In this Horizon Forbidden West black box map location guide, we’ll show you the location of all 12 black boxes throughout the Daunt and the Forbidden West.
Horizon Forbidden West black boxes are flight data recorders left over from the Old World that hold a special cultural significance to the Tenakth.
Horizon Forbidden West black box locations
There are 12 black boxes in Horizon Forbidden West located in The Promontory, The Whitewatch Peaks, No Man’s Land, Jagged Deep, Bleeding Mark, Salt Bite, The Memorial Grove, The Stillsands, Bonewhite Tear, Stand of the Sentinels, The Raintrace, Isle of Spires.
While you might be able to find black boxes early on in The Daunt, you won’t be able to do anything with them until you reach The Memorial Grove in the center of the map. In the seventh Main Quest “The Broken Sky,” you’ll meet a Tenakth woman named Untalla in The Memorial Grove. She’ll explain what the black boxes are and why they’re important to her tribe.
As you collect them, you’ll be able to hand them over to her in exchange for valuable upgrade resources.
