Self explanatory...the scarabs in extinction really piss me off, they always stand under the gun towers and camp the human base. Whenever someone comes out, it shoots and it homes too. It is nearly impossible to escape their shots, and even if u do, the blast will always catch you. Even an entire barrage of rockets isnt enough. I tried landing a Seraph on its back and thought of killing the driver fro inside but...the Seraph hit its surface then I got out, but just as I got out, I fell through. I tried this only once, and I dont know if it will work ever. Just wanna know how to defeat a scarab easily.

Don't play that map, the scarab is ripped from what I've heard. I'm sick of these scarab maps, they're for ten years olds who think scarabs are sick.

Yeah, I agree with Guilty MC. I'd like to see an attempt at a user-created Scarab though.

No that would fail, scarab is bad for game play, as you can see.

If you get behind and stay behind it in a pelican its pretty easy to kill.

attack its belly. i think that is the weakspot. Though that makes no sense for the covenent meant for this behemoth to burn the ground. Doing that would defeatthe purpose, but in that map, it was probably for balance. If that would work with the peli, nuke it. lol. That map is kinda fun tho. good for messing around, not serious. it is nice with ppl would just wanna have some nice dogfights, not serious snipers =P. nonetheless, those types of levels arent that great. Plus I think that was ripped. I heard that too.

Get someone to distract the scarab and use the longsword (I think theres one on that map? hmm...) to nuke it Ive took one down with a sniper rifle a Lucky hit I'm sure but it did happen and I never heard of the scarab being ripped.

K thanx. I tried to attack one with a Seraph but thats the worst thing to ever use at em. The plasma shots reflect and the aim isnt centered enough to get an accurate shot with either that or the plasma torpedo. So theres two ways to use the Seraph:- Get close and fire the torpedos and get urself caught in the blast or stay away, stand still and fire, allowing him to shoot u. Anyway, I havent heard of the Scarab being ripped. But I think that the Scarab's armor should be decreased big time. Why, the other team doesnt have any good weapons against it..and even the main gun isnt balanced, its powerful, has a huge blast and it even homes. And even a pelican behind it would take a long time to kill it... Sniper Rifle? WTF? It can take an entire barrage from a rocket launcher and still have a lot of his shield left.

Ya I heard of the Scarab being ripped(FileFront news) but the links the creator put in the readme are suspicious. Why would anyone put in a Scarab beta picture in its early stages?
