The rapid Death Stranding trip allows you to travel the map faster than any other method of travel such as vehicles.
Despite having its limitations (which we describe below) it is an effective way to reach the big cities on the map and return to already explored areas.
How to unlock the quick journey in Death Stranding
The quick journey in Death Stranding is a skill that won’t be unlocked until you reach Episode 3. Luckily, you won’t have to wait long once you’ve reached that part of the story.
As soon as you have control of Sam in Episode 3 you will have to complete Order 18, a fairly simple shipment to Lake Knot City that is not far from your initial location.
As soon as you complete the shipment and finish the scene you will unlock the fast travel skill.
