Konami will be taking measures against unfair nuclear activity in MGSVTPP

Today Konami has released new numbers showing the current amount of nukes owned on each platform. Aside from that, they also stated they will be taking measures against ‘unfair ways of increasing nuclear activity via FOB’, meaning people who’ve been using cheats to build their nukes. This is good news as it made it even harder to achieve nuclear abolition with those cheaters taking disadvantage of the system.

As for the current nuclear weapons count, there was a decrease on PS3, PS4 and Xbox 360, and an increase on Xbox One and Steam. Steam in particular seems to be suffering the most from cheaters, explaining the exceptionally large nuke count on that platform.

A few days ago Konami released graphs showing the nuke count on each platform during the first half of this month, you can check those out here.

    Awesome. Konami showing its dedication to MGSV players and MG franchise.

  • NickTheCage

    Didn’t even know people used cheats to increase their nukes. Guess that explains why Steam nearly has four times as many nukes as PS4

    • César H. Sandoval

      The system is broken even if you don’t cheat, if I steal a nuk, the owner has a 5 minute window (As far as I remember) to retialiate my FOB and steal it back, in this window you can’t protect the nuke at all because the network code usually doesn’t let you joing the attack session.

    Finally they are addressing the issue, hope they fix the nuclear tab and cheating on both FOB and multiplayer too. Better late than never I guess.

    Besides, I bet the nukes distribution on Steam isn’t homogeneous at all. Probably only few cheating members have over hundreds of warheads or something.. Their stats must be flashing under Konami’s nose for a long time.

    Took them long enough, I expected some kind of official “Nuclear abolition event” to unlock the final cutscene for the players, waaay sooner.

    I will believe it when I see it.

    Hey guys I know that I should not get any hopes at all , but I want to believe that Konami will show a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3 at E3, I mean they already have the cutscenes and this is the 30th year of the first metal gear, they have to give us something besides survive ( I don’t think it will be bad , because I really liked the gameplay from Phantom pain , and if they give us more , I think that’s good ) but it’s nothing worth for the occasion. :”””( they really have to give us something besides survive but honestly it’s Konami and I would have better luck if valve released half-life 3 than anything from Konami .

      ..but it will be the exact same game, with updated graphics and some new mechanics…I don’t get WHY some truly hold their breath for this…
      MGS3 is still perfectly playable and enjoyable as it is.

      Yeah, Death Stranding is an amazing thing to anticipate, it’s new and intriguing, but simply the makeover of an old game…not so much…

      • NegaScott128

        I think the move to MGSV’s controls, in addition to the updated graphics and whatever else they throw in, would be enough to get most people excited. Let’s be honest here: MGS3 has not aged particularly well in terms of controls. The story is still amazing, and the graphics still hold up really well for a PS2 game, but the controls are just not great. The first-person aiming is stiff, the CQC is really frustrating due to the pressure-sensitive buttons, and the lack of crouch-walking sticks out a lot. The 3DS version fixed a lot of these issues, but it’s also hamstrung by the awful performance and downgraded graphics. So if MGS3 were to be remade with the Fox Engine, and used MGSV’s controls, it would be a great improvement. Of course, they could easily f_ck something else up (I can easily see them screwing up the voicework like with SH2/3), and it still wouldn’t replace the original. But it would be a great way to revisit that story, and it would be a good entry point for new fans who don’t want to deal with the old controls.

        Because we will get to re-watch the cutscenes in a more cinematic form, you could get people who played MGS3 experience the Best Plot of the MGS Series!

    • InternecivusRaptusStrikesBack

      They already have the cutscenes? So what . They haven’t remade any of the cutscenes in the fox engine

    • Lex Radu

      Sounds realistic enough.

    Lol Julien paying a visit to mother base.. I asked him in French if he could leak a date for the first prototype.. xD
    I am sure he won’t answer but always worth trying… ;D

  • May 22nd update: nukes went down on all platforms.


    • vic boss

      The numbers on Xbox one are so low kinda wish I had an Xbox just so I could steal some of those nukes.

    • Eugene Voldo

      So it seems that we can achieve peace only with Xbox One as a leading platform. While with PC and PS leading World War 3 is inevitable for sure.
      Make Peace, buy Xbox! That’s a cool slogan for MS.
