Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain covers topics of war and revenge, showing some severe consequences for both. Metal Gear Online tries to do the same while allowing players to fully customize their character. Even while fighting for your life, you can make sure your pet cat isn’t left alone at home.
Ricky the cat is the only living mammal you can equip as headgear in Metal Gear Online. The description for the item says “Your cat demanded to join you on the battlefield”, and Ricky clings tight to your head no matter how hard you try to shake him off.
Ricky costs 300 Mother Base Coins to purchase, but the tactical advantage he provides is invaluable. Ricky’s fur will keep your head warm during chilly combat situations. He will motivate you to try your best in the middle of war, and can confuse your enemies, who will wonder why a soldier is wearing a cat instead of protective headgear.
This isn’t the first time Metal Gear Online has added an animal as a hat, but it’s definitely the cutest animal they’ve added so far. Have any ideas for more Metal Gear Online gear? Let us know in the comments.
