dustscoutsin dust bowls r very handy for the enemy doesn't know wtf is there.

you could also do this: an enemy assault comes close, you attack with the dustscouts and the retreat in the bowl again.

Aren't the little guys just wonderful? I love Dust Scouts, they're better than Scouts, cheap and fast to produce, can hide in times of trouble as long as a Dust Bowl is nearby...

And they make the SWEETEST little squeaking noises! :D

Hmm, does the guard mode work when they have cloaked themselfes? I was wondering, never test it...

You mean if an enemy unit is nearby will it attack? Not sure, I think the enemy needs to be almost on top of it before it stirs itself from the sand.

Gaurd does work. But there range is impaired by the edge of the dustbowl. so they have to be pretty close to the enemy unit.

Yes and what are you trying to say with this?

*Senses offtopic approach*

Anyways for the Dust scouts. I use the Dustbowl when the enemy is attacking with laser tanks or some other speedy unit that can damage the dust scout massively.

hiding scouts in dust bowls is a nasty thing 8)...

It is, isn't it? ;D

What else is good, is If you're playing on a level with dust bowls or not, it if you hit a crate with a Dust Scout and they turn camouflaged. They're small, so they can then sneak past the enemy and into the base instead of just hiding. Admittedly this doesn't happen very often, but it's useful when it does.

you should ask: what can a cloaked dustscout do to an enemy attack DAMAGE and he doesn't get killed if the enemy doesn't watch his troops.

Unless if the enemy has some missile tanks or Mongoose and other verhicles that can track or instant hit the enemy.

The Dustscout uncloaks. Missile tank turn's around and fires at the Dust scout. Missiles hit and boom goes the dust scout.

A cloaked dust scout is not so rare, the chance of invisibility in a crate is quite big, and a dust scout is quick, and you can use them often to seek for crates. But cloaked one are not so useful, because they hardly do damage to buildings.
