All trophies in Horizon Forbidden West and how to earn them?

Gather up, trophy hunters. The time to be fully immersed in a critically acclaimed Horizon Forbidden West to get your money’s worth has now arrived! Whether you’re in it for the bragging rights or a sense of accomplishment, trophies never desist from enhancing the gaming experience and are always fun to obtain. 

Thankfully, the same is applicable to Aloy’s apocalyptic world as well. The title comes packed with a long list of trophies that are relatively straightforward to earn. So, how many achievements are there to attain in Horizon Forbidden West? 

There are a total of 59 trophies to unlock in Horizon Forbidden West, which consists of 50 Bronze accolades, 7 Silver laurels, 1 Gold, and 1 Platinum trophy. Complete the main story quests and several trophy-related missions to get hands on them.  

Also, in what is good news, the level of difficulty will not affect the trophy count, ensuring you can play as Aloy on any of the available settings and still bag all the awards.  

On top of this, you should also know that it’s possible to transfer trophies from PS4 to PS5 while playing Horizon Forbidden West. Sadly, the same cannot be said if you are looking to downgrade to the current gen from PS5.

While these trophies are uncomplicated to attain, it does not mean what you’re looking at is a walk in the park. Like any other PlayStation game, even Horizon Forbidden West features a missable trophy. Here’s all you need to know about it: 

5. Does Horizon Forbidden West have any missable trophies?

The only missable/hidden trophy in Horizon Forbidden West is ‘All Machine Type Scanned.’ As the name suggests, players will have to scan all types of machines in the game to obtain it. 

This silver trophy is so tricky to acquire because of the two machines, Specter and Specter Prime, that only appear in the final mission and don’t have open world spawns. Ensure to scan these machines before defeating them to get the missable accolade. 

It must be kept in mind that if you die during the middle of scanning, your progress won’t be saved, and you’ll be back to square one. 

In case you miss out on scanning and are unable to grab the trophy, you will have to play the entire game again, unfortunately. Therefore, it is recommended that you manually save Horizon Forbidden West before starting its final quest, Singularity.
