Death Stranding Prepper Rewards - All Unlocks From Preppers

Death Stranding Prepper Rewards - All Unlocks From Preppers

Here's how to unlock new skeletons, gear, and other items from Preppers as rewards in Death Stranding.

All throughout Death Stranding, you can visit Preppers and make deliveries to each one, increasing your bond with them as you go. There's a chance that a Prepper will even give you an upgraded item as a reward if you reach a certain bond level with them. In this Death Stranding Prepper rewards guide, we'll be providing you with a list of all the rewards that certain Preppers will grant you, so you know which outposts are worth time delivering to.

How to Increase Prepper Bond Levels

Perhaps you're wondering how you can best increase your bond level with Preppers to obtain the rewards listed above. It should go without saying that making successful deliveries to a Prepper will result in your bond increasing with them, as they reward you with Likes based on the time you took to make the delivery, as well as the health of the cargo delivered by you.

On top of this, you should also keep an eye out for lost cargo items for Preppers out in the open world. As you're exploring the wilderness of Death Stranding, you might see a lost cargo item on the ground that was meant to be delivered to South Knot City, for example.

Although you can drop this item off at any Prepper or Distribution Center in the game, and entrust it to be delivered by another player, it's far more rewarding if you deliver it to the intended destination yourself. When you reach a Prepper with a lost cargo item, select 'Deliver Lost Cargo' from their delivery terminal menu, and drop off the item that was lost.

Preppers will give you many more Likes for delivering lost cargo, than they would for standard orders. If you want to increase your bond with a certain Prepper as quickly as possible, find a much lost cargo for them as you can around the world, by using your Odradek Scanner while walking around.
