Everyone's favourite sniper from Metal Gear Solid V is now a playable character thanks to the game's latest update.

The first patch in nearly a year, patch 1.17 is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Players can now select Quiet as their character while playing online FOB missions; infiltrating other player's Forward Operating Bases.

The patch also added new difficulty levels to FOB events, and a number of new weapons.

A character that gained abilities through "parasite treatment", Quiet has stealth capability, can jump inhuman heights, and has a special dash ability. The treatment is also the reasoning for her notable fashion, as Quiet breathes through her skin.

Yup.

As a result players will be unable to customise her outfits, 'cause you know... she'd suffocate.
