- "It looks like that machine carries fluid in those sacs. Not sure I want to find out what kind."
- ―Aloy, upon sighting a Fire Bellowback
The Bellowback bears a very vague similarity to a theropod dinosaur (Spinosaurus or Baryonyx in particular), much like Thunderjaws and Watchers, lacking forelimbs. Its torso and head also have a slight resemblance to a pair of bellows used for blowing oxygen into fire.
Fire Bellowbacks were created by GAIA in order to provide controlled burns to tracts of land, if necessary. They were used to burn away dead or dying vegetation so that new vegetation could grow in its place, as well as renewing and enriching the soil. They were also used to transport large amounts of Blaze to cauldrons to make more machines.
Bellobacks were most likely used before the effects of The Derangement which made them more deadly and aggressive. The machine now not only transports Blaze but also serves as a tough opponent in battle. It can spit fire at targets at mid-long range, breathe fire on close targets, and create wildfires and rings of fire spontaneously.
The Fire Bellowback shoots out long-range arcing fireballs that can hit Aloy from afar. The fireballs deal significant damage and have a large splash radius. Therefore it is necessary for the player to know when to roll away from these fireballs.
The Bellowback can also charge forward and swipe its mouth at Aloy, spreading fire around the area. This deals a small amount of damage, but will set Aloy on fire.
