About this mod

Let the legend come back to life. Put those nine years behind you, and return as Big Boss.

Permissions and credits

The mod allows you to play as the true Big Boss, with either the classic mullet or the ponytail. You can also choose between two arm styles to replace the bionic arm, if you wish. Installing any of the head files also installs an alternate character select icon.


Install the files you wish to install using Snakebite. There are 5 different files, the hair files (ponytail, mullet) and the arm files (undersuit arms or bare arms). The joint hair file uses the ponytail with some outfits and the mullet with others. Check the images tab to see which outfits use which hairstyle. If you wish to keep the bionic arms, simply don't install an arm file. 

Q: "How do I install this?" 
A: With Snakebite.

Q: "Can I install manually?"
A: No.

Q: "Does this replace Snake, or the Avatar?"
A: This replaces Snake. However, installing one of the arms files will replace the arms for the avatar, too. There is currently no way to get around this.

Q: "Will you pleeeeeeeeeeease add __________?"
A: No. 

Q: "Your mod is incompatible with ____________, fix it!"
A: Unless it's Infinite Heaven, we don't care.

Q: "Snake still has a bionic arm, what gives?" 
A: This mod doesn't replace the blast or rocket arm. This is by design. 


You are free to use any part of TMWSTW as a base for your own mods, as long as credit is given to Team Naked. However, redistributing the arm files unedited isn't allowed. If your mod requires those files, direct downloaders here. 


None of these mods are required to enjoy The Man Who Sold the World, but they offer a bit of variety if you're wishing to spice things up.
