    The secret Shield-Weaver Armor is by far the best armor in Horizon Zero Dawn. The Shield-Weaver Armor protects you completely from a certain amount of damage until it flashes red. After taking cover, the armor recharges and you are invincible again.

    Before you can pick up the Shield-Weaver armor you have to collect 5 power cells.

    1 LOCATION: Ruins 00:03
    Can be accessed anytime

    2 LOCATION: All Mother 01:28
    Can be accessed during "The Womb of the Mountain" or after "The Heart of the Nora"

    3 LOCATION: Maker's End 02:18
    Reached Main Quest "Maker's End"

    4 LOCATION: The Grave-Hoard 03:36
    Reached Main Quest "The Grave-Hoard"

    5 LOCATION: Gaia Prime 05:26
    Reached Main Quest "The Mountain that fell"

    06:03 Check your side-quests and select "Ancient Armory", which leads you to the Ancient Armory Bunker where the Shield-Weaver armor is hidden.

    AVandelBusterI had all five power cells once I grabbed the one in Maker's End. That one and the one in All Mother can't be grabbed outside of their story missions. The other two can be grabbed earlier than normally required.

    Just thought I'd put that out there.

    BullyofSmegI missed the one at the top of Maker’s End, can you get back up to it after you finish the mission?

    beardybotIt may say that you have less power cells in your inventory if you've already taken some to the armoury. Once you collect the fifth, Aloy will say that should be all of the power cells.

    You can go back to all locations, including the top of maker's end.

    1. Ruins where you fell in as a child. Break some stone spikes with your spear to get to it. Can be accessed anytime as an adult.

    2. All Mother. Can be accessed during "The Womb of the Mountain" quest or during "The Heart of the Nora" quest in one of the side rooms and you have to crouch to get to it. If you miss it during the quest near the beginning, and you get to the point where the gates are locked, you will need to get most of the way to the end for the next quest to open up.

    3. Maker's End. During Main Quest "Maker's End" when you get up as high as you are going to go, look for some climbing handles to get even higher.

    4. The Grave-Hoard. During Main Quest "The Grave-Hoard" you will see this as you explore, it's hard to miss.

    5. Gaia Prime. During Main Quest "The Mountain That Fell" you will come to a point where you are outside and have just rappelled down. Look around to the left for a wall you can climb and it will be up there.

    The location you need to go to is on the right side of the map, your quest guide should lead you there. Getting the outfit itself requires two puzzles to be solved. The first is a military time puzzle.
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    That opens the door to where the armor is stored and another puzzle awaits in the back of that room, this one deals with degrees in a circle.

    To unlock the outfit, you must first find 5 power cells. 4 of the power cells are located in mission areas, which can not be reached, except during/after the mission. The power cells are used to power up locks; solutions for the lock combinations are shown in the video. The outfit allows you to take a couple hits without taking any damage and then it needs to recharge out of combat to be used again.
    Power Cell 1: (Main Quest) Womb of the Mountain - 0:35
    Power Cell 2: (Main Quest) Maker's End - 1:42
    Power Cell 3: (Main Quest) The Grave Hoard - 2:46
    Power Cell 4: (Main Quest) The Mountain That Fell - 4:52
    Power Cell 5: (Free Roam) Ruins - 5:45
