I need this for something. Pretty easy to add I'm sure.

I think it exists actually, but it's a cool idea anyways.
Sorry because my English is not very good because I'm Spanish ;) :P

You can follow spawns, but you can't follow projectiles. Like, if a character fires a projectile, that projectile isn't going to be followed if you tell it to follow the spawn. That command does not exist.

this could be useful, but what if projectiles were being fired really fast?

That's a good point. But it'd probably just follow the first one. And in my case, I want to disable the player.
