Stinger Notes and Tips

  • The name 'Stinger' is a reference to the fact that scorpions have stingers. That the weapon has a chance to poison enemies alludes to the scorpion's venomous capabilities.
  • (1.04) Placing Scorpion's figure in V's apartment will make Stinger disappear if it's in your inventory. Put the weapon in your storage if you want to place Scorpion's action figure.

      An Iconic Knife meant specifically for a stealth knife play through but Knives cant be picked up off dead bodies! You throw it once and its gone for ever!

        Legendary/icon but looks identical to all the other knives in the game :(

        Although it looks blue in the crafting menu, in your inventory it's still the same single knife model they use. shame.

          the note about the LOTR tie in seems like a ridiculous reach. It belonged to a guy named scorpion. Scorpions have stingers. Most creatures with stingers use them to inject venom. Literally the only tie between the quest and the LOTR scene mentioned is the word fly.
