Team Fortress 2’s ongoing battle with cheaters and bots has entered a new stage where there are now bots that will kill other bots. We’ve entered bot war territory.

There is now a new type of bot in the Team Fortress 2 scene called “the extermination bot services,” which are scripted to only kill cheaters. They will supposedly only focus on cheating bots and will not bother regular players. Videos of the extermination bot services can be found online.

While this evolution in solving Team Fortress 2’s bot problem is a quirky twist, there are lingering issues. Namely, Team Fortress 2 is being overrun by bots, whether they’re cheating aimbots or anti-bot bots. If this escalates, as some players suggest, it could risk flooding Team Fortress 2 with even more bots.

Team Fortress 2’s cheating woes came to a head earlier this summer when bots began spamming hateful slurs into the game chat. Valve released an update that limits access to the text chat, but that doesn’t solve the aimbots and other bots obstructing Team Fortress 2 matches.

It’s unclear if Valve will take a stronger stance against the bot problem plaguing Team Fortress 2.
