Factual error: The wrestler is killed by Snake stabbing the back of his head with a spiked bat, having rather long and thick spikes on it. As the Wrestler falls against the net, the back of his head is shown as he is slumped over the net. There is no wound on his head, nor any trace of blood, despite having one or more large spikes just jammed into it.
Continuity mistake: When Snake kills the wrestler, he does so by jamming the nails of his spiked bat into the back of his skull. Snake releases the bat, which stays stuck to the wrestler's head. The next shot, the bat is now missing as the wrestler falls forward against the net, dropping his own bat to the floor. But Snake's bat is nowhere to be seen. Then a few moments later after Snake activates the tracer, the bat is shown on the back of the wrestler's head as he is slumped over the net, which Snake knocks off. Yet the wrestler's own bat is no longer seen, which was by his feet before.
Continuity mistake: When trying to escape the gang on Broadway, Snake and the others are in a yellow station wagon they stole from the Duke's men. They turn the car around to back it through a barricade of cars to escape. One shot shows their car's head lights are on, but just before it hits the barricade, the headlights are suddenly off and then are back on again in the next shot.
Revealing mistake: When Hauk finds the president's escape pod, there is a fire burning on the right of the screen. The camera was poorly placed in this part as the fire is horribly reflecting in the lenses, causing a bad distortion on screen that is highly distracting and covers the pod.
Other mistake: When Snake is injected, and his timer is set to 23:00, Hauk tells him the glider is waiting. The next scene has Snake getting into the glider, but when he radios in, Hauk says there's 21 hours left. Snake was pretty upset that he didn't get a full 24 hours; knowing his life is on the line, why would he take 2 full hours to walk out the door and over to the glider that was waiting for him?

Continuity mistake: After the President gets up the wall, Snake is waiting for the harness to be lowered down to him again. The Duke shoots at him and puts a line of bullet holes across the wall. In that shot, you see the holes are not close to any of the horizontal lines of the tiled wall. But in the shot where the harness is being lowered, you see the line of bullet holes is not only close to, but crossing one of the horizontal lines at an angle.
Continuity mistake: On top of the World Trade Center, some "Redskins" are rocking the Gulf Fire back and forth over the edge and cut it loose. You see very large red markings on the Gulf Fire's wings. But when you see it falling in the next shot towards the camera, the red markings are gone and the wings are solid black.
Continuity mistake: As Snake makes it back up to the top of the World Trade Center, he sees Brain, Maggie, and the president in a fight with a gang of "Redskins". The Redskins cut the line on the Gulf Fire and it plummets to the ground. Maggie, Brain, and the President are hiding behind some air ducts and tubes. just before the shot cuts, the President pops his head up and looks around, making his head the highest of the 3. Maggie is holding her gun pointing up, and Brain is sitting still just looking at the President. It then cuts to an angle behind them. Suddenly the President is down on his hands and knees again, Maggie is holding her gun lower and sitting up straight, and Brain is leaning back looking like he is about to fall over.
Continuity mistake: In the Chock Full O'Nuts diner, Snake passes a pack of cigarettes to a woman hiding in the diner. The woman lights a match and Snake tells her to keep her hand over it. The woman then says a line and lights the cigarette. At this moment, she is holding the cigarettes pack with two fingers around the top area of the packet. In the next shot, she is suddenly holding the bottom area of the pack.
New this month Plot hole: When Snake, Brain, Maggie, and the President get to the car at the WTC, Snake opens the hood when the car is dead, and somehow he is out in the open when the Duke is about to shoot. First, how would he get there with a crossbow trained on him, and second, how did Maggie pass the revolver to him, when he hands it to her to open the hood of the car?

Revealing mistake: When Snake and the others are running across the 69th Street bridge after the taxi is destroyed, Brain runs to his left, insisting that's the safe path. He gets blown up by a mine. We can see the bright lights of the FX spread out in front of him; the mine is exploding before he actually steps on it.
