This run was recorded a few days after I recorded the pure speed run for MGS2. I heard somewhere of the idea of an 100% Dog Tag run and thought I'd give it a go. This run is again a perfect run, with no alerts, no saves, no continues, no rations and finally no damage. The difficulty level is Extreme; European Extreme doesn't have Dog Tags.
The run at first seemed tricky as there are various guards who think they are far superior to you, until you scare them with the USP. This is why there is some backtracking in the video. The Olga fight was perfect the guard fight in the starboard was also perfect. The only problem I recall was Snake clumsily falling on top of the guards head in the aft deck; thankfully he regained consciousness rather quickly, and got a bullet for his troubles. I did this run a few days after I bought MGS3 so I recorded this run and did it first time, honestly. This is why some parts may look a bit amateurish. I was also lucky that Snake's constant sneezing didn't get him caught (Even though I gave him medicine). The hardest part of all was definitely the Holds. I still can't believe how I managed this. Having to backtrack a lot in the Holds was rather frustrating but I felt I had the perfect route. Hold 3 was also incredible I had to make sure that I got both guards tags but that they also remained frozen not an easy task. Overall I'm happy with the run. If I was to do this again which I could easily knock off 1 minute or so.
Hope you enjoy the run!
