Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Cheats For PlayStation 2

  1. Skip The End boss battle.

    After caves and after the river with the guards on the hovercrafts, enter the next area and a cutscene will begin. As soon as the cutscene ends pull out your SVD sniper rifle and aim it at The End in his wheelchair. Before he gets taken away, shoot the guard in the head, then shoot The End in the head a few times. If done corectly The End will say something and explode. Later in the game when you get to the jungle where the fight was supposed to be, you wont have to fight him and the jungle will be filled with guards from the Ocelot unit.

  2. Metal Gear Acid Password

    When entering "Graniny Gorki Lab, 1F" (An area in which you must wear the scientist disguise), interrogate the first guard you see in the lobby. The 3rd time you interrogate him, he'll reveal a password for Metal Gear Acid: "J E H U T Y"

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Kojima Game's models

    In the office of Granin, there are models of things from other games Hideo Kojima Made. There is a model of Metal Gear Rex from Metal Gear Solid 1, A model of Metal Gear Ray from metal gear solid 2, and a model of Jehuty from Zone of the enders 1 and/or 2.

  6. Ocelot Time Paradox

    After the cut scene where you first meet Ocelot, knife (or shoot if you have the Patriot) 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.

  7. 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.

  8. The 3 Sons Snakes

    During the final battle with The Boss, equip the Thermal Goggles and search for 3 snakes in the field. These snakes are Snake Liquid, Snake Solid, and Snake Solidus. Anyone who has played 'Sons of Liberty' will notice that they are the names of the three 'Sons of Big Boss'. Each snake has a great taste and recovers a great amount of stamina.

    Contributed by: volcansnake 

  9. 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.

  10. Call off alert

    When you are in alert mode, grab a guard and interrogate him. He might give a radio frequency you can call to call off the alert. After the alert is over, the frequency changes.

    Contributed by: Brett777 

  11. 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.

    Contributed by: Major Raikov 

  12. Secret R1 Cutscenes

    At three points during the ending, you can hold R1 to look around in first person. It is not indicated that you can use R1 but it's there. There are some small hidden things that can only be seen this way.

    Contributed by: Video Gamer Z 

  13. 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 48 in total to be captured.

  14. Title Screen Change

    After beating the game once, Snake will have an eyepatch on during the CQC fights he has with the Russian guard at the title screen.

    Contributed by: KurtCobain1994 

  15. Extra information in Codec screen

    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.

    Contributed by: HeeroAC195 

  16. Revolver Ricochet

    As demonstrated by Major Ocelot early in the game, the bullets on the Colt Single Action Army revolver are capable of ricocheting. Simply equip the SAA and fire at a non-volatile structure such as a rock formation, metal crate or wall and watch the bullet deflect off the surface. If mastered properly, this can be used to shoot enemies hiding behind structures or even around corners!

  17. What do you like?

    When beginning a new game you are prompted with three questions:
    "This is my first MGS game"
    "I like MGS1"
    "I like MGS2"
    Selecting this is my first MGS game has the regular opening. Selecting I like MGS1 makes your stamina drop slower. Selecting I like MGS2 gets you a special intro.

    Contributed by: Snake19 

  18. Make Eva vomit

    Similar to making Snake spew, when you're escorting Eva to the lake, go into the cure option in the Survival Viewer to look at Eva and then use the analog sticks to spin her around several times. When you resume gameplay, Eva will vomit. Repeat this enough times and she will complain about stomach cramps and say other funny comments but this will also diminish her stamina quicker.

    Contributed by: PyroJames 

  19. Secret R1 Cutscenes

    At the end of Virtious Mission, Hold R1 in the cutscene after Snake has healed himself. You will be able to look around when it is not indicated that you can and you can see The Sorrow's body.

    After you've climbed the mountain, hold R1 during the cutscene where Snake is spying on Volgin on the base. You can see The Boss ride off on her horse and EVA do the "handgesture".

    After being tortured, hold R1 as Ocelot leaves the room. The Boss does the "handgesture".

