Your Focus Is Everything
Horizon Zero Dawn Combat Tips and Tricks
Horizon Zero Dawn’s combat is a heck of a lot harder if you ignore Aloy’s Focus. By pressing R3, you’ll be able to scan hostile machines, pinpoint their weak points, identify elemental weaknesses, check what level they are, and track their patrol routes.
By using all of this, you can begin to devise and plant traps that will make that swarm of machines much more manageable. Knowing what weapons will best exploit these weaknesses is also key, so don’t be afraid to check your ammo inventory and reading up on what you have at your disposal.
