The boss survival mode will be avaliable after beating the main game (Both Tanker and Plant.)
This can be beaten on any difficulty thanks to youre so bastos for confirming this. Keep in mind all of this is to help you maintain the minimal amount of damage in each fight so you can progress to the next since damage carries over from each previous fight.
The Boss fights and their tips are below
Olga - Tanker
You have to hit her a few time with the tranq gun. Headshots help, but you should keep in mind the first things you should do are take out the spot light and shoot the straps on the tarp on the thing she is using for cover, otherwise she will turn them against you. She will throw grenades if you stay inactive for too long. If you wait til she looks away then switch cover points (far right and far left) you can take her by suprise.
There is usually one item in the back left of this area.
Soldiers - Tanker
There are a handful of soldiers you have to kill here. You get a SOCOM or USP to deal with them. If you want you can crouch behind a box lean to the side and press X and your character will pop out and most times auto aim at someone. Or you can just stand there and dish it out. Headshots w/ the pistol work well, but don't underestimate the tranq gun here. If your having trouble finishing a guy off, use it and eventually he will fall. Eventually, three soldiers damn near running in a row will rush you and then it's over.
There are usually items in the back of this area.
Fatman - Plant
This is just like in the main game. Fatman will lay bombs down, you have to disable them and still find time to kill him. Every now and then he'll take a break from bombs and just shoot you. The trick is to shoot him a few times with the SOCOM or USP and knock him over then put a round in his head. Tranq rounds wont knock him over, but you can use them on his head to beat him. Claymores (which are scattered around the map) will knock him over as well, but they will also hurt you, so I advise you to use them when he is standing still taunting you. If you find you're running short on time for the bombs try disarming them before he activates the counter, so instead of 40 seconds for 4 bombs it's 40 seconds for 1 or 2 bombs. Keep an ear out b/c every now and then he'll fall over on his own.... b/c he's fat. You can use this to put a shot in his head for free. You may also hear him HUFFING at some point. This means he's out of breath... b/c he's fat. Easy takedown
Make sure you stock up in this fight, there is gear EVERYWHERE.
Harrier - Plant
This one is easy. Use the stinger to lock on to the plane and shoot it down. When he goes way far away and out of range follow his progress w/ your stinger and shoot as soon as you can lock on, this will negate the barrage of machinegun fire he was gonna throw you're way. He has a few different attacks up close like missles and such, but the only one that is a huge concern is when you hear this buildup noise, you'll know it. When you hear it get onto the lower level to avoid a firebomb attack. When he hovers to shoot missles and what not, just plug him a few and then hide until he retreats.
There are a few items along the lower levels and Snake constantly throws stuff out of the helicopter he is in. Try to keep as many stingers for the next fight as possible.
Vamp - Plant
First thing, shoot him in the head. Second thing, take out all the lights so he cannot pin your shadow. I use the tranq in this fight b/c when he is in the water you can throw grenades, use the RGB6, and use the Stinger on the water to knock down his stamina line (the one below his health) Depleting this will end this fight just as soon. Just remember he can only take damage until his O2 gague is depleted, after that he will be invulnerable for some reason. Anyway, be aware of his knife throws (both single and multiple) and that when he is glowing red he is damn near unhittable. The best time to strike is in the water, but if you are unable to do that. When he jumps up on the rails up top, he will occasionally not be red and you will be able to hit him, so dodge until this oppurtunity comes up.
Tengus - Plant
You can make this a little easier on yourself and grab the Pentazimin in the corner and snipe a few a these guys, then run up and start wasting them. Use the auto lock on liberally and make sure to stay to one side to avoid undue damage.
Grab every Ration avaliable and don't freak out when a few of them block your Assault Rifle shots. Just keep shooting and eventually you will hit them. You can use the sword, but honestly there are too many of them to make this practical.
Once you kill a set number of them, you will move on.
Metal Gear Rays - Plant
There are 3 ways to hurt a RAY, but they're all basically the same. You have to hit it in it's open mouth. You can kneecap it with a stinger and then it's mouth will open allowing you to shoot there. Sometimes it will roar and you can pop a shot in there. When it's too close it will fire a laser out of its head and you can score a hit then too. You can just hit them in the unopened head and it will do some damage, but not nearly enough to make this easy. Their attacks are pretty simple. They will stomp if they're close, occasionally shot a group of missles at you which you can just keep moving to dodge, and every now and then will move one of their arms and shoot a machine gun at you that you can again just keep moving to dodge (and the above mentioned laser.) Focus on one of them to start with b/c it becomes much easier once one of them is in the arena with you. Just keep pounding away at them and they will eventually fall. Keep in mind there are unlimited stingers to help you with this.
Solidus - Plant
Ok. So this one is straight forward: Beat him to death. Raiden gets a sword and Snake gets his fists. His attacks are pretty varied. He has a lunge, a overthehead swing, a combo swing, a tentacle grab that drains your air (rapid tap Y to counter this) missles he shoots out of his tentacles, an explosive rusing attack, and he blocks most frontal attacks. Easiest way to do this is to make him over commit himself and then hit him in the sides. Just keep at it and use the side to side as after three hits he'll fall and you can't continue to hit him. DONT use the lunge as it can take a second to recover and that can be precious time in this fight.
There are no items or other weapons in this fight so be careful.
