Common Problems with Bots Binds
CS:GO Automatically Moved You to Another Team (mp_autoteambalance)Sometimes when adding bots you can find that the game automatically moved you over to another team, this happens because of the team balance feature to ensure there are an unequal amount of players on either side. To turn it off just enter mp_autoteambalance 0 command into the console.
You Cannot Add More Bots (mp_limitteams)If you cannot add more bots probably the problem is in the mp_limitteams command. For example when it is set to 1, and the CT team had 3 and the T team had 2, a new player would not be able to join the CT team. So just set this command to mp_limitteams 0 and you should be able to add more bots.
Tell Bot to Hold Position CommandWhen playing on Faceit you can find that bots do not listen to commands all the time. Information is not proven but how players noticed obedience for the bot set to 50% if you kicked the player and 100% if the player left on his own. This is made for CS:GO because Valve does not want bad-performing players being kicked for bots all the time. The best solution we found for this is to execute the "Hold This Position" command strictly after the freeze time, in that case, the bot will listen most of the time.
Stop & Place Bots Commands Require sv_cheats to be set to 1bot_stop and bot_place commands require sv_cheats 1. Binds that we included in the article already have the sv_cheats command turned on so you do not need to worry about it, but you have keep this in mind in case something is not working.
Additional Bots Commands
- mp_autoteambalance 0 – allows you to play solo vs more than 3 enemies.
- mp_limitteams 0 – allows you to add lots of bots.
- bot_dont_shoot 1 – forbids bots to shoot.
- bot_knives_only – makes bots to use only knife.
- bot_all_weapons – allows bots to use weapons.
- mp_death_drop_gun 0 – bots do not drop weapons after death (the same can be done with grenade/defuser/c4).
- sv_infinite_ammo 1 – allows you to never run out of bullets.
- "mp_respawn_on_death_ct" = "0" client replicated – When set to 1, counter-terrorists will respawn after dying.
- "mp_respawn_on_death_t" = "0" client replicated – When set to 1, terrorists will respawn after dying.
