Capture Building is an upgrade available to all factions (except ECA), enabling their basic infantry to capture buildings.
Once purchased from any faction's barracks (excluding ECA's), basic infantry are trained to capture buildings. Both neutral buildings, and enemy buildings (including Super-weapons) can be captured. Base defenses, however cannot be captured. In order to capture a building, the infantry unit must come very close to building. Capturing a building requires several seconds, during which infantry units capturing building are vulnerable to enemy fire. Basic Infantry units, deployed via general powers, can also capture buildings with this upgrade.
Units affected by this upgrade include:
- Rangers and Green Berets (USA)
- Rebels and Fanatics (GLA)
- Red Guards (China)
- Conscripts and VDV LMG troopers (Russia)
This upgrade is not available to ECA, as it deploys engineers to capture buildings.
