Boss Escape Point
Thing type 290, Boss Escape Point, is a type of Thing placed inside a map (or outside the boundaries) that a boss flies to when defeated. Multiple escape points can be placed in the same map. When defeated, the boss will fly to whichever point is closest to it at the time the boss is destroyed. In the absence of an escape point, the boss will just fly directly upwards towards the ceiling.
Note that, of the actual bosses included in SRB2, Brak Eggman and Brak Eggman (Old) are the only ones that do not fly to a Boss Escape Point when defeated. Additionally, flying to a Boss Escape Point is not exclusive to Objects with
MF_BOSS; any type of Object that uses
A_BossDeath will default to using the behavior described above, with exceptions to both versions of Brak Eggman, King Bowser, and any Object type using the Lua hook "BossDeath".
