bot_npc_archeris a point entity available in Team Fortress 2.
This entity is NOT a bot. As such, it will not take any player slot.
It will go into humiliation pose unless one of the following entities is present on the map:
If at least one of those entities exists, the archer will shoot any BLU player which can be attacked. The NPC aims for heads and aims ahead in case a target is moving. When a BLU player is killed by a headshot from this entity, the kill feed will display an environmental headshot death icon. In the case of a bodyshot, a regular environmental death will be shown. Despite first appearances, this NPC is teamless, and can take and give damage to RED or BLU players. A similar teamless state has been seen with poor coding.
ent_create bot_npc_archercommand, this entity will try to go to the origin of the map, if a navigation mesh file is present. This is because the command causes the game to spawn the entity to the origin of the map, and then teleports it to where the player is looking (if possible).
