Quiet may not be the best ally for Snake after all.

Konami Europe announced this morning that a bug can stop all progress in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The issue pops up when Quiet, the silent female sniper with a photosynthetic superhuman virus, is selected as a buddy in missions 29 and 42.

This comes just a few days after Konami’s battle with server connection issues with Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain.

Konami is working on the issue.
