In video games, capture the flag or CTF is a game mode in which one team tries to steal an object from an enemy team's territory, while protecting their own object. The object (the "flag") is captured when the capturing team safely delivers it to its own territory, while still possessing its own flag. The team with the most flag captures wins the game.

CTF game modes are available in many video games, including Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and World of Warcraft.
