As a HUGE Metal Gear Solid fan (since 1999), I was psyched for the release of Kojima’s final instalment of the Metal Gear series MGSV: The Phantom Pain. I pre-ordered my copy back in February and played the game on day 1 of its release for CRAZY amount of hours, almost daily, over the first couple of months. Just recently, I’ve found out it’s all been for very little ‘fulfilment’t. After all, you’re not allowed 100% completion and a platinum trophy.
This comes as a surprise for a game that was relatively glitch free after release. Well… then again…every time you logged onto the game and signed into Konami’s servers online, you were confronted with a barrage of repetitive statements of known glitches that would be fixed…but thankfully, none affected me personally. That is, up until now.
Yep. Don’t bank on 100% completion and all trophies/achievements…There’s no official statements I can find specifically relating to this problem, or even a fix, other than 1 or 2 other sites reporting the glitch. Also, trying to REPORT the glitch or communicate DIRECTLY with game developers is next to impossible; if they’re on twitter, they don’t mind ignoring you. I can’t find any email, chat or phone numbers that will connect me to the relevant people.
So what is this bug, exactly? It basically relates to the collectable blueprints in the game. Specifically for me the blueprint GUN CAM DEFENDER which is (supposedly) obtainable after the completion of Side Op 9 (Nova Braga Airport). I don’t have this in my collection despite mission completion and as of right now, it’s a mission you cannot RE-ENTER to try and complete it over again. So I’m stuck on 96% completion in this area and won’t be able to go any further….which therefore means there’s no point completing other aspects of the game that require 100% completion status for that elusive platinum trophy on my PS4. onto something else then, Koanmi.
“Fixed soon” is an optomistic view from GeekSnack, you’d think nearing 3 months of age would’ve had something as severe as this patched already.
Here is a list of all the blueprints that you can obtain and find in the game, FYI.
