Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops (2006) and Portable Ops Plus (2007)

Developer: Kojima Productions
Publisher: Konami
Series: Metal Gear
Platforms: PSP
Genre: Action-adventure/Stealth


Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, is an action-adventure stealth video game developed by Kojima Productions and published by Konami in 2006 exclusively for the PlayStation Portable (PSP). Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus (officially abbreviated MPO+), the game's stand-alone expansion focused primarily on online play, was released for the PSP in 2007 in Japan and in 2008 in other regions.

MPO is the third Metal Gear title made specifically for the PSP (counting the two Acid turn-based games but not Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel, since the latter was not a game) and the first one to retain the series' action-based play mechanics. It is set in the same continuity as the mainline Metal Gear series, though it is dubious as to what extent it is part of the main timeline as Hideo Kojima, who neither directed nor wrote it, was notably not fond of it and has stated some parts of it do not fit. Set in Colombia in 1970 on a fictional peninsula named San Hieronymo, six years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, the game follows the exploits of Naked Snake after his former unit, FOX, goes renegade. The game also chronicles the eventual founding of FOXHOUND and The Patriots, as well as the inspiration of the military state Outer Heaven.

The following weapons appear in the video game Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops:


Mk 22 Mod 0 "Hush Puppy"

A tranquilizer gun based on the S&W Model 39 pistol using 9mm tranquilizer ammunition. It's fitted with a suppressor. This is the first weapon the player acquires in the game. The ideal gun for tranquilizing enemies for recruitment or neutralization. Can be procured at the Ravine after receiving a spy report.

Colt Single Action Army

The Colt Single Action Army appears once again as Ocelot's weapon of choice; the ricochet ability from previous games is maintained. He also uses it in the main story to take out the CIA director and his bodyguards nearing the ending, and presumably also left it behind to frame his death as a suicide.

Mosin Nagant M91/30

A Soviet bolt-action rifle deployed in large numbers in the Second World War, however it fires modified 7.62x54mmR tranquillizer darts in-game holding 5 rounds per magazine. Players of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater may recognize this weapon used by The End. The player must use this weapon at an appropriate range and be more careful with their aim as this weapon is not silenced like the MK22 and has a lower firing rate between shots. The scope has thick crosshairs making it suitable for use at night. Can be procured at the Nuclear Warhead Storage Facility via a Spy Unit Report.

M1919 Browning Machinegun

Although not acquirable by the player, the M1919 was utilized by Metal Gear RAXA during the boss fight against it. Dialogue from Snake when uncovering some evidence of what was in the shipping container implied that the ICBMG, the actual Metal Gear threat in the game, also carried the same weapon system.

RPG-7

Soviet-made rocket propelled grenade launcher using 85mm HEAT ammunition ideal for anti-tank and anti-air use. Mobility is lost when deployed. Triggers alert mode upon impact. The player can view down the attached scope instead of locking-on or view from first-person as a shoulder-fire weapon.
