A new Metal Gear Online mode has made its way onto the game’s servers. Taking inspiration from the existing “Sneaking Mode”, which sees Snake use Octocamo to collect Dog-Tags from warring teams, this mode is a battle of two teams with different gear.

The mode consists of a Sneaking Team and a “Normal” Team going head to head. Like Snake, the Sneaking Team is stealth-equipped (thus virtually invisible) and to win must either eliminate all enemies or return KEROTAN or GA-KO to their goal. The defending team must defeat the sneaking team or keep KEROTAN or GA-KO safe to win.

The defenders needn’t be overwhelmed, since if they spot one of the sneakers the whole sneaking team will be visible for 5 seconds. Moreover, the sneakers will only be able to equip non-lethal weapons, as opposed to the defenders who can use all weapons.

Sneaking Mode was really the only MGO mode to set the game apart from other online games and shout “original”, so we hope this new Team Sneaking mode will be as fruitful.

You can now also select “Headshots Only” for every game mode except Team Sneaking. However, take note, you’ll die if you kill somebody by any other method.


  1. I never heard of anything so original. You’re right, it is shouting, but to me it sounds less like original and more like SPLINTER CELL!

  2. I’m very aware of Splinter Cell’s online modes Krispy. In the current market, this mode is the original gameplay we hoped from MGO – as opposed to Deathmatch/Team Deathmatch etc.

  3. Why would you sneak around instead of just jumping in their faces with your sword? Sneaking is for pussies! Cookigaki is not impressed and does not approve!
