Horizon Zero Dawn is an action role-playing game played from a third-person perspective. Players take control of Aloy, a hunter and archer, as she ventures through a post-apocalyptic land ruled by robotic creatures known simply as "machines". Aloy can kill enemies in a variety of ways, such as by setting traps like tripwires using the Tripcaster, shooting them with arrows, using explosives, and using a spear. Machine components, including electricity and the metal they are composed of, are vital to Aloy's survival, and she can loot their corpses to find useful resources for crafting.Ammo, resource satchels, pouches, quivers; resistance, antidotes, health potions, and traps are all amenable to crafting. Weapons have modification slots for dealing more damage. A small head piece that Aloy wears called a Focus allows her to scan machines to determine their susceptibilities, identify their location, the particular level they possess, and the nature of loot they will drop. One machine, the Stalker, can enable cloaking technology as a means of averting the gaze of Aloy's Focus scan.
