Horizon Wiki

"Now that you're a Thrush, you should improve your reputation."

Deadliest Game is an errand in Horizon Zero Dawn.


Now that Aloy is a Thrush, Talanah instructs Aloy to bring in trophies from bigger machines, namely a Thunderjaw and Stormbird.

After retrieving the trophies, Aloy returns to the Hunters Lodge to deliver them to Ahsis. To her surprise, Talanah is nowhere to be seen and so too is Ahsis as she searches for the Sunhawk upstairs to no avail.

Speaking to Ligan, he informs her that Ahsis left for the Spearshafts after catching wind of Redmaw's whereabouts, with Talanah following him not long after. Ligan also tells Aloy that a number of outlanders followed Talanah, with Aloy concluding that Ahsis must have sent them after her to slow her down.

Determined to help her Hawk, Aloy sets off for the Spearshafts.
