Cheats, Codes & FAQs
Control intermission sequences
Similar to the Codec transmissions, you can also push L1 or R1 to zoom in during an intermission. The more you push this button, the more you will zoom. If done correctly you will hear a gunshot. While pressing and holding the button, use the Right Analog-stick to move the view. You will be able to use the zoom feature with these as well, and the onscreen distance or zoom indicators will increase realistically the more you zoom in. You can do this when the game starts, before pushing Start.
Control title screen
Push L2 to hear a gunshot and see a flash at the title screen. Use the Right Analog-stick at the title screen to change the background color.
Control codec sequences
Push the L1 or R1 to move the faces. Push L1 for a negative response.. Push R1 for positive responses.
Avoiding alert mode
If a patrolling guard sees you, you must run into a room where the screen goes black and tells you where you are. If done correctly the game won't go into alert mode, evasion mode, or caution mode.

In the Shell 2, B1 after retrieving Emma, go to the elevator. Plant a C4 in the middle of the bugs crawling around on the floor. Walk a short distance away and enter first person view. Detonate the C4. If done correctly, bugs should splatter all over Raiden's face.

Emma and Snake's funny comments
When Emma is walking on the oil fence and Snake is in his sniper position, take your Directional Mic and point it at both of them.
Knock out guard with cigarette
Have Snake or Raiden put a cigarette in his mouth. Then, hold up an enemy and move as close as possible to him. He will start to cough. After he coughs about four or five times, he will fall and become stunned.
More air and grip
