Monster Hunter World guide: How to get Horizon Zero Dawn Aloy's bow

How to get Aloy's bow in Monster Hunter World.

Aloy’s bow from Horizon Zero Dawn is in Monster Hunter World, and it can be yours right now. As part of a limited time event, until players on PlayStation 4 can get their hands on the armor and bow of Aloy – but it’s a bit grindy so here's how to unlock Aloy's bow without much fuss. If you also want to get Aloy's armor in Monster Hunter World, we've got you covered there, too.

How to Unlock Aloy’s Bow in Monster Hunter World

To get your hands on Aloy’s bow from Horizon Zero Dawn, you will need to head to your Quest Board or Handler and go to the Event menu. In this menu you should find a quest titled “The Proving” which should ring a bell for anyone who’s played Horizon. It was also where the old event mission was listed and this is also how you can unlock Aloy’s armor!

This time-sensitive quest requires at least Hunter Rank 11, and takes place in the Ancient Forest where you have 50 minutes to hunt an Anjanath. Upon killing or trapping the Anjanath, you will receive an item called “Nova Brave Trophy”, which is essentially a ticket. In order to craft the bow, you will need to acquire 2 Nova Brave Trophies, which means completing the quest a minimum of two times for the bow alone.

The full list of materials needed to craft Aloy’s bow are:

  • Nova Brave Trophy x2
  • Anjanath Fang+ x3
  • Monster Keenbone x5
  • Anjanath Plate x1

You can actually get the majority of these items by killing the Anjanath as part of the quest, but if you’re struggling to get the Anjanath Plate, swing by the Melding Pot to craft one.
