Death Stranding : Guide to unlock each trophy in the game
The trophy lis Death Stranding t includes 1 Platinum, 1 Gold, 2 Silver and 59 Bronzes. To take all the trophies you need over 150 hours of game time in total, this is because you need to maximize and grow all the UCA structures present to connect.

Death Stranding : Strategic guide to trophies (Platinum, 100% structures, chips)

Complete a standard order.
Complete 36 standard orders.
This type of deliveries are unlocked after Order 9 of the story mode, they can then be selected from the Terminals. They are delivery missions just like normal main missions, with the difference that they are optional. We can consider them real side missions. If you aim for platinum you can "combine" these orders both with the routes provided by the story mode and while maximizing all the structures. After the story mode these orders will continue to appear indefinitely, just make 36 to get the related trophy.
You can keep track of standard deliveries made from the menu: World Map in the Orders section.
The origin of a legend
Complete 10 premium deliveries with a "Legend" or "Legend of Legends" rating in each individual category. See next trophy.
The growth of a legend (Gold)
Complete 20 premium deliveries with a "Legend of Legends" rating in all categories. This trophy is much more complex than it looks:
First you will need to unlock premium deliveries by passing order 24 in history mode. Once you're done, access any terminal and press on a standard order, then select the related premium delivery that will have more difficult requirements to meet
How to get the rating Legend of legends in Death Stranding ?
The Legend of Legends rating is only unlocked by playing at the "Difficult" difficulty level and obtaining the S grade in missions. At lower difficulty levels you won't get it.
How to get the S grade in all missions of Death Stranding ?
Fortunately, the difficulty makes absolutely no difference for deliveries, the only thing that changes is the difficulty in clashes with bosses and enemies that will inflict you much more damage, but there are none during deliveries. So for the actual transport there is no difference. For this reason, we recommend that you always play difficult and reduce to easy if you have problems with bosses.
What does Legend of Legends mean in all categories?
Basically there is a total of 4 categories in which to obtain the Legend of Legends rating: Conditions, Quantity, Miscellaneous and Time. These are the categories with which deliveries are divided:
- Conditions - Often indicated with "Conditions of Charge" or "Fragile Order" with Often indicated with "Quantity" in yellow.
- Miscellaneous - Often indicated with the word "Collection" by Often indicated with the timing to be met in yellow.
You can always keep track of your progress in the menu: World Map in the Premium Orders section.
Remember that the quests in the story do not count for this trophy, but only the premium version of the standard deliveries. Also, repeating a premium delivery getting the maximum score will not increase the counter for the trophy, you will have to finish with the maximum score 20 different premium quests.
A friendly hand
Issue your first request for supplies. Online trophy
Once connected to the game servers, press options and enter the supply requests menu. Select an object and a destination. This will send a supply request to other online players who can deliver the requested item to you. Simply post the supply request to unlock the trophy (no need to collect supplies). Supply requests are unlocked during episode 2, after completing the Order 10 arrived at the Wind Park.
The robotic revolution
Complete a standard order with a robot courier.
The robot couriers are unlocked in episode 3 after order 24. Access a terminal and choose "Standard orders (robot delivery)". The completion of the order by the robot will take some time, usually about 1 hour. After that time, the mission will not be completed instantly. On the contrary, it will be completed when you complete another order or access a terminal. The trophy will be unlocked once the robot's delivery prize screen is displayed.
Build your first structure (there are also signs, ladders and climbing pitons).
During Order No. 4 in Episode 2, you will be shown how to build a sign.
Build at least one structure of any kind (including signs, ladders and climbing pitons).
Advanced version of the previous trophy, requires you to create one of the following structures at least once:
- Sign (hold down L1 and press triangle to place signs everywhere)
- Timefall Shelter
- P.O. Box
You will be able to unlock all these structures by simply moving forward in history.
Death Stranding Tricks not to consume resources
If you don't want to waste resources on building these structures you can use this trick: make a manual rescue in advance, build the structure you need for the trophy and then reload the manual rescue. Repeat until you build all the structures without wasting anything.
A new day for UCA
Connect your first new affiliate to UCA. Bronze
We trust Sam
Connect all the facilities to the UCA.
In Death Stranding there are 39 UCA structures that you have to find and connect to the UCA network. They are like a kind of outposts and in order to connect them to the network you have to find them and then level them up by making deliveries. The main story will lead you to unlock almost all the structures but there are some that must be searched separately.
Reach level three connection to a facility.
Each structure of the game has 5 levels shown as stars on the map or on the rewards delivery screen. You can increase this level by making deliveries.
Everyone's Friend (Silver)
Reach the maximum level of connection with all facilities.
This is the longest and most boring trophy of the game that takes so many hours to complete, so we recommend that you tackle it in the post game doing what you can during the story without ruining the experience. Basically you have to bring all 39 UCA structures of the game to the maximum level, getting 5 stars. Every time you complete a delivery you'll get a Like from this facility.
Death Stranding how to quickly bring the structures up to level 5
If you want to quickly get Like in Death Stranding to bring your facilities to the maximum level the best method is to play the difficult difficulty and aim for the S grade, especially with heavier loads. The difficulty, the grade obtained and the heavy loads (hundreds of extra Likes) make the Likes received by the structure at the end of delivery grow a lot.
Also better to prefer standard deliveries that show how many likes they give at the end of the mission, always prefer them to lost loads. The cable car is essential so that you can pass quickly between one place and another without walking and avoiding enemies.
IMPORTANT: Sometimes some facilities seem to have no orders. So try with lost loads and keep bringing them items until they recognize your efforts and unlock deliveries for you.
It's not nice what's nice
Assign your first I like it.
Throughout the game world, there are items placed by other players. For example: ladders, ropes, etc. Press the touchpad next to one of these structures to give it a Like.
IMPORTANT: You don't have to play online, if you're offline there will be items placed by NPC that you can give Likes to.
The People's Courier
Reach a total of 2,400 I like in the results screen.
See the "World's Most Famous Courier" trophy.
The most famous courier in the world
Reach a total of 50,000 I like in the results screen.
You'll get it automatically while working on the Big Putty and Everybody's Friend trophies. Likes can be obtained mainly from 2 things: Deliveries and Bridge-Link (i.e. when people online use your facilities or make donations to a shared online locker etc.).
For this trophy you have to count the likes online + offline together. The total number of Likes obtained is displayed on the world map, just press the touchpad.
Deliver your first lost cargo.
Lost cargo is everywhere in the desert. Press R1 to use the scanner and scan the area up to 100 meters around you. Find the lost cargo and return it to the facility to get the trophy.
Heart of gold
Giving away weapons, equipment, etc. for the first time. Online Trophy
After connecting to the game servers, go to any Terminal and open a shared locker. Put an item in it and you will get the trophy. The sharing lockers become available in episode 2 after you complete Order 4 and reach the Waystation west of Capital Knot City.

