DevelopmentEdit

A fully functional mecha roach warren exists in the Galaxy Map Editor, which would allow Stetmann to spawn mecha roaches and mecha ravagers.

At the launch of Patch 4.9.0, Stetmann spawned four mecha roaches with longer timed life but lower stats. This was lowered to two in Patch 4.9.1.
