As soon as you enter the boss fight, you will see lots of cables in that area. You will be required to shoot all the cables in that area to get to the boss.

  • These cables will be protecting the Power Distributors, who are also the main energy source of Horizon Forbidden West Londra and its powerful attacks.

  • However, during this process, Londra continuously tries to attack you in order to stop you from destroying the power distributors.

Most of his attacks will include highly powerful energy waves and electricity charges that can cause serious damage.


He will also use a series of Electric Shockwaves to stop you from destroying the power distributors. Every so often, he will use attacks like Electric Blasts and use the floor panels to heat up and cause you damage.

While you are shooting down the power cables, make sure to keep a distance, as you will also get damaged when they explode.

  • After shooting down enough Power Cables, the power distributors will be revealed as they come out of the ground.
  • This will allow you to attack the power distributors on the floor.
  • Keep in mind that any ranged attacks you deal with on these power distributors will have no effect in destroying them.
  • Therefore you can only use melee weapons to attack them and break them down. 
  • After you have defeated all the power distributors, you will be able to see a Main Core. This main core is a very crucial part of the boss fight, and you will be required to destroy it as well.

However, this is also the part where Horizon Forbidden West Londra will get much more powerful in his attacks and will try to keep you away from the main core as much as possible.

Final Phase

There will also be a lot of cables emerging from the main core that you need to shoot down in order to destroy it.

However, unlike before, there will be a certain type of force field around the cables and the main core that will protect them from damage and make it way harder for you to destroy them. 

  • Furthermore, Londra will attack you with attacks like electric blasts and highly powerful Electric Shock waves that can eat up quite a lot of your HP.
  • The best tip here is to avoid them as much as possible and keep shooting down the cables until the Force Field gets destroyed.
  • When this happens, the cables will become vulnerable to your attacks, and you will be able to shoot them down to destroy them completely.
  • After successfully destroying the cables, you will have to go to the main core and destroy it using a melee weapon. This will conclude the Walter Londra boss fight and allow you to proceed further. 

Tips And Tricks For The Boss Fight 

Below are some tips and tricks that you will be able to utilize in order to counter Walter Londra easily. 

Using The Specter Gauntlet

Players will be able to make use of the Specter Gauntlet against Londra to defeat him easily. After you enter the inner chamber, you will see Londra connected to the main core of Horus.

Therefore he will be very vulnerable and prone to attacks as compared to Horus due to the core being exposed. After using your Specter Gauntlet, or any other powerful long-ranged weapons, you will be able to defeat the boss quickly after targeting the core. 

Avoiding Thunder Waves 

The main form of attack that Londra will use is Thunder or Electric shock waves that can eat a lot of HP if not countered properly.

He will send these powerful electric shockwaves after every few seconds, and if you get caught in them, you won’t be able to destroy the cables.

Whenever these Electric Shock Waves get near you, make sure to jump and dodge them as much as possible. Try to stay out of their range as you shoot down the cables; otherwise, you won’t be able to defeat Londra. 

Destroying Connectors 

Connectors or Power cables help Londra get energy from the machine and connect him to the main energy core.

Players will be required to constantly target them in order to destroy the connection between Londra and the main energy core in Horizon Forbidden West. 

  • During this time period, Londra will keep talking to distract you from the main core while he constantly shoots his electric waves at you.
    Therefore, it is important to ignore him and focus on destroying the power distributors and connectors while dodging his incoming attacks.
  • The power cables or connectors located at both sides of the main energy core should be destroyed in order to block the energy going to Londra for his attacks. 

Damaging The Power Distributors 

After you have successfully destroyed all the power cables, you need to go for the Power Distributors. During this time, Londra will become more powerful and will use his attacks more often.

The best way to destroy these power distributors is complete each side first before moving on to another side. The power distributed is located both on the left and right sides of the core. While you are defeating the distributors, make sure to dodge the incoming electric waves; otherwise, you can get caught in them and get damaged. 

Hoarding Healing Items 

Every once in a while, there is a huge possibility that you will get hit by one of Londra’s attacks. Since his attacks can eat up quite a lot of your HP, it is important to keep healing items with you.

Health-restoring consumables and medicines will help you bring down the boss easily whenever you get hit by one of his attacks. Make sure to keep items and Health Restoring Consumables like the Large Health Portion in Horizon Forbidden West to use whenever you can get in Horizon Forbidden West. 

You can use the health consumables whenever you run low on health during the boss battle. 

Destroy The Core 

The main power core connected to Londra is the most important target that the player will want to destroy in order to defeat the boss.

Whenever Londra attacks Aloy, the shield from the main core will drop. This will allow the players to hit the core and damage it. Keep in mind that this time window where you can shoot the core is very small. Therefore you will have to make sure not to miss out on this opportunity.
