You start out with a lot of resources.  Regardless, it certainly doesn’t hurt to grab the supply crates around the base.

You’ve probably already noticed this, but the Scarab’s head is already in function and omits a big white laserbeam that you should avoid at all costs.  The usage of quick units will come in handy, so get an army of Warthogs ready and give them the Gauss Cannon upgrade.

Continuously keep creating Warthogs:  These are ideal to send out in squad of 4-5 and destroy the Power Nodes that power the Scarab’s Head.  The more you destroy, the slower the head will move.  Keep the queue for Warthogs on at all times;  By the time your squad gets destroyed you can move on with the next from the base.

You don’t have all that much time, so you’ll want to take out the Power Nodes quickly.  With those out of the way, move all of your troops and vehicles over to - say, the left side of the Scarab and have one Warthog move left and right through the beam to distract it and keep it on the right side so your troops can keep firing at it.

To find the [BLACK BOX #7] in this level, search one of the eastern alcoves on the map.  The Box is located nearby resources.

The Skull is found after killing 10 Locusts (who are damn annoying, mind you), and searching the area to the northwest, nearby one of the Power Nodes.

The Scarab is an incredible opponent, but with this trick it won’t even stand a chance. Possibly the most useful trick for this mission!
