II-C. RECRUITING SOLDIERS                                       MGSPOP-S2C
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
You not only play as Snake, but 99-300 different characters throughout
the game. Some are crap, and others prove useful in some way. The MK22 is
the best weapon to go recruit soldiers. Find someone with good handgun
skills and go nuts.

To recruit an enemy soldier, find a way to make the guard go unconscious
or put him to sleep, then drag him back to the truck. Another way would
be to drag him next to a friendly cardboard box and call the frequency
143.15 using your radio. (WARNING: Do NOT kill the enemy soldier or else
you won't be able to recruit him/her!)

Recruiting soldiers will help you form squads, add soldiers to help you
bring medical supplies, technicals, and extra missions where you can find
special items.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
II-D. TECHNICAL/MEDICAL UNITS                                   MGSPOP-S2D
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Technical Units(or Tech Unit for short) will help you make ammunition for
your weapons and special items to help you in your mission. They also
prolong the battery life of certain equipment(Stealth, NVG). Finding good
technicians/engineers with high skill ranking will increase your Tech
Level. The ranking can be found at the "helmet" symbol to the left of the
"medical cross" symbol.

MY CURRENT TECHNICAL UNIT + TECH RANKING
----------------------------------------
/ TECH LEVEL: 99          \
\ o = Male     x = Female /
o LIZARD (ELITE ENGINEER/ENGINEER/PVT 1ST CLASS, S2)
o SOKOLOV (ELITE ENGINEER, S2)
o WOMBAT (ELITE ENGINEER/ARTIST, A)
o FUR SEAL (ELITE ENGINEER/QUARTERBACK, S)
x PARTRIDGE (CORPORAL/ELITE ENGINEER/HEADHUNTER, S)
o JAWS (ELITE ENGINEER, A)
o BONGO (ELITE ENGINEER/QUARTERBACK, S)
o WILD DOG (ELITE ENGINEER/ARMS SPECIALIST, S2)

Medical Units(or Med Unit for short) will help you spawn recovery supplies
to keep you alive on your mission. A good place to find doctors or other
medical staff would be at the Hospital or Research Lab. The Medical ranking
may be found on the far right of the rankings, at the Manage screen.

MY CURRENT MEDICAL UNIT + MEDICAL RANKING
-----------------------------------------
/ MEDIC LEVEL: 86         \
\ o = Male     x = Female /
x PARA-MEDIC (DOCTOR/CHEMIST/NUTRITIONIST, S2)
x ELISA (DOCTOR/CHEMIST, S2)
x URSULA (CHEMIST, S2)
o BOBOLINK (SURVEYOR/HEADHUNTER, S2)
o SEA CUCUMBER (MAJOR/ARTIST, S2)
x PEAFOWL (DOCTOR/BAIT, S2)
o SEAGULL (SPY, S2)
o MANDRILL (SURVEYOR, S2)

NOTE: As you can see, my Tech Unit has all ELITE ENGINEERS. They are no
      different from regular ENGINEERS, and soldiers can have both
      resources sometimes.

NOTE: All soldiers on these lists are at their default names. You may
      find a soldier with the same name but different careers/rankings.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
II-E. SNEAKING/SPY UNITS                                        MGSPOP-S2E
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sneaking Units are what you need to complete your missions. You can make
up to EIGHT squads of 4 members per squad. Whoever is the first person of
that squad is who'll you'll be using when you start a mission.

Spy Units assists you in any way necessary. This can range from lowering
health of enemies to providing more map detail. Unlike Portable Ops, you
don't deploy them in missions. You create a team of eight spies called
the Spy Unit. You'll also notice that there is an extra column in STATUS
dedicated to the Spy Unit.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
II-F. LEGEND OF SYMBOLS                                         MGSPOP-S2F
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
To know what each symbol means at the Manage screen, press SELECT and the
game will give you a detailed panel with the answers.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
II-G. TIPS AND TRICKS                                           MGSPOP-S2G
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
These are some tips to help you during your missions.

o Keep your weapon reloaded after every use. Always reload through the
inventory screen(hold Circle and reload from there). Or you can tap Circle
twice quick. You can see that your weapon's current mag is running out
judging by how much white is over it.

