The Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds Collaboration Quest Part 2 went live earlier today on PS4. Unlike the Resident Evil 2 collaboration, this one is PS4 exclusive. This event is a multiple part event with the first and second parts live now. The third part goes live later this month. Today’s quest lets you unlock new armor, new palico equipment, and upgrade your older event weapon for use in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne on PS4. Here’s how to unlock everything from the Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds collaboration part 2 in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne.
How to clear The Survivor quest
While Into the Frozen Wilds had you taking on a Zinogre, The Survivor quest has you hunting a Stygian Zinogre. The quest takes place in the Hoarfrost Reach and is pretty standard. There will be another monster but the quest is very simple if you already know how to deal with the regular Zinogre.
One important thing to keep in mind is stocking up on nulberries for the hunt. Stygian Zinogre inflicts dragonblight so make sure you use a nulberry. Stygian Zinogre attack patterns are very similar to Zinogre but it has a few extra moves. One has Stygian Zinogre perform an area-of-effect burst attack that will inflict you with dragonblight. There are spots on the ground that light up indicating that the attack is coming up so it is easy to avoid. The other move to get used to is a spear like move where Stygian Zinogre does a fast charge at you.
The Dragonproof mantle or dragon resistance in any form will help you here. You will earn Bluegleam (event item) and Stygian Zinogre materials through this quest.
How to earn Bluegleam
You can earn Bluegleam by completing the Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds The Survivor quest which has been detailed above.
How much Bluegleam do you need to unlock everything?
You need 7 Bluegleam to unlock everything in this part of the collaboration quest. You earn a few pieces of it in each successful hunt in The Survivor event quest.
