[top]The Story

You takes the roles of two deeply undercover agents; Solid Snake and Raiden.
As Snake you must locate and photograph Metal Gear RAY. The simple mission quickly takes a turn for the worse as the Tanker gets taken over by a Russian Objective.
Use stealth or combat to do your mission and clear out before everything sinks beyond your control.

Two years later, you play as Raiden, the new recruit. You must infiltrate an Oil Spill Cleanup Facility and rescue the US President. But again, nothing is as it seems as the dead seem to come back to life and the line between reality and VR training blur.



[top]Tips & Strategies

Helpful Items
USP Handgun: You will acquire the USP after defeating Olga.
Thermal Goggles: After fighting Olga, head up the mast to the very top.
Socom Suppressor: Big Shell in Strut F, opposite the terminal there's a vent on the floor, follow it through to the next room.
M9: This is found on the Big Shell in Strut F, in the back room on the top floor.
Girlie Magazine: Strut F on the bottom floor, you need to jump from a set of boxes to reach it. Shell 1, once you have access to Level 2 door pass, head into the bottom of the map and there's a line of lockers.
AKAS-74U: Is located in Strut F once you have access to the Level 2 Security door.
M4: Is also in Strut F once you have Level 2 access. (BEWARE THE BOMB)
RGB6: Once you've Level 3 clearance, head into Strut F and find the Level 3 door.
PSG-1: Level 3 Clearance lets you get into the room in.. Go on, guess which Strut..... Strut F!
Nikita Rocket Launcher: You'll find the Nikita Rocket Launcher after you've done some swimming in the sunk section of Shell 2.
Body Armour: In Shell 2, rescue Emma and drop her at the exit door. Then go back underwater and the Armour is in the top right of the map.

Enemies
Guards: If it's safe to do so, it's a good idea to make them surrender and get them to shake loose any items they have on them. First aim for the head, if nothing, then aim for the grain. If nothing still... shoot them. You can then grab the enemy to drag him, but drop him a few times first and occasionally ammo or rations drop.
Attack Team: Best to avoid really, if you must fight them. Then headshots are by far the best method for a quick take down, as their firing can kill you very quickly. So running is probably the safer option.


[top]Roadmap

First off: It's possible to get Bye Bye Big Brother, To Catch a Predator, Hurt Locker, Don't Taze Me, Bro, Nothing Personal, Rent Money, Kissing Booth, and Silence is Golden all through VR. - Thanks to ImaNobleRabbit for pointing this out.

Playthrough One:
First I'd play through the game on Normal, going for the "Kill" trophies and the other random trophies such as hiding guards in lockers, kissing lockers and other locker related trophies. Also try to get as many Dog Tags as possible.

Playthrough Two: On the second play through I'd play on very easy and get every Dog Tag and any trophy you previously missed, also taking out the cameras again for "Bye Bye Big Brother".

Playthrough Three: Play again on Hard and try to get as many Dog Tags as you can, again finishing off missed trophies.

Playthrough Four + : Keep playing until you manage to get the "Great Dane" trophy.

Final Playthrough: You should have access to the Stealth Suit now, use this to your advantage and go for "Complete Stealth"

Finally: Go through and finish all the random trophies and do the VR Missions and after a lot of hard work, sweat and blood you'll hear that joyous "Ping"




[top]Trophies

[top]
Extremely Solid
- Collect all trophies

As with every other game, just get all the other trophies to unlock this platinum. Finally, a Metal Gear Solid

[top]
Animal Control
- Collect a dog tag

A nice, simple trophy to get at the start of the game. If you head around to the left, you'll see an enemy patrolling. Hide up against the wall and wait until he stops, he waits for a few seconds and turns around. Run up behind him and hold (with the gun equipped) to aim the solider and he'll surrender.
Keep holding and hold (to lock on to him), run around so that you're facing him. Switch to first person view ( ) and aim at his face or groin and he'll panic and shake, dropping his dog tag.
If however he doesn't panic... Switch to a lethal hand gun (as opposed to a tranquillizer) and shoot a hand to give him some encouragement.. He'll soon start shaking.
Credit to the owner

Note: The Dog Tag will disappear quite quickly unless picked up straight away.

[top]
Bye Bye Big Brother
- Destroy 15 cameras

You must destroy 15 cameras with a lethal weapon, (so not your M9). Raiden and Snake can get this trophy.
You'll need more than one play through for this trophy as there are 4-5 cameras per game.
Once you've completed a play through you MUST load that Clear Game Data and select New Game from there, otherwise the Camera Counter is reset.

