In Horizon Forbidden West, Tiderippers are threatening opponents who can attack the player both underwater and on land. Because of this, they are a real threat and one of the hardest enemies to destroy in the game. An easy way to put Tideripper on a level playing field with Aloy is to remove some of its attacks or Purgewater effects. This can be done by targeting and taking out a few key body parts.

The Water filter bag will remove the Purgewater effect from some machine attacks and Purgewater Cannon, Tailand Tidal plate will all prevent certain attacks from happening when they are removed. This will allow the player more chance to dodge some of the slower attacks that will be left in its arsenal and avoid any additional damage effects from the machine’s Purgewater.