    After defeating the Shagohod, hold R1 and when EVA goes to hug Snake you can see The Sorrow behind her.

    After defeating The Boss, when her horse walks up, hold R1. You can see the ghosts of The Boss and The Sorrow.

    When the President goes to shake Snake's hand, hold R1 and look to the left. Ocelot is outside the window.

    When Snake is at the graveyard, hold R1. His eye tears up and you can't see much.

  20. Quick Draw Revolver Duel

    During the battle with Major Ocelot, if you unequip your current weapon and stand out in the open for a few seconds, there were be a secret cutscene where Ocelot accepts Snake's challenge for a quick-draw duel. Ocelot will then stand and face off against Snake and the game will automatically switch to First Person View. Quickly equip your weapon again and when you're ready, aim your weapon and fire! (The object of a quick draw duel is to draw your weapon first and fire but not cheat by drawing too early.)

    Contributed by: PyroJames 

  21. No Damage Through Torture

    Hold L2 during the entire torture sequence to not recieve any damage when Volgin punches you. It must remain held down until cutscene where he leaves otherwise any damage that would have been done is still dealt.

    Contributed by: MGRaiden 

  22. Extra scene in Quick Draw

    At the end, when you do the quick draw with Ocelot. Pick the gun on the left, when you can shoot do not shoot at all. A hidden cutscene will happen with Ocelot talking about why you didn't shoot the gun.

    Contributed by: Menji 

  23. Revolver Freestyle Twirling Duel

    Similar to the Quick Draw duel. When you meet Major Ocelot at Bolshaya Past Crevice, simply equip the Single Action Army revolver but instead of firing, use the R3 button (Right Analog Stick) to twirl your revolver repeatedly. In a secret scene, Ocelot will then confront you and also twirl his revolver to show off his freestyle twirling tricks. Depending on how you twirl your revolver, he will compliment or criticize you accordingly.

    Contributed by: PyroJames 

  24. See naked Raiden again

    When obtaining the uniform from Raikov, the guy who looks and attacks like Raiden, shoot him in the crotch to kill him. During your battle with The Sorrow, a naked raiden will walf down the river hiding his privates, complete with bluring.

    Contributed by: PurgatoryCell 

  25. Listening to Granin

    After your meeting with Granin, his door will become locked to you but you can still listen to him inside his office. After a few minutes he will start mumbling some curious things while half asleep.

    Contributed by: Jupasto 

  26. Bats in Cave

    In the cave, bats attack you if you run. But if you use the active sonar and send out a 'ping', the bats will stop coming after you. That is because bats use sonar to see, they attack the strange noises snake is making and using the sonar tricks them into thinking you are just another bat.

    Contributed by: MujariMojo 

  27. See an MGS2 Poster

    During the cut-scene when Snake stuffs Major Raikov into the locker, on the door of the locker, there is a poster with a picture of Raiden and the text 'Metal Gear Solid 2' on it

    Contributed by: typeyourname 

  28. Another Metal Gear Acid Password

    In the Snake Eater Mission, go to compound area where the Hind sits. You'll know it's the right area because you'll see the Hind (Helicopter) grounded with noone piloting it. Interrogate the guard closest to the front door entrance of the largest building two or three times and he'll give you a password for Metal Gear Acid: V I P E R (Viper).

    Contributed by: Cannabisia 

  29. Tight Space GLITCH.

    First equip the binoculars, then quick unequip.
    Enter a tight space, like a vent, and as SOON as the camera begins to move into 'Intrusion Mode' aka First Person immediatly equip the binoculars. You will continue to move forward WITH the binoculars equiped, but you will not be able to control Snake at all, except to unequip the binoculars, which will then return everything to normal.

  30. Eva's Dream of Snake

    When you are in the woods with Eva, shoot her with the tranquilizer gun. Walk right up to her while she is asleep (you may have to crouch). She will begin saying interesting things in her sleep.