o Keep an eye on your health/stamina. Recover via the inventory screen.

o Use MK22 for recruiting, or if you're good at CQC, choke until they are
unconscious. Use XM177E2/MK23 for killing. Both weapons have muffled shots,
so make sure you act like a sniper rather than go fully automatic. And aim
their heads for extreme effectiveness. 

o Remember that you may not switch characters in your unit if you're in
Alert Mode. Clear it out before switching.

o You may drag an unconscious/sleeping enemy soldier near a friendly
cardboard box and call 143.15 to recruit him/her.

o The truck that you were deployed from will now have an arrow above it.
This is a handy trick to know which one you need to drag your recruits in.

SECTION III. WEAPONS/ITEMS                                        MGSPOP-S3

III-A. MILITARY ARMS                                            MGSPOP-S3A
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
You are better off with guns at some missions, instead of trying to show
off your kung-fu mastery skills to think that you can beat the mission.
Finding these weapons are pretty much random. I did list some locations
where you can get that particular weapon, but won't always happen due to
randomness. I usually get all my equipment from recruiting soldiers.

NOTE: It's best to try and look at the guards to see which weapon they're
      carrying, and try to shake it off of them after you knock them out.

|                | Can be equipped with a sound suppressor. Features a |
|                | slide lock lever designed primarily for single-shot |
|                | firing, increasing the sound-reducing capability of |
|                | suppressors.                                        |

| M1911A1        | Uses ".45ACP" rounds. CQC-enabled.                  |
|                |-----------------------------------------------------|
| ANY FEMALE     | This masterpiece of an automatic pistol has been a  |
| SOLDIER        | faithful partner to U.S. soldiers since the first   |
|                | model was adopted by the U.S. Army in 1911. Capacity|
|                | is limited to seven rounds, but the .45ACP bullets  |
|                | boast excellent stopping power, and the gun's simple|
|                | design makes it highly reliable.                    |
|                |                                                     |
|                | With its high potential firing accuracy, the M1911A1|
|                | is also widely used as a base for custom models in  |
|                | shooting competitions.                              |
|----------------|-----------------------------------------------------|
| SAA            | Uses ".45LC" rounds. Revolver. Ocelot's gun.        |
|                |-----------------------------------------------------|
|                | Also known as the "Peacemaker" and the "Frontier,"  |
|                | this single action revolver is a symbol of the days |
|                | of the Wild West. The masterpiece SAA was adopted as|
|                | the official sidearm of the U.S. Army in 1875. This |
|                | pistol's solid frame construction results in lengthy|
|                | reload times, but also ensures extremely high       |
|                | durability. This and the gun's simple mechanics make|
|                | the SAA a highly reliable weapon.                   |

|                | per minute. This excessively fast firing rate has   |
|                | a negative impact on accuracy; but in the hands of  |
|                | a seasoned marksman, it can deliver massive         |

SECTION IV. WALKTHROUGH/CHANGES                                   MGSPOP-S4
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus is more for online than offline. It
introduces Infinity Mission, where you can train the ultimate soldier.
You have four difficulties to go through in the game. Easy, Normal, Hard,
and the toughest of all, Extreme. Story Mode is removed from the game.

Infinity Missions are randomized, so a walkthrough is not necessary. On
Easy Difficulty, you get five Stages. On Normal, you get ten. On Hard, you
get 15. And on Extreme, you get 20. Most of these stages follow the rule
of getting from Point A to Point B.

Special Missions always happen before an intermission screen. These are
usually missions with time limits. The last special mission will always be
an infiltration operation.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
IV-A. MISSION INFORMATION                                       MGSPOP-S4A
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

/ BRIEFING SCREEN     \
\ Learn to organize!  /

o Four new open squads are introduced. Team Echo, Foxtrot, Golf, and Hotel
  are now available. As usual, four members per squad is allowed.

o The harder the difficulty you play, the more experience you gain. Try
  not to get caught and collect as many recovery supplies for maximum
  experience. This will help you train the ultimate soldier.

o If you exit a mission or complete a difficulty with health/stamina lost,
  you'd be recovered to full automatically. You don't need to pass twelve
  hours(this was removed from the game) or manually heal. The only time
  you need to replenish yourself is during intermission screens.

o This game introduces two new rankings. S2 and S3. They are basically
  better versions of the S Rank. So study your soldier and equip him/her
  with the weapons they are best at. This will reduce shakiness(less use
  for Pentazamine), faster reloads, more accurate aim, and less stress.

o You can now recruit up to 200 soldiers.

