Legend has it that they were war machines left behind by a nation that has now been destroyed. Leaving its hard armor and powerful abilities aside, some believe that the design of these ruin machines has greater value in the study of biomimesis than the more common Ruin Guards.

Yashiori Island Guide
Ruin Scouts and other Ruin Sentinels can be found mostly in the northern part of Watatsumi Island.
Ruin Scouts and other Ruin Sentinels can be found either in their resting state or patrolling areas in various parts of Seirai Island.
The best place to find groups of Ruin Scouts and other Ruin Sentinels would be in the underground ruins of Amakumo Peak.
Ruin Scouts and other Ruin Sentinels in Tsurumi Island are often found underground underneath Shirikoro Peak and Chirai Shrine.
Ruin Sentinels are usually grouped in twos or more, making it harder to dodge all their attacks. Having a shield would make defeating these monsters easier, although it is not as necessary when facing a lone Ruin Sentinel.
Hitting its weakpoint will also knock it down for some time, making it vulnerable.
Ruin Scouts will turn its body horizontally until the top of its head is pointing towards you. It will pause for a few seconds during which you can dodge just before it charges at your character.
Ruin Scouts also has an attack characterized by spinning its body, dealing damage within a small AoE.
They also attack by compressing their bodies and leaving small golden balls of energy that deals damage when touched. When more than two of these balls of energy are present, they will connect with each other and deal damage to your character if you pass by the connection.
It's best to avoid these attacks by keeping your distance.
