Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Adds Playable Ocelot to FOB Missions
New swimsuits, Wormhole Generator and more coming on August 1st.
Rejoice fans of the meowing, revolver-wielding Ocelot from Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain can take note – he’ll be available as a playable character on August 1st. This will only be FOB missions, however.
Though Ocelot’s head and uniform can’t be changed, his camouflage value matches the “highest defense” value of other outfits. Along with dual wielding pistols, Ocelot can also ricochet bullets on enemies that are marked. If that weren’t enough, his weapons reload and ready up faster than other characters.
Tomorrow’s update will also add new swimsuits and colours for FOB staff along with the Megalodon Suit for Diamond Dogs soldiers that increases movement speed at the cost of no camouflage. Players can also use Wormhole Generators for immediately extracting and these will be unmovable and difficult for enemies to destroy.
It should be noted that swimsuits are Online Development Items so you’ll need to receive Event Point Rewards and then develop them. Head here for the full patch notes to learn more. The update will be available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC tomorrow.
