Motto: "He who focuses on the snake misses the scorpion!"
DESERT SCORPIONS are as harsh and unforgiving as the hot, arid conditions in which they operate. They lie in wait until the sun and sand have taken the fight out of their enemies, then strike with ruthless efficiency and deadly skill. Their desert climate operations gear is designed to preserve fluids, maintain body temperature, and assist in tracking, even in blinding sandstorms.
As conflicts in the Middle East continue to escalate, COBRA has benefited form an influx of indigent warriors already trained to fight and survive in desert conditions. They know how to maximize their resources and work together to overcome their enemies, with a zeal most soldiers do not possess. COBRA then adds the frightening technology of huge, heavily armed robotic scorpions, which patrol their encampments at night using infrared scanners to seek the body heat of anything foolish enough to risk a night assault.
No variations of Desert Scorpion (v2) are known to exist.
Desert Scorpion (version 2) was created using the head of Snake Eyes (v48) (2009), the torso and waist of Zartan (v13) (2007), the arms of Croc Master (v3) (2008), the upper legs of Snake Eyes (v28) (2007), and the lower legs of Cobra H.I.S.S. Driver (v2) (2008).
