[edit] Background

Sniper Wolf (or simply "Wolf") was a member of the FOXHOUND Unit who appeared in Metal Gear Solid in two boss battles. Wolf was an extremely skilled sniper who could, according to other characters, remain in position for a week without having to sleep or eat. Unlike most snipers, she fought alone without the help of a spotter. She was a lover of real wolves (more specifically wolf-dogs) and kept several as pets. In the remake, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, her wolves mourn her after Snake defeats her for the second time. Wolf was also addicted to anxiolytics ( benzodiazapines. ) (Diazepam in Metal Gear Solid, Pentazemin in The Twin Snakes); the reason she was immune to FOXDIE was suggested to be because her system was so full of antidepressants.

[edit] Games

Snake first encountered Wolf when he, with Meryl, attempted to gain access to the communication towers of the military base on Shadow Moses Island. Wolf attacked Meryl, forcing Snake to collect a sniper rifle himself and return to face Wolf in a duel before he could pass. Snake apparently defeated her, but this turned out to be a trick by Wolf. She and several Genome Soldiers quickly captured Snake when he attempted to proceed. Wolf again fought against Snake in the snow field between the communication towers and the hangar building where Metal Gear REX was being stored. It was revealed here that Otacon had been in love with Wolf due to a case of stockholme syndrome, and he pleaded with Snake to spare her. Snake ignored him and defeated Wolf.

Wolf was briefly mentioned in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. She was mentioned by Otacon after the death of his relative. Footage from Metal Gear Solid showing Wolf was used for the flashback. This also happened in Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance.

In Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, she is again referenced. The Beauty and the Beast Unit member Crying Wolf is named after her. Crying Wolf and Snake battle in the Shadow Moses snowfield where he fought Sniper Wolf again.
