Death Stranding - BB autotoxemi
BB autotoxemia is a condition set onto your Bridge Baby after it has been exposed to BTs and other incidents too much.

Unfortunately, there’s no real way to heal BB’s autotoxemia than to just return to the nearest hub with a Private Room and then rest. Your Private Room is perfect for refilling your Canteen, or even learning how to bathe, which are things you can do while you wait for BB’s health and toxicity levels to return to normal.

There isn’t anything special you need to worry about to heal BB’s autotoxemia, so just head down into the Private Room and wait for Sam to rest. After he awakens, you’ll find that BB’s levels have return to normal, allowing you to continue along your way. Remember to keep an eye out on the meter in the bottom left-hand of your screen while out exploring and stop by a room anytime that meter gets too low, just to ensure you don’t ever end up in a rough situation where BB becomes useless due to autotoxemia.

Now that you know how to heal BB autotoxemia, make sure you head back over to our Death Stranding guide for more help as you embark upon Sam’s long journey.
