The class AI behavior seems to work fine, but my experimentation with this class has revealed a problem quite similar to the remote droid. The remote weapon didn't show any visual effects in game as long as I didn't have bryar_pistol loaded beforehand. Now, the reborn_destroyer seems to explode, killing the player, but there's no explosion effect in game (that I could see on my system anyway). So, I think either some other effect must be loaded earlier or the effect for the class wasn't shipped with the game.
If somebody knows a solution, it would be nice to hear it...
