This is a weapon few people know about because it wasn’t obtainable for the longest time. It only drops from Judge Hightower, a target of opportunity in Lectra City, who until todays patch did not actually drop the things in his lootpool (You may now also look forward farming the Conference Call Shotgun and the Carrier Assault Rifle from him if you are after one of those).
The Scorpio XL is a Tediore Pistol that when thrown creates a turret that is based on Rolands Scorpio Turret from Borderlands 1. It has a shield and shoots both normal bullets and rockets.
However, it seems that the shield health is connected to the turrets health and also way too low, making it extremely easy for enemies to destroy the turret. Because it also sucks as a pistol (which goes for basically any Tediore pistol) it’s just not worth using.
I feel like it needs considerably more turret health (I’m talking like 15 times of what it does have right now) and also just more damage or rate of fire.
