Are you looking for the Scavenger Achievement or Scavenger (lore)?


Scavengers are hound-like burrowing creatures who fight with ferocity and are quick to attack. A Scavenger is a beast-type monster.

These creatures often burrow in an open area and wait for a pray to pass within short distance, then the entire pack will burst out of the soil and attack their potential meal.

Trivia[edit]

The famous Abd al-Hazir had an "extremely distressing episode" during his youth involving Scavengers. He never got around to tell anyone what this was before he disappeared shortly after writing his 42nd entry about Sanctuary in article series called Writings of Abd al-Hazir.


Development[edit]

This iteration of Scavengers was first sighted in the WWI 2008 gameplay movie


Diablo I Monster[edit]

The Diablo I Scavenger is a demonic version of the regular one described here. Corrupted by Diablo himself, this variant of the carrion race is even more aggressive, and can be driven mad with the scent of death.


Diablo II Monster[edit]

The Diablo II Leapers found in the Aranoch desert are apparently genetically related to the Scavengers, but not of the exact same race. They have evolved even stronger bone muscles for leap attacks, don't burrow and have evolved an extremely slow resting metabolism to minimize water use and storage, but are otherwise quite like the burrowers. They still attack in packs, but use leaping attacks rather than an surprise attack from below.
