Five years after the official release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, developed by Hideo Kojima and published by Konami in 2015 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, the players have finally managed to unlock the secret ending of the game, disarming all nuclear warheads within the title.
The secret ending had already been made available on PC about two years ago due to a glitch, but the players decided to organize themselves to officially unlock it in a completely legit way, taking advantage of the reduced number of active players on PlayStation 3.
The online community of the game continues to be very active, and has been trying for years to legitimately earn the secret ending of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on every available platform.
The Steam version of the title currently still has nearly 20,000 nuclear weapons, while the PlayStation 4 version has around 2,500, so it is unlikely that the video will be unlocked soon on these platforms too.
The PlayStation 3 version was probably the easiest to unlock, mainly due to the much lower number of active players on the Sony home console of the last generation.
Again the count of nuclear weapons quickly returned to 40, but the total disarmament lasted long enough to allow the activation of the special scene, which was then uploaded to Youtube by the players.
