Note: Wait! Stop! Before you copy this actor's definition into your mod, remember the following things:
  1. You do not need to copy that actor, since it is already defined.
  2. In fact, it's not just useless, it's actually harmful as it can cause problems.
  3. If you want to modify it, or use a modified version, using inheritance is the way to go.
  4. The actor definitions here are put on the wiki for reference purpose only. Learn from them, don't copy them.
  5. There is only one exception: if what you want is changing Ammo capacity, you need to create a new type from Ammo.

Classes: RevenantTracer


The seeking missile fired by a Revenant. Whether it actually homes in on the Revenant's target or not is random (it's about 50% chance, but check A_Tracer for exact numbers), this behavior is caused by the way A_Tracer was written.

From their sprite names, it could be inferred they were originally planned to be the Mancubus' missiles.
