This is everything you need to know about whether you should kill or save Regalla in Horizon Forbidden West.
Unlocking the Decision to Spare or Kill Regalla
To get to the point where you have to decide whether to spare or kill Regalla, you’ll have to unlock the main mission The Wings of the Ten. This will lead to a battle with Regalla, where you will have to defeat her in combat.
There’s an advantage to either option, so let’s take a closer look.
If you do decide to spare Regalla’s life, you’ll get a companion later in the game when you have to fight the Zeniths. Not everyone will agree with your decision to spare her — Kotallo won’t like it — but others will support Aloy, and Regalla will be allowed to keep her life.
Although this is the more noble option and you gain some help later, there is a reward for choosing to kill Regalla. You’ll get the Regalla’s Wrath Sharpshot Bow. Kotallo will run her through with his spear for you, and it’s done.
Regalla’s Wrath Sharpshot Bow
The Sharpshot Bow you get for killing her is Very Rare.
Regalla’s prized possession. This lethal bow inflicts extra damage to targets at long-range (30m or more). It can be upgraded to improve its rate of fire.
The Regalla’s Wrath Sharpshot Bow is best used when fighting larger machines that are heavily armored, as the Strikethrough Precision Arrows are good penetrating through the defenses. Unlike the Hunter/Warrior Bows you’ll want to be using this Sharpshoot Bow at a distance to deal more damage.
You can use either Advanced Precision Arrows or Strikethrough Precision Arrows with this bow.

Is There Another Way to Get Regalla’s Bow?
Some people might be wondering if there’s another way to get this bow if you nobly choose not to kill Regalla. Unfortunately, there isn’t. If you choose to spare her, she will join you on the final mission and keep her bow to herself for the whole game.
If you’re looking to collect every possible weapon, you will have to kill her.
The Third Choice
There is a third dialogue option when deciding whether to spare or kill Regalla, which is, “This isn’t easy.” It’s true that it’s a hard decision for Aloy, but choosing it only buys her a few more seconds to make her decision and doesn’t actually affect anything in the game. Ultimately, you’ll still have to decide what’s worth more to you: an extra companion to fight Zeniths or a Very Rare Sharpshot Bow.
