RAVAGER (HORIZON ZERO DAWN)
Horizon Zero Dawn (2017)
The Metal Devil
The Ravager is a machine in Horizon Zero Dawn. A fearsome combat machine, it is agile, tough, and equipped for battle.
In many ways, the Ravager closely resembles the Sawtooth, and it may, in fact, be an “upgraded” version of it. However, while the Sawtooth closely resembles a big cat, the Ravager more resembles a wolverine or large wolf.
The Ravager walks on four legs with clawed feet, has a head with a toothy snout, and overlapping armor plates across its head, shoulders, back, and front legs. The armor plating is white and blue with a sort of camouflage pattern. It has two antennae at the back end.
One quickly notices the large cannon on the Ravager’s back, primed to cut down targets. However, it also has two canisters on its back and one on its belly that serve as weak spots.

While a Sawtooth charges targets like a big cat, the Ravager fights like a timber wolf, dodging around its prey and making slashing attacks with its front claws and teeth. The Ravager is both agile and fast, easily able to keep up with the target and avoid projectiles.
The Ravager’s main weapon is the Ravager Cannon, an automatic energy weapon that fires a rapid burst of powerful blue projectiles similar to a Thunderjaw’s mouth cannon. This gun can be shot off the Ravager’s back and can be used against the beast or other targets. The Ravager can use this weapon both while stationary and on the move.
When Aloy is captured by the Eclipse and sentenced to die in the Sun Ring, Sylens comes to the rescue with not just two overridden Striders as getaway mounts but three overridden Ravagers, which quickly set upon two Corrupters, ripping even these seasoned war machines to pieces with ease. This is a frightening display of their potential power.
