The fastest way to grow Metal Gear Solid 5's Mother Base


"Metal Gear Solid 5 isn't just a stellar free-form stealth-action game; it's also one hell of a military base management sim. It makes sense - as Big Boss and leader of the Diamond Dogs, it's up to you to manage the development of your home, Mother Base, as well as the staff that runs it. It's a lot to take in at first, but it's not as complicated as you think; most of your day-to-day operations are handled through your iDroid, and happen in the background while you play."

Some helpful info there, thanks.

"Only resources procured online are susceptible to theft, so you don't have to worry about losing stuff you earn from the single-player game."

This is what I wanted to know. I have no interest in doing FOB missions and I have no interest in others invading my base, Ive been playing the game in offline mode this whole time other than checking in to get my daily reward.

I do however want to build a new FOB so I can get more platforms and a larger staff. It seemed unfair to me that I was not going to be able to get Lvl 60 R&D because I dont like playing online.

If Im to understand this properly I wont get invaded til Ive done it to someone else first, or at least if I do there will be nothing for anyone to steal as they cant take anything I got in the single player game? I guess if I send squads out to online missions thats up for grabs but everything else is mine to keep? Thats fine with me. Thanks.

Can't be right. I have never initiated an fob invasion first, I have only retaliated. I was still invaded. Besides, how would the first fob invasion have gone if you couldn't invade anyone that has yet to do so themselves. Theoretically no one would have been available to invade

It also helps to go back to Motherbase and walk around. A lot of people just work from the iDroid, but letting the AI see you at Motherbase actually affects troop morale level and thus everything else. They need to see Big Boss to maintain morale.
