Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Achievements


Send Otacon a picture of the marine with no pants   

This is a Metal Gear Solid 2 achievement.

This can only be done at the end of the Tanker chapter. When the captain is giving his speech, sneak past the soldiers and try to look at them from a safe position. You should spot some soldiers wearing just boxer shorts. Equip your camera and take a picture of one of them. When you reach the terminal at which you can upload the Metal Gear Ray photos to Otacon, he'll comment about the photo and you'll earn your achievement.

Alternatively, on every pair number of Tanker playthroughs (2nd playthrough, 4th playthrough), all guards on Hold 3 appear in their underwear. Take a photo of them and upload it to Otacon in the terminal.

You must align the camera properly to make it work. You'll know it worked the moment you take the picture, because Snake will comment something. Try taking pictures from different positions until Snake mutters something to himself.

You get it from beating the game once and starting a newgame+ (doesn't bring much over besides unlocks for doing certain things). And all the marines in the first segment will be pant less.

@8, I'm going off very old memories, so forgive me if I'm wrong. But as far as I know, yes you're right that on the second playthrough, there's an entire hold full of pantless marines, but I think this achievement refers to the one single pantless marine in the middle of one of the groups of fully clothed ones. And I think, I *think*, he's there even on your first playthrough.

@ Night45Fox

'THE' Nake Marine entails one person. And you DO NOT have to beat it once in order to see him. He's there on your first playthrough in the first area with the Marines.

When you come out of the first duct in the room with the marines before going into the 2nd holding area turn around and look at the marines. you will see him right in the middle. When you take a good photo snake will say good. then upload it to otacon

The marine with no pants is in the first hold near the front. If you look over the side in first person before you climb down you should notice him.

Make your way through the room as normal and before you go through the door to the second hold you should be in a decent spot to nab a photo of him. You can do this on the first playthrough. Once you reach hold 3 just upload it to the computer and you should get the achievement once Otacon sees it.

Make sure you upload the photo of the marine to Otacon BEFORE you take all 4 piccies of Metal Gear, I made the mistake of taking one of the marine and and getting all 4 shots of MG THEN uploading, but Otacon looked at all 4 Metal Gear photos first and once he'd seen them all, he had no reason to carry on looking at the rest of the photos and then it was mission end LOL, i may of said a swear word to myself.....
