How to defeat Redeye Watcher in Horizon Forbidden West?

Small Recon machines!

Aloy will face a range of machines in Horizon Forbidden West, and players will need to know how to defeat them to harvest materials and resources. The Redeye Watcher is one of the Recon class machines Aloy will meet early on in Forbidden West. These small machines alert their allies after spotting Aloy but are easy enough to defeat when isolated.

In Horizon Forbidden West, every machine has specific weak points and is often vulnerable to special elemental damage. A Redeye Watcher is a small Recon machine with one essential weak point, its red eye. Players can potentially eliminate this machine with a single shot by striking its red eye with high-damage arrows.

Redeye Watchers are also weak against Shock-damage attacks but resist Fire and Plasma-damage attacks. The following components are available after defeating a Redeye Watcher:

  • Metal Shards
  • Machine Muscle
  • Metal Bone
  • Braided Wire
  • Small Machine Core
  • Sturdy Hardplate
  • Redeye Watcher Primary Nerve
  • Redeye Watcher Circulator

To override Redeye Watchers, players will need to visit Cauldron CHI, which is located on the southwestern edge of the map near Sentinel Forest.

Completed three academic degrees with five stars, like they were side quests in the final Boss mission. I could write a book on the FPS genre featuring CS:GO, Fortnite, Warzone, Apex, VALORANT, COD and PUBG - the greatest chapter would feature the futility and impact of the S&D format.
