On this page of the guide to Death Stranding, we will tell you how to avoid a thermonuclear explosion in the third chapter. The risk of the explosion appears after receiving Order #38 - Emergency Provision Delivery: South Knot City. In order to avoid the explosion, you need to show cunning.
When you accept order #38, you will receive the main cargo, as well as a package with a thermonuclear bombreceived from a mysterious courier.
The thermonuclear bomb is a trap. The bomb explodes if:
- You go to South Knot City immediately (the explosion will occur at the entrance gate).
- You leave the bomb somewhere on the ground and move away from it.
- The cargo with a bomb got destroyed (intentionally or as a result of careless handling of the container).
In each of these cases, you will see a Game Over screen. After that, you will need to load the previous save.
In order to avoid the detonation of the bomb, go to Distribution Center South of Lake Knot City, that is, the location where Fragile is.
Upon arrival, take the elevator down to the Private Room. The main character has a "vision" - he determines that the mysterious package was from Higgs. Speak to Fragile.
You will get a new mission objective - deliver the bomb to the Crater Lake before it explodes. You have 20 minutes to complete this task - we recommend using some kind of vehicle.
After reaching the destination, you have to throw the bomb into the lake - remove it from the back. Watch a short cut-scene from the explosion. You can now safely go to South Knot City.
