Kill-spawning is a griefer activity. It involves finding the spawn point for new players - where they re-enter the world after their avatar was killed - and sitting there with a big gun, killing them again the moment they emerge.

Kill-spawning is usually calculated to make the griefer feel better by inflicting as much harm on other people as possible ? and being killed every few seconds for minutes on end, with no way of stopping it, does indeed make an activity very unpleasant for someone.

Currently, we barely have two legged robots that can handle office buildings or race tracks, so these fantasies are still just fantasies. Robots deployed in war, to kill the enemy, that, is not a fantasy, and more are being produced every year.
