pad. This works on all three disc's title screens.

There is a new Very Easy difficulty available. The major difference is that
you start off with a weapon. This weapon is the MP 5 SD, an assault rifle similar
to the FA-MAS. To top it all off, you have unlimited ammunition for it.
If you can't beat the game in this mode, you really suck.
"Pissing Off The Asian"
Keep on calling Mei Ling and don't save. Eventually, she'll stop talking to
you. Keep it up, and she'll stick her tongue at you. You fucking asshole!

she runs to the women's bathroom. If you manage to get to the last bathroom stall
in under five seconds, Meryl will not have enough time to put on her pants! Oh
Stare at Meryl in first person mode. She gets quite nervous. I'd be, too.
Hurt Meryl. The game will not allow you to move for a minute, and she gives
you the most painful slap ever.
When Meryl starts acting weird, first person mode will show her first person
If you hurt Meryl and quickly hide in a cardboard box, the puppy wolf-dog
will pee on it. On a good note, equipping that box will make the wolves not hurt

item which you can use if you load the saved game. And yes, you can get both items
by completing the other ending the next time you play it.
GOOD ENDING - Escape the prison cell WITHOUT submitting to the tortures. Ocelot
will not kill Meryl and she will manage to live. At the end, Meryl will find and
give you the Bandanna, which gives you unlimited ammunition when equipped.
BAD ENDING - Escape the prison cell WITH submitting to the tortures. Ocelot
will kill Meryl. Otacon will escape with you instead, and will give you a Stealth

can still see you)

bullets, so you know where the hell you are shooting. And besides, they look cool!
"Hey Mr. Paparazzi, Come a Little Bit Closer..."
To get the Camera, get the Level 6 Security Card. Go back to where you blasted
