Complete Mission 4 without losing a single life. This can be done in Single Player or co-op.

Now this level is harsh at first but can actually be easier then Mission 3 Master, but still my advice is just to practice, practice PRACTICE!! The first part of the level in the desert is full of flying grenades, bullets and projectiles! Your concentration level will have to be at an all time high to get through the desert without being hit!

If you want to use the Camel that appears at the beginning of the level (Highly recommended!), it comes with a very useful machine gun. Only downside is that its very easy to accidentally press cn_X & cn_A at the same time which makes your camel go kamikaze and run off, then you are pretty much screwed.

Be sure to free Hyakutaro Ichimonji: Solution for Hyakutaro Ichimonji in Metal Slug 3 he can help you out with the pesky soldiers and deal decent damage to the tanks and planes that attack you.

The planes are top priority during the desert part as they fire rockets that can be tough to avoid, you can jump over the rockets but sometimes this can cause you to accidentally 'kamikaze' your Camel. Any soldiers that spawn behind you can be taken out by simply moving back into them with the Camel, but always be on the lookout for the grenades they can usually throw before you can take them out.

Take the tanks out asap and dont be afraid to charge towards them as they spawn, but as always keep an eye on grenades from the soldiers. Also watch out for soldiers spawning behind you who dont throw grenades as they will try to melee you, they have to be very close to you to hit you though.

After the desert section take the lower path ithrough the doorway as shown in the video, open up the chest if you want to as the items will bag you some extra points (if needed).

Once in the Drill Slug dont be shy with the cn_Y button Drill attack against the huge brown slugs (Giant Caterpillar) as you will pick up ammo for the Drill along the way. So long as you stay in the Drill Slug and dont allow it to take too much damage this route is really easy to survive without dying. Along this route there will be two Laser Guns ('L') that you can pick up which can help you a lot against the boss so try to keep hold of these if you want too.

The boss (Sol Dae Rokker) is just another harsh part of this mission, when it goes to fire it's purple beam from its mouth just jump off the castle before it hits you. But dont lean into the jump too hard as you need to time it right to land back on the castle. For the beams it fires when its plate starts spinning this is pretty much down to luck and instant reactions! There is literally split seconds to dodge each beam as it fires a decent number in all directions towards you.

The Red spinning plate means its going to fire red beams at you that go directly for you in spurts of 3 or 4 diamonds. Easy to dodge to quickly shift to the left or right the moment it fires. For the flying spirit dog type things they can be quiet annoying, you need to time your jumps to avoid the explosions which sounds easy but you still need to focus on each dog that's about to attack.

Now hopefully this video can help anyone out who is stuck but I've never took the route that was taken in the video. I'm gonna check this out when I get chance with the Arcade version just to make sure its not a PC only type path. But if anyone can confirm whether it is or not before me that would be much appreciated. Thanks and good luck!

EDIT: This route does work, to use the handle to open up the hatch. Face the handle and press cn_X making sure your character has a hold of the handle continue to press cn_X until the Hatch is fully open. If you can make it past the desert with the camel you can breeze through the level until the boss, but even then the boss is not as bad as it looks.
