Okay, if you find the sorrow's river annoying, just go into your backpack and equip the knock out handkerchief. press square a lot to wave it in front of your face a lot, and eventually it will knock snake out and he will fall face down in the river and drown, at which point you can use the revival pill to move on

To beat Volgin very easily make sure you go fast using your CQC and your tranquilizer gun make sure you're shooting at his head or he will go crazy on you beating you up electrified and then you will throw up. Caution if you throw up Volgin will kill you easily and if your stamina is lowered your strength is not strong enough to beat him make sure you have alot of food to energize your stamina. Hope this helps.
As demonstrated by Major Ocelot early in the game, the bullets on the Colt Single Action Army revolver are capable of ricocheting. Simply equip the SAA and fire at a non-volatile structure such as a rock formation, metal crate or wall and watch the bullet deflect off the surface. If mastered properly, this can be used to shoot enemies hiding behind structures or even around corners!
Sneak up to The End when he is hiding on top of a cliff and roll at him, rolling at him will cause him to fall off the cliff and is an easy way to kill The End and it's funny watching him fall.
when you are fighting The end, look around the left hand side. lf you see a standing-up log thing you should see a parrot. but i am not sure it was left but it's very close by.
You should pull out your tranq. gun and catch it. at the waterfall the parrot will get loose. it will be in a small tree. =====() <--- that is the waterfall area. the() part is the circle of water at the waterfall.
The loose parrot is _() at the right side of the bottom dash. one more thing, if you scare him away, he will come back to the tree. and it's not like the tscinoko- so you can eat it but I would not recomend it.
The best way I located The End and to know where he was hiding was with my Directional Mic that Snake is equipped with. You may think that does not come in use in the game, but it sure does. When you are hiding from being shot by The End use your Directional Mic and move your joystick slowly around the area you are in. Go in a 360 degree motion. When your Directional Mic detects a sound, you will either hear The End snoring or him just talking. That is the best technique I used. Also when you chase him he is a fast cookie. You might want to use your thermal goggles and your AP Sensor to see if he is close by.
When dressing up as Major Raikov, you can get away with hitting enemies etc and they won't touch you. PLUS, you can also trigger the alert alarm by pressing triangle near one of the red alarm stations, this will send two or more guards to your area, where you can beat them unconscious and take any items they may be holding.
This is a simple one. If your food has spoiled, save and exit the game. Then, go into the PS2 control settings and set your clock back a bit. Load your saved game and viola, your food's fresh again!
Of course I must point out in fairness that it may be easier to catch new plants and animals to eat... And that your food will cease to exist if you set the clock back too far...
During the cut-scene when Snake stuffs Major Raikov into the locker, on the door of the locker, there is a poster with a picture of Raiden and the text 'Metal Gear Solid 2' on it
Eat The End's parrot
In the cutscene that begins the battle against The End, his parrot flies away. Search the area using the Thermal Goggles and you will eventualy find a bird sitting in a tree or on a stump behind you. This is also a sign that The End is nearby. You can either kill the bird, which will trigger The End cursing your name and swearing revenge, or capture it. Either way the parrot still appears in the cutscene where The End dies. If you captured the bird, contact Para-Medic to have a conversation about the bird. It offers very little stamina but tastes good. If you killed or captured the bird, it also appears as a ghost during the battle against The Sorrow.
During the final battle with The Boss, equip the Thermal Goggles and search for 3 snakes in the field. These snakes are Snake Liquid, Snake Solid, and Snake Solidus. Anyone who has played 'Sons of Liberty' will notice that they are the names of the three 'Sons of Big Boss'. Each snake has a great taste and recovers a great amount of stamina.
During the battle with Major Ocelot, if you unequip your current weapon and stand out in the open for a few seconds, there were be a secret cutscene where Ocelot accepts Snake's challenge for a quick-draw duel. Ocelot will then stand and face off against Snake and the game will automatically switch to First Person View. Quickly equip your weapon again and when you're ready, aim your weapon and fire! (The object of a quick draw duel is to draw your weapon first and fire but not cheat by drawing too early.)
In the cave, bats attack you if you run. But if you use the active sonar and send out a 'ping', the bats will stop coming after you. That is because bats use sonar to see, they attack the strange noises snake is making and using the sonar tricks them into thinking you are just another bat.
Destroy a food storehouse and wait for the guards to start complaining about their hunger. Kill a poison animal (Such as a Poison Dart Frog) and equip it as a weapon. Throw it near a guard and he will eat it. In a few seconds he will collapse from the poison and die
Infinity Face Paint - You can earn the face paint by finding and capturing the Tsuchinoko snake twice in the game.
It can first be caught with a mouse trap in Graniny Gorki South.
Capture it after you fight The Fear.
When hes in the pit, use the cig guns, you will get hurt, but it is the fastest and easiest way, and even though its fun, dont kill ocelot on the ledge, just keep doing this and you will beat him easy, and when you are being chased by the tank, dont bother with the tank, just equip the scorpion and use it on the other enemies, this goes for all the times you have to fight guys on the motorcycle, and when you fight him after the bridge, get an AA gun, not a small machine gun, and just shoot at him, hell block some of the bullets but not all, and hell try to charge you but if you keep firing, you will stop the charge, and when you fight him after the bridge on the motorcycle, shoot the drive screw and then in a weak spot in the back.
Here are the reasons you are Big Boss in this game
1.At the end of MGS the Twin Snakes,Snake says his name is Dave.The person you are in this game is Jack.
2. Snake doesnt have an eyepatch
3. At the end of the game,the president gives Snake the title of Big Boss.
4.During the end timeline it shows in 1972 at the bottom the sons of the Boss are born.It couldn't be from the Boss because she was killed by snake in the 60's so it has to be Big Boss
Whenever The Boss runs at you,hold R2 and select none.This way she can't take your weapons.
When you're fighting The End, sneak up behind him with spirit or just move with the directional buttons and don't hold him up, right before you're near him roll at him and throw him of the cliff, it's easy, it will kill him quicker and you'll know where he's going to go next just by looking at him run away!
For all of those people who have defeated the end by lowering his stamina to zero in hope of getting his moss camouflage this is not the way to do it if you do it this way you will get his rifle the mosin nagant to get his camouflage you must sneak up on him and stick him (holding the gun at his head) until he gives in and shakes out the moss camo this camouflage slowly regenereates stamina in sunlight.
Heres some tips on how to beat The Fear. The Fear jumps from tree to tree in this battle. Take out your Thermal Goggles so it can be a reatively easy matter to track him down in firs person veiw as he jumps from tree to tree.
When he pauses and takes out his crossbow or talks to you - which honestly I think is stupid because I say if your gonna kill somone just do it- pull out a heavey duty machine gun and blast him to death. Use the thin red line on the Thermal Goggles to line up snakes aim.
There is way of getting the stealth Camo without shooting the frogs, but personally I think shooting the frogs is way easier than this method.......
To get the Camo compleate the game fufilliling all of these criteria.....
-Less than 25 saves
-......and all in under 5 hours
Told you shooting those pesky frogs was easier!
