Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has a variety of different special items and outfits that we can unlock by progressing through the game and upgrading our Research and Development unit at Mother Base. One of this item is the Bandana that Solid Snake has used in the classic Metal Gear Solid games. You can unlock two different types of Bandana in the game and this guide covers both of them.

How To Unlock Bandana

In order to develop the Bandana outfit for Big Boss, you need to fulfill the following conditions.

  • Research and Development team need to be Level 34 or above.
  • You need to complete Side Ops 143 in order to get Strangelove’s Memento.
  • Acquire 400,000 GMP currency.

After fulfilling these conditions, the Bandana will be unlocked for Big Boss. It actually gives Big Boss the ability to lower occurrences of serious injury by 50%.

    is it usable with the recruits?

  • Bacbi

    Well that sucks so either you basically have to kill quite to get the bandana

    • Dave Pulver

      Spoiler you dumb fucking cunt…

      • Bacbi

        she’s not in any other game and boss says if u dont kill her in the sniper fight that they will eventually have to kill her. Also could be wrong im only on mission 16, so its just a theory based on what has been said so far

    • No you do not I have both and have locked her story.

      • Terrazi

        How do you do that?

        • Waterfall Monkey

          Get Quiet to kill more than you on 3 mission(Yes, you can repeat the same mission, has to be a Main Mission though) then you’ll get a new emblem called the Butterfly. As long as you use the Butterfly on your Emblem(In custiomization) Quiet’s bond rank can only reach up to 80-90%, whereas at 100%, she’ll leave.

    You’ll also need to level Medic to 34, not just R&D, other than that, good post.
