Build 309 is Now Live on Steam!

As we announced in last week’s Changelog, we’re releasing a patch this week! This patch contains all the tweaks and updates we held back from build 308, in favor of having more time to solely focus on the issues that came up after the LUAJit update.

Included in this update is the brand new Marine Commander tutorial. This will teach potential new commanders the basics of commanding and the marine tech tree. So if you wanted to get a basic understanding of commanding without being in a live game, there is now a way to do so.

But that’s not all! Thanks to the tremendous work of Trevor, with the help of a group of volunteers from the community, the new tutorial is packed with more easter eggs and secrets to discover. So even as a veteran commander it’s worth giving it a shot, if only just to unlock the new achievements!

We’ve been listening a lot to the community’s feedback about the current balance situation and the performance issues that have been showing up since the last few builds. With this build we started including changes which are trying to resolve some of those issues that were brought up. More improvements will follow in the future.

Meanwhile the team is still working on items from our roadmap that remi posted two weeks ago.

There is much more to come for NS2 on the horizon, so stay tuned and happy hunting!

Update 309 Changelog


  • Skulk HP raised to 75/10 (was 70/10)
    The intent of this is to make early game skulks a tiny bit less fragile and to make early game engagements more stable (the innate regen threw a RNG factor into those engagements)
  • Machine Gun changes
    • MG research time halved to 30 seconds (was 60)
    • Decreased MG spread to 4 radians (from 4.5)
    • Increased magazine size to 125 (from 100)
The MG is primarily designed to give Marines a chance to hold and extend their territory in the late mid game. The MG wasn’t really able to do that in the past. Halving the research time should help get it on the field before it’s too late. Furthermore decreasing the spread and increasing the magazine should make it reward players better for good positioning.
  • Railgun damage type changed to Structural (was normal, railguns now do double damage vs structures, and have no change vs players)
The Railguns can be fun to use against alien players, but at it’s current damage numbers it took 2-4 shots to pop a cyst which made it feel very underpowered. Doubling their damage output to structures will help give them more utility.
  • Marines now can’t turn their upper body as far to the right, without also turning their lower body (this makes it easier for aliens to tell which direction a marine is facing)
  • Marines now use a different animation while jetpacking, rather than the jumping animation
Tweaks / Improvements
  • New Commander Tutorial now available in the training menu!
    • Two new achievements added related to the commander tutorial
    • Removed the “commander help” in-game tutorial
  • Improved bot server performance by adding a tick rate for the bot logic routine which is set to 10 by default
    • This should lower the impact of bots onto the server performance by at least 50%
  • Updated the bot name list including more recent contributors
  • All serverbrowser filter act now the same way: Enabled will show given servers, disabled will hide given servers. Old filter settings are converted
  • The “full server” serverbrowser filter will now also take reserved slots into account
  • Added the server admin command “sv_rookieonly” to change the rookie only state of a server without requiring a map change or server restart
  • Replaced the server runtime error (SRE) icon when a script error occurs on the client with something prettier
  • Added another diagnostic icon which will appear when a script error occurs on the server (it’s purple!)
  • List the exact number of script errors that occurred on the server in net_stats and the client log
  • Windows servers now automatically save a mini memory dump into their log folder on crash (if your server crashes please send this to us so we can help diagnose it)
  • Fixed that the subscribed mods did not show up in server details window
  • Fixed that the rookie only check didn’t work on most rookie-only servers (this was previously deployed via the extension system)
  • Fixed that the buttons of popup that showed up when a non rookie tries to join a team at a rookie only servers did not work
  • Fixed that you could get stuck in place if you attempted to evolve a trait twice before turning into an egg
  • Fixed a script error in the alien commander bot routine
  • Fixed a small performance issue in the scoreboard update routine
  • Fixed that numbers in the options menu were too precise
  • Fixed that the pistol slide was not staying open when the gun is empty
  • Fixed that blink effects could cause visual artifacts when bloom was enabled
  • Fixed that protolab could cause blow out while being biled if bloom was enabled
  • Fixed that spectators could end up spectating non player entities in a rare case
  • Added the ability to lock the view horizontally with the space bar in film mode (Thanks Samus!)
  • Added ability to communicate with Webviews (Lua <-> Javascript)
    • WebView::ExecJS allows Lua code to call javascript inside the webview
    • WebView::HookJSAlert allows Lua code to respond to any Javascript alert( message )
  • Added Client.GetNumServerScriptErrors() to get the number of script errors that have occurred on the server (since map change)
  • The spread vectors table of the shotgun is now referenced via the class to make them easier to mod
  • Improved the Lua TraceLogger error messages to include more details
  • Viewer
    • Added JSON Export to Animation Graph editor
    • Improved Animation Graph editor visuals by highlighting incoming and outgoing lines from the selected node different colors.
    • It’s now possible to have one-way labels in the Animation Graph (animation state can jump out of this node to other nodes of the same label, but can only be entered by discrete connections)
  • Model Compiler
    • Fixed an issue that could cause models’ scaling to be strange when playing animations.
    • Fixed a bug that would cause cameras to not load properly.
  • Fixed possible crash on exit due to bad access in FMOD dll (when using Spark’s tools)

