Metal Gear Online is now available for prospective Big Bosses to test their mettle against others vying for the same title. Utilizing all of the amazing gameplay found in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, MGO pits players against one another in various modes that will require different skills and strategies in order to achieve victory. It’s the merging of the awesomeness that is Metal Gear Solid and the frantic nature of multiplayer shooters.
One of the fun game modes you’ll get to experience in Metal Gear Online is Comm Control. Just like the Cloak and Dagger game mode, players will be split into an attacking team and a defending team. The aim of the attackers is simple: capture and control three communication link points. Your goal is to complete a comm download within a time limit, and capturing comm links will help to speed this up. Once you’ve completed the download, the attacking team wins.
On the other hand, if you’re on the defending team, your job is to make sure the attackers don’t complete the download within the time limit given. Even if they do manage to capture all three links, if the download isn’t successful, the defenders will take the win. Defenders will also be able to capture any comm links they’ve lost to the attackers.
Read on for some tips on how to improve your chances of success for both attackers and defenders.
