Guardian Scout I
"Guardians were originally designed by an ancient civilization to combat Ganon, but these smaller models were placed inside shrines as part of the trials found within. The multiple legs and beam functionality were scaled down but kept mostly intact."
The Guardian Scout I is an enemy that appears in Breath of the Wild. It is the most basic of the four types of scouts found in the game and it can be found exclusively within the Shrine of Trials. Link will encounter these initial Guardian Scouts when exploring the Oman Au Shrine and the Keh Namut Shrine, both located on the Great Plateau.
The Guardian Scouts looks, moves, and attack almost identically to a Guardian Stalker, except on a significantly smaller scale. It has only four legs and its laser attack is not nearly as devastating. Unlike the higher level Guardian Scouts, this basic model does not wield any weapons or shields, making it significantly easier to fight. Link can fight off a Guardian Scout with virtually any type of melee weapon or with a bow. Additionally, if Link allows the Scout to attack with its laser, Link can perform a Perfect Guard to reflect the attack back at the scout.
In Master Mode, all of the Guardian Scout I enemies that are found within the Shrine of Trials are replaced with Guardian Scout II enemies. However, the Scouts that are within the Divine Beasts are still their Level 1 versions.
