Horizon Forbidden West is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated releases of Q1 2022, and to pile to the hype Guerrilla Games has introduced the Slitherfang in a brand-new gameplay clip! The clip shows Aloy fighting off with a formidable mechanical snake, and if this does not get you hyped up for the game then nothing will. Check out the clip below.

Coming exclusively from Game Informer, the 30-second clip shows off Aloy utilizing her skills and weapons against the fearsome snake-like enemy called Slitherfang in Horizon Forbidden West.
The monstrosity also makes use of acid-based attacks which are sure to give problems to unprepared players. As noted in the Game Informer exclusive:
Of course, acid isn’t the only weapon at the Slitherfang’s disposal. The rattle on its tail fires bolts of lightning that produce a wide-reaching wave of electricity. We noticed the Slitherfang shakes its rattle shortly before firing, much like the warning sign of a real rattlesnake, which is a nice touch. The rattle is fragile, though, and skilled archers can detach the tail with a few well-placed arrows. Best of all, you can pick up and use the rattle as a weapon against the Slitherfang (although the machine does sport a resistance to shock damage).
