A PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS bot cheated as it shot through a wall to kill a player inside a church to further illustrate the community’s frustration with bots.
PUBG bots were added to eliminate or reduce matchmaking times players previously. Instead, players have ran into a succession of issues revolving around bots with skills ranging from novice to pro or even god-like. Since its addition into the game, bots quickly became infamous rather than helpful and funny to see in game.
PUBG Player Runs Into a Wall-Hacking Bot
Redditor u/jacklesworth spectated their killer and realized that the killer was a bot. In this viewing mode, name tags show where players are located with the player hiding behind a wall next to an open window.
The bot roamed around the church and can be seen looking directly at where players are located. Almost looking like they also had wall-hack or radar-hack, bots are programmed to find players to initiate contact. This bot may have been ‘over programmed’ as it found the player and without hesitation fired bullets at the player.
The player didn’t even peek through the window but was quickly killed as bullets unfortunately penetrated the church walls. In the bot’s view, the player’s death can be seen as a puff of color is seen at the window. At least the player wasn’t in the final group of players when this happened, but it is still unfortunate and frustrating that a bot ruined the game.
The PUBG community has been finding bots frustrating since its release and this incident further shows why. Other incidents include bots spawning mid-game and being able to kill real players when they were originally easy, free kills and comedic to watch in-game.
