  2. Hideo Kojima Message (JP Version Only)

    If you have a save game of Policenauts on your memory card when you fight Psycho Mantis, he will mention it as usual. However, if you have a save game of Policenauts and Snatcher, you will get a special message saying that you enjoy Hideo Kojima games. After this, Hideo Kojima himself will thank you for your support. Note that this only works on the Japanese version of the game.

  4. Castlevania Message

    If you have a save game of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on your memory card, Psycho Mantis will give you surprising message before you fight him.

    Contributed by: LaC2 

  5. Defeat Psycho Mantis with ease

    Make the boss fight with Psycho Mantis much easier by switching your controller to port 2 when the message HIDEO appears on your screen. If you do it correctly, Psycho Mantis will be unable to read your thoughts making the fight much easier.

  6. A more useful cardboard box

    When you're in the cave area with Meryl, hit her and quickly equip a cardboard box. She'll order a wolf to attack you, but if you're in a box, a wolf will pee on it instead. Now whenever that box is equipped the wolves will no longer attack you.

  7. Easily cross minefields.

    If you don't have the mine detector, but want to cross a minefield without having to worry about blowing up, just go up to the area where you believe mines are and crawl across the ground. Not only will you be unharmed, but you will also receive any claymore mines that you crawl over!

  8. Suikoden Message

    If you have a Suikoden Save Game on your Memory Card ,
    Psycho Mantis will give you special message regarding Suikoden when he reads your mind.

  9. Otacon's Ending

    To view Otacon's Ending instead of Meryl's ending after completing the game, submit to Ocelot's torture after being captured.

  10. Save message from Psycho Mantis

    If you save enough times before fighting Psycho Mantis he will tell you how wise you are for saving often.

    Contributed by: djmikso 

  11. Alternate Save Message from Psycho Mantis

    If you save less than three times before you fight Psycho Mantis, you will get a special message on how reckless you are.

  12. Meryl's Ending

    Resist Ocelet's torture to see a happy ending where everyone lives.

  13. How to make the Ninja free you

    After you are tortured, thrown in the cell, and called Otacon, the guard goes to the bathroom. Otacon comes, gives you a few things and then when he leaves and the guard comes back, let the guard go to the bathroom 2 more times. When the guard goes to the bathroom the second time, you'll hear something like a FAMAS. The Ninja comes and frees you!

  14. Ghost Picture of Hideo Kojima

    After you beat the Ninja, take your camera and take a picture of the picture of the big orange-like robots in Otacon's lab. When you've done it, reset and load the picture. You'll see a ghost picture of Hideo Kojima!

    Contributed by: Pin_Cheater 

  15. Mono TV

    Before the fight with the Hind D, change the audio settings from stereo to mono. During the fight, call Campbell twice. At first, he'll advise you to listen for the Hind D's rotors to know which direction it's coming from. However, he and the rest of the team be surprised when they discover you're using a mono TV.

  16. Meryl Undressed

    There are two different ways you can see Meryl without her pants on. When you're in the vents on the way to the DARPA chief, look down into Meryl's cell and watch her work out. Leave the vent, go back in, and watch her work out. Repeat this five or six times, and eventually she do the workout while undressed.

    The second way is when you have to find Meryl when she's pretending to be one of the soldiers. When she runs to the restroom, get to the last stall within five seconds. The cutscene will play out like normal, but she won't be wearing pants because she didn't have enough time to change.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  17. Blushing Meryl

    When you're with Meryl, stare directly at her in first person view for a minute or so. She'll get embarrassed and blush. The longer you do it, the brighter red her character model will become.

