Mal the Arachnid
Weapon Drop ZM SG 7(g)

Mal the Arachnid is an Imperial sniper ace who is hidden to the north east of the main base during Marina's Challenge: The Wildwood II -- Sniper Trail, the third mission of the Challenges of the Edy Detachment downloadable content for the original Valkyria Chronicles videogame.

Mal is armed with a ZM SG 7(g) which is also your reward for defeating him.


  • Unlike many enemy aces Mal the Arachnid has relatively low evasion but care must still be taken when attacking from the front as he can still dodge incoming shots.
  • The position that Mal takes behind the player's primary base can easily be missed; it is easy to assume that the area is clear of troops as he will not move into a position where he can draw a direct line of sight with your units unless first provoked.
