Vehicle Capture the Flag (VCTF) is a gametype introduced in Unreal Tournament 2004. The main goal is like in Capture the Flag to steal the flag from your enemy and protect your own. Additionally there are vehicles available, but no Translocator.

Lack of support in Unreal Tournament 2004

An official VCTF map for Unreal Tournament 2004 has never been released. The gametype doesn't show up until there is a VCTF map placed in the maps folder or the patch 3355 is installed.[1] Despite all of these obstacles the gametype got quite popular and gained many maps, although the quality of many is disputed.

Flag transportation in vehicles

In general a flag carrier may enter a vehicle, however there are some restrictions. If a flag carrier enters a Manta, Raptor or Cicada he automatically drops the flag for balancing reasons. However there is a way to get around this restriction: a player can stand on top of a Manta while another player is driving it. This is a so called Manta run.

Unreal Tournament 3

Unreal Tournament 3 shipped with 6 maps for Vehicle Capture the Flag. Every player spawns with a Hoverboard.

Flag transportation in vehicles

It is not allowed to enter any vehicles when carrying a flag, but it is possible to use the Hoverboard and grapple onto a vehicle. Manta runs are now impossible, since players bounce off the Manta.