Read 100 messages.
Receive messages by doing 2 things: Missions History and maximizing the level of Structures. Over the course of the story you will receive about 50 messages, the rest you will have to unlock by maximizing the level of Structures. Sometimes you will not receive emails automatically but you will have to sleep in the private room of the maximized facility.

Read 100 interviews.
Get interviews from 3 things: story missions, structure upgrades and memory chips (collectible). Follow the procedure described in full memory and collect the memory chips.
To view the number of messages received open the menu: World map and view the Data section and then Interviews.
Help the couriers through an area of MULI or terrorists for the first time.
First, unlock the non-lethal assault rifle Lv. 1. You get it automatically from order 41 in episode 4.
Now go to a MULI zone in the central region and stun all the enemies. This type of zone is marked with an orange zone on the map that contains enemies that I want to take your cargo.
To get the trophy you must stun all enemies in a single camp. If done correctly, you will also see a text message at the bottom left "The carriers will temporarily be able to cross this area".
Reach the maximum connection level with the BB.
The connection level with BB automatically increases over time, just make deliveries. BB is the baby you carry around hooked on your chest. If you maximize the level of structures your connection with your baby will grow exponentially. Remember to sleep often in the private rooms of the facilities and to interact with BB (just once per facility).
IMPORTANT: Never let BB's health wear out. If it does, sleep in a facility to restore it. The longer your health remains exhausted the more your connection will be affected.
He likes me!
Get a I like it from the BB. Bronze
The easiest way to get it is to access a private room of the facilities look in the bathroom mirror, perform an action with the right stick and take a picture of Sam.
There are, however, several ways to get a Like from BB, going forward in the story you will definitely unlock one.
Reach level 10 in any delivery rating category.
You see the "Big Putty" trophy.
Reach level 60 in any delivery rating category. Online Trophy
You will get it automatically while trying to maximize the level of all the structures (see the Friend of All trophy). There is, however, a faster process to get I like it in Death Stranding , that is to donate many items in the sharing lockers or build a lot of them. In this way you'll get a lot of I like from other players and you'll be able to unlock this trophy already at the end of the story mode. Remember to be connected to the game servers though.
Predator or Prey
Defeat a predator.
You'll get it during the main story.

Of course you like to deliver!
I deliver 700 items of cargo.
If you're aiming for platinum and getting 5 stars in each facility is impossible to miss, just make deliveries.
Delivery 3,000 kg load. Bronze
If you're aiming for platinum you'll get it without even realizing it, just make deliveries and reach a total of 3,000 kg.

Find Higgs' house. Bronze
Higg's house is located in the central region, within Peter Englert's structure. This property is directly west of Lake Knot City (see image below). You must have passed episode 9 to gain access to Peter Englert's facility. All you need to do is enter his home to get the trophy:
In an AC zone, cut an umbilical cord for the first time without the ACs noticing.
You will get the tool to cut the cord after episode 5. Every single BT has an umbilical cord that becomes visible when using the scanner with R1. BTs occur in areas where it rains. You will find several of them along the main story.
Any help is welcome
Make an exchange with another courier for the first time.
The couriers of the trophy are NPCs, dressed in white, which can be found in groups of 3-4 people in various areas of the map (near Junk Dealer there are usually more). When you meet them give them a large number of likes, then select items and place them in front of them. If they are interested they will take them, then keep giving them objects until they point one towards you. At that point you just need to take it to complete the exchange and unlock the trophy.
Sweet dreams BB
Calm a crying BB and make him stop crying for the first time.
If it has never happened to you, to make a BB cry, all you need to do is fall from a hill and slide on the rocks. The BB container will turn red and it will start crying. Press L1 to pull it off your chest and rock it swinging the controller.
Make a scream that echoes back to you for the first time. Online Trophy
Press the touchpad to call other players online. To get the trophy you have to hear another player's voice coming back like an echo, it will mean that someone answered your scream. Keep pressing the Touchpad at different points in the game and you'll definitely unlock it in the end.
A responsible courier
Dismantle the chiralium-contaminated cargo in crater lake for the first time.
