Quake3 Hopper is a generic executable that activates special bot AI for all mods that have been available so far as well as original Quake3 Arena and Team Arena. As this mod name implies, bots can now hop around the level like human players. And they roam the whole level more evenly. Plus they have now improved item collection AI.
