July update brings Quiet to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’s FOBs

Surprise! Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has just received a new update. The update lets you play as Quiet during the FOB events, making use of her unique abilities. Furthermore, new online development items have been added, as well as a new difficulty setting for Event FOBs (a hard mode). In addition, some minor issues have been fixed as well. Check out the full details below, as published on the official website.

Cloaked in Silence is available in FOB missions!

You can play as Quiet to infiltrate FOBs. You cannot change her uniform or head options. She is an expert with a sniper rifle, and her steady hands let her take her shots with minimal shaking. Quiet’s movement speed is extremely fast and allows for unique jumping abilities over high steps where a player would usually need a ladder. She can close in on enemies quickly with her special dash, while remaining still for a certain amount of time will make her stealthy.
*The defense value matches the highest defense value within the unlocked battle dresses.

New Online Development items added!

Look forward to the addition of new development items designed to aid in your missions. Below, we take a look at just a few of the new items. All of these are Online Development items, meaning their development continues even when you are away from your game system or PC. You can also use earned MB Coins to shorten the development time.
