List of Machine Creatures in Horizon

Alloy, the main character and awesome robot hunter from the Guerrilla Games open-world adventure Horizon: Zero Dawn, faces some unique challenges. Regular, run-of-the-mill animals such as deer and turkey are terrifying enough as it is without adding this world’s machinated animal hybrids into the mix.

If you expect to progress in this strange world then you’ll need to know about all the various Machines available to hunt. Here’s a safe and sane rundown of the various Machine types and what to look out for while hunting out in the wild.
Watchers
The name says it all: These small sentry-type creatures are able to detect threats, then report danger back to larger, more hostile Machines. They lack weapons, but that doesn’t stop watchers from tackling humans.

Striders
One of the first Machines shown in the initial Horizon:Zero Dawn trailers, the strider resembles a horse, and it travels in packs across the lands. Alloy can tame and ride these robo-beasts, but they can also be used for baiting out larger predators.

Grazers
Another peaceful, pack animal, grazers are hunted by humans for the energy canisters on their backs. This energy is pulled from the grass and plants the creature grazes on while moving across the land.

Scrappers
The scrapper is the hyena of the Horizon:Zero Dawn world, surviving off the crashed corpses of Machines like the Glinthawk to survive. These beasts also possess a piercing laser attack, becoming a dangerous problem when dealing with packs.
