 2x Ocelet Unit
 4x Johnny Sasaki
 3x Action +
 4x Rush
 4x Stealth
 4x Cost -12
 4x Jonathon Ingram
 ----
 30 Total Cards

 Multiplayer Deck
 ----------------
 Remember, only COST -4 cards are available in multiplayer (lame). In
 my experience, Snipers rule, but I'm curious to hear your builds in
 e-mails. AFAIK, stealth does not work.

 The claymores work nicely, as you can totally lead your opponent into
 them. Load them up in a corner, then stay back and lure him in, or
 drop a few in random places in hopes of a lucky strike. It should be
 enough to get your opponent to start planning his movements by where
 you might have placed a mine. And if you have them there, than you have
 the game (Superbrak000).

 4x PSG-1
 4x SVD Dragunov
 4x Sniper Wolf
 3x Mosin Nagant
 4x Johnny Sasaki
 4x Running Man
 2x Major Zero
 2x Bandana
 4x Claymore

=========================================================================
3) WALKTHROUGH
=========================================================================

 This walkthrough is designed with stealth in mind. It is difficult
 to go through levels undetected until you earn the MGS2 pack in the
 card shop. Until then, my advice is to just shoot first and ask 
 questions later. There, you'll want to buy Stealth cards.

 There are two difficulties in the game. Extreme mode is unlocked after
 defeating the game once. In Extreme mode, guards are more plentiful,
 have more LIFE, and some have a lot of equipment already on. This guide 
 was not written with Extreme mode in mind.

 If you're looking for Extreme mode advice, unfortunately, there is not
 much to say. Stealth + COST reduction cards rule, along with the Rush
 + Rush combo. Remember that the LV.1 and LV.2 cards are in your 
 inventory once the game starts.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 00: Tutorial
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Move to the Genome Soldier card, and press circle to move. Take Snake
 to the designated point to your north, and then Roger will ask you to
 look forward (which is up if you haven't changed the camera yet).

 After you do this, we'll run into some more cut-scenes, interwinded
 with Snake running around.

 One back in control of Snake, it's time to tackle the ladder. Roger
 recommends (AN: demands in reality) to use the Body Armor card to move
 up to the ladder. I know it's early, but I figure now is a good time
 to give a little hint with movement cards: Always remember to keep a
 couple low-cost cards in your deck strictly for movement. Especially
 at the beginning of the game, when there are few movements cards
 available to you. The lowest cost for one of these cards is 4. The
 Body Armor costs you 5, so in reality, the ration or the 
 Front Evade LV.1 would be a better choice. But in this situation, select
 the Body Armor card, press cicle on move, and then move towards the
 ladder and look towards it. This gives you the option to move up the 
 ladder.

 Once on top, Roger gives you his lecture on equipping cards and items.
 For now, his lecture is enough for you to take advantage of evade and
 body armor cards. Once equipped, use the Genome Soldier to walk up
 to the gate. Then, use the Socom card (AN: despite it being a weapon,
 you don't actually equip this!) to destroy the lock on the gate.

 After the mission is complete, the game will take you to Intermission,
 which is where you'll spend a significant portion of the game at. 
 Currently, there is nothing to do other then to select Map Select.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 01: Lobito Laboratory - Outside Gate
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Press triangle and take a good look at where each guard is. The guard
 in the southeast corner will not bother you at all, so ignore him unless
 you want to kill all the guards in the area. The guard at the gate, and
 the one between the two buildings to the west are your primary targets.

 To begin with, move foward and then up the ramp into the first building
 you run into. You can do this without being detected, as none of the
 guards actually walk out enough to see you. Grab the MGS1 pack, then
 exit out and kill the guard in between the two buildings. Ideally, his
 back should be against you. End your turn early so you aren't initally
 detected by him.

 Now, walk out and flatten yourself on the southern wall of the northern
 building. End your turn, so you have a full set of turns after you
 knock. Once you knock, move to the western wall of the building, and
 end your turn. The Genome Soldier tends to go south, then west to where
 you knock, so you can imagine your target path. I recommend killing the
 guard as his back is against you, so that you can enter the northern
 building for the second MGS1 pack.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 02: Office
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 If you start with a Genome Soldier card and a SOCOM or FAMAS card, then
 you can take out the guard down in the hall. If you can't, first go
 into the office to grab the MGS1 pack. You may have to crawl once
 inside the office due to the guard's presence, but I did not crawl and
 was not detected. Exit out the office and and move east then north.
 Stop right under the camera on the west wall (it won't see you, so don't
 bother destroying it).

 From here, use a SOCOM or FAMAS to destroy the camera ahead of you. This
 is a long distance, so your hit % may be low. Still, unless you have 
 a chaff grenade, there isn't anything you can do here. If you fail to
 destroy it on one card, then wait until you have a second.

 Continue through the hall, ignoring the door north. Destroy another
 camera (use triangle to see it's line of vision), and then grab the
 MGS1 pack. Return back to the door we first ignored, and then dispatch
 the guard in there (he may be north of the MGS1 pack by the time you're
 through the office area). 

 AN: The guard can see south through the boxes when you get the MSG1
 pack. Crawl if necessary.

 Before you enter the door to exit out of here, continue east to receive
 another MGS1 pack. When you have it, go back to the northern door to
 continue with the mission.

 Alice interrupts you before you can continue. Follow Alice's suggestion,
 as the east side simply leads to a dead-end.

 The west side consists of two cameras and one guard. You can ignore the
 northern most camera as the door leading to Gary is right next to the
 first camera.

 Upon entering the room, a Patrol Bot will appear. To my knowledge, the
 bot always goes south, so whatever you do, don't head south! Instead
 go north to go around the bot, and enter the door to go deeper into the
 mission. If you can destroy the bot (through a grenade, then using a
 SOCOM or FAMAS to blow it up is the best way), it will drop a MGS1 pack.
 
 You're now in the eastern office room. Grab the MSG1 pack (yeah, another
 one!) and continue north. Take out the guard if you want to.
 Eventually, the game will cut to a scene with Gary.

 Mission Change
 --------------
 With the mission change, we now need to take the eastern path, way back
 when I told you to ignore this path originally because of Alice.
 You can actually see the target goal in front of the door as you make
 your way from where you met Gary. Three guards will be your obstacle
 to get through the eastern door. A Grenade + SOCUM card combo works well
 to take out two or three of the soldiers.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 03a: Ruins - Lower
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Immediately use the Aerial View feature to get your bearings. Despite
 the guard's presence to your east (the one that goes back and forth),
 he won't be able to see you at all. 

 What we need to worry about is the two guards up the closest stairs.
 Fortunately, they shouldn't bother you until you make some noise, so
 proceed down the road towards where the camera is. A small cut-scene
 will occur.

