Before we go into detail about accessing you DLC items, I must first point out you need to have downloaded the items to access them. This process is done automatically if you purchased the game through the PlayStation/Xbox/PC store, but can be a bit of a pain from retailers.

Those of you who purchased from retailers may have been given a code for you pre-order and Deluxe Edition items. This code needs to be inputted to download your content. We’ve put together a brief guide on the process for PS4 here. Xbox One owners can check this Gamestop guide here, and Steam owners can check this guide here.

If your pre-ordered any edition of Rage 2 you are owed a number of different items including the Cult of the Death God exclusive mission, the Settlers Pistol, Nicholas Raine Armor, and the Mutant Monster Truck skin. Below I detail how to access each pre-order bonus.

The Cult of the Death God Mission unlocks shortly after completing the Blackout portion of the main questline. As you drive away from Gunbarrel, John Marshall will ask you to check in on an old friend of his. This starts the questline. After this mission is complete you will unlock the following items:

  • Settler Pistol.
  • Nicholas Raine Armor.
