Tallneck is a machine in Horizon Zero Dawn that the players can override to reveal a portion of the map. Doing so grants Aloy experience points.  

Tallneck Description

  • The Tallneck resembles a giraffe in both silhouette and gait. They have no visible optical sensors, and their heads are broad discs, with a data node on the top center that can be used as an access point for overriding. Their chassis is covered by heavy armor plating.
    • Overriding a Tallneck will reveal that portion of the map, along with settlements, campfires, and machine sites.
      Tallnecks have unmatched durability: they are impervious to any damage from Aloy.

Tallneck Notes & Tips
