The Minions in Attack of the B-Team allows you to have up to 4 minions do your bidding. They can carry things, mine, and chop forests. To get started you need to get to level 8 then hit the "z" key by default and choose an action to give in to the darkness. This will cost you 2 levels of experience. Once you've done that 4 times you'll get a Master's Staff that you can use to summon and order minions.
The following commands can be given:
Note: Most commands cost food and if you're too hungry they won't be given.
- Right click and hold for a second before releasing to order minions to follow.
- Right click a spot on the ground to order minions to move nearer to that space.
- Right click a tree and minions will start harvesting all trees in a large area.
