Kojima shows MGSV figures of Venom Snake and Metal Gear Sahelanthropus

Several Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain figures are on the horizon, and Kojima shared some new pictures of four different items: Nendoroid Venom Snake by GoodSmile, Union Creative’s Venom Snake and both Sahelanthropus figures (one model kit by Kotobukiya and one painted figure by Sentinel).

    Sahelanthropus design in the game was fantastic. Best Metal Gear design to date.

    • 6god

      Bold statement. And I would agree but RAY is too attractive.

      • César H. Sandoval

        I love Ray, but I may go with ‘thropus because of the transformation into full mecha, only.

        The only MG I actually find ugly is Excelsus tho, all the others are great designs imho.

      • I think this is a good mix between Rex and Ray. I personally never liked Ray for it’s smooth design.

        • Josh Houchin

          I never cared for Ray’s design that much until I got 3A’s MG Ray. Something about being able to really see it in front of me made me appreciate it in an entirely new way.

        • Greyfox98

          Same here, but you can’t quite beat REX though, that’s why I like this new Metal Gear so much

          • glitchbomb

            Same here. Its like rex+!

        • I always liked Ray a lot because it was very futuristic and made more sense to me in terms of usability and futurism… Futuristicness?

    • Gatsu

      I think so too, its really cool.

    • It does indeed look bad ass. I love it, and really wasn’t expecting the REX to form and stand up into sahelanthropus. But in terms of the games I find it funny how a future metal gear is inferior to an older metal gear.

      • Nate Barrett

        It’s not that weird if you consider that Huey designed these and he wasn’t always around to use his mad science to make newer, similar designs. Also, I do recall Otacon saying his designs never got as elaborate or crazy as his father’s. Something like that. So, it’s plausible I guess.

        • Yeah actually didn’t think of that. Makes sense. Cheers dude.

    • Mr.Sixes

      It’s basically the inbetween of an orbital frame and rex.

  • Lewis

    Man, that Chicken is so fucking high.

    • It has seen some real shit

  • AeroGre

    ermagerd eli in the cackpit spurliersss

  • Josh Houchin

    Oh man, I can tell that Sentinel Sahelanthropus is going to break the bank. I better start saving now.

  • Y Jebai

    Yay, Nendoroid Boss! I will get you!!

  • Gatsu

    Looks nice! But dammit, I still haven’t tried my chicken cap XD. When I do 2nd playthrough gotta use it during cutscenes, lol.

    Anyone else listening Elegia while playing? It gives the feels :).

    • I forgot that the chicken cap exists

      • Gatsu

        The game tried to offer it for me, when failed at couple missions but I was too embarrassed to use it. Although it sort of does look freakin awesome. Definitely have to try :)…

        • Nearing the end of the game, I guess I’ll use it in an upcomming mission

        • Josh Houchin

          It was offered to me at the airport (I think you know which part I mean) but I had too much pride to accept it. I eventually beat the mission without!

          • Cobra Commander

            I think in the future when people refer to “MGSV” and “Airport”, it will be just as infamous as “The Cake Is A Lie” slogan.

        • glitchbomb

          Same.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Nah, boys in the hood here!

      R.I.P. Easy E

      • solidsnack

        Cuz boys in the Base is hard to kill

    • Robin Besch

      damn.. u insert elegia urself or is there a tape to find?

    • No Place For Hayter

      I have a question. What does turning off the chicken cap in options do? because if I fail 3 times it still asks me if I want it? would it give it to me automatically if I had it turned on in the options?

      Also as a basic concept the chicken hat is ignorant and dumb. How do people get game overs? They die, and how do people die? COMBAT! you do not die in stealth, so after dying in combat 3 times they offer you the chicken hat, and what does the chicken hat do? IT FRICKEN LETS YOU GET AWAY WITH 3 SPOTS! HOW THE HELL DOES THAT HELP ME WITH THE COMBAT THAT IS KILLING ME! nothing is more annoying than to have the game KEEP asking me if I want to use it when I’m doing a combat mission or a boss fight, honestly piss off, it would not help!

