Here's a page which tells you how to add bots to your game:

http://www.forums.urbanterror.net/index.php/topic,8053.0.html

It's a comprehensive set of instructions but it doesn't tell you which bots have which weapons/armour/gear, which is something I'd really like to know. Anyone seen a list?

Note: the cockroach bot name should be spelled without a space. Be aware that you can't use spaces in bot names though. Use underscores instead.

Know also that the ping value will default to zero (0) for bots added to a game hosted on your computer (no network traffic), so you may as well set it to 0 in the first place, making life a little easier.

I use the config file method which allows multiple bots to be added at once, saving time and thus reducing the risk of being shot whilst adding bots. I've made several .cfg files with names like bots4.1.cfg, bots.4.2.cfg - denoting two sets of different bots all set to level 4. Level 1 makes bots stupidly easy to kill. Level 5 is almost as tough as playing online with the pros, except bots are much less cooperative in team games.
By using small groups of bots at different skill levels I can mix and match my teammates/opponents by loading in different .cfg files depending on the map and how lucky I'm feeling. When it's getting too easy I just kick off a few level 3 bots and add a level 4 or 5 bot instead.

Note: set all bots to join the same team (e.g. blue) in all your config files and they'll be distributed evenly anyway (unless you've changed that option in your server settings, I think). Add them one by one and they won't.

Handy hint: I've taken to naming bots according to their bot name and the level I've set them to, e.g. mantis_4
This makes it easier to identify bots with weapons that you tend to use (more ammo) and comes in handy when you want to kick off lower level bots in order to add harder ones, or vice versa.

One more thing; if you have an autoexec.cfg file in your q3ut4 folder just insert this on a new line and bots will be enabled by default when you start UT4:

set bot_enable 1

That way you won't have to first enable bots and then reload the server.
Once you've saved the autoexec.cfg file, launched UT4 and started a server, you can add bots straight away in the usual manner.

Note: .cfg files are basically text files with a different suffix, so they can be edited in Notepad, Text Edit, BBEdit, etc.
If you don't have an autoexec.cfg file then you can easily make one. Use double forward-slashes if you want to add comments, e.g:

// Enable bots for single-player mode
set bot_enable 1

Good luck, have fun and please be merciful should you find me playing online. All the best,