/ DEPLOYMENT TO INFINITY MISSION                 \
\ Learn your surroundings and watch your enemy!  /

o Most missions contain a blue and red access point. Blue is your starting
  point as well as returning to the previous mission(This is handy if you
  need to go back and grab some more supplies to help the current mission
  you are having difficulties with). Red access points is the end point
  (like in the original Portable Ops). A new addition to the game is the
  access points will emit a sound on your radar, so you'll know there is
  one nearby.

o When you reach a mission with a yellow access point, you are almost to
| the end of that particular difficulty. The last mission will mostly
| involve neutralizing targets(by kill or by unconsciousness).
|
| EASY = One Target        NOTE: You just need to neutralize them.    |
| NORMAL = Two Targets           Either kill them or make them sleep/ |
| HARD = Three Targets           unconscious and you will have meet   |
| EXTREME = Four Targets         the objective. Congratulations!      o

o EASY difficulty has five stages that are NOT randomized. It's the same
| stages every time you play, in the same order(HOSPITAL, AIRPORT, COMM
| BASE, SOVIET PATROL BASE, SILO ENTRANCE). The exit points are also not
| randomized. Here are the locations of all exit points on EASY:
|
| Stage 1 - The roof of the hospital(on the building with reception |
|           desk and examination room).                             |
| Stage 2 - Inside the main building in reception. You'll see it if |
|           you take the very left door.                            |
| Stage 3 - On the roof of a small building.                        |
| Stage 4 - On top of a small building(YELLOW EXIT POINT, Northwest |
|           position on map).                                       |
| Stage 5 - Kill the only enemy(usually a Tengu soldier).           o

o The deployment truck will now have a white arrow above it. Useful for
  aiding you in dragging your recruits(especially in missions where there
  are multiple identical-looking trucks).

o On Hard/Extreme, if you exit a current stage in ALERT/CAUTION(Yellow or
  Green) mode, the next stage you enter will maintain that level. So if
  you want the next stage to be friendly(or safe) for a start, make sure
  you exit the current one when you're clear. (This will not apply for
  stages after Special Missions.)

o Some missions(in Extreme) require you to get to the exit point without
  getting caught. If you evacuate using a FULTON device, and get caught,
  you WILL fail that mission. Even if you set off ALERT MODE by breaking
  a window, you WILL also fail that mission.

i.e., I used the FULTON, and just as soon as the parachute was about to
      lift me up, I got caught. Failed. -_-

i.e., I busted through a window, scaring the crap out of the civilians,
      and failed.. -_- I wasn't seen by the enemy though.. just gave
      them a little scare.. :P

o Some missions require you to get to the exit point under a time limit
  with no enemy soldiers. These missions are infested with Sentry Cameras
  and Claymore Mines. If you crawl over these claymores, you will NOT
  pick them up. They WILL explode. However, they are still noticeable so
  you don't step on the wrong spot. You can also shoot at them and they
  will explode.

o Enemy soldiers will give you clues to their careers. You need to go up
| and interrogate them until they spit it out.
|
| EXAMPLES:                                    |
| "I can make your enemies weaker...!" - SPY   |
| "You need better map data." - SURVEYOR       |
| "Care to make a little wager?" - GAMBLER     o


o When you look at a patrolling guard in First Person View(FPV), you'll
  notice some stars hang over his/her head. The more stars you see in an
  enemy soldier, the better they are in terms of their statistics.

o You can steal items from knocked down enemy soldiers. Pick them up and
  drag them around to make them drop items. A killed enemy soldier will
  only be able to drop one item, while a unconscious/sleeping soldier
  will drop up to two.

