During the sixth chapter of Stray titled “The Slums Part 2,” you’re tasked with repairing a Tracker, and to do so, you’ll need to give Elliot a Poncho to keep him warm. Elliot can’t work when he’s cold, so your job is to get Grandma to knit you a Poncho. However, the game doesn’t have waypoints or a map, making it a little tricky to find the items you need. Here, we’ll show you everything you need to know about this quest, including details for getting the Super Spirit Detergent, Electrical Cable, and where to find the Barterman, Grandma, and Elliot in Stray.

How to repair the Tracker in Stray

To repair the Tracker in Stray, you need a couple of items, including the Super Spirit Detergent, Electrical Cable, and Poncho.

Give the Super Spirit Detergent to the Barterman, in exchange for the Electrical Cable, and then give that to Grandma to get the Poncho. Then take the Poncho to Elliot to keep him warm. Below is a detailed walkthrough for getting each item.

First, head to the rooftops where you’ll find Vapora throwing paint buckets at Mito. What you need to do is meow (by pressing Circle) as Vapora throws the bucket so it drops down to the streets below.

The Super Spirit Detergent is inside the laundromat.

Take the Electrical Cable to Grandma, who’s located on the opposite end of the city in relation to the Barterman. Remember to use the signs to find your way. After you arrive, talk to Grandma, and give her the Electrical Cable so she’ll knit a Poncho for you.

Finally, turn around and head past the two blanket-covered robots on the ground, where you’ll see a door on the left. This is Elliot’s shop. Scratch at the door and Nestor the robot will let you in. Once inside, head upstairs, and give Elliot the Poncho so he’ll repair the Tracker, which will complete this quest.
