    I think this might be one of the first times I've seen a user take that advice. Nice one, @Thomas! Very exciting.

By default, the 'special' staff such as Ocelot, Kojima, etc have Direct Contracts. This is indicated by the padlock symbol on the Staff Management screen.

Staff with a Direct Contract will not leave, and additionally cannot be extracted by opposing forces raiding your Forward Operating Bases (FOBs).

  • As someone who just started the game, is there a downside to marking staff members with a Direct Contract? Sep 21, 2015 at 14:07

    @DangerZone The downside is they're not available for deployment missions, and I'm pretty sure you can't pick them when invading/defending a FOB, and they wont be picked to guard your base during a FOB invasion. Because during all these things the staff member has a chance of dying.
