Bloody Snake on MGSV: The Phantom Pain pictures by Kojima

Kojima is once more playing through Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to check for things that need fixing. He shared some more pictures, this time of Snake’s uniform being completely covered in blood.

MGSV-Blood-Covered-Snake-1

“Blood all over him in result of being shot too much.”

MGSV-Blood-Covered-Snake-2

“Taking a break in the chopper hovering around.”

And here is a picture Kojima shared on his Japanese account a few days back, that shows Snake with a new weapon:

    • Mini gear

      I do love the amount of blood tpp adds in, it makes the damage show more.

    • Cipher

      It seem like another (played-like-a-fiddle) incident will happen to Big Boss in TPP
      maybe then he’ll know that Kaz is ….

    • Shalashaska

      Lets hope it’s like that even in game :'(

    • Will

      Snake looks like a freaking demon on those first two GIFs.

      PS: I love that song hahaha.

  • The Law

    I wonder if you will be able to play as Snake without ponytail. Because that is just stupid.

    • Sly

      Think of it like this. When The Boss played the villain she switched to a ponytail.

      • gerber

        And liquid kind of too when he was impersonating Miller

      • Mini gear

        kojima symbolism

        • Mr.Pony

          Ponytails are evil…

      • Shalashaska

        The rule of kojimaism! To make a villian.. a ponytail is neccesary!
        Also

    • ObsessedGeorge

      The only downside that l see in the ponytail is that it doesn’t have physics. It stays like this. That being said, l do have a ponytail myself. 🙂

      • Shalashaska

        i’m sure that will be fixed 😀

      • Big_Boss88

        Yea maybe it will be fixed, but if not it don’t bother me really :). I’m growing ponytail too :P, got the beard already hehe.

        • ObsessedGeorge

          Nice! Beard like long beard you mean?

          • Big_Boss88

            Pretty long goatee :3, but need to change it into BB style. lol
            Not like ZZ Top if that what you thought XD.

            Anyway beards and ponytails ftw! >:D

          • ObsessedGeorge

            My goatee is just like The Undertaker’s in his 1999 Ministry Of Darkness attire.

    • jack_coban

      I think the ponytail looks pretty cool. If I had long hair, I’d rock a ponytail.

    • Big_Boss88

      Why some hate the ponytail *sniff* …

      It looks badass and so cool imo <(^O^<) (>^O^)> !!!

      Well maybe Mother Base will have some kind of a barber shop for players who don’t like it 🙁 …

      • Shalashaska

        How is this?

        • Big_Boss88

          That’s more like it LOL!

  • IrionDaRonin

    Big “Shoulder” Boss. He must have been in the gym, hahaha.

    • No Place For Hayter

      He is much beefer isn’t he? Great now he looks kind of strange lol.

  • Le Guy who drowned quiet

    looks like the aramide managed to “absorb” a damn lot of blood.isnt that a shotgun though on his back.

  • Mini gear

    this game has more blood then gz which is fitting

  • Big_Boss88

    Really cool feature as TPP will be dark so it fits :). Reminds me of Nuclear trailer beginning where Snake was covered in blood.

    MGS is one of the rare gems in gaming, that give me lot of joy, sorrow, pain,fear,fury and epic end to remember ;D.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Your comment made me laugh out loud a true lol. Your cobra unit reference was so well done it was so awesome I had to laugh, great one 🙂 I love how you worked “The End” into it lol.

  • So, Kojima is showing off some things, but I wonder what is he hidding from us…
    Imagine all the possibilities, all the secrets and new things we’re going to find only when we get to play this.
    I hope this site can share some of those informations once the game is out so we can get to 100% together xD

    • Big_Boss88

      I bet we have only seen like 5% or something of the whole game and what we can do etc XD.
      I am imagining all the things and it’s getting me pretty damn excited haha ^_^!

      • Mini gear

        I watched red band again, hype jumping to hyper speed

        • Big_Boss88

          Yea same here, hyper speed hype haha. My daily routine is to watch GDC, Sins and Nuclear before going to sleep XD. Will do it soon ;). 😛

          • Solid

            LOL 😀

      • CTCCoco

        Watch your hype.

