After years of waiting, Death Stranding has finally been released, bringing with it some interesting gameplay mechanics. One of Death Stranding’s most prominent features is that if you have the right materials, you are able to craft items and weapons. This crafting guide covers all you need to know regarding the crafting process in Death Stranding, as well as the different items that can be crafted.
Death Stranding Crafting Recipes
You need a couple of things before you can craft anything in Death Stranding. You will obviously need a certain amount of specific materials to craft any item and understand the crafting process.
The Crafting process can be only carried out at various delivery terminals where you find the Chiral Printer. You need to make sure that is a strong Chiral Connection available so that the Printer can connect to the server and craft the items you want.
Once you have the required materials you can interact with the Chiral Printer and use the ‘’Fabricate Equipment’’ command that pops up to start crafting
There are several different categories of items that can be crafted in the game. We’ve listed them all, along with their required materials.
Different material including Resins, Chiral Crystals, Metals, Special Alloys and other will be required to craft the recipes you learn through the story progression, therefore, you need to farm them.
One way of doing that is by using the Odradek Scanner which is opened with R1. The Scanner finds the containers in the nearby vicinity containing any materials which you can carry to the nearby distribution center.
At the distribution center, you can also claim materials in hefty amounts by interacting with the “Claim Materials” option on the menu, the same menu where you find the Fabrication command.
Specifically for the Chiral Crystals, the areas of interest will be where Timefall is happening! When you are in such areas, you will see Chiral Crystal Deposits forming on the ground in Abundance. You can harvest them using one of the tools you get early in the game
These help you reach places that would be hard to reach otherwise.
