HOW TO GET YOUNG SNAKE CAMO INCLUDING SUIT
Not related to said question but it is a cool secret I discovered
While playing the game.

CAMOFLAUGE ITEMS YOU WILL NEED:

1.(head) young w/b. face camo. This can automatically be
Obtained upon starting act 3.

2.(chest) blue vest. This can only be obtained by completing
The game. Please note that there are two blue vests. One is navy
And the other is just blue. The one you want is the regular blue.
Not navy. Otherwise, it just looks crappy.

3. (Body) iron camo
Though there are many variations of iron camo, this certain color
Can only be obtained in act 4 or 5. (That means I don't know which act.) it's the one where you face screaming mantis. Anyway, start by going to the room where you encounter mantis. (This is on outer haven) if you are in the correct room, you will notice a big, blue transparent globe. You will also notice several rows of computers. There are about 5 or 6 rows. Go to the very last row of computers,
Put on the octocamo that changes color (auto) and lay down in the darkest spot in that row. If not desired color than try laying down in a different spot or row. Your camo will change into a grayish lavender color. Now pause the game, go to the camo menu and register camo pattern. Now put on the required items and stop looking like captain crunch!

Just go press the pause button, go to your items menu, scroll until you find the syringe and press X on the syringe. Press X again. Now exit out of the pause menu, hold L2 scroll until you have highlighted the syringe, and press X. Congratulations. You have just stuck a needle in your neck. (Used the syringe)

You're using the musket aren't you? -_- turns out that "Crappy 1,000,000 DP gun" (the musket) you're using... Well the reason why
It costs so much is because of the tornado. Yep. The gun caused that.
It's actually its main purpose. It's actually pretty useful for large groups of hostiles. So if you don't want bodies to go bye bye, I got a
Solution... DON'T USE IT!!!

The easiest way I found was to shoot the dolls she carries
With a (moisn-nagant?). But if you shoot them a certain amount
Of times, the dead haven troopers you killed will fly and
Protect the dolls. (Note): shoot the haven troopers protecting the
Dolls and quickly shoot the dolls. Otherwise another haven trooper
Will just protect the doll again. And also, use the syringe when she
Gets her puppet strings into you. Otherwise, your aiming starts to suck. Once she drops the both the dolls, use the mantis doll
To shoot little spirit orbs at her, then follow the on-screen instructions.
She should then turn into a regular chick. The rest
(Tranquilizer or lethal) is up to you. Oh, one more thing... Meryl will turn hostile two times. Just simply knock her out both times. And to use the syringe, first equip it in your item menu, hold L2 and press X.

Re: MGS4 Tips, Help, Tricks, Hints, Cheat Codes and Strategy

to defeat vamp equip the suringe. when his helf is down to nothing do a stand up. to do a stand up run towards him and keep a hold of R1 snake will grab the target. after grabing vamp press triangle. snake will inject the suringe into vamp and his sicq will lower and he will die XD

have the syringe in your items and hold L2 and select it,don't let go of L2 and press X to use it. now,still having the syringe equipped capture live person, not dead using CQC and press triangle. they will fall to the ground and screaming mantis will scream obviously.

Re: MGS4 Tips, Help, Tricks, Hints, Cheat Codes and Strategy

Your shoot her one of her dolls a couple of times and pick it up and use it on her but if you have the syringe use it so that your aim wont be unstable and mostly go for the red one. this might be useful hey Im just trying to help that's all.

Oh. You have to load the end of your old game and choose a difficulty from there, not just start a new one.

I've got exactly the same problem. I've met up with the Mk.II, but got nothing I unlocked at the end of the first time playing. I thought maybe it's because I'm doing a different difficulty level, or I made a new save file???
