Deathbringer is a hostile Enemy machine in Horizon Zero Dawn that the players can confront to obtain Experience and Loot. 

Deathbringer Description

  • Deathbringers (Also known as FAS-FSP5 Khopesh), are ancient machines, as all the Chariot Classed Machines.
  • A Deathbringer is a large and very powerful mobile weapons platform, comparable in size to the largest contemporary combat machines.
  • Unlike Zero Dawn machines or even the other machines in the Chariot Line, Deathbringers have no resemblance to any fauna.
  • A Deathbringer’s means of ambulation consists of six stout legs, each with a vertical piston at the end. Each leg is equipped with a stabilizer. The legs are connected radially to a circular swivel that allows the head, which is laterally wider than the span of the legs, to turn 360 degrees.
  • The head carries several formidable weapons: a flamethrower, a grenade launcher, a gun turret, a heavy cannon turret, a swarm missile launcher and a repeater cannon turret. The head also houses heat vents, cooling rods, and the machine’s core.
  • Tough armor plating covers the entire chassis. Two optical sensors are located centrally at the front of the head, in a vertical location, on each side of the CPU’s housing.
