How to get around Mother Base quickly

You may never need to visit the various platforms of Mother Base (outside of story reasons), but it’s good to do it from time to time. You can always explore and find hidden posters and gems, the latter of which has a GMP value. Going and seeing your staff in person increases the overall morale, too.

There are three main ways that help you get around quickly – outside of running. The first is calling your chopper into any of the helipads and have it travel to any of the others on the various platforms. This is the most enjoyable one as it lets you appreciate the size of you base. It also helps you see some hidden gems you wouldn’t otherwise be able to see.

Another way to get around is to drive the jeeps scattered around. They are usually parked at the start of the roads to each strut.

Finally, and the fastest way, is to go to any of the yellow spaces labelled “cargo loading zone”. These can found near the helipads and if you hide in your cardboard box on any of them, a menu will pop up to let you choose the destination. A few seconds and a black screen later and you’ll be there.

The same trick can be utilised around the game world anywhere you locate these cargo zones.
