At the time of writing we have not aware of any cheat codes being available for this game - by this we mean, something like up, down, left at the main page for infinite lives.

There is a rumour that you can get infinite ammo though. Try this... Collect all dog tags and complete the game and then save it. You then need to start a new game and equip the wig. With this item equipped you should have infinite ammo.

Although we have not tested this one ourselves, we have put this in as a recommended cheat as we have been asked by many users why we have no cheats for this great game.

Don't forget we have loads of hints for this game, submi..

Don't rush through areas where there loads of cameras and guards.

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.

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.

Defeating enemies:

When faced with a single enemy, quickly go for his/o..

Dog Tag Know How

Dog tags are hidden on many of the soldiers. If an enemy has one, youll see a glowing spot on their chest where the tag would hang.

You'll need to surprise them at gunpoint (Hold Square when near them), then walk over (hold L1 while holding square) to stand in front of them. Point the gun at their face, and eventually they'll shake with fright and drop the tags.

Once you pick them up, you can view them from the title screen in the Special Menu. To obtain the tags from the 'persistent' soldiers, do the above, and then Shoot them in the hand or near their face. That will get them to co-operate.

Solidus (Extreme)

I Just Completed MGS2 On Extreme, And Beat Solidus Without Losing Any Health

All You Have To Do To Do This Is Simple

Kill Him Using Lethal("Red" Sharp Side Of The Blade) Methods As Each Attack Is Worth More Damage Than Non-Lethal("Blue" Back Side Of The Blade) Methods

At First, Solidus Won't Fire His Electro-Powered Missiles (He Will Only Do This When He Has Lost About 1/6th Of His Health) And When He Does, Flip-Attack Straight To Him (You Don't Need To Hit Him) And His Missiles Will Be Useless (And He Will Stop At 2 If You Get There Fast Enough) You Can Evade His Attacks By Using The Flip Attack (Running, X) And It's Also Useful When You're On Fire. It Can Also Be Used To Knock Solidus Off His Feet.

Hideo Kojimas Photo

On the Tanker mission, when you are in Hold 2, look at the projection screen on the right when it has the video projecting on it and take a photo with the Camera. When you do this the game directors face (Hideo Kojima) will appear on the screen.

Note: This will not work if you use the Digital Camera.

OK. do you know when you are jack and you are about to find ames? There is a chick in there (not the old ones) if you knock her out you can see her underware.

If you take a pic, with your dig. camera and save it, you can call up cornal and rose will chuw your ass out.

2 things

No.1)In the tanker episode, go all the way up deck port 2 and when you see the gaurd coming down your way run into the nearest passageway (big thingie)and put your back up against the smallest wall which you see first the gaurd should then come down when you can see him peek around the corner and a pipe should fall then when it has pop your head back round.Stay in your position and ......thats all im saying youll find out :P

No.2)When you enter Hold no.2 (on the tanker chapter)go over to your left then press Triangle near the front of the flappy thing then snake should lift it up then you can crawl through to Hold no.3 easily. Different things happen when you crawl through

For all the people who are wondering where the..

For all the people who are wondering where the dog tags are in the tanker chapter well here they are. First off as soon as you start in hold 1 make sure you have full health if not use a ration then climb down the first ladder. Once your next to the second ladder hang over the edge and keep on moving until you can climb up. The guard is on the very end basically the other end of hold 1. The reason you need full health is because the less health you have the quicker the grip bar goes down and belive me you need all the grip you have. If you have infinate grip which i have it will be easy. Hold 2. No guards up here so hang over and keep shimmying until your on the other side like in hold one. Dont worry there are no guards on the second floor of Hold 2. Now your in hold 3 the guard who has..

BITTER ROSE: While leading Emma across the oil..


While leading Emma across the oil fence(Strut L - Strut E),take some timeout to shoot some of the seagulls flying overhead.

After you've shot enough you'll get a codec call from the colnel asking if you enjoy killing defeseless animals.

When the call ends call rose(140.96).she'll be really spiteful to you and say



Choose the top one and Raiden will apologise and Rose will save your data

P.S: If you do save you have to start the oil fence bit again.

I was wondering how do you get to the bomb in shell i right at the start in the romm where there is lots of pipes.

I knno where it is i just can't get over to it. please help.

If you see a camera or Cypher that you can't get past, then instead of bothering using a Chaff Grenade that will only effect a limited amount of time, why not just break it all together. All you need to do is simply shoot it with a gun and it will be broken for the rest of the game.

Note: Cyphers do sometimes come back once you've left that area and when you shoot it makesure that it isn't your M9 as it won't work, any other gun will be fine.

Helpless gaurd This is really,..

Helpless gaurd

This is really, really funny. When you take a gaurd hostage(go behing and press and hold [])First shoot his radio, then in his right leg, then his right arm. Go in front of him and let go of your weapon without shooting(lightly release []) After a few seconds he will shout 'FREEZE' and point his gun at you. He wont be ablr to fire because you shot his arm. He will then try to call for back-up, but he wont be able to because you bust his radio. In a last resort he will limp off to find a gaurd and the caution mode will go off. Shoot him before this happens. This is really funny cheat, try it.

note:- i have only tried this on the tanker chapter.

Cant spot 2 dogtags.

