Game Hints

Bird droppings

Complete the Tanker chapter with Snake. After that, get to the roof with Raiden. You will see a group of birds. Shoot one with the M9. The rest of the birds will fly around. If you see one go directly above your head, it should send some droppings on you. You have to be in first person view. The bird droppings will also come off the screen when you go back to third person view.

More grip

If you hang on a ledge and press L2 and R2 you will do a pull-up. If you do enough of these, your grip level will rise. The maximum is level 3.

Guy on toilet from MGS1

When you get to the Shell 1 Core and you're supposed to listen in on a conversation between Solidus and Ocelot, point the Directional Microphone over to the left near the stage and you should hear Johnny from MGS1 talk to himself. It has a hilarious ending.

Enhance Grip Level Easier

You can enhance your grip level by doing 100 pull-ups on a ledge, or you can do 10 drop-and-cathes. To do a drop-and-catch, find two ledges which are parrelel to each other. Hang off the higher ledge, and press X, then repeatedly press Triangle. You should grab on the lower ledge. If you do this 10 times, you get an enhanced grip level. There are 3 total grip levels. Two ideal places to do this are the Tanker's Engine Room, and the Plant's Strut D.
