Scan was the first ability that Crypto learned in Destroy All Humans! Scan was the power to scan the brains of any nearby Humans and read their Thoughts. Crypto scanned humans or farm animals by reading their mind and listened to their thoughts. Of course, cows and chickens only went moo, or cluck cluck, and humans had very interesting and funny thoughts. Crypto could also scan the thoughts of Blisk Mutants and Blisk. Unfortunately, scanning was not in Big Willy Unleashed. In Path of the Furon, Crypto could use Scan while he used his Jetpack.
