How to stop the staff from fighting at Mother Base

The more soldiers you bring back from the field to expand your various platforms, the more you’ll start seeing a message saying “fighting has broken out among staff”. There’s no actual fighting location where you can go to stop it, but you can prevent it from happening again in the Staff Management menu.

You need to pay attention to your screen when this message appears, because if it appears often enough, it will result in staff members being taken to the sickbay a lot, which brings down unit levels and is generally bad for morale.

Remember those recruits with the Troublemaker skill? Well, these guys are the ones causing it. The best way to counteract this is to pair them with others who possess the Diplomat skill, a skill designed to break fights.

Sometimes though the ones causing trouble are highly-rated, and losing them would mean downgrading the level of their unit. In these instances, you’ll need to weigh your loss vs gain. We would recommend sending them to the Waiting Room as you figure things out. Generally speaking though the higher rating doesn’t make up for the loss of staff due to the fights.

In fact, send anyone you’re not sure of to the Waiting Room instead of outright dismissing them. Only dismiss the ones that are way lower level than anyone else. Remember that as you upgrade your scope, you will acquire better recruits, so don’t be afraid to get rid of the old guard.
