You have to update the game 1st I suggested taking the game and system to someone's house that has Internet hook up to it and update the game itself because bots was a date added in as a updated for offline mode

Me too I hae the brand new x box 360 2011 but idk how to play with bots or how to set them up

Guest answered:

OK first of all I have a good solution to this problem the reason why some of you can't edit some of the multiplayer maps is because you need to download the latest update on Xbox live.

Guest answered:

I think you need 2 controlers then go onto multiplayer then go onto split screen then add your 2nd controler then play a match then get out of it and then on top of create a class it should say game options or something like that the add players (there not real players there the ps3 or xbox ) then go play

and if it doesnt work there is something wrong with the game

but I don't know case I tried that on my friends and it worked

Get two controllers or a friend on local split screen or xbox live split screen multiplayer and go into edit game options and it should show up in multiplayer with two players or more and then you can add enemies try freeferall it's fun
Guest answered:

You must connect your console to the internet and have it download a new patch for Black Ops, only then can you play against bots, you do not have to pay for gold to get the update on 360. The patch should automatically pop-up on screen when you start the game while you are connected to the internet, download and follow the previous instructions.

The reason you can't play is the head drive trust me I got a new one and the it worked
Guest answered:

Connect to the internet, you don't need live, and download the latest update for the game. The update should have a patch which provides the edit game options menu. It worked for me Smile

where should i connect?
Guest answered:

I have also this problem, but I think you have to go once to the combat fight training (YOU NEED LIVE)! So to get the bots, just go to a friend WITH xbox live, put your CD in the xbox, play once the combat fight training and violà, you have the bots.

Guest answered:

you need to get an upadate don't need live basicly go on to initial option if you have the new 360 slim then complete update an then don't get happy done!

Guest answered:

Use free trial of live then play with random person on combat training then there you go..... Unless you don't have internet..... Go to someone elses house

marc926 answered:

SO when I go to local the then split screen the edit game will gust pop out?

Guest answered:

You need to install the 3arc update, you do not need live for this only an Internet connection and you do not need to do a combat training session either

KnockEmDead1996 answered:

Go to splitscreen multiplayer. Then you must go to options and turn on however many enemies you want at whatever difficulty.

animated turd answered:

So what everbody is saying that you need Xbox live or an update for bots on Bo1... Then how would I download a update?

Guest answered:

I had the same problem. Just hook up your xbox 360 to the internet, do multiplayer and xbox live. Then sign in with the first account you have. I don't play for live. I think I used the free trial that came with the xbox, but I don't know if you need that. As soon as I logged in, it told me to update. After the update it worked.

Guest answered:

Do you have internet? Internet....not xbox live. Go to settings, network connection and just connect xbox to wifi to PC. Dnt need to connect to xbox live. Ur xbox should do a update then play the game and it will do a update then you should see what everyone is saying above

Guest answered:

Its simple, update the game online, it's in an update. After it's updated you will be able to play offline no problem. You can just do it once like I did! Enjoy guys!!

I think all everybody needs is just internet, then the update. UPDATE AND THEN IT WILL BE LIKE GOD TO YOU ALL.
Guest answered:

Go to split screen on the multiplayer menu,then press game settings. You'll then be able to set up to nine CPUs in the game.
