Classic CTF, also known as Classic Mode, is a game mode that features gameplay similar to the 0.x (Voxlap) versions of Ace of Spades.

Gameplay Objective

The Blue Team's Intel
Classic CTF follows similar rules to CTF game modes found in other games. Players must take the enemies team's intel (the 'flag') from their Command Post, and bring it to their own Command Post, all while protecting their own intel and preventing it from being captured.

The only class playable in this game mode is the Deuce. In a Ranked Match, the only weapon available for use is the Classic Rifle along with the Classic Grenade. In a Custom Match, the Classic SMG and Classic Shotgun are also available.

Players stand in their team's Command Post to restore their health and ammunition.


Guarding your Intel

Capturing the other team's intel is the goal of Classic CTF, so protecting your own team's intel is extremely important. There are many ways you can protect your intel, however, the most common way is via an intel tower.

Here are some guidelines when building an intel tower:

  • Your tower must be hard to climb.
  • Your center pillar must have support pillars to the side.
  • Supports must be adequately-spaced.
  • No pillar in the tower should exceed a thickness of 2x2. Otherwise, the enemy can climb up inside
Burying your intel is a bad idea and is never advised. The enemy can just tunnel under your base, grab your intel, and run off with it before you even realize what happened.

For more help there is a forum thread on Build and Shoot with some interesting towers you can possibly construct.
