The Ropecaster is a ranged weapon in Horizon Zero Dawn. It is a tool designed by the Nora tribe and used by hunters to deter and pin down targets.
The Ropecaster can be used to temporarily take enemies out of the fight so the player may focus on others, or immobilize the machine such that it is easier to target its weaknesses. It is most effective when used against larger machines, such as the Thunderjaw. Depending on the size of the target and the type of ammo used, it may take several shots before it is successfully pinned. The maximum immobilization duration of 90 seconds reduces for every instance the player attacks the target.
