    This one requires you to completely expand your Mother Base. FOB's have nothing to do with it. Your goal is to build all 4 parts of every platform of Mother Base (Combat, Development, R&D, Medical, Intel and Support).

    Naturally playing through the game should eventually enable you to build every one of the platforms, and expand each of them as you collect more and more resources.

    If you want to get this achievement as quick as possible, hold off on spending any fuel resources and common metal on development projects, as every 4th part alone costs 48000 of these. Takes a while to collect. Mining happens automatically, but pro actively collecting these in the field speeds things up a bit.

    Also, at one point it turned out I had about 10000 PF points, which I spent on extra common metal and fuel. You may probably have some of these yourself. Open the PF Grade option on the Mother Base tab in the iDroid, then hit RT to spend them.

    Hope this helps!

    hella rad babeIf your hurting for Fuel or whatever resource, infiltrating enemy FOB's can give you a hefty bunch if you take down the right platform. (It tells you what each platform has before you select it.)

    RvDuinenGood one, though I believe any resource containers you steal from another FOB remain 'unprocessed' materials in your online pool - meaning they first have to be processed (happens over time automatically) and are not available for spending right away. Also, if you're unlucky they could also be stolen (back) by someone else. But it sure is a good way to grow a large pool of online resources waiting for processing.

    If you are like me, and do not really care about trying your luck scavanging the two open world maps picking up refined resources (or getting lucky with some red cargo containers), then know there is an easier soultion to obtaining materials needed for construction, especially on the last tier for each platform:

    FOB Infiltration

    Once you get to a certain point in the game, you will unluck this game mode where, basically, you invade another players FOB and steal stuff, and soldiers. There is also an achievement for the activity:
    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom PainIntruderThe Intruder achievement in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain worth 33 pointsPlay an "Infiltration" FOB mission.

    Each platform offers up different rewards that scale based on the number of platforms built, and the level of security the enemy player has currently arranged. For example, if you are in need of Fuel Resources, the infiltrating another players Support Platforms are what you want to do. If they have 1 platform, then on completion you are garunteed ~4500 fuel resource. If they have 2, then that number can double, and so on. (Also, on 2 and above, you have the option of extracting via fulton cargo containers with other resources).

    Each platform offers up different resources, and are structured differently, however once you learn the layout they can be easy to run through.
