METAL GEAR SOlID 3: Snake Eater Boss Guide Index: I.) Intro II.) Characters III.) Boss guide (+how to kick their butt Snake Eater style!) IV.) Cures V.) Secrets and tips I.) I created this guide so others wouldn't have a hard time on facing bosses in this game. It's my first time making a guide but I'll try not to dissapoint. If I do, at least I tried. Anyway, I will explain what I know and shed some light on the bosses of Snake Eater. II.) 1.) Naked Snake: The main character, and also who you play as (duh). He is part of the FOX unit and is a highly skilled soldier. He was an apprentice of The Boss and was trained in CQC (Close-Quarters-Combat). He has also been taught to survive in harsh environments like the mission he is sent on (Virtuous Mission, Operation Snake Eater). He is sent to rescue Sokolov, a weapons scientist. Snake's real name is Jack. 2.) Major Tom/ Major Zero: Naked Snake's commanding officer and head of the FOX unit. He keeps in contact with him via his CALL #- 140.85 3.) Para-Medic: Naked Snake's advisor on health related issues and some of no similarity. She tells him about what foods he can eat, how to cure himself, and talks to him so he isn't lonely. She keeps in contact with him via her CALL #- 140.73 Her CALL # on saves is- 140.96 4.)Mr. Siginit: Refers to himself as THE specialist in weapons and explains weapons to Naked Snake; his and the enemies that hunt him. Mr. Siginit talks about the strengths and weaknesses of all weapons that surround Naked Snake. He keeps in contact with Naked Snake via his CALL #- 140. 5.) EVA: A beautiful spy sent by Kruschev from the KGB as she claims. She supposedly is one of the two NSA codebreakers who defected to the Soviet Union in 1960. She was sent to give Naked Snake information but also found a liking to him as soon as they met. Her love for Naked Snake saves his life many times. She keeps in contact with Naked Snake via her CALL #- 141.52 6.) Sokolov: A weapons scientist involved in the creation of the Shagohod, a large tank capable of firing IRBM's (nukes) from any terrain. Naked Snake must get Sokolov out of enemy territory. 7.) Granin: A weapons scientist who's ideas were trashed when Sokolov created the Shagohod. He despises Sokolov for many reasons yet helps Naked Snake reach him to rescue him. 8.) The Boss: Naked Snake's master and teacher, she taught him CQC and many other techniques and lessons. She is the leader of the Cobra Unit. She defects to the Soviet Union along with her unit. She now faces Naked Snake.....as an enemy. 9.) Colonel Volgin: Leader of the Breschnev Faction and owner of the Philosopher's Legacy. He commands GRU and The Boss, and also her Cobra Unit. 10.) Ocelot: Leader of the Ocelot Unit, a byproduct of GRU. He faces Naked Snake many times, and learns he is only fit for a revolver from him. Naked Snake manages to defeat him every time. Cobra Unit 1.) The Pain: He has the ability to command hornets. That's all anyone knows. 2.) The Fear: He is very flexible and can blend in with his surroundings. That's all anyone knows. 3.) The End: An extremely old sniper. That's all anyone knows. 4.) The Fury: He is equiped with a flamethrower and jetpack. That's all anyone knows. 5.) The Sorrow: Can talk to the dead. That's all anyone knows. III.) BOSS GUIDE 1.) Ocelot: 1.) Revolver shots, 2 guns 2.) Revolver shot, 1 gun 3.) Ricochet bullets 4.) Ocelot Unit fire support 5.) Showdown (found in part IV of this.) OK, as you have read, Ocelot has four primary attacks. These are in the order of pain. If you hear, "I'm sorry major" or something like someone ordering open fire, start rolling and finding cover. When it's over, Ocelot will scold his unit and continue the battle. If you see bullets missing on purpose, they're gonna ricochet and hit you. SO FIND SOME COVER! One gun fired at you is bad, so take cover and wait for him to run out of ammo. Two guns is worse, because that is twice the health going down and more wounds to cure. Take cover and pump some lead into him when he runs out of ammo. Weapon: Ocelot's weapons are two Single Action Army revolvers. Now for some math. If they're 6 bullets in a revolver, how many are in 2? 12. If you couldn't figure it out, it's ok. Because it shows you the bullets he has in both guns on the upper left-hand side of the screen. When all the bullet icons turn black, he has no ammo, SHOOT HIM WHILE HE RELOADS! It might show a cutscene while he reloads. Skip it and shoot him before he shoots you. Weapon of choice: I suggest using the .45 you got from EVA or the AK-47 if you aquired it. Take the suppressor off the .45, so you don't waste it. Besides, it's a boss battle, they're gonna know where you are in some cases. The Pain: 1.) Bullet Bees 4.) Hornet attack 2.) Grenade 3.) Tommy Gun Ok, so you've seen his attacks. (There is another but it only immobilizes you. I'll tell you what to do in order for this.) He'll throw a green substance at you. It's probably chlorophyll, but the hornets