Looking for geese in Horizon Forbidden West? Here's what you need to know.

Horizon Forbidden West features a hefty crafting system. Certain components that you collect throughout your jouney can be used to upgrade weapons, outfits, and pouches. While the majority of the materials are torn off components from wild machines, some can be sourced from more natural beings.

When upgrading things such as your potions pouch, resource pouch, and more, you'll need to make use of certain animal components. One such component can be found from geese which, if you want to upgrade a certain pouch, you'll need to locate.

Naturally, some animals and creatures can only be found in specific areas. Here's what you need to know.

Horizon Forbidden West: Where to Find Geese

If you're hunting for goose feathers or wishbones, you'll obviously need to find some geese. While some creatures can be found nearly all over, geese appear to be limited to a very specific spot.

To find geese you'll want to begin your search to the north of Scalding Spear. This is deep in Tenakth territory, so you'll need to have advanced to a certain point in the story before this location opens up to you. From what we can tell, this is the only spot where geese can be found.

Geese are pretty large birds so you shouldn't have too much difficulty identifying them when using your Focus. They're fairly slow moving when taking off, making them easier to shoot down compared to some smaller birds. That being said, approach them slowly with your bow drawn to increase your chances of securing the kill.

Like most creatures in Horizon Forbidden West, geese might not drop what you need first time around. You might need to take down a few in order for them to drop goose feathers or a goose wishbone.

Horizon Forbidden West is out now on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
