SAND SCORPION forces are products of a secret program run by Dr. Mindbender to produce fiercer and more effective troops for the Cobra legions. Hand-picked Sand-Viper troops have their DNA recombined with their arachnid namesakes. Further recombination has given them scales on the sides of their bodies, which allow them to breath in the sand. This is irritating and uncomfortable, so all SAND SCORPION troops come out of the sand in a very bad mood and ready to fight anything in front of them. When completely buried in sand, they wait patiently in ambush. Sensing the approach of a victim by feeling vibrations through the packed desert floor, they erupt from their burrows to attack, with bio-mechanical scorpions mounted on their backs to slash with razor-sharp claws and spit venom. Heavily armored, fast, and skilled in weaponry, they are formidable opponents best dealt with from at a distance with a laser-guided missile.
Sand Scorpions are available on the MUX as Disposable Characters, with a much simpler application. They can also be apped directly as full character (format: Sand Scorpion 1234), or upgraded from DCs to OCs.
Sand Scorpion forces are directly led by Neurotoxin.
