Roaming Scientist

The roaming scientists are NPCs that walk around junkpiles, researching them using the Geiger counter by day, and a flashlight by night. They are less aggressive than scientists patrolling the Military Tunnels, but wield an M92, just in case you get too close or attack them. When scientists spawn, they will be invulnerable until they activate fully. If a player hits a scientist, their reaction time when the player comes into view is faster.

Keep at a distance and refrain from using the shotguns; A good couple of weapons to use would be the SAR or the AK, these both require 3 headshots to kill (2 headshots and 2 body shots also work)

Crossbows do a great job if you headshot them.

Easily taken down by Crossbow as mentioned above, and as long as they havnt shot anyone in the reacent times u can go all the way up to them(DO NOT DRAW YOUR WEAPON OR ELSE THEY FIRE). I did a big of experimenting with them and i stood maybe 1meter away from one and he didnt shoot until i drew my weapon and ADS at him. Shotguns or SMG's are also effective as close range. just stay behind something and quick peek
