Mysteries of the Old Ones

Meet the Machines

The world of Horizon Zero Dawn is inhabited by machines of all shapes and sizes. Terrifyingly alien yet strikingly familiar, these mysterious automatons combine mechanical strength with organic features and an animalistic ferocity. Here are some of the machines you will encounter.

WEAPONCRAFT

Wield Exotic Weapons

In Horizon Zero Dawn, primitive materials are combined with high-tech components to produce highly effective hunting weapons. Take down machines many times your size by making smart use of your arsenal of modifiable weapons, including the Hunter Bow, the Sling and the Ropecaster.

Hunter Bow

The Hunter Bow is a lightweight, low-powered bow capable of firing regular arrows, fire arrows and hardpoint arrows. It is particularly effective against unarmored humans and animals.

Ropecaster

The Ropecaster is ideal for temporarily slowing down or immobilizing targets. The arrow on one end of the rope is fired at the target, while the arrow on the other end is fired into the ground.

Stealth Takedowns

Enemies like this Watcher act as sentries and a warning system to other machines nearby. By avoiding their gaze and sneaking up, Aloy can deliver a lethal, (mostly) silent takedown. Dispatching enemies this way prevents the larger group from realizing the hunters have just become the hunted.
