Meryl in disguise as a Genome Soldier, after she takes the safety off of
Used by: Solid Snake,
Liquid Snake, Meryl Silverburgh, Johnny Sasaki, Genome Army
Possibly boycotted by Bill O'Reilly in 2002 due to it being designed and manufactured
by the French, the FA-MAS is the only available assault rifle
Solid Snake finds and uses
during the Shadow Moses incident. That is, unless he's a pussy and plays VERY EASY
mode in Integral. The last two bullets in each clip are tracer bullets, which are
simply there to look cool, honestly.
USE IN SHADOW MOSES
Please shoot FA-MAS responsibly.
The FA-MAS seems to be the standard-issue assault rifle for the Genome Army.
Solid Snake finds one in the armory and probably uses it to kill people he doesn't
get along with like Genome Soldier #3 and possibly Psycho Mantis. The Genome Soldiers
have a light attached to their FA-MAS rifles, suggesting that either Snake does
not have one, does not know how to turn his on or doesn't use it so he can stay
unseen (or just doesn't give a fuck altogether).
Liquid Snake, upon falling off of Metal Gear REX and not seriously fucking himself
up like anybody else would have, gets a hold of a FA-MAS and unsuccessfully attempts
to kill Solid Snake and possibly Meryl with it. Liquid in the end learns the hard
way to not shoot-an-assault-rifle-and-drive because he eventually causes the worst
automobile wreck in Shadow Moses history. Regardless of the lesson learnt, he again
unsuccessfully attempts to fatally fire his FA-MAS at Snake, only to conveniently
die of FOX-DIE before he pulls the trigger.
FA-MAS THROUGH THE YEARS
Shadow Moses Incident (2005)
Metal Gear Solid (1998)
Holding the WEAPON button allowed Snake to fire the FA-MAS continuously.
Holding the CRAWL button while holding the WEAPON button allowed Snake to
run and shoot, which helps obliterate everything in his path while running
up the Communication Towers. Shown above is Snake using it to.knock on a
wall. That's putting it to good use, Snake!
The Tanker Incident (2007) [DELETED]
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (2001)
Even though it was taken out of the game entirely, Solid Snake can be
seen with it during a couple of cutscenes depicting the Tanker incident.
So, did Snake really have a epic duel between himself and some Russians
in the Navy's food stock room?
The FA-MAS is in the game's original code and can be unlocked in the demo
by hacking it, hence how I was able to get the screen captures above. More
information about this mystery below.
It's likely that Liquid Snake adopted it for use in the Genome Army due
to it's usage in Operation Desert Storm, which he participated in.
With the Bandanna, Solid Snake can fire an endless stream of tracer bullets
by firing off all the regular bullets, and then equipping the bandanna when
the only rounds left in the clip are tracer bullets.
The weapon was originally planned to make an appearance in Metal Gear Solid
2: Sons of Liberty, but was taken out because military advisor Motosada Mori
found it to be unrealistic to find one on a Marines tanker, despite other unrealistic
weapons such as the rail run making appearances. Apparently, the idea of Solid
Snake using the FA-MAS is so unrealistic, that it does not even make an appearance
as an unlockable weapon or in Substance. However, it does make an appearance
in several flashback sequences depicting Solid Snake using the FA-MAS during
the Tanker Incident. Why these were not edited out is quite the mystery.
The Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty demo disc (widely available packaged
with some copies of Zone of the Enders) actually has the FA-MAS available within
the game's coding. Using the following North American GameShark codes, one can
use it during gameplay:
Must Be On:
FA-MAS with Infinite Ammo:
Metal Gear Solid (1998)
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (Demo) (2001)
Metal Gear Acid
Metal Gear Acid²
Cameo, Crossover, and Misc. appearances:

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (flashbacks)
