Many of the player models in u4e have their own built in weapons, and I think that would make many of them ideal monsters.
Take this guy:
When not carrying weapons, it shoots explosive fireballs. How cool is that?
Why has no one made monsters from these things?
U4e has a monster that is also a UT bot - Fred (in U4ePawns.u). Apart from that, the only ones I can think of now are the Grim Reaper (also an UnrealShare/UnrealI bot/player); Mr Big which has been 'converted' and can be found in Mutant.u (I think I'm right about Mr Big being the base for the Mutants - I haven't played with U4e bots for many years so my recollection may be a bit hazy on that - plus I don't use the dozen or so pawns in Mutant very much as their projectiles are mostly instant kill and so not a lot of fun if too many of them appear too frequently in MonsterSpawn); and, I think, the Thug (another UnrealShare/UnrealI player/bot).
Good question - no interest? not worthwhile given the effort that would/might be involved? Perhaps the U4e developers didn't encourage people to use/modify their 'stuff'?
For my own amusement (exclusively off-line), I have used a few as weapon-carrying ScriptedPawns by swapping the mesh, etc.