      There should be a way to get it too piss off considering how broken of a concept it is, but there isn’t, talk about annoying.

      • glitchbomb

        I am not very far but i assume its offering it to help you avoid the combat completely by not getting spotted??

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah that is why they put it in, but it is ignorant of the way the game actually works, 90% of the time you will be offering the chicken hat to people doing bosses or combat only missions, getting spotted isn’t the problem with game overs.

          • glitchbomb

            Ah. Gotcha.

    • hunner

      I wish Elegia, Nuclear, and Not your kind of people were in the game 🙁 at least we got sins of the father

      • No Place For Hayter

        TPP REALLY! needed a lot more MGS music in it, lol.

        • hunner

          Also wish we got more mgs themes instead of just Peacewalkers main theme

          • No Place For Hayter

            Well we really didn’t get love deterrence or heavens divide, we got shortened instrumental versions, which makes it hurt even more 🙁

      • Cobra Commander

        Same here, I am missing those songs too!
        Is it just me, or does it seem like some cutscenes are missing?
        Say Snake and Miller in the hospital post GZ. I would have thought it would have been at the opening, or should I just save my assumptions for the games end?
        (Gettin ready for the “OKB” mission, I have a feeling awesomeness will ensue!

        • hunner

          Enjoy!!

  • Mr. Sir Shpee

    Man… I need those sneks and that Sahelanthropus.

  • J_muse72

    I still haven’t used reflex mode yet! And I don’t plan too either!

    • Robin Besch

      same goes for me with the markers.
      i just love the immersion with no opn screen markers whatsoever… altho i get lost sometimes when im too lazy too check idroid every few min xD

      • Vonkronberg

        If I didn’t use markers, probably the honey bee mission took at least five hours to complete.

        • Robin Besch

          haha i have to say fleeing the skulls and checking idroid to know where to go at the same time was a bitch

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah honestly Kojima and KP were over bloated with their stupid idea of reflex mode. I have never used it and have never even thought of using it, so why the hell did Kojima and his team EVER feel like they needed it in the game? honestly? not only that but to reward people for NOT using what they consider essential.

      • Steven Michael Brown

        I like it

        • No Place For Hayter

          Liking it or not liking it doesn’t have to do with how unnecessary it is.

          • You seem way to upset about this haha

          • No Place For Hayter

            Haha, of course, nothing like something you care about to get you going, lol.

            That being said, I’m not upset about it, lol.

          • AeroGre

            Hey btw I found out that some people were actually able to get mission 46 while still having the butterfly trick active

          • No Place For Hayter

            That’s good………….

            YEAH! I did that too, lol, had to hold off on mission 46 because I wanted to finish the rest of the story first, lol.

          • AeroGre

            Yea im really happy i can get all 3 endings without losing her

          • Well, I still think it is a quite cool Max-Payne-way to be noticed that you lost the S-Rank… Depending on your mood, for example if you are in a moment you don’t feel like playing perfect stealth, I think it can be really fun… The word “unnecessary” is a bit rude, I would have said “not mandatory”, for instance. My opinion is that it gives quite different approach vector that deserve to be tested even if not pure HC.
            For example some players seeing that reflex mode become useless when spotted in the middle of too many enemies, can nicely teach them to adopt a more smooth and progressive strategy ?

          • No Place For Hayter

            It doesn’t really give a different approach at all, all it does is give you an easy get out of being spotted free card if you ACCIDENTALLY get spotted, it can’t change your approach vector because the only thing it helps with is when your plan goes wrong and you accidentally get spotted.

            Sorry if the word unnecessary is a bit rude, but I’m not referring to a person or anything related to a person I’m just talking about game mechanics so I don’t see how my wording around a game mechanic can be rude?

            There are two parts to the game
            Stealth
            And Combat
            The stealth portion needs no help and reflex mode is unnecessary on any level, even for those who use it as a crutch will only find themselves hurting later in the game when they can’t use it, and they shouldn’t have been, it allows for to much of a careless play style, which only serves to harm the players experience.
            Now the combat on the other hand is INSANELY hard and I would have loved ANYTHING to help me with it, as it stand if you are in mid gun fight and get hurt you have to go lie on your belly for a good 10-20 seconds, it is ridiculous, even with the max battle dress on you still get your ass kicked by just one soldier shooting at you.

