What’s up guys, BucklingOne here and welcome
to my 16th Battlefield Hardline Weapon Guide! Today we’ll be taking a look at the Scorpion,
a PDW unlocked for the Mechanic class. The Scorpion was released alongside the Criminal
Activity expansion and does not require you to own the expansion, it is available to all
players and costs $36,000. The Scorpion we see in game is known as the
CZ Scorpion EVO 3 A1 and is manufactured by the Czech arms manufacturer Cesk� zbrojovka
Uhersk� Brod. Although the EVO 3 is the most recent design of the scorpion, it is
not the most iconic. That award goes to the original
design of the Scorpion with it’s unique metal folding stock and wooden pistol grip. In Battlefield Hardline the Scorpion is a
monster, spitting out bullets at an insane rate. This is where the strength of the weapon
really lies and is balanced to that effect. Damage for the Scorpion comes in at 24, which
is pretty respectable for a PDW. This means you will need 5 bullets to kill, provided
none are headshots. After 24 metres though, the damage will drop off to
12 per bullet, meaning you will need 9 bullts to kill at that range. Rate of fire, as I mentioned earlier, is an
insane 1150 rounds per minute. This is only beaten by the K10 with 1200 rounds per minute.
You can clearly see that this gun is designed to be used up close and personal. Reloading the Scorpion takes a very slow 2.2s
with a bullet left in the chamber, and when the magazine is empty it will take a hefty
3.2s for a full reload. This can and will get you in to trouble, as the reloads seem
to take forever and the clip of 31 bullets is
emptied in the blink of an eye. Recoil is extremely heavy on the Scorpion
when compared to the other weapons in its class, with a very high upward recoil of 0.35.
It has a tendency to kick slightly more to the right than to the left, with recoil values
of 0.4 and 0.2 respectively. The first shot multiplier on the Scorpion is 2.5. For attachments, I recommend using either
the RDS or Holo optics on the Scorpion, as there really isn’t much point in putting on
a higher magnification scope, because you will not be very effective at those distances.
For the accessory I recommend using the Laser Sight which will help tighten up the hip fire
spread, which you will be doing a lot of. Lastly for a Muzzle, I like to use the Heavy
Barrel as it helps with aimed accuracy and recoil, but the Muzzle Brake and Compensator
can be quite effective on it as well. For the more stealth focused players the Supressor
is a viable option also. Overall, I really like the Scorpion. It’s
insane rate of fire is a joy to use when you are within arms reach of your enemies and
it absolutely melts your opponents in close range.
The only problem I have is that the reload takes too long for my liking and it has been
the cause of many deaths for me, where I would have survived with a different weapon. The
magazine just empties so fast it’s almost impossible to manage it. For all these reason
I give the Scorpion an 4 star rating. What do you guys think of the Scorpion? Have
you used it so far and have you liked it or do you think it’s not that great?
