How to make the Ninja free you

After you are tortured, thrown in the cell, and called Otacon, the guard goes to the bathroom. Otacon comes, gives you a few things and then when he leaves and the guard comes back, let the guard go to the bathroom 2 more times. When the guard goes to the bathroom the second time, you'll hear something like a FAMAS. The Ninja comes and frees you!

A more useful cardboard box

When you're in the cave area with Meryl, hit her and quickly equip a cardboard box. She'll order a wolf to attack you, but if you're in a box, a wolf will pee on it instead. Now whenever that box is equipped the wolves will no longer attack you.

Easily cross minefields.

If you don't have the mine detector, but want to cross a minefield without having to worry about blowing up, just go up to the area where you believe mines are and crawl across the ground. Not only will you be unharmed, but you will also receive any claymore mines that you crawl over!
