The Redeye Watcher is a small, reconnaissance-focused machine in Horizon Zero Dawn. Redeye Watchers are upgraded versions of normal Watchers. Redeyes are more aggressive attackers and feature more weapon systems and health than their normal counterparts.
They are often spotted in large groups and tend to guard larger machines.
Redeye Watchers are slightly larger than the normal variant, and sport reinforced armor plating on the head. Their tails are longer and thinner than normal Watchers, and angle upwards. Both Watcher types sport the same type of inner components, with a small change of two more tiny beady eyes beside the main eye.
While Redeye Watchers are mostly recon units, they are more ferocious in combat and have more weapons and attacks at their disposal. Outside of their melee attacks, their eyes are capable of launching laser blasts from a distance.
