When the previous quest (and the DLC-storyline) ends, Aloy is faced with one final errand. Five Fireclaws are roaming the Cut and it’s up to us to get rid of them. There are four locations – the one with the bigger circle above features two machines in the same spot.
Generally speaking, the Fireclaws are weak to freezing damage. So take these weapons/ammo out and save your fire-ammo, as it deals nearly no damage at all.
On some of the sites, there are other machines like Ravagers. Get out your Tearblast Arrows and shoot off their cannons – they are quite helpful and free ammo as well.
On the eastern-most location with the two Fireclaws, we will meet Aratak, who will join our fight. He won’t deal much damage but can be perfectly used as a decoy and to widen the total area of the battle. If you fight both at once, you will be thrown through the air quite often and will miss many shots. Deal with one of the machines, while Aratak occupies the second one, as can be seen below.
Once you have dealt with the last machine, you should be awarded the Killed 6 Fireclaws-trophy, as you have killed one in the previous quest.
Also, you can travel back to Song’s Edge and turn this quest in, if you speak to Naltuk there.
