Horizon Forbidden West: How to Holster Your Weapon

Combat is undoubtedly a key component of Horizon Forbidden West, but it doesn’t always require a bow and arrow to figure things out. Aloy’s investigative prowess might work better in certain situations, and if you like not always swinging your arms and you like your heroine to be less aggressive when she introduces herself, here’s how to holster your weapon in Horizon Forbidden West.


How to holster your weapon in Horizon Forbidden West

It makes sense to have quick access to your weapons when you’re out in the wild, with threats always able to surprise you from all directions. However, in quieter moments, you may want Aloy to put away the gear for him to enjoy a stroll through the beautiful environments created by the developers.


Sheathing your weapons in the game is quite simple and follows the same steps as in the first game.


  • Draw your equipped weapon.
  • Hold down the L1 button to bring up the weapon wheel and click the right analog stick/R3.
  • Your weapon will now be holstered.

Simple and easy, now you can truly proclaim that you come in peace with your bows and other weapons safely stored out of sight.

That’s everything you need to know about how to holster your weapon in Forbidden Horizon West.
