Fire Bellowback is a machine in Horizon: Zero Dawn. The hulking, dinosaur-like machine is equipped with large amounts of Blaze and can spit flames from a distance.


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.


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.


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.
