All machine vulnerabilities in Horizon Forbidden West

In the world of Horizon Forbidden West there are a total of 43 different machines that Aloy must fall onto. Each has their own unique vulnerabilities that make them easier to defeat. Depending on the specific variant of each type, there may be chain reaction points that players can use.
