Metal Gear Solid 4 – 8/12 Author Tips

8. The OctoCamo


Snake’s OctoCamo system goes way beyond the camouflage system found in Metal Gear Solid 3, and has several different modes. In Automatic mode (generally speaking, the most effective), it enables Snake to blend in with the textures and colors of his surroundings. In order to enjoy the functionality of Automatic mode, Snake must either be prone or pressed up against a wall and remain motionless. After a short pause, you will notice his suit change to match his surroundings; a sound effect accompanies this process. If you check the Baseline Map in the top right-hand corner, you will see Snake’s Camo percentage increase as the transformation takes place.


In Manual mode, you choose one specific camo pattern for Snake that doesn’t automatically adapt itself to the environment. This is only really effective if you are prepared to alter it as Snake’s surroundings change, and is also limited to “memorized” surfaces and terrains that have been previously stored.
