This post is mostly intended as a reference in case I forget some of the more unorthodox ways of farming DP in MGS4.
Claymores and SG Mines
- Equip the bandana.
- Equip the desired mine.
- Lie down and place the mines in front of you.
- Collect the mines for 120 DP each.
C4 and SG Satchels
- Equip the bandana.
- Equip the desired explosive.
- Place the explosives in front of you.
- Equip the Metal Gear Mk. II / III.
- Roll over to the explosives.
- Press the appropriate button to collect the explosives for 160 DP each.
Disposable Launchers and Difficulty Levels
Disposable rocket (M72A3) and missile (Javelin, FIM-92A) launchers in excess of the inventory capacity are automatically sold at base price if you start a new game. Drebin sells ammo for them for much less.
During Act 5, you can easily max out your DP by buying the following, completing the game, and starting a new game on a harder difficulty:
Bought for 175 DP.
Resold for 15000 DP.
Profit Margin: ~8471.73%
Bought for 150 DP.
Resold for 10000 DP.
Profit Margin: ~6566.67%
Bought for 100 DP.
Resold for 4000 DP.
Profit Margin: 3900.00%
Bought for 1000 DP.
Resold for 2000 DP.
Profit Margin: 100.00%
I recommend buying on Liquid Easy (9,999 capacity) and starting a new game on Naked Normal (893 capacity); your DP is capped at 99,999,999 and a full load of Javelins alone are worth more than that.
DP Base Price List
You should be able to copy and paste this table right into Excel. This lists every item that can be sold to Drebin and what each is worth. Note that the last five are attachments that can only be sold if you're in the same area, buy them from Drebin, then pick them up. Why you'd do so, I don't know; you'd be losing DP.
|Smoke Grenade (Y)||75|
|Smoke Grenade (R)||75|
|Smoke Grenade (B)||75|
|Smoke Grenade (G)||75|
Unmanned Weapons/Gears are worth the following:
Finally, the Cardboard Box you can pick up before meeting with the Metal Gear Mk. II is worth 50 DP.
