Ohlgrud Smithsson is a character and an opponent in Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds.


At some point, Ohlgrud Smithsson lived in the Oseram settlement of Three Chains. While there, he apparently stole something and killed someone, following which he fled The Claim for the Cut. At that point, his property was seized, to be auctioned off at the next gathering of the ealdormen. In addition, a group known as the Gavels was dispatched to track him down.[1]

Living in The Cut

Sometime after arriving in the Cut, Ohlgrud commissioned a fellow Oseram, Varga of Longnotch, to build him a unique weapon capable of spitting fire like a Fire Bellowback. However, instead of completing the deal, he used the ruse of a phony progress report on his commission to lure Varga into a bandit ambush and stole the unfinished Forgefire from her.

Eventually, he became the leader of the Stone Yield bandit camp. He was eventually killed in battle by Aloy during her raid on the camp.

After the camp was cleared, a Banuk child named Opili found his helmet, which she kept to play with.
