Hunters' Blind is a side quest in Horizon Zero Dawn.


After delivering her first set of trophies to Ahsis, Aloy speaks to Talanah, who tells her that instead of going after Redmaw, there is something else that needs attending to. Meeting her Hawk outside, Talanah introduces Aloy to Ilsadi, a Carja villager from Lone Light seeking assistance from the Hunters Lodge in clearing out a flock of Glinthawks ravaging the village. Accepting the request, Talanah tells Aloy that she will meet her in Lone Light.

Aloy arrives at Lone Light just as a flock of Glinthawks swoops down into the village. After taking care of the machines together with Talanah, Ilsadi only tells them that regardless of their efforts and of those before them, more always come, with the guards of Morning's Watch no longer bothering to help defend the village.

Noticing the machines came from upriver, Aloy offers to investigate. To her surprise Talanah urges her to go alone, saying that she will remain in Lone Light in the event more Glinthawks come.

Travelling upriver, Aloy encounters another flock of Glinthawks as well as discovering an abundance of Snapmaw carcasses. Following a trail up the rocks, Aloy meets Vashad and Omas, the two Snapmanw Hunters. Vashad explains that he borrowed shards to buy seeds for his farm but his harvest failed, leaving him with nothing to pay off his debt. With the threat of losing everything he owns, including his farm, Vashad turned to hunting for Snapmaw Hearts to pay his loan. Despite learning that the carcasses are attracting Glinthawks, Vashad refuses to leave before he has what he's looking for, with more hunters emerging from hiding.

Aloy suggests a compromise, offering to get Vashad the last Snapmaw Heart he needs in return for him and his hunting party leaving the site. Alternatively Aloy can choose the other option, asking the hunters to leave with the hunting party refusing, and attacking Aloy instead.

As promised, once the part is delivered, the party leaves. Talanah then approaches Aloy, revealing that she was watching the whole time. Impressed with Aloy's performance, she agrees to take her under her wing, with Aloy as her Thrush.

Meeting back at the Lodge, they report back to Ahsis, with Talanah announcing that she will be sponsoring Aloy who is then officially made a Thrush and a member of the Lodge.
