All Phantoms are not wholly alien. They are created by weavers using human remains. Phantoms have been known to exhibit human-like neural patterns at times. They may attempt to reproduce human phrases, but don’t retain comprehension.
In close-quarters, a thermal phantom’s melee attacks are deadly. However, it is the enhanced superthermal attack that the player should worry about, as this can quickly whittle away at your health.
This species of typhon anthrophantasmus is first seen inside the trauma center, wandering around alongside a normal phantom.
When not engaged in combat, phantoms prowl and shamble through the hallways and foyers of TALOS-I. However, these shambling humanoids will mercilessly pursue you should they take notice. Blinking around, they can quickly catch up to you to deal melee damage.
Using turrets can be a boon when facing this monster, as the added firepower allows you to take down your enemy easier. However, as with normal phantoms, it is not beneficial to just let your turrets do the main work. Make sure your turrets are heavily reinforced or they will often die in one hit.
