I. What are Tallnecks in Horizon Forbidden West?
Horizon Forbidden West‘s Tallnecks are one of the most iconic parts of the Horizon world. Their tall stature and the fact that you had to climb in the first game made them one of the most interesting and enjoyable activities in Horizon Zero Dawn.
II. Where can we find the Tallnecks in Horizon Forbidden West?
There are a total of six (6) Tallnecks. They aren’t wandering around; all you need to do is to activate them. But note the fact that none of the Tallnecks are missable.
Another important point to note is that you find the markings of only 5 Tallnecks on the map. The marking of the 6th Tallneck is not present on the map. It is a hidden Tallneck. We will get it automatically when completing this Cauldron.
You can go to four (4) of the Tallnecks at any time after unlocking the Glider in Main Quest 4: The Embassy. You can still find all of them after the story. The 5th Tallneck “The Shining Wastes” is in the middle of the map. It is automatically overridden at the end of the story. You can’t reach it any earlier, it’s story exclusive.
