5 Tips to Survive the Metal Gear Survive Beta

From January 18 to 22, you and three friends will be able to get your first taste of Metal Gear Survive as beta kicks off. Your objective? Work together to defend a Wormhole Digger from waves of enemies. Oh, and you’ll need to keep each other alive too! Do this well, and you’ll be rewarded with sweet, sweet loot.

Metal Gear Survive is a blast, especially if you’re playing with friends. We’re super excited for you to get a taste of the online co-op this weekend, but wanted to take a moment to make sure you’re fully prepared. This survival thing isn’t easy, you know!

Without further ado, here are a few handy tips you can employ during this weekend’s Metal Gear Survive beta:

1. Spend time in the Staging Area

Like a lobby menu come alive, the Staging Area is where you and your friends come together before transporting into your mission. But don’t go jumping straight in! That would be foolish. Have a look around and you’ll see it has so much to offer. There’s a training area, a space to craft items, and you can even test out weapons/gadgets without having to worry about wasting ammo. Most importantly, you can plan your mission (and have some fun with your friends in the process)…

2. Resources, resources and… more resources!

You’re not going to be able to create any items if you haven’t got the necessary resources. It will also make it tough to defend the Wormhole Digger and complete the objective, so any chance you have to go wandering a bit and gather resources… do it! You’ll have some “free” time at the start and between waves, making these the ideal times to go looking for precious pieces of wood, iron, and other important bits. Remember, break everything that can be broken and gather away. Just keep an eye on your weight!

3. Defend smartly

It might seem like a good idea to just put a barrage of fences to cover all gaps leading the Wormhole Digger, but that won’t get you too far once the bigger waves of enemies start to attack. Instead, it’s better to defend smartly by looking at the arrows telling you the projected route of the nasties and placing defensive items appropriately. Also, don’t place fences too close to each other as they might all go tumbling down at the same if a big group decides to attack. Instead, back up a fence with a low barricade, or get stuck in there yourself and stab through the holes. The ol’ “fence-and-stab” technique, as we call it.

4. Stronger together!

This one ties everything about co-op together. Communicate with your buddies, or at the very least look at what they’re doing so you can tackle the objective in the most efficient way possible. Duplicate fences or (even worse) placing one somewhere that hinders your team (we definitely haven’t done this one, nope) is not the way to go! Work together as a team instead. This is a big part of any co-op game, but it’s essential to succeed in Metal Gear Survive, especially if you want finish the harder missions and earn the best loot!

5. Explore… you never know what you might find

Don’t be scared to go exploring! You can stumble upon some very helpful items between waves (and sometimes even during). The maps are quite sizeable, and resources are not the only things littered around the environment…

That’s all for now — we’ll leave the rest for you to discover and enjoy as you play the beta. Download it this weekend and have fun!
