  • Take damage to save time
  • Fastest all clear
  • Manipulate enemies's appearence
  • Hardest difficulty


1.There is a trick to manipulate enemies' appearence. I use it in some situation just like mission 1 s big helecorp and mission 2 small helecorp. It's not suitable for all enemies,only a few of them may disappear.
2.In Mission 5,in the air,hold left and up,enemies cannot show,but it is not useful in this movie.


In mission 1 get S.CLIP to make mission 4 and 5 boss battle faster. Mission 3 double bombs and metal slug's H gun. Level 4 bomb's power up for the last battle. Each stage's card could be used after mission completed.


Mission 1

Making the hele disappeared,and using S to beat the boss,using a trick to control the direction of Metal Slug's shoot.

Mission 2

Manipulate the small hele's disappearence.Using Metal Slug to kill the boss.The L cannot follow the boss's movement,so using Metal Slug is right.

Mission 3

Get cards for mission 4 & 5 and hitting the dropping enemies as the mechine gun of metal slug turning. Controls the item to fight with the boss.

Mission 4

Manipulating enemies's apprearence to take damage for jumping up. Getting a power up card for mission 5.

Mission 5

Get Shortgun and metal slug to fight with boss.
This is the 1st Edition.So maybe some tactics goes wrong,I submit it for showing a run that using this tactics.And I'm doing some experiment in this game.