          • “it doesn’t really give a different approach at all”…
            Well, I have to respectfully disagree, I have this feeling of a different approach since GZ :
            Using reflex mode, you could nail missions far faster if you didn’t wanted to get much involved with stealth.
            I found this first “vector” very entertaining and it was my first way to finish GZ.
            I am getting older, I would love to, but I have unfortunately not enough time to quickly check gameplay+drama and see if I actually like the game, so basically, KP gave to user even more choice by introducing reflex.
            Besides, MGS gameplay is very technical so reflex is a pretty good hook for new comers (although I think I am not one of them since I was playing MG in 1987, was 14 and saving progression on… cassette tapes, not only sony ones :D).
            I then read somewhere that Kojima advised us to 100% (GZ) it…
            So since I had to wait ages for TPP (;D), I started to get back to the good old stealth-way by completing “stealth, no kills” and “no weapon used”… I was then so happy to notice several new “vectors” because I started to see that my strategy was drastically changing from reflex… A bit like feeling you have several games in one.
            This is all why I think reflex is a pretty fancy feature.

            Regarding “unnecessary”, you said you were not referring to a person since you were aiming “game mechanics”. Ok it is worse than that because there is not only one person behind this specific game mechanic, entire teams of often low-level programming killers (like the real Kaz, Kazunobu Hueara who is not part of the crew anymore), so if I were in their shoes and read what you wrote I would feel it like a violent slap in my face, judging like that a feature that took years of effort to become so comfortable (for me at least, but I am sure I am not alone).
            Be sure I am not a so reflex mode aficionado. But I think you are judging things like you expected FPS taste in a MGS.

          • No Place For Hayter

            OK, agree to disagree.

            OK put in that light what I said could come across as rude, but it isn’t my fault that people put work into balancing a unnecessary system, I personally think it is necessary, but that doesn’t negate the work they put into it, I think it’s dumb but people do use it.

            “Be sure I am not a so reflex mode aficionado. But I think you are judging things like you expected FPS taste in a MGS.”
            I’m going to go on record and say I hate that shit, so if I ever come across like that, it is not what I mean to get across. I mean just the OPPOSITE of that, I hate that slow-mo get out of being spotted free card shit, It is cheap and makes the game to easy, and simply caters to a more western action approach, instead of dealing with the problem you get epic action slow-mo, just the kind of FPS shit I hate, I want to play the game and have those reflexes I don’t want the game played for me and be auto given cheap slow-mo action.

          • Ok, we may not reach a consensus on this question. I was not saying you were responsible for possible wrong milestones on KP road-map, I was just saying that those milestones do not sound wrong (to me at least).
            I really find an added value with this feature. The 2 extremes are the following :
            If reflex was not in the box, you probably have been more happy. If reflex on the other hand, was mandatory, you would have hate it (and me too, BTW). Here, KP split the dif and what is nice (only KP can realize it this way), they managed to pull some screen-gameplay, even romantic added value, look at this example :
            The little stress induced by managing to tranq or neutralize all enemies that spotted you within this slo-mo time-frame, seeing you go to alert because you won’t make it for the last one, and finally sweet Quiet, takin him down for you at the exact limit of alert. I laughed my ass off when it first happened.

            Sorry for being rude with “FPS”, haha, although I used to appreciate them but do not really play them for years now (if not decade). Besides being a Kojima’s “enfant terrible”, I am as well some kind of Carmack one too… 😀

          • Steven Michael Brown

            Touche

      • glitchbomb

        I like using it as a tool for messing with crap in ground zeroes. Playin in the sandbox.