  18. Azure Dreams Message

    If you have a save game of Azure Dreams on your memory card when you fight Psycho Mantis, he'll mention it when you encounter him.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  19. Game Preference Messages

    Aside from the specific games Psycho Mantis can mention when you encounter him, there are a couple of extra messages that will appear if you have saves from several games on one memory card. He'll mention that you enjoy RPGs if you have a combination of at least two of these games: Suikoden, Azure Dreams, and Vandal Hearts. He'll mention that you enjoy Konami games if you have at least three games saved. These include the aforementioned ones, as well as Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  20. Tokimemo Message (JP Version Only)

    If you have at least two Tokimeki Memorial save games on your memory card, Psycho Mantis will comment on it when you encounter him. Note that this includes all PS1 Tokimeki Memorial games made 1998 and earlier. Also, this is exclusive to the Japanese version of the game.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  21. Konami Game Preferences Messages (JP Version Only)

    The classic Psycho Mantis memory card easter egg is far more extensive in the original Japanese version. Aside from specific games, he will mention the genres and studios you like based on different combinations of game saves from various titles. If you have at least two saves including Policenauts and the Tokimeki Memorial Drama Series Vol. 1 or 2, he'll comment that you like KCE Japan games. If Snatcher is included among those saves, he'll comment that you like Adventure games. If you have at least two saves including Mitsumete Knight and Tokimeki Memorial: Forever With You or Private Collection, he'll comment that you like dating sims. If you have at least two saves from Jikkyou Oshaberi Parodius, Gradius Gaiden, Susume or Tokimeki Memorial Taisen Puzzle Dama, he'll comment that you like Arcade games. If you have at least three saves from any of the aforementioned games, any of the TwinBee or Tokimeki Memorial games made in 1998 or earlier, or Lightning Legend, he'll comment that you like Konami games.

  22. Controlling Guards on Controller 2 During Escape Route

    During the escape sequence, if you plug in a controller into port 2, you can control some of the guards.

  23. Faster elevator

    Ever wanted to eliminate the risk of getting caught waiting for the elevator? Just go over to the call button an push it a second time, it will show up immediately. It's quite useful for speedruns!

    Contributed by: NitroPalm 

  24. Alternate Meryl Introduction

    There's an alternate scene of Snake and Meryl talking for the first time. If you haven't gotten the SOCOM by this point, Snake will grab the tip of Meryl's FAMAS instead of drawing the gun.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  25. Net Yaroze PlayStation

    When you're in Otacon's Lab, head to the center area and look closely at the desks. One of them will have a Net Yaroze PlayStation, complete with a DualShock controller.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  26. Extra Johnny Scene

    Once you escape from the holding cell, deliberately let Johnny see you, but don't attack him. Instead, let him chase you back into the torture room. This will trigger a brief scene in which his stomach gets the better of him yet again, and he runs to the nearby bathroom. You can even taunt him by knocking on the bathroom door while he's in there, and he'll groan in response.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  27. Cardboard Box Fast Travel

    The Cardboard Boxes have a secret use aside from stealth. When you come across a cargo truck, get into the back, equip a cardboard box, and don't do anything else. This will automatically trigger a cutscene in which a guard will notice the box and deliver you to another location. The destination depends on what's printed on the side of the box. Box A goes to the Heliport, Box B goes to the Nuclear Warhead Storage Building, and Box C goes to the Snowfield. This trick will significantly cut down on the time you need to spend on backtracking.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  28. Blast Furnace Crane Skip

    When you go through the Blast Furnace, you normally have to walk slowly along a narrow ledge while avoiding a moving crane. But if you have the Nikita or Stinger missiles, you can actually just shoot the crane. The explosions will severely damage it, letting you get past the ledge without any extra effort.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  29. Meryl Kills Snake

    If you hit Meryl, she'll hit back and deal a tiny amount of damage. However, it is possible to kill Snake using this method. If you intentionally get Snake's health down to the bare minimum and let Meryl punch him, it'll trigger a Game Over with Mei Ling saying a unique line: "This can't be!"

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  30. Ocelot's Save Warning

    If you haven't saved in a long time before the torture sequence begins, Ocelot will actually break the fourth wall to mention it, and extra line will be added to the cutscene. He'll warn you that it'll be game over if you die by torture, and asks, "You really wanna travel down that long road again?"

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  31. Alternate Ocelot Scene

    At the end of his boss fight, Ocelot will normally praise your skills and comment how long it's been since he's had such a good fight. But if you die repeatedly, it'll trigger a different scene. Ocelot will mock your performance and say you're not cut out for war. He'll also have a different reaction to the Cyborg Ninja.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  32. Women's Restroom Codec

    When you enter the women's restroom to talk to Meryl, stop and call Nastasha and Mei Ling first. Nastasha will be annoyed. But Mei Ling will be absolutely furious at Snake, and will even say she won't let you save.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  33. Raven Codecs

    When you're on the cargo elevator on the way down to the Vulcan Raven fight, take the time to kill several of the ravens around you. This will eventually trigger a call from Campbell and Naomi, who will be utterly disgusted by you. Also, an extra line will be added to Vulcan Raven's pre-battle cutscene; he'll yell at you for killing his friends.

