    There are five locations in total: 4 in the Afterlife, 1 in each area (Aaru, Aten, Heb Sed, Duat), and 1 in the real world. The 4 Afterlife locations require you to kill a level 58 scorpion, so I recommend reaching level 55 before trying. The scorpion with the crown over its level is the one that needs to be killed to complete the location. In the real world, you must visit the Spring of Serqet outpost and complete the location. Upon completion of the 5 locations you will also receive a new outfit.

    Here is a video guide with English commentary!

    Marine1TenDitto on the failure to unlock. I did not enter the other-world maps in chronological order and beat Tut prior to Ramses. Finished with game and wondering how long it will take to unlock this. Sigh!!

    HolyHalfDeadKilled the Scorpion when I was level 50. Stood on top of the nearby rock and worked my way through my supply of fire arrows.

    If anyone is having this not unlock despite verifying that you have the correct locations completed, go into your quest menu and press Y to reload quest objectives. It doesn't matter what quest you have loaded, but this seems to have it validate achievements as well, and unlocked this one for me.
