"Warning" this trick only works if you have a games shark."
turn on the level 100 key card code and the card board box C code. Go through the first area as normal. Then when you come to the part where liquid takes off in the hind, get in to the truck to the front left of the area. Turn on the card board box C code then you will go to the snow field. Get out and ,equip the level 100 card then go through the door you go thru after beating wolf for the 2nd time and go down the stairs it will tell you to insert disk 2 and you've skipped passed the darpa chief, revolver ocelot phsyco mastis and dang near every one els in the game. I discovered this code myself, so I know it works.
"NOTE" DO NOT turn on the pal card game shark code or the trick will not work. The game will give you the pal card anyway , so you dont need the code"

When you are about to fight spycho mantis, in the office there should be two head mantles one on the left side of the room, & one on the right that have black tape around the face of them take out your socom & shoot the head mantles about three times each. when you start to fight him he will lose concentration cause he hates the look of his face. that way without waisting famas bullets you can kill him easily & effectivly

PS1 | Submitted by Brendan RoneySeeing through Physco Mantis's eye's
When Physco Mantis Takes over Meryl in the Commander's room, and then Meryl begins to shoot at you that's the time to do it simply press the triangle button and voila.
P.S this code is pretty risky so I advise you to save just before you enter the Commander's room.

After Wolf shoots you first time to make her appear, run to the far right near the door and hide behind the snow. Use the Nakita launcher to guide the missles to hit her!! You must search for her each time near the trees, but she will never get another shot off on you!
PS1 | Submitted by GamesRadarDefeating Vulcan
Another way to defeat Vulcan for the second time is to use your Claymore Mines. Place a mine where ever he is attempting to approach you. This works all the time. Submitted by Ed Maramag
PS1 | Submitted by GamesRadarCrushing the Generator
To destroy up the generator, you need a Nikita. Simply fire it and then get in first-person mode to make it easier to aim the missile. First turn right, and go through the door straight ahead, then left and you'll be in the room with the generator. Now just run into it. The cameras may shoot it down, so you'll probably have to try this more than once.
PS1 | Submitted by GamesRadarMeryl with No Pants!
Follow Meryl into the Women's bathroom and reach the last stall in under five seconds. Meryl will be caught with her pants down during an FMV sequence.
Look in the vent just before the DARPA chief (Decoy Octopus) to see Meryl doing sit-ups. Leave the vent and re-enter and she will be doing one-armed pushups. Repeat and she will be doing leg stretches on the wall. Repeat one more time and she will be doing the leg stretches while pantless.
PS1 | Submitted by GamesRadarFast Travel
To move about through the complex faster, hide inside a cargo truck and use a C.Box. Remain perfectly still and a guard will drive the box to the area noted on the box. (There are three boxes, each to a different location.)
PS1 | Submitted by GamesRadarDefeating the Ninja
Use your chaff grenades to get the Ninja on the ropes. They will stun him and give you enough time to get in 3 good hits.
PS1 | Submitted by firstname.lastname@example.orgDefeat Psycho Mantis
Before you attemt the fight with Psycho Mantis plug your controller into the controller #2 slot and press any button, the screen will turn black and have the word "HIDEO" in green in the corner. After a few seconds it will go away and you can use the 2nd player controller to fight against Mantis.
This way he won't be able to tell where your going to go because he can only read your left brain (left controller), he can't read your right brain (right cont.).
PS1 | Submitted by GamesRadarGet Camo Suit/Bandana
If you submit in the torture room, beat the game, and
save your progress, you automatically start a new game. When
that new game starts you get a stealth camouflage suit.
If you don't submit, and beat the game, and automatically start a new game, you get a bandana that gives you unlimited bullets when you have it open while using a weapon.
Also, in the Cell, before you climb up the ladder, down on the ground, there's a secret air vent with a ration, and underneath the DARPA Chief's (Decoy Octopus) bed is a ration. Also, when you get the stealth suit, after Meryl opens the cargo door in the tank hangar, if you have your STEALTH open, you can run right through the room without being detected by the infared sensors.
PS1 | Submitted by GamesRadarDifferent Costumes and More
If you want to wear the tuxedo, here's what you do. Beat the game two times on the same memory card block (play over your last game.) The third time you start up the game Snake will remove his thermal suit in the elevetor and be clothed in a tuxedo.
Beat the game with the tuxedo and the ninja that he has to fight changes his uniform into a red ninja suit!!!
Beat the game at any skill level and look in the Special menu for a compilation of all the cut scenes throughout the game.
PS1 | Submitted by GamesRadarBeat Rex With Ease!!!
O.K. so, forget the stinger missiles and running between his legs... This is the best way to defeat Metal Gear Rex, and why not have a break while he is still trying to find you...
