Description Keyvalues Flags Other Weapons


weapon_bugspawner is the entity name for a tool found in SMOD that can create an army of antlions.

Primary Fire: Throws a miniature antlion figure like a grenade, instantly creating a loyal drone wherever it lands. Up to 10 of these can follow the player at a time, and any others will stay put. Once the player's escort is less than 10, those extras can be told to follow with the Use key.

Secondary Fire: Same as above, but spawns an antlion guardian instead. These will never follow the player but will instead stay and guard the area.

The Use key can be used to call nearby antlions to the player.

While loyal antlion drones and guardians won't harm allies even if attacked, citizens and the like won't normally return the favor, shooting these antlions on sight.
