This one was planned before Metal Slug X,but I choose a wrong route,so I stopped this one at first. This is the longest Metal Slug because of the universe autoscoller scene. And the biggest difference between X and 3 is the smoke cannot do damage.

If you want to see another route's run.Watch this. http://www.mediafire.com/?jll4318hh233qqk It is a run before Mission 4 that choose the main route

About Missions

Mission 1

Go up and avoid lags.Using 2 Armors to fight with boss

Mission 2

Get a C,and using zombies' blood 5 to kill the aliens.

Mission 3

Select a shorter route and using L and H fight with boss.

Mission 4

Getting fat to manipulate enemies' appearence,and Marco must wait for Fio to manipulate mosqito's movement.So there is no influence.Manipulate luck in the boss battle,get L in the left.

Mission 5

Heave luck manipulation.Getting useful bombs. Alien brain battle getting 3 L. Getting an S before the 3rd door. Last boss it can manipulate luck to get bombs.But if do that,I must stop attack to manipulate it appaar. Cannon smoke of Mehicle Slug cannot do damage to the boss.So I get out of Mehicle at first.


All of the items is determined before the enemie's appearence,and it is according to the frame and HP. So I have worked on this for a long time.


mtvf1's lua script that can help me find the random memory address. Sonikkustar's route suggestion.

Have fun now.

Nach: Getting this to sync was a pain in the neck, but it works. Nice run of the craziest game in the series. Good response, accepting as first run for this game.

sgrunt: Well, since this is syncing for me, and no one else seems to be up to the task...
