Improved Bots (Simple)

This addon makes several changes to bots to make them act more like human players and make them more reliable as teammates. They can use melee weapons, rescue you if you die, react quicker to a teammate being attacked by a special infected and much more.

NOTE: While this addon does improve the bots, it doesn't make them perfect. There is no way for me to fix every issue with the bots, but I have improved them in the areas that are possible. I realize they still aren't ideal teammates.

• Bots can use melee weapons.
• Bots will continue to play after you have died instead of ending the game.
• Bots will react much faster to a player being attacked by a special zombie.
• Bots can perform some simple actions, such as closing safe room doors.
• Bots will move around a player instead of shooting through them.
• Bots are much more likely to save their first aid kits for a player.
• Bots will try to stay in a tighter group with the player.

• Works for all official game modes.
• This addon doesn't block Steam achievements.
• This version of the addon is ideal for single player, multiplayer with bots or servers.

Thank you!. I started looking for mods like this when a smoker strangled me and the bots won't react.

The bots don't pick up melee weapons anymore

Um... Coach tried to use first aid on me after a Charger knocked me into a fire and incapped me. I wound up dying because I couldn't move and he kept trying to do it...

No, I can't do anything like that.

Something I would LOVE, can you make it so if a bot is not holding first aid, it will pick up a defib, and revive a dead teammate?

Is it my imagination but it seems to improve Zombies aswell

big improvement on the bots yes they do close safe room doors
Hunter Killer Jan 21 @ 1:25am 
I waited even minutes but they don't even close it.

You have to wait for a few seconds with everyone inside the safe room for them to close the door. I like to use that time to heal up and grab ammo for the next map.
