MGS 5: The Phantom Pain – Mission 29 S-RANK Walkthrough (Metallic Archaea)

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain – Mission 29 S-RANK Walkthrough (Metallic Archaea)

IMPORTANT: Episode 29 and 42 have a buddy issue involving Quiet. If you use her in these two missions it can cause a save game corruption and you might lose your entire progression. Discard the buddy choice in my video and go with D-Walker instead.
Thanks to CarpathianCarl and Titian 510 for pointing out the issue : )

❱ DESCRIPTION

As soon as the fight starts, they will all stand in front of you. Take a second and try to mark all 4 with your binoculars, then run towards the hangar ladder and climb up the roof. This spot is perfect for this confrontation, giving you all the time and space you need to plan your attacks. Quiet will also have a nice view of the skulls, which are moving in front of the hangar.

Call for a supply drop at the beginning to restock on ammo later. The best weapons to use are a sniper rifle or a rocket launcher. After a few minutes the skulls should all be down and you only have to carry your target to the nearby landing zone.

    There’s a progress bug related to mission 29 and 42 IF you take Quiet with you. Konami has issued an official warning about it. Back up your save from the Steam folder BEFORE starting 29 (and 42) i.e. copy and paste the save file somewhere safe (should be doing this routinely anyways as the game makes ZERO back ups, so if the save is corrupted during a power failure or game issue, you loose everything and have to start over. If you are doing S-Rank, optional requirements, 100%, etc. you can easily loose 100+ hours.

      Thanks for the Info. I put up a warning for the issue.

      I got lucky, i even retried this mission with Quiet a couple of times.

        I finished Mission 29 just yesterday and i just realized it today that: “Holy ****, wasn’t there a warning about this. Quick, gotta check my save file.” And the result is… Lucky me! (:
