Game Modes in Piggy Roblox
In the Piggy game, a number of game modes are available including Player, Bot, Player + Bot, Infection, Build and Traitor. Here are the explanations about each of the modes.
In this game mode, there will be a random player who is selected to be Piggy. Of course, it will be with the proper skin applied. Meanwhile, the other players will be the survivors.
In this game mode, the player who controls Piggy is controlled through AI. A map-specific skin is owned by them.
- Player + Bot
In this game mode, you are able to enjoy the experience of the mix between Player and Bot game modes respectively. So, in this game, there will be a player who is selected as Piggy and they are accompanied by a bot as well.
In this game mode, there will be a player who is chosen as Piggy randomly. There is a twist when Piggy catches someone, they turn into a Piggy themselves and need to infect the remaining survivors. Let’s say that all survivors are infected or time runs out, then the piggies win.
In this game mode, AI controls Piggy and there is a random player who becomes the Traitor. Same as the role of Piggy, the Traitor also has to kill all Survivors. However, Traitors need to get caught because if a survivor has a loaded gun, they can shoot the Traitor and they will die. Besides, they can die to Piggy if they are not careful. If a player is shot and is not the traitor, they will turn into a Piggy.
This game mode is a level creator. In this mode, players can create their own level and can invite other players to play it.