    Alternatively, you can call Master Miller while on the cargo elevator. Snake will refer to the birds as crows, but Miller will correct him and explain that particular species of raven. This brief lecture will only appear if you call him while on the elevator, but before he calls to warn Snake about Naomi. If done correctly, he'll do the raven lecture first, and then say, "By the way..." and segue into the scripted Naomi conversation all within the same codec call. Also, any references to crows will be changed to ravens from that point forward.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  34. Campbell's Assessment

    Campbell will make different comments depending on how quickly you make it up the elevator at the beginning of the game. If you do it quickly, Campbell will say that age hasn't slowed Snake down one bit. But if you take too long, he'll say that Snake must be feeling a little rusty.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  35. Snake Goes Insane

    When Meryl gets shot by Sniper Wolf, don't retreat. Instead, shoot or throw explosives at Meryl as she's bleeding out on the ground. Meryl will weakly demand to know why Snake has betrayed her. This will also trigger multiple codec calls from Campbell and Naomi, who will yell at you to stop. For maximum effect, try shooting Meryl with one bullet at a time. Eventually, a horrified Campbell will proclaim that Snake has gone insane, and Naomi will call Snake a poor excuse of a man.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  36. Alternate SOCOM Dialogue

    In the first area of the game, do not pick up the SOCOM. Instead, go into the 1st floor vent. Turn left and follow the path all the way to the end. It'll trigger a cutscene in which the guards talk about the status of their supply of SOCOMs, and how the lock on one of the doors is broken.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  37. Exhausted Snake

    After you've finished the stairs sequence and made it onto the roof of the Communications Tower, immediately call Colonel Campbell before the next cutscene. This will trigger a unique Codec. Snake will be out of breath after climbing all those stairs. Naomi will mention that Snake's vital stats indicate he's exhausted. Campbell will jokingly ask Snake if he's out of shape from all the dog mushing he's done since retiring.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  38. Hidden Briefing Tape

    Choose the Briefing section from the main menu. After you've watched the first tape, immediately exit from the Briefing section without watching any of the other tapes. This will automatically trigger a hidden tape in which Snake outright refuses the mission, saying he wants to get back to his huskies at Twin Lakes. Campbell will responded with a more hostile tone, and will not-so subtly blackmail Snake into accepting the mission.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  39. Alternate Ketchup Codecs

    After you've escaped from the cell, call Otacon. The conversation will be different depending on how well/if you used the ketchup to escape. If you used it successfully, Snake will be in disbelief that it actually worked. If you failed or didn't use the ketchup at all, Snake won't understand what Otacon's idea was, and state that the guard was just careless.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  40. Hallway Cinematography

    After you've reached the hallway directly before Otacon's lab, take the time to examine the guards that the Cyborg Ninja just killed. If you crouch down near them, you'll find that every single body will be shown with cinematic camera angles. Some bodies have multiple camera angles to display them close-up, at a distance, or numerous bodies at the same time. Other angles can be seen by leaning against the wall next to the crater at the end of the hallway, as well as leaning against the wall where the hallway turns left. This trick also works with any plot-relevant character who dies and/or injured and is left lying on the ground.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  41. Running And Shooting At The Same Time

    Pressing both the Square and X Buttons in tandem will allow you to run and shoot at the same time. This makes the Revolver Ocelot fight, the Communications Tower stair sequence, and several other parts of the game much easier.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  42. PAL Key Rat

    At a certain point in the game, Snake has to retrieve the PAL Key that he dropped. Normally, the PAL Key falls somewhere in the drainage ditch surrounding Metal Gear REX. If you have less than 10 alerts by then in your playthrough, however, the PAL Key will be eaten by a rat instead. You'll find it scampering around the platform that REX is standing on, and there's a hole in the back wall near where the security camera is. You can also equip the Mine Detector to see its current location.

