*** But if you leave it (say, you have an inventory full of non-perishable stuff alreddy and just wanted MK22 suppressors/ammo), then let them wake up, they run over to it and excitedly eat it.

**Because Volgin is a horrible person who probably wouldn't think of that- even if he did, he is probably well known for his power and cruelty, so it's unlikely he could get a following that way. Even if he could, would he make good on his promise? Likely not, would earn him his own coup down the line. Hence, he takes a more explosive route.

* What exactly made The Fury so special as to be in the Cobra Unit? Rocket fuel flamethrower, jetpack that also runs on rocket fuel, space suit, insanity. He wouldn't have had any of these things (except for insanity, but he probably wasn't as crazy before and he is now) until AFTER he went into space, which was after WW2. And if you take away his equipment, he'd just be a regular soldier. He may be tougher than the standard soldier, and he probably specialized in regular flamethrowers back then. We could argue that maybe before the space gimmick, he was a BadassNormal like The Boss, maybe even almost as good at the whole all around thing, but then that'd play more of a role in his character. So what would have set him apart from the average flamethrower wielding soldier of WW2?

* How did the Boss do to not only be part of the army, but to lead an unit in WW2, when she was a woman ? And more importantly, how did she do to participate in D-Day while pregnant ?

*** It's probably a different gun, as the MSF can build one in ''MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker''.

*** If its any consolation as well, you can get a [[MoreDakka M63]] after you break out, unless you took a detour a few hours ago to Syvatogornyj East and picked it up there. There should be one in an small armory just north of the manhole entrance to the sewers in Groznyj Grad.

** I'd put this down to RuleOfCool. The Dev team put a lot of thought into keeping weapons etc. historically accurate. Maybe rocket fuel isn't as effective as napalm, but as well as fitting the theme it leads to a way cooler death scene from the Fury (in this case, BECAUSE of the thematic significance). Considering the other members of the COBRA Unit, as others have stated, reality may not have been at the top of the developer's lists.

**Pretty sure that's the point...she was nothing but an idealist that was betrayed over and over again by her country, but she loved the ideal of her country, the ideal of a perfect world. Everyone misinterpreted her will because it wasn't some grand plan to begin with, it was just the sad speech of a soon to be dead woman. Thus, she isn't treated as a paragon but some kind of revolutionary thinker by Big Boss and others when she never really was one.

*** This trooper believes that Zero had retired from active military service at the rank of major sometime prior to the game. This is backed up by the fact that FOX was not officially part of the Army until the end of the game. They are probably all CIA people during the game.

** Gameplay-wise, it's using UnusableEnemyEquipment to set up a NoGearLevel (even with a few rounds for the revolver and the fork, most players feel quite uncomfortable and challenged without their main weapons and especially CQC). Story-wise? Snake doesn't trust the reliability of field weapons which may have been poorly maintained, instead preferring fresh weapons from armories. They had to use this explanation in this game because unlike some of the others, nanomachines and DNA reading tech hasn't been developed yet.



** The voice actor wasn't different between the scenes. He was voiced by Richard McGonagle both times. WordOfGod states that the reason for it was that Johnson wasn't supposed to be the one to give Snake the medal or the title, but instead it was to be the CIA director. Then the development team decided Johnson should do it. If you want a non-technical answer, people act differently depending on preparation. You get a phone call, you have to respond to it in time, your natural speaking voice and accent are there. But if you have a chance to write a speech beforehand, like for the award ceremony, you already have what you want to say in mind and it reduces accents quite a bit. I know this from experience due to my southern drawl disappearing when I give speeches.
