In our Horizon Zero Dawn Deathbringer Guide, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about defeating Deathbringer in the game.

Horizon Zero Dawn Deathbringer – How to Defeat

Deathbringers are not only vulnerable to fire attacks like most robots in Horizon Zero Dawn but also extremely weak against shock damage. While other robots do take shock damage and get stunned, a Deathbringer can actually be killed with just Shock attacks.

Of course like every other robot out there, its armor needs to be removed first and that is where Tearblast arrows come in. Alternate between Tearblast, Shock and Fire arrows and pretty soon the Deathbringer will have exposed all its orange glowing weak spots which can be targeted for critical damage.

The Deathbringer is equipped with a machine gun turret on the left and right side of its body which can be a nuisance. Players should fire a few Tearblast arrows on these to neutralize them early on in the fight. Continuing to hit the robot further with Fire arrows will cause it to overheat and expose its cooling rods which can be targeted with hard hitting arrows like the precision ones.

Concentration skill can be quite useful in this fight as players can slow down time and hit the weakspots easily while dodging the rockets which the Deathbringer fires. Since the robot is pretty slow, it is easy to just run around in it circle and keep it guessing where the players will attack from next.

Stay in one place for too long can be dangerous because of its ranged attacks since the robot moves pretty slow so it shouldn’t be able to catch up to the player, unless they stay in one place throughout the entire fight.

Instead of continuously using Fire arrows, players can also use Shock ones to deal a fair amount of damage and stun the Deathbringer for a while. This is super effective on the orange glowing canisters once the outer armor layers are removed. While the normal arrows in this situation work best, the added stun bonus of Shock arrows makes up for the lack of damage.
