"Stone Yield used to be a pleasant place. But now that those bandits have gotten their paws on it..."
―Banuk Wanderer

Stone Yield Bandit Camp is an activity in Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds. It is the only bandit camp found in the Cut.


Stone Yield is a large, multi-level camp that has been overrun by bandits, including technologically-advanced "Scanner" bandits not encountered in the main game.

After the camp is cleared, it will become home to several Banuk tribespeople, including Opili.

Scanner Bandits

"They don't have Focuses, but they can sense me!"

These bandits carry large scanning devices on their backs that function similarly to a Scrapper's radar. If Aloy is within the detection radius of a Scanner bandit when a scan is performed, her position will be revealed even if she is hidden in tall grass.

Similar to the Power Cell components found on many machines, the bandits' scanning devices are vulnerable to Shock damage and can become overloaded if hit with Shock Arrows.

  • Stone Yield could be the old world location of Mammoth Hot Springs in Mammoth, Wyoming in Yellowstone National Park.[1]
  • Unlike the other bandit camps in the base game, there are no prisoners being held at this camp.
  • Ohlgrud's pre-combat lines will change depending on if the camp alarm has been lit or not.
  • Banuk and bandit patrols can potentially get involved due to their proximity to the camp, especially if the fight has gone outside of the main camp boundary.


  1. Mammoth Hot Springs is the most famous set of travertine terraces in Yellowstone.
