When Aloy comes back to the ship of Kristia and Harriem player will come to know that the gyrocompass is broken and she has to go to the ancient shipwreck to collect batteries and sensors also. Because Kristia and Harriem need these resources for gyrocompass.

For that Aloy has to examine the ship’s antenna which will lead her under the water there in the sea bushes she can collect batteries. There are three batteries at different spots under the water.

Like Regalla’s Wrath, Skykiller is another legendary weapon in Horizon Forbidden West that proves its prowess while fighting against humans and machines. Especially against a large one due to its ability to use explosives in it. This weapon is superior among its kind. It is better than all other spike thrower weapons in the game. The ammo cost of this weapon is also high so it is better if it is used against heavy build enemies. Its Aerial enemy damage is higher than burning enemy damage.

Skykiller is spike throwing legendary weapon. The player needs to make an effort to get this. We have to complete a side quest named The Way Home after we complete the side quest we will get 10400 XP and two skills along with Skykiller. Skykiller applies fire on enemies when we attack them by using it. There is one negative aspect of this weapon that when we use it with explosives it destroys not only the enemy but every useful loot item that we might get by after taking down the machine and scavenging its parts.
