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.
