The Scourge is armed with 3 Huge/Large(?) Cannons, and 8(?) Custom Cannon Turrets. It is not that powerful on its own; it cannot fire its turrets directly ahead because of a bad mounting angle. This is the assumed reason for its secondary spinal weapons.
The Scourge has a huge blind spot behind it. By exploiting this blind spot, some players have been able to solo it with nothing but a Frigate or Destroyer (like an Aura) Doing so allows players to solo these ships and keep their loot to themselves.
As with Alien Servs and Punishers, distractions with small, fast ships like the Viper and Draco are effective ways to draw this ship's fire while pest-controller ships with high-accuracy turrets deal all the damage.
It is relatively easy to brute force the kill with any ship, as there is a blind spot directly behind it where it cannot shoot you.
