Random weapon or item spawns

Post by DELTAtheDboi005 »

Hey, just wondering:

How do you make random weapon or item spawns?

Say for example:
There's a shotgun with two fire modes, One is pellets, The other is slugs. And they are separate ammo types.

Or a chaingun with two variants, one is like an automatic grenade launcher, the other is just your standard chaingun.

I can never wrap my head around it, I've seen it in other mods, But have never done it myself. How does work exactly?.

Just curious. :?:

Random spawning is usually done by utilizing the [wiki=Classes:RandomSpawner]RandomSpawner[/wiki] actor class.
