Relic Ruins: The Daunt is the first puzzle box style activity you’ll have the chance to tackle in Horizon Forbidden West. It’s located to the southeast of Chainscrape and requires some smart crate work to solve. In this guide, we’ll take you through how to get the hotel code and complete Relic Ruins: The Daunt in Horizon Forbidden West.
Horizon Forbidden West Relic Ruins The Daunt guide
Relic Ruins: The Daunt is located inside the ruins of an old hotel building built out of a stone and wooden frame. It's very close to the location you'll need for the Vista Point in the Daunt. You’ll need to enter the open side of the building close to the crate on the ground. Start by dragging the crate into the main area of the building, next to the ledge with the yellow handhold and locked door above.
Climb up using the box and Aloy will realize that she needs both a key and the hotel code to access the door, so let’s get to finding them. Walk out onto the wooden balcony and jump over the gap to the other section of the house. Drop down through the hole next to the balcony and scan the datapoint at the back of the room here to get a note with the code.
Look up to see another box on the ledge to the left. Use your pullcaster to drag it down, then climb up to where it was located and squeeze through the metal doors for some valuable loot. Drop back down into the room you just came from a look at the far wall. You should see a vent with a beam to it’s right. Use your Pullcaster to pull down the beam and tear open the vent. Drag the box under the beam and use it to climb up and into the vent.
Once through the vent you’ll drop into another room with a hole in the floor. Drop down and head towards the climbing beams on the wall ahead. If you try to grab the base one, however, it will fall off. Instead, turn back and head into the darker underground section. Look up and use your pullcaster to collapse the floor above, creating a new hole.
Climb up and push the crate from the previous room down into the hole. You can then drag it over to the climbing wall. Climb up and onto the roof, then drop down to the wooden balcony on the side of the building to find the key. After you grab it, climb the side of the building to drop back to the other balcony and return to the locked door.
Relic Ruins: The Daunt door code
Once at the door, you’ll be prompted to enter the Relic Ruins: The Daunt door code. You can find this at the bottom of the datapoint you picked up during the puzzle (Relic Ruins datapoints have their own section in your inventory).
The door code you need is 1705
Enter to grab the loot and the artifact, completing the mission.
Those were the full steps to complete Horizon Forbidden West Relic Ruins: The Daunt, including how to get the hotel code. There are several other Relic Ruins scattered throughout the game’s map for Aloy to discover! Visit our hub page to find more useful tips and tricks.
