Scrap Collector is a mini boss in the Arrenius system. Its flamethrower, while short ranged, can kill players around its level very quickly, and its Mine Launcher makes it dangerous to circle for low level players.
The Scrap Collector attacks with a reasonably powerful flamethrower and uses mines to kill players with weak health and shield and unlike most enemies besides (almost) all nexars, it has a harden shield that can reduce all damage to 1 for a set amount of time, as can players. The best strategy is to use a long ranged weapon such as acid blaster, found in Hyperion weapon factory, or piercing gun, found in the Kapello weapon factory. When it uses harden shield, keep at a safe distance from it until the shield wears off and continue attacking until it dies.
Scrap Collector spawns at the Ruined Scrap Yard in Arrenius at 253, -253.
Players who kill Scrap Collector for the first time will receive 6,000 XP.
