Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD (PS3)

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD (PS3) Trophies
Complete Stealth
Clear the game without entering alert mode (not including events where alert mode is mandatory)

This trophy is not as difficult as it may sound, you just need to stay out of sight from enemies and cameras. The enemy can "see" you as long as you never see the ALERT marker in the upper right hand part of your screen. It can go CAUTION but that's as high as it can go. It is wise to save your game often because if you are seen, you must reload your last save to clear your alert record; dying and selecting Retry will not work. If you collect enough dog tags (Tanker-76, Plant-80) each character will have access to their stealth suit which makes this trophy even easier to obtain. Make it through the Tanker-Plant scenario without causing a single alert to earn this trophy.

Mandatory Alerts:

Tanker - Olga Fight
Tanker - Engine Room Hallway Fight
Plant - Fortune Event
Plant - Fatman Fight
Plant - Escaping Core 1
Plant - Harrier Fight
Plant - Vamp Fight
Arsenal - Tengu Gauntlet
Arsenal - Metal Gear Ray Army Fight
New York - Solidus Fight

Just to let every one know I have completed the whole game on hard with end mission if alerted and did get caught by a camera yes camera twice and just retried. I did not get the trophy. You must play Tanker-Plant without EVER setting off and alert except when it is maditory for the story. I jst waited till I had the stealth suit for both chapters and ran threw it on easy to minimize people (and I had one last tag I missed in the taker I had to grab) and it popped.

Does anybody know if it counts as an alert if Emma is seen on the Strut L Oil Fence?

Update! I think that it does, even though you don't go into "Alert Mode."

If Emma gets spotted its ok, I just got this trophy and her getting spotted twice didn't affect the trophy. (Hint for those having trouble - Save every so often so if you do get caught/alerted DIE then exit and reload your save data) WORKED FOR ME.

At the summary screen at the end of the credits I got ALERTS 3 TIMES. So I went on a fury rampage state until I finally settled down and pressed X to proceed and the trophy poped!? Not that I complain, but that was wierd.

You don't have to die if you get spotted. Just press and hold L1, L2, R1, R2, select and start at the same time. The game will reset to the main menu. It is faster than dying.

@7 I also had that WTF face when it told me I had 3 alerts but then when it told me my rank on the next screen it popped up.

L1, L2, R1, R2, select and start doesn't work on PS3, only on PS2. You can check how many alerts you have on Raiden's Game over screen. Clean game has 3 mandatory alerts, first being Strut L Oil Fence and other two near the end of the game when you have to kill a lot of enemies.

L1, L2, R1, R2, select and start does work. Sry, just realized have to hold it like 3-4 seconds.

got it yesterday
not so hard but i highly suggest that if you are discovered (meaning when the particular sudden sound "bling" is heard when a soldier discovers you(lol) ) you quit your game and load your file even if you managed to kill/tranq him before alert icon popped up, i have been reading cases that sometimes this counts as a sudden-like alarm so be careful

When I was playing on Very Easy, I got spotted by a guard on the Tanker and tranqed him before he called in reinforcements on his radio. NO ALERT indicator popped up. Went through the rest of the game without this happening again and got the trophy. So in my case, it was okay to get spotted, but I highly recommend avoiding it to be safe.

When you are going through the tanker part of it, if you get spotted by the marines in the big room, does that count as an alert since no alert market goes off?

Second question, when you're snipping for Emma, if guards see her, does that count as an alert?

I have the Legacy Collection and I just got this trophy. Wanted to share my findings.

I was on my first playthrough on hard difficulty. I had gone through the game with my alert level at 0 until the oil field. After hours of trying, I found it impossible to do it alert-free, but I think the game gives you a pass, so long as you don't select 'continue' when you fail.

Same goes for the late game tengu fights, possibly boss battles. Starting that area makes your alert go up by 1, which is okay. But that goes up every time you continue, so it screws up your count. You need to load a save game up or it won't work. Generally, never select continue and always reload a save when you die/fail.
