    You can find a Scorpitron, a large scorpion-like machine, roaming around the Colorado wastes while traveling in your vehicle. You'll be given the option to attack it directly or use your sneak ability to grab some gear without it noticing. Eventually, using sneak too many times will lead you into a battle anyway as you'll get caught.

    While it may seem a daunting fight at first, it can be 1-Hit Killed by ramming it with your vehicle. Simply select your truck in battle and move it all the way to where the Scorpitron is and it'll be killed instantly for an easy 10G.

    EDIT: It seems as though you MUST take down the scorpitron in an overworld encounter and will not unlock during the "War of the Worlds?" quest.

    Another opportunity to grab this achievement comes from the "War of the Worlds?" quest, where you'll get the opportunity to fight a Scorpitron alongside some friendly robots in the Tellurium Mines.

    SkankX50I didn't get the achievement from the "War of the Worlds?" quest, only from the overworld encounter scorpitron. No clue if that's intended, a bug, or an oversight.

    GooseBoxLiveCurious, did the robots strike the final blow against the scorpitron? I wonder if that makes any difference. If not, it might only be available from an overworld encounter, that's where I got mine.

    odiedodieYeah I didn’t get it from the war of the worlds. Pretty sure I got the killing blow.

    Poopdog M60RiotWas just about to come and say this. I got final blow on War of the Worlds quest and it did not unlock. In the field fight I pulled my car right up into its front part and got the kill. Still throwing you an upvote since you crossed out the previous.

    DarqStalkerI'm still confused by this solution.
    "It seems as though you MUST take down the scorpitron in an overworld encounter" Do you mean ram it with your vehicle when you are driving around? This does nothing. Driving it into the scorpitron gives you option to sneak or fight. I did 2 sneaks then I had to fight. This brought me to a normal battle. I used my vehicle to run over the small robots and ram into the Scorpitron a few times and eventually kill it with my vehicle weapons. No achievement.

    How do you get the 1-hit kill?

    EDIT: Ok, after fighting it twice I finally realized the achievement stealth unlocked without a notification :) So it worked.
    I'm level 15, have the 3rd vehicle upgrade that gives me 1000 HP and have to hit it 2-3 times to kill it.

    GooseBoxLiveHey DarqStalker,

    What I meant by that is that you must activate the battle with it by encountering it while roaming Colorado in your vehicle. It seems like yours might have glitched out, since killing it while in that battle should have popped the achievement. To get the 1-Hit kill, all I had to do was command my vehicle in combat to drive over and ram into the Scorpitron and it took it out in 1 hit the way it does with most other enemies you run over.

    I didn't have any special equipment attached to the vehicle and I think I was only around level 15 or so when I encountered it. If you didn't get it from that encounter you may want to try to reload a past save since that's the only way to get this achievement that's been confirmed. Knowing how glitchy this game is, I'd say it's not out of the question that it may be a little buggy.

    JusteSame here, I have only one upgrade on my vehicle and one-shotted the scorpion with it - just set your team up in a defensive position and drive your rig right into the scorpion. I also did this right after the War of the Worlds quest and it did not pop there.

    PhattyPneumoniaIt looks like you can also unlock the achievement in the Coded Transmissions secondary mission. At the end of the mission there is a jury-rigged scorpitron and killing it unlocked the achievement.

    PunidueCan confirm, I unlocked it in the secondary mission "Coded Transmissions" while the one in "War of the Worlds?" doesn't

    BrutexCHieftainQuick note, the gold scorpitron encounter also doesn't unlock the achievement.
