Find Conan O’Brien in Death Stranding - Otter Hat location

Like many of the other cameos you’ll come across in Death Stranding, Conan O’Brien plays an NPC that Sam will interact with along his journey. This particular NPC, though, is called the Wandering MC, and he can be found at the Cosplayer’s shelter just northwest of South Knot City.

When you talk to him, he’ll be wearing a cute little Otter Hat, which you can obtain by simply helping him out. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to pick up this adorable accessory until after you reach Chapter 3 and are exploring the Central Region. To find the Cosplayer’s Prepper Shelter, head to the long, narrow canyon that’s situated roughly halfway between South Knot City and the Weather Station. The easiest way to find it is to continue making deliveries in the area until you pick up one that sends you to that particular location.
