Black Boxes are yet more collectibles that you will come across while journeying in Horizon Forbidden West. The following Horizon Forbidden West Black Box Locations guide will make sure to mark every single location of every Black Box and explain their uses as well.
What are Black Boxes in Horizon Forbidden West?
Black Boxes act as environmental puzzles and are one of the several collectibles in HFW. However, what makes them stand out from the rest is that they don’t need to be collected as a whole to reward you with Trophies.
You simply need to find one specific box to get rewarded with a Trophy associated with it, making them a useful item for your inventory.
How are Black Boxes Used in Horizon Forbidden West?
Once you have collected a Black Box in HFW, you must bring them to Untalla, who rewards you with valuables. Untalla is a Black Box Collector who can be found at the Memorial Grove.
Head to the location, go inside through the main entrance and make your way through the main hall to find the collector at the end.
