Hideo Kojima’s new game may have babies to look after, invisible enemies, and Monster Energy Drink for you to down, but some aspects are more like what you’d expect from a conventional open world game. So that you can stay at peak physical health, here’s everything you need to know about how to sleep in Death Stranding.
Sleeping allows Sam, who you play as, to restore his blood and stamina levels. If his stamina is low, he’ll find it difficult to balance and won’t be able to run.
Blood level is a bit more serious though. If his blood level hits zero, Sam will die. Therefore, it’s important to know how to sleep so that you can get healthy again when you need to.
How to Sleep in Death Stranding
The best thing to do is to go to any outpost or major distribution center and use the terminal there. You can then select to go to Sam’s private room, where sleeping is one of the things you can do there. After a while, Sam will be back to full health.
Alternatively, you can sleep out in the wild. When you’re somewhere safe and flat, you can hold circle to rest, then hold square to sleep.
After a short while, your stamina and blood levels will be refreshed.
If Sam is exhausted at all though, which is shown by some white at the end of the stamina bar, you’ll have to fully rest at a Private Room.
Time needed: 1 minute.
In short, here’s how to sleep in Death Stranding:
- Head to an outpost or distribution center and go to Sam’s private room to sleep.
It’ll restore you blood and stamina levels.
- Or, when out and about, hold circle to rest and then hold square to sleep.
