Horizon Zero Dawn Corruptors – How to Defeat

These four legged robots are some of the most dangerous looking enemies in the game and they also have the abilities to back up their sinister looks. Like all corrupted machines, the Corruptors are extremely vulnerable against all fire sources.

The best way to take down a Horizon Zero Dawn Corruptor is to use Fire Arrows against it. Another quite useful trick is to force the Corruptor to charge Aloy and once it jumps in the air and is about to land, place a trap on the ground which will get triggered and deal massive damage to the Corruptor.

Throughout the fight, the Corruptor will occasionally shoot grenades on the ground through a small canister at its back.

Players need to be quick on their feet to roll away from those explosions and it will be really helpful if they can focus on the canister early on in the fight and try to destroy it to reduce the time spent dodging those grenades.

The Corruptor will also use its tail to pick up rocks and throw them at the player but thankfully, the tail can also be targeted and destroyed. Both the grenade launcher and the tail can be torn down to minimize the number of different attacks the robot can perform.

When facing off against a Corruptor in a crowded area, it is best to avoid the Corruptor first and focus on other easy enemies like Watchers and Striders as the Corruptor can take control of them and make fighting the entire group a nightmare.

Once the smaller enemies have been defeated, the Corruptor can be focused upon. While its entire body is vulnerable to fire damage, the heat core right between the Corruptor’s eyes is its weakest spot and any type of damage done there will be significant.

Taking out a Corruptor can take some time since players will have to constantly dodge its fast and devastating area attacks but if they stay patient and focus on keeping their distance while constantly using ranged attacks and traps to whittle down the robot’s health, no fight should prove too tough.
