The Glyphid Menace is not, as one might assume, a close relation of the Glyphid Acid Spitter. While their attacks are relatively similar, they in fact represent two entirely distinct avenues of Glyphid evolution. The Menace is an exponentially greater threat and displays a sophistication almost unheard of among their kin. They burrow into the ceiling, hiding from view, only emerging to rapidly fire blistering volleys of corrosive goo at any would-be invader. Handle with extreme prejudice.
~ Miner's Manual Description

The Glyphid Menace is a hostile Creature found on Hoxxes. It can be found in any region of the planet. It is a member of the Glyphid family, though its appearance is quite radical compared to its brethren. It has the same body shape compared to most Glyphids but is coloured a bright cyan all over its body. Its mouth is much smaller, while its abdomen is considerably over-developed with two bright blue sacs on either side of its body and a heavily armoured carapace on top.

The Menace is a ranged combatant. While most Glyphids blindly charge towards the Dwarves, the Menace makes use of a hit-and-run strategy and can rapidly move across the entire map thanks to its burrowing ability. It prefers to hang off walls, far away from the center of a battle, making use of its long range acid attacks.

To attack, it fires volleys of acid at one target at a time. Individual shots from this attack are weak but unlike other projectile users, the Menace has a high rate of fire and its acid pelts can easily whittle down a Dwarf's health.

Each volley of fire lasts for a few seconds, but the Menace will keep firing if it is not attacked. If it takes any damage it will burrow into the cave walls once its volley ends and try to find a new location to attack from. If it emerges in a position which is too close to the Dwarves, or does not offer a good firing angle, it will burrow back into the terrain and try to find a new spot. When it burrows, it takes a couple seconds to emerge again.

A Menace's side sacs can burst once they take enough damage.

When it comes to dealing damage to break the weakpoints weakpoint damage don’t apply.
Any Area Damage can damage and potentially break them, which can be detrimental since they don’t benefit from weakpoint damage.
The CRSPR Flamethrower and the Cryo Cannon can’t damage breakable weakpoints.
