[edit] Plot

Metal Gear Soild: Portable Ops is set in the San Hieronymo Peninsula in Columbia, six years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. And unlike the previous Ac!d games on PSP, it is part of the same story.

Naked Snake's former group, FOX, have split from the CIA and have turned renegade. The game begins with Naked Snake being tortured by Lieutenant Cunningham, a member of FOX who is looking for the other half of the Philosopher's Legacy. The first half was retrieved from the Soviet Union by the US at the end of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Snake finds himself in a cell next to a Green Beret called Roy Campbell, who is the only survivor of a team that was sent in to investigate the base.

The two escape from the base and make their way to a communications tower nearby where Snake hopes to make contact with his former commander, Major Zero. Instead, they talk to his old comrades from FOX Para-Medic and Sigint. They explain to him that Naked Snake and Major Zero are being blamed for starting the revolt and the only way for him to clear his name is to defeat the leader of the rebellion, Gene. Gene can persuade any soldiers to join his army just by using his voice, so because of his vast, growing army, Snake must create an army of his own by capturing enemy soldiers and persuading them to join his side.

Gene, the leader of the rebellion
Throughout the game, as Snake finds the location of Gene, he must take down members of FOX. These included Python, Null and Cunningham. He also finds out that Cunningham was working for the Pentagon the whole time, and just wanted Gene to launch a nuke at Russia to prolong the Cold War. However, Gene knew about this from information from Ocelot, and he wanted to launch a nuke at America to destroy the Philosophers and to make his nation of soldiers "Army's Heaven". He was planning to do this from the new, prototype Metal Gear RAXA that Sokolov had created. Snake goes on to defeat Gene and RAXA, and after fighting Gene, Gene gives him the funds, personnel, equipment and all the information about "Army's Heaven", stating that he will need to use them soon.

When Snake returns, he is rewarded and soon after, establishes FOXHOUND. In the end, Ocelot kills the DCI and takes the documents containing the identities of the Philosophers to "end them". After the credits, Ocelot speaks with an unknown man on the phone. Ocelot speaks of using the Legacy to form the Patriots in place of the Philosophers. Ocelot requests Big Boss be able to join them in their new plan - becoming the Patriots.
