  • How many Alternative/VR Missions are there in MGS2? Django Reinhardt

    I'm considering going for the "Virtually Impossible" achievement, but it would nice to know how much I need to do. If your answer broke down the number of missions per character and/sub-group that would be great.

    Thanks!

  • There are 511.

Related questions and answers
  • I'm about halfway through the campaign, and realized that I haven't gotten all of the research points from all of the previous missions. I'd really like to get those points (just for completeness)- can I replay the earlier missions and get these points added to my research in the laboratory?

  • I have a character with 8 missions and 6 kills, and still she is a rookie. Some seem to get promoted, while others get sent on missions, make kills, and yet stay as rookies. Is this a bug, or is there something else controlling how soldiers get promoted? I am playing on Classic difficulty.

  • , and receiving storyline missions from the wrong corporation makes it even slower. The storyline missions are responsible for a large part of the total standing gains, I don't want to waste them on a meaningless corporation. How is the corporation for the storyline mission determined? How can I make sure to receive a storyline mission of the same corporation I'm running missions for? How would this work specifically if I want to gain standing for the Emperor Family corporation and can only fly distribution missions?

  • I seem to recall reading somewhere that you were limited to only two missions at a time, but since many of the missions seem to not be completable when you receive them, this doesn't seem to make much sense. What are the limits in terms of taking missions? What happens if you reach that limit and then talk to someone that would normally give you a mission? Is there a way to review the missions that you are currently on?

  • There are some optional missions where you have to kill some targets (yellow targets) without been discovered. Theses missions are ridiculously harder for me than others of the same levels, but I've achieved it spending a lot of time hiding from guards (red targets) and after using the hidden blade to kill the target. The problem is that in block 5, these missions have maximum time and I don't know how to kill the yellow targets faster without been discovered. Any idea?

  • missions without standing loss once every four hours. If I could decline missions more often, it would make it easier to optimize the routes and get misssions that are close together. What I'd like to know is how much standing I lose when declining a mission, that would make it easier to gauge how often I can decline missions without hurting my standings long-term. How much faction, corporation and agent standing do I lose for declining a mission? How much is that in comparison to the standings I gain, so what percentage of missions can I decline and have my standings stable over time?

  • With the exception of the missions that explicitly give you a choice and make it obvious that one mission will prevent another (specifically, not different missions, just different objectives/rewards etc) are there any missions that, by choosing to embark on them, prevent you from performing other missions? Without giving away any spoilers, there is specifically one instance I can think of in the campaign where I could see this happening, but it was never explicitly stated that choosing one mission over the other would create a permanent fork in the story line. Does anybody know for sure

  • I have preordered Far cry 3 on steam but I can't seem to find where the extra missions are. Anyone know how to get access to the extra missions? Thanks

  • I read that the new GTA Online patch (1.04) reduces the payouts for missions. How has the payout changed?

    I need some help in resolving this issue. I have GTA5 for the Xbox. I've been playing for the past week or so and the story mode is around 15 percent done. (I've unlocked the 3 guys: Michael, Franklin, and Trevor) I turned on my Xbox this morning and started playing gta5. I realized that I was setback to around 4.2 percent done with missions and all I had was Franklin. I couldn't even access any other people because I would have to redo all of the missions. I've tried turning off my Xbox, changing accounts, etc. Nothing seems to work. Anyone have the same problem? Any feedback
