Looks like players will be able to construct more FOBs in the future

According to an email from Konami customer support (posted by NeoGAF user Alo0oy) we can expect the amount of Forward Operating Bases the player can build in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to increase in the future.

The user bought the largest Mother Base Coin pack, but couldn’t use all of them because the current limit for ‘FOB Waters’ (that allow players to construct additional bases) sits at three. Konami Support stated that ‘this is according to game specifications’, adding: ‘That being said, please note that it is scheduled to be increased although the date is yet to be fixed’.

You can see the full email below:

Email-FOB-increase

Wether additional features will be added as well, or the limit will simply be raised, the email didn’t specify.

  • Solidus

    I’d like to not have an FOB. As fun as it can be to infiltrate other people’s bases, it isn’t fun enough to justify having my own stuff stolen every time I boot up the game.

    • Aren’t they optional to begin with?

      • ObsessedGeorge

        No, the game doesn’t let you use any iDroid features if you don’t make an FOB.

        • Oh. And what if you disconnect from the server? This is recommended anyway, as it makes your iDroid much faster.

          • ObsessedGeorge

            It’s an ingame tutorial that can’t be bypassed. Maybe your iDroid just needs a format! 😛

          • Raven_Sorrow

            That was fixed. At least on ps4. And you can be invaded offline, But the losses only come to your game when you reconnect online.

          • Plissken

            I’ve been playing offline and invaded once. But I did connect to the Internet once, so as you said, it’s just as a tutorial the one time it occurs

          • Jak

            It’s not fixed, it’s improved. The iDroid still takes roughly 2-3x as long to respond, as opposed to the previous 15-20x.

          • Raven_Sorrow

            Ok there are days it is worst than others xD

          • Yeah, still worth it to disconnect.

        • ominonarepus

          hum? What you mean? ’cause until mission 22 the FOB isn’t able

        • DarkWave

          Apparently if you construct an FOB you won’t be invaded yet. Only when you infiltrated your first FOB you get a certain achievement which tells the game you can be invaded.

          • ObsessedGeorge

            A friend of mine has an FOB but he doesn’t play the FOB part of the game. He hasn’t been invaded yet. You may be right.

          • Yeah, same here.

          • I got invaded without invading someone else

          • ominonarepus

            That’s why no one invaded me (thank god) ’cause I build some platforms to push up the staff limit a bit.

        • Nick Wheaton

          That is unless you play offline, it doesn’t make you build an FOB if you disconnect yourself, it’s only when you reconnect that it forces you into building one.

    • Same here

      • Raven_Sorrow

        Please give my previous replies a chance. And you can protect other peoples fobs which gives you huge advantage as defender and in turn people usually help defend yours!

    • IM2PAC

      Same here

      • Raven_Sorrow

        Please refer to my reply! I won’t pay money for extra fobs because i have principles and fuck Konami and micro transactions, but having a fob really helps your experience! And it is not soo easy to invade as one can think: When you are startin and its easy its no really worth it to be invaded, you lose practically nothing! And when its worth it to be invaded you already can have really good defenses!

        • IM2PAC

          I want credit card to stay clean !

          • Raven_Sorrow

            ? I’m sorry didn’t get that. I’m am not saying you should buy more fobs, but the opposite.. The game gives you 1 fob for free. Can’t see a connection with your credit card..

          • IM2PAC

            Is that hard to understand that I don’t want my credit card to be the source profit of these assholes!

          • Ronald Townsend

            is it hard to understand what he’s saying? because you’re the one with the disconnect or straw man argument…

          • IM2PAC

            CALM DOWN

          • Raven_Sorrow

            XD

          • Raven_Sorrow

            And I am saying that I too share the same opinion. But for having a fob you don’t need credit card! I don’t have to given them any money or credit care O.o

          • IM2PAC

            You need to pay them though

          • Raven_Sorrow

            No Mb coins needed brother! I’m talking about the free fob the game gives you! I even personally think that one is more than enough to get the gmp and resources needed to have a lvl 90+ motherbase! To get another one is over powered and unnecessary xD

          • IM2PAC

            Yeah

          • IM2PAC

            Well for getting enough mb coins

        • matttt

          Also, supporting a ton of random people helps as well, most of the people I have are supporting me as well, so I’ve rarely had an invasion where no one was around to defend so far (although as people start playing less there’ll probably be a lot of gaps). It’s really easy to just run up on the invader and air shotgun or riot gun him and then fulton and you get some pretty nice rewards as well.

