Rebel Outposts are an open world activity in Horizon Forbidden West. There are no missable Rebel Outposts, and you can complete them at any time during the story, so don't worry if you've already finished Singularity. Rebel Outposts will automatically be marked on your map as you approach them. Despite inherent similarities, they are categorised differently to Rebel Camps, which are larger, more purpose-built missions. As part of our Horizon Forbidden West guide, we're going to detail all Rebel Outposts.

Horizon Forbidden West: All Rebel Outposts Guide 5

All Rebel Outposts follow the same format. Upon entering the camp enclosure, you'll need to find the Outpost Leader. The Outpost Leader can usually be discerned from the other rebels in the camp due to wearing more elaborate armour. There are three types of Outpost Leader that you'll face:

  • Heavily Armed: This type of Outpost Leader will be equipped with machine weaponry, and will inflict massive damage if you get hit. The advantage is that, once taking down, you can then loot that machine weaponry to clear out the rest of the Rebel Outpost.
  • Shielded: This type of Outpost Leader will be equipped with a shield. The best way to deactivate the shield is to target it with Shock damage. Once the shield is down, you can use either melee or arrows to defeat the Outpost Leader.
  • Melee Focused: This type of Outpost Leader will carry a large hammer or spear, and will be particularly deadly in close encounters. It's best to keep your distance and go for headshots with your bow-and-arrow.

Upon defeating an Outpost Leader, you should always loot their body. Sometimes they'll have Soldier Tags on their person, other times you'll loot a key which can then be used on a purple chest someone in the camp. These purple chests will always have Soldier Tags inside them.

Once you have the Soldier Tags, you'll have two options. You can defeat the remaining rebels in the area, or you can make a hasty escape. Aloy will ultimately acknowledge that, without their Outpost Leader, the camp will disband anyway, thus it'll be marked as complete on your map. It's up to you whether you decide to defeat any leftover rebels or not.