Natural Selection League, Season 10!

We'd like to take a moment and shine a light on our partners over at the Natural Selection League. Sign-ups are under way for season 10 of great competitive NS2 action and we couldn't be more excited! Below is all the information and links you might need to get involved with the next season, so gather your friends, create a team and get in on the action!

New to the ENSL?
Welcome to the Natural Selection League. If you’re looking for getting more out of your Natural Selection 2 experience, look no further. Power plays, crackpot strats, and the greatest competitive minds of Natural Selection 2 converge here to duke it out on the battlefield. Talk strategy, metagame, and high-level concept Natural Selection 2 on our forums, or enjoy a gather and fight to the top of the food chain. If you’re looking for more information, check the bottom of this post.Any questions can be directed to our help desk or by messaging an admin on ENSL, Steam, by email or Discord. A full list of current admins can be found here.

Brace yourselves, Season 10 is upon us! But.. we will be extended the deadlines for signups for two weeks. The signup deadline for Season 10 is now October 13th. We want the potential to seed a lower division as high as possible, with the intent of more and better matches. A reminder to sign-up if you haven’t already, as time is ticking!For all new players, you need a team of at least six players to compete in Season 10, please read the final section of this post on how to create or join teams.

Gathers have picked up steam and are running again. You can join a gather by registering an account and joining up here. Joining is easy, and practice can come in handy for the upcoming Season 10. Be sure to play more rounds to familiarize (or refamiliarize yourself on Mesh (formerly Docking2), Nexus, and Mineral, as these custom maps are staples of an ENSL season, and some have changed for the new Season.

Map Tests
Some of our mappers have come forward concerning high-level gathers on ns2_ayumi, a reimagining of the Natural Selection 3.0 map of the same name. Huge changes have happened recently with the map concerning balance, and feedback is necessary. Contact Kasharic or Mephilles for more information. If you have another map you’d like to see played in gathers, contact an admin.

Joining the ENSL
If you don't have a team or have yet to join the ENSL, it's easy to create an account or team with the following steps. If you want to register a pre-existing team, skip to step 4.
  • To create a team, register an account and create a new team! Creating a team is not necessary, nor is joining a team. If you’re looking to join a team, find a team and select the Request to Join button on their page. You’re free to use the ENSL website without any pressure from any teams.
  • Get your players to register and tell them to Join your team in their Agenda, which you can find at the top of the page! You can meet players in-game, in ENSL gathers, or on the ENSL or Unknown Worlds forums. As per usual ENSL rules, you must have at least six players for a valid Season 10 team!

  • Verify that your team name exists on the Contest page. If your team does not appear here, please follow these steps again. If all else fails, contact an admin.

"NS2 is een geniale mengelmoes van Counter Strike en Starcraft"
"Dit komt dicht bij mijn idee van de ultieme game"

Over dit spel

Natural Selection 2 pits alien against human in an action-packed struggle for survival. Wield devastating weaponry as a Frontiersman marine, or become the xenomorph as a deadly Kharaa lifeform.

Strategy Meets Shooter

Natural Selection 2 is a First Person Shooter and Real Time Stategy game rolled into one! Each team, alien and human, has a Commander. The Commander looks down on the battlefield and issues orders, places structures, collects resources, researches technology, and deploys abilities.

