i like this thing so far. it looks cool. and its faster than i thought it would be. here is mine. yes i know it looks silly and ridiculous. but i figured why not. what can i say i love colors. i called it deadly rainbow. and its true. it might look like a little kids toy. but trust me only men could handle this thing.

I wish there was an stock Scarab with a CROWS .50 Cal Machine Gun option like the one from Fast and Furious that could be upgraded into any of the three Arena War styles.

I mean, they did it with the Impaler, why not with this vehicle and the Imperator too?

Anyone know if this takes up a regular garage space or a large one in the arena?

Regular.

 

It's actually a fairly small vehicle. Smaller than the Tyrant Aghakhi was complaining about.

Does the Future Shock laser weapon have any advantage, or is it just a gun of a different color?

From what I have seen just a fancy gunskin with no real advantage.

I got curious and bought a Nightmare, and I have this to say: Don't.

 

It has non-removable funny colors that make a Chrome Adder look good.

While you look away in disgust, that Scarab is f*cking your wife! Thats why they call it Nightmare.

First vehicle I purchased in the update, I admit I really like it alot- the general design & vibe of it is what got my attention.

However I sold it for the moment due to garage space, given I still CM & Heist alot with friends & randoms, the Scarab just feels like a much faster Khan but with only an machine gun.

I will buy it again  when I get my garages cleaned up & some space made.

Hi. Ive heard the scarab is considered a regular vehicle. does that mean that it could be customised at a weaponised vehicle workshop? like in bunker or the facility or in the back of a trailer? i really wanna know cos this could save me heaps of money! please try this out and let me know. - With regards, Sierra

Thinking about dropping some serious dollar on this.

Its basically a "Sports" Tank with the speed and the ram looks brilliant but then again as always I ask myself. Will I ever use it? I have a MkII, Deluxo, Stromberg and a Thruster...

For serious free-roam combat? No, you'll never use the Scarab. It isn't competitive in any role you can possibly think of.

 

It is, however, a very fun thing to drive, and shunt boost is fun as hell on this thing. I keep a nitro Future Shock for casual off-roading, and a shunt boost Apocalypse for silly ramming fun.

I dont play Free Roam Combat. The only people in my session are those I invite. Is it good for casual free roam and missions?

Considered a regular vehicle..? 

Hopefully that means it can be stored in other garages..?

I could do with a list of what new vehicles can be stored where.

You have better options for anything that involves combat. The Scarab can reverse on people with drive-by weapons like it's a Zentorno (except no throwables), but eh...

 

For casual freeroam and screwing around with friends? It's pretty good.

Yes, it can be stored in other garages. Only the Cerberus requires Workshop storage.

 

They (or at least, the Scarab) can also enter Los Santos Customs, which allows you to customize these vehicles to a limited degree.

So you can basically store 3 cerberus' then.

I have found that the bruiser can only be stored at the workshop garages, but not in the one spot reserved, (assuming for cerberus).

I am wondering which others can only be stored at the workshop.

Yeah but can the Scarab be upgraded fully at a MOC unlike at a Los Santos Customs?

I forget about mentioning the Ripsaw is also present in Mad Max: Fury Road as the Peacemaker. Could be great to have it as a customizable version, but well, since we already have the Dukes and now the Scarab, a Peacemaker is at the corner of the street.

Another good vehicle destroyed by weirdo devs.

Got myself an Apocalypse Scarab cleanest version possible and

it dies with a rifle clip or 4 heavy sniper rounds to the engine block.

I think that people would appreciate the Scarab more if it were a Weaponized Vehicle that could also be turned into an Arena Contender. It would have been like a tankier (pun intended) version of the Weaponized Tampa.

Yes absolutely, I love it's design and customization but I don't play arena and I just can't seem to find any use for this car, it's too slow to just do regular work in, can't protect me from aimbot npcs or players, no decent weapons to deal with npcs\players, too weak, this REALLY needed to be a gunrunning vehicle instead of an arena vehicle, but that's never been R* style of implementing new stuff.

I have to say it's brilliant, as a richmans toy. the apocalypse version cleans up nicely as well with only some minor rust remaining in the rear passenger footwell (easy enough to ignore). loving it for just messing about out in the rough:

Well yeah I can agree on that.

For me personally it has two flaws:

1. No bullet resistant windows. For atleast some minor protection.

2. The fixed gun is a little sh*te. It should have had the machine gun of the khanjali in a short barrel version. That way it would be more usefull in missions and freemode, without being OP.
