Some quick tips.
Alika Cripe (1 month ago)
Set your fucking traps it helps a lot. NEVER GET IN A MELEE FIGHT WITH A SAWTOOTH ALWAYS RANGE THE FUCKERS. knock out thunderjaws disk launcher then aim for the turrets. Rest is swiss cheese. Focus fire on Stormbird with the shadow ropecaster or carja ropecaster and 10min grind your way with both fire attacks and ice attacks.

Jumping is going to be a good friend in the game because of the limited climbing places and the roll dodge as well

That part of the game is so Stupid when she says "there must be a way 2 Overide them" And then the game doesn't give a Clue on how 2 do

Why would u want 2 fast travel to an area you've already been???

I love this game so much and I've already played it through a few times. Usually I find games that I play for a while and then I'll be bored of them but with HZD that's clearly not the case. And as for cauldrons, a good thing to know is that they send signals like the tallneck does once you're close enough. There's also a sidequest which leads you to cauldron Sigma, you get it in that village where you have to talk to a woman who supposedly knows the way to Meridian. Unless you were in Sigma before you're in the village.
Another one is when you die you go to a previous save which is a big no no for open world games

If you are new. Make sure to collect all of the power cells to unlock the legendary armor.

Story is great, combat is a grind, just turn difficulty down to easy and the game is much more enjoyable :) Having EVERY fight be a grind, whilst you are attempting to move from A to B to speak to a guy about a quest gets really boring.

i made the mistake of killing a creature while others were around and started getting chased. i had to run like hell and get away. i also recommend filling your medicinal pouch as soon as you use some of it. otherwise, you'll end up not having enough if your health is too low. and be prepared to wait and hide when creatures are searching for you. i had to wait at least 5 minutes when i was trying to retrieve the spear on a side quest cause i alerted 2 scrappers. the watchers are the easiest creatures in the game to kill in melee. don't waste arrows on them if you can.

How's the replay value? After I beat it with the DLC after getting complete edition is it still fun to play around in the world and things to do? Sometimes like in GTA I just like to explore and do whatever happens happens EDIT: I DIDNT beat it yet it's almost installed but after I do finish it is what I'm asking.
Kojima Red (2 months ago)
Thanks for the tips gameranx is my go to for anything video games keep it up guys! You guys remind me of someone I'd chill with and remind me of some friends. o7

basically fast travel is similar to tomb raider's fast travel
David Barton (2 months ago)
Fast travel is easy. Just farm for like 20 mins and you be set for the rest of the game lol. Game isn’t fun though, it plays like a sad copied version of the last of us but the enemies are all idiotic and easy except for the big ones that go underground. 😐 Really don’t see why this game is hyped, Oh yeah , graphics XD

Best game ever, spent 100 hours on it

The special armor in the ancient armory is a godsend when you do the DLC. Don't jump into that side story until you have it because it'll save your scrawny neck the entire time, no matter what level you are or the difficulty. The daemonic machines are a pain in the ass and the DLC Bunuk armor helps only a little bit. It provides a forcefield that takes the damage for you, but it needs to charge up every single time you take a hit. Once the charge has gone down from the damage, THEN you start taking damage and will need to heal yourself. The problem is that there are control towers in the dlc that can short out the armor's barrier, so time everything correctly when attacking the machines/towers, or hack the tower. When you head into the cauldrons, like he said about prepping for every battle, be ready to lay out a dozen traps when you get to the end of the "dungeon." Don't drop the forcefield around the machine until you've laid them out, and know what the weakness are so that you know what traps to use. On the whole, the explodey ones are generally universal. Don't kill Nil. He's a gift and useful at the end of the game. Just let the bloodthirsty idiot live. The Ridgewood stacks up faster than you'd think and takes up space in your pack. Merchants won't buy them, so you have to just drop them on the ground if you get too many. My current playthrough has about 3k of those things for arrows so I don't bother grabbing the stuff from bodies or whatever. Keep a healthy supply of wire, echo shells, and blaze. I've found chillwater to be mostly useless with my play style, but you do you. Again, fire and explodey things are your friend in most cases but that's not always the case. Abuse the poo out of the camera feature for screenshotting the game. The resolution available for the game is stunning and the ability to pose Aloy and change the time of day and all is a gift. Some machines have weapons you can shoot off (thunderjaw, for example) and really help defeat the machine you just got the weapon from faster and from a safer distance. Lasers, machine guns, explodey disks, you get the idea. Lastly: Sylens can screw himself on a prickly cactus.

I remember the special armor being "OP" early since the games release. Eventually it got nerfed big time. Still good, but not as great as it was before the patches.