  43. Get Meryl's Codec Frequency Without CD Case

    After you've encountered the ArmsTech President, you're tasked with contacting Meryl in order to progress the story. Normally, you're supposed to look at the back of the real-life Metal Gear Solid game case (or look in the game's menu for digital versions), which shows Meryl's frequency. However, that's not the only way. Simply go to an area without any jamming - the Armory is the closest - and call Colonel Campbell repeatedly. After 3 or 4 times of repeating the same dialogue, Meryl's Codec frequency will be automatically added to the drop down menu of the Codec screen. Note that you don't have to hold any items to make this happen; just call Colonel Campbell a few times in a non-jamming area, and the game will do this on its own. If you skip the dialogue, this can be done in a matter of seconds.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  44. Meryl Makes Fun Of Snake

    After you've contacted Meryl, you're supposed to go through the laser room on the north side of the Tank Hangar. Instead, go back into the vents and crawl all the way back to the Heliport, then contact Meryl. She'll ask where you're going, tell you where you're supposed to go, and then laugh and say that the legendary Solid Snake is lost.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  45. Early Otacon

    When you get to Level B2 in the Nuke Building, don't go to the gas/electric floor hallway. When you get off the elevator, go to the east wall and lean up against it. The camera will pan over to the right and reveal Otacon, who is pacing in his lab on the other side of the wall. Unfortunately, he will not react to any knocking, explosives, etc.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  46. Alternate Deepthroat Introduction

    Normally, your first Codec conversation with Deepthroat happens when you reach the Canyon, and he'll warn you about Claymore Mines. However, this Codec conversation is not mandatory; ignore the call prompt when it comes up. When you finally reach the gas/electric floor hallway in the Nuke Building Level B2, it'll trigger a mandatory Codec call in which Deepthroat will warn you about the hazards. After that, dialogue will automatically segue into Deepthroat's introduction, since this is the first time Snake has talked to him.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  47. Confusing Otacon

    When Otacon comes to the jail cell, do not go to the door; that will trigger the cutscene. Instead, stand back (or even crawl under the bed) and call him on the Codec. He'll be confused, asking why you're using the Codec when he's standing right in front of you. This is the only moment in the game where you'll have the chance to see this Codec.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  48. Instantly Detonate Nikita Missiles

    When you're using the Nikita and want a fired missile to explode early, simply tap the R1 button to auto-unequip the Nikita. Just make sure that the missile is reasonably far away from Snake before trying this trick.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  49. Communication Towers Cinematography

    When you first make it to the roof of the Communications Tower A, be sure to take the time to look around before triggering the cutscene. In the northeast corner, there's a metal box connected to a duct. If you lean up against the box's southern side, the camera will switch to a unique cinematic angle, looking up at Snake from ground level, with the satellite dish framed dramatically in the background. You'll get a similar effect if you lean up against the southern side of the duct directly north of the door you used to access the roof. Leaning against the southern railing that lines the roof will also have some views of the dish. Leaning and moving along the eastern railing will cause the camera to pan over and reveal the bridge and adjoining tower roof. There's also another one hidden along the western railing immediately after you finish the rappelling section. There's another near the southeast corner of the top floor of Tower B, before you climb the ladder to fight Liquid; it gives you a close-up look at Snake's face, as well as how his goggles and weapons look when they're equipped.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  50. Blast Furnace Burning

    When you're in the Blast Furnace, try throwing the guards over the railings. Alternatively, you can use the Nikita or Stinger from a distance. If this is done over the lava floor, the guards will fall in and instantly burn up. This is the only room where you can see this death animation.

  9. Sniping In The Nuclear Warhead Storage Building

    When you enter the Nuclear Warhead Storage Building for the first time, you're prevented from firing any weapons while on the first floor, and none of your guns will work. When most players backtrack through there, they assume that it's the same case. But it's not. After you've acquired the PSG1 sniper rifle and return to the Nuclear Warhead Storage Building, do not crawl under the gate. Instead, get close to the partially open gate, and equip the PSG1. Since Snake has to lay flat in order to aim the sniper rifle, you'll be able to aim and shoot without entering the restricted area. As long as you don't shoot while soldiers are nearby and trigger an alert, you can pick off your enemies easily.

