Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain – Mission 30 S-RANK Walkthrough (Skull Face – Stealth)
❱ RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT
☑ D-Dog (Important for marking enemies)
❱ MAIN GOALS FOR S-RANK
☑ Don’t trigger reflex or alarm
☑ Sneak and take your time
Although this mission has lots of enemies moving around, you don’t have to worry about most of them. There is a “secret” path on the left through half of the facility. It will take you pretty far without much effort.
Depending on the time of day, enemies will be placed differently. Go in at night for slightly better odds. You can see enemy search lights and can coordinate your movement better. D-Dog will also mark all targets for you, so it’s fairly easy to keep track of your surroundings.
Once you’re at the first security camera, you will have to start taking out a few enemies. Use a silenced weapon and try not to trigger reflex. The top level of the last section can be a bit tricky depending on enemy movement, but is not too hard if you are moving slowly.
Sneak to the back left, right next to the big gate where the walker stands and wait for the right time to drop down. After you’re inside the gate you are safe and you can’t be spotted. Run up to the top, which triggers a cutscene. Skip it to not waste time since it adds to your mission time.
