   / 1.0  What The FAQ Is About \
--                                ---------------------------------------------

This FAQ is a collaborative effort between users 
kliefox and riddlebox98

It is intended to provide the reader with a comprehensive list of the available
PassCodes.

Unfortunately, due to the discovery on June 18,2010 that PassCodes supply 
players with a completely random result.

This means that if I use one code and get a T-shirt along with a female 
recruit, another player might use that same code, buy instead they may only 
get a male recruit.

This randomization also makes it impossible to accurately describe what each 
code will provide the player, with the exception of the following 
generalities:

1.) All codes that function properly will supply a single recruit.  These 
    recruits have randomly generated names, portraits, genders, and stats.

2.) Codes that result in the player obtaining a T-Shirt will also provide a
    randomized recruit.  Again, all codes that work supply one recruit.

3.) Having a high amount of Heroism Points (reported to be 100,000+) can
    increase the chance that a recruit will come with A- or S-Rank stats. 
    Unfortunately, this increase in chance is not a guarantee, and sometimes
    a recruit with really low stats may be obtained. 

4.) Some codes display as "incorrect" when entered.  I included the ones that
    did so for me at the bottom of the list of PassCodes.  They may or may not
    function differently for other players.

The codes included in this FAQ have been tested using the North American
Localization of the game.
 


     -------------------------------------
   / 2.0  How To Make Use Of The PassCodes \
--                                           ----------------------------------

This section is a step-by-step walkthru of how to make use of the PassCodes
listed in this FAQ.  If you're familiar with using WiFi connections with your
PSP, and have already created a PSN ID, please skip this section.

If not, please read on.

First you need to find a WiFi network to connect to.  This can be done either
in your own home, or by visiting coffee shops and/or fastfood restaurants that
offer free WiFi.  Might be slow in the latter case, but at least it will work 
for what you'll need in the next steps.
  
A word of warning:  A secure wireless connection in your own home is always 
preferable to an unsecured one offered or provided by someone else, so please
be aware of the inherent risks when setting up personal account information 
through an unsecured wireless network. 

Turn on your PSP.  If you have a UMD loaded, and the PSP's default "play-
game/movie-at-startup" is ON, you'll need to exit the game/movie to get to
the XMB screen of your PSP.

Make sure your PSP's WLAN switch is clicked into the "ON" position.

Next, you'll need to establish a PSN account.  This process only takes a
few minutes, is free, and is fairly self explanitory.  

Access the Playstation Network icon from the XMB, and then just follow the
steps/prompts, and log in to your PSN account when you're done to confirm the
created account, then log out and return to the XMB. 

Next, start up your copy of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

If you haven't done so already, start a new game, play through the first
mission, save and quit back to the starting menu.  

If you already have a save file, press up/down on the D-Pad, until you
get to the "Extras" menu and select that.

Highlight and Select the "Network" option.

Wait for the PSP to connect to the Wireless Network you established earlier. 

Use the Login and Password you set up for your PSN account

Agree to the MGS:PW terms of service by selecting "OK"

Use up/down on the D-Pad to highlight the "Enter PassCode" option, and
select it with the X button.

Press the X button again to select "OK" that you understand that your 
save file will be used for this feature.

On the next screen, select your save file that you will use for the PassCodes. 

And lastly, enter the PassCode(s) of your choice, one at a time.



     --------------------
   / 2.1  Important Notes \
--                          ---------------------------------------------------

PassCodes are only good for one use per unique PSN ID.  

Once you have collected the T-Shirts and/or recruits from each code, that's it.

Using Multiple Game-Save Files will not get around this One-Time-Use
limitation.

If you attempt to use a PassCode that you have already used, either 
intentionally or by accident, you'll get an error message advising that the 
code is "already in use."  This does NOT mean that someone else has already 
used up the PassCode.

If you make typos in the PassCodes three times in a row, your access to be 
able to input the PassCodes will be temporarily suspended for 24 hours.

Some of the codes may work for other players, but not for you.  This has been
determined to be normal, however, if a code does not work properly for you
(error message "Incorrect Code"), please move on to the next one in the list,
otherwise, you may get locked out like you would making typos three times in
a row.

If you do get locked out, don't worry, you should be able to resume your 
attempts to input more PassCodes after a full 24 hours have passed.

   / 3.0  T-Shirt and Recruit PassCodes  \
--                                         ------------------------------------

Each recruit comes with randomly generated name, portrait, gender, and stats.

If you have a high number of Heroism/Hero Points, (100,000+) your 
chances of getting recruits with A- and S-Rank stats increases.

Passcodes that supply a T-shirt for use as a uniform or camo within the game
will also come with a randomized recruit

   / 4.0  T-Shirt Descriptions  \
--                                ---------------------------------------------

A further detailing of the above section, describing the appearance of the 
shirts obtained from the above PassCodes for use as "camo" within the Peace
Walker game.

The list itself is organized by the order of appearance in the "Mission Prep" 
screen.

In Mother Base>R&D>Other>Uniform:
The game describes the T-Shirts as being "identical to Jungle Fatigues in
basic characteristics," however, it seems they are actually more closely
matched to the "Naked"-types of camo.

Certain T-shirt colors do blend in better with certain environments; the 
"Mission Prep" screen will detail a ranking of how well the T-shirts provide 
camo in various environment types.

Credit Where Credit is Due
A very big thank you to the following individuals:

To SteelWolf89 and KuSaNaG1 for contributing extensively to this thread:
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/960566-metal-gear-solid-peace-walker/55025685
thus providing the base list of the codes that were covered in this FAQ.

To riddlebox89, for instigating me with the suggestion to put this FAQ 
together, and also splitting the work-load with me about 50/50 so that we 
could compile the information, and provide the results of each code to those
that would read this FAQ.

To GlassGiant.com, for making a simple interface with which to turn images
into ASCII art, which is how I made the Peace Walker peace-symbol displayed at
the top of this FAQ.

To everyone who posted in this thread:
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/960566-metal-gear-solid-peace-walker/55185583
confirming that the stats of the recruits received from the PassCodes were 
random, and also confirming that having higher Heroism/Hero Points increased
the chances of getting a recruit with better stats. 

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=393846&page=2
for providing larger, high-quality photos of the UNIQLO T-Shirts.
This enabled me to provide more accurate details in the T-Shirt Desciptions 
section (4.0). 

To Twin_Master for confirming that the descriptions for shirts UT (N425G Gray)
and UT (N425G White) as being true, as well as pointing out that the boxes
themselves are a reference to Metal Gear Online.

My wife, for putting up with all the repetitive blips and bleeps 
without complaint while I was going through the process of uncovering what 
these codes unlocked.
