Genshin Impact just launched the new 3.1 patch update with the new Desert expansion of Sumeru. A new region means more local specialties and characters to ascend with them. Cyno, for example, is the new playable five-star character that needs Scarabs for his ascension. In this guide, we will tell you Scarab locations spread out all around the Desert region of Sumeru in Genshin Impact.
Scarabs are found in both the outside region of the Desert and in the underground parts of it. Just be warned that they indeed leave like every other creature in Genshin Impact once you are close to it. Fortunately, Scarabs take a much slower time in burying themselves underground so just be quick enough to catch them. Note: If the scarab buries itself underground, leave the area a few feet away and wait until it resurfaces again in the same spot.
