You can find Scout Striders on the Automatons side of the map. Since they are robots you won’t find them on planets that are infested with bugs. Also, make sure you are playing on at least Medium difficulty or higher in order to encounter them.

However, unlike AT-ST, the Scout Striders have their backs open where you can find a Robot controlling the legs and the guns of the machine.

Now, just knowing the weakness of the Robots in the back isn’t enough. These walkers have bulletproof armor so just shooting them head-on won’t do the trick. Here is how you can defeat them:

The best way to kill a Scout Strider is to get behind it and destroy the Robot Pilot. As explained above, they have bulletproof armor, so forward attacks are pretty much meaningless. There is always an option to blow them up. However, if you are playing in a party, then you can ask one person to bait it while the others shoot at its back.
