If you want to stand on top of the food chain - you need learn from the best and get even better then them.

Hint: Some of these tutorials are focusing on competitive play in ns2 (6vs6), but they are still extremely helpful for normal pub-play! The main difference is that mistakes will be more forgiven on a public server.


More basic Information can you find on the official Natural Selection 2 Wiki Page.
