The Doom Bots of Doom mode

The Doom Bots of Doom, also known as Nightmare mode, is a Featured Game Mode for League of Legends. The first featured mode to utilize bots, this is Co-op vs. AI with a twist: each bot has mutated, granting them empowered abilities. On higher difficulties, Doom Bots will mutate further over the course of the game - picking up the abilities of other champions, alongside their own.


Game flow

Battle against the Doom Bots of Doom on an extra spooky Summoner's Rift in this survival style game mode. Doom Bots will rush your lanes relentlessly. Survive! Try to survive for 15 minutes until Little Devil Teemo profileicon The Evil Overlord of the Doom Bots is summoned. Defeat him to win the game!

Lose your nexus and be doomed forever...

Other gameplay notes

Doom bots don't go back to shop or heal, but when they do die they'll be back in lane before you know it. The map has been cut in half so we could double down on the doom. Enemy towers are invulnerable. Don't bother trying to push.

In the event you manage to suicide some minions into an enemy tower, you'll receive burst of HP/mana for some sustain.

Upon breaking certain kill 'quest' thresholds, your team will receive a boost in power. Work together to get kills and power up in time.


Custom difficulty in "The Gauntlet" mode:

  • In "The Gauntlet", we're letting YOU set the difficulty and choose how hard you want the Doom Bots to be when challenging them.
  • Set a custom Doom Bots difficult from 1 - 100 at the start of the game to modify your Doom Bots.
  • Use the chat command "/votelevel ##" and have 3 or more players vote for the same difficulty level to lock it in. (EG: /votelevel 65)
  • If a difficulty is not agreed on and voted for within 90sec, the mode will randomise a difficulty level.
  • On completion, your match history will show what level you completed as PROOF of your accomplishment (or demise).
  • Special Icons will be rewarded after the event for players that complete some of the highest possible levels compared to anyone else in the world.

Get ready - it’s almost time for the next Featured Game Mode!

You thought Brazil’s Veigar Bot was challenging? Think again! We’ve souped up the bots to DOOM levels, giving them mind-melting abilities that’ll blow you away. Thought Amumu was already emo enough? What if Amumu’s Doom Bot is so sad he makes all his nearby allies units CRY WITH DESPAIR, too? What if Ziggs’s Mega Inferno Bomb broke off into six MINI INFERNO BOMBS after landing, or if Lux’s Final Spark burst out in ALL directions around her? Each of the Doom Bots have had their abilities tinkered with, and things most definitely get crazy when they get aggressive.

Fight the Doom Bots and you’ll unlock harder difficulties. Bots with 2 Bombs respawn with Bonus Doom effects such as Anivia’s passive or Swain’s ultimate, while 5 Bomb Doom Bots carry TWO Bonus Doom effects and provide the most extreme challenge in this brain-bursting Featured Game Mode!

The Doom Bots of Doom will be cavorting around the Fields of Justice from July 17 to July 27, and you’ll unlock a Doomtastic summoner icon if you challenge them at least once!
