"The SCORPION is perfect for wholesale slaughter. A high rate of fire coupled with low accuracy makes it ideal for ,ahem, crowd control."
—Game description
The Scorpion is a submachine gun that appears in Dead Trigger.



The Scorpion is a submachine gun, which means it deals decent damage, but drains ammo very quickly. It is the first submachine gun that can be unlocked in the shop, and the very first weapon obtained it the game. It does exceptionally well against individual walkers, and does a decent amount of damage against a small group. It is more lethal when equipped with the Damage Booster, due to its damage multiplying factor, which enables a faster killing rate. It features a small 20 round magazine in the beginning, but after upgrades, it can kill up to six zombies easily without reloading, making it a rapid-fire death machine.

It is the first submachine gun unlocked, therefore, the weakest of the three. This, however, does not mean it is incapable of inflicting as much damage as the other two. When fully upgraded, it is very lethal, with an increase in every field, higher magazine capacity, more damage, better range, etc.

It is best used as a secondary because of its small range and its ability to drain ammunition very quickly, which could be a deadly factor in timed missions or missions where a certain number of zombies needs to be killed.

It is advisable to aim for the head to quickly kill incoming zombies, especially at early levels, should this weapon be used as a primary.


The Scorpion has three tiers to upgrade to. With the initial purchase, and upgrades, this gun is priced at a grand total of Shop icon 173,000.
