Stormbirds can make things difficult for you in Horizon Forbidden West if you don’t know where they spawn. In this Horizon Forbidden West Stormbird Locations guide, we will tell you all about Stormbirds and their locations in Horizon Forbidden West. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.
Stormbirds spawn at multiple locations throughout the world of Horizon Forbidden West. You also get to face one Stormbird during the Second Verse side quest. Since they are at least level 30, it will be a while before you can take on a Stormbird and defeat it with ease.
If you have completed the Kappa Cauldron and have the Kappa Override, you can even override a Stormbird to have it fight at your side.
Stormbird Location, Legacy Landfall
The first Stormbird can be found northwest of Legacy’s Landfall, in the ruins of San Francisco. Stormbirds will be flying around the area, specifically near the destroyed bridge.
Stormbird Location, Maw of the Arena, and Memorial Grave
The second Stormbird can be found in the mountains in the west of the Maw of the Arena and Memorial Grave and north of the Raintrace North Rebel Camp.
How to Kill Stormbirds in Horizon Forbidden West
Stormbirds are bird-like flying, mechanical robots that have electric cannons and sharp talons used for combat. They can be found throughout the map of Horizon Forbidden West. Stormbirds are intimidating and need to be handled as soon as possible.
Stormbirds can be neutralized through acid or plasma arrows, but are strong against Fire, Frost and Shock damage. Use explosive spears once they are knocked down! They have hard outer casings and Wing Thrusters to gain additional speed, so be on your toes.
