Death Stranding - Reverse Trike Guide

The reverse trike is a transport vehicle that lets you load cargo to speed up your deliveries. It runs on batteries and can use up additional power when exposed to water. It is also important to avoid crashing into obstacles to avoid damaging your cargo.

How to unlock

A reverse trike found during the main story can be restored to running condition after clearing order no. 9. Completing the delivery allows you to construct a generator facility to make the vehicle operable.

After clearing order no. 23, you will be able to fabricate a reverse trike using gathered materials. To craft a reverse trike, you will need 220 metals and 160 ceramics.

Cargo Capacity

The reverse trike will use up more battery the more cargo is loaded onto it. Its speed also decreases as it carries heavier loads.

Distributing Cargo Weight

Since your the reverse trike will easily run out of batteries from carrying too much cargo, it is better to carry much of the load on your back as you ride. Your own weight will not affect the vehicle’s performance, allowing it to run in the best condition possible.
