Race is a game mode where players compete to finish a run through set of checkpoints in the lowest time.


Race mode was first available in KTPro. Similar modes are known in other games also - DeFRaG in Quake 3 Arena for example, race mode in Warsow.


In pre-war mode, that is when no match is going on on the server, start point, end point and checkpoints are placed in the map, players sign-in for the race mode and compete one by one trying to run through given path achieving the best (lowest) possible time. Usage of rocket launcher can be toggled so players can use it to gain speed from splash damage kick.


On servers with KTX mod type race to load a pre-set routes for current map OR create your custom ones, using race_set_start, race_set_checkpoint, race_set_finish to add checkpoints, starting and end points manually.

To remove Race, simply reload the map. Race also gets automatically removed after all players get ready.
To turn off Race mode, simply type /race command again.
