Another species that will be tussling with fire ants in Empire of the Undergrowth's 4th tier is the big-headed ant (Pheidole morrisii).

Like many species, it has minor and major castes, but it also has a category of major often called "supersoldier" in literature. This beast has a huge head giving it a wicked bite.


The head powers huge bite force much like a leafcutter major, but in a much more awkwardly-proportioned form.

The head is very big in comparison to the body (hence the name), so although the bite is formidable the supersoldiers do tend to be a little on the clumsy side!

I think only the ants that are obtainable in the main story are given queens. The exception to this rule would be ones that you encounter in missions, such as the upcoming "Little Black Ants". Speaking of which, I have found a way to use those in an Ereptor colony the same way I did with Fire Ants. Won't say anything else, however.

Oh cmon!!! Why'd you have to say you got little black ants in an ereptor colony like you did with the fire ants?! The urge of asking you how you got them into the game is getting... Stronger......

He has a tutorial on save editing on Steam, however it is more then likely going to corrupt your save if done wrong.

Yea, and the process is really hard. I haven't even made a guide for the more advanced methods, such as the one I used to get Army Ants and Fire Ants. So, it's not going to be easy. Especially since you'll need to make a backup.

I think this topic should end here guys. With how Mike not knowing about the peripheral species' abilities, you will most likely find only their models and basic moving animation, which were already shown.
If you want to try getting yout ultimate ereptor, you can follow TheRexYo's guide on steam, with the risk of breaking your game.
