Going to include most of this in the guide, but for meantime posting here to get some feedback and maybe even find out new stuff and secrets . Oh yes, there will be spoilers!

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Trophy Guide
Ofcourse, everyone should remember basics for beginning, tranq all bosses for special camo unlocks (or in case of The End, his rifle) . Then you have the swamp and lake place at beginning of game with the crocs that can barrel roll you to death in the water if you go near them or piss them off so they come after you. Be sure to watch yourself if out for a swim!
Alrighty, so had a few tricks for The End before when this was on the Ps2 and decided to try them out here. Sure enough everything that you could do on first game still works . Btw, the code sequence to show The End on the map(haven't tried but told and assuming so with everything else )
Namely the changing time trick on the system for the other cutscenes and easy kill on him. Just go with changing the internal time up one year and load your game. NOTE, you need to save in battle with him first. You can change time and when load up, Snake walks up to find The End dead from old age, but disheartened cause he disappointed him in death.
If you don't change time up far enough, when you load, you'll be found by The End and tranqed. He won't kill you but drop you off in prison back where Granin is located and you will have to make your way all the way back. Helps to get out of the battle if can't take him down though I suppose.
Ofcourse, you can simply snipe him at the docks still too But this is the pussy method and should only be done for the trophy and then have game reloaded so you can experience a real battle.
Remember that croc cap you got at beginning of game? Oh you didn't get it, disregard then. But if you wear it when you crawl in the river area of the Battle with The End, he will think you're a croc . LOL! The old fart supposed to be father of sniping and can't see the damn gun and legs and arms that croc has there.. or the missing tail?
For The Fear, you can throw down some rotten food(noted by the flies on the item icon of it in your inventory) or poisonous food and he will eat it when his stamina gets low. He will go after whatever you drop down before eating other animals and such in the area, so keep in mind.
This works for enemy soldiers too, can take out their provisions or ammo supplies with some TNT(trophy btw) and they will have less ammo and become hungry making them eat food if you drop it. Another thing you can do is throw spiders and snakes at them and if it's poisonous, you will poison them(another trophy lolz). they will slowly die now from this .
For this damned snake, you can find randomly by setting down mousetraps and leaving the area. Come back and check them to see if you caught anything. Will 7/10 be something from the environment so keep in mind, rare chance for this snake. I did very easily with 3 attempts in the area you battle The Fear. Dropped 4 mousetraps which you can get easily from warehouse nearby inside storage room, left, re-entered and recollected. You get mousetraps back by crawling over them just so you know. . Also, you will locate another Tsuchonoko outside the waterfall area after Snake gets tortured and meets Eva to get gear back. Tranq here and keep till end of game for infinity facepaint
