I'm having trouble with a mission, and I'm retrying over and over again without any success.

Is there any way to make the mission easier or some sort of assistance that I can call in?

Getting the odds in your favor

Sometimes the game can seem daunting and difficult, sometimes it just feels like you've hit a brick wall.

Here are some features to help you clear your missions.


Having a buddy in the game is awesome. But, sometimes, you need to make sure that you're using the correct one.

For example: there's no reason to be using Quiet if she can't access the area where you're carrying out the mission.


Chicken Hat

If you've struggled with the mission for a long time and had to retry several times then you might already know of this one.

The chicken hat is given automatically to anyone struggling with a mission, but you can also activate it manually in the Game Settings menu.

Chicken Hat

The feature of this very stylish looking hat? You will be a lot harder to spot. And I really mean a lot.

The hat grants a form of quasi-invisibility, rendering you almost invisible.

Please note, however, that use of this hat will restrict the mission score to a maximum of an A grade.

Air Support

Air support is a big, big advantage for you.

You can knock your enemies out with sleeping gas, change weather conditions or disperse smoke.

Think of this as a get-out-of-jail-free card. If you've been on a long mission and see a heavily guarded outpost up ahead. Just use the sleep gas and make them go nighty night.

Air support

Air support, just like the Chicken Hat restricts your mission score to that of an A grade.

    You can also call in your heli to give support with it's miniguns and rockets if you research and equip them. It can be shoot down which will cost a bit to replace though

    Pretty sure that classifies as air support, though. Commented Sep 6, 2015 at 22:19
  • I'll have to check later but I'm pretty sure the chopper doesn't limit your score.

  • Yeah, would be awesome to find out if it's air support or not. Commented Sep 6, 2015 at 22:29

    It isn't in air support but calling it in to help fight has the A rank restriction, I have however had a pickup heli come help be before and that doesn't have the restriction and I'm not sure if it kicks in if it helps
