Difficulty system in The Phantom Pain explained

I didn't know how to get the chicken hat even though I've heard of it. I've only died about twice and I'm about 17% in.

You just have to die several times in a row. During some of the last skull fights in the game I got really sick of it asking if I wanted to use it every five seconds lol.

If you're going guns blazing, then it'll be difficult obviously. You're basically alerting the entire base to you being there. If you stealth a little (not full on sprints in plain view) / tranq / snipe with a silencer, you'll tend to not have 30+ people chasing you down. Hell, mission 30 involves infiltrating a castle and you can easily S rank it through stealth / sneaking around.

The only ones suffering are those that try to play it like COD (you can do full on assaults, but it tends to hurt a bit more and kill your score).

You know that mission where you need to recover the crippled savant with robot legs? well after failing a lot i just ran with my horse past the gate guard then near the barracks until i reached the big bunker and entered inside, guess what? 0 alert, so yeah um yeah i even kicked a soldier with my horse in that run lol, maybe he died from impact i don't know.
