Battlefield 4 Capture The Flag


Battlefield 4 capture the flagBattlefield 4 Capture The Flag is a multiplayer game mode that was introduced with the Second Assault DLC. Capture The Flag in Battlefield 4 is very similar to previous games: each team has a flag, and the objective is to capture the enemy flag and return it to the home base. Each capture scores one point. Matches usually go on until one team reaches 3 to 5 points, depending on the game settings.

Capture The Flag is the second new game mode introduced with DLC, the first one being Air Superiority.

Battlefield 4 Capture The Flag rules

The objective in Battlefield 4 Capture The Flag mode is to capture the enemy flag and return it to the home base. Players can only capture the flag when on foot. As soon as the player touches the flag, it’s automatically captured, and the player is then free to use any vehicles to quickly bring to to the home base.

Battlefield 4 Capture The Flag tips

Capture the Flag is game mode where speed is always the key. Once the flag has been captured, the player with the flag will be targeted by the enemy, and will be easily visible on the map. Therefore, using quick vehicles such as the Dirtbike and the Quad Bike is always the best choice. Teamwork is also important, as team members should work to defend the flag carrier, and defend their own flag as well.

      You need to purchase(15-20$) the expansion pack, I believe its the “2nd assault”. Its not out yet at the moment, but if you were a premium subscriber you’ll get early access to it.

    The option came up for us today for capture the flag but it’s saying we’re missing dlcs. But if you search for servers with it as an option no servers show.. I do have premium, did they jump the gun on releasing it without fixing bugs or something or is it something we have to download from somewhere? Anyone know?

    I have Premium with China Rising. I can see “Capture The Flag” as a menu choice, but it still says I’m missing DLCs, so I can’t use it. (19 Feb, 2014)

    I mostly only play CTF mode in these games.

    Are you kidding? I just got a game that retails for SIXTY dollars and I have to pay $15 more just to play CTF?!???

    Somebody please tell me, is some way that I can make EA pay me $15? Because I don’t like bending over and letting them screw me without doing the same back to them. 🙁
