In the Game Setup menu, don't forget to tweak the map, game modes & Game Rules to maximize your practice or testing session. We recommend choosing a smaller map so there's plenty of target encounter, increase the match time limit and turn on "Skip infil" to save time when starting matches.

How to Set Up Bot Match For Warzone

Warzone Bots Matches Are Far More Restrictive

Warzone Bot matches are far more restrictive than Modern Warfare core modes. In fact, you cannot tweak anything at all as the Warzone's bot only match is more of a byproduct of training mode than a real Bot Match game.

How To Set Up Matches With Bot For Warzone

Go to the Warzone lobby and click on the bottom playlist "Practice Modes & Trials". This will bring you to another menu.

Choose "Battle Royal Practice"

Battle Royal Practice

Click on the "Battle Royal Practice" to begin a match against bots in a controlled Battle Royale round. Here, you'll play a mock match of Battle Royale against AI opponents all at each other's throats. The Bot AI is somewhat easier than normal.

A Restricted Smaller Map With Situational Bot Opponents

A Restricted Smaller Map With Situational Bot Opponents

Battle Royal Practice is a restricted practice match against bots where you'll encounter circle collapse, free-for-all battle play and even contracts. It is always the same map where the match is fought on and all bots will kill each other, making it a mixed experience at best for bot matches.

Spawn With An X16

Spawn With Your Choice Loadout

Similar to a game of Battle Royale, you get to spawn in with just an X16 Handgun. However, if you want to swap attachments or loadout mid-match, you'll still need to buy a Loadout Drop.
