Knock Out Enemies with Downward Throw

Snake has a unique downward throw that puts opponents to sleep. If the opponent has high damage, this can be a great setup for a KO.

Iconic Cardboard Box as Taunt

Snake's taunt involves him hiding in his beloved cardboard box. When an opponent gets near and pick up the cardboard box...well...you'll just have to see for yourself.

Attack with the Cardboard Box

The cardboard box you use during your taunt can also be used to deal damage to opponents when cast off. The box falls off of Snake's back, so be mindful of the direction you use it.
