Death Stranding

Welcome to life after the Death Stranding, folks!

Death Stranding is a game in which you never seem to stop unlocking things, and that’s only gotten worse (or better, if you’re an unlock addict) with the Director’s Cut. So I’m going to walk you through every single unlock in the game.

I will mark every unlock with a category, so that you can do a Ctrl F search to find any items from a specific category. Here’s a full list of categories for easy reference:

  • BB Pod Color
  • Backpack Accessory
  • Backpack Color
  • Backpack Equipment
  • Backpack Patch
  • Blueprint
  • Cap Color
  • Cuff Links Feature
  • Facility Terminal Option
  • Firing Range Drill
  • Hologram
  • Interview Data
  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Frame Color
  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Lens Color
  • Music Track
  • Odradek Feature
  • “Sam” Sunglasses Frame Color
  • “Sam” Sunglasses Lens Color
  • Tool
  • Vehicle Color

Note that this guide is specifically for Death Stranding Director’s Cut, which means it will feature items that weren’t in the original version of the game. I’m also including the Deluxe Edition unlocks in this list, so I’ll mention those where relevant.

So let’s get chasing that cargo high!

“Ludens Mask” Sunglasses

Death Stranding - Ludens Mask

These are unlocked by default, but later on you will be unlocking customization options for them. I’m including them here simply to mention the default color options:

  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Frame Color: Snow White
  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Frame Color: Stealth Black
  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Frame Color: Bridges Orange
  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Frame Color: Navy Blue
  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Frame Color: Blood Red
  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Frame Color: Signal Green
  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Frame Color: Prismatic Purple
  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Lens Color: Black
  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Lens Color: Clear

If you own the Digital Deluxe Edition, you’ll also have access to:

  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Frame Color: Omnireflector
  • “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses Frame Color: Chiral Gold

You will unlock more color options later on.

Firing Range

Death Stranding - Firing Range

The Firing Range is a new feature in Death Stranding Director’s Cut. It allows you to test out weapons before taking them out into the field. Your options at the firing range will continue to expand as you unlock more weapons.

To unlock the Firing Range, simply collect any weapon in the game. I’ve seen other game guides that give contradictory information, but the real way to unlock the Firing Range is to simply acquire any weapon. When and where you unlock it will vary from player to player, though you will certainly have it before you complete Episode 2. The earliest place to unlock the Firing Range is the optional [Order No. 77], while the latest place you’d possibly unlock it would be [Order No. 14] at the end of Episode 2.

I believe unlocking the firing range will also automatically unlock one drill:

  • Firing Range Drill 3: [Strand] Eliminate all MULEs

You can also unlock holograms by completing drills. It seems like you earn holograms every few drills, but I had a lot of variance between my two save files, so it’s hard to say what the exact requirements are for each hologram.

  • Hologram: Ludens Duck: Yellow
  • Hologram: Ludens Duck: Red
  • Hologram: Ludens Duck: Green
  • Hologram: Ludens Duck: Dark Blue
  • Hologram: Ludens Duck: Reddish Brown
  • Hologram: Ludens Duck: White
  • Hologram: Ludens Duck: Brown
  • Hologram: Ludens Duck: Blue

Complete all 28 drills to earn:

  • Backpack Equipment: Spare Ammo Pouch (Lv. 2)

Score an S-rank on all 28 drills to earn:

  • Backpack Patch 50: Like

The Racetrack

Death Stranding - Racetrack

Once you complete [Order No. 35], you should receive a yellow-letter email from Thomas Southerland letting you know about the racetrack option. It’s just to the south of the Timefall Farm, and you’ll have to rebuild it before you can make use of it (just like any other auto-paver option).

To build it, you’ll need:

  • 650 Chiral Crystals
  • 2,240 Metals
  • 1,960 Ceramics

If you play online, you won’t have to do all of this yourself, as other people’s contributions will show up here.

There are a few additional unlocks you can earn here.

