MGS 5: The Phantom Pain – Mission 44 S-RANK Total Stealth (Pitch Dark)
❱ RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT
☑ Rocket Launcher
❱ MAIN GOALS FOR S-RANK
☑ Avoid enemies by driving through the center of the map
☑ Destroy the separator tank from a distance
❱ MISSION OVERVIEW
The Total Stealth version of Pitch Dark doesn’t require a change up in strategies. You can still make your way in through the secret window to shut down oil pump and destroy the separator tank from a distance.
❱ MISSION GUIDE
Start off the mission by setting some waypoints. The waypoints from the video will ensure that you don’t have to worry about enemies while you drive to your target location.
With the help of D-Dog you are able to see all enemy movement in the facility. While there are a lot of them you really only have to worry about a couple of them.
❱ ENTERING THE FACILITY (02:25)
Enter through the main gate and get up the stairs in front of you. If you time it right you only have to take out one enemy up here and you’re good to go to enter the oil pump.
Shut it down and exit through the door. There will be one enemy at this walkway who can be a little tricky, but this way is recommended nice all enemies will run inside the base once you shut down the pump.
❱ BLOWING UP THE OIL SEPARATOR (05:38)
After you exit the facility on the south-west side, take out your rocket launcher and destroy the separator tank. Skip the cutscene, call a pick-up helicopter and get out of there. You could also just leave the hot zone since it’s not much further than the LZ.
