The safe house was used by the Middle Eastern militiamen to hide from the government-backed Praying Mantis PMC, which was operating within the area. Many wounded members took refuge in the safe house, while commanders discussed plans on how to deal with the PMC forces, and also imprison any PMC soldiers they captured.

In 2014, the mercenary Solid Snake traveled through the safe house in order to reach his contacts, Rat Patrol 01. During this time, the militiamen had recently encountered the elite Beauty and the Beast Unit, and were examining a damaged wing from an unmanned Slider weapon. Several were also rushing through the halls towards the surface, in order to provide backup and reinforcements for the forces stationed outside due to their getting slaughtered. In addition, one of the militiamen was telling his friend about how he got one of the enemy's weapons and had it unlocked by a gun merchant in a building up the street. Snake later met the weapons launderer Drebin 893, who offered his services to Snake.

Behind the scenes

The militia safe house appears in Act 1, Liquid Sun, of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.


Depending on the player's actions beforehand, the militia may dislike Snake intensely, be suspicious of him, or be absolutely praiseworthy of him while he travels through the area. Their disposition will determine how the player can safely pass by. For example, if they praise Snake, he can stroll by without worrying about raising the Alert phase. If they are suspicious of Snake, it is advisable to remain cautious, but if they dislike him, the player should sneak by and avoid being spotted.
