All Legendary Weapons and Locations – Horizon Forbidden West

The choice of your weapons is a very important criterion in Horizon Forbidden West, as they can totally transform your ability to defeat machines quickly and to exploit their weaknesses.

You can have a total of 9 weapons in your weapon wheel, so you will have to find and take the best of them to have a complete and complementary arsenal.

There are several types of weapons in the game (bow, slingshot, spears, etc.) and each type can have several elemental specialties (gel, acid, tear, etc.).

Weapons also have rarity levels indicated by the color of the weapon from green (common) to orange (legendary).
