AI Overview[edit | edit source]
General[edit | edit source]
- Bots can be seen in Siege, Onslaught and Team Deathmatch training, their behaviours are unique in each gamemode.
- Bots can also use the Voice Guided System, although they are limited to "Hi", "Good luck!", "Oops!" "Sorry!" "That's too bad!" "You rock!" and "Awesome!".
- Bots' champions can not level up, as they will always be level 0.
- Bots will start choosing champions when all the players already locked in.
- Bots will always fill the missing class; e.g. if there's no Frontline, a bot will pick a Frontline champion.
- They can not have custom Cosmetic Items, as they will always use the default skin.
- Bots will only use their default talent and loadout.
- Bots will hunt down players that are low on health.
- Bots will use their defense abilities if they take more than 1500 dmg.
- Bots will get confused when players get the high ground.
- Bots will always jump when standing still. This is a way to confirm that the bot isn't stuck.
- Support bots will use their healing abilities when they are low on health, or when two or more allies are low on health.
- Bots will only notice you after they take 1000 damage.
Siege[edit | edit source]
At the start of the match, bots will wander around in their base, some may fire their weapons, and some may use the VGS.
After the round starts, the bots follow a pattern towards the point.
When they capture the point, bots will follow the payload until they reach the objective.
Bots that are defending will stay near the payload until the next round.
Onslaught[edit | edit source]
Bots will stay on the objective until they reach 400 points.
Flank bots tend to stay near their enemies bases if all of their allies are on point.
In this gamemode, all bots, except Frontlines, tend to hunt down players more often than other gamemodes, this is most likely to earn points.
Team Deathmatch[edit | edit source]
Bots will wander around the map trying to find the enemy team.
Example of Bots in Paladins.[edit | edit source]
Bugs and glitches[edit | edit source]
- Willo, Corvus and Drogoz bots may warp to random places when flying.
- Willo bots also tend to get stuck on walls with her Fae Flight, since she has no control with it.
- Bot Ash's Siege Shield has no cooldown. It isn't confirmed if it's intentional.
- Bot Jenos can use Through Time and Space while sliding. (This is patched)
- Bots may get stuck on their horses if they die from an Environmental Death with their horse.
- Bots also could use their ultimate while on their horse with this glitch.
- Terminus' bots can get infinite ultimates if they die while using their calamity blast.
- Bots can get stuck on certain paths, this is most likely the map's fault.
- When appearing outside of Training, Bomb King bots may often fail to detonate their bombs.
- Seris bots stand still when using her Shadow Travel.
- Inara bots don't have an animation when using her Seismic Crash.
- When using Exile, Atlas bots will only shoot once, they will always cancel their ultimate after they fire their first shot.

Bot Nicknames[edit | edit source]
Replacing a Disconnected Player with a Bot[edit | edit source]
If a Human Player loses connection or quits a match, a Bot will take control of said player, this solution is an attempt to avoid 4v5s and overall unfairness.
Identifying if a Bot Took over a Player in a Match[edit | edit source]
No Cosmetic Titles[edit | edit source]
When a bot takes over a player, their title will disappear, an important tip is to pay close attention to your allies titles. (If they have one)
Suddenly Saying "Hi" or "Good luck!" with the VGS in the Middle of a Match[edit | edit source]
If they are in the spawn room, Bots will say "Hi", and if they are out of the spawn room, Bots will say "Good luck!".
Going Middle to the Capture/Control Point[edit | edit source]
Bots will always "rush" to the point, no matter the role. Pay attention to your suspicious teammate if he's going to the middle.
Idling on the Capture Point[edit | edit source]
Bots stay on the point until they spot an enemy or until Victory.
The Player Didn't Connect to the Match[edit | edit source]
On the Loading Screen, every Loading Frame has a "crystal" on the bottom indicating if the player successfully connected to the match. If the crystal is still not glowing after everyone in the Match is ready, they could've disconnected.
No Talent and Loadout Selected[edit | edit source]
If a player couldn't connect to the match, they will have no Loadout equipped until they reconnect.
