Snake and Otacon infiltrate the military installations and facilities of the world, delving into their compounds through stealth and cyber hacking.

The name "Hal" is a direct reference to the computer HAL 9000 from the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, one of several references to the film which is present in Metal Gear Solid; in the Otacon ending of the game, Hal and Snake make direct comparisons to the film   more
