Fun With Guards

  • PS Vita
  • hint

When dressing up as Major Raikov, you can get away with hitting enemies etc and they won't touch you. PLUS, you can also trigger the alert alarm by pressing triangle near one of the red alarm stations, this will send two or more guards to your area, where you can beat them unconscious and take any items they may be holding.

Extra Cut Scenes

  • PS Vita
  • hint

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.

Extra Information in Codec Screen

  • PS Vita
  • hint

After so many calls, more "slideshow" images will open up for each person you talk to in your Codec. Each person has (at least) two additional personal information pages, usually accompanied by an interesting picture. To get this, call each person multiple times, after so many times, the images will open one at a time.

EVA Doesn't Lose Stamina.

  • PS Vita
  • hint

At the part where you must carry EVA through the jungle, you can tranquilize her with the EZ gun, and she won't lose any stamina...therefore, saving you food for when you really need it.

Easy Way to Get Out of the Cell

  • PS Vita
  • hint

When you get into the cell after being tortured go into the survival viewer, and press R1 to look at snake closer. Spin Snake around in there for about 20 seconds, go back into the game and run for a little bit and Snake will spew. The guard will come in the cell asking whats wrong...knock him out and leave the cell.

Eat The End's Parrot

  • PS Vita
  • hint

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.

Easily Deplete The Fear's Stamina

  • PS Vita
  • hint

While fighting The Fear, his main tactic is to jump from tree to tree in order to get the best shot possible on you. However, this depletes his stamina rather quickly, and like Snake, he needs to eat in order to keep himself going strong. As The Fear's stamina gauge decreases, he'll stop trying to attack you and begin using his crossbow to hunt for food instead. If he manages to catch enough of the local food sources, he will regenerate his stamina gauge; if you're a fan of scoring stamina kills on the bosses in order to get the secret uniforms in the game, The Fear's eating habits make it very difficult to deplete his stamina gauge in an honorable manner.

 

Thankfully, there is a cheap way to bypass the entire process. As soon as the battle starts, take poisoned pieces of food you have on stock and throw it into the middle of the area, then proceed to go on with the battle as you would normally. When The Fear's stamina gets low, he will cease to hunt for food and will instead go right for the food you threw out for him! Not only does this prevent The Fear's stamina from increasing, but it will actually decrease his stamina as well. Even better is that he'll stand there puking his guts up, which gives you all sorts of time to blast him with shots from your tranquilizer gun.

 

It should be noted that the best place to harvest poisoned food is in the very area in which you fight The Fear himself; you have to go through it en route to the science lab before fighting The Fear on the way back. The area is full of poison frogs and poison mushrooms, so make sure to stock up in advance. The more poisoned food you throw out at the beginning of the fight, the easier a time you'll have.

Distract Voligin

  • PS Vita
  • hint

Before you fight Volgin be sure to capture a living tree frog. When you are fighting him equip the tree frog as a weapon and throw it somewhere where volgin will see it. After he sees it he should say something then jump back he will then be vulnerable for a few seconds(until he kills the frog) allowing you time to get a few cheap shots in.
