This page only goes over menuing you need to remember. (May contain mistakes)

Do chopper skip on every mission possible, excluding missions that start with cutscenes. (Pitch Dark, Episodes 29-31) Remember to reset from checkpoint if you do chopper skip. Leave mother base always by entering a mission and returning to ACC. (as long as your loading times are fast enough) Use Episode 2 until you unlock Retake the platform. After Combat unit becomes available, you can use combat unit members to eventually upgrade their stats. Keep your combat unit level low so you don't unlock deployment missions.
