Yeah, looks pretty... "alien". Maybe it's some SKYNET / CYBRID language-code that the Machines have printed onto their units?
I'm not familiar with the robots from WL1, so for all I know they're all from Vault Zero or they were some kinda worker-bots that were sitting around and then evolved guns after the apocalypse. That said, unless they are being actively produced or maintained, you'd think that they'd eventually run out of ammo or at least have varying degrees of ammo left... unless they were stocked up prior to the apocalypse.. designed for it even...
Also, I hope (well, "hope" is the wrong word) that the tail can move around, so that maybe the Scorpitron can really get the "high ground" with its tail gun -- meaning that any nearby cover is basically useless. Hell, I hope bullets go through crappy walls/cover too -- but that's probably for someone to talk about in a different thread.
Looks like it has 3x miniguns and some other sort of weapon too. I'm not familiar with what it had in WL1...
EDIT: As with [everyone?] else, I'm also looking forward to seeing nature retaking parts of the landscape. Maybe seeing a dead landscape could be a sign that you're walking into irradiated areas (even if you don't have a Geiger counter)
Can anyone who's played WL1 give the background on the Scorpitron? who designed and made them? purpose?
