UltraWeave Armor in Horizon: Zero Dawn is, without a doubt, one of the best outfits in the game. It’s basically an experimental personal armor with Nano-fiber construction and an inlaid microproject network.

UltraWeave Armor has incredible damage absorption, allowing you to stay relevant in the heat of the battle for extended durations of time.

However, it’s not 100% invincible and will get damage if you don’t dodge away when the armor starts flashing red. This guide details how to get this best armor in Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Horizon: Zero Dawn UltraWeave Armor Location

In our HZD UltraWeave Armor Location Guide, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about finding all the required Power Cells to unlock the game’s best armor.

To begin, you need to head over to a cave located in the Devil’s Thirst ancient ruins. Once inside, you should be able to find a high-tech facility inside the cave. According to Aloy, the facility was built up by the Old Ones.

Once in there, you should be able to see the UltraWeave Armor in plain sight. However, you can’t access the armor because it’s locked and requires you to find a handful of Power Cells.

At this point, you should be able to start a quest called Ancient Armory. Do note that the high-tech facility you seek is located on the southern side of the Devil’s Thirst, near a lake.

Coming back to the Ancient Armory quest, it basically requires you to find 5 Power Cells. However, the game doesn’t tell you the exact locations of these Power Cells which is where things get a bit tricky.

Power Cells Locations

Power Cell #1 – The Underground Facility you fell into as a child; simply head back to this high-tech facility through the bunker doors and you will find your path blocked by a bunch of stalactites. Smash them and you can find the first power cell right in front of you.

Power Cell #2 – Found in All-Mother Mountain during The Proving Quest. Instead of following Teersa, head straight towards the locked door; to the left you will see a tunnel, crawl through it and you will be able to find the second power cell.

Power Cell #3 – Found at the Grave-Hoard during the Grave-Hoard Quest. After solving the three puzzles in the main quest, go through the doors and into the left corridor where you will find the power cell down and about.

Power Cell #4 – Found at the tip of Faro Skyscraper during the Maker’s End Quest. Once outside, go up the platforms at the bottom leading to the tip of the skyscraper

Power Cell #5 – Found inside a Secret Purple Area during The Mountain that Fell Quest. Go to GAIA Prime where you will find a hologram. Take the stairs and avoid the zipwire; use the ledge to your left, and move to the edge of the cliff. Drop down the ledge onto the secret path and take the path going down to the left. Head right from here, jumping onto the higher platform and you will find a power cell inside the purple-lit room.

Armor Door Puzzle

Head back to the ruins and slot the two power cells into the broken hologram slots. Swivel the holograms into the required position to make the doors open; to your right, you will be able to see 24-hour time codes:

  • 1200
  • 1500
  • 1800
  • 2100
  • 0000

Imagine the room as a clock and match the position of the holographic locks to the stated time codes. The red sections must be moved from right to left in this order; top, right, bottom, left, and top.

Armor Clamps

Through to the left of the room you will be able to find more holographic looks (A total of 5), put the three remaining power cells and you will see another set of codes:

  • 90
  • 270
  • 360
  • 450
  • 630

These are angles, turn the red sections to the positions; right, left, top, right, and left. Complete the quest, and voila; you have yourself the entire set of Ultraweave armor!
