Horizon Forbidden West Trophy Guide

Welcome to the Horizon Forbidden West Trophy guide! The long awaited sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn has arrived and it brings a very obtainable Trophy list with it.

You’ll be relieved to hear that this is a very stress free list. There is one thing that can be missed, but that isn’t until the very end of the story. So you can play through this game up until the very end without having to worry about anything Trophy wise.

None of the few choices you make in the game will alter anything Trophy wise either. You can play at your own pace however you like through about 99% of the game.

One Missable

I did mention that this was a stress free list, but there is one missable that you will need to be aware of. It is possible for “All Machine Types Scanned” to be missed.

However, the missable part is not until the final story mission called “Singularity.” There are 43 machines that you will need to scan and 41 of them can be scanned at any point, including post game in free roam. The two that you need to be cognizant of are “Specter” and “Specter Prime.” These two machines only spawn during main missions. “Specter Prime” will only be available during the final main mission and cannot be scanned after completing the mission. So make sure you scan them or they will be missed.

Play How You Want

Outside of scanning those two missable machines, everything else can be done in whatever order you’d like. There is free roam after the story, so you can clean up whatever you need done afterwards.

You can choose how you want to respond to some characters during dialogue, but none of those dialogue choices will have any impact on Trophies. So feel free to answer however you want without fear of locking yourself out of a Trophy.

The majority of this list is comprised of the usual open world check boxes. The difference between HFW and other open world games is that you don’t have to do everything.

Auto Pop?

Yes, it is possible to auto pop Trophies across two copies of the game, but you can only import your save from PS4 to PS5. You cannot go the other way.

If you earned the Platinum on PS4, you can auto pop the PS5 list by importing your save file. This option will only appear if the game detects your PS4 save file. It will auto detect your file when you boot up the game.

All Tallneck Overridden

Reached the top of every Tallneck and accessed their information.

There are six Tallnecks to climb in Horizon Forbidden West and none of them are missable.

You can start working on these after completing the main mission “The Embassy.”

Although there are six of them, you’ll actually only have to track down four of them. One of them will be done automatically as part of the story and the other is the objective for completing the IOTA Cauldron.

If you played Horizon Zero Dawn, you’re already familiar with this mechanic. If not, this is a mechanic that is pretty much a staple of open world games nowadays. These are like radio towers from Far Cry or Viewpoints from Assassin’s Creed.

They are climbing puzzles that when you get to the top you can interact with which will reveal more details on the map. Despite the mention of the other game series above, there are a few more layers to climbing these. Each one of them will have a different path to get to the top.

All of their locations will be automatically added to your map when reach a certain story point somewhat early on in the game.


 First Rebel Camp Completed

Completed key objectives in 1 Rebel Camp.

See the “Defeated Asera” Trophy below for more details.


Defeated Asera

Investigated all Rebel Camps and helped Erend defeat Asera.

There are six Rebel Camps in the game and none of them are missable.

You will need to go to each one and scan for clues, defeat the camp leader, destroy items or investigate items in the camp.

You can do the first five in any order you want. After completing the fifth, you’ll be given a waypoint which will direct you to Erend before taking down the sixth.

You can keep track of these under Quests > Rebel Camps.

They will be marked as icons on your map.

There are six Cauldrons to complete in the game and none of them are missable.

This is something that you will be introduced to as part of the story. The first two Cauldrons will take place in two different main missions.

These are side areas that will have you climbing through them and defeating enemies. Overriding a core in these will give you different machine overrides which will allow you to tame different machines.

See the “Obtained 3 Stripes at All Hunting Grounds” Trophy below for more details.

Earned at least a Quarter Stripe mark in all three trials at all Hunting Grounds.

There are 12 trials in total to complete. These are divided up in three trials at four different Hunting Grounds. None of these are missable.

Each of the trials are timed. So the faster you complete them, the better your score will be.

The score is broken down below:

  • Gold – Full Stripes
  • Silver – Half Stripes
  • Bronze – Quarter Stripes

For the purposes of this Trophy, getting a bronze score in the trials will count toward this. So, you don’t have to be perfect across all 12 of the trials.

They will be marked as icons on your map.

MISSABLE

There are 43 different types of machines found in the game. 41 of them can be found out in the wild during the story and after it. You can scan these at any time.

There are also several different categories of each machine type, but those don’t matter. You just need to scan at least one of every general type.

Now for the missable part of this Trophy.

