Metal Gear Solid 4 Online Walkthrough
Items - Cardboard Box / Drum Can

The cardboard box is a portable means of disguise that every character starts with. Wearing it and staying still will cause many enemies to overlook you. As long as you're out of their way, and preferably in a nook rather than out in the open, the cardboard box is an effective means of "hiding in plain sight". There are many decoy cardboard boxes scattered around the level, so you're at least relatively safe if you stay still. If you're going to move with it, move for short distances, and be ready to stop at a moment's notice. The best use of the cardboard box is for ambushes - wait for a lone enemy to go past, then take him out with a gun or CQC. If you come under heavy fire while wearing it, it's possible that your cardboard box will be destroyed and you'll lose it until you respawn.

The drum can is the more resilient cousin of the cardboard box. Unlike the box, there is only one drum can per stage, and it must be found as an item box. When the person carrying the drum can dies, the drum can item box is dropped and can be picked up by another player. Strategy with the drum can is similar to that of the cardboard box - stay still and wait to ambush. The differences between them are as follows. Firstly, the drum can is much stronger, and can block some gunfire (it also can't be destroyed like the box). Secondly, it is possible to execute a "Drum Can Attack" by pressing triangle to fall over onto your side, then moving with the left analog stick. Roll over enemies to knock them over; just be aware that after a while you'll get back up and have to puke. It's a fast attack good for taking down a column of enemies. The drum can's main weakness is that it's not as surreptious as the box. There are other barrels scattered around the maps, but the drum can is full of holes and will be noticed by a watchful foe.
