Details Revealed For Metal Gear Online

By Andy Mills, 1 year ago
If you're anything like me, most of your free time recently has been taken up by Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. When I've not been writing articles for you fine folks, chances are I've been Fultoning something. Metal Gear Online - the online multiplayer mode for The Phantom Pain - is launching soon and with that in mind, Konami have released some details about it.

First up are the mission types.
BOUNTY HUNTER

Teams win if the number of enemy team tickets is reduced to zero. Killing or Fultoning an enemy reduces the enemy team tickets by one. Fultoning an enemy increases your team's ticket total by the value of the Fultoned enemy's bounty.

CLOAK AND DAGGER

Attackers win by recovering the Data Disc and uploading it at the Evac Point within the time limit. Defenders win by preventing the upload. Attackers are armed with only non-lethal weapons while defenders only have lethal weapons. This is an elimination mission. Once eliminated, you cannot return to the battlefield until the next round.

COMM CONTROL

Attackers must capture Comm Links to download confidential intel. If the attackers complete the download within the time limit, they are victorious. If the defenders are able to prevent this within the time limit, they are victorious. Comm Links can be captured by staying within the effective range of the Comm Links until they change ownership.

ENFORCER Class

With great strength, the "Heavy Class" specializes in powerful weapons. However, movement speed is slow making this class less effective in close quarters. This class is for intermediate players.

INFILTRATOR Class

Fast moving, the "Infiltration Class" specialty is close combat such as CQC. Due to the strength being low, you should avoid a head-on battle. This is a class for experienced players.
