MGS4 Metal Gear Solid 4 Hints & Tips
This is the second MGS4 Guns of the Patriots post. This post will go over boss strategies & hints for the game. Enjoy!
Boss Battle: Screaming Mantis
This video shows you how to beat the screaming mantis
Hint: No More Camo
Shake the Sixaxis controller to return Snake’s Octocamo t[download id="null"]o its neutral (black and blue) pigmentation.
Hint: Online Stealth Tips
When playing as Snake in the online sneaking mode, you should avoid lit areas so your shadow will not be as apparent. Also, in stages where characters emit frosty breath, have Snake play dead while prone to make Snake’s breath disappear.
Hint: 100K Drebin Bonus
When entering the password into Otacon’s terminal, input 14983. Although incorrect, Snake will (invisibly) gain 100K of Drebin points. Run through the game a few more times with this and the no kills and no alerts bonuses, and you should amass quite a sum of Drebin points.
Hint: Online Friendlessness
Trying to find a friend on Metal Gear Online but can’t? That’s because a player needs to log into their MGO account (and onto a server) before you to find them. Additionally, you “add” their MGO character name to your Friends List (for Metal Gear Online only), not any other Playstation Network game.
Throw your grenades under-handed by lightly holding the L1 button (or your aim button, if you changed your controls), instead of holding it down completely.
Hint: Big Boss Tips (Act 3)
For players who are frustrated by the hardiness of Extreme difficulty, here’re a few tips for Act 3:
Press Triangle during the bike chase to take cover behind Eva. She cannot die during the bike chase, but Snake sure can!
Boss Battle: Crying Wolf
This video shows the whole battle with Crying Wolf.
Hint: SOCOM Mk,23
Although you can enter a password to get the Heckler and Koch Mk.23 SOCOM pistol (handgun from the first Metal Gear Solid), you can easily pick one up from underneath the transport truck at Shadow Moses Island’s Helipad.
Boss Battle: Raging Raven
