The Prince gains this sword after the Lion Sword is broken. Just like the Lion Sword, it is capable of delivering "charged" attacks. This is the sword with which the Prince fights Kaileena for the second time.
The Prince fights with the Scorpion Sword during his duration the Sand Wraith. Unless all life upgrades are unlocked before the Prince's second last foray into the Throne Room, where, in that case, the Water Sword will be awaiting him, before he becomes the Sand wraith.
In the Prince's first attempt to take the Scorpion Sword, in the present, the Dahaka appears, knocking the blade off a ledge and out of reach and proceeds to chase the Prince into a portal. The Prince then goes to the past and recovers the sword after which a small army of Keepers arrive, followed by the Thrall.
- If the Prince backtracks after losing the Dahaka, the Scorpion Sword will still be located on its pedestal where first found. It cannot be interacted with, however, and he still must travel to the past to acquire it.
