If you're looking for Death Stranding fast travel, then you're probably getting tired of plodding or riding over long distances every time you want to get anywhere. Ok yes, that is the point of the game, but sometimes you just need to go from A to B without an extended walk in the middle. Now, fast travel is possible, but an important point to note is that you can't carry anything while doing it in Death Stranding, so forget those dreams of teleporting deliveries straight to their destination. You'll have to get a few hours into the campaign at least before you can unlock it, so follow our guide and we'll explain how to unlock the Death Stranding fast travel system, along with what it can and can’t be used for.

To unlock the Death Stranding fast travel system you have to reach the start of Chapter 3 in the story, which will involve you moving on from the Eastern Region to the Central Region via Port Knot City. You may be tempted to dilly dally in the Eastern Region and five-star all of the preppers, but trust us when we say that’s not worth it. Plus you can always come back and do it when you have better equipment from the Central Region (and of course, fast travel.)

When you land in the Central Region you should be treated to a number of cutscenes and story content. Once you escape the cinematics, the game will let you know that you can now use your private room to perform a Fragile Jump, which is Death Stranding’s term for the fast travel system. Again, we’ll keep things light to save on spoilers, but head down there for the next part of this guide.

To fast travel in Death Stranding all you have to do is descend into your Private Room and look around until you see Fragile’s umbrella on the wall. Hit square on the prompt to be taken to the fast travel menu, where the game will show you all of the  locations to which you can now fast travel. It’s as simple as that!

Sam can fast travel to any location (across both regions) where he has previously visited which has a private room. This also takes into account player-built Safe House structures which are strewn across the landscape. It’s worth considering where you could place a Safe House if there are no private rooms in between a set of preppers. 

Beyond that, you’re now free to fast travel as much as you’d like. Now you can head back to the Eastern Region and clean up your leftover deliveries!
