Horizon Forbidden West Plainsong Hunting Ground Guide

The second Horizon Forbidden West Hunting Grounds you'll come to are the Plainsong Hunting Grounds. To initiate the Hunting Ground quest, enter the city of Plainsong and talk with Ivinna. She'll be standing near the Stitcher, and tell you of the nearby Hunting Grounds. Before you go there, however, progress through the story and complete The Dying Lands quest, as the Hunting Grounds will be inaccessible until you've dealt with machines that have broken down the Corden and invaded around Plainsong.

Once you can access the Plainsong Hunting Grounds, follow the quest marker northwest of Plainsong to the trials. You earn Hunting Ground rewards for each challenge you complete, as well as PlayStation trophies for completing the trials. Horizon Forbidden West Hunting Grounds trophies include:

 

  • Obtained 3 Stripes at a Hunting Ground trophy when you earn full stripes at any Hunting Ground.
  • Obtained 3 Stripes at All Hunting Grounds trophy when you earn full stripes on every challenge at all Hunting Grounds.

To earn full stripes at the Plainsong Hunting Ground, you'll need to accomplish three stealth challenges under the set time limit.

Plainsong Hunting Ground Challenges in Horizon Forbidden West

 
 

In the Plainsong Hunting Ground Silent Looting Trial, you'll need to loot supply caches without alerting or damaging any machines. Use the environment, as well as smoke bombs, to stay hidden and sneak around the arena. To earn full stripes on the Silent Looting Trial you'll need to loot three supply caches in under 3:30. It's best to use one run to identify where the caches are in the arena, then plan your route to reach one. With a little patience, you should have plenty of time to get full stripes on the Plainsong Hunting Ground Silent Looting Trial. Take a look at our video on how we beat this trial below.

The Plainsong Hunting Grounds Silent Strike Trial Full Stripes Guide

For the Plainsong Hunting Grounds Silent Strike Trial, you'll need to kill machines without being detected. You can do this by either using the Silent Strike spear technique, or by striking from above. To earn full stripes on the Silent Strike trial, you'll need to silently take down three machines in under 1:30. To make this challenge easier, make sure you unlock the Silent Strike+ skill from the Infiltrator skill tree. Without it, your Silent Strikes won't be able to take down the machines in one hit.

The Plainsong Hunting Grounds Silent Gliding Trial Full Stripes Guide

To achieve full stripes in the Plainsong Hunting Grounds Silent Gliding Trial, you'll need to glide down undetected with your Shieldwing to kill two machines from above in under 1:00. Giving you just 30 seconds per kill, this challenge will put your time management and strategic skills to the test. To be most effective, use your Pullcaster to quickly reach the top of the pillars of the arena, giving you ample opportunity for aerial takedowns.
