Keruf’s Salvage Unlimited is a Salvage Contract located in Barren Light and provided by Keruf in Horizon Forbidden West. You’ll probably find it during The Embassy, but you won’t be able to finish it until you’ve entered the Forbidden West. We’ll go over all you need to know about Keruf’s Salvage Unlimited as part of our Horizon Forbidden West tour.
1. Keruf’s Salvage Unlimited: Walkthrough
After finishing The Embassy and entering the Forbidden West, chat with Larend to obtain your first set of Salvage Contracts. Keruf’s Salvage Unlimited, unlike the other tasks in Horizon Forbidden West, is broken into a series of Salvage Contracts, each offered by a different merchant. We’ve provided a list of All Contracts below.
The following are the key quest givers who contribute to Keruf’s Salvage Unlimited:
Each Salvage Contract is similar to a fetch quest in that you must travel to a certain place to loot stuff from a specific machine or retrieve a lost item. The whole Salvage Contracts will be added as a Datapoint to your Focus. Also, it’s recommended to go through each one before leaving on your mission to discover a bit more about what’s necessary.
Return to Keruf in the Barren Light Salvage Camp, where Larend is stationed, once you’ve completed all 17 Salvage Contracts issued by all four Salvage Contractors. After a brief cutscene, you’ll be rewarded with the Oseram Artificer.
