For Season 11, Epic Games is adding bots to the game. Bots will work in line with the new matchmaking system, and players will get fewer bots as their skills improve. Also, bots will not be added to the Competitive playlists. Bots will behave similarly to normal players and will provide a better path for new players to improve their skills.
