Horizon Forbidden West: Items can now be picked up without animation

With the latest patch for “Horizon Forbidden West” Guerrilla Games mainly dealt with various bugs. Apart from that, the developers also introduced a new setting option. Oddly enough, this new feature wasn’t even listed in the patch notes. So that you do not miss it, we inform you in this article.

Save time looting – here’s how

Players can now collect items without going through an annoying animation each time. To do this, simply go to the general settings and disable the option “Pick up animations”. Once you’ve done that, you’ll immediately save a lot of time when looting. This is especially advantageous when using a mount, as it is no longer necessary to stop to pick it up.

The loot animation lasts a maximum of one second, but you can progress much faster in the long run without it. After all, there are plenty of items in the open game world that you want to collect. Many players appreciate this feature and will definitely use it.
