Konami has issued an urgent warning to Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain players after the discovery of a bug that is corrupting save files.
The issue occurs if you bring along your sniper buddy Quiet on two specific missions.
To avoid any chance of save corruption, do not bring Quiet as a buddy on Mission 29 or Mission 42.
Konami has warned the issue affects all versions of the game – PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
“We deeply apologise, and appreciate your patience for further announcements regarding this issue,” Konami wrote in a new blog post.
A patch is now in the works to fix the problem.
Until updated; please avoid playing missions 29 & 42 while using Quiet as your buddy, as this seems tied to the cause of the issue
