    Blueprints updated and added invoice locations 9/28/2015

    *Patched 10/6/15*WARNING - If you pickup a blueprint during a mission and fail to complete the mission i.e you revert back to a check point, there is a chance that the blueprint will no longer be available. Make sure to stop and save your game after picking up a blueprint. You can save by doing any number of things in the menu and seeing the yellow circle on the top right of your screen.

    If you would like to check which Blueprints and Items you have then open your Idroid and move to the left tab (I believe its the "Mother Base" tab) and go to Encyclopedia. Then go to Documentation.

    BiGPaPaRuI don't believe it was patched until 10\6\2015. Many people have had problems with this until yesterday.

    Level 75 NoobWhy is no one bringing to attention the fact that this guide says you need to get the Grand Master Certificate (Elite) item? Is it really not difficult enough to acknowledge?

    BiGPaPaRuI don't understand your complaint. What are you upset about? To get the Grand Master Certificate (Elite) you need to S rank all the later missions that are Extreme, Subsistence, or Total Stealth. Do you want me to do it for you or something? Follow the solution for s ranking every mission if you need help completing them.

    Level 75 NoobSorry... No, what I'm saying is that sounds really hard redface. I wasn't complaining. Just confused that no one else had already.

    BiGPaPaRuIt's all good, just didn't understand what else was needed. Yeah they're tough but follow the solution for the s rank achievement and after 3 or 4 tries, you will get them.

    Stevo safcGrand Master Futon is taking ridiculously long, wish there was a way of tracking.

    BigNev44You can track activities now using the Challenge Tasks screen, Konami did some good adding that to the game via Patch 1.07, plus it retroactive to activities you done on the game previously.
