Star Wars: Hunters bots have ridiculous names and players love it

With the release of Star Wars: Hunters on mobile devices and Switch, players have been flocking in to check out the free-to-play PvP arena combat game, and have noticed their first few games are filled with hilariously-named bots.

The premise in Star Wars: Hunters is simple, you choose one of a number of heroes, and you're thrown into an arena to fight it out. The game currently has many species from the Star Wars universe, such as Wookie, Jawa, Robot, and Human.

The above screenshot from my own gameplay made me giggle a bit. DarkBader, Lurk_Skywalker, and even JediParty were pretty funny. Others I've seen include lolthcats, MoffPidgeon, and BlueMilkDeliverer. Those last two especially made me chuckle.

There's a post in the Star Wars: Hunters subreddit where you can go ahead and add the funniest names you've seen so far – but this is for all usernames, not just bots. A few more notable mentions there are garbage_gobblers and OMGUShotMe.

You can expect to be matched with real players from around level 5 or 6, at which point you'll immediately notice the difference. Enemies stop standing in one place to let you shoot them, for one. You also won't be as likely to constantly top the leaderboard either, as disappointing as that may be.

So far, I've been dominating with Sentinel (the Storm Trooper tank), and Grozz (the Wookie) is also a fun hunter to play. I'm making sure to try all the new heroes I unlock though, and as with most MOBAs, you should do the same.
