Horizon Zero Dawn: How To Defeat A Shell-Walker

In Horizon Zero Dawn, players will have to gather resources in order to survive. To get resources, you will have to take down enemy robots and loot them.

One of the robots you will encounter in the game is called the Shell-Walker. Shell-Walkers are crab like robots that traverse the land at a pretty sluggish pace. The six-legged robot is not very difficult to take down due to its low mobility. However, taking it down won’t be a walk in the park either.

How To Take Down A Shell-Walker:

The Shell-Walkers might not be the most agile enemy in Horizon Zero Dawn, but they are quite durable and can dish out a lot of damage. Shell-Walkers have a shield, which they activate before charging at you.

Alongside the charge attack, the Shell-Walkers are also equipped with a weapon called the Lightning Gun. This weapon can deal a lot of damage so its best to evade it.

If your only goal is to obtain the Shell-Walker’s cargo, then you can do that without having to take it down. Simply destroy the cargo holders, and the container on their back will fall to the ground. The Shell-walkers will try to pick up the container, so make sure you prevent them from retrieving it.

To disable the Shell-Walker’s Lightning Gun and Shield, players can destroy the power generator on its belly. This will limit the walker’s offensive capabilities. From there, players can chip away at the Shell-Walker. Due to its slow mobility, players can easily attack the Shell-Walkers from behind. This will also reduce the chance of players getting attacked.
