• BUT, you can only “cap” when your flag is in your base too!
This makes it harder!
• The match ends when one team reaches the
“cap” limit (this is usually 10 “caps”)
• Always be sure of your
team, and remember to move VERY quickly!
the flag (CTF from here on in) is a team-based mode of Xonotic: You and
your team are pitted against another (Blue/ Red) in a fight over
property and territory. Each member can make a dash for the opposition’s
flag, but scoring then requires a tactical retreat to your own base,
and ensuring that your own team’s flag is still at the base when you
return. This can take great skill on the part of a team, and great
coordination. A team finally wins when they reach the capture limit: 10
Caps (usually. Some servers may differ.) There are other ways of
scoring in CTF SniperArena, for example, fragging a flag carrier, but
the path to the most points still lies as a flag carrier........
strangely though, under the default scoring system in Xonotic, there are
no points awarded for regular frags in CTF... In SniperArena u can
collect health and armor to stay alive abit longer an Headshot brings
more damage than an body shot. We also have dodging on the server and if
ur on the ground and dubbel tap ur move direction key
“up,down,left,right” u will get a boosted move in that direction
CTF SniperArena , at the start of a match, all members of a team tend
to start in their base or in a neutral area of the playing field. Each
team’s respective flag is also situated within the centre of their base,
guarded. The aim is to enter the enemy base, snag their flag, and
return it to your flag, at your base. But you can only score a “cap” if
your flag is at your base too.
When you finally grab the
flag, MOVE QUICKLY!! Return to your base! If the enemy has your flag,
rmember to hide and wait for your team to return it before showing
yourself and heading to your base to score. If you don’t manage to evade
or frag members of the opposing team, you will drop the flag!
flag carriers tend to be skilled players. Beware them. BUT try to frag
the enemy carrying your flag at all costs! If he returns to his base,
the enemy will score!
If a flag is dropped into an area of
the map which causes death, the flag will remain there, unaffected by
physics....these are opportunities to grab it. Though this is difficult
to do without touching the effected ground yourself! The only exception
to this rule is when the flag drops of the edge of a level, in which
case it will be returned to its home base in a few seconds.
of campers: there are an extra breed of camper which only appear in
CTF....these people wait at the opposing team’s base, waiting for the
flag to be returned. These people annoy true flag carriers, as many are
unskilled at flag carrying and take the opportunity away from others of
carrying the flag. Try not to be one of those people.
picking up the enemy flag: 25 points

• don't take unnecessary risks as a Flag Carrier
your Flag carrier
• attack opposing Flag Carriers in groups (2 or
more players are best)
• when an opposing team collects your flag,
pursue and attack. Swarm as a team.
• Work as a team, teamwork is the
key. If everyone tries to camp for the flag, loss is unavoidable.
Know the map layout: you cant speedily return to your base without
knowing the fastest (or most winding if you want to lose the enemy)
• Collect a lot of Health and Armor but don’t take it from ur
own Flag carrier if he needs it
