This Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain mod lets you play in first-person mode

Real_Mindmaster has shared an updated version of MXMSTR’s first-person mod for Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. This mod works with the game’s latest version (v1.0.12.0) and lets you experience the whole game from a first-person perspective.

As Real_Mindmaster noted, this is a Snakebite file, meaning that players will have to unpack it, install it via Snakebite and start the game. In order to enable the first-person perspective, players will have to press the down arrow and V (or the button you have assigned for zooming) simultaneously. In order to disable it and return to the third-person perspective, players will have to press the up arrow and V.

This First Person mod for Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is pretty cool as it will let you experience this latest Metal Gear Solid game from a different perspective. Which, funnily enough, reminds me of the TGS 2005 trailer for MGS4 (in which Kojima gave a glimpse of what a MGS game in FPS could have looked like).

Have fun everyone!
