I saw a skill that said when holding heavy weapons you move faster. So I've been going to traders and looking for them.

Are they guns? If so I never knew they had guns in the game.

    I'm guessing the downvotes are because this question is easily researched via Googling obvious keywords in your title. "horizon zero dawn heavy weapons" pulls up a dozen or so pages that answer this question. Jan 15, 2019 at 21:19

There are some heavy weapons in the game that cause Aloy to move slower. They have a lot of limitations - you can't jump/crouch while holding them, they get dropped if you dodge, and their ammo can't be refilled once they're empty. However, they do a lot of damage.

Here is a list of the heavy weapons in the game according to the wiki:


They are simply weapons that Aloy can pick up and use, but are temporary/not part of your inventory.

They are:

  • Deathbringer Gun
  • Oseram Cannon
  • Ravager Cannon
  • Firespitter
  • Firestriker
  • Disc Launcher
  • Mine Launcher*

* - Frozen Wilds expansion