Before he wakes up right at the beginning of the battle run to the far right... hide behind one of the walls sticking out and... get inside one of your cardboard boxes! Then when the blue cone is out of your way, quickly press R1 to get rid of it and shoot a stinger into his arm, before it hits him, get back into your cardboard box and he won't be able to find you! This way, you won't get hit once!
Please pass on your comments of this tip to email@example.com
PS1 | Submitted by mike diazBeating Rex
So in order to beat Rex you will have to use Chaff grenades so that he
looses track of you for a while and will give you some time to kill
him. Tke out your stinger missles and aim for the round thing on his
left arm that looks like a shield and give him a few shots. After a
while that ninja comes and he finnishes off Rex's arm but Liquid Snake
squishes him into the wall and steps on him. This time your chaff
won't work any more. The cockpit will open and now run through his
legs (avoid the laser) and wait till he turnes around. Get your
stinger ready and keep on firing at the cockpit until you finnish rex
(when you were at the Ocelot torture rack where he runs electricity
through you, did you submit or save Meryl?) well, hope my tip hellped.
another way to beat rex
run behind him and watch out for the laser then move with him and stay behind him when he stops moving throw a stun grenade beetween his legs then imediatly select the stinger lock onto the radar or the cockpit which ever your on and fire. i found this effective becausei had more stun grenades and it also makes him freeze in his tracks.
PS1 | Submitted by teendinoA member of the wolf dogs
Just after tracking through the caves for the first time, and before you and
Meryl enter the under ground passage to comm tower A. Stand facing Meryl with the wolf dogs yapping nearby slap meryl roundly in the face Meryl whistles and the dogs attack you for such an action. However if you place a cardboard box over you immediately after slapping Meryl,the wolf dog puppy investigates the box. Cocking its leg against the side of it, a stream of wolf dog urine splashes you and the box. You now smell of the wolf dogs and the hounds now leave you alone on subsequent terms through the lair.
PS1 | Submitted by Bart (firstname.lastname@example.org)Get out of prison
There are three ways to get out of jail after the tortures :
1. After the second torture call Otacon and he will give you some ketchup and other stuff. Use the ketchup and the guard will come in thinking you are dead.
Then you can kill the guard.
2. Crawl under the bed and the guard will come in. Crawl under the bed when the guard doesn't see you, otherwise he'll laugh at you.
3. Just wait after the second torture and don't do anything. The ninja will come and rescue you.
PS1 | Submitted by Andy (email@example.com)Stupid Guard
To do this you will need stealth. While you are in the heliport get one of the guards to follow your footprints in the snow and then run around in circles until the guard catches up with you. Get out of the way and he will say "Huh" and start walking around and around and around in circles while looking at his feet!!!!!!!
PS1 | Submitted by Metal Gear (firstname.lastname@example.org)No mine detector, no problem!
When you are in a place that has mines, just crawl and they won't explode! Bonus!: When you crawl, you can keep the mines you go over!
PS1 | Submitted by DangerGirl (email@example.com)Watch Meryl do her workout!
When crawling along the duct above the holding cells, you may look down to see Meryl in her cell exercising. Leave the duct immediatel by going down the ladder, now re-enter the area again. Each time you repeat the step above, Meryl will be doing new moves, a few are posted below:
1) Sit ups
2) One are push up
4) Situps in her underwear
5) One arm push ups in underwear
PS1 | Submitted by BrianSecret Place from the Steam Room
When you get to the steam room there is a hallway to your left. follow it get down on your(Solid's) hands and knees and go under the wall. Keep going to the left until you pass the 2nd wall then there will be a room. DON'T go to close to the edge or else you will fall in to the steaming hot lava! There are two boxes of chaff gernades and one box of stinger missiles. And if you want to have little bit of fun, you stand there and you could shoot a stinger missile at a rat or an unexpecting guard, this will set off the alarm but don't worry no guards can hurt you in there(avoid shooting the big thing in the middle of room it will take some life off of you).
PS1 | Submitted by BeeF (firstname.lastname@example.org)Unlimited Rations
In Metal Gear Solid, when you see a ration grab it. Then go to a point in the game were it goes black to load a new sequence. Then bactrack and the ration will be back again. This is very effective against bosses.
PS1 | Submitted by AnonymousFast way to beat Liquid
When you are battling Liquid on top of Rex, there is a trick to beating him fast and easy. Each time Snake punches Liquid twice, pause for a moment then puch Liquid again twice. Keep repeating this until Liquid's life is zero. By this time he should be cornered so kick him after the punches now. Remember that he takes a little time to recover from your punches when you hit him twice in a row. If you only use punches, he will never get a chance to hit you.

When you have to find the Darpa chief, you crawl through a vent shaft and on the way you can look down through a vent cover and see a woman. if you go out of the vent and come back in three times looking in at her each time on the third or fourth time you will see her with no pants on.