 If you haven't noticed it already, the wall in front of the camera was
 just built, preventing us access to the residential area. Unfortunately,
 the game requires us to go right up to the wal to do this, meaning we
 need to disable the camera. I did not try it personally, but you could
 load up on chaff grenades for this mission, so that you don't have to
 spend five rounds waiting for one to pop up. Use it to disable the
 camera, walk up to the wall, then back off.

 The other way to do this is to kill the guards. If you destroy the 
 camera with conventional weapons, at least one of them will hear you.
 So... take'em out. You should be able to get on top of the stairs 
 without detection, but you'll need to eliminate both on one turn.

 Once you reach the wall, another cut-scene will occur. Return back to
 where you entered the Ruins from.

 AN: In Extreme mode, you skip the next two levels as you already have
 the C4 in your deck.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 04a: Minefield - Lower
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 You have to move westward through the Minefield. If you don't have it in
 your deck, put in the Mine D. card so you can detect the mines.

 There is a mine in the square to the east of the boxes nearby. There
 is also a second mine two squares to the west of the wooden stairs of
 the building closest to you. So yeah, equip the Mine D. card as soon
 as possible so you don't have to figure out where these are based on my
 descriptions, cuz they suck, k? A third and fourth mine are located in 
 the northwest corner of the map, way outside your path.

 With three guards in the area, this map at first seems rather easy.
 However, it can be difficult to get through unnotice, which increases
 the amount of guards you need to face greatly.

 The MGS1 pack on top of the vehicle in the middle of the area is
 inaccessible at this point in the game, unless you were lucky enough
 to grab a climb card from the MGS2 pack. Which is doubtful.
 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 05: Armory
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 First floor
 -----------
 There are a total of six armory rooms in this map, but only two of the
 bottom three are accessible at this point in the game.

 Make your way west, slowly killing off guards. I am unaware of
 strategies that allow you to dodge killing them. Of course, I'm open to
 your strategies if you were able to do it. This is the first map where
 the guards will start using equipment. A lot of them have Ceramic Armor,
 which deflects 80 hit points. Keep this in mind when you're tackling 
 more then just one.

 The two rooms accessible (they don't have a colored door) contain 
 just MGS1 packs. Your goal is to use one of the two stairs to reach the
 second level, where the C4 is located.

 Second floor
 ------------
 You have access to the two bottom rooms, plus access to the stairs in
 the north. These stairs lead you to the three northern armory rooms on
 the first floor.

 If all you want is the C4, then enter the room to the left, grab the
 C4, then backtrack to the beginning of the map. If you want to get as
 many packs as possible, then pick up the MGS1 pack on the eastern side
 of the map. Then, follow the door north to get the Otacon pack, then
 proceed down the stairs to the first floor again.

 While you do this, you'll face with some patrol bots. They're a lot
 tougher then the guards, so make sure you're capable of killing one
 in one turn. If they detect you, Snake is in deep shit. The patrol bots
 have a huge detection range, so beware of that. There are also
 gun-camera on the floor. Fortunately, they're still relatively easy to
 kill compard to the patrol bots, so they shouldn't bother you too much.
 Just use the Aerial View Mode so you don't accidently run in their
 view.

 First floor again
 -----------------
 AN: You'll have to go back through the second floor to exit the Armory,
 as we don't have the keycard needed to exit out of this section of the
 first floor.

 The middle room has a MGS2 pack, and the right room has a MGS1 pack.
 In the right room, there are some detection laser beams in the middle,
 which require you to crawl under them. Considering this mission is
 really long, it would definitely be lame to alert the whole base because
 you ran into the beams.

 Return back to the beginning of the map. AN: If you do choose to go
 through the entire map to get all the packs, you're grade will likely
 drop due to the very high COST that piles up.
 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 03a: Ruins - Lower (2)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 We're back here again. Remember to have the C4 card in your deck. The
 game won't even allow you to enter the map without it.

 Unlike last time, you only have one guard to deal with on the second
 level. Eliminate him and the camera, and then continue adding cards to
 your hand until you have C4. If you are fortunate enough to have some
 Cyborg Ninja cards in your deck, then you can take out camera and guards
 as you wait for C4 to show up. Remember that the guard patrolling the
 southern part of the map can look north through a shattered wall and
 see you near the new wall.

 To prevent the loss of a nice movement card, note that the game will
 immediately cut to a scene after you move one square ahead of the
 destroyed wall. So don't go using a Running Man expecting to get
 across the map.

 Once your through the new wall, you'll likely have a guard or two to
 deal with. Once they're through, go up the nearby stairs and make your
 way to the MGS1 pack near the entrance to the Office.

 Also in front of the newly destructed wall is the Stinger card from
 MGS2. Then, continue east to the Residential Area. There is another
 Stinger at the very top of the map, but there's no need to get that
 at the moment.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 06: Residential Zone
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Proceed north and dispatch the guard. Enter the building, and a
 short cut-scene will occur with Alice. Ignore the first door you reach,
 and instead enter the room below it. Crawl under the laser barrier,
 and grab the MGS1 pack. The room at the very bottom also has a MGS1
 pack. Unless you have increased your total REST, it's unlikely you'll
 be able to enter this room without killing the nearby guard.

 Exit out the left building to the east. There is a item just north of
 you, but it's actually a real pain in the ass to get. Continue along
 the path and enter the middle building. The last door available leads
 into another room with a MGS1 pack. Exit out of this room, and exit
 the middle building through the northern door.

 From here, move Snake to the west, past the guard, then south into
 the Nikita Missile card. Now, return to the small bridge you crossed,
 and go down the ladder into the sewer, heading south. Go up the ladder
 once you reach the end of the sewer, then east across the bridge. Go
 into the middle building, and exit to the east (AN: the door to the west
 is empty). From here, continue to the eastern building. The game will
 stop a little short of the building with a cut-scene.

 Enter the left building, and approach the terminal. After the scene,
 Snake has access through the building's security. The middle room has a
 MGS1 pack, and the southern-most door leads you to Flemming.

 Escape!
 -------
 After the long cut-scene, you now find yourself with a partner Teliko.
 The goal is to exit to the north, which requires us to pass the LV.1
 yellow door. Teliko has the LV.1 Card, which is needed to get past it.
 AN: Yes, I realize that you actually have to draw the card, which can
 take awhile. Once you do have the card, have Teliko stand at the door
 to keep it open, and then have Snake come through.

 There are a number of things we need to do here. Three guards run after
 Snake and Teliko, which should be dispatched relatively easily. Teliko
 does not have WPN use cards like FAMAS, but rather, equip card weapons.
 This means you need to equip the weapon, then wait until that same card
 draws again to use it as ammo.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 07: BRC-026 (1)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 The first area of BRC-026 is fairly simple. Have Snake and Telika follow
 the wall west, then north, then east to the door. For the most part,
 you should easily slip past the guards in the area, as they tend to
 stand still for way too long. If the guard's view is blocking your path,
 just wait for him to turn. Go inside the northern door (with Snake),
 and proceed to the next area.

