A Sky Clan soldier wants to hunt the killer machines that have been attacking Tenakth squads in the forest.


1. Meet Ikkotah at the Edge of the Forest
2. Kill The Machines

Meet Ikkotah at the Edge of the Forest

Head to Cliff Watch and speak with Ikkotah, then you’ll need to meet him in the nearby forest, so travel over to the Campfire northwest of The Stand of the Sentinels Tallneck to find him. Speak with him, then follow him until you reach an area filled with the following Machines, Redeye Watcher, Shell-Walker, Clawstrider and a Scorcher.

Kill The Machines

You’ll now need to use all of the skills you’ve learnt on your journey to help Ikkotah defeat these Machines, so hold R3 DualSense-Stick-R to activate your focus then scan them to learn their weaknesses. Shell-Walkers are weak to Acid Ammo and are most exposed from theri Lighting Gun. Clawstriders are weak to Shock Ammo and are most exposed from theri Razor Tail or Resource Container.

Redeye Watchers are also weak to Shock Ammo and only have one exposed point weak point which is the Eye. Finally, Scorchers are weak to Frost or Shock Ammo and are most exposed from their Mine Launcher. After all the Machines have been dealt with, speak with Ikkotah once more to bring this Errand to a close
