How to Spawn Bots

You can spawn bots by opening your console (ctrl + alt + tilda) and running the command addbot [survivor name OR survivor index] [amount] or addrandombot [amount]. All arguements are optional and have a default value if they are not given. Example: addbot engineer 5 will spawn 5 engineers that follow you.

If you have friends in your lobby that you want to spawn bots for, add their slot number in the lobby after the rest of the arguements. Example: addbot engineer 5 3 will spawn 5 engineers for the 3rd player in the lobby.

Alternatively, you can set the amount of bots spawned at the beginning of a run in the config. These bots will default to having the host as their master.

Other Console Commands

pb_startingbots [survivor name OR survivor index] [amount] - Changes the amount of bots spawned at the beginning of a run.

pb_startingbots_random [amount] - Changes the amount of random bots spawned at the beginning of a run.

pb_startingbots_reset - Resets the amount of all bots that spawn at the beginning of a run to 0.

pb_listsurvivors - Lists all the loaded survivors and their index numbers, useful for adding bots

removebots - Removes all bots from the run

killbots - Kills all the bots currently in the run. They will respawn in the next stage.

tpbots - Teleports all the bots to your position
