Boss battle description

He may not be a machine, but you should still use your Focus on Erik - Horizon Forbidden West: Erik - Zenith boss fight in the Singularity quest - Bosses - Horizon Forbidden West Guide

He may not be a machine, but you should still use your Focus on Erik. You'll learn his armor is weak against fire and frost. Use proper elemental ammo on him, if you can. Traps aren't very useful against Erik, as he's very agile and can easily attack Aloy while she's trying to set them up.

Equip Aloy with a shock-resistant outfit if you can, as this is the main element your opponent uses.

For most of the duel Erik will try to fight you in melee, constantly chasing you - Horizon Forbidden West: Erik - Zenith boss fight in the Singularity quest - Bosses - Horizon Forbidden West Guide

For most of the duel Erik will try to fight you in melee, constantly chasing you. This means you should sprint and dodge often to avoid his quick melee strikes. These include forward thrusts and spin attacks, all of which can easily hit Aloy.

Erik can also levitate to execute some very dangerous moves - Horizon Forbidden West: Erik - Zenith boss fight in the Singularity quest - Bosses - Horizon Forbidden West Guide

Erik can also levitate to execute some very dangerous moves. He'll generate shockwaves or shoot at Aloy from a distance. Depending on the attack he uses, either back away from him or hide behind cover.

Some of Erik's attacks work similarly to traps, which means they pose a threat even after he's done executing them - Horizon Forbidden West: Erik - Zenith boss fight in the Singularity quest - Bosses - Horizon Forbidden West Guide

Some of Erik's attacks work similarly to traps, which means they pose a threat even after he's done executing them. You should move away from trapped areas and continue your onslaught from elsewhere.

Throughout the duel rely on fire and frost - your main objective should be getting rid of Erik's helmet, so always aim for the upper part of his armor - Horizon Forbidden West: Erik - Zenith boss fight in the Singularity quest - Bosses - Horizon Forbidden West Guide

Throughout the duel rely on fire and frost - your main objective should be getting rid of Erik's helmet, so always aim for the upper part of his armor. After he loses his headgear keep shooting him in the head to quickly drain his health.
