Alright. Let’s blow a walking battle-tank to hell and finish this.
Liquid : Snake, did you like my sunglasses? You’d point a weapon at your own brother?
Why did you disguise yourself as Master?
Liquid : So I could manipulate you more easily. And you performed quite well I must say. Although the boys at the Pentagon are probably saying the same thing…
What the hell are you talking about!?
Good question, Snake.
Liquid : Following orders blindly with no questions asked. You’ve lost your warrior’s pride and become nothing more than a pawn, Snake.
Liquid : Stopping the nuclear launch, rescuing the hostages… It was all just a diversion.
Plot information in the last few crucial minutes. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Liquid : The Pentagon only needed for you to come into contact with us. That’s what killed the ArmsTech president and Decoy Octopus.
You don’t mean…
Liquid : That’s right. You were sent in here to kill us so they could retrieve Metal Gear undamaged along with the bodies of the genome soldiers. From the beginning, the Pentagon was just using you as a vector to spread FoxDie!
Shit. The Pentagon wanted some people dead.
Fox Die! …It can’t be! Are you telling me Naomi was working with the Pentagon?
Liquid : They thought she was. But it seems that Dr. Naomi Hunter couldn’t be controlled so easily.
Liquid : We’ve got a spy working in the Pentagon. He reported that Dr. Hunter altered FoxDie’s program just before the operation. But…no one knows how or why.
She changed the virus? Why?
I wonder… maybe they arrested her so they could find out the answer to that.
Liquid : No doubt. But I had no idea she was motivated by such petty revenge… we still don’t know what changes she made to FoxDie’s program. Oh well. It doesn’t matter. I’ve already added the FoxDie vaccine to my list of White House demands.
I really want to know what she changed.
There’s a vaccine?
Liquid : There must be. But that woman is the only one who really knows. Anyway, it might prove to be unnecessary.
Why is that?
Liquid : You were successful in coming into contact with all of us, so we must have all been exposed to the virus. It’s true that the ArmsTech president and Decoy Octopus were killed by FoxDie… But Ocelot, myself, and you, the carrier, were apparently unaffected.
A bug in the virus’ programming?
Liquid : Hmm, could be. In any case, if it doesn’t kill you then I’m not worried either. After all, our genetic code is identical.
So it’s true…you and I are…
Liquid : Yes, twins, but we’re not ordinary twins… we’re twins linked by cursed genes. Les enfants terribles. You’re fine. You got all the old man’s dominant genes. I got all the flawed, recessive genes. Everything was done so that you would be the greatest of his children. The only reason I exist is so they could create you.
They’re identical? Then why does Liquid have Blonde hair?
I was the favorite, huh.
Liquid : That’s right! I’m just the leftovers of what they used to make you. Can you understand what it’s like to know that you’re garbage since the day you were born!? But…I’m the one father chose.
…So that’s why you’re so obsessed with Big Boss. Some warped kind of love.
Liquid : Love!? It’s hate!! He always told me I was inferior and now I’ll have my revenge!! You should understand me, brother. You killed our father with your own hands! You stole my chance for revenge! Now I’ll finish the work that father began. I will surpass him… I will destroy him!
Switch to decaf, buddy.
You’re just like Naomi.
Liquid : Well I’m not like you. Unlike you, I’m proud of the destiny that is encoded into my very genes. Yeah!
(Liquid hops into Rex’s ockpit.)
Liquid : Snake! Your blood will be the first to be spilt by this glorious new weapon. Consider it an honor… a gift from your brother. Now, I’ll show you! The power of the weapon that will lead us in the 21st century!
Uh, blow the damned thing up with over-powered weapons? It’s a good suggestion.
Oh, fuck me.
Well, we’re hid for now. Let’s figure out how to kill it with fire.
Otacon : Snake, Rex’s armor is impregnable. You can’t do any damage with the weapons you’ve got. Rex uses the latest advances in compound armor. The only way you can pierce it is with a high performance HEAT (high explosive, anti-tank) round.
