Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

If you push the A and B buttons while in one of the Slugs or vehicles, you will activate the "Metal Slug Attack". Your player will evacuate the vehicle which will activate it to ram into enemy attack and cause total massive explosions and maximum destruction.

When the second endboss appears, jump down to the lower platform to the right. The endboss will be stuck and has no possibility to hit you (only works with the slug).
