How do bots see the game
are there any photos how the bots see the map? do they see the map? or is it all code processing?

they are the game
im guessing they are programmed to follow the players and are able to sense where any infected are.

Based on their behavior I think they have to interpret what's on the screen, meaning they see, it is easily proven with hunter (that makes no noise), and they do not notice unless they random look at you.

Same thing with pills and weapons, sometimes they have to randomly look to be able to pick.

they're just lines of codes that try to simulate a player behavior ... even if they technically would know where every single mobs is they're just restricted to look to be aware of what is in front of them.

it does not explain how one common coming from behind can punch a bot once before they notice it
If it were only so, the bots do not need to "assume" the lag of the player who quit (in which gradually reduces), this influence proves to me they really need to interpret what is on the screen.

The bots should play like a player. The more you friendly fire them, the slower they will save, help or heal you. lol.

The more you save and help them, the faster they will be for you. lol.

bots don't see , they just follow behavior patterns and condition , an enemy comming from behind just does not trigger the bots agressive condition untill he hit him ... the only way to prove otherwise would be to reverse-engineer their codes.

The survivor bots have some sort of vision system that checks line-of-sight, possibly based on which areas of the navigation mesh they and the infected are in. IIRC they also have simuated hearing, the common infected do at least.
