The word Bot refers to software specifically written to automate a function. The name may have originally derived from 'robot'. They are also known as AI's or Artificial Intelligence. Many game developers use 'bots' as in-game characters to fill teams or provide the player with an opponent where players are not available. In For Honor, Bot refers to a non-player hero or minion that is completely controlled by the game. In the Practice Mode, bots are randomly selected as enemy heroes. In the Custom Match , players can alter the type and level of the Bots they fight with or against.
