Adding robots while in-game
This is a short wiki detailing how to add robots to a server while in-game. Because bots are included within the default Bitfighter package, bots can be added to personal servers or even while testing a level, if so desired.
- /addbot :: Adds 1 bot. It typically joins the team with less players.
- /addbots # :: Adds multiple bots, you'll have to specify the amount. There does not appear to be a maximum amount, but beware that adding 9000 bots may result in a server crash. Thus, some servers have capped this amount at 10 bots.
- /addbots # s_bot :: s_bot is the default bot, so this command is worthless. However, it's good for understanding commands.
- /addbots # s_bot team :: You can choose to add bots by teams using this command. Type the team name or number (hint: team numbers begin at 0).
Try replacing s_bot with Eliza or orbitbot for a fun surprise!
- /kickbot :: Kicks 1 bot.
- /kickbots :: Kicks all bots.
- s_bot :: The default bot. [Credit: Sam686]
- Eliza :: Interactive chat bot.
- orbitbot :: Orbits around TestItems.
- projectileshooter (also known as AegisBot) :: Shoots at Bursts, Seekers, and Mines.
- retrievebot.bot :: gets the nearest flag and returns to nearest goal. Only works in Retrieve games.

- Play the map Feudalism solo, with 10 s_bots (6v5). Be on the Invaders team. You may find that victory is more difficult to come by than it would appear...
- Play the map hour_glass solo, with 3 s_bots (1v3). You vs them. Try to score 1 point before they score all 10!
Just for fun
- Add orbitbots en masse to a TestItem-heavy map and watch as they circle TestItems desperately!
- Or, go head-to-head with 20v20 s_bots on some classic and simple CTF maps!
