Bad news, fraudulent network connectors: Your days of slowing down Metal Gear Online are over! Konami has issued a -- way past-due -- patch for the online component of MGS4, which detects "fraudulent" connections and (we assume) blocks them, freeing up all kinds bandwidth for ... hello ... anybody?

  • "The patch will be able to detect fraudulent network connections, which will slow down the gameplay during the session."
Other changes include:
  • Drebin Points for weapons have been adjusted.
  • Weapon parameters have been adjusted.
  • Skill parameters have been adjusted.
  • Skills for Unique Characters have been adjusted.
  • Player Character movement has been increased overall.
