How to Beat Psycho Mantis in MGS: Master Collection (Second Controller)

One of the most memorable moments in the original Metal Gear Solid was facing off against Psycho Mantis, and the boss battle returns as part of the MGS: Master Collection Vol 1. The MGS: Master Collection Vol 1 includes ports of the biggest three games in the series that debuted on the PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2. When the game was first released in 1998, the boss battle with Psycho Mantis was truly game-changing, breaking down the fourth wall.

Even more impressively though, he was able to anticipate your controller movement and stop you attacking him. The way around this was to move your controller into the second port slot on the console.

Once the initial cut scene is over and the battle starts Psycho Mantis will be able to read your moves and avoid any attacks, as he did in the original Metal Gear Solid. However, this time there is no second slot to move your controller to.

If you hit the PlayStation button before going back into the game you will bring up The Stance menu and in Controller Settings you can change your connection to Connect as P2. Once you have connected as P2 you should have no problem beating Psycho Mantis, who will no longer be able to read your moves. He is one of the easiest bosses in the original Metal Gear Solid and can quickly be taken down. You will need to knock Meryl down twice during the fight, but Psycho Mantis can’t take many shots from Solid Snake.

The boss battle with Psycho Mantis is one of the most memorable in gaming and MGS: Master Collection Vol 1 manages to still do it justice.
