Announcing Custom Ruleset 2

Reflex Monthly Cups is happy to announce that we will be conducting a ruleset initiative for community feedback and testing. Now that thousands of matches have been played on the current ruleset, new improvements and refinements can be made. In recent ruleset conversations, there have been many community members with good ideas and a drive to improve the game. We want to translate that interest into a legitimate initiative that will produce results. We are moving forward with this project to promote as much feedback and testing as possible with the end goal of an upgraded ruleset entering the game in place of the current competitive ruleset.

This ruleset initiative will be conducted under the Reflex Monthly Cups umbrella and use the potential of the organization to conduct widespread testing. The development will occur along a specific timeline designed to give the ruleset process the highest exposure, transparency, and opportunity to succeed.

The Custom Ruleset 2 Development Process has been moved to the live game!

With the release of 1.2, ruleset modifications are now available on the main game.
Since it is no longer necessary to test CR2 on an older version of Reflex, CR2 development has moved to the live game!


All CR2 servers have been transferred to the live game and the testing process continues. On March 25th, 17 days from this post, testing will conclude and CR2 will be finalized.
Previous replays of games on CR2 servers have been preserved.

Official CR2 Servers: http://reflex.fun/cr2#Servers
For latest ruleset changes, always play on official CR2 Servers.

How to run CR2 on your server :

-Download the latest version of CR2 and CR2_team rulesets :


-Place both files in your reflexfps folder

-Callvote ruleset CR2 or CR2_team in game to add it


See you all in the upcoming duel cups for North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan as well as the first 2v2 cup!

Custom Ruleset 2 has been finalized!

Custom Ruleset 2 has been finalized, and the CR2 tournaments are here! The goal of Custom Ruleset 2 was to improve the current competitive ruleset by refining balance. After thousands of games on the current ruleset (CR1), some problems with the ruleset became apparent. Issues with the current competitive ruleset were also gathered through the custom ruleset 2 tester starting form.


This in depth poll received 29 responses on the direction the ruleset should move. Some noteworthy results include :

  • Most responders had a positive view of the the current competitive ruleset (CR1)
  • More than half of the responders felt that some weapons were too easy to hit in CR1. Among this majority, 88% said the ion cannon was too easy to hit
  • A significant percentage of responders felt that the current competitive ruleset discouraged aggressive play





Custom Ruleset 2 has specifically addressed these issues, primarily by making major weapons harder to hit and tweaking the other weapons accordingly to retain balanced tiering.

CR2 Changelog: https://reflex.fun/cr2#Changelog

CR2 Config File : https://reflex.fun/ruleset_CR2.cfg


A teammode ruleset was developed along with the main duel ruleset which is the same except for ammo (Box = Weapon pickup).

CR2 Teammode Config File : https://reflex.fun/ruleset_CR2_team.cfg


Testing began on February 15th, and since then, engagement from players has helped guide the ruleset to its final state. CR2 has remained true to its original goal. It has refined the current gameplay with a totally open environment for testing and feedback. Positive improvements have been made throughout the testing process due to community support and meaningful engagement from many different skill levels and viewpoints.

Thank you to all involved.


You can continue to play on the CR2 ruleset using the config file or on official CR2 servers.

All 5 tournaments have been successfully hosted ! 
Congratulations to the winners, thank you to admins, streamers, donators and supporters !
More details can be found here : https://reflex.fun/rmc

During the tournaments, feedback was collected it appeared that some changes were still needed. 
The following changes have been applied to the CR2 ruleset :

- Rocket ammo has been increased from 4/8/16 to 5/10/20 (Box/Wep/Max)
- The CR2_team ruleset has been synced with the CR2 ruleset, it appeared ammo changes did not prove useful, there is now only a single ruleset.

Official CR2 servers (https://reflex.fun/cr2#Servers) have all been updated, we encourage everyone to make the CR2 ruleset available on their server using the official config file : http://reflex.fun/ruleset_CR2.cfg
