Brief: Wondering what you have to do to remove bots? Here’s how to kick bots in CS:GO with a command.

The bots in CS:GO are NPCs (Non-Player Characters) who are supposed to imitate real players and fill slots on the server. However, they are often not helpful at all, or even disturb us in some situations.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to remove a bot from competitive mode or from a server that you do not own. You need access to the server commands to get rid of them.

In this tutorial you will learn the most important commands that will allow you to remove either all the bots or the bots from a certain team in offline mode.

Whatever your reason, you have several options to start a game without bots on your own server.

Tip: If you only want to remove some of the bots, use the bot_quota X command. Enter the maximum number of bots on the server in place of the X. Then use mp_autoteambalance 1 and mp_restargame 1 to balance the number of bots in both teams.

Okay, you already know the theory. Now let’s go to practice. ?

Here are 3 ways to kick bots in CS:GO:

Good to know: At the end of 2019 Valve added an update that dramatically improved the bots' skills and their artificial intelligence. With the command mp_bot_ai_bt scripts/ai/deathmatch/bt_default.kv3 bots become very powerful. Use this command, then restart the game, kick bots and add new ones to increase their difficulty.
