Fortnite Players Voice Concerns About Overwhelming Presence of Bots in Lobbies

Fortnite players and content creators are expressing concerns about the increasing number of bots in unranked lobbies.

Returning to Fortnite’s original days was an enormous success, with over 44 million players returning to the game in a single day.

Despite the success, Season OG marks the shortest season in Fortnite history, starting on November 3 and concluding on December 2 with a meteor strike on the map.

Popular streamers, including Dr Disrepect, TimTheTatman, and Tfue, returned to the game during the OG season. However, it was CourageJD who initiated a discussion about the prevalence of bots.

Fortnite bots have taken over lobbies

Unranked Fortnite lobbies lack skill-based matchmaking, leading to an influx of bots. The exact number of bots in each lobby is a topic of concern among players.

“My biggest takeaway after talking to many returning Fortnite OG players during this last month is that many of them hated how many bot lobbies they had,” said Courage on Twitter/X. “With 5.5 million concurrent players, it just doesn’t make sense that so many AI are in lobbies. Anyone else agree?”

Other content creators echoed Courage’s concerns in the comment section, some reporting hours without being targeted and others debating the pros and cons of having bots in lobbies.

“I would rather AI lobbies so I can continue to play with the friends I used to play with rather than a lobby of 100 people who never stopped playing,” said one user. “It’s a skill issue, but it makes them come back. I get it’s different when it’s your job vs casual play though.”

Bots or skill-based matchmaking, it seems that players are struggling to find a solution to make multiplayer games enjoyable. Epic Games has yet to address the growing issue of bots in Fortnite. However, a potential resolution could be presented in the upcoming season.