like it and if it's on you they'll go after you. You can either change your camouflage and it comes off. Or you can dive into the water. I suggest diving into the water. When they're called back, get back on a rock. If The Pain says, "Tommy Gun!" Dive into the water and get some cover! When he's done, get back up and get a shot in. Sorry if I didn't mention that before but I got caught in the moment. If he says, "Grenade!" The bees bring a grenade over to you. Don't stand on a rock because you know what will happen (KABOOM!). Also as I said before, dive into the water. One more thing, keep moving! The bees may try to drop it into the water to get you. After you get his health down halfway, you'll see a cutscene. He removes his mask to reveal hundreds of swollen bee stings and launches three "Bullet Bees" from his mouth (He has bees inside of him too.....SICK DUDE!). Now, it's crunch time. If he says, "Go my Bullet Bees!" Go underwater until they return to the bunch of em'. As their name implies: bullet. They are bullets. If you know how to cure bullets, they're not a problem. The real problem is that they're more painful than a bullet. Now for the attack that immobilizes you: They smother you from head to toe so The Pain can shoot you. Use the left analog stick to shake free. If you got easy shots in before, it may be harder this time. He'll walk around while the bees become a screen for gunfire. If he knows he is in danger he will use them as cover from head to toe. Throw a grenade at him. They'll scatter and he will be damaged by the impact. At one point, The bees will make an exact head to toe replica along with the real Pain. Throw a grenade in between to find the real one or just pick one to hurt, or kill. If you defeat him, you'll see somrthing happen and it happens to the other Cobra members except The Boss and The Sorrow. Weapons of choice: If you found a shotgun, use this. A grenade is imperative for destroying The Pain's cover. Also, if you have an AK, this will help. If you have neither guns, use your .45 handgun. Items of choice: To get bees off you in some cases, use a cigar. Take to heart that it lowers your health. I also heard smoke grenades shake bees off you. This works against The Pain's full body cover. The Fear: 1.) Crossbow 2.) Sneak attack In the cutscene, you were shot in the leg by a crossbow. The Fear says the arrow shot into Naked Snake's leg is covered in poison from the Brazilian Wandering Spider. He says how you will die in a cruel way I might add. As soon as he climbs the tree and vanishes, the battle begins. Quick! Go into the survival viewer and select cure to rid yourself of the poison and arrow. If you want to know the cures for different attacks, press Control-F on your keyboard and type in "CURES" just like that and press "Find Next". This boss was so simple, I beat him in less than 2 minutes. Read what I have to say and you should be set. If you have played the Metal Gear Solid series before, you have heard of: "Stealth Camouflage". It blends you in so well, you are technically, "One with your surroundings". No need to panic though because there are 2 flaws. One is when you move if you watch your enemy and his stealth camo, it looks a tad different from the area. If you're having trouble with that he makes noises when he jumps from branch to branch and if you see a branch rustle, fire away! If those are too hard to comprehend, use thermal googles. I found mine at the warehouse before this area. Wear the goggles, and he sticks out like a sore thumb! When he is right above you, pump some lead into the freak! Sometimes, The Fear will shoot multiple arrows which are the same as the first one. Run around in a circle until he is done. Also, if he has the advantage, he may run quickly like a spider and punch you and return to the treetops. Run, shoot, or use CQC to counter and to show him why you're called Snake. Weapons of choice: I suggest the shotgun when he is up close. Or the sniper rifle when he is far away. Your handgun is also good too. Items of choice: Thermal goggles are a must if you can't locate The Fear. Sonar and the motion detector are good if you know how to use them. The End: 1.) Mosin Nagant 2.) Flash grenades I love this battle more than the others because this is a battle of wits, camouflage, and stamina. I also love it because this battle is spread over 3 areas. This boss is hard to find because he is one with his surroundings. Also like The Fear but without the technology. This elderly badass is the real deal. He is always on the move and gets the drop on you many times. His disadvantage is that he always has a vantage point that you can reach. He fires tranquilizer bullets unlike his comrades who use full force. They rapidly lower your stamina and then your life gauge and if they knock you out, you failed. If you read the earlier part, you'll know where to go for cures to attacks. This boss may take a long while to defeat but I'll try to explain it