Dumb question about Blaze's mod; how do you actually use blob weapons?

I ‘reload’ them with what they need, but it doesn’t work. The spitter took one blob feed, and still says it needs to be reloaded. Same with the shooter, though they’re the only ones I tried out. What’s the issue here? Thanks.

Also, what else do you need to get a blob vehicle to work? I feel like the answer is very obvious, but I have the feeder and wheels installed, as well as the seat and harness, but I’m not sure what else it takes.

Blob turrets are vehicle only yes.

What else to get the actual blob vehicle to work? Do you need something other than the blob core? It says it wants an engine.
