6. Choosing your Equipment: Weight
Items and weapons in the game have a weight stat. If the burden of Snake’s load (five weapons and eight items) exceeds 70 kg, his Stress will increase, thus reducing his Psyche and overall effectiveness. Just be sensible when it comes to weight distribution, and make sure you compensate for particularly heavy objects with at least a light one if you notice that you are approaching the 70 kg mark. This is generally only a danger when preparing Snake for a boss fight, as there’s a natural tendency to bring out rocket launchers and the like for such occasions.
