Team flags are supplied by the server in the [[CTF|capture-the-flag]] style game.  While at least one player is on a team, that team's flag is in the game. When captured, the flag is returned to the team's [[base]]. If the flag is dropped in a bad place, it is moved to a  safety  position. Bad places are on top of a building or on an enemy team base.  The flag can be dropped on a team base only by a player from a third  team; for example, when a blue player drops the red flag on the green base.

What are flags?

Flags are, well, flags. They can be picked up by the tanks and modify their behaviour. In general there are good and bad superflags and team flags. They are one of the key factors how to kill the other tanks.

Team Flags

Team flags are supplied by the server in the capture-the-flag style game. While at least one player is on a team, that team's flag is in the game. When captured, the flag is returned to the team's base. If the flag is dropped in a bad place, it is moved to a safety position. Bad places are on top of a building or on an enemy team base. The flag can be dropped on a team base only by a player from a third team; for example, when a blue player drops the red flag on the green base.

A team flag is captured when a tank takes an enemy flag onto its base or when a tank takes its flag onto an enemy base (even if there's no one playing on that team). You must be on the ground to capture a flag.

Good superflags

Flag Abbr Description
High Speed V Boosts top speed by 50%.
Quick Turn QT Boosts turn rate by 50%.
Agility A Improves the dodging capabilities of the tank.
Oscillation Overthruster OO Lets the tank go through buildings. You cannot back up in or into a building, nor can you shoot while inside.
Rapid Fire F Increases shot speed and decreases range and reload delay.
Machine Gun MG Increases shot speed and dramatically decreases range and reload delay.
Guided Missile GM Shots guide themselves when locked on. The missile can be retargeted at any time during its flight (with the right mouse button). This allows the player some control over the missile steering.
Laser L Shoots a laser, with effectively infinite speed and range. Just point and shoot. The binoculars are handy for lining up distant targets. The downside (you knew it was coming) is that the reload time is doubled.
Ricochet R Shots reflect off walls. It is exceptionally easy to kill yourself with this flag.
Super Bullet SB Shots can go through buildings (possibly destroying a tank with the oscillation overthruster flag) and can also destroy (phantom) zoned tanks.
Stealth ST Tank becomes invisible on radar but is still visible out-the-window.
