I've just started The Frozen Wilds DLC for Horizon Zero Dawn. I've encountered some Control Towers, and have the option of either overriding them or destroying them. Is there an advantage to either option?

    Not rude. Exactly as it should be. Comments are not required for downvotes, and not providing one isn't rude in any sense. – Frank Nov 15 '18 at 17:00
  • Well, it would certainly help me understand how to ask better questions. I've edited in any case. – Alan Nov 15 '18 at 17:05

    Sure, nothing wrong with editing. But since the downvotes are not primarily feedback for you, there's no requirement to provide said personal feedback. Gaining that perspective will help. – Frank Nov 15 '18 at 17:06

Both overriding and destroying a control tower will disable the machine and choosing either option will award you a trophy after disabling them all.

Whether you choose to override or destroy, the key difference to keep in mind is that overriding the control tower will send out a shock wave that will stun all other machines that was under it's control for a short period of time.

Choosing to override the control towers is particularly useful

during the errand The Claws Beneath. This errand has you face a Daemonic Rockbreaker, which you can override the nearby control towers to stun it.