    • Raven_Sorrow

      Guys no need to worry, the stuff stollen is not that relevant and doesn’t hinder your progress, but really helps! Much more than what you could possibly lose! With just one. Fob you can increase your max staff to 200 per platform! This means more gmp from mercs, more resources from base development, etc etc! Now what can you lose: Some gmp (max I lost was under 100k) and resources that have to be stolen from container which are defendable and I can’t even measure my resources loss because I got them maxed except precious and minor metal which I have no further use but to sell. Trust me and mr. Kojima who said the same: Fobs are designed to win more than to lose! I’m really passionate about this because I have a friend that had the same fear and it is NOT JUSTIFIED!

  • IM2PAC

    How do I delete my save on ps3 ? I wanna start the game again

      • IM2PAC

        Thanks

      • IM2PAC

        But when I delete save data does my pan account still shows the game as a game I played? Ex: I delete save data of a shitty game called call o f duty ghosts does my account still show it as one of the game I played?

  • ShinRyu

    Nope. Still wont pay money for this shit

  • IM2PAC

    I just found an amazing rendition of a song. Not metal gear related but one of the favourite movies of kojima( he said on twitter ) can I post it?

        haha but seriously 2336 unread emails … maybe this person enjoys accumulating them. 🙂

      I love that I finally understand everything about the WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO thing now

      • Tong Ninja

        haha James Horan’s delivery of that line was pure gold and so overdramatic. XD It’s funnier than Kaz’s fiddle line in my opinion. Definitely up there with past MGS wacky quotes/lines.

        If anyone asks me what was one of the most funniest moments in TPP, this would be in the top 3 for sure! 🙂

        • Mr. Sir Shpee

          it’s way funnier than “a damn fiddle” for me. Hamburgers of Kazuhira Miller are absolutely golden so far and are probably the funniest thing in the game, too. Code Talker’s in-depth sacred view on hamburgers is hilarious.

          • Tong Ninja

            haha yes!
            Definitely agree with you on this as well. 🙂

            Wish they had a few more funny tapes/cutscenes in TPP though. haha

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            I broke down and listened to the rest of the Hamburger tapes yesterday after stopping partway through the 3rd one. 10/10 burgers for world peace

        • Tom Brearley-Smith

          Could you argue this is corner than “We’ve managed to avoid drowning” or “Thermalz”?

          • Tong Ninja

            haha yes! 🙂 But those were funny as well.

            “Did you say nerd?”, Ocelot’s meow in MGS3, “A dud !?”, etc. XD

          • Tom Brearley-Smith

            “Not ‘nerd’, NODE”. Jesus, Raiden. Open your ears.

  • Mr.Pony

    I have a question about FOB, if I wanted to play TPP from scratch and erasing my savegame, would that afect my FOB? Or would i have to play it all the way until mission 22 to unlock it again? would hat work as some kind of reset button for FOB?

    • Steven Michael Brown

      Good question

    • Nick Wheaton

      I think I read on gamefaqs that it’s reset to a 1/4 command platform and you have to build it back up again but you keep the waters you purchased or something.

  • IM2PAC

    SPAM DETECTED

  • Javier

    Im finishing my only fob. Tonight the platform will be ready. But I have like 5 platforms in level 3.
    I suck at invading.

    • Gatsu

      I’m not a pro either, I sometimes win if enemy player appear but then sometimes get my ass kicked so easily lol. But I guess practise makes better. 😉

      • Javier

        The first time I killed a player I was happy but then he appeared again and killed me. Yesterday I saw something flying coming to me, I was like wtf, it was the rocket arm, lol, I run and killed the guy. I just go for fuel.

    • War Games Via Live Bullets

      That’s because the FOB system is broken. Unlimited sprint, with armor you’re still a ninja, can carry grenade launcher and a shotgun, unlimited spawns, etc. The FOB’s themselves is not really the best map to play in when it’s you by yourself vs every single thing including another human player. I have 21 successful infiltration(s) and no one has yet to successfully infiltrate my FOB’s “when I’m defending it myself”. As an infiltrator I feel powerless, weak, like, I can’t do anything really. But as defender I feel overpowered, unstoppable, like, I can do anything… Idk, but to me, I personally feel it’s broken.. It just isn’t balanced.

