"That thing looks like a Sawtooth, but heavily armed. Great."
Aloy, upon sighting a RavagerThe Ravager is a machine in Horizon Zero Dawn. A fearsome combat machine, it is agile, tough, and equipped for battle.
In many ways, the Ravager closely resembles the Sawtooth, and it may in fact be an "upgraded" version of the Sawtooth. However, while the Sawtooth closely resembles a great cat, the Ravager more resembles a wolverine or large wolf.
Tthe Ravager walks on four legs with claws, 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, it also has two canisters on its back and one on its belly to serve as weaknesses.
While a Sawtooth charges targets like a great cat, the Ravager fights like a Timber Wolf, dodging around its prey and making dash 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. 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, who quickly fall upon two Corrupters, ripping even these seasoned war machines to peices with ease. This is a frightening display of their potential power.
