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.

Here’s where you can find them, if you keep an eye out for such things. Also, mild spoilers, I suppose.
