How to get the Oseram Artificer Outfit in Horizon Forbidden West

To get the Oseram Artificer Outfit in Horizon: Forbidden West, you need to complete every Salvage Contract - beginning with Keruf's Salvage Unlimited.

These quests become available once you've completed the Main Quest, The Embassy, and Keruf can return to his main camp. You will then have to complete a series of Salvage Contracts for Larend, Runda, Handa and Danur who can each be found in a different location across the Forbidden West.

With the Salvage Contracts complete, you can return to the Salvage Camp near Barren Light.

When you arrive Keruf will be judging the armors forged by Larend, Runda, Handa, and Danur. Instead of declaring a winner, Keruf will say that the armors did not meet his requirements and will sell them instead.

Aloy suggests he combine all the good pieces of each armor to create a new one. Keruf agrees and together the Salvagers create the Oseram Artificer. They then give it to Aloy to try out.


Aloy has returned in Horizon: Forbidden West! To help you get started in her new quest, visit our pages on how levelling and skill points work, along with how to upgrade your inventory pouches. We’ve also looked at how to climb the Tallneck in Cinnabar Sands, cauldron locations and the door code for Death’s Door mission.
