Being a very large open word, in Horizon: Zero Dawn you can find various items but some are special in that, if you resell them to specific merchants, you will receive rewards of a certain value. In this guide we will explain where to find these particular items and which are the merchants to be able to resell these and other useful loot in the Guerrilla game.
Throughout the story you will collect three different sets of items which are i Ancient vessels, Banuk statuettes and Metal Flowers. These things can be exchanged from the merchant in Sundial, but only after you have faced the main mission called "A seeker at the gates". Each time you sell one you will receive a chest in exchange that will contain rare items useful for your paraphernalia.
Here are the guides dedicated to Ancient Vessels, Banuk Statuettes and Metal Flowers:
- Ancient vessels
- Banuk statuettes
- Metal Flowers
Since it will not always be easy to find them, especially considering their position, sometimes complicated as for the Banuk Statuettes, it will be more convenient to buy the specific maps from the merchant who is located just outside Embrace. These maps will be a valid help because they will indicate the approximate position of the objects to be searched, then you will be able to find the right location with your ability as players.
Only when you have completed a set can you sell it. The merchant Kudiv will buy you the Metal Flowers, Palas the Ancient Vessels and Cantarah the Banuk Figurines. We also remind you that completing these collectibles will earn you the related Trophies.

Skins and bones: they are among the most difficult to find. Animals are rare and most of the time you will find little meat and small bones of little consequence. Whenever you see an animal, catch it because anything you fix will still be an interesting loot. Fish bones are harder to find because you will spend little time in the water. Therefore, if you need parts of fish you will have to fish specifically.
