Death Stranding’s MULEs and their calculated cargo-stealing ways can be annoying to deal with, even over Death Stranding BTs. Operating in small groups and protecting postboxes full of precious cargo, they can be an absolute pain in the behind to deal with, especially when they control areas you need to collect items from and advance through to make progress in the story. In this guide we’re going to give you the lowdown on Death Stranding MULEs, showing you what they can do, what weapons they have and how to deal with MULEs in Death Stranding where possible.
The first thing you need to know about is Death Stranding MULE’s weaponry. Once you’ve found a Death Stranding MULE encampment, get into battle to get a feel for how they fight. They’re really sly and love to hurl electric rods at your feet and vehicles to try and send you tumbling and immobilise your cargo. MULEs don’t actually want to kill you per se, they just want to make you unconscious so they can steal your stuff, hence the cattle prods. Watch your yellow consciousness bar as you fight them and if it gets too high you’ll end up asleep, so be careful.
They can punch you back if you engage in some CQC, but the main thing to worry about are the cattle prods, which hurt your consciousness level. MULEs in Death Stranding can run you over if they’re in a vehicle too, so watch out for that. Here’s everything you need to know about MULEs in Death Stranding.
