Capture building icon
Once purchased from any faction's (except ECA) barracks, basic infantry are trained to capture neutral and enemy buildings (including superweapons).

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. Base defenses, however cannot be captured.

Units affected by this upgrade include:

Black Lotus and the ECA Engineer have this ability by default.


  • The upgrade will be removed in 1.87, as all basic infantry will be able to capture buildings by default.