 To quote Snake, "[w]hat a nuisance." One character will have to move to
 a terminal, while the other goes through the newly unlocked door. And
 so on. Take Teliko into the western room, eliminate the guard, and then
 move to the terminal. With Snake, enter through the Security A door,
 and take out the guard (you may need to wait until you land an Action +
 card to kill him in one round.

 One Snake is at the Security B terminal, move Teliko to the Security
 B door. At this point, we have a number of options. Going east takes us
 to a LV.2 door, which we don't have its respectful card key yet. This
 leaves two rooms and the Security C door.

 Have Teliko enter the eastern door. Take out the guard, and use the
 Security A terminal so that Snake can leave the room he is in. Then,
 move Teliko to the Security B terminal in the same room so Snake has
 access in the same area. From here, have either Snake or Teliko enter
 into the western room (through the door on the east side, next to the
 Security C door), and access the Security C terminal. There is a guard
 in here.

 Using whoever you left to pass the Security C door, go east to access
 another Security C terminal so that you can have the partners together
 at last. The 'Exit' door the very west leads to nothing, despite the
 fact that it can be opened. The two doors on the north both lead to
 the same, large room with some stairs. Two guards patrol the area.

 To continue to the next area, both Teliko and Snake need to be on one
 of the bullseyes.

 In this final area, have one of the characters use the eastern door
 to gain access to the Security D terminal. There is a MGS2 pack located
 in here. Once the D door is open, move the other character to gain 
 access to the Security E terminal. Then, use Snake (I had him go get
 access to the Security D terminal) to move north. There is another
 Security D terminal in this room, which allows Teliko to exit out of
 the room she's in. Then, have Snake open up the F doors using the
 terminal in the same room he's in.

 With the F doors open, use Teliko to take the western F door. Take
 the first door north, and use the terminal so that Snake can follow.
 Go through the narrow hallway, then proceed north until you hit another
 door heading south. There are two MGS2 packs in here. Dispatch of the
 guard outside, and then move Teliko and Snake onto the bullseyes again.

 This mission just keeps going. Fortunately, we're done with the 
 Security doors. Move north through the double doors, into another large
 hangar-type area. It can be difficult to get past the guards, while
 going down the stairs. A lot of times, they can be alerted to you.
 There isn't much you can do about it, other then to make sure you keep
 a few options for weapons. Keep a FAMAS or two, or some ammo for a USP
 to make sure you can eliminate any threat before alert mode hits.

 Go west once you're down on floor level, and follow the hallway back to
 where we first were originally. There are two MGS2 packs on each side
 of this large room, but the ultimate goal is to continue south, through
 the door, then west at the fork. AN: There is a LV.2 door if you go
 south at the fork, and I figure this is a short-cut back to the 
 beginning of the level. Ignore the door to the west, and instead,
 take the door to the south. Have Snake approach the ladder to finish
 the mission.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 07: BRC-026 (2)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Boss Time!
 ----------
 Return back to BRC-026 (nothing on the map select is different). When
 you enter, Leone will drop uninvited. This begins the game's first
 boss fight, although the same rules and strategies apply.

 Forget about taking Leone head-to-head. To me, it seemed like he was
 able to evade anything I threw at him, and usually countered with his
 attack (which takes off about 100 HP!).

 Immediately, split up Snake and Teliko. Leone will follow one of them,
 which leaves the other to get behind him and chip away. This is much
 harder then it sounds, as Leone has no trouble moving his attention
 between the two.

 Throw grenades and blow them up with your own weapons for some good
 damage. Additionally, you can use the explosive barrels to take off 
 around 150 HP and put him on fire. Being burned sucks and can take off
 a significant chunk of HP. When I first fought Leone, I actually
 managed to kill Leone by a 142 HP damage from him being burned.
 
 With these strategies, you shouldn't have too much trouble with Leone.
 As you approach the end of the battle, start stocking up on some cards.
 Even if this means you'll delay victory for a few rounds, you'll be
 glad to have a hand of cards after the battle, as Snake and Teliko will
 be forced to flee BRC-026 from about 10 guards.

 Escape... again!
 ----------------
 After Leone is beaten, you'll be back in the first area with the
 Security doors and terminals. Fortunately, they're all open for you to
 pass, but you now have around 10 Genome Soldiers approaching you. In
 fact, a guard even starts right behind you.

 You can try plowing your way through the guards, but if you aren't in
 good shape after Leone, you may find yourself in trouble. All the guards
 have Body Armor, so you'll usually need more than a simple FAMAS to
 take them out. If you're well equipped, you should have no problem
 making your way to the exit. The exit is that door I originally noted
 for leading nowhere. It now leads to our goal.

 The guards tend to bunch up, so if you can manage any type of explosive
 attacks will greatly help. If you have a well-equipped deck, you can
 make a run all the way to the exit on one turn (using high BLK movement
 cards and COST reduction cards along the way).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 03b: Ruins - Upper
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 This is the upper section of the Ruins we were here earlier. If you
 didn't get it earlier, the Stinger (MGS1) on the south end is available
 again. Outside of the usual Genome Soldiers and Patrol Bots, we now have a new
 enemy to worry about: the flying bots. With only 60 LIFE, your biggest
 worry with them is their large view range.

 If you choose to use Teliko to go north, note that there are some laser
 detectors in the square just north of her. You'll have to use a card to
 move in place so you can crawl under.

 I like to follow the northern wall; you don't have to worry about any
 of the machines, and there are a lot of obstacles to use to hide
 yourself. You should have a couple of Stealth cards from the MGS2 pack,
 which helps things greatly.

 You need both Teliko and Snake to finish the level on the west end.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 08: Drawbridge
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Our objective is to cross the drawbridge to the north. Just north of
 your current position, there is a MGS2 pack outside the small building.
 There is nothing in the building, so continue across the drawbridge.
 While you're moving along, stock up on weapon and defensive cards
 for some action coming up.

 When you reach halfway across, a short cut-scene will occur. With the
 drawbridge raised, return back to that empty building. As you approach
 that, the damn thing blows up. Shiat.

 After some more dialog, take out the four soldiers. Once they're gone,
 the mission's objectives change. Move to the bullseyes to the west.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 04b: Minefield - Upper
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Remember to add the Mine D. card in your deck, as hitting a mine can
 really make this level interesting.

 A Stealth card can really make this level easy. Truth be told, it's
 probably the difference between a S grade and a C grade. There are
 a decent amount of guards patrolling the area, so it's hard to 
 manuever past them without any help.

