How to Unlock Gears and Shelters in Death Stranding?

by Ashley Miller Engineer

Death Stranding packs tons of challenges and one of the biggest challenges is the bad weather, also known as Timefall in the game. It means rain-filled with Chiralium and acid that deals massive damage on your cargo. Most importantly, it is also working as a warning sign of the arrival of BTs as Chiralium in the rain attracts them. What is BTs? Well, BTs or Beached Things are the invisible creatures that will try to hit and damage the cargo. So, try to avoid them as much as you can along with Timefall by locating shelter in the game.

To overcome the strange weather issue, Timefall shelters are the only possible way you can use in Death Stranding. For that, you need to complete the order mission 27 in Episode 3 to avail of new technology. By using them, you will not only be able to find Timefall shelter but also can see the weather forecast and travel accordingly.

The game also allows building your shelter during the rain by delivering a Chiralium device at the Weather Station. By completing this order mission, players will unlock PCC level 2 and can build a Timefall shelter using it. Other than that, gamers will also face another worse version of rain i.e., Snow. It will force you to move slow and also damage your cargo even quicker than rain. In case you do not have the technology to overcome the snow problem, then it is better to avoid using the Timefall shelter. Otherwise, you will end up damaging cargo during the mission.
