Cauldron SIGMA Override. The Scrapper is one of the first machines you will likely meet in the game and it’s probably the most offensively-equipped in the first area. Scrappers are scavengers and you will find them "feasting" on the remains of defeated machines more often than not. They are distracted while doing this, making it quite easy to sneak up on them and perform a Silent Strike. You can even coerce a Scrapper to go after a corpse if you kill one in an area with them, without being alerted to your presence.

One annoying thing that Scrappers have is a radar on top of their bodies, which they can use to scan a limited area and find your location, even if you’re hiding in tall grass. In terms of combat, Scrappers have a few attacks at their disposal. They tend to like charging at you and performing a lunge, but this is rather slow compared to other machines and easy to dodge. They also have two ranged attacks, a sequence of about five energy balls they shoot, as well as a laser. Scrappers have very little health, so hitting them in either of their weak spots will down them quick.
