Unlike all the other ranged weapons, the slingshot does not show a target to any befriended companion you may have. It causes befriended mobs to react strangely to slingshot attacks.
Steps to Reproduce
- Befriend an NPC mob, for example a bunnyman
- Attack with your slingshot another mob they would normally not be aggressive to, for example a beefalo
- The beefalo will be aggroed towards you, but the bunnyman will not do anything unless you get hit.
- Do the same with any other ranged weapon, and the bunnyman will be aggroed instantly towards the target mob.
