Metal Gear Solid 5 Africa Side OPs Guide
There are three men in total here. I just snuck up on them and took them all out with Tranq head shots.
You can sneak up to the house he is in easily enough. Take out the guards in front and then grab the prisoner. You can either extract him outside the house or bring him out of the camp and do it. I got caught by extracting him right outside the house but there were plenty of soldiers worth taking there anyways.
Now there are 6 enemies in the area. One is a sniper and one is in the guard tower. I took the guard tower guy out with my Tranq gun silenced and then moved into the tent to take out the rest. You will want to do this quietly so you don’t alert the sniper. Silence weapons and head shots all the way here. Once they are down, Tranq the sniper. He had a A rating and skill for me so I captured him. Free the prisoner and then you beat the Side Op.
If you stick to the upper side of the base you should be able to avoid most enemies and get to the prisoner. Just be ready with a silenced weapon just in case.
Once he came I shot him with a Tranq dart to the head with my silenced pistol. This will alert the other three and that is where the Stun Nade comes in handy. Toss that into the middle of them and they should all hit the deck. When they do that, extract the sleeping guy and kill them all before they can get up. The nade and you firing will alert the men but you can get out before they come down on you. There are alot of supplies here so I stuck around and cleared out the camp with Quiet support sniping for me. Either way you got your target.
Finding him was the easy part, getting him out was alot harder. He is right next to a Armored Vehicle that doesn’t move unless it sees you. I crawled up close enough to the target and Tranqed him a few times in the chest, he has a helmet so head shots are out. From there I planted all my C4 on the vehicle. After that I extracted the target, which got my noticed, and then ran and blow up the car. From there I just escaped.
Thinking back on it, you could probably extract the vehicle as well.
You can also sneak up on them and use your knife or knock them out if you want to capture any of them.
If you use your scope you should see a sniper team looking over the tank. I crawled up to them and took that whole team down without alerting anyone. After that I crawled to the tank and extracted it. This alerted the next squad of soldiers and they came to check it out. I killed two and extracted the one I wanted. There is still a lone troop roaming around you will need to deal with as well. I shot the chopper down with my launcher and he came to me. Taking the last guy down will win you mission.
Sneak into the airport and use the buildings as cover as you work your way to the blueprint. If you stick to the back of the buildings you will only run into 2-3 enemies. Grab the blueprint and get out.
I actually took out the whole camp because everyone here was A+ or A++ and I wanted them. If you just want to sneak into the tent and grab the blueprint though that’s easy enough. Watch out for the truck that patrols through there.
It is very hard to sneak up on him because he is always on alert. Once he had the ! over his head and he turned around, I took a shot with my Tranq pistol and got him in the face. You might want to bring the Tranq sniper rifle to get the head shot at a distance.
I used my Tranq sniper on him to get him from a distance, head shot will drop him.
You can get him at a distance with a Tranq sniper rifle. The head shot is tricky because of the tiny head, but it is possible.
This one is rolling with a pack of 5 so go with the Tranq sniper again. I was able to put them all to sleep and extract them all with no trouble.
