Lancehorn is a hostile Enemy in Horizon Zero Dawn that the players can confront to obtain Experience and Loot.  It can only be found in the normal or base variation. It isn't available in corrupted or daemonic form.

Lancehorn Description

  • The Lancehorn bears a resemblance to a very large antelope or gazelle, possessing a pair of parallel horns, four slender legs, and a long neck. The horns are corkscrewed in appearance and rotate longitudinally like drill bits, to channel soil up into the machine for processing and mining of minerals. There is a single optical sensor at the end of the snout. Twin Chillwater canisters are positioned atop the lower back; this likely helps cool the drill bits on the machine's head. Twin containers are positioned above these, likely to store processed materials.


Lancehorn Combat Information

  • Behavior InfoLancehorns are invariably found in herds. With heads down they work, busily cutting grass, stopping only to quietly change to another spot. For protection against hunters, they are usually accompanied by recon machines such as Watchers or Longlegs, frequently in tandem with combat machines such as Sawtooths or RavagersLancehorns are skittish; if a perceived threat is identified, the herd will undoubtedly flee. However, if the threat is very close, the closest Lancehorns will attack rather than flee.
