Horizon Forbidden West follows right after Zero Dawn, and the Crafting mechanism works similarly in both games. Players can purchase materials from Merchants or collect them throughout their expedition in Horizon Forbidden West.

Crafting is one of the primary mechanics in the game, and it is ideal to stock up the inventory with enough materials to craft at any time. Taking down machines will reward players with Metal Shards, rare modifications, and other valuable resources like Blaze Canisters, Echo Shells, Chillwater. Make sure to hunt animals to get all variants of Meat to increase ammunition, potion, trap pouches by Crafting.

Completed three academic degrees with five stars, like they were side quests in the final Boss mission. I could write a book on the FPS genre featuring CS:GO, Fortnite, Warzone, Apex, VALORANT, COD and PUBG - the greatest chapter would feature the futility and impact of the S&D format.
