Do No Harm

Objective, Missable, Anywhere,

You completed the game without killing any Humans.

You can check whether this is still valid for you in the stats menu; the "Humans Killed" figure should remain zero.

Only humans dying by your hand count. Other causes of death (including inaction allowing them to die) are fine. Ignoring quests for saving people is fine.

When you have to kill the cook, he will die of blood loss if you disarm the Recycler Charge - still fine!