Earn S-rank in all four Reverse Trike races to unlock:

  • Hologram: Reverse Trike

Earn S-rank in any Roadster race to unlock:

  • Blueprint: Roadster

Earn S-rank in all four Roadster races to unlock:

  • Blueprint: Roadster: Long Range
  • Hologram: Roadster

Earn S-rank in all four Truck races to unlock:

  • Hologram: Truck

Complete all 12 races to unlock:

  • Backpack Patch 31: Fragile

Order-Specific Unlocks

Now let’s chow down on the real meat of Death Stranding unlocks.

Death Stranding - Half-Life

The PC version of Death Stranding had some additional content in cooperation with Valve, and all of that content is included in the Director’s Cut as well.

During Episode 2, you should receive an email called “[λ] How About Taking a Break in the Private Room?” from Benjamin Hancock. From that point on, you’ll start getting yellow-text emails marked with the Lambda symbol [λ], asking you to recover specific cargo. Each email will give you a vague location for the cargo, and if you find and return it, you’ll get a piece of Valve-related gear.

Note that unlike the Cyberpunk 2077 deliveries, these ones don’t have official delivery requests that need to be activated at a terminal.

[Test Order] [λ] I Want You to Look for Some Lost Cargo

Benjamin Hancock wants you to find a cube that got lost along the river outside Distribution Center West of Capital Knot City. Follow the river to the northeast and you should find it. Bring it back to de Distribution Center West of Capital Knot City to claim your reward.

  • Gordon Glasses
Death Stranding - Gordon Glasses

[Test Order] [λ] Find my Lost Cargo, Please!

Shortly after you complete [Order No. 23], you should receive an email from William Lake asking you to find his Companion Cube, which he lost out by Peter Englert’s shelter. Peter Englert is the guy who you’ll be delivering pizza to once you unlock the pizza delivery missions, in case you’re not sure who you’re looking for.

  • Valve
Death Stranding - Valve

[Test Order] [λ] You’ve Got to Find my Cube!

Once you complete [Order No. 28], you should receive an email from Thomas Southerland asking you to find another Companion Cube. This one should be northwest of Distribution Center South of Lake Knot City in a MULE camp. Surprisingly, it’s just sitting in the camp, and it’s not in a postbox.

  • Blueprint: Gravity Gloves
Death Stranding - Gravity Gloves

[Test Order] [λ] Sorry. More Lost Cargo for You…

Once you complete [Order No. 35], you should get another email from Thomas Southerland asking about a Companion Cube. This one is in the dilapidated factory northwest of the Craftsman’s bunker. Find it, then bring it back to Distribution Center South of Lake Knot City for your reward.

  • Blueprint: Truck (λ Type)
Death Stranding - Half-Truck

[Test Order] [λ] Could You Please Go Look for My Cube?

After completing [Order No. 60], you’ll get an email from the Paleontologist asking you to fetch another Companion Cube. This one is south of the heart-shaped lake in an old ruin that’s crowded with BTs. When you find it, bring it back to the Paleontologist.

This one was the hardest to find for me personally, but none of them are really too difficult if you use your scanner. Here’s a map in case you need it:

Death Stranding - Companion Cube Location

Now just return it to the Paleontologist to claim your reward.

  • Headcrab Cap
Death Stranding - Headcrab Cap

[λ] Have You Been Getting Some Weird Emails…?

Once you complete the game, you’ll get another email with one last request. This one wants you to collect the sixth Companion Cube somewhere beyond the tar belt near Middle Knot City and then incinerate it.

In case you’re not sure where to look, it’s here on the map:

Death Stranding - Final Companion Cube Map

You might need to get creative to get across the tar. I used a jump ramp to hurl myself over, then I built a zip-line to get back (I set up my first zip-line post before I made the jump).

Once you collect the Companion Cube, you’ll need to bring it to Incinerator West of Lake Knot City and chuck it in. Once you do, you’ll unlock your final Half-Life-themed reward.

  • Hologram: Strider (Half-Life: Alyx)
Death Stranding - Strider from Half-Life

And there you go! You’ve completed the Portal/Half-Life deliveries in Death Stranding! You will get a very special email to commemorate all this…

Death Stranding/Cyberpunk 2077 Collaboration Unlocks

Death Stranding - Cyberpunk 2077

The PC version of Death Stranding also brought Cyberpunk 2077-themed items into the game, and those are in the Director’s Cut as well. Just like with the Valve collab items, you’ll receive emails instructing you on what to do. You should look for your first email once you complete [Order No. 24] in Episode 3. You’ll be able to spot these emails, because they have a [V] in the subject line.

