  • +2 Medicine Capacity
  • +1 Strong Medicine
  • +1 Potion Competence
  • +1 Low health regeneration

The Quen Commander outfit is the one worn by Aloy in all of the Burning Shores DLC pre-release marketing videos. It’s being touted as the new outfit for the warrior class, meaning it’s made for those who like to be up close and personal in combat. If you’ve geared your build towards weapons like Tripcasters and Warrior Bows, this is probably the outfit you want to go for. Its base stats that can be upgraded are as follows.

  • +2 Charged Duration
  • +1 resonator build
  • +1 resonator blast+
  • +1 resonator damage

The Quen Deadeye Outfit is for stealth specialists who like to kill a machine before it even knows you’re there. It gives you a small focus boost, but it’s mostly for stealth builds that don’t want to alert enemies. If you love sneaking around and taking out a pack of machines without a single one seeing you, this is the outfit you need. The base stats are as follows.

  • +2 Low Profile
  • +1 ranged stealth+
  • +1 Secret Tear+
  • +1 Concentration+

Quen Marine – Best outfit for Hunter Builds

The Quen Marine outfit is perfect for anyone who has gotten used to sneaking around and attacking enemies from afar. It’s called a warrior outfit, but in practice it works better for hunter builds. We used it for our playthrough of Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores DLC and it’s phenomenal. This is the outfit to go for if you love focusing on accurate shots. With the right combination of coils and upgrades, you can extend your focus time to what feels like 120 seconds. The base stats are as follows.

  • +2 Concentration+
  • +1 Deep Concentration
  • +1 concentration regeneration
  • +1 stamina regeneration
