Scatter Bombus are energy-based creatures found on Tallon IV, used by the Space Pirates for patrolling in various corridors of Phendrana Drifts and in the Phazon Mines. They are similar to the Luminoth-built Diligence Class Drone. Scatter Bombus attack by releasing rotating streams of electricity that Samus can easily dodge with the Morph Ball. At close range, Scatter Bombus disrupt Samus's Visor. Samus can only defeat them with the Wave Beam or Wavebuster.[1]
