The Army Ant is a scrapped enemy for Duke Nukem Forever.


The Army Ant is a soldier mutated to look like a bipedal ant.

This enemy appeared in the 1998 trailer. In it, a few variants of it can be seen. The first one is red colored and can be seen wielding a gun and using melee attacks. The second one behaves the same as the first one, but has a Predator-like cloaking system. The final variant is a large, grey colored version that can be seen chasing the player while they’re on a truck.


The Army Ant appears to have been completely scrapped by 2001, as there are no traces of it in the E3 2001 trailer.


  • While the Army Ant was revealed in 1998, its name wasn’t known until concept art for it was released in 2011 on the Duke Nukem Forever website.
