Horizon Forbidden West’s new update makes stealth a lot harder

The latest update to Horizon Forbidden West makes it even harder to sneak out of the machine.

Yesterday Guerrilla Games released patch 1.12 for Horizon Forbidden West. Among the update’s several fixes and improvements, many fans won’t appreciate the changes in machine behavior, especially if you prefer a quieter approach to eliminating the game’s mechanical monsters.

As seen by Reddit user Hot_Potato_001, the patch notes state that “Large Medium and Large Machines will expand in combat when they lose 35% of their health at once.” That’s certainly bad news for stealth fans, as it’s not a big deal for the game’s biggest hitters. Overwhelming blows from threatening opponents will instantly destroy your cover.

It’s worth mentioning that enemies must lose 35% or more of their health in one go, so you can still quietly kill these powerful enemies without them noticing. Still, if you keep quiet and get a little too lethal, it’s an odd punishment. Players shared their frustrations with the patch on the Horizon subreddit. somethingaboutme somethingaboutme said “I hope they don’t make us invisible.” Clear_Butterscotch78 also lamented the new invisibility restrictions, saying: “It makes me sad.”

Invisibility isn’t the only thing that’s changed since patch 1.12 was released. Guerrilla has implemented a solution to prevent Aloy from getting trapped in the bathroom near the bed at the base. The update also prevents her from bouncing violently while looting, meaning Aloy will no longer have any “festive loot parties”.

Horizon Forbidden West’s new update makes stealth a lot harder

Horizon Forbidden West’s latest update makes it much harder to take machines down stealthily.
Yesterday, Guerrilla Games released patch 1.12 for Horizon Forbidden West. Among the update’s various fixes and improvements is a change to machine behaviour that many fans aren’t going to like, particularly if you enjoy the more silent approach to taking down the game’s mechanical monstrosities.  
As spotted by Reddit user Hot_Potato_001, the patch notes state that “the sturdier mid and large machines will escalate to combat when 35% of their health is lost in one shot.” This is undoubtedly bad news for stealth fans, as landing too powerful a strike on the game’s more menacing adversaries will now see your cover instantly blown.

It’s worth noting that 35% or more of the enemy’s health has to be lost in one shot, so you can still quietly whittle down these more formidable foes without them becoming aware of you. Still, it is oddly punishing if you happen to be silent and a bit too deadly. Players have shared their frustration over the revision on the Horizon subreddit. User somethingaboutme comments, “I wish they’d let us stealth in peace.” Clear_Butterscotch78 also laments the new limitations to stealth, saying, “this makes me sad.”
Stealth isn’t the only thing that’s changed following the release of patch 1.12. Guerrilla has implemented a fix to stop Aloy from getting stuck in the bathroom near the sleeping bunk area at the base. The update also prevents her from severely bouncing while looting items, meaning no more ‘celebratory loot raves’ for Aloy.
There’s a lot to do in Aloy’s latest adventure, and quests, whether big or small, are worth completing. Find out how Horizon Forbidden West nails its open world by making every side quest matter.
