Act 3: Third Sun
Mission Briefing: Again, the camera is there behind the computer Sunny is at.
There could also be another battery up the stairs.
Midtown S Sector
Well, a nice change of scenery. It all seems complicated, but just move forward
and you will trigger the appearance of a Resistance member. Go around the van
so he doesn't see you, then just watch your step, stay a good ways behind him,
and don't let him see you. He'll eventually hit a corner with a guard. You
could put the guard to sleep, or you could wait for the Res. guy to run back
a bit and take a higher up path, either way works. Just follow the guy, clear
bodies out of his way from afar and unseen.
*NOTE: If you look behind you at times, there is something peeking around the
corners to see you.*
The rest of this following part is based on my game, and I'll know later if
things are different.
Midtown Middle Sector
My guy just ran to another section of the S Sector, where he needed two guards
out of his way in the cemetery to move on.
Midtown NE Sector
Just hug the wall right to avoid the spotlight, then put out the two guards
down the road. He should go down an alley.
Midtown N Sector
Just wait for the Res. guy to emerge from the doorway, but now he's in a
PMC outfit. Some rations in the area he came from, then follow. You'll see two
real guards in the street. Sneak to the right down a short alley, then hug
the walls behind the cars on the right side to get behind these guards, then
take each one out (the right one first then the left one).
Keep following your guy, the Solid Eye helps, and the Res. guy goes up the
road and hops in with a convoy of real guards. There are three, four altogether
and they walk up the street. One splits off and goes right, so pop him soon
after. Then one splits left, so pop him, and the last one splits right down
the alley; up the steps where the last one goes is an iPod song to grab
Now keep following the Res. guy down a short alley. You'll hear about the
vehicle patrols, and one goes by at the other end, so just stay around the
corner. The guy will then cross the street and head north up a road, but the
patrol car will be coming from the north too. You can hide on the left side
of the street in a doorway, or anywhere else; maybe even toss on the barrel or
box. The vehicle only patrols the same route, so keep that in mind. The guy
will slip into an alley nearby to change clothes, and then just stay close to
trigger the end scene.
There is an L1 press where you can look both left and right to see some nifty
little pictures on the walls. When Snake is speaking to Otacon, there is an
L1 press of interest, and soon after there is a hidden one.
*NOTE: Perhaps unlock and set the P90 onto an item slot. It may pay off in, oh
about, 20 minutes after this long cutscene.*
*NOTE: If you want no kills, I guess just switch to the Mk2, you have no other
Well, you can try to help shoot, but there isn't much reason to. Your little
gun is about your only option, and it chews up ammo like noting. You can try
to shoot Gekko, but you like won't have much effect. Luckily, if you just keep
shooting, the van seems to take little if any damage.
*NOTE: You could try to tranq the Gekkos' legs with your Mk2.*
You mainly need to keep the Frogs off the of the van. Then you'll need to hit
turret guys at both ends of a street. Best get good shooting headshots if
you're using the Mk2, but it seems like one bullet of your submachine gun does
the trick. The van will take damage, but not so much as you will take.
You're not in the boss fight just yet. This fight is harder if you are going
for no kills, but possible, although you may need to throw a ration in there
or two. You need to target the smaller winged units with your Vz, as there are
no kills for it - I hope. You use your gun on the gliders and then use the Mk2
on the guys. If you have rations, congrats, you'll make it through this part
no matte what.
I'll let you know there is just one press for each of the following scenes.
BOSS: Raging Raven
Well, the first thing you need to do is go all the way up the stairs. Up here
you can do as little or as much shooting of the gliders as you wish, but it
makes little to no difference as far as I can tell. It's actually pretty easy
to use the Mosin-Nagant. Just find her, aim the rifle at her without even
looking down the scope, and then fire. You aim for the chest and fire, and so
long as you have the rations/regains to take the hits, you'll do fine.
If you want to avoid the hits, then you have to stay moving, or shoot down the
gliders, or watch when she aims the gun at you. When she fires you have like
a second to move or you'll get toasted. Sometimes her blast leaves fire, and
if you catch flame you should roll, duh!
I mean, compared the Octopus lady, this is an easy and quick fight. The only
hard part would be reloading and tracking her down, but even that shouldn't
be hard. When her psyche is low, you can find her on a rooftop and shoot her,
or just shoot her again, however.
*NOTE: The doll is at the very top, so just run up there and she'll meet you.*
*NOTE: If you have a shotgun and V Rings, use those to better effect. Just
hold your sight on her, let her move, and then fire.*
This fight is the same as the last. However, it seems like things actually
happen around you, like walls blasting. You need to watch where you back up,
as you may fall off. Just keep backing up, after you get the doll up top,
and just keep firing away even if you miss.
And there is just one press early in this, what may be the longest scene in
any video game ever. So while this was a short played act, it was by no means
short in total time.