 If you forget about the mine detector, then expect a mine on any type
 of shortcut past guards. If you see an available path that lets you
 easily pass a few guard, then it's probably too good to be true.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 09: Ebro Tower (1)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Before you head north, go south and grab the MGS1 pack under the
 gun-camera. If you walk right under it, it should not detect you. This
 saves you with wasting a WPN card to destroy it.

 After the cut-scene, your objective is changed. Now, you need to find
 a uniform so that the 'clown' soldiers won't shoot you down. As you saw
 from the scene, red won't shoot red, green won't shoot green, and so on.

 Careful with the green guard on top. For the most part, he can't
 detect you at the lower level, but he can detect if you're on the very
 northern wall.

 Use the southeast door to gain access to a green uniform. The southwest
 door has the blue and green uniforms. With all three uniforms obtained,
 return to the entrance of the factory; you need to put the cards in
 your deck.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 09: Ebro Tower (2)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Ok, back at Ebro Tower. Make sure you have the C4 and uniforms in
 your deck, or Roger won't allow you to continue on the mission.

 From the start, go north through the door, then east into the room with
 the green uniform. Use the NW corner to hide and wait until you can
 run past the soldier and use the crawl space to move into the northern
 room.

 Once you do that, go across the room towards where the red guard is 
 (and where some stairs are). This part can get interesting. The green
 guard up on top can detect you at some squares (although I think you
 will only get the ? alert, and he'll forget about you. The red guard
 on the other hand, can be difficult. He's easy to run past if he's
 on the northern part of his patrol, but he can also be blocking you if
 he's stuck on the southern part of the patrol. Stealth works wonders
 here, or you can use Uniform-R.

 As you go up the stairs, switch to Uniform-G so the guard can't detect
 you. Before going down the ladder, go inside the nearby room. Crawl
 under the sensors, then activate the terminal. Apparently, there is
 a hidden room, which will require the C4 Alice suggested we bring to
 open up. 

 Now, and go down the ladder in the middle of the catwalk. You must kill
 the guard here, so make sure you have the cards to do so. You might have
 to wait numerous rounds so you can get a clear shot from behind. He will
 be equipped with a Front Evade LV.2 After he's dead, continue to the 
 other side, up the ladder, and then use the only available door. To
 get to the MGS2 pack, you'll have to use a Hang card (Manifest). Also,
 Solid Snake from MGS2 (Ferguson).

 There is a blue guard in this room. Undoubtedly, you have drawn the
 Uniform-B card, so use it to make your life in here easy. There are
 some laser sensors here, so crawl under them as you make it to the MGS2
 pack in here. Exit out of the door once you've retrieved this, then 
 move to the north wall to trigger some dialog with Roger. Careful with
 the soldier in this room; if you're crawling through the laser sensors,
 and he sees you, Snake's cover is blown.

 Once your back outside in the main room, walk to the northern wall,
 and Roger will tell you to put the C4 here. If you have not activated
 the terminal earlier, this will not come up. Instead, Roger will tell
 you to back to the terminal. Place the C4 on the ground, then blow it 
 up. Walk through the hole, then finally towards the elevator after
 another scene.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 09: Ebro Tower (3)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Make sure you have the Mine D. card in your deck!!!!

 Out of the elevator, proceed south through the door. This place looks
 a little intimidating at first, but isn't all too bad once you get
 things down. Having the Mine D. really helps as well.

 To begin with, let me describe what each colored panel does.

 Blue - Increases defense
 Yellow - Refreshes hand
 Red - Increases attack
 Green - Increases hit rate

 The yellow panel is really the only one you need to worry about. A new
 hand can be good, or it can be downright nasty. If you have the hand to
 defeat Clown, double-check that you don't accidently land on a yellow
 panel!

 While you're moving towards Clown, she'll be dropping down more 
 claymores on the map. She likes to trap you in between claymores, so
 you're forced to get hit by one. Use big-time damage cards like grenades
 or a Nikita Missile. The Nikita is ideal, because you will set clown on
 fire, which does ridiculous damage. Just remember once she's burned, not
 to get close to her! 

 After you defeat Clown, some more cut-scenes will occur.

 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 10: Rope Bridge (1)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 The rope bridge is patrolled by U.A.V. Cyphers, meaning there is no
 way for Snake and Teliko to cross undetected. Snake suggests looking
 for a sniper rifle in the armory, west of the office. Roger agrees.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 05: Armory (2)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Before entering the Armory, put in the LV.1 and LV.2 card keys in your
 deck. Doing so makes you life significantly easier in this level. If
 you recall, there were doors you could not pass without these cards.
 For the most part, this didn't prevent you from exploring the whole
 level, but it required you take the long way.

 Walk into the hall from the lobby, and a short scene will occur. There
 are now more difficult guard here, with 100 LIFE. However, most do not
 carry any equipment on, so in some ways they're a little easier. Since
 it's been awhile, careful that you don't forget about the cameras!

 On the first floor, the southwest door requires Card LV.1 to open. Since
 you should have two (one for each character), I sent Teliko to open 
 the door and get the goodies inside. Snake went north, as the Card LV.2
 comes into play, and Snake is likely the only one with the card.

 The SW room has a MGS2 pack, and the NW room, which requires Card LV.2
 has a MGS3 pack. After you get both of these, use the northern stairs.

 When you reach the second floor, the NE room has two PSG-1 cards. The
 NW room, which also requires the Card LV.2 has two more PSG-1 cards and
 a MGS2 pack.

 I found this level to be a real pain. It's long, so it requires a lot
 of moving. Secondly, if you only have one Card LV.2, you'll have to go
 through your entire deck to get it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 10: Robe Bridge (2)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Remember to get rid of the card keys you used for the Armory, and also
 add the four PSG-1's you retrieved. You can give two to each character,
 or all four to one. In my opinion, it's best to give all four cards to
 one character, as it will speed up the process of destroying the Cyphers
 quite a bit. But note that you can now purchase the rifle from the MGS1
 pack in the card shop, so theoretically, you could load up both Snake
 and Teliko with four a piece.

 Once in the map, realize that there are five total cyphers. Which
 means you'll either have to reshuffle your deck to take out the last,
 or use conventional weapons. Some of the cyphers will eventually move
 onto where Snake and Teliko start.

 Once the PSG-1 cards start coming in, just move onto the bridge and
 take out the cyphers. Remember that after you make your move, and are
 selecting which direction to look, a orange arrow will appear above the
 cypher if you can attack it on your next turn.

 Once all the cyphers are destroyed, a cut-scene will occur. Afterwards,
 your objective will be changed slightly. Before we can enter FAR, we
 need to go to the Power Plant.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 11a: Mountains
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Before we reach the Power Plant, we need to go through the mountains.
 Load up on stealth and movement cards if you have been building up on
 your deck. No need to kill the guards if you can run right past them.
 The Running Man card from the Chronicle Pack, if you haven't already
 gotten one, is fantastic for this type of mission. And like the Rope 
 Bridge, this is another great level to have four PSG-1 cards lying in
 your deck.

