Various bizarrely-shaped machines that have taken different forms and functions to adapt to different goals.
Legend has it that they are war machines left behind by a nation that has already been destroyed. Compared to the more common Ruin Guards, their design has greater value in the study of biomimesis. Exactly why the form and movements of certain deep-sea lifeforms are being imitated is not known. But either way, tangling with them is hardly the best idea.

The Ruin Scout is a Ruin Sentinel in the Inazuma region.


The Ruin Scout resembles a jellyfish-looking Automaton.

Abilities and Attacks

Names are unofficial

  • Headbutt: Turning its body on the side, it charges up a lunge to headbutt its target, dealing Phyiscal DMG. Its core is exposed while charging but is protected while it lunges.
  • Tentacle Spin: The Scout spins its 4 tentacles dealing AoE Phyiscal DMG. Core is protected.
  • Orb Lay: The Scout quickly charges an energized orb and sets it right below itself. The orb deals Phyiscal DMG to players that come in contact and bursts after some time has passed or when walked into, dealing Phyiscal DMG over a small area. When two or more orbs are on the field, the orbs will make an energized beam that connects them, dealing Phyiscal DMG to players that come in contact. If one of the orbs burst, the beam connecting to it will disappear. During this whole attack its core is protected.
  • Discharge: Planting itself, the Scout charges up before discharging energy around itself, dealing Phyiscal DMG. Its core is protected during this attack.
  • Deactivated: After having its core hit twice while exposed, it will fall to the ground and deactivate. During this short time the Scout will not attack.



The easiest of the Ruin Sentinels as its main job is setting up traps and blockades to stop its targets. It can only do close-ranged attacks, meaning any bow user can take them out from afar. However, when two or more Ruin Scouts are together, they go from being an easy enemy to a moderate annoyance. As the two Scouts will now always form a connection with their Orb Lay attack, one of them can headbutt you and the other can charge up its Discharge attack. It should be noted that you must not stand on high constructs when fighting them as they will just lose focus of you and return to their spawn point.
