Afraid of the dark? No need, you got me.
— The Scout

The Scout is one of the four Dwarves in the game.
He is equipped with the Deepcore GK2, M1000 Classic, and DRAK-25 Plasma Carbine as his primaries, and the Jury-Rigged Boomstick, Zhukov NUK17s, and Nishanka Boltshark X-80 as his secondaries. He has the Grappling Hook, the Flare Gun, and the "Fox" Armor Rig as his equipment, and his Inhibitor-Field Generator, Cryo Grenade, Pheromone Canister, and Voltaic Stun Sweeper as his throwables.


As the Scout, you are the only one to carry the powerful Flare Gun, and the entire team depends on you for light. To scout ahead, you are also equipped with a Grappling Hook, letting you get to almost anywhere. But, while you are carrying an Assault Rifle and a Sawed off Shotgun, you should be careful not to get cut off from your team - the caves don't take kindly to lone explorers.
— Class Description

The Scout boasts the fastest mobility in the game due to his reusable Grappling Hook, and is the only class capable of placing sticky flares using his unique Flare Gun that can be used to light up much larger areas than the normal Flares are capable of.

The Scout is able to choose from four different types of grenade: The Inhibitor-Field Generator (IFG) which slows enemies down and increases their damage taken; the Cryo Grenade which flash cools the area around it, freezing most enemies instantly; the Pheromone Canister which covers enemies in pheromones, turning them into a target for other enemies to attack; and the Voltaic Stun Sweeper, a boomerang which bounces from target to target stunning and electrifying them as it goes.


All classes have twelve pieces of gear, each of which can be individually upgraded using Credit.png Credits and crafting resources. There are currently four unlockable weapons per class. Each weapon has their own assignment. Once an assignment for a weapon has been completed it then can be purchased within the upgrade terminal.
