Antlion Thumper Spawning

Is there a way that I can spawn a antlion thumper with a weapon? I’ve tryed downloading the ones on and then moding the npc spawning weapons, but resulted in failure. Anyone know how?

Also is there a way to change the model of the antlion thumper ( without replacing ) but in lua? If anyone has any ideas, or knows how to do either one of these 2 questions, let me know.

Im a noob, but the first thing that struck me was ent:SetModel()
I have no idea if it will work, but you could try it

Entity:SetModel( “model” )

Edit: Never mind, I was thinking the thumper was some sort of NPC…
