The battle for the Power Station

The power station was attacked by the South American rebels in 2014. By the time Solid Snake arrived, the rebels had given up trying to not destroy the plant and decided to go all out just to drive out the PMC forces, knowing full well they can always repair it due to knowing its functions. Snake, while infiltrating the area, also managed to meet up with Drebin 893, who disguised his Stryker with a rusted up version with its built-in OctoCamo. Afterwards, PMC soldiers traversed as a PA announcement explained the Pieuvre Armement's intentions, with Snake eventually finding a way past them, and ended up having to evade a PMC-owned attack helicopter resembling the X-50 Dragonfly. Later on, due to Liquid Ocelot's machinations, the Pieuvre Armement ended up losing control over their suppressed emotions when the SOP system was taken offline and started fighting amongst themselves. Naomi Hunter, Snake, and Drebin, while attempting to escape South America, ended up getting caught in the crossfire before breaking down a gate to escape onto the High Woodlands Highway.

Behind the scenes

Power Station is a location that appears in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots during Act 2, Solid Sun. The Metal Gear Online map, Virtuous Vista, was also based on the Power Station area in Act 2.


If the player helps the rebels destroy the power station's circuit grid, the PMCs will not be present in the Cove Valley Village or the Power Substation afterwards. If the player either chooses not to help them or fails before meeting up with Drebin, there will be an onslaught of PMC soldiers in those areas. Also, if the former is done, the player can also access a secret area via hang-gripping containing the FIM-92A Stinger Missile System, a rifle scope, a silenced PSS, and some boxes of ammunition.
