As fun as the battle royale genre is, it's rather frustrating when you spend minutes waiting for a game to start and get immediately eliminated by a veteran player the second you drop into the map. You've probably experienced something similar before in Fortnite on the Nintendo Switch.

To combat this, Epic is evening out the playing field across all platforms with the assistance of bots. Bots will work alongside a new and improved matchmaking system that aims to group players of similar skill levels together. As you get better, so should your opponents. Here's the rundown about bots:

They will behave similarly to normal players and will help provide a better path for players to grow in skill. Bots will work in conjunction with the new matchmaking system, and as your skill improves, you’ll face fewer Bots. Bots will not be present in Competitive playlists. This is another system that we will continue to update and iterate.

The improved matchmaking system is rolling out in the Version 10.40 update of Fortnite. Bots are expected to follow next season, which currently has no set launch date. Click here to view the latest Fortnite patch notes.
