Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain codenames and emblems unlock guide to walk you through codenames and emblems unlock requirement.

Your logo defines who and what your company stands for. Well, not always, especially not when it’s a Chicken flanked by a heart.

Still though, your logo in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is your identity, and it is often a way of showing other players during FOB operations of how far you’re into the game and how good you are.

MGSV: Phantom Pain Codenames and Emblems

For this reason, it’s often cool to try to give yourself goals to acquire these logos. This guide goes through the various parts of the logos you can acquire by completing certain objectives/requirements. Take a look at them.

Codenames

Codenames are titles that you unlock at the end of missions. However, they are not necessarily tied to the mission you receive them in, as majority of the codenames’ conditions are based on the previous three missions.

Earning Codenames has no real practical use except for earning certain Emblems, but it’s always a nice display of power and skill during FOB instances.

Emblems (Back)

Emblems are personal insignias that are displayed on your character and parts of facilities, helicopters, and Buddies with you. For this reason, having a nice, personally customized Emblem is never too bad.

You can customize your Emblem at the Aerial Command Center (while you’re riding your chopper between missions). The Emblem Comes in four parts: back pattern, front pattern, and two words/digits.