      • Plissken

        I personally like having the reflex mode, but you can always just turn it off. Its just a means of catering to all people. In an unrelated topic, I’m kind of underwhelmed by Keifer’s acting and facial capture. I figure I’m about half way through the game and haven’t seen anything that’s exceptional, so maybe he’ll do something to change my mind. And I thought Kaz was going to sound more vengeful like in the trailers, but there are times on the tapes where he’ll go back to sounding like he did in PW

        • No Place For Hayter

          Well I finished, and I really only noticed facial expressions one time, and it was simply a smirk. There is a lot of stuff Kojima was talking about and bragging about that isn’t in the game. The facial animation is really nice, it just doesn’t show itself off at all well, lol.

  • Kara25

    Man just finished mission 29 and I can say after 70 hours so far in the game my favorite track has to be the skull fights theme that starts when they spot you.. That sci-fi tone in the theme just blows me away!

    • SholidOnline

      Mission 29 and 70 hours? I think I have 50 or so hours, about 70 side ops, and 38 main ops. I do have a pathetic security team however…

      • Ishmael

        72 hours and Misson 20 here. I’m taking my time, it’s the only real way.

    • Yeah the skull fights were awesome. All of them.

      • Kara25

        I would say the female skull snipers… But so far I am disappointed. No Classic mgs build up before boss fights nothing at all so far. I would go one step further and say for me there are no boss battles in phantom pain. I don’t know it just doesn’t feel like the iconic boss characters in previous games… Fox hound dead cell cobra unit etc etc……

  • Donut

    hey guys, while I was re looking at my collectors edition of TPP, I noticed I dont have any of the dlc codes, not the day one or the collectors or the addional online codes, is it somewhere I’m not looking or do I really have to contact konami? this is a North American copy.

    • Josh Houchin

      Did you order online? I preordered through GameStop & mine were emailed to me. Apparently they accidentally shipped them without the codes

      • Donut

        yeah that info would have helped, yes, I ordered online from GameStop too, I didn’t get an email with the codes. Should I perhaps email gamestop then?

        • Mauricio Acosta

          Yes get in contact with them and tell them you got the collectors edition with no codes.

          • Donut

            Now that I think about it… When I preordered Metal Gear Rising, they didn’t email me my code for Gray Fox skin…. till I emailed them and got it.

        • Josh Houchin

          Yeah definitely contact them. I was worried my package wouldn’t arrive on September 1st because I wasn’t given shipping options, but it arrived on the day. I was pretty impressed. They should take care of you. Keep us posted on whether it works out or not!

          • Donut

            yeah, I didnt even get a email saying it was shipped, but I’ll keep you guys posted

          • Josh Houchin

            Might be an issue with your contact info? You should have definitely received both emails, at least based on my experience. But I sent them a message a week or so prior to shipment asking if I would receive the game on the release date, and told them I’d be willing to alter my purchase (pay more) for one-day shipping & never received a response. So idk if their customer support is good or not, or if I just got lucky.

    • SholidOnline

      Yeah, like Josh said, and like I experienced, if you ordered online, you should have an email with codes.

      • Donut

        yeah I ordered online but didn’t receive any codes to my email, and yeah I checked both my spamtrash just in case.

        • glitchbomb

          Whete did you get it? Did you preorder it from somewhere? That’s how gs has my email. Preordered it from them.

    • glitchbomb

      Check your email. I had the same issie with my u.s collectors edition but then I got an email from gamestop.

    • I got my codes. Most get it on the receipt on purchase but online. It should be emailed but you might have to contact Konami for that.

  • J_muse72

    Been 3 days since I unlocked the bandana, I still haven’t taken it off.

    • hunner

      Same. Trying to get the infinite ammo bandana now lol

  • NakedSnake85

    man im on mission 33.. i failed miserably to complete it.. on normal i got a b. the mission is back up back down

  • ThreeMadFrogs

    Seeing Sahelanthropus for the first time was such a great moment. And seeing what it could do, it’s manoeuvrability and speed, truly gave me goosebumps.

  • NakedSnake85

    To be honest despite phantom pain being an awesome game really gorgeous with great depth i can say that its preety bad for a metal gear solid game story wise

    • hunner

      The main problem with the story is false advertising. Same problem MGS 2 had

      • Yeah I was expecting it to be more darker BB who takes down anyone in his path. Full of hate. But he seemed neutral and Kaz was a lil angry.

