The Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Companion App, simply named Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes or MGS:GZ in the App Store, is an app made to be used in conjunction with the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. It is non-canonical and holds no story value. One of its functions is that it allows the player to control the iDroid / start screen in-game from their mobile device. The player can also listen to the cassette tapes they have collected and see their in-game stats. The final mode is a minigame where the player manages Mother Base by expanding their bases struts, building troops and sending them on missions. Passing certain criteria in Ground Zeroes unlocks special units for the app.
