PeZBOT is a multiplayer bot-mod for Call of Duty 4 and World at War. The aim of the mod is to introduce relatively life-like A.I. to local multiplayer games so those who choose not to go online or prefer to practice against bots before doing so, can. This mod is no longer in development but feel free to download the source code, create your own version and share it in the forums.

PeZBOT 005p for Call of Duty: World at War - offline multiplayer bots for those who like to play offline.

Version 005p (19 September 2010):

- Bots will now throw Signal Flares.
- Bots may spread out / flank more.
- No longer require sv_botsRandomInput DVAR in the command line.
- Added in-game PeZBOT menu allowing you to change PeZBOT settings without having to use the console. (Press "B" (default) then select PeZBOT)
- The mod will now appear in the mod list on the game menu.
- "Being obvious" distance increased - bots will see you from a slightly longer distance away if you are not moving.
- Bots will now choose attachments for weapons.
- Bots will now choose a perk upon spawning.
- Bots start at a random rank.
- Bots may now melee enemy dogs.
- Rewaypointed Seelow for better performance - from 486 to 373 waypoints.
- Fixed waypoint bugs in all maps.
- Added DVARs: svr_pezbots_axis & svr_pezbots_allies to give greater control and allow uneven team selection.


We have no problem if people want to mod PeZBOT and release their own version, but we have one golden rule: the new mod MUST be renamed in the following format "PeZBOT_" + "MOD NAME OR MAKER" + "VERSION NUMBER". This is to avoid any confusion about which mod is which and by whom.

We are more than happy to supply the source for our latest versions and let people update their modded PeZBOT with our latest scripts. We would ask that each PeZBOT modder release the souce to their mod and make it freely available and permitted to be itself modded or added to another version of PeZBOT, including ours if we like the addition.

With this arrangement, the PeZBOT mod will be the winner. Instead of two heads working on new ideas and solving problems we can have many.

This is pre-alpha code, meaning it is in no way feature complete and may be full of bugs, use at your own risk. We will not be held responsible for any damages this mod does to your PC.


PEZZALUCIFER - Original author of the mod: did all of the coding of the CoD4 version until 008p and ported the mod to WaW. Huge thanks to him for creating this great mod and letting us continue to improve it!

ATB - Huge amount of coding: lots of bug fixes and huge additions, the mod wouldn't be what it is today if it wasn't for him!

Things to know:

- This is pre-alpha code, meaning it is in no way feature complete and may be full of bugs!
- All stock maps, as of patch 1.7, are waypointed.
- Bots work on all game modes. (See "Known Bugs/Issues")
- Bots have been tested and working on version 1.7 of World at War. (Please do not report any bugs found with older versions!)
- Bots DO NOT work in Nazi Zombie Mode or Co-Op! They are for Multiplayer only.

The game works like COD4 pezbot but with a different place to put the mod. You have to enable "hidden files and folders". Just click Start on your PC and type hidden files and folders on the Search bar below to access it. Since I'm using Win7 it is located here: Drive C/Users/Your Pc name/AppData/Local/Activision/CoDWaW. Chances are you'll find two folders there that is players and servercache. Just make one folder and name it mods. Place that PeZBOTWAW_005p inside it(mods) and Start the game. Just click MODS and launch. Now you're ready to play CoDWaW pezbot and just press "B" on the keyboard to access the menu. Have fun.

did everything you have said but still doesn't work... in the console, i type the command, ex. "/svr_pezbots 10" then something comes like this "unknown_cmd : svr_pezbots" means it's not really working at all... all the comments in here have the same problem means it has a 50% chance to work? is there any solution?? i'm asking the same questions just like everyone has.. but still no one have an answer to this problem... you are refering only to the right installation but not on how the mod really work or not in game... hope you can kindly help us.. thanks!!!

I have a rather interesting issue I'd like to raise up.
I've installed the mod in the correct directory.
I've copy & pasted the execution path onto a multiplayer shortcut.
I've reinstalled the game and patched it up.
As soon as the my server on the correct shortcut it crashes back to the main menu with this error message.
Your guidance to fix this would be much appreciated

Do you think reinstalling and repatching the game might have interfered with some of the appdata files, including pezbots?

