With fast-growing popularity, gamers now have resorted to easier means to get through the levels of most .io games. This development has led to the making of numerous .io game bots, which include agario bots, agma.io bots, powerline.io bots, and gota.io bots.

Agario was the first .io game and was released in 2015 by its Brazilian based developer called Matheus Valadares before its acquisition by Miniclip later on. Its overnight sensation and millions of players, became a source of inspiration for other similar games to be developed.

Bot usage in .io games
Bots are short for robots. The can be defined as computerized elements that have been developed to make work easier. In gaming, bots can further be described as software apps that are coded to perform specific automated tasks.
While bots sound like a good idea to get ahead fast through the levels in your favorite .io game, you should watch out for the malicious ones.
What bots can do in .io games?
Given that various bots are developed differently and by different developers, there is a wide array as to what each bot can do. For that reason, I will hereby four examples of .io game bots to explain what they have been coded to execute behind the scenes. Let us get to it then.
1. The vanilla bot
As the name suggests, this vanilla version bot was developed for hacking into Agario. It is free to use application made available under the open-source category in the Greasy Fork Forum.
It was developed in 2019 and is maintained by Jimboy3100. The bot uses a series of hack codes to exploit Agario and give users a competitive edge. Notably, part of this series can be mistaken for a virus attack so you might need to disable your antivirus when running it.
For maximum output, it is strongly recommended that you use either Opera or Chrome browsers. To be more precise, this bot is meant for those who ready to outgrow your cell in Agario with a few clicks.
2. Pro Macro
Only available from the Greasy Fork forum, Pro Macro is quite an efficient bot that allegedly works in several .io games including agar.io, agma.io, alis.io, xgar.io, among others.
This bot uses a special script that users get to install across their playing devices for it to take effect and hack through the targeted .io game.
Pro Macro was developed by NameIsNikan in 2017 and now records over 30,000 installs translating to about 31 downloads per day.
Despite not having a working license, it is good to see that it is regularly updated and is therefore in good shape to hack through the recent .io game updates. For easy use and maneuverability, take note of the key shortcuts such as W for feeding, A to freeze cells, and D to double split.
3. IO Game bot
Termed as crazy .io working bot, the io game bot was created in 2018 by Lorenzo Vazquez. As a Greasy Fork based .io bot, it is currently in its fourth version but is not regularly updated.
That said, its statistics stand at more than 11000 installs with about 16 downloads every day. However, the bot’s script has proven effective and works to support a bunch of numerous .io games including rata.io, agar.io, germs.io, gota.io, and many more.
The script is designed to exploit .io frameworks thus giving users more points and advantages.
With its code running from a private Ogar server belonging to the Ogar project, MultiOgar exists as a multiprotocol version that works best for gota.io game.
The bot can be downloaded from the GitHub platform and has been heavily modified by numerous contributors. Despite its support for multiple platforms, you will need NodeJS as a prerequisite before installing the bot.
The bot works by efficiently scanning and navigating through the in-game map and comes loaded with about 1000 minibots that help fetch food and subdivision of your cells. However, you should take note that the bot will only start slowing down once it becomes heavier.
