Today Konami released a new trailer of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, showing off reflex mode.
So why-y-y-y-y don't you use it? Try-y-y-y-y not to bruise it? Buy-y-y-y-y time don't lose it
Oh its to late i disagreed to it already but i got your duran duran reference :)
I'll be playing with this mode turned off
I will try also, but I think the true reason its implemented is the fact the game has gone open, that the chances of getting caught are better, so I have a feeling I will start with it on, but get frustrated and turn it off haha.
Yep, Boss Extreme on MGS 4 was fun, and going through the game only tranquilizing enemies was even more fun. I do love some Metal Gear challenges. Though, I think I'm going to just tackle each level as I see fit this time. Rather than sticking to 'only stealth', or 'only guns blazing'. I honestly just want to experience the story of MGS V. Considering this is the last MGS game. I'll worry about the crazy hard/fun challenges after my first playthrough. Regardless, I think I'll turn off the Reflex mode for my initial run. I turned it off on Ground Zeroes right off the bat, and went through that just fine.
First playthrough I'll play with it on. Second playthrough I'll turn it off.
playing MGS4, can't wait to play as the Big Boss
Play peace walker, 2nd best game in series and spiritual predecessor and prequel to V.
none reflex mode player here.
Wasn't this feature in Ground Zeroes? Very annoying with the dart gun especially when you can't get a head shot
I had no problem getting head shots and just beat it again on hard yesterday :/
does anybody know if you can still get a headshot if they're wearing helmets? like if you aim for the face instead.
shoot at the crotch and it works too, I can confirm this in Ground Zeroes
does the "shoot at the crotch" really work? i must try it.
You can but you have to hit them square in the face - it's not very easy at all and can take a few tries. That doesn't mean it's not really funny to hear the ting off the helmet off a guy that's right in front of you and wonder what he's thinking as this bearded eye-patch guy is flinging darts at him.
I will leave reflex on at the start(i've loved slo-mo in games since Max Payne). But if i notice at some early point of the game that reflex has saved my ass constantly, instead it being a rare situation, then i'll turn it off.
I use it as needed. If I'm trying to rush to do something quick I'll turn it off but if I'm going no detection then I keep it on in case I didn't notice someone. I like hard modes version in GZ where it lasts a second vs 5 seconds.
