I tried using the Yoshi guide on gamefaqs.com it was useful, but the Yoshis on the runway during the chase are hard to hit, as is the one at the end when you fight the boss. They are hard to see, let alone hit! I got all Yoshis yp to that point, and gave up, for me that kind of ruins the fun of the game.
ALERT! Our revamped walkthrough for Snake Eater will prove most useful on your mission to destroy the Shagohod, once and for all.
The abandoned factory is just to the north. The opening cut scene reveals some tight security with several sentries posted around the perimeter. There are two patrols to the factory’s south perimeter, one in the eastern corner, and three more hostiles patrolling throughout the factory. You must move carefully and avoid triggering an alert or you’ll have to deal with all interior and exterior guards at the same time.
Advance to the north until you reach the brick wall on the right side. Crawl through the brush ahead and spot the patrol along the path to your left. Look down the path toward the east and you will likely be able to spot the second guard. Make your move on the western guard while the eastern guard moves away. Shoot him in the head with a suppressed mk22 or sneak up behind him and perform a close-quarters combat move. Drag him away from the factory and toward the south as you check his body for items. Watch for the eastern patrol to move along the path toward the western side and use your mk22 or wait until he turns around and sneak up for a close-quarters move.
Crawl to the southern edge of the factory and watch for the patrols inside. One guard patrols the southwestern corner of the factory while two others move through the rooms to the north and northeast. Hide behind the crates and watch for the western guard’s patrol and take him out with the suppressed mk22. One last guard remains outside the factory along the eastern edge. Take him out now or wait until you move over there to eliminate him.
Reaching the rooftop is an alternate method of eliminating the guards inside the factory. After taking out the first two patrols, sneak to the far eastern side of the factory’s exterior. Eliminate the other patrol here then climb the ladder onto the roof. Navigate the roof carefully toward the west and spot the patrols below. Shoot each patrolling guard with the mk22.
Search near the crates in the southwestern corner of the abandoned factory for the M37 shotgun. Ascend the stairs and find XM16E1 ammo and a XM16E1 suppressor. Go into the storage room to the east of the stairs and locate a life med in the back corner. You can also crawl underneath the factory to find a mousetrap underneath (may also find some food to kill). After searching the area, proceed into the adjacent room to the east and enter the northern door to find Sokolov.
Watch the extended cut scene and leave the unconscious Ocelot alone (though you can search the bodies). Exit Rassvet and return south into Dolinovodno. After the extended cut scene, a wounded Snake must mend his wounds before continuing onward. Open up the survival window then the cure section. Mend the broken bones with splints and bandages; mend the cuts with disinfectant, styptic, suture kit, and bandages.
You’re dropped into Dremuchij for a second time with new orders. Rescue Sokolov, find out what’s happened to the Shagohod and destroy it and finally eliminate The Boss. Press the R button during the opening cut scene for Snake’s view during the drop.
There are no enemies in this area but there is food. Hunt around the area for snakes, frogs, and fruit in the trees to add to your reserves. There are also plants that convert into medical items. Find them along the area’s edge. Use your thermal goggles recovered previously and you can find the plants easier. Check your camo to maximize stealth. Black face paint and tiger stripe uniform should be ideal. Continue through the northern path to find the area’s exit.
Traverse the forest path until you encounter the cliff edge going west. Drop off to the ground below. If you need additional food, take the time to hunt snakes (including one in a tree as you continue west) before reaching the intersection toward the western edge. A cut scene interrupts the action when you reach the intersection and the crashed drone.
Your eventual goal lies to the north--back to the abandoned factory. However, if you want to take a brief side trip to gather some items, proceed south from the intersection. Move carefully, though. The ruckus at the crash site has gained the attention from a small patrol. Sneak carefully to the south if you take the side trip; the southern route leads into the Dremuchij Swampland.
Navigate the swamp and avoid the crocodiles. Continue across the swampland and into the southern passage to reach the next area.
This is your original landing site in the Virtuous Mission. It’s worth the side trip here, especially if you’re low on food. Hunt snakes, rabbits, and even a goat to add to your food storage. Snip medicinal plants to add splints and other cure items to your inventory. Also find an assortment of grenades from the west and eastern sides of the southern section. After exploring the area, return to the north and move through the swampland. Continue toward the intersection in Dremuchij North at the crash site.
Two guards patrol the western edge of the map near the intersection and crash site. Approach the area carefully by taking cover or remaining in a prone position. When the guards move away from each other, sneak up behind and attack with a close-quarters move or use a stun grenade if necessary. Careful camouflage will allow you to sneak by undetected. Continue north into the next area.
I am tryng to get the "whale" rank and capture all 48 animals, but can only get 45-47, can anyone help?, I need to know what all the animals are and where to find them?
After playing This game for what seems like the 100th time i noticed there was a climbable tree in Svatagornja west that had a place at the top where you could stand or crouch on, but when i went and restarted the game it wasn't there anymore, if it was I couldn't find it, it seems that there are a few things that are like that, they are there and you notice them, but when you go back to see them later they arfe gone!
Does any one know what the best effective way to stamina kill volgin is?, I have tried the stun guns, there's not emough time and a combo of stun guns and stun grenades, and I only get him half way, then time runs out!
@Padaman How do you get stealth camo?
@JGlascock He Asked, So I Gave Him Both Ways.
It's easier to go thru the game w/ no alerts, there are a few Yoshis that are hard to find, let alone hit!
@PadamanI got it, but I still cant get the cold war camo, but oh well, the stealthcamo is far better than all !btw what did you use for the photo camo in granins office? and... where are the locations of that "legendary snake" the tsukinoko?
@JGlascock for tsukinoko granininy(sp?) gorki south at night. use mousetraps by the closest climbalbe tree to the entry. i'll send you the pic for the photo-camo tomorrow
Thanks bud! I looked on wikia at the cold war camo, since I still can't unlock it, it's not as cool as I thought it would be, but there is a website that has pics of downloadable camo for Snake!
Is the stealth camo unlockable on the 3ds version?, if so, how do you sneak past the scientists when leaving Granins office so they don't cause an alert to go, since the stealth camo is only unlockable with no alerts in the game.
2 more questions, about MGS 3d, how do you get the crocodile cap?, and has the GA-KO uniform been switched for the fruit uniform for 3ds, I could not find the GA-KO unifoem in the northeastern end of the swamp, only the fruit uniform. one last question, what are all the obtainable uniforms and face paints and weapons?
On MGs what is the radio frequency to find TheEnds location on the map/, also what is the set of numbers displayed by the floating figure in the cut scene right before you fight Volgin? (MGS for 3ds).
@JGlascock Little Late, But It Is Not A Codec Frequency, It Is The Konami code, Up Up Down down Left Right Left Right B A. And That Is the Sorrow With A Timer for the C3.
@JGlascock I Havent Exactly Tried It My Self, A Friend Of Mine Said It Worked And He Is Usually A Reliable Source Of Information. Have You Tried It?
