Finding it hard to choose between Horizon Forbidden West explorer and guided pathfinding? Our guide will show you the pros and cons of both pathfinding systems, so you can make the best choice for your playstyle.

Horizon Forbidden West has a wide variety of settings to help make the game accessible to players. One set of options that governs how you find your way around the Forbidden West is the pathfinding options.

To understand the difference between Explorer and Guided Pathfinding here is Horizon Forbidden West Explorer vs Guided explained.

While in-game in Horizon Forbidden West, press pause and go to the Settings menu. Under General settings, in the Difficulty section, you will find both Pathfinding options. The two options are Quest Pathfinding and Waypoint Pathfinding. The difference is that Quest Pathfinding refers to the quest markers on your map, and Waypoint Pathfinding refers to the markers you can place on the map yourself.

As standard, both settings will be set to Explorer. You can change both or have different settings for either, that is up to you.

Horizon Forbidden West Explorer Vs Guided: What Is The Difference

The differences between the Horizon Forbidden West Explorer Vs Guided options are really about preference and convenience.

With Explorer, markers will appear on your HUD in the direction of the objective. For Quests, the icon is a yellow diamond, for Waypoints they are a yellow flag. If you check your map, you will see a set path from your location to the objective markers, but the icon on-screen is exactly where the objective is. This option lets you find your own way to your destinations without holding your hand and telling you exactly which roads to take.

If you choose Guided Pathfinding, instead of the icon pointing directly at your objective it will guide you along a convenient path to your destination. Following the icon, it will constantly update as you reach it, keeping you on the designated route. This is best used when you want to keep to the roads of the Forbidden West. If you are getting a bit sick of looking at your map every two seconds, this could be the option for you.

That is really everything there is to the Horizon Forbidden West Explorer Vs Guided options. For more on the game, why not learn how to unlock the God of War-inspired face paint in our Horizon Forbidden West Face Paint guide.
