-**A:​** ​ Scientists will tell you’re not one of them if they get too much of a look at your face. However, bumping into them resets their AI and gives you time to run away. Scientists and engineers will not react negatively to the cardboard box; they’ll just stare confused until it’s out of their line of sight. It’s worth nothing ​also, enemy soldiers AI is a bit broken and if Snake attacks a scientist or engineer while in disguise, they will focus only on the scientist or engineer being attack, rather than register Snake as an attacker. Meaning, you can punch a scientist unconscious and the guards will not go into Alert against you. +**A:​** ​ Scientists will tell you’re not one of them if they get too much of a look at your face.

 **Q: What are the differences between NG/NG+?** **Q: What are the differences between NG/NG+?**
  
-**A:** New Game+ allows access to the Patriot, Grenades //​Unlocked//​ camo, along with any boss camos that you picked up during the previous playthrough. The Patriot'​s infinite ammo and the fact that it allows Snake to run (rather than walk) over bodies makes it useful. The Patriot allows for an easy and fast Fear strategy, though this can be similarly achieved by picking up the AK-47 in Rassvet during Operation Snake Eater. Grenades //​Unlocked//​ give you infinite grenades, allowing you to skip picking up grenades and opening up strategies in the early game. Being able to use camos unlocked in previous playthroughs allows for lethal Ocelot and lethal Volgin without losing out on their camos (Animals, Cold War). The latter is most useful for Extreme. Already possessing The Boss' camo saves some time on her fight, as she doesn'​t drop it.+**A:** New Game+ allows access to the Patriot, Grenades //​Unlocked//​ camo, along with any boss camos that you picked up during the previous playthrough.

 **Q: Why do runners use Snake Eater Camera? Subsistence cam is better!** ​ **Q: Why do runners use Snake Eater Camera? Subsistence cam is better!** ​
 +
 **A:** Snake Eater (SE) Cam is the most favoured for most areas of the game. The reason being it offers more consistent visual cues and removes the need to control a camera & Snake. MGS3 challenges movement a lot, so removing an element of movement to control can help in more ways than one. Subsistence (3D) Cam is still used by some runners, but majority agree the SE cam is better for the majority of the game. Regardless, both are used throughout the run, it is therefore recommended to run on Subsistence (PS2) and HDC (PS3) as opposed to Snake Eater (PS2). Subsistence Cam is most useful for aiming at guards and certain navigation points that can be confusing with Snake Eater Cam. To put it another way, perspective can be confusing at times with Snake Eater. Unless you are playing on Android or Xbox One, Subsistence Cam typically introduces lag.  ​ **A:** Snake Eater (SE) Cam is the most favoured for most areas of the game.