There are two machines that can be missed. These two machines are Specter and Specter Prime. Specters show up through out the main story missions. Specter Prime only appears one time and it is during the final story mission “Singularity.” If you do not scan it during the final mission, you can not get it anywhere else in the game. It’s also important to note that if you die after scanning machines, you will need to scan them again.

You can actually keep track of all the machines that you have scanned by going into your Notebook > Machine Catalogue. If there is a machine icon instead of an “?,” that means the machine has been registered as scanned. So make sure that you check your Machine Catalogue during the final fight to make sure that the two missable machines have been registered.

You can scan enemies by pressing and holding . Then aim the reticle at the machine and it will quickly scan.


 Completed a Long Glide

Glided uninterrupted for 60 seconds.

There is a very easy method for getting this done.

You’ll get the Glider as part of the story somewhat early on in the game. Toward the end of the game, you’ll unlock the flying mount as part of the story.

When you have the mount unlocked, fly up as high as you can and then jump off the mount. Hold as you fall to equip the glider. All you have to do then is stay gliding until the Trophy pops.

This has to be 60 consecutive seconds. It is not 60 accumulative seconds across multiple glides.


 Completed 2 Flying Mount Quests

The first Gauntlet Run can be found just north of Arrowhand.


 Completed a Set of Salvage Contracts

There are nine Relic Ruins in the game, but you will only need to complete three of them for this Trophy.

These Ruins are puzzles that have a Relic you need to reach at the end of them. The Relics will be behind a locked door. You’ll need to solve the puzzles, find a door code and sometimes a key module in the Ruins.

These are best saved until later in the game as some of them require abilities that are unlocked during the story. You will need two abilities. The ability to destroy Firegleams and the ability to destroy Metal Flowers. The Firegleam ability is given to you in main mission “Death’s Door.” The Metal Flower ability will be given to you in main mission “Seeds of the Past.”

Winning the games set on “Beginners Practice: Easy” will count toward this.

They will be marked as icons on your map.

Obtained 1 weapon from every weapon class.

There are eight different weapon classes. All you need to do is get at least one weapon from each class.

You can easily knock this out by simply buying them from Hunter Merchants found at the settlements. One merchant wont sell all eight, so you’ll have to buy them from multiple locations.

  • Blastslings
  • Boltblaster
  • Hunter Bow
  • Ropecaster
  • Sharpshot Bow
  • Shredder Gauntlet

When attacking an enemy with an elemental weapon, you’ll see a little icon of that element above the enemy. Keep attacking them until that icon completely fills up.

The other way to is to attack a weak point on an enemy with an elemental weapon until that weak point explodes.

You’ll need to use each of the following:

  • Acid
  • Fire
  • Frost
  • Plasma
  • Purgewater
  • Shock

 Performed 3 Melee Combos

Successfully performed 3 different unlockable melee combos.

You will first need to buy three different melee combos from the Warrior skill tree by spending skill points. Skill points are earned by completing missions and leveling up.

You’ll know you did this successfully because the name of the combo you performed will appear on screen.


 Stealth Killed 10 Machines

Performed a stealth kill on 10 machines.

This is something that you can earn very early on in the game.

First, you’re going to want to press to crouch so you can stay quiet. Stay hidden in the tall grass until the machine turns its back to you. Quietly sneak up on a machine and then press to perform a silent strike.

You’re going to want to do this against the smaller enemy types so that they are killed in one hit.

Performing a silent strike while enemies are alerted will not count toward this. They have to be completely unaware.


 Tore off 100 Components

Detached 100 components from machines.

This is something that will likely pop without having to go out of your way for it over the course of your playthrough.

Every machine enemy has components on them will detach when you attack them. These are weak points, so you should be aiming at them to make combat easier.

Press to scan enemies and these weak points will be highlighted.


 Picked up 5 Heavy Weapons

Picked up 5 different heavy weapons.

This Trophy only counts the heavy weapons that are shot and detached off of the bigger machine type enemies.

When you detach a heavy weapon off of an enemy, you can pick it up and use it in battle. These weapons are usually located on the backs of enemies.

Enemies that have detachable weapons are listed below:

  • Stalker
  • Grimhorn
  • Ravager
  • Dreadwing
  • Shellsnapper
  • Thunderjaw
  • Scorcher

 10 Types of Machine Overridden

Unlocked and used the overrides for 10 different types of machine.

Overrides are acquired by completing Cauldrons. Even after completing a Cauldron, some of the overrides will still need to be crafted.

Overrides can be crafted at the Fabrication Terminal in The Base. Following the story will take you to The Base.