Note: You'll get to a stage where you've got to blow up a control panel to save the President. On the bottom left is a small dark room, with two cameras in it. Be careful not to trigger them when you walk in. This is also the best place to fire the Nikita from

[top]
Down in Smoke
- Disorient an enemy with a cloud of smoke from a fire extinguisher

Throughout the game there are Fire Extinguishers. Just wait for an enemy to go near one (or lure them by tapping walls etc) and then shoot the extinguisher to cover the enemy and disorientate him.
Credit goes to owner

[top]
Vamp Eyer
- Catch a glimpse of Vamp standing in the streets of New York during the end cinematic

At the end of the game, Snake and Raiden are talking in the streets. When they start talking about the Dog Tags, use to zoom in between Snake and Raiden and try to find a guy standing by himself.
It can be quite easily missed. So I'd save in the Solidous fight.
Credit to the owner

[top]
To Catch a Predator
- Lure a guard with a girlie magazine

In the game you'll come across some "girlie" magazines... Playboy. Watch an enemies patrol route and place a magazine where they'll end up patrolling and the enemy will become distracted by it.

[top]
Sexting
- Send Otacon a picture of the marine with no pants

In Hold No.1, you'll see a Marine without his trousers on. Perfect time for some voyeur... Anyways, zoom in and take a photo. If it's a good photo, Snake will tell you so... by saying, "Good".
Then when uploading the pictures at the terminal, Otacon will see it, start laughing and give you the trophy.

[top]
Hurt Locker
- Put an enemy in a locker

Whenever you find a locker, kill or knock out an enemy nearby and drag him into the locker. Snake will then position him inside and shut the door, unlocking the trophy.

Note: This is also useful to hide the incapacitated solider, from other enemies, giving them no reason to go into Alert Mode

[top]
Thanks, Ames
- Learn the location of the president

Once you're on Shell 1 and have the microphone, you'll find Ames and a huge cutscene will play out. Your trophy will pop up at the end.

^ Ames ^
Note: This is story related and can't be missed

[top]
I Think You Need a Hug, E
- Find Emma Emmerich

Once you've beaten Vamp in Shell 2, you'll find E in a centre locker in a small room, so check else where to get other items first, as once you've got her out, you can't go back in.
The trophy will pop up when you're talking to E.

Note: This is story related and can't be missed

[top]
Don't Taze Me, Bro
- Tranquilize 100 enemies

This is a simple enough trophy. Use the M9 Tranquillizer or another Tranquillizer weapon to put 100 enemies to sleep.
This should be easy to do in your first playthrough.

[top]
Nothing Personal
- Break the neck of 30 enemies

Easiest way to do this, is to get an enemy to surrender, walk up behind him and hold , then keep pressing it quickly to break his neck. Do this to 30 soldiers to get this easy trophy.

[top]
Rent Money
- Beat 30 enemies unconscious

Again, easiest way to do this is to get them to surrender, run around behind them and do a melee combo until you knock them out.
The harder the difficulty the more it takes to knock them out, so bare that in mind.

[top]
Sharing Is Caring
- Befriend Olga Gurlukovich

You'll get caught and tied up, and eventually Olga will come to speak to you. The trophy will pop up after she leaves.

Note: This is story related and can't be missed

[top]
Piece of Cake
- Complete a VR or Alternative mission

A nice simple trophy.
Go Main Menu > Specials > Missions.
Then choose your character and mission objective. Complete the mission and you'll get the trophy

[top]
Johnny on the Spot
- Hear Johnny's bowel noises in two locations

Location 1: Once you've acquired the directional microphone and start speaking to Ames, he'll tell you to listen into Ocelots conversation. But instead, aim the microphone to the left, where the toilet it. You'll be aiming through the poles on the podium.

Location 2: When you're protecting Emma whilst walking across the struts, she'll go behind a second Strut, this is when you use your Directional Microphone.


Note: This Trophy is glitched, so try both locations on each play through

[top]
Kissing Booth
- Kiss a poster in a locker

From the outside of the tanker at the start, head through the door on the left of the boat and you'll be in Deck-A, Crew's Quarters. You'll come across a locker room. Open the top left locker by pressing and inside is a picture of a bikini girl
Get inside of the locker and enter first person Then hold and Snake will lean in and kiss the girl. Let go and you should get the trophy.

[top]
Silence is Golden
- Shoot 10 enemy radios

Easiest way is to get the enemy to surrender, then aim for his radio with a lethal handgun (not a tranquillizer gun). The radio on normal guards are on the back right of their hips.
You'll easily get this with the guards, probably too risky going for other soldiers.
If you are feeling adventurous though, the radios are on their left shoulder blade.

