Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker S Ranked Soldiers Guide
Alright Big Boss, to build up our Mother Base and to develop newer items and weapons we need the best of the best. S Ranked Soldiers are hard to come by, but well worth the search. I’ve compiled a list of locations where you can find the men and women we need. Good luck Boss.

Notation: All you can find in the field is A ranked Soldiers. To Acquire S Ranked Soldiers you need to have a high Heroism ranking (53,000). You can achieve this by A) completing various Insignias and Achievements or B) grinding levels with a lot of troops. Simply holding them up worked well for me.
Once you have the proper amount of Heroism just go to the Recruit menu and you’ll start getting S ranked Soldiers.
Mission: Extra Ops 49
Notation: There are three POWs located in this mission, 1 will give you an S rank on Intel, one will give you an S ranked on R&D. Each area has one guy, the first one is located on the catwalk and the other two are directly in your path.
Mission: Extra Ops 46
Notation: He is the second guy you will encounter in the first area. I recommend grinding this mission with the stealth camo.
Mission: Extra Op 26, Extra Op 50
Notation: 26) POW 50) Soldier on bridge in El Cenagal Ravine. Watch out there are two of them.
Mission: Rescue Chico, Pursue Jungle Train, Destroy Barricade
Notation: The Fulton Canon is required to acquire S ranked Intel units. In each of the mission they are the snipers in Camino De Lava Junction. I recommend the Destroy Baricade mission as you can snag 2 S Ranked Intel units instead of 1 that the other two provide.
