When Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain debuted in 2015, we learned that its online component had a very ambitious goal: achieve nuclear disarmament, a moment that would be confirmed with a special scene.

Just when the year 2018 started, the scene was activated in the PC versions without meeting the requirements and Konami determined that everything had been the work of a hacker.

From January 25, players of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on Xbox One reported that the nuclear disarmament scene had been activated when they joined the online component. Later, users of PS3 and Xbox 360 reported that the same had happened with their versions of the game and yesterday PS4 players claimed that the scene appeared, confirming the total nuclear disarmament of all players.

As you know, the real possibilities that the special scene is activated are scarce because it is required that there is not a single nuclear arsenal in all the versions of the game, that is to say in PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, so many began to doubt the legitimacy of what happened. Once the reports reached Konami, the developers reported that they are investigating the appearance of the special scene to determine if the requirements were met or treated, as happened on PC, of ​​hacker activity.

So, just waiting to confirm whether nuclear disarmament scene responded to the actions of the players, thus achieving the desired world peace, or was the work of cheaters. In this regard, it is noteworthy that Metal Gear Informer revealed that moments after the end of the scene, a dialogue began in which Revolver Ocelot informs Big Boss of the creation of new nuclear arsenals by other players.