It’s important to note that the Apex versions of machines cannot be overridden, so don’t waste your time trying on those.

Once you have the required overrides, you can use them on enemies by stealthily sneaking up on them and by holding when you’re close to them. If successful, the machine will fight for you in combat as well as follow you.

You can use your Machine Catalogue to track if a machine can be overridden. All you have to do is select a machine and it will tell you if you have that override unlocked or not on the left side of the screen.

The following machines can be overridden:

  • Grazer
  • Burrower
  • Scrounger
  • Leaplasher
  • Charger
  • Lancehorn
  • Longleg

After you’ve completed all of the melee pits, you can then proceed with tracking the quest “The Enduring.” This quest will get added to your quest log after you complete your first melee pit, but you won’t be able to complete it until all four are done.

All you will need to do after that is beat the melee master.


 Fully Upgraded a Valor Surge

Upgraded a Valor Surge to its maximum level.

A Valor Surge is a perk that you can equip from the various skill trees. They are unlocked by spending skill points on them.

You’ll need to unlock the skills that surround it in order to fully gain access to the Valor Surge. There are three upgrades in the Valor Surge and you will need to upgrade all three of them.

The Valor Surges are the circular areas of the skill trees.


Upgraded 3 Weapons

Fully upgraded 3 weapons.

In order to upgrade weapons and outfits, you need to interact with a workbench. Workbenches are often found at settlements.

You can fully upgrade any three weapons or outfits you want, but this is easiest done with the green tier uncommon weapons and outfits. Uncommon weapons and outfits only have three upgrades and the upgrades require common components.

As long as you’re always looting defeated enemies, chests and the environment, you’ll likely always have the required materials for upgrades. If you do need crafting materials, you can press while in the upgrade menu for “Create Job” which will place an objective marker where you can find the materials you’re missing for the upgrade that you have selected.


 Upgraded 3 Outfits

Fully upgraded 3 different outfits.

Upgrading outfits works the same as upgrading weapons. See the “Upgraded 3 Weapons” Trophy above for more details.

For this, you’re going to need at least a blue tier weapon. Blue and purple tier weapons can be upgraded to have two coil slots and yellow tier weapons have three coil slots that can be upgraded to five.

Coils can be obtained by looting defeated machines or they can be bought from Hunter Merchants.

Go into your inventory, select the weapon you want to add a coil to and press to add a coil.

If there is a lock on one of the coil slots, that means you need to upgrade the weapon at a workbench. Equip any weapon blue or higher with at least two coils to pop this.


 Unlocked 3 Weapon Techniques

Unlocked a Weapon Technique for 3 different weapon classes.

Weapon techniques are the diamond shaped skills found in the middle of the skill trees. They will also say “Weapon Technique” in the description.

You will need to unlock three of these across three different skill trees. You cannot get this by unlocking three techniques in the same tree.

All you have to do here is complete at least one of each of the collectibles.

  • Survey Drone – There are 10 of these drones that can be found flying around on set paths. You wont be able to shoot these down. You actually need to climb up to a certain point where you’ll be able to reach the drone by jumping to it. Once you’ve grabbed it, you can hang on to it until it descends all the way down to the ground. Once you’re on the ground with the drone, you can loot it.
  • Black Box – There are 12 Black Boxes to find, but you only need one of them for this Trophy. These are exactly what you think when you hear “black box.” They are the black boxes that are found in airplanes. Crashed airplanes can be found across the map and you can search the wreckage for the black box collectible. You’ll be introduced to these during the story if you speak to Untalla during the “The Broken Sky” main quest.
  • Relic Ruin – You will need to complete three of these in order to earn the “Completed 3 Relic Ruins” Trophy. See that for more details.
  • Vista Point – There are nine Vista Point locations. Vista Points are visual puzzles. These require you to scan the location and then match the scan to the real world location to recreate what it used to look like. You’ll need to stand in specific locations in each of these spots in order to recreate the image.
  • Signal Tower – There are six different Signal Tower locations. These are just tall towers that you need to climb up. You need to climb to the top and retrieve a lens. If you have the flying mount unlocked, you can just easily fly up to the top and grab the lens.

Used dye flowers to unlock and apply a new dye.

You can dye your clothing by interacting with Dyers. There are three of them found throughout the game. They will appear as icons on your map.

You will also need to have the required flowers in order to dye your clothes. Oddly enough, the flowers mentioned in the Trophy description are not called flowers in the game. The plants you need are called Blooms.

The Dyers are found in the following locations:

  • Plainsong
  • Scalding Spear
  • Thornmarsh
