The Big Shell is a stage in Metal Gear: The Ultimate Patriot.
An orange decontainment facility with several bridge connected struts set on the waters of Manhatten. Is split into the Heliport, the Box Factory, and a connecting bridge.
Like all stages, The Big Shell has three different levels
- Heliport: The very peak of the shell where the harriers are stored and sent away
- Box Factory: A small room designed to malfacture cardboard boxes for shipping, a favourited location by Solid Snake
- Connecting Bridge: One of many long railed walk ways made to make a connection to get to strut to strut
