Trophy list and Trophy Guide

Horizon has a great variety of Trophies, and we’ve got a complete breakdown of all of them, with notes on how to get them.


 

Platinum

  • All Trophies Obtained - Get all other trophies in the game (DLC not required)

Gold

  • Blazing Sun at all Grounds - Earn a Blazing Sun badge for every trial at the Hunting Grounds. Our guide has a section on how to do this as painlessly as possible!

  • Ended the War Machine Threat - Complete the final main quest of the game, The Face of Extinction

 

Silver

  • All Cores Overridden - Find and override all Cauldron Cores, the manufacturing plants for the Machines. For a detailed breakdown of the different Cauldrons, check out our Cauldron section

  • All Corrupted Zones Cleared - Kill all the Corrupted Machines in every Corrupted Zone around the map. There are 11 Corrupted Zones in all, and if you need help taking out the Machines, take a look at our enemy guide.

  • All Suns at all Grounds - Earn at least Half Sun badges at every Hunting Ground trial

  • All Tallnecks Overriden - Find, scale and override all the Tallnecks on the map. FOr more details, check out our guide on the Tallnecks

  • All Bandit Camps Cleared - Find and clear all bandit camps around the map. There are 6 bandit camps in total and overriding Tallnecks will reveal them on the map. To clear a bandit camp you need to kill every bandit in the camp. This is a good opportunity to get the Headshot 30 Humans Trophy

 

Bronze

  • 10 Vulnerable machine kills - Basically, some Machines are weak to a certain kind of elemental damage and if you kill either one that’s vulnerable to burning whilst it’s burning, or vulnerable to freeze when it’s frozen, it’ll count. To help you, here’s a list of Machines you can target for this Trophy:

    • Weak to Fire:

      • Sawtooth

      • Glinthawk

      • Corruptor

      • Ravager

      • Snapmaw

      • Deathbringer

      • Corrupted Machines

    • Weak to Freeze:

      • Trampler

      • Fire Bellowback

      • Rockbreaker

  • 3 Strikes From Above - Kill 3 enemies using the Strike from Above skill. This is a Trophy you’re very likely to just acquire over your game playing time. However, if you want to farm it out, the Valleymeet Hunting Grounds will provide you with plenty of Grazers to land on.

  • 7 types of machine overridden - Unlocked and used the overrides for 7 different types of machine. This is definitely easiest to obtain after you’ve overridden all the Cauldrons as it will give you the most options. Once you’ve done that, just find 7 separate types of Machine and override them to get this Trophy.

  • Aided the defectors - Aided the escapes of Uthid and the child king Itamen from the Shadow Carja. Complete the Queen’s Gambit sidequest to get this Trophy

  • All Acquisition machines killed - See the “All Machines Catalogued” Trophy

  • All Combat machines killed - See the “All Machines Catalogued” Trophy

  • All Recon machines killed - See the “All Machines Catalogued” Trophy

  • All Transport machines killed - See the “All Machines Catalogued” Trophy

  • All Machines Catalogued - Encountered and Focus scanned every type of machine. The game - helpfully - doesn’t actually tell you what category each Machine falls into, so you can’t track your progress on the “All X type of Machines killed” Trophies. The way around this is to simply make sure you’ve killed every type of Machine in the catalogue. We have an Enemy Machine guide that’ll help you in getting this Trophy.

  • All allies joined - Given Aloy's actions, all possible optional allies joined the defense. This means completing 11 sidequests before you commit to the final quest. Once you’ve completed all of them, the Trophy should unlock when Aloy goes to sleep. The quests are:

    • Traitor’s Bounty

    • Queen’s Gambit

    • Sun and Shadow

    • Honor the Fallen

    • A Moment's Peace

    • Sunstone Rock

    • A Daughter’s Vengeance

    • Hunting For the Lodge

    • Hunters Blind

    • Deadliest Game

    • Redmaw

  • Downed 23 Grazer dummies - Found and knocked over all of the Grazer training dummies in the Nora region. Check our Collectibles section to get a detailed guide on their locations

  • All Skills learned - Learned all available skills. This is actually a fairly simple Trophy to complete. Quests will often reward you with skill points as well as exp, and if you complete all sidequests and the Hunting Grounds, you’ll get this no bother.

  • First Tallneck Overridden - Scaled a Tallneck and accessed its information. Override any Tallneck and rappel down from it to get this Trophy

  • Headshot 30 human enemies - Killed 30 human enemies by landing headshots on them. This Trophy will most likely unlock as you play through the game, but if not, your best option is to have the Concentration skill, then go take on some bandit camps. There’s a plethora of human enemies to kill with headshots in these areas.

  • Hunted Redmaw with Talanah - Rose through the ranks of the Hunters Lodge and helped Talanah defeat Redmaw. Complete the full Hunter’s Lodge questline, including Red Maw, to get this Trophy.

  • Reached level 10 - Reached player level 10

  • Reached level 25 - Reached player level 25

  • Reached level 40 - Reached player level 40

  • Reached level 50 - Reached player level 50. Levelling up in the game isn’t hugely difficult, especially if you aim for getting all Blazing Suns in the Hunting Grounds. Each Blazing Sun is worth 17,500 exp so if you complete all the Grounds, that’s a huge amount of levels already. Complete all the sidequests and errands and by the time you get near the end of the game, the main quest should finish off any exp you need, no grinding required!

  • Stealth killed 10 machines - Performed a stealth kill on 10 machines. This is a Trophy that is likely to just unlock as you play, but if you want to farm it out, your best bet is it to go to either the Nora or Valleymeet Hunting Grounds then use the Silent Strike skill on Watchers and other weak enemies. So long as you either get a Silent Strike that kills or a one shot bow kill on a blue eyed Machine, it counts as a stealth kill.

  • Tore off 10 components - Detached 10 components from machines during combat. Another one that you’ll likely get as you play, but just in case, if you want to make sure you get it, load up on Tearblast arrows and start shooting some weaker enemies like Grazers. You’ll pull of a load of components quickly and the Trophy will be yours before you know it.

  • Tore off 5 heavy weapons - Detached 5 heavy weapons from machines during combat. The bigger combat machines like the Thunderjaw have heavy weapons attached to them, and you can rip these off. Thunderjaws are the easiest to get this Trophy with because they have two disc launchers on either side that come off with one Tearblast arrow to each. Fight 3 Thunderjaws and you’ll get this Trophy in no time.