in a few words. When he says, "I've found you" or something similar, he'll fire and hit you; cure yourself and find out where he is. If you locate him, shoot him! He'll run off and the hunt will go on until one is the victor. (He'll only use the flash grenades when he needs to escape.) Weapon of choice: Use the sniper rifle to pick him off from far areas. Any other guns will do from up close. Item of choice: Thermal goggles can find his footprints if you can't see them (don't confuse your's with his). The Fury: 1.) Flamethrower This boss has a flamethrower and a jetpack. He walks up and down the tunnels you are in looking for you. If he sees you he'll fire a burst of falme headed your way which burns you and sets you on fire. Dodge-roll to put it out and flee to a tunnel which is safer then cure yourself of your burns. After damaging him more and more, he starts running faster and looking for you with more fury. If he gets really pissed, he'll activate his jetpack and spread flames up and down the tunnels. Wait for him to run down a tunnel then come from behind and fire bullets from a safe distance. If you want to kill him quick, wait for him to pass by a bunch of oil barrels to bring his health down faster. Show this boss the true fury, of Snake. Weapon of choice: Use the shotgun or handgun up close. Use the sniper rifle from afar. The oil barrels are also effective (very effective I might add). Item of choice: The sonar and motion detector are good in case you can't find him and want to sneak up on him. The Sorrow: 1.) Blast attack 2.) Spirits of the dead This boss has no life guage or stamina guage. He has been sent to show Snake the sorrow which he has created. The only thing you can do, is walk straight ahead and see the death and sorrow you have created. You can't swim underwater to reach the end of this nightmare, so you'll just have to foot it. If you killed many people (soildiers, scientists, etc.), you're screwed. The Sorrow sends all the spirits of the dead YOU killed to hurt you spritually(Life guage goes down). He also fires this blueish beam at you which knocks you back and shows you a horrifying picture of The Sorrow along with a loud scream. As you walk, you hear screams and see guys that you slit their throat. Along with the others you killed. They say things like, "My head is gonna fall off!" and "My neck...is tearing apart!". They all walk like zombies so you can easily get around them. To dodge the other attack, simply walk in a straight line to the opposite side you're on.Walk to the end of this nightmare until The Sorrow is hovering over a body. Walk straight into it. It may say you died, but it's like the fake-death-pill. Quickly! Press L2 and activate the Revival Pill! Volgin: 1.) Hand-to-hand combat 2.) Bullet blast 3.) Electric bullets 4.) Electric shock attacks There is a time limit on this battle, so you need to beat him quickly. Volgin fires shock attacks at you first. WARNING! If you're holding a gun and get hit by the shocks, the magazine will explode and send you flying with less bullets than you had before. Tap R2 to put away your gun so this doesn't happen. Volgin has a shield which protects him from any attack. Attack him from his blind-side. To do this wait for him to become tired or do what i do. Take him on in hand-to-hand combat. When he does his combo, run around to the back and fire off as many rounds as you can. When his health is down, you'll see a cutscene. Volgin orders Ocelot to fire on Snake. He refuses and shows Snake that Volgin is nothing but a wimp aside from the massive muscles and freaky powers. Round 2 baby! The clock is still ticking and you need to defeat Volgin. Use the tactics from before but now watch out for stronger attacks than before. Volgin will look like he is shooting a machine gun but is actually using his powers to fire bullets. Dodge this attack as much as you can. If Volgin brings a swarm of bullets around him, lie on the ground until the bullets are fired. If you get caught in a combo like I mentioned, you may vomit. Be ready to eat something then. Sometimes, Volgin may tamper with the panel he used to lower the floor. His back his turned during this. SHOOT HIM! Use these tactics and show Volgin who the real man is. Weapon of choice: Time and time again this weapon can save you from a tight spot; the shotgun. You know when to fire this. Shagohod: 1.) Missles 2.) Heavy machine gun 3.) Small machine guns This is a giant tank which you must destroy. Once in a while it fires missles which home in on you and EVA. Equip your machine gun and blow them to smitherines. Volgin, who is driving the Shagohod, also fires one extremely powerful machine gun and tries to strafe you. Fire a rocket from your RPG-7 directly into the gun to stop it. If the small guns are fired, do the same to them. The back of the Shagohod is damaged, so you need to hit that part and no other. To do this, fire a rocket into one of the treads (those smirly things on