Jarrod Garripoli

The Metal Gear series of games has a huge following and is considered by many to be the premier in storytelling and history. By the time March 2015 hit, the series had sold a total of 41.2 million copies worldwide. In order to better understand the story, you will need to have played Metal Gear Solid 3, Peace Walker and Ground Zeroes, as they all take place before the events of this game. All of the other main series games take place after this one, chronologically.

The purpose of this guide is to provide strategies to get you through all of the main missions in the game, complete with all mission tasks, as well as all 157 Side Ops missions. Also, this guide will attempt to help you build up your Mother Base as powerful as it can be, with detailed stats for building platforms, a list of skills for your staff, and how to develop all of the most powerful equipment. Finding all of the collectibles, including the Cassette Tapes, Memento Photos and Blueprints will be made easy with our incredibly detailed guide.
