Death Stranding - Chapter 2 Walkthrough (No Commentary)

In Episode 2, Sam journeys through several significant early missions to help reconnect various cities to the main chiral network, all while avoiding BT's and hostile MULE's. Along the way we unlock various upgrades to help make our journey easier, and show how to repair the invaluable Reverse Trike, an early game vehicle letting you offload cargo to help navigate the dangerous terrain with ease.

If you're struggling with Death Stranding, GameSpot is putting together a full walkthrough of the game. In the video above, Sam Hancock plays through Chapter 2 of Death Stranding's main campaign. Having trouble starting out? Check out her walkthrough of Chapter 1.

In Chapter 2, you have to make numerous journeys across Death Stranding's beautiful landscape, all while avoiding BTs and hostile MULEs. You can make your journey a little faster, however, by repairing and then riding the Reverse Trike--the first vehicle you can acquire in Death Stranding. We recommend doing so, especially since you should try to speed through Chapter 2 as quickly as possible to get to the much more enjoyable Chapter 3. That's when Death Stranding really opens up.

We acknowledge that not all people are visual learners. If you're not a huge fan of video walkthroughs and would prefer a written one, we have you covered. Edmond Tran is putting together a text-based version of GameSpot's complete Death Stranding walkthrough.

In GameSpot's Death Stranding review, Kallie Plagge wrote, "Death Stranding is a hard game to absorb. There are many intertwining threads to its plot, and silly names, corny moments, and heavy exposition belie an otherwise very simple message. That comes through much more clearly in the game's more mundane moments, when you find a desperately-needed ladder left behind by another player or receive a letter from an NPC thanking you for your efforts. It's positive without ignoring pain; in fact, it argues in both its story and its gameplay that adversity itself is what makes things worth doing and life worth living. It's a game that requires patience, compassion, and love, and it's also one we really need right now."
