When you don't get to pick a perk what does the game pick for you?


#1
  • Sometimes we join the lobby in late and didn’t get to pick
  • Sometimes we join in mid game.

I noticed that Torvald bots always pick Capacity and Maggies MS, is it different for every character?


#2

I always thought every bot runs with Capacity. Don’t think they ever got around to randomizing the perks.


#3

Pretty sure Torvald bots never take Capacity. It always pains me to take one over. I swear it’s different for each bot. Maggie seems like she takes MS. I think Val takes Capacity though. Again, these are just my personal observations. No idea if I’m correct or not though.


#4

I’m sure it’s bot random. For some reason bot Laz takes Quick Switch. I remember that. Crow takes reload. Markov takes reload too I think.
It’s sort of hard to remember because of how infrequent it is.


#5

i think @Insane_521 @GentlemanSquirl @LordDeath might know the official answer (probably random)

however, i think they should consider changing it to where it chooses a popular perk rather than any perk. like Laz usually has reload, movement, damage reduction, jetpack recharge. So instead of a bot randomly choosing jump height, damage increase, or even quick switch, it would randomly pick one of the “popular perks” instead


#6

if I remember, Torvald picks reload. Laz almost always runs QS or reload. Make usually picks the same as laz. Val picks cap. Markov is reload. Crow either runs QS or reload


#7

Caira either chooses reload or damage resistance, it kills me :weary:


#8

At least she didn’t pick damage increase.


#9

It would nice if the Bot choose meaningful perk. Even better would be that we pick ourselves once joined, or the very least we should be told which perk is chosen.


#10

If you join midgame to a bot that had a player you will have their perk.

I’ve come in frequently with health regen.


#11

It’s random.
Would be helpful is your perk were visible in the minimap tab instead of having to play a round of Blue’s Clues to figure out exactly what you’re playing with.


#12

I’ve had bots in matches with me that had the health regen perk. It seems to be one of the most popular choices by bots.
