A more useful cardboard box
When you're in the cave area with Meryl, hit her and quickly equip a cardboard box. She'll order a wolf to attack you, but if you're in a box, a wolf will pee on it instead. Now whenever that box is equipped the wolves will no longer attack you.
Cardboard Box Uses
You can use the cardboard boxes you find for transportation. Simply equip the cardboard box that corresponds with where you want to go (there are three boxes in total - one labeled 'Helipad,' one labeled 'Nuke Building,' and one labeled 'Snowfield') when you are inside the back of one of the parked trucks. Eventually, a guard will appear, and you will be transported to the area labeled on your box.

Higher Grip Lv.
When you hang from a ledge, do 100 pull ups (L + R). They have to be good pull ups. Grip Lv "3" is the maximum grip Lv.
Tip: In grip Lv1, you can only fit 4 good pull ups. Dont rush it. Once Snake does a good pull up let go of both buttoms, not just one.