Now, a lot of other guides I’ve seen leave out an important detail: The rewards are more than cosmetic. Yes, there’s a bunch of cool Cyberpunk 2077 cosmetic stuff to look at, but you’ll also receive upgrades for your compass that let you hack sensor poles, enemy odradeks, and even enemy trucks.

You hold L1 to bring up your compass, in case you weren’t sure how to do it.

[Recovery Request] [V] Track Down a Chip with a Weird Symbol on It

This email should come from Thomas Southerland once you’ve connected the Distribution Center South of Lake Knot City to the chiral network. He’ll ask you to recover a storage chip that has a weird symbol on it, which he saw out by the crater near South Knot City.

Now, a new order should appear at the terminal at Distribution Center South of Lake Knot City.

[Order No. 71] [V] Recovery: Chip Engraved with a Mysterious Symbol

This order has you recover the chip mentioned in the email. While you might be tempted to think this is way out by South Knot City, it’s actually not that far south of the Distribution Center. Once you’ve returned it, you’ll get some rather unconventional unlocks:

  • “J” has upgraded the compass (you can now choose to have your objective marker displayed at all times)
  • V’s Face Pattern
Death Stranding - Face Pattern

[Recovery Request] [V] Retrieve My Chip from the MULEs

This email should show up once you’ve completed [Order No. 35]. It tells you to pick up a new order at Lake Knot City.

[Order No. 72] [V] Recovery: Chip Stolen by MULEs

Once you receive the email, you can pick up this order at Lake Knot City. It’s going to send you to a MULE camp to recover another memory chip.

  • “J” has upgraded the compass (you can now temporarily disable sensor poles)
  • Blueprint: Reverse Trike: “Yaiba Kusanagi” Type
Death Stranding - Yaiba Kusanagi

[Recovery Request] [V] I’ve Lost Contact with the Porter Who Recovered My Chip

After completing [Order No. 43], you should get this email from your good pal V. This one asks you to check in at the Distribution Center North of Mountain Knot City.

[Order No. 73] [V] Recovery: Missing Porter and Chip

This delivery has you going into MULE territory to recover the lost memory chip. You’ll also have to incinerate the body of the porter, who has died.

  • “J” has upgraded the compass (you can now temporarily short-circuit enemy odradeks)
  • “Johnny” Sunglasses
Death Stranding - Johnny Sunglasses

[Recovery Request] [V] The Porter Had Not One, But Two Chips

You should receive this email after completing [Order No. 46]. As it turns out, the porter you incinerated had another chip, and that chip has now fallen into the hands of MULEs. Once you read this email, you’ll need to head over to Distribution Center North of Mountain Knot City and pick up the delivery marked with a [V].

[Order No. 74] [V] Retrieval: Chip from Terrorist Base

This order sends you back into MULE territory to recover another chip. It’s actually easier than the previous mission, since it doesn’t require you to incinerate a body, but the MULEs are more heavily armed at this point in the game, so you’ll still need to proceed with caution.

  • “J” has upgraded the compass (you can now temporarily short-circuit enemy trucks)
  • Blueprint: Silver Hand
Death Stranding - Silver Hand

[Recovery Request] [V] I Need You to Secure a Chip in BT Country

You should get your next email once you start Episode 8. This one sends you into “BT Country” to get another chip. You can pick up the order at Mountain Knot City.

[Order No. 75] [V] Recovery: Chip from BT Area

This is a pretty simple recovery mission that has you recover a lost memory chip from an area filled with snow and BTs. Thankfully, you should have the cord cutter by this point…

  • “J” has upgraded the compass (compass features now use less battery)
  • Hologram: Trauma Team AV (Cyberpunk 2077)
Death Stranding - Trauma Team

[Recovery Request] [V] My Chip! Grab it Back from the Terrorists!

Once you complete the game, you’ll get another email from your good friend “V.” This one sends you to Distribution Center South of Lake Knot City to pick up the final order.