    Contributed by: WagonTronk 

  31. Starving and poorly equipped enemies

    Throughout the game, you will find several storehouses of food (Where you'll find items like Instant Noodles and Calorie Mates) and ammunition (Often where you find new weapons). If you have some TNT in your inventory, plant a piece inside a storehouse, stand back, and detonate it. You'll know the trick worked if the room becomes charred and black. If you do this to a food storehouse, enemies in the nearby screens will complain about their hunger, helping you detect them easily. If you destroy an ammo warehouse, guards will have only one clip of AK ammo, then they will switch to a pistol, and eventually they will have to use a knife.

    Contributed by: Janors 2 

  32. Motion Capture Actors

    During a cut scene, if you see the name of the character, the name in the parentheses is the voice actor. If you hit O, the name will change to the name of the character's motion capture actor.

    Contributed by: yeg0 

  33. Modern Day Gaming Mags in 1964

    If you look around in the military bases throughout the game (Groznyj Grad, Graniny Gorki, etc.) you can find several modern day gaming magazines on tables, including EGM, GMR, and a few others. Shoot these magazines with a weapon and they will open to a page about Snake Eater. Shoot them again and they will flip to the back cover.

    Contributed by: Janors 2 

  34. Poisoning Enemies

    Destroy a food storehouse and wait for the guards to start complaining about their hunger. Kill a poison animal (Such as a Poison Dart Frog) and equip it as a weapon. Throw it near a guard and he will eat it. In a few seconds he will collapse from the poison and die.

  35. The End's Mercy

    While fighting The End, climb a tree onto a ledge that is easily accessible to the old man. Lay down and take out your sniper rifle, go into first person, and search the trees, not necessarily looking for The End. You will eventually hear his footsteps behind you, but do not turn around. You will get a short cut scene where The End finds you and shoots you one with his rifle. Instead of killing you he says that you don't deserve to die that easily. He then proceeds to pick Snake up and carry him to the nearby jail where he will eventually awaken.

  36. Body full of crossbow bolts

    When fighting The Fear, before you beat him, let him hit you a few times with his crossbow. The bolts will stay in your body, and you are supposed to remove them through the Cure menu. If you beat him, you will automatically be healed fully, but the bolts will still be stuck in you for the rest of the game. If you go to your Cure menu, you will see them sticking out of you, but you can't remove them. They are visible with any camo you wear, but not visible during cutscenes.

  37. An Old Favorite

    While traveling with EVA, grab her, and interrogate her. She'll tell you a code that involves directions but then she'll say that she doesn't remember the rest of it. The code EVA was talking about was the famous 30 lives cheat code from Contra on the NES.

    Contributed by: Lady Nintendo 

  38. The End starts the battle with less Health/Stamina

    If you shoot The End with the SVD (sniper rifle) at the Ponizovje Docks, but DO NOT kill him (he'll wheel himself through the red door), he will start with less Health/Stamina when you fight him later in the game.

    Contributed by: Faust Orinitia 

  39. Johnny Sasaki deja vu

    After being captured and waking up in the cell, throw back the food 3 times to see the scene where the soldier tells you his and his sons name (Johnny). Now wait a few minutes, Johnny will bend over, hold his stomach and will then run to the toilet. As a bonus, he will say some hilarious sentences like "Wow, that's a record!" or "Will that even flush?"

  40. Volgin's lightning

    When fighting Col. Volgin throw a Russian glow cap and it will absorb his lightning attacks for a little bit.

  41. Snake’s dream

    When Snake gets puts in the jail cell. Save the game and turn the system off. Turn it back on and go to your saved game file. Load it and you will see a mini-game were you are this Zombie hunter guy and you can go around and kill zombies.

    Contributed by: GunBladeMan 

  42. Parrot to your advantage

    During your battle with The End, if you capture his parrot (use a tranquilizer pistol) and then set it free, the parrot will squawk and circle over The End’s head; revealing his sniper position and allowing you to shoot him. After you shoot him, The End will then relocate and you can recapture the parrot and repeat this method until The End is defeated. If you find it difficult to recapture the parrot, move to another Sokrovenno area and then return and the parrot should be perched at one of its usual spots. If you find it difficult to spot the parrot circling over The End, use your directional microphone and listen for The End scolding his [loud mouth] parrot.

