Tallnecks are gigantic machines in Horizon Forbidden West that allow players to access a lot of information. If Aloy climbs on top of the head and scales it, a shockwave will be sent out and her map will update with tons of on-map markers that can direct you to a side objective you want to go to without having to explore everything first. Here are all of the Tallneck locations in Horizon Forbidden West.
This is probably the first Tallneck you’ll encounter, and it’s orbiting a broken satellite. To get to the Tallneck you need to climb onto the satellite, get the power cell there, turn on the satellite and spin it around so you have a platform to hop onto the machine.
This Tallneck becomes deactivated after being knocked out by the current and having its power cores removed. You need to scale two nearby areas with bird machine nests to find the cores.
This Tallneck is taken care of by completing Cauldron: IOTA. When you arrive at the cauldron, you’ll go through the process of repairing and activating it.
The Luminous Wastes
This Tallneck is overridden as part of the Wings of the Ten story quest. Just fly towards it with your solar wing and drop onto his head.
The Stand of the Sentinels
This Tallneck circles an abandoned settlement in trees. On the ground are some stalkers with clamberjaws occupying the tree levels. If you haven’t already unlocked Sunwing mounts, you’ll need to slide into the village from the nearby mountain and climb to a point where you can jump on your head.
The still sands
This Tallneck was attacked by some Oseram salvage workers, who were using anchored ballistae to weigh it down. When you figure this out, use the ballistae to shoot the machine and slow it down so you can climb to the top. However, machines will be summoned looking for you if you shoot inside.
