Horizon Forbidden West follows a Crafting mechanic similar to Zero Dawn where players will have to upgrade Pouches to increase carrying capacity for various items. Each Pouch upgrade will require specific materials that can be gathered by hunting wildlife and exploring the map. 

Increasing the carrying capacity for Pouches allows players to have more Ammunition, Traps, and Potions ready at their disposal. Most of the Pouches will require different resources which can be acquired by hunting wild animals. Pouches can be upgraded at Workbenches and require Metal Shards and special animal resources.
