The recently released Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is an insane game, to say the least â€“ and not because Quiet is pretty hot (well, not entirely). The game is an amazing improvement over all the other MGS titles of the past, and we are sure it will be a Game of the Year contender before 2015 ends.
As of now, a lot has been said and written about the game â€“ including Quiet's, well, thoroughly "passionate" scenes (plus this) that made us bang our heads on the desk out of frustration. But aside all that bullpucky, the game lets you do a number of things in-game that were previously unheard of.
While we are sure you guys have already digested the game to the point of no return, what if we told you that there are still things you can do in the game that are equally fun, but may have escaped your attention. Interested? Let's have a closer look.
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain â€“ 10 Fun Things to Try Out
Stun Arm Them Vehicles
While Snake's Bionic Arm is amazingly effective in almost frying a single bad guy, did you know that you could use that arm on an entire fleet of enemy in a vehicle? This, however, is possible if you have already ranked up your Fulton equipment. Don't believe us? Try it out.
Do the "Wanted" Effect
Remember that Angelina Jolie movie "Wanted" where the assassins could curve the path of the bullet? Well, what if we told you that you can do the same in MGS 5? To do this, whenever you see a Pequod or any enemy gunship getting closer to the ground, just fire bullets towards the rotors and that will cause them to curve away.
Make Them Surrender All At Once (While on D-Horse)
This is one epic thing you can try out. While riding your horse, just make your way towards a stationary enemy vehicle that's being guarded, and just by pointing your weapon at them, you can make all of them surrender all at once. If not anything, this saves time. You can use the side mount option to stay hidden while approaching them.
Hurt Your N**s
Forget Phantom Pain, the real pain is when someone punches you just below the belt and onto your man-nuts. And in MGS 5, you can punch your own ba**s, via your ever-trusty Bionic Arm. Just throw a punch and try-redirecting its direction to your ba**s. The end result is the 'imminent death' animation, though.
Take a Dump to Stop Vehicles
Take a poop and the world will notice. Just put D-Horse in the path of any approaching vehicle, press L1/LB and select the 'Do It' command. The horse will then take a dump on the road that will make the onrushing vehicles to spin out of the road. Warning: Don't try this at home.
Create Extra Landing Zone
Want to get rid of the entire "where's the Pequod gonna land this time" ordeal? Here's what you: Just locate Comms satellites (the slow spinning black ones) and destroy them. You can even use C4 if you want.
Recruit Lost Soldiers
Enough of killing and spilling blood. If you see a wandering soldier around (they were in Ground Zeroes), head towards him in a cardboard box and he will know instantly that it's the Big Boss, before surrendering and joining your cause.
Water Pistol is More Fun That You Thought
Here are a few things you can do with your water pistol: Squirt water on the sleeping enemies' crotches and they will run to the bathroom; Clean up blood after a grimy encounter; Spray water on Quiet and hear her giggle.
Dodge Bullets Like Neo
Matrix was an insane movie, and even more insane were the bullet dodging scenes. And believe it or not, Big Boss also has similar abilities. In the game, you can develop the Acceleramin drug and make use of it to dodge bullets from enemies.
Drown Them Guards
Leaving guards face-down in any amount of water will ultimately drown and kill them.
