Mods Bot Weapons and Equipment

Bot Weapons and Equipment

This BLT mod allows you to choose the Team AIs weapons as well as their visual appearence via ingame menus. The visual appearence like armor, masks and deployables will be synchronized with other players in your lobby (Deployables and masks can only be synchronized to clients that also have the mod though). Keep in mind that those changes are purely cosmetic and it will not enable Bots to place deployables or tank more damage. In terms of weapons, this mod does 2 things: First of all it enables you to choose each Bots used weapon so they don't all spawn in with Car-4s or AKs. Secondly, it exchanges all the really low definition NPC weapon models with the first person weapon models the players use (or third person if you disabled HQ weapons in the video settings).

Note: When playing in an online lobby, the weapon selection of the Bots is restricted to the default NPC weapons and they will use the low quality models unless you're playing in a private lobby where everyone else also uses the mod. This is due to unmodded clients crashing when they join you with different weapon models for the bots enabled.

The mod also gives you a toggle option to change weapon damage of the bot weapons to be more consistent. Enabling this option will give equal damage to similar weapons, disable the damage falloff but also scale the damage to the difficulty you're playing at. Overall it tries to balance the weapon classes to make them all equally useful, since Overkill didn't make proper presets for them due to them not being used by bots normally.

Additional info

If you use Shotguns on bots, why not take a look at NPC Shotgun Pellets which makes them more useful on Team AI and Jokers by making them work like player shotguns.

You can also find Bot Weapons and Equipment on GitHub, so if you want to help with anything, feel free to fork the project, make changes and create a pull request if you're done so I can look at the changes. If you have a GitHub account this is also the preferred way to submit any issues you may have.
