Metal gear solid

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is finally in stores and MGSV might very well be the only game that can compete with The Witcher 3 for Most Dense Game of 2015. So we’re putting together a series of guides to help you find every blueprint, cassette tape and memento photo spread throughout Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Here, we’ve got details on how you can obtain each of the 27 blueprints scattered throughout the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain campaign. Many will require you to reach certain milestones, either in the game’s story or with your base/character progression, but we’ve tried to list qualifications where applicable. And feel free to let us know if you find an alternate way to recover any of these.

But that’s enough chatter. Here’s how to find every blueprint in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain!
