The battle with Fatman in "Metal Gear Solid 2" is a tense affair. He plants bombs throughout the fight, which brings up a time limit for you to diffuse each one before going off and killing you. He also wears a thick suit that protects him from harm. You have to shoot him enough to knock him down and then shoot at his unprotected head several times to kill him.

Skill level:
Moderately Challenging

  1. 1

    Play through the game until you begin the boss fight with Fatman on the roof of strut "E." Equip the "Sensor A" item to see where Fatman is planting the bombs. They will appear as yellow blobs on the radar and you'll have to find the bomb quickly inside of this blob.

  2. 2

    Use your coolant spray on the bombs to disarm them. He will stop skating occasionally, so use this time to shoot him. A shot to his skates will take him down quickly, but it requires very precise aim. Shooting him in the body a few times will also bring him to his knees.

  3. 3

    Shoot at his unprotected head as many times as you can before he gets back up again. He will get up and start skating and planting bombs again. Shoot him as quickly as possible while he's getting up, as it is possible to knock him right back down again. Keep up this pattern of shooting him until he falls down and then shooting at his unprotected head until you defeat him and trigger a cut scene.

  4. 4

    Watch the cut scene, then pick up and move Fatman's body. Another bomb will be hidden under him. Defuse the bomb to shut down the final timer and finish the fight.

Tips and warnings

  • You can also punch or kick Fatman until he falls down if you catch him standing still, but he can easily knock you down if he's skating.
  • Plant claymores in the lanes where he skates most often. These will blow up when he skates over them, and this will either knock him down or weaken him to the point where it won't take as many bullets to knock him down.
