Beware: several new MGSV:TPP bugs reported

There are reports of several new Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain bugs with the ability to render your save file unplayable. The first one is present on all platforms and can be triggered by Mother Base construction. Check out the full details below.

MGSV-TPP-Mother-Base-Bug

The second one affects only PlayStation 4 users, and occurs when multiple SEN accounts are used on the same console.

Thirdly, there’s a bug that occurs when you defend your FOB during Mission 43, that corrupts your save after the FOB mission is over. This happens on all platforms.

Be aware of these bugs when playing the game!

    That’s the crap with open world game, they always come with bugs….

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Hahaha, l played, The Witcher 3 since day one. Grave mistake. Full of missing deatures, bugs, performance issues. TPP’s launch shows a well developed game.

    • Lewis

      Completed the game 2 times. Not a single bug.

      • César H. Sandoval

        You were lucky.

        I found my share of them on PS3, not gamebreaking ones, but they are clearly there, stuff like getting imprisoned in Quiet’s cell after her showe scene, the game crashing after visiting my FOB the first time, features activating without fullfilling the requeriments and tutorials repeating themselves after already clearing them.

        • Lewis

          Oh, PS3. Now I see.

          • César H. Sandoval

            The most terrible bugs, like the Quiet save corruption one were reported by Konami on all consoles and PC, thou.

          • Lewis

            Man, that’s unfortunate for you. Seems I was all 200 hours lucky.

  • kirtanloorii

    Well, at least Konami is open about it and they are communicating with people. Unlike WB with Batman AK.

    • Shalashaska

      lol what would WB say for AK ? “Wait wait people.. Bug : game is crashing everywhere.
      Solution : Dont play till we understand how we fix this”

  • Jack Moon

    There’s also a bug in chapter 2 where you have to replay chapter 1 😉

    • BurntFM

      a chapter 3 patch could fix that. If not fix it maybe be a workaround LOL

    • Diamond_Ocelot

      I think there’s also another one in chapter 2 where the ending mission just pops out of nowhere.

      • César H. Sandoval

        And it’s just the same prologue again…

        • Alex Lopez Manriquez

          half prologe. worst than nothing .I love the game but is a neverending game I keep playing looking for something I know is not there

          • Alex Lopez Manriquez

            even when. Eli escape with my stiff, I think the logic that the FINAL HARDCORE boss battle will be the Eli controled sehalantropus . and I hear the DNA result and scream “bullshit” then mission 46 corrects me. and skullface what a waste of villain had so much potential

      • ObsessedGeorge

        I was like, so out of place and lame. Where’s Sahelanthropus?

        • Alex

          Take out the “he” syllable from Sahelanthropus and we would’ve had a much better sounding Salanthropus threat.

          • Shalashaska

            I actually like that syllable there.

      • Fábio Júlio Martins

        I think the whole story needs a fix. That revelation after mission 46 makes me hate the whole game. At least there’s a lot of room for a sequel

        • Shalashaska

          There is room for a sequel is exactly why i hate it -_-
          I mean.. Cool we get to play as big boss.. but wth man.. what exactly was snake doing during this time.. THAT is what i wanted to know.. Oh well.. atleast the gameplay was good. and the second chapter was amazing. so all in all.. AMAZING game but would have liked for it to just END rather than open up a WHOLE AREA for a new game for Konami. Im not gonna buy a MGS that Kojima hasnt made 😛

          • Fábio Júlio Martins

            I am pretty sure Konamy forced Kojima to leave room for DLC and for a sequel…otherwise how is that Eli’s conclusion is missing? Anyway, I would’t mind a sequel made by Kojima where we would play with the real Big Boss and recrutit Gray Fox and Mantis for Foxhound and build Outer Heaven

      • Jack Moon

        I actually believed it was a bug at first lol. After I heard about the bug that messes with the game’s progress when using Quiet on a certain mission I thought for sure that it had to be a bug. Then I played through all of those bs replay missions (I’m looking at you Code Talker and Metallic Archaea) and randomly this mission called Truth: The Man who Sold The World shows up. So I play through it and find out about the big reveal then watch the credits roll afterwards. All the while I’m thinking to myself, this isn’t real, this has to be just a bad bug. Eventually I realized it wasn’t a bug…and my heart sank.

