The Magnamalo will haunt you with constant setbacks, blows, jumps and its most lethal weapon, a cloud of infernal fire that will release and detonate in various ways.

Fighting the Magnamalo is something extremely annoying, since you will have to dodge its attacks all the time. We recommend that you do short and quick combos to be ready to protect you or dodge their stakes. This monster also has very powerful ranged weapons and jumps.

Techniques to defeat him: better weapons and weaknesses

As usual, the monster’s head is its weak point. This is where we will apply the most damage, either with cuts or with blows of a mace or shield. With projectiles we will cause less damage to any part of the body.

If you can’t hit him on the head, opt for a much more affordable area, blade arms. They are more accessible and you can disable one of their offensive resources. And speaking of suppressing threats, if you want to have a calmer combat, you’d better try to cut off its tail, since the vast majority of their attacks come from there.
