Horizon Forbidden West is a second game to the Horizon series. With new quests, improved gameplay, and better weapons it’s quickly becoming a hit even among the new players. There are plenty of collectibles you can find in the game and some of them are even redeemable to get various weapons. One such collectible is the black box. Collecting 12 of these will get you a weapon – Wings of The Ten, as a reward. In this guide, we will help you get to all black box locations in Horizon Forbidden West to unlock the Wing of the Ten weapon.
Built around a dystopian machine-dominated society, knowing which ones of the machines are beneficial for you and which ones aren’t can be the difference between a good and bad gaming experience. The Tallnecks, for instance, open up new areas along with the map, and it’s extremely beneficial to know their locations to override them timely.
1. The Promontory
To get the Black box in The Promontory, you need to fix a damaged mount by using a power cell in from a rummage nearby. Once you’ve repaired the mount you can open the door. Inside the room, there will be vines covering the path to the black box. Use the vine cutter obtained in the main quest “Seeds Of The Past” to install the vine cuter module and clear the path to the collectible.