 There are a few WPN cards on the ground, so again, I emphasize stealth
 and movement. Careful for the guard on his flying contraption; at 180
 LIFE, he can take a pounding. However, he doesn't patrol like most
 guards, and he can't see below where he is flying, so take that as your
 cue to not bother with them. There is a Nikita Missile card at that 
 first western path up a hill, which will require a Stealth Card so
 he won't see you (or a 4 REST).

 AN: The flying guard sees essentially everything north of the shack
 you'll run into early in the map. Once you head east towards the 
 bridges, you'll be okay. A Stinger (MGS2) is located near two soldiers,
 along with a flying guard looking beyond the cliff east of them. For
 grade purposes, it definitely is not worth trying to get the card, as
 you need to kill both guards together (or they will call for help if
 one dies), and the flying guard can see you approach the more northern
 guard.

 Whether or not you decide to go after the Stinger, you need to go west,
 then south up a hill and cross the two bridges. Despite how it looks,
 it should be fairly easy to cross them without being detected by the
 guards patrolling this last path of the map. Again, the PSG-1 works
 wonders here. But the game rewards stealthy-play, so your best bet is
 that wonderful Stealth card from the MGS2 pack.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 12: Outside FAR (1)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 You need to move directly east across the outer edges of FAR to reach
 the Power Plant.

 In the three smaller buildings, there is a MGS2 pack (except for the
 SE building, which has a MGS1 pack). In the larger building in the 
 center of the map, you will find a Chronicle Pack. None of the buildings
 have any laser sensors tricks, so decide now if the card packs are worth
 the extra time, COST, and possible detection.

 Lets use south for now. Move down against the vehicles, and wait for
 the two guards nearby to reach the northern part of their patrol. This
 allows you to run clear across to the eastern side of the map. You will
 approach a guard at this end, and you can attempt to dodge him by 
 moving north, using the vehicles east of the big building in the center
 to hide. 

 From there, run east to the bullseyes.

 A really, really easy way to beat this is to load up on PSG-1s, and kill
 away. Or, put three or four stealth cards in makes this equally easy.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 13: Power Plant (1)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Wow, I'm not quite sure what to say for this opening section of the
 Power Plant. Even with PSG-1s, it's hard to get out of here undetected,
 because the guards are so close together.

 Outside of waiting for a couple of Stealth and movement cards (along
 with Action+ cards), I don't know how to get past here without being
 alerted.  There is one MGS2 pack, and one Chronicles Pack. Of the many
 aspects of the game, I'm curious to see what you readers have on this
 part of the level.

 Onto the second section of the plant. The key is to go up the stairs
 and reach the bullseyes on the north part of the area. Grab the MSG2
 pack nearby, and go up the only available stairs (as you further 
 inspect the area, most of the paths are blocked by obstacles). Go up
 the stairs, then turn north, west, north, and down the stairs

 Once down the stairs, proceed east to another set of stairs. Before you
 do so, go north to find a MGS1 pack. Once up the stairs, go south
 to reach a Chronicle Pack, but your ultimate goal is north to where the
 bullseyes are.

 Again, this is another difficult area, because everything is so 
 cramped. Without Stealth cards, you may be in trouble. I figure PSG-1s
 would rule again.

 In the following area, you'll run into another long corridor. If you
 have it, a grenade works perfectly to kill off the four guards all
 bunched up in front of you. If you don't, let them continue to move
 forward until they get close to the explosive barrel.

 Once the group of four are dead, you only have to worry about two other
 guards, one on each catwalk on the side. There is a MGS2 (in center
 area) and a Chronicle Pack (on west catwalk) located here. At the end
 of the hall, you'll find another set of bullseyes.

 Nikita Missile away!
 --------------------
 To begin with, don't bother with the laser sensors to the east, and
 instead, go around the thing in the middle from the west. Dispatch of
 the guards, then fire a Nikita or RC Missile down the electrified hall
 north. Take a west, then continue until you run into a guard. As far
 as I know, I was unable to get the missile past the guard, as he would
 detect it and blow it up. So kill the guard, and use another RC or
 Nikita Missile card, following the same path. After where you killed the
 guard, take a short south, then west, and finally north into the
 switchboard.

 After this is destroyed, the whole place will be alerted. Fortunately,
 you should be stocked on some movement cards, so go down the newly
 unelectrified hall. Just when the previous electrified hall meets 
 regular stone ground, there is a door that has a Chronicles Pack inside.

 Continue along this new path, until you run into a copy of the room you
 entered. The southwest corner has a Stinger (MGS2) card. Move whoever
 has a missile card to the east wall, and position them so they're one
 square west of the hole on that wall. There is a small passage that
 leads back to where you started. This allows us to get some elevation
 to the missile, so that it can destroy the second switchboard.

 Make sure there are no guards around left from the alert to detect
 your missile. Keep it east into the second electrified floor, and go
 north once you see another passage high up on the wall (about halfway
 down the hall).

 With the second switchboard destroyed, walk down the new path, then
 head north towards the control room. You can skip the first laser 
 sensors on the west wall, but a few squares north of you there is
 another, non-skippable sensor. Crawl under it, then continue to the
 bullseyes.

 There is a Chronicle Pack in the center of the room. Your best bet
 is to take one of the catwalks. Destroying a patrol bot doesn't count
 as a "kill," so it doesn't hurt your score. I don't believe it is
 possible to get through here undetected without doing this specific
 strategy.

 The Final Stretch
 -----------------
 Here, Snake and Teliko need to split up. Each need to move north into
 their respective door/path. At this point in this map, just kill 
 whatever obstacle you run into. It's just not worth the extra time
 to try and figure out how to do so (if it can even be done).

 The terminal that Snake reaches unlocks the door to the room Teliko's
 path leads to. Have Teliko approach the terminal in that room, and
 this opens the door to a room with a Stinger (MGS2) card along Snake's
 path. Once Snake has the card, Teliko can exit out of this room and
 continue along her path. Directly west of the room with the Stinger is
 a Chronicle Pack that Snake can pick up.

 Continue with Teliko until you run into another terminal. Then, back
 with Snake, continue until you can reach the room that Teliko unlocked.
 Along the way, you'll run into a separate room that has a MSG2 pack.
 After Snake reaches his terminal, take control of Teliko and have
 her go all the way towards the control room. After Teliko is through
 the gate (next to the terminal she was at), Snake can continue along his
 path the control room as well.

