The Frozen Wilds features a variety of exciting and rewarding side content. This Horizon Zero Dawn Frozen Wilds Errands Guide focuses on the Errands elements of the side quests and activities, giving you details on where to find each Errand and how to complete them.
Much like the side quests, Errands appear on your compass as a green exclamation point. It usually involves speaking with a particular person or interacting with a specific object. Below is a list of all the different Errands we’ve discovered in Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds, including details on where to find them and how to complete them.
A Secret Shared
This Errand can be found in Song’s Edge, a short walk North of the campfire there. Speak with the Shaman there and he will tell you of a cave. Head way up North to the Drone Hanger. Once inside use the nearby panel to move the plane backwards. Climb across the wings to the second level, proceed through the door puzzle and continue on. Eventually you reach another plane. Search the front left side for the Mounted Rail special item.
The Claws Beneath
You can find this Errand in Longnotch, a small village to the East side of The Cut. Once you have reached the “Firebreak” part of the side quest for Frozen Wilds. Umnak asks you to take down a legendary machine that he was unable to defeat in his prime. When you arrive, it’s in the far North East side of The Cut, you will encounter a Daemonic Rockbreaker. It’s a really simple fight. Sneak up to the tower in the vicinity, disable it. Then stand on the platform using the upgraded Icerail with the Ice Shard ability. Hit the areas under his stomach and the glowing parts on the back of his tail. It’s a long fight but not a difficult one. Return to Longnotch to complete the Errand.
Geared Up: Stormslinger
You can find this Errand in Longnotch, a small village to the East side of The Cut. Once you have reached the “Firebreak” part of the side quest for Frozen Wilds. You can show your Stormslinger to Varga and she will offer to improve it if you help her take down a Stormbird. This is another Errand that has you returning to the old area. Simply take down a Stormbird and loot it, you shouldn’t struggle if you’ve gotten this far.
Geared Up: Icerail
You can find this Errand in Longnotch, a small village to the East side of The Cut. Once you have reached the “Firebreak” part of the side quest for Frozen Wilds. You can show your Icerail to Varga and she will offer to improve it if you help her take down a Thunderjaw. It’s not too far but it’s in the original area, not The Cut. It’s a low level Thunderjaw so you shouldn’t have any problems. Take it down, loot it and speak to Varga.
Out Of The Forge
After you complete the main story missions of The Frozen Wilds and you free Cyan, you will be told about several Fireclaws that escaped the Cauldron. This final Errand tasks you with hunting down and killing the 5 remaining Fireclaws.
That’s it for our Horizon Zero Dawn Frozen Wilds Errands Guide.
