Zitat von EA Apoc - [URL="http://www.commandandconquer.com/news/beware-scorpions-sting"]Quelle[/URL]"After several years of development, the private unveiling of the new Scorpion Mk II was followed by shock from the audience. A welcome reaction. Following this, Gideon released a statement through unofficial channels; "The Children of Nod are rising, finally they understand. The treacherous will not escape the grasp of Nod's claws, or the whip of it's tail."
The Scorpion's Sting
The Scorpion Mk. II is equipped with state-of-the-art laser technology, derived from the previous generation’s Spitfire Capacitors. Using the power output of its Liquid Tiberium generator, the Scorpion wields a miniaturized Obelisk of Light, which, despite its smaller size, is fully capable of slicing through even Crawler armor. The weapon is not without tradeoffs however, as the Scorpion’s standard anti-tank cannon was dropped because of the immense power consumption of the Obelisk.
Taking Gideon’s passage to heart, the Scorpion Tank evokes the visage of a true scorpion, giant grasping claws included. These claws are more than just aesthetic as they are designed for actual use in grappling prey. Scorpion Tanks can hold medium vehicles in place by grasping them in their claws and firing a short-range electromagnetic current to disable the vehicle as the tail laser eats away at them. Lighter units can actually be picked up completely by the claws, making for a terrifying sight as infantry are grabbed and dragged off kicking and screaming into the darkness.
The reintroduction of burrowing has allowed for more interesting tactics to be developed in the TCN era, without the need for power-hungry stealth generators. The Scorpion can use its pincers to quickly burrow underground and can resurface amongst enemy troops. Frequent observed tactics include surrounding Mastodons and unburrowing to avoid the deadly artillery volley or unburrowing amidst an infantry platoon and kidnapping valuable prisoners for interrogation.
