Horizon Forbidden West follows right after Zero Dawn, and it features several old machines that Aloy came across in the previous game. The Lancehorn is an Acquisition class machine in Horizon Forbidden West, and players will need to know how to defeat them to farm resources.
In Horizon Forbidden West, every machine has specific weak points and is often vulnerable to special elemental damage. Lancehorns have strong horns and an agile body, but there are a few weak points: their Drill Horns, Resource Canisters, and Chillwater Canisters. It is also weak against Fire-damage attacks but resists Frost-damage attacks.
Ideally, it's best to tear off components like the Resource Canisters and Chillwater Canisters by striking them with Tear-damage arrows. Players can also shoot Fire arrows at these machines to bring them down. The following components are available after defeating Lancehorns:
- Metal Shards
- Metal Bone
- Machine Muscle
- Braided Wire
- Small Machine Core
- Sturdy Hardplate
- Lancehorn Drill Horn
- Lancehorn Circulator
- Lancehorn Primary Nerve
Players cannot harvest Chillwater from Lancehorns without detaching its components first. Using Silent Strike on Lancehorns destroys these detachable components and removes them from the loot. To override Lancehorns, players will need to visit Cauldron IOTA located far north of Scalding Spear around the Salt Bite region.
