We want the player to feel good about himself making mistakes against bots343i“Halo Infinite bots are, above all else, to assist players in their learning and experience with multiplayer. We want the player to feel good about himself making mistakes against bots, because making mistakes means that you are working on improving skills that you do not yet control, “said a company spokesman in statements collected by Eurogamer. “We do not want to punish those who seek to learn, much less make bots engage in behaviors that can be seen as exclusionary. Therefore, there is no programming whatsoever that encourages bots to ridicule you somehow”.
But what about the videos that show otherwise? According to the team in charge, we are only facing an error not related to the tea bagging. Specifically, it is a bug present in the preliminary version of the shooter that prevented bots from jumping and successfully climbing up the stairs or ramps, playing the animation in a loop. “In reality, the bot was just trying to climb the stairs“343i concludes.
