Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 players are certain that AI bots are infiltrating online battles. The dominant belief is that developer Sledgehammer Games or publisher Activision insert bots into matches to increase player stats and make them feel good. This isn’t the first time the brand has been accused of anything similar, as Call of Duty: Warzone players believed bots were introduced into the game.
The reported inclusion of bots is the latest in a long line of controversy surrounding Modern Warfare 3. Fans were originally dissatisfied by the game’s limited campaign, which lasted barely five hours on average. Not to add, Call of Duty’s annual release cycle is a source of contention among aficionados and ordinary gamers. Despite this, the game has sold a large number of copies. Even statistics show that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was a success in terms of hours played.
AI bots have been added to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s online multiplayer, according to reports on the game’s subreddit. Following these charges, YouTuber Blame Truth – The CODfather created a video detailing all of the strange activity he’s witnessed in the game. While other online games, like as Fortnite, use bots in online matches, neither Sledgehammer Games nor Activision have revealed anything about Modern Warfare 3.
The speculation around the AI bots appears to arise from peculiar conduct from several players within the game, as shown in the video. According to the idea, either Sledgehammer or Activision is discreetly adding AI bots in online matches to bolster players’ egos and encourage them to play more. However, the suspected bots are unintentionally glitching and acting abnormally in online encounters.
While many gamers think AI bots are deployed in online matches, this is not always the case. Strange behavior in online matches could be caused by a variety of circumstances, ranging from new players to a slow internet connection. Despite terrible reviews, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is selling well, indicating that many players have purchased the latest edition in the CoD franchise. As a result, it’s reasonable to believe that at least some of these millions of players are new to the brand and are unintentionally acting in a way that veteran players perceive as bot-like.
Chat moderation is one place where Activision very probably uses AI technologies. As part of an ongoing attempt to identify toxic speech in real-time, Call of Duty just implemented AI voice chat filtering. The technology was fully released alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
