Custom Arcade Deathmatch options question

Quick question…is it possible to change the bots starting weapons in this mode? I see it in the options menu but it doesn’t translate in game. Am I doing something wrong? I really just don’t want the bots to have Lancers as they’re way too strong in Arcade.

Well, weapons are tied to characters in Arcade, so I doubt it.

Weapon changes don’t affect weapons in Arcade at all. I tried preventing frag and boomshot spam by setting them to smokes and it had 0 impact.

Fugg. Oh well. Worth a shot. Thanks, man.
