The Scorpion tank is a common Nod vehicle in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

Allegedly designed by Brother Marcion, the Scorpion Tank is Nod's de facto main battle tank. Emphasizing speed and fire rate over armor, the Scorpion is a poor matchup against heavier GDI vehicles, but can hold its own against the ubiquitous GDI Predator Tank.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Strong against vehicles, can target infantry, cannot target air. Fires while moving.

Game unit[edit | edit source]

A very effective single purpose unit, scorpion tank excels in taking down light vehicles and harvesters. Even with heavier armor, multiple Scorpions can take them out with ease.

The light armor means it's vulnerable to multiple Pitbulls, so the scorpion should use it's raider ability to maneuver out of danger while sill fighting.

The relatively quick lock-on rate and the long fire cooldown makes Scorpion very suitable for kiting.

Scorpion is very weak to infantry and air.

Personality[edit | edit source]

♀ Uses heavy scorpion idioms. Faithful to the brotherhood. When idle, moves turret around.
