In Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, I know the ending mission is 46. How do you unlock the mission so you can play it and watch the ending?

Edit 1:

I got that ending but it still will not unlock for me. I got the cassette tape at the end and all.

Edit 2:

Here are the screenshots (MAJOR SPOILERS): steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=519951201 and steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=519951450 (Spoiler tags enabled for each)

According to this link, you are needing to have:

  • Complete all of the main story missions (excluding the repeat missions) before and after this mission.

  • You must also complete all of the important Side Ops indicated in yellow.

  • Listen to all of the yellow cassette tapes

  • You will need a fully upgraded Mother Base and all of its platforms.

If I remember correctly, there are about 49 total missions but Mission 46 marks the end of the story, Truth.

Due to comments, I will probably say a nearly fully upgraded Mother Base instead of a fully upgraded one. Maybe this link could help you unlock mission 46: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/718564-metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain/72466817

  • Do you just need Mother Base, or do you also require things like the FOBs? – Camouflaged Cow Sep 19 '15 at 1:35
  • Well you need the Mother Base *and all of the platforms for the Mother Base – Anthony Pham Sep 19 '15 at 1:36

    @PythonMaster That's not true. You don't need to fully upgraed Mother Base to see the unlock mission 46. – Zarathustrax Sep 19 '15 at 1:38
  • Yes, I've triggered mission 46 also and I haven't fully upgraded mother base. – Raven Dreamer Sep 19 '15 at 12:59
  • Then how many platforms do you need? All up to 3? – Camouflaged Cow Sep 19 '15 at 14:06

I just want to leave here my experience.

I had done mission 45 and side ops 150.

I did a lot of side ops but mission 46 wouldnt pop.

What I did was trigger all my tapes which were not heard and then did ONE side op.

Upon completion mission 46 immediately appeared in the list.

Mother Base had absolutely nothing to do with it.

    This is more correct than the common methods you see listed nearly everywhere, as I am rather confident that most people are just copying the same incorrect steps listed everywhere. I feel the most commonly "unlisted" step is to do some side-op(s) AFTER all requirements are meant, as this is rarely ever listed. – ForeverZer0 Nov 9 '18 at 16:55
