Watch Your Weight
Metal Gear Online, the online component of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, is finally available, allowing everyone to find out once and for all who the best Big Boss out there is. With multiple modes and tons of strategies to try out, there is quite a bit to learn before you look more like a pro and less like the game’s sometimes shoddy AI. Luckily you’ve stumbled upon a list of useful tips and tricks that will help you dominate Metal Gear Online in no time.
To kick things off you’re going to have to watch your weight. Items and gear in Metal Gear Online have weights that add up to encumber your character. The more you carry, the slower you move and the less likely you are to look like a graceful bird as you try to dive out of harms way. The good thing is that the inverse is also true. Carry less, and you’ll be as light as a feather, or at least as light as a normal human who isn’t carrying a ton of gear.
Although a lot of what you see will look cool, if it isn’t necessary, leave it behind. That includes cool looking goggles and cardboard boxes.
