    To unlock the mission, you need to make sure you have done this steps:

    - Spare the life of Quiet at end of Mission 11 so that you can recruit her as a “Buddy”.
    - Make sure you have the maximum possible bond with Quiet. You can check it out during the mission selection screen.
    - You have seen the cutscene at Mother Base in which Huey is exiled.
    - You don’t use the “Butterfly” design for your emblem.

    Now the final process has been started (See spoiler on how to prevent this).

    You can start Side Op 150 now. By progressing through this mission you will collect a file, which immediately starts the main mission 45. The achievement pops after completing this.

    Important: (Decide if you want to know it, but I think you should)

    GGS SyntaXNo, you only do not trigger the point of no return.

    BiGPaPaRuSo, if you do this mission and she is gone, I can equip he emblem and she will return by my side?

    GGS SyntaXNo, sadly she will not return. The emblem is for preventig the automaticly mission start. If you do this mission, she is lost forever.

    TerryLuddenapparently they are saying after newest patch, replay "cloaked in silence" 7 times when Quiet has left and she'll return (you have to knock her out though, no killing)

    I'm about to try this, wish me luck

    TerryLuddenHooray! it worked, she's back as a buddy with full bond etc

    Calex dEUSMight want to add a warning to the guide about actually going into the mission itself. I got a nasty surprise indeed when I found out what I was up against and the gear I actually had on me laugh
