More evidence has emerged that there was more cut content in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain than meets the eye- the community is largely disappointed at what is being perceived to be the disappointing ‘end’ of the game. More voice files for Episode 51 have also been unearthed in the game’s files on the PC- which indicates that there is something more to the game than just the playable content that players have unearthed so far.

Another Reddit user actually went through the tapes and found out that the game was supposed to have guard dogs. The transcript reads: “It’s a guard dog, don’t get too close. Wouldn’t want it to start barking. Dog’s sense of smell is better than ours. And so is their night vision. Don’t take any chances.” There was also supposed to be a conversation between Ocelot and Snake about the absence of Quiet once you have completed mission 45.

The Battle Gear was also supposed to be playable with Ocelot detailing its functions. “The Battle Gear is an armored weapon developed to take on hostile bipedal weapon systems. You can alter its maneuverability by changing its posture. In travel mode it’s as nimble as a horse. Whereas in fire mode you can move while keeping an eye on the area in front of you. It’s armed with a railgun and a heavy machinegun. If you like, we can look into adding other weapons too.” Furthermore FOB insurance was always supposed to be in the game, given Kaz’s dialogue with Snake. “A lot of rival PFs have Diamond Dogs in their sights, so I’ve lined us up a great deal on insurance. If you sign off on it, we’ll be covered on anything lost to rival PFs. Personnel, hardware, GMP.””

Whatever it is, it seems that, as of right now, the Metal Gear Solid 5 ruse cruise continues. Long may it continue.

    There’s nothing substantial here except for the guard dogs.Battle Gear was known to have been cut on purpose for gameplay balance reasons. Ocelot talking about Quiet is just 1 line.

      I bet the guard dogs were cut because they didn’t want people accidentally shooting D-Dog.

    • AndrewJ

      why the heck did they even leave the battle gear in there.
      maybe it had gone to far to take it out of the game,

      >Cut for balance reasons
      Like quiet can’t tranq a whole base without breaking a sweat
      Like DD can’t find everyone, then go around stunning or killing them

      This game should have been called Metal Gear Flaccid – The Phantom Fail

    My guess about episode 51 is that Kojima is pranking us. He’s creating a “conspiracy” about Episode 51, in the spirit of conspiracy theorists regarding Area 51. He probably dumped a bunch of files that typically get cut in any video game’s development. Maybe he added some conspiratorial hints to make it believable.

      Orrr, Konami saw enough game content in chapter 1 and 2 and thought of mutilating it off and selling it for more money separately.

  • BigBoss_OG

    We got honey dicked… the only way for Kojima to make amends with his fanbase is by remaking MG 1 and 2 with the Fox Engine and have Hayter voice Solid Snake one last time.

  • I wish you could’ve at least customized Battle Gear. Peace Walker at least let your Zeke get decked out.
