Nier: Automata’s fast travel system isn’t exactly similar to most other games. You can’t just open up your map and select your desired location. Instead, you’ll have to depend on certain points of access, which will enable you to fast travel to different locations.
Unfortunately, you won’t have too many fast travel options at the beginning of the game, the only journey you can make will be between the Resistance Camp and the Bunker to start off. No need to get pissed just yet as more options will be available a few hours into the game, but for now you’ll have to make due through alternative means.
Sadly you’ll have to wait till you get deep into the game before you can unlock the full fast travel function. To unlock the fast travel system, you’ll need to get to the underground city and defeat the boss that is located at the end of the caverns. This is pretty much part of the main storyline of the game, so don’t worry about potentially missing it.
Once you’ve beaten the boss, leave the caverns and interact with the android that has just shown up at the entrance. He possesses a brand-new type of Access Point, which has a transporter component. This will now enable you to fast travel to any Access Point that you’ve located and activated within the game world. This is very useful for completing side quest, and makes for much more efficient travelling within the game world. Do remember, you’ll still need to open new Access Points, and even save at them, to activate them for use with the fast travel system.
Congratulations! You now know everything there is to know about fast traveling in Nier: Automata.
