In many ways, the Ravager closely resembles the Sawtooth, and it may, in fact, be an "upgraded" version of it. However, while the Sawtooth closely resembles a big cat, the Ravager more resembles a wolverine or large lion.
The Ravager walks on four legs with clawed feet, has a head with a toothy snout, and overlapping armor plates across its head, shoulders, back, and front legs. The armor plating is white and blue with a sort of camouflage pattern. It has two antennae at the back end.
One quickly notices the large cannon on the Ravager's back, primed to cut down targets. However, the cannon is detachable. It also has two canisters on its back and one on its belly that serve as weak spots.
After HEPHAESTUS went rogue and became self-aware, the Derangement took place and all GAIA machines became more aggressive, putting the humans in more danger than they were before. As the humans hunted the machines for parts and resources, HEPHAESTUS became progressively angrier and decided to create more combat-based machines, the Ravager included. The Ravager does fight like a Sawtooth in many ways but has the additional Pulse Cannon to fight at a range. The Ravager was created to fight and hunt humans on site which made it a quite dangerous machine to hunt.
While a Sawtooth charges targets like a big cat, the Ravager fights like a timber wolf, dodging around its prey and making slashing attacks with its front claws and teeth. The Ravager is both agile and fast, easily able to keep up with the target and avoid projectiles.
The Ravager's main weapon is the Ravager Cannon, an automatic energy weapon that fires a rapid burst of powerful blue projectiles similar to a Thunderjaw's mouth cannon. This gun can be shot off the Ravager's back and can be used against the beast or other targets. The Ravager can use this weapon both while stationary and on the move.
When Aloy is captured by the Eclipse and sentenced to die in the Sun Ring, Sylens comes to the rescue with not just two overridden Striders as getaway mounts but three overridden Ravagers, which quickly set upon two Corruptors, ripping even these seasoned war machines to pieces with ease. This is a frightening display of their potential power.