        • AeroGre

          Yea the trailers showed so much pf the cutscenes and I wasnt expecting the story content to be split up so much, Im on mission 41 now almost time to see that secret ending but I gotta make sure this butterfly trick works first

          • hunner

            Hopefully you don’t get it spoiled for you. I reccomend you stay off the internet until you finish it

          • Tjd

            Butterfly emblem thing does NOT work

        • hunner

          Agree. Kaz was great in this game

      • No Place For Hayter

        The difference being MGS2 intended to sell you false advertising, where as TPP did not intend to do so, TPP does generally follow that path, but is simply cut short and missing a lot of what we have seen and were promised.

    • Volf

      Don’t really have a problem with the game’s story. What bothered me most is the little amount of cutscenes in the game. Probably got used to the long cutscenes in MGS4. I was afraid this would happen after all the complains…

  • Nekkedsnake

    anyone know how much MG ST84 goes for and if there’s a release date? I SO want that!

    • Josh Houchin

      Kotobukiya’s will probably be around $100 USD based on their other releases. I don’t know about the Sentinel one. I checked their site & prices range from $100-$400 depending on the scale. I hope it’s at the lower end but if it’s anywhere near the size of 3A’s Metal Gears plan on being prepared for the worst. That said, I own 3A’s Rex & Ray and I’m very happy with them despite their exorbitant price tag.

  • vic boss

    I finally got it although idk which one I’ll use. What do you guys say? The fox one, snaaaake one or this one ! .

      I actually like how simple the ! is.

      Where are you located? I’m wondering if these are here in the u.s yet.
      I assume so, but I’m not sure.

      • vic boss

        Yeah I’m from Texas , I asked when they would have this issue and they told me they would have it today September 9th, so yeah at least the store I went to had three.

    • solidsnack

      gratz man! I picked this up just for the stickers currently got the Fox logo on my red controller (gotta rep kojima productions!) and snaaaaake on my white.

  • glitchbomb

    It finally came!
    Also…as you can see it gave me an idea….

    Now to get back to the game. I am going sooo slowly and enjoying every minute, but at the same time I want to hurry because I don’t want to miss out on the awesome discussions in here or worse…accidently run I to a spoiler because I’m taking my sweet ass time.

    • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

      Is the steelcase with the poster-artwork from the japanese premium edition? Still waiting on mine..

      • glitchbomb

        The only steel book I received came with the u.s edition.
        The case you might be thinking of looks like the steel book design cover picture in the promotional images, (see below, “now printing”) but it is actually for the special features and is almost like cardboard. Has a way better cover image in my opinion. (It is the one with all the characters on it) the item on the far left is the art book. The far right is the case it all slides into. No steel book with this one. Unless I got ripped off! :

        • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

          Thanks for replying, and yeah, i think it is a way better cover image too, also, i can’t wait to look through that artbook. I’m gonna write Nin-Nin today, and punk them for a delivery date.

  • solidsnack

    I need them all 😐 especially chibi-venom uwu

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah they are all amazing.

      But after finishing the story all I want is the ST-84 now and nothing else.

  • solidsnack

    It’s 5am and I just woke up wanting to play the phantom pain, this game has a bionic grip on me!

  • Wait there’s one thing. What happened to the whole horn growing thing on BB. In the trailers you see it heaps. Didn’t see it once through the story??

    • korruption

      I’ve been too nice and haven’t killed the shit out of everything in sight. Someday though.

      • Oh is it your own choice? So if you kill everything, it gets bigger

        • korruption

          Yup pretty much. Check this out for some ways to add your “Demon Points” http://tinyurl.com/nzlxhek
          It can also be reversed apparently. Also, I don’t know if I’ll be making a nuke or not. It’s nice to have the option though.

          • Thanks dude didn’t even notice it was a system in the game

          • korruption

            I wouldn’t have known either. Whoever figured this out on their own, I grant them their due kudos.

          • Mini gear

            It’s in the guide

          • Gatsu

            Where the heck is my guide :(… Some already have it but mine hasn’t arrived.