the tank instead of wheels). The shagohod should stop and EVA will circle around on her bike so you can get a shot in. Repeat this method until you destroy it. Weapon of choice: RPG-7 (you need this) Shagohod 2: #1,2, and 3 from last time 4.) You can be run over Now your on foot and Volgin is using his power of electricity to control the Shagohod. He is satnding right on top of it. Your target is not the Shagohod, it's Volgin. You can use the tactic mentioned from before for #1 to aid your defeat in Volgin and the Shagohod. To get Volgin distracted instead of waiting for an opening from behind, fire a rocket into the treads. He will turn around for a few seconds. Any gun but the shotgun will work (it figures) because we're dealing with a tank you do not want to get close to. I suggest aiming for his head with the sniper rifle. After a few times he'll be dead. Or you can use all the giant machine gun nests set up around the area. These guns are so powerful, they can penetrate Volgin's shield from the front. Remember to get off and run because he will try to run you over. If this happens, dodge-roll. If this happens during attacks 2 and 3 from last time, keep dodging! Defeat him to see his fitting demise. Weapons of choice: Sniper rifle, any machine gun you have, machine gun nests, RPG-7 (good for a distraction and attack) The Boss: 1.) Patriot machine-gun pistol 2.) CQC You waited for this didn't you? If you win, you inherit the title of Boss (MG and MGS fans, we now know who Naked Snake really is now). Ok! This is it! The final battle! Now, if you weren't listening to The Boss before. There is a time limit. 10 minutes to be precise. You'll need three things you have used in this game. Camouflage, CQC, and a good weapon. You may think you can dodge her attacks like the others, but you can't. Her Patriot pistol is so powerful it deflects all your bullets like a shield. It also can rip you to shreds in a head on attack. If she doesn't use use her pistol against an attack like that, she may use CQC on you. If she comes running at you, just before she hits you, press circle to counter the attack. If you were knocked down and she comes at you, she will do a flip and body-slam you. If you can't block her CQC attack, she may take your gun away and throw it along with it's ammo boxes if you have it equipped. If not, she'll slam you hard and break some bones. Now, to get the drop on her, go into the Survival Viewer and go into the Camouflage Index. Select the outfit and face-paint which blends you in best. You don't have to be close, just close enough to get a shot in or CQC if you're daring. I suggest the shotgun because it knocks her down and gives you time to get away before she shoots at you. Follow that method multiple times to beat The Boss. If you're getting shot at, find cover behind a tree and wait for her to run. Take your AK-47, press R1 then L1 for closer aim then get a (I mean one) shot in then find cover. This method is reccomeneded in case you're seen and fired upon. If you beat her, your new codename is . (you'll find out when you beat the game) Weapon of choice: Shotgun and AK-47. There you go everybody! Have fun! Scroll down for tips and secrets on all bosses as well as cures. IV.) "CURES" 1.) Gunshot wound: (bullet bee wound is the same as well as crossbow bolt wound) a.) Survival knife b.) Styptic c.) Disinfectant d.) Bandage 2.) Poison: a.) Serum 3.) Tranquilizer: a.) Survival knife 4.) Burn: a.) Ointment b.) Bandage 5.) Broken bone: a.) Splint b.) Bandage V.) Secrets and tips: 1.) Sometimes, a lethal weapon may not bring rewards: When you face some bosses, you don't need to use brute force to defeat them. If you use weapons which knock someone out like a Tranquilizer gun, it's a different story. Here is what you can get for defeating bosses without brute force. a.) The Pain: His camo outfit b.) The End: Mosin Nagant sniper rifle c.) The Sorrow: His camo outfit (just need to beat the game) d.) The Boss: Her camo outfit 2.) See The Sorrow? In some parts during a movie, you can press R1 to see through Snake's eyes. In some parts, you'll see The Sorrow by The Boss. You'll find out why later. Anyway, he helps you by giving the time for the C3 bombs before the Volgin boss battle. He also gives you the frequency to call to exit your cell when you're captured. It's 144.75. 3.) Camo can work on bosses: The End: Any forest-type camo Volgin: Raikov outfit and mask (gets him distracted) The Boss: Snow camo 4.) Tips: a.) Use your surroundings to your advantage. b.) Use the best weapons in your arsenal. c.) Dodge from some attacks, duck from others, then find cover! d.) Do what it takes to defeat your enemy. e.) When an enemy can't be attacked head-on, look for a side or back opening. f.) CQC can work on some bosses, not all. g.) Camo can save you in some cases. h.) Save before boss battles i.) Bosses have stamina, make them lose it and get them off guard when they're hungry. k.) What would Snake do?
