Scrapper is a hostile Enemy in Horizon Zero Dawn that the players can confront to obtain Experience and Loot.  It can also be found in normal, corrupted and daemonic variations.

Scrapper Description

  • Scrappers are small hyena-like humped machines that gather and scavenge resources.
  • Even though Scrappers aren't primarily built for combat, they carry an energy weapon on its back and can also attack with their claws and mouth.


Scrapper Combat Information

  • Behavior Info:Occasionally a Scrapper will stop and use its radar scanner. If it detects a moving object that is at least the size of a human, the Scrapper immediately runs to the vicinity of the signature and investigates. 
  • If Aloy is hiding from a Scrapper, but within the area of a radar scan, she will be detected.
  • Weakness: None. Even though Scrappers have no elemental weaknesses, being a small machine makes them vulnerable to be insta-killed by Aloy if she stealthily uses her silent strike ability. 
  • Removing or destroying the Radar disables its area scanning ability, and striking the Power Cell with Shock Arrows triggers a large area-of-effect explosion that electrically stuns anything within range and disables all ranged energy attacks
  • Resistance: None

  • Laser Burst: Series of pulse blasts fired at enemy, dealing 40 damage each.
  • Laser Lead Up: Using the energy weapon on their back, Scrappers can fire a beam aimed at ground, then along ground longitudinally toward the enemy. Deals 105 damage and then 12 damage per second
  • Laser Sweep: Using the energy weapon on their back, Scrappers can fire a beam aimed at ground, then along ground transversely toward enemy. Deals 90 damage, and then 50 damage per second.
  • Claw Swipe: A melee attack that deals 85 damage.
  • Grinder Jaw Swipe: Scrapper attacks with its mouth assembly grinders, dealing 85 damage.



Scrapper Location

  • Scrappers are invariably found in packs of at least two, roaming areas in search of machine chassis to recycle.

Scrapper Notes & Tips

  • Scrappers are attracted to destroyed machines, as scavenging and gathering valuable resources is their primary function. If allowed to do so, Aloy, won't be able to get anything from a destroyed machine chassis.
