How to Complete the Deep Trouble Quest in Horizon Forbidden West
The Deep Trouble Side-quest in Horizon Forbidden West takes place in the northwest from the Landing Lift of the Daunt Mountains. Over there is a Quarry in Crimson Narrows. As you get close to it you will see two Miners and the Mine is up in smoke. On talking to the Miner named Korvend, the leader of the Miners, you find out that there was an explosion and the Mine started to flood. Also, there are 2 more Miners stuck inside. Your task is to rescue them. To do the Deep Trouble Side-quest in Horizon Forbidden West, you will have to be at least Lvl 5. If you are, you will be able to do the Side-quest. The Side-quest goes as follows.
Part 1: Find the Missing Miners
After talking to Korvend, you will have to enter the Mine. As you enter it, there will be a small passage on the left side. Go through it and you will come up to the flooded area. Follow the tracks to find a cave opening above the Water. In the water, there are a few crates you can loot, just bear in mind that you lose Oxygen the longer you are underwater.
