Go to the Scrapper site located west of the campfire during the "A Seeker At The Gates" main quest. Once you have access to the "A Seeker At The Gates" main quest (earliest you can reach this area), travel northwest to reach the campfire, then proceed west (follow the river) to reach the Scrapper site. This is the same area where Aloy saved the man that fell when she was young. While at the Scrapper site, hide and kill the Scrappers while remaining stealthy. Loot the Scrappers to get two very rare mods (+42-43% Corruption Coil and +38% Handling Coil, +37% Damage Coil, or +35% Shock Coil) that can be used to upgrade your weapons and armor. You can also sell these mods to get money to buy better weapons. These mods are useful early in the game, allowing Aloy to become very powerful in the early game. Fast travel or run back to the campfire. Use the campfire to save, then quit the game. Continue the game after quitting, and return to the Scrapper site. Kill the Scrappers to get the very rare mods again. Repeat this process as many times as desired. This same exploit can also be used in other areas of the game where enemies always drop very rare items.Easy XP, shards, and very rare mods
First, get the "Golden Fast Travel Pack" for infinite fast travel. Then, go to the campfire immediately west of the Thunderjaw site. Once you spawn, use your Tearblast arrows to easily destroy the components on the Thunderjaw. You only need one arrow for the component on each side. Once you have knocked both components off, grab the nearby Disc Launcher and keep shooting it at the Thunderjaw. Once there is no ammo remaining, grab the second Disc Launcher and shoot it at the Thunderjaw to destroy it. You will get lots of XP, shards, and very rare (purple) mods for killing it. After collecting the loot, run back to the campfire you spawned at and press Triangle to quick save the game. Then, jump off the edge of the map to kill yourself. This is quicker than fast traveling back and forth. You will then spawn back at the campfire and Thunderjaw will have respawned. Repeat this process as many times as desired. You can get approximately 30,000 XP and 3,000 shards every ten minutes using this exploit.Getting the best weapons
Get all 15 Blazing Sun Marks (gold medals) across the five Hunting Grounds Trials. Give the Sun Marks to Aidaba in the Hunter's Lodge of Meridian to get three treasure boxes. Open them in your inventory to get the following three weapons: Lodge Blast Sling (shoots powerful explosives for high damage), Lodge Ropecaster (strongest ropecaster in the game with the most tear attribute), and Lodge War Bow (elemental bow that shoots corruption, shock, and freeze arrows). These weapons cannot be bought from merchants. You also get four trophies for completing all the Hunting Ground Trials with Blazing Sun Marks.Secret Shield-Weaver outfit/armor
Find all five Power Cells and take them to the Ancient Armory bunker (marked as a side quest) to unlock the Shield-Weaver outfit/armor and "Got The Shield-Weaver Outfit" trophy. This armor is extremely powerful and makes you invincible until it starts flashing red. It absorbs every type of damage, even falling damage. When it turns red, go into cover for a few seconds to make it recharge. You can take a lot of damage before it gets red, which makes the game much easier.Secret Tearblaster weapon
Successfully complete the "Hunting For The Lodge" errand, which is automatically unlocked after getting Half Sun Marks in three Hunting Ground Trials. Then, successfully complete the "Hunter's Blind" follow-up side quest, which is automatically unlocked after completing the "Hunting For The Lodge" errand (mark it in your quest log), to unlock the Tearblaster treasure box as a mission reward. You can find it under "Inventory", "Treasure Boxes", "Tearblaster Weapon Box". Even though this quest line is not really secret, the weapon can easily be overlooked among the many other reward boxes. It is a good weapon for early to mid-game. It shoots compressed air, tearing off machine components, armor, and heavy weapons in one hit. Use it against enemies that carry weapons on their backs, then use their own weapons against them (especially the big Thunderjaws are very easy to kill this way). It is also good against flying enemies to knock them out of the air or shoot machine components with fluids that will then explode. The Tearblaster stuns most enemies in a few hits. They then fall to the ground for a few seconds where you can follow up with a critical spear hit. The range is very limited, comparable to a sawed-off shotgun.Infinite fast travel
To fast travel to and from any discovered campfires or settlements, you need the "Fast Travel Pack" item. You can craft the Fast Travel Pack by selecting "Crafting", "Travel", "Pack" at the menu. It costs 15 Ridge-Wood, 1 Fatty Meat, and 1 Bony Meat to craft each "Fast Travel Pack". To fast travel an unlimited number of times without having to use lots of crafting materials on Fast Travel Packs, purchase the "Golden Fast Travel Pack" from a vendor. It is not too expensive, and can be unlocked fairly early in the game. Go to Meridian City and talk to the Hunting Goods merchant in the market square to purchase the Golden Fast Travel Pack under the Resources tab. It costs 50 Metal Shards, 1 Fox Skin, and 10 Fatty Meat. You can get the Rare Fox Skin and Fatty Meat by hunting foxes. Press R3 to scan your surroundings for animals. It takes 5-10 fox kills for it to drop. They are often in woods (green areas on map). The Golden Fast Travel Pack costs a lot more than a Fast Travel Pack, but it is well worth it. It is easy to overlook this enhanced item at the bottom of the merchant's resources list. Every campfire that was previously discovered is available for fast travel. The Golden Fast Travel Pack consumes one resource item slot. Just keep it in your inventory and all your travels will be free. This saves a lot of time over the course of the game.Getting a permanent mount
