    Gears of War 3 question.

    Are there bots in it? I was unaware that a multi-player game could be played with bots. But I was reading an article on the game and it said there was.

    Bots are seen in Horde Mode as well as Beast mode. Beast mode is quite a bit like Horde Mode, but I find Horde Mode to be more fun, and more challenging.

    I find it to be the opposite, you can set up all kinds of defenses in horde mode but in beast mode you have to counter them in oder to get kills and complete the round. There is also a 1 minute time limit in beast mode so it pretty much screams co-op since the higher difficulties will require help to kill heros.


    Back on topic, yes there are bots for every map you can select just one or two or you can set it to fill and play against them.

    Eh.. the campaign kinda upset me a bit, and I'm having buyers remorse. But if anyone ever wants me to join them on gears 3, I gladly will. Otherwise, I won't be playing it much.

    While I agree the time limit in beast mode is a nice challenge, I have ripped through beast mode a couple times, fast, all the way through. Horde mode, I haven't got past level 19 yet (or level 20..I forget which one).

    I didn't think it was bad. I enjoyed it.

    Maybe yeah man, I might try to hook up with you sometime to do some horde or beast.

    I ran a little late to the party as it was. Had to go to dinner at a friends, and ended up not getting home till 7:30 or so. But now my 360 is acting up.

    We'll have to play another time.

    are there bots in Horde when playing local co-op? I always wanted to show my local co-op'er the true Horde experience, but I'm not paying for a second live account. So having bots in horde to make up the 5 gears would be what I'd be happy with

    If by local you mean standard then no they aren't they are just in private matches.

    no by local I mean offline co-op. So 2 players playing on one xbox, splitscreen. On Gears 2 it was just the 2 of you, which became too overwhelming in the latter waves. Would love it if there were 3 bots there to revive etc.

    Yeah, pretty sure, it can only be actual players in horde.

    No, you can not have bots in Horde Mode. You can only have actual people.
    I talk to myself because I'm the only one whose answers I accept.

    I think that makes sense, as it would be difficult to discuss with the bots where to fortify, when to upgrade, etc.

    The AI could determine the best route to fortify, repair etc.

    Not really, they could make it if you point at something you can make it an action for the bots or something.

    How do you explain Beast mode? The bots do a pretty good job there.

    Yup, but that isn't built in the Gears of War engine. That type of functionality would be nice though. Even if they added Kinect support, telling your teammates what to do.

    I don't explain beast mode. I was just guessing. But if you have the answer as to why no bots for friendly AI in Horde mode, we are all ears.

    shame there aren't any AI horde team mates. They could have just had an AI team mate alongside each player, so you're working in pairs, so if I went to fortify then my AI partner would follow me and take some shots.

    I just hope they didn't omit AI team mates because they would affect point scoring. Im not arsed whether my human co-op'er kills more or less enemies per wave than I do.

    Sigh, I suppose I'll have to wait until theres a live free weekend and create my friend an account
