MGSV: The Phantom Pain receives update that fixes the Quiet / sava data glitch

A few days ago we learned that a certain glitch could corrupt your save file if you took Quiet with you as a buddy on specific missions. Fortunately, this has now been fixed, as reported by the official Metal Gear Twitter account:

MGSV-Quiet-Save-Glitch-Fixed

MGSV-Server-Issues

MGSV-Quiet-Save-Glitch-Fixed-2

Here is the full changelog for version 1.03 of the game on PlayStation 4:

MGSV-TPP-PS4-Patch-Version-1.03

At the moment of publishing this article the update is out for PS4 and PC, and is on its way for other platforms as well.

  • Ravenous

    Very very good news, I’m on my second playthrough now due to a certain string of missions later in the game, and forgot to not use Quiet in mission 29, but I got lucky this time too 🙂

    Any of you guys actually had this bug ruin your games?

  • Finally.. but frankly I think other problem engrossing.. they says; ”we continue to into look server issues.” What is that server issues exactly? Do you know someone?

    • MK_Madness

      When you do FOB mission, it will disconnect you randomly you will lose the match and alot of money.

      • Danny Patten

        Or if you wanna defend and it failed to create the session! Fun times

        • When it happens to me and I look at my defense log after, it shows one of my supporters defending my base already.That’s why it says unable to connect. People out there doing God’s work.

  • luvs2spluug3

    i hope they fix the servers soon, i have been slowing down my progression to a snails pace because i want to import my GZ save before i beat the game. like just tonight i kept playing the same mission over and over again…already had S rank i just wan’t to not get engrossed and plow through the game before i get my GZ save.

    • Danny Patten

      How deep are you into the game yet? I can tell you that if you are past 90hours+ in the game you probably don’t need the Soldiers you get and the fancy shizzle is not sooooooooo great tbh. So you can Netflix & Chill.

      • luvs2spluug3

        it’s not about needing them, im sure i have no need for them…i just WANT them! also kojima…i mean it’s kpjima

        • Danny Patten

          I understand. Well, the save data worked fine for me. Just did it last week.

  • glitchbomb

    This is weird…maybe a few hours ago right after a nearly perfect finish of a mission (I think it is called ‘back up back down”) I hopped into my chopper and as it went to the loading screen suddenly an update icon popped up in the upper left corner saying there was a mgsv update to install then my screen went black. Then I saw the Konami logo and panicked. Sure enough it forced the update and it did not save. Luckily it’s not completely corrupted. I just have to do that last mission all over again…for the fifth time. -.-

    • “Back up back down” is freaking tough to complete with all the tasks -_-

      • Shalashaska

        i retried that mission countless times. Why ? Because I was stupid and kept riding my horse or car of sorta high cliffs and dying. Again and again and again.

  • Golgari

    That’s great. Servers should be fixed. FOB is awesome.

    • Well-Dressed Snake

      It’s awesome until a rocket shotgun, a Serval, or that homing multirocket thing comes into play, yeah.

  • Danny Patten

    Yesterday was a day where I thought a lot about the MGS franchise.
    I have realized that back when the PSOne launched and I got my hands on 1 that my first game actually was Metal Gear Solid. And ever since I was hooked. Looking back I anticipated every MGS game with much hype, such wow and great feels.

    Then I started thinking about the latest installment. It has its highs, it has its lows.
    But then it somehow struck me.

    The Metal Gear franchise is to gaming what Darker than Black is to Anime.
    The story is essentially the same.
    Both have a theme about the fear of Japan and Atomic Bombs.
    Both have always the “great” weapon.
    Both have Phantoms.
    Both have Les Enfant Terrible.
    Both have soooooo many Secret Organizations and Intelligence Organizations that you lose track about what who did to whom.
    Both have a underlying love story that just doesn’t work out for the protagonists.
    Both have a protagonist who gets lost at the end, in MGS even dies.

    Both have situations that make me shed manly tears.

    Looking back at the whole story of MGS and especially TPP, I just can’t think of a better ending.
    Sure there is this whole Mission 51 debate but no, just think about it.
    The ending of TPP describes the start of MGS as a whole.

    • glitchbomb

      Hush your ending talk! Lol , I am just getting to africa! 😛
      I have been wanting to get into a new anime though. Any other anime that you could compare it to?

      • Danny Patten

        Darker than Black just comes to mind because the story is really similar.
        Both are told with a different settings but the foundation is the same.
        There is no other anime that gets so close to MGS than DtB.

