Control intermission sequences
Much like the Codec transmissions, you can also press L1 or R1 to zoom in during an intermission.
The harder you press, the more the zoom. You will hear a gunshot.
While holding the button, use the Right Analog-stick to move the view.
Also during certain parts of some intermissions are sections where it looks like you are viewing the scene through a camera or binoculars.
You can use the zoom feature with these as well, and the onscreen distance or zoom indicators will increase realistically the more you zoom in.
This also can be done at the beginning of the game, before pressing Start.

Control Codec sequences

Press the Left Analog-stick or Right Analog-stick to move the faces.
Press R3 or R4 to zoom in.

Quick skip Codec calls

Press X button to stop the talking, then hold Square until the Codec conversation is done. This is useful when advancing past long, boring intermissions, or intermissions that you have already viewed.


Sneak up behind an enemy soldier with a weapon equipt.
When close behind press R1 and then Square.
Snake/Raiden will the shout 'Freeze!' and the enemy will raise his hands.
Let go of R1 but keep holding square.
Hold L1 to run around to the front of the enemy and face him.
Hold R1 again and point the gun at his head.
The enemy will become scared, shake and his tag will fall out, then do what you like with him. If he gets tough, shoot him in the arm and he'll soon shut up.

Strengthen Yourself
Do 100 pull-ups while hanging from a ledge (press the R2 and L2 buttons to do a pull-up) and your grip strength meter will increase.

Camera Control in Cut-Scenes
During a cut-scene, you can press R1 to zoom in, and use the right analog stick to move the camera around.

Extreme Difficulty Mode
Beat the game once and the Extreme difficulty level will be unlocked.


Successfully complete the game. The title screen will turn blue.


Attract and destroy enemies without being near them
Attract enemies by stepping on things that make loud noises.
They will investigate the noise.
Note: Enemies have to be near your position to hear the noise.
You can also knock on walls to lure enemies.
Place C4 on the surface where the enemy will be coming from before he or she arrives. Hide, and when the enemy gets near the C4, blow it up.


When you see a guard next to a pipe (which may be hot) shoot where you want the steam to hit your enemy.
If the steam hits his leg, he will start to limp.
If the steam hits his arm, he will be unable to use his gun or weapon.
If the steam hits his radio he will be unable to call for back up.

Reduce chance of being seen

When guards and cameras are in your way, take your time and do not rush.
Taking your time and thinking of all the ways of bypassing them is the best way of getting past the guard or camera.

Prevent reinforcements

If you have been found, equip a small weapon and shoot their codec so no reinforcements can be called.

Enemies run away

If you have been spotted, also try taking out your biggest gun.
At times, your enemies may get scared and run.

Defeating enemies

When faced with a single enemy, quickly go for his/or her radio or arm.