    Contributed by: PyroJames 

  43. Defeat The End easily

    When you enter the fighting area for the first time, save your game and quit. Go into the clock settings of your PS2 hardware and set the clock forward a couple of years. Load up the game and you will find that The End has died from old age!!

  44. Fun with guards

    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.

    Contributed by: Gincairn 

  45. Hint : Anger Volgin

    When fighting Volgin the first time you can wear the Ivan’s(Raiden's) mask and he will think you are the major and hesitate from attacking you. You will have a chance to shoot him a few times without him attacking. He will realize who you are after a while and become angry and attack more frequently.

    Contributed by: TRin12 

  46. Easily deplete The Fear's stamina

    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.

  47. Make yourself fall asleep.

    You can make yourself fall asleep by equiping the hankerchief, and wiping it in the air about 3 times. After the 3rd time "Z's" will appear above your head and you will collaspe!

    Contributed by: No_1_LP_Fan 

  48. Distract Voligin

    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.

  49. Raikov's Bowel Troubles

    After destroying the food storehouse for Groznyj Grad, go to the bathroom stall that Raikov retreats to and drop some rotten food. Wait for Raikov to enter the stall and he will eat the food. The door will lock and Raikov will begin to experience some extreme bowel troubles! Knock on the door for some humorous dialogue.

    Contributed by: Janors 2 

  50. Yet another metal gear acid password:

    This guy is located in the back of groznyj grad main wing (The place with the shagohod). If you interrogate him he should say, "Metal Gear Acid password, K A R E N".

    Contributed by: raijin_fujin 

  51. EVA doesn't lose stamina.

    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.

    Contributed by: latin_boi 

  52. Dazing a Guard

    Whenever the '!' or '?' icon appears above an enemy's head, and you shoot it, (this is tricky) the the guard appear to be intoxicated and have some white bubbles floating from his head, giving you a few seconds to either run away, or to attack the dazed guard.

    Contributed by: sinncross 

  53. Dazed and Confused

    When dealing with an enemy, shagohod mechanic, or scientist, make a noise and hide. Make sure you'll be able to see over the enemy's head. When a question mark comes over their head, shoot it. This will confuse the enemy for a short period of time by showing sparks fly out of their head and them stumbling around.

    Contributed by: Jimps043 

  54. Open Locked Doors in Grozynj Grad

    You can open all of the electronic doors that only open for Raikov by throwing a live captured animal in front of the doors to open them. When the animal crawls in front of the door, it will open allowing you to obtain the items before you get the Raikov uniform.

    Contributed by: STG_Deathbot 

  55. Another Acid Password

    Its the guard you see on the second floor, when you first enter Groznyj Grad Weapons Lab: East Wing. Interrogate him to get the Acid... Password... X M E I G H T.

    Contributed by: STG_Deathbot 

  56. Easy way to get out of the cell

    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.

    Contributed by: Tster01 

  57. Hidden poster in drone R1 scene

    During the intro scene for Operation Snake Eater, you have the opportunity to press R1 to view part of the scene through Snake's view (the interior of the cockpit). When you do so, if you look all the way up (past all the instruments), you'll be able to see a poster of Yumi Kikuchi, a Japanese voice actress who had parts in Comic Party, Mahoromatic, Kakyuusei, and other shows.

    Contributed by: dUc0N 

  58. Get past The Sorrow easily

    When you have to face The Sorrow at the river, instead of following him, you simply crouch down on to the floor, and keep your head down and drown yourself. Then the usual cutscene will appear showing you escaping the battle.

    Contributed by: Merray 

  59. Get out of cell easy

    After Volgin leaves the room after torturing you, Snake and Eva will be alone when the R1 button is prompted you can see some one behind with a board and a Codec number writen on it when your in the Cell call it and It will say "The door is open now".

    Contributed by: Xenoblade 

  60. Game Developers

    In the fight with The Sorrow, go to your backpack and take out your camera and take pictures of all The Bosses, including Th Sorrow's Dead body, when you look at it, you will see the faces of the Game Developers.

