The dungeons in this game have a little platforming gameplay. These dungeons are called Cauldrons, and completing these will give you enormous XP rewards.
Hunting Mechanical Animals.
The most exciting part of the Horizon franchise is taking down huge mechanical monsters. This activity also provides a huge XP boost. Locate monsters that are closer to your level and take them down to earn XP.
