Death Stranding has not much violence in its world. Killing someone in Death Stranding is discouraged and a scientific reason is given for it. It is said that by killing the spirit of the person, they can return in the form of BT. That is If the body of the person you killed is not buried soon. Their body can also cause a Voidout, which is a huge explosion that leaves a carter-sized hole in its wake. In Death Stranding the only people who use firearms are a separatist group called Homo Demens.