Metal Gear Solid Integral Cheats For PlayStation

  1. Title Screen Tricks

    At the title screen, press any of the directions on the D-Pad to change the background colors.

    Contributed by: KasketDarkfyre 

  2. First-Person View Mode

    The first-person view mode will be available in the special option once you have completed the game once, except with difficulty level, Very Easy. This mode will be quite similar to any Doom or Quake style games. To switch between first person view mode and normal mode, tap triangle twice rapidly. Note that your rank during your first play doesn't affect anything.

  3. New Codec Frequency

    In your codec, have you ever wonder what the last row and last columm for? Try calling frequency 140.07 to talk to the staff. Unfortuately, the conversations are in Japanese, so I don't know what they are talking about. There is no English voice-overs available.

    Contributed by: YSF 

  4. Alternate Outfits

    If you complete the game two times with both endings revealed and have stealth and Bandana as your special item, both Solid Snake and Cyborg Ninja will have their alternate outfits, tuxedo and Crimson red and blue cyborg suit when you play the game for the third time. So, what's the difference between the original Metal Gear Solid and the Metal Gear Solid Integral? The difference is, beside Solid Snake, and Cyborg Ninja, Meryl will now have a new outfit, which is like Snake's sneaking suit.

  5. Secret Music Codec

    There's a secret codec that plays music, but only works in specific areas. When you're in the Canyon, the entrance of the Comms Tower, or the Snowfield, call 140.66. It will play remixes of three different songs: "Discovery," "Zanzibar Breeze," and "Theme of Solid Snake."

    Contributed by: Cloud_668 

  6. Heliport Waves

    Once you've reached the Heliport and gained control of Snake, walk back to the edge of the cliff next to the elevator and stand still. If you listen closely and/or turn up the volume, you'll hear the sounds of waves crashing into the cliff far below the edge. This is the only part of the game where you'll ever hear that sound effect.

  7. Call Nastasha Early

    Nastasha Romanenko is one of your support team members, and is introduced to Snake via normal story progression. However, you can actually contact her as early as the Heliport; simply manually set the Codec to 141.52 and call her. Not only will she go through her introduction dialogue much earlier than normal, but she'll give breakdowns of your equipment, discuss the DARPA Chief's information, and even give some advice for dealing with Revolver Ocelot.

  8. Sleep Talking Soldiers

    When you encounter sleeping Genome Soldiers, get as close as you can without waking them up, and then look at them in first person mode. Eventually, you'll hear them say, "Who's that?!" in their sleep.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  9. Annoying Ocelot

    When you use the C4 to blast through the wall to reach Baker and the Revolver Ocelot fight, don't go in the room. Instead, try shooting or throwing grenades into the room. Despite not introducing himself yet, Ocelot will yell at you, demanding to know what you're aiming at. If you manage to kill Baker (you can even see him in first person view), Ocelot will call you an idiot on the Game Over screen.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  10. Liquid's Parachute

    After you've beaten Sniper Wolf, go to the southeast corner of the field. Press up against the fence or look at it in first person view. You'll see a white object stuck to the top of the fence. This will trigger a unique Codec, in which Snake tells the Colonel that he's found Liquid's parachute, and they discuss how Liquid is still alive.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  11. Vulcan Raven's Hidden Taunt

    During the Tank battle, Raven will occasionally do a thumbs-down taunting animation if Snake gets hit. But if your dodge the first 6 shots and get hit by the 7th, Raven will flex his arms instead.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  12. Electrified Cardboard Box

    When you reach the area with the gas and electrified floor, try equipping the cardboard box and walking on the floor. You'll be treated to a unique animation of Snake being electrocuted under the box.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  13. Look Around Before Torture Scene

    Right after Snake gets captured, he'll be taken to the torture room, and a cutscene will start. Snake will be on the torture machine, looking straight up at the ceiling. However, you can move the left stick or directional pads to make Snake move his head in attempt to struggle out of his restraints. You can also get a better glimpse of Liquid and the others in the brief moment when the machine's angle changes. This will also trigger an extra line of dialogue from Ocelot during the conversation, telling Snake not to bother because he's strapped down.
