The Ghoul Expired is a Grineer Ghoul that suffered from malnutrition or poisoning during the early parts of its development, causing their nervous systems to drive them forward and function as an ideal suicide troop. Aiding them in this task are a pair of shields with multiple bomblets strapped on. As with all Ghouls, on death they will release a cloud that inflicts and .
The Ghoul Expired will rush towards enemies, bashing them with their explosive shields (or in some noted cases, grappling their targets to deal as much damage as they can with the blasts). If they are unable to reach their targets, they will instead attempt to lob their bomblets over a distance instead. Sometimes rarely they'll just self-destruct completely as soon as they spawn.
