Collectibles are a big part of Death Stranding and they carry a lot of importance. Here’s how you can find all Preppers, Gear, and Upgrades in the game.
In order to unlock more gears and upgrades in Death Stranding, it is necessary to find all the preppers. By getting new equipment, life slowly gets easier in the game. Things like weapons, floating carrier devices and exoskeleton take all the pain out of walking in the world.
You can get different rewards from cities and preppers you meet by delivering them their desired things. Preppers upgrade your current equipment and any cosmetics.
Everything in the game is unlocked by playing the story, so it’s better to stick with the story. Some of the equipment like the exoskeleton makes the rough ground easier to walk for Sam. It is better if you unlock it before you walk for hours on side missions.

Some of the things are optional for you to find and pick during the story. One such example is the level 2 Floating Carrier device which can take more weight but it’s not necessary compared to the default level floating carrier you can get in the main mission. You can also get the modification options like colors and materials which can be gained by making a strong relationship with the preppers and craftsman.
Because of your strong relationship with various people by searching for things and making many deliveries, you can unlock extra things. Some random characters also give you many useful items, so it is important to know which items are given by which characters so you can work on improving your relationship with them. Here’s a useful list to find out which character has the best items.
You can generally unlock the following new items when you hit relationship level 5 with any character.
