How do you get XM8 in MGS4?
in act 2 when you meet drebin. at the power station. just after the cut scene quickly put on the solid eye in night vision if you like. on your left you'll notice some rebels. follow them keeping the solid eye on.follow then around a cornor and you'll see a wooden shelter. it is in there. (by XM8 you mean the gun johnny uses i hope) johnny uses XM8 compact, Ed and Johnnathan use XM8
It depends on your playing style, but desert eagle camo and xm8 adv are the most popular. Desert eagle camo has 9/36 ammo and reloads more than 1.5x as fast as a normal desert eagle. XM8 adv has 35/105 ammo and has a different scope, a 3 shot burst scope instead of a assault rifle scope. In scope, the recoil brings the 3rd shot to the head very easily, allowing for more headshots in scope.
Spoiler Solid Snake does not die at the end of MGS4 but is saved by his "father" Big Boss (Naked Snake) and is assumed by many that Solid Snake died some time after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots from his unnatural aging process. He lives his last days with Otacon (Dr. Hal Emmerich), Raiden(Jack), and Sunny Gurlukovich.
