Scrap Rifle Field Test

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.

  • 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.
