This page provides tips & advice about Porter Grades, how to increase your Porter Grade and what can be gained by increasing your Porter Grade in the game Death Stranding.

What is a Porter Grade?

The Porter Grade is a scale used to evaluate Sam's performance on deliveries. Performing well on deliveries will increase Sam's Porter Grade, which will improve his abilities and allow him to perform better on future deliveries.

The Five Categories

Sam's Porter Grade is divided into five categories, each based on a certain category of tasks accomplished during a delivery. The five Categories are as descibed below.

Bridge Links Measures Sam's performance in interacting with other players
Delivery Time Measures Sam's performance in making a Timed Delivery in good time
Delivery Volume Measures the amount of Cargo which Sam chose to carry
Cargo Condition Measures the final condition of the Cargo on arrival
Miscellaneous Measures additional achievements, like traveling through BT-laden areas and creating new routes

How to Increase Your Porter Grade

When Sam completes a delivery, he will receive Likes depending on how well he performed in the five Categories. He can use these Likes to level up chosen Categories of his Porter Grade. Every time Sam's Porter Grade is increased by 10 levels in one of the five Categories, his abilities will improve accordingly, depending on which category he increased.

Rewards of increasing the Porter Grade in each Category

Bridge Links Allows Sam to create Strand Contracts with other porters, which allow him to ask them for materials and which give his likes greater effectiveness.
Delivery Time Increases Sam's stamina, which allows him to go further without getting tired, so he can make deliveries faster.
Delivery Volume Increases Sam's maximum load weight by 5 kg, allowing him to carry ever greater volumes of Cargo.
Cargo Condition Increases Sam's balance, which decreases the probability that he will fall down and damage the Cargo.
Miscellaneous Increases how many likes Sam receives, allowing him more potential to level up more on future deliveries.

Pros of Raising Your Porter Grade

Improving your Porter Grade is a necessary aspect to proceed in Death Stranding. Because the results of completed missions affect how much Sam's abilities improve, performing well on each mission is key to making the subsequent missions easier to complete.
