A new Metal Gear Solid game ever seeing the light of day is incredibly unlikely, as the series has told nearly every story possible in its lengthy timeline over the years. Beyond that, a Metal Gear 1 and 2 remake is really the only option left when so many Snakes are dead. Aside from a filled-out timeline, a massive issue for a potential Metal Gear Solid sequel is how nearly every Snake, good or bad, has met their demise. Protagonists and antagonists alike have met their demise due to bullets, sword strikes, and viruses throughout the Metal Gear series, leaving many character histories complete.
Venom Snake - Metal Gear
He was first introduced in the Metal Gear game as the commanding officer and father of the main character, Solid Snake , later revealing himself as a terrorist leading a faction known as Outer Heaven. The creation of Naked Snake was made in an attempt to distance him from Solid Snake, despite both being physically similar through their characterizations. Critical reception to Big Boss has been positive, due to his role as a villain and rivalry formed with his former subordinate. Snake's younger persona has been praised as likeable, with critics generally enjoying the execution of his character development in the series designed to shape him into the villainous icon. He initially acts as a radio contact who provides Snake with information about mission objectives, as well as weapons and equipment. After the mission is completed and Snake kills The Boss, he learns that the defection was part of a mission to be carried out, and the government ordered his mentor's death to prevent war. Having spent six years wandering the globe, Snake finds himself involved in an armed uprising caused by Gene 's rogue FOX unit in the fictional San Hieronymo peninsula in Colombia and learns that he has been convicted for instigating the revolt. Hoping to clear his name, Snake forms his own team of specialists by recruiting both old allies and defecting enemy soldiers to his cause, one of whom happens to be Roy Campbell. After he learned that The Boss' death had been planned all along, Snake defeats Gene and obtains the funds for Army's Heaven.
As always with our video game based Kit List blogs, one of the main aspects of the games are their customisability. The metal gear series of games allows you to customise the way your character looks, the weapons they use and the equipment they carry. As such, these Kit Lists can only be an approximation. There are a huge plethora of weapons available in the video game franchise, but there are a couple that are iconic to the characters. A full list of weapons available in the Metal Gear franchise is available here. Anything canon within the game should work well for this impression.
