Charger is a machine in Horizon: Zero Dawn.


The Charger, like a few other machines in the game, resembles a grazing, bovine-type creature, this one more resembling a bull, yak, or ram due to the shape and configuration of the horns.


The Charger uses an attack known as the Charge Attack, which, like many others, is an attack in which the machine charges at the attacker. Like many of its counterparts, such as the Grazer, this machine uses a backwards kick or leap to harm enemies from the rear.