o You can also steal items from soldiers that you hold-up(with currently
  equipped weapon). Aim at their heads(eye-to-eye position) to make them
  drop items(and watch the female soldiers shake that ass!). Soldiers may
  drop up to three items this way. Some soldiers will act tough and drop
  nothing, in which this case you should grab them by the neck and choke
  them unconscious.(NOTE: You cannot hold-up soldiers during ALERT MODE!)

o Your health and stamina bar are no longer as long as they were in MPO.
  However, this doesn't change anything. It's basically shrunk to give you
  more viewing space.

o You cannot recruit enemy soldiers that are killed in action(KIA).

o There may be some missions where you think it's impossible to get to the
| exit point. Some known ones(from my experience) are listed below:
|
| RAVINE - The exit point may be near the small building across a       |
|          very thin ledge. Jump down so you grip on that ledge, then   |
|          shimmy over to the exit.                                     |
|                                                                       |
| SILO COMPLEX - The exit point is behind some crates that the player   |
|                is unable to climb across. See the window on the top   |
|                of the exit point? Get to that window, then roll       |
|                through it to jump down. You should be able to land    |
|                on that exit.                                          |
|                                                                       |
| SILO COMPLEX - The exit point is on a high stack of crates inside     |
|                the storage room(MPO veterans will know how to get     |
|                to this). If you don't know how to get there, from     |
|                the door you entered, you're gonna have to do a        |
|                series of roll-jumps from where you start to the       |
|                far left to the far right. It's VERY annoying,         |
|                especially if the mission is timed.                    o

IV-B. INVENTORY INFORMATION                                     MGSPOP-S4B
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

o There is no limit in how many guns or supplies you can carry, although
  the total is four. For example, you can carry three AK-47s, or three
  stocks of medikits/rations.

o To reload/use an item, hold down the Circle button and press the
  corresponding direction(using the D-Pad) of that particular item.

o Medikit/Ration Stocks have a limit of 15 per inventory slot.

o Guns and their respective ammo use separate inventory slots.

o You can treat in-game weapon items as ammo boxes. For example, if your
  inventory is full, and you have an AK-47 without max ammo, you can run
  over another AK-47 item box to refill your current AK-47's ammunition.
  (This trick will not work with different guns that use the same ammo.)

o BATTERY items only replenish your power meter on pick-up. They cannot
  be saved for later via player's inventory.

  the XMB menu. There is a limit on characters and stages in this mode.
  NOTE/REMINDER: Make sure you turn ON the Wi-Fi switch!

o MPO+ now features a new lobby exclusively for inexperienced players.
  Build your skills here, have some confidence, and you'll join the MPO
  veterans one day.

o In GameSharing games(not sure if this applies to other modes), quickly
  tapping Circle twice will NOT reload your weapon. You'll have to reload
  manually through the inventory screen or hold Lock-On and press Circle.

IV-F. BOSS INFORMATION(BOSS RUSH MODE)                          MGSPOP-S4F
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Rush Mode(familiar to Castlevania fans) is a mission where you fight
every single boss in Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops. The order of bosses
did NOT change, and you'll be fighting them pretty much the same way you
did in MPO.

ACCESS GRANTED: Have a savefile of MPO, and it'll be automatically
                unlocked. At the Briefing Screen, go to the Training
                menu and you'll be able to select it from there.

RULE: No Medikits allowed. If you try to equip Medikits, the game will
      take it away from you. Use something else in place of those. You
      can still equip Body Armor, though.

NOTE: If one of you dies, then you will need to select the next person to
      fight on(like in MPO). You fight all the bosses at once, so equip
      well or else!

RECOMMENDED SUPPLIES: M870 Shotgun(with Shells), Body Armor, AK-47(with
                      ammo), M63(with ammo). You will need to split up
                      equipment across the four soldiers. However, I
                      recommend each soldier to have Body Armor equipped.

And here comes the walkthrough for Boss Rush Mode(C/P from my MPO Guide):

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
BOSS FIGHT: PYTHON(WARHEAD STORAGE)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
RECOMMENDED PERSONNEL: A person with great shotgun skills.
RECOMMENDED SUPPLIES: Shotgun w/ 12-gauge shells, Body Armor
DIFFICULTY: 6/10

This boss fight is easy if you have the M870 Shotgun. He'll be knocked
down after every hit. When he FULLY gets up, wait around one to two
seconds before shooting him again. Keep him locked on, and you should
have no trouble.

