Intruder, you will not escape the eyes of my Robo-Scorpions! Or their pincers!Doctor Mobius

Robo-Scorpions are robotic scorpions found in the Big MT in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.

Background

Pre-War

The X-42 Giant Robo-Scorpion was a prototype being developed and tested in the X-42 robo-warfare facility for military use[1].

Doctor Mobius

Robo-Scorpions are self-constructed[2] and controlled by Doctor Mobius from the Forbidden Zone[3]. They can assemble themselves from "floor panels and parts scattered about"[4][5]. Mobius got the idea from Radscorpions[6] and upgraded them in an attempt to "make better scorpions"[7], to use them as his personal army, as his walking eyes and mobile bullhorns[6].

Doctor Mobius' recordings[8][9] and The Think Tank scientists claim the Robo-Scorpions drain inteligence through their stingers[10][11]. The Think Tank relies on Doctor 0's findings for this claim, but no one in the Think Tank is willing to test them because they are terrified[12].

Gameplay

The common variants of the Robo-Scorpion are very durable, being highly resistant to small arms fire and boasting considerable protection against pulse weaponry in comparison to other robots. Like other Robo-Scorpion variants, they will explode on death.

Models

Robo-Scorpions appear in Mk. 1-5 and Mk.1b-5b (data for Mk. 2 and Mk. 2b exist, but both are unused), and come in a Pincer, Blaster and Bomber variants, as well as different sizes relative to their Mark. Their appearance in the game depends on the player character's level and the importance of the location in which they appear.

Notes

  • All Robo-Scorpions can be disabled with the Robotics Expert perk.
  • Mobius stops speaking through them after the completion of Old World Blues.
  • Even if the Courier teams up with the Think Tank and Mobius after completing the Old World Blues quest, Robo-Scorpions are still hostile to the player character.
  • Robo-Scorpions will explode even if melted or disintegrated by plasma/laser energy weapons.

Quotes

Quotes are from the Robo-Scorpions, but are transmitted to the Courier by Doctor Mobius through the Robo-Scorpions' bullhorns.

Appearances

Robo-Scorpions appear only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.

Bugs

  • Xbox 360Xbox 360 Some Robo-Scorpions may continue to quote Mobius if the player completes Old World Blues without killing him.

    Doctor Mobius: " {As if self-evident} Well, every scientist needs an army. Mine came to me after these rather large scorpions kept coming in from the {intentional} dessert. Like poisonous frosting.
    How scary, I thought! But they had survived when nothing else had. Perfect candidates for improvement, as a reward for their tenacity.