Wizard_0_0 Nov 15 2010 says:

Hey Gannondorf are there any plans to make this mod more compatible with a dedicated server. Restarting the server after every map is a pain to say the least. Figured out a way to automate it so not as bad now.

Love the mod awaiting next release.

If anyone wants the IP pm me for it

No plans. The mod is designed for local offline play, not dedicated servers. Sorry.

Are you trying to run this on a dedicated server or host on your own machine?

More than likely it is a problem with your command line in either case.
Read the installation read me file, and follow it.

It will never work if you're placing the mod on the game directory. You have to access the hidden files and folder for CODWaW and place it there.

It does restart after every map. No way around that at the moment.

If you changed your command line to play the bots change it back to default that should fix it.

should be something like this:
"C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty - World at War\CoDWaWmp.exe"

To play on our server just start mp normally and join, you should not start with the mod command line.

gamerdude132 May 24 2011 says:

Okay, so I followed ALL of the instructions to the letter, but that didn't work. I ****** around until the game flat-out didn't work.

So I reinstalled it, making sure to patch the game BEFORE I put the mod in (that's what messed the game up before, by it not being in order). Then I put the mod in perfectly and did everything I was supposed to. The game works, the mod shows in my "Mods" thing in-game, I clicked it, started up a new server (Not dedicated, Maximum Ping at 999, Punkbuster turned off). I started up a nice bit of Team Deathmatch on Castle, typed in the command and ********. It doesn't work. When I start the match, it shows that I had loaded the mod and I had old it to load the mod at the MP Main Menu. But it simply doesn't work.

Can someone tell me what I did wrong?

P.S. Oh, and CoD4's version works perfectly. Great job on that one, by the way. So fun.

Probably one of the first things you do after launching the server is type that into the console, unless you use the 'B' menu (which I haven't seen yet).

I have a problem where I start the pezbot mod normally but if i select a gametype other than free for all and use the "/devmap" command the game starts with "free for all" anyway. Commands such as g_gametype don't work either. Any suggestions? How do i start a "War" game with bots using the /devmap command?

LucaP1000 Sep 18 2011 says:

You have to fix a very weird bug. Is not really a problem, but sometimes it happens: there's an enemy behind some place, and another bot sees him too early (like a kind of aimbot) and starts shooting at the wall and goes on and then it shoots the real enemy. For example, it happened once to me a bot started shooting at a rock, then he just blew himself up with the rocket launcher.

hey im having an issue with bots on knee deep, ive got 17 bots on and whenever bots spawn on a certain side of the map i think its C flag side they all cant move and i get incredible lag? its a really strange bug and it only occurs on this one map

vozmonsoon Jul 23 2013 replied:

This happens to me as well. Normally I only add 9 other bots to the game, and everything's cool. But sometimes I go ahead and add 19 cause I want something more 'war'-like. Then after two map changes only five other bots on my team will spawn at the beginning of the round and they will all walk in the same direction but they won't move. No enemy bots will spawn, only those five. I don't feel it's a map issue, but either way I wish it would be fixed. Also it happens on maps like Asylum etc, I've never tried Knee-Deep.
PS. It should be noted that if the gametype options have been set to give a limited number of lives (eg. S&D has 1 life per player) then after some time bots will bug up and not spawn at all, while still being in the player/teams list (tab).

vozmonsoon Jul 23 2013 replied:

The "Unhandled Exception Caught" error is getting alot of people. It's related to issues with the game rather than with the mod. Google the error and you'll get all sorts of solutions. I did 'Control Panel > Sound > Playback > Speakers-Properties > Advanced' and turned the format to "24bit, 48000 Hz (Studio Quality)" although how that resolves the issue I fail to see. What fixed it was I went into the HDD game files \zone\english\ and replaced every .ff file with the ones from the CD (setup\data\zone\english\ on the disc). This got rid of the 'UHE' problem, but unfortunately I had to reinstall all the patches. After doing that I reinstalled the mod. Hope that helps for anyone with the problem.

I got it to work!
Create the shortcut and add line as in readme file. But dont place the Mp_pezbots folder in local mods. Instead place it in installation folder D:\Games\Call of Duty - World at War\CoDWaW\Mods\mp_PeZBOTWAW
There should be a players folder called $$$ in \CoDWaW folder, this is your offline player. Dont delete it. saves your rank
