The Bristleback is a machine in Horizon Forbidden West.[1]


The Bristleback resembles a large warthog. It appears to have Blaze lines running under its belly, connecting to canisters on its rear.


Bristlebacks will become highly aggressive when threatened, utilizing their tusks as weapons [1].


  • This is the fourth Forbidden West machine to be named.
    • However, this is the first to be given a classification.