        And if you haven’t watched Darker than Black yet, I’d encourage you to do so.
        The order you should watch it is Season 1 => OVA => Season 2.

        But if you wanna know some really good animes I can recommend those:
        *Tokyo Ghoul
        *Psycho Pass
        *Mushi-shi (has some really beautiful scenery)
        *GATE (still airing)
        *Deadman Wonderland
        *One Outs (not your everyday Sport Anime)

        • glitchbomb

          Thnx!

    • JUST wanna ask you a Q i just got done with MM 47 i think it was now there is one person that leaves dose this person com back into the game or more like they come back case i beat the game? plz tell me if you can…..

      • Danny Patten

        To answer your question I’ll put a SPOILER WARNING right here!






















        Yes, one person leaves and there are some saying that you can get her back for old missions. Not in a sense like this person will be back. No. After that certain mission story wise that person is gone. Now I read in the guide that this person would be available for older missions but I haven’t figured out yet how to do that.

        • SPOILER WARNING










































          Thanks man hit me up if u find out how to get her back she was the best buddy for me… so sad 🙁

          • korruption

            MORE SPOILER





















            I haven’t even tried the “A Quiet Exit” mission yet and I have my current data backed up on a USB drive. I just don’t wanna lose her. =(

    • Oh I love darker than black

  • hunner

    Is quiet useful in these missions?

    • Daburcor

      She certainly is in 29.

    • Danny Patten

      Since it is fixed, you can try yourself xD
      I found her to be most useful with Skull fights. Give her the Brennan Rifle and let her go nuts.

    • Ravenous

      In my attempts she’s been yanked out of the fire by Miller everytime because I ran out of ammo for my rocket-launcher and had to wait for an ammo-drop, but with the .50 cal rifle she does rip them apart pretty effectively if you can keep those bastards’ attention on yourself 🙂

      My tip for this fight is to leave the rocketlaunchers and grenadelaunchers in the chopper, and just bring a machinegun instead, it works just as well or maybe even better than the launchers I’ve tested on them 😛

      • korruption

        I think so, but haven’t really noticed her doing a whole lot. Then again, I spent the whole time running and firing like hell. XD

      • AeroGre

        Lol Its funny how he hates Quiet and whenever she’s really low health Miller fultons her and says Boss, dont let your buddies die.

  • Well-Dressed Snake

    Didn’t fix the hilariously broken weapon customization, though. Not that I mind!

    • whats that?!

    • JC denton

      I’m glad i still haven’t met anyone with glitched weapons on FOB.

      • Well-Dressed Snake

        I made a rocket shotgun and a grenade shotgun because I got bored. It’s pretty hilarious to snipe people with 100% ineffective rocket pellets because of damage dropoff. Knockdown for days!

    • Shalashaska

      haha ok its broken? please explain… i havent tried much of it

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        this should explain everything https://youtu.be/gCzAVaqWaBs

      • Well-Dressed Snake

        On PC you can literally make rocket shotguns that instakill basically everything.

      • Well-Dressed Snake

        Oh, and they work in FOB mode.

  • RocketoPunch

    how about fixing the Story -_- (chapter 3 – peace)

    • I have a feeling that it’s gonna be a DLC

      • wen do you think will get it or heir sum thing about it case if it was cut from the game that means it must be all done rite?!

        • If they want to bring it out, they’ll announce it soon I think

      • MichaelPayneV

        I have the worse feeling that MGSV was actually a 5 Chapters Game, and that we only got 1 and a Half!

      • JJBYACH

        I’m 100% sure there won’t be any story DLC, but I want to believe…

    • Shalashaska

      This wasnt even an issue on the x360… I played those missions with Quiet.
      But ep. 51.. man i really wish they work on that…its like there is no reason to keep playing now like there was in PW with the VAST amount of crazy side ops..
      Im done and there my motherbase lvls are around 35 :/

      • RocketoPunch

        Im not even talking about the Bug. There was a Chapter 3 in the game which they cut out. Im done with these guys. They lied to us. I can undersand why Konami is angry, if Kojima takes that Long for a game and couldn´t even finish it.

        • Boldizar

          That is a decent compromise. You know sure as hell no Kojima authorized expansion is coming. It is pretty clear both he and Konami are at fault. It almost seems as if there may not be a script.

