Since the latest update, unintended responses have caused some concern among Metal Gear Online players. The developers have responded to this issue, saying it will be changed in the next update, releasing April 7th.
Thank you all for playing the new March Update and “Cloaked In Silence” Expansion DLC, we hope you enjoy the new maps and features.
Regarding a frequently mentioned concern, the team would like to share some update news to inform affected players. Players have experienced moments where flinch or stagger motion that occurs when shot while moving can leave them temporarily invulnerable. Likewise, forward movement can continue through the animation causing the player to appear to “teleport” to different locations.

The team is aware of these unintended responses in matches and are making changes to counter this concern. Players can expect these changes to be implemented publicly in the next update: Ver 1.11 available Apr 7th. This is the same update that will deliver the promised Survival Mode; and a few other new features and adjustments.
We’re still listening to player feedback on this and other concerns and requests–we will continue to make changes to improve MGO gameplay. Thank you for the continued support. Get ready for Survival and more for Metal Gear Online!
