Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain


Jarrod Garripoli

Blueprints are one of the collectibles in The Phantom Pain and are needed in order to develop some specific weapons. They are also needed in order to get the Collector trophy/achievement , along with Key Items. There are three ways to get Blueprints in the game, with the first being to finish the Key Dispatch Missions, which house 9 of them. There are also specific Side Ops that will require you to snatch Blueprints, totaling another 6. The remaining Blueprints will require you to find them in the wild, either while free roaming or during Main Missions.
