Save before attempting this if you’re going for PEACE WALKER achievement. When you reach Ponizovje Warehouse (exterior), you’ll watch a cutscene that features The Fear and The End (an old man in an wheelchair). Use your SVD to snipe The End really quickly. If you manage to shoot him enough times before he gets away, he will explode, and the wheel of his wheelchair will fly in your direction. If you fail, just load your save and try again. After you get the achievement, remember to load your old save so it doesn’t count as a kill.
I think the Xbox intended way is to do the sniper version as turning the clock forward would mean disconnecting the Xbox from the internet. It's still possible, but there won't be a timestamp and I know that annoys some people.
Turning the clock forward on the dock sequence did not seem to have any effect. I missed the sniper so I got screwed. I tried a few times with the pistol but never seemed to get him even when I saw him explode! Seems a bit glitched to be honest.
i think you can still do the clock thing... but u'll not achieve this... it says to kill him BEFORE the boss battle... so.. you'll have to kill him in the docks to achieve this '-'... it's not that hard... it's pretty easy, tho
No guys! just disconnect from internet. Push time and date ahead by seven days. Reload save, a cutscene will play showing snake find the end. dead from old age. I know this because I've done it so many times on the ps2.
The sniper is found just before the docks. If I remember correctly, you can get it by turning left in the river instead of proceeding forward to the docks. There is a new are with wooden platforms and a couple of guards, and the rifle was in some storage room.
"quick question to anyone who has this achievement. If i snipe the end here, do i also receive "the end" achievement?"
Yes i just got the Achievement for Killing Then End before the boss battle and the Achievement for killing The End, so a total of 30G will be yours if you kill him this way, ofcourse you could always kill him this way and restart your save if you want to kill him in battle.
