How To Fly In Horizon Forbidden West

Flying Mounts Are In The Game

There are many different mounts in Forbidden West, but few top the ability to fly. This guide on How To Fly In Horizon Forbidden West will tell you everything you need to know to unlock and override the Sunwing, a flying mount that lets you soar through the skies of the Forbidden West.

In both Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West, you can unlock the ability to override most machines by unlocking data at Cauldrons. Each machine requires its own data. Some data is obtained intact and immediately allows Aloy to access the machine to override, others require you to craft upgrades to the spear as the data is corrupted. The Sunwing however, works a little differently.

How To Fly In Horizon Forbidden West


You need to complete the GEMINI Cauldron. The worst part about this aspect of getting a flying mount is that the cauldron is locked behind story progress. You can visit the Cauldron at any point but until you have completed the GEMINI Cauldron doing the main story quests, you won’t be able to enter. Completing the story missions at this location unlocks the Sunwing override. You can then use this data to craft the Sunwing override at your base.

Luckily, there is a Sunwing spawn right near your main base so once you have the ability to Override the Sunwing, you can then use it to fly across the skies and access it like a regular mount.

During the Death's Door story mission, there is a lab with a door locked by a code. This Horizon Forbidden West Death's Door Code will tell you where to find the code and what the code is so you can either solve it yourself or completely ignore the game wasting your time and throw the code straight into the door.
You can unlock face paint very early in Forbidden West but how do you put it on? This guide on How To Equip Face Paint In Horizon Forbidden West will tell you everything you need to know to get Aloy decked out in her war face so she can strike fear into the hearts of her foes.
Aloy's primary weapon is a deadly bow. You'll be fighting lots of machines on your adventure so ammo is always a problem. This guide on How To Craft Arrows In Horizon Forbidden West will tell you how the crafting system works, in relation to crafting more ammo for your bow, in case you missed or forgot the introductory sequence at the start of the game.
For one of the Raintrace Hunting Grounds Trials you need a Clawstrider Override. This guide on Where To Get The Clawstrider Override In Horizon Forbidden West will tell you which Cauldron you need to complete in order to unlock the ability to override the Clawstrider machine.
