Horizon: Zero Dawn

The Terror of the Sun

Jarrod Garripoli
Nathan Garvin

This quest is rather short and begins with you in a rather precarious situation, as Helis pits you against a Corrupted Behemoth without any armor or weapons. What is a woman like Aloy to do? Your goal is to pretty much coerce the Behemoth into charging at you and more specifically, the pillars that are holding up the central cell. Unfortunately, there is no certain way to get the Behemoth to charge, as it could do its other ranged attacks, like spitting tiny rocks at you or launching a large rock.

Lure the Behemoth into charging the pillars (left). This will knock down the platform, letting you regain your equipment (right).

Pick two pillars and concentrate solely on those two, as the Behemoth needs to hit each one twice in order for them to be destroyed. One of the more easier ways to do this is to stand behind the pillars, breaking line of sight, which should trigger the Behemoth’s charge. Once you do this and regain your weapons, it’s time to bring the Behemoth down. The easiest way to do this is to coax an attack from the Behemoth, switch to Freeze Arrows and target one of the canisters on its back. This should explode, causing the Behemoth to freeze. Ready a triple shot with precision arrows, hitting one of the Force Loaders by its head to deal major damage. Keep attacking to bring it down, then watch the scenes that follow.

Objective Reward
For escaping from Helis 11,000 XP / +1 Skill Points
