How To Defeat Corruptors in Horizon Zero Dawn:

Defeating a Corruptor is no walk in the park, as it attacks constantly. The Corruptor shoots out grenades from its back that do AoE (Area of Effect) damage. The explosions aren’t very big but can do some damage if you do not dodge it. The Corruptor also has a tail that it uses to pick up rocks and throws them at you.

Something to keep in mind when going up against any Corrupted enemies is that they are weak to fire damage. Using fire weapons will do a lot more damage than regular weapons so keep that in mind. The Corruptor also has a pounce attack that you can use to your advantage. When you see the monster getting ready to jump at you, place down a trap and evade the attack. The Corruptor will land on the trap, doing significant damage to itself.

Like every animal in Horizon Zero Dawn, the Corruptor has a weak spot.The Corruptor’s weak spot is the Heat Core located between its eyes. Attacking the Heat Core allows you to deal a lot more damage. Pair that up with Fire weapons, and you will take down the Corruptors in no time at all. Taking down Corrupted enemies requires a lot of patience. Take your time, evade their attacks, and attack when you get the chance.
