NS2+ or NS2Plus is a mod, initially developped by Mendasp and later purchased by Unknown Worlds (UWE), that aims to improve, fix and expand NS2 in order to bring players a better experience. It contains extra customization options and quality of life improvements. This mod needs to be installed on the server. You can also subscribe to the mod on the Steam Workshop (ID: 334982d2) to be able to access the NS2+ Options from the main menu.

It also brings more players' information when you die and at the end of a round (see Stats UI in the Stats category below to enable or disable it).

Press the X next to the option you want to manually reset, if it doesn't show, that means the option is already default.

Click on RESET NS2+ Values to reset all the options.

Default values are in orange.
