Get ready to start infiltrating more FOBs and spend Mother Base Coins as the October 20 Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain update will again reward players for successfully accomplishing tasks. Konami has also announced that they have yet to provide a fix for the PS4 save corrupting bug and they gave more clarifications about the issue. Here are all the details you should know about the latest update.

FOB Infiltration Rewards

The previous MGS5 TPP promotional event rewards have now been distributed and a new promotional event has been announced. Players are tasked to perform one FOB mission from October 19 to 27 and finishing it will grant you five A++ Combat Unit Staff. Successfully reaching the core of rival FOBs five times will grant you the following additional rewards:

  • One S++ Combat Unit Staff
  • Four S Combat Unit Staff
  • Five S R&D Team Staff
  • Five Base Development Unit Staff
  • Five Support Unit Staff
  • Five Intel Team Staff
  • Five Medical Team Staff
  • 1 million GMP

Spend GMP On FOB Expansion

Konami wants you to spend your Mother Base Coins on FOB platform expansion at least once from October 12 to 27. Expand your FOB and select the ?Reduce Expansion Time (Finish Now)?. The rewards include one S+ Base Development Unit Staff and five A++ Combat Unit Staff.

New Online Dispatch Missions

Konami seems to want players to rake in more fuel resources. Tons of online dispatch missions that rewards players with fuel resources have been added until October 27. This is a bit useful for those wanting to gather the requirements to build nukes.

Save Corrupting Bug & Other Updates

Konami has now clarified the issue on the PS4 save corrupting bug which affects players who use multiple Sony Network Entertainment accounts on a single console. According to them, the issue has yet to be fixed. This save corrupting bug mostly affects Day-1 edition owners who have already installed its included rewards.

Other changes included adjustments to the interface of the game, an extension of one day FOB blockade duration for each nuclear weapon the player owns, and a change in timing for notifying players for FOB intruders infiltrating their FOB. New DLC costumes have also been included and purchasable in the game.
