The Stalker is a stealthy machine in Horizon Zero Dawn. These lone hunters are equipped with camouflage technology as well as an assortment of weapons. By lying in wait, these machines ambush unsuspecting humans and are considered one of the most dangerous machines yet encountered.


The appearance of this machine is similar to a big cat, particularly a leopard. However, the official art book claims that the Stalker was inspired by the maned wolf.


The Stalker possesses the ability to turn invisible as a way of ambushing its prey. On its back is a dart gun. As it turns invisible, the Stalker places numerous mines on the ground, which will explode should anything get too close to them. As a means of close-quarters combat, it can use its retractable tail to strike opponents.

Stalkers can often be found attached to trees or cliffsides, waiting to drop down on prey.