    Contributed by: DemonKiller007 

  61. Ocelot helps you

    When fighting Volgin, first phase, throw some man-made food (Calorie Mate, Rations, Instant Noodles, etc) to Ocelot, and Ocelot will give Life Recovery Medicine or SAA rounds in return!

    Contributed by: Altre_U 

  62. Distracting Ocelot

    When you fight Ocelot at Bolshaya Past, try shooting down the beehives from the trees above him. He'll briefly fend the bees off and leave himself wide open to attack. You can shoot off his beret as well.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  63. Shooting Guard Radios

    If you aim carefully, you can shoot the guards' radios. Doing so will cause them to malfunction and prevent the guards from calling an alert. However, it also prevents them from calling off an alert.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  64. Blowing Up Flamethrower Soldiers

    When you're fighting the flamethrower-wielding soldiers, try sneaking behind them and shooting their fuel tanks. They'll be set on fire and dance around in panic before blowing up.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  65. Cutting The Bridge

    When you're crossing the bridge at Dolinovodno, try cutting the support ropes with your knife. This will make the bridge increasingly unsteady, and can be used to easily get rid of pursuing guards.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  66. Messing With Sokolov

    During the Virtuous Mission, don't go to Sokolov directly. Instead, stay outside and stand near the room where he's hiding. You can elicit unique responses if you knock on the wall, shoot out the windows, or throw in live animals. You can even throw in a grenade, but that will cause a Game Over.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  67. Live Animal Distractions

    You can distract guards by throwing live animals at them. If you throw a snake or any other dangerous animal, they'll briefly engage in a fight. It's possible to even kill guards this way via poison.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  68. Cannibalism Via Vulture

    When you're going through the Krasnogorje Mountainside area, kill a guard and let a vulture feed on his body. Then kill and eat the vulture. Later on during The Sorrow battle, you'll encounter the ghost of the soldier, who will yell at you specifically for eating him.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  69. Torching The Fear

    During the fight with The Fear, use the Fake Death Pill. The Fear will come over to investigate, then turn his back to you. When he's not looking, revive yourself and stay in either the crouching or crawling stance. Get right behind him and light your torch, and he'll catch on fire and quickly take damage. Due to a programming bug, however, he won't react to being attacked. This method will not kill him completely, but it will leave him with only a sliver of health.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  70. Drowning Guards

    If you're near a body of water and want to quickly dispose of unconscious guards, you can throw them in the water. Instead of waking up, they'll simply drown after a few seconds. This trick also works with pools of quicksand.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  71. Electrocuting Guards

    Whenever you're in an area near an electric fence, try grabbing an enemy and shoving them into the fence. Doing so will immediately kill them.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  72. Seeing In The Cave

    When you first fall into the cave, you won't be able to see anything due to the lack of light. This is usually remedied by equipping the cigar or finding the torch. However, the lighting will gradually improve on its own if you wait long enough. This simulates Snake's vision naturally adjusting to the darkness.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  73. Destroy The Hind Early

    If you have some spare TNT, you can blow up the Hind helicopter at the Bolshaya Past base. Doing so will change the enemies you face later at Krasnogorje Mountainside; the helicopter will be replaced by flying platform soldiers.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  74. Alternate Intros For The Fury

    There are two alternate versions of The Fury's introduction. Before you drop down into the area where you fight The Fury, equip and light the torch. The cutscene will depict Snake dramatically tossing the torch away and pulling out his knife. You can trigger a different version by equipping the NVGs beforehand instead. If you have both the NVGs and the torch equipped at the same time, only the NVG version will play.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  75. Knifing The Fury's Suit

    Normally, the The Fury's flameproof suit will tear open once it's taken enough shots. This makes him more vulnerable to things like Stun Grenades, tranquilizers, and fire. However, you can speed this process up by sneaking up on The Fury at the start of the fight and attacking him with the knife. One knife combo will tear his suit, and he'll be vulnerable for the entire battle.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  76. Put Out The Fury's Fires

