The Early End

Kill The End before the boss battle   

This is a Metal Gear Solid 3 achievement.

Save before attempting this if you’re going for PEACE WALKER achievement. When you reach Ponizovje Warehouse (exterior), you’ll watch a cutscene that features The Fear and The End (an old man in an wheelchair). Use your SVD to snipe The End really quickly. If you manage to shoot him enough times before he gets away, he will explode, and the wheel of his wheelchair will fly in your direction. If you fail, just load your save and try again. After you get the achievement, remember to load your old save so it doesn’t count as a kill.

Pretty sure you can snipe 'em after the first cutscene you see 'em in.
Random Soldier is pushing his wheelchair away.

...or you could turn the clock forward :)

I think the Xbox intended way is to do the sniper version as turning the clock forward would mean disconnecting the Xbox from the internet. It's still possible, but there won't be a timestamp and I know that annoys some people.

One of the best easter eggs in gamng history. Glad to see Konami put them all in :D

Did this once and right after I shot him, his wheel chair flew into the air and landed right on top of me. Pretty strange but definitely gave me a good laugh.

Yeah it's definitely shooting him at the docks. You get an SVD in the area to the left of it (so don't swim into the next area to trigger him).

I wonder if the trick of putting the system clock forward by a few years will work in this?
(I'm aware that wouldn't necessarily get the achievement)

Turning the clock forward on the dock sequence did not seem to have any effect. I missed the sniper so I got screwed. I tried a few times with the pistol but never seemed to get him even when I saw him explode! Seems a bit glitched to be honest.

i think you can still do the clock thing... but u'll not achieve this... it says to kill him BEFORE the boss battle... so.. you'll have to kill him in the docks to achieve this '-'... it's not that hard... it's pretty easy, tho

i was able to get this achievement sniping the end so it would be safe to say to go for the shot after the cut scene before he is pushed away by the random soldier

No guys! just disconnect from internet. Push time and date ahead by seven days. Reload save, a cutscene will play showing snake find the end. dead from old age. I know this because I've done it so many times on the ps2.

Likewise, Where is the sniper so early on?, could never find it on the ps2 either and just watched the cutscene

The sniper is found just before the docks. If I remember correctly, you can get it by turning left in the river instead of proceeding forward to the docks. There is a new are with wooden platforms and a couple of guards, and the rifle was in some storage room.

Yes i just got the Achievement for Killing Then End before the boss battle and the Achievement for killing The End, so a total of 30G will be yours if you kill him this way, ofcourse you could always kill him this way and restart your save if you want to kill him in battle.

If you are trying to get all of the uniforms then you can't kill The End this way unless you reload after you get the achievement.

I wonder, has anyone tried knocking him out with the Mosin when they re-play the game.

Fucking pathetic. I noticed the left path but chose to go right, not knowing this is the place where it happens. Without the sniper rifle I can't get him, and if I leave to get the sniper rifle, when I return The End is already inside. I had it all written to one save so there's no going back. Fucking lame turn of events.