          • korruption

            Oh… r-right… I knew that…… *casually walks away*

    • No Place For Hayter

      It does happen once in the story.

      That being said there is a lot we saw from the trailers that isn’t in the game.

      • Tong Ninja

        Horn grows depending on your actions (eg, making a nuke) in the game. 🙂

        It’s called demon points (it’s hidden in the game as opposed to heroism points), but anyway if your demon points increases to a certain point your horn will grow bigger and blood will stay on your face (you can’t wash it off either!). You will be known as Demon Snake! 😀

        It’s reversible though, through positive actions like fultoning animals, etc. haha

        • No Place For Hayter

          Dun worry I know about the demon points system, got my trusty guide with me 🙂 (though it isn’t the most useful thing in the world) I was pointing out that there is a point in the story where the long horn is given to you for one cutscene.

          • Tong Ninja

    Just played mission 29 with quiet, it was quite a good mission I liked it and along with the song that was playing in the background it was so good , it made me feel like I was in a movie , now I must have been one of the lucky ones that didn’t experience that black screen while using quiet

  • Maynard

    This is out of topic but can someone tell me what is this ? http://ingsoc.org/
    and somehow it’s related to KOJIMA http://wccftech.com/hideo-kojimas-next-game-might-be-black-hound-and-is-coming-to-nintendos-nx/

      It’s a troll website made by some people that have too much time, it has strange messages embedded in its source code relating to PT and TPP – as well as other messages, with a countdown timer to 9/11. The word on the street is that a DLC containing cut content and more stuff is coming out that day, as KojiPro (Ken) refused to acknowledge or deny their involvement, and in the phantom episode at the end it quite disturbingly alludes to 9/11. The only thing that makes me slightly raise an eyebrow is the fact that the website was made before the phantom episode was released, meaning that besides pure luck there was no way the creators would be able to draw a connection between TPP and 9/11 before launch – but as I said, it’s just luck. Remember the head transplant? All those crazy coincidences? Remember Survivor 2299? Don’t get your hopes up?

    • Personally doesn’t look like it has anything to do with the phantom pain. Looks more silent hill

      • Gatsu

        I agree, more feels of SH.

            Morse code, someone decode it lol

          • Well-Dressed Snake

            Me and a friend decoded it; “Is there such a thing as an absolute, timeless enemy?”
            This is, of course, what The Boss said in MGS3. But then there are a lot of references to Silent Hills as well, so everybody’s confused about this.

          • Bożydar Mazur

            This quote must be about Konami lmao

      • Definitely…
        Little joke : Imagine this pure perfect world utopia:
        The Kojima’s thing never introduced in the game industry is a special dlc merging TPP (with Omega camp and extra levels) and what’s left of SH ! 😀

    • Javier

      It looks very fanmade. Ignsoc is the rules of language in 1984.

    • Volf

      Wouldn’t be surprised if it actually is Kojima’s work xD

  • Chicken-Snake is just awesome! 😀

  • stocchinet .

    Just finished chapter one, holy shit, what’s next? why everyone is mad for the finale, is kojima the biggest troll ever? We will know in chapter two…

    • Gatsu

      Not everyone.

        Mmm, the mistery….

  • Sockerfri

    Hey, does anyone know how to turn off FOB permanently? Im not using that element of the game, and every time I start my game Im told that Ive lost some people due to not defending my FOB.

    Youre pretty much being bullied into building an FOB because of that damn tutorial that denies you from even closing the iDroid. Several times when Ive started the game and opened up my iDroid, Ive been forced to work through a tutorial for building it, managing it, or something like that. IM NOT INTERESTED. Now I have to turn off the online connection every time Im playing…

    They said it would be optional, but this is not f*ck*ng optional! Forcing someone into using that element is not optional!

    EDIT: Oh, and Im on a PS4, btw.

    • Not sure but it seems that as soon as you purchase water your doomed. I have read somewhere after the agreements that putting under “direct contract” your favorite soldiers will keep them safe from FOB’s ops. At some point the game tried to force me to purchase waters but fortunately, the connection with the server failed at this moment so I seem not annoyed anymore since then.
      I am very interested in FOB’s ops but like you, I want to try that a bit later.

