Cargo Ship Scientist

Found on the cargo ship event/monument, these scientists are quite similar to their Oil rig, and military tunnel counterparts. Armed with M92's, MP5's, Spas-12's and LR-300's, these scientist can easily kill poorly geared players at close range. It is recommended to make use of mid tier armor and weaponry when fighting these scientists to maximize your chances of survival. These scientists usually do not move, unlike their counterparts, with most having fixed spawn locations on the cargo ship. Therefore, it is best to learn all predictable spawns, and apply strategy when clearing the cargo ship of the scientists.

There are a total of 3 scientists that can see your boat if you reach very close to both sides of the cargo ship.
  • 2 scientists just above the pilot room (they can't aim very well but a few hits can hurt a bit)
  • 1 scientist on the Crow's Nest in front of the cargo ship.

They are armed with LR-300s, M92 or MP5A4s, if you can, make your RHIB or rowboat go forward and switch seats to shoot them while your boat can still go forward.
There's also a scientist patrolling around the ladder areas, if it's a SPAS-12 scientist, 2-4 shots can kill you instantly, be sure to check if its patrolling the side of the cargo ship your going to climb on.
