Due to their lack of effective armaments they often rely on numbers and attrition to win battles. In an environment where life on the whole is cheap for a normal hive denizen, it is many times worse of your average scavvy. In lean times a particularly luckless scavvy may find himself the main course for the rest of the gang, due to their cannibalistic nature. Rival gang members captured by the Scavvies also tend to share this grizzly fate.
Gangs of cannibalistic mutants who carve out small kingdoms in the Underhive with the use of scalies, plague zombies, ghouls and Giant rats as well as 'normal' Scavvies and 'mutant' scavvies. All Scavvies are mutants, and the only real thing that differentiates between 'normal' and 'mutant' Scavvies is that the mutations that mutant Scavvies possess are often beneficial in some way. Often utilizing only the most basic of weapons, Autoguns and Shotguns can be considered the pinnacle of Scavvie weaponry.
