Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain: Here’s How To Recruit Quiet Back After Patch 1.06

Konami has released a brand new update for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on all major platforms. This new update includes fixes and tweaks to FOB Missions, Metal Gear Online and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Among the included fixes are some secrets like the ability to recruit Quiet again after finishing the game with the secret ending.

If you still haven’t played Metal Gear Solid V or finished the True Ending, the following information might contain major spoilers for you.

In Metal Gear Solid V, Quiet leaves the game as a Buddy once we defeat her again in Mission 40. There was no way to recruit her again after that until the latest patch was released. Some reddit users have managed to discover a method after the latest update to recruit her again.

In order to recruit Quiet again, you will need to replay Mission 11 for a random number of times until the description lists it as [REUNION] instead of [REPLAY]. The original user states that it took him 7 replays to recruit Quiet. Once you do so, you can recruit Quiet again provided you choose to let her live at the end of Mission 11.


Quiet will be able to keep whatever you developed for her as well retain her abilities. She can be used as a buddy again in any of the story mission.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is out now for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
