Ocelot finally joins Metal Gear Solid V FOB missions in August update


Metal Gear now has room for two

Konami has announced that an August update is coming to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The update adds a few new features, among the most notable is the ability to play as Ocelot in FOB missions.

You won't be able to change his uniform or head option, but the post notes that Ocelot has a "slightly increased camouflage value." He also reloads and draws his weapons faster, can use one pistol in each hand with the Tornado-6, and can also use ricochet bullets on marked enemies.

The update will also add new functionality for the Wormhole Generator. The item can now automatically extract the player when in a critical situation, and it can no longer be removed by opponents and is harder to destroy.

New swimsuits and colors have been added for FOB staff, along with the Goblin Suit and Megalodon Suit for Diamond Dog soldiers. The post also makes mention of minor issues being fixed.