One feature in the game is that you can override certain machines and use them as a mount. You can then ride them like a horse, which makes navigating the huge open world much quicker. Normally when you catch one of these machines, it will eventually disappear because machines only stay overridden for a set amount of time and then disappear. However, there is an easy way to unlock permanent mounts. They can also help you in battle. You can call a mount whenever desired and as many times as you want (the only restriction is that they are not allowed in cities). Go to the skill menu and buy "Call Mount +" (Forager skill tree). This skill calls a new overridden mount if no mount is available. To unlock the skill, you need to unlock other skills in this tree and three skill points to buy it. It is recommended to get it as early as possible, especially because the mount is really useful in combat. A quick way to get skill points early in the game is to climb all Tallnecks (there are five and each one gives one skill point).All Power Cell locations
Search the indicated locations to find all five Power Cells. They are found in mission areas, but you can go back and collect them later as well. The missions areas are locked until you reach a certain point in the story. You can still free roam after completing the story and collect everything. To save some time, it is recommended to collect them during the main quests. If you die, you must collect them again; they are not saved until reaching the next checkpoint. The Power Cells have a green icon that makes them easier to spot. If you have trouble reaching a location, simply hover over the area on the world map and press D-pad Down to view the different layers. Place a marker by pressing X at the same location as shown in the video. Then, go to "Game Settings" (press Options) and enable the "Waypoint Pathfinding" option. This provides a new waypoint every few meters to guide you through buildings. This is especially useful for the second Power Cell on the 12th floor of the "Maker's End" main quest. If you get them during the story, just follow the main quest markers to automatically reach the areas.
1. - Area: All Mother ("The Womb Of The Mountain" main quest): It is found in a side room on the right side after waking up in the mountain (1st floor). Crouch through the hole in the wall to reach it. If you miss it, this area gets locked until completing "The Heart Of The Nora" main quest, which is at the end of the story.
2. Area: Maker's End ("Maker's End" main quest): It is found at the very top of the tower (12th floor).
3. Area: The Grave Hoard ("The Grave Hoard" main quest): It is found on the 3rd floor, after solving the ring puzzle to open the locked door. It is behind the locked door; you will walk right into it. You have to open this door and solve the puzzle as part of the story. It is very easy to locate this Power Cell.
4. Area: GAIA Prime ("The Mountain That Fell" main quest): It is found on the 3rd floor. After going through the first part of the building, you will go outside and have to rappel down. Before rappelling down, jump down to the left on the rocks to find it in the hidden purple area.
5. Area: Ruins ("Free Roam" main quest): These are the ruins from the prologue of the game, where young Aloy fell down. One of the doors can now be pried open with the spear. When looking at the map, it is found on the 1st floor in the purple area at the bottom right corner.
After finding all five Power Cells, go to the Ancient Armory bunker. It is marked as a side quest. Insert the five Power Cells and solve the ring puzzle to get the armor. Open the Shield-Weaver Outfit Treasure Box in the inventory screen to equip the armor.
Search the indicated locations to find all 23 Grazer training dummies in the Nora region and get the "Downed 23 Grazer Dummies" trophy. They look like deer made of straw, with a bow training target on them. You can knock them over with your spear. They are usually near campfires. All of them are at named map locations, mostly at towns/settlements and two bandit camps. Nora Region is the snowy starting area, including the north-eastern snowy parts. This region ends where the desert begins.
Search the indicated locations to find all 12 Ancient Vessels and get the "All Ancient Vessels Found" trophy. You can buy a map at any merchant to display their general locations. This does not provide the exact location, only a rough search area. Press R3 to scan for ancient rubble. Then, search the pile of rubble to find the Ancient Vessel. After finding all 12 Ancient Vessels, take them to the collectibles merchant in Meridian to get 1,500 metal shards and several modifications. This is a fast way to earn money. Each Ancient Vessel has its own unique name that you can view in the notebook (press Touchpad), which also displays how many you have found. The collectibles are not automatically saved. You must first reach a checkpoint or campfire to save the progress. None of them are missable. You can free roam in the open world and get them at any time.