      • Aleezy

        Yeah I agree. So hard when you’re attacking with the online defender. Every time that person just either uses grenade launcher or shotgun and kills me in two shots easy. When I defend I use the tranq pistol and sniper combo so it can last longer. It’s more fun for me even though I lose like 1-2 people before I get a clean headshot and Fulton them.

      • Javier

        I had 2 chances to defend my fob and I couldnt log in. I have win only 5 infiltrations and died a lot.

      • Janeo

        The defender should really just have one life and after he is dead he can just watch the invading player to see what happens, it’s really satisfying when you can sneak past a defender and his men but it is pretty difficult so it would be a lot more interesting if you had just one life as a defender, that way the defender would have to be careful and not just run around like a crazy person who doesn’t fear death.

  • kuaikukia

    I just realized that when you doing training in your supporter FOB, the online supporter player can also join the training and trying defend. Awesome. Sadly I can’t pick to support spesific player on my list.

      You’re pretty good!

  • so, how does the amount of 3 FOBs work in regards to the merc missions?? i mean, how much men you can send out. i don’t know anything about fobs since i played the whole thing offline

    • Nick Wheaton

      You start with being able to only send 2 teams out at once, each FOB you make allows you to send out 2 more teams as long as your combat and other teams that might have to be send out, and you got the vehicles, to do it.

      • oh i see, it’s sad that the merc missions aren’t closer to the PW system :c

    MgsV TPP has the best storytelling in the whole Franchise

    • Robin Besch

      hahahah literally laughed out loud

    • JJBYACH

      This made me laugh more than it should. You know something is clearly wrong when DarkSydePhil of all people gives a more reasonable review of MGSV than pretty much the entire mainstream media.

    • War Games Via Live Bullets

      It might not have the best storytelling, but it isn’t quite as bad as people are making it out to seem, it just wasn’t what was ever expected. And to that end, it had disappointed many fans including myself. But it’s not bad per say. It’s not the “killer” of the franchise especially when the gameplay is the best in the franchise.

      • OcelotSilver

        It wasn’t disappointing . People are simply pissed because their own fan-fiction about the game didn’t get fulfilled . MGSV getting shitted on is exactly how MGS2 got shitted on for not having Solid Snake as the main character in the beginning . It will take years before fans can come to understand the game and appreciate it like MGS2 .

        • No Place For Hayter

          I consider the story of TPP to be complete shit. That being said I had no fan fiction or expectations of the story, I consider it shit for what it is, pure and simply. I love MGS2 and it’s story and themes, but TPP is a far cry from how good that game and its story is. I understand TPP, I just thinks it is complete garbage, my opinion, normally I would leave you to your opinion as well but you generalized people whom don’t like the story very rudely, just because they do not agree with you does not mean they are stupid fan fiction fan boy ass holes, jesus, you sound more angry at people you are making up in your head than I could ever be at the story for TPP. There are people like me whom hate the story in TPP for perfectly logical and good reasons whom are not tainted by their expectations or fan fiction. So please don’t rudely generalize peoples opinions and the people behind those opinions.

          • Janeo

            I don’t think he is trying to say everyone that didn’t like the story is like that, he is just saying that a lot of people are hating the story because they didn’t get what they wanted. I watched a few minutes of one guys video on YouTube about why the game was so disappointing and a few of his arguments were that there shouldn’t even be anymore big boss games because his story ended so well in snake eater, he questioned why ocelot wasn’t a crazy sadist like in past games and he also complained about having to collect heroism points with big boss because he’s meant to be a villain. I just think when you have those type of arguments then you are just trying to hate the game and I’m not sure how many fans are thinking that way but I just don’t see arguments like that to be good reason to hate the game because there is a good answer for all of them. Not saying you hate the story for any reasons like that because I know you’re a huge fan and have far more knowledge of the series but you can’t blame ocelot silver for being a little annoyed at people who are hating the game for stupid reasons. I loved the story of this game and I will always defend it and maybe ocelot silver feels the same way which is why he said those things.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Good point, good point, in which case I would agree, as much as everyone is entitled to their own opinion they should have enough respect for themselves to not be a tard about it or why. Just wanted to clarify so people like me don’t get lumped into that crowd, or that TPP should get a pass because years down the line it should be thought much better of, for MGS2 this happened because people were finally getting over how Kojima trolled them on MGS2 but in the case of TPP there is nothing to get over (well at least for me, some other people might think otherwise, so I highly doubt there will be a delayed appreciation of the game (I know there won’t be for me, because for me there is nothing to get over and nothing to deal with or think about any longer, lol)

