Cannot be Overridden. The Deathbringer, as its name suggests, is a harbinger of war and is outfitted to take down armies with ease. As with the Corruptor, you will only find Deathbringers as part of quests and not when free-roaming the map. The first time you fight one, it will be weakened, but you get a taste of its firepower. Its main body is weak to both fire and shock, but you will want to use fire here, as it can overheat like the Corruptor, revealing more weak points (cooling rods).

Target the guns on the sides and the Swarm Launcher on top, preferably with precision arrows for the most damage. If you happen to see some spots appear on its legs (these are Stabilizers), shoot them and if one is destroyed, the Deathbringer will fall over, giving you a few moments to freely target other spots. It tends to expose the Stabilizers when it plants itself into ground to use its Swarm Launcher. The gun in the middle of its body is the infamous Deathbringer Gun you’ve probably used numerous times throughout the game, should you be able to knock it off and grab it.
