Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain also features a Chicken Hat mode that can be toggled in the options menu. This essentially turns the game into easy mode. If you are dying a lot in some of the missions, you can be prompted by the game to wear this Chicken Hat. This also restricts the mission ranking to an A rank.