    During the fight with The Fury, take a closer look at the ceiling. Each hall is lined with large red pipes. If you shoot the pipes, they'll start leaking water and put out any fires blocking your way.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  77. Groznyj Grad Delivery

    When you reach the exterior of Groznyj Grad, look for a delivery truck on the western side of the base, under the arch near the tanks. Alternatively, there's another delivery truck in the northeast section, near the food storehouse. Climb in and equip a cardboard box. Doing so will trigger a cutscene in which a guard reads your box label and delivers you into one of the areas inside Groznyj Grad. The place to which you're delivered depends on which box you use. Box A leads to the East Wing of the Weapons Lab. Box B leads to the Shagohod Hangar. Box C leads to an armory in the eastern part of the fortress.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Cheats For 3DS

  1. Twirl the Colt Single Action Army!

    Once you get the Single Action Army, you can twirl it by moving the 3DS system while in FPS aiming mode. This allows you to show off Snake's skill with a revolver and distract Ocelot during your duel with him at Bolshaya Past Crevice. When you're in the open, twirl your revolver and Ocelot will respond with his own revolver tricks and commentary.

    Contributed by: OmegaZero633 

  2. Reloading Faster

    Some weapons, such as the RPG-7, take a long time to reload. To skip the extra reloading animations, just equip another weapon, and then immediately switch back.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  3. Figurines In Granin's Office

    During the cutscene in Granin's office, use the camera to pan around the room. You'll find figurines of Metal Gear REX, Metal Gear RAY, and Jehuty, which are from the previous Metal Gear Solid and Zone of the Enders games respectively.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  4. Skip The Sorrow Battle

    During the battle with The Sorrow, immediately lie down in the water. You'll eventually drown, thus prompting the Game Over screen. Instead of choosing the usual options, use the Revival Pill in your inventory; doing so skips the entire fight and allows you to continue the mission.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  5. Escape The Jail Cell Easily

    During the part where Snake is locked up in a jail cell, access your radio and set the frequency to 144.75. Doing so automatically unlocks the cell door.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  6. Kill The End Early

    After walking through the cave and the river at Ponizovje, you'll see a cutscene. As soon as the cutscene ends, equip your SVD sniper rifle and aim it at The End. If you shoot quickly and accurately enough, you can kill The End and skip his boss battle later on. There will be a platoon of soldiers to fight instead.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  7. Confusing Volgin

    As soon as you start the fight against Volgin, equip the Raikov Mask. Volgin will then become confused, allowing you to walk right up to him and start attacking.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  8. Skip The End Battle

    As soon as you start the battle with The End, save your game and quit. Go to the 3DS menu settings and change the system date to over one week in the future. When you return to the game, you'll find that The End has died of old age, allowing you to continue without fighting him.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  9. Motion Capture Actor Credits

    Whenever a character's name and voice actor credit appears onscreen during their introduction cutscene, press the A button. The voice actor's name will be replaced by that of the motion capture actor.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  10. Capturing The Pain's Hornets

    When you fight The Pain, he'll occasionally perform an attack where a swarm of hornets will attach themselves onto Snake and cause damage. The normal way to get past this is to dive into the water. With a little planning beforehand, however, you can counter this with an unusual strategy. In the early areas of Operation Snake Eater, collect as many Baltic Hornet Nests as you possibly can. During the boss fight, equip the nests and let The Pain's hornets attach as usual. When they disperse, check your food inventory. Each Baltic Hornet Nest will be upgraded to a R.P.H Hive, which never spoils and completely restores all four of Snake's stamina bars.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  11. Graniny Gorki Shortcut

    Once you reach the Graniny Gorki Lab Exterior, equip the Scientist Uniform and walk right up to the nearest guard. It'll trigger a brief scene in which the guard mistakes you for a scientist trying to escape. You'll be put in an open cell inside Graniny Gorki. This saves you the time and effort of trying to infiltrate the building the normal way.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  12. Poisoning The Fear