Search the indicated locations to find all six Banuk figures/Arnak's figures and get the "All Banuk Figures Found" trophy. You can buy a map at any merchant to display their general locations. This does not provide the exact location, only a rough search area. These figures are on mountain tops and require a long climb. There are usually some markings on the stones nearby to show you the climbing path. The figures look like little straw animals. After finding all six, take them to the collectibles merchant in Meridian to get 1,500 metal shards and several modifications. Each Banuk figure has its own unique name that you can view in the notebook (press Touchpad), which also displays how many you have found. The collectibles are not automatically saved. You must first reach a checkpoint or campfire to save the progress. None of them are missable. You can free roam in the open world and get them at any time.
Search the indicated locations to find all 30 Metal Flowers and get the "All Metal Flowers Found" trophy. You can buy a map at any merchant to display their general locations. This does not provide the exact location, only a rough search area. Press R3 to scan for the flowers, then collect them. After finding all 30 Metal Flowers, take them to the collectibles merchant in Meridian to get 3,000 metal shards and several purple modifications. Each Metal Flower has its own unique name that you can view in the notebook (press Touchpad), which also displays how many you have found. The collectibles are not automatically saved. You must first reach a checkpoint or campfire to save the progress. None of them are missable. You can free roam in the open world and get them at any time.

Search the indicated locations to find all five Tallnecks. Climb and override all five of them to get the "All Tallnecks Overridden" trophy. They are the largest machines in the game and look similar to a Brachiosaurus. They are walking in circles around a predefined area. There is always a tall building, ramp, or rock you can use to jump onto their neck. You must then climb up to reach their head. While on their head, hold Triangle to override them and clear the fog from the respective map area so you can clearly view all map icons. After doing the first few story missions, you will reach the area with the first Tallneck. After that you can get the remaining ones at any time. Some of them are in areas with high level enemies -- so be careful. Either rush past those enemies or wait until you are Level 20 or higher.
Search the indicated locations to find all 12 Vantage Datapoints and get the "All Vantages Found" trophy. You can buy a map at any merchant to display their general locations. This does not provide the exact location, only a rough search area. The Vantage Datapoints are on high platforms overlooking huge open areas. You must usually climb mountains or rocks to reach them. There is always a supply box right next to them that contains a decent amount of metal shards. This makes them a good resource for some quick money. They look like a purple icon when you go near them. Press R3 to activate them. This will allow you to look into the past and show you what the game world looked like in ancient times. Each Vantage Datapoint has its own unique name that you can view in the notebook (press Touchpad), which also displays how many you have found. The collectibles are not automatically saved. You must first reach a checkpoint or campfire to save the progress.
This video walkthrough shows how to get a "Blazing Sun" mark in all 15 Hunting Ground trials and the "Blazing Suns At All Grounds" trophy. The trials are scattered across five different hunting grounds. They are marked with a blue icon on the map after climbing the Tallnecks. It is recommended to first get the Shield-Weaver armor because it makes you invincible. Buy as many purple weapons as possible, especially the Shadow Hunter Bow and Shadow Sharpshot Bow. If you have trouble with a trial, wait until the end of the game when you are Level 30 or higher. They will be very easy at this point. All of these challenges are time based. The faster you are, the better you will score. The Blazing Sun marks are basically gold medals and give you 17,500 XP for each one earned, which is great for quickly leveling up. For the "Ravager Control" trial, you must learn how to override ravagers with your spear. You get this ability by completing Cauldron RHO (Cauldrons are also marked on the map with blue icons).
The following video shows the location of all machine types and how to quickly defeat them. You can view which ones you have encountered and scanned (press Touchpad) in the notebook. Scan and kill all machines to get the "All Machines Catalogued", "All Acquisition Machines Killed", "All Recon Machines Killed", "All Combat Machines Killed", and "All Transport Machines Killed" trophies.

Search the indicated locations to find the three hidden Death Stranding items in the game. If you die after collecting one of the items and before the game has saved the progress, you will need to collect it again. After collecting all three Death Stranding items, take them to the Mysterious Boxes merchant in Meridian and trade them for a Mysterious Box. The box contains the following items: Special Modification Box (rare weapon or outfit modification), Modification Box (random weapon or outfit modification), Shard Gambler's Box (metal shards), and Warm Socks (can be sold to merchants for 100 metal shards; it is unknown if this item has any other use). Note: These items are a reference to Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding game, which is also using the Decima Engine that powers Horizon: Zero Dawn. Each of these items has a Kojima Productions logo on it when viewing it in the inventory menu.
Stranded Necklace: This is the necklace worn by Norman Reedus in the first reveal trailer for Death Stranding. It can be found in "The Grave-Hoard" main quest. After killing the enemies in the underground facility, go left instead of proceeding down the path that leads into the bunker, towards the back of the tank. Follow that wall to find a skeleton along the wall with the Stranded Necklace (has a purple marker on it).
