The beginning should be easy. The first you see the Octopus, shoot her as fast as you can, then she uses those missiles (two) try to shoot it, then she pops up again (twice every time after you shoot the missiles)... the missiles will come at first 2, then 4-6 the next time. That's all I know and its just practice... it gets pretty easy after a few tries.

Just have to be very quick.

She kinda freaked me out the first time I played it, lol...

...there's not much to help out on, here, it's mostly hand-eye coordination, you need a good eye, so keep your eyes peeled!

Laughing Octopus herself is relatively easy. Once she appears shoot her directly in the head as much as possible until she disappears. The missiles are a bit trippy but you can shoot them down once you get the timing of their movements down. You can do it, good luck and kick her arse!

You need to shoot one of the two puppets that he's controlling on either side of him.

Keep shooting it until one of them falls to the ground.

When it's ON the ground, shoot it a single time and you'll stun mantis.

You'll put your gun away and pull out some kind of device - Shake your phone/ipod touch repeatedly until he reappears infront of you and smacks you.

When he uses the attack where he starts throwing blades at you, usually after you've taken off 1/4 - 1/2 of his health, make sure to shoot them the moment they appear by his shoulders, and not when he's thrown them at you, otherwise you're in for a world of hurt.

If it's hard for you to beat laughing octopus, then it will be very hard to beat raging raven etc. But if you use the right tactic, it should be no problem. Hope you can beat it!( was very easy for me)

Yes, the 6 missiles round is the hard part that kills me every time...

getting old, can't move my finger fast

back to play uniwar, at least it let me think and move first.

OR

Brother in Arm is way much better that it covers all the shooting skills in MGS, plus I can move around.

Now, I may take a break from MSG and try again later.

Thanks all for the help, cheers
