|Skip The End|
In the cut scene when you see The End in a wheelchair, quickly get your gun out (use the sniper rifle if you have it) and shoot his head before he gets back inside the building.
While in the the Cure Screen hit R1 twice this will activate different animations from body building techniques to stances.
Defeating The Shagohod
Defeating the shagohod is probably the most fun part of the whole game. Quickly shoot the treads (Wheels for those of you you who have bad vocab.) Then Volgin will complain about how he can't move or saying "What have you done!" Eva will drive around to the back of the shagohod and shoot the part that is smoking it takes about one-fifthe of the machines life. If you don't inflict damage it propbably means you didn't do it fast enough.
The Best Tasting Food
While you are fighting the Boss, equip your thermal goggles and look for snake solid, snake liquid, and snake solidus. They are each by one of the three logs that are scattered around the area.
Unlock EZ Gun
You must capture all types of animals and plants in the game, you dont have to eat them and they can be rotten, and once you have captured one you can discard it from your backpack because it has been recorded as it having been caputred, there are 47 in total to be captured.
Zooming/Camera-panning During Cinemas
At any time during a cut scene you can zoom in on the action by pressing the Triangle button. The harder you push it, the closer it zooms in. Also, while zoomed in you can pan the camera around using the left analog stick.
Taming The Bees
After getting the hornet stripe camo (defeating The Pain via stamina kill) you have the ability to "tame" bees while wearing the hornet stripe uniform. Heres how you do it (while wearing hornet stripe camo): Shoot down a beehive while underneath it (or close enough to it so the bees fall NEAR you). The bees will then be swarming around you! Now go attack some enemys (or go near them) so they can feel the pain.
Extra Waterfall Scene with Eva
After you escape from the cell, don't use Cure to take out the transmitter in your back. If the transmitter is in you when you meet up with Eva behind the waterfall, there will be an extra very funny scene where she takes it out of you.
Extra Cut Scenes
When Snake is captured in the prison cell, do not eat the food the guard throws you. Instead, throw the food back out of the cell to the card. Continue to do this 2 more times for a total of 3 times and this will trigger a hidden cut scene.
Eat The End's parrot
In the cutscene that begins the battle against The End, his parrot flies away. Search the area using the Thermal Goggles and you will eventualy find a bird sitting in a tree or on a stump behind you. This is also a sign that The End is nearby. You can either kill the bird, which will trigger The End cursing your name and swearing revenge, or capture it. Either way the parrot still appears in the cutscene where The End dies. If you captured the bird, contact Para-Medic to have a conversation about the bird. It offers very little stamina but tastes good. If you killed or captured the bird, it also appears as a ghost during the battle against The Sorrow.
Call off alert
When you are in alert mode, grab a guard and interrogate him. He will give a radio frequency you can call to call off the alert. After the alert is over, the frequency changes.
Much like MGS2 :Sons of liberty, you can change the background when you first start the game. Try the following:
Press R3 to change the color of the background.
Press L3 to change the pattern of the background.
Press R1 to speed up the CQC scenes.
Press R2 to slow down the CQC scenes.
Use L1 and L2 to change the color of snake and the enemy.
And press Triangle to reverse the color of snake and the enemy.
When you steal Raikov's outfit in Groznyg Grad you hide Raikov's body in a locker room on the 2nd floor. Once you take his body in the room, a cut scene will start showing snake putting Raikov's body in a locker. If you look closely, you can quickly see a poster of Raiden from MGS2 on the inside of the door of the locker. This is the locker that contains the sneaking suit later.
Ocelot Time Paradox
After the cut scene where you first meet Ocelot, knife him to death. Once you kill him the game over screen will pop-up and say "OCELOT IS DEAD." Cambell will then yell at Snake for creating a time paradox.
After you're through with the torture and you're in your cell, leave the transmitter in that's lodged in you rather than extract it with the knife. When you get to the cave with Eva, you'll see a funny cut scene.
When fighting The End, if you sneak up behind him when he is asleep and hold him up, he shakes down and will eventually give you the camouflage moss.
Defeating Volgin on top of the Shagohod is the same as fighting it the first time. Take out your RPG and aim for the treads. When you hit the treads, you will stun the Shagohod and leave a window open to do damage to Volgin. You cannot hurt him unless you shoot him in the sides of the back. Make sure you are close enough to get behind him and unload with any gun. Do this to make quick work of Volgin.
In the battle against Volgin in the Shagohod hanger, put on the mask. Volgin will begin to say things like " Ivan?". This will make Volgin slightly more aggressive, and ake it easier to attack his back. However, his attacks will become more fierce.
When you are fighting The Boss at the field of daffodils, throw a grenade anywhere when you get the chance. If you hear the sound of an animal turning into a ration, put your thermal goggles on and look for the ration with a special snake inside. Press Start and look at your food. If you picked it up, you will have a snake named after one of the sons of Big Boss. You can eat it, and he loves it. If you do not find a ration or hear a sound, throw another grenade. Eventually you will get one. They are mostly near the rocks.
When Snake is stricken with food poisoning, use the "Sick Snake" trick to make him vomit. It will cure the food poisoning. Note: The "Sick Snake" can be done when standing and crouching.
In the scene where you have to reach the Wig with Eva injured, shoot her with a tranquilizer dart. She will pass out and begin to talk in her sleep. To wake her up again, go into the survival viewer and cure her with the knife. Alternately, you can kick her awake.
Hidden intermission sequence
In Groznyj Grad after the torture scene, you will wake up in the prison. Get the fork and remove the bullet, but do not remove the transmitter. Then, continue the game. Later when you meet Eva behind the water fall, there will be a funny extra intermission sequence that takes place after Snake pushes her away from the kiss. The extra scene will only play if you still have the transmitter in you at this point.
Opening the door in weapon lab and getting Skorpion
To open the door that requires a radio frequency, you must capture a guard. Hold the knife to him to get the information by pressing L3 (145.86). Call that while standing in front of door to open it. You should hear a click. Once inside the door, the very powerful Skorpion (includes laser sighting) can be found in the far northeast of the room, along with ammunition. Note: The room can only be entered through the door located to the east. The one to the west does not open until after the east door is opened.

Title Screen Fun
On the title screen the L3 button changes the pattern in the background. R1 speeds up action and R2 slows it down. L1 switches the black silhouette from the foreground to the background and L2 changes the color of the silhouette. L3 changes the color of the pattern in the background.
Spin snake in circles in the cure menu to make Snake throw up.
