So, for anyone that's interested the ArmyOfOz buddies, marine replacements are pretty much complete.
Screenies spoilered for sanity
spawned in these guys to help me on lost civilization
everyone but the LMG guys got chewed up by knife guys and some mounted guns
summoned more dudes to help again
which got mowed down by more mounted guns
so, I sent in some badass PMC contractors who took care of business
then these pricks turned up and I died about a second after taking the shot.
army of untrained rebels to the rescue
take that. also got some drones flying around
sent in some better guys to deal with a mg jeep
remembered something about the level only eday maps.
-they have absolute zero AI so function like regular monsters but do unique damage so they can shoot enemies and not hurt each other.
-they are also not friendly as standard so you can use them as extra enemies on obilge/obsidian maps. So you need to summon them with the summonfriend command if you want allies.
-also friendly fire is a thing so you can shoot them and they can catch you in a crossfire
