    erod550Popped immediately for me on the 5th one only doing one location in Tut and Ramses. Follow the map locations above and you should be good. Super easy kills at 55 with a level 55 Smoke and Mirrors bow. Never even had to fight any of them in melee.

    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.

    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.

    The scorpions can be defeated before you reach character level 55. Make sure the difficulty is set to easy and have fire bombs equipped and bows that deal fire damage and keep your distance or lure it to a place where your able to climb on something and unload on it. I've found that fire deals a lot of damage. If it isn't dead after you've unloaded all your arrows and fire bombs, make sure you have the skill that grants you full adrenaline when you enter a conflict and hit it with a heavy weapon like an axe or mace. Their attacks are very easy to avoid. As it's charging at you, it will try to impale you with it's stinger and as long as your backing up it will miss and then you have a few second window to hit it with and adrenaline attack or a heavy attack. It should only take a few of these after youve hit it with all your ammunition. I was able to beat 2 of them so far starting at level 47.

    The SCHWARTZ 00Also, make sure you get the ability called Favor Of Osiris, the one that auto regenerates arrows and tools while you're in the Afterlife. Forgot to mention that bit.

    wolfzero01nice solution, I was able to get 3 out of the 4 scorpions in the afterlife before I was lvl 50, be careful when using a rock or something else to climb on to kill them as they sometimes will spit poison at you

    Sushi Washi4268Also, it's best to do it when you're above ground. If you attack them while above the ground, for some reason, they don't detect you!