[top]
Steamed
- Kill 5 enemies with pipe steam

Now this would be painful. Shoot a gas pipe as an enemy walks past it, scolding him... but more importantly, getting you the trophy.
The best place for this is on your way to the Holding areas. Get into Alert Mode and fire at the pipes as each Guard runs past.
Credit to the owner

[top]
Yorkie
- Get the bandana

When you're playing as Snake, you must collect 50 Dog Tags on the Tanker. You can do this across all the difficulties as they stack. If you've got enough by the end of the scenario, you'll get the bandana.
This is best done by selecting the Tanker scenario by itself, otherwise you'll need to complete both the Tanker-Plant before you get the item.

See Great Dane for the Dog Tag guide.

NOTE: You must complete the scenario to get the trophy.

[top]
Poodle
- Get the Tanker stealth suit

Do exactly as you would with Yorkie, you must play through the Tanker as Snake, but this time collect a total of 76 Dog Tags. You'll be well on your way to this trophy after getting Yorkie.

You then need to change Raiden to Rose
And Solidous to Raiden.
Watch the clip all the way through for the trophy.

[top]
Bohemian Candidate
- Meet President James Johnson

Once you get to Shell 2, you'll need to release the President. First you'll have to bypass an electric floor by destroying a control panel. You'll find the Nikita Rocket Launcher after you've done some swimming in the sunk section.
The easiest way to then destroy the panel is to head into a small dark room on the bottom, left of the map. Beware of the two cameras, then jump up on counter and fire towards the air vent.

Note: This is story related and can't be missed.

[top]
Bomb Squad
- Learn how to defuse C4 bombs from Peter Stillman

Once you're playing as Raiden, you'll come to Stillman and he'll give you a huge cutscene about the explosives and Fatman. After that finishes, the trophy will pop up.

[top]
Spaghetti Cinema
- Meet Revolver

You'll get this just after uploading the photos of Metal Gear RAY and the cutscene with Ocelot.

Note: This is story related and can't be missed.

[top]
Photo Finish
- Acquire the digital camera

Once you've found the Cardboard Box with ZOE written on the side, go to Strut E. At the bottom of the map, jump onto the conveyor belt and equip the ZOE box and you'll come to stop in a room (if you're in a different box, you'll bypass this area).
The camera is just on the floor.

[top]
Steel Grip
- Attain grip level 3

This trophy is rather tedious.
But back up against and railing and press to jump over it. Hold + to do a full pull up, the controller will double vibrate, then let go and the controller will vibrate when you're at full stretch. Repeat this 200 times.
Another way of doing this is to "ledge drop". Find a railing with another railing directly below it. Jump over the railing as before, but this time, press to let go and to catch the ledge below. This counts as 10 pull ups. Best place for this is in the Tanker Engine Room.

Note: If you die, you reset to 1 Grip Level

[top]
Lights Out
- Defeat Olga Gurlukovich

This will be your first boss fight. It'll be against a Russian Girl called Olga (who.. well... doesn't shave).
The fight is quite simple, just shoot the spotlight out and then keep shooting her with your M9. Her "sleep" bar drains pretty quickly on Normal mode.
Half way through the fight, she'll shoot a tarpon, which partly blocks her. But shoot the other connecting ring and it'll blow away.
Then finish her off.
After the cut scene, remember to shake her body and she'll drop her Dog Tag.

Note: This is story related and can't be missed

[top]
Party's Over
- Defeat Fatman

Got to kinda feel sorry for the fat man, but whatever. Kill him at the top of Strut E and get his Dog Tag, also revealing the bomb.
He'll skate around planting bombs, they're easy enough to find. After disabling them, shoot Fatman as much as you can with auto-aim, then once in the head when he falls over.

Note: This is story related and can't be missed

[top]
No-Fly Zone
- Destroy the AV-88 Harrier II

As you're trying to cross over to Shell 2, you'll get attacked by Vamp and Solidus in a Harrier. Take it down by using your Stinger Missile launcher that gets thrown to you. After you've taken it down the trophy will come up.

Note: This is story related and can't be missed

[top]
No Ray, Josť
- Defeat Metal Gear RAY

This is a lot easier than it seems. Just keep hammering away at The RAYS with the Stinger Missile Launcher until a cutscene happens and your trophy pops up.
The harder the level, the more damage you've got to do overall, to kill The RAYS.
To inflict the most damage, aim at their legs, then quickly into their open mouths.