          • Janeo

            Not trying to change your mind or anything, I already know that’s impossible since I have seen you comment on so many articles in this site and you’re obviously a pretty big fan so I know you have your reasons for hating it. I have a feelings the delayed appreciation thing will be true for some people, i think a lot of people just decided that they hate the story after seeing the ending and I was pissed off for a few days as well and I still don’t particularly like it but I do appreciate the message. So did you hate the entire game including the gameplay or was it just the story?

          • No Place For Hayter

            If I were to get specific I would say. Didn’t like the story, and the gameplay is underutilized and not as developed as it should be. BUT the gameplay is amazing fun and the one of the best in the series if not the best, just could have used more refinement and expansion of missions and goals, gameplay is awesome. While I highly dislike the story there are some great moments and ideas in there, some really great things which are unfortunately way to over shadowed by the hollow none existent story which has an absolutely terrible end.

          • Janeo

            I did feel like some missions were too quick and simple but there a lot of missions that were done really well. I just started my second play through yesterday so this time I will take my time with every mission and really try to see how many things you can do in them. I didn’t actually start everything again, I still have my base so I’m not sure if I will get any of the cutscenes in between missions like the one with ocelot training the soldiers and there are many important cutscenes where Kaz just tells you to get back to base after you complete a side mission or something so it’s too bad I won’t be able to see everything again. I will do another playthrough where I have to build my base again but I’m not sure when, I only ever did peace walker over three times and then the rest of my play throughs were just replaying main missions.

          • No Place For Hayter

            I wish TPP had a feature to replay cutscenes, I want to see some of them again without having to replay the whole game or having to go to youtube, lol.

          • OcelotSilver

            > hollow none existent story

            Subtle approach to storytelling doesn’t = none existent story . I know this is the latest trend but i have hardly seen anyone that can actually explain why is that .

            I guess mindlessly hating the game is far easier then thinking about it .

          • No Place For Hayter

            Hollow = has a structure but with nothing inside the structure, hence it is hollow. It has a story but what is there is very little, and unfinished.

            I’m not a stupid person please don’t assume whom I am or why I think the way I do, I think the latest trend to to assume who other people are and to trash them because they think differently. As it stands I have my own opinion I don’t even know what the trends are, let alone give a shit enough about them to follow them, I’m not a mindless sheep thank you very much, so don’t go assuming I am.

            The story telling in TPP isn’t subtle at all, there isn’t much of a story at all. Honestly you don’t have to be an asshole about it and assume I’m mindlessly hating the game, though I guess that is easier than actually having to deal with someone who dislikes the game for logical reasons and actually has put A LOT of thought into the game and its story, thinking everyone is a stupid asshole and is mindlessly hating the game is a lot easier than actually admitting there are actual people out there whom have legitimate reasons and thoughts and TPP actually has problems. Honestly that mentality is narrow minded and very rude. I would not chalk your opinion up as “dumb superior fanboy asshole” but I could, but I’m not that rude or narrow minded. Just because you liked the game or its story does not make everyone whom disagrees a mindless hating asshole, Jesus, you are not the center of the universe and your opinion is not the only one, and it is not the right or wrong one I guess brushing me off as stupid is easier than actually discussing a games story which clearly has faults no matter how much you personally like it. So come back if you actually want to discus something, if you still think everyone whom disagrees with you is mindlessly hating the game, that is fine, just let me know so I don’t have to waste my time trying to actually discus anything with you in the future.

          • Plissken

            Honestly, I was expecting a very similar story to Walter White, with Big Boss becoming a very unlikable character and a demon, like what was portrayed in the trailers. What we got, well…I understand what Hideo tried to do, it’s what he wanted since the first Metal Gear, but I was expecting something else

          • OcelotSilver

            It took fans YEARS before they finally understood MGS2 . And it got the exact same reaction towards .

            Story in all MGS games have been the surface type-thing . Kojima has always used the narrative of the game to contextualize the themes he wants to convey. IT blows my mind just how many people are ready to discard the entire game simply because it didn’t have “good” story when MGS has always been about it’s messages , themes and thematics .

