    After some time you will have full staff; at that point you can be picky about who to fulton, who to kill, or ditch it all (unless you toy with FOBs). But yeah, it is retared, especially once you research the wormhole upgrade.

    You don't need to fulton every soldier, only the good ones. That's how the system works. If you recruit every fucking single retard from the battlefield, you'll have the base full or useless idiots in the "waiting room" and you will waste your time.
    Check the soldiers with the binoculars.

    I ghosted the levels and went Rambo style a lot of times, and I almost have level 50 in all plataforms.

    I have Demon snake level too.

    Also, those few seconds that the scanning takes get really annoying after you have used the binoculars five million times. In PW you could actually upgrade the binoculars so the scanning took less than a second.

    you don't. you can just rely on volunteers. if you want to ghost stuff you don't need to research all that many gadgets and weapons anyway.

    Ghosting levels, killing soldiers and upgrade the mother base are compatible, which is my point. Because it's just about fultoning the best soldiers you see, not everybody, who are 4-8 soldiers per mission. Yes, they are a lot of good soldiers. 140 soldiers per plataform. But it's very light when you do it as I said. If you start to farm soldiers you'll end up tired very soon.

    Why am I falling for this every time? I know that this guy is a fucking retard for years, yet I click on them when someone posts them on the Codex. And yet again, I can't take more than 4 minutes before I ragequit. Fucking drama queen.

    This game has problems, and he touches these problems, and he has good points, but he presents it in such an awfully rage inducing, pretentious, trolling way, that I can't listen to it.

    So what about that Quiet character? Is she a dickgirl like people speculated or what's her secret?

    75% are levels from the first chapter with modifiers attached. Story-wise there's at most another two or three hours of content.

    Yeah, I started a new game recently and I'd forgotten how annoyingly long you have to play before being able to research some pretty basic stuff.

    For example, do I really need a team of elite scientists to be able to figure out how to put a silencer on a sniper rifle?

    Umm, guys? Why can't I advance further than mission 42? I've done every side ops which were marked with yellow.

    Clear a few side ops or do some other random stuff. If I recall correctly you need events to happen to call you back to motherbase.

    Haha, it turns out Skullface is of Hungarian origin! Always good to see when film and videogame makers use our little country for something in their stories.

    Yes, both countries occupied Hungary during and after WW2. Hungary was ruled by a foreign language, as Skullface said.
