"If that machine charges, it will flatten whatever stands in its way."
Aloy, upon sighting a Trampler
Trampler is a machine in Horizon Zero Dawn.


Tramplers are large machines resembling a bull. Their body is heavily built with powerful shoulders, four sturdy legs, horns and a large head. Under the belly is a large fuel canister, and on their back are two antennae.


Tramplers were created by GAIA as part of the terraforming process after the Faro Plague wiped out all the biomass on Earth in the 21st century. They seem to be equipped for mining, with both excavation horns and explosive fire. For a long time, Tramplers were peaceful machines that shied away from humans if one was spotted.

However, a decade before the game's events, the Derangement took place and the Tramplers, along with all the other machines, began to become more aggressive. They would menace humans that attacked them instead of running away or keeping their distance. By the time Aloy came of age and learned to hunt, Tramplers would often attack humans on sight, especially if warned first by nearby Watchers.


As the name implies, Tramplers can charge and attack with their horns, knocking targets to the ground and trampling them if they are not careful. They can also release gas in an area around them, which they will shortly ignite. At range, they can launch a fiery shockwave.
