<div class="IPBDescription">Got extra copies of NS2 to give away? Want NS2 but can't afford it?</div><b>Take note:</b> This is an experiment. If the forum rules can't be kept to, the thread will be closed permanently.

We've seen a few requests for copies of NS2 recently from people who for whatever reason can't afford the game and happily there have been some friendly people willing to help them. It would probably be best to keep that all in one place, so here's the deal. If you've got an extra copy of NS2 for whatever reason, that you're happy to give away, post here and let people know. If you really <i>really</i> want NS2 but you can't afford it right now, ask here and maybe some generous soul will be able to help you out.

It goes without saying that everything should be above board here. If you're thinking of posting just to have a moan, don't. And a dim view will be taken of any trolling.

    Good Luck to everyone else that wants the gift of NS2, I just wanted to let you know that there are good people on this forum regardless of the trolls.

    Okay Recruit 71-682, i have a Waypoint for you.

    I want you to provide me with a screenshot like this
    <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" class="linked-image" /></a>
    ,posted in this thread, with at least 20hours played.
    Should be enough to get the infestation spreaded.
    The time is because i want to see that you have understood that this is a beta and everything is subject to change.

    I played these 200hours with around 20fps, bad-fps wont be a excuse for not delivering a screenshot.
    Also: no need for trade, if you wish to "revenge" help other peoples that perhaps will post here.

    If you accept this waypoint, pm me your Email and i resend the key#6-mail to you.
    Edit: TSA-Logindata submitted

    Also note that it would be good if future requesters list their hardware !

    I'd really appreciate an NS2 key, I'm nigh on mad for wishing I had it and I'm especially pumped about mapping for it.

    My hardware? i7-720 processor, ATI Radeon HD 5450, 4gb RAM. I can run the games I have on the highest graphics settings available without issue, with remarkably little exception.

    If you throw in that you are interessted in mapping,modding,etc. i would like to see some good references and your ideas and plans with a ns2 key. (i for one, wouldnt give my key to a non artist, or lua guru*)

    *edit: good blogs, videocasters, etc. that want to review and spread the word about ns2 are also welcome. (at least if the site got a bunch of visitors)

    Hi. I have gone by many names over the years. I have been playing NS since it's halloween launch. I was there for the fun and the bugs. The mineral bug that gave marines a win every game wasn't so fun but you know what I mean. Me and my fiance have fallen on hard times as a result of horrible roommates that have decided to give us the shaft every which way they can. As a result I can't afford the pre order and I desperately want to play. I enjoyed NS for years and I always enjoyed the majority of the community.

    If you can help me out please email me at

    Thank you for listening. I really hope you guys are having a blast in there like we did years ago. RUSH JETPACKS!

    Hello all, been lurking here for a while but after finally seeing some recent game-play I decided to get logged in and see what it was all about. Unfortunately I missed the humble promotion and the X-Mas 2 for 1 sale and am strapped for cash at the moment. However, I would like to play this game and am very interested in any extra copies one might have available.


    Here are my Specs:

    Core i7

    Hey guys,

    Long time (NS1 in middle-school) follower here, just noticed this thread so now I look like a schmuck for registering just to post in it.

    Anyways, being the basically broke college student that I am, I would LOVE a copy of NS2. I've been waiting a seriously longtime for this game (and a good FPS in general) and would be deeply grateful for a key.

    Here's to hoping!

    AMD Phenom II 740 3.8ghz
    Nvidia GTX460
    6gb DDR3 1600
    Windows 7 64-bit.

    Edit: Also I just turned 21 in August, so it could be considered a late gift!

    Edit 2: This is officially the greatest community ever. Massive props to the lot of you and even more to the hero of a man who parted with a key!

    Hi, I have been playing NS since it's release on Halloween. I have enjoyed most of the evolution of the game and I am very eager to see what the team can do with an engine other than HL1. I have fallen into some very hard financial times and have not been able to buy any games or anything other than basic needs because our roommates ditched us and didn't pay us back for the help we gave them. So I am a nice guy that got taken for a ride.

    I would very much appreciate any "Generosity" someone can give me. I am going to join the game when I can regardless. I wish I could have pre ordered the special edition =(. I think unknownworlds is great and I owe them alot of thanks for many sleepless nights.

    Hey guys!

    I'd appreciate a copy of NS2, because I'd like to test the game to share my experience with gaming communities which I own. Im the owner of League of Legends Hungary, DOTA2 Hungary, Vindictus Hungary but NS is still an forever loved piece in my heart. I started working as editor at the hungarian website of NS and played countless happy hours with friends and teams:)

    If I can grab a copy and its enjoyable, I have the will to build up a hungarian fan site and infest others too:)

    Best regards

    I'd like to get a friend of mine to play NS2. He regularly plays games online (namely TF2) with a group of about 20 people. Unfortunately, he doesn't want to spend money on a game still in beta.

    As it stands now, I will eventually be able to afford a copy of the game myself, but not my friend. If someone on the forums would be so kind as to get me a copy of the game, then I will use the money I would spend on myself to buy my friend a copy of the game. If he likes it, he'll get his buddies to join him, so there'd be about 20 copies sold.

    Additionally, I am also a fan of NS2HD's videos, and would like to help him out in filming matches. I know he's mentioned his difficulty in filming clan matches in the eastern US/europe, and as I live in the eastern US, I could easily film those for him, so he wouldn't have to get up so insanely early in the morning. Also, if I get a copy of the game very soon, I may be able to help him out with the upcoming tournament.

    Thanks for your time and consideration.

    Hello generous people out there. I'd like, no love... no <b>die</b> for a key to the NS2 beta. I played the original mod since its public release around Halloween many-a-year ago. My days, at that time, consisted of waking up, going to school, and coming home to play Natural Selection. (Screw homework! :P) I grew into the game enormously and participated competitively with teams in the OGL and CAL NS divisions that existed for a few seasons. I've been following the progress of NS2 for what feels like ever now, but never was interested in playing it until I bought this new computer capable of running it... Having it is great and all, but I threw most of my spare money into the machine, leaving me with no money for the games to test it out with!

    So, I'd love nothing more than to fully immerse myself in the Natural Selection world and environments in a whole new way and help test the release of what will undoubtedly be one of my favorite games to ever be launched. Anyone willing to be a Good Samaritan? :D

    I'd love a copy of NS2 if anyone could spare it.

    Been around since '05 and desperately wanna play NS2.
    Shoutouts to G4B2S, I use to play under "theshizzle" on that server all the time.

    Hit me up, Thanks

    I would sincerely appreciate it if someone could spare a key for Natural Selection 2. I've already played Nuclear Dawn, which is probably NS2's closest competitor but it doesnt even come close to the polish this game has in it's current beta incarnation.

    Hey guys!

    First I want to say i have been a huge fan of the game ever since i was just a teenager, from around 2005. After getting out of the army, I was super excited when i heard about NS2 coming playable, but at the same time disappointed coz i didnt have even close enough good comp to run the game. However, a few weeks back i used my savings to get a little boost to my comp, and i think i finally have enough muscle to get the game running. I also started my studies at the uni this autumn, so my budget for anything extra have come somewhat "tight" + i dont even own a credit card to pay things like this over the internet. =/
    That said, i thought to try my luck if there is actually some good hearted willing to help me out bigtime by getting into this great, awesome looking game.
    I would definitely make an awesome Gorge -add amongst you guys, I liked the race so much. =)

    So if there is someone openhanded with an extra key, who is feeling my longing to the game please contact me, my E-mail is:

    Best regards from chilly Finland

    *edit* aight, I found a way paying the game, thanks anyway all, see you ingame! ;)