 Once one of you characters reach the door into the control room, the
 mission will finally end. Ugh.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 13: Power Plant (2)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 This level is hard. The game suggests using the Therm. G. card, but I
 didn't find it as helpful. COST reduction cards and high movement stuff
 is always the way to go in mu opinion. For those anal about getting an
 S score, there IS a lot of leeway with regards to total COST used,
 LIFE taken, and kills.

 Return back to the Power Plant. With the lights out, your field of 
 vision will be limited, and you won't be able to see guards further
 away. To make things simple, just have Snake and Teliko go back through
 their respective passes on this section of the Power Plant.

 Teliko will run into a guard just as she is going down the first pair
 of stairs on her path. Additionally, once she passes the gate opened
 by Snake, a guard or two may be near enough to detect. The first guard
 Snake will encounter is down the stairs after he passes through the
 door opened up by Teliko. A second guard he will encounter is the first
 terminal Snake accessed when we first entered this area.

 In the following section, you have two choices: go through the middle,
 or take the catwalks. By taking the catwalk, you need to deal with a
 Patrol Bot, which has a better view of vision. But by going through the
 middle, you'll need to destroy the explosive barrels to get through.

 In the electrified floor room, remember to dodge the laser sensors
 near the exit. At the very end of this section, go under the laser 
 sensor just east of the bullseyes, as guards patrol the other section
 of this area.

 The next corridor in very similar to the one we were just in, minus
 the patrol bots on the catwalk. Have each character go on one of the
 catwalks, and kill the guard ahead north. If you can conserve COST,
 make a run with Snake and Teliko to the bullseye. You will be detected,
 but the guards won't be able to call for help.

 The last area of the map requires you to kill about five ACUA troops,
 the toughest guards in the game. Still, normal strategies work against
 them. If there's one piece of sound advice that I could give you, it
 would be to keep Snake and Teliko together, and isolate the guards to
 go on 2-on-1. There are a few explosive barrels to use, but be careful:
 they will use the barrels against you as well.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 12: Outside FAR (2)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Get at least one Stealth card on Snake and Teliko. Like the last time
 we were here, take the southern route to the western wall. They two
 guards in the west end tend to group together in the north, leaving
 us free to reach the west wall. There is still one guard to deal with,
 and of course, it's up to you how you want to proceed. If you have
 enough 4BLK movement cards, you can run past him pretty easily. Or the
 Stealth card works. Or you can just kill him.

 Once you approach the NW building, search for the square three squares 
 down and one square west of the building's door. Use this diagram if
 you need help. 

                      NW Building's
                        door
                        +-=-+
                        |   |
                        |   |
                        |---|
                        |   |
                        |   |
                    +---+---+
                    | X |   |
                    | X |   |
                    +---+---+

 Assume that the XX is one bullseye, and all the squares around it 
 represent another bullseye. Once Snake and Teliko are near the manhole,
 the mission ends.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 14: FAR
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 There are a number of cards you'll need for this mission.

 Move south down the hall, and destroy the gun-camera in the corner.
 Turn east, and destroy the gun-camera on the nearby wall. The patrol
 bot should not interfere with you. Nonetheless, you'll want to kill the
 bot off, as we'll be needing to use a guided missile in this part of
 the map.

 Once the patrol bot is destroyed, go north at the fork to the 
 electrified floor. Before you fire a Nikita or RC Missile, use a sniper
 rifle to take out the gun camera at the very north end. While you're
 waiting for a Nikita or RC card to show up, continue east, then north 
 down a narrow hall. Careful for the gun-camera in the corner. There is
 a MGS2 card in the following room.

 For simplicity's sake, let's say Snake is firing a Nikita Missile. Of
 the two square wide electric floor, have Snake stand on the more eastern
 one. Shoot the missile, and have it go north, then east two squares
 when you have to change directions. Continue going north until you hit
 the wall, then west, then north into the vent on the wall. Once you're
 through the vent, just head south into the switchboard.

 With the floor un-electrified, have Snake head down, grabbing the
 Chronicle Pack as he nears the terminal in the room. There are two
 gun-cameras located here, but they should be easily dispatched. Once
 the terminal is accessed, the southern door near the bullseyes will be
 opened. Move both Teliko and Snake on their respective bullseye to move
 to the next section.

 Second Area
 -----------
 This part of the mission is essentially a 3 x 3 square map. Doors or
 destroyable walls separate each square/room.

 Go through the west door, and use C3 or C4 to destroy the the northern
 wall. This will alert the guards, so don't bother with stealth in this
 mission. 

 Grab the MGS1 and Chronicle Pack while you eliminate the half-dozen or
 so guards that will rush after you blow up the wall with C4. Blow up 
 the second wall to the north to get a MGS1 and MGS2 pack. Return back
 to the middle of the west rooms, and enter the center room. Go north,
 destroy the gun-camera, and walk onto the bullseyes. Mission Complete.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 14-1: FAR: B3F
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Despite the fact he's certified crazy, Leone remains the same boss we
 all know and love from much earlier in the game. Yes, the extra guards
 to help him out is kind of annoying, but your overall fire-power should
 blow them out of the water in no time. In particular, the Gun del Sol
 and Nikita/RC Missles work wonders. Not only do they do big damage, but
 they also burn, which causes significant damage over a few rounds.

 Other then that, Sniper rifles + grenades + blowing up the explosive
 barrels will slowly chip away at his mammoth 1500 LIFE.

 Remember to eliminate the lackies first, as they can just cause trouble
 while you're dodging Leone's tough attacks. And forget about going to
 head-to-head with Leone; he'll dodge everything you throw at him. Get
 behind him!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 14-2: FAR: B4F
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 The goal of this mission is to drop down to floor level and reach the
 bullseyes to the south. To make things simple, there is one MGS2 pack
 in the entire map, just north of your starting position. And let me
 be the first person to say, "wow!." For a semi-difficult game, the
 last few levels in the game are awfully easy.

 There is a simple and hard way to do this level. If you have tons of
 Climb cards, have Teliko and Snake climb on the blocks near the 
 entrance, then down the nearby stairs. The bullseyes are just east of
 there.

 Without the climb cards, you'll have to head north on this second floor
 before you can gain access to another stair-case to the first floor.
 Not much you can about it, unless you have the Climb cards. The guards
 are the same as they've been for awhile now.

 Was it just me, or did the door to the bullseyes not open until you 
 killed a certain amount of enemies? 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 14-3: FAR: B5F
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Here, we'll face Clown again. She is still dressed as Teliko, so you'll
 have to be the distinction on who's who. Later, even more Teliko 
 clones will show up; it isn't out of the ordinary to have five total
 Teliko's on the map at one time!

 To make things harder, the good Teliko will be computer-controlled,
 although I noticed I would get some turns with her. From the looks of
 it, it appeared to be completely random.

