Turned loose to stalk the human survivors of a decimated military base, SCORPONOK burrows through the sandy ground of the Qatar desert. Tremor sensors in his armored hide can sense the running footsteps of the soldiers above him. He knows exactly where they are, and exactly when to strike. As the exhausted human pause for a moment to catch their breath, he bursts from the sand in a shower of dirt, tail striking and wicked claws grasping. Bullets bounce off his hide, and the soldiers are forced once again to run for their lives.
