The Stranded are the humans that couldn't get to the Jacinto Plateau during Emergence Day and were left behind. They are considered thieves by the COGs due to their habit of stealing equipment off dead bodies, and they see the COG as "facist pigs" for leaving them behind.
Strategic dismemberment allows players to separate an enemy's limbs from its body without killing it, disabling limb-specific functions.
