It looks like a tank with an armored warrior.

Scorpitron is one of the most dangerous enemies in Wasteland.

Background[edit | edit source]

A tank shaped like an armored warrior, is by far the deadliest robot the Desert Rangers will have to face in post holocaust Las Vegas. With an automatic tail-mounted cannon, tons of armour and significant resistance, it can destroy any enemy in moments. Unprepared Rangers will not survive.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The single most powerful robotic enemy in the game. It is recommended to engage the Scorpitron at maximum distance and pelt it with rockets, laser arms and other high end weaponry to wear down its armour and blow it to kingdom come. It's also useful to train weapon skills, although Brother Goliath at the Citadel is a much better and less threatening target.

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • Las Vegas: A single Scorpitron appears at the intersection of Sahara Avenue, Paradise Road, and Las Vegas Boulevard. Once killed, it drops 1-10 LAW rockets and 1-5 TNT sticks.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • While the original Scorpitron moves on tracks, the upgraded Scorpitron 2.0 walks on six legs.
  • The Scorpitron was the inspiration for the robo-scorpions that appeared in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.