Here are some gameplay examples: A human Commander could drop health packs and ammunition to a trapped marine squad, and deploy sentry guns to help them defend their position. Or an alien Commander could grow a new Hive to spread infestation throughout newly captured territory, allowing more alien eggs to spawn...

Two Unique Sides

Aliens players choose to evolve into one of five lifeforms: The fast, fearsome Skulk can run on walls and deliver massive damage with its jaws. Lerks fly and deploy gasses to support their teammates in battle. Gorges heal other lifeforms and build tunnels, hydra turrets, walls, and other tactical structures. Fades blink in and out of battle, picking off marines with giant scythes. Finally, the giant Onos is so massive and so tough, that even entire marine squads can't take it down.

Marines wield rifles, shotguns, grenade launchers, pistols, and other weapons. Cluster grenades can clear ventilation shafts of sneaky Skulks, flamethrowers make short work of alien structures and infestation, and boosts dropped by the Commander increase combat effectiveness.

When attacking on foot doesn't cut it, marines can construct hulking Exosuits wielding miniguns and railguns, and equip jetpacks for high speed assaults on alien Hives.

Long Term Development

Natural Selection 2 receives constant updates. This year, 2016, Unknown Worlds continues to develop new features, content, and improvements.

Mod Tools Come Standard

Natural Selection 2 comes with all the tools we used to make the game. All game code is open source. That means you can create, and play, an endless variety of mods. Publish, share, and download mods from the Steam Workshop, and automatically download mods when you join modded games.

Digital Deluxe Edition

  • Official Soundtrack - 1 hour of tribal, industrial music composed by David John and Simon Chylinski

I saw this game on steam sale and thought why not lets give it a try.
Ive heard the community was a little thin and the learning curve was very high.
Wel i came online and saw that there where still plenty of servers up and running with a good amount of people playing
And yes it was a bit hard to get the hang of the game but i just asked and people where more then willing to help and explain.
I ended up on a nice rookie server where i played for a good 3 hours and had a blast, people using voicechat having a laugh was good fun.
Also the graphics of the game where beter then i expected i thought it would be a bit outdated if u get what i mean but it was good.
I recomend this game this game if u like a good shooter, with combination of aliens and scyfi feel, also the RTS side of being a commander is a nice plus, havent tried it yet so i cant comment on it, But its suposed to be like C&C and Starcraft.
The game is a bit expensive for €22,99 so try to get it on sale like i did for €5,-

great game, coöperation from the whole team is necesarry to bring a good game. Perfect combenation between strategy and FPS and it has a nice dark feeling of insurance crawling over your back as a marine. The one moment you are the hunter and the other your the hunted.

Need to watch out that games could last longer than an hour, not necessary bad. But make shure you have time when you start one :D

It pains me so much doing this as I think Natural Selection 2 is a great concept very well executed. I bought it on launch and never bothered to write a review. After I bought it I played it for half a year and moved to another game, then the reinforcement update hit and I started playing it again and the game was still amazing and had a great community with nice and helpful people and I played the game for another half year. That was 2 years ago. Last week I thought, well let's play Natural Selection 2 again and then I saw a horrible abomination 2 or 3 servers full of toxic people in a further wasteland of empty servers. It had a nice lifetime of about 2 years (and even a small e-sports scene) before it died, which is very good for an indie studio. I wouldn't try to dig up the corpse that once was Natural Selection 2.

Do not buy this game , the creators of the game did leave the game and gave it to the community so its getting patched by the community and only gets worse and worse the engine is running crappy even on a cpu of 3.7 ghz and the loading times are awfull the game was awsome when it got released but now theres only a pile of crap left.
dont spend your money on NS2 if u played the NSmod on halflife because theres nothing left of the game anymore the mod was way better then this game.

Dit spel is super! De gameplay is super en mooie mappen en leuke klasses.. Het spel is wel ff wennen hoe het gaat maar als je het door hebt is het zeer leuk.. Een van de beste shooters die ik ken. Zekers kopen in een sale! Regelmatig updates dus zeker de moeite waard!!
