Becoming the King of Scorpions!
The Scorpion king cycles between two different phases: The minigun strafe phase and the burrow phase.
In the first phase the trick is to deal as much damage as possible to the King Scorpion while staying between his streams of bullets. When you want to escape the stream of bullets use your hammer to deflect the bullets and escape safely. The acid he fires at the end of a strafe attack cannot be deflected in any way, and must be avoided at all costs.
In the second phase. King Scorpion will dig a hole and go underground, following you around, and if it manages to position itself directly under you, he will use his tail to impale the player and deal damage. Additionally, during this phase, a horde of Antaresian Spiders will reinforce the Scorpion King and attack you.
To handle the second phase, it's best not to run run in a straight line from the boss but run in circles around him - use the hammer spin and an automatic rifle to deal with the spiders.
