Call of Duty 4 - Multiplayer Bots

This would pretty much be a follow up from the previous post. Right, so I’ve recently been into the whole COD4 thing once again, and since that day, I’ve been wanting to play the multiplayer mode. Not just the Single Player missions.. but the multiplayer rounds. =)

This would be possible, like in CounterStrike, with the use of bots. And I’m proud to say, I’ve found them! *everyone goes YAY* Took quite a while to dig, and even more time to troubleshoot.. but it was perhaps worth it.. so here’s how and what to do to get them running..

Firstly, you ought to patch the current version to 1.6. I’m not exactly sure what’ll happen if you use anything above 1.6 (does it even exist?), but anything below 1.6 and the ranks won’t really work. In other words, in the game, you’ll earn points and might even be promoted, but these promotions won’t stay, instead, the next round/map you play.. you’re back to square one; trying to get a rank of ‘Private’. Needless to say, the Perks and Weapon upgrades won’t work either, so please.. do patch to version 1.6. The patch file for 1.6 is quite big, approx 280mb, so I’m not gonna even try to host it, instead here’s the link to get it from elsewhere in cyberspace. And since it’s so big, you might wanna try this nifty little program to help you expand ur download bandwidth.. =)

Next, you’ll need the bots themselves.. this one is just a small zip file with a pretty much self-explanatory readme file.. You can get PeZBOTS (that’s their name by the way) here.

With that you ought to be able to blast ur way thru the multiplayer maps with the bots, and unlock the perks and weapons gradually.. have fun!

..For the few disorientated folks who did not purchase Call of Duty 4 but have somehow managed to own a copy of it *cough*, after patching it to version 1.6, you might have some difficulty starting the Single Player mode (something about ‘inserting the correct DVD’).. this file might help. If you don’t know what I’m referring to, then just ignore this. =)

========= UPDATE 09 Feb 2010 =========

I just realised that my box.net file hosting stuff is gone.. somehow the links are dead and I can't even login to the portal.. bookmark this page and check back again in a week.. I'll dig up the files and re-host them somewhere else.. =) cheers!

how can I make that the bots appear only in one of the teams?

Anonymous said...

That ROCKS!!!!! But I want to be one man team if you know what I mean! I want to make the bots OpFor and I want to be the only marine.

hi there.. to set your bots to be on a single team, it should lie somewhere in the multiplayer shortcut attributes..

check out the readme file for instructions. basically, instead of attaching the "set svr_pezbots_team autoassign", change the autoassign part to 'allies' or 'axis'; more details in the readme file..

so my guess is that if you want to be a lone marine fighting against them, u could try changing it to 'axis'..

hope it helps.. =)

Look here:

http://www.infinityward.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=204

It's the original Pezbot-Site!!!

patched-up said...

ya, but the forum's a bit dated. and it isn't all too informative.

If you do find a new version though, let me know, i'd be more than glad to put it up. =)

cheers!

Just came across this blog looking for CoD4 mods. Thanks for the info, I've been looking for this for quite some time (Since the original CoD).

Nice to see some people still share what they've learned.

Felt like reinstalling COD4 and playing some sinleplayer multiplayer, if you know what I mean... Stumbled across this looking for bots. You're a champion, thanks for the info!

Hey thanks :-)

Vinit said...

Thanks a lot for the informative post.
I installed patch, I also unzipped pezBots in cod4/mods folder, I start COD4 mp with pezbots as mod, but still I don't see any bot in map :(

What could be wrong?

Thanks in advance.

patched-up said...

Hi Vinit, try the following site. It's got a short description that mentions how to set the different settings.. in short, u'll need to declare the number of bots u want to insert.
