Note: Wait! Stop! Before you copy this actor's definition into your mod, remember the following things:
  1. You do not need to copy that actor, since it is already defined.
  2. In fact, it's not just useless, it's actually harmful as it can cause problems.
  3. If you want to modify it, or use a modified version, using inheritance is the way to go.
  4. The actor definitions here are put on the wiki for reference purpose only. Learn from them, don't copy them.
  5. There is only one exception: if what you want is changing Ammo capacity, you need to create a new type from Ammo.

Classes: InventoryPowerupGiverBlurSphere

This is the invisibility sphere powerup from Doom and Doom 2. When picked up, it causes the player to appear translucent (or fuzzy, depending on the user's settings) to other players, making him difficult to see. Enemies which have not yet woken may fail to see a player with this powerup active, and enemies that are firing on the player will miss by a random amount. While this powerup is in effect, the player's weapons will appear translucent/fuzzy on the HUD.
