Horizon Zero Dawn: How to Get the Shield-Weaver Armor - Ancient Armory Quest ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Horizon Zero Dawn is an action role-playing game where you have to survive in a postapocalyptic world ruled by robots. Having said that, in order to fight them properly, you will need proper armor. That’s where the Shield-Weaver Armor kicks on.

However, unlike the other items which you can buy from a merchant, this one is hidden and it will require you to find several different Power Cells in order to unlock it.

Getting the Ancient Armor Quest

The first step towards your end goal is to get the starting quest for this epic item. In order to do that, you will need to find a Power Cell or got to the Bunker where the armor can be found.

If you have no idea where the Bunker is, try climbing the first Tellneck you see at the Devil’s Thirst. Once you do that, you should be able to find the Bunker if just roam around for a while. 

As soon as you find it go there and check out the armor behind a glass. However, in order to get it, you will have to solve the unpowered dials. In order to do that, you have to find the two Power Cells.

Power Cell Locations

So, how to find the first two Power Cells? You can do that if you have completed the game at least up to the completion of the quest called The Womb of the Mountain.

If you’ve done that, the next step is to start looking for those cells. The first one can be found somewhere near a set of Ruins which you can explore near the start of the game. That’s why you should just go back there and explore them until you actually locate the opening. Keep it in mind that it should be blocked by a wide variety of rocks and other stuff. In order to get it, you will need to find some sort of a tunnel that will lead you there.

Once you have the first two Power Cells you will have to go back to the Bunker. As soon as you go there, you will need to interact with the unit dials so that you can return them. After you do that, you have to solve a puzzle which is pretty hard. Despite that, the answers are usually written on the wall area to the right so use your Focus in order to check them.

As soon as you put the dials into place, the first door will open and it will reveal the big price. The armor itself is held in place by several clamps but you can’t just get it. Before that, you will have to find three more Power Cells and then solve yet another puzzle.

The Power Cells are needed to open the Clamps3

The first Cell

The first Power Cell can be found during a quest called “Maker’s End”. In order to find it, you must each the top of Faro’s Skyscraper and find Elizabeth . As soon as you do that, look for another road that goes higher up the skyscraper. Go to the top and you`ll see the priceless Power Cell there. In addition, there is some sort of a rope which you can use in order to go back faster, so it will even save you some time.

The second Cell

The second Power Cell can only be found during the quest Grave-Hoard. It is a little bit easier compared to the first one because once you go in the main foyer of the ruins you need to just look around until you find the Power Cell itself. After you do that, just go and get it.

The third Cell

Last, but certainly not least, can be located in the quest called “The Mountain That fell”. So, how do you get it?

First, you will need to go to a place called Gaia Prime. You will see a hologram and some chat between scientists but that’s not what you’re here for. Once it goes away, look around for a way to get in and you should find some sort of a zipline. Also, keep an eye for some sort of a path which leads down into a cave. As you probably guessed already, the Power Cell is located in the cave itself.

You got all three of them, now what?

After getting all the Power Cells in place, go back to the Bunker and light up their dials. As I mentioned earlier, you`ll have to go through a puzzle once again. Play it smart and use Aloy’s Focus again in order to do it easier.

Once you are done unlocking the climbs, go inside and “talk” with the armor in order to receive the Shield-Weaver Treasure Box. Open your inventory and the box and you are good to go. 

Just remember that you need to have open slots in your inventory in order to get it.
