In Death Stranding, the rate at which Sam obtains new gear and weapons is tied directly to his quest to reconnect America by bringing each facility and prepper onto the Chiral Network. As you expand your coverage westward, the people you meet will aid you in your quest by granting you new gear, fabrication plans, and other items to help continue your quest.
Below you’ll find a list of the different equipment, items, and other tools you can unlock over the course of your adventure, in the order that you will find and connect with the different Knot Cities, Facilities, and Preppers.