If you do not have a Shotgun with you, it'll take longer, but keep him
locked on, and don't lose him. What I did was I ran all the way up to
the upper level with an automatic rifle and kept shooting. Sometimes it
may feel you no longer have him locked on, but it's like that and you'll
have to wait for him to show up again. The Shotgun is preferred since
he'll be knocked down to the ground after every hit.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
BOSS FIGHT: NULL(SILO ENTRANCE)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
RECOMMENDED PERSONNEL: Anybody.
RECOMMENDED SUPPLIES: M870 Shotgun(Any killing weapon will do), Body Armor.
DIFFICULTY: 4/10(5/10 if not using M870)

If you have the M870 Shotgun, you already won the battle. Null will try to
shoot at you with his automatic rifle. Hide behind the walls to avoid.
After three waves of shooting, Null will reload. Dash out and pump one
shell at him and watch his life go down. Rinse and repeat.

You can use any weapon for this boss battle, but the Shotgun does best in
my opinion, as it knocks him down and it's a one-time blow. The damage
dealt to Null is great, even on Extreme! You practically are invincible
when you use the M870 Shotgun.

You also need to get use to the timing of his shots. He won't fire three
waves of bullets at you every time. He may make one long burst, then a
short one.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
BOSS FIGHT: METAL GEAR RAXA(PLANT)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
RECOMMENDED PERSONNEL: Soldiers with high HP, good Heavy Weaponry skills
RECOMMENDED SUPPLIES: M63, AK-47, Body Armor
DIFFICULTY: 6/10

You'll need to take out Metal Gear's four legs before it'll reveal its
"weakness". You brought the automatic rifles, right? Keep shooting at its
legs while it's on the GROUND!

Once all four legs are destroyed, Metal Gear will open up its compartments
where it will launch missiles at you. This is where you shoot at to take
life off of Metal Gear. To dodge the missiles, after a 2-5 second window,
run away from Metal Gear and roll if you must for extra speed. Rinse and
repeat, and you'll win. There's a RPG-7 in the vicinity as well, so if
you run out of ammo, get the RPG-7 and the 20 Missiles.. and finish it
off with all you've got.

Now, your own defense. NEVER stay directly below Metal Gear. It may stomp
on you, resulting a one-hit KO. You'll see the shadow of Metal Gear when
it's up on the air.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
BOSS FIGHT: NULL(POWER SUBSTATION)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
RECOMMENDED PERSONNEL: Anybody.
RECOMMENDED SUPPLIES: M870 Shotgun(Any killing weapon will do), Body Armor.
DIFFICULTY: 4/10(5/10 if not using M870)

If you have the M870 Shotgun, you already won the battle. Null will try to
shoot at you with his automatic rifle. Hide behind the walls to avoid.
After three waves of shooting, Null will reload. Dash out and pump one
shell at him and watch his life go down. Rinse and repeat.

You can use any weapon for this boss battle, but the Shotgun does best in
my opinion, as it knocks him down and it's a one-time blow. The damage
dealt to Null is great, even on Extreme! You practically are invincible
when you use the M870 Shotgun.

You also need to get use to the timing of his shots. He won't fire three
waves of bullets at you every time. He may make one long burst, then a
short one.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
BOSS FIGHT: CUNNINGHAM(SILO COMPLEX)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
RECOMMENDED PERSONNEL: Not Applicable
RECOMMENDED SUPPLIES: 5.56mm-ammo weapon(M63 for best results), Body Armor
DIFFICULTY: 6/10(3/10 if using M63)

Bring some automatic rifles and medikits for this battle. This is going
to take a long time depending on how good your aim is. If you got a RPG-7
in your possession, equip it right away before starting this mission.

What you need to shoot is his machine. After enough shooting, he'll go
down and this is where you can shoot like crazy. Unfortunately, this guy
has a machine gun, a missile launcher, and a laser. When he says "Dodge
this!", that means he is about the launch missiles at you. You WILL see
these missiles, and it's up to you how you want to dodge them.

