Recruit Hideo Kojima in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Metal Gear series creator and Director of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain isn’t shy to appear in his own games. Just like Ground Zeroes before it, Kojima also makes an appearance in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Players can recruit the legendary Japanese developer as a Recruit in their Mother Base. Doing so is fairly simple, start off by importing your Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes save data where you’ve saved Kojima in the mission ‘Intel Operative Rescue’. After that just complete the ‘Where Do The Bees Sleep’ in MGS V, doing so will add Kojima to your team at the Mother Base.


Although Kojima doesn’t have an in-game model and won’t join you on your missions, you can assign him to various other tasks. His skills are pretty impressive with a S in Intel and A+ in R&D. Also check out our guides on how to Recruit Quiet and D-Dog.


Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is available now for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The game has gotten rave reviews and is currently one of the best rated games of the generation so far.
