    I am creating 2d game. Player needs to be with Rigidbody2D Kinematic. So, he can go through all walls.
    I need to create map borders. How should I do this? Player ignores all empty objects with collider and rigidbody2D..

    Layer Collision Matrix all checked.

    The whole point of a Kinematic Rigidbody2D is that it doesn't reaction to collisions, gravity, user-forces etc. In short, it doesn't have a collision response and you move it using MovePosition/MoveRotation.

    It's up to you to stop it moving outside of the region you define using whatever method you choose such as checking its position within the rectangular game region or using physics queries to check if it can move before asking it to move.

    This sounds like you're not understanding what a Kinematic Rigidbody2D does but if that's not the case then maybe you can explain some more about what's not working.