        • Shalashaska

          With the amount of hints to it in the first mission of the game (the biggest hint to me was when the doctor puts together the pictures.. I immediately thought that was VERY fishy… there was another person not visible and i went “No, please dont tell me that that is me in the end”), I immediately realized my fears was coming true of you not playing as Snake. I was like “truth?” .. .”NO NO NO KOJIMA NO YOU FREAKING DIDNT JUST DO ANOTHER RAIDEN”

          • insanetrasher

            Thats “fan-service” right, we got served with a new Raiden 🙂 !

          • Diego Guedes

            The greatest hint so far was staring at us for the whole game. If you have the chance, zoom in on your reflection in the acc’s chopper window pressing R3.
            I’m not sure, but I think this only works when it’s dark. Can’t see the reflection during the day.

    • Hahaha.

    • Shalashaska

      So annoying. -_- I want mission 51 :'( WHERE IS MISSION 51 DAMMIT!!!

  • Gatsu

    Well lucky me, haven’t encountered any major bugs yet :).

    Except maybe one, which isn’t game breaking imo if is a bug. I just finished C2W again while trying to complete the missions tasks. I destroyed the communication equipment inside the house, but the objective didn’t get completion :(. It still stayed 5/6 hmm… I wonder if this was one of the previous bugs lol, don’t remember :D.

    • Nick Wheaton

      Did you destroy the dishes before destroying the radio? You have to destroy the radio only for that task to complete.

      • Gatsu

        Crap, I was thinking it might be like that. Yeah I destroyed the dishes first and then the radio lol xD. Oh darn it, well gotta do it tomorrow again . Thanks!

        • Nick Wheaton

          Anytime. Yeah that got me too until I decided to throw caution and stealth to the wind and just bring a grenade launcher and machine gun with me and one of the grenades I fired in a random direction destroyed the radio and the task completed.

        • ObsessedGeorge

          Replay it and destroy the radio with the water pistol. 🙂

    • Mr.Pony

      Lucky you, my conch shell disappeared and i couldn’t develop the “special” fulton, had to be really creative for pass that one, luckily it was fixed.

  • Fredy Carius

    I’m hoping my save crashes so i have an excuse to start it all over and… SPOILERS

    • Gatsu

      Np, just have to add enough dots and the text hides below. Anyway, it’s almost time when don’t need to hide spoilers so its okey.

      Yeah, I want to start again because of the same reason T__T. But I am saving my Japanese playthrough for that. Just need to get some more achievements before doing it or 100% if it won’t take too long.

      • Shalashaska

        I just keeping playing towards 100% hoping I can somehow get her back :'(
        People dont realize because she is a loud buddy in the beginning (sniper) BUT SHE IS AMAZING for distractions and to take out ALOT of enemies while you go about in the base stealing stuff. All the guards will look to her sniping spot and be busy with her while you can go behind them and take them out. Give her a tranq sniper and shell leave bodies to just fulton 😀 In my opinion, she is most essential in both stealth and combat, making her the best buddy. I do love DDog though.
        As for Dwalker.. I barely use him.. too high on the GMP requirements.. gonna farm gmp then use him… but he has no auto stun/kill enemies to help me out so i guess he still isnt as effective as she is.

  • Big Boss

    Thank god I didn’t have any bugs, one trophy until I platinum it.

    • Ardens Anima

      Of course You wouldn’t.
      You’re bloody Big Boss.

  • Alex Lopez Manriquez

    here´s another bug ; lack of Psycho mantis epic 4th wall breaking, videogame history making boss fight. sorry but. who´s with me?

  • korruption

    Wonder if they’ll lift the veil and Kojima will eventually give us the actual MGS5? =(

    • Dr. Miles Manners

      This is MGSV. Kojima won’t make anything afterwards and the story pretty much wraps up with the “Kingdom of the Flies” blu-ray disk.

