Death Stranding is a remarkable open-world game that offers the player a lot of exciting things to do. However, the distances in the game can be pretty big, which means that you need to have the proper transport in order to move around. Apart from fast traveling, which is the quickest way of moving around, there are other types so vehicles that you can use.
One of the most popular ways of exploring the world here is via a bike. They are reasonably easy to get and pretty fast, which makes them a perfect choice. In fact, you will be able to come across your first bike when during Episode 2 when you finally reach the Distribution Center that's located near Capital Knot City.
Having said that, in order for any vehicle to work correctly, there are a couple of things that you need to do. Let's dive in and see how can you make the most out of your vehicle.
Getting your very first bike in Death Stranding
As we mentioned above, you will be able to get your first bike when you finally reach one of the primary Distribution Centers that are west of Capital Knot City. Upon approaching it, you will see that it will be impossible to ride it until it's fully charged. To do that, you need to find a proper Generator so that you can charge it up and use it.
Unfortunately, there are no generators nearby, which means that you can't just grab it and move it to another place. Instead, what you need to do is to continue your main story mission. As soon as you finish the ninth order that's called "Power Supply Unit Delivery," you will be able to unlock a new building called "Wind Farm." If you didn't already guess, this is where you can create your very own Generator by using a level 1 PCC.
When you are done with this order and unlock the Wind Farm, you need to go back to the Distribution Center where you've found the bike. Once you get there, open the PCC near the bike and equip it. After that, just place the Generator close to the bike so that it can start charging up. It will take just a couple of minutes, but once it's done, you will be able to wide your new toy across the empty roads of Death Stranding.
Getting more bikes and other types of vehicles in Death Stranding
Apart from the very first bike that you can get in Episode 2, there are also many other means of transport you can lay your hands on. In fact, one of the most significant downsides of the first bike is that you won't be able to take it when you reach Episode 3. This means that you will be on your own yet again, which translates in hours upon hours of walking until you find a new way to move around.
Luckily, once you start walking around, you will be able to spot a new vehicle pretty easily. If you're interested in finding out how to drive a Mule truck, you will be able to do so because there is a big Mule camp very early on in Episode 3. However, be very careful when you go there because many things could go wrong. If you are interested in finding out more about the mules, check our guide. Once you steal the truck, you should be able to travel around a little bit because they are usually charged.
After this adventure, you will stumble across an immense UCA hub where you will be able to create the bike of your dreams. In order to do that, you must complete Order 23, which goes by the name "Retrieval: System Server." When you are done with it, you will earn two schematic designs - The Reverse Trike Long Rage and the Reverse Trick.
On the other hand, if you are not interested in riding bikes at all, you can get some other vehicles such as Trucks. That said, you will have to complete Order 35 first so that you can get the design for it.
Lastly, you can also find different vehicles that are left by other players in the Garage. This isn't something that happens that often, but it is possible to find some cool cars.
Repairing and recharging your vehicles in Death Stranding
If you remember, the first bike that you come across can't be used until you charge it up. Likewise, this can happen to any other vehicle in Death Stranding. The only way in which you can charge it up is to use a Generator. You can either create your own or use one that's already been created by someone else.
Once you charge the vehicle up, the duration of the charge will depend on where you go. For instance, if you travel through places where there are a lot of rocks, your battery will die a lot faster.
Another thing that you should keep in mind is that the rain can damage the vehicles if you leave them outside. If that happens, you need to take the car to a garage in a UCA center and get it done. Once you go there, just park your vehicle on the big circle that you will find and then go to the Private Room. Once that happens, you will be a cutscene, and when it's over, your car will be up and running again.
That's all you need to know about the different vehicles in Death Stranding. We would advise you to try out different cars and then decide for yourself which one of them works best for you. That said, every single one of them is cool.
