Death Stranding - MULE/Terrorist Advanced Combat Guide

At some point in Death Stranding, you'll need to go toe-to-toe with enemies, and there are a bunch of creative ways you can take down your foes. Death Stranding is available now on PS4 and will be available on PC in 2020.

As you continue through Death Stranding, BTs aren't the only enemies you'll have to worry about. You'll encounter antagonistic humans too, such as MULEs--a band of bandits that steal cargo from anyone who wanders into their territory. There are terrorists too, who are even more dangerous. Dealing with both groups can be tricky, but with the right equipment and strategy you can take out entire encampments.

In the above video, Max Blumenthal details the different weapons and strategies best suited for taking out enemy MULEs and terrorists. You'll encounter MULEs first--as early as Chapter 2--but most of the equipment that you want for dealing with both groups is found in Chapter 3. You may want to beeline it to Chapter 3 as a result. Remember, no matter what affiliation they're a part of, you do not want to kill human enemies. Use less aggressive means when fighting MULEs and terrorists, whether that's hand-to-hand combat or firearms equipped with nonlethal bullets.

If you're not sure you'll enjoy Death Stranding, check out our review. In GameSpot's Death Stranding review, Kallie Plagge writes, "Death Stranding is a hard game to absorb. There are many intertwining threads to its plot, and silly names, corny moments, and heavy exposition belie an otherwise very simple message. That comes through much more clearly in the game's more mundane moments, when you find a desperately-needed ladder left behind by another player or receive a letter from an NPC thanking you for your efforts. It's positive without ignoring pain; in fact, it argues in both its story and its gameplay that adversity itself is what makes things worth doing and life worth living. It's a game that requires patience, compassion, and love, and it's also one we really need right now."