Cunningham will also throw mines around your area, and they will detonate
when he says so or when you step on one. So be careful. With the RPG-7,
you can win this in no time. With machine guns, good luck with the aim.
You need the FPV to aim properly.

LUCKY BREAK: I used the M63, kept shooting at him.. and didn't take one
ounce of damage. My god, the M63 owns against him!!! And since he drops
5.56mm rounds, it makes the deal even sweeter!! You don't even need to go
to FPV for aiming!

If you happen to HAVE the M63(which can be found in Side Mission: Harbor),
keep shooting at him while he's on the air. Eventually, he will fall down
and this is where you go fully automatic on him. Rinse and repeat. The
ONLY thing he CAN do is fire missiles at you. Strafe(you did keep the
Lock-on button held down, did you?) left or right to avoid.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
FINAL BOSS: GENE(LAUNCH CONTROL ROOM)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
RECOMMENDED PERSONNEL: Not Applicable
RECOMMENDED SUPPLIES: M870 Shotgun, Body Armor
DIFFICULTY: 7/10

BRING THE M870 SHOTGUN FOR THIS BATTLE. IT WILL OWN HIS ASS!!

At certain points, he will throw knifes.. WATCH his hand movement. As
soon as he raises up his arm, shoot him with the Shotgun!! If you done
it right, it will hit him.

At certain points, he will use some sort of supernatural force. Shoot
with the shotgun a few times to break free.

At some points, he will charge up yellow. Run away from his facing
direction and he'll miss you. He'll act like he's tired, and this is
where you shoot that Shotgun right through his ass!!

Rinse and repeat. When he tries to run, shoot at him. Half the time it
will hit, but it's better than nothing.

ALTERNATE STRATEGY: (From Jake the Snake)

"Just make sure you got TNT when you face him. Place it right next to him
when he does his voice thing and when he's tired...blow it up... depletes
almost half of his health, I think I beat him after doing it like 3 times."

HARBOR(UNRESOLVED MYSTERIES)

There is a crate inside the ship that has green text on it that reads
"Nabo4knk Na-5". Does anyone know if this means anything???

UPDATE(samusghost@yahoo.com): This is actually Russian Cyrillic.

"the 4 is a ch symbol and what looks like a reversed N is an i
the b is a V and the strange n symbol is a cyrillic L"

NOTE: This was mentioned in the original Portable Ops.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
VI-A. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS                                MGSPOP-S6A
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I LOST MY UNIQUE(S)! HOW DO I GET THEM BACK?! HELP!!!!!!!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unlike in MPO, when uniques die, they are not preserved. Here's how to
recover lost uniques:

o Find them as random prisoners the difficulty they died on. This may
  take a few runthroughs. Once you find them, complete the phase or
  evacuate using a FULTON device(YES, you get to keep all the prisoners
  and supplies you had up to that point).

i.e., I lost Naked Snake(was pissed) and after a few Hard difficulty runs,
      I found him as a prisoner at the Western Wilderness, then evacuated
      using a FULTON device the next stage.

o You can also recover uniques by returning to the Briefing Screen after
  your unique dies. You'll lose your equipment, but you won't have to
  take the hassle of finding them again.

i.e., I let Old Snake die(was intentional) and quickly exited out of the
      mission. Old Snake was pretty healthy at the Briefing Screen. =)

o If you lose your unique in multiplayer, you can recover them as random
  prisoners in Extreme mode. Just keep playing until you get them back.

NOTE: All experience gained with that unique will be lost.(It wouldn't
      make much difference anyway, since you can't boost health or stats
      with them.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I EVACUATED USING A FULTON DEVICE, BUT I STILL FAILED THE MISSION?!?!
I SET OFF ALERT MODE BY BREAKING A WINDOW, BUT FAILED THE MISSION?!?!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
To my understanding, this crap only happens on Extreme. Let's say you're
in one of those missions where you're not suppose to get caught. Even if
the enemy sees you parachuting away or hears you breaking a window, you
WILL fail that mission. So my advice is to be careful on where you choose
to recover and try not to break any windows.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE ENEMY SOLDIERS ARE IN STEALTH MODE.. HELP!!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Only in Extreme you will get a stage like this. My advice is to run to the
exit as fast as possible; Or if you're aiming to eliminate them all, try
to equip Thermal Goggles if available.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
HOW DO I SAVE MY GAME?!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
At the Briefing Screen, press X. Then highlight SYSTEM and press Circle.
You can now save your game.