So what do I do?
Otacon : Rex’s pilot seat operates exactly like a VR system. It’s got multiple sensors connected to a high tech interface used for the controls. It’s completely self-enclosed and shut off from the outside environment.
He’s not using his naked eyes?
Otacon : That’s right. So if you could somehow destroy the sensors… Do you see that round plate on Rex’s right arm?
Yeah, that thing that looks like a shield?
Otacon : That’s a radome. If you can destroy that thing, it won’t be able to use its electronic equipment.
So he’ll be blinded?
Otacon : Yeah. Try to hit that radome with a Stinger missile.
So that will stop it?
Otacon : No. Rex was designed so it can be controlled manually too.
Otacon : That part that looks like a beak is where the pilot seat is. In an emergency it will open up. Rex’s armor is perfect. You can’t destroy it.
You told me that already.
Otacon : But the interior is a different story.
I get it…first I destroy the radome. That will force him to open up the pilot’s seat.
Otacon : Right. If you can shoot a Stinger missile into the cockpit, you’ll destroy the computer control system.
You intentionally designed it with a weak point?
Otacon : It’s not a weak point. I like to think of it as a character flaw. People just aren’t complete without some type of character flaw, don’t you think?
I guess so. I owe you one, Otacon.
Thanks, Anime nerd. Also, final boss itt.
So long as we stay in this little corner, Rex can’t get us. So, let’s take time to make a strategy.
Step one. Throw Chaff grenade, fuck Rex’s systems up for a few precious seconds.
Step two: Launch Stingers at the shield thing.
Step three: ???????
Step four: Profit.
I think I got this picture a little too early.
FUCK YEA–er–FUCK NO.
Fox : Hurry! Get away!
Fox : A name from long ago. It sounds better than Deepthroat.
So it is you!?
That ninja is so awesome.
Fox : You look terrible, Snake. You haven’t aged well.
Liquid : I’ll send you back to hell!
Hey, Liquid? SHUT IT.
The ninja fucks up some radome. Hells yeah.
Fox, why!? What do you want from me!?
Fox : I’m a prisoner of Death. Only you can free me…
Fox, stay out of this… What about Naomi? She’s hell bent on taking revenge for you.
Fox : Naomi…
You’re the only one who can stop her.
Fox : No…I can’t.
Oh god, why?
Fox : Because I’m the one who killed her parents. I was young then and couldn’t bring myself to kill her too. I felt so bad that I decided to take her with me. I raised her like she was my own blood to soothe my guilty conscience. Even now she thinks of me as her brother…
Fox : From the outside, we might have seemed like a happy brother and sister. But every time I looked at her, I saw her parents’ eyes staring back at me… Tell her for me. Tell her that I was the one who did it.
Mang, you can once we get out of this hell hole. Let’s blow up the bad guy, first.
The rest will be in pictorial form for awhile.
Ninja moves itt.
Battle tanks with ninja-cutting lasers itt.
Har har har, Liquid is fun-e.
Uh. No. But keep talking while the ninja thinks.
Hey, Liquid, SHUT IT. Wait. I used that one.
Hey Liquid? SHUT THE FUCK UP. k thx. die.
Fox : Now in front of you. I can finally die. After Zanzibar, I was taken from the battle neither truly alive nor truly dead… an undying shadow in the world of lights. But soon… soon. It will finally… end.
No! It’s no good. I can’t do it!
This was the speech in high school. This also means I was IN high school when the game came out.
Fuck, fuck fuck. Fuck.
Don’t be saying that.
Oh, it’s ON NOW, BITCH!
Hey, Liquid? SHUT UP AND DIE!
Again, we hide in out little hole and pelt the fucker with Stingers.
I got a better idea.
oshit, SNAKE GET UP!
Wait, what the fuck is that?
