This article describes the role Lost Cargo plays in the game Death Stranding. Read on for information on the merits of taking on and returning this extra Cargo.

What is Lost Cargo?

Items Dropped on the Map

No Direct Effect on the Story or Orders


Picking up Lost Cargo has no effects on the game's story, or the Orders themselves, but by returning Lost Cargo to the original owners, players can receive Likes and raise their Connection Level. That said, Lost Cargo can be entrusted to another porter through any Terminal or a Postbox as well, but Sam's Connection Level will not increase, and the number of Likes received will decrease significantly compared to returning the Lost Cargo directly to the owner.

Lost Cargo can be Repaired

Lost Cargo will suffer damage when exposed to Timefall or river water, or when impacted in a fall. That's why it's our duty as good porters to repair damaged Cargo using “Repair Spray”. When we return the Lost Cargo in good condition, we increase our rate of receiving Likes and adding to our Connection Level on returning it.

When Lost Cargo Has No Owner

Sometimes the player will encounter Lost Cargo with no owner to deliver it to, and when that happens, it's finders keepers! Some Lost Cargo will be useful Materials or Equipment that's yours for the taking. Just be warned that on using the contents of a piece of Lost Cargo even once renders it unreturnable, so think twice before breaking out your box cutter.

How to Return Lost Cargo

Returning & Entrusting Cargo


Lost Cargo can be Returned from the Terminal where the original owner is located, which will yield the full reward of Likes and raise Sam's Connection Level.


Sam can also choose to Entrust the Lost Cargo from any terminal away from the original owner, or in a Postbox structure found on the map. Because the original owner will not receive the Cargo immediately, and must wait for another porter to pick it up in your stead, the rewards for Sam will not be as great. The number of Likes received will decrease significantly, and Sam's Connection Level will not increase as a result.
