Finally got done working and got to play the demo. Not sure if this is a craftable object, but what about a slingshot of sorts? (If this is already an option and I haven't unlocked it my bad.)
Could even include different craftable ammo types: sticky/sap bombs to trap insects, shotgun/cone spray (for the annoying gnats in groups), distraction flares/bait, or pheromones to lure bugs to each other to battle or enrage. Could probably think of a few more, but wanted to get back into the demo.
Loving this game btw
