Pit Drone (D20 Modern Creature)

Pit Drones prefer to use their ranged spikes to weaken opponents before rushing in to attack as a pack. They use their superior numbers to their advantage to flank, surprise, and outmaneuver their opponents. A Pit Drone can run out of spikes to shoot. Each Pit Drone originally has 8 spikes. They regenerate these spikes at 2 per hour.
Pack Minded (Ex) Pit Drones are mentally connected to all other Pit Drones within line of sight. If one Pit Drone is aware of a particular danger, they all are. If one in a group is not flat-footed, none of them are. No Pit Drone is considered flanked unless all of them are. This ability only functions for Pit Drones in line of sight of one or more other Pit Drones.
Spike Volley (Ex) A Pit Drone can forcefully eject 2 or more of it's spikes at a time at the sacrifice of it's accuracy. For every extra spike that is shot, the attack bonus of the attack is decreased by 1. A Pit Drone can eject no more than 6 of these spikes at a time using this ability.
