Kill as many chak as you can before the timer runs out, but be careful—your scrap rifle is prone to overheating! Destroying chak eggs will release a goo that will heal you and cool your rifle if you are close by, but it's likely to stir up the chak.
— Adventure objective
Scrap Rifle Field Test is an adventure in SCAR Bivouac in which the player must kill as many chak as possible using Scrap Rifle skills while not allowing their rifle to overheat.

and follow the path to the east. Interacting with the box of weapons on the ground at the end of this path (just south of Cascade Descent
) will bring up a dialog to take you into a single-player instance where you can interact with the flag to start.

- "Try 'em out on the bugs in the nearby nest. Give yourself a point for each bug you take down. Here's a tip: shooting their eggs at close range will cool your rifle while healing you."
- Continue reading.
- "Kill as many of the bugs as you can, while you can. Keep an eye on how hot your rifle gets. If your rifle overheats, ditch it and get yourself to a safe distance."—Terrill
- Lock and load. It's exterminating time.
- I'm not ready to be sent on a bug hunt.
- (If the adventure isn't available)
- This adventure is unavailable until Terrill has tested his other weaponry.
- Killing all of the chak eggs in one play through will reward the Chak Egg Scrambler achievement. Having the Bouncing Mushrooms Mastery will help to achieve this.
- This adventure is instanced, so you might not return to the same map upon leaving, especially if you do not have a party or squad with someone in the original map.
- Conditions dealt by the Scrap Rifle skills scale with the stats of the character. It may be easier to use a character with high condition damage.
