Kombat Teams eXtreme (KTX) is a QuakeWorld® server modification designed to enhance gameplay and provide players with several different playmodes.
Inspired by KTPro (a non opensource QuakeWorld® server modification), KTX has been developed to provide the QuakeWorld© community with a more evolving opensource code and is based on Kombat Teams 2.21.

KTX also provides administrators with a lot of features to control how the server behaves and what the players have access to and can change, along with detailled statistics.
Play modes provided
- TDM (1on1, 2on2, 3on3, 4on4...)