 To find who is who, use the Aerial View Mode by using the Triangle
 button. Clown has a total of 800 LIFE. The good Teliko has a 400 LIFE,
 and the clones have 60 LIFE.

 During the match, Clown will throw a flash grenade, which repositions
 everyone. This can get real annoying, as usually you just have Snake
 to make your attacks. And if Clown is on the other side of the map,
 there's nothing you can do. Fortunately, Clown's attack pale in
 comparison to Leone. Where a head-to-head show down was suicide with
 Leone, I recommend getting into Clown's face and beating the shit out
 of her.

 To do this, use anything that will burn her. Gun del Sol and the 
 Nikita/RC Missiles are the common cards most people have in their deck.
 Once Clown is burn, her life will slowly go down, regardless if Snake
 can hit her while she uses her flash grenade. Also, Sniper Rifles 
 clearly have the advantage here. 

 With Clown gone, the last level of the game is unlocked. If you plan
 on beating the game, but you want access to the whole map to gain PTS,
 then keep a separate save file when you beat the game. Although there
 is a New Game+ feature in the game, you won't have access to the later
 maps to earn PTS, like Outside FAR. It takes roughly ~6hours to reach
 this point in the game on your second play-through.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Stage 14-4: ???
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 After defeating Metal Gear, you will be given the option to save a
 Clear Game Data. If you do so, remember that you won't have access to
 the better maps to earn PTS.

 Snake needs any type of long-range, high-damage weapons. This includes
 sniper rifles (particularly Mosin Nagant), Stingers, and tons of
 Jonathon Ingrams, Cost -12s, and Cost -8s. 

 Teliko will need at least four strong healing cards (+300), along with
 FAMAS, Gun del Sol, and Sniper Rifles. Cyborg Ninja is also nice to have
 for the second phase. Additionally, Ally COST cards are very helpful.
 Once the first phase of Metal Gear is done, Teliko really becomes
 unnecessary; reducing Snake's COST can really help speed up the battle.

 How to kill Metal Gear
 ----------------------
 Snake faces Metal Gear, while Teliko destroys the inner sections of
 the mad machine to help out Snake. At the beginning of the fight, there
 is nothing for Snake to do except dodge the guided missiles until 
 Teliko does her job. Teliko needs to destroy the two 500 LIFE terminals,
 while taking damage from a roid-powered patrol bot. Don't bother killing
 the bot; another one will just replace it instantly.

 When one of the terminals are destroyed, the armor protecting that 
 side's respective arm is destroyed, allowing Snake to beat the shit out
 of that side. When one terminal is destroyed, move to the second. Rinse
 and repeat. A good idea, and one I mentioned already, is to give Teliko
 a bunch of healing cards, as she will take a decent chunk of damage
 from the bot.

 With the terminals destroyed, let Snake unleash his Stingers to destroy
 each of the 500 LIFE arms.

 *** You don't actually have to use Teliko to destroy the terminals.
 When Metal Gear pops out its rockets, Snake has 10 COST to fire at
 Metal Gear without Teliko's help (Joshua Ulm). I like using the terminal
 strategy, just because you'll have to use Teliko anyway.

 After the arms are destroyed, Metal Gear enters into his second form
 (SEE:Metal Gear's attack arsenal for atk description), which is
 significantly easier.

 Second Phase
 ------------
 Teliko's part in this phase is completely worthless. Outside of having
 the perfect six cards in your deck, there is just no way to destroy all
 four rods to stop the beam attack. I just had her kill the bot over
 again, cuz I was bored ^^;

 Snake on the other hand, has a lot to do. Keep close to Metal Gear,
 while stocking up on your Mosin Nagant and Stingers. When Metal Gear
 is charging up its beam, fire away, then run behind it. COST reduction
 cards are extremely helpful, and allow you to take that extra few turns
 to take out the 1000 LIFE on one round.

 Keep track of Metal Gear's COST. The beam attack only takes off 
 300 LIFE, so in my opinion, it's worth getting that extra Stinger off
 just so that you have one less attack to do.


 Metal Gear's attack arsenal
 --------------------------
 When Metal Gear uses its guided missile attack, you can use the Aerial
 View Mode to see where the missiles will hit (squares in red). You can
 do this when Metal Gear has to wait 10 COST before the missiles are
 fired. Obviously, if Snake doesn't have a turn within this 10 COST,
 then you won't be able to see where the missiles are going to hit. When
 Teliko destroys the terminals inside Metal Gear, the tank loses four
 of the missiles it fires (so destroy both and it can't use this attack).

 Remember that the guided missile's explosion is 3x3.

 There is also a "crotch-beam" that Metal Gear uses when you get too 
 close to it in the first phase (Ghost Freeman). I don't believe it
 uses the attack during the second phase, however.

 Once the two arms are destroyed, Metal Gear will begin using a charge
 beam-type weapon. After 20 COST, it fires a blast of energy that covers
 practically any square ahead of Metal Gear. As far as I know, you have
 to be behind it to dodge it. The attack itself reduces LIFE by 300.

 There is one way to stop the attack, but it is really tough. Within that
 20 COST, Teliko can destroy the four rods that charge the beam inside
 Metal Gear. They each have 40 LIFE, so the reason for the difficulty
 is trying to get four weapons off within such a small COST limit. Cyborg
 Ninja helps a lot, because it can grab that one rod that is further
 away from the others. Without Ninja, you actually have to move the
 three or four squares to positon yourself there. Add in the fact that
 the patrol bot will proabbly be in your way, and the odds aren't in
 favor of you killing all four rods.

=========================================================================
4) CARD LIST
=========================================================================

 With a total of 204 cards, Metal Gear Ac!d is packed. I am dividing up
 this section in tens, so that you can find a card a little easier. To
 search, ranges are from 001-010, and 011-020 and so on. I'd like to
 add comments for each card, but we'll see...

 If you find yourself nearing the magical 200 card mark, then it's
 likely you are missing a few rare cards. Super-rares, for lack of a
 better name, are the yellow-tinted cards.

 II. Story
 =======================================================================
 (from the game's manual)

 The year is 2016. The place... somewhere over the United States.

 Flight 326, a jumbo passenger jet flying at 35,000 feet, has been
 hijacked - perpetrator unknown. The plane is laden with vecuronium
 bromide - a muscle relaxant which can be fatal to humans if ingested
 in excess. All 517 passengers aboard Flight 326 have been paralyzed
 by the noxious vecuronium fumes and rumor has it that Senator Hach, a
 major presidential candiate in the upcoming elections, is sitting among
 them.

 The setting changes to Lobito Island in the Moloni Republic - a small 
 country situated in the southern part of Africa. Lobito Physics and
 Chemistry Lab facilities located there are being guarded by an unknown
 militia group. One man can be seen standing at the island's shores.

 That man is none other than Solid Snake.

