Used to summon Wasteland. It is found commonly in the desert during a Sandstorm and can be caught with a Bug Net.
The mutated scorpion has the same sprite as a normal scorpion. In order to tell the difference between the two, hover over the scorpions and their names will be different. The wasteland summons mutated scorpions as allies, but are not able to be caught with the Bug Net or similar items.
The Mutated Scorpion damages the player upon contact and has no other form of attacks, but still counts as a Critter.
