So I thought, sure, why wonder what on earth is going on with cryptobiotes when they’re not even close to being the weirdest thing in Death Stranding. But now I’ve changed my mind, all thanks to somebody who posted their up-close-and-personal photoshoot with a cryptobiote on Reddit.
So no, Reddit poster, I would not eat a cryptobiote, a mini, pink tardigrade manatee hybrid that floats along the wayward winds of Death Stranding.
When Sam first encounters Fragile at the beginning of Death Stranding, she pulls out a cryptobiote and chows down.
Death Stranding has quite a robust photo mode and someone has completely taken advantage of it by getting this absurd shot of a cryptobiote.
