Black Ops Cold War: How To Host A Bot Lobby

+ 2

In recent instalments of Call of Duty, players can add bots into matches to practice their skills and have a more chilled out time.


It's also a great way to introduce new players to the game without the hassle of jumping online.

This function has returned in Black Ops Cold War and couldn't be easier to set up!

Here's how to host a bot lobby in Black Ops Cold War.

How To Host A Bot Lobby In Black Ops Cold War

From the main menu screen, you'll want to enter the multiplayer section of Black Ops Cold War.

Once you're in multiplayer, you'll find yourself on the 'Lobby' tab, scroll down to the 'Vs Bots' option.

BOT LOBBIES: Click 'VS Bots' or 'Custom Games'

From here, you'll be able to quickly set up a multiplayer match against bots.


However, you are limited to just three modes: Team Deathmatch, Free-For-All and Domination.

You're also limited to just 7 maps, but you can customise the bot difficulty.

If you want more options, go to the 'Custom Games' section.

From here, scroll down to the 'Bots and Players' section.

Then click 'Add Bot' to add a bot - do this repeatedly to add multiple bots.

If you find you have too many bots, you can remove them by pressing 'Remove Bot' as many times as you need.

In here, you'll have customisation of all maps and modes to set up games the way you want.

You can also implement Bot fill options, so that if a player connects a bot will be removed to make way and if that player leaves, a bot will take their place.
