Description[]

The Scout 800 is a very small yet dependable vehicle that lives up to its title as a scout extremely well.

The Scout 800 has the advantage of having an always-on differential lock and switchable AWD making it perform in mud better than the CK1500. It also can be found for free early on making it a good Scout for new players.

The Scout 800 does however struggle a bit in deep mud with stock suspension and tires but with a suspension lift and all terrain or mud tires it is able to tackle almost any obstacle it faces. Though not fast it possesses enough power to get through rough terrain but it struggles when towing. The Scout 800s suspension is extremely stiff which often causes the vehicle to bounce in rough terrain which can lead to it falling on its side if driven by a careless player. Due to its high profile and relatively thin build it is very prone to falling over. a autonomous winch is a must have when using this vehicle. due to its tippy behavior it is better to keep it in alaska as it is less hilly and more centered around just tackling mud

  • In the Scout 800's store image and in the SnowRunner reveal trailer, it is equipped with an entirely different paint scheme than what it has in game.