In one of the first missions when you're inside the mountain with Teersa you NEED to find the hidden powercel! Check a video on youtube about because you need 5 of those to unlock the best armor in the game and if you don't pick up the first one right there you'll need to wait till one of the very last missions to get access to the mountain again!

Ps4 pro version with a 55 4k hdr oled tv and the platinum headset with the games audio preset is one of the best looking and sounding games on earth! I have a one x and like both consoles just the same but this game looks beter than the one x beast.

Maybe the most beautiful PS4 exclusive so far, but it has everything that every open world (RPG or not) have. It doesn't add anything new to the genre and after some hours it becomes easily a boring game as any other open world that throws in the map useless and repetitive things just to fulfill hours of gameplay when its main story isn't capable of. The story may seems interesting, but its grandiosity has, among all things, the purpose to make players forget some huge flaws. It's obviously one of those cases when, at some point of the production, the story is molded around the game and not the other way round. Aloy isn't as charismatic as she could be, she is linear, unidimensional, unexpressive. I've played around 80 hours, and completed the most of it I could just because I didn't want to have the feeling that I had wasted my money as I had with my time. Like I said, it's visually stunning, but it's story, mechanics and repetitive quests with no obvious reasons doesn't sustain itself.

They are brutal. But I must say the beasts in the DLC are much more difficult imo. Especially in the harder difficulties.

If i may add some tips too it. 1 read all the dialogues, there are some awesome background info in it that you need to understand the story. 2 collect data points, it seems dull, but at the same reason, a lot has happened before the world came to its end. 3 keep your medicine full, it your best friend in heavy fights when you have lots of health in stock. 4 keep in mind that traps and wiretraps will stay even before a cutscene, for example when you fight the demon that attacks from the door, you can trap the door before the cutscene as everything is still normal and you have all the time in the world too make your plans. Try put 36 traps and 20 wires before the door, that demon will not know what killed him, so funny... 5 override the machines at the cauldrons, all those bosses have running small machines before you release the shield from the bosses. Its way easier when those small machines fight at ur side fighting those bosses. 6 don't ever skip any location in a room, path or field. There are so many of these areas to be founded with valuable loot, like those energy cells. 7 don't put to much valuables on one statistic, they have a cap and once reached you don't get the value from it. so combine stealth with melee/range defense etc. 8 go directly too the frozenwilds for the Over powered weapons and outfits, at level 30 you can get there and with new game + its easy to gain extra modifications. Also it enoys silens lol 9 Use stealth in water, for me its an easy way too get out of trouble, jump in the deep water and go stealth, it can save your life. 10 Use the rope weapon too slash those angry birds, they are a pain to kill with arrows. with rope its a whole lot easier.

Note on Number 1 Start Tip: Locations given by the maps are not always 100% accurate. In some case they are found quite a bit further than the immediate area suggested by the grey/white circle area listed on the map

Blake Armentrout (6 months ago)
Nice vid but somthing worth mentioning about your fast travel comment, you can in fact unlock infinite fast travel early on by purcasing the gold travel pack from vendors once you enter the dessert region of the game. It allows free fast travel for as long as you have it in your inventory and it never runs out.

Just sayin’ forgot about stacking up on Ridgewood and Metal Shards (elements to make basic arrows) because boy you are absolutely screwed without them. I learned that the hard way.
John Evans (6 months ago)
First thing you need to know is that this game is WAY overrated, so get ready to be severely disappointed by bad dialogue, horrible draw distance, a very linear feeling open world, horrible side quests and a young adult story.

It just freezes. Is this normal for the PS4 pro? I have only played on the X-Box for a good while now but wanted to play this exclusive. Bought it JUST for Zero Dawn but I cannot get past the select language before it freezes.

I brought this game on the day of release and I played it for about 3 days before I grew bored of it but that was because I'd never played a game like it before. I want to get back into it now a year later
Ben Sostaric (8 months ago)
Another tip, although late, is to know what level of enemies u can face and stand a chance against, because u could get easily rekt against something u though would be easy.

"You need to spend a fast travel pack." Then I went to a merchant in meridian... sold all of mine, LOL!!!

Remember to collect the power cells if you want the best armor as you progress through the game. I remember I had to go back multiple locations to get those things when I could've taken a couple of steps to the right to grab 1.
Cheyenne9519 Smith (9 months ago)
Here's one more tip when you're battling the deathbringer at markers end where it can't move hide behind the wall, you can destroy it by jumping back and forth behind the wall, especially if you're playing on Ultra hard. Don't forget to kill the watcher and the Eclipse soldiers first for taking on the deathbringer.
