Horizon Forbidden West is the long-awaited sequel to 2017’s Horizon Zero Dawn. Horizon Forbidden West has raised the bar set by its predecessor, a game that was praised for its smooth and fun combat system, by adding even more combat mechanics. One of these is the Weapon Techniques mechanic.
Weapon Techniques are a combat mechanic that players can use to make their attacks more powerful and change the effect that their attacks have on enemies. They can come in handy and help players by boosting damage or effects in the right situations. Using different Weapon Techniques is a great way for players to change up their combat styles against different enemies, as well.
How to change Weapon Techniques in Horizon Forbidden West
Horizon Forbidden West has Weapon Techniques that can be changed by pressing L1, hovering over a weapon, and then pressing the D-Pad buttons. Weapon techniques can be unlocked in the game’s different skill trees. Players have to use skill points to purchase these, but they are well worth it.
