Players want to know how to help the cold robot, Elliot, get warm again in Stray.

In order to fix the Transceiver and find Doc, players need to visit Elliot and ask him to preprogram it. However, to keep the machinery around him running, Elliot has to keep his room colder than usual, causing him to become cold in the process and shiver uncontrollably. Players will have to find a way to keep him warm while he works.

Here's how to help out Elliot so he can fix the Transceiver.

How to Get Elliot a Poncho in Stray

To help Elliot get warm, players will need to find him some warmer clothes. A poncho will do perfectly — however, it's not as though cats can effectively stitch clothing. Instead, players will need to find someone in the Slums who can.

Fortunately, that person has set up shop not too far from Elliot's home. Known as "Grandma," she has a passion for knitting and has been known to knit miles upon miles of scarves among other clothing items for the residents of the area.

Before she can make a poncho for players, however, she'll need some electrical cable. This can be found at the Merchant's tent, on the right side of the Guardian's elevator. He can let the bundle of cables go for one jug of Super Spirit detergent — which we've already written a full guide about.

Once successfully traded, players can take the cables to Grandma and then take the poncho she knits in exchange back to Elliot. This will stop his shivering and allow him to fix the Transceiver.
