Horizon Forbidden West Top 5 best weapons (Legendary)


Last Updated:

Right, we have all had a little time to spend with Horizon Forbidden West so we should be beginning to get a feel for the kinds of weapons we prefer using. There are some really strong armaments in the game but not all are easily obtainable. Here we are going to give you some pointers on what we believe are the best, and where possible, how to obtain them so you spend less time looking for them, and more time actually killing with them.

Horizon Forbidden West Best weapons

If you are looking for the best weapons in Horizon Forbidden West the best starting point for most people will be the ones the game denotes as ‘Legendary’. It may well be that over the course of the game you develop your own affinity for one that isn’t ranked as such, but as a rule, these are a good starting point.

You can tell the game ranks a weapon as Legendary as their background in the inventory will be orange. If you look a bit further you should notice the stats of the weapons is also considerably higher than what you may be used to.

Let’s have a look at WePC’s Top 5 best weapons in Horizon Forbidden West
