Foods (MGS3S)


The following is a list of all the various foods you can get in the Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence game to eat. Also included is what special uses some of them may have. All of the technical information about the animal will be found at the end of every description so it is easier to skip them if you do not wish to read them. Alot of these animals can be captured alive by using the tranquilizer gun (Mk22) and can sometimes even be used as weapons. In the "Food" Menu, you have 3 cages that are used to keep these animals alive. It will keep them fresh, and provide a better stamina recovery then a adead or rotted animal. To use some of these animals as weapons, go into the "Backpack" Menu and select weapons. Scroll all the way down to where the animals are, and you can select them just as any other weapon. They are most effective when they are alive. For example, you can scare enemies away by throwing a living Reticulated Python at them.

The Siberian Ink Cap can be found at the very beginning of the game. It gives you barely noticeable stamina recovery, it tastes disgusting. Naturally, it is a mushroom from the ink cap family. Its life cycle is transitory, meaning that as soon as the spores mature, the cap starts to turn black, liquefies, and melts away. In its immature state (before it melts away) it is valued as a source of food. Do not ever eat them whle drinking alcohol though. Ink Caps contain coprin, which inhibits the function of aldehyde dehydrogenase, which prevents the body from breaking down alcohol, causing a buildup of acetaldehyde, meaning it will give you one hell of a hangover.
