Rain That Accelerates Time

Death Stranding Norman
The Timefall accelerates time for all those it touches. It makes grass grow and wither instantly, and it makes any living things it touches grow old. Animals are shown to instantly die when hit by Timefall.

Why is Timefall Dangerous?

It Damages Sam's Cargo

Timefall accelerates time. Metal decays slowly, but it won't escape decay from the passage of time. Cargo that gets hit by the Timefall will start to rust, and prolonged exposure to it may even lead to the destruction of the cargo and its contents.

BTs Appear During Timefall

What Should I Do During a Timefall?

Immediately Get Out of the Area!

Dilly-dallying during a Timefall will damage cargo. Delivering Cargo in top condition is your priority!

Sneak and Be Silent

Despite their name, Gazers cannot see Sam. Being silent and keeping your distance is your best bet in getting through a BT infested area.

Use Hematic Grenades

Using Hematic Grenades on Gazers that stay on your route can be a good choice. This will provide more options of routes to take, and prevent wasting time looking for a different route in the midst of a Timefall.
