Disciplined and accurate

Malice is one of Shadow Stalker's acolytes, first introduced during Operation: Shadow Debt. He takes the form of FrostFrostIcon272.png Frost with a Prime Skin, minus his signature shoulder armor, with Stalker's helmet and large chunks of machinery around his body.

As of Update 29.5 (2020-11-19), Malice can now spawn in The Steel Path missions.

Tactics[]

Malice wields an OpticorCrpBFG.png Opticor and a Heat DaggerHeatDagger.png Heat Dagger. Malice is capable of casting MagnetizeMagnetize130xDark.png Magnetize against enemy Tenno, forcing them to soak up fire from their teammates and making it near-impossible to avoid his Opticor blasts. In addition, Malice is capable of summoning Nemes drones (using the summoning animation of a Drahk Master).

Patch History[]

Hotfix 29.5.4 (2020-11-25)

  • Acolytes have been given the fancy “boss Health bar” treatment!

Update 29.5 (2020-11-19)

THE STEEL PATH: ACOLYTES JOIN THE BATTLE & MORE!
  • As you play in any Steel Path mission, Acolytes will spawn and attack - defeating the Acolyte grants a guaranteed drop of 2 Steel Essence. Beware! If you get downed by an Acolyte, they'll escape and you won’t receive any Steel Essence!
    • The Steel Path Acolytes now have received the same Status Effect eligibility treatment that Liches received in Update 27.3 earlier this year. This means we have slightly increased their health (scaled by squad size) as the Status Effect eligibility makes them easier to kill.
    • Reduced the Melee attack damage on Malice to avoid the more reported 1HKOs.
  • In essence (ha), there is virtually no RNG with Steel Essence anymore. Acolytes will always appear in regular missions (Endlessly in Endless missions.). The time at which they choose to appear may be a bit random, but if you kill mobs, they will come!
    • Please note, Acolytes won't spawn in Archwing missions on the Steel Path.

Hotfix 18.4.1 (2016-01-25)

  • Introduced.
