Hey all, was pointed here from Steam Discussions. Here’s the thread for anyone interested in reading the feedback from other players: Bot AI needs to be looked at again. :: Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Helmgart Keep - General Discussions
And here’s a copy/paste of what I posted:
So, I’ve been trying to play through the game both solo and with one or two other people, and no matter what, the bot AI leaves so much to be desired.
•When a Special pops up, the bot will RUN TOWARDS THEM instead of utilizing their ranged weaponry (and yes, they have ammo).
•During horde fights, they take large amounts of damage, or worse, do basically nothing at all.
•When bots are trying to pick a player up, they’ll prioritize BLOCKING over reviving, even though you already block while picking someone up.
•They’re at their most useful during a Monster fight, and even then, they only seem to focus on the chaff first before even thinking about attacking the monster, leaving me to be the only one taking any sorts of damage from the monster.
•Their damage output is appalling. Like, abysmally low for what I have them equipped with. It’s almost obvious that they’re doing next to nothing.
•They seem to have extremely poor interactions with Beastmen. I’ve watched them, on multiple occasions, approach a basic Beastman fodder enemy, swing ONCE, and then get completely demolished because their block timing seems to be completely broken.
EDIT: •Bots will stand inside of gas clouds when trying to revive someone who died to the gas cloud, causing them to die as well.
All of this combined makes for a terrible bot experience. I’m having to play around THEM instead of them playing around me, and I don’t like babysitting AI when they can barely even keep themselves up.
PLEASE take another look at the AI. I’m begging you, they need to be far better than this.
