How BOTS have been implemented?
Artificial Intelligence players are now a part of the matchmaking queues. Currently only on all platforms, you'll likely run into non-human players in your public matches. BOTS were recently released on PC along with Ranked Mode for competitive matchmaking.
Some key things to know about BOTS
- BOTS are dumb (at the moment).
There are varying levels of "skill" associated with BOTS. The vast majority are basically target practice and won't pose a threat. PUBG has stated that they are continuing to balance how BOTS react to players in game.
- BOTS are related to MMR.
PUBG is working on MMR matchmaking. What this likely means is that you'll encounter a lot of BOTS in your match until your MMR increases. I believe their intention is to allow new players a chance to get some kills, increase their skill level, then start playing more human players over time.
- BOTS are not in "Ranked Mode".
Ranked mode consists of squad queues where you will not face any bots. Only human players. It's designed to be a competitive mode that allows users to climb a leaderboard and gain rank.
- Percentages of BOTS in each game.
Early after release players will see very large amounts of BOTS in game. Anywhere from 95% BOTS to 20% BOTS. The minimum BOTS that you'll see in a public game is 20%. PUBG has stated that they are working towards reducing the number of BOTS in each game. The problem is related to MMR and AI intelligence levels when the match is created.

- How can you know if a player is a BOT in game?
The short version is, you can't. The longer version is that nearly all BOT names have an underscore in them. Some examples of BOT names are lon_glong625, Khaba_r, TuD_oYan. They generally look like a "made up" name and just about 100% of BOT players have an underscore in their name.
- Can I search for a BOT's player stats?
Yes and no. Season stats are not be available for AI characters. You can see a ton of information about AI players in your match by look at your PUBG Lookup match report. You can currently see: how many and what percentage of BOTS were in your match, rank in the leaderboard for BOTS, how many BOTS you killed, how many kills each BOT got. More features will be coming.
- Do I HAVE to play against BOTS?
In public match making you will play against bots... at least at the time of this writing. The minimum bot level is 20%. At that rate you likely won't interact with many bots if any at all. I hope that they'll reduce the minimum percentage down to zero at some point.
- Do BOTS fight each other?
Yes. AI characters will fight other AI characters in game. They will also die to the blue zone.

PUBG Lookup BOT data
Match reports provide detailed information on PUBG BOTS in your match including number of BOTS, percentage of BOTS, leaderboard rankings for BOTS, and the number of BOT kills you got in the match..
BOTS in your Match Report Leaderboards
BOTS are displayed with a robot icon and are colored orange to clearly display which players are AI. Currently, there is no way to access the damage a bot has done but we can display the number of kills bots got in game. You cannot view match reports for BOT players.
How many BOTS were in your game?
You can see detailed information about how many BOT players were in your game. With the introduction of cross play on console you can also see the number of players from different platforms. PUBG was recently released on Stadia as well. You will almost certainly see a high percentage of BOTS in your first games. As your MMR improves in the new season (Season 7) you should see fewer AI players in your match.
How many BOTS did you kill?
Along with other detailed kill stats you can see the number of BOTS that you killed out of your total kill count in your Player Kills panel. Your Total Kills represent all kills you had in the match and BOT Kills will display how many of those were AI players.
