PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS players have recently criticized the game for adding AI characters into the game to fill lobbies.
Players argue it ruins the experience when bots aren’t responsive or threatening to a human player. The need to fill a lobby with bots makes the game less competitive overall and turns players away to other titles like Call of Duty: Warzone. Players were so fed up with bots that they took to Cameo and enlisted Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku to reach out to PUBG Corp.

Reddit user beathedealer posted the video to the PUBG Console Reddit.
“To PUBG, please, number one remove all the bots. We don’t wanna shoot computer or AI people, none of that,” Njoku said in the Cameo video. “Put the M249 back in the box. We understand it’s fun picking up that gun, but it’s a 150 round drum.”
Njoku is notably a fan of PUBG over other titles in the genre. As industry giants like Activision put their stamp on the scene with a big title like Warzone, PUBG fans hope the developers stay active and keep one of the original games back on the map.
