A question for the enlightened few.

Are there bots that for example only use blue style or yellow etc?

And do they have different skill levels?

All the bots Ive tried out seem to use Red stance.

The reason I ask is because in Perfect Dark the bots were very different and had very different tactics indeed. Is it possible to make a Bot that is a little harder to beat or better still virtually impossible to beat?

Any ideas or views welcome...

Peace to you all

Jah

those bots in perfect dark kicked ass...some of my favs, next to the Unreal Tournament ones. I find that the JO bots tend to use whatever saber style you are using. However i have noticed that they use red a lot.

that seems to be the case usually, but I occasionally find them switching stances to like blue or yellow when they want to rush me.

never works though, roll away!

I've noticed Light sided bots (Lando, Kyle, Luke) tend to die more often against Dark sided bots, and seem to yield easier kills than Dark side bots.

Dark side bots such as Desann, Tavion, and Reborn usually use Heavy, and Light sided bots like to use medium/light.

I'm not sure if this is consistent with everyone else's games, but lando does die alot more often to tavion... I suppose it's Heavy v Light advantage.


PS This is regarding NF bot games

I've noticed that in FF games, light-side bots never use absorb. They must be pretty stupid. ;)

Do any of your bots pick up weapons because it seems all the ones that aren't using lightsabers seem to shoot me with their pistol.

One thing this game needs is a fan made bot such as Quake 2's Eraser bot or Quake 3's Laker bot.
Hopefully someone will do one soon, those were good to practice against.

Like a bot that's really good at sniping so you can learn how to avoid them. It's kind of weird that Raven made the bots so stupid, it's not much practice for actual games. Or a challenge for those without a fast enough modem for FFA.

If you want to practice avoiding sniper fire, play the Nar Shaddaa levels again. ;)

They should have made the saber able to block the sniper fire.

I meant in SP. It already does in MP.
