I was on my way to a mission objective, when I was suddenly jumped by assassins. Luckily, a couple of friendly thugs helped me kill them.
After I killed them all, I dumped their bodies in the same, nearby location (near where the thugs are). I did one of my mission's objectives, and when I came back, the bodies (or body, rather, as only a single corpse was left) are now this:
Is this a bad thing? Do rat-eaten corpses have an additional effect on Chaos levels or other effects on the game (compared to if the corpses didn't get eaten)?
How do I prevent rats from eating a corpse? (Where should I leave the corpses?) Also, are unconscious bodies also vulnerable to being eaten by rats?
