  1. Capture 4 Outposts

Rampaging Malice - Tips and Strategy Guide

Rampaging Malice is a pretty straightforward challenge. You have to use Daruk to capture 4 outposts under 8 minutes. Each outpost will have at least one Guardian variant for you to take down. There are Bokoblins and Lizalfos that will join the fray, but they should be the least of your concerns.

Recommended Dishes for Rampaging Malice

Cooking shouldn't be necessary to complete the mission. But, if you're really having trouble, a Chilly Fish Skewer can help reduce the damage you take from fire. You can also try dishes that increase your Movement Speed since Daruk is quite slow and you will have to traverse the map a bit between outposts.

Rampaging Malice - First Outpost

The first outpost you'll come across will pit you up against a Malice Guardian. The battle should be simple enough. Do your best to take down the guardian without using any special attacks. They will come in handy for the next outpost.

After securing the first outpost, you will have to pass through a corridor with falling magma bombs before reaching the second outpost. As you are rolling with Daruk, you will see indicators as to where the magma bombs will fall. Avoid these and you should be good to go.

In the second outpost, a Fire Guardian and Malice Guardian will be waiting for you. If things get too dicey, remember that Daruk's Protection (ZL) should keep you safe from all of the Guardian Lasers.

If you've been following along with the guide, you should have a Special Attack or two charged up from the battle in the first outpost. Lock on to one of the Guardians and use your Special Attacks to take them down. This really helps even the playing field, instead of going against the Guardians 2 versus 1. After weakening the guardians, continue to chain your attacks to take them out.

Rampaging Malice - Third and Fourth Outpost

With the second outpost out of the way, the worst is over. The remaining two outposts should have one guardian each. If you were able to take on the first two outposts, these last two should be a cinch. In case you are getting low on time, remember that elemental rods can also be used to make the enemy's Weak Point Gauge more fragile. Use them to your advantage.
