The full recap of the third Metal Gear Solid:
Part 1 of this prequel shows Snake was ordered to rescue Sokolov in the jungle of Russian territory. Para-Medic will be helping out by telling Snake all about about hunting snake… and other food. Even though the story has lots of twists, the first conversation with “The Boss” already gives a good motive for her thoughts.
In part 2 Snake start sneaking around and shows some basic Close Quarters Combat (CQC) skills. Snake finds Sokolov, and Ocelot’s team GRU appears.
In part 3 The Boss is introduced. The next mission for Naked Snake is to rescue Sokolov, eliminate all Cobras and find The Boss. The code-named of this mission is “Operation Snake Eater”