            Hell MGS2 isn’t know for having “good” storytelling rather it was mind-blowing in terms of thematics and something that went beyond your typical “story” . Kojima himself stated that he made MGS2 around the hype of MGS1 rather than a specific story .

            MGSV is like MGS2 except it’s far more subtle in it’s approach and isn’t loud-in-your-face type thing . People instead of actually thinking about the game in thematic sense , are harping on plot details .

          • No Place For Hayter

            The themes and thematic sense of Kojimas games is my FAVORITE aspect of his games, and that is why I consider MGS2 to be the best written MGS game, buts lets no excuse the flaws of TPP purely because it has some thematic qualities to it. MGS2 is perfect because it has a solid base which makes sense in addition to the thematic layer of the story, where as TPP doesn’t have a story that makes sense, it has a little thematic layer (not much at all) but that isn’t built off of a proper story which supports it, the base story in the game is very short, unexplored, unfinished, and ultimately hollow. And I’m honestly not going to discuss this further with you. Calling actually dissecting a games plot “harping on plot details” and calling it dumb shows you are not actually interested in looking at the plot or what it has to offer but instead made up any excuse to throw away anything that does not fit with your narrative. Looking at the details has never been a dumb thing, matter of fact the small details in EVERY MSG has ALWAYS made the story and its thematic sense that much greater, and that much well thought out and written, but in TPP the little details are all a broken mess and don’t help the base story or its thematic sense, so suddenly looking at the actually details is a bad thing? Yeah, no, I’m not discussing this further if you seriously think actually looking at the plot details is dumb, because honestly that is doing a serious disservice to TPP, to MGS, and to any story on the face of the planet, “who cares how broken short or shitty your story is, as long as I can see some sort of thematic sense the story is good and anybody who thinks otherwise is clearly not thinking at all” Yeah I’m done here, I’m not wasting anymore of my breath, as you are not even willing to look at or discuss the whole of the story.

          • bunnyfreakz

            LoL you are hated MGSV too hard, you liked MGS2 because Raiden is relevant character in MGS4. We got continuality of character meanwhile with MGSV we got nothing further thus its whats made people dissapointed. We know we got nothing from potential, I must admit thats quite kind sucks as well. But its far from shit, its well crafted but not finished and you are lying if you not have any expectations. Dissapointing is born from expectation even its just slightest.

          • No Place For Hayter

            You are wrong about 2 things.

            1) I hated MGS4 and I also hated Raiden in MGS4, I love Raiden as a character and as the role he plays in MGS2, specifically within MGS2, if I included MGS4 I would dislike MGS2 not like it more, for me MGS4 destroyed everything MGS2 was doing and saying. So no it was not MGS4 that made me like MGS2 or Raiden, I loved all that before MGS4. Don’t assume why I liked things as most of the time you will get it wrong, ask, don’t assume.

            2) I never said I was disappointed, I said I hated and disliked the story. Don’t put words into my mouth. You are right expectations play into being disappointed, but as it stands I’m not disappointed, I simply dislike a large portion of the story, specifically hating the ending.

            Please don’t assume my thoughts or feelings in the future, and also entirely read what i wrote next time, I did not say I was disappointed, and I did not say I liked Raiden or MGS2 because of MGS4, because as it stands I hate MGS4 and Raiden in it, MGS4 destroys MGS2 for me, so no having “continuality” is not why I liked Raiden or MGS2.

        • War Games Via Live Bullets

          To me, like many others, yes, it is disappointing. The fact that the developers sold us on a lie and what we got was nothing of what they said was going to be. I couldn’t really tell you of MGS2 since I was about 10 years old. That was the first Metal Gear I actually played. If you can find me at least 5 people who was really upset and disappointed at MGS2, only to turn around years later and say, “Well, I like the game now after several years later.” Also, appreciating a game is not the same as liking it.

          Someone can respect something of its value, but they don’t have to like it. Maybe this is what you were referring too. To this end, I do appreciate MGSV:TPP. But I don’t believe those same people that were so angry and disappointed would say years later that they like the game now. I think it was MGS4 that made sense of MGS2, and therefor the gaming media said, something like, “All those who are confused and have many questions regarding MGS2 will have their answers in MGS4.” But it would be stupid to say “Well, I like this game that I didn’t like all those years ago, because this OTHER game.” How dumb is that?

