It annoys me how you just can't get a completely clean version.

 

If you choose Apocalypse, the passenger seats at the back (for lack or a better term) is rusty no matter what. If you pick Future Shock, you're stuck with neon lights on the tracks and let's not talk about Nightmare...

 

Why R* is so adamant into not giving us choice and options ffs?

Future Shock also has futuristic wheel-less tracks, which may turn off some people.

 

And yeah, let's not talk about Nightmare. 🤮

They are clearly happy with their profits and don't want to make more money or make their customer base happier.

I don't know where the problem with some of the R* vehicle artists is but when it comes to the colorization of certain parts they really have a talent to mess-up royally. I mean the front bumper takes the chosen vehicle color but the rear one stays matt black. The front bar above the bumper is chromed and the part between the two rails above the lightbar stays grey. Then you've the bench part in the rear which stays rusty even if you remove that "design". The same goes for certain "cages" and other additional parts. The pattern for the carbon windscreen armor is also different from the one used for the other parts. WTF?

I like this build, it looks like a piece of futuristic construction equipment turned apocalypse tank.

Well I was set on getting one of these but the absurd prices and lack of overall versatility made me get the ZR-380 instead. Pretty sad, because I liked the addition of this vehicle and thought it would have some special advantages like increased resilience against damage or the ability to run over and wreck vehicles, something that ended up being a feature of the Sasquatch instead. So, my Sasquatch is basically filling the Scarab's intended role to a extent

My Scarab.  Future Shock version.  I called it "Kal'mar" which is 'squid' in Russian.  I love this tank!  It's fast, can carry 4 people, and all occupants including driver can fire through the windows with their own hand held weapons even with max armour on.  So useful for precision targeting.  Great on missions, as demonstrated below on one of the Dispatch missions.

I've been thinking about getting one for a while now, really tempted too, but 2.1 million dollars is a lot of money for a glorified ATV. Plus, I have plans for said 2 millions come Thursday night.

 

On one hand, it'll help me get into AW, get some of the trophies for the office and eventually unlock the Barracks Semi (lvl200 😒).

 

On the other, it doesn't have a dedicated spot like the RCV, Khanjali & whatnot, which means I'll have to rearrange my collection to accommodate it.

 

 

If I end up buying one, I'll go with the Apocalypse version and clean it up like TheLordMarvel's truck ... except mine will be black and will have the machine gun. That said, the Future Shock versions by Mattoropael (page 1) and White Shark (post above mine) are really tempting.

 

____

Stupid upgrades will add another 1.5 millions ... Sigh.

Bought one of these at full price and fully upgraded it, it was cool to look at but its a sh*t vehicle.

 

Sold it for an APC, cheaper, has an explosive cannon, can drive on water, excellent off road. It does everything the Scarab does and more at half the price.

I got mine simply to have another tank, but it's a handy little vehicle. Plus it can take more than 2x explosives. Interestingly though, bullets damage it way too fast. I reckon it's another bug.

@White Shark That's good to know. Thanks!

 

Q, I've noticed yours doesn't have the light accents around the tracks, can you remove them?

 

Which one do you recommend, Apocalypse or Future Shock? Do you "regret" picking the Future Shock over the Apocalypse one?

I never liked the APC, I tried it during missions dozen times and couldn't get myself to like it. Plus, I have a Stromberg for that sort of "activities".

 

Imo anything the APC does, the Stromberg does it better.

I used a really dull colour for the Accent like Moss Brown and those grungy colours.  It still shows up at night, but not half has bad as some of the colours.

 

And I prefer FS, simply because of no rust.  I can't stand rush on my vehicles. 

 

Separately, I would get the FS Sasquatch as well, but don't as the Apocolaypse version has full bullet protection.  The FS version does not.

This is my second one. I didn't like it the first time but I love it now. The Stromberg is fine but a free aim cannon is better than lock on Missiles for ground vehicles.

That sucks, it would've made going for the Apply All Types of Mods upgrade a lot more tolerable ... Uh well, I guess I'll end up stripping the Apocalypse once I get it.

Yeah I too don't like the rust, luckily the Apocalypse cleans up nicely.

Hold on, did noone noticed that the rear of the Scarab uses elements from a Classic Patriot?

Sure thing, it's made by HVY and not by Mammoth, but still.

So, an update is in order:

 

Haven't used it at all, not one bit lol, and the single AW game I played since I bought it was a Wreck It and it was restricted to stock vehicles.

 

I've been waiting for an event like this to upgrade my Scarab on the cheap, the event is finally here (and almost over) and I still can't get myself to spend the money upgrading it ... Sigh.

 

Hopefully, I'll get it over with tonight.

PC Magic'd my way to a more refined version of my previous FS Scarab setup - Worn instead of Matte (admittedly, it's not that different on this vehicle), and blacked out accent so it doesn't glow in the dark.

 

Went Ultra with this shot. 🤣
