Banuk Sickness Eater is a type of outfit in Horizon Zero Dawn.


"Bound with cables and cloth steeped in ancient machine oils, this Banuk shaman's outfit protects from Corruption damage."
―Inventory description
The Banuk Sickness Eater outfit is produced by the Banuk tribe, and boosts the wearer's resistance to Corruption damage.

This outfit can be obtained in Light, Medium, or Heavy varieties, with an increasing number of mod slots and potency of effects. In New Game+, the Heavy variant of this outfit is no longer sold by merchants, and is replaced by an Adept version with an additional modification slot.


When equipped, this outfit provides increased resistance to Corruption damage. Although this outfit can provide a long-term alternative to Antidotes, it is still inferior to Antidote protection even when optimized with modifications.

It is best used when battling Corrupted machines or clearing the Corrupted Zones across the map.
