How To Defeat The Watchers In Horizon Zero Dawn:

The Watchers are more passive than other enemies in Horizon Zero Dawn. They simply scout the enviroment around them and look for threats. Upon locating a threat, they will call upon other allies in the area.

The best way to deal with Watchers is by taking them down silently. If you are spotted, then you must quickly take them down. Watchers lack offensive capabilities, but they do have some weapons in their arsenal.

Watchers charge at you and tackle you down. It is best to keep your distance, and use ranged weapons. The Watchers also have a laser attack that can deal some damage. Watchers have a weakness, and that is their eye. Attack the weakness to eliminate the enemy quickly.

You might come across a different type of Watchers. The normal type have a blue eye, while a more powerful and aggressive version of the enemy have a red eye. The Red eyed Watchers are tougher and deal more damage. Aside from that, they are the same as the normal Watchers.
