  • Stealth camo with a visible shield on his back :v

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      Players be like: “Whose shield is this?” – right before getting CQC’d.

  • Kol Leqejza

    srsly, that’s an awesome update! although too late for most players but nonetheless great!

  • Jav

    I’m still waiting an update for helicopter travels in the field.

    The new items are coming one by one week after week, or maybe after 2 weeks. That’s not good. They will be really expensive.

  • SholidOnline

    The last time I played, over 100 soldiers were gone, and the game told me I don’t play enough. That’s when I decided to try out Dark Souls. Metal Gear will never be the same.

    • Cka Stu

      Sounds like the game is right to me… 😉

  • Leguywhodrownedquiet

    Rip Isao Tomita 🙁

  • kirtanloorii

    I look forward to that non-lethal machine gun.

    • That Fulton launcher should come in handy as well.

      • 223hzy

        Best thing in Peace Walker IMO

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      Hopefully it’s easy to develop. Seems like the revolver will be pretty easy at a level 3 rating. I’d love to suppress the NL machine gun and rain rubber hell on my foes.

      • kirtanloorii

        I think it would be perfect for those moments when you get caught by a bunch of guards (either SP or FOB) and you want to fight them off without killing anyone. I just can’t figure out why it took them nearly nine months to think of this.

        • Mr. Sir Shpee

          Yeah, pretty much. It’ll be fun to screw around with nonetheless. We needed more nonlethal assault weapons.

  • fuck yes

  • Solidus

    Fulton cannon is baaack! Peace walker memories

  • Mr.Pony

    This is a good update, not bad Konami, not bad at all.

  • proceeder

    Ocelot’s gun without dual wield?! Pssst, not impressed.

  • Full Options

    *Alert* – MGSV TPP just received a Famitsu Award !
    Don’t know which one, my japanese is too weak…
    Made a screen capture, looks like Konami is receiving it and so booooooo’d on the streams comments… xD

  • proceeder

    The riot LMG is not in the game. I’m developing a non-lethal RPG but it doesn’t clarify that it shoots Fultons…

  • Steven Chethuan

    Can anyone here tell me why since May 10th I’m still not seeing the non lethal AAM machine gun the Fulton warhead rocket launcher Dummy Decoy FOM emitter or the Battery Vaporizer UAV Drone listed anywhere the development list even though it’s been over a month since the update?

    • In Belfast

      Did you get them yet?
