Some of the new challenges added to Horizon Forbidden West's map are called Relic Ruins. Relic Ruins can be found all over the map and will force players to complete puzzles and traverse obstacles to find the collectible held within each Ruin. The steps that will need to be taken to complete the Relic Ruins: Restless Weald are listed below:
- Approach the Relic Ruin from the southern side. Note the number (1923) hanging on the structure as they are actually the Door Codes and will be needed later to unlock the room containing the collectible. This can be a bit confusing, as the number seems to read 1623, but the '6' was originally a '9' that has come unhinged and has fallen down.
- First, players should head to the northeast of the Ruins. This will take them to an old train car and tracks. Aloy will comment on them, which should let players know they are in the correct place.
- Once the train car is found, players should move it to the back of the track. It will be pushed near the building at first and will need to be moved, either by hand or by using the Pullcaster. There will be a grated blue surface on the train car where the Pullcaster can be attached to.
- Once players have moved the train car to the back of the tracks, they will need to use the track switcher so that the train car can go straight forward when pushed, rather than back to its starting position. The track switcher can be found right next to the train car's new position at the back of the track.
- Once the tracks are switched, move the train car all the way forward. At this point, it should be next to the building and should provide enough of a boost to get to the grab points on the side of the building.
- When the car is in place, jump to the upper platform and move across the rope connecting this platform and the next. Once across, the Key Module should be directly ahead on this platform.
- Once the Key Module is obtained, players should jump down to the ground floor and look for a ladder that leads to a second platform above them. The ladder will have a red latch that players can shoot to drop the ladder down a bit.
- Players still won't reach this ladder from the ground and will need to use the grab points in this room to climb up to it. If standing at the ladders base, turn directly around and focus to spot the glowing orange grab points.
- Use these orange grab points to get up to the next level. This is where players should find the locked door. Open the keypad using the Key Module and then input the Door Code (1923) and the door should unlock and open.
- Once the door is open, jump through and use the zipline to enter a new area. Once in the new room, players should locate the Firegleam on the back wall and use the Spear's Igniter upgrade to set it off. This should open the wall up and allow the train car (mentioned in Steps 2-5) to be wheeled into the area.
- Travel back to where the train car was left and wheel it back to the back of the train track. Use the track switch to change the car's direction. This will allow players to wheel it into the newly opened room.
- Use the train car that was just moved to get up to the next platform. Players will need to scan with the focus and then use the orange grab points to scale around to the collectible ornament platform.
Where to find the Relic Ruins: Restless Weald
The Relic Ruins: Restless Weald can be found just to the northwest of Plainsong. Players will come across this Relic Ruin pretty early in the game, but it is important to note that it is only completable once they have obtained to Igniter upgrade for their Spear.
Where to find the Key Module
The Key Module can be found by following the outline above until Step 6. The Key Module will be on an upper platform of the interior of the building. You can reach it by moving a training car from outside and getting a boost up to the platform adjacent to it.
Where to find the Door Code
The Door Code, mentioned in Step 1, can actually be found just by approaching the Ruins. By reading data points inside the structure, players will discover that the Door Code is the year that the train yard was built. When approaching the building from its southern side, players can spot that year (1923) in large characters above the building's original entrance.
What is the reward for Relic Ruins: Restless Weald?
All of the Relic Ruins in Horizon Forbidden West will result in players obtaining Ornaments. Which Ornament players get depends on the Relic Ruin completed. The Relic Ruins: Restless Weald will reward players with Ornament: Restless Weald.
These Ornaments are used later in the game once players reach the camp in Las Vegas and also complete the Nights of Lights quest. Players can redeem the Ornaments by talking to an NPC named Stemmur, who can turn the Ornaments into beautiful light shows. These collectibles are pretty cosmetic in nature and won't have a large effect on gameplay.
