Metal Gear Solid 5 Guide - Complete Mission Walkthrough and Guide, How to S Rank Every Mission

Complete every mission and primary objective to get S Ranks with this Metal Gear Solid Guide and Mission Walkthrough.

Here you will find the Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Walkthrough and Guide. In it we will cover all of the main story missions, as well as the mandatory and optional objectives in each one. We’ll help you to infiltrate enemy territory, plan the best possible approach, and then execute your missions with precision. Each mission walkthrough will describe how you can earn your S Rank, requiring 130,000 points.

The Phantom Pain is a game that allows you to approach each situation as you see fit. Because of this, there is no right or wrong way to proceed. Having spent considerable time with this game, however, we have come up with some tips that will help you in any situation.

Metal Gear Solid 5 Walkthrough - Tips and Tricks Guide

  • Take advantage of your iDROID, marking enemies and planning your next move. The more time you spend learning about your adversary, the better off you’ll be.
  • Should you find yourself running short on weapons and ammunition, don’t hesitate to call in a Supply Drop. Just make sure to call it in somewhere safe.
  • Use interrogations to your advantage. Questioning an enemy combatant can reveal troop positions or even objectives. Sometimes non-lethal is the way to go.
  • Collect as many materials as you can. These can be used to expand your Mother Base, allowing you to develop new weapons and gadgets for the battlefield.
  • Consider launching missions at 18:00 hours. This will give you the cover of darkness as you try to sneak in and out of enemy installations. Just be aware, morning will come.
