Scandroids are a unique flying monster found in mutated, magma, midnight, decayed, snow, tundra, and volcanic biomes. They are also found in underground layers 3b and 5b, and Ancient Vaults with electric, fire, ice, and poison themes.

When provoked, Scandroids will deploy their legs, approach the player, and unleash a mid-range electric attack that deals 10 base damage.

This monster has a weakness (+50% damage taken) to Electric damage and a resistance (-50% damage taken) to Poison damage. Additionally, it cannot be inflicted with Poisoned.

Because of their electrical weakness and their medium range attack, a good strategy would be to back away from it, while firing an electrical ranged weapon.

Rare Form

A rare cultist variant of this monster can be found on bounty missions (including most notably The Dantalion story/bounty mission), and has a very small chance to appear in the wild. It has an identical drop pool, base stats, and spawn area. This variant fires a small yellow laser shot with a longer range, as opposed to the short ranged electrical blast the standard variant has.

This form can also be captured, and when caught will complete an entry in the Rare Pets collection.

  • The scandroid is most likely a reference to the Probe Droids from Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
  • A person named Lucaine might have invented the Scandroid since the weapon Lucaine's Energy Whip has a secondary attack identical to the Scandroid's ranged attack, (the attack being a slow floating orb of electricity that dissipates after a few seconds.) This however is only speculation, and the inverse could easily be true, with the energy whip being derived from Scandroid components.
