Stray might not be the longest game out there, but it does come with a number of different collectibles you can chase. For a few of them, you'll have to find the locations of four vending machines that give you energy drink cans.
While neither of them has any inherent value for Stray's protagonist, the merchant in the slums treats energy drink cans as currency and is willing to exchange them for two of the three items he sells.
Stray Energy Drink Locations
Although the absence of a map in Stray might complicate finding the vending machine locations, acquiring the energy drink cans is quite simple, as they automatically dispense when you interact with the machines.
Conveniently, the first machine is close by. Simply climb the stairs next to the merchant and continue forward until you encounter, the musician. You'll find the vending machine positioned opposite him.
For the second vending machine, begin by descending the stairs near the Guardian and continue past the Companion who is leaning against a vending machine. Take a left, followed by a right, and then another right when you spot Grandma, the famed poncho maker.
Continue straight until you come across a bicycle, then turn right. Ascend the stairs, turn left, go down the stairs, and make another left. Proceed forward, climb the larger set of stairs, and take a final left. You will then spot the second Stray vending machine location, granting you your second energy drink can.
For the remaining two vending machines, you'll need to venture to the rooftops. The third vending machine location is situated to the left of the stargazing Companion, near the duo engaged in tossing paint cans to each other. Interacting with this machine will reward you with your third Stray energy drink can.
Just beyond this, you'll notice a robot seated. Approach the robot, and you will find a path to the lower levels. Descend one level and turn right, then hop onto the roof below and continue forward.
When you reach the end of the roof, jump up to the wooden board and take a few steps forward. Then, make a jump down to the location of Stray's fourth vending machine, where you will find the fourth energy drink can. Here's what you can purchase from the merchant:
- Sheet Music 4/8 - 1 Energy Drink Can
- Picture that unlocks a memory (initially covered) - 3 Energy Drink Cans
That's what you need to know about obtaining Stray's energy drink cans from its four vending machine locations. For more help with the game, check out how to get the Zurk weapon in Doc's hideout and what we know about Xbox Game Pass support.
