A key element of Death Stranding‘s gameplay is successfully delivering packages from one point to another, though this is rarely doable without dropping your cargo once or twice due to a bevy of hazards. That’s why we’re here to walk you through how to fix damaged packages.
How to Fix Damaged Packages in Death Stranding
As you make your way through Death Stranding’s World and story, you’ll be tasked with delivering a variety of packages to the world’s characters. How successful your delivery is depends on several factors, including successfully delivering the package, the speed of the delivery and, of course, the condition of your packages upon arrival at their destinations.
While this may seem simple and straight-forward enough, it can be surprisingly easy to damage your package, either because of a fall, enemies attacking you or some other hazard presenting itself.
Fortunately, it is possible to repair the container around your package to prevent further damage should this occur, though you’ll need to be quick about it to minimize the penalty.
How to Use Container Repair Spray
First, open up the inventory and select the package option. Then, select the Offload option to place it on the ground in front of you.
Next, hold right on the D-Pad to open up a menu of items you can use. The item you’ll want to select is the Container Repair Spray, an item obtained early on in the game which can be readily obtained from most settlements.
Select the Repair Spray to equip it. Then, hold L2 to aim and then press R2 to fire it at the package. This will restore the container’s condition, and prevent further damage to the package.
Time needed: 2 minutes.
So, to summarize how you repair packages with Container Repair Spray in Death Stranding.