    • In your start menu when you just start up the game you can select go offline which will disconnect you from fob and online based content.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Its completley 100% optional. Turn off your wireless setting on your ps4 before connecting to the game.

    • No Place For Hayter

      It isn’t optional and there is no way to turn it off.

      The only thing you can do is pull open the options menu in the ACC and “disconnect” which will take you offline, and you have to stay offline, because if you ever go back online you will lose everything that has been taken from you, because even if you are offline your base can still get invaded and stolen from and if you ever go back online the game will retroactively take it all from you.

      Agreed it is fricken stupid I don’t want my base invaded I don’t want to be apart of the FOB system and yet I’m forced to.

  • Just a question. Kaz is blind right??

    • SholidOnline

      Well, he seems to find his own way easily, but I dunno.

    • No, it’s probably cataract https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cataract

    • No Place For Hayter

      Probably not, something is up, but the game doesn’t tell us so we will never know.

  • stocchinet .

    don’t know if it’s still spoiler it’s from the very beginning

  • Gatsu

    So does anyone know if enemy player gets alerted right away, when I invade the FOB?
    The guards didnt see me when I invaded, but they did notice when I fultoned one equipment lol and went to “Alert status”.

    I just wonder if enemy player get notified of me invading already then, even if guards haven’t exactly seen me. And then once before I managed to go with perfect stealth near the core, took a while and then enemy appears, I get teleported back to beginning :P… They should’ve removed that teleportation to beginning, I think it’s quite unfair :(.

    • They get notified the second you invade the base. It doesn’t have to even go into alert mode.

      The respawn gives the defender at least some time to catch up to you.

      • Gatsu

        Okay thanks bro :D, it’s nice to know so I try be little faster.

        Yeah it’s good for the defender ;).

      • AeroGre

        Does reflex mode stay on if the guy is offline or ignores the attack cause i played one the other day and it had reflex mode

        • Yeah they start with reflex mode until you get caught. Even if he’s in the game.

      • Unless it’s my FOB being attacked. I’ve been attacked when I was playing and online and got no notification ever :(.

        • If you’re invading someone else’s base then you won’t get a notification. I don’t know why you seem to be having your particular problem.

          • I meant that I was happily doing side ops or main ops (or sitting in ACC and listening to tapes) and when I get back to the chopper I just get an information that I was attacked and “do you want to see the damage”. It happen 2 or 3 times so far, maybe I am just unlucky in that the connection is still kinda wonky but it’s starting to get pretty irritating.

  • Mini gear

    Just s ranked mission 50 first try too ^_^, thank kojima I cancelled my air strike after remembering it breaks my rank

    • Gatsu

      Gratz! I’ve been doing lots of side ops, but need to try do those too :D.

    • I finally S ranked 42 after a solid fucking hour getting my ass handed to me over and over again. I’m taking a break now, it was intense stuff haha

      • Gatsu

        I love the extreme missions because of the challenge, total stealth ftw :D.

    • No Place For Hayter

      First time I tried I died right at the end, and so I came back later with better armor and a better rocket and kicked its ass 🙂

  • Tong Ninja

    MGO will apparently be playable at TGS 2015!

    https://twitter.com/JunkerHQnet/status/641993220369588224

  • Does MGO launch only for console or for PC too in 26[27] days

    • Gatsu

      I think it was confirmed to be a January launch for PC, which is pretty far.

  • AeroGre

    Was anyone else able to do mission 46 while using the butterfly trick? I heard some people had no problem but i kinda wanna make sure

    • Danny Patten

      I don’t even get mission 46 to unlock and I’ve done every mission and side ops so far.

      • AeroGre

        Including mission 42-45?

        • Danny Patten

          I have no missions left to do. I did everything lol

          • Gatsu

            It should appear if do some side ops, few of the extreme ones, listen to cassette tapes and MB visits. A friend of mine in Steam got it unlocked after listening to cassette tapes.

          • AeroGre

            I see, well im trying to get 46 but at the same time blocking quiets story ending
