Fortnite Chapter 2 has been praised for its improvements, although one thing that has the Fortnite players a bit confused is whether bots are present. Back in September, Epic Games touched upon plans to add bots to Fortnite, though less has been discussed that Fortnite Chapter 2 is live. To clear everything up, we have put together a quick feature addressing whether there are bots in Fortnite Chapter 2.
Yes, there are bots in Fortnite Chapter 2. As explained above, Epic Games lure the introduction of bots back in September prior to the launch of Fortnite Chapter 2. With Fortnite Chapter 2 available now, you are going to notice the bot system teased in September has been fully integrated into the game. Lots of Fortnite players have been quick to spot those bots while exploring the new map in Fortnite Chapter 2.
The bots in Fortnite Chapter 2 are far from intelligent, though they are great if you are looking to rack up a few easy kills. But, it is best not to get complacent as you are going to encounter plenty of real players in Fortnite Chapter 2. As for why bots are present now in Fortnite Chapter 2, it seems like Epic Games wants to make Fortnite easier for the new players. As your level increases in Fortnite Chapter 2, you are going to spot fewer and fewer bots.
Epic Games said that in the next Season, they are adding bots to Fortnite. The bots are going to behave similarly to normal players and will help provide a better path for the players to grow in skill. The bots are going to work in conjunction with the new matchmaking system, and as your skill improves, you are going to face fewer bots. Bots will not be present in Competitive playlists. This is another system that Epic Games will continue to update and iterate. After Epic Games announced that, the Fortnite players had questions about the new bots. For your information, bots will not be in Competitive games. Also, the bots will not be in Creative mode. Aside from that, you also can not party up with the bots.
The Developers said that bots cannot use vehicles and cannot do 90s. But long term they are looking to see how far they are able to push their bots. If you have played any games so far, you may have noticed that the bots are not good at picking fights, either. We get information that there is a Reddit user uploaded a video of themselves finding a bot who saw the user, and proceeded to farm materials rather than shoot their weapon.
Apparently, bots are being paired with skill-based matchmaking in Fortnite Chapter 2. Not only will you encounter fewer bots as your level increases, you will also encounter the players closer to your skill level. If you are looking to play without bots, you may still remember that bots will not be present in Competitive playlists.
