Monster Information

Malphus is an Inferno monster, obtained early in the Strongbox. It has very low health, much like Bolt, high speed, and also possesses the ability to jump over walls.

Due to Malphus's fragility, it must be protected by other monsters. Once the other monsters are flung in, Malphus can proceed to the nearest Resource Building, walled or not, and start attacking it. Once it is finished looting, it can then jump over more walls and reach a Storage Silo or Resource Pod, jumping over the wall that protects it.
