Phages are enemies from Hacx. These big mutants are one of the most common enemies.
Phages will fire 3 orange orbs at the player. These orbs do not deal major damage but taking all three together will still make quite a dent. Their secondary attack consists of jumping on their target when it is close to them, dealing damage. With 150 hit points, they are still easy to destroy. They often assist Thugs and Androids in assaulting the player.
There also exists a variant of this foe disguised as a statue. Shooting the statue will activate it. Its stats are identical to the normal Phage.
