The Broadhead is a machine in Horizon: Zero Dawn.


Physically, Broadheads are reminiscent of cattle, especially the Longhorn breed, displaying a pair of long, straight and horizontal horns likely used as tools and defense.


Broadheads have no ranged attacks, but are extremely fast. One must take caution when overriding or taking down a Broadhead.

A Broadhead's main method of attack is by charging forward and swiping with its large horns. These horns will deal 180-200 damage a swipe, so it is best to roll out of the way.

Seeing as a Broadhead has no ranged attacks, picking off the Blaze canisters and horns from afar is the best strategy for killing one. When overriding a Broadhead, it is a good idea to get rid of the horns beforehand, as it will charge if you get to close.
