In Death Stranding, you must burn the dead body otherwise if you leave it to decompose then it will explode after 24 hrs
In the game, you’ll find some incinerators. They are located in hill areas of the map and you can identify them easily from the smoke coming out of the chimneys. Here's the step-by-step process to get rid of a dead body in Death Stranding
- Find the closest crematorium on the map (in the central area, this is northwest).
- Get rid of all the items you have on the back (create a storage box nearby if you want to collect them back).
- Wrap the dead body in a bag and put it on your back. Corpses tend to cause imbalance, but at least needless to worry about the condition of the goods. Here, you can use a bike.
Last thing: cremating a body will not bring you anything and killing is definitely a bad idea in DS.
