Horizon Zero Dawn is, with a few caveats, an exemplary introduction to a new original concept. One that forgoes the irritation of multiplayer, invasive glitches and abstains from the “Buy me, buy me!” DLC attitude, at least for now. Salvaging dignity from the erstwhile mess of failed IP’s that have sadly blemished this generations auspicious promise (thanks “The Order 1886”). Surviving in this feral land requires, skill, resiliency, speed, a forest worth of bows and a big pointy stick! It’s tough, especially considering the carnivorous nutritional requirements of these prehistoric machines, that have a specific appetite for ginger ninja rump. So it’s nice to have a reprieve from having your spine used as a Dinosaurs toothpick, by sheltering undergrowth. The beautifully verdant terrain is complimented with conveniently located grass, that provides strategically affable positioning and concealment from pursuing guards or other hazardous creatures. Allowing for an effective means of disposing of larger groups of enemies through stealth. However the earnest breadth of this shrubbery appears to be unnecessary when confronting human adversaries.
In the video below I will demonstrate how to successfully avoid enemy detection, even in the most hostile and well fortified settlements, against foes with all the aptitude of a blind storm-trooper, by concealing myself behind a few flaying strands of grass that would expose even an ants most subtle movements.
