Metal Gear Solid V:The Phantom Pain – Blueprint location guide

2 min read


You’re going to need some gear to survive Afghanistan in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And I’m going to need some tablets, as my depth perception is worth Jack-sh** as I dial up the authenticity and play the entire game with an eye-patch on.

Throughout Metal Gear Solid V, you’ll have the chance to upgrade your gear and find newer better weapons with which to introduce the Diamond Dog lead bullet philosophy. Some of these blueprints can be acquired by completing missions and side-ops. Others, you’re going to have to dig around for.

    This game and I have a love hate relationship.. On the one side I love the story and wanna keep seeing what happens next, but then on the other side they rip off Dragon Age inquisition and force you to do side mission that dont have anything to do with the actual story…

    For example.. I’m in Afghanistan capturing sheep and NPCs for God knows what reason, where I could be grinning like a stingy jew like I did in the prologue… STOP BREAKING THE GAMES’ PACING FFS!!! I WANNA PLAY THE STORY!!!