        • Big_Boss88

          There is no limit to TPP hype my friend, don’t worry :). It is the only game that has made me watch trailers and demos of it almost every day for 2 years lol, so if I gotta be careful of my hype then it is way too late already for that haha :D.

        • Shalashaska

          If this game is even 50% better than GZ’s gameplay..HYPE SATISFIED! xD

  • Shalashaska

    My view on this

    • No Place For Hayter

      God that is awesome, lol.

      • Shalashaska

        I want KUWABARA AGAIN! If at anytime in the game..that creature goes kuwabara kuwabara.. my heart will skip a beat and jump out of its chest! Really hoping kojima does that

        • Plissken

          While that could be a hallucination of Volgin, and most likely is, I realized that someone else might fit that description…Python from Portable Ops. It’d be interesting to see if Kojima addresses Portable Ops in The Phantom Pain. Python also wears a sneaking suit. Its a long shot, given that the “Burning Man” has a coat similar to Volgin and his suit underneath is also reminiscent of Volgin’s.

          • Shalashaska

            I know but lets be honest.. every inch of that burning guy SCREAMS VOLGIN. I dont even understand why people had to think so hard on who he was when they initially released that trailer. As for me, The second I saw that, i jumped from my seat screaming “VOLGIN” at my computer. After playing MGS3 the amount of times I have, you can tell volgin from a crowd of 1000 people with your eyes closed xD
            Portable opps will be addressed but my guess is that that part is for Null.. AKA gray fox 🙂
            As for the hallucination, Yeah.. no doubt that that burning guy doesnt really exist.. plus points to that theory when we see Mantis 10 seconds later.. but I’d Still like to battle it out with Volgin in the FOX ENGINE! Just one more time! 😀

          • Plissken

            I’d like to know how they’re going to follow up the boss fights of Snake vs The Boss from MGS3 and the fist fight with Liquid Ocelot in MGS4. The Peace Walker battle was intense as well, but not like the MGS3 or MGS4 fights.

          • Shalashaska

            True that but That was the psp.. that hardware is not powerful at all. So considering that this is being made for consoles will probably be 20times the size if Peace walker in terms of GBytes.. plus PW didnt have all that of a CQC system to handle a proper boss fight that was 1v1. Although, I do think it did amazing by itself.. the peacewalker battle and then the Zeke battle.. everything was awesome for a handheld.. actually it broke the barrier for handheld.. it pushed psp to it’s limits..

            And plus considering all that we’ve seen from trailers, gameplays and GZ.. The boss fights will be EPIC. EEEEPPIICC.

  • RevolverRoden

    STANDING…

    • Big_Boss88

      On the edge :3…

      • RevolverRoden

        of the crater (of hype)

        • Mini gear

          like kojima once said

    • gerber

      …HERE I REALIZE

    • Big_Boss88

      I love dark time in MGSV, well it looked fantastic in GZ with stormy rain and can’t wait to see it fully in TPP. I’m a ninja and move in shadows during night >;).

      • Shalashaska

        My main and first objective: 1. Get the weather changing device.
        2. MAKE IT RAIN! MAKE IT RAIN! RAIN!

        • Big_Boss88

          Haha those are some great objectives ;D !

  • Shalashaska

    Also wouldnt that be awesome.. yeah it may be too gruesome for some people but to me, it just adds depth to Big Boss.. a blood splatter on on his face from his enemy’s body.. that would be amazing because it adds to the villian big boss is becoming.. i hope he (kojima san) isnt going to shy away from dripping blood! Do it Kojima San!

  • Big_Boss88

    So the blood shows on the chopper when chillin’ and partying with Quiet + when moving around I guess. But I wonder if it shows during cutscenes, that would be pretty cool too :).

    • Mini gear

      I wonder if we need to manually clean or goes away after few minutes, I’ll probley just sit in the flying helicopter while raining for a few hours cause it feels cool

  • Big_Boss88
    • Shalashaska Has Landed

      Can’t forget General Ivan too!

      • Big_Boss88

        Awesome 😀 !