          • RocketoPunch

            One thing bothers me though. Why wouldKojima tease us with stuff like the unfinished Mission 51? If they were smart, they´d just hide it.

          • Boldizar

            Because it is never going to be finished. It was already a glaring omission, not to mention what ever else had not been developed yet. Anything that has chapters is going to have more than 3 so who knows exactly how much we are not getting. They through it on the disc so people could see it I guess.

        • JJBYACH

          For starters the ambition was already sky high. Designing a linear stealth game is hell in virtually every aspect, from AI pathfinding to the sound and game design – so making a true open world one is usually out of the question. Look at games like Assassins Creed and Far Cry, they logically create the illusion of open word stealth by relegating small sections of the map (outposts) with separate pre scripted AI and game design tailored for multiple playstyles. So in MGSV Kojima attempted to do the impossible – he tried to create a stealth game where the design encompasses the entire game world whilst allowing for other playstyles. Look at it this way: Every goddamn square inch of the map must be continually tested and re built over and over to achieve this vision, the game design must allow for the player regardless of location a place to hide and sneak past enemies – next time you play the game, study the terrain, how there may be a little mound, rock or general uneven terrain to allow for a place to hide, it’s really incredible when you notice it. So the technicality of this vision alone proved to get the better Kojima as that clearly took up the most time to get right. I’m personally surprised that the game even has a chapter 2 and a second map. Nevertheless technically this game shouldn’t really exist, as it does the seemingly impossible, so even though it is an explanation to why the games story is not what some people expected, it isn’t an excuse.

    Been avoiding this comments section for a while now. I know I’m a bit late to the party, but hey I’m so happy I can finally get my hands on this gem!!

    • glitchbomb

      Welcome back!

    • Gatsu

      Welcome back dear brother =)! Better late than never, enjoy it! <3

      Better late than never, you know?

      Thanks guys!! I’m waiting till midnight here when everyone’s asleep before I descend into madness haha.

  • Gatsu

    Glad to hear this, thx for the info Nyx!

  • AeroGre

    Im pretty sure some people would like a second patch involving that other problem with Quiet.

  • Shalashaska

    Just got to the true ending and realized that every doubt of mine that i had in the initial 40 minutes of the game came true. I LOVED the experience but that true ending man.. why. Why did kojima need to end it like the way he did knowing it was his last MGS game.
    Man I loved this game so much but I really wish i hadnt seen that ending… I just really dont feel like playing anymore after knowing the truth.
    Sheeshhh.. and episode 51… seriously… why why why… they could have taken 2-3 weeks extra man.. that mission looks absolutely amazing like the Monster hunter missions in PW :/

    • Boldizar

      There was absolutely no reason for the twist. I only part about it I like is the awesome Venom Snake character design. I think the model looks cool, but that isn’t a good enough reason.

      • Shalashaska

        Unless he wants to make another game focusing on the other .. ahem.

        • Boldizar

          Shit, he couldn’t even pull one game off.

    • stocchinet .

      To me it was fuckin’ awesome, expecially after the last cassette tapes

      • Shalashaska

        You mean the secret conversations, yea ?
        Yea that was a nice addition to understand everything.
        I Loved the game, Disappointed that i didnt play as AHEM but glad how it all pans out because in the end of the day, you still play as BIG BOSS.

        • stocchinet .

          I guess you got the point

  • Eliquid-Snake

    First hour of TPP is hands down the best opening in a video game!!!

  • Mr. Sir Shpee
  • Nekkedsnake

    I’m glad that at least we fans are constantly updated with patches for any issues with our game. except of course for the server issues. but at least we were issued patches for the other cons in a timely manner.

  • Maik O’Bannon

    Hey guys does the fix work if you already used quiet for those missions? I just completed goddamn mission 42 (with quiet as buddy) and no new main missions are available.
    I’ve completed all previous main missions,and many side ops..
    So far this game is unbelievably beautiful anyway 🙂

    • Maik O’Bannon

      Well I think I’m gonna restart the game from the beginning…more pain, sweeter revenge!

      • J.Wayne

        Hey, hope you get this before you restart the whole game.

        I used quiet as well and could not progress. Restarting and finishing mission 40 with a motherbase soldier fixed it. Good luck

        • Maik O’Bannon

          Thanks very much!!!
          But I’m afraid it’s late,I already restarted the game,which is fun anyway because I’m playing the missions way different than I did the first time.
          Thanks again,I hope your comment helps somebody else!!!
