    An Infiltration FOB is when you invade another player's FOB (Forward Operating Base). These became available once you have completed mission 22, which is essentially a tutorial for this type of mission.

    Currently getting this to work can be pretty janky. You first need to get your own FOB, but the game has been known to freeze when you purchase it (during the tutorial). So what you do is load the game up in offline mode, turn online mode on from the pause menu, then purchase an FOB. This tends to get around it.

    After this, go to the Aerial Command Center and open up the Missions tab on your iDroid. Pick FOB Missions, and choose a base to invade. The achievement pops as soon as you commence the mission, so no pressure to win (they're actually pretty hard).

    As of the writing of this guide, these bases default to people your rank. It's entirely possible you could find an empty FoB to attack.

    Dr Scruffletonso is this glitched now for the people trying to unlock it? wondering if I should hold off trying to get this achievement for now

    HolyMollsterNot sure. Does the person who's base you are infiltrating have to be there for the achievement to pop? Ive done 3 now. 2 peoples and a training one on my platform. Nothing.

    Can you not choose platforms from your friends list?

    AG Bucky BarnesThat sounds like the "Done... Unlocking!" server lag HolyMolster subject to every game at random times. Glad it unlocked for you.

    Warboy925You might wanna note that you can't access FOB missions from Mother Base (IDK about free-roam), I didn't see the option until I was in the helicopter...

    Elite1111111111I mean you can't access ANY missions from Mother Base (except the target shooting I guess), so I don't see how that's relevant. If you've made it through mission 22 one would assume you know how to start a mission. I guess I can add it though.

    Elite1111111111Sorry that was meant as a general 'you', as in the player, not a jab at you in particular. My bad.