    • Rikimaru

      Awesome pictures guys, thanks for sharing!

  • Liquid25

    I’m guessing the sniper rifle next to the seats is either Quiet’s or for Snake to choose a weapon before he dismounts from the chopper to start the mission.

  • CrazyGuy207

    That looks like a new suit in the first two pictures.

  • CrazyGuy207

    What if MGSV had a zombies co-op mode? Yes or no?

    • Big_Boss88

      I read yesterday on n4g some “zombies in mgsv?” article, and I hope there won’t be. So many games have them already. But who knows what Kojima adds to the game :).

      Co-op could be fun though.

      • CrazyGuy207

        Sort of like Nazi Zombies in Call of Duty. Maybe not zombies, but a co-op, round based, survival game mode.

        • Big_Boss88

          That kind of co-op might be nice yeah, although I usually play games for singleplayer experience. Sometimes co-op or mp, depends on the game. But as TPP will have MB and MGO multiplayer, might as well put that kind of mode maybe :D.

          I haven’t really played CoD much so dunno how they did the zombies in them.

          • CrazyGuy207

            Pretty simple really. You shoot the zombies, that gives you points, you use points to buy guns or upgrades and open doors to access more sections of a map, and if you get hit enough you die.

          • WhatTheJuicay

            if MGSV has zombies, they would be in the form of child soldiers. We are supposed to be shocked right? well theres your controversy. Killing herds of African children (with guns) for diamonds. They drop diamonds and ammo when they die. .. Or you could just tranq them, or Fulton them.

          • Mini gear

            its kinda zombies eventually get almost invincible and they pull cheap 2 hit death moves, not much of a fan of it

    • gerber

      God please no. I believe Kojima is more original than that. I’m tired of the zombies since the 90′

      • Big_Boss88

        I think RE:Code Veronica in 2000 or RE1 Remake was the last game where a truly enjoyed zombies. Then they started to spam them too much imo. I do enjoy playing the old games and REmake again, it’s because of survival horror with zombies.

      • CrazyGuy207

        Maybe like a survival mode then, like in Advanced Warfare, without the exo’s of course. I use Call of Duty as a reference because that’s really the only game I’ve played with zombies.

      • RevolverRoden

        I’m 100% certain there will not be zombies (at least in the traditional sense) in MGSV.

  • LukesAlike

    What is that, a railgun? XD

    • Venom_Sina

      It has a scope on top of it,if my eyes serve me well!!I think it’s a sniper rifle or something.

      • LukesAlike

        That’s the weirdest stock for a sniper rifle I’ve seen. And he already has a Back weapon. What could it be…?

  • Kazuhira-on-the-roof

    The more blood the better

  • solidsnack

    who’s pictures are these i wonder?

    • RJRO

      pherhaps fallen comrades.

      or game developers.

    • Golgari

      I think these are side quest POW’s that you can kill or resque in the game like with Glatz and Palitz from GZ. They are not only there but at the heli’s ceiling too. I’m guessing that player will be given a small information about these soldiers and all of their faces wll be different and player can resque these special POW’s or kill these criminals in the game. When mission will be complete the photo will disappear.

    • Shalashaska

      There could be many possibilities.. ive been thinking about them from the day the initial helicopter pictures were posted. It could be POWs, or Snake’s men in trouble who need to be helped in the field, or his side targets to kill or capture for interrogation or it could just be a simple easter egg

  • Mini gear

    that’s a big hip weapon

  • Mini gear

    I die of happiness when I think about how one day well be holding and playing tpp. (while wearing eyepatches)

    • Big_Boss88

      Me too ;D …

  • Javier Sosa

    I don’t like to kill people in metal gear games. I always do my best to avoid that.
    But maybe in this game we should do that in some missions.

    • WhatTheJuicay

      I only don’t like to kill people in metal gear games because you get the best points that way. It seems you always get punished for killing, when I really want to kill. Heres to hoping TPP doesn’t punish you for killing, even now that it seems every mission has a ranking system.

