Support markers are devices that are utilized to request aid from allies for a variety of reasons, such as supply refills after running out of ammunition or food supplies during the heat of combat, or a request to take out the enemy via an air strike.

Types

Support strike marker

During the 1974 Peace Walker Incident, Big Boss and his private military group, Militaires Sans Frontieres, procured design specs for a placeable version of the support strike marker shortly after rescuing Chico from the recently made Peace Sentinel prison in the Aldea de los Despiertos village. They later procured design specs and developed a throwable version of the strike marker, and later procured design specs for gun versions resembling the EZ Gun. These were primarily utilized by the MSF in requesting aid from Mother Base in taking down enemies via an air raid.

These were primarily utilized by the MSF to request refills in supplies during their missions. Upon activation, a cardboard box containing supplies will be sent via a chopper and a Fulton balloon, the latter of which will detonate at the precise location of the beacon's signal source.

Gameplay

If a Support Supply Marker is activated when an enemy is right on top of the beacon, the cardboard box will fall on top of the soldier, knocking him unconscious. Similarly, if the player is right underneath the beacon when the supply packages arrive, the player will lose consciousness due to their PSYCHE gauge depleting as a result.