Stranded Shackles: These are the futuristic handcuffs on Norman Reedus' hand during the Death Stranding trailer. They can be found during the "Deep Secrets Of The World" quest, in northern Sunfall. View two holo playbacks during this quest. The first one is of General Herrers and the second is Elisabet Sobeck. After viewing the holovid from Elisabet, follow the path to the left of the security booth from the room next to where the holovid was located. Proceed further to reach a small office on the right that you can enter with the Stranded Shackles on a table in that room.
Stranded Figure: This is the creepy doll figure found in another Death Stranding trailer. It can be found during "The Heart Of The Nora" quest, inside the Eleuthia-9 facility in the southwestern part of the map. This is the easiest collectible to find since it is basically located at the start of the facility. After first entering the bunker, go through the lobby and down the stairs. When you reach the base of the stairs, turn around and collect the Stranded Figure from under the staircase.
The Deep Secrets Of The Earth puzzle is one of the more difficult puzzles in the game. It requires you to align two panels, each with five rings in them, in the correct order to unlock the path. The puzzle is found in the "Deep Secrets Of The Earth" mission and cannot be missed. Use the following steps to solve the puzzle. When you enter the room, there will be two panels. The panel on the left can be solved right away, but the one on the right side is missing a ring. To align the panel on the left, use Focus Device (R3) on the wall panel to the left to see the correct combination. The direction of the red lines will indicate the alignment of the ring. The rings need to be aligned in the following sequence from left to right: Left, Up, Left, Down, Right. Once the puzzle on the left is completed, the bunker door will open. Proceed upstairs to get an emitter. Then, go back downstairs and install it in the panel on the right side. After the panel is in place, use Focus Device to check the solution of the panel. However, the rings will have been turned around so their actual alignment is reversed. The ones facing up should be facing down and vice versa. The following is the correct combination to align this panel: Down, Left, Up, Right, Down. Once both panels are aligned, the puzzle will be completed.Getting rare loot
Repeatedly kill the indicated enemies to get the listed rare loot. Make sure to not use mounts as transportation if you are looking for loot items. The first thing you need to do before searching for loot is to make sure you have enough space to store the items you find. Looted items can be used to craft ammunition, trade with merchant, sold for metal shards, and more. A convenient feature in the game is that you can create active quests for certain types of loot by highlighting it at the merchant.
Animal Parts: You can get animal parts and skins by killing animals. Wildlife is hard to find since most of the world is filled with robots. Roam around in the forest and in the water to hunt for animal parts.
Crystal Braiding: Find all five Tallneck to unlock the entire map. Kill the Rockbreaker, Behemoth, Stormbird, Thunderjaw, and Deathbringer enemies, which should be easy to find after unlocking the entire map. Corrupted machines are better for rare loot.
Machine Hearts: All machine have a hearts, which means getting the rarest ones are in the corrupted zone. Take down machines to gain access to their hearts. For example, of the rarest items is the Sawtooth heart. It is a rare item and only found on a Sawtooth.
Desert Glass: Desert glass is exclusive to humans. Mark the human areas, then use stealth to kill as many human enemies as possible.
Luminous Braiding: Find all five Tallneck to unlock the entire map. Find Sawtooth, Longleg, Shell0Walker, Fire Bellowback, Freeze Bellowback, Trampler, Ravager, Snapmaw, Stalker, and Corruptor enemies on the map. Repeatedly kill these enemies to get Luminous Braiding.
Note: Do not choose "Brains" or "Fist" during dialogues. Always choose "Heart" in all dialogues during main quests and side quests. Play until "The Looming Shadow" main quest. This is main quest #21 and the final mission of the game (can view progress in the notebook stats). Before doing the first objective of "The Looming Shadow" main quest, successfully complete the following 11 side quests:
- Traitor's Bounty and Queen's Gambit
- A Moments Peace
- A Daughter's Vengeance
- Sun And Shadow
- Honor The Fallen
- Sunstone Rock
- Hunting For The Lodge, Hunter's Blind, Deadliest Game, and Redmaw
If any quests are unavailable, it is because you have not progressed far enough in the story. They will all be available by the time you reach "The Looming Shadow" main quest. If you encounter a quest earlier, it is fine to complete it then. Once all 11 side quests have been completed, play "The Looming Shadow" main quest. You get the objective to go to bed before the final battle. You will get the "All Allies Joined" trophy during a cutscene when Aloy is sleeping. After completing the final mission, it will place you back before "The Looming Shadow" main quest, and it can be replayed as many times as desired. Thus, it is fine if you missed a side quest. You can still do the side quests after the final mission and then replay it. What makes this trophy missable is when you select wrong dialogue choices. Always choose "Heart" during all dialogues in main quests and side quests. Additionally, killing Nil in the "Cause For Concern" side quest does not impact the trophy. He does not count as an ally.Trophies
