How to Defeat Phorid?Phorid in Warframe

Phorid is an enemy that you face during the Infested Invasion (Phorid Manifestation), which you will need to track down and destroy.

This boss appears only during the Infested Invasion and is similar to the Charger (Infested) but is different in size and color.

Phorid appears to have similar abilities to Nyx, which is how it can seem to communicate with the Tenno as it taunts them and even uses the Psychic Bolts ability.

You can easily defeat Phorid by keeping your distance and focusing your attack on it, but there is a possibility that it will instantly kill you with its Psychic Bolts ability.

Phorid has Fossilized Armor, which makes it take additional damage from Gas, Blast, and Slash attacks but this also means it is resistant to Radiation, Gas, and Cold damage.

Tips

  • Phorid is slow and moves sluggishly, you can easily outsmart it by using the area around you as a way to separate yourself from it.
  • Since Phorid has different armor from the other Infested enemies that you will encounter, it is best to have a separate weapon to deal damage to it.
  • Infested enemies are usually weak and you can kill them to get Health Orbs or ammunition while fighting against Phorid.
  • Taking too long during the fight once you are up close to Phorid can end up getting you killed instantly, take it out as soon as you can.

Final Thoughts

Nyx is a great Warframe when it comes to causing trouble and taking the attention off of yourself or your squad members.

With the Mind Control ability, Nyx can pick out a stronger enemy which can help take on the lesser ones around you.

Psychic Bolts can deal a good amount of damage and is great for reducing enemy defenses, increasing the damage they take from you and your team.

Chaos works well when Nyx is fighting several enemies to make them attack each other and Absorb is great for tanking and blasting a lot of enemies at once.
