Military Tunnel Scientist

The Military Tunnel Scientist is very powerful, often wielding military grade weapons, such as a LR-300 or a MP5. They occasionally drop high grade, but rare weapons such as the M92 or SPAS-12. They are spotted around the unique Military Tunnel monument and do not roam it alone. They are better geared than other Scientist NPC's. These scientists can and will throw F1 grenades at you, so it is recommended you don't stand in one place for too long.

When you fight the scientists, do NOT get close to them. They have a lot of damage but bad range. Keep your distance, use a bolty, SAR or any weapon with decent range to effectively kill them.
Military Tunnel Count Main: 1 Scientist often times outside or to the right Caves: 1 in caves and sometimes 1 outside of cave inside of tunnels Elite Crates: 2 right outside of the crates Elite to Well: 1 on top of the train next to crates Well: 1-2 in the well
These scientists often times have LR's, rarely MP's and very rarely a Spas-12

The scientists, as stated above, are equipped with high-quality, high-damage weapons. Their aim at a distance is quite bad, but their aim at close range is exceptional. Do NOT get close to them. A good trick I realized is making F1 Grenades, and whenever you hear them, throw one at them. Grenades have had a lethality boost, so it will only take 1 grenade and maybe a bullet or two to finish them.

Okay i found out something interesting here the other day, I got up close by a mistake with a scientist with a Spas12, paniced like hell drew my sword and started hitting like a crazy, and to my suprise he put his gun away and drew a sword himself and it saved me cuse they seem to be super bad as melee fights. Also 2x HS with a crossbow with normal arrows is a kill. or at some spots in the tunnels they seem to often me "stuck" in place so u could bring fire arrows and quickpeek them and burn em up.

These guys have low damage output at distance and also a weak point in close range soo let me tell you if you want to safe and play 15 minutes to loot military tunnels or agressive in about 7 minutes.
first: what weapon? bolt ak lr300 or for agressive mp5 costum smg m92 and dubbelbarrel 2x
agressive walk up to them and then lure them in a spot where they are exposed and give them hell
passive just take on long range like a normal person if you instand kill him he will push and other ones too

scientists have a breif period of time before they acctually shoot you. they dont always have their gun out so take advantage of the time you have before they pull their gun out and try to kill them then. if you are good with a python you can kill them super easily before they even pull out their gun.
this also works with the new puzzle with killing the scientists behind the door if you have a partner with a double barrel or a python you can generally kill them without them shooting back.

This page is slightly outdated as three medical syringes can rarely be dropped by a milli tunnel scientist

These scientists throw F1 grenades, I recommend you listen closely and don't stand in one place for too long.

They are quite aggressive, pushing you if you stay in one spot and also throw grenades so be careful but quick
