Posing Beauties

While fighting in a Boss battle (exclude Vamp and Liquid Ocelot, only the Beauties), complete the first Boss phase (Beast form). After that, they will come out of their protective suit and try to grapple you. If you run around long enough and prolong the time (usually about five to ten minutes), the screen will fade and you will enter a white area all alone with the Beauty. Note: A timer will appear at the top of the screen and she will attempt to grapple again. Just equip the camera and aim it at her and she will pose for you. Click the camera on and off to get various poses. Eventually the timer will run out (3:00) and the Beauty will die. This works well when you want a new background for your PlayStation3, as the game allows you to take in-game photos and send them to your homepage.

-After defeating any of the four female Bosses, there is a second round where they walk towards you while trying to grab Snake. During this phase, run from them for three minutes and the screen around you and the Boss will turn white. Take out the digital camera you acquired from the mission briefings. The Boss will stop chasing you and do sexy poses for your camera.

-Play the "Oishii ChuhanSeikatsu" Japanese pop song on your iPod while fighting a Beauty and she will start dancing. If you aim a camera at her, she will pose.

Secret area

When you begin Act 5 at the bow of the Outer Haven submarine, there will be two large vents protruding from the floor nearby to the right. Avoid the frog soldiers surveying the area and stand atop one of the vents. You might see items below if you peek through the grid. To the left of your starting point will be a hatch in the floor. Crouch over it to get the option to perform a special action. Press Triangle to have Snake open the hatch, then drop in. Note that the hatch and the area beneath deck are difficult to see if you do not have your night vision switched on. Crawl through the vent into the space under the first vent. You will find the "Metal Gear Solid Main Theme" iPod song. Continue crawling into the next space and you will find an RPG-7. On the far side of the crawl space, there will be another hatch that Snake can use to return to the sub's deck. Snake will emerge in perfect cover behind some containers, but the Frogs might hear the hatch closing and inspect your area.
