The bombardier beetle (Brachinus alternans) is well armoured, but it has a deadlier defence - by mixing chemicals in a special chamber, it can spray liquid at temperatures close to that of boiling water. This is extremely dangerous to small creatures, like fire ants.

Expect them in Empires of the Undergrowth's upcoming fourth tier!

Those little beady eyes and that BOILING spray will make it an creature that won't be easy to beat. Great modeling and art!

EDIT: Just seeing the picture of the fire ant stinging looked great, good work!!!!

Sounds great! Matt will impress us.

EDIT: Following pakitane16, where was this heard, can you tell me where and when the developers told this?
It's not prototype then. It's called skin variant and this is the basic skin.
Anyway, where did you hear that there will be different skin for this beetle?
Well they didn’t tell me this I just guessed that they would because of the rove beetle variants. I got excited that’s all.

As a kid I heard of this beatle. If I remember correctly they store both chemicals in their body and have a catalyst chamber to mix them and squirt them at their enemies. I don't remember if they also made a banging noise which their name would be coming from. It's very interesting to see these now inside of the game. :D