NOTE: The game autosaves each time you enter the Briefing Screen(either
      from returning from battle or loading a game).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHERE DO I FIND THE STEALTH CAMO???
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
In missions(where you can actually use it). You must beat the entire phase
or evac with a Fulton Device to keep that equipment. You can also import
your Stealth Camo from a MPO savefile(This would be useless, even in Boss
Rush Mode).

NOTE: The Stealth Camo runs on limited battery. If you run out, you'll
      have to find BATTERY replacements. Usually, the Tengu Soldiers will
      carry them.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHY ARE MY ITEMS GONE WHEN I START A DIFFICULTY LEVEL?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
You may not bring items with you to start a round of Infinity Mission. Any
equipment that's already equipped will be unequipped as soon as you start
the first Stage. My guess is that Konami thinks it would be too easy if
you could start with some equipment.

NOTE: Some uniques start out with weapons, like Raiden(HF Blade), Null
      (), Cunningham(LASER). These weapons cannot be unequipped.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHAT ARE SECRET DOCUMENTS FOR?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you've noticed, some enemy soldiers/civilians drop an item known as
"SECRET DOC". Those items actually place an X on the locations of access
points.(Thanks to Dervish!)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHAT IS THAT PURPLE ACCESS POINT I SAW?
WHERE IS THE HEART OF JUSTICE?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
On Extreme, Stage 14, there will be two exit points: One in Red, another
in Purple. Exiting the purple one will take you to one of two secret
stages. One of them is where enemy soldiers will train themselves. Another
one would be facing off an invisible Gene(you don't fight him) where you
will obtain the Heart of Justice.

NOTE: You will skip Stage 15. The Secret Stages are actually Stage 16.
      Upon completing this, you will move on to Stage 17 normally.

NOTE: The Heart of Justice will only work on Genome Soldiers. What it
      does is change their uniform color. There are about five to six
      different variations of Genome Soldiers.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
HOW DO I USE ITEMS DURING INTERMISSION SCREENS?!
HOW DO I USE THE HEART OF JUSTICE?!
HOW DO I USE TEXTBOOKS?!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Select the character with Circle, then press Triangle to bring up a menu.
Select USE ITEM, and you'll be able to replenish that character's stamina
and/or health, or use special items to boost their stats or other effects.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHAT IS THAT SMALL WHITE TRIANGLE ON THE TOP-RIGHT OF EACH STATUS BOX?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
That indicates the particular stat cannot be improved any further.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
HOW DO I FIRE/DISCHARGE/DISMISS A SOLDIER?
CAN I DISMISS/DISCHARGE/FIRE MULTIPLE SOLDIERS AT ONCE?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Press Circle on the soldier you want to discharge, then press Triangle.
You should get a menu. Choose COMRADE DISCHARGE, then select Yes. That
soldier is now discharged.

The only time you can dismiss multiple soldiers at once is if you go over
the limit. You'll be presented with a screen where you will be able to
release the soldiers you don't need.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
HOW MANY RECRUITS CAN I HAVE AT ONCE?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
A maximum of 200. All characters are distinct from one another.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHICH WEAPONS ARE THE BEST FOR RECRUITING POTENTIAL SOLDIERS?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
MK22, and your own CQC skills. I use both. Use someone with good Knife
and/or Pistol skills and you should be fine. Just don't kill them.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
ARE THE MISSIONS HARD IN EXTREME MODE? DO I DIE IN A COUPLE HITS?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Not a chance. The only difference I spot is that they take less damage
and you take more. And you do not die in two hits. You're stronger than
that.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
IS THE INGRAM MAC 10 THE SAME AS THE M10?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes, they are.
