Can You Get Back Into Mother’s Watch In Horizon Zero Dawn?

Find a way to get back into the Mother's Watch in Horizon Zero Dawn and unlock the Shield-Weaver Armor.

Horizon Zero Dawn is here with a bang. To surpass challenges and missions in the game, you need to equip Aloy with the best of weapons and armors. One such armor that can boost your defense significantly is the Ancient Shield-Weaver Armor. It requires five power cells to unlock the Shield-Weaver Armor. One of these power cells is found in the Mother’s Watch, which gets close once you exit it. What about the players who missed or didn’t know about the power cell? Well, there is a way to get back into Mother’s Watch in Horizon Zero Dawn and grab the power cell or any other missed items.

Horizon Zero Dawn: How to Re-Enter Mother’s Watch

Shield-Weaver Armor requires five power cells. While four of them can be found easily, the one present in Mother’s Watch is difficult to acquire. The reason being that some of the players are not aware of the Shield-Weaver Armor and some others just miss it. And once a player leaves the Mother’s Watch, the gates get shut down.

Well, it’s not that hard, the temple gates will reopen by the end of the Horizon: Zero Dawn and you can get the missed items. But it requires a lot of waiting, and who wants to wait. There is an alternative way to get back into Mother’s Watch and grab the power cell without waiting until the end.

All you need to do is to climb your way back through mountains around the temple and then simply walk back in. It is easier said than done, as you will have to jump at the sweet spot to get back into the temple. Also, there are obstacles in climbing the mountain that will make it challenging.

There are a few ways to avoid any obstacles and ensure that you get back into Mother’s Watch. Firstly, you will need a mount to climb. There are certain paths on the way back to the temple that blocks Aloy’s way when on foot but allows to pass when on a mount. The second thing is to have patience. As mentioned earlier you will have to find the right spot while making a jump to reach the temple. Hence, it might take a while.

Once you climb the mountain surrounding the temple and find all the spots, you can simply walk back into the Mother’s Watch. When you are in the temple, take the right door, go down the valley, and then take the left to find the power cell. Collect all the five power cells and unlock the Shield-Weaver Armor.

That’s one tricky but an alternative way to get back into Mother’s Watch if you don’t want to wait. This will help you unlock Shield-Weaver Armor, which will increase your defense. You should also try to upgrade your spear to increase your attack damage. This will help increase your character’s level. When you reach level 30, you can also head towards the Frozen Wilds DLC to experience another adventure of Aloy’s world.
