Ever wanted to play as a female soldier in the Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain? You can play with your recruited soldiers in MGS5 TPP just like in Peace Walker, however, getting female characters are a bit hard in this game. Some may even finish MGS5 without recruiting them and its a shame because Kojima Productions seems to have gone the extra mile to fully implement them in MGSV.
The female soldiers that you can recruit aren?t a shehorned addition as they are fully voiced, has female proportions, and also reportedly gets to appear in cutscenes.?You can truly see the efforts poured by Kojima Productions based from?these implemented features according?to Polygon:
?They had to alter the game?s armor implementation to work with her different body proportions. They had to bring in a voice actress. They had to code scenes so Sutherland?s line reads would appear as captions and not voiceover in many scenes.?
How To Recruit Female Soldiers
According to Polygon, female prisoners can be recruited in Prisoner Extraction 02 in Side Ops. This is one of the few places which spawns women prisoners, the report said. Upon rescuing them, you can probably immediately use them on missions by just choosing which character to use before deploying on a mission.
You can also use Quiet as a buddy (check our guide on how to recruit Quiet?and get her sexy cutscenes?if you haven?t yet) and raid enemy outposts to show everyone the strength of girl power. Be wary however that not all recruited prisoners excel in combat and you might need to attempt rescuing female prisoners a couple of times to find the perfect soldier to replace Big Boss. Polygon noted however that soldier?s combat stats may increase so you can at least make her at par with Big Boss.
Will you replace Big Boss with your new recruits? Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain is now available for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The multiplayer modes called Metal Gear Online will reportedly be?made available this October 6 for consoles and next year for PC.
