Scaffolding tubes are long metal pipes that are used as construction material. When picked up, they cannot be used as a melee weapon, like the Sledgehammer. Instead, they can only be thrown, but don't deal any damage.
Their only purpose is for throwing onto Ugh-Zan IV's back. Occasionally during the fight, Ugh-Zan will taunt and fight the Sandwhale. This creates an opening for the player to impale the tubes into Ugh-Zan's back. Randomly, if he has had poles thrown into him, he will be struck by lightning since the tubes conduct electricity. This will severely deplete Ugh-Zan's health, as well as prevent him from regenerating health. The more tubes there are on his back, the more damage he will take. Sam can throw up to 5 tubes onto his back.
Scaffold tubes only appear once in the game, at the end of The Guardian of Time during the boss fight with Ugh-Zan IV.
