Acquired cassettes in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain are surprisingly handy. When played through the speaker of the iDroid they produce special effects, helping Snake in his missions. However, using a tape will cause it to disappear from you inventory, at which point you need to return to where you found or it complete the required criteria again.
