A Scorpion is a hostile mob that will only attack the player at night or at low light levels (such as in a cave), or if the player attacks them first.

As of DEV v8.0.0, Zombies and Skeletons can now ride Scorpions.

They come in four varieties. If a Scorpion attacks the player, it has a chance of causing a negative side effect: 

  • Dirt Scorpion: Poisons the player. Drops Chitin and Dirt Scorpion Sting.
  • Cave Scorpion: Causes a Nausea effect. Drops Black Chitin and Cave Scorpion Sting.
  • Nether Scorpion: Sets the player on fire. Drops Nether Chitin and Nether Scorpion Sting.
  • Frost Scorpion: Slows the player down. Drops Frost Chitin and Frost Scorpion Sting.

Like Vanilla Minecraft Spiders, Scorpions can climb up vertically, meaning that they can scale up walls and fences. As this is the case, walls and fences make poor protection for the player and any tamed mobs.

Scorpions have a chance of dropping a Scorpion Sting or Chitin when killed. Each Scorpion will drop a Sting or Chitin of its own type. Scorpion Stings can be used as low durability weapons, or used to craft a Scorpion Sword. Chitin can be used to craft Scorpion Armor. When a full set of scorpion armor of a certain type is worn, the player gains a special ability.

Taming and RidingEdit

As of the 4.4.0 update, Scorpions can now be tamed. By killing a Scorpion that has babies on its back, the babies will fall to the ground. The babies can then be picked up by right-clicking on them, which will allow the Scorpion to be named. You have to right-click on the baby Scorpion when its just fell from its mother Scorpion's back, if it grows bigger, it can't be tamed by right-clicking or any taming method at all. Fully-grown tamed Scorpions may attack other mobs, including your pet/s, so they should be kept seperately. Once the baby has grown to full size, the Scorpion can be ridden by placing a Saddle on it.

As of the DEV v8.0.0 update, tamed Scorpions can now 'sit' like other tamed mobs when a Whip is used on them. Their health has also been increased from 18 to 40.

By feeding a tamed Scorpion an Essence of Darkness, a Scorpion Egg can be acquired. Placing this near a Torch will cause it to hatch within a couple of minutes, and it is necessary to stay near the egg in order to tame the hatched Scorpion (placing it requires standing approximately where the egg is wanted, then right-clicking). This will produce a baby Scorpion that must be named, just as if a Scorpion with babies on its back was killed.

Scorpions can be healed by feeding them Raw Rat or Cooked Rat. Scorpions don't take fall damage, whether or not they are being ridden. Tamed Scorpions will attack baby Bunnies and Elephants. They do not attack hostile mobs when being ridden.
