Poltergeist Enemy Profile
Intended to be the menacing phantom, these abominations are the by-products of failed transformations. Weavers often create phantoms from the husks absorbed by mimics.
The Poltergeist is very stealthy due to its invisiblity. Due to this, they often seek to ambush their prey and attack mercilessly with objects.
These monsters have an unpredictable behavior. At times, they won’t be hostile. Other times, they will ambush you and use lift field to render you vulnerable to other typhon’s ranged attacks.
Using typhon lures can draw out poltergeists. Scan them with your psychoscope.
Thankfully, in spite of their invisibility, poltergeists are very weak monsters. Kill them with a pistol or a shotgun. Make sure you aim at their last known location–just in case.
They are very weak against fire as well, so if you’re sure that a poltergeist is in the very immediate area, don’t be afraid to unleash a blast of Superthermal.