        • JJBYACH

          I doubt it will get the same late love MGS2 got. Even though the themes MGSV hamfisted-ly touches upon are more complex than the ones in MGS2, the way they were presented in MGSV were objectively quite awful and poorly implemented, it make the whole story feel uninspired, contrived, unfinished and poorly written when compared to MGS2 or some of the other games. People were mad at MGS2 because they wanted to play as Snake and were lied to, ignoring all of the themes and reasoning behind that choice, whilst MGSV people are more mad not plainly because we were lied to but the reasoning behind that lie wasn’t very good. This is not to say it is a bad game. The gameplay is top notch and will forever be a reference point for all stealth titles moving forward.

      Hahaha something very very similar was said to MGS2 back when it was first release . Now it’s considered to be one of the best …………

      • Ishmael

        by who? Most people you ask always claim mgs1 or mgs3 to be the best. and i agree on that.

  • AeroGre

    lol pls, its hard enough trying to manage this one free FOB.

  • CR7HarisSnake

    Why cant i purchase a third fob? Pls help thx !

  • 223hzy

    I was so surprised that I just found out I’ve already played for 130 hours, though I am still at Ep20 with a 40% completion rate.

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      I’ve played for 42 hours and I’m at 41%, Episode 34 or something. I don’t know if people just restart missions every time they get spotted or what, since I feel like I’ve progressed at a normal pace doing side ops fairly often and then a story binge every so often. Interesting to see the different rates people progress at. Maybe it’s just because I play a pretty aggressive stealth playstyle.

    • César H. Sandoval

      Are you me? well, not exaclty, because I have 38% with 125 hours lol, but yeah I feel ya, the gameplay is that much fun.

    • Janeo

      And I thought I took the game slow, I’m at about 65% after 130 hours and I just started my second playthrough yesterday. It took me 100 hours to finish the main story and then by 120 hours I had finished all the main missions. This game is just meant to be taken slow.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I had all the time in the world (for two weeks) so I played all day making it easier, lol, I got my 100% at about 175 hours, though the last like 20-30% is one hell of a grind with dumb optional objectives and such, lol. (that being said I’m technically not at 100%, I’m at 99% because there is a glitched blueprint I can’t get, but I have done everything else >.<)

      • moto hellogoto

        For Fob security how do I equip my soldiers with bullet proof helmets? I have seen other players with helmets on their soldiers. I have my security set to max for each base and they have armor on their bodies, but no helmets. Someone help me.

        • Raven_Sorrow

          Just develop the last level battle dress and set max level security? I’m suggesting, I haven’t invaded my own fob in a while. First time I saw that was full tranq equipped and I literally flipped a table xD

      • MK_Madness

        I got all blueprints without any problems, you sure you did every combat unit missions?

        • No Place For Hayter

          Glitched blueprint as in, I picked it up but then restarted the mission or checkpoint, and by doing so the game took the blueprint from me but did not put it back into the map for me to pick up. A problem many people have, I’ll just it silently waiting for a patch, lol.

    • Gatsu

      You should be careful here next month. Fans can talk freely of TPP then, spoilers of story etc.

      • 223hzy

        yeah I know, thx

  • Cobra Commander

    Did anyone else find it funny when Huey kills Skullface and shouts “REVENGE”!
    I found it hillarious for some reason.

    P.S. Is tere two different scenes depending on if you choose to shoot Skullface, or run the timer out? (Kinda like after the Quiet fight scene you are given two choices).
    I think I ran the timer out and Venom blew off all Skullface’s parts that him an Miller lost.
    What if I just pulled the trigger mysel? Venom just shoots Skullface in the head?
    Just curious.

  • JJBYACH

    Hamid “Silent Basilisk” Cutscene from mission 6 – Not a lot of people probably have seen this, found it more entertaining than i should have.

    • jack_coban

      Guy reminds me of Sean Eyestone (with a beard).

      • ObsessedGeorge

        I’m wondering why aren’t there any other Kojima Productions staff names in there besides Tan Jackie Ziang. I want to recruit Ludvig Forssell!

        • JohnnyAB

          He’s in it actually lol. In the mission where you have to extract the 3 commanders.. he’s one of them.

    • Janeo

      Oh so that’s who the silent basilisk is, I have been trying to dismiss that guy for a while but he’s locked and I was always wondering why but it must be because he is the guy I got all the way back at episode 6

      • No Place For Hayter

        Just what I was about to say. Why can’t I get ride of this guy? YOU’RE FIRED!

