Snake faces the Metal Gear Supercomputer in Outer Heaven.

The Supercomputer was the main control system for the Metal Gear weapon developed by Dr. Pettrovich in Outer Heaven.


Outer Heaven Uprising

Main article: Outer Heaven Uprising

During the Outer Heaven Uprising, Dr. Pettrovich was forced to develop Metal Gear by Outer Heaven after his daughter Ellen was taken hostage. Following Ellen's rescue by FOXHOUND operative Solid Snake, a grateful Pettrovich revealed that Metal Gear was located in sub-basement 100 of Building #3, telling Snake to destroy the Supercomputer that controlled it with plastic explosives. After defeating the four soldiers that guarded it, Snake ultimately destroyed the Supercomputer and eliminated the threat of Metal Gear.

Behind the scenes

The Supercomputer appears in the Nintendo Entertainment System version of Metal Gear, replacing the titular weapon as the penultimate boss in the game, due to hardware limitations.[1] Unlike the Metal Gear boss of the original game, there is no specific order in which to place the 16 plastic explosives on the Supercomputer, making it less difficult to beat. The fact that Metal Gear's functions are all controlled by the Supercomputer indicates that it was an unmanned weapon in the NES version.
