** And finally we have Mission 30, a pre-boss gauntlet which requires you to assault a hidden base. It's jam-packed with people, many of them S-level. They all have helmets, regardless of what missions your Combat Team are performing. It's so large that {{Pacifist Run}}s are simply not viable: you can't sneak out and Fulton anyone without becoming a bullet sponge, and before you finish sleeping the last guy the first one has already woken up again. Your choices are to go loud or go home.

Added DiffLines:

*** Alternately, [[spoiler:by going into the enclosed area behind the terminal and standing at one end or another, the player can drastically limit their manuverability and not have to worry about the zombified regular soldiers. And then all you need to worry about is keeping an eye on the CQC prompt to stab their knives through their stupid faces and/or chests until they're out of armor, at which point you stop speaking softly and unload with any big stick you see fit. Try an LMG and some variant of shotgun, including the revolver. If they dodge away, that probably means the other Skulls are about to make a slow, highly telegraphed attack.]]

* FailedASpotCheck: In Mission 45, [[spoiler:Snake is so focused on Quiet when he comes to cut her loose that he fails to notice the two soldiers with rifles just a few feet away, even though they're behind Quiet.]]

*** In mission 45, [[spoiler:we get to see her drowned and almost raped. Her pale skin, blue lips, dead, lifeless eyes-oh, and her shirt fell open so you can also see her boobs. This is what you wanted, right?]]

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The Cipher soldiers attacking the hospital at the beginning. LeaveNoWitnesses? Check. KillEmAll? Almost. They actually bother checking the bodies of each body they come across in case they're FakingTheDead and actually caught Snake, and probably would have killed him had [[spoiler: The Man On Fire]] [[WildCard not appeared on the scene]].
