The Ghost Nian is one of the weakest and most common Nians to capture in the Chinese New Year (Event), mainly due to the fact that upon the player's death, they will spawn and remain stationary (similar to the Ghost from the Ghostbusters 30th (Event)). It looks like a Lion and Dragon hybrid. It is also much weaker compared to the Great Nian and the Hungry Nian.
Killing the Ghost Nian gives the player 100 good fortune points for the kill.
This Nian is quite easy to finish, like Ghost during the Ghostbusters 30th (Event) but with a bigger health. Each explosive weapon such as Bazooka, Howitzer Gun, and Grenade Launcher deals 40% extra damage, and explosive gadget such as Firecracker, Hand Grenades and Ultra Grenade deals 60% more damage towards the Nians.
Overall, just use explosives. Although Fire Fist deals quite a decent damage towards this Nian. Other non-explosive weapons can be used to kill these, but it takes a longer time, and more shots.
- It takes 4 to 5 shots, from the Double Barrel Shotgun to kill this Nian. This indicates that the health of this Nian is almost as high as an Elite Enemies in Missions Mode. Although, Revolver/Dual Revolvers only requires around 8 to 9 shots to banish this Nian. It maybe due to the Nians are only head-monster, it is counted as headshots.
