Capture the Flag (CTF) is a team-based multiplayer game mode featured in every Modern Combat game since Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus.

Players are divided into 2 teams, with the objective being to capture the opposing team's flag and return it to your base. The first team which meets the flag capture limit, or which captures the most flags within the time limit wins the match. The location of the enemy's flag will be always visible on the mini-map.

Players can pick up an enemy flag by touching it. After picking up the enemy flag, a player must bring it back to their own team's flag stand in order to score 1 point - however they can only bring back to their stand provided that their own flag is still there (meaning that if an enemy player is holding their team's flag flag, it must be recovered first).

Flags stolen by enemy players can be recovered by dispatching the enemy player and touching the flag after it has been dropped - at which point it will instantly appear back at the base of the player's team. If a player is carrying an opponent's flag, their location will be marked on-screen for all enemy players (but not on the mini-map).

Modern Combat 5: Blackout[edit | edit source]

Capture the Flag in Modern Combat 5: Blackout follows the same conventional rules as in previous titles. Teams must capture as many flags from the opposing team as possible within a 7 minute time limit. The team which has capture the most flags at the end of the time limit, or the first team to capture a total of 3 flags wins the match. Military Support and team auto-balance are in effect in this mode.

If both teams' score is tied at the end of the time limit, the match enters Sudden Death - in which both teams battle each other without any player respawns (meaning that death is permanent for a player). The first team which captures 1 flag from the opposing team, or which eliminates all opposing players wins the match.
