door frequency help?

#1 Posted by AjayRaz (12431 posts) -

this is for Metal Gear Solid 3. the forum bug is preventing me from attaching it to that page :\   
 
i'm in the east wing (or something) of Groznyj Grad right now and i have to take out the general dude to steal his clothes. when i approached a door EVA called me and said that i need to ask somebody for the frequency. i thought this meant that i had to interrogate somebody.  
 
so i did, and the frequency he gave me lead me to some kickass frequency that played mellow music and restored my stamina. alright, cool i suppose, but why didn't the door open?  
 
after that i interrogated 2-3 more people and the frequencies they gave me didn't do anything (i got NO RESPONSE).  
 
i tried knocking on the doors and asking more people but i'm not getting anywhere. what am i missing here? it's metal gear solid so it's probably something that i would never think of, but it would be nice to get some help.  
 
thank you!

Capture a guard.  
Hold the knife to him to get the information by pressing L3 as you normally do, then he will give it to you 
 Call that while standing in front of door to open it. You should hear a click.     
 
For easy help:

i did that and nothing worked :\  
 
although i'll try it again cause i might of did something wrong. i just found raikov's body and that's what i was looking for the whole time. now i have to take him to the locker room (which i suppose is the room i need the frequency for). i'll use the frequency you gave me. 
 
thanks!

@AjayRaz: I hope it works.  
I actually feel like playing through it again now. 
 
And skip the sniper fight all together by shooting that old fart the first time you see him in his wheelchair  
I know, spoilers, but you're already past him :P 
 
You're in water, he gets rolled out, after the Cutscene he gets rolled back into some warehouse-ish thingy and you snipe him. 
He goes "The Eeend" I think and he blows up, the wheel from his wheelchair flies into your face, and you don't have to fight him ever. 
 
So easy =D

@AjayRaz:  Do you still need help? If so, I need to know what difficultly you're playing on, because on easier settings you can get Raikov (or whatever his name is) when he's walking around outside so you shouldn't need to unlock doors if you're playing on medium or below.

I need to play that again, probably my favorite game ever

Once you're dressed up as raikov those doors open automatically i think, and aside from getting the scorpion they contain nothing significant.
 
Just wear the scientist uniform and wait upstairs by the locker room. When he comes up just use the fake cigarettes to knock him out.

@Steve_C: @ZanzibarBreeze: @organicalistic_: thanks, but i'm at the final boss (i think?) so i'm way past that :P

Then no.  He's not the final boss.  Thankfully, the real final battle is much cooler than that one.

I found the shotgun pretty good on that fight. I remember running around him and firing it straight into his back. Also you can use CQC to throw him to the ground, followed by shotgun. You can also use the revolver to ricochet bullets and hit him from behind.

Uh huh, i like how you're calling him the final boss =D 
 
No real tricks or tips here i can specifically remember, just go at it and you'll figure it out eventually.

The trick is to shoot Ocelot in the face.