[Order No. 76] [V] Retrieval: Chip from Terrorist-Occupied Ruins

This order sends you up to the ruined mall north of the Craftsman’s bunker. The good news is that the BTs are gone. The bad news is that terrorists have taken over the mall. You’ll have to pacify all of the terrorists, then pick up the chip at the terminal at the Ruined Shelter. Note that you won’t be able to use the terminal until all of the enemies have been knocked out.

Now just bring the chip back to Distribution Center South of Lake Knot City to claim your reward.

  • Hologram: Creator (Cyberpunk 2077)
  • Holgram: Jackie Wells (Cyberpunk 2077)
  • “J” has upgraded the compass; its features now have increased range

Eastern Region UCA Facility Unlocks

Now we’re getting into the UCA facility unlocks. There are a few things to know before going into this section. First of all, if you earn a reward early — say you earn a “Sam” sunglasses color before you pick up the sunglasses — that reward will be held until the next star level. This means you’ll want to hold off on getting five stars with any facility before the end of Episode 3, when you unlock the backpack customization options. Otherwise, it’s possible that you’ll miss out on the 5-Star rewards (such as the backpack patch).

Also, I’m going to list unlocks at the lowest possible star level that I’ve been successful at unlocking a reward at. It is possible that you can unlock some rewards earlier than when they’re listed here, but I think it’s pretty unlikely.

Once you’ve gotten Distribution Center North of Mountain Knot City connected to the UCA, you should start seeing packages scattered around the area that are addressed to the Novelist’s Son. To interact with him, you must pick up one of these packages and deliver it to him.

Now, some people say that the Novelist’s Son is a bit finnicky. You’ll have to find his missing packages in the wild if you want to increase his connection rating, with the added quirk that you must also read all his emails in between drop-offs. You won’t be able to increase his connection rating beyond a certain point unless you’ve read all those doggone emails.

So the best way to do this is to bring him a package, then go sleep in a private room. If you get an email, read it, then repeat the process. If you don’t, well, try sleeping again to see if you can get the email to show up in your inbox. Or, worst-case scenario, you could spend some time working on something else in the game for a while to see if the email eventually shows up.

However, in the Director’s Cut, I never had any issues with the Novelist’s Son. It’s possible this was addressed in the update, or that it’s a bug that only affects certain users. If you’re having trouble with his connection level not increasing, just make sure you read his emails.

And if you’re struggling to find the Novelist’s Son, here’s where he is on the map:

Death Stranding - Novelist's Son Map

He will connect to the chiral network once you reach one star, and he’ll join the UCA at two stars.

Mountain Knot City – Aaron Hill

Death Stranding - Aaron Hill

You’ll first head to Mountain Knot City for [Order No. 44] as part of Episode 5. Of course, it’s not going to be easy to convince Lockne to join the UCA, because nothing is ever easy in Death Stranding. But once you complete [Order No. 46] at the end of Episode 5, she’ll be ready to connect.

The Roboticist

Death Stranding - Roboticist

Once you’ve traveled up to Mountain Knot City for [Order No. 44], you can head up into the mountains to the southeast. You’ll start seeing packages addressed to the Roboticist. If you can find her and return one of her packages, she’ll be glad to join the chiral network and the UCA.

Due south of Mountain Knot City is a lake that looks like an upside-down heart. The Roboticist is to the east of it. Here’s a map to help you find it:

Death Stranding - Roboticist Map

Of course, you could also wait until Episode 6, in which you’ll be sent out to the Roboticist’s bunker as part of the main story.

The Doctor

Death Stranding - Doctor

You’ll be introduced to the Doctor at the beginning of Episode 6, though you’ll start finding packages addressed to the Doctor before that. You can activate the facility early if you want, or you can wait until Episode 6 to start working on it. The Doctor will join the UCA upon your first delivery.

The Mountaineer

[Order No. 49] in Episode 6 will take you to the Mountaineer, but you’ll need to do [Order No. 50] before he’ll connect to the network and join the UCA.