Note: This is story related and can't be missed

[top]
Another Snake Bites the Dust
- Defeat Solidus Snake

Probably the most annoying fight in the game. Sword fighting against Solidous. Just keep hacking away at him and when he fires his rockets, try and get to him and take a few stabs.
Remember to block using

Note: This is story related and can't be missed

[top]
Vampire Slayer
- Defeat Vamp

In Shell Core 2, you'll face Vamp in quite a small room.
I found the best way was to use the Stinger Missile Launcher and fire it every time I locked on, making sure not to hit his knives instead. You'll learn his moves quite quickly and know when best to fire.
The alternative is to wear him down with a tranquilliser, then shoot any explosives with a Handgun when near Vamp. - Thanks to Nemisis15

Note: This is story related and can't be missed

[top]
Who Ya Gonna Call?
- Take a clear photograph of the ghost image in Hold No. 2

Once you enter Hold No.2 you'll see two projectors and two screens. When the film is on the right screen, take some photos of it until you see a red "Ghost" and Snake will grunt when he sees it.
Credit to the owner

[top]
No Boss of Mine
- Complete Boss Survival

After completing the game go into SPECIAL > BOSS SURVIVAL.
I'd definitely do this on Easy, as you've got to face each boss straight after each other... without dying.
There's at least one Ration on each level.
Raiden is the better character to use, otherwise you'll end up facing Solidous with just your fists.

The fights happen in this order:
Olga Gurlukovich > Tanker Hallway Ambush > Fatman > Harrier > Vamp > Arsenal Tengu Ambush > Metal Gear Rays > Solidus Snake

[top]
Moving Day
- Collect all boxes

Pretty much explore everywhere and you'll find the boxes. They look just like any normal item drop.

Tanker Locations

Toggle Spoiler



Plant Locations

Toggle Spoiler

[top]
Tell Me a Tale
- Complete all Snake Tales

Snakes Tales: This is basically the Big Shell, from Snakes point of view.
From the Main Menu, go down to Snake Tales. Inside are 5 missions. So create a new save film and complete all 5 missions on this file.

[top]
In It to Win It
- Place first in 50 different VR/Alternative missions

At the main menu go into MISSIONS, you then need to go through 50 VR or Alternative Missions and get the top score in 50 of them.
This basically means getting through the level as quick as you can. If you don't get first place, you can simply retry.
Pay attention to the guards movements and the trophy should come with practice.

[top]
Complete Stealth
- Clear the game without entering alert mode (not including events where alert mode is mandatory)

This trophy isn't as hard as it sounds, especially once you've unlocked the stealth suit.
You've got to complete the game without every going into ALERT mode.

Below are the mandatory locations where ALERT is impossible to bypass:
Tanker - Olga Fight
Tanker - Engine Room Hallway Ambush
Plant - Fortune
Plant - Fatman Fight
Plant - Escaping Core 1
Plant - Harrier Fight
Plant - Vamp Fight
Arsenal - Tengu
Arsenal - Metal Gear Ray Fight
New York - Solidus Fight

Some extra info thanks to: 'Savepoint'
1. You can check your number of alerts in the game over screen under "alertnum", this counter doesn't carry over Tanker's alerts (and you need to play both in order to unlock the trophy), the only times where the counter goes up are:
Emma - Oil fence sequence
Arsenal Gear - First part when the Cypher spots you
Arsenal Gear - Second part, when the Fission mail appears.
So, in order to get the trophy you must complete Tanker and Plant and get only 3 alerts.

[top]
Great Dane
- Collect all dog tags

The title is actually misleading. Basically you've got to get a certain amount of Dog Tags. Collect enough Dog Tags and you unlock a trophy and a Special Item, e.g The Stealth Suit.
Collect enough Dog Tags to unlock each one and you'll get the trophy.
This trophy will require multi playthroughs as there aren't enough Dog Tags to collect in just the one.
Below are detailed Dog Tag Guides, with thanks to Carlos at GameFaqs for allowing me to link their guide, (who I emailed and got a quick response from)

[top]
A Cut Above
- Beat the Tanker and Plant chapters on any difficulty

As easy at is sounds... As you can just choose to do it on Very Easy. Make sure you play on Tanker-Plant.
After the end credits your trophy will make that joyous sound.

[top]
Virtually Impossible
- Complete all VR and Alternative missions

From the main menu go into MISSIONS and then complete all the VR Training and Alternative Missions.
There are 7 characters you have to do. Raiden, Ninja Raiden, Raiden X, Snake, Pliskin, Snake Tuxedo and Snake MGS1.
Each character has different difficulty levels and most will require a few attempts. Whenever you want to quit the game, make sure you manually save as there's no auto-save feature.