        Also nice codename Kaz, lol. SILENT.

      • ObsessedGeorge

        I’m stuck with our gameplay master Tan Ziang. He just can’t stay in sickbay. Come on man, l’m giving you a pass on work but no. He just goes back to his post. What a workaholic! 🙂

    • IM2PAC

      I skipped it I foundhim at smasei fort though ! Tried to rescue him a at the relay base at the bridge but the snipers grilled my ass

    • IM2PAC

      God I love the leather jacket !!!

    • Javier

      I have saved that guy and didnt see that.

      • Tong Ninja

        I think you have to save him quickly at the Mountain Relay Base before he gets transported to the Smasei Fort to get this cutscene.

        • Javier

          I did that. Maybe ddog fultoned him.

  • James Raskalov

    Can we have the system fixed before we’re given more FOBs to buy?
    I still utterly hate the idea of being invaded while offline, or not being able to turn off said invasions.

    • Janeo

      That’s not broken though, I think it’s just the way it’s meant to be. It encourages you to always make sure your base is well defended for when you won’t be online, sometimes you just have to trust your men.

      • No Place For Hayter

        No, not really, all it does is make sure I’m offline 100% of the time, it is dumb to FORCE optional features onto players, so instead of taking advantage of the system I avoid it like the plague, and that is without going into the mother base coins bullshit.

        • Janeo

          It does have a lot of problems right now, I hate seeing an emergency mission alert and then it telling me it can’t create a session and I hate it when I’m invading a base and it tells me I have been logged out of the server and I lose heroism points for it. Those things haven’t happened too often but it’s really annoying when it does, I do think it’s a really cool mode though and I have spent lots of time on it, even when the other player doesn’t come to defend I still feel like if I die he wins and I hate that feeling so it forces you to really put some effort into winning. I haven’t really payed any attention to the mother base coin things and I would never spend any real money in a game but right now it doesn’t seem like I need to spend real life money to build a good base yet so it hasn’t effected me.

          • Steven Michael Brown

            Finally got fob started and since I did my first invasion before the tutorial (I guess) it glitches and wouldn’t let me in the objective door ( it was red instead of blue)

      • James Raskalov

        Right. Except it is.

        The PC version receives the worst of it, as hackers have made themselves invincible and attack FOBs while completely immortal.
        That, and you can’t turn invasions offline, and taking a break from the game means you can lose everything on that FOB.

    • Gatsu

      You gotta make your defense stronger and have supporter players, who might def while you are away :).

      • Steven Michael Brown

        How do you get supporters?

        • Gatsu

          I’m not really sure. I just noticed few days ago that I had 4 supporters and added them. Then was it in the relationship tab at ACC I could see other players and add them on my list, so I can support them.

          I didn’t notice this before lol. But it’s a shame can’t add friends from Steam friend list etc.

          • Steven Michael Brown

            Yeah it would be nice if it sent to your friends list on psn to defend you

      • James Raskalov

        I just want to be able to turn invasions off.
        And that Konami does something about the hacking in the PC version.

        I don’t think either of those are too much to ask for.

      • James Raskalov

        Also balance the damn system because this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b66etnt-9og is a little insane.

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    I love how people were fighting with me about the negative review scores before they played it and now the exact same people are complaining about how bad they think it is. The irony is so sweet

  • dr penguin

    why would we need more fob’s since you can have 2 and be ok
    plus the fob’s are boring in the first place, there’s nothing to do besides take a shower or punch your crew mates and check on paz.

    • No Place For Hayter

      “plus the fob’s are boring in the first place, there’s nothing to do
      besides take a shower or punch your crew mates and check on paz.” I think you are mistaking FOB’s for your main Mother Base ; )

      • Raven_Sorrow

        OMG XD

      • dr penguin

        OMG YOU CAN TAKE SHOWERS AND PUNCH YOUR CREW MATES AND TALK TO A GIRL THAT DIED wooo
        yea compared to what you can do in the actual game its just a waste of time
        you only go there for showers and maybe for some story bits
        also the place is way to big for what you can actually do

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah, there is no reason for Mother Base to be THAT spread out, I should not have to fast travel inside my base just to get around.

  • BurntFM

    I’m sad to say that this has been Metal Gear Informer for quite some time now. Nyxus and Gatsu need to increase staff morale before you go in the red.