The First Prepper

Death Stranding - First Prepper

The First Prepper is an optional bunker that you might stumble upon while you’re exploring the mountains in Episodes 6 and 8. Like the Novelist’s Son, people claim that this one can be finnicky, so you should always read his emails when they pop if you want to continue to progress his connection level. Unlike the Novelist’s Son, I actually did have some struggles with this in Director’s Cut, and reading the emails definitely seems to help.

The First Prepper will connect to the network at one star, and he’ll join the UCA at two stars.

You’ll find his bunker south of the Spiritualist and slightly to the north of where Deadman’s cabin was. Here it is on a map:

Death Stranding - First Prepper

  • Santa Hat

  • UCA Terminal options

The Paleontologist will occasionally gift you with lightweight resources after making successful deliveries.

Veteran Porter

The Veteran Porter is the last optional facility you’ll find. As you might suspect, he’s a bit reluctant to join the UCA, but a few deliveries ought to change his mind. At one star, he’ll connect to the chiral network, and at two he’ll join.

Like the Novelist’s Son and the First Prepper, the Veteran Porter’s connection progress will be gated behind emails. What makes this one especially bad, however, is that there are so few deliveries going to him, and so few packages to find in the wild. This one could take you some time.

The Veteran Porter is east of the Paleontologist and southeast of the Geologist. In case you want to see that on a map, it’s right here:

Death Stranding - Veteran Porter Location

1 Star

  • Vehicle Color: Omnireflector

2 Stars

Chiral Relay

This is the last station in the Central Region, and it doesn’t have a star level.

Western Region

Distribution Center North of Edge Knot City

This facility doesn’t have a star level. Bring it into the UCA to unlock:

  • Blueprint: Remote-Detonation Grenade Launcher

Memory Chip Unlocks

Most Memory Chips will unlock data in your log, but there are a few that unlock more than that. I will skip the ones that don’t have additional unlocks attached to them for the sake of this already massive guide (but here’s a Memory Chip guide if you really want one).

So let’s look specifically at the ones that have additional unlocks:

Memory Chip 31 – Reverse Trike: “Ride” Type

This memory chip actually unlocks a new blueprint. Check out the video above to see the exact location. For turning it in, you’ll unlock:

  • Blueprint: Reverse Trike: “Ride” Type

Memory Chip 54 – An Unknown Man’s Journal: Part 1

You’ll find this memory chip near the ruined shelter to the north of the Craftsman’s bunker. If you want to know the specific location for this memory chip, check out the video above.

  • Interview Data: Journal #1
  • Interview Data: Journal #2
  • Interview Data: Journal #3
  • Interview Data: Journal #4

Memory Chip 55 – An Unknown Man’s Journal: Part 2

You’ll find this memory chip in the ruins outside South Knot City. To see the exact location, check out the video above. For turning it in, you will unlock:

  • Interview Data: Journal #5
  • Interview Data: Journal #6
  • Interview Data: Journal #7
  • Interview Data: Journal #8
  • Interview Data: Journal #9

Memory Chip 56 – An Unknown Man’s Journal: Part 3

When you complete the optional [Order No. 66], you’ll deliver one last pizza to Peter Englert. Once this last delivery is available to you, the bunker will be unlocked and you can go inside it. You’ll find the memory chip on a desk inside this bunker.

Lucy’s Report

There are additional interviews that you’ll unlock by completing certain Standard Orders, including Lucy’s Report. This is a series of 13 interviews. You’ll unlock the first eight by doing specific deliveries throughout the game. The rest of them will be unlocked in post-game (see the next section).

These orders won’t always be available, but the game tends to cycle through available orders. If you can’t find a specific one, pick up some of the other orders at that facility, deliver them, then check back to see if new orders are available. It might take a little time, but if you’re persistent and you know where to look, it shouldn’t be difficult to unlock all of Lucy’s Report.

Post-Game Interviews

Aside from Lucy’s report, you’ll also be unlocking more interviews. Some people claim that these require you to get Legend, Legend of Legends, or Legend of Legend of Legends ratings in order to get these interviews, but that wasn’t the case for me.

I don’t know the exact number of deliveries to trigger each batch, but I was earning these at a rapid clip. I’m also not sure if the order you unlock these in is randomized at all. I’ve just separated them into batches so you can see what interview data is out there.
