Emblems

      • STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION ***

At the end of each playthrough you will be awarded a number of emblems depending on your actions. There are forty emblems in all and I will now run down what is required for each one as well and any rewards upon completion.


Contents

[edit] Emblems 1 - 8

Emblem's 1 to 5 are the top rankings in the game. They all come with rewards and are pretty hard to attain. Only the hardcore MGS player will ever get the higher ones. They are as follows:

[edit] Big Boss

The Big Boss Emblem
0 Alert Phases
0 Kills
0 Continues Used
0 Recovery items used (A recovery item is classed as anything in the Recovery section of the menu. The Syringe does not count when it is needed. The 2 exceptions for the syringe are when you use it against Vamp and when you use it on yourself and Meryl in the Screaming Mantis battle)
Special Items Prohibited
Under 5 Hours Gameplay
The Big Boss Extreme Difficulty Level

The Perfect playthrough is required for this hefty ranking and is only available to the most devoted and skilled MGS players.

[edit] Reward

- There are 3 rewards for reaching the Big Boss ranking.

The Patriot Assault Rifle is one. An already high capacity assault rifle with infinite ammo into the bargain. Occasionally 'Snake Eater' will start to play when it is aimed.
The Big Boss Face Camo is the one everybody wants. I won't spoil exactly what it is, but it's definitely a trophy. This will make the enemies cower.
The Big Boss theme for Snake's iPod is also unlocked when the prequistes for big Boss are met.

[edit] Fox Hound

The FoxHound Emblem
Less Than 3 Alert Phases
0 Kills
0 Continues Used

[edit] Reward

– Thor .45-70 weapon

The Thor is a high caliber hand rifle. It holds one bullet at a time, but is powerful enough to justify its small clip capacity.

[edit] Fox

[edit] Emblem's 9 - 31

The 'Middle Ground'. Emblems from number 6 to 35 are all emblems that are rewarded to soldiers of the battlefield. Some are not very prestigious, others, any soldier would kill to have striped across their chest.

The Reward for obtaining all 40 Emblems is the song Snake Eater from MGS 3 for the iPod
