The Scout is one of the four playable dwarves of Deep Rock Galactic.

Her[1] primary weapon set consists of the Deepcore GK2, the M1000 Classic, and the DRAK-25 Plasma Carbine while her secondaries consist of the Jury-Rigged Boomstick, the Zhukov NUK17s, and the Nishanka Boltshark X-80. She has the Grappling Hook, the Hoverboard, the Flare Gun, and the "Fox" Armor Rig as her equipment and the Inhibitor-Field Generator, the Cryo Grenade, the Pheromone Canister, and the Voltaic Stun Sweeper as her throwables.


As the SCOUT, you are the only one to carry the powerful FLARE GUN, and the entire team depends on you for light. To scout ahead, you are also equipped with a GRAPPLING HOOK or HOVERBOARD, letting you get to almost anywhere. But, while you are carrying an ASSAULT RIFLE and a SAWED OFF SHOTGUN, you should still be careful not to get cut off from your team - the caves don't take kindly to lone explorers.
— Class Description

The Scout boasts the fastest mobility in the game due to her reusable Grappling Hook and Hoverboard, and is the only class who wields a unique Flare Gun that can be used to light up much larger areas than normal Flares (though she still retains the ability to toss normal flares like the other dwarves). The main purpose of the scout is to die from driller's satchel charges or cave leeches far away from the other players.

The Scout can choose from four different types of grenades: The Inhibitor-Field Generator (IFG) which slows enemies down and increases their damage taken, the Cryo Grenade which applies freeze and can potentially freeze most enemies instantly, the Pheromone Canister which covers enemies in pheromones, turning them into targets for other enemies to attack, and the Voltaic Stun Sweeper which attacks enemies up to 9 times, stunning them and applying electrocution.


All classes have twelve pieces of gear, each of which can be individually upgraded using Credit Credits and crafting resources. There are currently four unlockable weapons per class. Each weapon has its own assignment. Once a weapon assignment has been completed, that weapon can then be purchased from the upgrade terminal.

  • Before Update 24: Explosive Expansion, the Scout was the only class to carry a unique grenade, the IFG. All the other dwarves carried simple frag grenades.
  • The internal name for the Scout used to be "Navigator".
  • The Scout has the highest pitched voice of the dwarves.
  • Although none of the dwarves refer to each other with 3rd person pronouns, the devs have directly confirmed that the Scout is female.
  • The Scout makes a cameo appearance in episode 2,338 of Skibidi Toilet, where she appears as “Skibidi Scout” and uses the Grappling Hook to evade the opposing Skibidi Toilets. As part of the crossover, a “Skibidi!” voiceline was added upon using the Grappling Hook.
  • Despite many Driller mains saying it's just a thing leaf-lovers do, and that only a low percentage of them C4 scouts, there has been a connection between dead Scouts and Driller mains, the higher the Driller mains the more dead Scouts.
  • Scout is the only class to have 3 support tools.
