MGS 5: The Phantom Pain – Mission 48 S-RANK Extreme (Code Talker)
❱ RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT
❱ MAIN GOALS FOR S-RANK
☑ Skip the skull fight at the beginning
☑ Escape through the LZ in the north
❱ MISSION OVERVIEW
To speed this mission 48 extreme version of “Code Talker” up quite a bit, you can drop in with a tank and skip this fight entirely. This comes in very handy since the bumped up health of the skulls will drag this fight out.
After you trigger the cutscene, you can ignore the skulls and simply focus on getting your tank to a safe zone up on the hill. Leave the tank behind once you can rely on the woods to give you cover.

❱ GETTING INSIDE THE MANSION (02:40)
Follow the waypoint until you see the mansion. There will be one guard at a search-light. Wait until he looks away and move forward to the back entrance. With the help of D-Dog you can see a couple of enemies outside and two inside. You can either wait for the right time and sneak in or quickly kill the guards outside.
Enter the building and go left into the basement where code talker is held. Skip the cutscene for extra points and get back upstairs. Take a moment to call a pick-up helicopter to the north LZ before you face the possessed soldiers.
❱ ESCAPE WITH CODE TALKER (04:49)
The skulls will be waiting just before the LZ and searching the area for you with their laser sights. Avoid the lasers and you should reach the LZ pretty easy for the mission 48 S-Rank.
