How many resources does a player get per second (on average) per resource node captured?

How about for the commander?

Does it differ between aliens or marines?

1 Answer 1


Per the NS2 wiki, resource towers provide 0.125 personal resource and 1 team resource every 6 seconds.

It's the same rate for both marines and aliens.

Team resources cap at 200, personal resources cap at 100.

If a player has 100 personal resources and would gain more, the excess is distributed evenly among his teammates.

    As an aside, this means that it takes 60 seconds for a resource tower to pay for itself once it is built. (Alien harvesters take 45 seconds to build, if not being healed)
