  • Reach the Distribution Center West of Capital Knot City.
  • Complete the Windfarm mission and receive the Generator upgrade to your PCC.
  • Return to Distribution Center West and build a Generator next to the bike.
  • Wait until the bike is fully charged by the Generator, then you'll be able to use it as needed in Death Stranding.

In Death Stranding, you’ll stumble across an abandoned bike in need of repair outside of the Distribution Center West of Capital Knot City. When you approach the bike, you’ll notice that it’s exactly damaged so much as it’s dead and in need of a charge. Rather than leave the bike, you’ll want to set aside a few minutes to repair it. By repairing the bike, you’ll be able to use it to travel through the world of Death Stranding.

So, how do you repair the bike? To repair the bike, you’ll first need to complete the mission that tasks you with visiting the Windfarm location. After visiting Windfarm and connecting them to the Chiral Network, you’ll be rewarded with an upgrade to your PCC, allowing you to build a Generator. Return to the Distribution Center West of Capital Knot City with your newly upgraded PCC.

Make sure you have a PCC available on your pack then walk over to the abandoned bike and press right on your d-pad to open your PCC. Select the Generator option, then hold L2 and find a spot to set down a Generator. If you don’t have enough materials, you can use the “Claim Materials” option in terminal within Distribution Center West.

Note that you’ll want to set the Generator down as close to the bike as possible. If your Generator outline shows red, you may need to back up and move away slightly to give the structure more room, just don’t move too far away from the bike. Once the Generator outline is green, set it down and wait for it to appear.

Once the Generator is built and fully operational, wait around 10-20 seconds for the bike to charge. When the bike is fully charged, you’ll be able to use it to ride around the world of Death Stranding. If it runs out of charge again, take it back to the Generator or build a new Generator to charge it up again in Death Stranding.