    The Fear's biggest weakness is his stamina. It rapidly depletes throughout the battle, forcing him to climb down from the trees and hunt for food. With some preparation, you can take advantage of this. Save up some spare food and let it rot. Alternatively, you can stock up on poison animals and plants. You can find several of these in the forest before Graniny Gorki, which is where you fight The Fear on the way back. At the start of the battle, throw as much rotten and poison food as you can onto the battlefield. The Fear will inevitably get hungry and eat some. Not only does this drastically reduce his stamina and makes him sick, but it leaves him wide open to follow-up attacks.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  13. Escort Sleeping EVA

    The easiest way to escort EVA is to knock her unconscious, preferably with the EZ Gun or similar weapon. While she's sleeping, she won't lose stamina. That means you can save more food and supplies for yourself. It also reduces the risk of you getting spotted; you can leave EVA hidden somewhere, quietly take out the guards, and keep dragging her to the exit.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  14. Absorbing Volgin's Electricity

    Volgin's most common attack is shooting an arc of electricity, which instantly homes in on whatever metal weapon you have equipped. However, you can avoid this by throwing Russian Glowcaps around the room. They attract and absorb the electricity, which allows you to quickly bypass and counter the attack.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  15. Easy Motorcycle Chase

    After destroying the Shagohod and starting the motorcycle chase, equip the Cold War Camo. It prevents enemies from shooting at you as long as you're facing them. Since you'll be looking back at them during the entire chase, it's possible to complete this area without attacking or taking damage. Not only will your pursuers be unable to shoot, but they'll eventually give up or crash on their own.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  16. Cure Food Poisoning Without Medicine

    If Snake is suffering from food poisoning, you can cure it without using your medical supplies. Go into the Cure menu and enter the model viewer mode. Spin Snake's model around several times, and exit the menu. Snake will vomit, which will cure his illness at the cost of some of his stamina. This trick also works with EVA when she's in your party.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  17. Flameproof Cardboard Box

    Despite its appearance, the Cardboard Box is actually flameproof. This is best demonstrated during the fight against The Fury. If Snake catches on fire, simply equip the box to extinguish the flames. As long as you have it equipped, any fire that is on the ground will not cause damage. This is immensely useful for navigating the hallways during the fight. However, the Cardboard Box can't stand up to a direct, close-ranged hit from The Fury's flamethrower; the force of the blast will knock the box off of Snake.

    Contributed by: discoinferno84 

  18. Secondhand Smoking The Boss

    The most effective weapon to use against The Boss is the Cigarette Gas Gun. It can be used in tandem with Snake's CQC, and unlike with other guns, The Boss can't disarm you if it's equipped. It has a longer range than Snake's punches, can damage The Boss while she's on the ground, and can even interrupt her shooting and walking animations. This can be used to exploit the AI during the fight; The Boss is programmed to only fire her gun from a distance. If you get as close to The Boss as possible - to the point that the characters' models are touching each other - she won't shoot. This leaves her wide open for an attack for several seconds. You have the option of blowing the gas while she's still standing, or using it as a follow-up attack after you've knocked her down via Snake's CQC countermoves. All you have to do is get close, switch to first person view to aim and blow the gas, switch back to third person view to maintain walking speed and proximity, wait for her to recover, and start the process again. She will occasionally try to use CQC, but will walk backward and try to run away far more often. If timed well, you can trap her in a loop of walking and getting hit with the gas. As long as you can counter The Boss's CQC with your own, you can kill her with the Cigarette Gas Gun in only a couple of minutes.

  25. EZ Gun On Any Difficulty

    Throughout the game, there are many plants and fauna to collect. If you are able to successfully capture one of each type in the game ( 48 in total), you will unlock the EZ gun. The EZ gun is normally only available on easy mode. It gives you a minimum camo of 80%, has unlimited ammo and is a silenced tranquilizer that will restore your stamina as long as it is equipped. Note that you only have to obtain one of each type of plant/animal, and not actually eat them. The EZ gun does count as a special item so will disqualify you from obtaining some of the higher ranks in the game.

    Before reaching Groznyj Grad, be sure to capture a Tsuchinoko alive. Keep it in a cage and do not eat it.