 The hijacker of Flight 326 has demanded one thing - the prompt delivery
 of "Pythagoras." The U.S. government ran a criminal investigation on the
 hijacker, as well as a hunt for the meaning of the word "Pythagoras,'
 only to find out it is the name of a research project being conducted
 on Lobito Island.

 The Moloni government refused to cooperate with the U.S., insisted that
 foreign governments have no right to get involved in their country's
 internal affairs. Having lost patience with uncooperative Moloni
 Republic officials, the U.S. government dispatched an HRT special
 forces unit to the island to investigate. The unit was then attacked
 by a militia group stationed there, setting the entire mission in 
 jeopardy and cutting off all communications. Ironically, this incident
 provided the perfect opportunity to uncover the details of the top
 secret research being conducted at Lobito Physics and Chemistry Lab.

 In desperation, the U.S. government has no other option but to call on
 one of their retired agents - that agent being none other than the 
 legendary mercenary, Solid Snake.

 The hijacker's patience is running thin and time is running out. The
 search for answers takes place within a secret research facility on the
 remote island of Lobito - where things aren't always as they seem. Solid
 Snake accepts his calling in a fresh, new fight for justice.

 III. CQC Combos
 =======================================================================

 To use CQC, equip one of the four CQC cards in the game (throw, kick,
 punch, and rush), then use one of the six available CQC combo cards.
 The six include the four I just mention, and then the Boss and Naked
 Snake. These last two cards do a random combo.

 So basically, we have a base card equipped, then a secondary card that
 acts as "ammo". A different ammo creates a different combo. The non-
 high damage combos are best for their faint effect.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
   combo:                description:
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Punch + Punch    Punch-Punch; causes fall and some damage
  Punch + Kick     Punch-Kick; causes fall and some damage
  Punch + Rush     Punch-Punch-Kick; causes fall and nice damage
  Punch + Throw    Throw guard face up

  Kick + Kick      Spinning kick
  Kick + Punch     Kick-Punch; causes some damage
  Kick + Throw     Throw guard on floor; causes bleeding and fall
  Kick + Rush      Punch-Knee-Kick; causes big damage

  Throw + Throw    Throw guard on floor; causes faint
  Throw + Punch    Throw guard face first; causes faint and damage
  Throw + Kick     Kick guard while he's down; causes faint, and bleeding
  Throw + Rush     Slams guard down; destroys equipment

  Rush + Rush      Throat Slit; causes instant death
  Rush + Punch     Punch-Punch-Knee; causes some damage    
  Rush + Kick      Knee-Punch-Kick; causes some damage
  Rush + Throw     Slams down guard; causes fall and bleeding

 IV. Need Help?
 =======================================================================
 
 These tips are some suggestions that will help you through the game.
 I don't believe I'm particularly good with the game, but this advice
 helped me through the tougher parts.

 * With regards to fighting/killing enemies, always try to move as close
 as possible, and to the side or back. Your distance from the enemy
 affects hit %, and attacking from the side gives you a 1.2 damage
 bonus, while attacking from the back gives you a 1.5 bonus! Doing little
 things like this will make the difference killing the guard with just
 one card.

 * Look at every card in your deck. There are 200 total cards in the
 game, and it's easy to lose track of some good ones. Experiment with
 different style decks (just create a new save file so you don't lose
 your current one) to find unique decks. The beautiful thing about a
 card game is there really is no one, specific deck that beats everything
 out.

 * The triangle button makes your life easy in two ways. While the enemy
 is making their turns, press Triangle to move to Quick Mode, and make
 those buggers finish up. In the options mode in Intermission, you can
 turn this mode on so you don't have to press triangle.

 * Also, pressing Triangle while you view your hand brings you to the
 Aerial View Mode. I think I say enough of this mode during the actual
 walkthrough, but this mode definitely has huge strategic value. A lot
 of times, its hard to see where a guard is with the in-game camera,
 so the Aerial View Mode is helpeful in that way.

 * I like Outside FAR as the best map to gain PTS on. The "stealth"
 mission is about as easy as it comes. The other, "kill-all" mission
 is a bit harder, as you have to kill the one guard at the entrance of
 FAR. Use a Sniper, or use stealth to walk up to him. If you haven't
 reached Outside FAR, then Minefield-Lower is my second favorite level.

 V. FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
 =======================================================================

 Q. How is this game related to the MG storyline?
 A. MGA has no relation to the true Metal Gear storyline, seen through
    the original Metal Gear games on the MSX, and the 'Solid' series on
    the Playstation consoles. There are a number of events that occur
    in MGA that confirm this.
   
    First, Shadow Moses did not occur. Snake is pulled out of retirement
    from Roger fairly easily. There is no way the true Snake would do
    this so easily if Shadow Moses and the events after had occured.

    Secondly, if MGA is in the timeline, why isn't Snake in some anti-
    Metal Gear organization, like Philanthropy? The game takes place in
    2017, which is a few years after the events in MGS2. Why would Snake
    chase after Ocelot at the end of MGS2, then be back in retirement 
    years later?

    This is purely speculation, but I also got the feeling that Snake
    looked younger then he should. According to MGS3, Snake was born in
    1972, making him 55 for MGA. He looks old, but not 55 old.

    And lastly, there is no ****ing way that the wuss portrayed in MGA is
    the same 'Legendary Hero' that owns in the 'Solid' series. The true
    Snake would never for a second think he's Hans Davis. Worst use of
    a plot twist ever.

 Q. But Snake's experiences in the Metal Gears from the MSX are 
    mentioned. Doesn't that mean MGA takes place in the same universe?
 A. It seems the MSX Metal Gears are canon for both universes. From the
    above question, there are simply too many questions to believe MGA is
    in the same universe as the 'Solid' games and we'll leave it at that.
  
    That said, with MGS4 and MGA^2 not _that_ far from the future, we'll
    know soon enough what is canon and what isn't canon. 

 Q. I am in my first game, and I don't have Card LV.2. How do I get it?
 A. I get this question a lot, and I have not been able to pinpoint where
    people are messing up. My best guess is that you're skipping a 
    certain map. Did you go to the Rope Bridge first, then to the Armory,
    or did you skip the Rope Bridge map already knowing you'd need the
    Sniper? 

    Additionally, the card may be sitting in your deck. Other then these
    possible solutions, I have no clue where your Card LV.2 is. 

 Q. I'm playing through a second time, and can't open the LV.1 door after
    Teliko rescued me in the Residential Area?
 A. The card key is in your deck list, which doesn't provide much help
    to you in the middle of the fight. If you go back the way you came
    in, you will be able to reach the bullseye without the use of the
    card key.

    Card LV.2 shows up in your deck after the BRC-026 (_I think_), but
    this card should be useless for someone going through the game a
    second time.
