Hopefully you bought the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, because community-made mods are starting to trickle onto the internet. The base game is good, but with mods it's even better.
Below you will find 10 of the most useful mods currently available.
10. Big Boss Head with Bandana
Venom Snake looks a little different than Big Boss fans are used to. With this mod his face is changed to be much more traditional along with being given a bandana.
9. Sweet FX Remix
Sweet FX has earned a reputation for making PC games look better without impacting performance. In MGSV it performs some color correction to make the game more true to life yet vibrant. This is the easiest way to improve the presentation of the game no matter how good your PC is.
8. High Rank Soldiers and Unique Characters
Most soldiers that you capture in MGSV don't have very good stats. This mod remedies that be adjusting their stats to be much higher. The effectiveness of Mother Base will be boosted as a result.
7. Mother Base Blessed Facilities
Let's be real, upgrading Mother Base is a real chore. Not only do you need an insane amount of resources for each upgrade, but they require several hours to complete. This mod allows you to upgrade your facilities at your own will, in addition to shortcutting the build time.
6. No Mission Score Penalty
Calling in air strikes is a lot of fun. Sadly, you're punished for using air support when participating in missions. This mod fixes that by removing the point penalty so that you can still obtain S ranks even when having a little fun.
5. Quiet Player Pack
Have you ever wanted to play as Quiet? With this mod you can turn Big Boss into Quiet and even enjoy a wide selection of outfits ranging from sexy to functional.
4. Extra Extra High Settings
MGSV is a good-looking game, but even at its highest settings it doesn't push modern PC hardware very much. This mod changes that by unlocking new shadow resolutions, increasing the draw distance, and more.
3. DLC and All Item Unlocker
Those planning to unlock all the items and gear in MGSV are in for a long journey. That is, unless they use this mod. Installing and enabling this mod instantly unlocks everything in the game, including some DLC items.
2. Get Quiet Back
One of the most frustrating things about MGSV is that Quiet is taken away from you near the end of the game. She's arguably the most effective buddy, making it a devastating loss. With this mod you'll be able to use her forever without losing the ability to continue progress in the game.
This mod increase the difficulty of the single-player experience for those seeking a challenge. Since there are no difficulty settings available in the game, this mod provides a great solution for Metal Gear enthusiasts.
