    Can you use the radar to get this? I'm reading mixed things about that.
    WilHiteWarrior 12 Apr 2021 19:16
    No, this can only be done on Extreme difficulty which automatically deactivates the radar

    Not sure if this is glitched/bugged or not. I have completed this game on a new save file on extreme 3 times now without using the bandana nor the stealth suit and it still doesnt pop. I get big boss ranking each time.

    Do you have a save you can send me so I can check it out?

    Please note this cheevo is protected against the 'skip half the game' glitch. If you use it, the cheevo won't trigger. That's by design, gotta do this one legit, like a real Big Boss. Sorry. XD

    Difficulty: Extreme on all versions except Original Japanese. Time: Under 3 Hours. Continues: 0. Alerts: 3 to 4. Kills: 25 or less. Rations: 0 to 1. Saves: 0 to 80. Radar: Off. Notes: There are 11 required kills in the game for all bosses. The original Japanese release is Easy difficulty only, but the top rank is Big Boss. You must turn off the radar in SPECIAL to get Big Boss in the original Japanese release, otherwise you get the rank FOX.

    I started a new save file and I haven't gotten Big Boss rank twice now and haven't gotten this. for some reason the end screen says I used stealth and bandana even though I used a fresh save file and never had access to either special items the whole run.
    WilHiteWarrior 3 Apr 2023 04:37
    That's odd. That shouldn't happen if you didn't load a cleared game. If you can send me your save I can look into it

    Need some help. I'm currently at the point after the torture section (1 hour or so in) and i can see in my profile that i already have 2 alerts triggered but i don't recall if i actually got spotted or that's just the scripted alert with Meryl during the 1st prison escape. Does that count? If so then i'm all good because the 2nd time is the one where i got spotted by Johnny using the ketchup but if not then i'll have to restart the whole thing.

    Can I take a ready-made save from Google and complete the game with Rex continuing without detection?

    Absolutely getting my ass handed to me attempting this but I know it will be quite worth it

    @waleedluiz Did it work? My own completed save from Integral worked for some chievos, but I couldn't find any for US MGS with extreme difficulty
