Horizon Forbidden West Hunting Grounds Locations

Want to know where to find all of the Hunting Grounds in Forbidden West? This Horizon Forbidden West Hunting Grounds Locations guide lists all of the locations for all four of the Hunting Grounds Trials so you can test your mettle against some of the games most interesting challenges.

Hunting Grounds are a feature from the original Horizon Zero Dawn game that challenges Aloy to complete a series of Trials in exchange for lots of rare and expensive material rewards. The Hunting Trials in Forbidden West are definitely a lot easier than Horizon Zero Dawn, but they are still just as worthwhile. It’s a great source of regular machine parts and helps to teach players about the various mechanics of the different weapons at Aloy’s disposal.
