Devil's Thirst Bandit Camp is one of six bandit camps in Horizon Zero Dawn, located in the Sacred Lands.


Devil's Thirst Camp is the first bandit camp that Aloy comes across in her travels. It is located at the ruins of the Explorer Museum in Devil's Thirst, southeast of Mother's Crown. Serving as a tutorial for how to clear out bandit camps, it is also the first site where Nil invites Aloy to raid the camp together after the disappearance of his partner.

After clearing the camp, it becomes the new home of a band of Nora outcasts and Braves, including Jom.

  • Devil's Thirst Bandit Camp is a location for one of the Grazer-shaped training dummies that must be destroyed to obtain the "Downed 23 Grazer dummies" trophy.
  • The location shown in the Explorer Museum vantage point matches the real world location of Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum.[1]
