Fiend Enemy Profile
Fiends are Mass Effect Andromeda‘s space bears. Walking on all fours like a gorilla, this armored beast roams the valleys of Kadara. It is quite protected by armor. Wound a Fiend and you’ll see that its blood is colored blue.

Fiends are monstrous beasts with a heavily armored carapace. Unlike the stealthier wraiths, Fiends are besieging units that attack head-on, scattering enemy forces and destroying entrenched enemy positions. They attack non-kett without appearing to need orders; some scientists believe Fiends respond aggresively to an abscence of kett pheromones or similar cues.
A Fiend’s carapace is permeated by dense cartilage that makes it both strong and flexible, and acts as a shock absorber for incoming fire. Preliminary study of their nervous system suggests that nerve transmission is dampened above a certain pain threshold, allowing a Fiend to detect injury but not be slowed by it. Reports of encounters are often accompanied by casualty lists, and the militia advises that only a well-armed and organized team should handle a Fiend at full rampage.
Fiends might be somehow related to Eirochs, which are colored red or blue.
As with every Mass Effect game, taking out armored opponents require using fire-attuned skills and abilities. Whittle down its armor with the flamethrower ability so you can take it out easily with other abilities. Keep barraging it with ammunition from a distance. When it roars and charges you, quickly dodge it. Rinse and repeat.
