Prevent Sahelanthropus from being deployed and take vengeance on Skull Face on extreme difficulty.
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain – Sahelanthropus Mission Objectives
We’re back in episode 31, except everything is harder this time.
- Destroy Sahelanthropus
- Destroy Sahelanthropus’s head
- Successfully hit the floating boy with an attack
This episode is basically going to play out just like the first time, but Sahelanthropus’ attacks will be a lot more devastating.
As before, it has a flaming whip with a follow up ground attack. It also has a machine gun, a flamethrower, missiles, and a laser attack.
Use the cover provided to the right of the map where the road loops in a U-shape.
Make use of supply drops and dodge attacks to get through this battle.
Destroy Sahelanthropus’s head
Attack its head until it sprouts flames to tick off this objective.
Targeting it during the reflex mode is a good way to chip away at it.
Successfully hit the floating boy with an attack
The floating boy will pop out during a reflex mode moment. Be sure to have your missile launcher reloaded and wait until he appears before shooting him.