      • korruption

        That was a rhetorical question, sir.

  • Alex

    I had a weird, partially completed animal conservation platform once, and accidentally ran into the ocean lol. It wasn’t game breaking or anything though.

    • Korbin Yahraes

      Same. I thought the platform might just be invisible and walked into the ocean.

  • TheManWhoSoldTheWorld

    At least this is Kojima’s last.

  • Gray Lion

    The only bug I found so far had to do with the phantom cigar. Sometimes if I have one of the submenus open when the bar empties the phantom cigar remains active as long as I don´t quit the submenu. In other words, you can fast-forward time indefinitely. But that only happened to me three times…

  • James Raskalov

    I am experiencing a bug where Quiet can’t mark any guards. Even when I order her to scout a base.

  • John Rhogan

    Good thing I haven’t gotten TPP yet. Thanks, Obama!!

  • FOX

    İ wonder where will the story go without kojima in next mgs. Any gap in Solid Snake’s story?

  • Superb online work from house and make five thousand dollars a month. I made seven thousand dollars a month from the comfort of my house*

    Get more details by my disqus profile

  • mason2910

    I have a bug which does not let me get an S-Rank in my mission screen for C2W. It just appears as a ‘–‘

  • Kol Leqejza

    i’ve got 2 bugs preventing me from getting 100% in the game… C2W- & blueprintbug. would like to know if konami’s working on it…

  • Solid PhoeniX

    Why is MGSV Incomplete? the game couldve had NPC’s to provide info or even new missions. We Couldve had more reasons to go back to motherbase and Actually salute or train with our soldiers . . . Motherbase is Huge!! but almost nothing to do there. I wanted more cutscenes as well . . I wanted to go inside motherbase and take a proper shower. . also, why was Mission 51 cut? . . where Big Boss goes after Eli? . . you can see the incomplete cutscenes of that Mission on Youtube. Its such a shame. . . Becoz this game is amazing! and could’ve been game of the Century. . . IMO

    • Diego Guedes

      That’s my point exactly, bro. It’s an excellent game, but it could have been even greater. Say what you want about MGS4, but that game wasn’t unfinished and did not leave plot holes. Something that annoys me are the locked doors everywhere. Prop houses and stuff like that. They are there just to decorate and make the map not seem barren and bland. Afghanistan is perfect, but the African setting is a bit too empty for my taste. I wish there were more locations like Lufwa Valley and the mansion (which has too many locked doors and that is crap IMO).
      I wish there were more cutscenes too. Actually, it’d have been awesome if Kojima chose vhs instead of cassete tapes to satiate the fans need of more story hehe.
      About the NPC’s, I agree almost completely. I’m not sure civilians roaming around the environment would be something plausible, but they could’ve explored the POW’s more. A prisoner you save needs his wife/husband rescued and asks you to help them, etc. Smaller stories, Witcher 3 style,, would’ve been awesome. The side ops have no story whatsoever. It does not seem like a big deal, but when you do a lot of them in sequence, it gets tiresome.

  • Lightning533

    i just got the bug that corrupts my save file on mission 43 after defending my FOB. should’ve just let my security team handle it…….

  • Sara

    I would also report bug in missions 14 and 24.Objectives Extract a material container/containers.Plz fix that ‘cuz I can get Grand Master Certificate (Elite) and probably some other ppl.I tried 15 times to get those containers/container and it won’t mark them as objective.

  • Guys I need help. I did all mission tasks but I didn’t get the trophy.
    Anyone knows why?

  • seagull90

    I have a new one:
    After mission 20(?), where i just caught and extracted the “Major”, i’m automatically returned to mother base where there’s a cut-scene that automatically begins with Huey showing new sketches of a customizable “tank” – BOTTOM LINE: THIS MOVIE SCENE REPEATS ITSELF AND DOESNT LET ME PROGRESS WITH THE GAME. No matter what i do, it (this cut-scene) always repeats after i watchskip it (then press space to continue, then it repeats).

    Please help! what to dohow to fix?
