Introduction
Are you tired of having a completely staffed out Combat Platform with every manly face possible but still lack that certain fairer sex with something else than Gunslinger and asthma syndromes?
Then welcome to my Guide where I'll introduce you to the best Prisoner Extraction Side Op, how to get there and how to utilize it.
Unlocking and repeating Prisoner Extraction 09
This Side Op takes place in the Aabe Shifap Ruins (it's where you got ambushed by Quiet) and to replay a Side Op in that area you will have to complete every one that takes place in the Ruins or the adjacent East Guard Post 04.
This is the list of Side Ops you need to complete:
  • Eliminate the Armored Vehicle Unit 11
  • Eliminate the Wandering Puppets 10
  • Extract the Highly-Skilled Soldier 05
  • Eliminate the Heavy Infantry 03
  • Eliminate the Tank Unit 03
Once you complete an Operation, you can immediately head back to your ACC to unlock the next one until you reach Prisoner Extraction 09 and we move over to the next part.
Re-rolling Appearance and Skills
For the following, you'll need a fully upgraded Int-Scope and Stealth Camo. Having some upgraded Armor on Pequod is also recommended.
You really won't need anything else, so conserve your resources.

Select Prisoner Extraction 09 and choose the Landing Zone right in the middle of the Ruins.

Before you leave the Helicopter, activate your Stealth Camo and drop in undetected so the game saves a checkpoint. Pequod will take some fire from snipers but he should make it out safely so don't worry about him.

From your Landing Zone you can already spot the prisoner. Stay cloaked and run up to her to take a look. If you don't like her appearance, return to ACC and restart the whole Operation until you get your preferred face/hair combination so we can move over to the next part.


Now we can focus on getting the exact Skill you want. From the pause menu, select to reload your checkpoint. This won't change her appearance but instead re-roll the stats and special ability. Simply move a few steps from your Landing Zone, scan her and reload the checkpoint until you get lucky.
This prisoner can draw every combat Skill possible and get an S-Rank, but this part is entirely RNG reliant and may take quite a while.

Once you got your dream combination, simply fulton extract the prisoner and return to ACC.

Scratch that, it was just my luck.

Can someone confirm or deny the appearance re-rolling still works? After multiple tries the face and hair are still the same for some weird reason. Is it just my luck? Or did they change something?

How to do it more than one time? Side ops cannot be replayed

Thanks so much!
The cool thing is, if you haven't got Quiet back (completing Mission 11 seven times), you can combine it with getting girls.
So the glitch still works, you start Mission 11 and the prisoner gets extracted without completing the side OP.
So now I have 7 more girls plus Quiet, really nice. For some reason the girls from there are prettier than the girls from the White Mamba mission. Didn't got a black one but even a blonde and only one short haired girl.

I've already completed all the side ops, but it won't let me replay the side op.