      • Andrea Feletti

        Probably Big Boss’ discent into madness allows us to kill more people and not getting punished

        • WhatTheJuicay

          Yea I did notice in one of the gameplay demos, they killed a couple of guys.. went in alert, called an air strike and still got S rank. So idk.. here’s to hoping it stays like that.

          • Mini gear

            but in another gameplay he got 3 kills and 1 alert getting a c, still in that airstrike one he got 16 kills

    • Big_Boss88

      Same here, I always prefer stealth rather than rambo. But sometimes I try other ways.

      • Mini gear

        in gz it was a bit tough since enemies hit you from everywhere endlessly

  • Mini gear

    its been so long fighting this war of waiting, I just refound a past hope
    Big_Boss88

    1984 the year The Phantom Pain takes place in, 9 years after GZ.

    Or a hidden release date!
    1+4=5 2015
    9-8=1st Quarter (months 1-3)
    1+9+8+4= 22
    1 year from the prologue Ground Zeroes

    22.03.2015 ! O_O
    Well either way, it release late this year or early 2015.

    • RevolverRoden

      V/V/201V

      • WhatTheJuicay

        people can make anything make “sense” with numbers. The Number 23 (Jim Carrey) is a prime example.

    • Big_Boss88

      Haha yeah that was my ultimate release date theory last year xD , who knows maybe it happen lol 😉 .

      Hype for the game – Valid
      Hype for release date announcement > TROLOLOLOLOLOL
      Because Kojima = Trolljima! 😀
      but yea.. lets hope youre right, friend!

    • Big_Boss88

      Woooooah what in the name of lord is this?! o_O

  • DarpaLT.Sigma_

    I’m a constant visitor to this site , I literally have dreams of playing TTP n can’t go a day without watching mgo2 survival highlights on youtube .. i follow @metalgearonline official twitter n read everything, I watch trailers constantly n play GZI was born 1990 , n raised The name itself is fitting bcuz I’m in pain of not playing the phantom pain

    • No Place For Hayter

      Information overload, lol. Welcome, glad to have you, the more the merrier 🙂

      • DarpaLT.Sigma_

        I Can’t help it, I’m in so much pain. MGS is my life

    • Shalashaska

      Welcome. I have diagnosed your issue from the mere post you posted. 15 years of experience comes handy in cases as such. What pain you are suffering is called Phantom pain.
      Phantom pain sensations are described as perceptions that an individual experiences relating to a game that is not physically part of his/her life. Game loss is a result of either removal of the game by its disc being destroyed or simply not been given the release date or demo.

      • DarpaLT.Sigma_

        But y no release date after 2 years … it doesn’t make sense

    • DarpaLT.Sigma_

      Sorry. I’m very drunk n wasn’t done…. lol. I was born 1990 raised watching my older bro playing the original metal Gear Solid n followed the series ever since. my only regret is not playing the first Metal Gear Online on PlayStation2. I love playing Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops plus it was very addicting . I cannot get over the memories I have of recruiting soldiers, I cannot stop thinking about how people use hack soldiers with S3 stats in every skill to play online. I hate hackers n i kno lord kojima hates them too. That’s probably y he shut down the servers to mgo2 :'( . I’m in pain , constant pain. N i wish I cud meet kojima himself n make him sign my mgs4 game case n take a picture with me . Thats my life goal at the moment . I want TTP on my x1 soo bad that I only get intoxicated jus to watch his trailers some more n cry …. why are we here , jus to suffer …. I can’t not play a mgs game online everyday . It’s like Snake is interrogating me to give him info, n i jus cry n say I’m hurting frm the wait . Y do ppl suck at games n glitch FTW. That’s soo gayy .. i hope mgsv is unhackable , n bans faggy glitchers for good. No game creator is more original n more creative than Kojima . I jus wish my dream were reality… I’m dying inside . The hype is killed when every day I’m not playing TPP. SOME1 HELP ME , I CANT TAKE IT !!!!! AAHHHHHHHHH, WHYYYYY. :'(

        I’m really wishing for a march release but not that sure…

    • Mini gear

      what if kojima actually released it on a placeholder date 0_0

  • Venom_Snake

    This game is definitely going to be worth all the “blood”, sweat, and tears that KojiPro has put into it.
