Scorpions will hop towards you if approached from the sides, but won't be able to see you if you are at a different height to them.
Jump onto them to avoid the attack altogether or counter attack with the whip before they hit you.
They can be sacrificed to Kali while unconscious.
While scorpions normally attack you only if you're in front of them within some distance, if you get too close behind them, they will jump and attack forward, even if the spelunker is behind them. Additionally they might be able to see the spelunker through walls at a specific distance.
If a scorpion appears in a level, it's very likely more scorpions will be in the same level.
- Sometimes when a scorpion jumps they might clip into a wall and die.
- Sometimes if a scorpion is thrown before its stun time ends, they will wake up and remain floating in the air.