Can someone help me. There supposed to be two dog tags in hold 1 of the tanker and two tags in hold 3.But i cant find more then 1 in each area.

Could someone give me the exact locations of the 4 tags.A few people add that you need thermal goggles for spotting tags,well you don't.

They shine as soon you stand before them and keep a gun to his head.Somethimes they do need some pain to change there minds so shoot at a wall or his hand or his leg.

Only use socom or usp,the m9 knocks them out where ever you shoot.

Hey gamers, when you are fighting Solidus he is quite easy.

He will stick his octopus thingies in you so move around and when you get close to him use the blade and jab it into him.

This will make it very easy to defeat him if you do this continuosly.

Then you will have to listen to an forever ending long story, so grab a drink and snack. AC

On Normal he has: Solid Snakes's

On Hard he has: Liquid Snake's

On Extreme He has: Hideo Kojima's

Ok, a few of the tips in this section tell you about holding up guards. But be careful - If you hold up a gaurd, then go around the front of him and then attempt to run, (Or go back behind him), you'll see his arms starting to lower slowly. He's reaching for his gun.

If this happens, quickly aim your gun at him again and shout 'Freeze!' and he'll put his hands back up.

And if you're out of ammo and you hold up an enemy, simply smack him about a few times untill he's dazed. If he gets up after the first few hits, just keep aiming your gun at him and he'll put his hands back up.

To get the Dog Tags from the gaurds who will just say "Just try to pull the trigger!/Go ahead and kill me / Whould you shoot a prisioner?

/If your going to shoot , then shoot" point the gun at their head or dick.

They will say one of the lines above , shoot the wall behind him or one of his body parts then he will say "Don't shoot!" then he will shake out his Dog Tag.

Beat the "Tanker Chapter" and collect 30 dog tags. Look into your items and you should find "Solid Snake's Bandana"

put it on and you will have infinite ammo. Note:If you get shot the bandana will dissapear and you will have to put it on again. You will also have to reload.

Have you wandered where the first dog-tag for ..

Have you wandered where the first dog-tag for the plant chapter is located? Well if you trank Snake in Arsenal Gear, after the cut sequence of the cypher spotting you, you will get a dog-tag. You have to shake him like you do Olga on the ship. On very easy, you get Iroqouise Plisken. On easy, you Meryl Silverberg. Thats as far as I got.Do this before you engage the enemy, then wake him with the coolant spray.

When on board ship, you'll come to a hallway where there are three sets of lasers. Take your scope, or use your camera if you don't have the scope, and look near the explosice charges that are set up in this hallway. Aim at the little dark green boxes, fire!!.. and the lasers go down one at a tine. You have to take out three green boxes to get all three lasers down!

In the demo that you get with Z.O.E. you have p..

In the demo that you get with Z.O.E. you have probably noticed some of the doors are locked for the demo but have no fear because you can get through them! How? EASY! ... This cheat will require some skill and patience. First of all put the difficulty level on hard (or very hard) and radar always off. Now you have to kill all, yes ALL, the guards on the outside decks first with your choking method. Once this is done head in the watertight door that leads to the lockers with the posters. Open the locker with the girl in a bikini and press up against it. Tap her pants part of the poster and guards should be alerted to the locker room.

Just as they are about to leave shoot them both on the head with your M9. Go up the next corridor and make the guard freeze. M..

Hold up:

When U hold up a soldier by pointing the hand gun to his head quietly move away from the guard and he will stay there thinking Ur still in his back pointing at him.

(U choose what to do with him) shoot his radio behind him because if U do it wrong he won't call the other soldiers.

Freeze!!! If you succeed to surprise an enem..


If you succeed to surprise an enemy soldier from a very close range and aim your gun up to his body he will drop his weapon, raise his hands when all his body is shaking with fear and will surrender! the next move is up to you...

Quicker Sleep:

As you know, there is a tranqulizer gun

that drop down the enemies unconscious

without killing them.

So, if you like the shot will take effect quicker, you may aim the gun right to the head,neck or the chest but if you will aim to the other body parts the effect will apear much longer (like 10 seconds or so)

This isnt really a helping tip but fun anyway,..

This isnt really a helping tip but fun anyway, there are 7 easter island statues situated in mgs2 i can only find 4 though:

1. on the rail of strut d in the middle bit.

2. under the south west table in the computer room

3. fire a nikita in the vent but smash some grills and eventually you will find it

4. on extreme in the locker room where emma is hiding in the cupboard on the wall

If you find more, send it in....!

Hold 2

In hold 2,stand next to the projector and press triangle.If you do this enough,a video of a japanese girl will come on.Keep pressing and two more will come on at the same time! trust me it works!

Amusing timewasters

These hints won't help much in completing the game but the are funny:

When you get called on the radio while the colonel or who-ever is talking to you press the L or R buttons seperatly to hear Raiden speak out of turn.

When on the shell plant go onto the roof of strut A and go into first person mode, look directly up and after a while the seagull's will start taking dumps on you.

The dreaded birdcrap strikes again, run into the white patches on the floor of the roof and Raiden will slip over.

Now for revenge on those pesky birds!!! when they land on the fencing you can either shoot them or if your fast enough you can punch them if you keep on doing this Rose will contact you and tell you to stop being cruel!!!

When in the bathrooms..
