Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • CQC: Unique and highly efficient martial arts allowing a soldier a variety of options while not denying them the use of weapons. It generally has the user taking a stance with knife and a handgun thus he/she could grab/throw opponents in melee, threaten/execute people with the sharp blade or shoot down opponents who're otherwise outside the user's range. CQC mostly focuses on grabs, throws and other methods to disarm the target, allowing one to take down enemies without killing them or use them like a human shield. A skilled practitioner can even "chain" throws, allowing to rapidly neutralize an entire group of soldiers. Big Boss was one of the creators of the technique and developed it while training with the Boss. He didn't use it for several years following his time in the Green Berets but eventually became skilled enough to defeat the Boss in hand-to-hand combat. Big Boss then went on to instruct Venom Snake in CQC personally, who became highly proficient in the fighting style.
  • Weapons: Venom has used a huge range of weapons including, but not limited to: combat knives, pistols, shotguns, SMGs, assault rifles, sniper rifles, grenades, mines, plastic explosives, rocket launchers and anti-aircraft cannons.
