Best way to kill rad-scorpions?

#1groccoPosted 2/12/2009 7:45:56 AM
I fricking HATE rad scorpions, partly because I hate spiders IRL, and partly because they move so fast in the game. What is the best weapon to kill them the fastest with?

It's OK to say whatever you want on Gamefaqs, as long as you preface it with, "In my opinion..."

Dart Gun slows them down to a crawl so you can pretty much take them down with anything. Otherwise sneak attacking with weapons that have high critical damage will obviously be good too.

You get the highest VATs percentage when aiming at the tail. It is also weaker than most of the other parts.

A tip for fast enemies is to drop a land mine between you and it and back up a bit. The landmine will usually cause a lag crippling injury slowing the enemy down. The dart gun does not cripple a radscorpion as the poison on the dart is radscorpion poison.

Most energy weapons can instant kill with a critical hit.

When also else fails.. NUKE IT!

Try it, and you'll see that it DOES cripple a Radscorpion's legs.

Asbeau,

you are right, it does cripple them, but it still doesn't have a real effect. They're as fast as normal.

Dart gun, Flamers work quick on them, the Minigun... any devastating close-range shotty - Knee capper or The Terrible Shotgun. That's all I can think of.
