It also attempts to discover the vendor by the MAC address, which can be very helpful in finding vulnerabilities to exploit.

Next is a screenshot with netdiscover tool running in my lab:

This is a tcpdump command of ARP requests that are being sent out by the netdiscover tool to discover these live IP addresses:

The tcpdump shows how netdiscover does an ARP request for all the hosts in the network range and in this case Based on the replies, you can see what is alive currently on the network.
