As you dive deeper into the story surrounding the main characters of Nier: Automata, you’re going to find yourself running all over the place. Like most open world games, there are plenty of places to explore and see, and sometimes running isn’t going to be the best way to get from place to place. Luckily, there is a fast travel system, which makes things a bit easier. In this article we’ll teach you everything you need to know to learn how to fast travel in Nier: Automata.
How to Fast Travel
Fast traveling in Nier: Automata is a bit different than most other games. You won’t simply be able to open up your map and choose a location that you want to go to. Instead, you’ll need to rely on specific points of access, which will allow you to fast travel from location to location.
Sadly, fast travel options will be very limited at the start of the game, and you’ll only be able to move between the Resistance Camp and the Bunker to start off. Don’t worry, this will open up a bit a few hours into the game, but for now you’re going to need to get around using other means.
Unfortunately, the full fast travel function won’t be unlocked until much later in the game. To unlock the fast travel system, you’ll need to make your way into the underground city and take on the boss that is located at the end of the caverns. You’ll reach this area by following the main storyline of the game, so it is impossible to miss.
Once you’ve defeated the boss, head out of the caverns and interact with the android that has now appeared at the entrance. He’ll be carrying a brand-new type of Access Point, which features a transporter component. This will now allow you to fast travel to any Access Point that you’ve located and activated within the game world. This is extremely useful for completing side quest, and makes travel within the game world much easier. Keep in mind, you’ll still need to open new Access Points, and even save at them, to activate them for use with the fast travel system.
Now that you know everything there is to know about fast traveling in Nier: Automata, be sure to check out our guide on how to save, as you’ll need to know how to do that if you want to unlock new Access Points. We also have a complete guide on how to complete the YoRHa Betrayers quest, which has proven to be tough to crack for many players. We’ll have additional Nier: Automata content coming in the next few days, so stay tuned for even more helpful articles, walkthroughs, and guides.
