Cauldrons Walkthrough

Before you get any ideas, these are nothing to do with witches and spells. Cauldrons in Horizon Zero Dawn are ancient structures. Minor spoilers ahead*. The cauldrons are where the robots are created. There are 4 in total to find and each one will give you enhanced abilities to override machines. Typically each cauldron will also contain some interesting story that will reveal further information about the ancient people that are responsible for everything you see in the game.