    • We’re currently selling extra biological materiel to get us out of it. Unfortunately, like all Metal Gear Solid releases things can heat up between all fans of the series. I think the comment section has slowly been getting more positive again haha. Sometimes it just sucks to read redundant / negative comments. I’m not against opinions at all, but sometimes people get way too mad about what they expected and rant. But it’s a phase… it’ll all go back to zero…

      • BurntFM

        “So long as Zero remains…1 will eventually grow to 100 again.” And for that reason we have to send Zero back to nothing.

      I’ll respect everyone’s opinions and try not to argue too much against a hateful comment, because it’s hard to change minds. It just can be tough to see the rage if I feel the opposite.

      I believe people will change their feelings when months/years pass ;D. It takes time and seen that to happen with a few games.

        D-Day is incoming. Each post is gonna filled with essays on how much people hate this game.

        • Raven_Sorrow

          Or love.. Personally my list of pros & cons is really positive. And if the good outweights the bad why should I focus on the bad? Point is, imma essay the love outta this game 😉

      • Janeo

        Not really any point trying to argue with people who have already made up their mind, it will just be arguments that go back and forth with no end lol. I am looking forward to seeing some people give reasons as to why they hate the story though, I have seen a few videos on YouTube about it but it never feels like it’s coming from a really big fan so hopefully the people that hate it here at least have better arguments than some of the ones I have seen and I’m sure they will. It’s just too bad that a lot of people didn’t enjoy the story, I thought it was great and deep and I enjoyed the way it was told, plus it felt so metal gear to me, can’t really see any other games having a storyline like this.

    • Robin Besch

      how do you get that cutscene i somehow missed it in my playthrough

      • Tong Ninja

        Get your GMP into negative values (overspend on developing equipment or platforms), then return to Motherbase. 🙂

        Yeah, there are several cutscenes you can actually miss if you don’t return to Motherbase often or fulfil certain conditions.

          • Tong Ninja

            No problems. 🙂

            You can easily get your GMP back into positive values by selling your resources (process materials, mortars, vehicles, etc.)

          • Robin Besch

            haha ya i know. im stingy as hell with my precious metal though. i horded over 30k so far and only sell some if its absolutely necessary xD

        • stocchinet .

          It’s there any way to trigger the “Quiet sniping the cigar” scene? i haven’t seen that

          • Tong Ninja

            When you play TPP on your birthday and return to Mother Base, you will get this cutscene. BUT you need to have recruited Quiet before hand. 🙂

            Basically when you play TPP and you return to Mother Base you will get two cutscenes:
            1. Birthday song/cake from Ocelot, Kaz, Huey, soldiers, etc.

            2. After the first cutscene has played, you will get one with Quiet lighting your cigar with her sniper rifle. 🙂

          • stocchinet .

            uh, i think i’m late for the second one 🙁

          • Tong Ninja

            There’s always next year …. or you can replay the prologue and change your date of birth. 🙂 It should work I think.

      Miller maxi buns ftw and dark dialogue is the best equation ever

    • Robin Besch

      well your right but imo the fact that this game has Big Boss and Ocelot in it and kaz being the best character tells that something really went wrong there

      • hunner

        Big Boss and Ocelot were pretty dull imo. Miller and Skull Face stole the show

        • Robin Besch

          until skull face went full owl mode that is…

          • hunner

            I actually liked that quote . Skull Face feels like a traditional Metal Gear villain to me. He looks cool, has a cool voice, cheesy dialogue, a ridiculous plan, and a ton of pointless hand gestures lol

      • Janeo

        I don’t think so, Kaz was always a really cool character and ever since peace walker I have been wondering whether he’s my favourite metal gear character and I think this game sealed

        • Robin Besch

          i do agree with you about kaz and big boss and their friendship. a good guy friendship is the best there is! but sorry i really think most of the characters in TPP were not just boring it felt like the game would have been the same without them. maybe its just that mgs 1-4 spoiled me too much and my expectations for V condemned me to being disappointed…

        • Nick Wheaton

          Yeah but in Peace Walker S ranking missions was ridiculous, you had to get absolutely no kills or alerts and you had to be very fast, and some missions weren’t even possible to S rank them unless you had the entire layout and where the guards are and where they’re looking memorized otherwise slowing down to take care of them took just a second too long and you get no S rank.

          No rewards for S ranks in TPP makes sense as S ranks are a lot easier to obtain.
