South America Confinement Facility

A confinement facility in South America, operated by Pieuvre Armement in 2014.

The confinement facility was a PMC owned facility within South America.

Facilities and geography

It was subdivided into three sectors: the southeast sector, which contained no facilities but had a large lake as well as had a Canard Rotor/Wing in patrol of the area, the northeast sector, which was a large compound that had a watchtower and various buildings with some items, and the northwest sector, which was a fairly small compound containing only one cell. It also contained some prisoners from the South American rebel faction. Salt mines were also prevalent throughout the area.[1]

Shortly after attempting to take down a PMC-owned power station, various rebels attempted to storm the confinement facility. Solid Snake himself snuck through here in order to track down the lab where Naomi Hunter was being confined. At this time, he also made contact with Raiden and Rosemary. Upon discovering the size of the facility, Snake also considered the possibility of arming himself with weapons by raiding the arms locker. The rebels eventually manage to take over the confinement facility, and used an armored bulldozer to break into the Vista Mansion. After the SOP system was shut down due to Liquid Ocelot's machinations, the PMC soldiers began to lose control over their formerly suppressed emotions and started fighting each other, with Snake, Naomi, and Drebin 893 eventually getting caught in the crossfire while trying to escape.

Behind the scenes

Confinement Facility is a location that appears in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, during Act 2, Solid Sun. The Confinement Facility, as well as the Vista Mansion, are the only battlegrounds in Act 2 that canonically have the South American guerilla forces winning (i.e., they are the only locations that the guerilla forces win without the player's involvement).


If the player decides to free the prisoners within the compound, the trust level within the South American rebel faction towards them will increase.
