Before he begins Solid Snake's interrogation, Ocelot says:

enter image description here

"Don't even think about using auto-fire, or I'll know."

If you use auto-fire anyway, what happens?


If the game detects that you are using autofire, the electrocution continues, controller input is disabled and you'll die.

The game detects autofire via a button-press threshold. If you get over this, the game assumes you use autofire and you'll die.

Reading over some sources, it appears that some auto-fire controllers simply won't work (the auto fire is disabled) and some controllers won't be detected (because they don't reach the button-press threshold).

  • Darn, I was hoping there would be a secret cutscene or something. Thanks! – Steve V. Jan 9 '14 at 19:11
  • @SteveV. - I think Ocelot has some unique lines he says, when he detects auto-fire. Something like "You have a death-wish, boy?". Could be that this is only in the remake (Twin Snakes), though. – 5pike Jan 10 '14 at 7:10

If you USE autofire, you get a Game Over.
